Day Five – Gluten Free on the Go – the Noodle Box


It’s the final idea/recipe for gluten and dairy free on the go, sorry for the delay in adding this to the website. It’s been a busy but successful last few days getting the house ready, a huge trip round all round East Lothian to get a gas cylinder that fits the new BBQ in time for the much anticipated dinner outside (a rarity in Scotland), typically ending up getting one about 1/2 a mile away (always!). It even took me half an hour this morning to find the charging cable for my laptop but here we are the final packed lunch idea – the noodle box!



Noodle Box
