So, since it's Thursday, and since it's my birthday month, I'm using Three Things today to rave about some of my favorite things and some of the news they have in the pipelines.
1. Red Apple Lipstick is launching a holiday line of lipsticks, and they need help with naming them. The new collection goes on sale December 2. Also coming in December from RAL? Gluten-free mascara. To say I'm excited is an understatement. Hooray for gluten-free, paraben-free makeup!
2. 'Tis the season to start thinking about holiday meals. And holiday desserts. Mostly holiday desserts, because, let's face it, it's pretty hard to screw up mashed potatoes, but unless you're a whiz in the kitchen, gluten-free pie crust is a beast. Enter Sweet Ali's. Ali and her team saved my holiday season last year with their awesome array of GF treats. We're already compiling our order for Thanksgiving (I'm looking at you, cinnamon rolls and pumpkin pie), and if you're in the Chicago area, you should stop by the bakery or visit them at one of their many tastings.
3. Y'all know I love me some Glen Prairie, and it's a fantastic coincidence that the week before my birthday, they have unveiled their fall/winter menu. Braised shortribs? I'm there. Again, this is for Chicago peeps, but if you are local, please, please, please check this place out. We gotta support the awesome restaurants who are doing GF right - and deliciously so!
