About Last Night

So yeah um... Last night's posting was a little odd.

Basically I fell asleep with the TV on and woke up around 3am-ish. I was awake enough to remember I hadn't posted yet. So I posted. And I vaguely remember that I thought it was both expedient and funny to do it a stream of consciousness kind of way.

So the Super Bowl is this weekend and we're having a shindig. We're making sure that everything is gluten free for Harry. That said we aren't telling anyone that the food is ALL gluten free. Partially because we don't want to sway someone's opinion ahead of time, partially because some of these are just "off the shelf" and partially because the guys at work have been making fun of our cooking / baking whenever we bring stuff in and so we want to say "Did you like it? Do you realize it was ALL GF?" I will be posting our recipes to Harry's blog but here's our planned menu.


  • Veggie Platter
  • Knorr Veggie Dip
  • Chips
  • Salsa
  • Salad
  • Potato Skins

Main Course:

  • Tacos (with Toppings)
  • Taco Salad with Chebe Bowls
  • Homemade Chili
  • Pulled Pork Rollups
  • Capt'n Cruch Chicken
  • Chicken Wings


  • Beer
  • Various Hard Liquors
  • Hot Chocolate
  • Coffee / Tea
  • Soda (Store bought and Flavored Syrups)


  • Peanut / Plain M&M's
  • Brownies
  • Ice Cream
  • Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie
  • Popcorn with Flavor Sprinkles
  • Peanuts

A few notes... Yes I know I said that everything was gluten free... The one exception to that is beer. We could serve nothing but GF Sorgham beer... but we broke down on that one. Same with the Hard Liquor. We have some of indeterminate GF status from before Harry was diagnosed so while I'm not pushing it on people, since I'm not going to drink it, I'm certainly going to offer it around. The other big thing is that some of the foods (especially "off the shelf" stuff) cannot be verified to be officially gluten free we are basing some on recommendations and some on label reading. WE haven't had any problems with the foods we're making but obviously formulations change.
