Caramel and chocolate shortbread? Oh my goodness!

Found a recipe and a photo. I MUST.TRY.THIS.
*nodnodnod* :D

It's one of those things that can be lovely but often isn't. I often find it very sweet. I've never made it myself, but if I did I'd watch the sugar content. The shortbread takes the edge off it, as would a bit of salt in the caramel, I think. The one I had yesterday came from a local supermarket and it was nice and squidgy, which is how I feel it should be. :)


Breakfast: pancakes with apple chunks and maple syrup. Slightly fewer pancakes than I would have liked, after the first one got stuck to the bottom of the pan and had to be put out of its misery. :roll:
Elevenses: two toffee cake bites.
Lunch: ham sandwich on French bread.
Afternoon snack: assorted crisps and a few sweets.
Dinner: Barbecued Chinese chicken, burger and merguez sausage with pasta salad, potato salad and celery-and-tomato salad, followed by meringue and fruit....oh, and a couple of toasted marshmallows. :D There were also a couple of glasses of fizzy wine in there.

Pasty for breakfast...packet of lollies, because it's one of those days.
Pasta with sauce and a little bit of low fat cheese.
Coke Zero, in one of my lectures.

Something makes me think there was more than that...but writing it like that makes it look much better, except the lollies.

seriously.

but sprouted grain breads (ezekiel, for example) are delicious (toasted, anyway) and the sprouting process renders the gluten far more digestible. i've heard that many people who are sensitive or allergic to gluten can have ezekiel without issue. just fwiw...

Where can you buy these kinds of breads? I'm sorry to say, I've never heard of sprouted grain breads.

Well, purr, Whole Foods and Trader Joe's is a start. Some markets (Von's-Safeway) will carry them if there is enough of a demand, or you keep asking the manager "why don't you carry this xyz brand?" Maybe you should carry xyz brand.
Safeway markets is making an attempt out here to stock Gluten Free products, shelve space is a premium in the grocery business.

frozen food section, usually with the "healthy foods".

all my local grocery stores carry this product... even found it at publix in suburban florida, which says a lot. look for the orange wrapper...(purple for cinnamon/raisin, green for sesame).
