Ran outta steam from a good day hiking. Pizza delayed until tomorrow.

Hubby chopping and dicing away while I enjoy my glass of zin and catch up with the news of the day.

He has his choice of shrimp, ground beef or ny steaks...hmmm I wonder which he will choose?

Steak with something yummy ahead :D

I've used regular white rice flour in similar circumstance -- worked fine.

If you have an Oriental grocery in your area, they'll carry sweet rice.

We had grilled salmon tonight with chopped rosemary/mustard/brown sugar basting, & mashed parmesan potatoes with a salad. We're always a day late, last night's dinner was pretty awful.

After grocery shopping the homemade mac and cheese turned into mac and cheese from a box. :( At least I have daffodil cake with lemon curd with which to drown my sorrows.

I found some sweet rice flour. I was trying to avoid going to the Asian store as it was out of the way.

Last night we had chicken tacos. I used iceberg lettuce for my shell. Tonight we are having some experimental appetizers. I am having people over next Friday and haven't decided what to make yet.

A little late for Valentines Day but I just saw this:

Aren't you old enough to have learned not to do this sort of thing? You just.... don't say things like this, it is practically like hexing yourself.

Eat this and feel better. sendchickensoupplz.gif?1

Tonight is easy dinner for me to make but sooooo good. Ham and eggs, and if I'm feeling spunky maybe even some pancakes. Or a German pancake, but that seems silly with eggs. Maybe arepas since they taste so similar to English muffins. But like I said, a bread-like object depends on how spunky I feel later.

Oh, I so wish I could come and take care of you. I'll bet your sweetheart is spoiling you to bits. Please get better soon. And keep those lungs firmly ensconced where they should be! ^_^

Well, he was until he got it ,too. :unsure: Nothing says true love like two people simultaneously hacking themselves silly all night long

I wish you could come too, hon... but I'd rather you came when I am well so we can play together in the kitchen!!.

Okay, well, I managed to work up the "oomph" to throw in a roasted chicken. It got a quickie butter, thyme, lemon, garlic treatment of some sort.

and maybe some potatoes and carrots. That took all the energy I had stored up.

whew. I'm toast.

Honestly, guys.........I'd rather be glutened than be "sick". This "regular people sick" thing sucks.

Thanks for asking, sweetie. Yes, a little bit ! Hubs --er, not so much. Poor guy.

I was just about to start throwing together a chicken noodle soup.

We do not really have appetites. :unsure:

I do not feel so wiped out today, so that must be a good sign!

So a while ago Addy posted about making cheese bread without buying a mix, using

the recipe from the following link

 

http://www.ourbestbites.com/2011/02/quick-brazilian-cheese-rolls-pao-de-queijo-2/

 

 

Well, it's awesome. Piece of advice? Don't accidentally double the amount of oil called

for in the recipe......

Thanks for that link, JN.  I missed the gluten-free Expo here because I am recovering from cellultis.

 

We had grilled pork tenderloin, steamed pea pods, roasted potatoes and homemade applesauce.  (An apple a day...wishing...)

So - it is cold many places - flu bugs flying willy nilly and a good cheesebread recipe - hold the double oil!

Road trip needed! Life has gotten in the way of me snapping pics of candidates but I have spied them everywhere I walk and run! Yes these joints haven't handled the impact of running in over 20 years!

Dinner was almonds and dried pears in the movie theater - two men picked up mex on the way home - other had safe encores.

IH - hang in there and dream of the vacation ahead - hmmm - where is that countdown?

Glad you liked them! I tried them tonight with a little butter added and they didn't rise as well but the flavor was awesome with the garlic and basil. Great replacement for garlic bread.

We had fish, fries, hush puppies and slaw. OH MY GOSH was it good, I was in HEAVEN! We ordered the hush puppy mix from from a Grist mill from back home and it makes the BEST hush puppies we've ever had! I just recently realized we could order it online. We did add finely chop onion to the batter. HAVE MERCY. They were VERY light and fluffy and naturally gluten free because they don't process any wheat in there! We also ordered grits, cornbread mix and rice. It is the best we've ever had. I would share a photo but it won't let me post it unless I have an URL.

In case anyone is interested,

we are having exactly that tonight, except no hushpuppies :(  but i have sweet onions to make onion rings :)

 

i got glutened by a cupcake for my birthday - haven't got the heart to tell my daughter that the award-winning gluten-free cupcake must have only won because it must have been judged on 'flavor' and not for being celiac friendly  :(  annnnnnd i spent 3 days blaming everything else i ate/stress/blah blah blah on what is UNMISTAKABLY gluten - nothing wipes me out like that - after 2 plus years, i still second guess.......  a harsh reminder!  so, went into "safe mode" and finally got 'reset'  

 

hey - everybody is eating strawberries!  so, they are ok??  i thought they packed them in wheat straw ?/  is there a way to tell ugh i sure miss my strawberries

You can eat strawberries. I saw them growing in California. They don't use straw. They use plastic. Even if they used straw it probably wouldn't be from wheat as they would have to haul it in from a long distance if it were wheat. Not very cost effective.

Dinner tonight was pork chops, carrots boiled in chicken broth, baked beans, rice & gravy. Yum! Everyone ate the gluten-free gravy with no complaints! Love having my whole family gluten-free so my daughter doesn't have to worry about what to eat at home. She gets enough to worry about everywhere else!

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
