This has been a blah week health wise. I’ve been bruising really bad so I went in today for blood work to test my blood thinner. I think it’s probably just low iron but have to be sure.
Monday I took the parental unit to the eye Dr for their annual exams. Ate at Casa. 🙂
My usual – cheese enchiladas plus Papa Lupiac wanted to blog his plate too. Tacos and Chalupas. 🙂
Did y’all know the Chewy Chocolate Supreme cookie at Great American Cookie is gluten free?
New flour canisters.
Still playing around with my own flour mix. For this one I used Sorghum flour in place of brown rice and made mini banana muffins plus 2 tortillas.
It was fine with the muffins because the cinnamon and sour cream masked the horribleness of the flour. I couldn’t get the taste of just a tiny bite of the tortilla out of my mouth for hours.
Sorghum flour is definitely not for me. It smelled like grass and tasted like dirt or something worse. I can’t believe it is classified as a ‘mild’ tasting flour. How awful must the strong tasting ones be?
Some of the best meatballs I’ve ever made. I used…
1/2 pound 93/7 Ground Beef
1/4 cup Bread Crumbs* soaked in a
1/4 cup Milk
1 heaping tsp of Gelatin soaked in
2 tbsp Water
Salt and Pepper
Mixed it all up. Scooped onto foil lined pan and baked at 350 for about 13 minutes. (These were mini.)
*For the bread crumbs I used ground up Glutino Garlic Parm Bagel Bites.
A couple more crusty Rustic rolls. Look at the airy holes I got in this one. 🙂
On Papa Lupiac’s side of the family…I was born on my grandparents anniversary so that meant that I always celebrated my family birthday with them. Mema always made a red velvet cake. I was spoiled by 28 birthdays with her delicious red velvet cake. After she passed my red velvet cake came from a bakery. Last year the bakery completely messed it up so I wasn’t planning on going back there anyway but now that I can’t have wheat flour I will pretty much just have to make my own cake.
So last night I pulled out 3 little mini round pans and mixed up a small batch of cake batter to try. It was good but not delicious so I will have to keep experimenting to perfect it to gluten free. Of course by the time I finish testing mini batches I probably won’t even be in the mood for the actual cake next month.
The usual at Gringo’s after blood work today. 🙂
Let’s go with this Friday Night Football kinda tune for todays song.
Hope y’all have a good weekend. 🙂
