Muscles & Meat Sauce, Oh My! (Gluten-free)

As I mentioned in my post earlier today, I need to increase my protein intake. Normally, my preference on from-scratch red sauce for pasta is a chunky garden-style sauce, with lots of fresh veggies and tomatoes I put up from the previous year’s garden… and absolutely NO added sugar (a high quality sweet balsamic vinegar does the job quite nicely). ┬áThe ingredients and amounts always vary and I never really measure anything. Well, tonight I’m adding some meat to the mix *and* I carefully measured everything, except the herbs. Hopefully this beautiful gravy will have my muscles nice and happy and ready to take on the chicken kicks tomorrow at MMA!

Recipe: Simply Sloppy Joes, from scratch (Gluten free)

The hot weather of summer has hit, and my kitchen is not air conditioned. This means that I’m not doing a whole lot of cooking in my kitchen. My summer recipes use the grill, the crockpot, the microwave… anything to avoid the stove or oven! If I am using the stove, it’s for the shortest amount of time possible, making something that’s easy to do a double batch & that freezes well. I also try to make things that either use up the remnants of the previous year’s home-canned stuff or uses up veg harvested from the garden.

Sloppy Joes fit the bill!
