Amy has some great ideas this week for making a gluten-free Thanksgiving stress-free and delicious, too. Enjoy! — Denise
Here are some tips for taking the stress out and putting the fun back in.
Eating at someone else’s home?
- Interview your host: find out what they are serving and how they cook. Little things can make the meal sharable: for example, gluten-free flour is an easy replacement in holiday gravy.
- Not comfortable telling them what you need? Offer to bring something.
- Get in the kitchen and help with the preparation: you’ll be the sweetest guest at the party and know exactly what you can and cannot eat.
Hosting your own holiday?
- Be honest: let guests know what is and isn’t allowed in your home.
- Feel safer cooking everything at home? Have your guests come early, so they can help in the preparation.
- Guests often want to contribute a food item. If all else fails, have them bring the drinks!
This week’s recipe is one of my favorite parts of the meal: the stuffing (or dressing). Crunchy, chewy, salty and sweet, all at the same time, I love the GF Stuffing with Celery, Cranberries, and Pecans. Plus, this one is gluten-free and dairy-free. Sounds like a delicious holiday meal is headed our way!
