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!

...and here's my buddy, equally unenthusiastic about cooking tonight.... but still happy!  :)

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)

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
