I am a little bit of catch up because well I sliced part of thumb off and I'm in salvage mode. Its rough. I can't do much and I have to take it easy, Its a boring story but it stems from cooking. Not this recipe but something else.
In lieu of my fail, here is a quinoa fail. LOL At least I can type some..
This recipe is from the Deliciously G- Free, the quinoa salad. I wont even go through the recipe b/c it was awful. It had mint in it which in the end the entire salad tasted like toothpaste. So we called it the toothpaste salad and threw it away. Neither of us could stomach it.
DO NOT RECOMMEND!!! Fail!
Blah! Happy Sunday, 1 more day to see if my finger makes it. Nervous....
We had purchased a large ham on sale and decided we would attempt to cook it. Neither of us have cooked ham before. The boyfriend attempted to inject it with liquid smoke,Then dry rubbed some seasoning on it. What? Don't know, he just went nuts with the spices, like usual. But after that we made the glaze. It is from the cookbook- The Gluten Free Bible
3/4 c brown sugar packed good
1/3 c cider vinegar (I used apple)
1/4 c golden raisins
1 can sliced peaches in heavy syrup, drained and cut up !! save the syrup!!
1 tbs cornstarch
1/4 c OJ
1 can crushed pineapple (don't drain)
1 tbs grated orange peel
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger (I used dried ginger)
1. Combine brown sugar, vinegar, raisins, and peach syrup in pan. Bring to boil on high heat. Reduce heat to low, simmer 8-10 mins,
2. Whisk cornstarch in OJ until smooth. Add to sauce pan with your stuff from #1
3. Add pineapple, orange peel, garlic, red pepper flakes, & ginger into pan. Bring back to boil on medium heat. It will thicken. Stir constantly.
After the ham was baked for a good portion of time (like 30 minutes prior to being done based on weight) add 1/2 of glaze. Back into the oven, 30 minutes, remove and add rest of glaze.
OMG this glaze was yummy and addictingly delicious. It was also spicy but I like spicy! I definitely recommend but not for the weak! Will definitely make again!
This sweater when I picked it up made me scratch my head. Actually, I was with 2 others and they thought- why? So this is the WHY? sweater!
It is not a kids sweater obviously b/c it is not tight. Actually it has soft bra cups inside. But why would you add this ruffle to the bottom. Bc what happens when you put this sweater on is this...
Bum ruffles!!! After inspecting the sewing it turns out the ruffle is sewn on the bottom of the sweater with some red thread elastic. With some precise unpicking the sewing I was able to pull off the ruffle. Very slowly. LOL.
