Broccoli rabe most likely, if it is mostly stems.

Making some Portuguese Pulled Pork, creamy coleslaw and roasted garlic mashed potatoes. Will have leftover chocolate pots de creme with toasted hazelnuts and cacao nibs.

It has warmed up to -15 (minus 15) so my walk was unusually lovely. So much nicer than -32 and colder....brrrrrr....

Weird. I did not intend for this to appear in the square! <_<

Chicken stir here, nice bit of bok choy plus the usual suspects.

We are mostly doing wet and windy here, nearly got blown away by the beach yesterday. I think I love the windswept beach as much as the sunny one ( just in shorter doses).

Ever noticed, sometimes you can do things without trying that you can never do no matter how hard you try? :wacko:

My cure for the winter vegetable blahs is always a roast up of root vegetbles - sweet potatoes, potatoes, parsnips, onions, shallots, and a zucchini if you can find it and some tomatoes tossed in at the end.

I love things like this. I also have a nice stash of squash I haven't quite used up yet. Vegetables that don't feel all in your face but are more comfort food and wintery and palatable when all you want is meat meat and more meat.

Tonight I'm just making a quick beef and broccoli since we had lunch at about 3.

Speaking of lunch, just have to say that I have the best mom. We went over to visit and weren't going to stay long, but mom decided to make my daughter a loaf of bread so she can try grilled cheese. So we were spending a little more time with them and then my gram wants sandwiches so my mom goes out to the store and buys my girls Schar white bread and Schar chocolate dipped cookies and made them ham, turkey, salami and provolone sandwiches with pickles and dill pickle chips for lunch.

Ditto! I loves me some root veggies (with a little wine and brussel sprouts thrown in but please hold the tomatoes for me)

What a sweet Mom/Gramma! :wub: Those Schar choc- dipped cookies are pretty tasty. I had them once and thought, okay, maybe it is best if they are not around all the time as I do not need to be waddling..

Steak with Quick Onion Confit

Broccoli

with Mac & Cheese for the guys -- loving using sharp cheddar cheese spread for quick mac and cheese -- they are loving it more ;)

Walked 6 miles in the rain this morning with my dog -- she hates rain and water but was a trooper -- mile 4 she said she was done -- a little pep talk and she sprung back to it -- gotta love their spirit.

Then movie theater hopping date with my 17 year old -- Les Mis plus Silver Linings -- and I still am not tired. Is this how non celiacs feel their whole life?

Going to experiment with these spring roll wrap things. I'm kinda scared of them, they are so thin :blink: . But I'm up to the challenge.

Last night - grilled steaks ( marinated a bit in Teryaki) and some red potatoes with olive oil in foil packets. Green beans. Got some odd red potatoes. The select the ones you want we're picked over so I grabbed a bigger bag. They cooked up really soft and were yellow colored on the inside. M said they are like buttery potatoes. Today I looked at the bag and they are called Butter red potatoes and meant for mashing. We liked them.

Tonight we are having lasagna. I might add a layer of spinach so we don't have to have salad, too?

I like to put what I am fixing on here because I think this talk of conflicts and pots de creme might scare regular folks away! :)

Even if they fall apart, the fillings will still be tasty.

If its a tomato based sauce, blend it up into really small pieces and stir it in. You can pass it off as parsley if asked :P I believe you can also do this with broccoli too.

Mac and cheese i think. I forgot to lay something out and yeah... ^_^

Yo Ski!

While watching the Travel Channel today, I saw a place called Hash House A Go Go in SD.

He's big on bacon and even serves a BLT Mary (a bloody Mary BLT) That would be fun, except his place looks like gluten hell--all those waffles

and such.

Dinner tonight:

Pork tenderloin with onions

Applesauce

Roasted root veggies

Also:

I made some of Bette Hagman's English Muffins for the hubs yesterday. Toasted them up with his eggs today--and he was just so happy!

:)

Be sure to tell him "hold the bread" on yours ( apparently, he serves it with bread and thick tomato slices) One lady was making YUM YUM sounds

on camera, so it must be good.

    • The first two tests (at least in the US and most of the EU) have been replaced by the DGP tests (at the bottom) of GFinDC's list of celiac tests.  Not all celiacs test positive to the common Screening TTG.   The TTg is good and catches most and it was cheaper to run the best one (it is all about the money), but researchers realized they were not catching all celiacs.  Here is a link to the University of Chicago's celiac website.  When I was diagnosed three years ago, this site recommended just the TTg (as did the American GI Association).  Now they have expanded the list of celiac tests.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Luckily, my GI must have just attended a GI conference and he ordered the complete panel for me.  ($400). It paid off.  Only my DGP IGA was positive and the rest of the blood panel (including the popular TTG test) was negative.  My biopsies revealed some severe intestinal damage.  My new health provider only allows PCP/GP doctors to only order the TTG.  So, if I want the follow-up testing to see if I have improved or had a gluten exposure, I must go to my New GI.  Yep, it is all about the money!   Keep eating gluten and make sure your  GI takes four to six samples during the endoscopy.  Maintain copies of all your results.   Your symptoms?  Yes, there are over 300 celiac disease symptoms.  celiac disease does not just affect the gut, but mis-informed and those who do not keep up with the latest in medical, do not seem to know that!   Do not give up!  
    • It's great to hear from you, Nightsky.  Glad to also hear of your steady progress.  Living gluten free is definitely a learning process, and even the baby steps are times to celebrate.  Wish you all the luck in the world as you continue to heal for the glutenization.  
    • Hi Nicky, When you first go gluten-free your symptoms often do change.  Feeling better or worse is possible.  The healing process is a major change in our gut and that means a big change in the gut flora is likely,  which can cause symptoms by itself.  Additionally the immune system doesn't stop making antibodies on a dime.  the immune system keeps working  to defeat the gluten invaders until it is darn good and ready to take a break. You really shouldn't start the gluten-free diet until all testing is completed.  That includes a full celiac disease panel and an endoscopy with biopsy samples.  It's much easier to complete testing while still a gluten eater than it is to stop gluten and go  back on it for testing later.
    • Hi Kircket, Welcome to the forum! Yes, he could be wrong.  Not everyone passes the blood tests.  And they are just one part of the diagnostic process anyway, although an important one.   Did you have the complete celiac antibodies panel? Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA If you didn't have the full celiac disease antibodies test panel, I'd insist on getting it done.  There have been numerous people on the forum who tested positive on one antibody but not on others.
    • Three years ago I lost about 40kgs (Aussie lol) by better diet & exercise. All was going great til I stopped losing. I upped my exercise but bizarrely started gaining weight. One night a week of not being able to sleep soon became two, then virtually every night with either 1-2hrs tops or none at all. These weird symptoms started about two years ago, becoming worse in say, the last 9mnths. Then I started to get diarrhea. Occasionally then weirdly 2-3 days with multiple occurences then a day or two with nothing, then back to loose & offensive. My GP ran tests, including the TTga (hope that's  right) antibody blood test. Negative so he tells me that's not it. After 9mnths of this he shrugs and says, "I don't know what it is I've run out of ideas what ideas do you have?" Finally refers me to a gastrointerogist.  Private, of course and can't really afford it but we (my fiance and I) go. Stools and blood samples are ordered, basically bye, see you in a month. I have looked my symptoms up and they seem to point to Celiac. Today we went back. I have been having bloated stomach, sore back and limbs,  lovely burps, constant urination and crushing anxiety attacks folowed by depression (which I have never had before in my life). Admitted over the last weekend I didn't sleep for two and a half days and found myself hallucinating and crying to just be able to sleep. Mr fancy pants gastrointerogist says," Hey great news, the stools samples rule out parasites and Crohns!" I tell him how excrutiating the last month has been to which he replies, "It's not Celiac disease, (points at negative blood test results). Celiac doesnt present with diarrhea, anxiety and frquent urination all together." I also had a fecal occult blood test which showed positive & notes say are maybe due to a lower gi bleed, and a ct scan that says shows some damage which, in their words, could be due to a condition such as Celiac disease. He has booked me for a double scope as the next step, has a few ideas what it could be (won't tell me because he doesn't want me to be 'anxious'). Told me to consider that all these symptoms could be me just worrying and being anxious. Told him when this started I was not worried about anything, shrugged and said, It could stil have happened, hey, sometimes we never find out what causes it and your just stuck with diarrhea forever." Then as I was leaving he slapped me on the back and said, "Don't worry so much, see you soon." I need to have the scopes done but is it me or are the things I was told today not true?  I would honestly love it not to be Celiac disease but could he be wrong?
