Today, I bought my first cookbook. While I have spent plenty of time pining after beautiful books filled with mouth watering pictures, recipes that make my tummy grumble, and a pleasant reminder of all of the cooking going on around me, I've never bit the bullet and bought one. Most of the recipes that I work with come from EatingWell, Mama Martha, and various blogs that I stumble upon. But last night, I made sesame rice noodles with shrimp and broccoli and while it was a feat to say the least, I was inspired to look into more gluten free cooking. I don't have a wheat allergy, but I would love to be able to pull a gluten free baked good or meal out of my back pocket if the need presented itself. Not to mention that I do have certain curiosities about the benefits of eating sans gluten and of all the diets or eating lifestyles that I think I could manage, gluten free seems like a reasonable and interesting option. You may be seeing more "gluten free - but you wouldn't know it!" recipes here, if I can get my act together. It's the first week of my new job (which I love!), so the simple fact that Jeff and I have eaten solid meals instead of cereal is impressive to me. I'm embarrassed to say that thanks to countless hours spent relaxing during my two months of being job free, a very calm eight hour work day leaves me in a puddle of exhaustion. Soon I'll be adjusted and I can't wait to do a DIY post about decorating my new office! It's truly the little things in life.
