Gluten Free Out And About

I'm not doing a great job updating am I? It's been over a week again and yet it feels as though my last post was yesterday. I wish it didn't feel that recent as so too are the memories of.... You know, I still can't bring myself to think about it too much as I can feel my gag reflex limbering up (seriously). Go back to the last post if you don't know what I'm on about.

Nothing much to report of in my gluten free world, certainly nothing exciting. I feel dreadful, not gluten related but due to my own lackadaisical attitude to vitamin and mineral intake. I've been silly. This has resulted in a growing dislike for cooking because I just can't be bothered, I'm sluggish, tired and pretty much washed out, so there's been a lot of The Glutenite's Toasted Cheese Sandwich making going on.

If you're sick of cooking, can't cook or just fancy treating yourself to a nice gluten free meal out I have just the thing for you!

Oh Dear Warburtons. Oh Dear.

Well. After an unsuccessful shopping trip on Saturday we went out this morning for things we couldn't get at our usual Tesco. We got the water (even The Persian drinks the bottled stuff as the hard water here is vile, (corroded cat concerns)) and the wine (another essential) but the DS Gluten Free bread was nowhere to be found.

We did what now seems unthinkable. We chanced another brand.

Not That I'd Want To Be Out In This Storm....

Might Skip Dinner
On this disgustingly stormy Valentine's Day I'd like to say that love is in the air but actually it's just cloud, rain and gusty wind. Still, I have my Valentine Haribo that The Glutenite bought for me (after I put it in the trolley), I'm a sucker for anything heart shaped and I do love my Haribo.

Gluten Free Club Sandwich

The Free From G Chicken Club
We had this down as a meal for last week but we used up all the bread before it could be made. 3 loaves this week and we're already out again, it's just so good. I wish you could see the actual beauty of this sandwich but as we reasoned last night, we just don't have the space to take great photographs. I'd love a dedicated area to do so, to get really creative, but were you to see the size of our kitchen and the amount of equipment it contains (a lot) you would be quite impressed that I manage to create recipes at all in that space.

One day I'll have a kitchen suitable for preparing feasts to be photographed, until then you'll have to put up with my shoddy snaps in my little kitchen more suited to microwaving ready meals (I still love it though).

The Baby Carrot Reprieve (For Now)

Talk about confusing. So I did the carrot test last week, I cooked the carrots in the gravy but I didn't eat any. Still had a reaction. So yesterday I cooked the carrots in a separate pan and just had the Boiled Bacon (with shallots instead of onions) and gravy. Big reaction.

Aside of the meat and shallots the only other ingredient (minus the carrots this time) are 2 Stock Pots and I know it isn't them because I use them all the time and this is the one remaining meal giving me problems since removing other things from my diet.

So what is it?
