My Birthday Surprise

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I had a wonderful birthday surprise yesterday. My family arranged for a chef to come to my house and prepare a birthday dinner. My daughter found her online and told her about my dietary restrictions. The chef was familiar with celiac and researched so she could prepare a totally organic and gluten free meal. It was amazing. This was the menu:

Salad with pears, walnuts, dried cherries

Macadamia nut encrusted snapper with fruit chutney topping

rice with cilantro

green beans with corn

flourless chocolate cake

I was so happy to stay at home and enjoy a meal with the stress of eating at a restaurant and worrying about gluten.

Oh YUM!!! That is awesome! What a nice daughter! :lol:

I think that is such a unique idea, I may have to put the bug in my hubby's ear for NEXT year! This year he's supposed to be building me (us) a massage table!! :wub::rolleyes:

I guess Scott must be okay with us taking over the Tech/Help category for our personal chatter! ;) He still hasn't made us a Gab Room! :lol:

Hope you have/had a great day!

That's an amazing menu...no deprivation whatsoever! You are so lucky to have such a supportive daughter!

I am just starting on this journey and feel optimistic about the future. There's a lot to learn, but it will be so worth the effort.

All best birthday wishes from a fellow-Pisces (3/1)
