I have been tempted over and over to make a meatza. My husband and I are both carnivores and I think we would enjoy it.

Foil wrapped chicken with fennel, red bell peppers.

 

Won't be home in time to cook tonight, so I guess wifey will get take out and I'll get a call at 6:30 to pick it up on my way home.

I'd do meatza -- lol -- mine would be almost all meat - no cheese, but would top with vegies and....more meat ;)

Burgers and microwave baked taters tonight. I had a side of sliced tomato. I just can't have a good day lately, I'm not sure what is up but I feel like I had a truck ram into my left side about a million times. If I do more than some light cooking and cleaning up after myself and some moseying around the house here and there I end up unable to walk again. Blargh, this has to let up soon I'm thinking. Tomorrow I'll find the energy for mac & cheese, I have my first dentist appointment for bridge work. :ph34r:

oh goodie, dental work is always such a  joy. I spent 2 years and about $ 12K correcting what celiac had done to my once beautiful teeth.

 

grumble grumble (I am having a grumble day today, don't mind me.....just walking through the kitchen in my jammies here.....any ice cream around??? hand me that spoon, Addy. Thank yew.)

 

Meatza sounds good to me. I'd be a good cave woman, methinks.

 

Grok's woman make meatza!!

Mushroom Risotto (dried chanterelles, porcini, wood mushrooms that were reconstituted with Sherry) with mushroom powder (I also pulverized dried porcinis in my spice grinder to make it extra mushroom-y) PLUS used mushroom stock

Juniper, Bay and Vanilla Poached Shrimp over Beet Coulis (with lemon juice, horseradish, etc.), scattered with baby arugula and sprinkled with toasted pine nuts

Steamed broccoli

 

That's about it.  ^_^

And after a few thousand miles you will be able to ditch the wheels and the cooler/chillie bin/Eski (that's Yankee, Kiwi and Aussie multilinguality for you :ph34r: )

You can chase her into that frozen tundra. Me? I'll stay put where we have more than one season and enjoy my never ending mac & cheese.

 

As for my dental work.... ugh. I do have a good plan though that I got hooked up with while I worked as a tax preparer a few seasons ago. No pre-authorizations. No crap. The dentist bills, they pay. With my limit, plus what we can afford out of pocket every year, plus an additional amount my health insurance covers, I think I hit about $4K last year. I'll probably hit about $10K before I am done, not counting the insurance premiums (just the dental) which will bump us up around the $13-14 mark. Why aren't dentists educated about celiac?!? Anyone could have looked in my mouth and said "DAMN!! You have a serious medical issue."

 

You are more than welcome to some of my chocolate ice cream. There is nothing in the world like getting into ice cream in the dark in jammies. It feels so bad, and so good. :D

I'm up for Meatza :)

 

We were discussing this at home only yesterday. We were thinking what the best bases for pizza are, tortilla, french bread, and we remebered the time that we had decided to have pizza without checking what was in the house, and ended up using large lamb steaks as the base.

 

Definitely some caveman stuff going on here.

 

At least you guys aren't in the UK. We have reduced price dental care, but our teeth are awful!!

The American comedians often rag on the state of teeth in the UK, which I find unfunny.  

Do you think perhaps there is more widespread unDXed coeliac (see what I did there :)   ) by any chance? I mean, why would one population have such a hard time with their teeth? I'm just speculating here.

 

Interestingly enough, I read THIS article about celiac disease's toll on our teeth just yesterday.

 

http://allergicliving.com/index.php/2013/03/13/celiac-diseases-toll-on-your-teeth/

 

 

You know me, I like to read the current research. Do we think this is something perhaps the PEOPLE IN THE MEDICAL PROFESSION SHOULD BE DOING?? ARGH.  

Ok, calm down....it's waaaay too early to be shouting. Knock that off!!!!.....Breathe in/ breathe out/namaste.

 

ADDY

thanks for the offer of chocolate ice cream, but I CAN'T HAVE CHOCOLATE because of this stupid histamine intolerance that has occured because of my damaged celiac gut. ARGH

 

ohmygosh, I'm SHOUTING again. What is wrong with me? 

 

I think the past few days have spurred some ANGER inside me, so I think I'm just going to go to the gym and grunt on the treadmill and weight machines. Then, I'm off to the PT and the MT. My body should be very pleased with me by 5 PM :D

 

Dinner tonight will be whatever my friend Sherry Lynn has for soup special at her G F cafe. Mama don't cook on gym and PT day.

 

YO LOVE2  !!  

the daffodils are opening, hon! whoohooooo!! and you are the only one in this chat gang who can say "scattered with baby arugula and sprinkled with toasted pine nuts" and get away with it without sounding like a pretentious asshat.

 

You're so adorable and I hope that snow skeedaddles soon.. 

 

HAVE A GOOD DAY, EVERYONE!!!! (omygawd, you're doing it again.....no I'm not, those caps were for emphasis and enthusiasm, not shouting. Well, some might interpret it that way...geesh!.....)  and that's what it sounds like inside my head.

OK, not got quoting yet, but working on it...

 

Unfunny maybe, but true!!

I think it is a money thing - for example I had braces on my teeth as a teenager, but they only did the top ones, and my bottom teeth are very crooked and cramped - from what I gather, the policy was only to do top teeth, mostly because of cost. You get what you pay for. We get dental work on the NHS (if you can find a dentist to do it...) and get charged in different bands, according to how much work we get done. Since this approach came in, I have noticed a lot less dental work being done than when we paid for each thing individually. Well, that's my theory anyway.

 

And I think because we all (well, lots) have bad teeth, we thnk it is normal. I am jealous of my American friends shiny straight teeth.

 

And CHILL IF YOU CAN :ph34r:

I would be shouting too if I couldn't have chocolate. Or possibly crying in the car on the way home from the neurologist. I think that afternoon was worse than the celiac thing, because it was just more crap piled on, I am so glad that chocolate doesn't bother me or I'd possibly be in the loony bin by now.

Tonight is double meat lasagna, salad and french bread. Possibly followed by Luigi's Italian ice.

I survived the dentist intact. I swear if it weren't for the gas I would probably have a panic attack when he sticks that needle in me. I don't know why they bother with that stupid crap on a stick to make it hurt less, doesn't do a thing to stop it from hurting so bad I could punch him in the face and not feel bad. Or maybe that is the gas talking. :lol:

 

I made my mac & cheese. I have some anaheim (I think? I don't know, they're green and long) peppers laying around so I cut one up and fried it up a little and added it. Now it is mildly spicy mac & cheese!

I don't even try to compete! :). I feel some of us should represent the " real" people! So:

chili in the crockpot &/ chili Mac with corn pasta for those who like chili that way. This time it's lean hamburger with black beans & pinto beans.

I miss chili so much! That sounds amazing. I really hope to be able to have beans again eventually, I find that to be one of the most limiting things of my diet.

Great long-long day...wanted a few extra credit points to lock my grade so saw a film about water management -- cars were shuffled a bit incorrectly today so I walked home -- thankful I could at 530 in the evening, but asses were chewed a bit for no one fetching me before the second major hill between - here and there.  

 

Needless to say...didn't feel like cooking -- did throw the leftover pork from enchilada day in a pot with left over chicken breasts...hubby took over and made tacos for men and a big pot of asparagus for me.

 

They are still working on pineapple upside down a la mode and I am ready for bed.  Nightie-night all :)

Speakin of Pizza bases, have any of you tried cauliflower? I discovered it when I went on a low carb diet... it's riced cauliflower, egg and mozzarella cheese rolled into a ball first and then pressed flat and baked until crispy. Pizza sauce and toppings are added in the last few minutes of cooking.

 

It tastes good, is healthy and actually looks quite like a real pizza. My 4 yr old was suspicious though when he pick up a slice and it gave a little. :-)

I've used cauliflower -- for pizza crust -- to add some substance to my paleo apple bread and to make "rice" and most often cauli-fried rice!!!

 

A few years ago I bough cauliflower once in a blue moon -- now there are a couple heads in my basket each week - great stuff - just not a fan of it plain.

I have a beautiferous hunk of cow at home in the crock pot. I am hoping he comes out tender and juicy so I can eat him, as my mouth is so messed up that I may end up on a liquid or super soft foods diet for a few weeks. Flaming pissed doesn't begin to describe how I feel about my results from yesterday's appointment. When none of the pain was resolving by bedtime, and some was getting worse, I decided to actually look in my mouth. I have over half a dozen canker sores and a gorgeous 1/4 inch bruise from the abuse of the dentist yesterday.

 

I am really hoping to retain more in my diet than smoothies, ice cream and mac & cheese for the next two weeks.Lets face it though, this is me we are talking about. Other than whining about wanting meat, no one will hear me complain about too much mac & cheese until I stop pooping. :lol:

Hubs made his Famous Cheeseburgers In Paradise for din din. 

 

They are famous because he is the official Grill Master at the family's annual 4th of July Party-Rama.  Dad was forced to give up the title when a burger flip went wrong, flames licking up the side of the guest house and water hoses were involved.  Needless to say, Dad is not allowed around the grill and not allowed to touch the smuggled in fireworks. 

 

They are in Paradise because me and hubs always eat them together :)

  :wub:  aw, I feel the same way when my baby  makes burgers on da grill .

 

We had beans and greens soup and veggie rolls ups for dinner tonight and I am coming out of my sad coma.

I do not want to get into a "political" discussion at all, so please, no one start with me...but the President did a wonderful job today in Boston.

I am grateful.

Boston Strong.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
