Love what you do because one day the results will fade but the memories of the journey will live on

I am a miracle worker -- tonight I had Green Bean Casserole -- gluten-free!!

Here's how:

step 1: make the crispy onions

Slice onions into thin strips (it mostly comes apart this way)
Batter with egg yolk and cornstarch (I used 1 egg yolk and 2 tbsp cornstarch for about 1/2 medium onion)
Bake at 450, moving often (I charred a few, watch carefully!)

step 2: make the "cream of something" soup

I went for onion/celery - processed them into tiny pieces, classic would call for mushrooms, but my husband hates mushrooms and I only slightly tolerate them
melt 2 tbsp butter/margarine/buttery spread, and add 2 tbsp flour (I used millet) to make a roux (thick paste)
add 1/3cup nonfat dry milk and 1 cup chicken/veggie stock (preferably homemade!) and processed veggies of choice
heat over medium until thickened, season (I use sea salt and Mrs. Dash)

Now: mix everything together, the soup, the crispy onions, and 2 cups of green beans (this recipe is for 2 people, double it for a family) and bake at 350 for about 15-20min.
It was perfect! I served it with mashed red potatoes and parmesan chicken (chicken baked with parmesan cheese, oregano, garlic salt on it)

Tonight it is raining, so we won't be walking outside, so I will do a Leslie video instead, perhaps Walk and Jog or Walk and Kick, I have some energy to burn off! today for some reason!

Keep following me on twitter for a minute by minute account of my fat loss journey! @Ivory1825

I can't believe it is onlyThursday, this week has been going so slowly. I think it is because I am excited to go to Philly on Sunday! I have a whole list of snacks I need to bring with me to survive without eating junk (or wheat!): Greek yogurt, cereal, low-carb shakes, peanut butter, fruit, cheese, hard-boiled eggs, nuts, soyjoys. I think i'll make it!

Ok, off to exercise and burn more fat ... yay!
