It’s Friday finally. It’s been a really long week.
I (Denise) tried a brand of canned tomatoes (Cento) this week that doesn’t have citric acid on the label of ingredients, and I seem to have passed the trial. Which means that I’m not going to have to make ketchup from fresh tomatoes, which would mean having to buy 24 pounds of tomatoes and blanching, peeling, coring and seeding them. Woo hoo!! I’m going to try this ketchup recipe using the canned tomatoes.
Mary Kate and I went to see a documentary, which we will discuss later in a further blog post, but in the meantime, if you’re concerned about GMO’s check out these lists of non-GMO Verified products.
I’ve been watching Facebook posts about people going to fairs and getting fried dough and have been gnashing my teeth in envy. And then I found this recipe for gluten-free fried dough. And I’m pretty sure I can manage modifications to make it corn free too.
Lastly, Halloween is coming up, so hey candy. I know that Peeps are not traditionally Halloween candy, but why couldn’t we do pumpkin shaped ones? They are gluten, corn, egg and dairy free. (There are Peeps for every holiday. Pumpkins and ghosts and black cats for Halloween. — MK)
Ever noticed a shine on deli meat and wondered if it was safe to eat? (I know, makes you want to swear off deli meat, right?) Well, it might just be basic physics — or it could be gross biology. Here’s the full scoop. (I promise, it’s actually mostly physics, not biology).
Hmmm, aloo mattar burgers? These look like they’d freeze well to be on hand for quick meals, don’t they?
Has anyone found the Daiya pizzas yet? I have such high, high hopes.
And because I really like ending on a non-food note (obsession is only fun for so long), I really enjoyed this comic.
