I made boneless skinless chicken thighs again and some broccoli, then did up a quick cheese sauce and served it over baked potatoes.

Those burgers sound delicious!

I am happy to report that my first ever fried chicken (yes, ever) turned out freakin amazing. The only thing between me and a second piece was thoughts of buttoning my pants tomorrow. :ph34r:

I'm trying a new recipe, Cuban-style pork and sweet potato stew. It's done in a slow cooker and counts only 7 points on Weight Watcher's. Sounds like a winner, but I'll let you know later. I'm doing a black bean and corn salad with it.

We have become tired of the same old stuff, so I am trying to spread out to different cultures. I am "deep South" so I have found most of the ways to alter comfort food like fried chicken, mac and cheese, and all those garden vegetables with cornbread. Thai is easy and usually I don't even have to modify the recipes. Since someone told me about Tinkyada pasta, I have done quite a few Italian dishes.

My great revealation is that if I make a game of it, this gluten -free business is not so bad. Beats the heck out of being sick!

Mmm. That sounds good , let us know how it goes :)

I have my eye out for a good Thai green curry recipe if anyone has one :) :)

Making it fun is definitely the way to go. I like finding a new ingredient and trying it lots of ways. I can't get enough sprouts at the moment...we have pork tonight, probably stir fried ( with sprouts if Mr Mindwarp isn't home, without if he is)

Carnitas brewing in the crockpot - smells good.

Mixing flavors -- have some left over corn bread so going to make regular stuffing, but throw in a bit of green chili.

For me japanese sweet potato fries and pork without peppers.

Just registered - well waitlisted for Chemistry and Biology -- crazy I am voluntarily signing up for courses I successfully avoided in Business School -- here's hoping everyone on the waitlist gets in :D

Our little co-ed! good for you taking classes again! I ducked Chem classes too ---but married a chemist. Life balances out.

BTW, it was a ridiculous -10 this morning, so you would be thrilled living here. Me? not so much <_<

Dinner tonight:

Roasted chicken

Smashed potatoes for the hubs

Green beans (and I made a few extra sweet potatoes last night so I'll fry them up in coconut oil for me.)

Thanks Sora

Looks gooood.

It may take me weeks to introduce all those ingredients on my elimination diet, but so worth it. Everyone has to have a goal, right? :)

My elliptical is right on the other side of my desk, so I actually can see it over the top of my monitor. I have been glaring at it all day. Evil torture device. It feels good to be able to be able to exercise but I'm not fond of the whole getting used to it thing. Can we both just hide in closets until our bodies adjust?

I'm too used up to cook, I'll oven the 2 pieces of fried chicken that survived last night intact and make some mashed potatoes to go with it and some corn. I hardly think I'll be suffering. :D

You're welcome. It will be worth the wait!

Dinner tonight is pork burgers with my green tomato chutney, steamed potatoes (sweet potato for me) and carrots, green salad.

Lightly curried chicken and veggies over white rice. I used leftover chicken that didnt make it into the cheese sauce last night, needed something quick and easy since I watched my little cousin today and I don't think I have ever been so happy to have a child go home.

in such cold weather.

I shoulda been at your house last night! That sounds sooooo good.

We're having a heatwave. It was up to 40 today. I had to go out this afternoon and just wore long sleeves and completely skipped a coat. This is of course following our extremely rare freezing rain storm yesterday.

Pork tonight. Pigs are such magical creatures. BBQ loin, mashed taters, garlic fried green beans. My husband is pretty sure that it is green bean fried garlic. Good thing he doesn't mind the smell, and I can be 100% sure he is not a vampire.

Tonight I made Creamy Shrimp and Grits with large stone ground grits. Sauce included thingers such as white wine, garlic, lemon juice, tomatoes, chipotles en adobo... For something green and relatively healthy (!) I added peas.

And for dessert I made Chocolate Pots de Creme for my dear husband. Talk about decadent and truffle-like.

Plus we had more bacon candy and homemade ginger ale.

Had to update and thank my hubby --

I didn't feel like preparing anything for me...so he heated coconut oil....added baby brussel sprouts....then skinny broccoli -- always forget the name of the thin baby stuff -- then added diced salmon jerky!!!! finished off with a few green onions and dumped on top of zu-noodles and mixed :D

One happy foodie here -- hmmm I wonder what he is angling for?

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
