The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

9,867 posts in this topic

Tonight was supposed to be a nice salad with garden fresh cucumbers and tomatoes (courtesy of one of my customers), and croutons made from Udi's hamburger buns (had to use them somehow since I didn't like them as buns). Followed by some baked chicken with gluten free pasta, sautéed red and green bell peppers, sautéed onions, red apples (don't give me looks, it adds a nice sweet crunch to it), in an oil based sauce.......but I had no power for over 6 hours today so I had to trash most of my groceries and couldn't even cook, so instead I went out and got a grilled chicken Cesar salad. :-/

The apples sound delicious! I think I'm in love! I'll date you!

Does it matter than I am your mother's age and married? Lol

Haha. Not really looking for my moms age...or married since I've been cheated on myself waaaay too many times. (And they say being a respectful gentleman is good is what my relationship history makes me say there).

But I use red delicious apples, chop them up finely, and garnish the finished product with them. First time I did it was catering a friend's wedding with a right budget and of course she wanted it to look at least semi-classy. It was a pretty big hit.

I make this stuff that I put on toasted gluten-free baguettes - it's lightly cooked apples and onions and a drizzle of balsamic reduction. Apples and onions go great together.

And you know I'm just kidding about dating you.... I really might just adopt you. Your chore will be cooking! You may call me Mom! Lol

I still have yet to find good gluten free bread products though.

I know you were kidding. Adoption, does that mean I also get back-pay on helping with college?

For this type of thing - where the bread is second to the topping - Udis baguettes or Shars are good. You slice and toast first. Then top.

College....hmmmmm... That's tricky. Let me think on that.

I may have to get some Udi's baguettes then. I've never seen Shars anywhere.

Schar are sold off the shelf and you bake them for a few minutes before you do anything else. We had Udis baguette at a restaurant the other night made into garlic cheese bread and it was great!

Boudin??h.

It's a delicious rice dressing (meat, rice, liver, heavy seasoning) wrapped in a casing. (Like sausage) Not too sure what its made of now. Traditionally it was wrapped in the intestines of a pig... Yuck! Then it's smoked. Pure deliciousness!

Glad you found one! I have not found that many sausages in the US have gluten but I haven't looked for boudin.

The Manda brand is gluten free. I haven't had trouble with sausage neither, but finding this was quite exciting!

Boudin??

 

Yesterday we got a shkar( you know the ones who make those rolls) brand pizza and it was sooo delicious. The perfect cheese to sauce ratio. My bf cooked it on the oven rack so it was nice and crispy too. He sauteed some onions and green peppers for the top and chopped some black olives. totally hit the spot since my grandmother kept asking if we wanted pizza- all day while we were visiting.

 

Tonight I took some chicken, bell pepper, jalepeno, garlic carrot and onion and cooked that up in the wok and added some ginger and curry powder (badia is certified gluten free!) and made like a curry fried rice on the deck.. it was delicious. ate wayyyy too much.

 

 

Just curious, I have read many of your posts and you seem to be having many issues with your gut.  You said you "pound the Pepto"  and your sick and on the couch recovering alot.  Do you think it might be the foods your eating?  If I ate what you had last night I would be sick as a dog all the time too.  If your gut does not heal, you will stay sick and most likely will not absorb the nutrition from your food.  

 

Just "Food" for thought.

If you can't find the baguettes, you can order them from Amazon.  I like the baguettes, but the the bread not so much!!!  As in, it's AWFUL imho.

Last night was our last night in Colorado - we went to Vinnys in Frisco. So good with food issues! I had a great poached pear, chèvre and candied pecan salad, beef tenderloin in a nice sauce ( they cook bones for days to make the sauce & no thickener needed) on polenta.

Tonight we got home late and ordered pizza from Minsky's.

I have eaten out 4 times in the last 6 days and did not have a problem. It helps to pick places that are specifically trained or have a knowledgeable chef.

Karen, where in Colorado are you?  I'm in or around Denver once a year, and sometimes around Beaver Creek.  I'd love to know where you are eating.

I have kids at CSU in FT Collins. We were up in Dillon.

Vinny's is in Frisco. The trout special used gluten-free bread crumbs!

We eat at Beau Jo's pizza. They have locations around Colorado.

http://www.beaujos.com

Then there are the usual places like PF Chang's, Brazilian steakhouses, Spoons outback, etc.

Colorado has a lot of places with gluten-free. I haven't tried them all but my son notices that some places do a nice job with gluten-free - fresh ingredients for the gluten-free burger, etc and some not so good.

I haven't eaten at any in Beaver Creek but I have heard some of the more expensive places do a great job gluten-free. I don't remember the name, but one place has a son with Celiac. But it is probably $40 a person without drinks so I haven't tried it.

Adding things - spoons not Soupers

Highly recommended by Celiacs but been too busy when I have tried to go.

Tonight I have cut up pork tenderloin that I usually make stir fry with, but I think I am going to do like a beef tips and gravy with it.  Just want something different and more comfort food-ish.  I think I have been eating stir fry too much lately, haha.

I'm not liking amazon much right now. My office (I work for the US Postal Service) began the "same day amazon delivery" today. Ugh! Makes my job even more fun. :-/

We stopped at the store today and I got a chicken for $3! Yay! I roasted it, filled the house with smoke (lol) and enjoyed a lovely dinner. I'm really enjoying my husband having the same two days off every week, it's positively great. Stayed up way too late last night, enjoying a lot of tv last night and tonight and some ice cream. Had some errands today to go pick up a bag of buckwheat, go to the bank and such. It's just plain too hot for me these days though. Ick. A person could melt out there.

Although...if one does utilize the subscribe and save feature....one saves not only on gluten-free pasta and cereal....but many supplements, household items and more.

Got a london broil out of my freezer to thaw for tomorrow. Tonight I'm in the mood for mac & cheese. Nothing I can really thaw quickly so I think we'll just do burgers. Not particularly exciting, but a decent summer supper. I have a container of baby spring mix greens for salads and maybe I'll get out the deep fryer for fries for my husband since he doesn't like homemade mac & cheese. (something seriously wrong with that man.) I owe him though, I dragged him to Joann's today. I was like a kid in a candy store, I picked out 7 or 8 new flannels and fabric for a reversible, two colored basket liner. He wasn't excited to be there at all. :lol:

 

Tonight we're going to take a walk around the neighborhood around sunset and go look at people's gardens. We've seen a few in passing that have interesting things we'd like to look at to see if they are things we'd like to add to our garden next year. The walk will probably call for some of our dark chocolate covered fruit pops to bring along since it doesn't entirely cool off til around 10.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • 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.
