Topics I've Started

Go Picnics At Target

12 November 2014 - 09:00 AM

Many of you may already know this, but I thought some of the newer folks might appreciate the head's up. :)

 

There are several boxes of Go Picnics that are gluten-free and Target sells a wide variety of them.  If you're walking through the store and you notice they're on sale (in my area the regular price is $3.99/box) grab two boxes.  Then go buy them - for some reason buying two will set off the coupon sensor at the register for another set of two.

 

For example, my Target had them at $2.99/box.  So I bought two boxes.  The receipt came out with a coupon for $1.50 off two boxes (which takes the price down to $4.50 for two boxes).  Then you can lather, rinse, repeat the process until you're stocked up.  Because I have kids that can use these like "lunchables" I keep a bunch on hand and generally do thise process about four times in a row.  The cashier usually finds in funny and I have no issue taking an extra ten minutes out of my day to save money.  Yes, I buy them, get my coupon, walk back to get more, buy them, get my coupon, etc.

 

Enjoy!  And make sure you only get the gluten-free boxes - like I said, they aren't all safe gluten-free.


Overthinking The Autumn...

01 September 2014 - 02:51 PM

My husband and I were talking today about our typical Fall activities with the kids - apple picking with the hayride, pumpkin picking with the hayride, climbing the hay bale castle to go through the corn maze, etc. you get the drift.

This is going to be our first Fall dealing with celiac. Is hay a concern? No idea if it's wheat, but I'm in the Midwest so highly likely - we make our wheat cheap and plentiful!

Toaster Bags

Do you have a preferred brand?

I'm curious about the reusable aspect. Keeping them around with gluten on the outside freaks me out. How do you deal with that aspect?

Places To Eat In Atlanta...

17 June 2014 - 01:35 PM

My oldest is going to Celiac camp next month - she's so excited to not have to think about food for a whole week!!

 

I will be driving her to Atlanta and dropping her off the next day.  It's a ten hour drive (no stops) so I'll pack food for the car - we can wing it.  My husband and I will drive out again to pick her up on a Friday and spend that night and all day Saturday in Atlanta then drive home on Sunday.  So, several meals worth of time.

 

Anybody from the area (or traveled there) and can give me some decent places to eat that are safe for my girl?  I'm not sure which area of town we will stay so many options would be great!

 

Thanks!


What Do You Keep At School?

03 February 2014 - 12:27 PM

Do you have a box of treats/rewards/birthday snacks/etc that you keep at school?  I'm trying to think of what to send.

 

I will have a couple of Go Picnics for the nurse to use in an emergency, but the teacher would like something for the unplanned birthday party.  I was thinking of little bags of M&Ms, skittles, and tootsie pops.  Anything else that would work?

 

Our school requires all things to be labeled and get approval from the nurse so I couldn't make brownies/cupcakes/etc to wrap and send for the freezer.  We do have a dedicated gluten-free baker in town, but her cupcakes (as awesome as they are) aren't cheap and I don't think frozen cupcakes are as delicious as M&Ms!
