My triumph of the week was getting my daughter to eat and enjoy dairy free cheese sauce! She was eating it by the spoonful, something she wouldn’t even try before. Now I just have to write down the measurements so I can share the recipe!
I decided to try these Apple Cinnamon Waffles last week in spite of the fact it’s not a gluten-free recipe. I just used my regular gluten-free flour mix and when the batter was a little more watery than it should be (I make waffles regularly, so I’m aware what the thickness of the batter should be!) I added some more flour until it had thickened up. They were super good, except the princess didn’t like the apple chunks. I just told her to pick them out.
The theme for the Gluten Free Menu Swap over a Celiac Family is Valentine’s Treats. I do love Valentine’s Day treats! In the past I’ve just done simple chocolate strawberries and I might do that again if I can find some good strawberries. (Most of the ones around here seem to be really green this year!) I am planning on making some soft sugar cookies with the Princess so she can practice her decorating skills. I will probably make some Valentine’s Day eggs in toast sometime this week also!
We’re cooking from the pantry this week other than the fresh veggies I got at the farmer’s market. We have a well stocked fridge and freezer and I planned too many meals for last week so it’s a great week not to go shopping.
We might get up in time to get to church and have a decent breakfast one of these Sunday’s, but for now I am thankful for something in the freezer that we can grab and go!
Lunch: Steak sandwiches for the others, sweet potato and regular potato french fries, sautéed beet greens with onions and mushrooms
Dinner: roasted beets with balsamic vinegar, fish, popcorn, chocolate syrup
Rest of the week:
Eggs all kinds and all ways!
Mango Marriage Saver Smoothie
Breakfast for dinner: eggs with Banana donuts
Something with leftover rice and shrimp–not sure if it’s going to be shrimp fried rice or something different.
Some soup from the freezer either veggie or chili!
Cauli-power Alfredo probably with chicken for everyone else.
Cumin Lime Bean Quinoa Salad This didn’t happen last week, so I’m going to try again this week.
