i went to this store on bloor today, i think it's called organics on bloor or something like that.
i was there about a month ago, and asked for gf bread and she said she was getting some soon. and she did!
but alas, it's little stream, and i don't like little stream. i found it mushy and unbreadlike. so i told her so. she asked me if there was one i liked, and i said, yeah!!! sterks!!! so she wrote down the info, and then i told her about kinnickinick bagels, donuts and bread....
i really really really hope she gets sterks bread in!!!! she is going to call me if she gets it in so i will post here if she does, because it's really the closest to "normal" sliced bread i've had yet. in fact, i forgot it was gluten free when i was eating a toasted sandwich, while doing stuff on my computer.
also, a new "natural" food store opened up literally around the corner from where i live. i am going to investigate thoroughly when they open and try to influence them. i'm drooling over the idea of sterks bread around the corner from me!!!
ok, and for my whine of the day. there was a union meeting this week, and the secretary was bugging me to go, and tried to bribe me with pizza. i normally don't need bribing to go to the meetings but the timing was all wrong this week with picking up my kid etc. so i told her i can't eat pizza. then she said, well there's nice sandwiches, and so i said i can't eat sandwiches. so then she asked me why, and i said, i can't eat gluten, and she said, oh so and so can't either so i always order her a salad, so i can do the same for you next time. which KIND OF seems like a nice thing to do, except that salads are not the same thing as pizza. it's very hard for me to feel like i've had dinner with a salad, unless it's say....got a whole pile of protein things in it like chicken or nuts, and then also some beans, and some rice. but i know she didn't mean that kind of salad. maybe i will give her il fornello's number.
ok, i have one more whine. it bugs me when i go to my friends house and they almost serve me curry with flour in it, and i carefully ask if there's gluten in it, and one of my friends says no, because she doesn't think there is, and the other one says, yeah there is, but it's only two teaspoons of flour. my parents did the "it's only a little bit" thing to me, so have a bunch of other extended family. how do i get them to understand? should i bother? i don't want to be the high maintenance guest, maybe i should just eat before i go anywhere.
