crab bisque

welsh fakebit :)  because i put tomato in it lolz i could not help myself

 

it was good, although i think i need to use something other than just rice flour for roux for the cheese sauce (NOT tapioca!  talk about *rubbery* the stuff looked like pulled taffy)  the bisque was awesome - i even used hot sauce in it that i concocted from the garden peppers.  and some green onions we grew that i froze in portions - that makes me happy  :)

 

hoping to have a freezer full of venison tomorrow :)  well, at least one at the butcher, anyway.....  <_<

:ph34r:  I didn't think tapioca could do that...

 

I had leftover mac and cheese with raw carrots.

Yesterday: Baked lemon pepper seasoned chicken leg quarters with Idahoan steakhouse bacon and ranch red potatoes (one of the first times I have cooked something from a box other than mac n cheese since I went gluten-free) and peas.  Those potatoes are REALLY good by the way.  I could eat the whole box.  

 

Today: Hamburgers for lunch, Chicken stir fry for dinner

 

Tomorrow: Chebe pizza crust mix-  mushroom pizza for me, ham and pineapple for my husband

It's meatloaf night. :D My husband always makes some lame joke about hating my meatloaf but he always eats it so it can't be bad because he flat out doesn't eat things he doesn't like. I'll probably make tater wedges to go with it and I'll dig a veggie out of the freezer for myself.

 

Dessert will be polishing off my Indian pudding with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream. I'll pass on life without dairy thanks. I did a single week, twice, and it was a living hell both times. (probably more for my husband than me he'll tell you :lol:)

I don't know about that. Us mormons might take that as a challenge! :P

 

I've always been a fan of the pierogi casserole, but I suppose that isn't really a cheap thing for us gluten free people to throw together. It is really easy though! Of course, this is from the person who still screws up cooking rice. :ph34r:

Last night I made Mexican rice, ancho potato wedges for my husband because he doesn't do tomatoes unless they're on pasta, and quesadillas. We'll repeat tonight. I usually just dice up chicken breasts but last night I was like screw it, poached them and threw them in my KichenAid to shred them. Apparently 2 shredded chicken breasts are somehow twice as much meat as 2 diced chicken breasts. :ph34r: I'll still have some leftover to freeze for next week or something. Lesson learned.

I finally tried the Van's cheese crackers.... no words can be said for how much i enjoyed them. Now hopefully it doesn't come back to bite me, but it was so good. :ph34r:

 

I also tried some baby swiss cheese and that lunch meat i asked about a while back....

 

I'm not sure what i will be doing for dinner.

My SIL shared this today on facebook. I'm super excited to try it soon, probably this weekend. I don't know why I never thought of roasting cabbage before, I roast everything else!

 

Garlic Rubbed Roasted Cabbage Steaks

If you love cabbage, you are going to freak out about how good this is. Now, if you are on the fence about cabbage, you need to try this because this might be the recipe that converts you to a cabbage lover.

This is a simple side dish worthy of a dinner party and couldn’t be easier to make. Four ingredients, a couple of minutes to prepare and toss in the oven for an hour.

Ingredients
1 (approx 2lb) head of organic green cabbage, cut into 1″ thick slices
1.5 tablespoons olive oil
2 to 3 large garlic cloves, smashed
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
spray olive oil OR non-stick cooking spray

Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 400F and spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Pull outer leaf off cabbage (it’s usually dirty and nasty looking), cut cabbage from top to bottom (bottom being root) into 1″ thick slices.

2. Rub both sides of cabbage with smashed garlic.

3. Use a pastry brush to evenly spread the olive oil over both sides of the cabbage slices.

4. Finally, sprinkle each side with a bit of kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper.

5. Roast on the middle rack for 30 minutes. Carefully flip the cabbage steaks and roast for an additional 30 minutes until edges are brown and crispy. Serve hot and Enjoy!

This morning, I put the following into my rice cooker: about 2 cups of beans, a jar of Prego pasta sauce, a tablespoon of brown sugar, 1 tbs chili, 1 tsp cumin powder, 1/2 tsp cayenne, a teensy dash of cinnamon, salt, pepper, diced sweet potato, onion, garlic, and chopped red pepper…then flipped it on and had an awesome pot of veggie chili ready when I got home. Delicious.

In all the ways I have eaten cabbage, that's never even entered my mind. I roast every other vegetable, too. Sounds like something I need to try.

Thanks for sharing, sweets!

nothing like one pot, no watching, no stirring tasty goodness.

OH, I have an on-going  GIGANTIC REQUEST LIST I have compiled for when I visit you, babes.   ;)

stromboli.....yum

 

We're having burgers with sauteed shrooms, corn on the cob, greek salad.

 

Last night, we had a chicken caesar because we had to hurry and get ready to go out.

At night.

Like grown-ups do.

It's been awhile. We saw Craig Ferguson live. If you are not familiar with him, he does late night and he is truly irreverent and funny.

(When I was very ill,  hubs would tape him for me every night and I would watch him for comic relief. He helped save my sanity).

 

I did not stop laughing for the entire 1.5 hours. I almost peed myself. ^_^

He did a bit about prepping for a colonoscopy that was hilarious.

oh, yeah, i almost forgot:

 

my new favorite food group is GELATO!!!!!!!

 

o my gosh, it is awesome - i got haagen dazs <i couldn't find anything questionable on the label and so far, so good.........  but i did see the talenti at the grocery store as well.  if i have any kind of reaction, i will try those next.  sea salt & caramel is da bomb.  it has soy in it, but it must not be an awful lot, because it is 'sitting' well  :)  a TON of calories, which is good for me to gain weight.  i got a little app for my phone that counts calories - i thought i was nowhere near eating enough, but i am pretty close to the amount of calories i *should* be having in order to gain .8 lb per month.  gelato is going to catapult me into calorie city  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D

You must have gelato in Italy. It is worth the plane tickets and I am not kidding. My favourites are grapefruit, limone, pistachio (in Sicily) - anything with nuts and/or fruit. My husband always has something with chocolate. Swooningating!
