Mmmm, reminds me of M&S Earl Grey tea. Simply the best! I used to have it imported from Britain, but now the shipping is too high. :(

We had spaghetti too. :) We've been making it with spicy Italian turkey sausage.

Nothing spells healthy like "spicy Italian turkey sausage"!

I dunno; do they use the words "mechanically separated" and "may contain"?? :naughty:

Nope. Those words are not on the package. The ingredients list is short and mostly recognizable. It's gluten free, lean, 65% less fat than pork sausage. Would be happier if it had less fat and less sodium. But, turkey is much leaner and healthier than pork or beef. Getting the spicy version adds more flavor to the dish. So, nothing :naughty: about it. But I will at least give you credit for asking for info right before condemning it! ;)

I had game stew (venison, rabbit <sorry Dotsie>, pigeon, duck <what duck?>, and pheasant) twice cooked in a slow cooker; served with plenty of avec. :D

Oh, well, tell me more! I need gluten free stuff for wifey. We want to make a gluten free pizza. The cheese is a problem, because the lactose intolerance as well.

I don't mind people eating rabbit, just don't eat mine! :D
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

Could only manage soup last night and could barely taste it because I'm so stuffed up. :(

Con, I'm not well versed on a gluten-free diet, but those turkey products are by Jennie-O and are in the local supermarket. The nice thing about adding the spicy sausage is that it's so flavorful you can pass on the cheese altogether. The sauce and pasta were organic, but don't know if they are gluten-free. And, the pasta wasn't wheat, unfortunately. When I've tried wheat pastas the whole family revolts, even Thing 1 who is great about different things. You can use spaghetti squash instead of pasta though. It has a different texture but is still good and works well with either a red or white sauce.
