Gluten Free Parmesan Straws

Served Free From G Style
Second time these have been made, no tweaks needed, many scoffed. I highly recommend these with Smoked Salmon as they go together perfectly, were I to be 'just so' about things I'd make these round and topped with a piece of Salmon, small dollop of Sour Cream and a tiny pinch of Dill, but I'm not so you're getting the basic Parmesan Straws version that we have. Ridiculously easy.

Friday Randomness

I do love our local little Oriental shop with all its goodies but this made me squirm. I don't suppose that you could really understand the terror of such things were you able to eat gluten without your insides falling out but yeah, makes me shudder a bit. Gruesome gluten, fried, roasted and rolled.

We did however pick up some Squid, King Prawns, Rice Paper and Seaweed but we decided against the Black Chicken and bumper bag of Pigs Feet, wasn't feeling those.

New recipes coming next week. Happy Weekends!

Tesco Gluten Free Lasagna Sheets

Lasagna / Lasagne
I've steered clear of gluten free pasta because very early on I found that I didn't like the heaviness of it. We gave this a go because we fancied Lasagna but didn't have any Rice Paper and couldn't find any during the weekly Tesco shop. The new recipe label gave me hope that maybe a new generation of gluten free pasta had arrived, but had it?

Isabel's Gluten Free Dough Balls Mix

We Do Enjoy A Good Pao de Queijo
It all started out with Yoki, a box misplaced (though very at home) in the free from aisle, the search for and discovery of the Brazilian section and so our love affair with Cheese Balls began. Very sadly we can't find Yoki Cheese Bread mix anywhere in the UK now.

We really missed eating our delectable Cheese Balls, The Glutenite especially. After a bit of a search on Amazon we discovered an alternative, Isabel's. I'd heard of this brand during my active days on Twitter but only in relation to a Pizza base mix. The Dough Balls info got TG seal of approval so we ordered some, but could it live up to our beloved Yoki?

Breaded Sriracha Chicken Strips

A day later than intended, soz.

It's been a long time coming but here is the second Free From G recipe from The Lovely Glutenite (first is here if you're interested and you should be, oh so yum). We intended to have our Freefromgdos Chicken Burgers but, well our chicken breasts are currently in my parents freezer due to my next to non existent memory and we only had smallish one here so another meal needed to be made.

Cue Sriracha Chicken Strips.

Methinks I Have An Onion Allergy / Intolerance

I don't know why it's taken me so long to look into this but I think I'm allergic to Onions. What prompted me to come to this conclusion is the fact that every Saturday afternoon for many months I have been visiting the bathroom frequently, I had no idea why.

The Glutenite picked up on this fact and finally questioned it, why I hadn't myself I don't know but possibly because I couldn't bear the thought of 'what's wrong now'. I started to question what common factors there were every Saturday, food shopping, lunch, some form of shellfish but the type differs from week to week usually.
