Tonight's Wacky Dinner!

Today was my daughter's birthday, so we took her out for lunch today to celebrate since she was having dinner with friends.  We ate at a place she wanted to go where you select from a large variety of raw meats, raw veggies, sauces, spices and  a "starch" and then they stir fry it for you while you wait.  I reviewed the menu before we went and decided I would eliminate the "starch" as well as take my own sauce -- so I took a little container of organic Tamari sauce so I didn't have to chance consuming either wheat or fructose that might have been in some of their sauces.  I explained to the guy cooking my meal that I was allergic to wheat and instead of rice or other starch, I wanted to substitute shredded cabbage instead and have them use the sauce I brought with me -- he was more than happy to accommodate me.  I was able to enjoy a delicious plate of beef, chicken and fresh veggies with no worries.

Since we ate late and it was more than we typically ate for lunch, we weren't very hungry for much of a dinner tonight.  I also had 5 eggs that I needed to use up because when I was making my cookies yesterday, I happened to drop 1 dozen organic cage free eggs all over the floor!!!  :-(   I felt like such a dummy.  Several of them surprisingly didn't break...a couple of them were a total loss and the 5 that were broken but still salvageable, I cracked into a bowl to save to use today.  Because I needed to use up the eggs, I decided that hubby and I would have scrambled eggs w/ cheese, uncured bacon and the leftover brussels sprout hash w/ shallots that I made a couple nights ago.  I know -- its a pretty weird dinner, but it made me feel better using up the eggs I dropped as well as the leftover brussels sprouts.  I added a piece of Asiago bagel toast that I made a couple days ago as well as a few fresh blackberries and raspberries to our plates to make it a REALLY weird dinner!  :-)   I snapped a picture below so you could see how weird it really was!   P.S. -- Happy Birthday to my daughter!!!  Enjoy!
