Celiac Excitement!

Okay...so most of my posts are completely Noah related...this one - just partially Noah related:)

So - When I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 14 years ago we were lucky to find crackers or pre-made goods that did not taste like cardboard. Now, I have a pantry full of pre-made, yummy things, a freezer full of pre-made even yummier things and the need for weight watchers when not pregnant to prove it:) So - why the Celiac Excitement? TWO reasons...

1. WE ARE GETTING A PIZZA PLACE! This is NO joke. Would I joke about something so potentially exciting? Nope. I am serious. It is coming right down the road at 249 and Louetta - it will be called Pizza Fusion. They will have non gluten free (GF) pizza, but also - GLUTEN FREE pizza. I am insanely excited. BUT - to make it even better. You may be thinking, how could it get better? WELL - they will have a casein free (CF) crust and CF cheese too! Meaning, we can take our sweet little Noah out for pizza! Such a normal kid thing that he will be able to do!


2. Noah is SO into the word pretzel, as mentioned before and loves his GFCF pretzels we buy at Whole Foods. Personally, I love them too. He loves them plain or even dipped in mustard. Well, if it ends up Noah has to stay GF (Here is for hoping not!) and CF then we are going to have to make a trip to Maryland - because there is a place called Noah's Pretzels (appropriate, huh?)
http://www.noahspretzels.com/ that serves GFCF pretzels!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND IN A MALL! Oh I cannot imagine the normalcy of that!!!!

Anyways, just had to share two huge Celiac milestones in my life. A place to get GF pizza that I do not have to drive HOURS to or even take a flight and then a cab to get to and even delivers - and a place that serves GFCF pretzels in a mall! Amazing how far it has all come in 14 years!!!!
