Last night I made a meal direct from my childhood. I made salmon patties: 2 large cans pink salmon mashed with 3 eggs, 1/4 cup corn meal, salt, pepper and a sprinkle of onion powder. Used butter flavored spray and a bit of my dairy free margarine - Smart Balance and fried until brown and crispy on both sides. Served with some canned creamed corn. Yummo!

OMG, this sounds good. I can so relate to this meal from my childhood, too. I've been eyeing the can of salmon I have and wondered what to use for the "filler" part. I used to use saltines :ph34r: and figured I'd probably have to get some bread out of my freezer to use for crumbs or possibly use Rice Chex. Never would have thought of using corn meal.

I just made another huge batch of salmon patties using my recipe above. I am going in for surgery on Wednesday (total knee replacement) and I have been making food for DH to bring to the hospital. They will not provide gluten or dairy free items. My patties are individually wrapped right next to my frozen Katz and Udi bread. All he has to do is grab a couple and some bread and I can eat. Today I also cooked some haddock fillets that were in the freezer and cut them up and froze them.

This time I cooked the patties on an electric grill rather than a large frying pan. They came out smoother and more even and I used less dairy free margarine. Did you know that the little crispy bits around each patty are just delicious enough to munch on during the cooking time?

My friend told me she makes her salmon patties with mashed potato... That might be good too although I do love the corn meal in this recipe and it is so safe for me.

Actually I used bread crumbs (from a loaf that bombed...lol). I was going to try your corn meal and will do so in the future. Leftover mashed potato sounds good, too (wonder if you could just use instant)?

Be careful with the Lipton's onion soup. They have changed the recipe and the last box I looked at had barley.

...yes, the barley will get you if the msg doesn't :)

We had cheeseless gluten-free pizza with Muir Glen pizza sauce and heavy turkey pepperoni. Turned out great! I recently tried the vegan cheese at Zpizza to see if I liked it and the taste made me ill--No offense to anyone that loves it but I had to scape all the fake cheese off and eat the gluten-free crust. Even then I was burping up the taste of the vegan cheese all night long. So that's when I decided to just do cheeseless pizza at home (my homemade gluten-free crust is better than Zpizza's anyway) and just make a good crust and go heavy on the toppings. The turkey pepperoni crisps up nicely just like cheese would and I harldy missed the cheese at all.

Had my favorite "go to" fish meal when I am hurting. Easy MW Lemon Fish. 1 1/2 lb. fish fillets (I defrosted 2 large pieces haddock, 1/2 cup dairy free margarine, 1 TBSP. cornstarch, 1 1/2 TBSP lemon juice. Melt the marg in a MW safe dish and mix in the cornstarch and lemon juice. Add the serving size fish pieces and flip flop them in the sauce and arrange them with the thickest portion towards the edge of the dish. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and cook 6 -8 minutes until fish is done and flakes. You can add some parsley and toasted almonds before cooking if you can eat them. This fish is soft and tender and very moist and the sauce is delicious spooned over cooked rice.

I was just going to say "Bread" - specifically freshly-baked Multigrain Sandwich Bread (Annalise Roberts' recipe) . But then I decided I had better turn it into a ham sandwich and chips since it's getting late to eat here.

    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.
