  2. Emily and Nick shared some news...my first grandchild is going to be a boy!

  3. Nick Sasso Emily Hendrie and Corey Smith

  4. Concert at the beach with Don't Call Me Shirley

  5. Just got an expected vacation day. Thank you, Whidden ! Gonna jump in the pool...

  6. This recipe is so good! I am making this again today! Looking forward to ham and cheese sandwiches and toast with eggs for breakfast.
  7. I'm happy to report the area around University of Alabama is well-versed in the gluten free arts! We ate at the Mellow Mushroom on University Blvd the first night. A large, thin crust pizza easily feeds 2 people. I noted a good selection of gluten-free ciders and ales on the menu. The staff did announce there was a gluten free order and took the appropriate precautions. My daughter loved the atmosphere and will definitely go back with friends. The next day we had lunch at Jason's Deli on McFarland Blvd in Tuscaloosa. I was happily surprised to see they had Udi's bread displayed prominently and it was a large loaf, unlike the small loaves available in my local supermarkets and health food stores. There is a gluten sensitive menu which made choosing just one sandwich difficult! I went with the chicken salad and really enjoyed the ease of ordering and not feeling "different" because of being gluten free. They also served hot meals and had a large salad bar. 2 thumbs up for this place. I'm back home now and glad to say I had an event free trip in Alabama. Roll Tide!
  8. Anyone have suggestions for gluten free dining out in the University of Alabama area? I'm dropping my daughter off at college and will be in the area for 24 hours or so. Thanks in advance!
  9. Hi,   The first thing that came to mind after reading your blog was cholelithiasis. Do you still have your gall bladder?  You might want to check in with your doctor and make a mental note of what you had to eat prior to the new back pain.   Hope this helps.   Bev
  10. Hi! Just wanted to add my 2 cents worth...have always been a fan of the 99 restaurant chain. Love their burgers, which I usually order "bun less". I have a new favorite recently. The salmon with the balsamic glaze served with grilled vegetables is delicious and gluten free. Enjoy!
  11. Hi Trish, I've been gluten free for 5 years. That would be great if you wanted to start a new support group for Southern NH. Where do you live? I am in Manchester. There are so many places to eat gluten free in this area so that's not a problem, but I would love to share stories with other people who eat this way. It's amazing to go to the grocery stores and even the cashiers are familiar with why you are buying gluten free items. Let me know if you do decide to go forward with the support group idea. Bev
  12. Betty Crocker brownies are chocolate and butter. What's not to like? Mine don't last long enough to freeze. Try adding mini chocolate chips,nuts or M and M's. Verrry good!
  13. At times like this, it's best to just do what you need to do to be safe and apologize later. The important thing is to be part of "the team" not who is eating what. Be present in the moment. You'll be okay.
  14. I wouldn't touch their pizza with a 10 foot pole. Talk about trying to capitolize on the gluten free "trend". Fortunately, Manchester NH has lots of gluten free options, including the fabulous Portland Pies and an entire menu at Fratello's. When I need home made pizza, I make the crust with the King Arthur flour company's gluten free mix. Very satisfying. Such a shame the Domino's couldn't go the full mile and take precautions to make their new pizza crust safe for celiacs. Perhaps a write in campaign will help persuade them? Surely we have the numbers.
  15. Miss Molly, Sorry you had a bad experience at Romano's Macaroni Grill. Since you are in the area, you might try the Seadog Brewery in Woburn. ( I know, the name is a little scary for celiacs!) I can vouch for a safe gluten free eating out experience there...salads and especially the pizza. They are a small new england based chain worth traveling for. Hope you're feeling better! Mamacita
