Perfect ending to a long day

Working two jobs in one day is exhausting but i am lucky because i love what i do. I nannied all day and then coached baton twirling all evening. I came home to my husband cooking pork chops and asparagus. So fresh, healthy and delicious. After dinner we put our feet up and relaxed. This beautiful moon was the perfect sight to see just before heading to bed. Always be grateful for what you have and live in the moment!

My love/hate relationship with being gluten free!

Now being gluten free is by no means a choice, but rather a necessity to feeling like a human. I am blessed that i do not have celiac disease but my body does not digest gluten well. I love that being gluten free forces us to cook and eat healthier foods. Tonight i really wanted a chicken philly sandwich, but this required me baking my own bread. If i could just eat any “normal” bread, i would just have run to the store and grabbed a loaf. This is what i love/hate. Since i needed gluten free bread, it was off to the kitchen to make some from scratch. It was so warm and delicious and for this i am so thankful i had to bake my own!

Happiness is Homemade!

The silver lining to this pandemic truly is not having the temptation to eat out. Don’t get me wrong we still get take out from local restaurants, but we really do enjoy cooking together. All our meals that i blog about are gluten free unless i state otherwise. Over 15 years ago i had an allergic reaction to an antibiotic and my small intestine swelled shut. This trauma to my intestine makes it difficult for my body to digest gluten and i feel miserable when i have gluten.

Brisket in the Instant Pot and rosemary potatoes in the Air Fryer!
Sausage, Biscuit, and Gravy
Philly cheesesteak on a baguette
Baguette recipe from Gluten Free on a shoestring. These were amazing!

Dinner is served….

Italian turkey, zucchini, yellow squash and gluten free noodles!

I will never get tired of assisting John in the kitchen. He is an amazing cook and always comes up with a healthy meal. I sliced up some fresh veggies to cook with the sweet Italian sausage. We added barilla gluten free pasta, Italian dressing and some Parmesan cheese! Karalyn ate 3 bowls of it so i think it is safe to say it was delicious!
