Addy, I am so glad you had a fantastic day, what an amazing experience, you look fab. I can't get over that menu,, amazing.

Edited to add, I wonder if love2 could sort the rest of that menu out to be gluten-free too, just for the heck of it?!

My guess is that what is left of the menu would be easy. Glazed bananas should be idiot proof to make gluten free. Ditch the garlic bread, and frankly it isn't needed with that cheese bread. (I have got to find a recipe! My husband is begging me to learn to make it.) I don't know what those desserts are exactly, I did see someone getting chocolate cake. Meh. who wants chocolate cake when there is creme brulee? The chickens off the grill probably both have some sort of marinade easily made gluten free, my guess is soy sauce. My guess is the crab is imitation. (It was adorable though, they cut up a tomato on the back to look like a crab.) They didn't even have the raspberry dressing or strawberry salad last night... so just stop serving them! The pasta too. Fixed.

I didn't get sick though. Not gluten sick. Maybe a little overeating sick. :ph34r: I felt like I needed to be rolled out of there like the blueberry girl from Willy Wonka. (The original.)

Tonight. Tacos! I picked up a new taco seasoning to try. They have some interesting new ones at the store closest to home. My husband won't eat the ones I like, and I can't eat any of the simple mainstream ones because they all have either yeast or MSG and cost me my vision within 30 minutes. Scary stuff, taco seasoning. This new one is like a liquid in a pouch. Some lime/cilantro something or other, can't wait.

Thank you!! I like it so far even if it is a bit weird. Nice to be in good company. If you had told me a year ago I'd be so 'free from' I wouldn't have believed it.. You know that whole be careful what you wish for thing? I think I put in an order for a healthier diet. At least this &%$#@ disease is getting me there :)

The "silver lining of celiac"?

Sounds like our household :)

I love potatoes, but I am wondering how much they really like me.

Like a traveling chemist's lab.

Could you imagine if we parked those two things, set it all up and got the cooking going?

The aroma alone would attract cabana boyz like mad!! (and probably any animals in the area....)

This is dinner tonight, but I'm using the white rice variation and the only mustard I have is Gulden's.

Aren't men and animals pretty much the same thing?

This could be our chase car!

I have one of these we could use. Only ours has real roll bars, real racing seats and harnesses and a souped up engine and suspension.

I'm riding with Karen! (Yeah, so now my true side shows. I like to be topless.)

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
