That’s right folks, I. Made. Dinner. To reiterate how monumental this occurrence was, let me tell you that after dinner I phoned my mom to tell her I made dinner, and she started laughing. Hysterically.
I’m not a fan of cooking up a storm and having a zillion pots and pans on the stove. If I’m in charge of dinner, I think cereal is perfectly acceptable. Mr PinkGiggles? Not so much. I like to bake. I like to eat. It’s as simple as that. I don’t like having dishes, and I don’t like cleaning up. I’m a very busy lady. Luckily, I’m kind of spoiled. Mr Pinkgiggles has made my dinner nearly every night for the last year (or longer, let’s be honest). And I may have said this before..but best. Cook. Ever.
Ok, whatever. Enough about that guy. Back to moi. As I mentioned Monday we are trying a gluten free thing. Mr PG was thouroughly unimpressed with this, so I decided to be a dear and make a gluten free dinner for him.
It was AMAZING!!
However, as luck would have it. After we ate, I found this list of surprising foods that contain gluten. And surprised I was. This is my 2nd gluten-free fail. You’d think after the muffin disasterI would have learned something.
Anyways, I slightly modified a recipe from How sweet It Is
Crispy Honey Turkey
1 boneless, skinless turkey breast—thinly sliced
2 egg whites
1/2 cup cornbread crumbs (you’ll have some leftover, but I found with less in the bowl it’s much harder to cover the meat at all)
1 cup broccoli florets
1 yellow pepper, thinly sliced
Almost a cup of sugar snap peas
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 cup + 2 generous squirts of honey
salt and pepper to taste
1. Slice the veggies! Heat a skillet over medium-high with 1 tbsp olive oil. Saute veggies for approx. 5ish minutes. Add soy sauce and minced garlic to coat, remove from heat, and set aside.
2. Bowl #1: lightly beat egg whites. Bowl #2: corn bread crumbs.
3. Season turkey with salt/pepper as desired. Add 2 tbsp olive oil to heated skillet (medium-high). Dip turkey in bowl 1 followed by bowl 2 and let brown (both sides) in skillet for a couple minutes
4. When turkey is cooked, add the veggies and the honey to the skillet and mix. Serve on a bed of rice noodles.
So, I pretty much suck at this whole gluten free thing. Make me feel better…Has anyone else had any kitchen disasters lately?
