Our birthday was on Monday (April 4th). Last weekend I made a batch of Gluuteny’s chocolate chip cookies as a present to myself. I had 2 cookies on Friday, 2 on Saturday, and 2 on Sunday…. and by Monday morning I had a major migraine! 😦
Katie and I detected that we may be sensitive to “xanthan gum.” We have noticed that when we eat GF baked goods we sometimes get a dull headache. I did go overboard with the cookies, and because I ate safe GF foods at home all weekend I realized it was probably something in the cookies.
This weekend I also had a brisket sandwich!
I was inspired to make this from The Kitchen Bitch’s blog post. The meat was so tender and delicious! I made a 6-lb brisket for a crowd of about 10 people, and it was devoured! I was kind of sad I didn’t have leftovers…
My brisket was on a Kinnikinnick’s tapioca rice hamburger bun. They weren’t as sturdy as O’Dough’s buns, but they were softer and had a good flavor. Also, Kinnikinnick’s doesn’t have any xantham gum in them. 🙂
And for my birthday breakfast I made my favorite… blueberry pancakes (made with GF bisquick), fresh fruit, bacon, and an over easy egg!
Well besides getting a migraine on Monday, I had a great b-day weekend with lots of good food!
