Avery's Day
Breakfast--Cup of Honey Nut Chex
Lunch--Peperoni & Cheese Stick Kabobs on a tooth pick + Carrots & Grape Tomatoes 
Snack--Popcorn
Dinner--Loaded Baked Potato
Snack--Fresh Pineapple, Blueberries, Strawberries and a Peanut Butter Cookie

Tummy felt much better but still has lots of gas.  Didn't eat the veggies because she wanted to go outside and play.  Loved the 'kabob' idea and questioned me the cereal in a cup... 


My Day
We woke up late.  Not really very late.  On a normal day we wake up at 6:45, today we woke up at 7:10...we ended up being 15 minutes late for school.  There has to be a 30 space between Avery taking her meds and then eating breakfast.  I really need to find out if that is mandatory or if on days like this it can be cut short.


In addition to the gluten free changes, I'm also really trying to watch our serving sizes.  Serving sizes can be the number 1 factor in weight gain and loss.  I have recently been diagnosed with diabetes so, I am really trying to keep a close eye on this.  Currently our cereal/soup bowls hold 3 cups of liquid.  That is outrageous!!  No One needs to eat 3 cups of anything specially not cereal!  So I measured the kids fun character plastic ware cups I pick up for them at the store for about .75 cents.  Those cups hold just about 1 3/4 liquid...we now have super fun Star Wars and Princess cereal cups.

I spent the majority of my day doing GF activities.  I had to fill out a special allergy form at Avery's school for her to have a special emergency treat.  I went to a local restaurant to ask about purchasing a sleeve of sauce cups for Avery's lunches and then I can home and surfed the blogs...ohhhh how I love blogs.

I have been reading  A Year of Slow Cooking by Stephanie O'Dea blog and I am completely in love with her.  I love that even when she fails miserably with a recipe she still puts it on the blog.

I discovered the COOLEST salad trick in the world over a Salad in a Jar.  I now need to invest in a Vacuum Sealer.

And then I watched a youtube video on making your own almond or rice flour.  I now need to invest in a Vitamixer.

So now that I have just added at least $700 to my wishlist, I really gotta think about going back to work....

About my Recipes

We are a gluten free family. All of our main meals are Gluten Free. When posting a recipe, I do not think it is necessary for me to write out Gluten Free for each ingredient. It should be assumed.

I double check ALL labels and packaging before I purchase anything. If you are going to safely provide a GF environment for yourself or your family, double even triple checking each product must become a standard for you as well.

Also, when I am cooking a meal that I have 'created' or cook often, I do not measure. If you have any questions about exact amounts, please leave a comment and I will try my best to answer.

If I am posting a recipe that has gluten in it I will then explain that...I do still purchase a few gluten items for my son and husband's lunches and snacks. However, gluten recipes will be very very rare.
