OMG.  Hubs decided I needed to know how to shoot the shot gun this summer.  Took me too this great place down the road.  They had those remote ones.  You tapped it with your foot and they flew out of these little buildings in front of you.  Needless to say the first shot threw me on my Assets, I made it through 5 shots in total.  I thought my shoulder would fall off my body  :lol: Hubs decided that as long at I know how to load it and pull the trigger I was good to go  :D

 

Colleen

i love shooting skeet :)  i have a mossberg 410 so it's a little easier on the shoulder~!  hubs got it for me for our anniversary one year.   the trick is to load it without breaking your fingernails!!   lolz, colleen, you mean you tripped it yourself and still landed on your assets - that is too funny :D  but a 12-guage knocks me on my butt, too.  if somebody is shooting back at me, they better aim LOW hahahahahaaaa

Today I made chicken enchiladas for the first time.  Turned out pretty well for a newbie, I am freezing some to eat for after my surgery so my hubby just has to throw them in the oven.

I'm rather disappointed tonight in my dinner. We had tacos, for me for the first time in months. Neuva Cocina went out of business and I frankly have no interest in any other taco seasoning because nothing else could ever compare. My husband talked me into making tacos anyway, and I did and made my own seasoning because the only one available in any of the local stores that doesn't have msg and/or wheat in it frankly sucks. It was... edible. I won't be making it again. I want tacos with tomato sauce and onions and peppers and raisins and perfection. I actually cried the day I found out the reason I couldn't get taco seasoning any more was that they were out of business and now I'm just depressed again. Naturally, because it was on the verge of bland my husband rather liked it. <_< I think tonight will call for chocolate.

I Made Taco's the other night we made them a wrap with lettuce :) We both loved them :) Anyway I am making a roasted Chicken. Tonight.  I am thinking with left over Chicken we may have to make Chicken Tacos or a chicken casserole of some sort.

Monday I grilled up some little sirloin steaks on my george foreman and made peas and also potatoes au gratin to go with it.  For my first try at the potatoes I did pretty good.  Yesterday I basically cooked all day- I made a huge batch of beans to freeze some, and I made up five freezer meals that you put all the ingredients in a bag, freeze it, and then thaw and dump in a crockpot to cook.  Those will be easy for my husband or I to make when I am recovering from gallbladder surgery next Monday.   

 

Tonight I am trying out either lasagna rolls or just spinach lasagna if the rolls don't stay together.  Going to put half in a foil pan and freeze it for an easy meal later.

I tried a new recipe for a moroccan crock pot chicken last night.  It was on Yahoo recently, so you can probably find it there. It was very tasty, if you can tolerate the stew-i-ness that crock pots always do to chicken.  However, you need much more chicken stock than was in  the recipe if you're going to have it cooking for more than 4 hours.  When my husband got home, he said the liquid was completely gone and added more.  Still tasted good, though.

A few years ago I failed at starting a secretarial business. This week I got a call from someone who found my old website and was looking for a quote. Nothing says I can't work as an independent contractor, so although transcription wasn't something I've previously done, I have ears and I can type so I quoted a price, got the audio and figured I have all weekend. That was Wednesday. (I think, it's all a blur now lol) The week got away from me with doctors, tests and my "real" job if you can call substituting occasional a real job. So last night and today I've finally managed to find out why people charge so damn much for this service, that I woefully under quoted, and I've made myself googly eyed with the amount of screen staring I've done. Thankfully, by bedtime all I'll have left is to listen to it fully while reading my work, which I'm leaving for fresh morning eyes.

 

I'm throwing together a meatloaf and some mac & cheese tonight. I've had a hellish week and just want a little comfort food. At least cooking is a good break for my tired eyes. And thinking about how I'll at least make enough to buy cupcakes comforts me. :lol:

Yes, addy, you deserve cupcakes! :)  I need to stop off at my gluten-free bakery this week now, haha.

 

Today I had thawed out some chicken breasts but they were not thawed enough, so I will make grilled chicken with sweet potatoes and green beans tomorrow.  Made gluten-free pizza today with the pillsbury crust.

I made a pasta with mushrooms in a cream cheese sauce... the reviews said it was good, but i really didn't care for it. :wacko:

 

I hate when this happens! I'm always disappointed and a little sad.

 

We're having breakfast for supper. Biscuits and breakfast potatoes and eggs and ham.

White or red? I can't recommend any store bought white sauces that are good, but I find the Classico alfredo to be adequate in a pinch. If I buy red I go for Dave's Gourmet, which admittedly is not in everyone's budget. It isn't even in my budget, which is fine because I'm not supposed to eat tomatoes and I only buy it on sale so it all works out. My fall-back is Classico again, I like the spinach one and the vodka sauce, they have a new Bolognese I haven't tried yet but saw last week when I was shopping.

 

I also made this a while back, and it was good on pasta, potatoes, chicken, rice, anything I could think to put it on. http://thedeviantcook.com/?p=669 And when you don't live with the rules I do, it's a cup for you, a cup for the sauce, a cup for you with the wine. :lol:

Oh how i wish i could have the red sauces. Tomatoes and i no longer like each other (allergy). :(

 

That white sauce looks good.

I hope you like it, I did!

 

My biscuits were really good tonight. Sadly I had my first heat allergy reaction in my own kitchen tonight. My forearms and part of my left handed ended up covered in actual, for real, hives from dealing with the oven. <_< I'm very unhappy with my completely dysfunctional immune system this evening. I think I'll go console myself with a biscuit.

I'm trying to find a pasta sauce that i can enjoy. Any suggestions?

If you want something better than classico, I really really like Monte Bene.  I also like Mezzetta .  Especially when you have just pasta plus sauce with not much else added, it is worth getting the higher priced ones.

We were out of the house and up to the city at an ungodly hour this morning. We stopped on the way home at The Pie and got a meat pizza. Pizza with pepperoni, Canadian bacon and regular bacon. I actually ate half of an entire 14" pizza. :ph34r: I was hungry! I came home and slept the afternoon away and I'm not surprised that I'm not hungry tonight. I'm going to call my pizza at noonish as close as I got to dinner today. I really think pizza is my favorite non-dessert food. I'd eat it every day if I could.

We were up and out early too...but I finally had a full day :) We hit the road...Made it to Morro Bay where the hubs got on his bike for the last 45 miles while I drove those last few miles to check in at Ragged Point (just south of Big Sur). Dinner tonight was my usual chicken, sweet potato, asparagus, garlic and cilantro, but eating it in a beautiful restaurant while hubs enjoyed a well deserved and beautiful New York with yam ragu? along with an apple savory sauce topped with asparagus was a treat..gotta admit his pretty asparagus made mine look sad...but I did indulge in a very nice glass of Zin. I think the chef coulda handled gluten-free well...Will keep this place on the list for another time when my system is a bit more settled. Hopeful for another vertical day manana...maybe a hike (walk) thru the big trees in big sur.

I'd be criminally insane after 7 weeks. I don't know how you do it, but I hope your pizza goes well! ^_^

 

Dinner will be pork chops, probably maple glazed or something. Maybe I'll get all fancy and start cooking with wine some more. B) Some broccoli and cauliflower and carrots, nothing fancy, just the easy peasy steamer bags. And red velvet cupcakes. Mmmmm.....

What will you use for the sauce on the white pizza?

No sauce, hon. Here is what I do:

Roll out a Chebe dough.

Then, brush on garlic- studded olive oil. (mince up 2 cloves of garlic and let them sit in 1-2 TBLs. of olive oil for the afternoon)

Place slices of fresh ricotta on the crust and a healthy layer of shredded mozzarella and some shaved parmesan 

Throw on some diced broccoli florets, thin sliced shallots (or sweet onion), some sliced portabellas and/or

artichoke hearts if you wish.

Bake according to the directions on the Chebe package.
