What a week! The past five days sure were a whirlwind, but it was great to spend some of that time with family. Wednesday was busy preparing for the big day. The big day started with a traditional 4 mile race and then the big meal. Friday = Black Friday. We left the house at 4:20 AM and returned almost 12 hours later. Phew. I need a vacation from my weekend!
Turkey Tip: Consider stuffing your turkey with cut oranges to keep the meat tender and moist.
I had an unfortunate run-in with gluten at a restaurant on Friday at lunch time. Not only was I almost immediately quite sick, but it has taken the better part of the weekend to feel like myself. Not only is getting sick from gluten frustrating, but I am sad because I thought I could trust this particular restaurant. My step dad, Joe, and I shared a meal and he didn’t get sick, so I have no doubt that it was gluten that made me so sick. There is always a risk when eating out on the gluten-free diet and I am fortunate that I don’t often have issues like the one I experienced on Friday. Even more reason to re-evaluate my list of safe gluten-free establishments.
Monday – Spaghetti (brown rice pasta from Tinkyada) with Italian sausage marinara and salad
Tuesday – Tacos with soft corn tortillas, black beans, corn and salad
Wednesday – Burgers with sweet potato puffs and salad
Friday – Make your own pizza and salad
Saturday – Take-out or breakfast for dinner and fruit salad
Week in Review
Have a great week!!
