Cos I'm a follower

G'day all!

Everyone else is doing this, so why not me? I have some medical limitations to the sorts of foods I can have but if there is a GF/DF version I either have eaten it or would eat it, mostly. Except maybe not fugu and certainly not coffee and I'm not keen on bleeding meat either. So I'll put a GF/DF next to it if I am willing to give it a go in a form that won't give me problems for days!

1. Venison
2. Nettle tea
3. Huevos rancheros - it's just eggs and stuff - looks yummy when DH has it. GF/DF
4. Steak tartare ARGH! Raw meat! NO WAY! Can't stand bleeding meat.
5. Crocodile

6. Black pudding
7. Cheese fondue
8. Carp
9. Borscht
10. Baba ghanoush

11. Calamari
12. Pho (not too keen on raw meat but the soup should cook it a bit)
13. PB&J sandwich (GF and DF though)
14. Aloo gobi

21. Heirloom tomatoes

28. Oysters
29. Baklava (Both Greek and Persian)
30. Bagna cauda GF/DF even if the garlic half kills me.

31. Wasabi peas
32. Clam chowder in a sourdough bowl - would if I could! GF/DF
33. Salted lassi GF/DF

37. Clotted cream tea - GF/DF, may be hard to arrange
38. Vodka jelly
39. Gumbo- GF/DF
40. Oxtail

41. Curried goat - GF/DF

77. Hostess Fruit Pie - GF/DF

Golly, that is only 28 out of a hundred! And I started off so well too... Of course I could've had about another 30-40 if I was able to have dairy and gluten cos I've had the opportunity, but really? The aftermath is just not worthwhile, no matter what anyone says!

Gosh it feels better to get this meme done so I can go back to being an individual again...

  1. Speaking of gluten free - have you been into a Trader Joe's? Whenever I see that stuff I think of you. Thankfully, there is more and more of it out there, but I always think what a difficult thing that would be to live with. TJ's carries an exceptionally large selection of affordable GF foods. Whole Foods carries a fair bit too of course, but not always so cost effective.
