Thanks for all the birthday wishes for Lauren!!!! She has enjoyed hearing about all the different people who wished her Happy Birthday!!!! She wanted cupcakes this evenings instead of a regualr cake so it was chocolate cupcakes with hot pink icing....go figure LOL. Caleb (our elf on the shelf) had a birthday party with Barbie and other toy figures set up on the kitchen table for her when she got up. After cake we headed to her basketball game...now it is time to settle in and get ready for tomorrow. I am supposed to be a chapperone (first time ever) for the second grade trip to see The Muppet Christmas Carol and then out to eat....Pray for me!

She always loves going to Disney World, because they are very good about providing good gluten free alternatives. She can really eat better there than she can at most other places. She loves getting cheeseburgers at Disney World because she can eat them with an actual bun. The problem turned out to be french fries. They told her they could make gluten free fries, and they were fried in their own dedicated fryer. She ate this meal for the first day or 2 of the trip before getting very sick with a reaction to gluten, but she had no idea where she ate any. She was basically out of commission for about 2 days. Her first day back at the parks, we were in EPCOT. She went to the US pavillion for lunch and apparently the manager there has a better understanding of gluten allergies. She told my sister that they do have gluten free fries, and they're fried in their own dedicated fryer, but Disney re-uses their oil, so the oil in that fryer was probably used on the regular fries yesterday.

So, tell her to be cautious about ordering anything fried from a counter service restaurant. My sister felt confident that table service meals were safe, because the chef would always come out and talk to her and she could tell they understood the situation. At counter service places, it was always just a manager with a separate menu that showed what was or wasn't considered gluten free, so we're pretty certain that was how she got the cross-contamination, especially after hearing that oil story when she wanted to order fries.
Wow Andy - that doesn't sound reassuring at all.

I hope Disney did something to compensate for this experience.

Happy Birthday to Lauren! and I dunno, but it sounds like a sweet chaperone gig, Muppet Christmas Carol is easily in my top 3 adaptations of the Dickens Classic (and I pretty much own them all)

One of these days at a gift auction, I want to try to have a buffet, a lot of people that are sitting in groups bring a ton of food with them, the last auction the table next to us had a huge tray of fried chicken, it looked really good and the smell had me drooling, now it always seems like all these people who bring all this food don't eat a lot of it, I wanted to go over and offer like $3 for a (chicken)breast, if they said no, I would say, Come on you know you want another blue ticket

But my wife wouldn't let me, oh it's going to happen one of these days, just got to be sitting with the right people
