I loved The Hunger Games! Both the books and the movie.

I would like to see the new Total Recall movie. I love science fiction.

Could it be keratosis pilaris? I have this problem, it has caused me great embarrassment before I knew what it was.

In Topic: Need To Eat Gluten Free But Cant Afford It

There are lots of inexpensive meals that are gluten free, you just have to change your way of thinking. It takes a bit of adjustment but it gets easier. One great inexpensive meal is homemade chicken and rice soup with veggies like onions, carrots, celery, potatoes, these area all inexpensive and are great in soup. Corn tortillas are a great inexpensive addition to your staples. You can make tacos and enchiladas, even tostadas very inexpensively. I have had one loaf of gluten free bread in a little over a year since I have been gluten free-I am on a budget too and at first I didn't know what to eat but now it is second nature. My son is not gluten free so I buy him bread for sandwiches, plus waffles and other things, but I just carefully segregate things in the kitchen.

In Topic: Regarding Groceries And $$....

One thing I do to save money on grocery bills is to pretty much only buy what is on sale. If chicken legs are on sale, that is what we are having. If broccoli is on sale, that is our veggie. You get the idea. I plan my meals around sales and inexpensive meal plans. And I don't eat bread except as a very rare treat, I am too cheap to spend that much on it. I quickly learned to plan meals without it. Instead of sandwiches I have rice cakes with various toppings. Corn tortillas are very versatile. if you can invest in a good deep freeze then you can really find some great deals and stock up. Also, soups are a great way to save money, because you use less meat. just cut it in very small pieces and add lentils for protein. I have also found some inexpensive gluten free crackers.

In Topic: How Do You Afford It?

It is an adjustment. Plus learning a new way of shopping. One thing that I haven't seen mentioned is rice cakes. I love them with mayo and sliced meat, with a bit of lettuce and tomato as well. Where I am, rice cakes are super cheap when on sale. I second the rice and beans, along with corn tortillas. Mexican food can be very inexpensive if you like it. The main way I save money on food is to shop the sales. Most of the things I buy are on sale. If chicken legs are on sale, that's what we are having this week, etc.

I don't know anything about pet food. Why is that necessary? If it is because you are "touching" it, you can find a big box of plastic gloves at the 99 cent store that you could use when handling their food. Wouldn't it be OK as long as you had separate dishes and utensils?

I didn't replace many of my dishes, or pots and pans. But I don't like non stick cookware, so I was OK there. The only thing I replaced was my colander and wooden spoons.

I am sorry you are having a hard time. We all have those days sometimes. I hope it gets better!
