A Little Help in the Kitchen

There are some days when gluten free - mostly dairy free - low carb cooking
just eats up a lot of time.
Last week, I enjoyed having one of my nieces help me in the kitchen on Monday.
She was browning sausage for our soup and it was nice to have the extra hands.
While hubby was home last week,
we also did a lot of cooking together.

We tag team on breakfast so that everything is ready at once - 
the eggs aren't burnt, the avocado hasn't browned, the bacon is still hot - 
and the Teeccino is served with the breakfast.

On Christmas Day - 
We put together a pizza and my favorite cranberry Waldorf salad together.

But I also had some "cheats."
Ah - a rotisserie chicken from Walmart.
Perfect for Chicken Salad with mayo and cashews.
Perfect atop a bed of lettuce for a phenomenal chef salad.
Perfect as a snack when the next meal is just a little too far away.
It is one of hubby's favorite - is cheaper than eating out - feeds us more than one meal.
It is also a great help when we can't find a "safe" place to eat.

This week's menu:

Sunday:  Italian Sausage and Green Beans
Monday:  Sweet and Sour Chicken
Tuesday:  Shepherd's Pie
Wednesday:  Salmon Chowder
Thursday:  Tacos
Friday:  Chili
Saturday:  Tuna/Avocado Lettuce Wrap
Chicken Casserole

  1. I found a rotisserie chicken and 5 or 6 pre-made salads on sale because it was the sell-by date. Jen had been craving chicken, so it made a nice snack for her through the week and some added protein. We bought one this week without being discounted because of how well it went over.
