His and hers oatmeal? (See comments.)

[As usual lately, I have no access to the "Compose" window from my office computer, so I'm writing my post here.]

Davka, just because I conclude that I have to switch to *gluten-free* oatmeal, my husband decides that he absolutely must have *steel-cut* oatmeal? What a waste of kitchen-cabinet space, not to mention a good reason to look carefully before I make my breakfast.

I get the last laugh, though--it turns out that the packets of instant steel-cut oatmeal contain less oatmeal than the packets of gluten-free, so the hubster will be joining me in eating the gluten-free version as soon as he runs out of the steel-cut.

Fussy, fussy, fussy. :) But who knows? With all the foods I'm having trouble eating, I may be *forced* to become, if not a gourmet cook, at least a half-decent one.

When Good Foods Make You Feel Bad. Yep, that’s me.

Yes, I'm trying to cover all possibilies--in addition to being tested for gluten intolerance, I'm also being tested for Celiac Disease and Crohn’s Disease, particularly in light of the fact that our son has already been there and done that. :( My blood test took place this past Monday, and my gastroscopy is scheduled for this coming Friday.

Heads up for New York City residents on a gluten-free diet--I'm happy to inform you that Seasons Kosher Supermarket in Manhattan (on Amsterdam Ave. at about 92nd St.) stocks gluten-free oat rolls. These are a good substitute for challah, because you can say motzi on oats! (To the best of my knowledge, the only grains on which one can say ha-motzi are wheat, rye, oats, barley, and spelt, but the only grain among those that can be found in gluten-free form is oats.) Just be sure to cut the rolls with a knife and on a plate, rather than breaking them--they're very crumbly. They're closer in texture to a corn muffin than to bread, but the package specifically says "birchoto ha-motzi."
