well, guys I have had enough turkey, so Chebe Pizza tonight with garlic oil, shallots, BACON! and 3 cheeses.and champagne (still celebrating birthday week) why not? I'm alive! I'm alive!

and still baking....

You should have champagne cake. Just one more way to enjoy the good stuff. :D

Last night I made rice sort of successfully. It wasn't burnt or undercooked, or both at the same time! It is mildly overcooked but that is at least progress. So, orange chicken tonight to use it all up because by God we'll eat what I didn't ruin. :lol: If I feel super ambitious while I'm in the kitchen I might also make myself some muddy buddies with my coconut butter instead of peanut butter.

We are still in turkey mode -- a 24 pound bird's carcass takes nearly as much fridge space as he did before Turkey Day. So tonight is turkey soup -- only have to leave out the tomato and wide noodles for my share --- and loads of leftover to freeze :)

Rare crusty gluten filled bread for hubby - Schar's french bread for kids. I'll smell hubby's and live vicariously - nope I've never been glutened by smelling something B)

Chocolate Mousse Like Substance for dessert :D

OMG... you said a swear!!!

I postponed my tacos until tomorrow. I wasn't thinking and had a cup of OJ with my orange chicken last night forgetting that I am supposed to be limited my citrus. Oops, half blind. I'll be right as rain by morning but not up to fumbling around the kitchen tonight. I let my husband grill steak.

Bean soup with pieces of grilled chicken breast.

The grain-free diet is working, but several food trialings in the past several weeks didn't work out and I took one step back instead of moving forward.

I had some spaghetti sauce laying around my fridge and my husband found poison nuggets at the store so he had his chicken and I had pasta and a salad... with CROUTONS! My first in a year, they were so heavenly. I think I had more croutons than salad in my bowl. :lol:

Men had take out.

Last night, I tried a new recipe.

Savory Butternut Squash Souffle. It even had bacon in it.

I thought it would be delish. What can go wrong with fresh veggies, savory herbs, eggs, bacon?

BLECH. Not a keeper.

Tonight: Chicken thighs, roasted asparagus, acorn squash

    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
