Today was busy but fun. Between morning errands and whatnot, I had a plan for lunch, etc. None of which worked out. Ha! Typical for my planning some days. When we got to where we were going to eat lunch/play date, the cafe had run out of all gluten free options (seriously… they had carrot sticks left). I was hungry! Ah well.
I had better get myself to the market tomorrow. I am craving a huge salad and we only had a head of broccoli in the house. I saved some to make some broccoli slaw for lunch tomorrow – *just in case* my brilliant plan for tomorrow also fails me.
Breakfast: I thought I’d try a boxed mix for gluten free scones before. While I scoffed at the ingredients list, the “Meyer Lemon Scones” had my taste buds,so I totally splurged. ($6.79/box!) I whipped up the scores this morning. They were decent (but not a lot of flavor to them….I would have been very hard pressed to call them “lemon scones”) when they were hot. However, once cool? I was bummed. (PS. My DH saw them on the counter when he got home for lunch and sent me a text. He wondered why I had made “vanilla cupcakes in blotches” Ha!)
Thank goodness for raspberry jam. Now if only I had some clotted cream. Breakfast (with the warm version of the scone) would have been decadent. The coffee was perfect.
Lunch was a total bust. My girls at the carrot sticks I was offered because they were hungry. I knew I could make some scrambled eggs when we got home. So that’s what my lunch (at 2PM) ended up being: scrambled eggs with parmesan and garlic, a yellow peach (it was sour!) and water.
Dinner: steamed brown rice, steamed broccoli and a little tilapia. (All made in the rice cooker again…. I think I’m liking this trick of cooking in the rice cooker!). Honestly, the fish I made the other day was better. This one didn’t marinate long enough to fully develop much flavor and I think I used a little too much lemon. DH ate several servings so it was at least decent enough for that. Quite likely, though, he was just hungry. LOL
Snack: Tonight I am munching on some tortilla chips (the ones I love to eat with my scrambled eggs) and some water.
Hope you had a great day as well.
-Happy Gluten Free Eats!
