The treatment is pretty awful so far. They have me on 3000 mg of antibiotics a day; for someone who is anti-pill swallowing 7 pills a day is a chore. In fact I need to go do that now.
Okay, down the hatch.
Lets get to talking about some recipes now. Yesterday was a good food day in my house. I made Bruschetta for a snack and Fajita Nachos for lunch. My family was very impressed and ate every last crumb, which always makes my heart smile. Here are the recipes for you.
6-7 Medium tomatoes
2 Green Onions
1 Small Bell Pepper
1 loaf Udi’s Gluten Free Bread
Mozzarella Cheese (optional)
This is really simple to pull together and takes just a few minutes.
1. Preheat your oven to 375*, cut your bread slices in half and lay them out on a pan. Then brush them with a GOOD quality olive oil and pop them in the oven to toast… you know…until they are crusty. I flipped mine over at about 10 minutes because I like them very crusty.
2. Now while your bread is in the oven get to chopping. Chop the tomatoes, onions, thyme, and bell pepper. Put that all in a bowl and drizzle a few tablespoons of olive oil over it. Lastly, sprinkle some Parm cheese over it all and let it sit for a little while so that your flavors really developed.
3. When your toast is nice and crusty pull it out and sprinkle a little mozzeralla on it and pop it back in until it melts—that really adds something to this appetizer.
See one of the easiest things you can do in your kitchen but I promise you that it till impress. You can doctor this up anyway that you like. Play around with spices and ingredients. I happen to think some fresh avocado would taste amazing in this dish. Might try that later this week…
1 lb Ground Beef (I use grass fed, no antibiotic)
Fajita Seasoning (Simply Organic is GF)
1 Medium Onion
1 Large Bell Pepper
1 Large Tomato
1 Bag of Corn Chips (I use the Scoops)
Queso Blanco (On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina Creamy Monterey Jack Queso is a good GF option)
This too is insanely simple but will provoke your family to clean their plates.
1. Brown your ground beef, drain off any grease, and add your fajita mix and a little water.
2. In a separate pan cook down your onions and peppers until they are soft. I always save a little fajita mix to add in with them but you don’t have to.
3. Chop all of your veggies.
4. Assemble. Chips. Meat. Veggies. Drizzle with TONS of cheese.
Trust me on this… they will yum this all up.
Today’s recipes are very simple and do not take much planning or preparations. I hope that your family enjoys these as much as mine did and I hope that your play around with these recipes to make them your own. Please leave me comments on any additions or improvements that you make I am always looking to learn something. I hope everyone has a blessed day.
