Hi y’all! Happy New Year! I trust you all rang in the New Year with hopes renewed, a fresh set of goals and prayers for your families! I’m praying each of my readers is blessed this year!
With a new year under our belt, there will be a fresh start on my blog as well. We recently discovered Thing 2 and I have a gluten allergy. That means my posts will be gluten-free when I post about recipes. If you aren’t on a GF diet, no worries, just substitute regular items when I state GF items. I will be posting my make shift GF enchiladas without using corn tortillas before week’s end. Some of my recipes are going to be failures, and some a success. This is uncharted waters for me, but rest assured I will continue to research and bring you the best of what I can offer for GF recipes! My love gave me a brand new GF cookbook for Christmas. My Vitacost order, with the GF stuff I need to start baking again, should arrive today. I am thrilled to dive into the cookbook and truly begin discovering new ways to eat what we love GF!
Now that all of the housekeeping items are out of the way, let’s talk food. Most of the south celebrates New Years with ham, collards, black- eyed peas, and cornbread. I always have left over ham after New Years so I almost always have a ham and potato soup for supper the next day. Let’s get going and I’ll tell you the changes I made to make it GF this year!
Gluten Free ham & potato soup
1 small onion diced finely
2 celery stalks chopped
5 potatoes peeled and quartered
1 32 oz container of GF turkey stock (I found mine at Aldi)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 tsp Kosher salt and pepper
I threw mine in the crockpot on low for 8 hours this morning. I will be adding some heavy cream and cheese at the end right before I serve. Enjoy!
Happy New Year!
