Now that's my kind of mac & cheese!

Happy belated Valentine's Day to everyone!  I was studying all weekend for my big GRE exam yesterday.  On Sunday I needed something quick to make so I could get back to relearning all of the math I failed in high school & college.  Ahhh, Trader Joe's mac & cheese...I hope it tastes good....cross your fingers!
mmmmmmmm...............holy crap, this is amazing!  Very close to Kraft mac & cheese as a matter of fact!  I'm very impressed you delightful box of mac & cheese!  Celiac's if you miss Kraft I highly recommend you give the Trader Joe's brand a try.  And on the up side, the rice pasta is so much better for you than the enriched pasta!  Sold at all Trader Joe's stores so visit their website to see of there's a store near you.  One box only set me back $1.99.  How cool is that?

***Be careful because it's made on equipment shared with peanuts, tree nuts, and soy.  I am fairly sensitive to soy but I took a small risk and I was fine.  Only you know you so you be the judge.

I hope to someday take my best shot at a homemade GF mac & cheese but until then I am happy to explore and find my "from the box" favorites!

I would certainly be doing a disservice to the world, especially my fellow Celiac's and allergy prone peeps if I didn't share with you this great product and deal! A few weeks ago, while down & out in a, "good Lord I cannot possibly eat another piece if plain baked chicken" rut, I decided to try out my skills at making homemade chicken nuggets. I used my Gluten Free corn tortilla bread crumbs (as mentioned in a previous post) and I've been hooked ever since! I had in the fridge some Saz's BBQ sauce that someone bought for me FOREVER ago and I just never gave the stuff a fair shot. I'm chalking it up to me just being stubborn and assumptive, as I was back in the day...ok, I may still be a tiny bit stubborn...depends on who you ask! Silly rabbit. Saz's BBQ sauce created the perfect marriage to my crispy homemade chicken nuggies!

I recently ran out and haven't been able to find it anymore at my local grocery store. I found Saz's BBQ products online and low & behold they had a super deal. The "Saz's Sauce Trio" for $10! That's 3, 28oz bottles, one of each of Saz's signature flavors for $10 (S&H was free!). I ordered 2 of the trio's and the shipment arrived within about 24 hours. Amazing! I haven't tasted the Vidalia Onion or the Sassy yet but all three flavors are Gluten Free, Fat Free and also do NOT contain any Soy, Milk, Egg, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Wheat, Fish, or Shellfish. My body is not a fan of soy and do you know how hard it is to find a BBQ Sauce, or ANY type of sauce for that matter, withOUT soy in it? Go order yours so you're ready for all of the big summer BBQ's coming up and a much deserved Thank you to Saz's for this delish product!
