My Food Diary, Just Saying

My Food Diary

**Click on photo that is too small to read and that makes it large and you can then read the info under the photo.

I did not make photos of the rice, cabbage, and mousse making.

I put 1 cup rice with 2 cups water into rice cooker and allow that to cook while meat was cooking. 

I have more than one rice cooker.  I cooked purple cabbage in steamer rack, inside the rice cooker pot. Add water to rice pot to just below the steamer level. Cook as you would rice. You might like to check it after 10 minutes to test for desired crispness and cook accordingly.

Now, the mousse! LOL  This was my first time to do a mousse this way, with powdered milk. I learned a couple of things that I want to try next time. Instead of putting water in mixer bowl and adding dry milk and then whipping with wire whip—I plan to add the non-fat dry milk to the water and make milk, keep in refrigerator until ready to use, then use regular attachment (not wire whip) that I would use to do a cake mix with.  I tried using the “how to make powdered milk” recipe I found. I’m not saying the recipe was bad—apparently I just had to “test” this.  I’ll let you know if it works a lot easier next time. That why I am not even giving recipe for this.  I did add chocolate syrup to it.  Believe it or not, it turned out ok enough for me to eat it and it looked pretty—but—after quite a frustrating series of trying to “fix” it.  LOL Whew!

Any way, the meal did turn out good.  I enjoyed it a lot.

Thank you for reading my blog about My Food Diary!

*I do this blog to keep up with my food intake, for medical reasons, my choice.  I am eating healthier than I did but I make no claims my way is your way. I like fast, easy, and healthy food, without needing to spend all day in the kitchen slaving over long recipes and watching things cook.  LOL

Small Roast Portion and Seasoned Oven Fries
I bought a roast, divided it into smaller portions, bagged each piece in a small bag, placed those bags of roast in large bag and froze.  I kept one piece out to cook in the Nuwave Oven. I seared the roast in a skillet, placed in pan, cooked it for about 25 minutes in the nuwave oven.  
I like skins on potatoes.  I scrubbed potatoes well, cut into strips, tossed into a pan, sprinkled some of the frozen, seasoned, onion/bellpepper mix and mixed. Baked potatoes about 15 to 20 minutes.
Even though I cut the roast in small portions, this piece was too large for one meal. I did the photo with some of the potatoes to give idea of how it looked when done.  No, I didn’t eat the whole thing in one meal.  LOL The roast was juicy and tender.  The fries were delicious.  There are other methods of cooking a roast but I just like using the Nuwave oven. Very easy to cook this.  Add a salad and you have a complete, nutritious meal.  (I just like, easy, uncomplicated, fast things to cook—but healthy, too.)
