Topics I've Started

Gluten Free Pancakes At Aldi!

10 May 2013 - 11:52 AM

We were at Aldi yesterday and noticed something new in the freezer section. They (or at least my store) are now carrying SimplyNature Gluten Free Pancakes. Needless to say, I was VERY excited about seeing these, since I'd never seen anything like this at Aldi before. A box has 12 silver dollar size pancakes, and I think they were about $2.89. So, we got some, and I couldn't wait to try them--pancakes aren't something we've had a lot of success making. There's instructions on the box for microwaving or heating in the oven. I microwaved mine and they were amazing. Maybe slightly rubbery, but once I put butter and syrup on them it was good.

Note: these aren't certified gluten free, but they at least didn't have any warnings about being processed with wheat.

Then we went to Walmart and found gluten-free chicken strips (Purdue, I think). Got home and saw the news about Pillsbury's gluten free stuff. I love days like that! :)

Ideas For Salads?

20 September 2012 - 03:06 PM

We've been on a salad kick lately. My sister-in-law introduced us to the concept of putting peppers and onions on our salad, which we really like. Tonight we're having romaine, spinach, pepper, onion, and cucumber salad.
But I'd really like some new ideas for lettuce salads. I finally have my mom eating vegetables, and I'm afraid we'll get tired of the same salad all the time.
Ideas, please? And I'd love salad dressing recipes if you have them.
Thanks! :)

Walmart's Produce

06 July 2012 - 09:31 AM

I was at Walmart in the produce section, and I noticed they have a little sign on the apples and other fruits that said something about them being coated with food-grade vegetable wax. I know 'vegetable' can be a code word for wheat sometimes. I bought some plums, figuring I'd be safe just washing them off good. Then I ate one for supper last night, and today I'm headachey like I've had gluten. The plum was the only thing I ate that's a possibility for gluten.
The sign did say that you could ask a manager for more information, but I didn't bother.
I was just wondering if any of you have had the same problem? Have you asked a manager about it? And if it is made from wheat, is there some way to get the waxy stuff off of it?

Thanks in advance. :)
