We are having left over spaghetti with turkey meatballs and a salad. It was a last minute, have to get something on the table sort of effort from last night. Jarred marinara sauce and frozen turkey meatballs. It was good though, and it made enough to feed us twice.

It's one of those places everyone shares in tasting lots of goodies.
They make an eggplant dish that is to die for.

I was inspired by the hamburger soup thread. When I rummaged in the freezer for some ground beef, I found Italian sausage, so I decided to make Italian sausage soup. We'll see how it turns out.

I also found some pork pot roast in the freezer, so we'll have that too.

Some things are better the 2nd day. Split pea soup is one of them.

DH didn't pick up Taco Tuesday, but we have a hankering for tuna salad.

Thanks for your ideas!

I am on a very restricted diet at the moment - basically an elimination diet to clear my system and then I can add things back. Yeast is a major factor in many of my health problems so I have had to cut out anything connected with it like sugar, vinegar, fungus (no mushrooms), fruit, alcohol, etc. On top of that, some of my allergies are to nuts such as almonds and cashews (my favourites).

I also have a dairy problem but do fine with goat and I need probiotic from natural sources so I can have goat yogurt.

I got creative and spread a small layer of yogurt on the cutlets, then dredged them in crumbs made from processing a couple of brown rice cakes (can't have white rice). They were great because I got them to about the texture of panko! I added a bit of my poultry blend (dried herbs, not ground) and salt and pepper. I seared them quickly and finished them in the oven. They were delicious! A bit of crunch, and the turkey was extremely moist. I will do this again....probably even when I don't have to!

I love the idea of using brown rice cakes as a substitute for panko. Is that the kind that are sort of puffed rice in a disk shape?

Are eggs on the "no eat" list?
