Email Gluten-free is Life

Rainy Sunday

Greetings blog readers! It is a super rainy Sunday here in Central Ohio. The high temperature isn’t even supposed to hit 60 degrees. I’ll take this over the sweltering heat, though. I love fall and the cool, crisp air that comes along with it. I love the colorful leaves. The day here and there of rain is worth the rest of the fall days.

Before I get to my weekly menu plan, I wanted to remind you to enter the Gluten-Free Bisquick giveaway. The giveaway ends tonight at midnight, so don’t miss your chance! This is the perfect opportunity for those of you who can’t find the new Bisquick in stores close to you.

Halloween candy has been on my mind since my vision is bombarded with it every time I walk into a grocery store. I have been a good girl, though, and haven’t purchased anything but a bag of mini Heath bars. They didn’t last long. I need to find a new hiding place for them – perhaps the safe is a good place. ;)

There are many candy lists out there for those needing to stay gluten-free. I am going to list a few below:

Are you getting enough nutrients on the GF diet?

I reviewed Naked Nuggets – they are awesome chicken nuggets with no breading. So good!

  • Did I see "calzones" on your menu??? YUM! I haven't had those in years! Are you going to post the recipe or have you posted it in the past??? What dough do you use? I've been afraid to try it because I didn't know if gf dough would hold up for a calzone.

    I will have to check into the candy corn – I just bought some Brach’s Autumn Mix yesterday, and 10 pieces in I started to have reflux, which is one of my indicators of reaction to gluten. I need my fall fix but I am now concerned that perhaps manufacturing crossover contamination has happened.

    Your Naked Nuggets link is incorrect, it goes to the nutrition page.

  • Marisa – Thank you! It should work now.

    Lisa – Yes, I will. :)
