I poked around enough to find some burgers in the freezer to make tonight. I must have made an impression at some point on my husband because he texted me from work and asked if I could make butter and garlic roasted potatoes tonight. I know they're just lowly potatoes, but he asked for a vegetable! I also found a really simple roasted bok choy recipe I think I'll try. And I still have a few shrooms in the fridge so I think I may fry a few up for my burger.

 

I do have to be careful about cabbage already because of my stupid tyramine thing, so I am wary. I didn't react to small amounts of cabbage last I had it, but I am wary anyway since it is still technically a cabbage.

 

I discovered (or rather re-discovered) last night that paper has a certain temperature at which it catches fire. This is all very easily remembered through the title of a book which I love, Fahrenheit 451. Unfortunately for me and my fogginess, I decided to broil my mango on parchment paper for easy cleanup. Derp. Lets just call that oops. Hahaha! After about 2 minutes I was like omg is my mango burning already?!?! Nope, just the paper 2 seconds from catching fire. Brilliant move.

 

IH, it sounds like you are in food paradise and not just regular paradise! You know, if we all ignore the whole trying to get out of a wetsuit part. None of us envy that. :P

 

I wish I could grill. Sadly all efforts at sharing a grill have been for naught. I will have to find a way to get my own grill. That sounds yummy though!

This past week was a food festival. Still avoiding high histamine foods, except for that margarita I just downed, but managed to eat out at 3 highly recommended gluten-free places: Bonefish Grill in VA, FL and 2 places in the Keys. Marker 88 and Chef Michael's.

 

Grilled Chilean Sea Bass with mango salsa

Herbed jasmine rice, asparagus

 

(I had that twice, it's so good)

 

Lightly battered and sauteed Yellowfin Tuna (caught just hours before) with fruit and coconut salsa

Black beans and rice

 

Freshly- caught Hogfish with a nutty crust and tropical fruit salsa

Thai spiced green beans (K !!, they have them as "haricot verts" on the menu  :P )

 

Buckwheat pancakes and (I could not resist) thick slab BACON (1 piece) 

and a mimosa.... okay, this was really a brunch, but the chef was so sweet about making those pancakes, I had to tell you guys.

 

Lamb Shanks (the size of a dog's leg) done in red wine, & herbs and falling off the bone

Garlic smashed with roasted veggies 

 

2 creme brulees, a gluten-free key lime pie slice made by the famous Key Lime pie guy (Chef Kermit)  of Key West and a key lime Baked Alaska. Not my fav--not a meringue fan.

 

No dieting going on here, obviously,but I have walked a mile everyday and that  dolphin swim counts for some caloric burn.

 

Just squeezing into the wet suit (which I imagine feels like those Spanx things on steroids) used up some calories.

Holy mama--peeling it off was a whole 'nuther experience. :lol:

 

No more desserts for me. That was just a "special week".  

Went through the Everglades--beautiful and wild. 

 

Mindwarp--hope your son is a-okay, sweets!

 

I really started to drool bad over the Key Lime Baked Alaska.  I really like meringue. Never heard of it with key lime but that'll work. This was an "oinky" fest, Irish, to use another's words.  :lol:   Wish I could be there....we could have had an eating contest.

 

I'm off to have some gingerbread and whipped cream.  Not quite Baked Alaska but it'll do....... ;)

I've wondered about her too. I think maybe she hasn't had a chance to thaw out yet and is just a popsicle up there in the frozen tundra she calls home?

Hi all

My son is much improved, back to school today. Those steroids do the job. Still a bit nervous though, as his symptoms are so sublte, goes a bit pale and doesn't join in quite as much. No mighty wheeze, no cough. Called the Asthma Uk helpline, where they have excellent nurses, and a bit reassured.

 

It was mother's day in the UK yesterday, and I was suitably spoiled, roast chicken lunch with 4 small roast potatoes, and, gasp, a few blueberries for dessert.

 

IH your food adventure sounds fantastic, I look forward to eating out again in a few months once I have things under control. All that fish sounds amazing. And the sea is sooooo good for the soul (I still can't believe I live next to it now :).

 

Fingers crossed here for a less eventful week.

 

Oh, we do have a little snow falling this morning.....

I have a secret L2T Batman signal that I can light up. Instead of a giant bat, it's shaped like a chef's hat :lol:

 

 I'll give her a shout. She usually house sits (but she is not in Croatia this month, I do not believe.)

I worry about her when she is gone for a few weeks because I know that means her pain level is up, :(  that brave girl.

 

Back to earth yesterday, so to speak. We had burgers and corn. I know I told you all this last year, but there is the most amazing fruit and veggie stand a few blocks down and a morning's walk to pick up fresh produce is the best way to start the day. The sun is just coming up over the water right now. 

 

If this place is so amazing, why don't we live here you ask....yeah, we wonder that same thing, too. We are thinking maybe it may be time for

a change, 

 

Mindwarp, I agree with you-- being near the sea has always been my source of comfort. I love this quote: 

 
 

"The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears or the sea." - Isak Dinesen

 

In fact, for a while, it was on my sig line, Maybe I should put it back. 

:)

 

Good news,  gang! L2T is fine, she has just been busy playing with her new "boyfriend".......but I'll let her explain.

Here I am!  See my "Prodigal Daughter has Returned" post to see why I have been preoccupied!  A rescue PUPPY!  My routine has gone all to pieces as I have been bonding with our fluffy son.  Whenever I look at him my heart literally swells with joy and pride.  He just makes me smile!  :)   We named him Bingley which really fits as I LOVE English literature.  The name is from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.  Not my favourite book in the world but the name is unique just like our boy.  ^_^

 

Tonight we are having Jambalaya.  I made it yesterday so it is technically an encore meal but will do a lovely greens salad of some sort to go with it.  I used shrimp, chicken and andouille.  It is DELICIOUS.

Hmmm. Looks like that gluten-free soy sauce is a no. Not too bad, but not worth it.

Thinking something with turkey for dinner. Something plain :)

Good Morning All!

 

IrishHeart sent word via carrier pigeon that they are having major tech problems in Florida -- also mentioned I should send hugs from her to all of you until they can get something electronic up and running!

 

Have a great day :)

I inherited a new counter in the kitchen. Because it is below the dishes and such that aren't mine, and I am super paranoid, I felt like I needed covers for my appliances before they migrated over. I also wasn't about to spend $50+ on a toaster and mixer cover. Holy crap they're expensive! So, I made my own. This is the fruits of an afternoon of labor.

Super adorable! I'm not sure my MIL was thrilled when I told her they would be giraffe print, but because they are tan and brown they won't show stains much and it seemed practical. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

 

We're doing encore pork loin for dinner tonight. I think I'll do some roasted asparagus for me and roasted taters for him. I'm beat from hours of sewing and have a thing to go to tonight still.

They are fantastic Addy :)

Had chicken and rice, with zucchini and mushrooms.

Just spent an exciting evening building Ikea furniture. I'm on a sorting kick. Those years of brain fog did my organization and filing no favors, so I have a long way to catch up....

Dinner tonight is simple pork chops and homemade applesauce....maybe a vegie too.

 

BUT...I bought a huge beef brisket and have it happily soaking in brine to become corned beef -- why is it called corned beef when there is no corn in the process?  It gets to bathe until Sunday AM - then transfer to the crockpot with Green's Double Dark and a few spices --- I will have corned beef this year without getting bloated....I will have corned beef this year without getting bloated!!!

 

Oh and I am making some corned beef jerky for the son to take on his backpacking trip to Havasu Falls -- going to try to make teriyaki chicken jerky too and dehydrating blueberries and granny smiths -- wow...saving a ton on buying traditional backpack fare :D

Wish I could. After the afternoon spent sewing I realize that sewing is not a hobby to take lightly in my future. Really did me in!

 

That corned beef sounds good! I should have thought of getting one. I may take the easy way out and just pick one up at the store and throw it in the crock pot Sunday.

I usually opt for the easy ones...but last few years I couldn't eat the ones all ready to throw in the crock....if anyone is reading along -- I do not believe there was any gluten in the corned beefs I have purchased...I just reacted to some other item used to turn them into corned beef!

 

And I just read all the grocery store ads...I do miss thowing a few inexpensive corned beef roasts in the freeze during the super duper St. Patty's sales!

All I did was google how to make a KitchenAid mixer cover when I saw the price of the darn things. I had to borrow a sewing machine.

    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      I am also IgA deficient. My doc took more blood and looked at 2-3 other markers in the blood work , transglutinase, and 2 others. My biopsy showed blunted cilia in sm intestine, but my IgA was low. He suspected Celiac due to cilia so ordered other blood tests. I also presented atypically, burny stomach and reflux...and very little else.
    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      If you have Celiac Disease, and you are IgA deficient, what do they check on your labs to make sure you are not being "glutened"?
    • Weird Reaction
      Hi again Richie, A lot of coeliacs have a problem with coffee, maybe you do too. It could explain the shakes you describe. I am sensitive to coffee, and haven't touched caffeine since last summer. (The detox lasted for 10 days and it wasn't pleasant, so if you ever give it up, do it gradually).  Sometimes when you're intolerant to something, when you have it, it makes you feel 'better' but it doesn't last and usually end up worse, it's like a drug - and in the case of caffeine it is. I also take a daily probiotic (gluten free and dairy free etc)., which is good for healing the gut.
    • Weird Reaction
      Cristiana and Flowerqueen, I haven't been officially diagnosed as Celiac but I had a DNA test in March 2015 which revealed I had the Celiac gene on both sides so it was advised that I have a test to see if I did have it. I didn't but I went off gluten immediately and haven't "knowingly" eaten it since. Before the DNA test I didn't have the nausea and trembling type feelings that I do now but I occasionally got the shortness of breath which I used to put down to being a smoker. (I quit almost 16 years ago) Anyway, this morning I woke with the nausea feeling, the trembling, loss of appetite, feeling of doom again but it happens so intermittently. I do have some unavoidable stress in my life all of a sudden so maybe it's all connected some how. But on the plus side my bowel movements have returned to normal and I go often especially after waking and having coffee. (Oh, and Cristiana don't worry about tmi with me. You would have to try pretty hard to offend me and nobody has done it yet. haha) I always think the worse to. The internet and Google are great but information overload becomes a real possibility creating some frightening scenarios. It's just interesting that the coffee with the MCT Oil (Brain Octane is the actual name) and butter makes me start feeling better and the nausea, trembling, anxiety seem to be extinguished by it but coffee with low fat milk doesn't although I do get more energy from it. I did read somewhere that MCT Oil was good for gut health though and if I had to describe it it would be like it just smooths over all the bad stuff with a nice soft lining.  It was recommended in my DNA test that I have more fats in my diet and low processed foods but I occasionally have gluten-free biscuits, gluten-free ice-cream (my true weakness) and gluten-free weet-bix. I've checked most of these items ingredients and they are pretty good. There is a lot of gluten free rubbish out there though which I completely avoid. Thanks GFinDC for your reply. I was going to speak to my Naturopath when I see her about Immune Health. My plan usually involves the Liver Tonic I mentioned above and heavy on the L-Glutamine which, apparently, is supposed to be excellent for gastrointestinal health but I'm not going to supplement with anything just yet until I get my blood work done and see if it reveals any deficiencies. I'm suspecting Iron though. Because I've had recent tests all coming back good I'm thinking a possible scenario would be a die-off effect I've heard of where all the bad bacteria have been killed off but your body can't rid itself of them quick enough so you actually feel or get worse before you get better. That's where the detox strategy comes in and I'm assuming replacing them with Good Bacteria via Probiotics. Again, this is what I have read in the past but it does seem to make sense in some cases. I do feel better in having found these forums though.  
    • Daughter with celiac- need test result help
      You are doing well.  We didn't have a "normal" tTG for 6 years and were also very strict.  Kiddo was dx with hypothyroid as well and tTG fell a lot after getting on meds for that but still didn't normalize.  Finally cam down within the last 6 months (this after a trip to THE Celiac Dr. several years ago).  I wish we had done a DGP much earlier and I had pushed for that sooner.  I would start there and see what happens.     Sounds like you're doing everything right though. Sometimes it just takes time.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
