Besides not being able to communicate too well, everyone has been fantastic. His family has made a huge effort to make sure I can eat everything. It's pretty great. We haven't eaten out at all, since his mom has been cooking every night for us, except for today when we went to his aunts house, who made stuffed cabbage and then, after we'd eaten all we could, brought out a surprise course of chicken and mashed potatoes (her own chickens, her own potatoes, her own wine) which was fantastic but I was pretty sure I was going to die. The picture I'm posting here is of a soup his mom made, a simple vegetable soup that usually has gluteny dumplings. She found a gluten free flour mix, and used it to make dumplings, so I could eat it. It means a lot to me, as you can imagine if you know anyone who says "oh, it just has a little flour, you can eat it" that they're making such an effort.
Anyway, I'm writing down everything I eat, and posting pictures when I can to my Flickr (flickr.com/jillelise) and will make big updates later on. I just wanted to post this one picture of soup and dumplings because it was so good. Bye!!
