I tried a new GF dish tonight

For the fun of it I tried a new gluten free dish tonight. It was a microwavable kind, and look good on the box!

The brand is evol. Which of coarse is love spelled backwards. :) I took my package home excited to be able to pop something into the microwave and not have to spend 20+ min cooking for only me. I took it out of the box, and my first thought was... this doesn't look anything like the picture on the box. To illustrate let me share some photo's.

                                                                  more light on it.

                     So you can see that I was a little suspicious before I took a bite of this goopy meal.
                         But was really good. The blend of spices and chicken gave it a very good taste. It was also comforting to know that this brand is loyal to making their boxes and bowls from recycled paper and they take great pride in how they treat their animals. So that is a plus.
On the downside this one bowl did not fill me up. I would need 2 of these in order to fill satisfied, and at $4 a bowl, I think I would take the 20 min to make my own. It was a nice treat though and if your in a hurry for a meal, and need it to be gf, you can find it at GE on the strip in the frozen food area with the other organic and gf foods :) So over all I rate this a 3 stars product.

Who says Gluten Free has to be hard on the Wallet?

Here are some simple foods I found at Aldi's that are gluten Free.
I will add photo's as I buy/ take more :)
PopCorn: a great treat!

Tomato Sauce: Great for making sauces.

Peanut Butter: Tastes great on celery, apples, and rice cakes!

So as you can see there are a lot of foods I can eat, and aren't a substitute for the normal foods everyone else eats. 
As I find more great priced Items I will add them to this blog and post where I find them. 

Thanks for reading!
