Yesterday was our oldest son’s first high school prom. It was an all-county prom held at Fairchild Air Force Base, just outside of Spokane, Washington. Our son, his date, and their friends chose to eat at The Old Spaghetti Factory in Spokane. I was pleased to learn that they have gluten-free offerings on their menu. I haven’t tried them yet, that will be for a later post. My husband and I were the parents in charge of transporting all of the kids to dinner. They met up with friends from a neighboring town and had a party of 18. The poor wait staff.  I am sure they earned their tips. We dropped the kids off for dinner, met up with another set of parents, and walked a couple of blocks to Europa Restaurant and Bakery. They had great service, and even better food! They have an amazing gluten-free, dairy-free pizza crust. It is NOT egg-free! I chose their BBQ Chicken Pizza. They had finely chopped chicken, tomatoes, red onions, and smoked bacon on top of the greatest BBQ sauce. It was just the right combination of tangy and a little kick. I asked them to put some goat cheese on it in place of the cow’s milk mozzarella and that wasn’t a problem. They even went so far as to call the off-duty chef who made the BBQ sauce to make sure there wasn’t any dairy in it. I was feeling like a kid in a candy store while eating that pizza. I couldn’t stop smiling!!! What a great feeling. I wasn’t worried like I usually am when eating out in a new restaurant. I was able to relax and enjoy the food and company. I wish I had thought to take a picture before I started enjoying dinner. You will have to take my word for it. Thank you Europa!!!
