Thanks for all of the responses to my last post. There aren't a lot of comments there, but a lot of people have asked me about it. I have decided that I will give gluten-free a try, but I am easing my way into it. I am a little reluctant because it would require changing how we all eat, or separate meals for me. That and gluten-free diets seem like such a fad, with some fanatical followers.
This is just a part of our food storage: a lot of wheat, noodles, and non-gluten free food.
Two weeks ago, we went to Kansas City to visit the new LDS temple. Before LDS temples are dedicated, they are open for tours to the public. My children had been to the temple with us but, always had to wait outside, because they are not old enough to enter the temple. This was a good chance for them to see what it was like and for us to get away from Huxley.
famous for its "burnt ends", but this place had amazing burgers.
multiple tornados in the storm, just off the freeway we learned later, but we didn't see any of them. It was hard enough to see the semi truck in front of us.
Back home, the storm blew down the bird's nest by the front door and broke all the eggs. It was too bad, because the house finch had laid 4 more blue eggs and I suspect that the two mottled eggs were really from a cowbird. It would have been really interesting to see brood parasitism up close.
