The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat
3 3

9,867 posts in this topic

Tonight I am finishing off last night's pizza. My husband won't touch my pizza. He doesn't like chunky sauce, at all, or vegetables on pizza. So the homemade, thick, chunky tomato sauce with roasted tomatoes and peppers, and the roasted mushrooms and onions made sure that he was keeping his grubby mitts off my pizza. He can eat his poison pizza. I'll finish off my night tonight with yogurt and honeydew.

 

I'm doing more or less okay with solid foods now as long as I am taking pain meds. At least I'm not needing them all the time any more, and not for soft foods either. Still feel like I got sucker punched. I'm going to try to stick to soft foods mostly as much as I can, but I was just SO HUNGRY!

Forgot to defrost meat before I left the house today -- sooooo -- breakfast for dinner -- waffles, bacon, eggs, etc for the men and I'll punt.

 

Oh I did make lemon "brownies" -- now I know these as lemon bars -- but saw a new recipe in the funny pages that called them lemon brownies -- so it caught my eye...they look and smell yummy -- just made lemon glaze to throw on top...happy happy men tonight :)

Hey all,

I was just diagnosed with celiac disease and I am on a fairly tight budget but I need ideas for lunches.  Also if you all can give me lunch ideas for school and work too, I don't really know what will work for reheating.  I also am getting tired of sandwiches but if you all can give me more ideas that would be great.

Thanks

Ryann

Welcome Ryan!!!  Take a read through this thread -- and the "what's for Breakfast" and "what's for Lunch" threads -- oodles of great ideas within these pages.

 

Also, make sure you read the "Newbie 101" thread -- it gives a huge "fast-forward" on making the transition to gluten-free!

 

Hang in there and come on back and let us know what you had for dinner :)

Do you have a fridge or microwave where you eat lunch?

My husband whined about it a little, but meatloaf tonight. I'm making two small ones, one for tonight and one for next week so I can get a night off the hook. I think we'll just have baked potatoes with green onions and I may make myself some fried green beans.

Hmmm 8.30pm and still not sure what is for dinner. Fed kids earlier, but lost my enthusiasm for cooking this week.

Happy otherwise though :)

Sounds de-lish to me!  ;) I'm so beat after 3 days of hauling stuff out of the house and cleaning a very full basement and garage and I can barely work up the enthusiasm for dinner....I'm pooped!....... but very happy at what we have accomplished. 

 

Just try and envision me carrying a set of 20 lbs. weights up a flight of stairs and hurling them into a dumpster.

yeah,baby,I  did it!

Piazza sounds great - men off to a very special Padre game with a dear friend of ours and 30 others to surprise this friend with pancreatic cancer - its pancrratic cancer night at the park - the whole group gets to meet and great after the game - a very special night for all the dads and their sons.

For me a girlie night ahead - cousin and her daughter are here so we will watch chick flicks and finish all the cakes I am baking for my baby's 18th birthday party manana -- I think I'll make them a piazza too - maybe that will bring my Sissy over to join in the girlie night :)

My husband is working an evening tonight, which is rare for him, so we are having an early dinner. I threw a couple potatoes in the oven a while ago and we'll grill some chicken breasts when he gets up from his nap soon. I'm sure I can find some other vegetable for me to eat too. I may just wait until later and have an evening snack of roasted brocciflower. I'm the kind of weirdo who could eat an entire head of the stuff. I'd eat it raw if I could, but I'm still far too sensitive for crunchy foods. Maybe if I feel ambitious later I'll make some apple muffins.

That should do it! :D

 

 

 

You are the only one among us who could use "unctuous" in a sentence and not sound like a pompous asshat (and get heckled by the troops).

It's just "you"--whom we love and dearly hope gets out of that snow-filled hell as soon as possible. Get thee to the sun, woman! B)  :)

Some things we have had for dinner this past week:

- Pasta (Newmans marinara) with turkey Italian sausage and moz & parm melted on top

- chicken "pot pie" with Bisquick biscuits on top

- beef stew made in the crockpot

- burgers, Ore Ida oven fries and salad

- chicken strips - grilled with Franks Wing sauce, a " coleslaw" with an orangey dressing I made, Schaar baguette - sliced, dipped in basil olive oil, sprinkled with garlic powder, salt and some asiago/ parm mix the broiled for a couple of minutes.

Coleslaw dressing : 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt, 1 orange - zest and juice, 4-5 tablespoons olive oil, a little balsamic vinegar to taste ( I used a jalapeño BV but it didn't seem spicy). If you want it spicy, you could add a little Chipotle, cayenne or chili powder.

YUM--all good stuff, K- (drooling)

 

Going with a  beef filet tonight on the grill, some baby potatoes and asparagus.

 

Like Love2Travel, we're forcing Spring. (although we have been known to grill out in the snow)

    • 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!
