Eating gluten free is getting old, and I still have at least two more weeks to go before I can say I've given it a fair shot. I've had to get creative when my resolve starts to waver. Making something new look appetizing helps a lot. This was dessert the other night, made with a gluten free graham cracker crust I found at the Food Lion down the road:
That's cheesecake flavor Jello pudding pie with fresh strawberries on top. It looks way better than it tasted!
The berries are out of season supermarket specimens that had very little taste. The pudding was okay, but I would have preferred plain vanilla or banana crème, since it seemed weird to have a cream cheese flavor without the true richness of cream cheese. You know? And the crust was okay taste wise, like a normal graham cracker crumb, but it didn't hold together well for slicing.
All in all, a really lackluster pie. It was pretty, though!
I bought a gluten free chocolate brownie mix to try tonight. I'm hoping it turns out better than the pie!
I'll report back tomorrow.
