I also found store-brand cough drops and cough syrup labeled "gluten free." Which saved me numerous minutes of frantically iPhone searching and cursing under (albeit hoarsely) my breath. I know you have to take all of the labeling with a grain of salt (gluten?) but I appreciated the effort.
2. Being Throaty McPainerson this week has added a new challenge to feeding. Not only did I need to stay gluten free, but I also needed to stay somewhat mushy and gushy. A new find that I think I will be adding to my pantry/emergency zombie preparedness kit is Wolfgang Puck's line of soups. So far, I've tried and loved the Signature Tortilla, but there are several in the line that are gluten free. And they are organic, for what it's worth. Plus, I am a sucker for celebrity-chef endorsed products. I love tortilla soup, period, but this one is hearty enough to help me fight off illness (and possibly zombies).
3. Have I mentioned yet that I love the fall? Usually I am a Halloween junkie, but this year, I just haven't felt as into it. Between my play and being sick, I just haven't been in the mood. But we did do some pumpkin carving at my in-laws' last night, and it turned out great! (Luke and I did the one in the top corner that looks like a witch stirring her brew.)
Here's hoping I can get a little Halloween mojo going this weekend, maybe take in a haunted house or two. But then again, screaming would probably not be good for my poor lil' sore vocal chords. Hmm.
Hope everyone has a happy and safe weekend-before-Halloween.
