Ok so eating with variation has never been my strong suit. I grew up in a meat and potatoes family. When I got married, I didn't know how to cook chicken - for realzees, I had no idea. I also didn't have a varied palatte. For example, I didn't know what an avocado tasted like until I was twenty, I didn't know you could make pasta out of anything other than wheat and I thought that a pomegranate was fake, seriously. Working in restaurants and feeding my Trevor and spawn has done wonders for my glossary of foods. I am happy to report that I can cook a variety of chow and I think I am a pretty good cook. I doubt Trev would disagree, he's an intelligent man. My new challenge has been Gluten free cooking. I have struggled to find the right products that act semi normal. Pasta has been a big struggle. I don't care what anyone says but brown rice pasta is craptastic. There is nothing worse then sitting and watching my family dig into a huge spaghetti dinner, twirling and twisting their way through the meal I so lovingly prepared while I sit with a pile of brown snot slathered in sauce on my plate. It's shit, I hate it, don't argue. Please see some of my fave Gluten Free items.
|Best Pasta Ever! Most Gluten Eaters can't tell the difference. A word of caution, it does not last well for the next day (it gets grainy) so eat it right away and the spagetti is a little tough.|
|The closest thing you will ever get to a Ritz. Thats right, let go of the Ritz Crackers, they are dead to you.|
|The best bread crumbs for those who are too lazy to make their own, like me.|
|Ok, I know these look kinda lame, but I will pull you into my cirlce of trust and tell you that these chips are to DIE for. My friend Megan and I polished off a bag in 10 minutes once. She is pregnant and I have no excuse but we still did.|
Who doesn't love pancakes? Maple syrup is Gluten Free already and this is one of the few mixes that doesn't ask for a bunch of different added ingredients.
