Just wondering...

I just bought two bags of pamela's flour mix. I already opened one and used for my baking and pancakes. I am wondering if it would be better if i storage both in airtight tupperware or keep it refridgetor? I jsut would hate to see it go wasted if i am not able to use it up quickly... I am not sure since i saw other posting about flour and starch storage.. but i am curious about the flour mix that is purchased at store like Pamela's..

please let me know thank you!

Anything with Almond meal / flour should be refrigerated once opened if your not going to use it regularly.

I just received a shipment of 6 bags of Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix yesterday (6 - 24 oz. bags). The box says it expires in March 2013 so obviously it does have quite a long shelf life (unopened at least). I only open one bag at a time and have never refrigerated it and haven't had a problem. I keep it in a covered Rubbermaid container in my pantry. Of course, if you have room for it in the fridge, that would be a good option. My fridge holds tons of flour...barely room for other food on some shelves. tongue.gif

I also occasionally buy Bob's Red Mill Almond Meal and I do keep that in the fridge.

Have you used Pamela's before? There's a recipe on their website for banana bread that's really good. Lately I've been baking it as muffins...even more convenient than slicing it. Pamela's is one of my favorite products.

okay, lady...!!

I looked at the recipe (and hey, that's the 2nd time this week you mentioned these muffins for me to see and I think you are trying to get me to pop the zipper on my pants!) :lol:

and I wondered...

if you make the banana bread as muffins, how many do they make and how long do you bake them? Thanks, hunny!!

Hee hee....have I really mentioned them twice this week? laugh.gif Must be because they are so good and that's why I can't breathe in my jeans!

I get 12 regular size muffins from the batter for the banana bread and I bake them for 20 min. (they're usually done at that point but test). I also add chopped nuts to the batter. And for anyone else who's interested, here's the link for the Banana Bread. Lots more recipes on Pamela's site, too.

Hmmm...I may have to make them tomorrow as it's been over a month since my slender 13-year old granddaughter was here and ate 4 of them for breakfast (plus a 2-egg bacon and cheese omelet) and another two later that day. Now if I had her metabolism, I wouldn't have a problem either.

I haven't tried the chocolate chip cookies yet. It does makes good pancakes and waffles, too. And they also freeze well. Be careful with cross-contamination using your friend's kitchen. I use a hand-held mixer for quick breads, muffins, etc. And for muffins you can use the paper baking cup liners in a muffin pan.

It's obvious I need to bake banana-nut muffins today and I just took two very ripe bananas out of the freezer (these are unpeeled) and also have some more frozen that I peeled first and put in plastic containers. I use two good size bananas per recipe and don't measure the bananas any more. And I use sugar instead of honey...just easier not to deal with sticky honey.

I don't think you're going to have a problem with the storage of your baking mix as it won't last long enough to worry about it. laugh.gif

Lucky you!

From all I have heard from members, Disney is GREAT for accomodating gluten-freers! Have a blast!

That IS quite an appetite she has! :blink:

I used to say "My metabolism must be in a coma."

Thanks for the tip--and the link. I may make them this week! :)

I have heard only about visitors to Disney calling ahead and getting special food plans. They take allergies and celiac seriously.

I would call ahead and tell them you will be working there and require gluten free meals. There must be a human resources contact for you to call?

    • Start taking to them now about the seriousness of him staying gluten free. You have to get them past that point of thinking you are being irrational. Send them articles talking about what it's like to be glutened. You've got to make this normal and you have the time now to do it. Be firm.  I've had too many dinners in the past with my husbands family that doesn't care or care to even understand about my issues where they actually told me things were made without flour, but I reacted. Badly. They still don't care but now I just don't believe them, lol. But with a child hopefully they do care and do want to understand. You have to make them realize he is going to SUFFER if he gets glutened. And you don't want your son to hear little snide comments either. You've done a good job normalizing it for him in your environment. Hopefully you will be able to prepare them now so you aren't walking into a war zone then.    
    • You can keep down the clutter by bringing a set of Nordicware microwave cook ware, r roll of butcher/freezer paper (makes gluten-free safe prep area on top of counters, tables, and a nice eating mat) spatula, plastic utensils, and perhaps a small griddle. I normally just do stuff that way and bring at home made muffins, cookies, etc to make myself feel good. I tend to stick to whole food omelettes and the premade stuff I bring to keep it simple and easy. PS the nordic ware has steamer dishes, rice cookers and microwave grill plates so you can cook salmon, rice, steamed veggies chicken all in a microwave.  I did a huge post a few years ago about me hosting my families thanksgiving. I even had instructions on how to make the turkey, and dressing.
    • Good to hear you tapered with your doctors assistance. Many drugs are very dangerous to stop suddenly and not just in terms of the withdrawl.  I tapered off all meds also at diagnosis and have only had to add back in my 'as needed' Alprazolam. I take that for something not celiac related though. Things can be up and down for a bit when we go gluten free. Hang in there.
    • My 13yo son was diagnosed by biopsy in August of this year.    We have not had to travel since he has been diagnosed.   I am concerned with holiday travel coming up.   My husband wants to visit his parents this year for our kids Christmas break but, I'm concerned about my son getting "glutened" while we stay at my in-laws.    I already know that they will think I'm being irrational if I insist on bringing a toaster and cookware for my son's meal prep.   They won't understand about him not being able to use the communal butter dish or serving utensils.   Fortunately, my sister-in-law says that there are gluten-free options at their small grocery store.   But, I'm worried about what to do, say and generally how to handle this.   I don't want to ruin my family's vacation.   I want to show my son that his life doesn't have to stop because he has Celiac.    I want him to still be able to travel and visit his friends and family! Any good advice out there as to how to handle this with my in-laws and how best to ensure my son doesn't get glutened without offending anyone?
