    Naiad,

    I'd second the salad idea. If you're getting interviewed, you probably won't feel like eating much anyway...
    Salads give you the option of pushing stuff around, and picking out the good stuff

    I don't even know if salad'll be an option. If it is, I will, but Andrews is large town Texas. As in less than 15,000 people.

    Congrats on the success of the interview! As for the lunch meeting, I second Meat's idea of letting them know you are gluten-intolerant, or tell them you have Celiac's disease

    If that doesn't work, eat something before you go and then choose something small on the menu that won't be too bad (if you can!). I know how West TX restaurants can be, especially in the towns.

    Good luck!

    hey NK good for you on the interview.
    However watch out for anything resembling the movie "The Firm".

    Tell them you're gluten intolerant. And Mark's war on potatoes is over so it's not that bad :P
    I'm sure you can find something on the menu.

    So, in my exploration into the world of nondairy ice cream, I found this. I'm afraid of how much I'd eat if I made this, but it's soooo tempting. Especially once I replace the agave with honey.

    I strongly recommend against this option.

    No long order

    Do I just bite the bullet and eat nonprimal?
    Yup. Just do the best you can from what's on the menu.

    Do I make it look like I'm finicky
    Nooooo way.

    Do I get the non primal option and disembowel it to make it primal?
    Noooo way.

    I'd really really recommend just showing up and ordering something reasonable and just doing the best you can with it. Don't look picky with the ordering, don't be picky with the food on the plate. Just take care of business.

    I'm reasonably certain that I should be able to find SOMETHING. I had already decided against the long or finicky order, and had decided to just find the best I could at whatever restaurant they decide on. Even if I hafta leave the PB for one meal, it won't hurt me. I didn't like the idea of being so finicky as to shoot down the preferred restaurant, because that looks bad. I'm trying to look fairly easy going (I usu am) and that doesn't work if I'm shotting down restaurants because they aren't PB friendly.

    2:30 this morning: 1/2" cube aged sharp kerrygold cheddar. Apparently, that's still no good, 'cause I'm hocking up a lungful of gunk.
    Dinner: 10 oz ribeye, 4 cheddar cheese fries, 1 caesar salad (only 2 tbsp the soybean caesar dressing, as opposed to them putting on the dressing), 1/2 sweet potato, 6 tbsp whipped cinnamon butter.

    You'll do great, most restaurants you can find something reasonable on the menu, and one meal won't matter to much.
