Yum Yum!

Keeping our eyes open for new (to us) Gluten Free goodies when out and about is something we're very used to these days.  Luckily, there are far more options to be seen and found than when we first started on our gluten free adventure.  So, when we were in Marks and Spencer last week, it was great to find some Gluten Free Breaded Cod Fillets and then, even better, a Hot Chocolate Fudge Pudding (in the desserts cabinet) that was marked as gluten free. This would make our meal for the day much easier.

Having checked up on the products online when we returned home, we found the cod fillets are available from the 'M&S Food to Order' service.  Even better, M&S now offers 28 products from its Gluten Free range to order online and collect in store via its Gluten Free Foods to Order page.  This is something we didn't know about but, seeing as Sous Chef J likes to know what to expect and is keen on "planned surprises" this is a service we will be making use of in the future!

Once we got home, we cooked the cod fillets in the oven, as directed, and also made some of our Spicy Potato Wedges to accompany them together with peas and sweetcorn.  The cod was succulent and tasty and it was a simple meal solution for us.

Having baked the Hot Chocolate Fudge Pudding in the oven at the same time as the cod and potatoes, we allowed it to cool slightly whilst we ate our version of 'cod and chips'.  The now-not-so Hot Chocolate Fudge Pudding was served in wedges with clotted cream as our dessert.  It was VERY filling indeed.  With this in mind, the remaining half of the pudding was allowed to cool completely, before being stored in the fridge and used as coffee-time accompaniment the next day.
Whilst in store, we also picked up the M&S Christmas & New Year Foods to Order booklet (we like to be organised)... and were delighted to see how many Gluten Free offerings it contains!  We're each marking up a favourite food item and will see whether or not Father Christmas manages to place an order for us ;-)
