Gluten Free Living | Diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2012 | Connecticut living | Mama to Jack 💕
On Monday, @mmcflys was kind enough to host me @glutengossip and @glutenfree_fit_foodie to spotlight some of their MANY gluten free options! Maggie’s has been a go-to spot for me for years, so it came as no surprise but I was surprised to hear how many of you didn’t realize they have SO MANY options. They have a dedicated gluten free fryer, gluten free batter for fried items, gluten free pasta/pizza crust/cheese buns, gluten free fruit purée and liquor for cocktails...the list is long guys 😂 It’s the perfect place to go when you want a lot of choices and just want to feel normal at a restaurant again. And they have a bunch of locations across CT so go check their website to find one near you! . . As far as food, we tried a lot! I couldn’t stop eating...I blame breastfeeding 🤱🏼 In order of pictures, we had the Chicken and Roasted Garlic Pasta, Parmesan Truffle Fries 🍟, the Blue Cheese BLT Burger 🍔, Buffalo Cauliflower, Grilled Vegetable and Goat Cheese Pizza, Pear and Bri Salad 🍐, and the GF Chocolate Tuxedo Cupcake 😍 . . They are also super knowledgeable about what drinks are gluten free! We had @glutenbergbeer 🍻, the Blueberry Mojito, and the Huckleberry Lemonade cocktail 🍹
I was excited that I went into labor on my own and wouldn’t need pitocin, but my body was doing a little too much for my liking lol Adam and I walked the halls for a little bit, pausing when I had a contraction so I could lean on him. It would have been one thing if I had breaks in between my contractions, but the contractions had been like 3 minutes apart for HOURS and the back labor was continuous. The contractions were continuing to be 2-3 minutes apart, lasting 1-2 minutes each time, and the back labor hadn’t let up for hours. Finally after 2 minutes, but what felt like a life time, they got Jack out, snipped his umbilical cord (no delayed cord clamping here) and handed him over to the NICU team in the room.
Had such a nice anniversary dinner at @stonerowkb on Saturday 🤍 They’re super accommodating for gluten free and everything was delicious! Plus the atmosphere is lovely and romantic ✨ . . We got a cheese board and mussels to share. The mussels were in a saffron cream sauce that was just 👏🏻 For dinner, I got the scallops with chorizo and local veggies 🍆🥒 And for dessert we had the flourless chocolate cake which comes topped with a hazelnut brittle 😍 Such a texture bomb. Definitely a great spot if you’re looking for a special occasion dinner! 🕯 🍽
Making my way through the world one gluten free meal at a time I made this recipe dairy free! For the rest of the recipe: 1/4 cup cheddar cheese…or more if you love cheese! (I used dairy free)1/4 cup bread crumbs Use seasoned or make your own. Brush butter onto your muffin tins and then sprinkle bread crumbs into the bottom of each.
It’s our 4th wedding anniversary! 💍 Feeling especially grateful to have this handsome goofball by my side. This past year has been the best one yet—adding Jack to our little pack has just multiplied the smiles and laughs by a million 👨👩👦👩❤️💋👨 . . Jack’s grandma is coming to babysit this weekend so we can go celebrate with a fancy dinner at @stonerowkb 🍽👩🏼🍳 and I can’t 👏🏻 wait 👏🏻 Who else has been there?? (Formerly known as Cafemantic)
But as far as what else was safe or not safe for pregnancy, I wasn’t really sure! Avoid chemical sunscreens which use Oxybenzone, Avobenzone, Octinoxate, Homosalate, Octisalate , it Octocryleneand and use mineral sunscreen instead (zinc oxide or titanium oxide) But once I stopped being able to use that, I just used Cetaphil Face Lotion and made sure my makeup had sun protection. For makeup, I really had to do an overhaul because the brand I was using puts a form of retinol in all it’s products for anti-aging!
Okay how did I forget to post these pictures??😍 This was from dinner at @rhtsouthwindsorct a few weeks ago! ➖I got the tavern steak sandwich which was a good as it looks 🔥 ➖Jack tried out some fried pickles and was fairly impressed 🥒 ➖I also ordered Jack a kid’s meal knowing he’d eat 1/16 of it and I’d get the rest 😂 👍🏻 ➖They had @downeastcider pumpkin 🎃 so what more can a gluten free girl ask for?? ➖Jack also thought the people watching was a 10/10 ⭐️
Don’t get me wrong, I feel like I’ve been pregnant FOREVER, but I just felt like I’d never get to the end There are plenty of days now where I don’t feel like going through the hassle of cooking dinner and my husband doesn’t feel like doing the dishes, so I know when sleep deprivation sets in we’re going to be SO thankful for every dinner that doesn’t have to be made from scratch. I ended up cooking some chicken in my slow cooker and shredding that to use instead of beef.
I made these salmon cakes for dinner last week and oh my goodness were they good 😍 I absolutely love salmon, so when I saw a big can of canned salmon at @aldiusa I figured why not give it a try! 🐟 And did you know that almost all canned salmon is wild-caught instead of farmed?? 🎣 So it’s actually a really amazing and inexpensive alternative! 💡 . . To make the salmon cakes, mix together: 🔸2 cans salmon (or one big can!) 🔸GF bread crumbs—I made my own by toasting 2 pieces of GF bread and throwing them in a blender. Probably about 3/4 cup? 🔸2 eggs 🔸2 tbs Worcestershire sauce 🔸1 tsp garlic powder 🔸1 tbs Old Bay 🔸1 tsp salt 🔸1 tbs Italian seasoning 🔸2 tbs Dijon mustard 🔸2 tbs mayo 🔸Optional (but delicious): a couple sprigs of chopped up green onions ................... 🟢Form the mix into 8-10 patties and sauté over medium in avocado oil (or whatever you want) for 3-4 min on each side or until golden brown! . . I served it with a quick sauce that I absolutely didn’t measure 😂 It was equal parts plain Greek yogurt and mayonnaise and a sprinkle of garlic powder/salt/dried dill. Then topped with more green onions! I have it growing on my back deck and it’s still thriving 🙌🏻🌱
I almost forgot to share about this @bobsredmill cornbread mix that I recently tried! 🌽 I’ve never seen a gluten free mix rise so much when baked...I was shocked when I opened the oven and they looked like full sized muffins 😂 If you have an @osjoblot near you, I highly recommend you check them out! They have tons of @bobsredmill mixes at super affordable prices. I think I got this one for $3.99? I always stock up when I go! They also have amazing gf pasta for $1.50 🙀 Have you been??
