Oh man, K---that sounds LUSCIOUS.....what time should I be there? I can make margaritas or sangria.

Sounds like total party food to me. After Karen's we'll hit your place.

I was making

Veal marsala and Risotto Milanese and sauteed chard, but now, I am not so sure.

I want what you're all having. :D

Last night, I made "everything but the kitchen sink nachos"

(you know, refried beans, jalapenos, guac, olives, chicken, salsa, sour cream, etc ...anything I found in the fridge....goes on top)

Have to get in all my cheese consumption before Jan.2. :)

Ugh. Your veal Marsala and risotto and swiss chard sound absolutely disgusting. ^_^ That is such a classic, wondrous meal. I think we have room for all our meal ideas (at least my tummy does - it is now used to eating a bit more than usual). Lots of flying and airports involved but I think it'll be worth it! :P

:D yes....but this just brings this convo back to our original thought.

If we all just lived in our cottages in the gluten-free compound, we'd be able to graze from house to house every day.

I've got it -- we train the cabana boys to make all our recipes and send them out to run our Allergy Friendly Restaurant Franchise -- while we sit back and think of new delicious treats -- which will keep the restaurants popular and profitable -- which will provide us with all the toys, cabana boys, travel funds and groceries we need to live.....

....Happily Ever After....

doh....totally forgot...and forgot to write it down...but am making again in the morning -- salmon is soaking in salt water in the frig overnight -- that is the first step

most recipes call for soy and I substituted molasses -- still not certain if molasses is good for me -- but know I can't do soy sauce -- will post marinade as soon as I whip some up tomorrow morning -- that would be about 18 hours from now -- hmmm what time is it there?

Editied...thank goodness you said that...just realized I only soaked in brine for a few hours last time then marinated overnight - double doh!!!

Have you tried the Coconut Secret product, Coconut Aminos (from Whole Foods)?? It is a pretty good soy sauce substitute. That's what I find hardest, the things you season/sauce with like soy, tomatoes, lemon juice. There absolutely is NO substitute for tomatoes except the one RiceGuy makes called NoMato, but I can't do beets either. :( And vinegar is not a substitute for lemon juice :ph34r: -- at least not when you're talking fish. Okay, end of rant! Feel better now.

This is the one I am following. It seems pretty standard. It isn't spicy. It tastes good. I think the choices of dried peppers I had at the grocery were too mild. Next time we are near the Mexican market, we can get better peppers and try again. Or maybe a mix of peppers next time.

Sausage and mash for dinner. Supper was stilton camembert port salut and soft goats cheese. Two more days of cheese to go. Nice bit of brie in the fridge for tomorrow. So that is 6 remaining meals, or, as I like to think of it, 6 opportunities for cheese and bacon. 2nd January here we come...

coconut aminos? oh my...maybe I'll have to run over there early and put my jerky on hold -- hubby says the soy sauce version does taste better -- but since I can't taste it I can't compare and was quite happy with my "safe" batch. Vinegar does however help with some other sauces -- but sadly it does not replace lemon :(

I went to the store for meat to make burgers and got totally distracted by Aidell's sausages marked down. Burgers got pushed back to tomorrow. Tonight we had some Italian sausages and a little pasta and sauce. I attempted to force my husband to eat Classico sauce, I even pureed it so it wouldn't be chunky. Didn't work out particularly well. I keep crossing my fingers for veal to go on sale so I can make sauce but fate is not cooperating with me. I may have to just give in and buy it at full price.

Coconut aminos are a blessing to those of us who cannot do soy!!!. (I still cannot do soy)

I'm sorry, but there is no real decent sub for a tomato in a standard tomato- based recipe. I know, I tried. <_< (could not have toms for a year or so )

My culinary life sucked for a long time. I could not swallow dozens of food groups (citrus was a big one) without severe burning GI pain and I was miserably sad..

But whatever you are trying to make with "tomato sauce", there is almost always a plan B......or you can leave it out.

Except a BLT...then you're screwed.

Or learn to love a good ole "BL".... with canola mayo. see? Plan B. :)

If I can help anyone convert a recipe without some foods, I'll give it a shot. Or , I have no doubt that LOVE2 can tell you what to do for "subs"

If there is one thing I have learned in the past few years, it is this:

There's always a a plan B ...........or C or D.

My plan B for a BLT is a BLA which is not blah at all, and it has no mayo with soy in it. Instead of slicing the avocado you mash it on to each of your toast slices, top each slice with bacon, put the lettuce in the middle and mash it together. Not only do you avoid the tomato and the mayo, but the avocado does not fall out in little pieces along the edges! :D

What is wrong with plan BBB? You can weave bacon into a breadlike substitute, then just put bacon in the middle. Bam, BBB sandwich! This covers everything except for those of us who aren't supposed to be eating bacon. <_<

I love the avocado idea! I can eat tomatoes but I may just try that for fun one day when I trial avocados. Sounds yummy but I do so hate how they slide off of and out of everything. Slippery little suckers!

BLT -- can't eat the Bacon, Tomato, Bread or Mayo -- but can have salmon jerky -- yum -- it is in the dehydrator now -- threw it on the back porch this time so my house won't smell like teriyaki salmon this time.

Oh -- and I make carrot, garlic onion puree for my "spaghetti" sauce and it is pretty darn good - am I still looking forward to my first BLT on Canyon Bakehouse - YOU BET ;)

SHROOMIE -- I didn't forget:

Jerky -- have only tried Salmon with this method -- will update when I try other meat.

Slice about 1/3" thick.

Soak in one quart cold water plus 1/2 cup NON-Iodiozed Salt for about a half hour

Rinse well and pat dry

Marinate overnight in fridge

Dehydrate for 10-12 hours -- I use an inexpensive dehydrator I found in the Amazon.-- I have read you can do this on oven turned to warm or a woman I met at my local nursery told me I could use the broiler of an old fashioned oven -- the pilot does the work - which I happen to have and am going to try soon.

Marinade (original recipe)

1/2 cup Soy Sauce

2 Tbsp Brown Sugar

1/4 tsp Freshly Ground Pepper

1 tsp Liquid Smoke

My first batch was made with:

1/4 cup Molasses

1/4 cup Brown Sugar

1/4 tsp Freshly Ground Pepper

I'm happy with my substitute -- but my fisherman says the original recipe is slightly better -- going to pick up some coconut amino very soon to give that a try.

You have to be careful with these lists, you can't tell how old it is. Ingredients change. The lists can't possibly have every food in the store so don't limit yourself to them. Not sure if this person really knows what is gluten-free and what isn't. Check what country these lists are for, too. Sometimes ingredients are different in different countries.

The best way to determine if there is gluten in an item is to read the ingredients.

For example- Frito Lay USA has a bigger list on line. http://www.fritolay.com/your-health/us-products-not-containing-gluten-ingredients.html

You know Irish, the solution to tight pants is to stay home and in jammies. If you aren't wearing pants, they won't be tight!

Happy Anniversary!!! Or um, whatever you're calling it tonight. Sounds lovely.

We're following through on our burgers plan tonight. I'll make some arepas and if everything goes as planned they'll come out of the oven just in time to cut them open and dress them for the burgers. I can't get a food diary out of my husband but I am pretty sure I have pinpointed what is causing his problems, and I don't know how in 5 years I missed it. Anyway, it seems almost certainly to be greasy foods. He won't be happy about it, but our fries are going in the oven tonight. :ph34r:

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
