so, here's the deal. i'm newly moved in with my boyfriend, across the country from my family. since going to my mom's is sadly not an option, i hear thanksgiving will be at boyfriend's grandma's house. before i moved, every thanksgiving dinner at my mom's was a non-issue, as i'd just bring my own vegan stuff over and cook things i wanted to eat. no problem, no awkwardness.
i am not about to do the same this year. so, i don't quite know what to do. boyfriend says i should just bring my own (i'm assuming ready-made?) things to eat, that his grandma is pretty easygoing. i'm concerned about making a bad impression or insulting her and whomever else may be cooking the meal. but i'm also concerned that there won't be anything there i'll be able to eat. if i eat little or nothing, that would also be awkward, and insulting to the hostess.
anyone been in a similar situation before? what shall i do?
