Gluten-Free Thanksgiving

November 22, 2010

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday which is why in any given year we celebrate this holiday twice. Really, it, is the only holiday that our Jewish / Catholic family hybrid shares so we try to make sure that everyone gets a visit. This year, because of our crazy work/ grad school schedule, we couldn’t celebrate our second Thanksgiving on the Friday after so we celebrated it one week early. Which is why I am able to bring you these recipes to you pre Thanksgiving day. Both Mark and I took the day off and spent it cooking, cleaning and figuring out how to fit 8 people around a table that barely seats 6!

This year’s extra Thanksgiving was especially tasty and exceptionally fun. Our home was filled with great food and wonderful family and friends. The following links (all recipes that I made for the meal) will give you some recipe ideas to make your gluten-free table a success.

Roast Turkey with Gravy
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Crust-less Pumpkin Pie

This meal would not have been complete without the accompaniments provided by our wonderful guests. The meal was complete with appetizers (artichoke dip and brie topped with Dijon peppers and onions), wine, salad, home made cranberry sauce, dessert (pumpkin cake and walnut bark)  and love. I will share the recipes from our guests as soon as they email them. The real mark of success came when Mark, my husband who is usually a bottomless pit, couldn’t consume another morsel of food. This was the ultimate complement to the chefs.

I hope that you all have a fabulous holiday filled with fun, laughter and amazing food. Please share in the comments section, your favorite Thanksgiving traditions and recipes.
