I'm getting slack on cooking during the week! It'll be a turkey/avocado or egg salad sandwich. carrots with humus and a glass of white wine.


How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.

Chicken fingers (strips) dipped in egg and rice flour and fried in a little olive oil with oven baked red potatoes. Homemade strawberry,raspberry, blueberry and blackberry sorbet.

Sounds good! I love chicken fingers. It's comfort food to me. And who doesn't like a good sorbet. Yum

drool (brie and baguettes!!! :) ) ... and of course, LUCK!!!! ;)

caio, bella

They didn't rise quite right so I am thinking they will be rock hard. So second choice is Against the Grain baguettes from the freezer or crackers.

Hubs is in a CRAPY mood. Just sent the kids to their rooms and he is grumpy. I told him maybe he needed some fresh air. SHEESH. :angry:

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Tonight I am making grilled pork chops, crashed potatos and fresh steamed green beans. Plus homemade chocolate pudding for dessert, except it's more of a mousse texture.

The little one actually ate the green beans, she ate 7 of them!!! Usually the only veggie she will eat is 2 raw baby carrots and if you try to give her more she throws them on the floor so this was a big step for her.

Happy Valentine Day all. Filet Mignon w/ Brandy Mushroom sauce, herb butter lobster tail, green bean w/ shallots, baby greens w/ cranberries, glazed walnuts goat cheese and raspberry dressing.

Best part of the meal Tiramisu made w/ Schar gluten-free ladyfingers. OMG the ladyfingers held up, not mushy. Dessert was awesome.

Hope you all had an enjoyable evening.

I was planning on cooking until hubby decided we were having pizza. :D I called and ordered scared that I was about to have the worst thing I've ever tried to eat. I barely made it to the car with my box of pizza before I couldn't stand it and tried a slice. I almost died it was so good, it tasted just like pizza! I kind of ate the entire 10-inch pie and am sort of ashamed of myself.

Happy Valentine's Day! We had pot roast, roasted yukon gold potatoes with sea salt and rosemary, romaine salad with pears, toasted pecans and blue cheese crumbles, steamed peas, and for dessert I made these: chocolate cupcakes (Betty Crocker gluten-free devil's food mix) with strawberry frosting and drizzled dark chocolate, with fresh strawberries. They turned out so good!

Thursday night hubby walked in and I said "not so healthy meal" his reply your making Talipia, yeah but I wanted Mac & Cheese so I made it too. I used the "Tinkyada Brown Rice Elbows" first time ever they were awesome.

Trust me your day will come with a home of your own (No Kids). We have one on his own and the other son lives on campus and graduates in 2013. WOO HOO.

Tonight rack of lamb, and left over vegetables stuffed artichoke, sauteed spinach, strings beans, asparagus and fresh salad.

Enjoy the evening.

Turkey meatloaf with various herbs, braised shallots and brussel sprouts and garlicky smashed potatoes.

I am on an elimination diet and it is getting old really fast.
