Little known fact that one of us in the house is intolerant to gluten. It's not been diagnosed as full on Coelliac disease but a gluten free diet certainly helps.
So every so often I go all out to try and cook gluten free meals for a week.
If you've tried Gluten free meals, you will understand how a) difficult and b) monotonous this is. Gluten free food is typically dry and the processed food often tastes metalllic. Don't get me wrong there are wonderful gluten free foods out there such as Warburtons new Gluten Free Bread Range and the Tesco Free From Range is very good. But it really is trial and error in finding the good stuff.
So this week, we will be eating:
Slow Cooked Gluten Free Hot Pot
Chicken and Mushroom Pie with Mash Topping
(No great skill required on this one - just use gluten free gravy mix)
Gluten Free Chillli Con Carne with Rice
Tesco Free From Fish Fingers, chips and home made mushy peas (why? cos the tinned ones can have gluten in)
It'll all go Pete Tong with a Takeaway!!
