And, so, another hectic week is behind me! Another one lies ahead! How did I do last week? Well, I was so sick on Monday, I didn’t even eat, let alone cook that fish. I still felt bad Tuesday, so Leigh’s Everything but the Kitchen Sink Pork Tenderloin came in REALLY handy. And deliciously. Everyone else had it on buns, while I had it on rice. Well, what I ate of it. Was sooooo queasy from being sick and having a migraine. Wednesday became a fend-for-yourself-night because yours truly was still dealing with the tail end of that migraine. Damn gluten, it’s so sneaky! It hides everywhere!
I sincerely hope this week goes better.
Sunday – I don’t normally cook on Sunday’s, but I am crazy craving some Spaghetti. This is how I make spaghetti, for the most part.
Diced Tomatoes, usually a big can or two smaller ones
About a pound of ground beef
Garlic, I eye ball it. Probably 3 cloves?
Oregano (from the garden, yo!)
Chili Powder, just a pinch
Tomato Sauce (usually from the garden, that I canned. 1 can)
Pinch of salt, some pepper
And lots of cooking, if I can swing it. Ideally, I like to let it cook all day in the crock pot. The measurements are imprecise, because I usually let my nose and tongue tell me what’s needed. Noodles for the fan, for me either gluten free noodles or zoodles, depending on my mood. Zoodles (shredded zucchini “noodles” natch) are freaking awesome, but sometimes my heart wants something nostalgic. Will probably have salad on the side.
Monday – I can’t wait to try this. I found this hanging out on Pinterest, looking gorgeous and tasty. How Sweet It Is’s cheesy chicken and rice bake. Seriously. Looks SO YUM. Will probably have some sliced avocado on the side.
Tuesday - Sloppy Joes. I hate them. HATE. THEM. But everyone else loves them, so I’m caving to pressure. I will most likely have rice and veggies with a couple chicken tenders. I found some gluten free ones made by Tyson I want to try! Or, quite possibly, leftover spaghetti. Depends on if I get this craving out of my system.
Wednesday – Pancakes!!! And BACON!!! I have tried every gf pancake mix on the market and Bisquick’s is definitely my favorite. That and lots of syrup!!! And butter!!! Can you tell I’m excited?
Thursday! – No cooking!
Friday! -No cooking!!
Saturday – Well duh, it’s Readathon day! You would not believe how close I came to missing the Readathon (it got downright scary. I thought Andi was going to have a panic attack) but I managed to get out of prior commitments! The only thing is it’s the Fall Festival at my kids school, so I MAY be out for a couple of hours. And my daughter has a DANCE to go to. Yay. Anyway, game plan on the food situation for Saturday coming up later this week. Readathon Food gets a special post.
