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.

    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
    • I checked the Gluten Free Watchdog (I subscribe) and did not find this  particular product, but found the company's oat bran flakes which did not list any gluten ingrediants, but barley was found in testing well over 20 parts per million.  I would stick with certified gluten-free cereals, personally.  I think it is "hit or miss" on grain products.    
    • It is normal for other intolerances to become apparent once you remove gluten. I don't know why, perhaps as the immune system is free'd from chasing gluten it finds new targets? A lot of coeliacs find they have to cut out dairy as well for example. It's certainly my number one culprit for skin issues.  It also can take time for removing gluten to have its full effect, as antibodies will remain in the body for up to 6 months. So the reaction could still be to gluten in a way. 
    • I did not re-test my antibodies for a full year after diagnosis but I think your daughter should be checked again in 6 months.  If she does have celiac, and I really am sure she does regardless of what this doc seems to think, they should decrease in 6 months.  If she is fast healer, they could potentially be in the normal range but it varies from person to person. She did show damage in her small intestine but at 4 years of age, damage would not have progressed to the point where this doctor could be convinced it is Celiac.  They set the bar way too high. Kind of silly to require you to damage her insides further to prove it to the AMA. I think she should go gluten-free, as you have stated, and re-scope her in 6 months to see how the original damage looks then. If it is gone, then maybe that would convince them. The 4 out 5 criteria is not done in kids because, I am convinced, of liability issues. They just do not want to get sued if by some small chance, they diagnosed someone who did not have Celiac.  I think the odds of that are pretty slim, when you think about it. Even with a misdiagnosis, eating gluten free will never harm anyone. But as children are minors and cannot legally make medical decisions on their own like adults can, that rule is out for them.
