Three Things Thursday: GFAF Countdown

To say I'm psyched about this weekend's GFAF Expo is a dramatic understatement. Other than the fact that the event itself rocks, I get to spend a whole weekend with lovely folks who I don't get to see very often. Folks like Betsy, Mel, Mary Fran, Andrea and Jay - plus getting to meet a slew of new GF friends (like contest winners Allie, Abigail & Roseanne - stop by and say "hello!"). For little ol' sort-of-reclusive me, it's kinda the social event of the season.

I'll stop geeking out pretty soon, but here's three things I'm looking really forward to trying this weekend:

1. Pamela's Figgies & Jammies - Fig Newtons have always reminded me of my Nana, since she's the only person I know who always had them in her pantry. Many a summer day was spent chilling on her back porch, drinking iced tea by the gallon and noshing on Fig Newtons. Ever since I heard these were a real thing, I've been salivating. I'm trying to NOT turn back into a cookie monster, but I'd love to try them to see if they compare to the Fig Newtons of my past, gluteny life.

2. Kiki's pizza - Kiki's won me over last year with their spinach pocket, and this year, they are supposed to be sampling their new deep-dish style pizza. I don't even think I need to expand on that. Deep-dish pizza. Yes.

3. Udi's frozen dinners - So new they aren't even on the Web site yet, Udi's has started offering a slate of frozen dinners. This could be problematic, as I will be spending Saturday working the Udi's table with Betsy. I'm really hoping that it doesn't turn into a gluten-free re-creation of the I Love Lucy episode at the chocolate factory. But honestly, I think it helps sell your product when your own reps can't keep their hands off of it.

If you're going to be expo-ing this weekend, what are you most looking forward to?
