well, tonight was supposed to be: white turkey chili (cooked turkey in the freezer, also i make (sort, soak & cook) batches of white beans from dried beans and freeze them. something in the canned beans doesn't like me.)

but, the whole house (except me - haha) has a stomach bug and doesn't want anything to eat....

but, hey: i made homemade raviolis the other night!!! my kid got me a pasta machine for Christmas and we broke it in. they turned out AWESOME <a little ugly, thinking of getting a ravioli mold lolz) delicious and delicate pasta. i used the bette hagman recipe for the dough. the stuff is bulletproof. 3 cheese filling. yummmmmzzzzzz.. i am thinking potstickers and pierogies in my near future.... yeh!

Fried chicken strips (sweet rice flour)

Mashed potatoes

Fruit salad

I guess The Kid liked them, he ate all but 3 pieces and told me I should make them more often!

Btw you need 2x the seasoning using rice flour v. Wheat.

Yes, I did fried chicken tenderloins last night dipped in egg and herbed breadcrumbs, to which I added lots of salt, pepper and some parmesan cheese and dried garlic, and it was just about right (and I am not a "hotted up food" kind of person.) Also made a pasta salad with garlic, feta, kalamata olive, red onion, parmesan and herbs, with some Armenian cucumber spears on the side.

It makes me laujgh when I look at this thread. Most 'ordinary" folk would not realize that this was a gluten free thread :lol:

So true! I love that we are able to eat just as well, if not even BETTER than the gluten fiends! :D

Grilled T-bone, taters, and a leaf or tow of something green, just for show. :rolleyes:

Yum! I love steak...if only I could eat it every day.

We are having leftovers. Fortunately, leftovers are just BBQ pulled pork that was cooked in a slowcooker all day. I use the McCormick's pulled pork seasoning pack, then add a bit more brown sugar to put it on the sweet side. Then we're going to have honey-roasted baby carrots and a Caesar salad.

For dessert - purple cows. (Vanilla ice cream with Faygo grape pop)

We had much of the same tonight except I added steamed broccoli to the mix. The blueberry ketchup is amazing! It is almost like a savoury jam that would go so well with wild duck or venison, too.

Okay...I've been thinkin' this for a while now... you and your hubby must weigh five thousand pounds by now. :angry::unsure::P;) ...or do you secretly eat Rice Check for dinner. :P

Funny! Sometimes I do have Chex for breakfast! We eat whatever we want but in moderation - that is the key. We eat on smaller plates and I cook things in a very healthy way whenever possible. We eat a lot of raw fruit and vegetables and an incredibly varied diet. I could easily cook three meals a day for an entire year (actually, longer) without doubling up on one single dish even once. But we love variety! :D And I think that is important. We never get stuck with boring meals except maybe the odd breakfast.

We both do need to lose about 20 lb admittedly and are working towards it. We both exercise daily and try to make wise choices throughout the day. That does not always happen as I am a professional recipe tester and make some pretty delectable things frequently in addition to what I cook for us.

I also took Nutrition in university so our meals are usually balanced (at least throughout the day).

We are in for a major treat Friday night - will post later. :)

Sunshine burgers (barbeque flavor), okinawa yams (purple) and brussel sprouts. The last 2 dishes were topped with Earth Balance dairy/soy free buttery spread. Actually the whole thing was a 'leftovers' frozen dinner from a few weeks ago. I'm running out of those leftovers frozen dinners. So I'll need to cook again soon.

Guess that's good? :unsure: ...OOOOH, your fried chicken was good.

We actually ended up having a discussion about how gluten-free flours had a better flavor than wheat flour and he commented that what we were eating now was so much better than before gluten-free.
