That pic makes my teeth chatter! You guys all look so happy though, yay!!! :D

Apparently the hubs was so thrilled with the fried chicken that he declared we were having it again. :blink: I'm gonna be so fat I won't be able to wear my yoga pants and I'll have to drag my fat arse onto my elliptical nekkid. :ph34r:

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.

yes, it's one of those Murphy's law-type thingers.. :D

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.

    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.
