Menu Plan Monday ~ April 22/13
Hi everyone! Welcome back to another organized week of menu planning. So happy you are all here and are able to answer my ongoing questions about random stuff :) Last week it was about eggs this week it’s about gluten free tortillas. I really don’t miss anything at all being on a gluten free diet EXCEPT maybe wraps. I adore wraps of all kinds, they are delicious and quick and easy to throw together. What I don’t adore is gluten free tortillas, which are typically corn tortillas. They taste like paste to me. So dry and they fall apart so easily. I’ve tried a variety of brands without much luck. My girlfriend made some homemade corn tortillas for me using a tortilla press which were very good but you have to eat them fresh and it’s a lot of work for a “quick” lunch. So I’m hoping someone can recommend a brand for me to try that are hopefully yummy and non-paste like :)
For those that might be new to here and menu planning I wanted to share one of the best ways to make to the menu planning process as painless as possible. It all comes down to knowing what your recipe selection criteria is. You can see my top 10 list of things I take into consideration here. It makes picking my recipes quick and easy….if a recipe doesn’t meet my criteria I don’t waste my time with it. It doesn’t mean I still don’t pick some duds now and again but it has saved me from picking something completely unreasonable for my time and talents (which are very minimal in the kitchen!). It really just helps to write it down and have a list. Have you created yours yet?
