While we were on our trip to Jack’s memorial in Atlanta, we had to eat out several times. On the way back we stopped for lunch at Ruby Tuesday. I had eaten at a Ruby Tuesday a couple years back & knew that I could eat a burger & steamed veggies & salad at the very least. Imagine my surprise when I was speaking with the manager & he knew what I was talking about! I had started to explain and when I asked him if he knew what I was talking about, he said yes & went on to say that he was going to go print me out a menu of things I could eat. I inquired about cross contamination, especially after my experience at Cracker Barrel a couple days before (long story short……not safe for anyone following a gluten-free diet). The manager said that the staff is specifically trained on food allergies & the dangers of cross contamination. Great news! You can view the gluten-free and other allergen information here. I ended up ordering a bison burger with havarti cheese, steamed sugar snap peas & sauteed portabella mushrooms. I also had a huge salad from the salad bar. I wish my camera wasn’t buried in the back of the car at the time, but I wasn’t expecting this to be a blogging experience. I checked out the bar before deciding to order it and had my own dressing with me. All of the items (mostly veggies) I included on my plate were at the end away from the pasta salads, won tons, croutons & dressings. Though they did have a couple gluten-free dressings, they were dangerously close to gluten-filled items. If I had not brought my own dressing, I would have asked for dressing from the back or used the EVOO & vinegar that was out.
Now, for the news you have all been waiting for……the winner of my giveaway last week.
