Hidden gluten sucks.
And not just gluten I didn't see or realize, but gluten some ignorant ass of a chef or baker "promises" isn't in their food, but yup. It's there. I'll explain.
I accidentally booby trapped myself Tuesday night. HHH asked me to make him some onion rings. Ok. No problem. I am making the onion rings, setting up the plate and then I did the stupidest thing ever. I ate 6 of them.
OMG! I am sooooooo stupid some time!
So all day Wednesday I felt like crap. HUGE crap. Sick, nauseous, ugly, crap. HHH felt bad for me. He went and got me a smoothie and then stopped by a little bakery that had just opened. He was talking to the baker and asking him if they had any gluten free treats. The guy said no, but he was developing some soon. Then HHH asked if the cheesecake cups were ok for me and the baker said "Sure, just don't eat the crust on the bottom." So HHH bought a cherry cheesecake cup for me. It was delicious. So good! And I cut the crust off the bottom and gave it to Junior.
30 minutes later.....
I'm DYING! I was feeling horrible. Poor HHH thinks he POISONED me! I looked it up and yep. Cheesecake uses flour as a thickener. Gah! I wanted to die. I wanted to throw up! I wanted to crawl into a hole. It wasn't pretty. Wanna know the best part? We were on our way to dinner! Great! We ended up having dinner. I started feeling better after some time went by, not by much, but some. We got through dinner and then a little shopping before going home and then I was blah for the rest of the night.
So now I guess I'm not even going to be able to take a baker or chef's word when it comes to gluten in their stuff!
Frustrated.... thy name is Blondefabulous!
