Somehow Thanksgiving is almost here and this year I’m headed to the folks’ place. Since I’ll be getting on a plane in just a couple of weeks and the days and nights will be packed, I need to tell my mother what to stock the house with for my “special needs” recipes.
The wonderful thing about my parents’ house and most especially about my mother is that gluten-free and dairy free are easy. No stretch here. No crazy substitutions and nothing I drool over while sadly eating some dry nothingness. Nope. Yes, my sister will likely make her famous pecan tart and my brother might make his amazing yeast rolls, so we have to be extra sure that there is plenty for me and my dietary needs cousins to feast upon.
