Happy Memorial Day  Weekend USA...what are You eating??? This morning on the happiest island on the East Coast we are skipping breakfast and going for an invigorating 4 mile walk (round trip) to the beach and back. When I get come I am going to toss some ingredients lovingly into my little zo bread machine and make some gluten free bread so that latter I can smell the yumminess in the house and be inspired. 
I know i have all sorts of wonderful ingredients on hand for shrimp cocktails and salmon appetizers and tomato and mozzarella bruschetta... the main meals are looking like roasted chicken and its off to walk.  God Bless America!!!

Today it is just hubby and I. Yesterday we had a yardful of family and spent the day eating, playing games, sitting by a bonfire and just relaxing and having fun. We had typical BBQ food - hamburgers, potato salad, veggies & dip, baked beans, brownies, a patriotic pound cake decorated like an American flag, and I made lemon pizzelles and cannolis. Enjoy your day! A walk to the beach sounds fabulous! I'll be doing that in 3 weeks when we get to the beach for vacation. :)

Deborah, your morning walk and your food sound great! In fact, you're probably eating dinner right now. I put the Honey Chicken Kabobs from AR in the marinade this morning and will be grilling in a couple of hours. Looking forward to trying it, along with the Brazilian White Rice, for the first time. I have a question for you re: the gluten free bread. What recipe(s) do you use for your GF bread? I am wheat intolerant and am always looking for ideas. I have not made my own bread yet, but am seriously thinking about doing it soon... :-) Thank you and Happy Memorial Day weekend!

I cheat most days and use King Arthur's GF white bread mix and set the bread maker for milk mixed bread setting ...presto voila!!!

About Me
An old fashioned mama with a tech job and a business on the side that allowed me to mostly stay at home...for 22 years then I threw in the towel an rebooted. Even my cooking burned out. 5 years later, happily divorced i seek exciting new adventures in everything especially my FOOD.
My favorite things to cook
Things that make people go wow! comfort food, gluten free food, bread that makes that home smell yummy!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cookies at christmas,Grandma's marshmallow holiday salad! Standing in the dirty kitchen with a glass of wine knowing everyone's well fed and happy because of me.
My cooking triumphs
First thanksgiving and every one after that, was simply a miracle I felt. Getting it all on the table tasting so good but it always seemed to happen.
My cooking tragedies
Running out of steam after 22 years and losing interest in cooking seemed a tragedy...but from that I have arisen a new CHEF.
