Supper FAIL & Five Great Things


Thankfully Parrish and I have really stuck with making a menu plan for each week. And if tonight’s dinner had gone to plan, we would have enjoyed a super delicious helping of GF Sesame Chicken.

But when I opened the chicken, I knew instantly that it had gone bad. But no worries, I had Nasoya cubed tofu in the fridge! So I quickly improvised and dusted the tofu with cornstarch to make it crispy. ( I LOVED how crispy the tofu was in this recipe)

But (you can see there are lots ‘buts’ here) the tofu I was used was pre-cubed and much smaller. PLUS I was lazy tonight and just threw it in there all at once…

So we ditched the plan and opted for take out. But being gluten free, take out is always SO HARD.

Or at least it used to be.

Because now I live within 5 minutes of…

P.F. Changs baby!!! I LOOOOOVE their gluten free menu!! I’m thinking of writing an “I Love P.F. Chang’s” song. Who’s with me?

So since I can’t share a recipe with you tonight, I thought I would share 5 things I’m crazy about right now! (Because Four Things are never enough!!!)

1. The Bora Bora Bar

five things e

You may remember a few months ago, when I picked up a Bora Bora Bar at my local Harris Teeter…and then tweeted that I thought I threw it away! Well, when we moved, I found it! In the freezer. Yeah, I don’t know why it was in there either.

five things f

Crunchy but not hard. Sweet but not sticky. PERFECT texture. Bangin’ gluten free good!


Danskos are MAGICAL.

I don’t talk about it much on the blog because I don’t want to be a Debbie Downer, but I have MAJOR lower disc issues. EVERY SINGLE DAY my sciatic nerve hurts. And by the time I get home in the afternoon, I can’t even sit. Driving home from work is almost unbearable. I’ve worn crocs; I’ve worn keens. Nothing. Friday I went to Cozy, a local store that was having it’s Memorial Day shoe sale and bought a pair. Saturday I went back and bought a second pair.

I could be on my feet for 10 hours and I would be fine! These shoes are MAGIC. My nerve hurt a tiny bit today because I was bending down a lot, but no where near the norm. I honestly can’t say enough. Love Love Love them.

3. SO Delicious Coconut Milk Coffee Creamer

Have I told you guys about this already? Actually, even if I did, I should tell you again. Buy it. Drink it. LURVE it.

4. Super Springy Cardigan

my birthday 007

I bet half (or more) of you lovely ladies own this same cardigan, because it was purchased at Target. BUT I still had to post it. Loves it! I feel very ‘impressionist period’ when I wear it! Monet anyone?

5. Ian’s Gluten Free Animal Cookies

aka GF tiny pieces of crunchy, buttery heaven

five things 011

My best friends over at Mambo Sprouts sent me these to review. And when I first saw the bag, I’ll admit, I was underwhelmed. I mean, it’s just animal cookies right?

five things 012


These puppies…I mean these wild animals are tasty!! And fun to eat!

five things 016

Oh No! That lion ate the elephant’s head!! :)


five things 020

there’s a wolf! How cool is that?!


Anything you’re crazy lovin’ right now?

I am 100% addicted to Trader Joes Brown Rice Tortillas! I make quesadillas, wraps, chimichanga, and my favorite . . . breakfast Pizza! Seriously 10 minutes in the oven and only 255 calories. Soooo good!
