I used this stuff tonight and was pretty stoked at how easy to handle it made the gluten free dough.

I get a little tired at trying to make gluten free bread wrap around a hotdog. And this isn't the first time I've tried this particular method of wrapping a hotdog. But unlike the last time, the biscuit dough stayed on while I consumed it. It's pretty simple, I make GF biscuit dough, add the gluten substitute, then roll out a ball of the dough, flatten it between my palms, wrap it aroung a hotdog, bake it until golden at 400 and there you have it, GF junk food, yay!

And the best part is the additive was free. The clerk at Whole Foods marked a box as a sample for me to try. I had no idea that they have this practice! After the fiasco with the Pamela's Products, I was shopping there considerable less than before. But with this and with just how much the gluten free aisle has expanded in recent months (I think there were many of us squeaky wheels!) I might just keep them on my shopping route more often.

Work has been interesting in that I seem to be getting noticed by management more. And not in a bad way! Don't think the notice translates into more money for me, but I suppose if my business practices result in more money for the company, then that's job security for me. Always an important thing these days! Especially in retail, when you're 46. :P

The weather has gotten warmer, so that means that all the nuts who've been hiding away have crawled into my store to make their crazy declarations. For example; "they don't want us to have books about nudist camps, they think we're perverts!" Or "I saw this book talked about on the Jon Stewart show, it's about a plane that crashed in the Andes, and they all escape, but it's not about those rugby players!" Ya know, I'm thinking if it was on the Jon Stewart show it might possibly been some kind of joke or skit! I still don't know, although I suppose I could Google it. *shrugs*
Tonight's visit included gluten free chocolate chip cookies. The brand is Pamelas and they are OMG so good I want to have this cookie bag's babies. I also have a belly full of gluten free bread. Yummy stuff, I made it in the bread machine so it has a full half cup of butter in it. It smelled obscenely good whilst it was baking. The only mistake I made was wolfing down a bologna sammich when we got back from the store. Tres stupid, it has modified food starch in it and I felt the effects start as I finished it off. That's when I ran to read the container. Still learning to read first, I suppose. *sigh*

I wish I could bottle the smells in Whole Foods. Makes me want to throw myself over the counter at the hot line and just grab handfuls of everything. It's harder to control myself in there than in the regular grocery store. Probably because my visits are so infrequent I have to make the most of them.

I also can't justify the cost of buying anything there that I could get at my regular stores. Even if that stuff's fresher and usually better quality. Going gluten free isn't cheap and I can't indulge myself like I used to.

Anyway, the best thing about having this place where I can get these fantastic cookies (other than actually getting the fantastic cookies) is knowing that I don't have to feel so desperate when I walk into Brookside Market and past their bakery section. I mean, yes, I likely won't find a recipe that makes flaky croissants, but getting white bread after so much denial is priceless to me. :)
