Adopt a Blogger!

I decided to participate in Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger over at the Book of Yum this time around. I enjoyed it. I think I'll do it again. Below you can see what fun I had.

I love heading over to Linda's blog, The Gluten Free Homemaker regularly. Wednesday's she puts together a great time with What's for Dinner Wednesdays, organizing a blog carnival around gluten free dinner ideas. If you haven't yet, you should participate.

It was one of these Wednesday's that I saw a recipe of hers I just had to try. Beef Barbecue Sandwich. What made this particular sandwich so appealing was the foccacia bread that served as a transport for the shredded meat and saucy goodness in the middle. I'd never managed to have foccacia before going gluten free so I can't tell you if it was as good as its gluten-y cousin but it tasted great and was crazily easy to make. my husband told me I should hang on to the recipe a great indicator that even he enjoyed the bread.

I didn't use a pan like Linda did, I just spread the batter out on my pizza stone (gluten free dedicated) and it worked like magic. I had picked up some of the sauce she mentioned, Bull's Eye BBQ Sauce which doesn't use any corn syrup and I boiled up some chicken to shred. I did learn a little trick for shredding meat over at Fire and Salt. Brian uses his kitchen aid mixer and a paddle on low speed, worked like a charm. I'll never use forks again.

Thank you Linda for sharing this wonderful idea with the rest of the blogging community. Please do continue to do so.

Great Pictures! I saw this on Linda's site a while back and thought it looked good. After seeing it again here, I need to make this.

Thanks for adopting me! It's my first time being adopted and I'm very excited. :) I'm so glad the recipe turned out for you and that you enjoyed it.

How great is that! I can't wait to try the foccacia bread. I usually make a pulled pork recipe, but might have to try the beef bbq instead. Yum.

I don't eat meat, but the bread looks wonderful!

Wow, that looks awesome! What a delicious job you did, food, pictures, everything! :) Ever seen Strictly Ballroom (it's terribly cheesy and off subject)! Anyhow I'm going to try this recipe!
