Belated Happy New Year

After you have been away from a blog for a while, it is hard to know the best way to come back into the rhythm of posting. What should be the first thing to say? Hello?

Today being gluten free was especially hard. On Friday night, my daughter accidentally dropped a bottle of Tabasco sauce onto our induction cooktop and the glass cracked (bottle unscathed, imagine). After searching for a replacement and many, many dollars later, we will not have a new one installed until Tuesday. Since breads and gluten free carbs have also been tough on me lately, as well as large portions of rice – they also bring fatigue – and we don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars eating out in the meantime, it is hard to come up with lunches that are appealing to me without a cooktop (unless I heated up the entire oven). I made quinoa in the microwave, which was kind of a disaster but I ate it anyway. Makes you appreciate what you do have, even as you know what is missing. At least we have a grill, so we were able to make a tasty dinner. I always worry about a true emergency, but I guess a can opener and tuna fish will need to be my salvation.

So, I’ll be back again with more tales about great food and the whole (corn) enchilada, now that I have said hello.

Be well.

    Ann Marie, I did not know the glass on cooktop is breakable. That is news to me!

    • I never thought it would be either! I guess the glass bottle hit it just in the right spot to cause a nick. We were worried it would spread or render the whole cooktop unsafe. We have a new one now and are very happy with it. A worthwhile investment despite that small risk.
