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: Lydia and Michael talked about their gluten free wedding and how that worked well for them. Melisa asked questions and seemed interested in Dr. Hawthorne, the gastroenterologist. She also spoke about a holistic practice in Flagstaff.
Jeanette reported finding a gluten-free graham cracker crust (by Midel) that is quite good. She made a key lime pie with it using the key lime mousse that Barb told us about one time. It was good.
Jeanette also reported that she had discovered the Fry's Marketplace to beat all Fry's Marketplaces. It is HUGE and carries a very large selection of gluten-free products, almost as many as Mt. Hope in Cottonwood. Not only is it a very large grocery store, it also has furniture, sheets, towels, plastic storage products, and a garden section. So, its like a Fry's plus Target and Walmart. The store is located in Marana, near Tucson. The group thought the store sounded great but wish there was one like it in Flagstaff.
If you're looking for a really good gluten-free packaged soup mix, try Jack and the Bean soups. All you have to add is water. Jeanette made the Autumn Blend Lentil soup in her crock pot and it was great. The soups can be ordered online at: http://jackandthebeansoup.com/.
Next Meeting: The next meeting will be February 20.
