Some hard low fat cheddar and fruit to start. Then some sweet and sour chicken stir fry. I'm getting bored with my food lately, time to hit the recipes to find something different. Trying to get thoughts of kettle potato chips out of my head!

Half a pound of snow pea stir-fried with about 1/2 c brown rice, 1/2 an onion, 1 carrot, deep fried tofu, and clean out the peanut butter jar peanut sauce.

Would have been brilliant EXCEPT I forgot the trim the ends off the snow peas. Ooops.

My husband worked late so I didn't have to cook! YAY! A night off for me is really rare.

I had some watermelon, strawberries, blueberries, some corn chips with cream cheese and salsa, a few slices of lunch meat roast beef and a glass of milk.

We're having pizza tonight. One with roasted garlic, caramelized onions with fontina and mozzarella cheese and some fresh basil, the other plain pepperoni for the kiddos. We haven't had pizza in awhile, so I'm kinda excited. :)

I don't blame you - I would be excited, too! The caramelized onion, roasted garlic with those cheeses is marvelous.

Today is very cold - not a lot above freezing so to sum up supper: Chicken, Chorizo and Prawn Jambalaya!

We are supposed to get down to -3C tonight so am worried about all my pepper, tomato, basil, etc. plants. :( I just planted them this week and they have been doing so nicely. I absolutely killed my back doing it although they are in raised beds and cringe at the thought of replacing them.

That sounds delicious, but OMG! Where do you live?? We're complaining because of the heat here!

We live in northern Alberta but thankfully not in the area where there are catastrophic forest fires. Actually, that puts things into perspective.

This is unusually cold, even for here. To speak in gardening terms, we have on average only 87 frost-free days per year and are Zone 1a. No wonder I cannot wait to live in Croatia!!

Sounds good! Where do you find gluten-free pitas (what brand)? Or do you make them? I have seen recipes, I think, but I have not been brave enough to try making them. With the hot weather a pita sounds faboulous!

Leftover scalloped sweet potatoes and ground beef

http://www.food.com/recipe/scalloped-sweet-potatoes-with-ground-beef-88523

I replaced the flour with cornstarch and used wheat free soy sauce. It is probably more of a fall recipe, but it was actually a little chilly in my area yesterday and felt like fall so it was fitting. I am looking forward to the leftovers. I LOVE sweet potatoes!

Oh, that sounds good! Thanks for shaing! I might have to try making it in the slow cooker. There's no way I'm turning on my oven. We are in the upper 90's here today. I STILL don't know what to make for dinner. I'm leaning toward turkey sandwiches on toasted Udi's bread and baby carrots because I really don't want to cook.

    • Chipolte New Marinade
      I don't think any of their food was " certified" gluten-free?  
    • "Pre-Celiac" & scared
      Is there anyone else "pre-celiac" and asymptomatic like me who has had long-term success without losing their mind and still enjoying eating out without feeling like you have to stay in a plastic bubble?  This site has been helpful to me these past months.   I don't have it "Yet" and I am scared.  Sorry this is long but I wanted to be thorough: Two years ago I started experiencing GERD (heart burn, pain under my left rib cage, and regurgitation).  After trying probiotics, kambucha, kefir, apple cider vinegar, aloe juice, eliminating chocolate, citrus, tomatoes, spices, cinnamon, mint, alcohol, not eating 3 hours before bed, I was no better. I got an endoscopy/colonoscopy.  The dr found gastritis and esophagitis.  No hernia, infection or ulcer.  He started me on PPI.  I got 99% relief.  After 6 months I decided to go off PPI.  After suffering for 3 months, I went back to dr and back on PPIs for a year.  Because I am young, 39, and the PPIs have side effects, he discussed surgery with me. I went to a specialist. All the tests showed my esophagus was normal but my lower esophageal sphincter was not closing properly.  I was a good candidate and decided on the MUSE, (Endoscopically stapling the esophagus to prevent reflux) When the specialist did his endoscopy (1 year after previous one and before I was on PPIs regularly)  he saw villi damage that looked like textbook Celiac.  HUH?  I don't have ANY symptoms.  No cramps, vomiting, diarrhea, bloating, gas, discomfort, NOTHING.  He took biopsies and the results were "non-specific" perhaps "clinically latent celiac sprue" or a number of other things. So I took blood tests.  The celiac gene test was "susceptible" and I had "high" antibodies, but not positive.  Dr said go gluten-free to prevent  celiac. Did the PPIs cause the villi damage because I couldn't absorb the wheat properly and triggered celiac in me?  It sounds reasonable.   I wonder if now that I have had the MUSE and may be able to stop PPIs, will I be able to digest gluten better? Very interesting.  I plan to call a celiac specialist where I live to discuss this with him. I have not eaten gluten intentionally for 2.5 months now.  It did not help my GERD before the surgery.  Dr said they were unrelated anyway.  I am concerned about CC, breathing in, and accidental ingestion, but since I have no symptoms, I can never tell.  So I take glutenease when I eat out and glutamine powder to try to repair the damage.  How careful should I be since I don't have it "yet"? Amy's gluten-free frozen foods are great, and I read every label at Trader Joe's, eat off the gluten-free menu, corn tortillas @ Mexican, no soy sauce or imitation crab @ sushi, steamed veggies @ Chinese, & gluten-free pasta @ Italian. Member Lisa wrote, "Even though you eat as gluten free as possible, you probably consume close to that amount of gluten due to cross contamination in processed gluten free food and other exposures. ...Eating 100% gluten free is a total improbability. "
      Most people with Celiac can handle 20ppm.  So is that equivalent to breathing in flour?  Having a half a teaspoon of soy sauce by accident in Asian food?  I can live without bread and cookies, but gluten is IN  so many things. Some on this site with Celiac have separate toasters, don't eat out, and don't walk into bakeries while there are others that eat out and eat fries made in shared oil at BK.  Even I haven't done that.  Isn't it dangerous? Thank you for you help!!
    • Pins And Needles
      You sure did nail it! I was too worried it was MS or Lupus or Celiac to be able to really give that option a chance. If anything my guess was low b12. The only obvious things in my diet are Vitamin water and protein bars. If you look at food it's in practically everything in pretty high doses. Going gluten-free uncovered this or made it start. MTHFR gene maybe? Magnesium too low? I haven't taken my multi & am looking up everything I'm eating. Still having the twitches but not near as much in my calves and feet. My arch pain is gone & energy is up a bit. Still twitching though and had some arm and shoulder pain overnight. I read it can be 6 months or longer for nerves to heal.
    • Chipolte New Marinade
      Chipotle is changing their preparation methods including how the marinade for the chicken and steak. Does anyone know if it's been certified gluten free?
