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

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,

http://palmettofarms.com/

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!

    • Your body has been used to ingesting and has been coping with the gluten in its systems.  DON'T PANIC because your body is doing it for you.   Seriously now, the medical field has a technological term defining when a system is used to working a certain way/routine.  When that is either disrupted or changed, it could take a while for the body adjust to a different way of doing things.  Another factor in the increase in symptoms could possibly be that your body is starting to "clean house".  It's trying to get rid of the amounts of gluten hiding out in all its nooks and crannies.  It is going to be a long term process.  It's like cleaning out a vacuum hose or other household item that is just caked with gunk.  The first cleaning gets rid of a large portion of the gunk and ick.  The subsequent cleanings gets rid of more and more ick but in lesser amounts. I thought I was going to go crazy those first few months, but things are a lot better now. (I am about 10 months gluten free).  I still have moments of brain fog and even episodes, but my body is getting closer (and more used to)  to having a cleaner "household item".  I know it's tough at first with the increased onslaught of symptoms, but hang in there.   You may want to keep a journal of all that you ingest or come into contact with for a time to track anything that could exacerbate symptoms.  (For me, my episodes are chemically triggered as well.)  If for some reason a few months down the road, you still have large amounts of symptoms it would be a good idea to visit your GP again just in case there something else that is going on.  
    • I would love some help! After 20ish years of being misdiagnosed with IBS, I was diagnosed with celiac disease (positive blood test for tTG IgA and positive duodenal biopsy) ~ 6 weeks ago. Of course I've gone completely gluten free, and I've been crazy paranoid careful not to ingest any gluten. I've also completely avoided all oats (even certified gluten free) and cut out lactose (due to transient lactose intolerance... because I don't have villi) . But now I feel WAY WORSE. I've had abdominal pain every single day, which ranges from mild aching to severe 10/10 laying on the floor crying and vomiting pain. I understand that it takes a long time to get better, but why would I get so much worse? My best guess is SIBO, but I can't imagine that it could cause such extreme symptoms, can it?  So my question to you fine folks is: did this happen to anyone else? Have you gotten sicker after you changed your diet? Is this normal?  For arguments sake, lets assume that I did not ingest any gluten to cause these symptoms... Thank you for your help!
    • Thanks very much Cyclinglady. Yes, it is Kaiser. I doctor said the GI think it is unlikely to be celiac deisease (he did not say how he came to this conclusion), but he would be happy to do an upper endoscopy for me. I did some look up online, this procedure should be low risk. Still feel a little hesitate while reading the potential risks :(.
    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Sorry.  Something is wonky with either my connection or celiac.com! Your results are not specific...borderline.    That is why your PCP should refer you to a GI for further celiac blood tests and a possible endoscopy.  I recognize the lab report form.  Kaiser?  If so, a PCP can not order a full celiac panel.  Only a GI can do so.  Why bother?  Because if you test like me, the TTG tests are always negative.  Request the EMA and the DGPS test via a GI.   Do not be fooled by a lack of abdominal symptoms.  I was only anemic -- no abdominal issues at all.  Constipation is a symptom.  Your PCP is thinking is just historical Classic celiac disease symptoms.   Please email your doctor for the referral if you think you might have celiac disease and want a solid answer.
