The weekend was good

Sunday, September 22, 2013

It's been a pretty good weekend. Today I tried a variety of gluten free foods, since finding I very likely have a problem with gluten. I made some pizza crust for myself last night, because the rest of the fam, for our get together, wanted pizza for lunch before a movie today. I cooked up some lean pork that was rather salty and sliced it well for a pizza topping for myself- it worked well. Then I took some non-dairy non-gluten "shredded cheese", I found at the health food store just in time, and put it on top of some pizza sauce too. It was pretty good. :)
Speaking of gluten free, I discovered cous cous- made from semolina...of course....says so on the ingredients the gluten free section of the grocery store! Goodness. You have to look carefully even there!
Tonight I made some granola, but it got a bit overdone and isn't all that thrilling, lol. Ah well- it was filling!
This weekend I did get some things sealed so they'll last longer- romaine lettuce, baby kale, spinach and power greens (I think it was called), grapes, and the rest of the granola (that which did not land outside the jars anyway).
I have my menu all ready for tomorrow, so I think it was a pretty productive time. :)
Ah yes, and since summer ended at 4:44, I shall bid you a lovely autumn.

    Wow--sounds super healthy! I also got to thinking about yu saying your Vitamix is not working ............. and wondered IF you had purchased at a Bed-bath-and Beyond as they will let you return and exchange anything that you purchased there ............... Seems the company should do something ................ would it be a hard problem to fix? ..........
    I have been reading the CP book and I can see why you read 4 times cos I have to re-read stuff too .......... like the diff beween shredding and shaping ............ and figure out what I will do for the muscle part ......... as I do a lot of gym stuff .............. leg press--eliptical but is this a part of it? ............. I am a bit foggy ............ and do wall squats with the big ball ........... (but NOT lunges or jumping--in my 60's ........... done with that stuff!! ............... emoticon

    Glad you had a good weekend. I hope going gluten free helps. I saw gluten free pizza mix at the store, is that what you got? Never tried it was wondering if it was good?
    You are doing great planning your menus ahead of time.
    I ended up having a very beautiful Fall day here, hope you did too.
    Happy Fall emoticon
