Alrighty!

I need a recepie for GF bread. I had found a wonderful mix by BREADS BY ANNA, but can no longer use it because it mas Millet in it and millet is a no no for DS now. So I guess Ill be making from scratch. The bread needs to be the following:

egg free
gluten free
yeast free
Tapioca free
millet free
white potato free

and I do not have a bread maker!

Any suggestions/recepies would be welcome!!!

JR- Thai food and comedy. YUM and FUN.

I need some opinions on my new thread. I'm super confused.

It's July!!! 3 months and we get to go home to Arizona! I hate grocery shopping by the way it's really depressing I spent tons of $$$$ and didn't get a whole lot. DH isn't very happy I need a new shopping plan....sigh

Ugh. DD just drank her watercolor paint water. Wonder what kind of reaction she'll have to that? On the plus side, this is the first time she has painted except for finger paints as a baby (which she was not impressed with), and she is really digging it.

dd has been saying for the past few weeks "remember, yesterday, when I drank the paint water?" and we have NO CLUE what she's stalking about...

DD and DH's b-day's today. Cora is 4 and hubster is 33! Going to have coconut milk ice cream banana splits this weekend!
Getting prepped for a two week trip home next Friday. I want to take a cooler full of meat w/dry ice so I don't have to eat grocery store meat. Also want to make some sprouted buckwheat granola to take.
Hope everyone is enjoying summer!

That's hilarious!

Happy birthdays!

M2S- yes, take it easy. Camping is a lot of work- before and after. It never seemed like this much work when I was single and childless... But man, our recent camping trip just wiped me out!

JR, I didn't know you'd actually posted it...I've been experimenting with almond flour lately because it's is so much more forgiving than reg gf baking (at least for me...). I'll check yours out. Wonder if I have everything?

I spent way too much money grocery shopping, too. I was giving in to my cravings.

I love camping! I don't want to go pregnant tho. Too much work, too tiring. Drink lots of water. (Oh, and I hate outhouses as it is...but pregnant? EW)

ETA: I don't have sorghum flour, JR...

I am so weepy tired. Is this normal? I'm 6.5 months preg. I wake up feeling fine, emotions and energy. With a normal day of mental and med low physical, by 4 I am wiped.
I have so much more packing and cooking to do, plus a work deadline that has been pushed up because of the trip. I tried to load the dishwasher but the roller isn't working. I just burst into tears and now I'm lying down, totally stressed. I know the crying is pregnancy but is everything else normal? I don't have the mental energy.

www.buckwheatpete.com has breads. I use... wait... they all use tapioca... but wait again... I've used sweet potato in its place when I ran out of tapioca, and it worked. It's light buckwheat, tapioca, water, salt, and honey (I use maple syrup). I use the pita recipe as my pizza crust. His are all yeast free I think.

Also... what was the other question... brownies... the recipe I have has eggs in it... I used to have one that DS could do as well, but I'm pretty sure that one had almond flour in it, and I haven't done that one since we pulled almond from DS. I can look that one up if you want.

Okay... weirdness. What else is new? I used to get what I think is menstrual migraines (first day of period, killed me, nothing helped, sensitive to light, movement, etc.) before I went on the eliminations. Then went away. The last few months I've been getting headaches again on the first day of my period, but they're weird. Like today, woke up completely congested, sinusy. An hour later got my period. Nothing helped except benadryl. And it's like a sinus headache just for that day. And then it goes away. Can your period somehow make your allergies worse or something?

I got the Namaste pizza crust today at a HFS in VT. Has anyone tried it? I have to go to Whole Foods and stock up on a few things when I go back to CT tomorrow for doctor. We've been going through the Coconut Aminos "soy sauce" like water on things. I hope it's good for us (or at least not bad for us).

JR - I'm glad you got out.

Carren - did you end up going to the doctor today with the kids in tow?

Wow CS. Totally funny about the paints.

M2S - sorry about the exhaustion. I think its probably totally normal. It sounds like you are trying to do a lot physically, in addition to managing your children's issues. Pretty sure that hormones fluctuate a lot during pregnancy so that could account for the weepiness. I know that by the end of the day when I was pregnant all I could do was sit in a chair and vegetate.

Kathy - Yes, I did end up going. My mother came, which is often like having 3 children, instead of 2. And the doctor was running late and the appointment ran late so we ended up in a lot of traffic and then we stopped on the way home to pick up our meat CSA and they had forgotten to bring it to the dropoff point. It was a very long day.

And I have to say that I'm a little freaked out by some of the stuff the doctor was saying, but I'll go an update my thread for that one.

I think it is the drop in progesterone. It can exacerbate allergies.

Glad you were still able to make the trip, Chlobo.

So Kathy, I went to get on your site and I got an attack warning from google--something about spyware and viruses coming through your site...I was worried that maybe your site is down or being used to pass something on? Or it could just be nothing...but I'm no computer expert so I'm waiting for DH to come home, since he is, lol...

I will check out the breads thanks...I have looked in multiple stores for sweet poatoe flour and can'rt find it...I see regular potato flour but this is not it is it? That's white potato flour right?? Where do you buy yours??

My sinuses are always worse right before and in the beginning of my period...weird!
