We will have mashed purple potatoes, roasted Brussels Sprouts (my favorite thing), biscuits, and pumpkin pie. That is really more than enough food for the four of us. When we go to the IL's I will probably make pumpkin bars (also gluten free, I can't have gluten).
Would you mind posting your recipe fir GF pumpkin pie? Thanks

Re: Thanksgiving menu!

Mashed rutabaga...my favorite. This year I am responsible for making pumpkin cream pie, deviled eggs, and an onion tart to bring to my parents house. My mother and I are going to try to do as much ahead of time as we can so we can enjoy the day. We've also decided my three girls will be on clean up duty (though we'll do our best to keep mess at a minimum).

This is the best one I've ever had, it is so easy to make and tastes wonderful. I have only done it with brown sugar, can't vouch for how it turns out with any other sweetener. She has a really good no bake chocolate pumpkin pie as well but I think it tastes more chocolatey thank pumpkiny. I have noticed a new pumpkin pie recipe on her site but haven't tried it yet so I don't know how it turns out. She also has some new crust recipes that are supposed to work with GF flour.

Re: Thanksgiving menu!

DH makes a tasty sweet potato "side dish" that tastes like pumpkin pie filling and could easily be eaten for dessert. He also makes a vegetarian stuffing/dressing in a pie pumpkin, that tastes almost as good as my mother's sausage stuffing. And I make baking powder biscuits with yogurt, and homemade cranberry relish with orange peel and cinnamon. The fancy cheeses and cracker plates with venison summer sausage, plus black olive/carrot/celery/pickle relish trays are also very popular. Pumpernickel bread and spinach dip (store bought cold, or homemade hot spinach dip). Tomato torte. So many tasty things, and we only get to pick 1-2/holiday to bring with us to the big family gathering.

Curried yams! Yams, cut into chunks, tossed in olive oil and curry powder. Roasted in the oven. So yummy, and a new twist on a traditional Thanksgiving item.

Re: Thanksgiving menu!

I have to have creamed pearl onions but I prefer them in a cheese sauce. Also mashed rutabaga.

Re: Thanksgiving menu!

I love smoked turkey. My stepdad's been doing a smoked turkey or two for the past few years. So juicy!!!

I love a savory spicy sweet potato salad made with southwest veggies and a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce blended (with oil and vinegar) into a sauce. I'm acutally eating it for dinner tonight

Re: Thanksgiving menu!

I make roasted roots with sweet potatoes, rutabaga, parsnips, beets, etc instead of the more traditional "sweet" sweet potato side dishes, and it has turned into a must-have now for my family. I usually make a balsamic glaze so it still has a bit of sweetness but is mostly savory. So yummy!
