I loved the comments on this past post about gluten free group meals. It seems I’m not the only one that has an amazing family!
Yes, I do sometimes feel like a hassle... In the worst moments, it will sometimes make me stay home rather than risk being a bother or having to eat my bag of trail mix and explain gluten intolerance for the millionth time.
But then there are people like your family who take care of you anyway, and that means the world. My dad will usually show me what he's done before he serves the food ("See - here's your special cutting board, and I read this jar of spices..." etc.). It's amazing. And it means SOOOO much!
Supportive family is great! My in-laws made Thanksgiving all gluten free for me, and I worked with my mom and my grandma to make Christmas all gluten free. During Christmas dinner my aunt and uncle were surprised to find the meal was gluten free. They said they had thought I was starving having to be GF. :) They aren't worried about me anymore!
It's nice to have in-laws who understand. My husband's family is Latin American, so most of their food is corn or rice based, with few gluten products. This year my sister made a gluten free Christmas cake for dessert. My son ate so much at dinner that he didn't want the cake and the rest of us scarfed it down!
And Farty Girl thanks for the non-food related comment
Remember that really awesome Christmas present from my hubby?
Woo hoo! Well last night was the taste test and….
Beer lovers rejoice!
These are real beers!
The Raspberry was definitely my FAVORITE, although the Tread lightly was really good too. BUT when was the last time you had a flavored beer?! It reminded me a lot of an Abita Strawberry beer I tasted…3 years ago?!
The 3R Raspberry is smooth, clean but with a hint of fruitiness. Just the tiniest bit of fruit flavor with only a bit of sweetness. SUPER REFRESHING! Love it!
And at 22 oz.
there was more than enough to share! (Or not)
The Tread Lightly Ale is such a great beer…you’ll think it has gluten in it!
My first comment was “It tastes like a REAL beer!” As opposed to fake beer…I know, I know. But it has such an amazing flavor. I mean, I LOVE Redbridge. A lot. BUT it always ends up being a little sweet and having that sorghum tinge. Tread Lightly has neither. Crisp. Smooth. Beer-y. REFRESHING!!
Want New Planet Beer?
BUT….bring in the disappointed groans
and only sold in Colorado. FOR NOW. I’m completely confident that this beer will get a larger distribution if that’s where New Planet wants to take it. I understand the beauty of being small, so I support them. PLUS I totally intend to bribe Think Outside the Breadbox to send me more 3R Raspberry.
So that’s my review! And just in case I didn’t already make you jealous enough…I’m gonna rub salt in the wound. I enjoyed my beer with a GIANT slice of
Mellow Mushroom gluten free pizza
I’m sorry! I’m sorry! I love you; I promise. Come visit me and I’ll take you out for pizza and beer. Or PF Chang’s, your call!
