Vegetarian Philly cheesesteaks made with seitan (wheat gluten) which is surprisingly beefy and some salt&vinegar potato chips...OK..crisps (for Neil <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">).
I have to say that does sound like an oxymoron. Are they good?<br><br>
We're having chicken salad with mustard vinegrette and stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer, new recipe so hopefully they'll be yummy.
Surprisingly good. Funny, I have no qualms about using meat substitutes but I never use reduced fat cheese. Now that's blasphemy. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
It's my version of a great pasta dish I had in Rome.......<br><br>
1)Take sausage out of the skin and saute in olive oil........(you can use regular or turkey/chicken sausage)<br><br>
2) When sausage is about half way done (5 min or so) add chopped onions and garlic. Add about 1tbsp dried italian seasoning. After onions have cooked for about 5 minutes, add chopped zucchini ( I use summer squash too).<br><br>
3) After zucchini cooks about 3 minutes add 1/2 cup white wine and reduce for 2 minutes. Add about 1 cup chicken broth and reduce for 5 minutes.<br><br>
4) Add cooked aldente pasta to pan.....mix well and add romano/parmesan cheese to taste (I add both).<br><br>
It's really yummy and pretty healthy too!
I'm running out of food in my house. Looks like it's going to be pasta with tomatoes, olive oil, crazy salt and cheese. I think I have some frozen broccoli too.<br><br>
Hobey - I love seiten in the dishes I've used it in. One I want to try but haven't yet is: Barbeque Ribz: <a href="http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2007/05/barbecued-seitan-ribz.html" target="_blank">http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2007/05...itan-ribz.html</a><br><br>
(I keep taunting Matt with the "z" sound, because he knows that means fake meat or cheese!).
Grilled cheese and I have to bake a pan or 2 of the recess peanut butter cup brownies.<br><br>
I owe the neighbor a pan and a couple of cases of beer for plowing all winter and I think my cow-orkers need some too.
Tonight was breakfast for dinner night. While I was out clearing the driveway of snow, DW cooked whole wheat pancakes with walnuts and bananas and lots of thick cut bacon. I added some scrambled eggs with cheese so that I would not be hungry an hour later.
