I will try.
I am trying to simplify my food for the summer, so it will be easier and I won't feel tied to the kitchen. And, since I am feeling so great now, I want to do more, be outside, and be social with my friends, and children.
But, I digress. I wanted to jot a quick note about Quincy Market in Boston for anyone that might head that way, needing to be gluten free.
I love Quincy Market, and for those of you who haven't been there, it is a huge building filled with restaurant stalls of great food. I used to go there all the time. This was my first time there since not being able to eat what I want.
There is a Legal Seafood close to Fanueil Hall, so you could always eat there; they have a gluten free menu. We were going to eat there, but we feel like eating at a restaurant. Navy Boy and I wanted to take the children and eat casually at Quincy Market.
So taking my new idea of flexibility with me, we went. Navy Boy and children got pizza..Regina Pizza. Man, did that smell good!!! I went back in and browsed. To tell the truth..there wasn't much there to eat. I also did not want to get into a huge discussion. It was crowded and busy, and the stalls were getting ready to close.
I ended uo finding a beautiful shrimp cocktail plate at one of the seafood stalls. The shrimp were huge. It was expensive, but I would have spent more at the restaurant. So, I go my shrimp, shared some and then we got gelato for dessert.
And the best part?
It was fine. It was easy. And we did what we wanted, without getting tied down to a certain restaurant to eat. I felt freer than I have in awhile.
(By the way, sorry, about the lack of photos. We forgot the camera. We were very bummed, since it was my youngster's birthday, and now, no photos of the day!)
