We got back yesterday from a very soggy weekend visiting family in Maryland. We hopped on a plane at Nashville International early Friday morning to arrive at Baltimore at 12:00 PM. I have not flown since 1997-things are a bit different, to say the least! There was no TSA, no 3-1-1, and planes had a lot more room.
I had brought some gluten free snacks with me as I was almost sure that I could not eat anything at the airport. Also, my in-laws are not gluten free. I planned ahead for lunches at my mother-in-law’s house by bringing gluten free crackers. She planned on tuna salad for my lunch for both days. Unfortunately, something in the tuna salad made me sick. I made my own the next day with just mayonnaise, salt and pepper and I was fine. I also think that drinking soda on the plane contributed to my upset stomach. I have not had soda since April. I don’t think I can handle the HFCS anymore.
My mother-in-law had given me a list of restaurants to choose from. I had reviewed their menus and given her four choices. The first night we went to Kelsey’s in Ellicott City. They had a pretty good choice of dishes that were either gluten free or could be made gluten free. The waitress was very attentive to my dietary restrictions and checked with the chef, who also made my dinner so that there would be no cross-contamination. I had the spinach salad with grilled salmon:
Bacon bits, diced red onion, sliced hard boiled egg, raspberry vinaigrette dressing
Grilled, or Jerk chicken +4.99 Blackened chicken +4.99 Grilled shrimp +7.99 Grilled steak +7.99 Ahi tuna +Market Grilled Salmon +7.99
