FOODIE FRIDAY for October 14, 2011

Sit down for this one, folks--it's gonna be a tough one to believe.

Ever since I've been back in Philly, I haven't had any cheese steaks.  Not even one.

Seriously.  I'm not pullin' your leg here.

It's because I've gone gluten-free.  Not for the fun of it (trust me, it's usually not tons of fun), but out of necessity.  Bothersome digestive symptoms have gone away since I made that switch, and my tummy's feeling a lot better.  

But it also means I don't get Philly cheese steaks, soft pretzels, or Tastykakes.  And I was really looking forward to those.  *sigh*  So instead, I search for restaurants that offer tasty gluten-free food (props to my parents and boyfriend, who are super-awesome and accompany me to the few places I can actually get something to eat--extra-special props to my mom for learning to cook yummy gluten-free meals for me).  Recently I found a local restaurant that makes plenty of foods gluten-free...but they can't spell.  I'm probably going to go eat there at some point, but I'm really hoping that they're better at cooking gluten-free than they are at spelling.


Take all the "childerns" out to dinner!  You can play a riveting game of "find the misspelling" while you wait for your food...



"Filo" dough isn't really an egregious mistake.  I can't say the same about their "scope" snafu, though...

Dammit!  I really wanted "stoppings" on my pizza...


Happy Friday, everyone!

Good look with going gluten-free! I have done a lot of GF baking for my sister and a co-worker, so let me know if you want dessert recipes!

Fun fact: We're having a party at work today and everyone is supposed to bring something. The organizer sent an e-mail assigning types of food to different departments. My department got "deserts."

WOW! All those errors on the same menu?!?

There was a BBQ place in the local mall food court that I refused to go to because their sign said: "Burney Brothers. The way barbecue is suppose to be." {shudder}

Thanks, Maggie! I've been gluten-free for about 3 months now. It isn't easy sometimes, but I'm feeling a lot better, so it's totally worth it. I would love to check out some of your dessert recipes! Also, LOL @ "deserts." That's too funny! :)

Yep, Marie, all those errors came from the same online menu! I kind of want to go there now to see if they have any other spelling errors on signage in or around the restaurant (I'm betting they do)... ;) I hope the Burney Brothers are better at barbecue than they are at grammar!

Is scrapple off the menu for you too?

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Ha! I am not adventurous enough to try scrapple, regardless of whether or not it's safe for me to eat. ;)

Just to give you more grammer content I be writing this. Forget gluten free and go grain free or Paleo. It is easier and better. Lots of meat and vegetables, few fruits. No near gluten free or might be gluten free foods to deal with.
