Walk in, ask if anyone needs gluten-free menu before they ask how many are in our party.  They have 2 kitchens, one for gluten-free.  The waitress brought out my daughter's food first, the gluten stuff, said she would be right back with mine after she WASHED HER HANDS, brought mine out, different colored plate with a toothpick thing in that said Gluten Free on it.  They had a Parmesan bread, gluten-free, that was really good too!!  She said if her boss saw her bringing out regular food and gluten-free food together they are fired on the spot--same if she didn't wash her hands between serving.  The food was fantastic too!!  The sister of the owner is Celiac and she added the second kitchen when her sister was diagnosed.  I asked if there were plans to franchise in the future :D

This sounds awesome. We have a small pizza chain in northern Utah that has double kitchens. And their pizza is freakin awesome! B) I gotta get there soon, they have a summer specialty pizza called a bacon-berry pie that I've got to try. Strawberry-balsamic sauce, chicken, bacon, mozz, red onions and feta then topped with fresh strawberries and cilantro after they bake it. I think I need to keep napkins at my desk, I almost drooled on myself thinking about it. ^_^

 

Our weather this week is awesome. In the 70s yesterday and today and rain all week. :D I'm skipping any real cooking tonight and making one of those cook it in the bag you buy it in pork tenderloins. I super love the easy clean up. I think I have enough purple beans ready to pick them and have those with it. Maybe a salad or something if I go to the store, I do need to return a book to the library today which is right across the street.

2nd recipe.  I think the right amount of fresh spinach is 2 layers- just enough to overlap but not more than 2 leaves thick.  the top layer no spinach.

Probably the same.  Anything with lasagna noodles only needs about 4 hours.  Maybe mine says 7 - not sure. I have  a good lasagna one, too.  I use half burger and half Ital turkey sausage.  My food always cooks faster than the 365 Cookbook says.

 

This is the one I use, except cook for 4 hours:

This is the lasagna I used with Tinyada noodles.  I cooked the Ital sausage in a pan and added the marinara.  Cooked the hamburger in the microwave and drained.  Then added it to the sausage & marinar.   Didn't worry about 20 minutes simmering.  Used 3 layers of noodles.  Left-overs are fab!

The lasagna is very pizza like. No crispy crust, but the same flavors - cheese, marinara, sausage, etc.

Yesterday I found the How Can It Be Gluten Free cookbook on the porch. I'm SO excited! I can't wait to try making bread. But I have that chicken in the freezer for fried chicken too. I'm thinking I need to try that recipe really soon. And cookies and cakes and pie. I feel like I gained 10 pounds browsing the book.

I recommend the carrot cake recipe in that book.

Ps...forgot to add a step.

I always sear meat before throwing in the crock...really high temp in fry pan for just a few seconds on both sides for chops, all sides for roasts.

Crock 'lasagna' up mañana ... Have you used reg noodles in the crock...was thinking of using Sam mills mini lasagna noodles layered instead of lasagna noodle...they should get done in three hours too I'd guess.

I have only used lasagna noodles this way. Haven't seen mini lasagna noodles. I have made minestrone in the crockpot. Then I add the noodles the last half hour.

Hubs is making something in the crock today.  I can't move off the couch because my muscles are screaming.  Might have been all the furniture moving I did  :o

Grilling chicken wings and zucchini tonight with salad.

Prepping food for camping this weekend at the beach. Tomorrow afternoon, I will be reading and drinking a glass of wine with my old faithful lab lying next to me in the sand! Can not wait!

lolz - in my mind, you are hopping on a scooter and shimmying-shaking to the store :D

 

the other night i made:

 

parmesan cheese sauce with shredded carrot, zucchini & garlic and i put it over ravioli <if there was ever celiac jail, they would be traded like cigarettes)  no meat, therefore unacceptable to the hubs so i made it when he wasn't home.  it turned out really good.  grating parmesan from a wedge vs pre-grated - i'm becoming a fan of grating it  :)  i like the flavor better.  i can still freeze it, too.

 

last night we made:

 

nonni's shrimp with french bread & spinach salad <lolz *now* i find out it's actual recipe name is 'cajun shrimp' haha - nonni is italian.  i mean she is a jersey guido, through & through.  just cracks me up :D

Hubs said there's meat and potatoes so far in the crock...yumms

They are more like wide egg noodles with a curly edge...we use them in everything that we used to use wide noodles for....going to give it a try.

Thanks :)

My husband is bringing home steak for dinner. I do have plans for "soon" though. One of the local stores just started carrying a frozen gluten free orange chicken without any super weird ingredients. I'm pretty excited. I think tomorrow or Saturday I'm going to stop in and pick it up instead of daydreaming about it. It'll probably turn into one of those things we don't buy much because I make really awesome orange chicken already. I just want to try it because it exists.

 

I'm also super excited because my tomato plants finally started having tomatoes on them. Yay! Soon I'll be able to have my purple tomato, purple basil caprese salad. ^_^

Yay for purple tomatoes!

We had nachos and refried black beans.

I can't remember the last time we had nachos for supper. It's a brilliant idea that will get me in front of the TV and my beloved Doctor sooner. I should try it Saturday night when I know I won't feel up to cooking.

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
