The Weekly Menu May 1 #glutenfree #menuplanning
Hi everyone! Hope your week is starting off great! Well we had a blast at the annual Food & Wine Fest here in Austin. Such a great group of friends that get together over the last 10 years for the festivities. It’s pretty awesome. And there were so many bites that were gluten free it was really nice. SO much wine and cucumber vodka – I should probably detox. 🙂 Definitely having a little booch today…
I was excited to try Alcomar for the first time on Friday, too. It was fantastic. They serve mainly seafood and they only have corn tortillas so it is safe for gluten-free folks. I tried the pork shank carnitas, which were delicious. And they have some pretty great drinks, too – I really enjoyed the PEPINO PICOSO. Check out the menu!
Anyway, I’m done with school! YAY! I have a few cool projects coming up related to the blog and it’ll be fun to start searching for jobs. Yes I said, FUN. 🙂 I learned to do some really cool stuff. Like assemble genomes from sequencing reads uploaded to the NCBI plus quality control, protein bioinformatics, molecular phylogenetics, other ‘omics, general sequence analysis… So many skills for this new age of information. I loved my food microbiology class. I have a lot to look forward to this year!
Okay, so the menu is going to be short and sweet this week and a lot of our goto repeats. Always gluten free, mostly dairy/casein free, organic, “free from” and non-GMO whenever possible (because of the glyphosate and what it may be doing to our microbiome).
