Being the first post on this blog about gluten-free eating, I figured it would only be fitting to add two more firsts to this first:
First first: this is my first time cooking dinner in our new kitchen. Frozen pizza doesn't count.
Second first: this is my first time cooking this recipe. I have a really bad habit of trying new recipes when I invite people over for dinner, so I usually have no idea how bad, or good, the meal will turn out. My motto has become, "there's always takeout."
When I found this recipe on Pinterest, my stomach instantly growled. The pictures of this meal look delicious. I took some of my own pictures just because, but seriously, nothing can compare to the original ones.
This recipe is made with pretty simple ingredients - veggies, meat, chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, and italian spices. No need to hunt for special gluten-free alternatives with any of the ingredients.
[Note: All types of vinegar except malt vinegar are naturally gluten-free.]
Here's the link to the recipe:
Lazy Sunday Casserole (from Kayotic Kitchen)
Post-meal Assessment: 4 of 5 stars
Josh: 3.5 or 4. He thinks it would go well if the sausage was cut smaller and served over rice. [My husband is pretty stingy about giving stars away, so I would just mentally add another star to everything he rates.]
Becky: 4. She would have given it a 5 if there weren't any onions in it.
Me: 5. I really liked the flavor of the balsamic vinegar cooked into the sausage and veggies. The bitter vinegar taste disappears, leaving a nummy balsamic flavor, which I am a huge fan of.
Dellie: 4. She kept chewing on the carrot despite making numerous faces.
Happy Friday everyone!
P.S. this meal pairs well with chocolate dipped ice cream bars for dessert :)
