Gluten Free Everyday Eats – Day 21

Posted on by .

I’m hoping the end of the weekend also means the end of my technology nightmares.  Sadly, I think I also have forgotten to snap a photo of lunch today (breakfast was a mocha-soy latte, I don’t think that counts, right?)  I knew there would be challenges to my 31 days of food in photos…but gesh.

On Sunday, July 21, I made a huge brunch for the family.  I love Sunday mornings! What about you?  Is your breakfast different on the weekend than during the week?

Gluten Free Everyday Eats – Day 16

Happy 3rd Birthday!

Happy 3rd Birthday!

Happy birthday to my littlest imp….Life has not been the same since 11:50PM on July 16, 2010 and I wouldn’t change a thing.

I saved up my calories today because we went out to eat for birthday dinner.  So glad I did!  Lunch (for me) consisted of cupcake tasting.  Ha!  Does that count?  :D

Breakfast:  Scrambled eggs with a bit of parmesan and garlic, handful of gluten free tortilla chips and 3/4 cup of grapes. Coffee.  Definitely coffee.  :D

Day 16 breakfast

(This is by far the most bizarre purple hued picture ever.)

Lunch:  Honestly, I was too busy feeding little people and attempting to create a new cupcake recipe to eat.  Don’t worry, I made up for it by eating a cupcake fresh out of the oven. All in the name of recipe creation. :D

Day 16 birthday cupcakes feature

Dinner:  (At a chain restaurant with a gluten free menu and remarkably, a knowledgeable server.  joy!)  Appetizer:  chips and “queso blanco” (Not really a word in Spanish – just a melted white cheese with peppers, etc).  Dinner:  Wedge salad with Green Goddess dressing and a 4 ounce blackened sirloin.  (I didn’t eat the potatoes in the photo…they were…ummm… strange texture and I passed.)  Water with dinner and an Irish Whiskey (sans the  non-gluten free canned whipping cream).

Day 16 dinner

Day 16 coffee

Dessert:  After some evening games and joy, we sat down to some birthday cupcakes.  (Whipped cream “frosting”)  They were yummy and spongy.  I think we’ve found a new recipe.  :D  My husband says they taste like a “soft French chiffon” ….  I just think it tasted lovely.  I don’t worry about the comparison – but it is helpful to have someone who can give better descriptions that I around when I’m trying to write things up!  :D

Hope you all had a wonderful, gluten free Tuesday!

Gluten Free Everyday Eats – Day 15

Day 15 feature

Busy day today… my favorite part was when my eldest checked in for physical therapy by announcing that “Padawan Zoe” was checking in to see “Master Yoda”.  Boy, did that receptionist get a kick out her!  :D  Hope you had some good chuckles in your day today too!

We were on the last of the veggies.  Apparently I was so fruit happy at the Farmer’s Market that I failed to buy my weekly veggies.  Tomorrow we might need to head to the market for some salad greens, etc.  But today?  No way.  Other items on the agenda list!

Birthday balloons ordered?  Check!

Birthday cake planned?  Check!  (The birthday girl wants to help make it.)

Presents wrapped?  Check!

Momma ready to crash?  way more than check!
