The really good news from our trip is that my mother left some lactose pills on our room while we were up there, and Brian took the plunge and tried them since he was off work. AND THEY WORKED! He's been off gluten and dairy for over a year. Just imagine cooking with no wheat, rye, barley, oats, milk, butter, cheese, or other dairy products and you'll see how great it is to just add half of that back. Ice cream, pudding, crustless cheesecakes, wheat-free pizza, smoothies.... I'm almost as excited as he is.
