Happy New Years!
I wanted to fix my family something extra delicious today, so I got out the turkey that I’d put in the freezer – leftovers from Christmas dinner. I cut up carrots, potatoes, celery and an onion, which I added to my pot. I put in two containers of Kitchen Basics chicken stock – it’s gluten-free, and 1/2 cup brown rice. It’s been slow cooking for a couple of hours. The house smells wonderful!
I have been promising to make my honey, Brian, some apple crisp – so today is the day! Since I recently went casein-free, I’ve updated my Apple Crisp Recipe to include a casein-free version. I’ve found that using oils, shortening, and even water, I’ve been able to make just about anything I want!
My daugher-in-law, Louise recently made me some wonderful mashed potatoes, using olive oil and rice milk. She used them to make a Shepherd’s pie (with green beans), using Manwich, and leaving off the cheese. It was SO tasty!!!
Best wished to you and your family for the coming year!!!
P.S. I thought I’d share a couple of my favorite holiday photos!
