We’ve been quiet because the first few weeks…and last two really, who am I kidding…of December are crazy! We attend a lot of shows and boutiques and spend a lot of time heads down over vast pots of sweets and jams.
So where are we this weekend? The SLC Dickens Festival! This is happening at the South Town Expo Center in Sandy, Utah, December 11 – that’s tomorrow – through December 14th. They do charge for this event, but there are a bunch of coupons in various papers and online to get half off and (drumroll please) from 10-11 tomorrow morning admission is absolutely free. So come on by and visit us. We’ll be in booth 31, not so far into the maze of shops.
There will be live reindeer at the event, roasted chestnuts, vendors, plays, carolers, dancers and a very jolly special guest in the form of Father Christmas himself. It’s a great event and we look forward to seeing you there. Come spend the day in Merry Olde London, you’ll be glad you did.
Wow it was a busy weekend. We attended the SLC Gluten Free Expo this last Saturday and it was great to see so many of you there! We really enjoy going to the shows where we can talk to folks face to face, particularly when we’re helping to provide solutions to special diet needs. Food is so important and it’s just no fun when you feel like you can’t eat anything you really enjoy!
So thank you to everyone who came out and we hope to see you again next year.
In celebration of the Gluten Free fair we’ll share the recipe for our favorite cream soup mix here, and we’re have a special free shipping code which is good through the end of November. It’s a good time to get your gluten free products, and start stocking up for Christmas. So to use this you trundle over to the Cornaby’s Shopping Cart. Select your products and at the end it’ll have a box for coupons: ShipMeGlutenFree will give you free shipping on any order over $50.00. How cool is that?
Anyway…here’s the recipe for an easy cream sauce base that can be used in recipes or eaten all by itself!

⅔ c. instant non-fat dry milk
2 t. chicken base or chicken bouillon
¼ c. Thick Gel or ⅓ – ½ c. Ultra Gel

½ t. garlic powder
½ t. salt
Combine all ingredients in a resealable sandwich bag. Seal, label, date and store in tightly covered container. Shelf stable for up to one month, refrigerator stable for up to six months.
