Always buy the bigger pie

I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for dinner tonight. I know you are thinking that is an awesome dinner and you are so right! Especially when you remember that I have not had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in years because it's hard to eat a sandwich when the bread is actually made out of sand. OK, not actual sand, but gluten-free bread tastes like it does. Except I have found the best gluten-free bread ever. Ever! It actually tastes like real bread. I know this because the children sometimes mistake it for the real thing and eat it which makes me mad because then there isn't any for me. Also, I gave a piece to my friend Stevie and she loved it and then the week after she ate other bread and she told me it wasn't the same as my bread. Because this is magic bread and it has changed my life and I don't know if I will be able to live without it overseas. How long does bread keep? Can I ship it? You can order online. I just don't know if bread will survive a month in the pouch. But it might just be worth a shot, it is that good. This is the company, and no I don't get paid for product endorsements. I don't even get free products. Or coupons. But I want them to stay in business forever, so everyone who eats gluten-free, please, please buy this bread.

Tonight was the final cotillion class. It was amazing and Child 3 won a prize for dancing which was fabulous except for the fact that it was cookies made with regular flour. So I told her I would buy her a prize and she cheered right up. She looked lovely, even with the blue eye-shadow I told her she wasn't allowed to wear. (Yes, Child 3, I noticed the eye-shadow. And lipstick. And blush. Sigh.)

You know what is better than a brownie? Definitely not swimming with crocodiles. This giant croc in Australia decided to go surfing and they had to close the beach for a whole day.

Um, yeah they should close the beach! That thing is huge! I mean, you expect to find sharks in the surf, but not crocodiles. Remind me to look for those next time I'm at the beach, which will be in a couple of weeks, except I don't think you're supposed to swim in African rivers. Because there are crocodiles. And hippos. Did you know hippos are dangerous? Well now I do. Not happy about mean hippos. Not at all.


  1. That bread was the best GF bread ever! I requested that The Local Market in Falls Church try to find it and carry it. Wouldn't it be nice to have the bread down the street from you???

  2. Visit me and I'll **MAKE** you GF bread! (somehow or other. Seeing you would be worth the challenge).

    Glad you got some yumminess back in your life.
