Our Christmas Menu

December 21, 2011

This year, we’re staying home for Christmas, so I decided it would be a good time to cook my first turkey dinner. Here is my menu plan for Sunday:

Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Soy-free

  • Turkey. Ironically, while the cheap generic turkey was flavored with real butter, Butterball turkeys were free of allergens. I haven’t decided exactly how I’ll season it, but it will involve olive oil and rubbing under the skin.
  • Corn – boil frozen corn in salted water
  • Carrots – after boiling, drizzle with olive oil and pepper
  • Mashed potatoes – made with dairy-free, soy-free buttery spread, rice milk, and chicken broth
  • Gravy – packet that came with turkey (to be honest, I haven’t called to verify that everything is free of gluten, but since Joseph’s reactions are fairly mild when he eats it, I’m willing to take a chance)
  • Crescent Rolls from Free For All Cooking
  • Martinellis Sparkling Cider
  • Rice Krispy Treats (with strawberry or peppermint (if I go buy them) marshmallows)

Not Joseph-safe

  • Rolls
  • Jell-O (made with sour cream)
  • Pecan Tarts

How do you handle feasts when needing to accommodate those with allergies? What are your favorite dishes to make for holidays that those with and without allergies can enjoy?
