Back from Disney

Greetings. I have gotten all your comments and emails; I just haven't had enough time to answer, I hope to catch up this week. We are back, and it was a great trip, and Disney is as great as it is cracked up to be. (The above picture is from Animal Kingdom and the safari, it was beautiful.)

This will not a super long post, but I will throw a few things in here, and maybe more another day if I think of them.

~ I still had the flu while we were there, but thank goodness for some good doctoring and some good gluten free drugs, I was able to soldier on and make some great memories with my children and husband.

~ We did get a small condo to stay in and that worked great; we stayed at Floridays Resort, and it was in a great location.

~ We attended a show called Arabian Nights. It was wonderful, my two children were completely mesmerised. The surprising part? The dinner was naturally gluten free, as well as the dessert. The waiter even knew that the chocolate sauce on the ice cream contained corn syrup and asked me if that was a problem. Very cool.

~ One tip when ordering burgers gluten free at Disney, as for the sides you want, and they will get them from the back. I read somewhere that the better term for chefs than cross-contamination is cross-contact. The word contamination refers to germs or bacteria.

~ I did not take pictures off all the food I ate, or every place I ate at. This was my vacation after all. But if you Google it, I think you can find pictures if you like.

~ Go to the Town Hall and ask for a list of the gluten free foods available and you will get a print out of everything.

That's all for now. I have many things to do, now that I am finally feeling better!

I'm so glad you had a great gluten free trip with your family. Thanks for letting us know to use the word contact versus contamination. It does make more sense when you think about it, especially to a chef who always has to think about shelf life, bacteria, food temperatures, etc.

I hope you are feeling better now.
