Hi all! I just have to tell everyone as I know this team would understand it!!
We have a Daytona 500 party every year. This year, one of the guys wife (Kris) was going to come and I have not met her yet. I asked my BF to make sure she doesn't have any food allergies/issues. Well, you know... those that have are considerate of others! He gave his friend the menu and said it sounded fine.
So.. the day arrives. My friend was supposed to bring GF garlic bread and salad. Her bread machine broke on her (augh) So she walks in w/ regular garlic bread explaining the issue and said she found GF hot dog buns for me so I can still have some bread.
Kris perks up and said 'did you say Gluten free?' and it went uphill from there! She was so excited. I asked what she was going to do w/ the lasagna and she said just pick out the noodles.
I told her she could eat the bean salsa, the corn chip scoops, dinner, bread (hot dog bun) AND cake as I made the Betty Crocker cake. She was thrilled!
I gave her a ton of website info and also told her about Spark People too.
Just thought I would share. Made me feel good.
She had brought cookies from a bakery and quickly told me they were not GF! I smiled and said I figured. I mentioned that I my BF told her husband what was for dinner and he didn't say anything. She said he never does.
I am so fortunate my BF and my friend are so considerate of my Gluten issues.
