Recently we have undertaken a new adventure in our house.
We have gone Gluten Free.
More specifically: Cole has gone gluten free.
He has been having stomach problems and other symptoms
for quite some time.
We finally narrowed down his symptoms and decided to
do the elimination diet to see if this was the issue.
It has been a bit of a learning curve for this ol' Mom
to figure out what he can and can't eat.
First of all, we know that gluten is the protein contained in wheat,
so anything with wheat is out:
breads and pastas are the major items.
But gluten is hidden all over the place.
I was making a hash brown casserole this weekend and found that
my regular brand of frozen hash browns contain wheat - What?
I've begun to follow a few gluten free blogs, but as my adventure continues
I may throw out recipes that work for us on here as well.
So here goes: my adventure into food blogging.....
Who says gluten free has to taste icky?
I love fall & look forward to breaking out my crock pot.
I went yesterday to pick up our half-cow,
so now we've got a freezer full of meat baby!
This crock pot o' goodness is easy.
Toss the meat in with a little salt, pepper & chopped garlic.
Beef broth, about a cup
I use this Pacific brand because it's organic & gluten free.
Then I dump in a container of Pacific brand cream of whatever.
This time I used cream of chicken because it's what I had.
Mushroom is good too.
Then the veggies go in
1/2 onion, mushrooms & carrots.
I don't do potatoes because I think they get mushy.
You could though.
Sometimes I toss celery in, but we didn't have any today.
8 hours on low
one work day...
cross country meet
and then we come home to dinner ready to eat.
