Day 15 feature

Busy day today… my favorite part was when my eldest checked in for physical therapy by announcing that “Padawan Zoe” was checking in to see “Master Yoda”.  Boy, did that receptionist get a kick out her!  :D  Hope you had some good chuckles in your day today too!

We were on the last of the veggies.  Apparently I was so fruit happy at the Farmer’s Market that I failed to buy my weekly veggies.  Tomorrow we might need to head to the market for some salad greens, etc.  But today?  No way.  Other items on the agenda list!

Birthday balloons ordered?  Check!

Birthday cake planned?  Check!  (The birthday girl wants to help make it.)

Presents wrapped?  Check!

Momma ready to crash?  way more than check!

Gluten Free Everyday Eats – Day 13

day 13 feature

Well… I don’t know how I did it, but I did.  I finished up yesterday’s post and raced upstairs to take care of some “pirates” who were “sailing the 7 seas” instead of using their beds for sleeping.  (I’m such a stick in the mud at 10:30 at night.  LOL)  Needless to say, it seems that post got saved as a draft and never published.  Sorry about that!

Today, we all slept in!  It was marvelous!  Honestly, I wasn’t out the door to walk the dog until 8:45AM – unreal!  After the long walk, we went to the Farmer’s Market for peaches and blueberries. Today was the first day they had “spartan” blueberries  and we wanted to bring some home.  Since we were getting to the market shortly after it opened (10) and with two hungry little people, we opted to eat there.  Sadly, for me, that meant the main portion of my meal was a naked bratwurst.  Not pictured?  The fruit samples you get!  (Kids get free apples too.)  We had samples of nectarines (3 varieties), cherries, peaches (2 varieties), melons, blueberries and raspberries.  We ended up bringing home blueberries, peaches, nectarines, cherries, Rainier cherries, eggs, and raspberries.

So trust me.  Missing from my photos?  Fruit!  Apparently I had plenty of fruit today – but I didn’t take any pictures.  (I was too busy eating.  LOL)

Brunch:  A naked brat (i didn’t eat the sauerkraut nor grilled onions on my plate….blech..not for me) and raspberry lemonade.  NOT PICTURED:  fruit samples and 1/4 of an apple from the girls.

Day 13 brunch

 

Dinner:  Rice cooker Rice & Veggies.  (I washed two cups of jasmine rice, added enough chicken broth to cook it.  I chopped up 4 cups+ of seasoned raw veggies (garlic, onion, broccoli, carrots, asparagus, etc) on top.   Mixed sausage bites into the veggies.  Seasoned it all (soy sauce, sake, garlic, salt/pepper, sesame oil) and dumped it on top of the rice.  Put the cooker on (regular rice) and tah-dah!  Dinner!)  Served with fresh fruit (cantaloupe, raspberries, blueberries, peaches and watermelon) and water.

Day 13 dinner

 

I love using my rice cooker when it is hot outside.  I think I will try this again – maybe add the veggies with the timer starts (like with 10 minutes remaining) but add the meat to the rice from the beginning.  The veggies were a tad overcooked (well..okay… more than a tad…) but they were still tasty!  I had a huge helping and my honey polished it off (!!!!!). 

Hope you all had a lovely Saturday!
