Chicken rice casserole. A year ago this was a quick easy meal that involved throwing rice, soup and chicken in a pan and throwing it in the oven. Since I refuse to spend $4 for a can of soup it now involves making my own mushroom soup which I'm glad I learned to do, it's far better than anything I ever had from a can.

Isn't homemade mushroom soup awesome? It is a revelation. I cannot recall when I last bought a can of soup - it simply is not necessary.

WB Love! We're just back from a trip too. My DP talked me into buying a 24' very used mobile home. I had 100 reasons why we shouldn't buy it, he had 101 why we should. Number 101 was "We need an adventure!!!!

It was an adventure. We went camping with a club the people we bought the RV from belong to and I caught a lot of flack about not eating their food or showing up for their planned food functions.

DP made smoked ribs with mu homemade Adobe sauce tonight. We ate after I woke up from my little three hour nap, I slept like a zombie in my big little house (It seemed enourmous after the RV, and my bed felt so good!) We had grilled sweet potatos and Redneck Caviar with dinner and those kicking ribs, along with Tostito's scoops.

Over dinner, I said to DP "People say stupid things, don't they" Reply: "All the time" I'm gonna start letting the stuff things people say roll of my back, that's what I learned from camping. That, and those side awnings are a major PIA to get down. We're not going to join the camping group, I had forewarned the organizer that I wouldn't partake in group eating events and why. I felt no need to repeat why during the course of the weekend. She didn't say anything then, but when I told her last night why we we're joining, she said, "Sorry, we're a very food oriented group".

I told her I already belong to a food focused group. Thank God for you folks, I've learned so much from you. :DB);) ((( )))

A Saturday afternoon trip to the store got me some goodies like ground turkey for $.99 a pound and a ginormous tub of ricotta relatively cheap. I kind of threw a bunch of crap together and called it a pasta casserole. I kept just enough out to have for dinner and froze three small ones for later. It turned out better than I thought it would so at least I won't be worried about pulling out the leftovers on a lazy day.

Breakfast for dinner (I think my girls would eat pancakes for every meal if I let them), anyway tonight we are making banana split pancakes and turkey bacon.

I think I'll come to your house for dinner. Sounds like breakfast and dessert all wrapped up in one.

Hamburgers, shredded lettuce, tomato, oven baked sweet potato fries with olive oil. I can't wait to eat. I'm coming off a glutening/corning/soying..one of those, they all feel the same to me and I have had nothing but brown rice and fruit for 2 days. I am finally getting my appetite back.

I love this thread! Thanks, everyone! Tonight we had rice vermicelli, tofu cutlets and chunks of watermelon. (Oh--and a pot of decaf green tea--love that with Chinese food.) The rice noodles were stirred with a little sauce I make with gluten-free soy sauce, sesame oil, Korean chili powder and onion powder. The tofu cutlets are cooked in a skillet in a sauce of gluten-free soy sauce, sesame oil, Korean chili powder, garlic powder, ginger powder and brown sugar. Can post the actual recipe if anyone's interested. These are delicious! The whole meal was a big hit with gluten-free and non-gluten-free family members.

Beans made in crockpot--worked most of the day---with small pieces of ham thrown in. (I put molasses, garlic powder, onion powder, mustard powder, a little tomato paste, a little Korean chili powder, black pepper in the beans. Right before serving I'll salt it.) This will be over rice. I'm checking the garden to see if we have lettuce for tonight and we'll have that with some pieces of cukes and celery.

My son made non-gluten-free cookies for which I'm thankful----one diet helps the other! :)

Yesterday I made Morrocan chicken and rice. I didn't feel like cooking tonight. I had a bowl of popcorn while watching a movie with hubby. Hubby ate some leftover morrocan chicken.

I'd love the Moroccan chicken recipe! Sounds delicious!

Oh...and meant to say that my husband brought home gluten-free beer this morning. I've tried Green's ale and really liked it. He brought home a mixed 6-pack of 3 different kinds. We'll report the taste-test back! It's going to taste awfully good with the beans!

Mexican tonight.

Guacamole and mango and pineapple salsa and a batch of

Beef nachos (I make my own taco seasoning)

Flan with vanilla whipped cream.

PS

I wish I could have a marguerita, but I got glutened this week (I KNOW!! duh!! how can an OLD VETERAN make such a rookie mistake? <_< wellll, I trusted a company rep who said they have "no complaints from anyone on their gluten free assurances" ....)

anyhoo, "doo doo happens" and you move on. I took it slow for a few days, and now, IH wants Mex!!! :lol:

hon, that post is from 2010 and I am not sure she will see your request. (just so you know)

Wow, we've been doing this thread since 2010? How time flies when you're eating well :D I still enjoy reading what you all are making. I'm not feeling so well, so I'm making my safe chicken and rice soup.
