The Professor and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary last month; and while we don’t normally celebrate the usual ‘Hallmark greeting card’ days like Valentine’s day et al, we do plan something special for our anniversary. It’s not that we poo-poo celebrations, it’s just that we seem to celebrate each day we have with one another – taking the time to sit on the deck watching the birds at our feeders, listening to a piece of music or sipping coffee while watching a sunrise in complete silence – those are moments worth celebrating throughout each day, each month throughout the year.

GLUTEN-FREE PIZZA WITH SAUSAGE, CREAM AND SCALLION

Making the switch to a gluten-free lifestyle hasn’t been the trauma it could have been; I say that because most of the challenge in being gluten-free comes in the form of baked goods and I didn’t bake that often. I mean, I certainly never made it a regular habit to bake a loaf of bread, doughnuts, croissants or puff pasty – but making a great gluten-free pizza was the one food I craved most.

Musical pairing – Take It To The Limit by Eagles

I laugh whenever I make this salad because the truth of the matter is this: it’s the only recipe both of my sons have specifically asked me for from their childhood. I’m certain it’s not a reflection on my cooking back in the day because I’ve always been a fairly decent cook. My sons ate well, we didn’t eat out in restaurants often as it was just too expensive – and yes, I did indulge them in a McDonald’s Happy Meal more often than I should have (they were far more interested in the ‘prize’ than the meal itself).
