oops forgot to mention dinner...

 

Tri Tip on the Q

Zu noodles for me - angel hair with lots of garlic and butter for the men

Broccoli

 

They are still working on minty fudge cake for dessert -- I am having a few M&Ms -- small amounts of soy seem to be ok -- I am whispering that because last time I bragged about my red lentil experiment I got schooled the next day ;)

Pictures and recipes are not required...although quite beautiful...many of us do enjoy the chat part of this thread -- occasional pics are fun but not necessary.

I realized while I was on my way to the eye doctor that I forgot to get dinner out of the freezer. So, Costco chicken since we were going there anyway, with roasted taters and bread. OMG the most amazing bread. If you saw someone squealing like a little girl in your local Costco this evening over gluten free bread, that was me.

hey...what was that i heard?  high pitched squealing :D

 

nothing deserves a squeal as much as great gluten-free bread.

For some reason i cannot do those chickens (i've only had Sams clubs ones, labeled gluten-free). They give me the worst bellyaches. :(

I do not take those chickens at all for granted. I count my lucky stars every time I have one. I just sort of panicked when I realized that my planned dinner was still in the freezer. I guess I know what I'll have tomorrow at least. :D

Glad you had an easy dinner Addie.

 

I can't do those chickens YET -- my celi kids can -- Grandparents buy them and throw them towards my door knowing it is easy food for the teens regularly grazing at my home - and I am grateful every time.

Bahahaha!! This just makes me envision some cartoony old people throwing a chicken at a door to a house and just as it falls onto the front step the door opens and then a host of hungry children fall up on the chicken like ravenous wolves. Pretty much sums up feeding hungry teens.

Sadly not far off.  I always point out when we are watching zombie shows....how similar zombies are to hungry young men....they will even push their girls aside for food!

 

ps...then apologize to said girls when mom slaps them upside the head - lovingly ;)

Why is it the simplest soups taste the best? Salt, pepper, beef, olive oil (for cooking beef), and some carrots.

The squeal heard as far away as Florida! yaay!! .  :lol:  I missed something, I'm sure--- but what bread was it that made you so excited?

Costco chicken is safe, then.... good to know.

 

Last night, we had amazingly succulent stone crab claws, roasted asparagus and the last encore piece of flourless chocolate cake. I let the big guy have most of it (the night before, I was awake for 3 hours in the middle of the night from those pesky high histamines. ack!)

 

So, gang---I met another GFreer at the local cafe and we invited her to eat lunch with us. She had never met a fellow celiac. (makes us sound like a rare exotic species, doesn't it?) :lol: We could have talked all afternoon, but suffice to say, she was happy to chat with someone who "gets it". She had nasty muscle pain so bad, she was bed ridden. Figured it out and is better after 3 years. Another warrior princess. I suggested she hop on the c.com boat.  

 

Headed for the beach, but I send my profound sympathies to those getting snow today. I dread returning north in two weeks blech and. ugh!

 

HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SPRING, EVERYONE!! xx

I found bread from The Essential Baking Company. Never heard of them before. I posted some nonsense about it over in the products section. I don't know if anyone remembers that kind of whole wheat bread that was full of like sunflower seeds and other seeds and oats and all that? Well, this is kinda like that but minus the oats. It is full of all sorts of seeds and stuff but still soft and fluffy. You can actually put your hand on top of the whole loaf and squish it down a little. :o Oh, and you buy it shelf stable for something like 4 months (mine is good til July) and no preservatives. Best part? We paid $8 for TWO LOAVES!!! I'm still walkin on sunshine.

 

Still sounds like Florida is agreeing with you. Hopefully we'll have a new friend here soon.

 

Mac and cheese sounds perfect, I may have to make some. Our plan is for chicken cheddar bacon ranch salads. But I suppose that mac and cheese could go with that right?

:lol: I've never tried that combo before (steak and M&C). Generally when i do a Steak its normally just said steak with a veggie.

Remove the ranch from that salad and i'd eat it.

 

Mac and cheese would go nicely with that.

I think by now, we all know this....bacon goes with everything!!

 

ADDY

The warm sunshine, ocean air and seeing my best friend does indeed agree with me....more than I can adequately say.

 

The constant muscle/joint/bone pain level I deal with daily? Well, it went from an "ok, I'm smiling through the pain because no one likes a whiner level" 7 to a" holy crap, this doesn't make me wanna rip my own legs and arms off" level  4. :lol:  Sun? Vit D? Not freezing cold and gray in the great northeast for months? Not sitting at the laptop hunched over for 5 hours a day? maybe a combo factor? who knows?

 

I'LL TAKE IT......  and we looked at new construction today.....

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
