2 Days Until Thanksgiving

20 Nov

As many of you know from previous years… Thanksgiving is a time when we stock up on fresh pastries, donuts, muffins, pies, cornbread, stuffing mix, croutons, banana & pumpkin bread, coffee cake, no-rye rye bread, turkeys, hams, bread, crackers and lots of other goodies. Our goal is to provide everyone with a tasty treat for the holidays.

It’s always nerve racking to order so much fresh goodies and I always get butterfies in my stomach as I cross my fingers and wait for everyone to show up. So far so good.

Beginning Tuesday 11/20 at around 11am:

We will be sampling Miglet’s Banana Bread & Pumpkin Bread

From Tuesday until Wednesday sampling will continue with

Earth Cafe Pumpkin Cheesecake

Fabes Pumpkin Sugar Free Vegan Pie

Sourdough Bread

Miglet’s Quiche


Renee’s Dairy Free & Soy Free Chocolate Chips

…. If there’s something you’d like to try that we have a plentiful supply off, we will try to sample it for you.

We are currently stocked up on cornbread, stuffing and pies, but the next 2 days will be crazy… so grab your favorites before they’re gone.

Though we are not a bakery ourselves… we offer the largest selection of dedicated gluten free baked goods in California!

Miglet’s Bakery:

After baking for years for her Mom with Celiac Disease, Katie opened the doors to Miglet’s Bakery in Danville, CA just over 2 years ago.

Other Deliveries that have recently arrived:

Mary’s Turkey’s – Limited Supply

$39.99 for 10-14 LB ( a little over $3 a pound)

The heritage turkey is based on the first breed of turkeys that existed in the United States.  They breed naturally, as well as run and fly!  These extra activities result in larger thigh meat, and slightly less breast meat than a typical turkey.  All of these traits result in a superior taste that takes less time to cook than a regular turkey!

Yes Turkey Brine and processing can result in a Turkey with gluten or other allergens added in unnecessarily. For more information on Thanksgiving Tips: check out our previous blog https://gfspecialty.wordpress.com/2012/11/16/gluten-free-thanksgiving-tips/

Applegate Hams – Limited Supply – 4 Varieties

$35.99 to $49.99 for 4 to 6 pound
