Found this recipe for Tortillas's I think I really want to try it! What do you guys think?

 

 

Like corn tortillas, these become pliable when heated. Pop them in the microwave or warm them in a dry skillet before using. If you like crispy edges, add a little oil to the pan when reheating.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3/4 cup yellow split peas
  • 1/4 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • oil for the pan

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cover the split peas and rice with 2 inches of water. Cover and set aside on the counter overnight.
  2. Drain the peas and rice, then put them into the bowl of a food processor. Add the salt, then process until the mixture is finely chopped, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  3. With the motor running, gradually pour in ½ cup water. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, then continue to process for 3 minutes. The batter should be the consistency of pancake batter (but grainy). If it’s too thick, stir in a spoonful or more of water.
  4. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add a thin layer of oil. Pour in 1/3 cup of the batter, then spread it around with a rubber spatula until you have a 7-inch tortilla. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until the tortilla is golden around the edges. Flip and cook 30 seconds to 1 minute more, until bottom side is lightly freckled. Remove from the pan, then repeat the process for the remaining batter.

Yield: 7 tortillas

I made a Grand Marnier Souffle with Creme Anglaise for dessert last night. First time I've made it since going gluten free. I just substituted cornstarch for flour and it came out fine.

 

I've got nothing fun to share...so I thought I'd add RMJ's recipe to this thread  :P

We saw it was delayed. Daytona is @150 miles north of us. We had 83 and sunny today, but rain is coming this week and a lower average temp. (like maybe 76 ?? lol)

 

The hubs rarely makes any requests and he was craving corned beef and cabbage. (I have no luck eating preserved meats like that, but...) I love and humor him and he put up mirrors, art work, towel racks, bird feeders, and shelves today, so he deserved a treat!

 Therefore,

Corned beef and cabbage, carrots, potatoes, baby onions and turnips he got!. YUM!!

Last night I grilled a pork tenderloin and had it with some leftover sides from two days before.  Had my IV infusion this week and it beat the heck out of me this time so I haven't done a lot of cooking.  Tonight I am going to whip up breakfast for dinner. :D

We're on the road vacationing in Florida, so we made gluten free waffles at a park for lunch and served them with coconut butter, peanut butter, applesauce, and jam as well as some recently picked Florida oranges. (yay for power plugs for my waffle iron and blender!) For supper, we went out to eat at California Pizza Kitchen.

 

We just started making cooked food on the road instead of buying gluten-free bread and so far, I love it! On our trip down to Florida, when we stopped because of an unexpected tire problem, we cooked up some gluten-free oatmeal and raisins in the lobby of the tire shop. (in a rice cooker) For lunch, we found a rest area with electrical outlets and cooked up spanish rice and beans in my rice cooker and ate it with some salsa and had it with hummus and veggies. 

 

I'm so done with spending $50-100 on bread for vacation, so I'm glad that there are other viable options!

Great idea! How long is the cooking time and how much water do you add to how much lentils and rice?

for a 1/2 cup of uncooked  lentils and a 1/2 cup of  uncooked brown rice I add 3 cups of water. I also add red onion and what ever spices I feel like that day  :P  My rice cooker has an automatic timer but the cooking time is about 45 - 50 mins

 

 

This is doable in the rice cooker because the brown rice and lentils have the same cooking time.

my bff was there - the last time she went to a race, we went to talladega and there were tornado warnings all day the saturday before the race!!  i texted her and told her to leave the track yesterday.  so she did and it quit raining LOLZ

 

we made the most awesome battered and fried shrimp the other night!!  i tweaked a batter recipe and it turned out really good  :)  with purple potatoes and asparagus (roasted evoo, s&p)  *NOTE - do not forget that you ate purple potatoes.,  it is Very Alarming!!*

 

yesterday, we made Daytona Sandwich (french bread dough shaped like the track)  it's really roasted chicken, fresh spinach, roasted red peppers, and pesto/mayo.  we started out making it to amuse the kids, but the kids are now pushing 30 and still demand it.  i made my own gluten-free version <shaped like a drag strip haha udi's french baguette)  and i made homemade pimento cheese :)

Glad your bff left the track....was very glad they were able to squeeze the race in between storm cells and not have to holdover to a Monday restart!!!!  Really glad the Little E won :wub: what a great victory lap...never seen him look that happy.

 

Fun sandwiches....you'd need an extra big sandwich considering how long it took to get the race in the books ;)

 

Yesterday....I had a waffle and today two slices of Canyon Bakehouse....crossing everything I got that I can handle a little bread  :ph34r:

Last night I made pancakes with marionberry syrup and scrambled eggs. I still have no idea what's for dinner tonight. I'll probably disappoint my husband with burgers and fries. I don't want any leftover floating around because we're going out for our anniversary tomorrow. We celebrate whenever it's convenient for us at the end of February/beginning of March since we don't have an anniversary most years.

 

I'm feeling pretty spunky today. I finally went for my dexa scan (it only took 2 years to have decent insurance to pay for it) and he told me that my doctor would have the report in a few hours but he let me know right away that it was perfectly fine. I guess that habit of drinking gallons of milk a week my entire life paid off. With all the other crap I have to deal with, at least this is one concern I can completely wave off. It's nice to have good news for a change. :D

Yesterday was perfect. The year we got married it was insanely warm, I wore a sleeveless dress and no coat. In February. So far every year we've celebrated, we've never had to wear winter coats. Sometimes we do wait til March to celebrate though since we don't usually have an anniversary. Although yesterday was a tad chilly with the rain and I did wear a sweater. We went to Wallaby's which is a BBQ place for lunch at their just opened new location which is much closer to home. Went shopping for a while and went to the movies to see Hunger Games.

 

Tonight I'll make a pork tenderloin, potato pancakes and glazed carrots.

    • Mnoosh,    Can you give us a link to the article you read about the increased risk after being diagnosed and maintaining a strict gluten-free diet??       IMO,   You are over reacting to a misprint or most likely a misread article.
    • Yes!  With dairy, celiacs can often have a temorary lactose intolerance due to damaged intestinal villi (where the enzymes normally are released to digest lactose).  Of course you could be naturally lactose intolerant based on race or age.  It is best to stick to a whole foods diet while you are healing.  Really, is ice cream or potato chips going to provide you with nutritional value?  Stick with naturally gluten free foods like meat, fish, fats,  veggies (even those with carbs like sweet potatoes or winter squash) and fruit.  Avoid that processed junk as you may react to the additives right now.  Later, you can add back in dairy (test) and other foods you miss and crave.   Good luck!  
    • Take a deep breath and calm down!    The incidence of cancer with Celiac Disease is rare.......it can happen but the vast majority of people never have that experience.  You may have somewhat enlarged lymph nodes due to inflammation from undiagnosed Celiac but that will all calm down and go away once you get going on the diet.  Believe me, there are many of us that have things happen during the diagnosis and early recovery period and everything turned out just fine.  There is an elevated risk for some cancers with Celiac but that risk goes back to that of the general population after a couple of years on the gluten-free diet. I cannot remember the exact time frame but it is somewhere between 2-4 years, I think.  So many of us went years without a diagnosis and when it was all figured out, we have gone on to be healthy with little complications.  Really...do  not worry about this.  Concentrate on learning all the ins and outs of this disease and how to live gluten free happily.  We are here to help you and guess what? The diet is not as bad as some make it out to be. Many things can be made gluten free and are every bit as good as their gluten counterparts. The diet may not be convenient but it is not hard. I would not lie to you!   
    • Well....one common symptom that most celiacs have when they are diagnosed (or undiagnosed) is anxiety.  So, there is a risk of cancers, but science has demonstrated that that risk goes down on a gluten free diet (if you have celiac disease).  In goes down to the same risk as those without celiac disease.   I kind of was a basket case.  I drive my family a bit crazy because I was anxious.  I felt a bit stupid too.  I guess I had a little brain fog going on too.  All that resolved after I healed. Welcome to the fourum.  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" (pinned at the top of the page) and learn about hidden sources of gluten and cross contamination.  I think most of us do not worry about cancer. We mourn the freedom to eat anything anywhere!   I did not have swollen lymph nodes, but I am sure others have and they did not have cancer.  Hopefully, they will chime in and set your mind at ease.  If not, you can search for "lymph nodes" at the top of the page (little magnifying glass).  There are lots of members with the same issue!  
    • I was recently diagnosed as having celiac and to be honest the part I'm having the most trouble with isn't the change in food or lifestyle. I'm really upset about what I've read about the risk of cancer increasing with celiac disease. I think this is playing into my fears because I currently have lymph nodes all over my body-my Doctor says they are not considered swollen or concerning, but I don't usually feel nodes. The lymph nodes and horrible diarrhea for the last 3 weeks were what got me into the the doctor for lab work. My blood work came great so I'm wondering if anyone else experienced lymph nodes reacting when they found out they were celiac? Also how do you deal with anxiety surrounding the increased risk of cancer? Thanks!
