it's sunday evening. mama's had her shower, trimmed her toenails and my claws. the last load of laundry is in the washer. the kitchen is clean. it must be almost monday.
mama's going to make turkey taco meat tonight so she can take stuff for lunch this week. part of the frugality plan (as long as she doesn't skimp on our temptations!). she's also got left-over chicken curry.
do you have trader joe's where you live? they sell little packets of lavender to use in the dryer instead of a commercially scented dryer softie. mama likes to use those with the bedding. the scent lasts for nearly a week. mmm.
trader joe's also sells a bunch of other really great things that we almost always have in our house: corn salsa, pineapple salsa, curry simmer sauce--no wheat!, frozen fruit--inexpensive!, fresh mozzarella, thai rice sticks. for a person with celiac disease, they have some good stuff at reasonable prices, although labels still require careful perusal. you'd be surprised at some of the stuff that has wheat/oats/barley/rye! almost anything that's thickened uses some form of gluten-containing product. soy sauce has wheat (wheat-free tamari is an excellent substitute). white vinegar is not safe, although cider vinegar is fine.
probably funny that a kitty knows this much about celiac disease. but it's my job to watch out for my mama, so i read right along with her. got questions? drop me a line. i'll be like professor daisy and answer questions about how to eat with celiac.
