Pretty much anything that is packaged has to be checked for MSG. It angers me to no end! The most frustrating for me lately is packaged meat, like sausages (polish, smoked, or brats). When will the high end brands get on board and stop putting that and gluten into meat. It is not needed. Farmland and HyVee are both well aware of this nifty fact. Meat tastes just fabulous WITHOUT the added MSG. Now how in the world do I get companies like Johnsonville, Jimmy Dean and Eckert on board.
I have already accepted that things like that are prepackaged like Hamburger Helper (even gf) and gravies/prepackaged seasonsings are going to have it, but applaud those companies like McCormick's that go the extra step (or skip that extra step) to ensure there is no MSG added.
Know this holiday seasoning its lurking everywhere. Watch for it,I know I will be.

Look for future updates as I have a few more things to test out in the coming weeks. So far I like the mixes and they don't have too many add ins to make them great value.

I am shocked to say I really liked these. I like that two is enough and doesn't leave me wanting more and they are only 58 calories per stick which is really good for a snack food containing chocolate. I liked the flavor and there is no gf taste at all. I highly recommend these. You can get them at Hy-Vee W Kimberly Rd and online.

Lemon Burst Cookies by WOW Baking Company. These cookies are awesome. They are moist and chewy, no more hard gluten free cookies. They have no after taste at all.
I was sent a box of goodies to try (of course during my diet). The first thing I tried was a Peanut Butter Pillow. It reminded me a very large piece of Butterfinger,but chewier. It wasn't my favorite. Next I tried "Michael's Chocolate Combo with Pretzel. It was awesome, when that sample was done, I was hoping for another one in the box. Today I tried The Cinnamon Toast Toffee - it was my least favorite. It tastes fine I am just not a big cinnamon fan. Last but certainly not least, I

I pounded out the chicken to 1/4" thickness. Spread cream cheese on it, topped with thawed spinach then roll it up and wrap a piece of raw bacon around it secure that bacon with a couple tooth picks and Put it in a greased pan. Continue the same thing with the rest of your chicken.
I baked mine at 350 for 40 minutes until juices run clear and then turn on the broiler for 5 minutes on high to crisp the bacon.
My husband LOVED this. It was so simple. It required no extra seasoning. I served it with stuffed yellow peppers also wrapped in bacon.

7 Up Biscuits
I used the same amount of sour cream and diet 7 up as the recipe calls for but only 1 cup of Bisquick. I cooked them 15-20 minutes at 450 they were so good. There are NONE left. Dang it. I can't make these very often. I just can't stop eating them.
