      Now my question is...
      What herbs/spices do you use?
      I have found I'm okay with nutmeg, anise, and cinnamon, but in minimal amounts... (Especially the anise and cinnamon).  I can't use peppers of any sort, and no mint.  The onion and garlic powders are VERY limited for me.  And like I said in the OP I can't do rosemary at all.

      Ooh that's really easy!!!!!  (And ugh... the peel is NOT pleasant.)  Now I just have to figure out where my cuisinart went... I KNOW I have one... but I can't find it... I tried to make nomato sauce the other day and had to use the magic bullet we have (which by the way needs to be tossed its SOOOOOO broken)

      Has Anyone Applied For Ssi/ssdi?
      I'm thinking I might do it... Working is just plain too much with my anxiety.  I'm told if you have anxiety you can get it...  My anxiety is quite severe, and I just have a hard time living life AND working, and I'm not even working all that much anymore, and its not even something I enjoy.  I want to start an at home craft business thing, since that's something I can do on MY schedule, I'm good at, and I enjoy.  But with being a mom, and a wife, with my anxiety, I never have the strength to do what needs doing around the house, I don't go to church anymore because I'm too overwhelmed, and I can't keep on top of my health...

      I'm sooo glad it helped you too!  I loved it too, and yeah even my hubby loved that veggie mix and said he would have been okay without me piling meat on top.

      But yeah the spaghetti was amazing...

      Haha I've thought about pan on the sidewalk.  And yeah, I can't do garlic either, but light powder seems to be okay for me.  Same with onion.

      Oh my gosh, yes it was absolutely to die for!

      Spiced Nuts
      For this recipe, I chose sliced almonds and chopped walnuts. However you can take your pick of nuts.

      Star Anise
      Cinnamon Sugar
      1/2 tsp butter

      Coat pan with the butter then place nuts and spices (pinch of each) in. Cook on a low heat, stirring frequently so that nuts don't burn. Nuts are done when completely coated and spices stick to nuts. Very tasty! (Just be careful, the nuts burn easy)

      Roasted Veggies - As Per Suggested By Cyclinglady
      This was a very simple recipe to make, and it doesn't bother me at all.

      [i]1 large sweet potato - chopped into large pieces[/i]
      [i]2 standard size Idaho Potatoes - chopped into large pieces[/i]
      [i]1 beet - chopped into large pieces[/i]
      [i]1 handful baby carrots (or 2 whole carrots. You can add more if you like, but I'm not a huge fan of roasted carrots)
      Italian Seasoning
      Garlic Powder[/i]
      [i](I don't eat pepper much any more, but you can always add pepper too)[/i]

      Preheat oven to 425. Place veggies on cookie sheet one layer thick. Sprinkle spices and olive oil over veggies. Cook for 40 minutes. Serve.

      (Feeds 2 as a meal or 4-6 as a side)

      Just Beet It!
      So what kid in their right mind is adventurous enough to WANT to try a beet, and if they do, what kid actually likes the weird looking root veggie? Not many are that brave, and I certainly wasn't. I was one of those kids who HATED textures and VERY picky about flavor. If it was bland, I didn't eat it, and if I didn't like the texture, GET IT AWAY! (Not much has changed in that regard to be honest - though I *HAVE* expanded my horizons by quite a bit.) As a kid, I ate 3 things... [b]Potatoes[/b], and a lot of them... [i][size=3](What? I was born in Idaho and the Idahoan who doesn't like potatoes should be SHUNNED... joking aside, potatoes was a staple and you NEVER put a potato in front of me and falsely claim its from Idaho. I WILL eat you if its not, because I KNOW the taste of an Idaho Potato like I know the back of my hand)[/size][/i] [b]Pizza[/b], and [b]spaghetti.[/b]

      So last night, I bought six beets because the nomato sauce recipes I found all called for beets. I had spent all weekend convincing myself, 'I can do this... I can eat beets. They won't be bad.' Well, six carrots, 3 celery stalks, some water, and a single beet later, (and don't forget the purple stained clothes) I was ranting and raving how good my sauce was. The carrots definitely masked the beet's flavor, but even still there was still a strong taste and smell of beets... Who knew? I can eat beets! I beat the beet!

      Nomato Sauce Recipe
      So I found an AMAZING tomato sauce recipe on the Food Network website... And it has NO TOMATOS so I guess it isn't really a tomato sauce but what the hey. Its very basic, but delicious. This is what it is as a FN forum member wrote it... (Well I paraphrased the instructions but shh)

      [i]6 carrots peeled and diced
      1 small beet peeled and diced
      1 large onion[/i]
      [i]3 celery ribs (stalks)[/i]
      [i]1 bay leaf[/i]
      [i]1 1/2 cups water[/i]

      [i]Put everything in a large pot, bring water to a boil, and then turn down to simmer until veggies are soft. Once that is done, put in a blender, and blend until its a saucelike consistently and serve.[/i]

      I cannot have onions, so I took that out and added a few spices to my tasting, (Italian seasoning, salt and very light pepper) I added the spices just before putting the veggies in the blender... it was amazing and tasted even better than s'ghetti sauce in my opinion... And the hubby who loves his food, he even loved it!

      Spaghetti Sauce
      Well it looks like I may have to learn to like beets... I've found a lot of 'Nomato' sauces. And they all include carrots and beets. Okay, I love carrots, no problem. But BEETS? Thought of them makes me shudder. Granted last time I was forced to eat them, I was really picky kid... so who knows, I may like them now. I guess I'll have to try them.

      Not gonna lie though, this idea of 'Nomato' spaghetti sauce sounds pretty good, looking at all the recipes. I think I can come up with something along similar lines. (Though I'll have to eliminate the lemon in like half the recipes I've found.) I wonder how they taste? Probably a lot like dairy free cheese. If you set it apart from the item its based off, its probably really good!
