Wassail Recipe and More

Our Gluten-Free Progressive Dinner Party (GFDP) happily continues on! Soon, folks will be coming through the door to see what I’m serving today. It’s a hot soothing wassail—recipe and photos courtesy of Stephanie O’Dea at A Year of Slow Cooking. Wassail is just right for this cold, damp day, that even has a promise of sleet and snow later. Head over to my Out and About page for the recipe and the giveaway of Stephanie’s cookbook that goes with it! UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for entering! The complete listing of the GFDP warm and wonderful submissions is there as well. Click here or on the Out and About tab above (giveaways, reviews, and such will always be on my Out and About page).

Even though I tried to include “everything but the kitchen sink” in Monday’s post, I still forgot to mention something—a big something. I am hosting The Gluten-Free Lifestyle Carnival for February. Always radiant and positive, Kim Hopkins, The Food Allergy Coach, originated this blog carnival last August. It’s fairly all encompassing really. In Kim’s words, the carnival is a roundup of “tips, recipes, health information, and support for people adjusting to life with celiac disease, gluten intolerance, or gluten sensitivity.” Now I know that all of you who blog gluten free can link up a post that fits that definition. So, please join in! You can submit your entry via this link. Submissions should be in by Thursday, January 28. Past roundups and future hosts are identified here. (Just click on the applicable tabs once you are on the site.)   Don’t forget to check out Kim’s blog, The Food Allergy Coach. She’s looking at life from a different perspective these days and I’m so happy for her!

Don’t forget to visit my Out and About page to enter the giveaway. After you enter and your steaming, delicious wassail is ready, grab a mug and check out all the entries for the GFDP!

Not just gf, but gfe!

    I love that you are sharing recipes from other gluten-free bloggers!! It’s so much fun to share each others creations. And a give-away!! I would love to have her book. :)

      Hi Amy–Thanks! :-) It’s fun to get the word out about others’ great recipes and, of course, their cookbooks—just so much fun. :-) When yours is published, we’ll do a giveaway for sure!

    I’ve never even heard of Wassail. It looks and sounds pretty tasty. I may have to give it a try. Thanks.

      Hi Brian–There’s even a song, Here We Come A Wassailing. You might have heard the Americanized version, but you can read more about the original here. It revolves around the beloved drink. Very tasty indeed! Hope you try it, and click on over to the Out And About page if you want to enter the giveaway for Stephanie’s great cookbook. Might come in handy for when you are pulling fireman duty. ;-)

    I love her blog. I read it often. Her book is on my list to get for my support group.

      Hi April–Everyone loves Steph’s blog … she’s irresistible! It would be a great book to add to your support group’s library. :-)

    Wow Shirley you have been keeping yourself so busy! You have so many good things going on for yourself and your website is always so full of good information, I am sure you are helping so many people and all your hard work is paying off. Happy New Year Shirley!

    • Shirley on January 26th, 2010 12:13 am

      Hi Robin–So good to see you! :-) Yes, I have had a full dance card, so to speak. ;-) Thank you so much for those nice words. It does energize me to know that folks are finding my blog and its gfe approach helpful.

      But, I do need to make some time to check out what you’ve been up to lately. You always surprise and amaze me. :-) Thanks for the New Year wishes! Right back at you, dear. ;-)

    I thought I commented about this, but now I’m confused. I know I talked about it somewhere. Maybe it was Facebook. Hmmmm? Now I’m wondering about myself (which is dangerous). Anyway, the only reason I came by is to say I finally looked at your eblogger profile and wow, you’re quite the study in contrasts! Love it. Robert Palmer and Atlas Shrugged! Had to stop by and say, I agree.

      Hey Melissa–It’s not you … it’s just the new Out and About page factor—where I do reviews, giveaways, etc. That’s where you commented! You came here to this post on the main page and then clicked on the link that took you to the giveaway post on the Out and About page. :-) It’s a bit confusing until you get used to it, but far better than me having to keep up with two separate blogs. ;-) Anyway, you’re not dangerous after all … well, not for that reason anyway. LOL

      Oh, yeah, I have very diverse interests. Of course, that profile is probably not a complete picture. You know how your mind goes blank when you try to fill out those things! I will always miss my Robert Palmer. A few friends grieved his loss with me. Wish I could get everyone to her all this songs, not just the few that made the Top 10. His others are so much better. And, Atlas Shrugged is on audiobook now! Must get it soon. I’ve read the book at least 6 times over the years. Fascinating. Something else we have in common it seems!
