My beer with the band indicating gluten-free
I also left encouraged that good gluten-free bread is an option. I've been on a mission to buy Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef's new cookbook as I've heard they have an excellent bread recipe. Now, I'm extra motivated. We're hoping to shop a bit today in Portland and I'll definitely make a point of ducking into the first bookstore I see.
We had a great time at the game and were so happy to see so many other UK fans in the stands. I'm fairly certain there were more UK fans than Portland fans. Though totally unrelated to food, the sense of community B and I felt at the game was overwhelming. For him, it was like coming home. For me, it felt like being accepted into an important aspect of B's life, not just by him (UK basketball has been an important part of our relationship for awhile now), but by the other fans we met and talked to. It was so amazing to see the support and feel the connection to hundreds of people we've never met. As B's mom has told me on a couple of occasions, "It's just Wildcat love!" It didn't hurt that we won, either.
