We’re back to gluten free eating – at least for now. David says he feels better in some ways and wants to give it a little more time. Of course, he has a doctor’s appointment next Monday and will have to eat gluten after that for a while so he can be tested for celiac and/or gluten intolerance. But until then, more gluten free menus. The only thing different is that I’m trying to find more recipes that I’m wiling to eat, too. If we’re going to do this thing, I want us to be able to eat the same dinner most of the time.
Hot Tamale Casserole (NEW) (GF)
Pizza Frittata (for David) (NEW) (GF)
Frozen pizza for me
NOTE: If you’re careful, you can find oven fries that are gluten free. They’re pretty much the ones without any coatings. I purchased Ore Ida steak fries and it says right on the bag that it’s gluten free.
The Grilled Spinach Burgers are NOT gluten free without modification. Instead of regular bread crumbs, I purchased gluten free bread crumbs. They were expensive but allowed David to have the burgers.
Last time I made these burgers I purchased gluten free hamburger buns but they were so awful that this time David just used gluten free bread.
The Peanut Butter Bars are a family favorite. I made them for my son since it was his birthday. They are not gluten free but they are certainly delicious.
Grilled Teriyaki Chicken
Quinoa (a mix)
NOTE: The Grilled Teriyaki Chicken is NOT gluten free unless you use gluten free teriyaki sauce, which I did. The chicken tasted just as good as it does with regular teriyaki. And by the way, this is a family favorite. It’s awesome for dinner and then chopped up in a salad for the next day’s lunch. Yum.
Also, we decided to grill our vegetables instead of steam or roast them. We hadn’t ever done it before and were surprised at how long it took. We used one of those baskets with the holes on the bottom and sides and I put cut-up zucchini, broccoli and tomato. I’ll have to do some research on roasting vegetables so we’ll time it right next time.
FYI, if you ever see a recipe here that hasn’t been posted yet but you really want to try ASAP, email me at homemakersdaily (at) yahoo (dot) com and I’ll be happy to send it to you and let you know if I’ve already made it or not. I feel bad teasing you with recipes that sound great but aren’t available yet. So if you want something right away, just let me know.
