Is anyone else freaking out that Thanksgiving is THIS WEEK? I went to the store this weekend and I wondered why it was so nuts. And then I realized…dear God, Thanksgiving is THIS WEEK. HELP I’m planning a gluten-free Thanksgiving and I have NOTHING READY! I put together a ton of links that will help you out, from the main meal to dessert. Hopefully, this helps you as much as it is going to help me!
Yes, we all need to understand how to work with friends and family this Thanksgiving. There will probably be jokes made at your expense. There will probably be people offering unsafe people.
