We are having a gluten free guest arriving next March.  Now if you think finding molasses is impossible here, what luck do you think I will have with the flour. 

We have a friend from Canada coming this October, I will ask her to bring some so I have it on hand when she comes.  First person with allergies for us .. besides the PITA family whose little boy had a nut allergy. 

Time to do some brain stretching. Smiling

You can mail order any of those special ingredients off of Amazon and many other sites. Usually cheaper even if you do have a store in town that carries the product.

You can order all sorts of gluten free products on line. Especially since you know in advance. CHeck it out  I have used a number of these Gluten Free Pantry products and they are very good.

Serve em bacon and eggs and don't worry about any gluten.  I don't get it, I had a NO WHEAT PERSON today who ended up with her oatmeal, but had eggs and sausage and fruit.

Some of us (who don't have many rooms or many guests) can accommodate special diets.  Some of us (who have many, many rooms and many more guests than I'll ever see) cannot.  That's what makes us all so special and unique!

I'm at a B&B now... we're attending a wedding tomorrow that we could have driven to, down and back, in one day, but since it's our 20th anniversary next Wednesday we blocked off two nights to get a day off.  Didn't leave until 4:30, and that was after busting my buns to get it done.  When we get back on Tuesday 3 of the 4 rooms are checking in.

Anyway... tomorrow morning's breakfast is at one set time, not very early.  The innkeeper said she's expecting 20 for breakfast.  Needless to say, she does things a LOT differently than I do.  It's been interesting so far!

      Belgian Death Waffles

  • 2 c wheat free, gluten free, baking flour         O.K. (but sound like it might taste yucky)
  • 1⁄2 c cornstarch                                              Corn Allergies
  • 1 t baking powder                                           Can contain corn (see above)
  • 1 t baking soda                                               Can cause severe digestive problems in some individuals
  • 1 t salt                                                             Hypertension anyone?
  • 3 t sugar                                                          Ouch my Diabetes
  • 2 c milk                                                            Lactose Intolerant (Open a window)
  • 2⁄3 c vegetable oil                                           Not all vegetable oil is heart healthy
  • 2 eggs                                                             Egg Allergies (So that's why chickens scratch!)
  • 2 t vanilla                                                         As previously stated, can contain gluten.

BED AND BREAKFAST IN THE YEAR 2025:   Today ladies and gentlemen, for breakfast we shall be having ultra purified water waffles in the "clean room" but don't eat too much; we wouldn't want anyone to get water toxicity buildup.   It will be served at room temperature so no one burns their sensitive little mouths.   All ultraviolet rays have been screened from the room and the air has been irradiated to insure that it is germ free. We want you to know that your health far outweighs our meager profit margin. Remember the good old days when innkeepers tried to kill everyone by poisoning them with wheat flour waffles?  Thank God, for the great B&B purging of 2015.

Like Paula Deen always says, "I'm your cook honey, not your nurse".   Do you folks really want to cater to these individual diets?  As someone said in another topic,  "Here's breakfast, take it or leave it."

I Know , I know! and I am thinking the same thing every time I get this, I am just trying to help out the poor innkepers who do try to accomodate all of this insanity! Plus, you, know, it's another niche, when so many of the inns DON'T offer options.

I just wish they would tell you, you know, before they sit down to breakfast! In those cases, IT IS TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT!

Honestly, I have been serving the alternative stuff to ALL the guests on the days when I have to prepare it (when I have advance notice), and the plate's have been licked clean, so I don't worry about it, and I'm not cooking a bunch of different breakfasts!

If the alternative stuff is tasty, I agree to just serve it to everyone!  Let them eat gluten free!  Let them have low fat!  Whatever it is....

I saw a great sign at my sister-in-law's house last weekend:

Dinner Choices:

Take It

Leave It

I want to have the breakfast version made for our dining rooms.

Made these again this morning, only not gluten free- used 100% whole wheat and Splenda for the type 1 diabetic guest who has to keep her carbs under 75 g per meal...they came out great! So just another variation...

If your guest cannot tolerate cornstarch either, you can substitute tapioca flour or arrowroot flour...

UPDATE: Was told that Vanilla Extract is often made with grain alcohols that are not gluten free, so if in doubt, use vanilla bean.

NOR KOSHER!

Isn't this forum handy for learning all these trivial things that no family member or friend will get a kick out of but us! 

We had the thread a while back about the kosher coca cola which is made from real sugar instead of HRCS.  The same as the Mexican Coke.  Long long story - it is on here somewhere. 

Like my coworker who WOULD not eat a party mix or packet of bagel chips that had worcestershire in the final ingredients as worcestershire has anchovies in the ingred's and as they are scavengers of the ocean, therefore off limits.  YA never know what is in something.  BTW it now has HFCS in the ingreds (wooster-sure sauce)

Vanilla!  Interesting.

Made some wheat free cookies today and the baking mix package also stated that if you are gluten sensitive to check the vanilla...and the chocolate chips...
