Butta Finga

Hmmm. Did I see Butterfinger on a gluten-free list?
I gotta investigate.  Bought 2 at the store just in case.
Lady at work is annoyed I'm thin and said, yeah, she (me)can't eat bread.
I'm like, yeah, but that's ok because now I can eat bacon, donuts, bagels (gluten-free), ice cream, potato chips/dip and steak--all things I avoided when I was...

Dinner N Dancing

Hmmm.
Going to El Torito tonight.  Haven't been there since going "against the grain" or "wheatless".  I like refried beans, rice, and chips and guacamole.  Will probably get tamales or tacos with corn tortillas.  
I'm thinking cross contamination will be the big scare factor here.  Only one way to find out.
The scariest part is...

One word: Enchiladas!  I had steak enchiladas and they were muy bien!  I had no problemas getting my dance on afterward, either!  I ordered normally but cautioned the waiter about being allergic to wheat and later he made a joke about how did I enjoy the flour tortillas. haha Whatever. It was cool.
I defrosted berry pancakes for breakfast today...

Signed up to bring an appetizer for a work luncheon.  Wanted to bring cheese and sausage, but the sausage was not looking like it was going to be allowable for me.  SO, I glanced over and saw some HUMMUS and realized I haven't had that in YEARS. So, I bought some bell peppers and there we go!
Sliced red, green, and yellow bell peppers with black...

The luncheon at work was easy.  I ate fruit, a tamale, spanish rice,-- and the peppers with hummus that I brought.  
Not bad.  The only thing that looked yummy that I couldn't have was the soup someone made and the brownies someone made.  Not for me! Because I'm...

Girls nite out dancing last night and the band was really cool.  Now that my hair is long (had short hair a la Charlize and Dixie Chicks in my 20s and decided to grow it last Xmas when I turned 30) it's hot on the dance floor!  I'm glad celiac hasn't inhibited my hair's ability to grow fast!
I had one drink, a Jack Daniel's with...

Got my order from celiac specialties.  Xantham gum, graham cracker crumbs (I want to make a pie), powdered donuts, pumpernickel bread (first time I ordered this), and Dr.Schar's crackers (first time).

The pumpernickel is really good. Not as strong of a flavor as I remember the real kind from my gluten full days, but pretty good straight out of the bag....

Got my plane ticket 4 the holidays.  I got lucky last year and it was in the 40 degree range in Chicago area last Xmas! Probably won't get so lucky this year.

There are LOTS of celiacs over there (as are there lots of Norske's and other Scandinavian peeps- I read...
