nclusion Is Sweet (DBA Shelby’s Sweets) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization comprised of 10
individuals with disabilities, and about 15 of their typical peers, that offers coffee cake, Keto muffins, and other delicious pastries. Currently, Shelby’s Sweets operates from Ethos Coffee Café, located inside of CityChurch on Bandera Road, with future plans to open a bakery that offers vocational training and employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities in the San Antonio area.
All products are picked by Shelby, who has fetal alcohol syndrome and learning disabilities. (She is adopted.) She is also fully involved in making all of the products, creating invoices, and choosing our partner initiatives. Shelby has said that being involved with Shelby’s Sweets has increased her self-esteem and makes her feel like she is “capable of anything.”
For big orders, the company hosts “baking parties” where treats are made and friendships between people, with and without a disability, are created. The company held their first ever Career Camp in the summer of 2019, where 28 campers with disabilities and 30 volunteers learned vocational skills and fostered interabled friendships.
October marks the official start of their Parents’Day Out program. The first event will be held at the Estela Avery Education Center at Confluence Park (generously donated by the San Antonio River Foundation). This free event is on October 26 from 10am- 2pm. Pre-registration is required. Activities will include Halloween-themed vocational training activities, an adaptive Tae Kwon Do lesson, cupcake decorating, and crafts with Artful Start! To register or sign-up as a volunteer, visit the company website at shelbyssweets.org.

Dinner Table- Continued from page 17 the heat to 350 F. Baste the turkey with 1⁄2 cup of the broth. Cover only the breast area with a sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Scatter the remaining shallots and garlic cloves in the pan around the turkey.
5. Continue to roast the turkey for about 11⁄2 hours, basting with 1⁄2 cup of broth every 30 minutes. Remove the foil from the turkey breast. Continue to roast the turkey, basting with pan juices every 20 minutes, about 1 hour longer, until it’s golden brown and a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh registers 165 F. Transfer the turkey to a platter and brush with 1 tablespoon of the herb butter. Tent it loosely with foil and let it rest for 20 minutes before carving.
6. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the shallots and garlic from the roasting pan to a plate. Transfer the pan juices to a medium bowl, then skim off and discard the fat. Set the pan
October 17 from 10:30am-10pm. Mention that you’re dining for Inclusion is Sweet, and they will receive a percentage of the proceeds from your order!

over two burners on medium-high heat. Deglaze the pan with the wine and 1 cup of chicken broth, scraping up any browned bits. Bring the sauce to a boil, reduce the heat to medium, and cook until it’s reduced by half, about 4 minutes. Pour the sauce into a large measuring glass. Add the degreased pan juices, and broth, if necessary, to equal 3 cups of liquid.
7. Blend the flour into the remaining herb butter until combined. Pour the broth mixture into a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Gradually whisk in the herb-butter mixture. Add any accumulated juices from the turkey platter and boil until the gravy thickens enough to coat a spoon, whisking occasionally, about 6 minutes. Add the remaining shallots and garlic to the gravy and simmer for 1 minute. Taste and adjust the seasonings, if necessary. Serve the turkey.
