Ashley has been asking for Daddy at therapeutic riding every week for the last month. So yesterday I brought him with us, plus Ginger and Zoe. We told her that everyone was coming at dinner the night before. She lit up and listed all of the things she was going to show them: “Walk on!” “I ride the horse!” “Put him away!” and so forth, eyes glistening. It was adorable. Then yesterday morning she completely beamed as we all watched her riding class attentively. Ginger rode on the new swing, which is next to the new raised garden, perfectly designed to be wheel chair height. So exciting to see all the progress there
In other news, Zoe recently showed me a gluten-free recipe that she had pinned, called something like, “mac-n-cheese muffins.” It was a cross between mac-n-cheese and lasagna, baked in a muffin pan. Toooootally appealing to kids She asked me if I would make them for her with Cappello’s grain-free noodles, so I did. And they were really good, but I lost the recipe. Don’t worry, this is the new and improved version: 2.0 if you will
I snapped (spunkycoconut1) about making this, and joked that I was temped to pat myself on the back that I had “gotten it on the first try,” but that’s not really true. I simply used my Cashew “Cheese” Base from Easy Paleo Meals. The Cashew “Cheese” Base is used for all kinds of recipes in the book, and no one who eats dairy ever even knows the difference! It’s creamy and delicious, and totally satisfies the need for cheese in baking. You can see my book reviews using this cheese base HERE.
I made this pizza casserole in no time. The “crust” is pepperoni. Ha! It’s totally optional, but I think it’s fun.
