Yia Yia's Italian Bistro, Mama mia, it's made to order

I don't think I am very classy. I am the guy that picks out anything but iceberg lettuce from my salad. I wear flip flops to a fancy restaurant. So goes my disclaimer for when I go to a fancy restaurant. (It was our five year anniversary and first time out of the house together without baby) I had a gluten free Pizza at Yia Yia's and didn't dig it too much. It had all these fancy spices and no red sauce. Very fancy. Not my style. I still would prefer a regular cheese pizza. It was also a bit dry and crumbly anyway.
However, they had some other things on the menu. We brought our own pasta just in case, which was awesome since they ran out of gluten free pasta. Ashley had some buttery sauce with Chicken that I liked a lot. I am sure next time I go I will enjoy my pasta but I am not getting the pizza. yechh. I'm still not classy.

Ashley with her yummy pasta!

Chipotle makes my tastebuds dance to la cucaracha! Ole!

Chipotle has many gluten free options. The burrito bowl is yummy as fast food gets, however, you must tell them to change gloves before making yours and if your experience is like mine, then they will certainly scowl at you as if you have asked for a whopper with the condiments on the side. Jeez, people, I could seriously get sick. Give me a break! Otherwise, they put glutinous hands all over the bowl. Since Celiac has made my stomach sensitive to spicy I always get the pork which is not hot at all. Swimming in Sour cream, I feel like I am back in Chula Vista...ok...not really but it's good.

If you have two people and you want to eat on the cheap. Get a burrito bowl and an extra bowl of rice for only 80 cents more. Ashley and I like to split it. Yes, we are cheapo but that is how you gotta do it. Overall, Chipotle is one of the faster, cheaper places I can eat so I enjoy it often. It's the closest I will get to the border in Wichita. iUF!

If you are Mr money bags, then go ahead and get the soda and chips. That's what I did last time. Thanks for the gift certificate, Seth and Naomi! I feel like Richy Rich!

Gluten Free Apple Crumb: Not too Crummy

Since it was my birthday last week, we bought an Apple Crumb (pie). We bought it at "Food For Thought" market. It is made by Gillian's Foods. Now since I've gone gluten free in August of 2008 I have yet to have a pie. There are lots of cakes and brownies for celiacs but not so much pie. This one was pretty good. The apples were tasty and it was sweet enough. The crust was a little tasteless and hard. The crumb part was scrumptious with a mild sandy aftertaste. I give this pie a 5/10 for regular pies, a 8/10 for gluten free and a 4/10 for pricing. ($15)

Have you had any gluten free pie? Who made it? How much was it? Where did you buy it?

PF Changs no longer taking special orders

I went to PF Changs for my birthday on Saturday and the manager informed me that they are no longer taking special orders since they had heard side stories of people getting sick. Ironically I ordered off the GF menu that day and got sick. It was probably something else. Oh well.
