The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Told my hub it was " David from Ireland's " recipe & he got excited about it cause every recipe we have tried has been great.

We love David's stuff too. I took that oven risotto recipe and have made it with the chicken, without as a side dish, and added spinach, shredded carrots, a little garlic, and more cheese for a really yummy main dish. Using veggie broth and simply omitting the chicken (maybe subbing mushrooms) would make it a nice vegetarian meal.

Tonight however, it's going to be pizza using the GFP French Bread Mix for the crust and salad.

Are you putting fresh spinach or frozen in it? At the beginning or after oven time? I have had some bad experiences with over cooking fresh spinach in things.

This was so good--I started the onions in the olive oil and then added the shredded fresh carrot (about 2). A few minutes later I threw in a box of frozen chopped spinach that I had microwaved for 7 minutes. I let all that saute together for a couple minutes, added the rice, then the broth. When I took it out of the oven, I added 2 tablespoons (or so) of butter and a lot of grated pecorino romano.

Tonight I am going to try creating a gluten free teriyaki sauce. All of the premade sauces have gluten in them and I have tried using gluten-free soy suace + honey + sesame oil. That combo is pretty good but it's still not quite teriyaki. I did some research and this time I'm going to try splashing in some Mirin and fish sauce!

Mmmm... Please post the recipe when you have perfected it. There is a gluten-free teriyaki sauce I think by San J... but it is mostly salt and too strong.

I thought it might be fun if we had a thread where we shared what we're cooking up for dinner:) I am not an experienced cook so coming up with gluten free menus for me and my boyfriend feels like a challenge. It's also weird since I only started eating meat since my diagnosis, so I have 0 experience preparing meat.

Tonight I'm going to try that Tinkyada spiral pasta with some gluten-free pasta sauce and gluten-free meatballs I got from TJ's.

Dinner tonight is homemade buffalo wings, white rice and broccoli.

I was making food only for myself tonight. This may be gross to everyone else, but I made 1/2 bag of California mixed frozen veggies, 2 tbs chopped fresh shallots, 1 can of salmon (drained), and a couple big squirts of wasabi mustard. I nuked the shallots with the frozen veggies, then added the salmon and wasabi mustard and stirred. Simple, easy food with lots of flavors.

I'm a sucker for shallots and wasabi and mustard.

We all just had sandwiches and carrot sticks. Everyone likes that sometimes. We each have what we want - pb&j, grilled cheese, grilled pepper cheese and roast beef, & roast beef cold.

Tomorrow night we are having crock- pot turkey chili. Either plain, chili Mac or taco salad

"Ancient Grain mix" made in veggie broth (with extra veggie broth and some veggie oil added) in the rice cooker with shallots, garlic, and jalapenos, then spinach wilted over the top and a can of tuna mixed in at the end. I am all about the canned fish for ease of cooking.

Tonight I'm making some "winter carnival", a recipe my mom always made in the wintertime.

1 lb ground beef

1 bell pepper chopped

1 small onion chopped

2 cans tomatoes with sauce (add water if no sauce)

1/3 cup Karo syrup

1 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp chili powder

2 bay leaves

2 cups cooked rice

Brown ground beef until cooked, mix in peppers and onions and cook until soft. Mix in everything else, (add half a cup of water if needed) and simmer for at least 30 minutes (the longer the better it will taste). Remove bay leaves before eating. If you want you can top with cheddar cheese. This is winter comfort food for me!
