Yesterday was one of my days off, so that means, cooking day.  And p.s., I am the messiest cook ever.  Can't help it.  Note the aftermath.  Usually at least a good 4 to 5 hour block a week is dedicated to cooking and freezing GFCFSF meals for the next week.  There is no fast food in a GFCFSF world.  I've got it down to a science now, major multi-tasking involved to maximize time, so I can spend some of my day off with my kiddos.  I won't bore you with all the cook-a-licious details, however, I did manage to make the following:

  • 2 pints of Blueberry-Coconut ice cream
  • 12 hamburger patties
  • 12 waffles
  • 18 pancakes
  • 50 meatballs
  • 40 chicken nuggets
  • 2 batches of slightly crunchy hummus, but yummy(no overnight soak, just a quick boil)
So all Gluten, Casein, and Soy free, 100%.  Yay.  If I make everything in a big batch, I can use it for quick meals throughout the upcoming weeks.  So, I know some of you are on the "diet" as well, or have kiddos that are, so when we find good recipes, we pass them along.  The blueberry ice cream was a great success, and passed along to me by a friend.  Super refreshing, and a bit hit with the entire family.


I did tweek it and only added 2 cups of coconut milk and substituted a cup of almond milk and cut some of the sugar.
I will be so excited to move in the fall and get a another freezer, so my once a week cook-a-thon can be once a week!  A special shout out to my sweet sis who watched the kiddos plus one outside on the jumbo slide while I was in the kitchen.

And by the way, as I child, my parents gave me and my sisters a cardboard box and the hose. What happened here...I'll tell ya, Grandparents.


  1. WOW...my kids would be so jealous if they saw that slide...lol

    the Ice cream sounds good

  2. Yup, they are just a wee bit spoiled by Grandpa and Grandma...that slide is out of control; can't tell you how thankful I am though, many, many hours of enjoyment.

  3. OMgoodness.... I won't be letting my daughter anywhere near that photo.... that is crazy amazing.... : )
