Gluten Dinner Party
0

8 posts in this topic

My husband invited twenty guests for dinner cooked by five visitors from another country. The young people started preparing the food at four, and I immediately got my ingredients separated to later cook myself. They fried the shrimp, cabbage and bell peppers in flour batter, and set the food on the tables. I didn’t get to start cooking my version of the food until 7:30 after everyone else was seated and some had finished eating. A family arrived late, with a child allergic to shrimp, so he couldn't eat the food on the table. My husband tried to take away my cooking gluten-free cakes to give to the child. I protected my gluten-free  supper with my arms while we shouted at each other. He finally got it into his head that my cakes had shrimp in them, or he would have taken my supper away from me. (He didn’t offer to cook the child a shrimp-free dinner with the excess two quarts of batter and gallon of chopped cabbage.)  Four frying pans were coated black with fried batter residue. So I wouldn’t throw them out, my husband scoured them with great resentment. He will have to use his power tools in the garage to get all the black off.

We don't cook gluten in my kitchen. I want one place, in the entire world, where I know my food is safe.

Really, your husband should be up for some sort of .... of.... award for that.  Like "Mr. Clueless Glutenoid 2013, special category, potential anaphylactic reaction non family member successfully thwarted"  <_<  :ph34r:  :blink:

Wow.  What a challenging situation!  Gluten is not allowed in our home which makes things easy peasy.  :)   No analyzing, no wondering what if??

Frankly, I think you have challenges in your marriage totally unrelated to gluten....

SO sorry to hear this. He has NO IDEA how horrible he is being. 

...look into separate kitchens (whatever that means to you) if he won't get gluten out of the house......

Maybe not seperate kitchens but.......

 

We do cook gluten foods in our home on occasion but all cookware is seperated. My wife has hers that have never been used for gluten foods and I have mine. We try to keep the gluten contained to one area only.

 

I will say that your husband is quite insensitive to your needs. At holidays or parties, my wife seperates her foods and it's "HANDS OFF" to everyone else.

there's more going on here for sure than gluten problems. and my kitchen is gluten free as well. I do let them bring in food and eat it with plastic ware and they clean it up, but that's it. nothing cooks in my kitchen.

    • So, I have just yesterday had blood work done to test for Celiac so I am waiting on my results.  This was prompted when my Dr discovered that I was severely anemic and after other testing sent me to  Hematology.  I actually inquired if I could possibly have a gluten sensitive because of the anemia (which has improved with an iron supplement) and feeling bloated after eating and well most of the time actually and after some research I found that this could be a sign that of a gluten sensitivity.   The Hematology Dr also recommend an upper GI.  Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?  Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?  I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   ANN
    • Yes, the first time you use gluten free flours, it feels like a challenge. ... of a gluten-free living after her elder kid was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. View the full article
    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful.
