What’s For Dinner (No. 167) & Cooking Tips, Too.

It was a pretty normal week for menu planning and cooking.  I was back in my normal rhythm of menu planning and shopping from a list.  It works much better for me that way!  I envy those of you who can wing it but that is not my gift! Monday Leftovers NOTES:  I planned to make Crock Pot Rotisserie Style Chicken but the chicken wasn’t thawed.  Apparently it takes about three days to thaw a … [Read more...]

Place Setting August

We’re taking a break from gluten free eating since our experiment did NOT produce the results we were hoping for.  David has a doctor’s appointment at the end of this month (to schedule a colonoscopy) and he’ll talk things over with the doctor then and find out what the doctor thinks.  So in the meantime, we’re going to pig out on gluten this week with some tried-and-true recipes we’ve been … [Read more...]
