Happy Friday!

Happy Friday All!!  Yesterday's dinner was yet another Pinterest recipe that I found and quite easy to make!  My daughter requested Mac & Cheese for dinner -so, the Cheeseburger Pasta worked out perfectly!  The recipe was as cheesy as I like it -but, will certainly adjust the recipe accordingly the next time.  The only adjustments that I made to the recipe was GF pasta, and sprinkle feta cheese over the top.  Isn't there a saying that Feta makes everything better!?!?

Tonight's dinner is a mystery, yet!  It will either be pizza or something on the grill.  Just may be the grill since the nice weather may not be lasting much long, and we have to take advantage while we can! 

Anyone having anything yummy for tonight that they would like to share with us all? Hope you all have a great weekend...and have lots of yummy GF eats! 

One last thing....I've added some "gadgets" to the blog page.  You can now get the blog post  automatically  emailed to you by adding your email address at the top of the page, and an option to share this blog on Facebook or Twitter.  :-)

Halloween Chex Mix

Thought I'd pass on a little holiday treat idea.  This recipe will need adjusted slightly to be Gluten Free...just substitute GF Pretzels.  I made this last year and it was a big hit in our family.  Recently, I picked-up the candy corn, and had to hide them from my husband and daughter...or there would be none left for this recipe! 

Hope your friends & family like this as much as we do!  Click here the Halloween Chex Mix Recipe

Productive Fall Day!

Yesterday was a productive day around the house.  By noon, I felt quite productive!  We made mini chocolate chip cupcakes (with Betty Crocker GF Yellow Cake Mix), put Turkey Chili in the crockpot, made a big salad, and grilled cheese (with a pickle is a must for my daughter), and cleaned the kitchen.  Not to mention we did our morning errands, too! 

We all really enjoyed the chili yesterday, and topped it off with shredded cheddar, and crushed tortilla chips.  After dinner, we had a relaxing movie night, and watch Cinderella, and enjoyed some popcorn.  Ok...back to the Chile recipe!  As always, I found the recipe on Pinterest, and have made it before...and will continue to keep in my rotation!

I'm thinking tonight is going to be a left over night, and enjoy the remainder of the comfort foods from this week.  

Hope you all have a great rest of the day, and have some yummy gf food!

Easy Comfort Food!

Hope you all had a great weekend!  Can't believe today is already October 1st!  Not quite sure where September went!!  

We had a nice, lazy weekend -but, accomplished a lot!  One of my accomplishments was putting together my 2 week meal plan -but, now just need to do the shopping for it!  Often times, I wish grocery stores had a delivery service -but, with a gluten free lifestyle, I'm not sure we'd have all safe food in the bag!  Since I didn't get my grocery shopping done, I put together 2 meals of things that I always have in the house:  Risotto & Chicken Caruso. 

Yesterday for dinner, I made Risotto with shrimp, peas, and bacon.  I follow a recipe that I found of Kraftfoods.com which is easy...and delicious!  My 2 year old loves it...and so does my hubby!

Today is a crockpot meal for dinner.  I'm making one of our favorite family recipes:  Chicken Caruso.  It can be made in the crockpot or stove top.  It's simply marina sauce, chopped celery, pineapple chunks, and pieces of chicken over rice. 

Hope you all have a very enjoyable Monday, and a Happy Gluten Free Day!
