So tonight Child 1 asked if we could make skillet lasagna, so I went to the grocery store that carried the gluten-free lasagna noodles, and they didn't have any. Not one package. So we made skillet penne instead, and it was amazing! I used Italian canned tomatoes which were delicious and we will definitely do this again. I love making dinner in one pot and food that tastes like lasagna made in a wok in 30 minutes is awesome. Thank you, Stevie, for that fabulous idea. Also, cooking the pasta in sauce makes up for the fact that it is gluten free pasta and has less taste. At least they are not as bad as most gluten-free cookies. I offered one of the good ones to Mom the other day and she said no thanks, she tried the ones in the kitchen. I said no, these were the good ones and she said she would stick to Thin Mints and I completely don't blame her because rice is not a dessert. It does not taste like dessert; it tastes like rice even when you make it into a cookie. There is one company that makes good gluten-free cookies and this is it.
That's it. All the rest are terrible, even the cream-filled pretend Oreos which are not the same as Oreos. I miss Oreos. And brownies.
Bobbi sent me this picture of this animal control officer in North Carolina who is having a worse day than me.
Now, I'm not exactly sure what happened, but there was a pig on the loose in Greensboro, and this officer had to come take care of it. I know he is having a worse day than me because any day that ends up with someone carrying a big, fat, hairy, scary pig around is a bad day. So thank you, Mr. Animal Control, for keeping the streets safe from wild pigs. I have a really good recipe for pork roast if you need it.
