The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

I spent most of my day at the library with Clifford, Curious George and listening to a band singing math songs to classic rock songs (ex. Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith was Calculators) and then we took the girls for ice cream (soft serve blueberry...yum!!!). Anyway that meant a quick dinner of hot dogs on Udis buns with roasted garlic and sea salt chips and coleslaw (cabbage, carrots and apple with a honey mustard vinegarette).

Alex, that sounds like a perfect day to me!!!

I'm an "old school". dinosaur.  I  still like "holding" books while I read them and I like libraries. too  and I hope they do not become extinct in our techno world.

 

Dinner tonight will be roast pork with onions and garlic and baked sweet potatoes and maybe baby peas.

 

Taking the day off from physical labor. I'm pooped. :wacko:

Good Morning All!

Wonderful day yesterday except I flipped a kayak so my mobile is resting in the oven with hydrogen peroxide on its little connections - likely dead but hought id give it until tomorrow to spring back.

Cakes were awesome - cake makes everybody happy :)

Ive got several slices of each left - stop on by for a piece along with a cup of Jo!

Celiac results in celibacy --

Libraries are awesome! Nothing can compare to the smell of one and while I have an ereader, which got me through some of the roughest times when I was so sick I could barely stand to hold even it, nothing can compare to an actual book. Of course, you can't get the classics for free on paper which was my primary reason for my ereader. I've read so many free books that I have far exceeded the cost of the thing, so although I rarely touch it these days I don't feel bad at all.

 

I'm feeling exceedingly lazy today. I may just tell my husband to eat whatever he wants and finish off my chicken pot pie. He has a stash of pizzas and there is that spare meatloaf if he feels like that would make him happy.

chili is chili-ing, perfect day for it as it has been raining for 2 days.  yesterday i made bette hagman's vinegar pie crust for the first time trying pie crust of any kind.  it's in the friger and it looks normal :)  i'm not sure whether i want to fool with it in front of the hubs - plastic wrap is not my friend.  but i may need someone to cut it off me should i become dangerously entangled.....  hmmmmm....

 

i has pie crust.  i am mad with power.  pie crust power, that is  ;)

I am not the only with saran wrap issues, I see. :lol:

 

Bette Hagman rocks! First woman of gluten-free baking. 

 

If you do not like her version for any reason, I HIGHLY recommend Peter and Kelli Bronski's pie dough recipe.

Flaky, light and rolls out like the real thing. Tastes awesome. 

 

When my Mom, the champion flaky pie crust maker of the family (besides my Gramma, her mother)

said to me last Thanksgiving  "omg, this is just like my mother's!" to me,

well, it was the proudest G F baking moment of my albeit short-thus-far G F baking career.

 

Let me know if you want to try it and I'll  type it out for you.

 

Enjoy that chili (I loves me some chili!)

:lol: skip the crust and just put a topping on it (like a crumble) and that would be good enough for me.

 

At any rate, i don't think the cabbage in that soup would go good with cake :lol:

I pulled my frozen meatloaf out today. Just not feeling like cooking. I'll think up some veggies for it and have an easy dinner. We've got some errands to run this afternoon and I'm paying a dear price for my indulgences last week. Plus, not feeling super has led to a wee pile of dishes over the weekend that I need to tackle today. :ph34r: I must have misplaced my magic wand.

I started a pot roast and veggies crock pot thinger (I love LOVE2TRAVEL's word) this morning before I went to the gym.

 

(yes, I went to the gym the day after major yard work, and after a week of heavy lifting and really, what the heck is going on here? Me, doing physical labor and not wanting to kill myself from the pain??!  Healing the gut, collagen supplements, change in diet, MT, PT..... and magic wands at work, I guess. whoohoo) 

 

and I have to say, I just returned and the house smells like YUM!!! :) Slow cookers are wonderful thingers. Karen was right!

 

If you find your magic wand, Addy would you kindly wave it over the rest of the garden for me. Make the leaves disappear?

I'd like to know who put that giant pin oak over my garden beds. I'd like to kick his butt.  Oh wait, I'm the doofus who put the garden beds

too close to the tree 16 years ago. duh.

My best friend who used to be my roommate has always complained that I made her fat while we were living together. How? My insomnia. How does my insomnia make other people fat? Well, things like tonight happen. When you are tired and can't sleep you get bored. When you are bored, you get hungry. When you grew up baking and are bored and hungry, you migrate to the kitchen.

 

I didn't actually bake tonight, but suddenly decided I couldn't live another moment without tapioca pudding. Not the kind that comes in a Jello pudding box, and not the kind that comes in a red box. The kind that comes from pearls that you stir for half a lifetime. I have to say that there is nothing in the world quite like a bowl of warm tapioca pudding late at night. I know what I'm having with my dinner tomorrow... if it lasts that long.

Chicken stir fry, rice and veg.

I have been starving all day, I ate too many cashews.

My garden is a mess. If only we could do all the stuff we do when selling a house to the one we live in now. Mind you, me have visitors booked for 3 days next month, so have to get the spare room sorted by then...

I'm a brutal task-master and have no qualms barking orders and tossing out things. (hard to believe, given how delightful and sedate I am, isn't it?) Shall I come over?

yes, the end of the month we have family coming in - one spare room is 'ready' - we have alot to do.  plus, i can't get everybody to commit what exact day they are coming, so all my plans on who to put in which house/room are all up in the air.  on the up side, these plans will probably change one hundred times from now til then!

the tossing out things part!!  between me (sentimental) and hubs ("that might be good for something - we might *need* it")  we have a bunch of crap that, honestly, i would never go looking for or miss if it was gone.  it's the tossing out part we get stuck on!

Not I, not me. (I love doing that, did you notice?) LOL

I keep sentimental stuff too, but the stuff you have not used in five years? Never going to use it. Let it go.

Will soon be on a plane to Croatia. Dinner tonight will just be a snack as I have several billion excited butterflies in my tummy. Cannot wait for the wondrous seafood and fish from the Mediterranean! We will be frequenting the markets for fresh produce to cook in our charming outdoor kitchen, which is a far cry from our solid block of ice we call northern Canada. Snowing at the moment. Again! REDRUM, REDRUM, REDRUM. THINGER, THINGER, THINGER. Don't worry about me...bwah ha ha ha....

I had a blast using a paper shredder for 3 days. That thing is awesome!

The things "someone" had kept "JIC"...oy. Everyone needs receipts from 1984 right? :mellow:

I should talk, I had student grade sheets, letters, evals, etc. from just as far back. I kept some of them because they meant something to me

at the time. One read- through on a rainy afternoon and I had a good cry and a few laughs, put aside a chosen few (most importantly, the notebook of hand-written letters from the very first class I taught back in the stone age) and the rest, I shredded and chucked.

No regrets.

    • Hi Kasia2016, Yes, celiac disease symptoms can vary widely.  Some people have no symptoms, we call that silent celiac.  Other have difficulty walking (gluten ataxia), skin rashes (dermatitis herpetiformis), and thyroid disease (Hashimoto's thyroiditis).  The list goes on and on.  GI symptoms can vary widely too, from mild symptoms at times to severe symptoms.
    • Hi egs1707, Welcome to the forum! Irene is right, you should not be gluten-free until all testing is completed.  The celiac disease tests are checking for immune system reactions and damage, and when you go gluten-free that starts to decline.  So the tests may not show the true immune reaction that is going on or the normal damage.  They may not show any damage in fact and you could get a false negative diagnosis.  You body starts healing and out the window go the test results.  Your doctor gets an "F" grade if they told you to go gluten-free now. But you aren't alone in having a doctor who doesn't understand the celiac disease testing process.  Many of them are woefully ignorant of proper testing for celiac disease.  That why the current estimate is somewhere in the range of 85% of celiacs in the USA are undiagnosed.  It doesn't help when doctors screw up the testing themselves.  Or refuse to test people.  Which is also far too common. I was vegetarian for 5 years.  I am not anymore and don't recommend it.  It is hard enough living gluten-free and finding safe food to eat and adequate nutrition for healing a damaged body.  I used to eat a lot of soy products when I Was vegetarian, but now soy makes me physically sick.  We can sometimes develop reactions to foods we eat a lot of while our guts are inflamed IMHO.  Soy is not a healthy food anyway from my reading. I can't do dairy now but may people who start out lactose intolerant end up being able to eat dairy after they have recovered. The best advice I can give is to avoid as much processed food as you can, and eat mostly whole foods you cook yourself at home.  When you do cook, cook big, and freeze the leftovers.  That way you can quickly take a small portion of food out of the freezer and reheat it.  Being celiac it is more important to learn how to cook.  Unless you are wealthy all those gluten-free processed foods add up quick.  Plus gluten-free processed foods often are lacking in fiber and vitamins. You'll want to watch out for vitamin deficiencies also.  Since celiac disease damages the villi in the small intestine, the vitamins and minerals etc are not digested and absorbed well.  So celiacs can be low on vitamin D, calcium,  and one other one I forget.  Vitamin B-12 may be low also ( it is important for nerve health).  Then there are some vitamins that vegetarians tend to have problems getting enough of also to consider. Adjusting to living with celiac disease means adjusting to a new diet and some lifestyle changes.  There's lots of us that make that change every year though, it's not impossible.  You will most likely end up eating better, more nutritious food than many of your peers.  And you will avoid a pletora of additional health concerns that can come along with untreated celiac disease. Learning to cook can be an adventure and you may enjoy it once you start.  you may find your taste in foods changes once you have been gluten-free for a while too. Recovery from celiac disease can take some months.  The immune system is very serious about protecting us and doesn't give up quickly.  Also it always remembers so it will react to even small amounts of gluten.  I live with gluten eaters at home and I do fine.  I just am careful about rinsing dishes off and so forth before using them. There is a Newbie 101 thread at the top of the coping with forum subsection.  It may provide some helpful info.  
    • That's great to hear you are feeling better Nightsky.  I really think when our GI systems are in distress already that it doesn't take much to set off symptoms.  Once I eliminated the other foods that cause me symptoms that helped a lot too.  And added some extra vitamin D to my diet and selenium. Many of us have developed reactions to other foods besides gluten and need to avoid them to keep symptoms at bay.  For me nightshades, carrots, soy, dairy, and celery all cause symptoms.  It took me awhile to figure out all those food culprits, but it made a big difference getting them out of my diet. But we are all individuals, and our bodies react individually.  So you may or may not have additional food intolerances develop. Celiac is one of those life journey things and we learn as we go.  Just keep the bottle of aspirin handy!
    • Pastry chain goes gluten-free, using mangoes ... But gluten is also believed to cause celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, and wheat allergy, ... View the full article
    • I know that Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce  in the US is gluten free, I also know that in Canada it is NOT. This is a very reliable site: http://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/vinegar/ But it is in the US. I'm agast that the Irish Celiac Society says malt vinegar is gluten free.  I wouldn't use it. No sense taking any chance at all.
