If you don’t immediately recognize that title as the lyrics to a song……..please go educate yourself on one of the best musicals ever………..The Music Man.
*disclaimer: all opinions offered are my own, except the one about The Music Man- that’s a fact. Nobody mailed me the following meal kit to try – I bought it last Saturday at Kroger and I may have danced a little when I found it.*
There were three things that I genuinely grieved when I had to give up gluten: freshly baked bread, really good craft beer (especially an IPA made with Cascade Hops), and Chinese food. I can chow down on some General Tso’s chicken. The spicier, the better.
Do you see the giant GLUTEN FREE stamp on that bad boy? I whipped it up for Sunday supper with some brown rice, and while it wasn’t as amazing as some freshly deep fried and tossed in MSG meat that I hope is chicken, it definitely scratched the itch. I made it *exactly* as the instructions said……GASP……I know. Next time, I will add more red pepper flakes, and probably teach myself how to make General Tso’s sauce. But for a quick meal, or to satisfy the craving for Chinese food, this fits the bill. There are a number of kits that are gluten free and available in the market, so I encourage you to try them, and doctor them if you are adventurous!
If I am, in fact, able to figure out how to make a really good Tso sauce, I will of course share it with you, my adoring fans. (Hi Mom!)
