Rainy Day Recipes

 

The weather here is dreadful. It has been raining for two days straight! I’m always thankful for rain, Lord knows we never get enough in NC, but two days with no break…ugh.

This afternoon I found myself home alone, well home with Max, but I had the kitchen all to myself. So I did what I’m sure most of you love to do; I worked on a recipe! (Does that make me a dork?)

recipe work far away

I don’t have a finished product to share with you yet, but expect one soon. I’m hoping to end up with something that uses gluten free rolled oats, is packed with fiber, and is light on sugar.

recipe up close two

What is that sugar snap cereal with a frog on the box? Rolled oats look just like that cereal to me. I’m using Bob’s Red Mill gluten free rolled oats. I still have two bags left! Remember?

Update on Alex: My friend Alex went gluten free for Lent! (I gave up chocolate) So far so good for us both! She sent me a message yesterday that said she almost accidentally ate a cookie! It seems pretty funny to me, since Lent represents the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert fasting and Satan tried to tempt him. In Alex’s case, cookies are Satan! :)
