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.

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
