Opening this thread back up cause I cooked something yummy.

Lasagna, salad and carmel chocolate brownies with ice cream, Carmel &/ or fudge sauce. Also, red wine. Everyone at my house is happy. Teen boys don't care if the brownies are gluten-free or not.

My (limited) understanding of teen boys is that as long as it isn't green, it's predefined as edible.

Disappointing meal tonight. Hormel's canned tamales topped with white onion, green pepper, a can of tiny diced tomatoes and a bit of chili powder. Baked through then topped with Mexican cheese and black olives.

Oh it tasted just fine! The problem was that the tamales just seemed to have disappeared. Daughter said she had mainly vegetables. And I had mainly vegetables. So where did the tamales go? We never figured that out.

Tomorrow will be hamburger patties. I cleaned out the fridge and there were a ton of them. I buy them at Costco and repackage. They had gone all over the place. So we will have those with some microwave French fries and baby carrots.

This weekend I made Gumbo for the first time, from Emeril's cook book. I used Bisquick gluten-free Mix and it made a roux just fine, although I got a bit impatient stirring and stirring....but well worth the effort.

Leftovers tonight!

PIZZA!!! I had pizza for the first time since going gluten free and it was good! Hodgson Mills gluten free pizza crust (yummy) I added a tsp of garlic powder and a tsp of oregano to the dough (a hint from a fellow shopper in the gluten free section) and topped it with mozzarella cheese, onions, peppers and mushrooms and a bit of parmesan. Oh and a salad... LOL

Leftovers for lunch tomorrow and an extra crust in the freezer!

:P

I think it goes for any boy under 30... :rolleyes:

I made sloppy joes as requested by the 5yo and a huge tray of roasted veggies, requested by me ;)

Chili & baked potato from Wendy's... didn't know they could add cheese to the chili until they offered to today, even tho i didn't have it added, it's good to know...(this was only aobut my 3rd time getting the chili, and the other 2 times I ordered it from a different store)

I think it goes for any boy under 30... :rolleyes:

Make that any boy under 40... or 45...lol!

My DH is 37. and I'm having to jog my memory to think of the last time he ate something green. Oh wait, does lettuce & pickels on a hamburger count?? (Now that I think about it, there were some veggies on the Subway sandwhich he had about a week ago :D .) And i'm having a fun time trying to imagine any of my brothers or BIL's being big veggie eaters, and they are all in their 30's or very early 40's ... :)

But then again, my diet of late hasn't been all that 'green' either (but that's due to trying to figure out other food intolerances!!!)

I didn't cook. I had some pre-cooked steak pieces that I got from Costco. Was going to have that but they seemed tough to digest. So I didn't. Daughter tried them and hated them. I had her put the rest of the bag in the freezer. Hopefully husband will eat them. I just had some cottage cheese. We also had mashed potatoes (bought at Costco) and some raw baby carrots.

My DH has a philosophy about green vegetables. He figures that if something stays in the fridge long enough it will turn green and it would not be good for you to eat. Of course he won't eat green vegetables because as he says it, "They are green because they are bad and he mother told him never to eat anything green from the fridge."

I would love to eat vegetables and really miss salads but with all my digestive issues I cannot eat raw vegetables and even cooked ones cause problems. I am limited to cooked mushrooms once in a while, and carrots from the chicken soup I make. I do sometimes buy baby food corn casserole (it is just pureed), or sweet potato but not often.

Sometimes when I am grocery shopping I stop by the produce section and have been seen to fondle lettuce and tomatoes and sniff green peppers. :D

:lol: Looks like he's put a lot of thought into it, Nor!! :P

I have a son like that--wouldn't eat a green veggie if you paid him. The other son prefers broccoli to dessert.....go figure!

"Clean-out-the-fridge" stir-fry and rice. Actually I had bought groceries yesterday and wanted to use up some dribs and drabs of things that I had in my fridge and freezer. Stir-fry consisted of pork, mushrooms, yellow squash, broccoli and a partial bag of frozen green, yellow, red and orange peppers and onions . Plus gluten-free soy sauce and other seasonings. Yummy!

I'm a huge fan of roasted veggies. Lately I've been cubing yukon gold potatoes (skins on for extra vitamins)and roasting them along side sliced carrots and brussel sprouts in my toaster oven. I toss everything with olive oil and a bit of Kosher salt. Super easy and delish. I serve along side a simple protein, like hamburger patties (I buy 93% lean ground beef in bulk, season, and make patties, which I wrap individually and freeze)or chicken cutlets dredged in cornmeal and sauteed with a bit of olive oil, and, if I'm feeling fancy, some rosemary. If I'm serving chicken, I usually throw a bit of cranberry sauce (homemade or canned) on the plate to add a pop of color and some extra flavor and vitamin C.

Heartland gluten free fusilli (purchased at Walmart for 2.00) and meat sauce made from Prego Traditional sauce, lean ground beef and jazzed up with spices and a splash of hotsauce. DH will have the sauce over regular spaghetti and garlic bread.

I picked up 2 gluten free brownies from Subway. They are expensive (1.99 each) but absolutely delicious when warmed in the microwave for 20 seconds.

Not very gourmet I know, but more like regular comfort food.

Last night I fixed a crockpot beef roast, mashed potatoes and gravy and fresh green beans. Knowing as I'm feeling very lazy right now, tonight it's leftovers of the same. :D

Whatever roast is left after dinner tonight is going to be made into veggie beef soup to add to my stash of ready-to-eat homemade foods that I like to keep in my freezer.
