Sometimes It'S Good To Be Gluten-Free

Rate this topic

OK - obviously not always, as my extended family had a "game night" last night at my cousin's house, where my parents brought pizza for everyone.

I had a couple of ham sandwiches on home baked gluten-free bread, and some of the salad.

But tonight, my wife, who generally cooks on the weekends, announced that she felt like having macaroni and cheese for dinner (I know, this doesn't sound good yet - I'm getting there).

Of course, I gave her the hurt puppy expression, which resulted in her offering to make me an omelette. I said (not truly petulantly, as I make better omelettes than she does) I'd make my own, and proceeded to make a ham omelette (no cheese, as I'm CF too), some fried potatoes, gluten-free toast (with faux dairy spread), and fresh squeezed orange juice.

I brought my "breakfast for dinner" to the dinner table, and enjoyed the envious glances from my wife and children, who sat there eating their boxed mac & cheese.

Being a nice guy, I'd made extra fried potatoes, which I shared with the rest of the family.

Sometimes, it's good to be gluten-free.

I have found that's one of the best things about being gluten free. The dishes I take to other places are always envied:)

Yep, when I take gluten-free goodies everyone wants to try them..... David, I'm glad you fit into your gluten-free skin but honestly there is no reason why you can't take gluten-free pizza with you. I cart gluten-free food every where we go..& always have plenty to share with the gluten eaters. It is not uncommon for people to now ask for a gluten-free food even when no one but me is gluten-free!!!!!

Funny pizza story sort of on topic...

For the last 2 years my son's best friend has raved to his mom about my gluten-free pizza. He's even told her to get the recipe. She always chuckled commenting that she knew the ingredients weren't in her pantry. Well a couple weeks ago she began converting her family to gluten-free. She's had classic Celiac symptoms, although she tested negative via blood test. She decided that she was going to do it to see if it made her feel better anyway. (which happily, only 5 days into it she could feel a difference) Anyway, her family does pizza and movie night like we do, but they always get take out. She said her son was going to be so happy when I dropped off the pizza recipe and a "mix" for her first pizza (I mixed all the dry ingredients together as a little "gift"). Guess he won't need my pizza anymore!

Thanks for the thought Mamaw. I do occasionally make Gluten-free Casein-free pizza, but since I've been trying to avoid tomatoes lately, and hate cheese substitutes, it's getting harder and harder.

The best one I've had lately was a form of Lahmacun I found in Mark Bittman's Best Recipes in the World - It's basically pizza crust covered in ground lamb with some onions and pinenuts, plus some spices, with a bit of lemon juice. Yum.

Lol, hurt puppy look, I'm a sucker for that in guys. (Not in puppies so much.)

Anyway...yeah sometimes it's good to be gluten-free. I find in that, sometimes it does garner special attention. In no way do I seek or want that, but with food being such an integral part of life, it always comes up. In the past years, I've been touched by the efforts some people have made for me gluten-wise...recommending me to places, letting me know excitedly if they dined somewhere and saw a gluten-free menu...etc. It's always sweet to know people care, and this gluten free diet has made me realize a little that some people actually do! :lol: .... :unsure:
