Some of you know of my quest to make a good large flour tortilla -- it has been over five years since my kids have had a decent sized burrito -- living in the land of Mexican Fast Food makes that beyond difficult.

 

The Quest is over!

 

Thanks to a recipe passed to me by another nonWE -- we now have safe gluten free (decent sized) burritos for the first time in over five years -- was wonderful to see everyone enjoy safe burritos -- I even ate one (potato and rice - tummy's a bit fussy but digestive enzymes should help).

I doubled the recipe and used larger frying pans / 1/2 cup batter for each instead of the recommended 1/3 cup -- they freeze well so will likely make more next time.
 
Have no idea what is for dinner -- perhaps Quesodillas with the works :wub:

 

 

Which rice flour did you use?  I am definitely going to try those!

I used Bob's Red Mill because it was what I had on hand -- it calls for fava bean (or rice or sorghum) -- think the potato starch is important though.

 

These were incredible to cook too -- I've made a lot of smaller "flour" tortillas -- usually I make gluten-free crepes -- but these were even easy to flip once the pans were right temp -- kinda like pancakes...the first one is rarely great -- but 2-11 were fabulous :)

We are having breakfast for dinner today. Pancakes and eggs and bacon flavored sausage. And because insomnia is awesome, the strawberry muffins I baked at 2:30 this morning. I also cleaned the bathroom floor, did the dishes and left no mess to clean up from my muffins. Apparently I'm awesome in the middle of the night. B)

I'm totally going to check out that tortilla recipe! I have a tortilla press and for a long time I have wanted to find a decent gluten-free flour tortilla recipe.

I'd make chili or some type of soup or stew. Snow? Now? That just seems like some sort of really messed up and inappropriate joke.

My kid at CSU said there was snow on the ground when he got up today. Not sure if they got more.

Rolled in from a camping weekend with a big group of friends near San Diego. Bought a Costco chicken on Friday and fixings prepared so that my family can heat and serve me! Winds are picking up. Expected to be a scorcher tomorrow!

Yosemite! Have fun, Lisa!

Happy Mother's Day!

Last night I made an awesome batch of pulled pork.  Was a 2.5lb pork ribeye roast, put in the crockpot with some BBQ sauce (I use Stubbs), gluten-free soy sauce, and some seasonings, cooked on high for 1.5 hours, then low for 7 hours.  Served over mashed potatoes and baked beans on the side.  Eating that for dinner again today, I may make sandwiches.

I am going to cook my first trout tonight. I've never cooked one before but an uncle is an avid fisher and catches far more than they can comfortably eat. So I told him as long as it doesn't have a head on it, we'll take them. (I do NOT do food that looks back at me, it creeps me the hell out.) I hope I still like it, I haven't had trout since I was a teen.

The trout was a hit. Yay!!! I can let my husband's uncle know to send more over if he has spares. I've never had to deal with a mostly whole fish before though, so that was a challenge. I suppose practice will make perfect.

 

Recently my husband said he wants to make a bbq ranch chicken pizza. Something we used to make all the time together. But, I've only bought pizza crusts up til now (from Venice Bakery) and we don't have any at the moment. So I picked up a Chebe mix and we're test driving it tonight as bread sticks with pasta and meatballs. If all goes well, we'll upgrade to our pizza probably in the immediate future.

 

I also had my first day of PT today. Got my evaluation and a list of home exercises. I'm so glad I got referred to someone who already knows what they need to about my disease. I'm sick of explaining to medical people exactly what is and isn't appropriate, so doing that with a physical therapist would just get incredibly awkward. Thursday she'll put me in the pool, and I'm feeling very hopeful about it all since she seems to know what she's doing with me and CRPS. The longer I can put off my first neck stabbing (stellate ganglion block) the happier I'll be. :)

Seriously, it hit 100 yesterday and we opted for cold Costco chicken, cold salad and cold cantaloupe. Tonight it is grilled pork tenderloin and more cold salad and fruit. It is expected to be even HOTTER! Ugh! What happened to "Gray May" (ocean-driven, cloudy-overcast that typically occurs until noon and keeps temperatures moderate)? I sure hope "June Gloom" happens, but this weather has been wacky!

Better brew more ice tea!

ooooh, ok, this is where I get to say "I told ya so" but I won't. LOL

You're going to feel better. I can hoestly say that the PT and MT was what got me out of extreme pain and back in the game. You have to make pain to get out of pain, though, sorry. It's part of the healing process and the retraining of the muscles, getting the nerves to stop misfiring.... just do as you're told, young lady.  ^_^

Crazy here too. high 80s -low 90s...but not humid, thank goodness. I am sure June-Sept. will be a different story. Stay cool! :)

 

I've got Karen's FKGadget going...chicken cacciatore. I'll probably serve it over brown rice with some watermelon for dessert.

Greetings from Sunny San Diego....seems a fire bug or terrorist has figured out a way to tax our emergency services to the breaking point.

 

Thankfully, the Santa Ana winds that were not predicted to calm for another few days have calmed a bit more than expected -- hopefully giving San Diego County and CalFire crews time to take control of the damage caused by this wackadoodle.

 

I'm in "BubbleGirl Mode" wet bandanas or N95 mask as needed, ice packs packing my torso while getting the house ready if we have unexpected guests from East County later in the day.

 

On the good news -- had an incredibly beautiful couple days in Yosemite and King's Canyon with my wonderful hubs -- just sad to drive home to multiple fires visible as we drove into San Diego County.

 

Dinner will be something simple as I'm not sure how many guests we may have between our family and my kids friends that are close to the evac areas.

    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler.
