Merry Christmas! From my family to yours.
I can’t believe that Christmas is this weekend. How did time go by so fast?
This year will be the first year that our little family is totally alone for Christmas, I’ve come down with tonsillitis, the kids are fighting off their own illnesses and we’re between houses, staying at a friend’s place while they’re gone for the holidays. But, I’ve got so much to be thankful for that I can’t complain too much about life’s little inconveniences. Just look at those cutie pies I get to hang out and snuggle with. What more could I want?
We’re going to keep things very simple this year and just enjoy being together. We’ll probably watch oodles of Christmas movies, take a walk uptown to enjoy the Christmas lights and drink lot’s of hot beverages to sooth our sore throats. It should be a good, low-key Christmas.
I think everyone must have a person or two in their lives who are currently eating gluten-free. For those of us that don’t eat gluten-free, it can be a bit scary hosting a gluten-free guest. Not only do we want the food to taste great, but we need to learn how to cook in unfamiliar territory. It can be easy to get overwhelmed when you start studying up on the subject. That’s why, for this weeks post on Simple Bites I decided to share some quick tips with you for easy gluten-free entertaining.
From the post:
“Although most of the people I know who eat gluten-free truly don’t mind if there are certain items on the table that they can’t eat, it’s nice to make the extra effort and make all of the food to be enjoyed by everyone. It’s just more fun if everyone can participate in every part of the meal – that way there are no temptations and nobody feels left out.
It doesn’t have to be stressful to cook gluten-free. With a few quick tips you can have a great meal on the table in no time.”
