Grocery Store Trips

Last night the Man needed to run to Whole Foods for something and while we were there he wanted to buy me some gluten free stuff. Just to spoil me.

We walked around. I wasn't hungry so nothing stuck out. I also didn't want to make him buy me expensive items like a $6 box of granola bars. Even though he would- but come on- six dollars?! Anyway I found a few items.

What did we come home with?

A box of Glutino's strawberry wafer cookies, a bag of Arrowhead Mills' millet flour, some chocolate truffles, and one of those "gluten free" tags that was on the shelf. Not saying how that got in there but it starts with "the" and ends with "Man."

We tried the wafers in California and really liked them, but I've never tried millet flour before. Suggestions on how it bakes/ tastes/ recipes are very welcome!

The truffles were just good.

Also- At Starbuck's I picked up a free sample of Justin's Natural Maple Almond Butter. It looks neat, but I don't know what to do with it. Use it like peanut butter? The website, just begs for juvenile jokes. But I won't go there.

Anyway. Suggestions!!

Try the lemon flavored wafers. I haven't even tried the strawberry flavor because I tend to dislike that flavor. The lemon wafers are my absolute favorite storebought goody!
I use millet flour in place of corn usually. I haven't used it much lately...millet bread is pretty good. Just use your favorite corn bread recipe. Sometimes the millet is a little bitter so I mellow it out with rice flour. I occasionally put it in biscuits. I never use it in sweet recipes.
