where's the protein? Cake for dinner or breakfast is OK once in awhile, but you consistently eat small amounts of foods and call it a meal. This isn't good for your health.

I can't eat big meals, unfortunately. So I know I'm just snacking along the day and never having a full meal but when I do, I get bloated and uncomfortable for hours. It has been resolving at a good rate ever since I decided to go grain free. Eating cake with carrots was an utopia one week ago. Either I had the cake, or the carrots. The tea? Only a few sips of it.

At any rate, I will wait an hour and fetch some chicken breast leftovers.

Really? because I am not really "sensing this joy" at all. :lol:

Chill, I could not be any happier for you, babe! I know how long your journey with food intolerances --besides the celiac--has been.

So, yes...I am thrilled for you!

Go, chilly, Go chilly, Go chilly! (wish I had a pom-pom girl emoticon)

cooking for us and food to take to my parents.

I made some pumpkin spice cookies. Some for us & some for my folks.

Made a batch of beef stew in the crockpot, mostly for my parents, but will keep at least 1 big serving for left- over night or M's lunch.

Making tortillas soup with lots of chicken, corn and black beans for us. my folks wouldn't like it.

Made extra chicken in the crockpot ( some for the tortilla soup) to make some chicken potato soup for my folks and some left over for us.

husband was hunting all weekend, so i ate everything (leftovers) in the fridge :) and i made a big tray of eggplant rollatini (which he hates eggplant) so i have been wearing that out. he came in last night and we had shrimp francese w/rice and artichoke w/garlic butter. now, he is off trailer-trucking. can i eat the rest of the leftovers by the time he does 3000 miles??? i believe i can......

got 80 lbs of venison at the processor's - gotta make room in the freezer!!! i took out a package that said 'chops' - turns out it is 'loin' - i was going to slice it thin, marinate it and grill it on skewers but he said *wrong* cut of meat?? so, what to do with venison loin?? (marinate it whole and cook it rare??) any i'deer's ?? :D

Found this idea on the net:

GARNETT PJXG05A

1/2 Bay leaf -- crushed

1 Loin roast venison

1/2 ts Celery seeds

1/2 lb Salt pork -- cut into

Strips

1/2 ts Dry thyme

1 sm Onion -- chopped

To

10 ml Garlic -- minced

4 Whole cloves

1 tb Fresh parsley -- chopped

1 ts Beef bouillon

Taste

Fold 2 large sheets of aluminum foil together with a double fold. There should be enough to enclose the roast. Place roast on foil. Lard with pork strips. Stick cloves into loin and sprinkle other ingredients over top. Enclose roast tightly in foil and cook in 300 degree oven for approximately 45 minutes PER pound.

Have you tried any of the venison yet? If so, is it very gamey? Sometimes I find it deplorably gamey but other times it can be very good. I love good venison and one of my favourite ways to do it is to make a blackberry (or cherry or other slightly tart berry) gastrique. A loan recipe that is very good is Roasted Venison with Blackberry Sage Sauce...very appropriate for your cut.

Please let us know what the flavour is like. I am very curious!

Leftover roast chicken from last night but am re-purposing with almost a picatta sauce over celeriac/potato puree and steamed green beans. Add to that amazing Italian breadsticks I baked this morning that are soft on the inside with a great brown crisp crust.

Could you share your chicken potato soup recipe? I hate the rice noodles, but loved chicken soup. With potatoes, I think it would be a good soup for me. :)

Could be made without the milk. Really tastes best if it sits overnight in the fridge. You could add veggies. You would want to pre-cook them and put them in after the blender part.

Chunky Chicken Potato Soup

3 med potatoes, peeled & cubed

2 cups chopped onion

4 cups water

1 tbps chicken flavored bouillion granules (I use 2 packets of Herb Ox)

¼ tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

2 cups chopped, cooked chicken breast (about 1 lb of boneless)(I like to put it in the blender and make it really tiny pieces)

¼ cup skim milk

Shredded cheddar

  1. Combine first 6 ingredients & bring to a boil. Cover & reduce heat. Simmer about 30 minutes until potatoes are tender.
  2. Place half the potato mixture in an electric blender. Process until smooth.
  3. Add pureed mixture, chicken & milk back into pot. Heat.
  4. Top with shredded cheddar.
  5. Best eaten the next day, re-heated.

Just a piece of grilled fish and a glass of passionfruit juice. Not in the mood to eat, to be honest. I tried to eat some rice at lunch to see if I still could handle grains, but I am bloated and uncomfortable and have been like this the entire afternoon.

Grain free it is.

Today I made queso fresco. Chicken tacos and fried cheese for supper. The waiting is killing me!!! I didn't get around to the cheese until this afternoon and it is just about time to go check on it again. I think I may just unwrap that cheesecloth and get into it anyway.

I also made some fresh butter again. This time I'm using the butter with some peppermint marshmallows and Cocoa Pebbles to make krispy treats. Can't wait to see how they turn out.

Just got my 1st crockpot!!

So, fingers crossed pork (loin!) with leeks onions carrots with sage and tarragon. Put a few bits of potato, hoping it will thicken a bit.

More excited than is reasonable :)

    • Squirmingitch, I forgot to mention best of luck to you during the storm! I hope you are safe and that your home isn't impacted too badly! I'm on the coast in SC so we will see some storms from it but nothing near as bad as what you will have. Take care and good luck.
    • SquirmingItch, I really appreciate you gathering info for me! To answer your questions, yes, I'm on Dapsone now and have been on it for about 4.5 weeks. I have been gluten free for the same amount of time. I started on 50 mg of Dapsone which didn't seem to help much. I spoke to my doctor about it and after about a week she raised it to 100 mg. Since then I did notice a huge improvement in both my rash and itch. I no longer have any active rashes and my itching isn't completely gone but it's very minimal. I have been getting weekly blood tests done and will soon be moving to monthly.  My DH skin biopsy was done before the gluten free diet and Dapsone. My results for the skin biopsy came back as inconclusive, but even with those results, my doctor was convinced I had DH. I specifically asked her about the fact that she took the biopsy directly from the lesion rather than next to it and if that affects the result. Her explanation was that if it's a fresh enough lesion that isn't scratched, there should be IgA antibodies present. But she said that an inconclusive result isn't surprising because the IgA antibodies come and go from the skin so quickly that it can be very difficult to get a positive result, even in someone who is positive.  That's when she decided to run the celiac blood panel on me. And even though those results came back positive for the deamidated gliadin and negative for tTg, she still is very convinced that I have DH. I am happy that my doctor seems to be certain, but I would just feel better if the results were more definitive. The one other thing I am waiting on is I have been asked to attend grand rounds at the local academic hospital in 2 weeks. I guess grand rounds is where all of the academic dermatologists and dermatopathologists get together to review certain complicated cases. They will meet with me, review all of my pictures, biopsies and blood tests. My situation has been so complicated so they asked me to come. I am hoping maybe then I will get some more answers. 
    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
