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).

Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Smoked Ham and Roasted Almonds in a Butter Sauce

i *love* shaved brussels sprouts :) i make them with prosciutto and shallots - and serve them to people who *hate* brussels sprouts. ("what ARE these; they're so delicious" lolol) sure beats the old Boil Them Til They're Dead method of cooking them - no wonder people hate them... :D

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-

    • Over the past month or so, I have been have a fuzzy feeling in my left ear canal. The best I can describe is it feels like there is a bug in my ear, but when ear is checked, no bug but the fuzzy stays.  Any ideas?  Or is this one of those strange neurological symptoms from gluten?  Please don't tell me you need to get ti checked out, because all the doctors will say is "There's nothing wrong, everything's normal." BLAH!
    • Breakfast on the go is always trickiest for me - I go with a whole fruit - banana, apple - or a yogurt, or a small bag of nuts.  Occasionally, I have a couple of hardboiled eggs at my local pret a manger.  Much prefer breakfast at home, where I can make myself an egg and cheese sandwich with avocado on gluten free toast.  Or cereal ;-)
    • thanks for your input, the reason I do the blood test is because I found out my duagther has it recently and she carry dq2 gene,so must be from my husband or me...im in the process waiting for my genetic test back,,by the way,I do have lots of celiac symptom,so it could be gluten sensitiive you said,thanks again.  
    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
