Day 17 – Sunday 1 March 2015

on March 9, 2015

Busy day today; started with breakfast and we had 2 Tesco free from crumpets each – before they go out of date.  I just put a bit of butter on mine.

We met my friend Karen and her family at Palmers Garden Centre for a catch up at lunch time (and to exchange birthday presents – Karen on Tuesday me on Wednesday).  I had a pot of tea and a Tesco free from chocolate muffin (Palmers do not have many gluten free choices), followed by a latte.

Back home and lots of cooking to do; cakes for the office next week.  I started by making sticky gingerbread squares (recipe taken from ‘Delicious Dishes’  produced by Glutafin), followed by a chocolate cake (recipe taken from The Gluten-free Cookbook by Heather Whinney, Jane Lawrie and Fiona Hunter).  I did not put the chocolate filling into the cake as I did not need the cakes until Wednesday so would do that Tuesday evening, especially as it contained double cream.

I don’t do much baking so always takes me so much longer than necessary and the kitchen always looks a mess after!

For supper I cooked an M&S Ham joint from their £10 meal range and served this with roast new potatoes, cauliflower cheese (with Asda free from cheese simmer sauce mix) and peas.  This was a very tasty meal.

Whilst supper was cooking we had a packet of ‘Udis Ancient Grain crisps’, jalapeno cheddar flavour.  Phil ate most of them as I was in the kitchen.
