Last night Jon had a hockey game right after his baseball practice. This left Hannah and I without any time for dinner and with the hockey game not starting until almost 7:00 PM, waiting until after the game was not an option. Jon has to be at the game about 30 minutes beforehand, so I dropped him off and Hannah and I headed out in search of something to eat. I didn’t want fast food…..too much of a risk of CC and there were plenty of other restaurants around. Question was, which one would be most accommodating to my GF diet. I hadn’t dined at any of them, except Ruth’s Chris & The Fish Market, both of which were a little more than I wanted to spend on a quick dinner. So, I saw Champp’s and decided to give it a try. I figured at the very least I could ask them to slap a burger in a clean frying pan and make me a dry salad (I carry dressing in my purse in small packets ~ made by Kraft). I asked to speak with the manager on duty and she immediately said there would be no problem and headed off to get me a print out of what would be safe for me to eat.
The manager returned with a nice print out of many things that would be safe for me to eat. There was chili, several different meal salads, burgers, grilled chicken, fajitas (sans tortillas), steak. WOW! I was impressed! I ended up ordering the Cobb salad with grilled chicken. They had several GF dressings, but I stuck with my Kraft Light Balsamic that I carry with me. I know there are no onions in it; those make me almost as sick as gluten. My salad was HUGE and very, very yummy. Way too much bacon, black olives & egg, but still very yummy. Next time I know to order light on that stuff. $9.99 for that….great deal. I will definitely be adding this to my list of places to eat GF safely. :)
