Well I didn't want to cook and I needed to get out of the house. So hubby and I had a date night. We packed a little picnic lunch of sandwiches on Rudi's and some salad and went to the beach. Picked up some chips and salsa on the way there because hubby was really hungry.

Brat pattie (Johnsonville) and sweet potato fries. I don't feel like cooking either.

What brand sweet potato fries do you buy? I got some today at Wal Mart. Didn't say gluten-free, but read the ingredients and didn't see any. Here's hoping for the best.

I like Johsonville. Their brats don't have enough msg to bother me unless I eat them several days in a row.

I'm going country tonight. Cornbread, blackeyed peas with onions, and collard greens with vinegar. Oh yum.

I bought OreIda fries...the package is marked gluten-free but it's really hidden way down on the side (like almost at the bottom). Nothing like announcing it clearly, huh? I've bought them at Wal-Mart before but yesterday I got them at Food Lion.

The brat patties were just okay...at least fast and easy to fix. I prefer their Italian sausages though.

Mmm, I just finished prepping dinner so it'll be quick to throw together when my fiance comes home.

I made steak with a marinade of tamari, ketchup, olive oil, basil, garlic, and a bit of honey. The other-half will grill it for me.

Bought some good-looking semi-locally grown green beans to steam, along with brown rice.

They had really ripe plums at Whole Foods that I couldn't resist, so I mixed up some homemade whipped cream with mascarpone cheese, vanilla, and honey.

I feel gourmet- it's been a long time since I've been well enough to cook a big meal like this. Good thing someone else does the dishes, though!

A bowl of butter with a few potatoes in it.

That sounds really good.

My husband teases me about hoarding butter. It's cheapest at Costco so whenever we are there I'll grab a few pounds whether I need them or not. Right now I probably have 9 or 10 pounds of butter scattered in our 3 freezers and 2 fridges.

I like butter :D

We like butter a little too much at our house. Last time butter went on sale from $5.99/lb to $3.99/lb we bought 25 lb of the stuff. Thankfully we have two large freezes in addition to our two fridge freezers! A lot for only two of us, I know. We can be gluttons at times... :P

I've been nursing a broken heart so, this was dinner some nights lately. Tonight I am managing baked chicken with avocados. I actually ate a Nathans hotdog on a Udi bun last night and it was awesome. Since I've been eating whole food, I was kinda scared to eat it, but not too much problems today. I sprinkled alittle water on top of the bun and warmed it in foil. It was good! First time hotdog in a year.

No cooking here. I am worn out and it was warm here. Not hot but uncomfortable. For daughter there was leftover Mexican rice with veggies and chicken and some good Mexican cheese sprinkled over. Also corn tortillas and black olives. I just had bean tacos with cheese and olives. Should have had veggies, I know. But I didn't.

Today is my birthday, and our original plans had to be scrapped due to car problems, so ordered pizza from Chicago Connection for lunch, and had leftovers for dinner :). I got a gluten-free Hawiian(sp?) pizza... yum. And they also gave me a free gluten- free (pre- packaged) brownie--- i didn't even know they had them there! And a coupon for another free one the next time I order a gluten-free pizza :) the brownie was good!

Used Gluten- Free Pantry decadent chocolate cake mix to make my birthday cake. And coconut/ pecan frosting--- works for a german choc cake for me! :)

I wanted a 2- layer cake (love the frosting between the layers), but it's just me & DH here, didn't want a whole ton of left- over cake. So just baked one layer in a round cake pan, let it cool, cut it in half, frosted the bottom half, then put the top on & frosted it :). It may not have been super perfect, but I liked how it turned out!

And from what I've tasted of the cake (waiting till desert time for my big piece of the day. and of course, i will have ice cream, too!) it was yummy... would never have been able to tell it is gluten-free!!

On the back of the box is also a recipe for cupcakes (using the mix, of course) I think it would be a good idea to make up a batch of those & have in the freezer to grab to take to picnics, ect.
