I think i overdid the chicken, boiled it for about an hour than put it in the skillet cause it stilll kinda looked pink. The result? A dry very browned chicken. Oh well, at least i know its throughly cooked.

Sometimes chicken just doesn't change color when it cooks, drives me bonkers too. When I overdo my chicken, I make barbecue sauce and shred the chicken. Turns into a pulled-chicken thing, like pulled pork. Good for sammiches!

Tonight we are having leftover jambalaya from last night which was FANTASTIC. Sure, there are over 30 ingredients in the recipe but that is how I love it. The more ingredients and the more techniques involved the better. Anyway, we will be having braised celeriac as well.

Sounds great but with my brain fog I am sure I would forget a few ingredients!

I made Salisbury steak with onion and mushroom gravy, rice and cauliflower and carrots.

We had company for dinner and after some much appreciated and needed advice we decided to skip offering our company rolls. We toasted enough Rudi's for everyone to have a slice if they liked with dinner.

Dinner was a lovely spiral cut ham with a brown sugar dijon glaze, baked potatoes (I was too lazy for mashed), glazed carrots, salad and killer gravy. I was in heaven when I tasted it, it was so tempting to just be like... oh it didn't turn out and hide it! No one turned their nose up at the bread either. We told them that if they took a slice and didn't like it that it was fine and no one's feelings would be hurt. Maybe it was the gravy, but none went to waste.

We polished off the last of my husband's birthday cake for dessert with a little ice cream. Everyone was a huge fan of the cake with bubblegum icing and it was just the Hodgeson's box mix. I love that stuff and it's always the cheapest mix at the store.

Crunchy oat chicken sounds very good. How did it turn out?

I have a turkey in the oven. My house smells wonderful!

Stuffing, gravy, smashed potatoes, corn and broccoli.

Do you make your gravy from scratch or do you have one you buy? Thought I might give this a try, never made Salisbury steak before though :)

I make my own..I use Better Than Bouillon beef , add it to the pan the meat was cooked in. add water and some garlic, some onion powder and thicken with cornstarch. Scrape all the goodness off the bottom of the pan, add your meat back with your sauteed onions and mushrooms. Season if you like.

Yum Turkey!!!

The crunchy oat chicken turned out absolutly delicious! I made a giant pack of thighs and there were no leftovers...I've been making these for 20 years, with the last 2.5 years being modified gluten free. Next time I make them, I'm going to use crushed rice or corn chex instead of tapioca flour, even though they turned out great, I think I can do better. The original recipe called for bread crumbs.

My oat challenge went well. I can add it back to my diet!! Whooooo Hoooooooooo

Yay for good news :3

I had some ground serloin with salt pepper and a couple of spoonfuls of brown sugar (as an experiment). Holy crud did it turn out good. It kind of carmalized it and had a... dare i say it almost smokey flavor. It reminded me of my old favorite (now forbidden) bbq sauce.

With this i had a side of frozen mixed veggies (broccoli, carrots, zuccini (both colors) and coliflower).

Namaste brand gluten free chocolate cake mix~the food of the Gods!!!! NOM NOM NOM NOM.....Best and only cake mix I will ever use. I've tried many many cake mixes that were horrible. I use to think Betty Crocker's gluten-free cake mix was good, until I tried Namaste!! I made my own gluten-free chocolate butter cream frosting. Both cake and frosting were gluten-free and dairy free.

I wanted to cheat today, I had so much going on. But... with the husband working he expects an actual dinner with the whole cooking thing involved.

I semi-cheated. I just pan fried a steak, mashed up the two leftover baked potatoes from Monday and popped open a can of green beans. So pretty much I didn't really cook at all. Throwing a steak in a pan and flipping it once hardly counts as cooking. :lol:

that sounds good (sans the green beans). The only reason i didn't cook was because we have a lot of smoke in the area do to wildfires several states over and my eyes are going mad. -sigh-

    • Hello I'm happy to join, any help is greatly appreciated as it can be difficult by times for sure. Unfortunately, I have been told my doctor has definitely not been doing anything correctly and very backwards about Alot of things. I live in canada, and there are celiac support groups I have found but I am about 2 hours away from any. I live in a pretty rural area. Although,  I have still received some help from them , they prefer a diagnosis before helping out to much. My doctor has me on a waiting list to see a gastrointestinal specialist but whenever I called her office to inquire about an appointment time I was told there was a very long wait and that I was considered to be a non emergency. So I am waiting to get an appointment. I have seen a dermatoligist for some of my rashes and she said it was dermatitis and gave me different creams for them.  It is frustrating because I don't know how to go about getting a actual diagnosis besides this biopsy. I was told to request a different specialist, but supposedly there is a waiting period for most in our area. 
    • Thanks for all of the replies. I've just found out I'm not getting to see a dietician because of not having a definite diagnosis which is another blow. I've had loads of bloods done but they just say they're all normal. I did have low vitamin D and high parathyroid but it's sorted itself out after a course of high dose vitamin D and they're not checking it again for a year. No chance of getting referred to endocrinology, gastro won't do it and neither will my gp. I've tried giving up coffee and all fizzy juice and it hasn't made a difference. I'm exhausted and scared and still have no clue what to do next. My gp has zero experience dealing with this type of thing - last time I was there she said it could be because I've restricted my diet too much and I should eat more gluten-free replacement products - everything I've read online says this is the worst thing to do! I'm asking for a copy of the last blood results this week so I can go through them myself but other than that I'm pretty stuck. 
    • I really am iffy on talking about this side of my gluten issues, I think I am about to ruin my reputation on this forum coming about as some extreme crazy guy saying this but I wanted to get this off my chest and perhaps see if anyone else might share a similar trauma. I get emotional recalling it, this side of my reactions, as it is most ingrained and very traumatizing experience, and I am not proud of it as the mentality I have now disgust me but I am going to come out about it. One of the scariest things in this world is when your own mind turns against you, when you can not think about what you want to think about, when you can not do what you know you should be able to do. When I got glutened really bad these where things I felt with my own mind would start looping, and thoughts would not come together. I would loose comprehension, feel like I know I should be able to think about something but my mind was not working. The same thing looped over and over and over like a broken record, This led to anger, anxiety, depression, panic, top it off with loss of feeling in my hands and feet, and the pains in the gut......it was a nightmare. I would go as far as beating my head against walls and punching them out of frustration as to why my own body and mind where not working, I just wanted it to end the pain to stop. I still have scars on my fist from punching into a nail in a stud once and kept going.....I scared everyone and myself distanced my self from loved ones. And started running a bucket list accepting that I was going to die soon. Hell to this day parts of the brain damage seem to be permanent as I can no longer do computer programing or some forms of math, they just no longer make any sense or connect. Then we learned what was causing it, and once the symptoms started to fade, I would get very angry if someone in the shared house did something stupid and got me sick again. The fear of going back to that caused violent and drastic actions to get away from what was making me sick. The sheer fear of my own mind turning on me led me to drastic actions to prevent it, throwing everything away I thought could make me sick, making sure no one else used that kitchen, used freezer paper and gloves when fixing my foods and working in there. I really destroyed and burned all bridges I had then and alienated myself from others. In the end it motivated me to learn how to cook, to get and renovate my own apartment in a building downtown, and start a business to pay for my new diet, by selling safe food to others with this issues locally at farmer markets. But it changed me on a very deep level, that traumatic experience to this day I have a issue looking at others and dealing with other humans who eat that stuff.......the stuff that breaks my mind and body so horrifically. If I have to compare it to something its like watching aliens drinking antifreeze and eating poison.....it causes a subconscious level of disgust and slight envy. I really can not even look at the stuff without recall what it does and feeling a twitch. I know I am the alien here, but it feels vise versa, and I look down on the normal people as odd creatures.  I go to the store and find myself overly avoiding contamination, keeping stuff in my own bags, asking the cashier to scan and bag it as I pass it not letting it touch that flour I see on the belt. I am hyper sensitive to the stuff I know and that fear semi dominates my mind as crazy as it sounds.  I am recovering and am forcing myself to try to mingle with other humans overlooking that one thing, but that deep rooted trauma still flares up as a protective measure especially around foods.  I could talk on and on about the other side effects but this one is the hardest to talk about it, and I feel others might be able to relate to it.    
    • Time.  You need time to heal.  Yeah, I am like a broken record!  😄 So...Lycra is your best friend for now (that and old baggy sweats!).  Hang in there!  Hugs!     
    • So far dairy seems to be OK, as are eggs. I like canned chickpeas so will carry on with those. Beans I had ruled out at one point with the doctor's recommendation to go with the low FODMAPs diet but will reintroduce those now I know it probably wasn't that causing the problems.
