This is the first time that I am going camping since being dx with celiac disease. I was wondering if anyone has a recipe for funnel cake. We have always had this when camping and it will be very difficult to watch everyone else eat my favorite dessert and not be able to have any.

There's always In and Out.
I talked to a representative from there and for their hamburgers just order the protein burger (it's what they call it when not having the bun) they couldn't guarentee the sauce in case they happen to change it so just order it without the sauce and use thier Heinz ketchup.
They only thing they are allowed to fry in the fryer is the french fries so the fries are fine.

The food we got is gluten-free. I found it through the OC celiac group. Even the clerk there was knowledgable about it and was able to tell people which ones were gluten-free and which ones were not.

It's by Elizabeth Howards Curtain Call Theatre on El Camino Real at the El Camino Plaza. It's call the OC Kosher Market.

I'm a newly diagnosis celiac (4 weeks) and I found this board when my doctor said he suspected I had celiac disease after an endoscopy. (Of course since then the biopsy and blood test were positive) Since I had never heard of it I immediately turned to the internet and found this site.
After reading a lot of the messages and info I was really excited to have a place to talk to people and learn from people who have had a lot more experience then me.

In all the reading here I've done, I learned of a site www.safetoeat.net that had a list of items that are safe at different fast food places and I also learned about the Outback.

I have to tell you, today was the first day I was really feeling down (pretty depressed) since my diagnosis. It could have to do with the fact that I went for a family birthday gathering at a pizza place last night. This had already been set up before my family new about me having celiac disease and there was nothing I could eat except salad. I hate salads!

This morning my daughter kept after me to take her to the mall and so I finally agreed to do it and I thought 'I need to eat before we go' so I donít have to worry about getting hungry and then trying to find something there that I could eat.(more depressive thoughts) Then I remembered about the Outback. So we decided to go there for lunch before shopping. The best idea ever for depression!!

I told them when I got there that I had heard they had a gluten-free menu and they gave it to me. I nearly started crying! There were sooo many things on the menu that were listed as gluten-free and how to order it so your whole meal was gluten-free. Our food was wonderful!!! I have eaten there before and always did enjoy the food, but now they have a customer for life who will eat there often.

I saw the brownie on the menu but I was so full after lunch I didn't order it this time but decided I would come back later after shopping just for dessert.
Needless to say I was so happy that I found a place I could eat at I was no longer depressed and was able to go shopping with my daughter and we had a really great time together.
Even after shopping I still wasn't hungry so I will have to go back for dessert later and try the brownie. Something that I am really looking forward to.

Anyway the 2 points to this long winded message are:

1. Go to the Outback and treat yourself to a great gluten-free meal.
2. Thank you to everyone on this site for all you've done for me just by posting your great finds and experiences here.
