Making a pot of chili. Cornbread muffins on the side.

Ross, that looks really yummy!

TB is on afternoons again so gets his main meal at lunch. I made him gluten-free spaghetti and meatballs with marinara. I made the meatballs and marinara but not the noodles - I have tried making GF noodles and it isn't worth it. We have found a couple of brands that are fairly close to regular pasta.

I had the last of my soup with him. I am not sure what I will have later, it just depends on how tired & hungry I am. But after looking at that egg foo yung, I might just order some in! I make it, but this way I can order some other things too and have food for the weekend!
Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!

I think I'm going to thaw and use up the bag of shrimp I bought on sale a month or so ago. When I go to pick up my prescriptions today, I'll stop and get the Fried Rice Rice-a-Roni and celery.

I add the diced celery, toasted almonds, and diced shrimp to the Rice-a-Roni and then top with crispy noodles when I'm ready to eat it.

I cook because my pots and pans are the closest thing to a chemistry experiment that I have. So far I haven't blown up the kitchen!

A friend gave me a hugh slab of Hen of the Woods mushroom, and Kay's cream of mushroom soup dinner the other day inspired me, so I used some Hen, a can of sliced mushrooms, some porcini powder, sherry and milk for pretty decent soup.

Mediterranean chicken thighs (onions, Kalamata olives, capers, tomatoes, lemon) made in the (gasp!) slow cooker, served over brown rice made in the (gasp again!) rice cooker. Nuked asparagus on the side. I browned the chicken in the slow cooker on saute mode, then sauteed the onions before returning the chicken to the slow cooker on slow cook mode. Brown rice takes 2 hours in the rice cooker to go through the soak, steam, etc. cycles to produce the fluffiest brown rice. Once the cookers were set up, I went out to mow the lawn and do other yard work. Returned to a wonderful dinner.

grilling some LA galbi tonight... but I don't think I've left the short ribs in the marinade long enough.... therefore, they might be tough!

I'm putting together a sausage pasta dinner tonight along with sides of steamed broccolini and garlic toast.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.
