Happy Thanksgiving

I am preparing a gluten-free Thanksgiving meal today. We are having chicken instead of turkey because I like chicken better. I am better at cooking chicken. So that is what we are having. We are also having corn bread dressing. I made the cornbread with garbanzo bean flour instead of wheat flour. It tastes just fine. There will be green beans and a green salad, along with some kind of potato dish. We haven't decided on that, yet. We are having a fourless chocolate torte for dessert. It is from a Williams Sonoma cookbook.

I am thankful for...
  • Steady jobs for both Dave and myself
  • Healthy, happy children
  • The gluten-free section at Whole Foods
  • Good food
  • Good friends
I hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving.

Good girl. We did gluten-free this year, too. It was interesting. I also kept sugar-free and dairy-free. It was challenging, but amazing how everything tasted pretty traditional. And pretty good.

BTW, I use brown rice flour. It makes a great roux for thickening gravy, and it makes a decent crispy coating for fish and chicken. I make a mean creamed spinach with it and soy milk. It tastes a tiny bit glue-y to me, but Jim thinks it's just fine.
