This was a retirement party for my husband's boss. About 25 or so people. It wasn't a sit-down dinner, just one where you fill your plate then go find a place to sit among several rooms and seating areas. So I didn't bother to tell the hostess anything about gluten, figuring that there is always salad. Or something. Anyway, I didn't want to be a problem for her since this isn't someone I know well, although we have been to her house before.

Well...last year we did go to the house of another colleague, who had a smaller gathering. My dh did mention to that woman about celiac and gluten and she did a fabulous job cooking gluten free. So it turns out that that woman from last year talked to last night's hostess and almost everything was gluten free! :) :)

There was a stuffed shell thing that obviously wasn't, but she actually made a small pan of gluten free pasta baked with cheese, etc. Then there was rice, chicken peanut stew, a seafood gumbo type of thing, two salads, and even fruit and ice cream for desert (and she told me she checked the label on the ice cream although as she said "why the heck do they need wheat in ice cream?" lol...)

And, she said "really it isn't difficult to cook gluten free. Turns out that most food *is* gluten free." lol.. (that's what I always tell people when they start in on "what CAN you eat?") -- Anyway, my dh works with some nice people. :)
