An almost gluten-free day.

Long day.  But a good one.

I don’t know why, but  5-1/2 hours of sleep was all I could manage… so I decided to search for a GF recipe for Banana Nut Muffins for my kids to start off the day.   I;m not ready to post that recipe yet, it tasted good, but had a bit eggy of a texture… learned a bit and most of the kids were willing to at least taste it and lend an opinion.  🙂

So- I decided to try again, a little softer, after lunch– and made our favorite thumbprint cookies with half wheat and half a GF flour mix.  It was a smashing success!  (way too yummy for me to avoid snitching)

That gave me the courage to go full GF dinner- Spaghetti.  Well- we had already tried rice noodles once (yuck) so this time I bought a corn-quinoa based package.  I am not quite expert on the art of cooking non-wheat noodles so they don’t stick– I think it requires something along the lines of the patience to stir continually. But they tasted great.  So- as long as I don’t stress myself- I think we’re off to a great start.

    Glad you’re off to a good start! Jerianne loves those rice noodles—you have to rmember they don’t take long at all too cook. It is really hard to go totally GF—it is hiding everywhere! It is really hard when something just says modified food starch—might be GF, might not, so we avoid those if possible. It is a blessing that she is not severely allergic to it, or has celiac. Key thing is to learn all those tricky words—and read all labels! Jerianne was looking at something the other day that was mark gluten-free in huge letters, read the ingredients—-and it said it was made in a factory that also processes things with wheat!!! Good Luck!
