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.

Glad the hotdog worked out and I hope the heart's on the mend. :)



Thank you, I appreciate it!

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.

Something with chicken and potatoes....I haven't decided yet! I'm trying to clean out my cupboards and cabinets for a move so we will also have some canned pineapple or canned manderine oranges. I also need to cook some dried pinto beans but we just had red beans and rice last night so I'm trying to space out my beans... :P

Mmmmm...pineapple and mandarin oranges spell out ambrosia (if you like coconut, etc.). When do you move again?

End of this month. I thought of Ambrosia but I'm not sure how to make it dairy and soy free. We often do just mix up canned fruit with fresh or frozen though and make fruit salad. I also have frozen strawberries and frozen blueberries to eat down. hmmm...maybe I'll just skip the chicken tonight and make mixed berry pancakes...Then again I need at least one more day of leftovers to send with hubby to work tommorrow. Some type of Hawaiian chicken with the pineapple is a possibility too. Sometimes I have so many ideas rolling around in my head and everything sounds good to me I can't decide! :D

Please refresh my memory - are you are moving from a townhouse to a house? Will you have room for a grill outside?

Oh, yes. I had forgotten about dairy/soy free in ambrosia. I know what you mean about so many ideas rolling around in your mind! Hawaiian chicken sounds delicious, too. When I cook I also plan ahead for leftovers to send with my husband to work. Sometimes his lunches are better than mine! :D

We are in a tiny apartment in the city moving to a townhouse (still in the city but a step up and a better location). We will be allowed to have a grill there and we even bought one already (shh! don't tell my landlord--we didn't buy a propane tank and are keeping it in the box until the move ) since they were on sale for the fourth of July here. I'm very excited about grilling things all throughout August and September (and probably even in October and November since we don't have a heavy winter here in the South) once we move. Anyway, I'm trying to clear out my pantry and my chest freezer especially to make the move easier. My pantry is a stand alone cabinet that I have also been using for a microwave stand since I have a tiny galley kitchen in this little apartment. I want to get rid of the cabinet before the move since my new place has a pantry closet and nowhere to put the cabinet. So I'm trying to eat it down as much as possible. Sometime around next week I will list it on craigslist as free to whoever can come get it. It's in good condition but it is particle board and has some scratches. I just want to get as as much out of it as possible. I have a bunch of canned goods that I keep for the hurricane season emergency stash. I find I hardly ever eat canned stuff however. I prefer fresh or frozen if it has to be preserved. So we'll be eating a lot of canned fruit, canned green beans, canned corn, tuna, toamtoes, chickpeas, and beans just to eat them up. I have a bunch of corn tortillas in my freezer too so we will probably have several interesting nacho/taco meals with the beans. I like to make corn chips in the oven from the corn tortillas and bean dips/hummus to dip it in. A lot of our meals will be snacks it looks like.

Well I decided to do Strawberry Buckwheat pancakes with blueberry maple syrup, turkey bacon and eggs. Looked in the fridge and saw that we had a half package of un-cooked turkey bacon from the weekend and I don't want it to go bad. We also have about 4 dozen eggs so I might as well use those up. The perfect excuse to make Strawberry pancakes. :) <---We really need a drooling or yummy emoticon.
