Oooh I like that one!  If you cook something that a lot of fat comes off of, like burgers, does it drain off the fat into something or a certain spot?

 

Yeah, it has a grease catcher. It isn't quite as awesome as it could be if something is SUPER greasy. But as long as things are only sort of greasy it works well. It's just a little black thing that slides in on the bottom. The trick is, and this is important, it only works if you remember to slide it in before you start cooking. Not that I have experience cooking greasy things without the grease tray or anything. :ph34r:

No prob! :) I had another lil recipe for bread. It had Almond Flour, egg and a sweetner or garlic, and water. You put it in a cup and microwave it. Reminded me of the 3-2-1 cake. Anyhow do you think I can find the recipe?? Nope! I loved that bread. 

I have this recipe for flax seed buns which I love love love :wub:  but flax does not love me :angry:

I wonder if I can covert this to say chick pea  flour instead of flax meal :mellow:

 

Gluten free flax seed buns

 

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon flax meal

1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder (opt)

1 tsp caraway seeds (opt)

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

drop or 2 of stevia

3 eggs

1 1/2 tablespoons water

1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

 

 

               

   

Mix the dry ingredients; add eggs, water and oil. Pour the batter into 6 greased muffin top pans. Bake at 325º 15-20 minutes. To serve, split the buns horizontally to make two halves using a long, thin knife.

Makes 6 servings

Can be frozen

Number of Servings: 6

 

I leave out the stevia

Hahahaha, you sound like me!  I checked it out online and I think I am going to get it.  The Big A has it for $80, and bed bath and beyond has it for $99 and I can use my 20% off coupon to make it the same price, so I am going to try to make it out to a BB&B this week.  I like that it folds out to a griddle, I don't have a griddle and have always wanted one but didn't want to sacrifice space.  The george foreman ones keep crapping out on me and cuisinart has a good warranty so if I use it to death maybe I won't have to buy a brand new one in a year.

 

Today for dinner I am making crock pot red beans.  Gotta go help out a family member so will get home for a late dinner and won't have to mess with it, just eat!

I feel like I've had mine maybe a year or so, so I can't speak for how well it lasts. But I've always been happy with the brand which was why I was confident buying it. The George Foreman with the removable plates is so much more expensive and I refused to waste money on one without them because they're a pita to clean. Been there, done that, never again.

 

Tonight will be baked chicken of some kind and some sort of veggie something or other with it.

Bummer! The only thing I have had burn in the crockpot was some potatoes - but just a little on the bottom. The rest were fine.

Last night we had penne with Newmans Own Marinara. I baked it in the oven with moz, Asiago, parm and Romano on top until brown. Yum!

Last night we had pork tenderloin and onions, sauteed zucchini noodles, applesauce and these teeny tiny golden potatoes

(i have never seen them that small before--they were at the produce stand we have down here--really, they look like marbles  :D )

anyhoo... I just sauteed them in butter and some white truffle oil for a few minutes and they were very yummy .

 

Not sure what's happening tonight as we are going to the ball game and I may want to just have pizza when we get home.

I smell all that food at the games and sometimes, I get a little miffed that I can't have it,

but then I think, meh...it's all fried crap anyway

and my thighs do not need it. -_- he he he

Happy Friday Dinner Peeps :wub:

 

Sounds like a splendid Friday. B)

 

Things are going well for business. So I went today and bought myself a sewing machine so I can stop using my MIL's. I don't like hers and I also hate being restricted on the time of day I can sew since I'm such a night owl. Now I can sew when it suits me, even if that means it's "the middle of the night" for other people. Also stopped by the mall today to see about a kiosk there. By next summer I should be ready to do a three month stint there as long as I'm healthy enough. ^_^ For now I'll settle for being ready for the local farmers markets.

 

Dinner will be chicken quesadillas and maybe some original Star Trek all cuddled up with my husband. :wub:

Chicken tacos, mexican brown rice, refried beans. Birthday dinner for my boyfriend. I also made a Blueberry "Pancake" cake with maple butter cream frosting. I used the yellow King Arthur mix and doctored it up with cinnamon, nutmeg and blueberries. Dusted it with cinnamon sugar.

Unfortunately they were frozen and thawed blueberries and not fresh. Blueberries are just so expensive!! These taste just as good! Thanks Lisa!! I had a lot of fun baking this. Baking was a passion before diagnosis and the gluten free baking intimidated me. But I think I am starting to get excited about it again!

Not to worry...took me a while....perhaps longer than you...but my gluten-free birthday cakes are just as tasty (many times even better) as the gluten-filled ones and the love of decorating to make a gift of those cakes...well...that is the same with or without gluten ;)

Looks great! And blueberries are one of the few fruits that thaw and taste like new!

OOH babycakes--liquid dinner... ;)  whoohooo! and thanks again for the package today. I heart you, sweet girl.

By next summer I should be ready to do a three month stint there as long as I'm healthy enough. ^_^ For now I'll settle for being ready for the local farmers markets.

 

 

 

OOH babycakes!! can't tell you how thrilled I am for your new venture. whoohoo!! You can be all "SHOW me the money!! " PS Did you get what I sent yet? (or do we have to hunt down the mailman?) ...chuckling...

OOH babycakes!! you're cooking and baking and feeling  fine. whoohooo Jamie girl. I'd like a  piece of that, please. I'm droolng on the laptop here.

 

Mmmmmmm cake....

 

"What she said!!" .......mmmmmm cake....

 

Going to be an interesting week here., Painter comes back Tuesday to fix the crappy paint jobs in the guest bathroom  and master bath, too.....just before our friends come in on Wednesday..How fast can it dry and how soon can I hang a few pictures and make it look pretty one wonders...the answer better be "24 hours" :lol: If not, so be it.

As it is, we're dining off cardboard boxes as my table and chairs have not come in. ah well. c'est la vie. Good thing I am a good cook and we're good friends and they don't give a crap about such things. 

 

Dinner tonight is looking like burgers and fries (I know, not exactly healthy, but it's quick....)

I've got a boatload of shopping to do...meat market, liquor store, produce stand, Italian specialty mart, the fish market and the crazy cool place with all the G F stuff on the shelves and in the freezer....oh boy. I LOVE to cook for my peeps!!

 

smiley-cooking-emoticon.gif whoohoo!

    • This easy to make bean dip makes a great addisiton to any good munching session. Goes gret with salsa and gluten-free beer. View the full article
    • Good grief!  :o. I'm so sorry, I wish there was something I could do or say to help you.  I agree with the NP, your primary needs to be requesting copies of your records from the other doctors, as well as the records and lab reports from your hospital stay.  They are supposed to work together as a team, not just individually out in left field.
    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep.
