Brooks updates us on the gluten-free front!
I am a very self-centered person. Vanity can come with consequences, like bumping into things while staring at myself in reflective objects. But it also means that things that might seem like creepy coincidences to others make perfect sense to me. The very same day I go gluten-free, the New York Times is touting the evils of carbs, restaurants everywhere are creating whole gluten-free sections in their menus, and the grocery store aisles seem to open their arms to me (“Gluten Free!”, “Now with no wheat products!” “GF Friendly”). I feel less of an experiment in fringe dietary restrictions than a culinary zeitgeist. And why shouldn’t I, the world is mine.
“But Brooks, is it possible that you are seeing these things only now because you are looking for them?” Pish Posh.
So, since the whole world has clearly decided Dave and Brooks are gluten-free and it’s time to follow suit, how has our week been going? Other than exhausted, which is partly the move and partly the lack of slow burning fuel (carbs!), we’ve been great! Dave and I moved into our new apartment which we love. The primary feature of this space which will most change our lives is the kitchen. It is spacious, comfortable, and fun to cook in. In many ways we fell in love cooking dinners together as friends and are looking forward to getting back to that aspect of our relationship. It also means getting us away from eating out, which we have discovered is the DEVIL.
