Sometimes it snows in April…

…but, geez, this is a little much.  Prince, who happens to be a big deal here in Minneapolis (for good reason), wrote a beautiful song entitled, Sometimes it snows in April.  This has become our mantra recently, though the song has nothing to do with snow or weather.  Har!

Welcome to my reality:

This is depressing.  Not warm enough today for any of it to melt, and more sleet/snow forecast for tomorrow night!  Instead of crying, I decided to roll with the punches and enjoy being inside.  So I made quiche!

Asparagus Spinach Quiche (made with mostly almond milk and a little bit of whole cow’s milk, and goat cheese); the crust is a pre-made gluten free pie crust.  One of the tastiest quiches I’ve made so far!

Despite the warming powers of the quiche, my mind is still firmly set on Portland and a more temperate climate!  Check out the difference, while not great, it’s a least preferable.

Three ingredients or less is healthy, right?

I wish that were true about last night’s dessert.  It has only three ingredients: lemon, heavy cream, and sugar.  What a great combo.

I made Lemon Posset, last night and it is heavenly!

I had this with a gluten-free shortbread cookie from the Wedge Co-op.  Yum!  I’ll have to find a good gluten-free shortbread cookie recipe now.  I’m envisioning a lemon tart.

For dinner last night, I made a spinach salad with a great Maple Mustard Dressing from the Wedge, and made lemon pepper tofu to top!  It turned out great!

Aaron came over and hung out last night.  He gobbled his salad up quickly.  I sent him home with about half my freezer.  All those yummy gluten filled treats that had been staring back at me every time I opened the freezer door.  Rather than being tempted, or mocked depending on my mood, I decided to give them away.  It’s good food and he can use it so I feel good about it.  Now I have room to store all those darn gluten-free flours I’ve been accumulating.
