In case you have not heard, A Gluten-Free Holiday starts this Thursday! Right now you’re paniking thinking you messed up the calendar and it’s already Thanksgiving. Take a deep breath and don’t worry. It’s only the 2nd. But the holiday season is upon us. Now is the time to arm yourself with a plan. See yesterday’s post for my November menu and your chance to Win!
This holiday season Amy from Simply Sugar & Gluten Free came up with a great idea and gathered up 5 of us to join her in sharing with everyone, A Gluten-Free Holiday.
We want to help as many people as we can serve safe & delicious food at the holidays. Just to be clear, the WE also includes YOU!
If you weren’t there it just wouldn’t be a holiday celebration.
Here’s the scoop….
On Thursdays in November and December, a different gluten-free blogger will host a link-up event where you can share your best gluten-free holiday dishes. The linky will be open until the following Wednesday at 10:00 pm CST.
Every week we’ll have a give-away, too. You can link up or leave a comment to enter. Check out the list of prizes at the end of this post.
