Pancakes in a can?

my hubby got into the habit of making pancakes every week on his swingshift. and since 75% of the family is gluten free, he has taken to make them with buckwheat. they taste a bit more gritty and nutty, but overall, still very palatable, not like the time i tried to make buckwheat soba... that was terrible. the kids didn't seem to mind but i did. now i would be totally rolling my eyes at this idea of pancakes in a can, as one more over processed, chemical cocktail of die and preservatives... but it's organic! my jaw nearly dropped.

of course, it's still a product i wouldn't go for, because a. there's soy, and i think of it being healthy is a big deception and b. there is wheat and wheat has gluten :( but if they believed in health enough to care to select organic ingredients, and if it become popular enough, maybe they'll come up with other healthy varieties.

i so miss pizzaaaaaaaaa! dairy is an other big no no here. even more so then gluten. *sigh*

Hey Little Lulu

do you remember the little Lulu? she had her own TV show when i was a kid, but apparently she's much older then that

Little Lulu first appeared in the Saturday Evening Post on February 23, 1935 in a single panel comic strip, appearing in her debut as a flower girl at a wedding, strewing the aisle with banana peels. ~ Wikipedia

so she was already stirring controversy back then.

Wow 8 people? you gotta be kidding me Nancy, i don't even know that many bloggers at all, i'm not even sure what random stuff would be worth blogging about me here. anyway, here are 8 random things about me :

1. i don't like my toes toutching each other.
2. i will probably stare at the monitor for the next 20 minutes trying to think of something else to write. sometime it takes me very long to write a short e-mail or what ever else.
3. as a child i used to have dreams where i'm flying in the sky, seems that i lost that ability and i miss it.
4. i have a terribly hard time remembering people's name
5. my first pet was an iguana i named Akea
6. I can't play first person shooter games, i can't coordinate in it, i have this tendency to get stuck in walls. i tried to play unreal tournament once, for 20 minutes and had to lay down for 2 hours because i was too motionsick.
7. *random blank*
8. i used to enjoy watching little Lulu as a kid, and jumped on the dvds when i saw them in a discount bin, after watching a few episodes back, i changed my mind about her and the show... it's violent and sexist : i didn't remember her being that way, do you?

sorry i dont' have 8 peoples to tag back, but you're welcome to take it at random and leave a note in the comments to say you did :D
