OK, it’s been way too long since my last post … much going on, but this post will be short and about something else!
I was shopping at Sam’s Club the other day and in the freezer section, I came across a “seafood mixture” … ideal for Paella! Yum!
So, what’s the problem? GF Paella should be pretty easy, right (yellow rice + chicken (in our version) + seafood + some GF safe flavoring sauces) … nothing illegal there. If you are doing CF, make sure you don’t add any butter or any other flavoring agent that would be illegal.
Here’s the problem – out of habit, I checked the ingredients list. Yeah, the ingredients list on a bag of mixed seafood … how exciting could that be? INCLUDES WHEAT! What??? Yep, nearly made something deadly for my grandmother (86, frail, and a Celiac). <sigh>
Anyway, today’s lesson is READ THE INGREDIENTS ON EVERYTHING. No matter how trivial it may seem.
