We're still waiting the results to see if she has celiac as well...keep a good thought for our family! At least it has cooled off, no more 100+ days! THANK GOODNESS!

Movie Review: The Island

I loved it! I like suspense/sci-fi. Very interesting plot twists: creating clones to harvest organs for the rich clients of an insurance company. It reminded me a little of The Matrix, or Total Recall. Anyways, if you like the thriller suspense movies then it's great. It wasn't as violent as The War of the Worlds. My husband didn't like it at all...he ended up taking the baby and walking...

1st Gfg Meeting.

I went to my 1st Gluten-free-group meeting yesterday and I met the nicest bunch of folks! We had the bakers from one of the local gluten-free baked-goods lines come in and show their wears. YUMMY! Those little pecan cakes were really good. And someone came up with the cutest name~Winkies~ Guess what those were? Yuuuumm! I got some doughnuts and shoved them in the freezer for later! I'm...

Called Fry's...beans

They had me speak to a nutritionist...she said that all of their canned veggies are gluten-free, except that the canned beans were made on the same line as their baked beans which are not gluten-free, so the canned beans could have gluten in them. Just a heads up, I wonder if this is true for the other brands of canned beans?

Found A House

We went to an open house today and we really like it. Well, it's a town home. But for first-time buyers it's what we could afford. The owner is in a contract right now and thinks that it is going to fall through. If that's the case, then she's looking for additional buyers. It'd be awesome if it all works out. We're veterans so we have some paperwork to start doing. How exciting!Went to...

I Love Blue Bunny

I have to say that they have the best ice cream in these parts... I got 6 half gallons of different flavors (they were on sale and I had coupons = $1 each, yipee!) All week I've been sampling and enjoying myself. Who needs to go to Baskin Robbins and risk getting glutened?? AZ in the summer isn't all that bad after all.~cheers

Not Much Of A Market W/ Used Gf Cookbooks

Today I went to one of our huge resale book shops. You bring in your books and magazines and can trade them for credit. All of their inventory is used...there are about 5 of them around the Phoenix valley area. So, I went looking for gluten-free cookbooks. As I was browsing I realized that there aren't going to be many gluten-free used cookbooks because A.) being a Celiac is for life so you...

Now I'm A Believer...

Bargain Hunting!

Yesterday was a great day! I was exiting the grocery store and they had a grocery cart out with discounted items. In it were about 8 boxes of 1lb boxes of sweet rice flour! Wow, how lucky am I? That's .50 cheaper than at the Asian market. The funny thing is that 2 weeks ago I wouldn't have known what to do with sweet rice flour.Now that I know what to look for, I hope that I can find more...

So tomorrow night is corned beef night. Stick it in the crock pot in the morning, get back from work and...

1st Store Trip, 6 Bucks For Bread?!?

Yesterday was my first trip to the store since being diagnosed. I need some quick foods for certain days of the week. While I love cooking, it's just not always practical to make every meal of every day...besides, I really wanted a bowl of cereal for breakfast instead of egg tacos. Trader Joe's has an okay selection of gluten-free Indian entrees, expensive, and I've never tried them, but hey...

Starting From The Beginning

I'm the lucky one in this crowd, no doubt about it. I had a baby and after three month of diarrhea the Dr. quickly diagnosed me as being allergic to gluten...that was 5 days ago. 3 months of suffering sounds like nothing compared to the other stories out there....I have some liver damage, but that will heal with time! Where do I go from here? Well, I feel incredible. 5 days sans gluten has...
