At Hy Vee today, Shane the Grillmaster was making the most wonderful smelling sandwiches outside. I decided to see if maybe, maybe I could eat it. So I asked to see the bottle of seasoning, and was so bummed to see it listed wheat and barley. So I said never mind. And then he said he could make me a ribeye with a different seasoning that was gluten free. :) I hesitated, but I was starving, so said ok. And THEN he OFFERS to clean the grill and the tongs, just for me! How cool is that! I always hesitate to ask cuz I don't want to annoy anyone.

So turns out Shane the Grillmaster did a presentation on gluen free food at college, and learned all about Celiac Disease, he could not have been more accomodating.

And he charged me $1 less since I didn't want a bun.

And the ribeye was scrumptious!!! :)

Was going to ask if he was cute but who cares - if he cooks and understands gluten-free! :D

I find that HyVee has many employees who have some understanding of gluten-free. I think because they have tried to be a supplier of gluten-free food. The one I go to in Overland Park, KS has more gluten-free speciality stuff than the WF.

Very cool. :)
Sounds delish!!!!!

I am not familiar with Hy Vee (I live in NY state)

but if you meet ANY guy who can cook, LISTEN to you, fulfill your needs, and you ATE WELL and safely? well, honey, you just hit the mother lode. Who needs a bun if you have all that?

Congrats on having a stellar day!!! :D

Yes, he was cute. But he was also about 22 and I am chasing 40 and happily married so...
;)

But it made my day to not only be able to eat prepared food, but to have someone go the extra mile to make it safe for me, without even asking!

The Hy Vee here has a pretty decent gluten-free section, and the celiac support group is headed by the Hy Vee dietician, so they are pretty helpful. But usually the cooks in the deli there are clueless, and it is always torture walking through smelling all the delicious things I can't eat! Thanks to Shane, now I have somewhere to go all summer long!
