|gluten-free party circa 1975 that's me on the far right.|
This is my seventh birthday party. Back in the day, being celiac on your birthday meant that you were special in more ways than one. Your hot dog was "special" your bun was "special" and your cake - was "special"... meaning gluten free (and often funny looking). Mum got full marks for pulling it off.
Nowadays... a full on gluten-free birthday party could be thrown without comment. You can find gf versions of pretty much everything - and if you don't mind the expense... every kid can eat what the "special" kid is having.
Today marks my 44th birthday... and everyone celebrating with me will be "having what I'm having". Times most certainly have changed!!
