They are called The Best Chicken Enchiladas. I would have to agree with her on that! 🙂

Guess what had been delivered when we got home last night?? Aaron’s thesis defense/graduation gift from me!!!
I was excited that we finally got it, it was very heavy and cost a lot to get it shipped… No, I didn’t get him a life sized sheep statue. I got him this farm barn and set of livestock that he’s wanted since before I knew him. Why he never received it before I don’t know. We even registered for it on our Amazon wedding registry. He was very sad he didn’t get it as a wedding gift.
It is pretty cute if you ask me. Why he never asked for it for his birthday before he met me I have no clue!
But he was one excited little
boy soon to be Master’s graduate. He passed his thesis
Monday and has been working on his corrections… Tonight he played with his gift 😉
So, while I was doing this… (working out like a crazy person)
My twin was doing this:
Jordan, her hubby, bought her 4 of the $1 size portions of custard from Culvers. I am pretty sure I would have just ordered a quart and let the earth remain a little greener without all those plastic cups. Haha 😉
I was craving Sheridan’s custard at this point, but settled for picking Aaron up at school (we ride to and from work together to save a few bucks) and headed home and made meatloaf at his request.
I made it gluten free obviously.
1 pound hamburger
1 cup brown rice cooked
1 tsp mustard
1tsp garlic salt
1 c ketchup
1 tsp mustard
2 tbsp brown sugar
Combine all of the loaf ingredients and place in a glass baking pan.
Mix all of the topping ingredients together and pour over top of the loaf.
Bake for 35-45 min at 350 degrees.
Cut up and enjoy!
I pretty much mutilated it from the get go. I am not a huge meatloaf fan, but every once in a while I can eat it. Aaron said it tasted like meatloaf even though it was gluten free. He is such a trooper.
I received an e-mail with a tested gluten free recipe. The whole family thought it was delicious and the young lady who sent it to me said it was very easy and a welcomed gluten free meal! Thanks for the suggestion, I am excited to try it soon!
Restaurant style corn chips (tortilla chips)
Sun dried tomatoes
*Italian Style Turkey meatballs
*These were not in the recipe, but she added them
Dice the sun dried tomatoes, Roma tomatoes, green onions and black olives and mix in a bowl.
Preheat the meatball and beans and add them in the mix in the bowl.
Crumble the cheese on the chips and microwave until the cheese melts and bubbles.
Put mix from the bowl on the chips and enjoy.
Doesn’t this sound delicious? I have yet to try making them… something about being too busy to be home and actually fix a meal in forever 😉 Can you tell this girl is ready for a slow down, but not getting one for the next 6 weeks it looks like. Next time I fix a meal I will probably be
an old married woman married, my wedding is in a month and a day!
For now I am working away at school while it is getting up to 100 degrees outside EEK!
Hope you all have a happy Wednesday!
At my bridal shower in Indiana our neighbor growing up adopted us as her daughters. We would get our hair done with Aunt Shirley, go shopping for show outfits and she is the one who introduced us to lambs! Aaron can thank her 😉
Anywhos, Aunt Shirley was looking out for me as always and gave me The Gluten Free Bible. On our drive home I looked through it and got very excited to try almost every single recipe in it. Here is one I made and enjoyed a lot!
As you can see in the recipe there was not any meat included. I can’t have a meal without meat so I browned some hamburger and added it the can of drained black beans, 1 cup frozen corn, and gluten free chili mix seasoning (I didn’t have any taco seasoning mix).
This is what the bool portrayed the finishing product looking like:
Mine kind of fell apart, but it was still delicious and I highly suggest it as an easy dinner.
If you have ever been to Putnam County Indiana, I guarantee you have eaten at or seen the billboards and heard the buzz about Almost Home. They are very well known for their strawberry pizza, chicken and broccoli casserole, their dessert tray and many other yummy items.
Years ago my Mom bought their cookbook and we enjoyed making many of their recipes! Problem is, most of them contain gluten. So we did a little experimenting 😉
2 bags frozen broccoli spears
2-3 boneless & skinless chicken breasts
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup gluten free flour
1 ½ cups chicken broth
1 ½ cups non-dairy liquid creamer or milk
1/2 pound processed cheese (Velveeta anyone?)
2/3 cup mayonnaise
Pat-boil and drain
- 2 small packages of frozen broccoli spears
Arrange broccoli in a buttered 9×13 inch baking dish, covering the bottom of the dish.
Cook until just tender:
- 2-3 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Tear chicken into bite-sized pieces and cover the broccoli with the torn chicken
Melt in saucepan:
- 1/3 cup butter or margarine
- 1/3 cup gluten free flour
- 1 ½ cups chicken broth
- 1 ½ cups non-dairy liquid creamer or milk
Cook to a medium-thin white sauce
Turn heat off and add: ½ pound processed cheese (such as Velveeta)
Stir until melted Then add
- 2/3 cup mayonnaise
Blend well and pour over chicken
Top with a layer of potato chips (just make sure they are gluten free, most frito lays non flavored, are as well as many store brands). Bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes or until bubbly throughout.
Dinner idea!!! 🙂
Had to share this easy gluten free recipe!! Compliments of our good friends, the Millers. 🙂
Lemon olive oil
Toppings of our choice (you can choose whatever):
Hot sauce (a fruity kind is perfect)
Cover fish in olive oil and place in skillet and sear.
You may choose to fry your corn tortillas if you wish, I just warm mine up in the microwave.
Once the fish is done, cut it up in smaller pieces and load up your tortillas and enjoy 🙂
