Its Heating Up!

5 posts in this topic

I am trying to make a list for my first gluten-free grocery shopping experience and all I can think of is, "Dang, I have to cook in this heat?" :(

I want to eat as much naturally gluten-free food as possible, and things that will help me begin to heal my body. What do you like to eat when the weather heats up??

Anything grilled. I will grill veggies and meats...fruit if I can find peaches.

I grill a lot of meat then chop for a salad. I hate salads in the winter, love them in the summer. I like wilted salads - grill veggies and meats and make a hot dressing (mmmm bacon grease rules) then toss with salad greens.

Fajitas or skirt steak with cold sauces like chimichurri.

I'll break out the crock pot because it's less hot than the oven.

Egg salad. Yum.

Shrimp and rice salad.

Cold fruit salads - mixed melons. Yogurt and stone fruit and honey and almonds....

Figs. Figs. Figs. Fresh figs. Figs and bacon. Figs and goat cheese.

AND MARGARITAS!!!!!!

87 degrees F here today, omg! A few days ago there were freeze warnings in the overnight hours. It's crazy. And I don't have my a/c in the window yet, I don't usually get it put in until the end of May.

I knew it was going to heat up, so I did a bit of cooking over the last couple of days, making some flat bread, boiled a few eggs and last night I cooked a bunch of peeled red potatoes in my pressure cooker. It was the first time I've used it for that, and they cooked perfectly in 12 minutes -- I'm always using the pressure cooker for potato salad in the future.

So today's menu was / will be (going to prepare dinner in a few minutes...)

Maple buckwheat flakes cereal for breakfast, celery with peanut butter for a snack, then some potato salad because I was still hungry. I guess it was more a late lunch than a snack.

Dinner will be a turkey & tomato sammich. Dessert will be a couple of Pamela's ginger snap cookies.

This will be my first summer gluten-free, so I'll take notes from y'all for more good ideas!

Cold sesame noodles!

Cook rice pasta (spaghetti-style), rinse in cold water, and set aside.

Sauce:

Mix 4T peanut butter with 4T of sesame oil.

Add:

2T minced garlic

4T sliced scallions (or use onion and garlic powder to taste)

6 teaspoons of sugar

1/2 c white or rice vinegar

up to 1 c gluten-free soy sauce (I think 1 c is too much, I like my sauce thicker)

Top a plateful of noodles with scrambled egg, strips of chicken or turkey, and strips of cucumber, pour on some of the sauce. Hot sauce optional.

But you can throw any leftover veggies or meat in with this sauce, it's versatile. And the only cooking is the noodles.
