We had a Christmas party last weekend. Normally people bring food but this year, we asked everyone not to bring food. If anyone wanted to bring something, they could bring drinks. For my first Christmas being gluten-free, we thought it would be easier for us to prepare all the food. We had a special guest, as you can see above – a life size cardboard cutout of Rob Gronkowski from the Patriots.
Tomato, basil, and mozzarella
Mi-Del Ginger Snaps with Pillsbury Vanilla frosting
I didn’t get pictures of everything. We also had Applegate gluten-free chicken nuggets with garlic/rosemary roasted red potatoes on skewers, a gluten-free pumpkin cheesecake with a gingersnap crust and tons of tortilla chips. My family makes a dip that is always a hit – it’s cream cheese, salsa, topped with shredded cheese, baked for about 10-15 minutes – also gluten-free. All the non gluten-free folks seemed to like the food too, so that was good. This gets a ghetto gluten-free tag because the only “cooking” it required was the potatoes and heating things up in the oven.
I hope you all have a great holiday!
