Aquarium trip

We went to the Monterey Aquarium on monday. The trip is worth noting for two things.

1. At one point in the afternoon, I was literally dead on my feet. Joe finally found me and asked how I was doing. My response, "I'm dealing with being glutened yesterday, I have a headache, I'm hungry, and I'm out of spoons." Getting Glutened REALLY reduces my number of spoons drastically. Most days I don't worry about it.

2. We had lunch at the Portola Cafe which is inside the aquarium. You have a choice of a self-serve cafeteria style or a sit down restaurant. In the essence of speed we went the cafeteria route. I chose the Mexican Station, as it tends to be VERY safe for me to eat. As I explained to the chef behind the counter that I needed non-gluten containing stuff on my fish, he decided that the best way to keep me safe was to go back into the main kitchen, cut up some fresh fish just for me. Cook it in front of me in clean pans and made me a special dish. How cool is that? And yes I did sing his praises, with his name no less, not only to the general manager and then to the Executive Chef when he came around. It was really nice to get treatment like that.
