One of my to-dos this year is to recognize the terrific local businesses that we have around us. Friday night I went to dinner at Jan's on the Beach in White Rock. We had tasted some of their appetizers while we were at a charity event for the local firefighters and we thought we should give the restaurant a try. Were we glad we did! The food was outstanding. What was even better was that it was gluten-free! As many of you know, I have been diagnosed with celiac disease for over 20 years. I was able to have fish and chips, calamari, even deep-fried brie bites. Oh my goodness, I can`t eat there too often or my clothes won`t fit! The service was also excellent and I highly recommend them.
