The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Simple steak with noodles and green beans tonight since my youngest was having a playdate and I was starting to make cookies for christmas.

I am so so happy with how the cookies are turning out this year...made flourless peanut butter cookies, chocolate chip from the Pamela's baking and pancake mix package and also used the Pamela's in a recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies that calls for wheat flour (they are perfect!!!). Yesterday I also made no bake cookies for my neighbor, peppermint fudge and rocky road fudge.

:) It's about midnight now and I just put all the cookies away and I really wanted to eat at least one of them. Hubby tried them and said they were yummy.

I'll bet. :) You have excellent willpower. I always taste everything I make (I have to make sure it's "okay")

This has been very difficult of late -- I never realized how much I tested the food I cook. I've learned to use the "testers" living with me -- but am still nervous when I entertain -- hard not knowing that it tastes good.

Absolutely sure that RBJ tastes fantastic -- and have decided this shall be my Christmas Day dessert -- just for me once the day's festivities are done -- I'm having dreams of tasting the magic potion :) Everyone else has requested it as one of our snacks earlier in the day.

I wish, it's not so much willpower as having to watch my sugar intake. I have my hubby do the tasting for me. Today I'm making the brownies and golden kolacky for christmas so I am just adding chicken to last nights noodles and green beans.

I've got an eager hubby taste-tester, too.(and I need to watch my sugar intake as well) Good thing they are so willing. :)

We had a little dinner party last night and I am beat so, it's a bunch of "encores" to pick from:

--crostinis with goat cheese and roasted, marinated peppers

--antipasta platter

--shrimp cocktail

--beef tenderloin

--the salmon is gone (I let my cat have it :D)

--potatoes gratin with 3 cheeses

and I know Karen wants to know this:

--Tiramisu

I have to say, I cheated and used Scharr ladyfingers, rather than make my own, and they worked out very well.

I soaked them in the espresso syrup instead of just brushing it on. Softened them up just fine. I let it cure overnight

and topped with sweetened whipped cream and dusted the whole thing with cocoa powder, cinnamon and shaved chocolate curls.

NOTE TO LOVE 2 and SKI :

The redunkulous bacon jam (RBJ) was a huge hit and I gave some to my friend as a gift. She agreed with me---crazy good on the beef.

Never got to trimming the tree, it's still Naked, but the tree skirt draped around it with the cat happily snoozing on it was "good enough".

I'll do it tomorrow...maybe

I sent that link to Santa on the slopes of Vail! He was looking for an cute apron for me, not sure if he already got one. Not sure if this can get here in time. We should all order one and freak Cafe Press out!

It could be a New Year's present :)

........and yes, if we all hit them with orders, they may wonder what the Sam Hill is going on.

Made coconut-herbed pizza with cherry-tomato sauce, cayenne pepper, oregano, garlic, baby romaine and jumbo shrimp. Not bad, for a first time, but a pizza in a brownie pan is a bit sad.

    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure. View the full article
    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
