Menu magic and food fotos--Gluten-free and dairy-free
Wednesday, January 11, 2012
Today was a very busy day--I still have one more meeting to go to. However, it was also a good day for eating well and eating healthy on a GF/Df diet.
Breakfast was semi-"breakfasty" a soft boiled egg on a bed of spinach with nutmeg and salt added. I also had a side of sauteed butternut squash (yum--not too sweet) and a few fresh cherries.
Then after my first appointment of the day, I dashed home for lunch, which had to be a quick one since I had another appointment in the early afternoon. Thank goodness for leftovers. I had the seafood cioppino from Saturday night and paired it with a green salad (arugula, spinach, and romaine) with 1/2 fresh pear on the side.
Dinner was one of my favorite: an Ina Garten/Barefoot Contessa recipe called "Engagement Chicken." I added some sliced carrots to the recipe for added color. It turned out soooo good! Some stir-fried broccoli on the side and I had a perfect meal.
Here's the chicken being loaded into the oven, surrounded by its veggies and lemon wedges. It takes 1 hour 15 minutes to cook and makes divine au jus.
Here's the chicken and veggies (onions and carrots) coming out of the oven. It smells divine.
And now, the meal, plated.
