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.

    • 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!
