I had this horrible thing happen to me recently. I got curious about a chemical component of food, a component of wheat specifically. The next thing I knew I was calling people and giving them dissertations on the poisons we are all eating and not knowing about etc. I started reading even more labels than usual. I threw out half of what was lurking in my pantry. I stated cooking differently and eating differently. My daughters are horrified that “Mom has gone hippie on us” and they have demanded the inception of what they are referring to as “poison-night” in our house. The rules for Poison Night are simple: they will agree to tolerate my tofu and natural PB & organic J, if they can eat food out of a box once a month. I’ll agree to it. I think it won’t be long till they find that food gross too, but I’ll let them figure that out themselves!

I joined several hundred people up in Austin this morning for the Got Guts road and and gluten-free food fair. I was one of the vendors at the food fair with my business Poundcake Lady. I brought over 600 samples of my pound cakes and brownies and came home with absolutely none left! It was great to see so many people come to the race and the food fair! Everyone was kind and very gracious for all the the vendors hard gluten-free food work! Photographer Anne Barfield, also owner of the fabulous gluten-free bed and breakfast in San Antonio called Chicken Paradise, took this fun photo of me and Francie Kelley who is the Austin Chair of Alamo Celiac, GIG. Thanks to all who stopped by for some samples! Hope to see you again soon:)
