lazy yum-yums

Yesterday was day two of a terrible migraine - the kind that makes you sick at your stomach.  I had to eat something, so I spent a chunk of time looking at foodie blogs to bring on an appetite.

I eventually decided on good old meat and potatoes - my lazy way.

For the potatoes, I used Betty Crocker Potato Buds.  Betty Crocker is another company that's good about giving information about their products being gluten free.  Parent company General Mills created Gluten Freely, which offers a wealth of information, some coupons, and a store.

This particular box of instant mashed potatoes had a nice, prominent Gluten Free label.  It would have passed the Scotty test...if I'd left any for him. 

The meat is Hormel Slow Simmered Beef Roast Au Jus - also gluten free.  It's indicated as such with a significantly smaller image near the nutrition facts, rather than on the front of the box.  Luckily, the tag in Kroger gave it away.  We keep these on hand.  4 minutes in the microwave, and it's as if the roast spent all day simmering in the crock pot.  The au jus is the closest I've come to gravy in months, and it was delectable on the potatoes. 

There's also a Slow Simmered Pork Roast Au Jus that is gluten free, but it hasn't struck me as irresistible like the beef roast.

Here's a list of other Hormel gluten free products.

Enjoy!

  1. That with a delectable but clean (as in GF or additive-free) red wine, now that should chase away any debilitating migraine! What info do you find on GF wine?
