The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

I didn't feel particularly great yesterday, I've been getting that run down feeling and last night it finally bit me. I think I just have some random bug or another. Thankfully I did the whole turkey thing on Saturday and got it all stored up early so I was set for this I guess. Mashing up some squash tonight and a very little turkey on the side with some ginger ale and bitters. At least tomorrow is a day to do nothing for me. :)

Think I might be the odd one out over the pond today!

Beef stew with red wine and winter vegetables, in crockpot as we speak.

Just had a severe weather warning, storm to hit in the next hour. Attempting to get Mr Mw and son home before it comes then stay home cosy.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

Extra special wishes to those of you adding birthday cake to the menu (or maybe cocktails). You know who you are :)

Me, too. Our Thanksgiving was ages ago. We are having similar to you - I am brasing beef in red wine et.al. for rich, luxuriant Beef Burgundy. We will have buttery whipped potatoes with sizzling mustard seeds and steamed broccoli. No dessert for us - we've been bad. ;)

To my U.S. friends, have the happiest of Thanksgivings! :)

Happy Thanksgiving all:). I was up to my elbows in bacon yesterday--cooked up a bunch for the GPS and nibbled on it the whole time I was making the sauce.

Enjoy!!

I'm having gluten-free pumkin pie and roasted veggies.......that's what I'm taking to sister's house. I've been reacting to something off and on for a week now and I'm not feeling so well today.

We are meeting friends at PF Changs so no cooking or dishes tonight! :).

LTT, was it you who said how good the Glutino Genius bread was? Tried it today and you were so right. Puts everything I've tried so far to shame.

That bread is good, isn't it? It and the new Kinnickinnik soft breads are my favourite commercial breads. Worthy of sandwiches and larger than a dime! :D

    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
    • A colonoscopy is not used to diagnose celiac disease.  An endoscopy is used to obtain biopsies in the small intestine.
