No Bread For You

As you know, the boy is back on a gluten free diet and we are still trying to find good gluten free bread. Michael bought a loaf at a local market that he thought was promising so the boy has been taking pb&j to school on the new bread this week. While cleaning out his lunch box I've noticed that the sandwiches are left mostly untouched. Today I asked him what he thought of his sandwich and he said, "Um. I liked it. Well actually . . . it was kind of medium. I mean it was mostly disgusting." Then he said, "Besides, there is a girl who sits next to me and she says there is NO SUCH THING as gluten free bread! And she would know because her grandpa is a farmer. So I just told her that I was on a wheat free diet and THEN I had to explain what a diet was."

Well. . .he IS a farmer Lis! He, and therefor also his daughter, know these things! Why doesn't your doctor??!! I would take it up with your doctor. "But Brig's friend said. . . .!!!"

I'm kinda with her on this one. How could there be gluten free bread when gluten is what gives bread its shape and texture. Without the gluten you've got something else, but it ain't bread.

Besides, grandpas are always right.

I liked the evolution of his opinion of the sandwich. Classic.

You should try Pamela's amazing bread mix. It takes about 5 minutes to make in your kitchen aid. It's nearly like "real" bread, but it only lasts a couple days.
