Thanksgiving 2012

28 Nov

I hope everyone had a great holiday full of family, friends and GF food! This year, I was able to spend Thanksgiving with my family in New Jersey. To start our meal, we munched on some shishito peppers. There was gluten-free cornbread and cheddar biscuits on the table as well.

One of the best things about being home for Thanksgiving is that my mom labels everything to ensure we know which items are gluten-free or vegetarian for those who have dietary needs. Each dish also had its own serving spoon as to avoid cross contamination.

There was really tasty gluten-free stuffing. My mom used Udi’s bread to make it.

The stuffing turned out great. I also was a huge fan of the brussel sprouts that we had. They were really simple, but really delicious.

The whole meal was a success.

Miraculously, I had enough room for some dessert which was a good thing. We had GF apple and pumpkin pie!

I had a lot to be thankful for this year…. including YOU! So thank you, for reading glutenfreeinsb, and for coming out to the Gluten-Free Santa Barbara meetups so that we may continue to grow this gluten-free community!


Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Option

23 Oct

I just got the following message from Marsha, the manager of Adama:


I am the manager of a vegan restaurant in Santa Barbara. I want to let you know that we have a completely gluten-free bakery as well as a number of gluten-free entrees on our menu. As well, we will be doing a vegan, gluten-free Thanksgiving meal. How can I pass this information on to your gluten-free community.

Thank you,


Happy sans-turkey day!

Gluten-Free Thanksgiving

26 Nov

I had to work on actual Thanksgiving, but I really wanted the traditional turkey meal. When I got home on Friday, my mom had made me GF gravy and cornbread along with the traditional turkey,  green beans, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce. It was all very tasty. Thanks mom.

The past few months have been pretty crazy, so it is nice to have a day set aside to remind you what is important in life. This year, I am especially grateful for my family who have made me feel loved from up to 5,500 miles away. I am also incredibly grateful that I have moved back to a town that has embraced the gluten-free lifestyle. Lastly, I am thankful for the people that read glutenfreeinsb. I never imagined people other than my friends and family would read this blog, so I have been blown away by the support. Have a Happy Gluten-Free Thanksgiving with those that you are thankful for.
