It’s been a week of celebrating.
Celebrating summer. Like this cake from Tracy over at Shutterbean — summer on a plate.
You’re going to want the recipe, I promise you will, so here it is. I converted it to gluten-free by simply substituting a cup of Cup4Cup flour mix. (no one, and I mean no one, will know the difference)
Celebrating sister time with lunch at Cafe Hollander.
Speaking of celebrating — why don’t you join us for the next GF Get Together event happening next week at Cafe Hollander? (see the invite here)
Celebrating family time. (which is why this post is semi-random and pieced together… I’m home in Minnesota with my fam, staying up until my eyes beg for surrender and taking advantage of every daylight hour to be outside, in the fresh air, with my best buddies)
And their little brothers. (my peanuts)
I FINALLY wore them out.
We’re a food family though, so although we’d rather be outside playing, we take time for good grub.
We celebrate the little things — like getting the table set for a lunch party, using grandma’s “special” wine glasses to sip soda out of, and dancing around in the kitchen. Just because.
And it doesn’t have to be anything gourmet. Kids are happy just getting to the table with you, having helped prepare the meal — they get excited about the little things. I’m telling ya. Celebrate it.
Celebrating with mamasita at Chevy’s in Sioux Falls, SD.
*note: although they have a gluten-free menu, there seemed to be some confusion on some of the GF menu items (the same thing happened in the twin cities) so be sure to double check everything before ordering.*
Celebrating South Dakota’s gluten-free friendliness with a stock up on beverages.
How funny is that sign? Not only does Hy-vee stock my favorite gluten-free beer, but they are encouraging you to celebrate too. (started this post yesterday, saw the sign today — confirmed the need for more celebrating in life)
So take note… grab your friends and family, some good food, and then celebrate.
We already are.
You should join us.
What are you celebrating this week?
