Here is my food journal from this week. As I mentioned on the Spunky Coconut Facebook Page I don't plan our meals ahead, so I thought it might be fun to record them like a food journal instead. As my husband noticed in reading this, we usually don't eat typical breakfast, lunch and dinner foods—pie for breakfast, pancakes for dinner, smoothies for lunch ;-) I shop at Costco and the stores online that I have linked on the righthand side of my blog. Plus we use Door to Door Organics, which I thought I would post more about when I get my box this week.
We also eat a lot of leftovers as you can see. The soup we had yesterday is probably what we will have for lunch again today. I parboiled Tinkyada spaghetti noodles that I broke into little pieces for 10 minutes, while the chopped carrots, celery and onions were sauteing in another pan. Then I strained the noodles, poured out the cooking water and added my broth. I brought the broth up to a simmer, added the noodles and veggies, and simmered about 5 minutes more. We took this same soup camping last summer with our friend, Heather, from Life Gluten-free, and her family, and it reheats really well.
Well, I have to go get ready for breakfast, which I will also be posting about soon. We're going to a local cafe that I recently found out serves gluten-free pancakes and waffles—I'm so excited. And, I wanted to say thanks to Shirley, of GFE, for doing a giveaway of my cookbook, and invite you to stroll over there and enter if you haven't already. Have a great weekend!
