Interesting. Thanks LP!

I am so glad it is a cooler day today as I have to bake several sheet cakes for an order for Friday. I am making 200 individual "castle" cakes for a kids day camp at the church. I make their final snack every year and it is a labour of love. I do the baking, get all the pieces together and volunteers put them together tomorrow and Friday.

Before that, we have to head across the river for our gluten free bread. I used to make it until we found this bakery that makes the best GF bread we have ever tasted - potato flax. It looks like and has the texture of french bread and as long as it is used fresh or kept frozen, it never goes like cardboard. I have never found a recipe! We make the 1.5 hour round trip about once a month.

There is a President's Choice clam-tomato juice with no MSG.

Dang. Wish I had known about this when I was in Canada a week or so ago. It doesn't look like it's available in the States.

I'm vegging out on the couch for a while longer. I've got a long day of work ahead and its quiet and calm here at the moment. I was up stupidly early so I might just have myself a morning nap too.

Went to the store this morning and bought a jar of HELLMANN'S (new) REAL WHIPPED TANGY DRESSING. Never saw this before. To me it still taste like their mayonnaise but it does have a little sharp taste to it. I do like it.

I'm saying "Phew!" Our power was out for about 15 minutes. I think a lot of people have their A/C cranked way up today. It's 33C and feels like 42C!
