I’m drinking the day and eating the pizza.
Because I am having a bit of a carpe diem moment this week. My doctor ordered me to eat gluten to prepare for a test.
So, for the last week, I’ve been busy with some serious cramming.
And it’s been a dizzying sort of delish, the kind that begins with pizza and well, will probably end with pizza. Because you can’t have a serious study session without pizza.
Gluten-free pizza cannot compete with this crust.
After more than a year of eating gluten-free, I’m having quite the food reunion.
Meet the star of Thanksgiving 2010.
My old friend, stuffing.
And her distant, but sweet cousin pie showed up too.
I was so touched when my Pinterest food boards made an appearance at the reunion. After all, I haven’t known them that long. It was comforting to see them get along so well with my dear friend the bakery case.
The bakery case, shimmering like a mirage.
In the corner (of the freezer) I found the last cupcake from my daughter’s birthday last month. What a treat!
Cupcake with a cookie dough center.
I met delightful strangers . . .
Pumpkin whoopie pie
And pals that always got me in trouble when we hung out. . .
Frosting with a little scone.
And no get together would be complete without a few partypoopers. They always show up, right?
Don’t worry, I ate ‘em.
My closest friend, warm crusty bread was there. I can’t seem to find any photographs, though. Couldn’t stay still long enough, I suppose.
But believe me, we had plenty of face time.
Good thing, because my gluten party is almost over. Will you pass me a napkin? I’ve got a date with exercise.
Just as soon as I emerge from my carb coma.
What food is the star at your party?
Tell me in the comments! I have three more gluten days to go and I might’ve missed something (it’s possible).
