We're invited to my boyfriend's father's house and they don't go out of their way to accommodate my son. <_< I understand that no one is obligated to go out of their way, but I don't want him to have to feel different around family. That's a whole new topic... They usually serve traditional barbecue food like hot dogs and hamburgers.

I am going to bring a spinach dip & serve with tortilla chips? Humm...what should I serve it with?


I am going to offer to bring desert. I'm going to make a chocolate trifle using gluten free brownies, chocolate mouse and cool whip.

Maybe I'll also make some kind of salad. There was a great looking chicken and wild rice salad recipe on glutenfreeda.com. And I'll make sure that I bring chips that my son can eat.

***I also learned a new way that my son can get glutened at barbecues: When people with gluten on their hands reach into the chip bowl and then you get chips out of the same bowl. Next time I will grab a large hand full of chips and set them aside before the party gets started. It may look rude, but my son's health is worth it! :)


Son 6 yrs old, Positive blood work, Outstanding dietary response, no biopsy.

Household mostly gluten free since 3/07

Me: HLA-DQ 02 & 0302 (DQ 08), which I ran & analyzed myself!Currently gluten lite, negative tTG, asymptomatic
