This is the ultimate sandwich, the easy peasy lemon squeeze of all classic sandwiches. The Gluten Free Fish Finger Sandwich - just gorgeous. I've had a really busy week this week and haven't really had time to cook a meal really so this is just convenient, simple and enough to satisfy my appetite at the moment.
I'm not sure whether it is to do with being busy or due to the weather being warm and not feeling bothered to cook a big meal. Could be just lazy but for whatever reason I've just fancied something fast.
I haven't had fish fingers for ages. I asked my son why he doesn't eat fish fingers anymore at 17 years old. He replied that he wasn't six years old anymore. He obviously seemed to associate fish fingers with being a children's food but I'm sorry I have looked of the box and there is no age limit on them.
Can you imagine if the packet said 'do not eat if over the age of 18' or 'you are an adult, what the heck you thinking of?'. No sorry I am not giving up on fish fingers. I just fancied some so I picked up these Birds Eye Gluen Free Fish Fingers from the local supermarket. I cooked them and then popped them between two slices of gluten free bread (spread with butter), squeezed some salad cream on and then devoured it and it felt good.
Yes I had salad cream without the salad - what a rebel. I didn't want anything complicating this dish, just nice and simple. So glad I can purchase gluten free fish fingers and be able to eat my all time favourite sandwich. Thanks Captain Birds Eye!!
Thank you so much for reading today, tell me what your favourite 'free from' sandwich combinations are. I might need to try something new. Take care for now and feel free to come back tomorrow for Autism Support Saturday.
Oh it's nice to have a gluten free pizza which I snapped up in Sainsbury's today. Why? That's because I just fancied one. No good for the diet but hey you have to just have a bit of what you fancy sometimes.
While picking up the pizza I spotted some garlic bread.....yippee...so pleased as I often have to miss out on the garlic bread because there's not that a lot available and I can never get any from Pizza Takeaways.
This Whole Creations Garlic Baguette from Sainbury's was really nice. Small slices but not at all stodgy. A nice dollop of garlic and herb butter on each slice and is just a great compliment to the gluten free pizza. We again get to eat like everyone else. I know it's very easy to buy some gluten free bread and pop some garlic butter on, creating your own garlic bread but there is nothing like a convenient baguette to shove in the oven.
The Sainsbury's Pepperoni Pizza was equally nice, not too big. I love my gluten free diet as I don't feel bloated and stodged up anymore so food items like this are a delight to eat again. I would feel so uncomfortable when eating pizza with gluten so there is definitely an improvement for me. I enjoy food a lot more now.....probably a bit too much.
Both these items are available in the freezer department of Sainsbury's so give them a try. Let me know what you think and if you have tried any other pizza's.....Is here a takeaway place that serves garlic bread or ar we pushing to just be allowed pizza for now?
Thank you for joining me today, come back for more tomorrow on Autism Support Saturday but for now take care and have a lovely weekend.
I went out for lunch the other day.....oh I know, a treat! I ventured out to The Thomas Leaper in Derby which is a Wetherspoons establishment. I haven't been here for a long time and I sometimes feel a bit woozy in here as in the past when I have visited here I've been a bit.....well shall I say I've had a few alcoholic beverages.....we'll just leave it there eh?
The evenings at this pub are busy, especially Friday and Saturday nights as it is a main venue on a night out in the centre of Derby so its usually one of those standing room only with a bit of music playing. On a lunchtime though it is completely the opposite, very quiet and an ideal place to have a chat and a relaxing meal.
I like it here as it's not expensive and yes they have a gluten free menu. On the main menu the gluten free dishes are clearly labelled with a 'G' and there is a pdf menu on their website which you can download too. In fact if you print it off you can take it with you. Oh never thought of that, could have all my decisions made on entering the pub. That would surprise the staff......just set foot in the place and 'yes I'm ready to order'.
It was Curry Club on Thursday when I went and I had a nice gluten free Chicken Tikka Masala and I ordered it with extra poppadoms because that's the way I roll. I did actually need rolling out after as it did say extra popadoms and there were quite a few. I did get the wrong meal brought to me at first - one with a naan bread on which wasn't gluten free obviously but they changed it an apologised.....no problem.
There is quite a bit of choice, I also enjoyed the atmosphere here and of course the prices so can recommend it here if you eat a gluten free diet. Do let me know what you think though and if you have found it a good place to eat, I would be interested.
If you would like more information you can find all you need on their website here:
Most Wetherspoon pubs are good value and really good for gluten free, you can also find your nearest pub on the website too so enjoy!!
Thank you for reading today.......join me tomorrow for Autism Support Saturday but for now......take care.
We started having goats milk a while ago now as my youngest son used to be quite wheezy with his asthma. He has many triggers for it and suffers now and again with different ones but he did settle quite a bit after switching to goats milk. He didn't completely cut out the dairy but reduced it quite considerably.
Goats Milk quite close to cows milk with a lot more healthier benefits. It is easier to digest, low in cholesterol, it is lower in lactose, blood pressure friendly and has less allergenic proteins. Although it does contain more fatty acids than cows milk it is the good fat that we need in our diet rather than the bad fat.
Many people have experienced an improved healthy lifestyle after going over to milk from the goat. Improvements in skin problems, digestion and respiratory problems have disappeared or massively reduced so that has to be a good thing.
One disadvantage I find with goats milk is that it is quite a bit more expensive than cows milk. I usually buy mine from Tesco and you're looking at £1.65 for one litre of semi skimmed goats milk compared to around 80p - £1 for one litre of semi skimmed cows milk. I suppose there is always one drawback much like the high prices of gluten free products. Some also say it tastes a lot different but I don't think it does or I may have just got so used to it.
So if you have tummy problems, high blood pressure, chesty issues or just fancy a change then goats milk could be for you. The best way is to give it a try and see how you go. There are also other products which contain goats milk such as yogurts, cheese and butter too so you can completely go cow free if you fancy it.
I have also considered getting a real life goat, not only would I have a constant flow of milk but it would keep my grass short.......oh heaven. I'm only joking.....I'll rely on the supermarket for a bit longer......unless some lonely goat fancies living with us - is that a cue for a song from the Sound of Music??? I'm going now before I turn into Julie Andrews.
Thanks for being here today, come back tomorrow if you need support with regard to Autism. For now though take care.
