Cook-O-Rama

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.
