So, this is my first holiday season since being gluten-free. I just went to a neighborhood brunch, which we do every year. It's one of these very casual things so I wasn't concerned about eating or not. It's only three blocks from my house and I wasn't planning to stay long because I need to cook my turkey, etc. So I had some fruit, and was eying the egg/casserole things. I asked the host about her egg dish -- I said "is there any wheat in this?" She replied "no, no wheat, just eggs, cheese, and bread." um... :blink: :lol: :rolleyes:

Some people seem believe that if the bread isn't called "wheat bread," then it doesn't actually have bread. Like white and oatmeal breads. Kind of baffling.

I had a convo while in GA during my last visit with my Dad's sister (who is supposedly a nurse?) that went like this:

Me: I can't have ANY wheat

Her: So you can have white bread?

Me: No, white bread is just bleached wheat

Her: So you can have boxed mac and cheese?

Me: No, noodles are made from wheat

Her: But you can still have Betty Crocker boxed mixes right?!?

Me: *head palm* No


Needless to say I didn't let her cook for me ever....

sounds alot like my thanksgiving with grandma. She saved some halloween candy for the kids and she wanted to give some to my 13 month old who is gluten intolerant. "Can she have a kit kat bar?"
Me "no, those have wheat in them"

Her "no, it has cookie in it not bread.."

Me "the cookie has wheat flour in it"

Her, "oh, can she have a twix bar, those are different"

Me, "no those have cookie too"

Her, "oh, well she can just lick the chocolate off then"

Me, "no that would still cause problems"

Her, "why?"

I was just diagnosed on November 2nd. At the big family Thanksgiving dinner I was told I was being "too picky". Pretty sure I got some gluten at dinner. It was either from the shortening they used in the green beans (I had no idea some people put shortening in green beans) or the crumbs left by an uncle who used the same utensil for all of the food. :( He was unfortunately getting his food before I had a chance to set out serving spoons. Lesson learned next time I'll bring my own food and wait to set it out until after that uncle gets his plate.

If you over-salt a dish while you are cooking, that's too bad. Please recite with me the real woman's motto: 'I made it, you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes!'-unknown

Reminds me of a story I overhead once on the subway. It went something like this:

So I'm trying to eat healthier these days. You know, whole wheat bread, and whole wheat rice. And there's this woman at work that is allergic to wheat. So she can't have any whole wheat bread. Only white bread.

Or the cafe I went to in England.
- Do you have anything gluten-free?
- Yes, we have soda bread!


ummmm, right, and thats made with soda flour?

A Song of Thanksgiving It's Over

Oh beautiful for spacious pies
and amber fields of... bread
for purple mountain majesties
Above the loaves, she said

America, America,
We shed ingredients on thee
And crown thy food with sorghumdough
From casserole to casserole !

Oh beautiful for what to eat
Whose frantic impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for gluten free
Across the wilderness

America, America
God mend thy ev'ry flaw
Confirm thy soul in self control
And pass the cabbage slaw

O beautiful for party dream
That sees beyond this year's
Thine alabaster frostings gleam
Undimmed by human tears.

America! America!
We shed ingredients on thee,
And crown thy good with safe substitutes
From sea to shining sea.

My first gluten-free Thanksgiving too and I was ready -- with my own serving spoon, and digging into the part of the plates that had not been touched. Then I stepped away from the table and when I came back, a relative next to me was so nice to serve my plate with all of the dishes passing by. Ug! Lesson learned - guard your plate!

Really - people are so well meaning. I've been there where I didn't get it.

But, so glad that event is over! Food-wise.

Excellent! Thank you!

I live in a state with wheat stalks on my liscense plate! We all had a good laugh about that last night. :)
