A Day in DC

Gluten Free in DC

Yesterday we spent the day in DC and had lunch at Austin Grill.  They have a gluten free menu and delicious food.  Abby said the hot dog and fries were the meal of her dreams.

Sticky Fingers Bakery has gluten free vegan cupcakes and chocolate chip cookies.  This was our last stop of the day and they only had four cupcakes left.  All of them came home with me!  Many thanks to my husband for braving DC traffic and taking 20 minutes to go six miles, so that I was able to buy those cupcakes.
