Would you please let me know when you're making this again and give me directions to your house? laugh.gif

I'm going to have some leftover spinach quiche and a salad.

i don't want to o.d. the husband, so, probably next week :P just take a right at the light and go straight into night lolz

no snow here, sylvia, so leave your shovel home!!

quiche sounds like a great idea for dinner - it's been soooo hot - do you make yours with crust and if so, what recipe?

Isn't gnocchi great? I love it when I hear of people making it. It's almost embarassing how easy it is but tastes so luscious. And talk about endless possibilities! I make it often. Last week I made it with a local spicy sausage and tomato ragout.

i was amazed :) i steamed the potatoes and they came out the perfect texture. didn't have a ricer, so i smushed it through a colander lolz

i have been browsing through tomato jam recipes..... mmmmm

Hmmm...that's not exactly what my kids would have thought as being a "kids" meal. laugh.gif

I told my son last night on the phone that I was going to be ready to give them tomatoes this week...even if I eat them 3 times a day, I won't be able to use them all. And I have only one Early Girl tomato plant, which will produce until frost.

You get all that from just one plant? Amazing. We only grow four plants and they get ginormous in size. We are growing a cherry tomato, zebra (the gorgeous green), an early girl and a beefsteak this year. I imagine they will produce several hundred fruits and I cannot wait. Calabrese salad, here I come! :P

Oooh...glad you gave me those directions!!! laugh.gif

I make crustless quiche as it's so much easier. Plus my hips really don't need that crust anyway. I don't really use a recipe. You can google the basic filling ingredients, mix them together and then put them in a buttered pie pan (I use Corning Ware or glass). I did throw in a couple of tablespoons of gluten-free Bisquick. For Christmas Eve I baked it in mini-muffin tins and they were a hit.

For me the basic igredients are eggs, half-and-half, grated cheese, salt and pepper plus whatever else you want in it. I've used spinach with Swiss cheese, mushrooms with a mild cheese, Southwestern with a small can of green chiles, sliced ripe olives and Monterey Jack and cheddar cheese, bacon and Swiss cheese...you can see the possibilities are endless. And sometimes I've even had misc. dribs and drabs of cheese left that I wanted to get rid of so have used a combination of those.

The last time I made it, I froze the leftovers and just nuked the piece I had last night. It freezes well. Sometimes I've made it in mini aluminum pie tins (like the cheap pot pie size) and frozen them. This is about as close as I come to "fast food".

Yes...now I don't have enough that they could can but I will have lots more than I can eat myself. I had a different variety last year that did not do well at all so this year I went back to Early Girl and it bears prolifically until frost.

If I get too overrun, I've even in the past thrown them in a bag in the freezer (I usually cut the top off and scoop out the seeds first). When I take them out of the freezer, I can run water over them and the skin slips right off. Good to use in soups or chili.

Same here - that is a great way to keep tomatoes. We STILL have various pasta and tomatoes sauces I made from last year's tomatoes in the freezer. Oh, and a few jars of salsa.

It is so easy that way and they don't go to waste...some years I've given tomatoes to neighbors or anyone who would take them off my hands. My son and DIL's tomatoes didn't do well this year so they can have some of mine.

Tonight for dinner...a bunless hamburger and ??? and sliced tomatoes.

Copycat "Pan Pizza." I posted the recipe as a separate thread. I'm SOOOO happy with this one!! I tweaked a recipe I found online, and it made something that tasted just like I remember Pizza Hut. I wasn't even specifically going for that at the time, but it turned out REALLY well. :)

That's awesome! Pizza is one of those things that we as celiacs can really miss. I, too, enjoy making pizza, especially with the crust that I am able to roll out as opposed to spread - it brings back the enjoyment I used to have making breads/crusts. :)

Good catch! They are basically the same thing. Some people (i.e. Lidia Bastianich) calls it Calabrese; others call it Caprese. I've seen it called both in different regions in Italy, too! :P

Pork cut into cubes, dipped in egg, rolled in corn starch, and then fried in a wok until golden brown

Celery, onion, carrots, broccoli, garlic, ginger, and bean spouts sauteed with gluten-free soy sauce and rice wine vinegar

Served with white rice

I'm making pizza tonight: one is regular(with gluten) and vegetarian with corn, black olives, mushrooms, roasted red onion and green bell pepper, cheese and eggs.

-another gluten free with cheese, corn, imported ham, and eggs and

-one (for me) gluten free with roasted green pepper and red onion, corn, mushrooms, black olives, hungrian sausage and eggs.

I also made kale chips between baking pizzas and gluten-free bread.

Pizza came out very good, so I will share picture from it.
