Was it the crockpot balsamic chicken?

My mostly " adult" sons love that store! They have coffee and cookie samples. They love all odd little gadgets, especially any that aid in the opening or ingesting of carbonated, hop based beverages. It's also an easy place to get mom Xmas gifts as they have lots of red, the official color of gluten free cooking.

Last night we all went to Outback. We are visiting Kid 1 at college. He gobbled his steak, salad and fries ( he doesn't like salad) and most of my gluten-free brownie and ice cream dessert. I think he doesn't eat enough even though they have a good chef who feeds him bacon everyday.

YES IT WAS!!!    that is a no-brainer, cannot-failer - that recipe is a deal closer (attention any women looking to get married lolz!  if he doesn't ask after this chicken, move along)  :P

 

my kids away at school were always starved to death.  i always stocked their freezers and fridge while i was there, but they were sooo lazy ^_^ 'mama, all i have are ramen noodles'  no, boiling water is easy......  so, i sneak them some ca$h.  so does dad, but we don't find out till later the we both did :lol:

Going to make some veggie fried rice... :ph34r:

 

Edit: Oh dear... where do i begin?

 

First off, I loved the taste of that soy sauce (san-j). I mixed it with a bit of brown sugar syrup. Turned out to be pretty good. The sugar probably cut the saltyness of the soy sauce, so when i dished it up I sprinkled a little sea salt on it (I hardly season anything).

 

as for the cooking... :lol: I kinda burnt some rice in the bottom of the pan.

 

I added some frozen veggies (broccoli and corn) and cut up some carrots to toss in.

 

I only added a capfull of the soysauce. Was that too much?

 

We shall see how well this sits. I kept back half of the rice just in case my stomach doesn't care for the fried stuff. I'm hoping this sits well. I have enough for a small dish tommorow.

Kids do that a lot. They usually start at a young age too. My kids spent a lot of time with my mom when they were little, mostly because my mom couldn't get enough of them. Every time she would get them to her house they would immediately tell her they hadn't eaten, even though I always fed them before sending them anywhere. <_<

 

I've been being super lazy lately. I'm sort of easing back into cooking from my soup. My husband brought home a rotisserie chicken that wasn't safe for me 2 nights ago so we're doing quesadillas. He can use up his chicken and I'll just pop a can of chicken out of our food storage. Actually, we'll have chicken cheddar bacon ranch quesadillas, so it's a little more exciting than plain chicken ones. I'm sure I have some veggies in the freezer that I can make go with it.

 

I hope your fried rice goes okay. I know how much I wish I could do soy, it would make life so much easier. If it doesn't, I make my fried rice with coconut aminos which is perfectly delicious as a substitute for soy sauce.

Pulled pork sandwiches tonight. I think I'm making some fried zucchini cakes to go with them. It'll leave me a little leftover so I can make fresh ones for breakfast in the morning. I've got some Udi's buns in the freezer so I won't have to make arepas if I don't feel like it. We'll see how that goes closer to dinner time.

 

Nothing exciting happening in Utah other than our perfect fall weather. It's in the 30s every night and in the 60s every day. It really couldn't be more ideal. I can't remember the last time we had true fall weather here, if we ever did in all the time I've lived here. It even smells like fall, which is better than the smell of spring. :)

Sounds good :)

 

I had leftover fried rice... even though i didn't really season it (soy sauce, brown sugar, a tad bit of sea salt) it tasted so good.

 

the broccoli though, i think i had a bit to much of it :lol:

 

I'm just... happy. I can't really explain it. Perhaps I am getting close to what would be considered normal in a gluten eating diet?

 

At any rate, I'm wondering what else i can do with it. Perhaps add it to my beef soup? that would make it interesting.

 

I've been thinking of egg rolls as of late. I've looked up rice wrappers, but I would rather do something a bit more... doughy if that makes sense.

 

Hmm... do you think i can replace the rice with noodles? I was going to do that at first, then i decided rice would be a better choice...

Sure. You can use those Asian noodles instead of rice. I do it occasionally - M and I prefer rice but hub and J prefer noodles.

Last night, we were at the Residence Inn in Ft Collins, Co visiting J. We used the grill and made chicken tenders and wings with Gates BBQ sauce, potato chips, carrot & celery sticks, grapes and Halloween candy.

Tonight, we are back home. We grilled burgers and red skin potato packets, green beans with Teryaki. Trying an Eating Right Shortbread cookie with some Grand Marnier ( b day present). This is the new gluten-free brand at Safeway. We don't have Safeway, I got them in Colorado. They are pretty tasty. I like shortbread cookies. They had Mac and cheese and hamburger helper things. I didn't have a lot of space, so I picked these.

Someone had to open their fat mouth about the perfect fall weather. Guess who's supposed to get snow tonight? <_<

 

We're having do-overs, which is kind of like leftovers only... no, it's exactly the same thing. :P I found the ambition for arepas last night but ate the spares for breakfast so it's Udi's for my sandwich tonight. But that means I have zucchini for dinner tonight since it didn't see the pan this morning.

 

I made stir fries with noodles sometimes. It just depends on what kind of mood I'm in. I have a whole collection of Asian rice noodles in my pantry from the skinny thread-like ones to the super fat wide ones. I just use whatever I'm in the mood for, which is usually skinny ones because they're faster and I'm as impatient as a toddler when I'm hungry.

We had a cold snap come through. Yeah, it's down to 82. ^_^ send me a picture of snow sometime. (I still like it!)

 

I made a lasagna last night because I was able to find Tinkyada noodles. whoohoo!

 

This morning, my 3 pals urticaria, headache and  joint pain showed up for breakfast, so looks like

I am not ready for tomatoes & aged cheese a few days in a row. (pizza, stuffed peppers the last few days)

I really pushed my luck  Bummer, dude. .Ah well, this too shall pass.

 

Off to feel sorry for myself at the beach. B) lol

you are playing with your food :)  that makes me happy, too! :D i guess once you get comfortable with what you're doing, things get more interesting.

 

i was pondering using lasagne noodles, cooked partially and drained - like cook them a little drain and let them 'dry off' then roll up with stuff and fry them.  i wonder if they will stick together well, though.  i have been meaning to try it but haven't had the time (to play with my food!!  it's fun and you get to eat your mistakes!!)

 

the weather down here is still mleh - we had a cold snap over the weekend, and tomorrow it is going to be 70 something.  not awful cold at night.  i see your cold weather up there, canada, and i think you should keep it :lol:

 

tonight's dinner is red robin (yummm~!)  last night my oldest daughter and her precious (just like her mother, she is either really, really good or totally evil - she's 2.....) baby girl is with me - they are going to their new home in florida.  only an 8 hr drive from here in case my bones get too cold  ;)

 

i made pork tenderloin w/kalamata olives & caper sauce, mashed taters, carrots for sunday night dinner.

 

last night was lions meeting - i just brought bruscetta and pamela's chocolate chocolate cookies.  brought along a few extra for the Other Celiac - i was so proud of him, he turned them down initially, saying he can't eat them then he realized it was 'me' and they were gluten-free.  they sat at a table not far from mine and i overheard his wife telling their dinner companions all about celiac (gluten is a protein blah blah blah)  and at that moment, i loved her so much.  she was making The Speech <y'all know what i mean, you can recite it in your sleep!)  she had no idea there was pillsbury crust, so i made her night as well :)  happy happy happy :)

arleneeeeee, hey  what if you "pinned" the lasagne roll ups with a toothpick (or even a turkey needle thinger--yeah they probably have a name but I;ll be damned if I can think of it) before frying? they might stay together better.

just a thought, sweets.

I've seen the roll-ups baked, but not fried, but you like to be experimental, I know. .

I do not pre-cook the lasagne noodles, BTW. I just assemble that puppy, cover and let it cook for 10 minutes extra.

When I learned that short-cut a few years ago, I was all "whoohooo!"

Thanks! Safe but not pleased. It literally hurts to be practically wrenched from our home. Remember how I said I was sick? Turned out to be a big, fat and snotty cold. Still have it, actually, but am much better.

Now I have a lot of threads to catch up on...
