Gluten Free Dinning

Entries in this blog

Just a funny for the day. We were in Arizona recently and facing the grueling task of finding something to eat for lunch. I.say grueling because I was with family that treat my diagnosis as if I do it for attention. We spotted a cute place that was quite busy which is usually a good sign. However, once seated I realized most were waiting for food and there was one frantic waitress. Having worked for awhile in the occupation I could empathize so we just waited patiently. When it came time to order I did the old salad routine with the usual please be careful as I have Celiac. She looked at me and said "[b]Do you really!" [/b]I was so blown away I couldn't think of what to say. My first thought was, how do I prove it. My husband stepped in and said yes I do and we made some jokes knowing the poor girl was totally over wrought. Later our professional chef friend said many times his waiters or waitresses make total effort to accommodate gluten free.then the customer will say, "well, I can have a little, I was just asking" I'd never thought of it in those terms but I'm still stuck back on proving it......maybe start a movement like "I'm a card carrying Celiac"??
