Hot Date-Gluten Free Style (well mostly)

     With seven people in our house to care for, you can imagine that date nights are few and far between. So when we have a willing sitter, we jump on the chance to escape to "couple's land" if only for an hour.
My husband took me to dinner yesterday. It can be quite challenging to eat out when you are avoiding gluten. Lucky for us, we are not true celiac so it is not quite so critical that hidden gluten be rooted out. Yeah, I know, it would be better if we did, but sometimes it is just too much work.
We ate at a buffet and with salad, veggies, and fruit it was not as hard as I had thought to get full without compromising our game plan. It was pretty non-stressful.
I was sad that the local Italian place is out. I do love pasta!!! I guess when I am feeling the need for Italian, I will just have to get the hubby to cook me a romantic candlelight pasta dinner at home.That's amore`!


  1. This is so cute and so true. I look at it that way also. I am so glad that we don't have celiac's disease.We can get away with some gluten every now and then and it not kill us or make us deathly ill.

  2. Absolutely! And the occasional glutenous indulgence reminds me (painfully at times) just why we are on the gluten-free bandwagon.
