Sulfite-Free Mayo

Look.  I know.  This is almost blasphemy.  But if I eat one more dry chicken sandwich that tastes like I am eating a shoe insert, I will stab someone.  So, check this out:

*Please note:   There is an egg yolk in this.  A tiny amount of eggs doesn’t seem to bother me.  Yet.  But if you can’t tolerate it at all, this isn’t the recipe for you.

Should take about 10 minutes to prep and 10 minutes to make.

  • 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar, NOT distilled
  • 1 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice or mirin (rice wine)
  • 1 tsp. dried mustard
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 c oil (extra-virgin olive oil, canola, sunflower, or other oil of your choice)
  1. In a large mixing bowl, thoroughly mix vinegar, juice or mirin, mustard, and sea salt until smooth. Add egg yolks and mix thoroughly.
  2. Using an electric mixer or food processor, beat, adding a few drops of oil. When ingredients are mixed thoroughly, add a few more drops. When you’ve added about 1/4 cup in this fashion, you can start adding the oil in a slow, steady stream until the mixture is emulsified. (If the mayonnaise doesn’t seem to be absorbing the oil almost as fast as you’re adding it, you’re adding the oil too fast.) Continue adding oil and mixing at a constant rate until you’ve added and thoroughly blended all of the oil.

Good luck, young Jedi’s.

Chicken Breasts with Yogurt Marinade

I made these last night and they yummers.  These have an Indian flair to them. Mix up the marinade in the morning and let the chicken sit all day. When it’s time for dinner, just grill them for 10-15 minutes and you’ve got a very tasty main dish!

1 1/2 cups plain yogurt
1 Tbs olive oil
2 Tbs lemon juice
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried tarragon
1/2 tsp sea salt

1 Tbs honey

3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Mix up the yogurt, olive oil, lemon juice, thyme, tarragon and salt. Put 1/2 cup of this into a small bowl, stir in the honey, and set aside to use as a sauce on the cooked chicken.

Marinate the chicken in the rest of the yogurt sauce. When you’re ready to grill, wipe or shake off the excess yogurt and discard it. Grill the chicken until done, about 10-15 minutes total, turning once about halfway through.

Make it an all-grill dinner and serve with grilled squash or skewered veggies.  Don’t accidentally stab anyone .

Fill That Cooler.

One of the hardest things about this hellatiously annoying new eating regimen is that I can’t really eat out.  If I am hungry and running around the kids this summer, I can’t just stop at a fast food place and get something.  Subway doesn’t even really work.  Me skipping that fast food burger isn’t actually a bad thing (RENT SUPERSIZE ME) but it’s also a huge PITA.  This summer I also watch my beloved 8 year old nephew a.k.a.NerfKid, so the car is full of 4 children and people need entertainment STAT.  For instance,  today I am taking them to my mom’s house to go swimming at their pool and so I need to plan for two meals.  I can’t really drink much besides water so that’s not a big deal, but I will throw some salad and homemade dressing in there and make a chicken/avacado sammie…some fresh fruit and maybe some of those yummy Costco pita chips Thor got me.  That should hold me through to later on tonight…I also have some of those Lara bars if I get really hungry….I can also throw that stuff in my mom’s fridge but for those days that I am going to be running around the whole time, I bought a bunch of those coolers thingies that you freeze.  What are those things called.  Cooler freezie thingies.

I have lost 11 pounds in a month.  That’s pretty awesome.  I have about 956 more pounds to go before I get to my ideal weight, but I should be in a bikini by 2017.  After the Lypo.

Right now, and this happens to me every single morning, I don’t know what the hell to eat.  Breakfast is the worst.  I am already  getting really sick of the very selected menu that I have.  Need to find out more morning options.  Cecille suggested muffins, must get recipe.  I guess I will have a banana and pretend it’s cheese fries.

I started a new medicine for high cholesterol a few nights ago and I think I have almost died consecutively for the last three nights.  It makes my heart beat to the rhythm of a Red Hot Chili Pepper song.  It actually hurts and from 11pm to 4am, I lie awake and curse myself for not writing out my plans for my funeral, since I am convinced I am going to die in bed.  Today I rejoice at life, albeit with a sleep hangover.  Thor is more than slightly exasperated, especially after the 12th time I grabbed his hand and made him feel my heart busting out in my chest.  That is NOT what he wants me to do with his hand when I happen to grab it in bed at 2:30 in the morning.  Need to call Dr. Uke and run that by him.

I am in a good mood today though, despite almost stroking out last night.  We switched over from Comcast to Direct TV yesterday and nobody in all of Oz, no wizard that there ever was, is ever gonna bring me down because I have cable in my kitchen.  It’s almost a sexual feeling to be able to watch movies while I am cooking.

A friend on FB suggested that I check out a new magazine called “ Living Without”.  I think I will check it out,  but I am sure that there is not a lot of recipes and info on the sulfite allergy, which seems almost more restrictive than gluten free or no dairy…what is annoying is that you have to subscribe and pay like $36 a year or something and I am not sure that it is even worth it with this allergy, but I will probably check it out and let you all know if it’s worth it.

I usually shop at Trader Joe’s and the Jewel.  But the Jewel has a sucky selection of organic produce.  Whole Foods a.k.a. Whole Paycheck is shopgasmic but OMG so expensive.  I went there the other day to get some staples like rice cheese and agave nectar.  I ended up getting a few things more.  I was in there for almost 2 hours, and had about 4 panic attacks.  It was tweaking me out to have to read every label and then have to put it back because I couldn’t eat it.  When I got to the counter, I had a daynightmare that I karate chopped the check out guy after he told me I spend over $200 on 4 bags of groceries.  I didn’t chop him in the shoulder blade for reals, but I wanted to.  Dominick’s is almost as bad as Whole Paycheck but it’s closer.  I need to go to fresh markets, today I am hitting the Grayslake farmer’s market on the way home and pick of a few things.  That is what I learned that I have to do too…shop lightly for myself every couple of days.  Look at me.  Fancy, fancy.  Check me out.  SO European.

Gotta go…Bambi needs me to glue the head back on Wedding Groom Ken.  Again. Registered & Protected
