Gluten Free for ME! The Whole Kitchen!
It has been quite a while since I last posted. For a variety of reasons I've cut back on posting and I don't like the way it feels. I hope that my postings are enjoyable and easy to read. It seems like I don't get a lot of feedback via "comments." I want to fix it and would love some feedback, good or bad, from my celiac community.
As for my life, well, last weekend's wedding (Ellen, of www.iamglutenfree.blogspot.com)was glorious. The four sisters were together and it felt so good. There is truly nothing like family! Ellen looked absolutely stunning. My other sisters and I agreed that we don't know when she looked so gorgeous. I love this picture of us. People think that WE are the twins!(I do have a fraternal twin sister, no celiac) She arranged it so that at the rehearsal dinner AND the wedding reception, gluten-free meals were provided for three of us. Just a feel-good weekend in New England!
Regarding my kitchen, it's time to take another plunge. Yep. We are going gluten-free! Not just the small pantry but "the whole shabang." I consulted my husband and he agreed, that it is in my best interest to do this. I researched and found affordable CIRCULON INFINITE cookware at Macys.com. There are 3 bonus pieces that are wonderful also. All totaled, I'll have 15 pieces, including 5-6 lids. I will be tossing out EVERYTHING from the "other" pantry that contains gluten. Let me not exagerate. We're talking about cereals, breads, crackers, flours. There are so many other things in the pantry that pour (and so have not had cross-contact)so I don't mean empty the pantry, just rid it of GLUTEN. I am really excited about it and hopefully, my family will embrace it with me. My daughter in college paused when I told her. She may not be happy but I will be healthy.
Your suggestions on both counts: what part of my kitchen would you toss other than obvious...wooden everything that has had contact with gluten and teflon pans. AND, how can I increase traffic with my blog???
I wish you all well and hope that your Thanksgiving is a bountiful one, flowing with yummy gf food. Take care...
