I made a glutton out of myself yesterday at a celiac conference (for those who cannot eat gluten --wheat, barley, rye, or oats).  A group of Pittsburgh doctors who specialize in gastroenterology hosted some lectures and then we visited 22 gluten-free vendors who behaved like barkers at a circus:  “COME!  EAT, EAT!  TAKE MORE!  TRY THEM ALL!” 
It was exceedingly fun.  I came home with tons of goodies, including some bagels that are “to die for.”


Heard while I was eating a brownie:  “This is like trick-or-treating for celiacs!”

Heard while eating a doughnut:  “I can’t believe I’m walking around drinking gluten-free beer!”


  1. LOL, I'm glad you had a good time. :)

  2. I am beginning to think cyberspace is a small place. I read at one of Miss Language's friend's Mom's blogs (got that?) about a very similar experience. I just felt the need to share. :)

  3. I empathise completely. I went to a gluten-free show last Saturday week and had a ball. I bought some pizza bases that tasted like real wheat pizza bases, but without the tummy ache afterwards. I'm definitely going again next year.
