Friday Photos: a crazy week in review

Welcome to Friday Photos, a weekly feature here on Celiac in the City — you can read how it all started by clicking HERE.

We started out the birthday celebration last weekend at Roots, one of my top choices in Milwaukee. They get the gluten-free thing, their menu changes each season, never disappointed. (but I do miss the Kobe pot roast — please bring that back) Talk about learning something new everyday — just went to their site to link you to their menu, and they have gluten-free options listed right on the website. I had no clue. Usually I just show up, ask questions, am taken care, life is good. I had no idea I could have the nachos… and they are amazing.**update: the nacho chips might go into the fryer which is NOT gluten-free, will have to investigate this futher!**  So we’ll be going back soon. You should too. We are fans of the Cellar, their downstairs area that leads out to the patio, with one of the best views of the city.

After a night out, with a little too much RumChata, a hearty breakfast was in order. I’m blessed with a husband who, even when sleep deprived, has the energy to whip up breakfast.

My celiac-sister sent me this book, very fitting don’t you think? It came highly recommended by my dear friend, fellow blogger and food allergy advocate, Christi. She wrote about it here, but you can find her over on her new site here. If she recommends something, it’s worth reading. Want a visual? Watch this video for a sneak peek of the book.

I’m off to La Crosse this weekend, to meet up with my best buddies.

We’re celebrating our birthdays with a trip to the children’s museum, swimming until our fingers wrinkle, (and Auntie Sarah tires out) Happy Feet 2, and giggling way past bedtime.

Happy (almost) Birthday, buddy.

  1. I’ve always wanted to try Roots but I never think to go there when I’m in Milwaukee. I’ve heard lots of great things about it. I will definitely need to make a point to go!
