satay chicken salad sandwichMorning friends!

Another lovely summer weekend in the books. Yay for good times. Nay for the summer coming to an end exponentially faster.

via GIPHY

MJ and my aunt Karen (aka Queen) came up to visit me in ME for the weekend. Mama Jane. Papa John. Queen. Can you tell my family likes obscure nicknames?

Anyways, as soon as we got our bums downtown, we received our cue that we were gunna have a good time.

 

IMG_1487.PNGDon’t have to tell me twice. Let’s rip it up like shag carpeting bay-bay!!

We started the festivities with what other than FOOD.

AKA wine, cheese, and carrots. Swoon.

Then we hit the town for some eats and music by the water.

 

IMG_1486.PNGWe kinda struck out with our first round of bites. The steamers were FULL of sand, and the fried clams were horribly stingey and burnt. At least wine never lets me down.

We made up for it by enjoying a giant delicious plate of mussels, baba ganoush, and another round of drinks. And the fact that it is at a place steps away from my apartment means I can pretend I made a fancy meal for myself more often.

The next morning, I pulled out the heavy Ms. Cleaver arterial, and got my domestic housewife-ing on.

I whipped up some quick homemade scones using this recipe, bought some local Wild Blueberry Ginger jam, and made sure there was always plenty of coffee flowing. I need more overnight guests as an excuse to bake more. And so I don’t polish off an entire batch of muffins in one Friends episode.

As soon as they shipped off to New Hampshireland, it was time for bidness.

Chicken salad bidness. When Food For Life reached out to me to try their line of gluten free sprouted bread, my recipe creating wheel started turning immediately.

 

gluten free sprouted bread reviewSince I’m still (kinda sorta) doing the low FODMAP diet, gluten is still out of the picture. I’ve always been a fan of FFL’s sprouted breads, so having a GF option during this diet was a godsend.

They have four varieties to choose from, Almond, Flax, Three Seed, and Cinnamon Raisin. Of course I had to try them all to find my favorite.

Unlike a lot of the gluten-free breads and wraps I’ve tried, these breads don’t crumble or fall apart as soon as I go to pick it up and shove it in my pie hole.

The slices are a bit smaller and more dense that your typical slice of wonder, but I actually prefer that. It feels a bit more hardy and filling, rather than simply being crumbly air.

And I loved the nutrition stats! All organic. All ingredients I recognized. And the fact that they used applesauce in it.

It’s no mystery that peanut butter is my jam (see what I did there). While tuna salad usually makes an appearance in the lunch department about twice a week, I’m getting a little burnt out. Chicken salad is a great change up, and anything with a peanut sauce is fair game for me to devour.

  2. I had NO idea food for life made such awesome gluten free bread!! Seriously – this is an amazing discovery this morning. I loved their Ezekial bread but haven’t been able to enjoy it since I’ve been gluten free. I generally avoid g-free breads because they have so many random starches but these look PERFECT. thanks for sharing!

  3. Woohoo Food For Life! Really the only GF bread I can have (besides Schar and Ener-G *shudder*) as it has no eggs. Too bad it’s $$$ for my college wallet! I’m lame and spent every single lunch from middle school until I graduated high school with a PB&J sammich. I’ve always loved it and I actually can’t stand lunchmeat. Up with the classics!
