I am so sorry you have such rude in-laws!  I know what rude in-laws are like, my Brother-In-Law has 0 manners and no respect for anybody or anything!  You need to have a serious talk with your hubby about the situation. You have to do what’s best for you.  If that means taking them to a hotel, then you need to do it.  Pack up their stuff yourself if you have to. Change the locks!  Do whatever it takes!  I’m so sorry you’re going through this.  It seems so ridiculous, they’re practically treating your house like a hotel anyway!

@Arancia:Thanks for explaining!  I had no idea, any of the others I have been around must have been mild cases.  

I would totally look into getting them a hotel.  See if you can find one that is nearby and see what they say.  I wouldn’t really give them the choice, just say, we have booked you a room down the street for the remainder of your stay.

I think you and hubs need to sit down and give them a talking to. Explain exactly what Celiac disease is, and why you can’t be around their food and they can’t contaminate your food areas. Tell them that if they can’t respect the fact that they may KILL YOU by being ignorant assholes, then they need to get the hell out and go stay in a hotel!!!

But, they are diplomats, so maybe they know someone in Canada they can stay with who are also snobbish and can understand how they think?? Seriously though, I really would tell them they need to respect you and your house, especially the kitchen or they need to find other arrangements

Oh, I am sooo sorry that you are going through this.  I have heard of Celiac Disease, but I didn’t know much about it.  But I know that if someone explained that even small amounts of gluten – even in the air, or on “contaminated utensils and cookware would be a problem, and would make them ill, I certainly would not be making food in their kitchen.  I am sorry that your husband didn’t just tell them that they couldn’t stay with you this visit, and that they would have to stay in a hotel  –Before they came!  Heck, if they won’t leave, -maybe you can!!!  How far does your family live from you-Can you suddenly have to stay there for a “certain reason”.  Maybe your husband will FIND A WAY to get it across that what they are doing is NOT OKAY- (because you aren’t there).  So sorry.   🙁

Oh-and I’d have your husband throw out their food-not you, so they can’t blame you for throwing the food out.

Well that’s interesting to see, at least they know how to be guests.  Too bad they don’t feel the need to be courteous to their own family though.

Could you buy them some gluten-free flours and say this is the only flours that can be used here since they like cooking from scratch.

Also, is your husband going to tell them it’s a gluten-free kitchen?  Someone should tell/enforce the rule.
