What? EpiPen reaction story? What? I'm sorry, I can't hear you. We are having company every day this week but one and there are cherries to pick and reviews to write and children to hug and blogs to read and broken faucets to fix and storytime to attend and a Living With Food Allergies Blog Carnival to host. La la la la.
What am I cooking for all this company? Oh, I can hear you now. Tonight we're having this. Except mine is bone-in, not boneless. And I had to fake my own Dijon with dry mustard and (red) wine. And I used fresh rosemary and sage instead of dried. And I'm cooking it on high instead of low. Otherwise, exactly the same.
I use the slow cooker a lot in the summer. I can start dinner in the morning, and it doesn't heat up the kitchen. The other night I made an Italian Beef Stew that was a combination of several recipes.
Italian Beef Stew
1 cup red wine
1 T. fresh rosemary
1 t. fresh sage
2-3 garlic cloves, minced (I used garlic scapes)
1 envelope dairy-free onion soup mix
1 onion, sliced into wedges
fresh ground pepper
2 fresh tomatoes, sliced
1 t. tomato paste
Dump it all in the slow cooker and cook on high for 5-6 hours or until tender.
We served it with carrots sauteed in dairy-free margarine and sprinkled with fresh parsley.
Last night, I made dairy-free manicotti. The filling was 1 lb. ground turkey, browned, and mixed with 1/4 c. dairy-free cream cheese, @ 2/3 c. dairy-free sour cream, 2 t. Italian seasoning, 1 t. sugar, salt and pepper, 1 T. chopped fresh parsley, and 1 egg, beaten. I cooked it the easy way, where you put the filling in raw noodles and then pour 1 jar of dairy-free sauce mixed with 1 c. water, boiling, over the filled pasta. I cooked it, covered, at 4oo degrees for 55 minutes.
That's just peachy keen, Nowheymama, but I came here hoping to hear more about Saturday.
Uh, gotta go to storytime! More soon!
