Once in a while I hear about and even get to meet homeschool families who travel around the country for months at a time. There was one family on the move that was filmed for a show on the Discovery channel, but I only heard about it after it aired. Did you catch it? But one big difference, I can only assume, between those families and mine, is diet. Feeding a family with food restrictions while traveling can feel a little daunting, am I right?
Today Andrew took off from working for a few hours because it was positively glorious out, so we could go to Boulder. We went to probably our favorite place to eat, and definitely where we eat out most frequently: Pei Wei. Oh, how I adore this place. The portions are big, so you have leftovers and you get to eat twice for what is already a great price, and of course, the most crutial point: they have a gluten-free menu!
Zoe is so funny. She doesn't say Pei Wei, she says "the place with the red guy on the door." My girl Jean (honey - please correct me if I'm spelling your name wrong!), who was at the Broomfield Pei Wei when we lived down there, is now at the Boulder Pei Wei (that's at the 29th street mall), and we couldn't be happier. Say "hi" for me when you meet her, you'll love her! And ask her to make you the lettuce wraps gluten-free. They aren't on the GF menu, but they will do it for you if you ask. They just have to leave off the sauce, but they are still delicious. I wish I had a picture of them to show you.
So I was just looking at the Pei Wei website, and noticing how many are popping up across the country, and don't think I'm not considering a road trip now too!
