Tonight is going to be my first time cooking a gluten-free meal! Up until now I have been eating boiled eggs, salads, potatoes, and some fish my husband made.

I am making:

Ground beef tacos in corn tortillas with tomatoes and lettuce, with black beans and brown rice on the side

Dessert: fresh strawberries, apples, and bananas cut up and tossed with lemon juice

Hopefully, I shopped smart and everything is gluten-free. I'm still a learning newbie! Took me 2 hours at the grocery store today (I had to read every single label of everything I got, phew!).

I had never heard of red rice until recently. I have never seen it in the market and when I looked it up I find there are different kinds of red rice. Can you tell me what red rice you are using?

I'm thinking breakfast for dinner tonight. My husband always loved Chikfila's breaded chicken on biscuits in the morning with hashbrowns so I think that's what we will end up having. I'm going to use chicken breasts that we breaded and baked with almond flour last night and either make biscuits with almond flour or just make waffles out of the Namaste mix. For the hashbrowns my husband makes them by baking potatoes in the microwave then taking the skin off and pan frying them.

DP smoked a duck today! We had smoked duck with homemade orange sauce (used coconut aminos and fish sauce to sub out the soy sauce the recipe called for with great results), jasmine rice cooked in stock made from the duck giblets, and green beans. I'm going to make duck soup with the carcass. I planned a dessert but we're both stuffed!

Love2travel, I felt a little off the day after Easter, but I didn't get glutened. It could be attributed to a number of things. My neice brought a salad...made it in front of me so I could supervise, but she's an RN and pretty savvy about gluten. I also ate her very rich potatoes and they had a honey baked ham. We've been smoking our own picnics for months. But I didn't get glutened from licking the cheese sauce off my thumb. I kept reminding myself of Bill C's famous, "Yes I smoked it but I didn't inhale it" line. LOL.

Mushroom, they carry red rice at our local upscale grocery store. I tried it. To me, the flavor is slightly nuttier and the texture chewier than brown race. Same with the black rice. I haven't tried it in soups yet. I think I'd enjoy it more if I mixed brown and red or black together. (Texture and visual thing.)

Oh, I'm so glad. That would have been such a shame.

The smoked duck sounds divine. Duck is one of my all-time favourite things to eat. EVER. If I see it on a menu I usually order it. That or the lamb or venison or pheasant. The duck fat is the best for frying and I love the crispy skin. Mmmmmm.

I sliced and salted eggplant, let it sit a few hours. LAid out in two dishes, put a mix of shopped chicken, spices and cream cheese over both. Then a layer of half-cooked Tinkyada, then onions, then red sauce for one and alfredo for the other. Mozz on top of red sauce, bake 45-50 min. Haven't tried it yet, will let you know how it worked!

Duck soup! I made it from the giblet stock while I was making stock from last night's duck carcass. (You have to let the fat rise in the refrigerator overnight.) It was sublime. DP said it was the best soup I've ever made, and I'm sort of a soup freak.

I went to the grocery store I bought the duck at today because I figured they'd only have duck for the holidays. The cashier told me they keep them in stock because they have customers who purchase them regularly.

They had geese too, but they were off the budget. $60!

Tonight I'm roasting turkey breast, boiled potatoes with sauteed onions, barely steamed green beans, cornbread and I think pumpkin pie for dessert. Started off as trying to find something to go with turkey that was on sale and ended up looking like Thanksgiving.

Last night I watched Jamie make quail and pheasant and guinea fowl (spatchcocked) and partridge all at once, cut into pieces after roasting and served on a platter of polenta with a jus gravy made from red wine and the vegetables he roasted the birds on - it all looked so finger-lickin' good :)

Just had minute rice cup (brown and wild) with some Dr McDouglas vegetable soup over it. Very easy lunch, would be great for on the go.

For dinner I'm going to fix myself a green salad with turkey, cranberries, feta cheese, and walnuts with a raspberry vinaigrette. My favorite kind of salad. :)

Evidently, pizza.

Bought some KA pizza crust mix and am giving it a whirl.

BTW if y'all want some good pizza combos try the ones from Pizzeria Bianco http://www.pizzeriabianco.com/menu.html. I ate there pre-gluten-free and it was divine. Anyhoo, what makes their pizzas so good (aside from the crust and the wood oven) are the combinations of flavors AND if you add meat it is SHAVED.

You MUST try shaved meat on you pizzas. Yum!

My personal fave is the Rosa with some shaved ham.
