Birthday Cupcakes

Matt helped me make Strawberry Cupcakes for my birthday.
 On their own the cupcakes were disappointing.   Once frosted they greatly improved. 
 My kiddos liked them!

(or fresh zucchini, sliced and roasted)

1 can chickpeas

green olives, pitted and sliced

Chicken Salad and Homemade Tortillas

Abigail is always a big help in any endeavor.  We used this recipe from Gluten Free Cooking School to make gluten free tortillas.  Abby rolled all but one out and put them in the pan. Matt cooked chicken for me and then I added sliced grapes, chopped celery and onion along with Most Things Free Mayonnaise
