I wasn't expecting to start the whole thing today, but woke up this morning and realized one box of cereal on top of our fridge (the one way back in the back that I can barely reach? The one that's been there for maybe a year because nobody will eat it? That one) is gluten-free. Add that to an overabundance of fruit that's plenty ripe and won't last - thanks Hubs for the overstock - and I've got my first start on a gluten-free day.
Why stop there?
By 3, I was ready for some bread. There's nothing quite as filling as bread. Let's face it, a gigantic bowl of fruit might squelch my sweet tooth, but I'll still be hungry in ten minutes. So...
Dragged Monsoon to the health food store (without a list), grabbed some things that looked good enough to eat from the gluten-free aisle, and let him pull me out the door. Unpacking my purchases, I realize there is only one product that is NOT dessert. In the whole bag. *shrug*
So here I sit, laptop covered in gooey-sticky chocolate brownie and I am one happy girl. Oh, and seeing as how I didn't actually buy anything for dinner, we ended up eating a pizza from the local gluten-free restaurant - which was delicious! - and picked up a loaf of GF bread and some (more) GF chocolate chip cookies while we were there.
All in all, the first day was less painful than I anticipated. After all, I can still have chocolate.
Sanity or Patience: choose one.
Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?
