In Topic: Gluten Free Tea

16 July 2008 - 06:44 PM

I guess I never really thought about tea being gluten free or not. I use Luzianne tea bags at home and brew my own tea.

However, I do buy the sweetened at Sonic and McDonald's quite often. Are these possibly not gluten free? I don't buy the flavored ones just plain sweetened tea.

Now you have me curious too. We've been using great value tea bags and buying mcd's sweet tea and my gluten-free stepdaughter hasn't complained so I am assuming that they are ok.

In Topic: Cheese Sauce For Enchiladas

This is a real Mexican Enchilada Sauce
Yellow Rose

Thanks for the recipe. I saved it and plan on trying it on our next menu. I make my own non-traditional version of enchiladas and will have to modify it anyway, so I think instead of modifying that, I am just going to find a new one that is gluten-free we can enjoy... this might be it!

In Topic: Taco Bell

Thanks for all the replies. Looks to me like based on the list TB provides she can "safely" have tostadas or the beans and cheese. Many of the local TB's near us don't even have tostadas anymore... and as far as we are concerned it is now off limits. I even showed their information to my stepdaughter so she could see for herself. She always got a #8 which is 3 tacos... well, after talking some time to her, she did say sometimes she felt sick afterwards but thought it was just from eating too much. We all prefer homemade tacos to TB anyway.

I am surprised the meat has gluten in it, as my stepdaughter supposedly did research and found that the tacos are safe to eat and has eaten them. In fact, she ate them on her way to our house and hasn't seemed to have any adverse reaction that I am aware of. I kind of wondered though because my husband LOVES the TB meat seasoning packets in the store and said we can't use them because of the gluten. Hmmmm...

PS I have been to their site, which is why I asked... wanted to know if I had missed something.

In Topic: Not Taking It As Seriously?

I don't think you need to worry about steam. Yeah splashes can happen but steam would be just water I would think. It's not like the pasta vaporises! :lol:

But do take care, if you cook gluten-free and gluten foods at the same time it's terribly easy to forget and stir with the same spoon by accident. You need to have some sort of routine for that.

gluten-free pasta is of course a bit pricier. Otherwise I'd keep as much of the evening meals completely gluten free as possible. It's just less work, and most things are just as easy to make gluten free as not.


We eat pasta at least once a week, because it is cheap and easy to make and just an all around simple meal for us. It isn't that big of a deal to make her's separate, esp since she eats so little of it.
