Yay! Happy For Supportive Friends.

I just had to share a positive story of supportive people, since it seems that many of us have to deal with people who aren't very helpful or supportive in our gluten-free diet.

 

I'm on vacation. At our prior place to stay, our friends were very supportive about avoiding glutening. They even made a separate jar of mayo for us and labeled it "gluten-free." 

 

At our current place to stay, I went to a potluck. My SIL's mother-in-law (so my sister-in-law's husband's mother) had made a dish of vegetarian oat burgers. She had gone out and bought some Bob's Red Mill certified gluten-free oats to make them with, and then she went so far as to make them FIRST, before making the regular ones with bread crumbs. At the potluck, she told me to go dish up some of my salad and set it aside before anyone had a chance to drop crouton crumbs in it.  :D

 

My SIL made me some vegetarian loaf with tofu and gluten free bread crumbs and she pulled out a portion for me before adding the topping, because as she said, "I'm not sure if the jelly in the topping had crumbs in the jar or not."

 

It's so great to have people around who do their best to understand and accommodate the celiac diet and don't make fun of me for taking precautions against CC.

 

Yay!  :wub:  :)

Sounds as if you've got some very supportive and understanding people in your life. Very cool!  :)

 

As my friend has said to me many times (about avoiding gluten and CC), "it's not rocket science. It's mostly common sense."

 

I am grateful that my friends took the time to read what I sent them and they have cooked for me on several occasions without a problem.

 

I have given them all a flexible cutting board for use at their homes when I come over. They prefer I hang with them in the kitchen while they prepare things so they do not make a mistake (and I don't mind because I love to cook anyway!) Works out just fine. 

 

Sadly, many people on here report unsupportive (and downright rude) people in their lives, so we are lucky indeed.

Another happy story: My husband was given a state-wide award and a banquet was the venue. He mentioned that I might not eat because I had to be gluten free for health reasons. At the banquet, there was a green tag in front of my place... so the waiters would know I was the one who got the gluten free food. I even had a special dessert... a bowl of mixed fresh berries with whipped cream which was much better than the tired cake everyone else had. I was very impressed that a large organization would be so sensitive to my needs.

    The world is so full of good people that we can just over-look the others.
