At the August meeting Brenda announced that her daughter wants to open a gluten-free restaurant in Flagstaff. The group agreed to allow her to use the group to test her recipes. Brenda then made a list of the things to which everyone is allergic.
Barb brought home-made chocolate chip cookies made with Pamela's Artisan Flour, following the directions on the package.
Barb said that Trader Joe's white bread is very good. She found it with the rest of the bread, not in the refrigerated or frozen section. Tom said it was chewy and tasted like sourdough. His one complaint was that the loaf is small, not really sandwich size.
Jeanette said she had made a tastey gluten-free seafood and vegetables pasta salad. She used Meyer Lemon olive oil and lemon Balsamic vinegar to make a light vinegarette dressing.
The group discussed changing the frequency of meetings due to low turnout. The next meetings will be in September, November, January. March, and May. The meetings in November and May most likely will be dinner meetings.
