I don't cook the Thanksgiving dinner--my relatives do (they own a diner and they close it for the public on holidays and the family gets together there--so they make everything there pretty much).
They had turkey, ham, and 2 types of kielbasa--but also tons and tons of stuff I could eat:
baked rounds of sweet potatoes with brown sugar-butter glaze
cranberry sauce--both canned and homemade
raw veggie platter w/sour cream dip
And it's not vegetarian but I ate some shrimp w/cocktail sauce (I eat seafood on rare occasions--the next time will be Christmas Eve when they have the shrimp as well as fried haddock)
Things that were vegetarian but I didn't have because they contain gluten:
bread tray w different types of bread and butter
I did bring my 'world famous salad' (that was a joke) of shredded lettuce, shredded carrots for color, a block of crumbled NY style extra sharp cheddar, HB eggs, and 3 Cheese Ranch dressing.
I also made cookies and candy--all gluten-free: pumpkin-walnut fudge, pumpkin shortbread, pumpkin raisin cookies w/orange-cream cheese glaze, and cranberry pecan bread (also drizzled with some orange-cream cheese glaze on top).
I also did eat some pie--there were many different types (pumpkin--duh--apple crumb, peanut butter chocolate mousse, lemon meringue) I ate slivers of some of them including most of the crust....I don't have celiac's but am just gluten intolerant---I can have a 'little' gluten without much effect--just not alot.
