I have a question. I have some leftover pot roast, a box of opened beef stock I don't think I'll use within a week, and some leftover tinkyada noodles. Can I made a soup out of this stuff? Or should I freeze it?

I vote for soup. Do you have any leftover vegetables? Carots, onions, beans of any kind, rice ...just dump it all in. A can of V-8 would be good,too.

I keep a plastic container in the freezer that I put leftover dabs of vegetables and beef into. Then at soup time, I dump it in a pot with beef or vegetable broth (canned) and simmer away.

Last night I made egg rolls and pork foo young. That was an experiment and it turned out really good.Since I can't eat safely at most Chinese restaurants, I'm learning to do it myself,

Tonight it's beef stew with slaw and cornbread.

Love this thread! We had a venison roast in the crockpot yesterday. I made it with carrots, celery and potatoes. Tonight I'm making gravy out of the "juice" and leftover meat and veggies.

Tonight I'm having a baked tilapia fillet, baked potato and spinach. Easy, peasy since I got the kitchen cleaned up after baking bread.

I loved that stuff.

We are having turkey tetrazini with left over turkey and a spinach salad.

That sounds delish! I've never heard of Irish Davy Boy's though. I'll have to keep my eyes open for it!

My crockpot chicken turned out pretty well - but turned into more of a soup there was so much liquid! And I barely added any in the beginning, maybe 1/4thcup of oj and 1 orange squeezed. The meat was very tender though. Maybe I'll just add some noodles and call it chicken noodle soup :P

Okay, I'm good with the squash and cornbread but what is the oven risotto all about?

Karen is right--this stuff is good!

Last night I made it without the chicken--works great either way--

So funny--I was thinking the same thing. My son would love it--I am going do do a rib roast and the risotto would be really good with it. Plus it can go right alongside it in the oven :)

I cooked last night! Not for me (still on the protein shakes....countdown to xmas party T-minus 9 hours :rolleyes: ) But the dinner was a hit with the fam:

Poached chicken thighs in chicken stock, with lots of garlic and seasonings

-deglazed the pan after I removed the chicken with a little water, added a pkt of mushroom gravy-to make gravy ;)

Served over mashed potatoes that I cooked in chicken stock, then added milk and butter.

Not cooking today, going out for Chinese. The place we go to have gotten to know us over the years and when I told him about Celiac he started making my dishes positively gluten free. No more eggrolls but I can still eat the rest!!!

Yay!

Support your local businesses they are more likely to take you seriously and provide gluten free options!!!

Ugh! Went out to Olive Garden last night and got glutened somehow. I got their gluten free pasta to try for the first time. The pasta was actually good, in fact I suspect they gave me regular pasta because this did not taste like any gluten free pasta I have tried. My first clue should have been when the waitress asked if "gluten free" was the same thing as "low carb". :unsure:

Tonight I'm planning on making a meatloaf and a pack of steamed veggies. I may have to make my DH assemble the meatloaf though since I'm running to the bathroom every 30 minutes right now. :(

Tonight I made a basic meatsauce to go on top of TJ's rice pasta. Tasty & easy! Basically I put a whole onion in the food processor and sauteed it with 1lb of TJ's ground beef until it browned, added a can of tomato sauce and a small can of tomato paste, a cup of water, tsp sugar, tsp salt, and various dried herbs. I had one serving and my boyfriend inhaled the rest :o

Today I also turned the rest of my crockpot chicken into chicken noodle soup buy adding in some more water, chicken stock, straining out the glop, shredding up the bits of chicken and cutting up the chunks of potato and carrots. Also added some more herbs and a squeeze of honey. Very comforting!

Pot roast with onions, carrots, home-made 48 hour beef stock; yorkshire pudding (no, not my idea, hub wants to try - good luck!! - he's got better creds than I do - taught by his Welsh nana, my mom never made it) and broccoli.

We have to have a super quick to fix meal tomorrow so I'm heating up a turkey breast that is already cooked, making instant mashed potatoes with water and Nucoa only (no milk) and I'll probably pop open a can of green beans.

Well as I predicted I didn't feel like cooking last night, so we had burgers and sweet potato fries instead. One good thing, my DH went to the store and bought me some Schar gluten-free buns. It was my first time trying them and they were pretty good. I usually just do the burger without a bun or use lettuce wedges. Tonight is meatloaf if I can get my act together. My DH tried some of my leftover gluten-free pasta from Olive Garden and confirmed it tasted just like regular pasta. Since I haven't had gluten pasta for almost a year I wasn't sure, but he confirmed my suspicions.

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
