    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

So I went to a wedding this past weekend of one of my good friends. And what an amazing friend she is!! She asked me to come hang out with her while she was getting ready (having her makeup done, etc.) to keep her calm. While we were hanging out she told me that when they came to take the dinner orders just let the waiter know I was the one with celiac. She had already informed them what table I was at and that was all I had to do. It was so great not to stress. Everyone else picked their entree and as instructed I told them I was the gluten free one. And without any further explanation out came my grilled chicken with a delicious lemony sauce and vegetables.

I was also ecstatic at the cocktail hour when I stumbled upon the mashed potato bar! Yummy!!!!! Regular mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes served in martini glasses with your choice of toppings. I was in heaven!

Oh and she had also informed me that at the dessert table there was going to be all sorts of chocolate covered fruits... also delicious! They were on a seperate table from any pastries so I didn't have to worry about cc.

I already knew she was a good friend but I just thought nothing was more thoughtful than amongst all the stress and drama of wedding planning she made an effort to accomodate me.

Makes you remember for all the people that can be rude or insensitive there are those that go above and beyond.

That is so amazing and so wonderful! Amazing that amid the stress of planning her big day she remembered to accomodate you! THAT'S a great friend!

I just got a wedding invitation in the mail for one of my cousins weddings... instantly got a feeling of dread about the food issue... I know that this particular family will not make any special accomodations for me so I'm afraid I will have to decline, as I will have to travel for the wedding... I dunno... I'll have to give it some though...
