This week I made myself a Grilled Chicken thing. (I have been informed by the famous Chocolatechic, that this is a quesadila) My husband blackens chicken breasts one night and I make this the following day for my lunch. All I do is saute onions and the left over chicken until tender. Then I heat up the tortilla in the skillet, then add the chicken/onion mixture, with a good amount of shredded pepper-jack cheese, then fold over the tortilla and continue to cook until cheese is melted. 🙂 We never use pre-shredded cheese. I was told by a breast cancer survivor that the pre-shredded cheeses are the first things the doctors tell them to stop eating. With the chicken we stock up when the health food store puts them on sale.
Still continuing to look for snacks for Sir Son. I made these granola Sunday afternoon. He says, “The taste is ok, but they hurt my teeth to eat them.” He has braces and that means he can’t eat them. Oh well, the girls like them. I changed the recipe a little bit. I substituted 1/4 of white bean flour for the whole wheat, added 1/2 cup (maybe less) of sunflowers, and added 1 cup of chocolate chips.
During the week, I sprouted lentils. It takes 3 to 5 days before they are done. Once they are sprouted, I placed them on my dehydrator’s tray and sprinkled half with sea salt and half with Tony’s seasoning (no msg). They took about 4 hours to dry and they make a great crunchy snack; much better than chips. I think I like the salted lentils the best. I need to make a mega batch of this because my husband and I will be having these for our snack. (I forgot to take pictures of them dried)
Things I made, but not pictured:
Five loaves of whole wheat bread. 3 plain, 1 cinnamon, and 1 cinnamon/raisin
Fruit smoothies and green smoothies. I am still working on the green smoothies, they are just not coming out right.
Whole Wheat Waffles
Tacos We do not use prepackaged seasonings. Many of them contain MSG, which we can’t have.
We like to share our good food and we are doing it again. We have had a nightly visitor for a very long time, and nothing we have done has stopped this visitor getting into our garbage cans. We have placed a spoon full of the Taco meat in an animal cage and we are hoping we will catch something that is cuter than this guy. After catching whatever it is, we’ll fix it for dinner with all the fixin’s. 😀 Just kidding, it will be transported somewhere else, far, far away.
Update (morning of 8/11/09):
Even a great beast loves a healthy home-cooked meal.
The violinist named him Chester.
Chester goes bye-bye this afternoon, when Sir Husband gets home.
If you are interested in wild game for dinner, you can find Coon recipes here. Make sure it is organic and healthy. I don’t think a raccoon digging in peoples garbage is considered organic. lol
