I use the Chebe dough sometimes and I baste it with a garlic-olive oil infusion before I add my toppings and it lightly browns and yet, is still chewy. I give it a good dose of basil and oregano, too

 

I do not add extra cheese to the dough--it really does not need it. IMHO

Food we have had the last few days:

Steak on the grill with veggie ( potato, red pep, sweet onion & pineapple) kabobs - marinated in San-J Teryaki

Thai chicken pizza - tomato based BBQ. Sauce topped with grilled chicken, moz, small pieces of broc - when it comes out, top with a generous drizzle of spicy peanut sauce and crushed peanuts

BBQ chicken pizza - BBQ sauce moz and cheddar, grilled chicken, red onions

Steak on the grill with foil packets of russet potato slices, corn and margarine ( butter tends to burn and stick)

Tonight- Smoked pork served on Udis whole grain buns with BBQ sauce, Ruffles, Cheesy corn bake, carrots and celery sticks & PB choc chip cookies

Steak salad with the left over steak - with some local sheep cheese

Pasta with popped tomato sauce and arugula and turkey Ital sausage

Didn't do the beans, maybe tomorrow night with burgers and lemon brownies

Yum, yum, yum...I think I'll just send my crew to KC!!!

 

Should you do the beans manana -- I am told this batch was my best -- could be a case of absence makes the heart....

 

but here is the newest rendition:

 

2/3 of an industrial sized Bush's

1/3 bottle cheap maple syrup

small red onion chopped - never seen one this small -- so maybe 1/4 of a reg red onion

 

mixed in large rectangle/lasagna pan

 

top with 1/2 to 1 pound of bacon - raw strips cut in thirds

 

Bake at --- here is the change to deal with my silly heat issue -- Bake at 200 for 4-5 hours and then 350 for the last 15-20 mins to make extra crispy bacon -- everyone swears these were better than remembered -- The original recipe is two hours at 350 and works great too.

 

I had heat issues today so didn't make desert...Dad's neighbor dropped by with a coconut cream pie that he, My Mom :wub: , my sis and my honey enjoyed....then I threw all the placemats an napkins in the wash -- thinking lemon brownies would have been easier ;)

How big is an industrial can of beans? What is your silly heat issue? That you can't be hot? Just crank up the AC or go to the basement or other room.

lol...I have an allergic-type reaction to heat or exercise.....my body's inability to process histamine...only AC here by the beach is in my car -- not very safe to drive when hopped up on benedryl to counter the silly reactions going on.

 

point of earlier post was....I adjusted my "classic 1930's gas oven to a lower temp and the beans were better than ever -- hope that makes sense...if not, will adjust with clear head in the morning.

I believe this is what any of us familiar with food service would refer to as a #10 can.

Happy Memorial Day Dinner Peeps!

 

Proud niece of my dear Uncle Jack today as he will serve as Grand Marshall of the Hurley, New York Memorial Day Parade.  I plan to ride to Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery this morning -- I ride and walk there regularly a it is one the most beautiful spots in all of San Diego.

 

Now for this bean non-sense --

 

I donned gloves and grabbed the original recipe outta the gluten filled recipe box to write the original here...all my doctoring was disussed yesterday:

 

1 Tall Can Van DeKamps Pork n' Beans

1/3 Cup dry instant onion

Maple Syrup - any cheap kind (no quantity given) about 1/3 to 1/2 cup

Striping Bacon

 

Combine in 2 1/2 quart cassorole, top with bacon

 

Bake at 350 until bacon brown ~2 hours.

 

Edited to ADD -- I used VanDeKamps one time back in the late 80s ---- have used Bush's Original along with fresh red onion ever since...doctor however you wish -- just do not omit the bacon ;)

..........ok, now, I want beans. :lol:  good morning sunshine!!

 

I think we're going to have BBQ ribs, chicken and your quickie beans tonight, but NO more cake.

I will use diced onions and "not cheap" maple syrup, though. We have some from a local guy down the road

(just across the border) in VT who taps his trees.

 

For Sat. dinner with J's Aunt Ann,  I made  vanilla cake,added a dollop of homemade vanilla bean ice cream , some crushed fresh pineapple and some bourbon vanilla-spiked whipped cream. I gave her a few pieces of the cake, but had some left and It called to me last night and I made a quick chocolate ganache and topped it with coconut.  OINK!

 

yup, this getting back into a Bikini diet works great!!

Alone tonight so am having mixed baby greens with toasted pepitas, almonds, dried apricots, Parmesan shards and orange Dijon vinaigrette.  Am also making rosemary focaccia to dip into grassy, peppery green Croatian olive oil with a generous sprinkling of Mediterranean sea salt.

AWESOME Weekend -- yay for all -- especially that you could do all that including KICKball :D

 

So I ran out of time to pick up Shrimp yesterday so did it this morning -- Shrimp tonight :)

 

Last night we had BBQ Boneless Chicken Breasts with scrumpdilitious mac and cheese -- I ate some of it -- not a terrible outcome -- just a little bloating and a bit more achy then usual this morning after a nice Benedryl deep sleep ;)  Think I'll wait a bit before I try to eat that many histamine inducing foods in one day again!

 

Have to jump thru multiple insurance hoops for Mom today then Son is taking me and my Sis to the fancy movie theater -- can't wait to sit and veg for two hours.

 

Oh and the best part of the weekend -- hubby took pitty on me as my saltwater swimming pool project keeps getting put on the back burner each time my folk call.  He leveled groomed the dirt, installed the new liner (looks like river rock - huge improvement) and got the plumbing all taken care of...I was able to jump into my salt water pool twice to cool down yesterday - once after my bike ride and once after taking care of folks and other sit which got me over heated -- YAY for my hubs :D

Slight change in plans.  My poor body is hurting like mad after planting some containers with flowers so I opted to eat an ENTIRE 8" focaccia!  I could not help myself.  Then I had about a billion cherries and several hundred green pearl grapes.  No D yet!  :mellow:

i gotta say it:  i kind of teared up a little - you guys really understand what it's like to not be able to do anything (or have the energy, ambition or courage) that requires effort.  i am seriously not feeling like i was hit by a truck!  it's amazing  :)  was a little tired of doing things yesterday but all in all i was active most of the whole three days!

 

great to hear about mac & cheese 'experiment' lolz and the pool - gotta treat that hubs extra special, wink wink nudge nudge :)  it's finally hot enough here for us to be inclined to take a dip.

Soooo son that is learning to cook reacted to his first batch of chili -- not sure what happened...we checked the canned beans we used for gluten...but the white beans were seasoned -- today was chili cookoff 2.0 -- we used kidney and white beans from dry -- this batch looks even better...happy that he wanted to try again so soon after the first batch.

 

Making honey cornbread now...happy men ahead :)

    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.
