I have to go to the kid's swim dinner party and have to bring my dinner. What should I bring for myself? It is super hot here. It will be at a senior center. They are just renting the room. Thanks, I'm stuck.

What will everyOne else be having? Sometimes I try to stick close to that. Although, one can never go wrong with a big salad and homemade dressing, especially if it's a hot day!

I always use that situation as an excuse to go to my favorite gluten free bakery and pick up a chicken salad arepa (which is a sandwich), a cupcake (sometimes 2) and usually a half dozen cakepops and some brownies or cookies. I'll bring the arepa and whatever dessert I want, usually a cupcake. Of course I'm not afraid to be different. B)

This is where you can really shine by making some of my favourites which are easy to make, take and keep nicely at room temp:

Honey Garlic Chicken Wings

Barbecued Ribs

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Marinated Feta Cheese with homemade gluten-free black peppercorn crackers

Sweet potato fries and an interesting dip such as blueberry "ketchup"

Potato skins

Roasted carrot hummus and intriguing vegetables

Chicken and dumplings

Pizza - great hot, room temp or cold

Quiche

Chewy chocolate chip cookies

Shortbread

Fruit tarts

Brownies

And, since you mentioned it's hot, why not a feta, toasted pine nut, basil and watermelon salad?

It is simple to make something naturally gluten free and the dessert items are also very easy.

In a situation like that, I generally bring leftovers, 'cause I don't want to cook. ;)

I usually bring a salad full of tons of veggies and grilled chicken.

I usually bring some gluten-free turkey from the deli, some cheese and cracker and some snacks like fruit, applesauce, cookies, yogurt (if I brought an ice pack). It's not that far off from what I brought for lunch back in high school but it's tasty, dependable, easy, not fussy and in a pinch you can pick it up at the grocery store on the way. I went to the movies with friends a couple weeks ago and on the way found myself starving. I stopped at the local market that has all boars head deli so I know it's gluten-free got some turkey and cheddar grabbed a box of gluten-free crackers and I was all set. I won't lie, I ate it during the previews : ) Yay! Hope this helps and good luck!

Depending on the situation I either stick close to whatever everyone else is having or make that my excuse to stop for take-out gluten-free pizza (we have a great place where the owner if celiac! yum).

If it's too hot to cook and you don't have refrigeration where you'll be, then the easiest thing is to bring individually wrapped things, like cups of tuna and applesauce, a bag of crackers, a little hummus, carrots, etc. Even refrigerated things like yogurt, cheese sticks, and hard boiled eggs will keep for a little while at room temp. Roll up lunchmeat and cheese slices around pickle or cucumber spears. Treat yourself to some Pirate Booty or a Snickers bar to make up for having to eat differently from the rest. They will want what you have!
