Christmas Day, December 25, 2008

We have friends in from out of state. A mom and her 4 & 2yos. Between the holidays and the new baby--it's been really hard to keep up with this blog, but my New Year's Resolution is to go on lock-down with food, get on Feingold by Feb. 15th, and keep the blog daily. ;)

Breakfast: gluten-free pancakes made with Arrowhead Mills Gluten-Free (GF) flour, eggs, honey and I think olive oil (Capitriti Extra Virgin expeller pressed--relatively cheap). If it has anything else in it--likely some kind of milk replacements (hazelnut, rice or coconut milk). With Tropicana OJ (no pulp, added calcium & vitamin D) and pure maple syrup (Maple Grove farms--one of the few that has no corn syrup and available in our regular supermarket).

Snack was Earthbound Organic baby carrots and Capri Sun 100% juice "bags".

Dinner: It was at our house. 12 adults and 3 kids. MIL made a turkey coated with some olive oil and seasonings; and lasagna (which really was for the people who don't live in our house). HER mother made "drunken cauliflower" which is olive oil and garlic--browned a bit and then pieces of cauliflower browned in that, then some vinegar and water added to cook it. Delish. I made mashed sweet potatoes with pumpkin pie spice (they were mashed with a little bit of water, but we could've used some coconut milk). I also made fresh green beans with EVOO and white vinegar and some broiled filet mignon steaks with Montreal seasoning. I'm trying to think of what else. A lot of the appetizers were off-limits to residents of the house. Same for desserts--although I had some meringues for Matthew (Miss Meringue triple chocolate and mini vanillas).

It was a good day!
