I've been gluten free for over 2 1/2 years now.
At first it was a horrible challenge.
I was resentful to everyone who could eat it.
To those that that thought I was doing this as a fad.
Then I learned to ignore the nay-sayers,
And love the supporters,
And...well, just embrace my new life with food.
It's been a blessing.
And I've been able to help quite a few people with support.
So, I'm glad to be able to give back.
There's a gfree bakery in town.
I stopped there to pick up some pizza crust one Friday,
And saw some foccacia bread.
Then I remembered how much I miss sandwiches.
Particularly ones from Panera Bread.
Paired with a strawberry salad.
So, I grabbed the bread.
And on Sunday after church, I indulged myself a sandwich for lunch.
Complete with garlic aioli dressing left over from sweet potato fries.
At first, D couldn't wrap his brain over why I would want to take a picture of a sandwich....
...then he asked "When's the last time you had a sandwich?"
To which I replied, "One that I enjoyed as much as I'm about to enjoy this?"
Answer: Over 2 1/2 years ago.
