Hamburger Sanity Un-Recipe

Well it’s been a while.  I’m surprised that mothers haven’t gone extinct since nearly every one has survived their toddler(s).  My two year old is about to put me in the nut house.  He is so busy and so cute at the same time.   Not to mention he is stinkin’ loud and I’ve told him so on occasion.  Today he shrieked “Stinky Woud, Mom!”

Trying to get ahead is a joke, let alone keep up. I start one thing to be outdone three times over by his speed and agility at UN-doing things just around the corner where I can’t see.  He has taken to getting himself  “coffee” and “feeding” the dogs as well as letting himself into the great outdoors with nothing but a pair of mud boots on.  Thankfully we have a lot of space and no neighbors within earshot, but it is quite shocking when you think your littlest walking member of the family is happily playing cars and suddenly, as you are starting the babys “smoothie” you spot a bare bunned “wild animal” trotting through your backyard on a chilly afternoon.  YIKES!

This week I dreampt up all kinds of things to post while cleaned marbles out of my shag area rug. Yes, I intentionally bought a shag rug and yes it is difficult picking out marbles and even worse fishing out cereal and raisins.

After all that thinking and planning magnificent meals to wow the world, I came up with this…

burger

That is MY naptime face!

Hamburger Un-Recipe-gluten free, dairy free (if you please) and worry free

Pre-made burger patties from Costco. “Boo, hiss!”  I know I know, even I was doubtful when my husband picked them out.  Despite my protest I had used nearly the whole bag by the end of the first week and sent him back for more the next time we went to Costo.  I complained, “We can make them just as easily.”  Yeah right, between rocks that ruin menu planning and body painting toddlers I’ll take the patties. Sigh!

BBQ the hamburger patties, melt cheese add condiments and wrap up nice and snug in lettuce.

Did you see the veggies!? I called them Kid Carrots but they are really for me.

Kid Carrots:

I boiled baby carrots in water for 2min then saute’d them in olive oil with brown sugar and cinnamon.  Does it still count as my veggie?  I do think so…

This has been another recipe for the “What’s for Dinner Wednesday Blog Carnival” Hosted by the Gluten Free Homemaker. Thanks for stopping and check out more great ideas here.

Sourdough Update

Many of you have been checking back for results on my sourdough creation. At the moment it is still a science experiment, but a happy, bubbly experiment. Never fear, recipes will be here! I did make a beautiful, moist and delicious loaf of sourdough using yeast and a myriad of other ingredients but I'm still trying to create something more user friendly. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a starter on the counter that you could add 4 things to and have a loaf of bread by dinner? Mmmm! Attempt #1 - rose well but resulted in a dense chewy blob Attempt #2 - rose ok but was thin and lifeless then fell and another dense (not so chewy) blob Attempt #3 - to the dogs! Attempt #4 - A sourdough pancake success see post under what's for breakfast gluten-free goof? Ongoing - I've tried several more times and am going to try a completely different approach on the bread starting this week. (Mar 18). My sourdough is still happy on my counter and it makes great pancakes but it's a lot of work just for pancakes. Keep checking! April Update: She is still kickin and I'm still workin on a yeast free, gluten free sourdough loaf! May Update: My sourdough "pet" has been dried and retired until next baking season. I've traded her in for a hotter model, the BBQ! :)
