Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!
Over the past week, I have talked with a lot of people who are thinking about the upcoming holidays and how to enjoy them with dietary restrictions. If it were just the food, it would be one thing. But, as we all know, it's so much more than just planning "safe" meals. It's traveling, it's eating away from home (i.e. the "safe zone"), it's telling people we love that we can't eat that pie that they slaved over because we're allergic to it. Ahhh, food allergies. When it all becomes too overwhelming, I always try to remember that it could be worse.

Now, back to the easy part...the food. If you're looking for a traditional Thanksgiving menu free of the top 8 allergens, then look no further! The menu that I prepare most Thanksgivings can be found here. Hands down, the most popular recipe on this menu (and at Eating With Food in general) is the turkey veggie platter. When my kids and I made that turkey several years ago, I had no idea it would strut around the internet like it has (thanks, Pinterest!) It's fun to make, fun to eat and fun to share with family.

Wishing you a happy, healthy and safe Thanksgiving! Gobble, gobble! :)

Gluten and Dairy Free Turkey Stroganoff

This happens to be one of my oldest son's favorite meals at the moment (if you're a parent, you know that these things change as often as the weather). The last time we had it, he ate three servings and requested it for lunch the next day...and the day after that!

We serve our stroganoff over corn penne pasta (I buy it at Trader Joe's) but you could serve it over mashed potatoes, rice or your favorite pasta. Click here to go to the recipe.
