Say hello to my first encounter with xanthan gum. You may be wondering what exactly that is. Well, according to Bob's Red Mill:
Xanthan Gum is made from the outer layer of a tiny inactive bacterium called Xanthomonas campestris. It is an excellent all purpose thickener for dressings, gravies and sauces. Its unique ability to hold small particles of food together make it an ideal substitute for gluten in gluten-free baking.

I'm not even exaggerating when I say I use xanthan gum at least 5/7 days in the week. So it was with great sadness that I finished off the package today. But I was curious...exactly how long did the package last me? Here comes the art of time traveling.

I'm actually not that sad though because I still have another package in the cupboard ;).
As a random side note, my friends Nick and Lance just did a cover of the song One Thing Remains by Jesus Culture. Check it out!!!
