I’m Pat’s husband, Al. From time-to-time Pat mentions me on her blog. So, you may have heard of me… or not.
Anyway, Pat has asked me to write up the results of the “Major Frustrations” Survey which we recently conducted on the ElegantlyGlutenFree.com website as well as on Facebook. So, here it goes…
The purpose of the survey was to…
It’s important to know about safe foods, so I’m adding a “snapshot” list of my pantry. It is not an all-inclusive list. It’s a list of what I might have in my gluten-free kitchen on an average day. My hope is that you can use it for ideas and direction in your kitchen.
Navy beans are one of our favorites here…well, especially Al’s favorites. He likes them with just about anything…in a salad, as part of a main dish or as a side in a main meal. He likes them in many combinations, but most of all, he likes them in soup.
Coming home hungry to cook dinner is a real bummer… But, it gets lots better, real fast, if you can do it fast like this easy chicken dinner.
And, if friends are joining you too, you will want it to be especially good, but without a lot of fuss, even if you do have celiac disease.
My husband and I shared this gluten-free meal with some friends and found it all of those – quick, easy, and not a lot of fuss. I started it cooking and then was able to visit with our friends while it finished and the kale with minced garlic steamed. I thought that it was yummy and I’d bet you will too!
Snacks are always popular around my house, sometimes more so than meals! Gluten-free snacks that my husband likes can be especially hard to find, so when we have one that we both like, like these redskins, I take note. Don’t tell him but these are also much healthier than many of his favorite snacks. I recently served them with some carrot and celery sticks on the side – he was well on his way to a whole day’s worth of veggies before he even got to dinner!
