packaged rice replacement: if you have an asian grocery store anywhere in your area, go hunting in there for rice. there's a product that i've seen some variation on in the rice aisle of every asian market i've been in, usually labelled "mixed grains". ends up being a mixture of rices, like brown, sweet, and wild, plus some peas and/or beans and/or barley. here's an example of one brand of this type of stuff. pop it in a rice cooker, or boil on the stove, and your kitchen will smell like fresh-baking bread. it's very flavorful without added salt or fat, and goes great as a side dish for most any seafood or grilled chicken.

another thing to try out, if you already have the grill fired up, slice bell peppers or leeks in half (take seed & stem off peppers, slice the leeks longways keeping the root on so they don't fall apart on the grill), brush lightly with olive oil, sprinkle with a little bit of fresh-cracked pepper, put on the top shelf of the grill. quick & healthy, but very tasty.

I love cooking with wine...sometimes I even put it in the food... fireweaver.wordpress.com

I intend to try each of the recipes you've posted. Thank you all very much.
He is on a low sodium diet, but does have a little cheese, at times.
He was in stage 4 heart failure and in December he had surgery and was given a Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD). He is doing well and we believe was given a miracle.
This is probably far too much unnecessary information. If so, I'm sorry, but I am so elated to have him with me for probably a long time.

This is probably far too much unnecessary information. - Not at all!! How lucky we who beat these 'episodes' are!! Have you seen the books by Joseph C. Piscatella?? They are wonderful - I have two and I cook from them all the time - and now that I've found them, I would cook from them just because they have such wonderful and tastey ideas!!

Amazon.com: Don't Eat Your Heart Out: Books

Good luck to both of you.
an old cook, still learning new tricks!
