We like our sloppy lentils on quinoa.

I agree with the prior mention of http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com/

 

Speaking of alternative pizza crusts, this is my current favorite. It gets cauliflower into my son. It's also on the menu for tonight or tomorrow night. (Maybe I'll do the frittata tonight and make the pizza crust in the morning. We have a firehouse tour tomorrow afternoon so finishing the pizza in the eve would be simple.)  http://realsustenance.com/revamped-better-than-ever-cauliflower-pizza-crust-graingluteneggdairysoy-free/

Kidney bean/mushroom shepards pie is mostly a throw together. I saute onions/garlic/tons of chunked mushrooms/diced carrot/celery and whatever seems to be on its way out. Throw in veggie "brown" sauce mix. I found a gluten free kind at the seventh day store. And montreal steak seasoning(why I even have that is beyond me...guessing a pregnancy craving???) Saute it all. Throw it in a casserole topped with (usually leftover) mashed potatoes. bake at 350 until the top is hardish

 

Pigeon peas and rice is crazy simple.

 

Here's a basic start recipe

 

http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/jamaican_rice_and_peas/http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/jamaican_rice_and_peas/
 

I use pigeon peas/water instead of broth and add Jamaican seasoning into my saute.

 

The zuke pancakes I just threw zukes/onions/garlic/carrot into the grater section of the food processor and then put it in a bowl with salt to draw out water. Added chickpea flour until it was a batter then fried it

Maybe you should cook for our family.

 

The link didn't work.

 

I just made your "avocado pesto" as I am calling it. Just waiting for the pasta to finish cooking. It's really yummy. I didn't want too much onion flavor so I used a few green onions. And I had cashews but not walnuts so used them. Pretty yummy.

We're doing tacos here tonight. We cooked up some seasoned ground beef, and we've got lettuce, a fresh tomato and chopped onion to go with it. Plus salsa. I think we also have a can of refried beans in the pantry; I have to go check. And we have both soft flour tortillas and the crunchy corn ones. We haven't had tacos in awhile, so it should be a tasty change of pace.

Name the blog! Sounds tasty.

I haven't posted in a while because I've been bad but I have pork sausages defrosting. I'll fry them up, then probably cut them to put in wraps with veggies, lettuce and yogurt. My 2 year old is currently in love with whole wheat tortillas - who am I to argue with that smile.gif

Planning on chicken salad, but I think I will save that till it's warm and sunny tomorrow and do the... Week, this is my Mexican MILs name for them and I know no other, "Wet-back Tacos". Roll mashed potatoes up in tortillas, fry. Serve with mayonnaise and shredded cabbage. I was going to have it last night, but I want feeling well. He had a nitrate free hot dog and I had tea I think.

I've been offline for a while because of TV Tuneout Week - my younger DD was doing it, so I joined her for no TV and threw in no Mothering or FB for the week either.

 

Yesterday, DD1 had a friend over for dinner and we had tacos w/ rice, black beans and toppings (salsa, lettuce, cheese, sour cream).

Today I have three extra kids after school because it's a shorter day, so I'm making chicken and tofu skewers with salad for lunch. Snacks will be string cheese and chips & salsa.

 

Tonight - I think pasta with canned salmon and peas.

Mind if I jump in and crash this thread?  I've been lurking this thread for so long, I LOVE reading about the yummy dishes you all make for your family!  I have a new intense interest in everything domestic (cooking, cleaning, homesteading, etc) and I'm looking for inspiration while the scientist in me is constantly trying to figure out ways to make things more efficient and frugal and methodical wink1.gif

 

Tonight we are having roast beef with potatoes and carrots (although I can't take credit, since husband made it yesterday on my long day out of the house so I wouldn't have to spend all day today cooking.  Appreciate it, but I actually WANTED to cook today lol!)

omg I am such a newbie.  I've been simmering homemade chicken stock on the stove all day and I went to strain it and... forgot to put something under the strainer to catch the stock.  A good quarter of it went straight down the sink drain duh.gif

OMG you made me laugh!!! Not in a "she's so silly" way but in a "that's something I'd do" way lol. Last week my brother burped and I automatically said "excuse me"... Mama brain + preggo brain = being useless lol.
I bet the other 3/4 of the stock is very tasty wink1.gif

You could try this sausage recipe. We usually switch out the spinach for bell peppers though. It's pretty quick and tasty. 

 

After two eighty degree days we've had a cold front move in, so I had a taste for comfort food. I've got bolognese simmering on the stove.

I am a kitchen nightmare.  Tonight I made white chicken chili.. but really it was more like bean soup because it had no spice to it at all (forgot to buy jalapenos and seasoning.)  Also nearly burned down the house when the oil in the stockpot caught fire... Seriously that was scary!  And then I couldn't remember if you were supposed to douse it with water, or NOT.  I was about to and then it thankfully put itself out!  

 

Couldn't get the jar of coconut oil open and so had to use grapeseed oil... no biggie except IT CAUGHT ON FIRE.  Also nearly broke my jar of precious chicken stock trying to loosen the lid by slamming it against the counter.... Good grief I think the universe was trying to tell me not to make that chili.  

 

skycheattraffic and caiesmommy-  Glad I'm not alone!  It's good to hear that even 'seasoned' kitchen mamas do weird things in there sometimes!  smile.gif

NO WATER on oil/grease fires! The safest way to extinguish a cooking fire in a pot is by smothering - put a snug-fitting metal-only lid on the pot if you can safely get close enough to it. Or you can douse it with baking soda. Do not use flour or other powders because they're combustible. And turn off the flame immediately as well. 

 

Tonight for dinner I'm eating leftover bolognese since husband is working.

We had a late lunch of man brownies...better known as meatloaf with black beans, onions fires roasted tomatoes and garlic served with garlic roasted potatoes. We will have chili for dinner.

Two working parents with an infant = too much takeout. :( I hope this thread can inspire us.

 

At least there is a lot of good ethnic food in our neighborhood that's walking distance.

 

Tomorrow I VOW to get something in the crock pot nice and early. Maybe beef brisket or pork shoulder. But today it was delicious delicious Japanese food from around the corner. mmm, Hamachi nigiri.
