Hi! I'm near Lakeside Mall--Clinton Township. Warren's just a jog down Schoenner from here :)

Mommida--do you ever go to Pine Knob Golf Course?

I don't have the patience for golf. I'm sure I would be like a Happy Gilmore if I went out on a course. ;)

I still drive into the Warren area for doctor appointments. I used to live right by Lakeside Mall. I didn't even have to take a main road to get there. I just drove through the subdivision and entered the parking lot next to McDonald's.

Hee--me neither for golf (only I'd be more like a Bill Murray).

I asked because of a past connection I have there--I did their PR when they re-opened the mansion to the public in 2006.

I know exactly where you lived--it's right up the road from me. This area has changed so drastically you might not recognise it of you've been away for long.

Do you remember "The Silo" on Hayes?

I loved the silo! I remember looking up and spinning, just to see if I could walk straight after.

I used to live on Saal rd. Remember that cow that would get loose and cause a commontion?

I drive out there for my kids Pediatrician's office. One office is on Hayes in Clinton Twp., the other office is on Hoover in Warren.

OK, If I ever have to go golfing ~ I'll only go if you come with me! :lol:

Was your peds. office on the east side of Hayes, s. of Canal, by the car wash? My SIL was a medical assistant there until a few months ago.

Our first apartment after we got married was at Ashgrove, directly across the street from the old SILO.

OK, you're on for 18 holes, but get ready to laugh. I am an eejit of the highest order. I'll probably flip the cart.

When I worked for them we spent a July 4th there on the lake off the course and watched the fireworks the owner put on. The Pat Benetar concert was going on at DTE (the back of the stage pavilion backs up to the golf course), so we got a free show and they got free fireworks. The owner even got me backstage passes to the Tom Petty/Stevie Nicks concert a few years ago. It was great fun.

PM me--let's chat.

Hopefully the anemia will resolve soon, and there will be no pica.

Interesting that you mention chocolate!!?

Have you ever seen the movie "Like water for Chocolate"? I think the sister character had Celiac. The end of the movie shows the main character eating matches. It's pretty slow, but I did laugh my tush off about the knitting for sexual frustration and the scene of this long knit piece trailing behind a moving car.

I don't travel too far out of my area. The furthest I go is to Mejiers on 16 and Van Dyke. I wish I lived closer to the areas that have a lot of gluten free friendly foods. Where is this bakery? If I ever go out that way, I might check it out.

I think the bakery you are referring to is Celiac Specialties in Chesterfield Township on Jefferson. You can get some of their products at Lifesmart Foods on Hall Rd (M-59) between Schoenner and M-53. Vince & Joe's also carries their products, but Vince & Joe's have their own gluten free baked goods that they make right there in their bakery and they are MUCH better and far less expensive (and nicer, too). There are Vince & Joe's on 25 Mile in Macomb Twsp. and on Garfield Rd. in Clinton Twsp. My daughter has eaten several of their gluten-free baked goods and has not reacted to them.

In any case, they are all well worth a trip. You can buy many products frozen, or bring them home and freeze them--they will be fine.

Also, G F Cucina's Restaurant on Mound between 16 Mile and 17 Mile roads is AWESOME!!!! They are CSA certified for their entirely gluten free menu, and the food is better than you can get at most restaurants--very reasonably priced.

**I probably sound like a Macomb County ad rep or something, but it's only because I have tried them all and am a loyal customer to those who don't poison my kid. We are truly grateful for establishments who are educating themselves to the needs of a celiac family, and who strive to maintain the stringent quality needed to make safe products. So I will give them all high marks whenever I can ;)

Thank you for that list of restaraunts and stores. I have relatives out that way, and eating out is always embarassing to bring my lunchbox. Now I want to go visit the relatives just so I can try the restaraunts and bakeries.

Anyone know of any Asian Markets around here? I haven't found any and I want cheap flour! Even a middeastern Market would be nice. I think they have special flours too.

Celiac Specialties or maybe Specialty in Chesterfield township.

They have THE BEST gluten free doughnuts! If I remember right they are 23 mile and Jefferson.

Some of the local health food stores sell the products in the frozen food sections.
