Can I have a romantic gluten free dinner for 2 in Calgary during COVID-19? This is my dilemma. Why? Because very shortly I will be celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary and unfortunately I have to change my plans! (Like the rest of the world.) Originally, I was planning a romantic trip through the English countryside but the coronavirus has changed all that and now I’m looking at Plan B ( more like plan G!)
So I’m pondering options such as cooking a romantic dinner at home which I still might do. But…I am also looking at either picking up or getting delivered a special meal from a nice restaurant and not a typical chain. To make it a little more difficult, though, the restaurant has to have gluten free options. Not an easy task! However, after a little research, I have found some options through a great website called www.savourcalgary.ca.
