Sausages in Onion Gravy
This turned out to be one of those meals when I was sad to be full. Terrific! I didn't have Worcestershire sauce, so I used tamari, added a splash of scotch, four chopped mushrooms, and 1/8 tsp of chili powder for a little kick. I used gluten-free flour for my hubby. Oh, and ketchup instead of tomato sauce, since so many reviews said that worked and was easier. Like others, I found 2 C of water worked well; even with the reduction, I ended up using some additional corn starch and simmering it longer to make the gravy thicker. We had this over home-grown potatoes, mashed, with broccoli on the side. We are all feeling full and cozy and ready to hunker down for a comfortable Sunday afternoon.

Emerald Green Risotto
New family favorite! It helped that most of the greens came from our garden, but the combination of everything all together was delicious. Husband had seconds, son had thirds saying, "Dee-lish!" I made it without cheese because my husband can't have dairy products, but I did put in a good scoop of Earth Balance so it would have a little somethin' extra to replace the cheese. I didn't stir it constantly and I think I ought to have. The rice wasn't quite done by the time all the broth was soaked in, so I made some more broth with Better Than Bouillon - too much, actually, so it all turned out a little soggy perhaps, but that didn't stop us from loving it.

Pork, Apple, and Ginger Stir-Fry with Hoisin Sauce
Yum! I didn't have any hoisin sauce, but I made some using cashew butter instead of peanut butter; used tamari instead of soy sauce; and used canola oil instead of peanut oil (all changes due to hubby's dietary restrictions). It took me longer than the recipe said to get the pork hot enough, but I think I may have not cooked it long enough the first round. Served this mixed up with rice noodles. We have a new "comfort food"!
