Big menu monday....

Well yes, it is in fact Tuesday, but I’m certainly a persistent lass. Of course – last night I made a fabulous Quail, bacon and leek pie. Tonight I’m making a bit of Fried rice – yes – the leftover ‘use-up’ continues. We have far too much food in our fridge! Wednesday night heralds for you, dear reader, the start of a new segment – Gluten Free Cooking!

I am not gluten intolerant, but we have a regular visitor who is. So I am constantly on the lookout for gluten free recipes, to ensure our lovely guest doesn’t go hungry. I am trying to make my gluten free meals to suit us all, and with minimal cost or extra effort. I am planning my famous chicken udon soup, made instead with some rice noodles I have about. I am slightly concerned about how the rice noodles will hold up. For dessert, there will be rice flour crepes served with jam and cream.

And that’s as far as I’ve planned so far. I’ll certainly update you if I try anything exciting. Food Critic Andrew’s Mum, Guest editor Shirley, has supplied me with some wonderful recipes for me to try. I’ve had this amazing craving recently for a fruit cake or mince pies of some description, so will try Shirley’s recipe for sultana cake. It looks great – and I can hardly wait till the weekend to try it out.
