Here are some gluten free lunch ideas.

I haven't seen this in our stores.  I'll have to look for it.
This sounds good.


These all seem like something my son would like too.


Gluten Free Meal Ideas - Corndog Muffins.

My son and I have not been pleased with any of the gluten free hamburger or hotdog buns that we've bought so we've looked for alternatives.  One thing I do is buy a gluten cornbread mix ( my favorite is Pamela's), mix as directed and add half of a gluten free hot dog to each muffin.  I use Bar-S hot dogs because they're cheap and I know they are gluten free.

I'm trying to enter this in a gluten free carnival on The Gluten Free Homemaker.

Mac and cheese - gluten free.

Last night I made the gluten-full kids of mine mac and cheese and it smelled so good that I attempted to make myself some too.  I used this rice and flax seed based penne pasta from Hodgson Mills that I had in the pantry and guess what?  It was GOOD.  I haven't had mac and cheese in 2 1/2 years so this was a treat.  I really do not feel deprived on this gluten free diet!


What did we have for dinner today?

Impossibly Easy Taco Pie.  Oh, my goodness, it was yummy.   It helps for those of us who no longer eat flour tortillas.  Corn tortillas are okay and crunchy taco shells are okay, but this really hit the spot with the flour-tortilla-like top crust.  I used a gluten free baking mix that I had at home instead of Bisquik.  I am also going to try some of the other pies on that site.  They all look good. 

Enjoy this impossibly easy taco pie recipe made using Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix and Old El Paso® chopped green chiles that are ready in just 50 minutes – perfect for a dinner.
