Chicken and yellow rice tonight:-) Maybe some black beans...

Only draw back is that I have not been able to find an MSG free yellow rice mix (dye free and of course gluten free though :-)

http://www.occasionalomnivore.com/2009/08/16/msg-free-chicken-and-yellow-rice/

does this work for you? :)

Question---if the "yellow" is coming from saffron--can you just use saffron threads and skip all the additives/MSG in any "mixes" you would purchase? I can't do MSG either and avoid all packaged things for this very reason.

It shall be soup and rice.

Mom and grandma agree that it'd be okay (only would be a problem that long is if it was a dairy product).

Canada? Funny girl. Yep it does that here. :(

It was very nice here today, warm but a bit cloudy.

I made L2T's pasta with her ricotta filling for dinner today. First try was too dry and they split when I tried to fold them. Tried again and it was great. We put a Florentine sauce on them with some artichokes. So good and everyone loved them.

I am going to play around with the recipe using different flours.

She will be so pleased to hear this !! :)

Now, you know I meant no disrespect about the Canada question. I know it can swing wildly--just like in NYS. xxoo

The other day I converted my gnocchi recipe to gluten free and had it with a pesto I made with almonds. I was so happy it turned out I was clapping. :P

Hey thanks! I will try this. The yellow is coming from saffron (and tumeric), this has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid. Even with the prepackaged stuff my wife does really well, but given the opportunity to cook fresh I will take do it.

I love saffron, too. Then, you probably would like:

Risotto with saffron

and veal marsala

That's what we're having tonight.

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.

where do you purchase such food of the gods?!! i, too, have only tried the betty crocker - and thought: surely i can find a recipe that won't cost $5 a box and make it myself... i am braver at mixing flour(s) now :)

i was thinking of trying butternut squash gnocchi (accidentally grew butternut squash lolz) as i have a ton of them (they grew in the compost bin hahahaa they survived the lawnmower :D)

here's a few nights dinners i made:

bratwurst reubens w/homemade sauerkraut (pot cheese & pickles) too hot to really cook that night :)

oooooh! oooooh! i accidentally made 'panko' breadcrumbs!!!! i usually dry out gluten-free bread ends in the oven - low temp - till its pretty well dried out and then i put it in the "bullet" <chopper thingy> well, this time i was impatient and only thawed the bread out - it was still pretty moist - put it in the chopper and it was wanting to stick together and clump so i shook it and i'll be darned if it didn't resemble panko. so, i spread it out on foil and baked it for about 5 min and they turned out GREAT!! that night we made: panko & herb crusted cod with butternut fritters and maple dijon mustard (with rice)

and all that talk of ragout...

venison ragout over spiral pasta w/steamed broccoli i'll be eating that again tonight yummmmmmz

chicken cheese empenadas (sp) w/refried beans & pico de gallo

chicken w/mushroom gravy, mashed taters, roasted brussels sprouts w/shallots & red wine vinegar

now i have a ton of sauerkraut left in the fridger :) i'm thinking pork & crockpot... i still have some pierogies in the freezer.... hmmmm....

I'm not making anything except another apple/huckleberry crisp. The one I made last night is already gone. My kids fought over it like wild animals....LOL

Last night I made sweet and sour pork with rice for dinner. My husband came home and said he didn't feel well and wanted comfort food. He wanted my fried chicken strips (dubbed crack chicken by everyone I know because it's so addictive and good), mashed potatoes, mixed veggies, and apple/huckleberry crisp. So, I made 2 meals last night and the family can eat leftovers!! I did make a second crisp though, it's in the oven.......

My Venice Bakery crusts finally arrived!!! Okay okay, so I didn't actually order them until last weekend. They shipped Monday and arrived today so it wasn't that awful a wait but I thought I just may die wanting pizza.

So, we only got the sample pack of three 5 inch crusts to try them until we were sure we wanted to order more. For the first time in 10 months I had pizza that had crust with the an amazing pizza crust texture. The taste was also great. We simply made them into pepperoni pizzas since they were so tiny but we plan on ordering more right away.

We are having a french leek pie in the new crust I bought from Whole Foods, with a green mixed salad, and baked apples stuffed with dates and brown sugar.

    • 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. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
