This is just a mini update to let y’all know what we’re up to here at Eatsgeeks. I’ve been doing some product reviews and job hunting! The temp job is over and so since I had let my job hunting slack during that time when I was working, it took that much longer for anything to kick in. But I do have a new job I start Monday and while it is also a temp position of sorts, it is a Temp to Hire! So unless something goes royally wrong, it’ll be permanent in a few months. In addition, lots of still trying to get the house together and Aaron is working out and getting in shape for whatever the future may hold.
But while the next few days may bring some product reviews for you to enjoy and hopefully figure out if you want to try, there will be some recipes incoming. After all, I’ve got to get ready for the GFAF Expo in Dallas!!!
Yes, I’m going back and not just as a volunteer this time. I’m going to be blogging the experience while I’m there as well, though I might see if Jen needs some help if there’s not something I’m dying to do. I like helping! But then again, there’s a lot to want to do. So what’s so great about this expo?
But I won’t. Well, yes I will. But it’s not vital you read it to know what’s what. Because that info is old. It is however, a great example of the amazing things I got to see and learn about at last year’s expo.
This year is lining up to be even more awesome. One it’s right before Halloween on October 26-27 so the freebies and samples should be AMAZING! (Just letting vendors/lecturers know our expectations are high right before a major food holiday! *grin* ). Not only that, but a lot of the lecturers are nutritionists and can tell us what we’re doing wrong and how to fix it. I know I don’t eat as healthy as I should!
Then of course, you have the vendor hall. OMG! I came away stacked with snacks and even full blown products like a HUGE bag of Plentils, which I still can’t find anywhere from the Enjoy Life! people, and San-J gave away whole bottles of their sauces on Sunday. But I got to try different mixes and I even got to get a hold of some expandex finally from the people at AllergyFree Foods (They get out of stock a lot sadly. Their chicken strips were yummy!) And that was just the tip of the iceberg. They gave you a bag to use to hold things you purchased or got as trials or what have you and you used it, let me tell you!
But even that wasn’t all. The lecturers themselves were amazing. Having stories you could relate to and showing you how they did it and where they were coming from. Honestly, I think that the Gluten and Allergern Free Expo was the first time that I truly realized I wasn’t alone anymore.
So come found out that you’re not alone either and found out what you didn’t even know you didn’t know!
