This was a bad week for menu planning and cooking.  Between the floor refinishing on the house and David’s newest eating plan, I gave up.  I cooked dinner a couple of times, we ordered pizza once for a family birthday and the rest of the time we improvised with leftovers and what was on hand in the refrigerator and pantry.  We didn’t starve.

One meal included two dishes that needed to be cooked at … [Read more...]

We tried several new recipes this week and all of them were winners.  David’s still eating gluten free so all of this are either naturally gluten free or use a few gluten free products.  Sunday’s Baked Chicken Breasts used gluten free bread crumbs.  It was delicious, by the way!
