Last night Annaleah had her 2.5 hours of dance classes. Dinner was going to be tough. I decided to make some spring roll wraps filled with spicy chicken salad. As we rushed out the door and started down the road I realized, I had forgotten the wraps at home. We left at 5pm. This meant no eating til 8:30pm.
Angel had already planned to get himself a burger or two at McDonalds. I tried racking my brain to see what I could eat.. hmm.. grill chicken salad should be fine. I know the croutons are in separate little bags.
I get up front and ask the cashier, “Do you put cheese on your salads?”. She responds, “yes we do”.
“Can I have mine without cheese??”
“Our salads are premade”
“Oh, nevermind. Two apple dippers please”
Angel looks at her and says.. “Cancel the order.” and walks out.
I am stunned.. I keep telling him to get himself his burgers. I don’t want him to go hungry.. He refuses and takes me arm as we walk out.. I can just image the people’s reaction behind us.
Angel decides we should just get a salad at ShopRite. I don’t remember there being salad bars there but I am not going to say anything. I did notice they have prepackaged salad (with cheese of course), but no salad bars in sight.
I continue with my shopping.. Could not find Udi bread anywhere (and there have a gluten free section that is three aisles long). Shopping was really difficult. I did end up finding Gluten free bisquick and just decided to get that. Although it was over 5.00 for a tiny box! I also did not find any gluten/dairy free frozen treats there ..
After shopping, Angel mentioned Chinese food. I searched my brain for something I may be allowed to eat. I know I can’t have soy sauce. I decide on an order of boneless ribs praying it is safe for me. So we order.. then pull up to Anna’s dance studio. It is now 7:30. We have about 45 minutes to eat.. However, they did not pack us a fork. So we didn’t get to eat til 8:48pm.
I know things will get easier with time.. Gotta think positive!
