All of those lessons apply to life, except the one about labels. Life doesn’t come with labels.
I eat Gluten free frozen waffles.. but only Kroger Brand. The rest of them never get beyond soggy.
“Do you know what has gluten in it? Everything! Check again, maybe it’s just Cancer – how am I going to live?”
If you lay them on a tray in a toaster oven, turn it over halfway through, they won’t fall apart — at least not like in an upright toaster.
I used to eat toaster waffles with peanut butter and syrup.
“Tree Tapper” T-Shirt? (Insulated I’d think)
Caulfield’s last statement can also be translated as Hold tight and never give up. A good plan for life in general.
Never had ‘gluten free’ anything on purpose. But it’s easy to acknowledge the cardboard that passes for frozen breakfast breads these days. Once made an adequate change from the work of making home made, but no longer.
Too many ‘dietary adjustments’ were made in order to chase the diet fads that have inundated the world. Recipes changed for more bucks and not for the better, although the package hype promises ever greater taste, etc. They didn’t make it.
You can make your own waffles, adjusting the recipe to your own nutritional needs or wants, freeze the batch, and toast them as desired on later dates. (Toaster ovens may work better than ordinary toasters.) I’m not concerned about gluten, so I use a blend of whole wheat, buckwheat, and oat flour. Leftover bananas are always a desirable addition. An hour’s labor today can provide several mornings’ breakfasts.
The indigenous people that discovered maple syrup were here in what is now the USA long before Alfred Nobel started messing around with nitroglycerine and discovered a “dynamite” way to make that powerful explosive safe to handle.
Hush button? I have to yank the battery. It needs an “I’m cooking” snooze alarm.
[a la Homer Simpson] Mmmm, maple syrup… [drools]
Let’s hope our country can be salvaged.
Some gluten-free foods are really good. Such as Betty Crocker Gluten-free Brownies.
