I’m back. Oh…how I’ve missed you all. This is the fourth straight year that I’ve gone away to the Virgin Islands with the same group of friends and each year I try to get a blog post or two in while I’m away.
This year…I needed to unplug. Seriously unplug. And it was nothing but awesomeness.
I feel revived. I feel revamped. I feel rejuvenated. I feel the earth move under my feet. I feel the need…the need for speed. I feel I’ve taken this too far.
Anyway, my point is I’m a new man and I’m ready to bring tons of gluten free awesomeness to you all in 2015 if you’re willing to continue to hang with me.
Now…about that vacation I just took. We had our own private chef that was relatively new to the gluten free world of cooking so there was naturally a bit of trepidation heading down there. I brought a suitcase full of backup food just in case.
Guess what? I did not eat one single item I brought with me. Not a one. That’s how amazing Chef Mathayom was. You pronounce his last name mah-tai-yum. Yeah…as in yummy.
If you can swing it, a private chef is the way to go if you’re on vacation. You only deal with the one person all week so there is no explaining our special needs to a different restaurant each night. It is such peace of mind…and that’s what vacations are all about. And if you go in with a bunch of people, it’s comparable in price to eating out each night. Just a thought.
As I tend to do, let’s take a peak back at my week in gluten free paradise in pictures, shall we?
