This & That

The weather here sucks.  There is no way to sugar coat it.  Maybe this ice is payback for my complaining about the cold & snow?  Today the kids are off for ice.  Tonight we have snow coming.  Let’s hope that it isn’t too much snow and they can go back to school tomorrow.  Since we can’t do a whole lot here, I put together a post full of thoughts that are running around in my head.

Have you seen the commercial for Gluten-Free Chex Cereals?  Click here to view.  I love that gluten-free food is getting more exposure because this equals more awareness for Celiac Disease.


A few weeks back I received a coupon to get a free sample of Florida’s Natural Orange Juice from and Florida’s Natural.  I picked up some while shopping on Sunday and I am glad that I did.  Just in time for the storm!  I am usually an OJ snob and stick with my Tropicana, however, I was really impressed with the Florida’s Natural.  They have many varieties, including my favorite – no pulp with added vitamin D & calcium! 

I have 8 coupons for $1.00 off Florida’s Natural OJ for the first 8 people to comment on this post! 


Another bonus when you buy OJ and have a crippling ice storm…


You have something to mix your Stoli’s with.  Open-mouthed smile  The Stoli’s is reserved for evening hours only. 


Snow day lunch will include some pasta to help keep us warm.  I prefer to use marinara & roasted veggies for mine, but Jon prefers “Noodles Baldini”.  I don’t believe that I have talked about the NB here on the blog before, so I will give you a brief overview.  Like most dishes Aaron makes, there is not a written recipe.  It is more of a combination of ingredients in amounts he feels tastes good on that specific day.  Today we will be using Goldbaum’s gluten-free pasta. 


Into the mix….

  • butter
  • garlic powder
  • oregano
  • basil
  • parmesan cheese
  • cooked gluten-free pasta

That, my friends is “Noodles Baldini”.  Aaron has made this for the kids for years and it was only recently that Jon learned that he had created this dish.  He thought is was something like “Chicken Parmesan” that he could go order in a restaurant!  LOL!  So cute.  I do believe Gluten-Free Drumsticks are in order for dessert. 

Are you crippled by the recent weather?  What are you doing to stay entertained?  Remember to leave me a comment for your OJ coupon!  Tell me what you will do with your Florida’s Natural OJ!   Too bad they aren’t coupons for the vodka, huh?  Winking smile
