We've been invited to another's house for this Thxgiving & the host is aware of my being GF, but that I can eat pretty much anything else. I don't want to be "that person" (anymore) where special things need to be cooked/prep'd/made... so I said that the "usual" fixings are fine, not to go outta the way.
Knowing the type of food these folks eat is no paleo/GF/healthy (IMO)... I'm concerned about not appearing gracious. Seeing as I'm confident all I'll be eating will be turkey & a small (cheat) helping of mashed potatoes.
I was asked to bring a side if I choose & drinks.
Now, the difficult part is in choosing a side that others would partake... other than myself that doesn't compete with what the host has already made. (bread stuffing, candied yams, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, canned cranberry sauce, pie/cookies/brownies for dessert.)
I do plan on having a very large breakfast that day (eggs, bacon, coffee w/cream & maybe fruit) to keep me satiated so I can do the "boy, we had such a big holiday breakfast, my appetite just isn't there." ;)
What recommendations/advice would you have for me?
