Made a massive twat of myself tonight. Went out for dinner and ordered a pasta dish. Normally it comes as linguine but they can make a gluten-free version using gluten-free penne. So my dish comes out and after taking a few bites, I notice what looks like bits of linguine in it. I pick out and when the waiter comes to check if everything is ok, I ask about the stringy bits. They assured me it was most definitely onion. It was. They were very nice about it and didn't answer in a huffy was like sometimes happens but I still felt Like a tit for thinking it was gluten pasta.

I think that some of the Crabbies ones are and are labeled so. Haven't had them for a awhile though so it may not be gluten-free anymore. There is also a brand who's name I can't think of but it has a dragon on the label. Just check the packaging though as I think only certain ones are. It's also really expensive- around $9 for 500ml bottle.

Some of Weis ones used to be and were labeled so- I haven't looked for ages so not sure if they still are. Blue Ribbon used to have some that were ok- not lableled gluten-free but were ok by ingredient-but this was about seven years ago. I'm not sure if it's just me, but unlike most things I find it harder to buy icecream than a few years ago. Coles do a very strange thing with their own brand and in the contains section it will state: Contains Wheat Glucose syrup (gluten) I recently found some of their own version magnum things that were ok, I THINK it was the maple ones. I think some magnums are ok- again not labeled gluten-free but they are ok by ingredient and have no shared equipment statement.

I'm sure everyone knows this already but it's my favourite so I'll post it anyway, 

Tomatoes ( I always use the big ones but it is just personal taste.)

Red onion




Lime Juice


Basically cut up the tomatoes into small pieces and then dice the onion and chop coriander. Mix them in a bowl with the other ingredients and a bit of olive oil. Sometimes I use lemon juice instead of lime or add a bit of crushed garlic. 

No real quantities of each it depends on personal taste, I always add loads of coriander but that might not be to everyones taste. 

Also it can be fairly watery but if you don't use the tomato pulp it is a bit "drier"
