Hello! I hope you all had a great Halloween. We don’t get any trick-or-treaters out where we live, although this guy has been known to show up on our front door step. ..
Maybe one of these?
Ha! No worries, they are secure in their home. The girls got quite the Halloween treat yesterday after I roasted three pie pumpkins.
I didn’t make any treats (or tricks) for us this week but I do have something planned for later this week as part of Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger. I adopted Jenn of The Whole Kitchen. Go on over and check out her site and be sure to read about her transition to the gluten free lifestyle eight years ago. Amazing and inspiring! Plus she’s a wonderful cook. And I’ll be posting soon about some of her creations.
This week’s Gluten Free Menu Swap is being hosted by Celiacs in the House and the theme is peppers. I don’t have any pepper-centric recipes on the menu this week except for some green chile added to a couple of things, but we have had two batches of stuffed poblanos over the past few weeks. The first batch was quinoa stuffed and the second was cheese, corn and pecan stuffed. Both were delicious but need another trial session before they’re ready for prime time.
This week will be a bit calmer for us, no travel or evening meetings, as far as I know. So I should be able to do some cooking this week!
This week, we are planning…
Green Chile and Cheese Tamales with fresh roasted salsas and Spanish Rice – Contains peppers – New Mexican green chiles!)
Veggie Burgers (or salmon burger for me) with Quinoa Tabbouleh - and as David Lebovitz says, tabbouleh is meant to be an herb salad, more herbs and vegetables than bulgur, or in this case, quinoa. (I had just read his post as I was making my meal plan and the green herbs and lemon juice sound wonderful right now!)
Sesame Noodles with Broccoli and Roasted Tofu
Anasazi Bean something… does anyone have any good recipes? I have never made them before but we grew some this year and I bought a big bag at the farmer’s market.
So that’s it for this week. I also will be making a sweet or two from The Whole Kitchen…so stay tuned!
