Good gracious! October is half way over. This is one of those months that just flew past with no signs of slowing down soon…
If you recall I’ll be traveling away from my family for a wedding in Missouri. While I’m brimming with excitement of my childhood friend getting married, I’m not gonna lie… all the prep work is a bit much.
It’s not so much the packing or trying to organize where I need to be when and where. It’s the food prep. Clearly I can’t just leave and have my husband take the boys out to eat while I’m gone. I could only wish this as unhealthy as it may be.
Instead, I’m busy stocking up the snacks like kettle corn, easy granola bars and gluten free wheat thin crackers. My final big meal cooking will happen tomorrow along with emergency chocolate chip cookies for a special rewards for behaving (Plus I’m pretty sure my husband would enjoy a cookie break once the kids are in bed)
This is the first time I have ever left my kids. Can you tell I’m a little nervous? It just seems like strange new territory to me. I quit my job to be home with them for the past 8 years… I don’t even remember what it’s like to leave the house without packing food, or without asking a million questions related to food and all the possible scenarios that could happen in a social event around food.
Another thing I’m excited about are the easy gluten free chocolate whoopie pies! These don’t even require a special pan. Just drop the batter on a baking sheet and smooth into circle with the back of a spoon. I chose oat flour this time to add some nutrition and sweetened with applesauce and maple syrup. The texture is a bit denser that a traditional non-gluten free pie, but then again most gluten free version are always like this.
One special note I need to mention is how these need to be eaten almost as soon as they are created. Oh, darn. The marshmallow filling becomes all silly gooey if left around too long. And transporting to school may not be the best idea due to the time of sitting and that stickiness. But make them at home with the kiddos ’cause they’re cute and so ridiculously easy. Just mix drop the batter, pop a marshmallow on top, smoosh and enjoy.
