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.

Mmmmmm... pancakes with strawberries.

Rack of pork (Smithfield) ribs, rubbed generously with Emeril's Original Rib Rub Seasoning (in the morning) and baked in the oven - until desired crispness....Grill works too on low, low, low.

Corn on the cob

Cesar salad.

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.

    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Sorry.  Something is wonky with either my connection or celiac.com! Your results are not specific...borderline.    That is why your PCP should refer you to a GI for further celiac blood tests and a possible endoscopy.  I recognize the lab report form.  Kaiser?  If so, a PCP can not order a full celiac panel.  Only a GI can do so.  Why bother?  Because if you test like me, the TTG tests are always negative.  Request the EMA and the DGPS test via a GI.   Do not be fooled by a lack of abdominal symptoms.  I was only anemic -- no abdominal issues at all.  Constipation is a symptom.  Your PCP is thinking is just historical Classic celiac disease symptoms.   Please email your doctor for the referral if you think you might have celiac disease and want a solid answer.    
    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.
