The Last Time We Spoke

Hee-haw !

We’re back from outerspace, what’s that I see, that look upon your face?

You what? You thought we had given up? Had abandened this mortal coil whoist not so kind to the ubiqitous gluten protein !!!

Ahh, yes that is true… The last time we spoke it was of death and holidays. My poor dears, we did not intend to alarm nor induce fear….

Oh yes… Of course we will redouble our effort to dispatch more frequent posts.

Yes Sir. Sorry Sir…. I mean Ma’am. I mean Supreme Feeder. We will report. We will report….

Ahh, no Ma’am. We do not necessarily need a Federal holiday to find the time to post (but it sure does HELP). Oh the things we’ve seen….and eatin’.

Traveling to the Great Gluten Free Spaceship in the Sky.

theoneslide

Well, it has been a spell since I posted. Been on a GF coma cruise. Have you heard about the above campaign? They want us to talk about this important stuff at Thanksgiving: “Hey pass the Gluten Free stuffing and have you considered where you want to die?”

I love the idea. What better time could there be to talk about stuff that most people don’t want to talk about than on a day that is absolutely a powderkeg of potential familial smolderings with cranberry on top, is it Gluten Free?

For the Gluten Free Riders this campaign would make more sense around Halloween. Dont’ ya think? Like, good old Samhain is all about talkin’ with the departed and such whilst powered by a sugar high. Muuuch better death-talkin’ climate, I’m just sayin’….but don’t let me stop you from tryin’ to broach this subject whilst you are re-explaining why you won’t be eating the pumpkin pie nor the haggis.

Here is a place where you can get your bits in order before you slip into that tryptophan stupor.

Jimmy My Ice Cream

That’s what they call sprinkles or chocolatey topping bits around the Boston area and other parts of New England: Jimmies.

You can’t count on all Jimmies being GF, I have come across ones that use wheat as an ingredient.

Though I have heard more than a few people say the Jimmies are made of wax, I have never seen one that actually contained wax…

These ones are made in Germany. I paid something crazy like $2.10 at a local supermarket’s “health” aisle for an ounce. Thats about enough for a couple of dishes of ice cream, where I come from…

Their consistency is a bit “crunchier” than your average jimmy, found at your average ice cream parlor. They have more of a cocoa taste than other jimmies. And as far as size goes these jimmies are quite thin but a few millimeters up from a dimension that I would regard as hairy (and yes I have had hairy jimmies (they don’t tickle a bit) and they are quite appealing as they melt as opposed to crunch or squish as do some of the too big jimmies).

I want Ice Cream, now.

8te: Whipped Cream

A squirt on waffles

Another squirt on pancakes

Oh, and a spot on the black coffee

How about a dollop on my GF finger

Now, I agree that fresh made whipped cream is the best but I’m just sayin’ that a can of whipped cream will transform a GF meal, snack or drink quickly, sonicaly and happily. It’s rocket science!

We really like tooling around on this Federation Item. We got one in the mail yesterday and it looks as good as this picture. Hop on over to our new store and check out the Bling

Trader Joe’s Has GF Cargo

A couple of days ago I posted about Trader’s GF pancakes but maybe you are not familiar with Trader Joe’s? There are a number of locations in my neck of the woods. You may have to take a drive to one near you but it would be worth it if you are looking for lots of GF frozen and other foods. We regularly by lots of their stuff and toss it in the Federation deep freeze…

Here is their map of locations and such.

And here be their extensive list of No Gluten Product.

8te: Trader Joe’s Pancakes

I enjoy these Gluten Free frozen pancakes a lot. I could eat them by the box load. It seems others enjoy too as it is hard to get a hold of ’em. They seem to sell out tre quick.

Right, I find that the best way to cook em is zap em for the recommended amount then put them in the toaster oven thing. They are real fleshy out of the mic. so there isn’t much chance of ’em standing up in a vertical toaster…
