The September meeting is Tuesday, Sept 21st from 7 - 8:30, we’ll be enjoying “Fair Food”, anything that the County/State Fair would offer but we no longer can eat - Faith promised to make her famous cream puffs, there will be corn dogs, we’re hoping for funnel cakes, anyone want to try & make deep fried veggies?? Or cheese curds?, we’re hoping to see strawberry shortcake, corn on the cob, just think of something to bringJ
There will be a representative from “Tastefully Simple” who will show some gluten free items that they carry - feel free to ask questions - such as : is there a chance of cross contamination? Prices?, how to purchase? etc. She will have about 15-20 mins after we eat to present her items.
Due to the serious health problems of the teacher from South High School, our Oct meeting with the culinary students making us food will have to be canceled at this time. The teacher needs all of our support at this time - please keep her in your thoughts.
We will have our regular meeting at St Mark’s instead.
The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center is having it’s annual free blood screening & ask the experts panel on Oct 9, 2010 from 8:30 to 12 noon. Registration is required, call 773-702-7593 or check out their website www.CeliacDisease.net.
There is a new Gluten Free Store at 20101 Bluemound Road in Brookfield, check out their website http://aglutenfreefrenzy.com , phone 262-785-7020. I believe they carry Shabtai products which are very good, check www.shabtai.com.
There will be a Gluten Free Expo 2010 in Minocqua - for more information email Julianne Karow (author of Celiac Resource Guide) at WisconsinGFexpo@aol.com.
If you still have some of the books that are loaned out, please return them at the Sept meeting or contact me- there are 2 books that I have been missing for quite some time now: The Gluten -Free Bible by Jax Lowell & Living Gluten -Free for Dummies by Danna Korn - please check to see if you have them, the books are too expensive for me to loan out but not have them returned.
For those of you who have not tried Udi’s bread -what are you waiting for?? It’s possibly the best bread ever and their bagels are outstanding, the pizza crust is very nice too. Now if only they could make GF hard rolls...
Natalie S has agreed to be in charge of ordering Celiac Awareness bracelets, if interested please let her know at the meeting or notify me so I can pass the info on to her. The cost is minimal & a nice way to spread awareness to the community. What else can we do?? If you have any ideas, please share them with the group at a meeting.
