Happy Birthday, schmamy!

Charla, a gf pizza crust that's "not too bad" is worth knowing about. Share the recipe?

Tonight I think I'll make spaghetti with meat sauce and roasted veggies. Spaghetti squash instead of pasta for me, on the side for anyone else who wants it. Last night was quick pepperoni pizzas using the frozen crusts from Trader Joe's, regular and gf.

Well, this is going to be a little complicated.

I originally made the recipe with Arrowhead 1 to 1 flour a few weeks ago and really liked it. Last night, I didn't have enough of that flour but I had the building blocks for the gum free flour blend if you scroll down on this website. She only gives measurements in percentages. So I estimated the amounts to be 2/3 cup of white rice flour, scant 1/4 cup potato starch, scant 6 tsp tapioca starch. You would have to at least triple it to make enough for the pizza dough recipe. Or you could buy a one to one flour that you like.

Then I used this pizza dough recipe although I don't have the fancy shmancy pan they talk about so my crust didn't come out crisp and browned like the pic. The crust didn't roll out. I patted it piece by piece onto my pizza pan. I pre-baked the crust for about 10 mins in a 400 degree oven before adding any toppings. Then because I baked two large pizzas, I bake them for 10 mins and then switch racks in oven and bake for 8 mins more. I would say the crust is kind of like a dense biscuit texture. But it is much more palatable than any I've eaten so far.

This flatbread makes a great GF crust: http://www.pennilessparenting.com/20...t-bread-i.html

I just use my homemade baking mix and then add a little extra xanthan.

I assigned my 13 year old daughter to meal planning and dinner prep yesterday. The only restriction was that it had to include a veggie.

She made fettucine alfredo with raw veggies and dip on the side.

went super quick and easy for dinner tonight. Used up a variety of things i had on hand. it's a skillet dish with hamburger, thickened slightly with broth and spices, mixed frozen veggies, and leftover spaghetti squash. Served over rice for the kids and zucchini noodles with fresh diced compari tomatoes for the adults with finer palates.

This is also a part of my "use up existing food resources" challenge from another thread. So double win!

Leftovers from pot roast night. I wish I could have done shepherd's pie, but no energy for that.
