So what with K working regularly now, our food stamps were reduced. A lot. This was seriously anxiety inducing on my part, because having food in the cupboards is a huge thing for me, cause when I was little there was never enough food (for example, once we ate dandelions and toast for dinner, because there wasn't anything else). The food stamps were kind of a security blanket. I just keep reminding myself that the reason I'm in school and K went to school and all that stuff is to get us off welfare, and this is a step towards that. Doesn't make it any less stressful.

However, today I got all the groceries we need for a week (for a household of eight) for $100, without cutting out extras like K's special coffee creamer or B's chai tea. I. Rock.

For some reason, I can't get PhotoBucket to stop reducing the size of my saved pics, so if you can't read it, you can click this link to see the original-sized pic.

(And if you know how I can tell PB to quit shrinking stuff on me, PM me, willya?)

That's awesome! Not sure how grocery prices compare to here but it sounds like you got some great deals. I love the feeling of a full trolley that costed less than expected.

Well, there are some bargain stores that don't take food stamps so I can't normally go there. It was awesome, though. With food stamps our grocery budget has been about 700/month. If I can keep it to 110/week that'll be 260 dollars a month less that 'I' have been spending.

It turns out that my oldest has a moderate wheat allergy. I've been trying to find meals that we like that are noodle free (easier said than done) and today I bought rice noodles to try with K's homemade alfredo sauce, and it was a hit.

you can get pastas that are wheat/gluten free. the store doesnt usually have a big section so you might need to look around or ask manager, but all major chains carry these nowadays.

gl hope this helps

Why?

But now I want bananas. Or banana bread. Hmmm. I may have to go to the grocery store and see how many overripe bananananananas they have.

And last night's smile/laugh:

We went out to dinner and a movie. She ordered a margarita with her meal, not realizing it would get to her long before the food did, and that she'd essentially had nothing to eat all day. By the time she finished salad, she was buzzed. She stayed that way through the bacon-wrapped scallop appetizers and her steak, and well into the movie.

The movie, btw, was "The Hobbit," which we both greatly enjoyed. I will note, however, those who have *any* issues with vertigo should sit as far back in the theater as possible because some of the more adventurous or battle-filled scenes *will* have your inner ear whirling like a dervish if you're closer to the screen.

I was totally with you on the why... But then I realized it was the slicer and not the pasty yellowed evil itself you were questioning the existence of.

Sigh... This may be your one twuly unforgivable fault, Sir.

Yes, we know. They're nasty. We'd rather not eat.

This webpage, Five Delicious Alternatives to Wheat Pasta, offers some things you could maybe try with him to see if they're acceptable.

Another page I pulled up also suggested
Tinkyada Rice Pasta
If quirky flavors arenít your style, and youíre looking for a gluten-free pasta thatís
virtually indistinguishable from wheat pasta, then the Tinkyada brand is the way to go.
I don't have personal experience with any of them, but since you live a lot closer to a major metropolitan area than I do you might be able to find some or all of them.

Aha, I can see Gracie and Curious have never had "real" bananas. Vine/sun ripened bananas on a tropical island? Those are bananas. The things we get here? Not even close.

So sad.

Tinkyada is actually pretty good compared to other brands I have tried. I made a gluten free lasagna a while ago that was really really good and completely devoured. I didn't precook the noodles and made sure the sauce layers were not soupy so it didn't have enough moisture to get soggy.

Trick to the rice pasta in general is timing the cooking carefully and stopping it from getting mushy. I slightly undercook it and immediately rinse it with tepid water to halt the cooking. Then I only sauce it immediately before serving it because the hot sauces will cook it a bit more if it sits in it. It is just not as durable as wheat pasta... But it can still be really good. The spiral shapes are a bit more forgiving than the regular spaghetti noodles in general.


Thanks for the suggestion, K... But bananas = evil... Period.

For *that* kind of incentive, I'll agree with Curi and forswear bananas. When do we leave?
