Gluten Free Everyday Eats – Day 23

So today I was at least with it enough to take pictures.  My lunch today was the same kind of thing as yesterday – grits/polenta made in the rice cooker while we were out today.  Unfortunately, today they came out a bit lumpier than yesterday.  Giving it a good mix and stir for a while broke up most of the lumps, but not all.  Ah well, good thing it was just food for me and not for guests. :D

day 23 dinner

 

I’ve only eaten eggplant a few times before.  Mainly when we hosted an exchange student from Turkey.  She will agree with me when I say:  she can NOT cook.  Ha!  Sadly, she was also my main eat-eggplant pusher and it kind of turned me off for a while.  I made these baked eggplant pieces by peeling it, slicing them (1/2 inch or so), dredging them in seasoned flour, then egg wash, and finally tossed in seasoned gluten free bread crumbs.  It was tasty!  Thank goodness for loaves of bread that I can’t finish.  They make great bread crumbs.  :D

Enjoy you Wednesday!
