Gluten Free Menu Plan – Week of February 13

Mike and I have been having so much fun this week, coming together and reliving those crazy first few years of our ever-evolving gluten free life for our new Gluten Free 101 seriesHindsight is always 20/20, no?

Quite frankly, it has been refreshing to see him realize the difference between “cooking for the family” and “cooking for the blog.”  I admire his newbie “blogger” tenacity, but I don’t think he realized how hard/time consuming it would be to photograph a very basic breakfast post in a favorable manner (he is having a great time writing, but I can tell that he is getting tired of me commenting on how bad his fingernails look in the pictures…a metro-sexual he is not!).

What he really doesn’t realize is that this is merely a secret, covert operation…preparation for when I ditch him with the kids for six or seven days straight while I plant my behind on a white sandy beach (or a hammock, I’m not picky) somewhere…alone. 😀

Okay, enough daydreaming.

Keep an eye out for some quick and easy recipes (and Mike’s hilarious commentary) over the coming weeks…but for now, here is this week’s menu plan!

    Umm..can I please join you on that beach in my own hammock? If so, I better get on the ball and get Kurt into the kitchen!
    By the way, I cannot wait to see some of these pictures that Mike has been taking. 😉 And I so remember those early newbie days of blogging. I wish I still had some of that tenacity!
