Been out of town (those posts to come) so trying to eat light and get life back in track.
Grilled cheese and salad
Portabella and brie…needs something! The brie isnt salty so it really needed a touch of salt
Beans, green lettuce, avocado, tomato, brie chunks, a few pepperonxini…some penzeys greek and tuscan blends with olive oil and tarragon white balsamic
Add some gluten free croutons
And here she is!
Coincidence…i had a plan inspired by kevins closet cooking but the only gluten free soy chorizo is the wrong texture…i havent made pasta in a bit so i went that route…
First i gathered sauce ingredients:
Gluten free pasta
Some cheese..i love this brand… Feta tastes like feta but the texture is more like jack
With a canned speed it up:-)
Last nights leftover rice gets a new cibe with shrimp and bamboo shoots…with a side of stir fried kale and chard
It needed more singapore to stir fry the shrimp in
And a dash of one of my new favorite things
Stir fried greens with bankok spice and red pepper flakes…elephant garlic, ginger, leftover orange pepper, and some mushrooms…veggie broth too
The shrimp get goingbwith the bamboo shoots and singapore spice
Yes, my akbar sushi pieces came to visit again
After the wiarding world of harry potter, it was rime for friday mexican …
Camachos at citywalk is where i had my first shot of don julio real after a failed attempt to try the 1942.
Jim had veggie fajitas
Lauras veggie taco (taco minus meat) and cheese enchilada
The sweet heat margarita
Jims round two was the heart of jalisco
This is my Scratch margarita
Thats how we wound down friday….
Bloody Maria to start with…of course..chased with a coffee
Huevos divorciados for me…homemade tortillas on the side
Huevos rancheros for Jim
The breakfast/brunch drink menu
The brunch menu….no of the sauces use thickeners made of gluten—rice flour! And they even have gluten free pancakes
Chorizo and eggs….no meat and no gluten
I buy a gluten free soy chorizo. Simply sauteed with 4 eggs…served with a fried egg on top…some slider sized flour tortillas and rice…add some tomatoes, olives, lettuce leaves, cheese, avocado…and tapatio
The lettuce serves as extra wraps for the chorizo if you get tired of tortillas
I get all kinds of food emails and i saw a cauliflower melt recipe that inspired me…….but i only had romanesco so i kinda did things my way…and roasted sliced romanesco, a bell (that was intended to be melted into the cheese) and the leftover florets.
While they roasted…i toasted two slices of gluten free bread
I decided that i liked the peppers that way with some cheese instead of on the melt.
I placed my slice of romanesco on the toasted bread a d covered with cheese and put back in the oven
And there she is…salad with balsamic and olive oil, my romanesco melt with roasted florets on the side and my cheesy pepper:-)
