Alaska Airlines gluten free!

 

I recently returned from two weeks in Kona! There will be more to follow on that soon. I wanted to drop a quick post about Alaska Airlines newest gluten-free option. They now have a Mediterranean Tapas snack box available that is entirely gluten-free!

All of the typical pre travel food planning occurred as usual, I had everything I needed in my backpack. Then I had to change seats due to a screaming child and an interesting parental decision on her mother’s part. It happened suddenly while we were taking off so I had no choice but to leave my pack in the overhead bin. It was also a red-eye flight so rather than disturb people I decided to buy a tapas box. I wish I had taken pictures!

It contained Late July pita chips, the best hummus I’ve ever had, dried apricots, marinated olives and a square of chocolate. After going hungry for two days last October when we flew to Phoenix, I was wonderfully surprised to find such a pleasurable option available on this flight! Thank You Alaska Airlines, please keep it up!

Super Bowl Sunday!

I know we have a week before the Super Bowl, but my husband is an avid Broncos fan and I have some things to do, haha! I thought I would share our little menu for the day.

Moose Chile Verde:

Two small moose roasts, browned and seasoned placed into the crockpot on high, add in some of last years garden onions, add lots of garlic, salt, pepper and other seasonings of choice, pour in two jars of homemade green chile verde sauce, add one small jar of homemade bone broth or veggie broth (I’m not sure which I have left in the small jars ) simmer until cooked through and shreddable

Pile of warmed and slightly browned corn tortillas

Bacon and Cream Cheese Stuffed Baby Sweet Peppers

Remove the tops of the peppers, slice in half lengthways, place a spoonful of filling on each pepper half and place in a 400f degree oven for ten minutes or until bubbly, filling is cream cheese with crispy bacon stirred in.

Woodchuck Amber Cider, gluten-free of course, for the adults and some warm homemade spiced crabapple cider for the boys.

I have to credit the idea of the moose verde to a fellow Alaskan on the net, whom will remain unnamed, but I would like to extend my thanks anyway!
