I love this. This is the rule that stands in our house too! There is just a nice ritual about decorating over the long Thanksgiving Holiday.

But…that does not mean that the holiday menu planning has to wait. I know that I, along with many of my food-blogging friends have already started thinking of the fun gluten free and allergy friendly recipes we are going to be sharing with all of you.

A Gluten-Free Holiday….

Amy, of Simply Sugar and Gluten Free (the official host)

Every week we’ll have a give-away, too. You can link up or leave a comment to enter.
