In Pennsylvania, you cannot buy beer in a convenience store. They also do not have beer stores. So, if you want to buy a six-pack of beer to take home and enjoy, you have to go to a pub or a restaurant. Jim asked me to pick him up a six-pack today so he could have a beer when he gets off work at ten. I went to Fairfield, about five miles west of the campground, to Ventura’s.
Ventura’s is an Italian restaurant that makes the best pizza in this area. When I went in to get the beer, it smelled sooooo good in there. So, when I was paying for the beer, I asked if they had any gluten free dishes on the menu. The guy running the register started to say no, but the owner had been passing through and heard me ask. He came up to the register and asked me what my allergy was.
I explained to him that I was allergic to wheat, and could not eat any product that has gluten in it. He told me that he is a nutritionist, and understands allergies, and celiac disease. He said that they use HIGH gluten flours to make their pizza dough, but that if I would bring him some flour he would be glad to make a pizza for me anytime I wanted to come in and eat with my husband!
Ok, so the other day I wrote about how I did not miss eating pizza. Maybe I don’t, but I DO miss eating pizza WITH MY HUSBAND. So, I am going to be taking some flour to Rob at Ventura’s, and I will let you all know what happens.
Oh, yeah, and while I was out, I also stopped at the convenience store and bought a scratch off lottery ticket. I won $70. Yippee!
