The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

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.

Sounds delicious! I love how the outside edges become so crispy and the centres remain tender. Mmmm....

I'm still working with the flash frozen haddock fillets that Sprouts has for sale for $3.97 per pound, regular 9.00.

I defrosted a pound and rinsed them and cut them into serving pieces. On a dinner plate I placed about 1/2 cup of gluten free Bisquick and seasoned it with salt, pepper and paprika. I coated the fish pieces with the flour mixture flipping the pieces over several times and tapping the mixture into each piece.

In a frying pan I placed a bit of oil and about 2 TBSP gluten and dairy free Smart Balance margarine. Once the fat was hot I carefully placed the fish and cooked on each side until golden and crispy and the fish flaked. It took about 4 - 4 1/2 minutes per side.

I peeled some asparagus and dropped them into some simmering salted water for a couple of minutes. Had a slice of buttered Katz gluten free bread and it was a delicious and safe meal. Brought the rest to work today for lunch.

I plan to go back and buy 10 more pounds of fish from Sprouts so I can have some yummy, easy to meals to last me through a couple of upcoming surgeries.

They can be made a couple of different ways but I suspect in this case they are like potato pancakes (i.e. grated, mixed with egg or whatever for binding and seasoning then fried). They are very good!

Glad I asked as it would make quite a difference to use too much. Thanks a lot!

Had my "go to" meal last night because we got in late from a doctor's appointment. Had sardines packed in mustard sauce mushed up on toasted Udi bread with thinly sliced tomatoes and lots of salt and pepper. Had some pickles and corn totilla chips - Santitos I think. I know that alot of people don't like sardines, but I grew up eating them and like them. We never had the flavored kind back then, but these are good.

Tonight my 12-year old granddaughter is spending the night with me and we're having pork and sauerkraut (it's in my crockpot), mashed potatoes and applesauce. She loves all of it and has for years.

No idea what to make for dinner tonight yet. Maybe chili bake topped with cornbread. But last night I made chicken and dumplings using the gluten-free bisquick. It was super tasty and even better for leftovers for lunch today. I didn't really follow any recipe and added cut up red potatoes and carrots to add a veggie component to it.

Let's see-- Thurs I had Caesar's gluten-free Lasagne, yesterday was Amy's gluten-free mac & cheese, today was Thai Kitchen Pad Thai... yes, there is a theme going here... my hubby had oral surgery (4 teeth taken out) on Thursday, so until he heals, it's easy meals all around at our house. We already have more than enough to deal with here!!

Leftovers tonight! :D :D :D

and Lemon Lover's Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream Frosting. I've been wanting to make these for months and today my granddaughter and I did. They are so yummy! I only had one lemon so saved 1 tsp. of grated lemon rind for the frosting and dumped the rest into the cake. It worked fine. Definitely a recipe I'll use again.

    • Yes, I am in Houston, TX. Can anyone recommend a good GI in Houston, lots of experience with celiac?  
    • I am sorry to hear about your mother.   It is not so hard to get a medical doctor to order a celiac panel -- especially if your father was diagnosed with celiac disease.  Our family GP did not blink an eye when I first asked my daughter to be tested.    If you think your doctor will disregard your legitimate request, you can either fire him or put the request in writing and send it certified (attorneys love documentation!)  I agree that our doctors should support us.  I have a great GI, but my GP  is pretty clueless when it comes to celiac disease, but she admits it.    She does always order all the lab tests I request.  Perhaps it is because I come in with supporting medical documentation and evidence.  If she was not supportive to my satisfaction, I would find a new doctor.   Again, you can go gluten free in your own.   Chance are you have celiac disease.    But it is hard.  Really hard if you do not have the support of your family.  That is my concern.   Are you in the US?  
    • I've just read SO MUCH about the long, arduous process of getting a positive diagnosis through traditional medicine - I'm not sure I want to put myself through all that. Since my father WAS positively diagnosed - I carry the celiac gene and another gene that predisposes me to gluten sensitivity - and my fecal tests for gliadin were SO elevated - there are enough reasons for me to go to a gluten free diet. The true medical diagnosis would just make it easier for my family/friends to believe the necessity of it. My children are adults and not particularly health care nuts. I doubt they would take their own risk seriously without a medical diagnosis. I'm afraid my husband, while he is trying to be supportive at this point, will grow weary of all the things I no longer serve at meals and all the places we will no longer go to because there are not gluten free alternatives on the menu. A medical diagnosis would make it easier for him, long term, I think.  I don't have much faith in general in our western health care system. My mother died 6 months ago at age 82 after 4-5 years of many different health issues. She had given up the keys to her car in her late 70's after getting lost several times. I became her designated driver to all doctor appointments, procedures, hospital stays, etc. The incompetence and disregard I saw blew me away. I'm surprised any elderly people survive our health care system once they get on that revolving door. The reason I started seeing a naturopath is that I am looking for an alternative to medical doctors for most of my health issues as I age. I know there are some things I still have to see them for - and of course, they are essential in trauma and emergency situations. But I am on a quest to follow a more holistic approach to my health care. If this is the path I am choosing, then I have to follow my gut (no pun intended) in situations like this. I think the only reason I would go through the medical testing would be for other people - not me. It seems to me, that with so many people being gluten intolerant these days, a decent M.D. would listen to a patient that was adamant about their intent to live gluten free - positive celiac diagnosis or not (and especially with the gene and stool test results). I mean, they don't tell vegetarians they have to eat meat ... and vegetarianism is a personal choice. Sorry if I seem to be rambling ... this is all so new, and I'm trying to find my way.    
    • This subject is often raised on this site, especially by women.  I am prompted to raise it again today, having spoken to my doctor who has said that she has noticed that celiacs often have thin hair, especially in later years.   Rather than just accept what she thinks is just the inevitable I would really like to hear from anyone who really has seen great improvement in their own hair and what they did. There are lots of tips on line but I am particularly interested in hearing from someone who has actually been there, done that, and now has better hair!
