GlutenFreeResearch.com went dark on Monday to go out & celebrate the opening of the newest ballpark in America: Target Field. We did our best to find gluten-free options, but it proved to be a bit challenging!
Beautiful Outdoor Ballpark
Amazing Views From the Concourse - you could get a Standing Room Only ticket & really enjoy the game
The Gluten-Free Goods:
Redbridge Gluten-Free Beer & a variety of wines
Angie's Kettle Corn, my fave
Talenti Gelato - YUM!!!!!
Target Field has no gluten-free guide, no list of gluten-free foods, no gluten-free hot dog buns, cookies etc. I am determined to change this, in conjunction with GlutenFreeMSP.com!
A few years back I road-tripped around Italy with my best friend. We showed up in Italy with only a car reservation & a return flight - no hotels, no plans or anything. What an adventure! We stopped to take photos all along the way - in fields of flowers, in tiny little villages and even hit up the leaning tower of Pisa. Eating Gluten Free in Italy, land of amazing bread & pasta was easier than I thought it would be:
At our 1st Gas Station stop I found salami that called out Senza Glutine! I cut this out and brought it along the rest of the trip - it proved to be a lifesaver in communicating gluten free to servers / cooks.
I took advantage of the fresh fruits & vegetables in the little markets, in addition to a LOT of proscuitto, cheese & wine!
Often the beginning of dinner looked like this - my plate was empty, while my best friend enjoyed the bread and pasta dishes to start.
Eventually the delicious main course would come (usually about 2 hours later :-)) and I would enjoy a beef & potato - in this case steak and rosemary olive oil potatoes.
Some restaurants were better than others & had an abundance of Risotto options - YUM!
Finally - there was delicious Gelato EVERYWHERE! We stopped at least 3 times a day.
