Tonight is cheesy pasta with shrimp & salad. I need to work on my menu today, we are still in "use it up" mode. Nice to see some new people, I just started here a few weeks ago, it's been very helpful!

I'm really looking forward to life getting back to post-holiday normal around here! We did really well over the last week and a half only going out for dinner once and lunch once (with a living social voucher). Believe me, this is progress!

Here's my plan for the week:

Tuesday: "Greek" turkey burgers over feta risotto, green beans, pickles, salad
Wednesday: Split pea soup, pappadum
Thursday: Spicy kale and broth over pasta, garlic carrots
Friday: Thai red curry, rice, steamed dumplings, mandarin oranges

The best part of this week is that the soup and curry are already made and in the freezer. It's not a particularly busy week, but even so having those things done is a huge help!

I have been pretty faithful with eating at home and keeping a stocked fridge/pantry helps so much

Tonight is home made pizza from scratch. I use a simple crust recipe and cover it with mozzarella, sun dried tomatoes, and a little bit of sauce. I will add a green salad to this.

Keep up the great meals everyone!

I store anything that can be flattened when frozen in a baggie. Lay it flat to freeze and then stand it up and it will take up less space in your freezer.

It's the up and down temps that are killing us...colds, coughs, allergies...UGH! I do love TN though, wouldn't trade it for anything.

What part of TN do you live in? I live 30 miles east of Nashville.

Gluten Free Cheese steak Pizza

Sure!

For the gluten free crust:

1 cup warm water
1 TB sugar
2 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast (1 packet)
3 TB olive oil (plus a little more for the pan)
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour (I use Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Flour - it's the by far the best gf flour I've tried)
1 tsp xantham gum (you don't have to use this, but it I think it really makes the gluten free dough taste more like "real" bread)

Stir water, sugar and yeast together until dissolved. Add the olive oil and salt. Stir in the flour until well blended. Let rest 10 minutes.

Put a little oil on your hands and pat into the pan. This is a VERY sticky dough, so you will want to use some sort of oil on your hands. Bake the crust at 425 for about 5 miutes. Remove from the oven add your toppings and bake another 10-15 minutes or until baked through.

For the topping: I just used some bottled ranch dressing as a sauce and topped with shredded provolone cheese. I had cooked a steak for several hours in my little slow cooker with a bit of steak sauce. I shredded that and added it on top of the cheese. If I was the only one eating it I would have added some sauteed onion and peppers too, but I left them off so the kids wouldn't complain. It was my first time making a pizza like this and we all really liked it. I use this dough recipe all the time though and I really like it, it's much better than the take out gf pizza place and it's really quick. The xantham gum is pretty expensive, but since you only use a tsp at a time it lasts forever. I think a small bag is about $12 here, but you get 1/2 a pound for that.
