We have friends in from out of state. A mom and her 4 & 2yos. Between the holidays and the new baby–it’s been really hard to keep up with this blog, but my New Year’s Resolution is to go on lock-down with food, get on Feingold by Feb. 15th, and keep the blog daily. 😉
Breakfast: gluten-free pancakes made with Arrowhead Mills Gluten-Free (GF) flour, eggs, honey and I think olive oil (Capitriti Extra Virgin expeller pressed–relatively cheap). If it has anything else in it–likely some kind of milk replacements (hazelnut, rice or coconut milk). With Tropicana OJ (no pulp, added calcium & vitamin D) and pure maple syrup (Maple Grove farms–one of the few that has no corn syrup and available in our regular supermarket).
Snack was Earthbound Organic baby carrots and Capri Sun 100% juice “bags”.
Dinner: It was at our house. 12 adults and 3 kids. MIL made a turkey coated with some olive oil and seasonings; and lasagna (which really was for the people who don’t live in our house). HER mother made “drunken cauliflower” which is olive oil and garlic–browned a bit and then pieces of cauliflower browned in that, then some vinegar and water added to cook it. Delish. I made mashed sweet potatoes with pumpkin pie spice (they were mashed with a little bit of water, but we could’ve used some coconut milk). I also made fresh green beans with EVOO and white vinegar and some broiled filet mignon steaks with Montreal seasoning. I’m trying to think of what else. A lot of the appetizers were off-limits to residents of the house. Same for desserts–although I had some meringues for Matthew (Miss Meringue triple chocolate and mini vanillas).
It was a good day!
