Gluten-Free Vegetarian House Guests, and a Week of Food

My mother is visiting from Tuesday evening through Saturday so I have to take her food sensitivities and politics into account (along side my own). I’m coming up with gluten-free, soy-free, corn-free, egg-free vegetarian meals. I have thanksgiving planned, but it sort of feels like a thanksgiving of side dishes. Any other ideas would be so greatly appreciated!!

This weeks limitations mean that we have to eat up some of our poultry and wheat based foods early in the week so that they don’t spoil– this makes the beginning of our week repetitive. It is hard to work with this many constraints! . . . If you have any great ideas for the rest of the week and can help me fill in the gaps, leave me a message.
