Where: Shirley’s Home in King George, VA (Note: Please email Shirley for directions if you are local and plan to attend.)
What: We’ll start our meeting with our usual shared group meal. This month’s theme will feature everyone’s favorite—pizza! Plus, to properly commemorate St. Patrick’s Day, we’ll have a “co-theme” of green dishes. Green salads and veggies will complement our pizzas well. We’ll be sure to have pizzas that are not only gluten free (like this Flourless Pizza and Kate Chan’s “Chebe” Pizza), but we’ll also have some pizzas that are dairy free, and some that are grain free or both. Plus, there will be vegetarian options, too. In addition, the folks at Gluten-Free Matzo and Hail Merry have sent us some of their samples to enjoy. Expect my gluten-free, dairy-free Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream to make an appearance, too.
SO Lucky Gifts of Manassas, Virginia, will be giving our presentation. One of the founders, Carey Greene, and Heather Lichtenfels, Vice President of Marketing, will be joining us. SO Lucky Gifts is a purveyor of gourmet gluten-free food and gifts. They’re the folks you can call when you want a gift package of gluten-free foods (and more) delivered. From SO Lucky Gifts’ website: “We have personally tasted and tried every product we offer. In fact, the products here are our favorites – the best we’ve found – and those of us who don’t need to avoid gluten can’t tell anything is missing! We also understand that avoiding gluten is difficult, so we provide ingredient information from each package, as well as information from our manufacturers on their processes (when products have not yet been certified gluten free).” This post will be updated as additional information is available on Carey and Heather’s presentation to us. Until then, you can read more on and see some of SO Lucky Gifts here and here at my friend Wendy’s (Celiacs in the House) blog.
Hope you’ll be able to join us for our March meeting!
