Grilled cheese wednesday

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!

Pulses day three

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:

Elephant garlic

  
 
   
 
  
   

 Gluten free pasta

   
  
Some cheese..i love this brand… Feta tastes like feta but the texture is more like jack

    
Salad parts:

With a canned speed it up:-)

  

Shakshouka gets Italian spice

I made this the same night I made the spice blend…quick easy weeknight dish.

Into the pot goes canned tomatoes (1 roasted and crushed and 1 chopped)…a can of limas and a can of cannelini  .. Some low sodium chicken less chicken flavored broth and a touch of water and I let it simmer and reduce   

Omg…don’t talk about the lid of my pot–this is my favorite everyday pot and whatever…it gets a periodic scour otherwise just a quick wash

Anyway…make some wells, add the eggs…these happened to be from my friends hens in her own yard given to me the day they were laid
  

Cover them up and about 7/8 minutes later they are perfect

  

Pair with some gluten free focaccia from Palm Springs Thursday night street fair with an olive oil and balsamic dip
