Flagstaff Celiac Support Group
Meetings: The third Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. Meetings are usually held at the Flagstaff Medical Center (east campus) cafeteria on the first floor of the main hospital. Go in the entrance next to the cafeteria and look for the group in the seating area to the left.
Meeting Recap: Jeanette shared an article from the Flagstaff Business News about a restaurant called Lola's Hot Kitchen at 1850 N. Fort Valley Road. The menu is described as "eclectic" and includes vegan and vegetarian options. In addition, the owners say that about 75 percent of the menu can be prepared gluten-free. Jeanette said she hasn't tried it yet but would like to do so soon.
Brenda said she had lunch at The McMillan Bar and Kitchen on the corner of Route 66 and Leroux. She said about 90 percent of the menu can be gluten-free or vegetarian. The cost for lunch was between $7 and $10 and the staff was very accommodating. She also said the interior of the restaurant is very beautiful, nicely renovated.
Barbara said she had finally been successful in her quest to find a product to replace the Gluten Free Pantry French Bread mix that has been discontinued. She was very surprised to find that Betty Crocker has a Rice Blend Mix that contains the same ingredients as the old Gluten Free Pantry mix. She used the mix to make bread adding yeast (which is not included in the mix), vinegar, three eggs, and three tablespoons of honey. It turned out just like the Gluten Free Pantry French Bread mix. Now she can make full-size sandwich bread for Tom.
Next Meeting: The next meeting will be September 17.
