We were without power for several days last week, and the entire week was very hot. Thankfully, we had a generator that kept the freezer and refrigerator going.
Longhorn Steakhouse (at the bottom of the page you can download their gluten-free menu) – Steve and I went out for our anniversary. A number of restaurants in the area were without power so the ones that had it were crowded. We went to Longhorn and I ordered salmon with a sweet potato and salad.
BJ’s Rotisserie Chicken and Potato Salad with a Green Salad – This was an easy no-cook meal.
Hot Dogs, Potato Salad and Green Salad – Another very easy meal. I cooked the Applegate organic beef hot dogs on the grill.
4th of July – We went to cookout at a friend’s house. Most of their family is gluten free so even though other people brought side dishes, it was easy for gluten-free son and I to find food we could eat. I took potato salad and homemade hummus with tortilla chips.
Salmon, Rice, Green Beans & Broccoli – I baked the salmon on the grill. I didn’t have enough broccoli or green beans for everyone so I steamed both and people had their choice.
Spaghetti with Salad – Again, this was an easy meal. We had company for dessert so I put my efforts into that. I made another angel food cake and had lots of strawberries, cherries, and banana pieces for dipping in Kim’s chocolate fondue.
Salad with Chopped Turkey Breast and Corn on the Cob – My son brought corn home from a farmer’s market. It’s the first corn on the cob we’ve had this year. My youngest son was able to eat it without cutting if off the cob since he no longer has braces.
