Gluten Free Weekly Meal Plan: June 29-July 3, 2015

This week is my son's last week of kindergarten here in Paris! Summer is upon us and so is the heat. The temperatures are expected to hit 38C this week! Hopefully your summer is off to a great start too!

Wordless Wednesday: Gluten Free Spain

I found that Spain was a great destination for gluten free food options, and I took photos to prove it! For more info on gluten free travel and gluten free Spain, check out my travel blog Gluten Free Family Travel.

Recipe: Nutella Ice Pops

Well, Paris has been hit with a bit of a mini heat wave. We don't have air conditioning in our apartment since the building is almost 110 years old, and all of our windows are the old, thin glass as well. Not much heat gets kept out with those!

The upside is that every window is more like a door, opening wide into the apartment to let in air, and even the shutters have vented slats so we can keep the windows open at night with the shutters closed an still get a bit of a breeze.

Still, there's no denying that it's hot! We walk pretty much everywhere, and in the afternoons my kids come home from school hot and sweaty after being outside in the sun.

Recipe: No Bake Tart in a Chocolate Shell

If you have been struggling with gluten free pie crusts that don't turn out right or are too crumbly to work with, this chocolate crust is a great alternative for preparing no-bake tarts.

It's also a fun activity to do with kids, since it involves painting chocolate right onto the tart pan!

I used a 7 inch square quiche pan with a removable bottom. The removable bottom is essential for getting the hardened crust out of the quiche pan for serving.

If you can find a silicone tart pan that can be peeled off, that would probably work well too. Making mini tarts in individual serving size moulds would be another great idea for a dinner party or to do with kids.
