It's not even like it seemed like a good idea at the time

The sausage balls looked so good. I said to my co-worker, who is also gluten free, "I'm going to regret this." Then I put two on my plate. She had two little pigs-in-a-blanket, a specialty of our office manager. She had pulled the little hot dogs out and was just going to eat them until I pointed out that she had some cross-contamination from the bits of bread stuck to the wieners. She put down the wiener, and I ate the sausage balls (made from a Bisquick recipe).

And regretted it within an hour. I felt like shit and I felt like a moron. I blew up like a balloon, and I was in serious discomfort. Today is better, but I'm still seriously gassy.

I don't know why I would do that to myself! I knew what would happen. I said it as I was eating them. So WHY????? Was I somehow hoping for a different result?

I can do this.

The bread experiment turned out good. I made a toasted ham and cheese sandwich that was pretty tasty. I didn't much care for the crust, though. It was too crunchy.

Today I used some of the bread I made last weekend, especially the crust, to make Italian style breadcrumbs. I ground them up in my little food processor and toasted them. Then I added salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese. It smells just like the breadcrumbs I used to use.

I just took a meatloaf out of the oven (btw, Heinz ketchup is safe), and I have some spinach-artichoke dip in the oven. I will spread it on my tasty gluten free bread.
