A lot has been going on lately and I haven't had a chance to blog! Here are some updates:
I'm now the Chicago Gluten Free Examiner! Yay! I just started out and I'm trying to post on both this site and on Examiner.com. It's very time consuming to say the least! Please visit my page, comment, add me as your favorite Examiner, and subscribe to my updates! If you'd like to become an Examiner, I encourage you to apply. You'll earn a little extra money while you're at it! Just be sure to list me as the person who referred you. ;-)
I recently read Healthier without Wheat by Dr. Stephen Wangen and was fascinated. Even though I've been living gluten free for almost ten years, this book really opened up my eyes to all of the other ailments that gluten intolerance can cause. I've been recommending it to everyone and Babs is now reading it loves it too! I wrote a review on my examiner site. Check it out!
Happily, I attended a White Sox game earlier this week and had a Redbridge Beer and a hot dog sans bun with lots of grilled onions and mustard! Yummmmmmmm!! My friend who can have gluten also bought a Redbridge (the last one) and said it was good! Sadly it was my first game of the season (pathetic, I know...) and the season is almost over. Even sadder, I chit-chatted with the beer man who told me they sell about one Redbridge every five games. I wrote an email to the White Sox people thanking them for having gluten free beer at their ball park. I would hate for them to discontinue that service to Sox fans because it doesn't sell that well.
We've "fallen" into autumn this week. I'm excited to whip up some great recipes for soups, pies, and crisps. I'm going apple picking this weekend and will be sure to share my recipes for some yummy apple treats! In the meantime, I will leave you with these beauties:
Betty Crocker chocolate chip cookies, and boy were they good! I even made ice cream sandwiches with them. I didn't take a picture, but I just put vanilla ice cream in between two cookies, wrapped the sandwiches in foil and stuck them in the freezer for a few hours. Those Nestle Tollhouse Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches can step aside!
