First let me give a shout out to Amy Green from Simply Sugar and Gluten Free. Thank you to Amy who has written a review of my cookbook, The Gluten-Free Diner and the recipe she tried from the book, Chorizo and Potato Frittata. Be sure to visit because she is also giving away 2 copies of the book.
What a week this is going to be. So much going on, vacation to get ready for and learning to trust things will be great at home even when I’m not there to supervise in my kitchen. I’m one of those people that are really freakish about anyone bringing gluten into my house and kitchen. Just ask my family. It seems that almost every time someone does, I get sick. I know it’s hard to understand how careful someone like me has to be about gluten, which is why I just ban it from the house. Well I hope all is taken care of in my absence. I did contemplate getting one of those security cameras that I could check on from the internet, but decided I would rather spend my time at the Santa Monica farmers market or shaking the sand out of my shoes.
So my menu this week is a mix of fun for me to cook and fun for me to explore in different cities. I hope to share next week some of the great photos of my food travels. I am hoping it is not as hot there as it has been here.
For those of you that missed my stay cool and happy treat, here it is. Take a lime Popsicle, dip it into Tequila, then roll it around in your favorite Margarita Salt. We ran out of the popsicles so I’m going to make my own with my limes and my vitamix. Not sure exactly but I’ll let you know how they turn out!
