Take me out to the ball game!

As you’ve probably already noted, I am a huge Chicago Cubs fan. I bought my tickets and I was ready to go to the Cubs/Rockies game in Denver, all that was left was to start singing “take me out to … Continue reading


Review:  Smart Flour Foods Pizza

It was a long week.  We had our annual Lions Club carnival and then four days later I was on a bus to Denver for a quick two day legislative trip.  On the way home the last thing I wanted to think about was cooking dinner and settled on picking up a frozen pizza and settled on Smart Flour Foods pizza.

I needed something with a little protein, so I chose the uncured pepperoni variety. They do have two other kinds, and I know one of them is cheese, but I don’t really remember what the other kind that the supermarket had in stock was.  

I like the fact that it had a short term baking time. Just 11 to 13 minutes. When I took it out of the wrapper, it reminded me of the old school Totino’s pizzas. Very flat and not much to it.  It baked very quickly which I was very happy for.  

When I came out, the outer edges of the crust seemed very done but the underneath part still wasn’t very crispy, and I really like my pizza crispy! So I don’t know if I should have baked it longer, but I was afraid that it might burn the edges.

The taste was fine, nothing spectacular, and really did remind me of that old school Totino’s pizza! The problem is that for $7.99, the price is way more than it should be for a pizza of that type. 

Next time I will spend a little more money and go for the Conte’s pizza or the Udi’s pizza. Or just go all out and find a gluten-free place that delivers.

On the road again…

I love traveling, even if it’s day trip or a work trip.  New areas, new people to talk to, gets me really excited because I love adventure!

The thing I don’t love is eating out.  I’m always “that person”.  “Angela, where can you eat?”  Then there is asking the server for a gluten free menu and the disappointment when they don’t have one or say “I think it’s ok”.  Sigh.  I try to do as much research as possible before heading out but when you’re not sure what area of the, let’s say, Denver metro area you’ll be in, it’s hard to plan.

What are your suggestions?  I have apps on my phone but they aren’t always up to date or don’t always have the restaurants that aren’t chains.  I always take snacks along but after two days of eating “snacks”, well, you just can’t keep doing it.

I am grateful that, on this trip, a good friend of mine who is aware of my need to be GF will be along.  He will make sure we have somewhere safe for me to eat but…there is always that chance of me NOT being able to eat.

So, these are my thoughts as I get ready to go on this trip!  Wish me luck!
