This peanut butter pork recipe with rice and steamed brocolli. Watermelon and homemade gluten-free chocolate chip cookies for dessert.

And it's finally sunny enough to eat outside! :D

ETA: Oh my heck! The pork is so amazing (I left out the onions and used Kraft creamy but other than that it's the same as the recipe) I just want to take the crock pot and hide in the kitchen and eat it all.

My husband and the three teenagers went out for hot pot (which I obviously can't eat) so the little ones and I just had quinoa porridge and fruit. After they're in bed I'm busting out the ice cream, bananas and chocolate sauce.

Chicken nuggets (chicken breasts breaded with gluten-free panko crumbs)

Fries (10 pound of potatoes cut, blanched in vinegar and salt water and fried)

Tabouleh made with Quinoa

It's funny because I know a lot of people who eat a lot of processed food so chicken nuggets, fries and salad is a quick, open a few bags, toss some stuff in the oven kind of meal. It took me 3 hours to make all this stuff today. Worth it though.

And there is a batch of Gluten Free Pantry Chocolate Truffle Brownies in the oven which I will top with Chapman's vanilla ice cream.

Mmmmm, it's been a great food day.

Last night was grilled steak salad and baked potatoes

Tonight is BBQ chicken (with Bulls Eye Sweet & sticky sauce), macaroni and cheese (gluten-free sauce with reg pasta for the gluten eaters and gluten-free pasta for me) and green salads. I'm also hoping to make a Boston Cream Pie form the Cake Doctor bakes Gluten Free for tonight.

The one big benefit of cooking for 7 people every night is that I can't just throw my hand up in the air and eat tabouleh or eggs and bacon every night. I have to keep coming up with great meals to feed the masses and they can't be crazy expensive either.

I'm making another stir-fry, which I'm sure I'll be eating for at least 4 meals. Going to consist of beef (now marinating in gluten-free San-J Tamari sauce, minced onion and garlic, ginger and sesame oil), onions, celery, broccoli, green and red pepper and mushrooms. And of course, rice, which I've already cooked. Maybe a glass a Chardonnay, too. :D

Sounds yummy! I will say that it was definitely easier for me cooking for a family than cooking for just me...although I only cooked for four. And we never ate expensively either. Actually my favorite foods then are still my favorite foods today.

Hi, Sylvia!

Do you get many tornado warnings?

Hi, Sylvia!

Not really although we had one a couple of weeks ago (a warning, that is). The weather nationwide has been just devastating this year. I'm on the Maryland/Pennsylvania border so it's not tornado alley. My son and DIL, who live only 5 miles from me, had hail damage the siding on their house. No hail right here. Weird weather.

That's my kind of night!

At our house we had pork chops, steamed broccoli and homemade rosemary focaccia bread. It was delicious. :)

Did you post that shortbread recipe? Sounds very yum! I'm busy perfecting a multi-grain biscuit recipe that I've been tweeking (not sweet). Will try again today. Roasted a chicken and baked sweet potatoes last night. Will have left overs with biscuits.

I didn't post. It's from a recipe book and I'm not sure what the rules are on posting copyrighted materials.

You can post the name of the book and let people decide if they'd like to buy it, or find it at their library.

I was super-tired and threw some chicken and stuff in a pot. I was too lazy to brown the meat or saute onions and garlic, just threw it in a Dutch oven and hoped for the best. It came out really yummy.

5 or 6 frozen chicken breasts. Whatever you can arrange in a layer in the Dutch Oven so the wine and tomatoes mostly cover them. Fresh is fine too and you can also use thighs if you like them better.

1 onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

Can diced tomatoes - don't drain, just pour in the whole thing

About 1/4 cup of white wine - sorry, I just splash from the bottle so I'm guessing

3-4 dried mushrooms I had in the pantry. Fresh are even better.

A couple sprigs of tarragon from the garden (probably 1/2 t dry)

Sprig of thyme (1/4 t dry)

Spring of sage (1/4 t dry)

Arrowroot starch to add at the end

Arrange the chicken breasts so they are mostly covered by the tomato juice and wine mixture. There might be room for a sixth, depending on how big they are. Add the mushrooms and herbs. You can add salt and pepper if you like but I was so tired I think I forgot.

Cover, simmer on low for an hour or until the chicken is cooked through. If you do this with fresh, boneless chicken breasts or thighs, it usually takes 45 minutes. Bone-in can take a bit longer. Push the meat to the side and add some arrowroot starch paste to the middle of the still-simmering pot to thicken the wine/tomato mixture. Serve over gluten-free pasta or rice.

Skylark, that sounds really good...must try that one of these days!

I was hungry for a big salad so I fixed that and added sliced chicken breast tenders. Yum! Heck, I'm such a good mom that my dog even got a chicken breast tender on her dog food. :P
