The Weekly Menu Nov 6 #glutenfree #menuplanning #recipes

Time for the Weekly Menu! What a fabulous and fun weekend!  We had a lovely time eating, bonding and laughing with friends at The Salt Lick on Friday.  Then we celebrated marriage equality and love at Kevin and Anthony’s beautiful, sweet, sentimental and super fun wedding! And of course, when we got home later that night Brett and I were craving pizza to soak up the alcohol.  And I stumbled upon my favorite homemade mini...

The Weekly Menu Feb. 20 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi everyone!  So I’m in the thick of it this week.  I’m so glad I worked out the weekly menus for the next several weeks before things got crazy.  I’m working on a presentation for a paper called “Human Genome Sequencing Using Unchained Base Reads on Self-Assembling DNA Nanoarrays”… and it’s complicated!  Fascinating too, but I’m swimming in the details and it is taking days to sort it all out.  Then I’ve got a midterm...

The Gluten-Free Weekly Menu Aug. 10 #menuplanning #hatchfest

Hatch chiles are here! #hatchfest So I’m making a few easy recipes this week! Every year (for the last 20 years) Central Market brings these New Mexico chiles to Texas for a few weeks for Hatch Fest (you can find them at HEB, too). And just because I have to eat with major dietary restrictions, doesn’t mean that I’m going to miss out on the fun! I really like the Hatch chiles and they are a great...

The Gluten Free Weekly Menu June 1 #menuplanning

Hello Summer! And welcome new followers on Twitter, Pinterest and the Facebook Fan page! Take a look around the blog to find lots of clean eating but flavorful recipes. I love to use spices. The weekly menus are a great round up of recipes, too. This week I’m going to try a couple new recipes. I really want to try the chili pork tenderloin and mango salsa recipe McCormick’s has been sponsoring on Facebook. Have...

Carnitas Burrito Bowls #glutenfree #caseinfree

Carnitas Burrito Bowls Carnitas Burrito Bowls have become one of our absolute favorite dinners! The pork shoulder takes time to cook (2.5 hours in the oven) but it is worth it. And there is always leftover meat because we roast 2-3 lbs of pork shoulder (or pork butt) so we can use it to make another dinner that week, like BBQ pork sandwiches or tostadas with cabbage slaw. Or tacos. I originally started out making...

The Gluten-Free Weekly Menu April 6

I love April! Spring is my favorite time of year! Our patio garden (herbs, cherry tomatoes, jalapeños and cucumbers) is looking good and my grapevine is growing. It’s a zinfandel vine I bought a few years ago and it should fruit this season. We’ve made our own wine before from juice concentrate, but I want to learn how to make it from the grapes. Right now I’m just observing how this vine thrives and what...

Cilantro Lime Rice #glutenfree #caseinfree #realfood

This is a super simple recipe for very tasty cilantro lime rice made from scratch using fresh ingredients.  I usually make enough to use for several meals. Tonight we are going to have some of the cilantro lime rice with Ancho chili and lime roasted chicken and roasted pineapple and mango salsa. And tomorrow we are having leftover rice with black beans in taco bowls. Yum! For a long time we ate brown rice because...

The Gluten-Free Weekly Menu Feb. 16

Oh my old bones are sore today #lifeafter40! This weekend we took another long walk (5 miles) around Town Lake/Lady Bird Lake/Colorado River on the Boardwalk/Butler Trail. We explored the east side of the lake and did an entire loop crossing over at both the dam and Interstate 35. I have to admit crossing the dam was pretty scary for me – I’m not really scared of heights but a little vertigo kicks in when...
