Do you want the recipe?  its really quick and tasty.  But I don't remember what people can and can't eat - it has salsa and potatoes in it.

I'm sure someone will use the recipe if you post it. It does sound yummy.

 

Last night: chicken and wild rice soup (from a can)

Tonight: cilantro lime chicken soup (from a can)

 

Why? Because what I thought was worse than usual allergies because my husband was hanging out with his cat turned out to be a cold.... that actually turned out to be the flu. And I work like 12 days a year and this is the only time ever I've had to work 3 in a row and magically I choose now to get sick. World's. Best. Timing. I'm being super careful, not breathing on students, using enough hand sanitizer to choke a donkey. They're adult students, not kids, so no one panic.

Notice I couldn't wait to get a pic before I bit that pumpkin cupcake. :D  I think we should all get a photobucket account and post pics of our food here!  I love me some Food Porn!

I still want nothing but soup and frankly don't have money to throw at cans of soup every day. Not that I have a choice, but I don't want to cook either. I'm going to just pick up some already cut up veggies, throw them in a pot with some chicken and stock and boil some rice a bag. Bam! Dinner for the weekend. I'm frankly too sick to give a crap what my husband eats. He's a grown up, he'll figure something out. Or starve. Whichever. Either way, I'll be asleep all weekend so it won't affect me one way or the other.

me too - minus the veggies - i put stewed tomatoes over mine :)  comfort food for me!  after tonight's plan was tacos w/the grand kids but the meat was bad!  it had an expiration of 10/31.....  WHAT?  ground beef!  i bought iton monday, never checked the date until the package started expanding.  how can 'fresh' meat keep until 10/31 :o

 

anyways, hubs and kids had chinese take-out and i had leftover mac & chz.  i love the stuff.  if i was stuck on a desert island, i hope i was shipwrecked on a macaroni boat with a cow and a chicken and a giant tomato...........  i'll be all like:  "look, cow and chicken, another piece of the macaroni boat has washed ashore, but don't tell giant tomato!"

 

pentameter.  whameter....  i have been the voice of persuasion and reason ("because i said so") to 4 grandkids all day, babysitting.  going to sleep with the sick one - immune system, you're up.  let's see what ya got  <_<

Mac and cheese with stewed tomatoes is awesome!!! They used to serve that at the school I went to and I loved it so much. I was the only person who would do double lunch tickets that day, most people just had milk or milk and fruit.

 

Good luck with the not getting sick thing. Didn't work out for me, so you can have my leftover luck that clearly I didn't use.

Know what's the most insulting? Based on when I started feeling sick, I'm 99% confident I picked it up at the Expo. <_< I am 100% sure there were irresponsible people there who didn't belong there. Someone in line early had a lady join them with her daughter who wasted no time in proudly stating she had pink eye. My immediate thought was "what the holy hell is she doing here?!?!" :blink:

 

Note to self: get flu shot before next year's expo. I guess the bright side is I'm getting this whole being sick thing out of the way early this year. :mellow:

I have posted the Cowboy Steak soup recipe.  I thought it might be nice to make a place we could post soup and chili recipes.  Newbies might like it too.  I put the brand name of the things I used that might have gluten - like broth.  Thought that might make it easier.  I made my recipe with a bit more description that I might usually give.  I know we get people who haven't cooked much so I didn't want to scare them.

The soup my hub wants when he is sick - Noodles cooked in chicken broth.  Youngest son likes some rice in chicken broth.  Sometimes I will sneak a few shredded carrots in while the rice or noodles are cooking.

There are 2 things my dad can cook and wants to cook for himself -  One involves hot dogs and thinly sliced potatoes in a casserole.  the other is a box of mac and cheese, cooked hamburger and a can of stewed tomatoes.

Great idea for the soups and chili thread. I'll cut and paste a few there.

and kudos on posting a pic. Cupcakes look de-lish!!

 

The Atlanta brisket I made (I saw it on Cook's country) was really good and the meat was fork tender.I served it with smashed potatoes and steamed English peas.

Thursday, it made a delicious brisket sammy on the rolls I had made earlier in the week with a horseradish cream sauce and a cup of the escarole and white bean soup I had made Tuesday (in other words, it was "encore night") :D

Friday was homemade pizza.

Tonight could be lobster or some hogfish (which is a delicate, mild white fish that is just awesome) but the hubs is not into fish, so he'll get scallops. We'll see what the fish market is doing today. Probably pair that with some caribbean rice and Karen's favorite--haricots verts.

 

P>S> I have never been a fan of mac and cheese with tomatoes. No offense, all those who love it.

We all have our taste preferences.

My mom hates cheese (I know,I often wonder if I am adopted) and my dad loved the mac and cheese with toms) so we never even got mac and cheese that much as  kids. We had to go mooch at someone else's house for it.

My MIL made it with tomatoes. I found it ....blech.

tonight i think will be:  tacos, take TWO lolz - i have ground venison in the freezer.  i guess they can keep their never- expiring cow meat *shudder* 

 

unless i get another Great Idea for Dinner.  omgosh, i am having the worst craving for stromboli  :( 

 

i got glutened last weekend (eating out, "untrained" people staying with us, who knows from what) but it feels different - not so many digestive issues as balance/co-ordination, muscle ache, fatigue.  wierdddd.....  my headache went away almost immediately.   oh, and cranky as all get-out:  you should hear what i'm not saying out loud (shut up, shut up, shut up!)  -_-

my mil can't make it right, either.  

 

i do not believe, in the 25 years i have known her, that i have ever asked her for a recipe.  lolz!!   but she has plenty of mine - she even put my stuffed mushroom recipe in a cookbook her church group made for a fundraiser  :)  because it's freaking awesome :)

Oh, she could make it right apparently---my hubs and my Dad loved it. I just do not like toms in my mac and cheese.

 

at least your MIL acknowledges your talented cooking skills.  :) my first MIL LOVED me and my cooking. I was an angel in her eyes.

MIL #2? er, nothing about me was right.  <_< may she rest in peace.

if it makes you feel better, that's what happens if I get hit. Not the same as when first  DXed when I'd be sidelined for weeks.

The muscle pain ramps up to 10 and I get burning nerve and skin pain, a bunch of sores on my face and scalp, I feel off balance and awkward (more awkward than usual lol) , the  fatigue is unbeleivable and I want to punch people in the face. People I do not even know. I have to watch a bunch of comedies and stay inside.That's just not right.!... :ph34r: lol

yeah, that gluten head--she is a beeyutch!!

I don't really like the tomato and mac and cheese thing - right or wrong.

 

 

I haven't seen my current "MIL" in about 5 years.  Hub has seen her two or thee times so we know she is still around.  :ph34r:

Want mine? I see her 2 or 3 times a week. <_< I'm sure even my husband would be willing to give her away right now. :lol:

 

I'm a horrible person when I'm glutened too. I can't even go to Wal-Mart because if one person looks at me funny I'll start thinking things like "I swear to God if you so much as open your mouth in my direction I'll stab you in the eye with a spork from the deli." And so I stay home and don't even talk to my husband without the disclaimer that I may say something I don't mean.

 

Mmmmm.... stromboli. I think the only thing I'm willing to try to get down this sore throat is honeyed tea and more soup. A stromboli does sound like a fun challenge though.

for the stromboli, i'm gonna hafta find that dough recipe.  technology bites me in the a$$ again - i was so forward-thinking, i copied all my gluten-free favorites to a file on my laptop.  which is currently blue screening...............  i shoulda backed it up onto a stick, but i am stoopit  :huh:

A failed or malfunctioning computer doesn't mean everything is lost. It is possible if you take it to a tech they can retrieve your hard drive information. A blue screen is rarely (if ever) related to your hard drive, so your information is probably all intact. If you have truly valuable information on there, you can probably go to a tech and tell them what you want and see if they can retrieve it for you.

 

Now if isn't something you already do, you need to get yourself a three-ring binder and start printing out recipes so this never happens again. :P

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
