Eating Gluten-Free at Carrabba's

Italian Can be for Everyone

Being gluten-free is most challenging when you don't have control over how the food is made.




Your mother-in-law's house.

Okay, so I can't help you with the last one, but restaurants are coming right along! More and more have gluten-free menus, and many have knowledgable waiters and managers.

But what about Italian restaurants? Pasta, pasta, pasta. Pizza, pizza, pizza. Foccacia. Crostini. Ciabatta.

None of those are gluten-free in their original form. But just because I can't have those things, that doesn't mean I can't enjoy an Italian dinner out with my family.

The Night Circus

Book Review

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.

This book was recommended to me by the library's web site.

Have you ever looked at your library's web site? I only started doing so fairly recently.

I found lists of what's new. And, of course, I found out what was on the shelf in my favorite local library.

But I also I found reviews. Like, a review of this book.

It sounded interesting.

And then, some weeks later, I was talking with two of the librarians in my favorite local library.

Do you ever do that? I highly recommend it. Especially when of them tells me that she isn't as well-read as I am.

Really? Is that possible? Me, better read than the librarian?

Maybe. Maybe not. Still, I was quite surprised when she said that. Especially since it is her job to read twenty young adult books in a month and a half. Or so she said.

Anyways, the other librarian suggested this book. I remembered that I had read a review.

It was a positive review.
