Instead of working outside yesterday,(rained off and on), I decided I to do a cooking marathon to get some gluten free meals in the freezer. When I am cooking something for myself that LL will eat, things go great. But I am having a harder time keeping my food from getting contaminated when cooking a gluten free and gluten meal at the same time. Using the wrong spoon to stir can cause contamination. So I wanted several meals in the freezer when I am making something with bread, regular pasta, etc. for the rest of the family.
I made a Mac and Cheese that the only thickening is eggs, rather then flour. We had this for dinner last night and I froze two large dinner portions for me to eat later.
After I got back from Kathy's meeting, I continued with my cooking. I wanted to use up most of my vegetables before they go bad. So I browned two free range, hormone free, fresh chicken breasts, diced. Then put in some of the chicken in a soup that had potatoes, sweet potato, carrots, celery, onion and mushrooms. Sent a large serving for LL's lunch and froze two large portions for my meal. At the same time, I used the rest of my veggies and made a stir-fry and put the rest of the chicken. Made some rice. So now I have 6 meals of real food without gluten in my freezer.
I hope to make a habit of making an extra portion of gluten free meals to put in freezer so I always have something on hand.
