Really is great when our family starts to see improvement themselves from our healthier diets.  Funny...even my kids are saying that they ate this or that at their friends homes or out and about and it just doesn't taste as good as it used to. 

 

Oh Welcome to the dinner chat - glad you stopped in - come back anytime -- we are always open ;)

Welcome, 28in4dave!  Glad to have you here.  :)   I am definitely with you on the fresh thing.  I make nearly everything from scratch including BBQ sauces, ketchups, mustards, all sorts of preserves, sauces, pesto, etc.

 

Tonight we are grilling thick bone-in pork chops that I brined, olive oil-rubbed baked potatoes (with bay leaves and garlic in between the halves) and spicy Japanese cucumber salad.  Oh, and something with strawberries - I will probably make shortcakes.

Anyhoo...

Country Ribs from the butcher--done in a homemade BBQ sauce plus mango juice--also simmering slowly in there.Some cole slaw on the side.YUM

 

I also confess to drinking champagne right now  because...WHOOHOO..we signed the building loan for the house !

 

meanwhile all this cooking is being done while the air conditioners are running BECAUSE IT IS AN UNREAL 93 HERE IN NYS...meanwhile, in FLA -- it is a lovely 80 today. :mellow:

made gyros from buffalo bison meat and bacon, ate them on premade udi's pizza crust - yumzz :)

 

last night we 'lobster boiled' (with corn and potatoes) as celebration - only have the oldest and her hubs and adorable grand daughter once a year due to the USAF - so we splurged (or so it started out) i actually ended up with a deal after the fish counter guy over charged me.  i pointed out his mistake and he was so afraid of trying to get the live lobsters back out of the bag to re-weigh them, he charged me 2.99 per lb lolz i guess if you want to win at negotiating, take a lobster!!

 

tonight is special request shrimp picatta w/parslied potatoes and strawberry salad.  <grew the strawberries i am soooooo excited :D

 

ps - i think i got potato skins back - so far so good ;)

toddling off to refill the whine--- oh I mean wine -- ya it was that type of day

 

but i got a bitchin little chair raft when combined with my little rainbow unbrella makes an adorable image as a float in my salt water pool -- not...but I don't give a damn.

 

dinner was steak with zucchini and red onion served poolside by my personal cabana man-- sorry just can't picture hubs as cabana boy.

 

the men are off cycling "critical mass" -- hundreds of cyclists take over the city streets while I sit home and worry -- at least the son that recently decided he no longer needed a helmet...left with helmet in hand...I slipped him five bucks and said I am willing to bribe him to protect his melon... if he is stupid enough to not want to.  I'm sweet that way  :wub:

I ended up with too much sun yesterday, and fell asleep on the couch. Mr Mindwarp woke me up for chicken and rice.

I am starting a whole30 again today, but I have stayed pretty clean since my 1st one in January. So, no rice or white potatoes, and cutting down on nuts and dried fruit. The weight loss slowed, and I still have around 45lbs to go.

More sun today :) (maybe not too much though...)

Hi w8in,

Yes, it is a version of paleo. It has turned my life around since January. How is your daughter getting on with it?

Dinner tonight was Thai green curry. My 1st since gluten-free last September. It was divine. Been about 6 hours and so far so good....

In all the time I spend here, my husband has never noticed the bacon before. Last night he looks up and gets this "look" in his eyes and is like.... "I want dancing bacon" in the most pathetic adorable way. :lol:

 

I know it is unoriginal at this point and I probably sound like a broken record, but we're doing burgers tonight. I'm sure I'll think of something to have with them.

 

In exciting news, I went to the store Thursday night and wondered down a frozen aisle which never happens and noticed an entire shelf of Genius bread with a price label of $1.50. I grabbed my husband and was like, does that really say a buck and a half? I've seen people say this is good bread, but for all I'm spoiled in the city have never seen it before so I grabbed a loaf. I went back yesterday for 5 more. :D

I LOVE burgers( I admit it) and we had them tonight with asparagus on the grill. It's 93 dang degrees here.

There was more bread than I could count Thursday night. When I went back Friday afternoon there was maybe a dozen loaves left. The tag said close out sale so I am assuming that now that I found it and love it I will never buy any again. :( I suppose I should get over this because it is as nutritionally useless... where the bread I get at Costco has a veritable butt-ton of fiber. I just couldn't pass up such a good deal on bread that when I got it home tasted so much like.... BREAD!!!! (I have only had it as toast so that is the only opinion I have of it so far but omg I almost died when I popped that first piece.)

 

Anyway, to the reason I popped back in here. I was goofing off poking around yahoo a bit and found an absolute gem of a recipe that I just had to share. I think I just found the best ever summer BBQ recipe that will knock the socks off everyone invited. Bacon wrapped burgers. Not like I've seen before where they wrap a piece of bacon around the outside of a burger... no, this is serious business. Cut lengthwise to work better and basket weaved bacon wrapped burgers. I'm in love! :wub:

Yep, slightly grumbly guts but not intolerance symptoms. I reckon I can do it occasionally.

Hope that hip is better. I am liking the sound of that pool, ski :).

I'm off to buy a few more chair rafts...amazing how much fun we can have with a simple little pool -- one bonus is it was perfect temp within a day -- whereas my friends with beautiful built in pools are waiting for the water to warm up -- if i ever do get the beautiful pool...me thinks I'll go shallow and solar -- although I love to dive and always wanted a 9' deep end :D

now you're just going crazy  :D  

 

(and i really want chicken and waffles now)

 

and we are having:

 

chicken <no waffles> with wild mushroom & balsamic cream sauce

orzo for the gluten eaters, gluten-free noodles for me

A VEGGIE i told them to get whatever they want

 

today is my oldest daughter, son-in-law and grand-daughter's last day here - they are afraid to cook in my kitchen so they have been eating take-out food for breakfast and lunch all week.   which works for them because they live in a little town in new mexico that has hardly anywhere to eat out lolz.

    • Hi, I am 20yrs old and have had this weird stomach pains on and off for 2 years. They started by just having pains on my left side when I sucked in or pressed on my tummy. In the last 3 months they have gotten really bad, with a lot of bloating and used to occur almost every time just before bed I would get bloated, and feel constipated like I just needed a hole in my stomach to release the pressure. I have had tests for lactose and gluten, and they both came back negative. I was not having any gluten at the time of the test which I have read can affect the results. I had little help from my doctor so I went gluten free which was working really well and I would only have pain once every two weeks. The last three nights were awful, I was in so much pain I struggled to walk, and again they would go away in the morning. I looked like I was pregnant and relief was only through passing wind (sorry for the detail!). I was wondering if anyone has had similar experience, or could point me in a direction to help me. The weird thing is that I did have gluten one day and that didn't seem to affect me at all. Then I will have something like vegemite (I'm from Australia) and this is the only thing that I can think off that would set me off (it contains wheat). So I don't really know what do to or where to go, these stomach pains have been heightened since I had a horrible gastro for a week, and went to hospital. Could it be possible that my gut lining has been damaged? I have become really stuck on what I should do next, as tonight my stomach is fine, I actually feel hungry (previously I have felt super full as a result of being bloated), so I have no idea what triggered that horrible episodes before I went to bed for the last few nights. Any thoughts or suggestions would be amazing, thank heaps
    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
