I rotate my coffee mug as I look for a place that isn’t covered with lipstick to drink from. I’m sitting in my new place watching in amazement the huge trees and reefs outside billowing with every gale.
I was happy to find that people are starting to wear channels, hurrah, flannel season has begun!
My new woodland friends are grey squirrels and 🐿️ (chipmunks). Sooo cute!! I’m also trying to learn the bird calls.
I did, by mere coincidence, find out what a chipmunk call is….. Wait would it be call… I think there’s probably a better term for that, 😂
What a wonder God has given me to enjoy!
Last night, I made a gluten-free low-fodmap chicken parmesan.
Here’s the recipe:
I was able to find FODY NO ONION NO GARLIC premium tomato basil pasta sauce at my grocery store.
Delicioso, basil and tomatoes. It’s so yummy!
So, a note on the recipe
I had a little doozy with not cooking the chicken long enough. After plating it and embarrassing, enough, my fiance trying to cut into the completely raw meat, my face turned six shades darker red, I’m sure.
We decided to just finish it off on the oven.
We also used COTIJA cheese which is part skim milk natural cheese.
After making dinner I wanted to surprise my fiance with a dessert that I knew was one of his favorites. Though I am chagined to say I’ve actually hadn’t made it for him until last night.
Lemon bars. And not your average lemon bar but made with a bit of buckwheat flour. Which I think gave it a nice nutty finish.
I added more lemon juice as I didn’t have lemon zest. I definitely think the lemon zest would have given it a more robust flavor. I also don’t generally buy cane sugar so I used brown sugar.
They were good!
Also, yesterday, I happened across one of my new favorite MN local brand of coffee. Caribou.
Last time I bought a bag my fiance and u tried the Smore’s blend. It was good coffee but we felt that the coffee taste kinda got swallowed up by the smore‘s flavor.
This time I picked the Caribou coffee French Roast. Key words “smoky” and “sophisticated”.
Haha, I love there branding. Ie. Drink more coffee stay awake for life. I think thatt’s funny. It is delicious coffee.
I’m still finishing up my canister of Folher’s Black Silk, which ya know is pretty good and simple coffee flavor, I like it.
