Gluten Free Beer….

So I was making cookies with peanut butter chips and mini chocolate chips being susie homemaker. Then insert my husband. He went to the grocery store and came back with an infinity of mini pies filled with gluten (that I can’t eat)… and two 6-packs of beers. He hands me a beer and says have a beer with me — I bought you gluten free. HUH? When does that happen?? Anyhow, I haven’t had drank beer in years – like more than 15 years. If I didn’t know better I think he was trying to get me drunk, LOL!

Usually with alcohol I would get awfully sick. So sick that I would be throwing up for hours on end and just miserable. So I basically gave up drinking all together. The euphoria of being tipsy didn’t out way the awful feeling of puking for 8 hours straight. So it was a no brainer. Now fast forward to present day… I am gluten intolerant. Probably why I never did well drinking beer or other alcohol’s to begin with. So cheers, I am gonna have my first beer in 15 years and of all things check this out RedBridge it is made by Anheuser-Busch. AND it actually tastes pretty decent.

From what I can tell — and honestly I am not a beer aficionado by any means, but this is a full-bodied gluten-free lager brewed from sorghum and an American Amber / Red Lager with an ABV of 4.00%.

So I finished my beer. Feeling a little something. Not drunk, but here’s hoping I sleep in my bed tonight and not in the bathroom!

Udi’s Gluten Free Soft N’ Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

1617

So I received a box of Granola Bars from Udi’s — I normally love Udi’s. However, I just tried their Gluten Free Soft N’ Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars and was hoping for something that was in fact soft and chewy, but these were not. The bar was hard to chew with a crunchy texture. Not what I had hoped for. Now for flavor – the granola bar was quite tasty with a hint of nuts. Nevertheless, I was really hoping for a true chewy granola bar. Now my kids loved them – texture, flavor and all… and wanted more. I am either really picky or I just remember what Gluten Granola Bars texture use to be. If you would like to check them out go to:
