Date plus Sandwich equals HOLLA

A couple of weeks ago, Mr. Rose and I had an impromptu date.

A REAL LIVE DATE!

When raising a child with diabetes, it feels like dates are few and far between. So, when he was furloughed on the first day of preschool for our youngest daughters, we jumped at the opportunity to go to lunch.

Alone. 
As in - sans children. 
Quiet. 
Just the two of us.
One-on-one time.

Get it?

WOOT WOOT!

It felt so strange....strange to have everyone in school combined with the rare opportunity to have a lunch date on a Monday.

We headed to Jason's Deli -- one of our family's favorite dining spots. They have an awesome salad bar that all 5 of us LOVE.  We heard they recently rolled out their gluten free menu and wanted to check it out.  I was fully expecting my usual: a fresh salad with a variety of dressing options.  I didn't expect, however, to see this...

Excitement doesn't quite describe my reaction!  After learning that the bread offered was UDI'S, I was pretty sure we had struck gold on the furlough day!  Not only is it Udi's, but they offer a NORMAL sized slice of bread.  Anyone familiar with GF bread, knows that the slices you buy from the freezer section at the store are pretty small.  Well, my half sandwich (to accompany my fresh salad with an array of GF dressings to choose from) was normal!
 NORMAL, PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Which one is the GLUTEN FREE egg salad sandwich?

THIS ONE IS GLUTEN FREE!!!
 And that, my friends, is something to shout from the top of Blog Mountain!!!
