Crock Pot Creme Brûlée is a winner...hardest part was finding good dish to use in the crock...since I did that last week, this morning was easy.

Will cook a tad longer next round....just hard to be specific with time because of variations in crock size, quantity of water, etc..but everyone enjoyed even though I thought it should have been more firm. I'll be doing again next weekend for the kidlets..they arrive Thursday .... Last I heard ;)

We had a super fun day grilling today!

 

What really shocked and surprised me though, is that apparently my inlaws decided that the gluten-free people needed a new grill. When we showed up for the cook out, they had actually purchased, taken out of the box, and assembled a 2nd smaller grill that is only for gluten-free items. Pretty shocking as I certainly didn't expect them to buy a whole new grill, we would've just put foil on the old one.

But, what can I say, my in laws are awesome.  :wub:  My MIL told me that she covered the cutting board with aluminum foil before cutting the fruit for the kebabs, so that she wasn't cutting directly on the surface. I thanked her for her smart improvisation and then immediately gifted her with a flexible cutting board for next time so that she doesn't have to use foil on her cutting board.  :)

PS...on the Crock Pot Creme Brulee

 

Here is the recipe Irish found a few weeks back:

 

http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2008/02/crockpot-crme-brulee-recipe.html

 

Had a thought after I posted last night...if you can get custard cups to fit in your crock...that would be a far superior way to serve so as everyone gets to crack through their own carmelized top :)

Yummy....

Upon more thought...I will be using the crock pot brûlée recipe without the crock as I need to make eight custard cups next time.

Tonight is steak and trater tot cheesy casserole of some sort...along with a mix of roasted veggies for me.

I had to go look up a pizzookie. Then I immediately checked for BJs in my area. Not a single one in Utah. <_<

 

Last week my husband was sick with a cold. He got better and I felt fine so I thought I escaped. Until yesterday afternoon when it finally hit me. Who gets colds in JUNE!!! This is stupid. I don't know what he'll eat for dinner, but whatever it is, I won't be cooking. :P I think I'll mope around the house a little and lay in bed and read and nap. I'm sure he'll survive a night without dinner ready when he gets home since this is totally his fault. :lol:

Well then you need to come visit me, hahaha!

 

Tonight I am going to go simple and make up for calories yesterday... just grilled pork chops with green beans and carrots.  

 

Last night I was outside hosing something off around dusk, and got bit up UNDER MY UNDIES by something.  I am so itchy.  That is what I get for not using bug spray!

I can't use bug spray....I've got citronella candle by the pool and on my patio...hubs hates...oh well ;)

Ps...I've found those really pesky/weird placed bites come from bath/shower time or my favorite...I stick one leg out from under the covers to regulate my sleep temp and darned if I don't get bit on the exposed leg!

I don't like to use bug spray and a lot of body stuff irritates me... I should go pick up a big citronella candle to have when I need it!  Too bad we don't yet have personal robotic bug zappers that seek and destroy for you.

I like the ones in the cute pails -- I think they are made by cutter...Target and Walmart carry.  I keep the lid to snuff it without having to deal with the smoke...another issue for me ;)

Having lived in the remote countryside for 16 years, I can testify: bugs will try to find their way into your panties no matter what you try to do to deter them...(much like randy frat boys.) You can keep swatting them away, but they keep coming around.....

 

The best way to repel them is to not shower or put anything on (lotion etc.) before going outside to garden or whatever. Stinky = no interest.

(much like randy frat boys)   ^_^ 

 

Looks like some of my menu has to be changed. Too many high histamime foods are biting me on the butt.... (i.e. all my favorites are a problem lately...darn it)  Nothing says fun like lip and scalp blisters, headaches, fatigue, wonky bowels, joint and muscle pain, heart palps and trouble breathing.

What's with the elephant sitting on my chest--oh that's right--it's just food I ate. 

Goodbye  tomatoes! farewell my beloved gouda and cheddar, sayonara asian food with soy sauce,

caio shellfish and beans. See you in a few weeks! 

 

I just love celiac and its tag-alongs. 

 

Tonight: grilled filets, potatoes and corn. (see ya in a month, dear beans and greens) sonava&^%$!

 

Still laughing, no matter what.  B) I'm cool.

In Minnesota, where the skeeters are wicked thick, there is an old way to keep them at bay.  Dryer sheets!  Rub them on your clothing, put them in your pockets, around your collar, sticking out of your shoes...wherever.  I have done this and it works for me.

 

Or, you could grow citronella in pots and stuff those in your pockets..... :lol:

 

For dinner tonight.....dunno, I'm still drinking coffee.

Yep, next time I go outside I am going to light a giant citronella candle and let it diffuse before I go out, not wash my private parts, and stuff my self with dryer sheets.... LOLOL

 

Today I am going to make crock pot red beans with a little bacon to flavor them.  Will probably make some corn muffins to go with them, I use the KAF baking mix recipe.  And maybe some spinach for me on the side... my hubby won't touch spinach with a ten foot pole with two gloves over it.

yeah, bug spray hates my skin, too - we do the dryer sheet thing.  also, they are great for inside the tent when one is camping:  just throw a bunch around and in the corners of the tent.  (and under the bed - yup, that's right, i made him get me a bed so the air mattress isn't touching the ground.  if the bugs want to make a meal of me, they're gonna hafta earn it!!!)   :D

 

hubs is in a 'turned down' truck this week (and last) so, he is waaaaaaaaaaaayyyyy slow and off schedule.  he actually left out yesterday to get loaded in michigan today, which he never does.  i am eating everything i didn't pack for him to take with him lolz.  it's 72 hr d.o.t., so he is making sure his log sheets are' extra special'.

 

the other night i put craisins and sliced almonds in the bullet and brushed honey on chicken & coated with cranberry almonds.  it was a pretty good combination :)  roasted taters & zucchini.

 

nonni's shrimp is what's for lunch - it's spicy & sweet & lemony & cajunish and i eat it with bread.

 

OMGOSH you guys - i breaded & fried goat cheese and ate it with honey.  it is my new favorite thing.  it's easy and filling and, well, YUMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!

 

all this talk about kfg making me want to crock out  ;)

 

(ruth - my mil is still offering me cake on a regular basis.  you *did* hit the mil lottery :D)

I thought it might be fun if we had a thread where we shared what we're cooking up for dinner:) I am not an experienced cook so coming up with gluten free menus for me and my boyfriend feels like a challenge. It's also weird since I only started eating meat since my diagnosis, so I have 0 experience preparing meat.

Tonight I'm going to try that Tinkyada spiral pasta with some gluten-free pasta sauce and gluten-free meatballs I got from TJ's.

what a great idea! I am having chicken,brown rice pasta and squash. Is Tj's like Fresh Market?

Jaws is playing at the son's theater tonight...they show old movies one a week...saw it the first time when I was eight in upstate New York .... Remembering not wanting to come home because that meant getting back in the water!!!!

So dinner is simple spaghetti for the men. Broth with some meat and veggies for me...guess that would make it soup? A bit tired today ;)

We were supposed to eat a pork roast for dinner, but it didn't thaw enough. <_< So we had burgers and fries because that's what my husband told me he wanted.

 

I was goofing off online because that's what I do when I discovered this evening that Grand Theft Auto IV has a mod that lets you play AS A GIRAFFE!!! Now, I've never been a fan of the GTA series of games and never had an interest in playing any of them. Until now. Suddenly my attitude has changed to "shut up and take my money!" except I'm waiting for it to be on sale during the summer sale. The waiting may kill me! You can ride a motorcycle, drive a convertible and use a rocket launcher. As a giraffe. I'm already giddy with excitement. :D

Last night I made a roasted pork sirloin with an herb spice rub recipe I got off of allrecipes.com. Served with brown rice and broccoli. I'll be eating it again for a few days.

    • I think the idea of grinding your own at home stems from the thought that flavored coffees might be ground on the same machines.  The grinders in the grocery are not cleaned between uses.  However, I have not found a flavored coffee bean that had gluten, so it's probably not a real concern.  For coffee that comes from a factory ground, I wouldn't worry at all.   Machines would be cleaned between flavors and nothing but coffee could be made on the machines or even in the same building ( everything made would taste/ smell like coffee). if you still have doubts - I went to the International Celiac Disease Symposium a few years back.  This is held every few years in different countries for medical professionals that study and treat Celiac.  They present research, etc.  All food served was gluten-free.  We drank a lot of plain, already ground, coffee!  A lot!   Coffee is not on any lists as a gluten containing food.  Talking legitimate organizations - not some blogger or pseudo- science website.   After all this, if you still doubt that coffee is gluten free...... Then don't drink it!  It leaves more for me!    
    • To answer some of your questions.... Non celiac gluten sensitivity does not cause any damage to the small intestine so that is not the source of the "little holes or bumps".  You need to get her records including the report of the endoscopy to see exactly what it says as well as the pathology report of the biopsies. You should always get medical records anyway & keep a copy for yourself. How many biopsies did he take? There should be a minimum of 4, ideally 6. The small intestine is very vast even in a small child. An adults is the size of a tennis court! That's a whole lot of territory so biopsies can miss damage especially when enough of them are not taken! She has 2 positives on the serum panel. This crap about "weak" positives should be thrown out of the nomenclature! A positive is a positive, weak or not! Her DgP IGG is way over the range and extremely telling. As far as my knowledge goes, there is nothing else that causes a positive DgP IGG other than celiac disease. False positives are really rare and to have 2 false positives would be astronomically rare! You are right & smart that she really does need an official diagnosis! IMHO, keep her on gluten for right now. Get a second opinion pronto & I believe you'll be able to get her a dx based on the 4 out of 5 rule if nothing else. I wouldn't think it's going to take more than a month to get to see another doc for a second opinion. Then you can take her off gluten. Kids heal up really fast, way faster than us old geezers! I'm sure as others  wake up & get on their computers they will be along to voice their knowledge. I am in the eastern time zone & rise before the birds so I was on here early. Hang in there mom! You're doing the right thing!
    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
