These are the ramblings of a self-described wheat, grain and gluten-free “gourmet girl” that loves to cook and eat good food. I love creating and sharing recipes and photographing “beautiful food”. In July 2012, I eliminated wheat, grains and added sugar from my diet and rediscovered real, whole fresh foods again and effortlessly lost 65+ pounds. Join me in my wheat, grain and gluten-free journey. See how easy it is to enjoy grain free gourmet, one meal at a time! Welcome to my blog. Enjoy!
Today was an absolutely frigid day here in the Atlanta area. Our high this time of year should be around 70, and instead it was around 40 with rain, wind and just an ugly day all the way around. We actually had to put the heat back on again and according to the weather reports, today's temperature tied as a record low temperature back in 1987. The last couple of days I have felt a little puny with an upset stomach -- nothing terrible, but enough to feel a little bit yucky. Last night hubby picked up a rotisserie chicken for dinner and I just roasted some brussels sprouts to go with it. This evening I didn't have too much of an appetite, but decided to use the leftover rotisserie chicken to make a quick "pasta" meal for dinner. I cut the chicken into chunks and simmered it in sauce along with some sauteed fresh sliced mushrooms. I served it over "zucchini pasta" that I made using my Kuhn Rikon vegetable shredder (it's like a vegetable peeler with teeth). I quickly sauteed the zucchini for a few minutes in a little olive oil and seasoned it with a pinch of sea salt and topped it with grated Parmesan cheese...and "voila"...dinner was ready in less than 20 minutes. Below are a couple of photos. Enjoy!
