Beach Bum Snack Kit Gluten Free Style

The Thinglets and I along with my best friend and her girls spent a good part of the week here…


doing this…


visiting with friends…


and this…


The water is still quite cool at around 60 degrees but oh so refreshing!


Even the Bubba had his own water slide…


One of the hardest things about eating gluten free has been finding quick and easy snack foods.  You know, on the go food, ready made, throw in your picnic bag kinds of foods… 


Popcorn is a winner with all the kids.

Sometimes I throw in fruit snacks, nuts (be careful with trail mix it is often manufactured where they process wheat), larabars etc.  Here is what I had in my survival kit this week…

Popcorn and rice cakes, with sunflower butter and/or tuna (the bag kind would have been better but the can was free this time), apples, cheese sticks (eat them 1st, they melt) lots of water and honest kids organic fruit juice (found recently at Wal Mart-my necessary evil).  Don’t forget the sunscreen and you will be set for a day on the lake, or at the park!


This has been another recipe for the “What’s for Dinner Wednesday Blog Carnival” Hosted by the Gluten Free Homemaker. Thanks for stopping and check out more great ideas here.

Sourdough Update

Many of you have been checking back for results on my sourdough creation. At the moment it is still a science experiment, but a happy, bubbly experiment. Never fear, recipes will be here! I did make a beautiful, moist and delicious loaf of sourdough using yeast and a myriad of other ingredients but I'm still trying to create something more user friendly. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a starter on the counter that you could add 4 things to and have a loaf of bread by dinner? Mmmm! Attempt #1 - rose well but resulted in a dense chewy blob Attempt #2 - rose ok but was thin and lifeless then fell and another dense (not so chewy) blob Attempt #3 - to the dogs! Attempt #4 - A sourdough pancake success see post under what's for breakfast gluten-free goof? Ongoing - I've tried several more times and am going to try a completely different approach on the bread starting this week. (Mar 18). My sourdough is still happy on my counter and it makes great pancakes but it's a lot of work just for pancakes. Keep checking! April Update: She is still kickin and I'm still workin on a yeast free, gluten free sourdough loaf! May Update: My sourdough "pet" has been dried and retired until next baking season. I've traded her in for a hotter model, the BBQ! :)
