Yum!

Anything with cheese, bacon and wine has to be a perfect dinner ;) (well, that is, depending on the wine -- nothing out of the box because life is too short to drink cheap wine :P )

I tried Banh Xeo again tonight (Vietnamese shirmp/mung bean rice flour pancakes.) I've watched a video on it, read all kinds of recipes on the web, consulted some Vietnamese associates on it. (Went to the nail salon today and everyone there had advice.)

They still didn't turn out right, but I learned that it's important to whisk rice flour really well, and let it stand for awhile in the liquid (even up to 3 days in the refrigerator) so that it isn't gritty.

I had these at a Vietnamese restaurant pre- gluten-free Days and loved them! I've tried twice to make them at home without real success, but they were still good. The texture wasn't right but the flavor was great!

Chicken pot pie

Crust was good (Bette Hagman's recipe), filling was just okay. I was going from a recipe with dairy in it and converting it to make it dairy free/soy free as well as gluten-free. Still needs a little tweaking.

Baked potatoes with homemade chili and crumbled queso cheese and yogurt. Since I was baking, I filled the oven up with winter squash and extra potatos. I love squash!

Have you tried that really pretty yellow and green one shaped like an acorn? I love butternut, but I love this variety even more.

I'll probably have squash tonight, and smoked pork but with green papaya salad if I get adventurous, or just pork with squash and asparagus. (DP smoked a butt this weekend.)

Mediterranean rice with ground turkey, chickpeas and black beans.

Wow! That sounds good, Manna. What is Med Rice?

Had a reaction to wheat, oats, rye, and barley in a lab test done by a homeopathic doctor in 1997. Have been mostly gluten-free since then. Also highly allergic to MSG.
