See I’m silly, do you suspect my serious compulsion? I have a compulsion for words and I love alliteration! :)
That aside, I spent the time it takes to brew my morning coffee swatting flies! Why flies you ask? My darling Thinglets can not resist the great outdoors but since mom doesn’t cook during the summer they also can’t resist multiple trips indoors for a snack. During the summer I slack in the eating and the cleaning department, I reserve most of my cleaning rampages for the dreary days of winter. Please pay close attention to the word MOST as I am not good at practicing what I preach!
The result is a summer slackin’ mamma, several snackin saps and a serious amount of smackin’ stinkin’ segmented sailing suckers!
Since I’ve been a regular participator in Linda’s weekly blog carnival, previously “What’s for Dinner Wednesday” I decided I couldn’t let down the troops so this week I don’t have a recipe but more of a slackers gluten free survival map!
Never fear though, I will be back soon with full tummy recipes since in the Northwest summer is but a passing fancy! We have guests this week and I plan to bring you my brother in law’s (Lil Sis’ Hubby) “Famous Fish Taco” recipe. So tune in next week!
In the mean time-
Gluten Free Goof’s Slacker’s Survival Map:
The first stop is my sock drawer! No I don’t have any science experiments brewing in there just a “treasure map” of sorts that helps me get my head out of the clouds when it comes time to eat! Food preparation is one area that I am somewhat of a procrastinator. I am not confident, I am picky and yet I have grand ideas that often flop (unless my hubby is helping- he is an uninhibited cook)! Sooo, it helps me to have a simple plan to fall back on and yet not be bound to!
Sounds much too complicated for FOOD! For crying out loud those six mouths are simply six pie holes!
After I have fished out my treasure map I wistfully make a paper airplane out of it and send it sailing off of the deck, past the pigs, the horses, and the vegetable garden where I am reminded there are numerous summertime treasures we don’t get to enjoy everyday! Second stop, garden of weedin where we get our veggies fix’!
If there is extra time and I want to impress the rats I might stop by the BBQ on the way back to the house and create a dish for the critics!
When there is no extra time my map ends up as fuel for the barbecue and I whip up my go to summer meal complete with Sweet Baby Ray’s drizzly grin!
Occasionally I forget the whole thing and let my seven year old create his own masterpiece!
So in case there is any question, my treasures are featured all over this page! No need for maps or compasses my husband and I have been thoroughly blessed with the four adorable children God has trusted us with!
3Sons are a heritage from the LORD,
children a reward from him.
4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are sons born in one’s youth.
5 Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them.
They will not be put to shame
when they contend with their enemies in the gate.
Aaarg, I hope you’ve enjoyed this treasure hunt, come back next week for a seriously good installment of Linda’s new and improved “What Can I Eat That’s Gluten Free” and don’t forget to visit the others this week!
