We’re settling back in to gluten free cooking and eating, and thanks to a couple of great gluten free recipe magazines, that’s going well.

Finally, a fairly normally week for menu planning and cooking!  Yay!!! We’re still eating gluten but David felt so crummy this week that he decided to go back to gluten free (GF).  He had a doctor’s appointment scheduled for October when they’ll do a blood test for celiac disease but he called the doctor’s office and asked if they could do it now.  They were willing so he had it done on … [Read more...]

Cooking around here has been very challenging lately.  We’re experimenting with all kinds of different diets to find out what’s causing David’s stomach problems so I never really know from one day to the next what I’ll be able to cook.  However, here’s what we had last week: 1- Spaghetti with meat sauce Steamed broccoli Garlic Bread (frozen)  2- Crispy Fish & Chips (NEW) Steamed … [Read more...]
