Turkey Day stress
My mom and I are trying to plan out the menu for Thanksgiving. This will be our first gluten free turkey day. To make it more of a challenge my brother is a vegetarian. There will be (at most) six people in attendance. At this point mom is planning on making a stuffed turkey for her and dad, turkey breast with gf stuffing for me, and a fake turkey for my brother. Insane! She just refuses to cook the full turkey without stuffing it. I think it is a needless amount of extra cooking, but it is her decision. The thing we are stuck on right now is what to do about a stuffing/dressing for my turkey. Does anyone have a gf stuffing recipe? Any ideas for a substitution for condensed cream of mushroom soup? (The really sad part of all of this is that I finally worked along side Mom last year to learn how to make all our traditional T-Day dishes. Now I can't eat a bunch of them.) New traditions. That's what we need.
