Gluten-Free Chatter

Lots of little things I want to share are running through my head, so I am going to combine them into one post so that it is easier to read for you all.

The kids and I went out to dinner last week at Bonefish Grill. We had a gift card, so what better excuse to not cook dinner? Jon ordered his old standby – Saucy Shrimp appetizer, as his main course. He loves this and I do as well, though I rarely get more than a taste. Anyone who has raised a teenage boy knows that food magically disappears once it is put in front of them.


I had the Chilean Sea Bass. I love, love, love sea bass and quickly bypassed any thoughts of salmon when I saw it on the menu. I decided to give the Chimichurri Sauce, a sauce made with extra virgin olive oil, Italian parsley, flavored with garlic and red pepper, a try (once I confirmed it was free of onions). I asked for it on the side for a couple of reasons. First, I hate how restaurants drench food in sauces & dressings when only a small amount is needed to add good flavor. Second, I wanted to make sure I liked it before it was all over my sea bass. I was not disappointed. I loved this dish!


I was a little disappointed that the green beans still same in seasoning, though I asked for it without. It was gluten-free, so I didn’t send it back for fear that other things would then come out incorrect. The meal was outstanding.

Of course we couldn’t leave without a little chocolate, right?! The flourless chocolate brownie is amazing!


It is supposed to come with berries on it, but since Jon was the one eating 95% of it, I let him order it the way he wanted it. It was TDF!

Redbridge Beer has been reformulated. Check out my review of it here.


There has been a lot of buzz about an article announcing the contamination of some gluten-free grains. Tricia Thompson writes about a study that was conducted on naturally gluten-free grains (these grains were not labeled “gluten-free”, they just didn’t contain gluten). The study found many of the gluten-free grains to contain levels of gluten ranging from 25 to 2,925 PPM. It seems that much like oats, those following the gluten-free diet may need to strictly stick with grains that are labeled gluten-free. There is a lot more information in Part 1 and Part 2 of Tricia’s articles. I don’t know about you, but I could do without the added confusion, but at the same time, am grateful for any information that will help keep Jon and me safe.
