With our recent Celiac diagnosis around here, I am trying some new gluten free meals out. This new way of cooking for my family has turned my world upside down, but I am slowly figuring it out--thanks in part to so many of your wonderful suggestions and help!!. One thing, I am finding is that gluten free can be very expensive! I thought that our whole family would eat that way, but honestly I feel like I can't afford it! Lately, I have been mostly feeding my family food that is naturally gluten free, but at some of our meals I provide GF bread/treats etc for only my two Celiac boys. They are fine with that, but sometimes my 5 year old cries that he wants their waffle/ cinnamon roll etc. He doesn't think it is fair that they get to have special stuff! I know I tell him, life is just not fair, darn it! :)
Look for some new recipes on The Sisters cafe soon for some of the dishes listed!

*Notes: I like to add fresh veggies and fruit as sides for every meal, I feel like then we need less of the main dish or meat...more healthy in my opinion that way. I make those sides for the most part super easy ...as in sliced fresh fruit or vegetables that I have on hand. Also I love salads and you will find so many wonderful ideas and recipes here.
