Food for life makes a brown rice tortilla. They are delicate, but they are also fast and easy. I opened up a can of refried black beans (no beef whatsoever, the brand name escapes me) and spread it on a warmed tortilla wrap. I added a romain leaf and rolled it up. It was tasty and ridiculously easy.
I am a little frustrated with the two year old's eating habits. It is normal of course, but disappointing. We are stuck on gluten free bread and peanut butter. It is almost as if he has stopped eating veggies completely. I think I will have to start hiding veggies in the french toast again!
Last week, I baked apricot walnut gluten free muffins. They turned out quite nice.
1 can of whole apricots in juice
1 cup of buckwheat flour
1 cup of brown rice flour
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1 1/2 tsp of baking powder
1 1/2 tsp of baking soda
a pinch of salt
1/2 cup of brown sugar
3 tablespoons of walnut butter
Mix the eggs and apricots in a food processor. Combine dry ingredients well and then add your liquids. Add raisins last, and taste the mix. If necessary add more brown sugar. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 - 30 minutes.
My six year old is so funny. He smelled the muffins immediately as it came out of the oven and said "Yuck! It smells like poop." We then had a talk about hurting people's feelings and how he could have expressed his opinion differently. Two hours later as we were driving to school, he gobbled down two of the muffins. I guess the smell had vanished?! Anyway, he has continued to munch on them throughout the weekend.
It is interesting how his sense of smell is so particular when he first wakes up. My husband is programmed in the exact same manner, as the smell of spices bowls him over first thing in the morning. Sauteeing onions, garlic and curry powder is a very comforting smell to me (I love it with eggs!), but the hubby has an overwhelming desire to run and hide! His next instinct is to attack. I guess "particular" isn't really an accurate word for their "intense" ability to smell. Must be an "O" thing.
