Everyday eating with assorted weird allergies is hard enough and the holidays are tricky because we all have favorite foods that just spell the holiday in our memories. Even foods that are now off limits due to allergies, intolerences and just plain old fashioned unexplainable hives. Ah!, hives for the holidays again?… No thanks.
I will be making the full gluten exposure version of dinner for those that refuse to give up their gluten. Silly people. Go ahead, knock yourselves out. Just don’t make me eat it.
So, then the rest of us will have the no-gluten identical dinner. Somehow I do this in the tiniest kitchen in America. I don’t know how, but it seems to work out okay.
I have Thanksgiving my way. Baked chicken, gluten-free stuffing, orange-apricot jello salad, green bean casserole.. (Who brought the green bean cassERole?), big salad, and a nice veggie assortment along with some pickles and some sort of dip that I can have.
Along with watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade and sleeping during the football game, isnt’ comfort food what it’s really all about? Oh, and thanks. I am thankful that there is any kind of food left on the planet that I can eat.
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
