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!

I love my rice cooker :wub: I use it for so many things  in addition to rice :P

My fave is lentils & brown rice with red onion  ,,, just throw it all in the rice cooker and you have  a fresh cooked meal :D

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.

    • OK so been to the doctor, they've sped up my referral and I should get the appointment booking form in the post shortly. They've said stay off the gluten until I have a date for the appointment then in the weeks leading up to it go back on - thoughts? I seem to be getting some strange symptoms at the moment that have only happened since trying to remove gluten, do these sound familiar to anyone? dry forehead, just starting to go red \ itchy in places. Treating with E45-type cream tender scalp and sides of head, almost like a pulling feeling and a bit sensitive to touch. Scared this one matches the symptoms of GCA, a particularly nasty autoimmune disease that can lead to blindness  one eye watering and associated fuzzy vision at times, trying to reassure myself it isn't blurred vision due to the point above sometimes bit of a lump in throat sensation, seems to come and go Been reading that some people can't handle rice - I was OK with it whilst eating gluten but have been having it for lunch each day and seem to get worse around 4-5pm so could that be a culprit? How long after coming off gluten would I be able to say I'm at a baseline to know if feeling ill is down to "glutening" vs. blaming it on the body adjusting to the change in (lack of) gluten in food?
    • First of all, welcome to the forum! it's good to have you here. Secondly, I can really relate to the fatigue portion.  it really hadn't affected me until everything hit the ceiling medically for me.  I was constantly tired all the time, and waking feeling rested in the morning. Prone to depression and anxiety, definitely.  It drove me nuts for those first few weeks.  That's when I decided to try going off the gluten to see what happened.  I still dealt with the depression, anxiety at crazy levels, and inability to focus/concentrate, but it had gotten progressively better.  The anxiety got so bad I would have panic attacks in public areas which only ramped up the anxiety because people saw what was happening.  I would encourage you and your doctor to do a full Celiac panel before you decide to try the gluten free diet.  I had my blood work done after I was off gluten for about two months or so.  Thankfully, my levels were still high to register at least a gluten sensitivity.  Since going off gluten for almost a year now, things have started to finally appear "normal".  Whatever normal means for me now.  As I am healing from the 30 years of glutenizing, I combined both natural methods with the medical methods.  If you are interested in the different avenues of natural methods, I would be willing to share with you.  I will be praying for you as you go through this journey. Let me assure you, you are not alone in this journey.  Depending on family dynamics, they can be a great source of support.  This forum is also a great place to bounce thoughts or concerns off of.  Good luck.
    • I doubt it. I would think that would be a questions for the company that make them.    But if smoking makes you feel bad....and you are able to quit for several weeks at a time....why go back to it?
    • Hi. I've noticed that after a break of smoking (2-3 weeks) I feel bad, when I begin to smoke again.  Maybe they contain some additives with gluten??
    • Thank you everyone! Good to know I am not alone with this. I am asking for a referral to a new cardio. Hopefully it will all go away the longer I am gluten-free. It started up in February/March after a gluten challenge and mostly vanished until July when I had a lot of shortness of breath. It absolutely was CRAZY just a few days after the glutening. I was gasping for breath and the beats were all over the place just walking through a parking garage and I was only mildy anemic at the time.   But it seems to "quiver" and do funny things for a bit still. I sort of theorized maybe it was inflammation in the heart because after this last glutening, my head felt like it was in a vice and my eyes would sting or get stabbing pain hurt (that is finally going away thankfully...knock on wood).  The head/eye pressure I learned also happens to my sibling who has celiac and his naturopath told him that sometimes the brain gets inflamed. Hopefully I can meet the new cardio soon and feel confident that he is taking me seriously. It is sort of difficult to feel confident in the opinion of a doctor that your ticker is ok when they are not really listening and end up making you cry. LOL. A friend of mine in the mental health field recently listened to my story of doc after doc and test after test and said that it was akin to the folk story of blind men describing an elephant. A group of blind men all feel one part of an elephant (tusk, tail, ear, tail) and then compare notes only to find they all disagree.  In some  versions they argue intensely. In other versions they have to collaborate and listen to each other in order to "describe" an elephant.
