Christmas Menu 2013 (GAPS, Autoimmune Paleo/AIP, Grain- & Gluten-free)

Christmas at my house is filled with great memories. Growing up, my small family celebrated by opening up presents and then going to my Nana’s house for dinner.

Our traditions were to prepare the same favorite Southern classics each holiday and to gather together and reminisce by telling stories of the past.

New Traditions

Since hubby and I got married, we’ve hosted both sides of the family at our house and my small, quiet Christmas got kicked up a notch or two.

Five people became fourteen, and a combination of Italian and Southern classics with a new focus on allergies has turned dinner on its ear.

This year, there will only be one dish that we have to avoid — Nana’s cornbread stuffing. My mom will bring it for the purists.

Everything else will be a combination of the classics with a new spin on healthy, allergen-free, and mostly Autoimmune Paleo compliant. It will also be ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS because that’s how we roll.

I hope you are having a wonderful, wonderful holiday season and wish you good food and warm memories.

All I can say is Er.Mah.Gerd. The caramel sauce just made me weak in the knees and I may have just eaten it by the spoonful before putting it in the fridge.

Okay, I did.
