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.....

    • Wass not having any idea about Paleo diet. Thanks for sharing this information.
    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
