Spur of the Moment Dining Out

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.  🙂
