I know...these have nothing to do with the recipe!! Tony brought them home today for the kitchen! I have to figure out where to put them....that will be so much fun! They are just so cool. I love the shapes of the bottles. (I promise the recipe is listed below)
Last week I posted....What's for Dinner? and asked you "What would you like Tony to make for dinner? NannyKim requested a Vegan dinner that would also be gluten free. It was a great request...my mom also has a gluten allergy! At Tony's work they actually have utensils, pots and pans that are keep seperate from the other cooking utensils. These are green and are specifically for preparation of the vegan meals. Those utensils never touch any animal or dairy product!!

1 Broccoli head, chopped

The kids like this meal...which in our home is a big test!
We didn't make this next recipe, but sounded good and Tony thought that you might like to try it. Tony has cooked it at work and it is always a big hit!
Cajun Spiced Grilled Portobella Mushrooms
3 tbsp paprika
2 tbsp onion powder
2 tbsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp oregano
2 tsp thyme
1/4 cup olive oil
4 large portobella mushrooms
In a dish, mix together all ingredients except olive oil and mushrooms.
Lightly brush both sides of the mushrooms with oil, then dip in the spice mixture until both sides are coated.
Place mushrooms on the BBQ and grill on each side until done.
I (or Tony) couldn't forget dessert....
Red Velvet Cake with cream cheese icing....my very favorite. No, Tony didn't bake this. He got is from a great bakery, that makes the best cakes!!
Gotta go...this piece is calling my name!! Have a great evening!
