Pin It We got snow over the weekend! The kids have been waiting and waiting - we usually have a bit of snow by this time during the winter. So hubby and the kids went sledding and I headed to the kitchen for some experimental baking. I made some gf/df/ef bagels - I've been working on this recipe for a while and was inspired to try using more of the whole grain flours and less starch. The results are edible, but not blog-worthy. I'll keep trying. I also began my first attempts at sourdough. After doing some research, I put together my first gf/df/ef sourdough starter and so far, it looks and smells like its working. I'll post more about this after I produce a yummy loaf of sourdough bread (assuming I succeed).
On to our menu plan . . .
MONDAY - Today I'm excited to try out a new recipe based on this one I found at Organized Home for Chicken Vol Au Vents. Of course, it will take a bit of allergy-friendly magic and the results may be very different from the original recipe, but I'm thinking its going to be yummy. I'll let you know! Follow-up (Feb 2, 2012): Here's the yummy results of my recipe tinkering Creamy Chicken Pie.
TUESDAY - Skillet Pie - This is based on my mother-in-law's recipe. Its a very simple skillet dish of ground beef, cubed potatoes, and peas. Her recipe calls for condensed cream of mushroom soup, so I'll figure out a substitute for that. Then you put the beef/potato filling in a gluten, dairy and egg-free pie crust. This is a great one for the freezer. Once I get this recipe worked out, I'll post it.
WEDNESDAY - Chili and Cornbread - For a great cornbread recipe, check out this one at Gluten Free Goddess. I usually make a few changes, but I'm sure its great the way it's written.
THURSDAY - Baked Chicken Thighs and Mashed Potatoes
FRIDAY - Baked Potatoes topped with planned-overs of Chili from Wednesday
SUNDAY - Spaghetti and Meatballs
