PLEASE HELP! Before I post about tonight’s yummy dinner, I’m reaching out to see if any of my Blogger colleagues can help me. My sidebar has disappeared in some browsers (Internet Explorer being one of them). It shows up in Firefox, which I use. I have no idea how to fix it. If anyone has any suggestions, I would be SO grateful. Almost three years of work creating the sidebar vanished into thin air and I have no idea why it happened. If you have any suggestions, please email me at birdwoman5151 AT yahoo DOT com.
Tonight we are having a celebration of sorts. For the last few days, I’ve been walking without my cane about 50% of the time. Those who are new to this blog might not know that I fell off my bicycle about 6 weeks ago and fractured my pelvis in three places. Yes, it was a big ouch. I walked with a walker, then two crutches, then one crutch, then my trusty cane. I still take the cane with me when we leave the house, but I’m relying on it less and less each day. So, that’s enough cause for celebration, don’t you think?
And what does a gluten free blogger do to celebrate? Why, she rolls up her sleeves and gets cooking! Tonight, we had something I’ve never made before – Tempeh Reuben sandwiches. Each sandwich consisted of two pieces of gluten free bread (my preference would have been slices from a Breads from Anna mix, by far the best mix on the gluten free market, in my humble opinion. Being without it is painful, but in a pinch I’ll use another mix.) I then added some grilled tempeh slices (I used a marinade from Heidi Swanson’s 101 cookbooks blog), thinly sliced Ba-Tempte Garlic Sour pickles, sauerkraut, thinly sliced red onion, and thousand island dressing from one of my favorite vegan blogs called ‘Where’s The Revolution?’. Sounds fab, doesn’t it?!? I’m not eating dairy, but Peter is, so his sandwich had thinly sliced swiss cheese which got all melty and gooey when I grilled the sammies.
I did some menu planning for the next four days, including the reubens. Here’s what it looks like:
Baked French Fries
Black Bean chili
Southwestern Corn Pudding (from Veganomicon)
Vegan Mac & Cheese (my take from Karina’s gluten free goddess blog)
Mixed Green Salad with Balsamic Dressing
Leftovers from one of the last three nights!
Bon Appetit! Tell me, what will you be cooking this week?
