Highlights of a Glutenfree Girl's Week 9.27.12

The past couple of weeks have been full of gluten free surprises that have caught me off guard in a good way! Brace yourself, I get pretty emotional :) 

Enjoyed another delicious meal at True Food Kitchen! Our server was so well versed in the gluten free language; it was such a refreshing dining experience.

A few weeks ago I blogged about a gluten free snack pack with CrunchMaster Crackers on a JetBlue flight. I was overjoyed last Wednesday morning when I received an email from Twitter stating Dana Vollmer, mentioned my blog. Dana is a gluten free Olympic gold medalist, currently holds the world record for the 100 meter butterfly and is a spokesperson for Crunchmaster. I was so ecstatic when I saw that my blog was mentioned on her Twitter feed! It’s great to see the gluten free community coming together and supporting one another. I love it!

Last Saturday I watched one of my best friend's marry the man of her dreams. The celebration was nestled in the rolling vineyard hills of Arroyo Grande. It couldn't have been a more perfect day, the sun was shining, there was a slight breeze and love was definitely in the air. It was such a joyous occasion, all my best girlfriends back together again with our significant others to celebrate under the stars. 

After enjoying several delicious appetizers, my favorite being the  prosciutto wrapped asparagus, and sipping on Chardonnay it was time for dinner. I knew the meal was catered by Mama's Meatball, a famous Italian eatery located in San Luis Obispo who cater to the gluten free diet. The meal was served family style and after several main dishes were brought to our table I had a panic moment. I looked to Mark and said, "I don’t think I can eat anything here." Then all of a sudden I hear Bri, the stunning bride say “this girl is the gluten free one!” I couldn’t believe it, I literally bursted into tears. I was so overwhelmed with happiness! On their special day, Joe and Bri specially picked a meal just for me! 

Mama Meatball had made a separate plate just for me. I enjoyed the Risotto con Funghi e Spinaci- Tender Arborio rice with porcini mushrooms in a vegetable broth with spinach and Parmesan cheese.

What would I do without my best friends? They are so amazing! I feel so blessed and loved! Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Armstrong!
