What to do to welcome traveling gluten-free family

I have a friend who has a new sister-in-law who is gluten-free and so Kristen was hoping to make her delicious gluten-free dinner rolls for Thanksgiving dinner. Unfortunately, I have no recipe to give her, I haven't been baking since February and I hadn't build up any go-to recipes prior to that.

Then I started thinking how I would much rather have a sandwich bread for left overs than a dinner roll - then again dinner rolls have never really been my thing.

Then I started thinking about what would make me feel really welcome at Thanksgiving and I came up with this list:
  • a new unopened jar of peanut butter
  • a separate stick of butter or tub of butter spread
  • a new jar of mayo or Miracle Whip
  • a loaf or two of sandwich bread and a plan to heat it up
  • some gluten-free canned soup for a snack or in case I don't feel the meal is safe
  • being included in during the cooking plans, I may be able to tell you a simple thing to do to make the dish gluten free
  • showing a willingness to learn so that I do feel safe eating what you have cooked - and don't be afraid to say "don't eat that, I didn't know how to make it gluten-free"

I know there are other things that I am not even thinking of - what would you suggest be added to this list?
