Still cookin’

Making some inroads on this god-awful cold or flu or whatever it is.  Plus I had migraine’s two mornings in a row.  Yuk.  But I think I’m coming out of it.  I hope so because I’ve got Princess Ramsey over today 🙂

I want to get a couple of meal ideas down before I forget.  The first is an idea I got from Cori C. on Facebook.  I just tweaked it and made it my own.  I call it

Almost Apple Pie for Breakfast

  • 1 organic apple, cored and diced
  • 1/4 cup walnuts chopped fine
  • drizzle of agave syrup
  • 2 Tbls vegan margarine or whatever you use for butter
  • 1/4 t cinnamon

Chop up the apple and walnut and put it in a microwave safe bowl.   Drizzle agave syrup over the mix, more or less to taste.  Then some margarine/butter in little dots all around. (NB. I took a guess at the margarine measurement…just distribute enough butter so it looks good to you)

Sprinkle on the cinnamon and stick it in the microwave.  I zapped for one minute and then checked, then another minute and checked and it was good.  I suppose microwaves will vary so watch yourself :).

Then sit and enjoy yourself eating it because it’s so nummy and almost like pie but it’s gluten free, vegan, soy and corn free so you can feel great about yourself at the same time!  What’s not to love???

I’ve got to get ready for the day but I’ll be back to talk about last night’s dinner which was pretty dang good…Pork and veggie stir fry with a side of sweet and sour beets.  And I don’t really like beets.  But even Jacob ate them last night~ LOL!

Well, my plan for today is to try some corn.  My son Daniel is coming over for dinner and since Meghan and Jacob are both living here now, it looks to be a family gathering!  On the menu; chicken enchiladas.

As my guide I’m using Karina’s Sour Cream Chicken Enchilada and also her Chicken and Artichoke Bake. There are still things in the recipes to change as I am still not doing citrus or dairy.  Oh, I miss my cheese and sour cream!  I looked at the vegan sour cream at Fresh Abundance this morning and I couldn’t really figure out what it was made of.  Non-hydrogenated oil…of some sort. Fine…I’ll skip it.  I know I’m only supposed to introduce one food at a time onto the Eat list, but I’m still putting some mild green chilies into the enchiladas.

Ooooh…how daring!
