I am sitting here watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with my boys and getting ready to make some food for our Thanksgiving dinner. I am so excited that almost the entire meal with my family will be safe for Brody (milk, egg and peanut free)! It makes it less stressful and I want him to be able to enjoy the foods that are a part of our family traditions.
I am thankful that we have a much better handle on the food allergies today than we did last year, but we still have some reactions now and then (example: someone kissed Brody on Halloween who had just eaten chocolate and Brody had a skin reaction). It is really amazing how far we have come in a year. If you are just starting this journey, I want to encourage you that it does get easier as you get comfortable with what foods/products are safe.
Wishing you and your family a wonderful, memorable, safe Thanksgiving!
Here are a just a few highlights of what we will be having....
Organic Turkey cooked with lots of fresh herbs/with homemade safe gravy
Roasted Asparagus (bake on 400 for about 10 minutes with extra virgin olive oil salt and pepper...can add freshly squeezed lemon juice for extra flavor)
*Ordered a wheat, egg, milk, peanut free Pumpkin Pie from Aunt April's Bakery
*I love this idea as an appetizer or a centerpiece
