For lunch today I had two yellow squash sauteed with bacon. That was tasty!

I also cooked a whole chicken for the first time a few days ago using this super easy recipe and it was outstanding: http://www.epicuriou...-Chicken-231348

Last night I made a berry crisp using two bags of frozen mixed berries from trader joe's, tossing them in some gluten-free flour mix, then mixing together 1c of gluten-free flour mix with 1/2c sugar & 1/2c butter, some walnuts & some spices and then using that on top of the berries. Yum.

I made these Chicken Wings (again) tonight. I used ketchup instead of the tomato paste. Gave it more flavor and I always have ketchup but not tomato paste. I boiled the wing tips in water with onion and celery. Froze this for the next time I need chicken broth. For the ginger, I always grate up a piece of ginger when I buy it. Then I freeze the grated ginger in little clumps. Keeps much better then a fresh piece of ginger. The next time I make this I'll double the batch of chicken wings. Then freeze half of them after cooking in the crock-pot.

Slow-Cooker Sticky Wings

Serves 12

In step 3, the oven rack should be 10 to 12 inches from the broiler element. Don

I bought a George forman grill, its dedicated to gluten free. So I'm grilling individual servings of salmon. Then grilling vegetables in oil,(onions colored peppers and asparagus) cooking up red rice and celery with cheese whiz (my grandaughter is 8 so must think like a kid lol) dessert will be gluten free vanilla ice-cream drizzled with homemade raspberry syurp. I'm also making croissants for the first time, so will serve them as well if they turn out. I'm retired now so have lots of time to prepare meals.I think though for people who are short of time, taking one evening or afternoon when not working to prepare meals and then freeze individual servings is a good idea. I do this all the time. Put the soups I make, or mac and cheese, or tuna casserole etc into small plastic or tinfoil containers freeze them and give them to my daughter so she has something quick for her girls when there in a hurry. It seems to be working well.

Yesterday I made ground nut stew over rice. Tonight I'm going to make some chicken fried rice with the leftover rice. Also thinkign about making some cabbage spring rolls with rice paper wrappers. Will depend on how ambitious I get. Chicken fried rice with lots of veggies is a meal in itself but I'm really craving spring rolls too. :)

It WAS going to be a simple soup and salad night for my family, but then I found that recipe for Brazillian cheese bread in another thread here, and I have to add it to our menu. They look soooo delicious, and I have everything we need right in our house.

we're allowed to post recipes that we get from magazines or cookbooks, right? Well, the yam fries were my own simple recipe: just cut up the yams, tossed with a bit of olive oil, chile/chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, cinnamon, and a touch of raw sugar (would have used brown sugar, but mine is contaminated because I put a piece of bread in it to keep it soft :P), salt and pepper to taste. The dip is not dairy free, but was equal parts sour cream and balkan style or greek yogurt, mixed with grainy mustard, some chopped parsley, a bit of lemon juice, and two cloves of garlic that I put through the garlic press. Mix it all up and let it chill before serving, it picks up the flavors better.

Here are the other two recipes, from Clean Eating mag:

Sirloin & Peppery Tomato Reduction

with squash-onion stir-fry (I didn't do the squash-onion stir-fry this time)

Ingredients:

1 tsp chile powder

Sprouts has a sale on flash frozen haddock fillets - Regular 9.00 per pound - on sale for 3.97 so I bought a couple of pounds. I defrosted 1 lb and cut into serving size pieces. In a pryrex dish I melted some dairy free Smart Balance parve margarine in the microwave and then salted and peppered it. I took the pices of fish and coated them with the seasoned melted margarine and covered the dish with foil and cooked at 350 for 40 minutes. I also picked up some delicious asparagus and steamed that and cooked some white rice. It was very easy on the tummy, very sweet and mild and I have enough leftovers for lunch today at work.

Last night I fixed orange-glazed pork chops, rice and fresh asparagus.

Tonight I finally dragged the bag of BRM pizza crust out of the pantry and made it. Well, what can I say...the toppings were good! :lol: I can do better but at least I got rid of it as I bought it quite awhile ago...from now on it's on to making my own from scratch.

Tonight I had (again, another batch made for the freezer) Sticky Wings (recipe above) for me. I cooked four large pork chops (3 into the freezer for quick meals) with mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts for DH. This coming week it's Fish Sandwich (will use Against the Grain Baguettes) with Wasabi Coleslaw (recipe off the Internet), Lisa's Stuffed Green Pepper Casserole ( http://catholicmomof2.blogspot.com/2008/09/stuffed-peppers-casserole.html ) and Cowboy Pizza (Against the Grain pizza crust and Pappa Murphy's idea. Not missing much from being gluten free at my house.

Yum. I know these as Hasselback Potatoes. Either way, they are good. I also add slivers of garlic in between the slices but then I LOVE garlic. Then top with Parmesan. Sometimes I get a little carried away...:P

I make mine with dried rosemary tucked in, minced garlic on top, and generously sprinkled salt. (And olive oil.)

They are wonderful. I made mine tonight with pork tenderloin. Amazing.

    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone! 
    • Welcome to the club you never wanted to join! The good thing about this club is that you don't have to take any pills, get radiation or chemo, or stick yourself with a needle every day. Things could be much worse than this. Does your brother live close? If so he could go to your same savvy doc. That would be great! Also what about your mom?
    • Hi There! I am Aly and I have suffered seriously for about 4 years with an huge increase in symptoms. I just recently started a gluten free diet a few months ago and I am sure I make mistakes because I feel it when I do. Your symptoms are a lot like mine and after many blood tests and visits to Neurologist still no answers. They diagnosed with relapse/remission MS for all these years and now say its not that. It's Auto-immune but no answers. They never tested me for Celiac's but A friend suggested I try going gluten free. Here are my symptoms below.  See if you relate or if anyone can relate. Heat Sensitivity, Nerves jumping in face and eyes, sometimes pain and redness around the skin of eyes, kinda pinkish.... occasional trimmers coupled with loss of coordination and balance along with in and out slurred speech, a other varying waves of relapse include Extreme fatigue and a huge fog comes over me. I can't sit up or stand without getting dizzy and feel like passing out. For a few days of the relapse It's just bed rest. The other parts are off and on having to use cane. Up and down, symptoms change but eventually the waves grow dim and I go back to being normal for a while. Things seem to get exacerbated when I do to much like go more than 4 -5 hours without taking a break and resting, lifting anything to heavy...so it seems to be straining things lead me to relapse. I used to be go go go...on the run but life has changed and I find that although I am eating gluten free and being careful not to relapse, I entered another a month ago and I am having to get IV steroid infusion tomorrow to break the cycle of this one. Just when I think I am beginning to feel better and go do something I go right back down. Its seems Gabapentin, Baclofen, and LOTS of rest only get me where I need to be again. It's frustrating. I wanted to share as well so that we can combine forces to get some answers! I have decided to go to a Allergy Clinic of sorts to try and get tested for environmental and food allergies. I am sorry you do not have funding for care. See if there is local clinic that can at least run some preliminary blood work on you. I am not sure if you can see one now in your state being 17 but there is usually a 211 or a 311 line in most cities that will give you the list of places you can go for free or on sliding scale. See if they will run any allergy panels as well. I have found that we have to be proactive in our own care because sometimes there is no simple answer and the more we talk one another with the research sometimes we do on own, we find out more than 4 years of going to a doctor could ever tell you. Thanks for all your input here. I look forward to being a member and helping where I can! I will send updates as I get them. Blessings to you all! Aly
