First and foremost, I will justify this post by declaring that I am a new blogger and I need the practice writing and posting pictures. Many times in my quest to find a new gluten free recipe I scoured the Internet only to find a recipe for a steak or a salad being hailed as gluten free. I always think to myself, wow, a gluten free piece of meat...no way. Gluten free lettuce, get outta here. So here I am, in a twisted hypocritical dilemma. Do I post a picture of our delicious BBQ Pork Chop and Asparagus dinner from last night?......... Sure, why not no one's really reading this anyway, right?
So here it is: Grilled Asparagus with Olive oil, salt, and pepper. Thick cut pork chops with John Henrys Pecan Rub, all lovingly cooked to perfection with my trusty sidekick: Traeger.
I'm a firefighter just outside Portland, Oregon. I met my future wife New Year's Eve 1999. On one of our very first dates, I took her to a nice Italian restaurant in Portland. As she picked at her pasta, I asked her if she was ok. She explained to me she had just been diagnosed with Celiac Sprue and couldn't eat wheat anymore. Little did I know that my journey through Gluten Free cuisine had just begun. Feel Free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
