No, Don't Tell Me!

The buckwheat pasta I had last night and for lunch-turns out it had wheat in it! I had a reaction, but sometimes I just don't know what makes me cough, and I spent the day checking and rechecking labels. We stopped at the Co-op tonight, I had the bag numbered for the next batch of bulk pasta, and I had the rubber glove ready to start filling my bag, when I decided that I'd better recheck the label on the bin. Not only did it have wheat, but wheat was the first ingredient. What a disappointment! They carry a packaged 100% buckwheat pasta, but it's $6.99 a half-pound. I can't bring myself to pay $14.00 a pound for pasta.

I guess it's back to the kitchen. I've made some tasty things that are "safe" for me, I'll just keep working on pasta.


  1. I have an idea. Have you ever tried making your own pasta? Pasta machines are fairly cheap now, and it might be fun. I have been thinking about doing it for a while now. I hear they have a flour made from peas! Wouldn't that be something!

  2. I have a pasta machine-it's kind of temperamental, but I have used it. I've made pasta from flour a lot, but now I have to figure out how to do it without gluten.

    I'm determined-gonna do it! Sick of eating spuds!


I am excited to hear from you, but I will check out your comment before posting it just in case... I do want your input and help with allergies!
