Giving Thanks, Gluten-Free Style
Many of my American friends are nursing a turkey hangover today. And I, having celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving in early October, am reflecting…
I had intended to post about my first gluten-free holiday I’ve had to survive but quite frankly I was surviving it so didn’t quite get to the computer. I was able to recreate a GF pumpkin pie, the only kind of pie I like, thanks to The Baking Beauties. If you don’t know Jeanine, you really must stop by her site. Not only is she a fellow Canuck, she’s actually in my home province – don’t you just like her already? Seriously though, any recipe I’m wondering about how to figure out in this new wheat-less reality, she has done. And for that I am very thankful.
I meant to have a post ready for American Thanksgiving but I was too busy trying to figure out how to not make my 5 year old cry about our current inability to produce gingerbread boys we can eat. I will figure that out eventually… because I have to.
This has been a wild ride… becoming a high maintenance eater… And I have said many a time over the last several months, HOW did people do this before Google?
As difficult a transition this may be, it’s been made a zillion times easier by all the fantastic bloggers in the world. So here is my Thanksgiving post.
I give thanks to:
All of these women helped me immensely in those first very daunting weeks. As I got to ‘know’ them more, I started to understand that whatever I might think of, that I needed to relearn, adapt, or substitute, they had all gone before me and would have words of wisdom.
I’ve discovered so many more incredible foodies out there as you can see in my side bar. And I know there are many many I have yet to ‘meet’.
I am so grateful to all of you for your perseverance and your generosity. It’s a tremendous gift you give to the world and I thank you.
