My adventures in meat continue with a pot roast recipe that looks easy enough that I can do it: http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/pot_roast/

I'm making it in a crockpot - I didn't have any red wine so instead I used 1/4c beef stock 1/4c sherry and I added 1 tsp cinnamon as one commenter suggested (I love cinnamon!). This is my first pot roast ever so we'll see how it turns out! I also plan to add carrots and new potatoes in the last hour.

HAWAIIAN HAYSTACKS. Man I love my crockpot. Makes working and being your stereotypical housewife so much easier.

Recipe? Heck yes, I will post it...

Cut the chicken up into small cubes and toss into the crockpot.Chop up half an onion and toss that in. (The yellow onion that is out on the top shelf.)There are some cream of chx soup mixes in the cupboard. Take two of those (they are in little box like things) and put them in the crockpot.Add the rest of the open soy milk carton and the rest of the open rice milk carton to the soup and chicken mix. Add about an eighth of a cup of arrowroot starch.Spice with Salt, Pepper, Poultry Seasoning (not too shabby on the poultry seasoning)Turn crockpot on high, and then when you leave this afternoon turn it on low.(Don't forget to stir now and then... Especially after you put the arrowroot in)

Sorry I copied the recipe from my email when I sent it to my husband so its got more notes that I don't care to take out. (For the record you do not have to use soy milk, I personally prefer rice milk, but I had just a little bit left in the carton so I said use that too. Sorry I don't have exact measurements... I rarely do)

Hormel flavored pork loin with oven roasted potatoes and broccoli was last night's dinner. Tonight I am being lazy and having frozen gluten-free pizza.

The Betty Crocker liveglutenfreely website is a great resource for recipes. I have used a number of them with great success.

I had a big bowl of leftover cranberry salad and a prepared falafel wrap from the grocery store. The wrap wasn't gluten-free but I don't need gluten-free. The store does make prepared falafel patties and I do get those sometimes. They are gluten-free. I also get some lettuce and tomato slices from their prepared food bar. We make sandwiches out of them. I put a patty between two tomato slices and daughter uses the lettuce on the outside because she dislikes tomato.

Daughter had some things from the salad bar and again a toasted cheese sandwich.

Tomorrow night? Have to take daughter to the dance studio for a private lesson. Have to leave early and pack her a dinner. I will come home to eat. For her I will chop up a prepared Hormel chicken breast in gravy, make some instant mashed potatoes and also send in some baby carrots and apple slices if I still have some. If I don't, then some applesauce.

Not sure what I will have. I have a can of chili, some frozen hamburger patties, Ian's chicken nuggets, refried beans and corn tortillas. Also have some shredded lettuce and of course the baby carrots. Will be one something from that list.

I got called in to work a temp job today so it will be a super easy "hamburger goulash". I chopped an onion, put it in the crock pot with a pound of ground beef and a can of Progresso cream of mushroom soup and some additonal mushrooms. I will serve with Sam's Mill corn bow ties or microwaved baked potatoes and a yet to be named green vegetable. Have not decided yet........

Oven roasted pot roast with carrots, onions, potatoes. I put lipton onion soup in the water, and made gravy with potato starch. I made a brussel sprouts casserole with dried cranberries and almond slivers.

Be careful with the Lipton's onion soup. They have changed the recipe and the last box I looked at had barley.

Tonight it's chili in the crock pot: hamburger, onions, green pepper, kidney beans, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper. I'll add some cheese on top.

Green salad with homemade salad dressing: lemon juice, shallots, mint, mustard, salt, olive oil.

That's me on my gluten free/specific carb diet. 6 months on the SCD diet, 6 to go! I can't wait to have chocolate. Whoever posted the brownie in a mug recipe... omg, I hate you. :-) But I copied it into a document so I can make it on May 23, 2011.

Homemade veggie-beef soup pulled from my stash in the freezer. I also made banana bread and have already eaten 3 slices. Argh! ph34r.gif I had planned to have that later tonight. Guess "later" will be a couple of clementines.

I have a question. I have some leftover pot roast, a box of opened beef stock I don't think I'll use within a week, and some leftover tinkyada noodles. Can I made a soup out of this stuff? Or should I freeze it?

Yes or Yes.

One thing I like to do with left over stock is freeze it in measured amounts that you use for a recipe. If you make something that calls for 1/4 cup, freeze it in 1/4 cup sizes.

Leftover pot roast makes the best soup! I would also add some veggies such as onions carrots and celery at a minimum. Maybe also green beans, corn and peas. Heat it through and then add the noodles since they are already cooked.

I have a beef chuck roast in my freezer and plan to use part of it for veggie-beef soup. It makes great soup! I'll have some of it as a roast (browned and then put in my crockpot) and then use a portion of the meat for soup by adding celery, onion, tomatoes and a bag of mixed frozen veggies. If need be, I'll add a box of Progresso beef broth. Most anything goes. I live alone so no way could I just eat it as a roast. Last time I made soup like this I used a package of beef stew meat. Couldn't live with my crockpots!

In years past I used to make beef stroganoff out of leftover roast and serve it over rice or noodles (avoiding dairy right now so that's out).

Hmm I'll have to try those soup suggestions. Thanks guys :)

Tonight I am using my crockpot again, I love that thing! I'm cooking a whole chicken in there (though I bought it already in pieces). I'm following this recipe http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/baked-slow-cooker-chicken/Detail.aspx but I added in some potatos and carrots at the bottom.. just realized now I forgot onions, oops.. then I added butter to the top, freshly squeezed juice of an orange and I also tossed in what was left of the orange itself, a drizzle of honey, extra paprika. I have no idea if it will taste good or not.

    • 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?
    • Sigh. I totally do love the packs of stretch pants at Costco though...
    • hey, i'm vegetarian and gluten free as well
      have you tried making any recipes with cashew nuts like cashew cheese or pasta sauce? they're really good, easy to make and an excellent way to get more protein/iron
      i can send you some of the easy recipes if you like  
    • Right, fistulas or fissures are usually associated with Crohns, but not celiac.  It is not impossible to have both conditions though.
    • Bravo for being strong enough to bring this topic up.  Depression, anxiety, and other mental or neurological issues are common in celiacs and those with NCGI.  Science is finally catching up to what many of us have already known to be true.   http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3641836/ I have suffered from anxiety and still have some neuropathies.  At first I blamed menopause (that alone can make you crazy), but my symptoms tend kick in after a Gluten exposure and improve as I heal.   You are not crazy!  Gluten can cause so many problems.  What other disease requires that the patient be in charge of "medicating" and caring for themselves?  Most of us after a diagnosis get a "Well, just avoid gluten.  Lucky you that there are so many restaurants that offer a gluten free menu!", speech from our doctors.  We never get time off from thinking about food, our next meal and will it be safe?  Our relationship with food changes dramatically and it can be exhausting.   We do need more resources and support from medical, but for now, at least this forum is helpful!
