So just went to Kroger cuz I'm on the verge of broke til payday Friday (tow trucks and starters are expensive) and got enough food to get through til Friday. Looking at some pizza, I saw Diaya brand for the first time ever, and it was on close out for $5.29 a piece (cheaper than Udi's and bigger). Sad thing is I think close out means it's going away. :-( So dinner tonight is some Diaya gluten-free pizza! Hopefully they still have some left friday if it's good.

So I made the Daiya pizza, it says 3 servings on the box....my plan was half tonight and take the other half to work tomorrow for lunch. I don't know what happened to the second half, it just disappeared off my plate.

Tonight we're having reruns of the london broil. I'll have to find something to go with it but I'm sure something will come up. Last night I found a dozen or so purple string beans ready in the garden to have with my dinner. It was the first thing out of the garden this year that wasn't mint, which doesn't count. They were delicious. ^_^

 

Today I'm lightening my hair for summer. I'm pretty excited. I have lots of work to do, but I think I may also take a few hours out to give myself a mani. It's just that kind of day. And I have a pretty new pink skirt from a thrift shop I'm wearing tomorrow so I think pink nails will be perfect. B)

Yesterday was gnocchi with just butter and parm, with green beans on the side.  Tonight will be grilled pork tenderloin with roasted potatoes and carrots.  Tomorrow I am making nachos!  I have two teenagers coming to visit me next week so I will have to make more kid friendly food.  Nice to have someone to bake for, though.

If you're making nachos and baking, I'm coming to visit too!

Tonight I had a salad (loooong day at work, so I went out to eat instead of thinking about cooking). After dinner, I mosied on over to Barnes & Noble....big mistake! I found quite a few gluten free cook books and ended up buying 1, and joining their members club. That first 20% off coupon I get I'm buying more. I finally have a cook book that is 100% gluten-free instead of trying to modify recipes. And it's got bread, tortillas, cakes, muffins, rolls, cookies, biscuits, etc (basically all the gluteny goods) in it, so now I get to go buy some baking stuff! (Yes, I'm a guy excited about baking, what about it?

You said you were already gonna be baking, plus I could use the tips on doing it gluten free style before trying to impress the ladies. (Or just 1 in particular)

true story :)  the hubs and i like to cook together (pretty sure he just wants to wield the big knife - saves him a trip to the e.r. if he keeps me away from big knives...)

 

i am still eating leftovers from my nj trip ALTHOUGH last night we made the southern holy grail:  friiiiiiiied chicken (buttermilk and all) it came out great.  french fries and cuke salad <first pick from our garden - just the one, and it was huge.  maybe it ate all the other ones.  the zucchini and yellow squash plants have grown huge, but still no squashes....  unlessss.  that evil cuke...   <_<

I just bought chicken today to make fried chicken! :D I'm freezing it though and it'll be a little while til I decide to make it. I also got a new waffle iron. My husband freaked a little at the $30 price tag, but it's a nice one and makes 4 at a time so I won't be in the kitchen all freaking day making waffles every time I throw a batch together. We also want to just make a bunch and freeze them to use as toaster waffles for breakfast.

 

Last night I made chuck tender steaks. I baked them and they were amazing. I made a little gravy from the sauce and some arepas to dip in the gravy. Yum! Tonight my husband wants spaghetti, so that's what we're having. I've given up always making penne pasta and being happy with it. We spring for Barilla now which isn't that expensive and it is great to finally have spaghetti noodles for spaghetti nights. I got some already ready already meatballs that I can just microwave so I don't have to make them. Although when I do make them I've started just using my mini muffin pan and making meat muffins instead of meatballs because it's so much easier.

HA!  My husband also likes to discourage my use of knives.  What did you bread your fried chicken with?  I use gluten-free bisquik and it turns out good, but there is always room to improve.

 

Tonight is grilled chicken, sweet potato fries, and green beans.

Everyone is all talking bout this good food, and I'm sitting here thinking "it would take too much energy to make just 1 serving of that". Maybe I'm just too lazy.

But any who, today I had some Diaya cheese pizza and added bell peppers, onions, and pepperoni. It was pretty good, but I'm looking forward to havin the time whenever I get another day off work where I don't have 1,000 other things to do to make some pizza from scratch!

I know what you mean. Sometimes it's just too much effort for 1 or 2 people when you have other things going on. Maybe on a day off? Or cook things that make good left overs?

I don't remember what a day off is lately. Maybe I will be able to figure it out next Tuesday. I cook some things intending leftovers, but then they disappear somehow. :-/ Most leftovers would need a microwave to reheat well, and I don't have one of those.

I understand the difficulty cooking for one.  Cooking for just my husband and I gets difficult.  I use the freezer a lot... freeze half a can of tomato sauce, some shreds of cheese, some cut up chicken meat.  Some things freeze better than others but I already pay enough for food, so I continue to save things to keep those costs down :)  That is why I get excited to cook for a group!

I bought a convection toaster oven to replace my toaster.  It was only $10 more than a toaster so I thought, why not.  I'm really enjoying having that in my kitchen.  It was very hot here yesterday and I broiled pork chops in the toaster oven without heating up the kitchen with the main oven.  It's just the 2 of us so it had plenty of room to cook.  I could easily bake some meat and roast potatoes or something at the same time in there.  We have a great meat market at our grocery store so its easy to get 2 pork chops or 1/2 lb of hamburger or whatever so it makes cooking for 2 a lot easier!!

Omlettes tonight! With veggies, but we are fresh out of meat. Hes eating now and I will eat after our swim.

 

I found a way to step up my curry fried rice, because im obsessed. I cook my rice with coconut milk and it gives it that extra layer of flavor. Extra points, save some for later, cook it even more with more coconut milk and add sugar and add an egg yolk for coconut rice pudding. Make sure you do all that fancy tempering stuff too.

I put a little turkey in the freezer from a few weeks ago. We are having Bisquick turkey pot pie tonight. I add some potatoes to the original recipe. Yum.

Apparently Dr. Who is getting to my husband. We were going to have salmon but then he started making comments about fish and chips. So we stopped by the store, picked up some white fish and battered it to go with our fries. We had a 4 pack of apple beer to go with it. Perfect. B)

Today I was looking at urbanspoon trying to find a bakery near me that has gluten free bread, and I found a sandwich shop (lunch only) that has gluten free bread, and a cafe that said they have a gluten free menu. I decided to check out the cafe since I wanted something other than a salad and I didn't want to cook. They didn't have a gluten-free menu printed out, but the server checked with the manager....I knew there was a problem when the manager said "...Mac & cheese is gluten free, and .... Rice contain gluten." Ummmm....do what?? I ended up going with a salad since I was with a friend. :-/

What do you mean by " apple beer"? Hard cider?

It isn't beer, or alcoholic at all. I'm not sure why it's called apple beer, but it is. And it's delicious. http://www.applebeer.com/Default.aspx

I have never seen that! Looks great!

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
