    • And now for some Scotland photos.
      1st of course, the food...
      (these photos MAY explain my 5 lb weight gain even though we walked TONS everyday. That, or the fact that our walks inevitably detoured into a pub or two. One day, on our 15 min walk "home", we stopped in two)

      I sent this one to Surfer Son. Told him I had minnows for lunch (He runs a bait shop)



      My Farmer had a meatpie:



      A couple of the many chicken dishes I had:





      I finally protested chicken, and went in search of anything else...

      • Well, there was more than just chicken on this salad:



        Bacon kilted haddock:



        Scotch Egg (I scooped out the egg and meat)



        Of course we had to stop here for lunch one day:



        They gave me my pulled pork in a cup

        • More food:

          My BIL buying paella:



          A massive pan of potatoes (we didn't eat them)




          Of course there were desserts:

          Meringue:




          Started to eat this before I remembered to take a photo. It was the wedding dessert.
          The wedding had a Lego theme. Yes, a Lego theme:

          • Near the end of our trip, we were sitting in a pub talking to the bartender (who happened to be from PEI). We asked her if she could recommend a good Indian place. She did



            We went there twice. It was a BYOB, no corkage fee.



            I had an AWESOME dessert. I had it both times we were there. It was SO good, I forgot to take a photo...Gluten free too



            It was the Homemade Gulab Jamun. The owner brought it over to me the 1st night and told me that if I didn't like it, it would be free. 3 of us shared it. I wanted to lick the plate! The owner still never charged us for it. As we left, we reserved a spot again for our last night in Scotland. That night I ordered my own!

            • We stayed in a furnished apartment that was just around the corner from my niece (the one who's wedding we went to).

              This was my breakfast:



              Everyday.
              That's Creme Fraiche.

              And of course, Haggis.
              Suse, here's a fancy restaurant's version of Haggis, Neeps and Tatties:

                        Neeps are turnips

                        According to a few Scots, it wasn't TRUE Haggis. Evidently they aren't allowed to use the brains anymore...

                        It tastes like ground lamb - which it probably was...

                        • I've heard they put lungs in the traditional haggis, too. Just in case you were wondering...

                              • Yeah, sorry, I took some time off for the summer.

                                Today is my " official " 3rd year Primal anniversary.

                                Still wheat free. Possibly too much wine and sugar.

                                Are you surprised?

                                Lets see, what's changed since I started...
                                Hay fever gone (for that alone I'll stay grain free)
                                Pimply rash on arms GONE!

                                I still weigh in the lower 140's

                                But, for some reason, in the last 6 months my mom, dad, sister and niece have all gone gluten free!
                                Not grain free. But it's a start. Of course they. Are finding all kings of substitutes....

                                What else...I moved my baby girl into university residence yesterday.
                                Tuesday I start a full time high school teaching job
