gluten free turkey dinner...yum!

After closing the diner we were fortunate to have freezers full of food to work with when it comes to making meals. I have been into cooking more than in the past. Hubby is loving it. And he is wonderful about my adapting things.

Last night we had stir fry with scallops and a piece of steak. I stir fried the scallops and steak, removed them from the pan. Then I stir fried peppers, mushrooms, and onions. I microwaved Minute Brown Rice. Then I added the veggies to the scallops and steak and added salt and pepper and a little hot sauce and some cashew butter I had made the day before to kind of bind it all together. YUMMY!

Tonight I took some packs of cooked turkey slices, warmed them up and then made mashed potatoes (with almond milk salt and pepper) and gravy made with sauteed mushrooms and onions and salt and pepper and a little butter (I try hard to avoid dairy)and Bob's GLuten free baking mix to thicken and then almond milk and more salt and pepper and a little poultry seasoning...oh man...delicious! I served peas and cranberries to make an early Thanksgiving dinner for the two of us...AND I have to report that we are doing JUST FINE with no kids in the house...just a couple again and it is nice...sure we love our kids but it is fun to be a couple again and not worried every day about what our kids are doing...with facebook and texting we do seem to know what they are doing any ways...but you know what I's GREAT!

I almost forgot the corn bread...I followed the recipe on the Bob's Redmill site with the Gluten free baking turned out very good.

Have a good weekend! HUGS

Oh my goodness. These are all of my favorite foods. Scallops, turkey dinner, corn bread and a good steak once in a while. And veggies and mashed. All adapted to your needs. What more could a person want. And you are enjoying it with someone you love. we really have to give thanks for all of that and so much more.

You seem to have gotten the dress rehearsal for Thanksgiving down pat,'cause boy, that looks good enough to eat! I am actually roasting a turkey thigh and brussels sprouts as I write this, but no mashed potatoes or gravy...:o(
