Since Jacob was recently diagnosed with Celiac disease, and he started a gluten-free diet on December 28th, I thought a trip to the grocery store was in order. I normally shop by myself and enjoy the magic of my surroundings. Every turn down another aisle is a delight to the eyes. There is a Starbucks in my Kroger’s. Shopping for me isn’t a chore it’s an experience unless I take the boys and then it can go from experience to EXPERIENCE! Must overcome aversion to shopping with kids in 2012(newest resolution). Look Jake, here is a whole display of gluten-free food. What would you like to buy? He chose the gf pizza crust and gf blueberry muffins. The muffins were $6.99 for 4 and the bread is $5.89 a loaf. He did not want bread. We did pick up some gf hamburger rolls that were only $2.49 for 4.
I wonder what happened to Sam during my fascinating gf tour? Oh yes, here he is at the sushi bar.He correctly pointed out to his brother that sushi was made with rice which is gluten free. One little problem was that he wanted to get the ones with imitation crab rolled up inside. Sorry Sam, that fake crab contains gluten. Off we went to read more labels.
I am so over this life skill teaching EXPERIENCE at Kroger’s. My life lesson is I really don’t like to shop with my kids. New resolutions for 2012, leave kids at home when I go grocery shopping. Now there is a resolution I can keep!
