Orcas Island (Washington State)

03 June 2014 - 04:13 PM

Has anyone spent any time on Orcas Island off Washington state?  We are planning a trip out there this summer, and am trying to figure out what there are for options regarding grocery shopping and gluten-free-friendly restaurants.  
 
At a minimum, we will be getting a place with a fridge, but I am not sure how important it will be to have a stove as well.  
 
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated
Thanks!

King Arthur Brownie Mix - Yum!

I grabbed a box at the store yesterday so I could make something quick to bring to a BBQ.   I haven't had a lot of brownies since going gluten-free, but these were really good, and fudgy (not dry like some of the others).  I would definitely recommend them for times when you want some dessert, but don't have a lot of time (or energy) to spend making something from scratch.  


Glutened, And No One To Blame But Myself :)

i am generally very good about watching out for gluten, but every now and then i get side-tracked and can't seem to talk and focus on gluten at the same time.  

 

last week, i was on vacation with my boyfriend.  he had gone up to the bar to get drinks (beer for him, and hard cider for me).  when i joined him, he was in a discussion with the bartender trying to assess if the hard cider on tap would be safe for me.  i have been gluten-free for over 1.5 years now, and am getting better at wording questions that wait-staff can answer, so i asked if the tap was dedicated to cider.  it was.  I was so excited, i grabbed my cider and took a small sip - it was delicious!  as i was swallowing (and my boyfriend called me name), i realized the thing that made it taste so good was that it was a nice hoppy IPA, and not a cider at all.  OH NO!!  

 

fortunately, i only had an unhappy tummy for a day - it could have been so much worse.  

 

another lesson learned - no more draft cider for me if there is a chance i might get distracted :)
