Last Minute Day-trip

Recommended Posts

My MIL called me tonight and asked me if my husband had told me we were supposed to go to a harvest fair thing an hour away tomorrow morning. :blink: Uhh.... Nope. That was the first I had heard of it.

A few months ago I would have just said we couldn't go with such short notice. I've got two gluten-free kids, plus myself to cook for. Basically we're looking at 12 hours notice.

But now, no problem. Irritation, yes. Eye-rolling that my husband didn't tell me, sure. But problem? Nope.

Delimex taquitos for the kids, fruit cups and carrots on the side. I put a bread mix in the bread machine so I can make myself some sandwiches, and cooked some bacon. (Mmmm... BLT's...) Chips and gluten-free cookies for snacks. Lemonade for their drinks. All set.

Life is good.

Yes Nancy life is good.

I still try to take something with me that I can eat if I go away for a day or so, whether it is crackers or fruit, it doesn't matter. But I at least will give the food on offer a go or a look over, and if that does not suit, I can still have my crackers! And if the offerings are okay, I can leave my crackers, knowing they will be fine for another day.

Now having kids in tow, who are coeliac would be a totally different thing, and harder to manage, and it is good to see that you have that sorted out.

It has taken me time to get here, but I think after a few months I am getting quite good at feeding myself.

Good for you sounds like you are in the swing of things. That sounds like a great lunch, and snacks.

I have been meaning to post about these great tupperware type containers that I have, they are water tight, so they can float in a cooler of water (or sink) & they will not get water in them, the name is Biokips. they are in several sizes, an oblong shape and the lid has overhangs on the 4 sides that snap down. I really like them for packing food to go, especially for a cooler. I am not sure where I bought them, probably walmart, Target, or the Container Store.

It is just me, & I have no problems or inconveniences being gluten-free, but I know it is harder with kids!!!!

I'm glad you were able to make such a fantastic sounding lunch on short notice. Have fun at the harvest fair!

Yep, it turned out great. We bought apples, fudge, rode ponies and had ice cream. It all worked out great and none of us got glutened.

:D
