Sunday Dinner for the Celiacs in the Crowd

Well, I started first thing in the morning, and made a batch of Leek Soup Parmentier (with potato).  Great success and a good lunch!  I also made a small batch of pasta sauce to use for supper. Well, as things happened, we ended up with a guest for supper, so my menu had to expand a bit from our usual humble fare (which is usually "just enough" served up in the kitchen on our plates from the stove!). Here is what we had:


Leek & Potato Soup Parmentier
Greek Salad
Penne with Meat Sauce
(before baking)
Roast Asparagus

Strawberry Trifle with
Whipped Cream & Kijafa

Pinot Grigio - three buck chuck from our last trip to Trader Joe’s

 Pinot Noir (good stuff our guest brought)

Definitely not low cal, but definitely nutritious and delicious!  I love soups of all kinds and the one downside to spring, is that the soup season is nearing a close. There is something so comforting and rich about having a bowl of homemade soup, and nothing is better for you or your budget.
