Didn't I tell you my hubs shared his bug with me a few weeks ago? It's inevitable...we live with them. LOL

But when I made soup, at least I gave him a bowl of it too.  -_-

 

My trip to the produce stand yielded a treasure trove of things: pluots, tomatillos, eggplant, patty pan squash, cabbage and although it is too soon to bring one home just yet: pumpkins! 

 

Making grilled Meditteranean pork burgers tonight (damn, those are tasty things!) with a side of roasted patty pan squash.

 

Friday will be Green gazpacho with chili cumin shrimp 

 

Saturday will be Stuffed Cabbage rolls (Galumpkis as my Polish friends call them) in the KFG

 

Sunday Eggplant parmesan

 

Have a  good weekend everyone and.... let us never forget 9/11

 

P/S It's been a real joy talking & sharing with you guys. ;)  be good! Caio xxoo G

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Pluots/plumcots.  I have always loved plums, but since the plumcots have been widely available, for a pretty long season in my area, I am eating them all the time.  Perfect combination of both fruits.

 

Last night I made tacos with beans... tonight I am probably just going to whip up some grilled chicken and whatever veggies I have on hand.  I treated myself with chik fil a and fries for lunch so need to be good for dinner!

Tonight I had a big juicy beef burger on an Udi's bun with some crunchy tator tots. Such a naughty yet satisfying meal.  :D

Good for you! A lady needs the iron from the beef! ( that's how I rationalize it ). Lol

We had some smoked meat in the freezer and we made sandwiches with lots of BBQ sauce and some Ore Ida oven fries.

It was heaven. I wish I had the energy for more spontaneous meals like this but usually default to grilled chicken, rice and veggies. I need to invest in a weekend day organize crock pot freezer meals.

Sounds like I'm not the only one who likes to splurge on Ore Ida stuff. ;)

 

I took the kids out to Fazoli's for spaghetti and breadsticks to get their gluten quotient in for the day and I pretty much had to live on peaches, peanut butter, and apple slices until my shopping trip was finished. As my daughter put it, "Mama, the only thing that you can eat here is their apple juice."  :lol:

 

So when I got home, I splurged and cooked up some Ore Ida tater tots in the waffle iron. I also heated up some Beyond Meat chicken free strips, lightly cooked broccoli, and leftover basmati rice. Mmm! So tasty and filling.

 

I got a couple of chocolate splurges today. I got some Santa Cruz organic chocolate syrup (https://www.google.com/search?q=organic+gluten+free+chocolate+syrup&es_sm=93&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=cGISVLzSL4_5yQTx7IGoDg&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAg&biw=1920&bih=951#tbm=isch&q=santa+cruz+organic+gluten+free+chocolate+syrup&facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=z5by1MQfBO38sM%253A%3BTTtNzgDj0wTSEM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn6.bigcommerce.com%252Fs-cw1rp75%252Fproducts%252F2138%252Fimages%252F1834%252FSanta%2525252520Cruz%2525252520Organic%2525252520Chocolate%2525252520Syrup__63609.1405998728.386.513.jpg%253Fc%253D2%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.wholeandnatural.com%252Fsanta-cruz-organic-chocolate-syrup-15-5-oz%252F%3B150%3B300) and also bought a 4 pound bag of chocolate chips from GFS. There was no gluten ingredients and the only facility warning on there was for peanuts and treenuts or something like that.

 

I'm going to make some banana ice cream and serve it with the chocolate syrup. Yum!

I'm feeling slightly better. I'm managing to get out of bed a little at least, but I think I'm sticking to soup still for the day. Unfortunately this means making myself semi-presentable and dragging myself to the store or waiting til my husband comes home tonight to go for me but I'd rather just get my own. I've just been buying soup because I guess I'm lazy, and my husband doesn't like any of the type of soup I like so that's why I wasn't sharing. :P (Remember, he may be a grown man but acts like a toddler who thinks they're allergic to everything called a vegetable. :lol:)

 

Awesome news today though. His department manager transferred out of his department to try other things, the more departments you have experience in, the more likely you are to get higher in the management ranks at Walmart. He interviewed for the department she ended up getting, but we're perfectly happy for him to have been turned down for that. He got the department he's been working in since he started!  ^_^ We're both thrilled and excited. The only daunting thing is that both previous managers for his department worked from 6 to whenever. Oh God.... he'll have to leave for work at 5:30 in the morning. That's the less than exciting part, we're going to have to turn our schedules upside down and neither of us have ever been morning people. :unsure:

It's just me and the kids right now. Hubby is usually home on Fridays (works a 4 day work week) but he's off helping friends move.

 

The kids and I are having sauteed chicken free strips with veggies (cabbage, carrots, and broccoli) and rainbow quinoa. I tried out a new type of soy sauce and I really like it! It is San-J Tamari Lite. https://www.google.com/search?q=San-J+Tamari+Lite&es_sm=93&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=cEETVKPwMNe1yASu8YGgAQ&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAg&biw=1920&bih=951#facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=Zn9Hd5tZ_8lEmM%253A%3B5Xw66qoQeOkMbM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.san-j.com%252Fimages%252Fproducts%252Fmedium%252F28.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.san-j.com%252Fproduct_info.asp%253Fid%253D28%3B250%3B200

I'm making rotisserie chicken tonight.  I'll either make some Ore Ida hash browns or some baby yukon gold roasted potatoes.  I have always liked Ore Ida potatoes.  They are always in our freezer in some form or another. :D

I have a wicked craving for chile con carne so am making a big old pot of it.  Right now.  It will pair perfectly with bay-infused Jasmine rice and homemade garlic cheese biscuits.  This is our high-carb cheat night.  :P  Will probably make some sort of cucumber salad.

We used to live in a townhouse and the woman next to us was from India.  For whatever reason she liked to cook in the middle of the night and waking up at 3 am to overpowering Curry just is not a good thing...I can't even walk into an Indian restaurant any more.

last night we had chicken stew (sort of chicken n dumplins)  boneless chicken thighs, (bacon LOLZ), onion, celery, carrot, fresh herbs (i put them into a tea ball, that way the flavor goes in and i don't have all wilty herbs in the finished product) and gnocchi instead of the dumplins.  

 

i has a cold :(  so, that was pretty close to chicken soup.........

Beef veggie soup with a buttered Udi's dinner roll, with Christmas music in the background while my girls and I decorate for the fall. Yep, a good day indeed.

I made these! Very nice. A bit like the top of a muffin - slightly crunchy out side and muffiny inside. Next time I think I will replace the chips with chopped walnuts or pecans. I put a speck of vanilla in the glaze. I didn't put them in the fridge before baking.

Simple green salad with fresh Balkans feta cheese and local capers.  I am making a sort of Mediterranean vinaigrette.  This afternoon I made Parmesan and garlic biscuits which will go nicely with the salad.

Udi's dinner roll was yucky to say the least. Anyone have a favorite roll recipe? I see plenty recipes on Pinterest, but am not too saavy on gluten-free baking (mixing flours). I'm also tired of wasting money on prepackaged mixes or frozen items that aren't good. Any idea on where to start? I'm dying for a hot, soft roll... Drool...

The recipe for dinner rolls in the ATK book is easy and they are absolutely mouthwatering. I can not recommend enough getting that book, it isn't the only recipe in it that you'll be glad you have.

I am more of a stalker on this website and don't contribute much, but you guys are killing me with all the great foods you make.  I am going to have to be more adventerous!  

 

Last night we had Chili and I made Creme Brulee' in the Crockpot the day before and just melted the sugar last night before consuming...it was awesome!!!

Last night we had "Impossible Cheeseburger Pie" and a spinach and apple salad with pecans and a little lemony salad dressing I made.  You could add things like taco seasonings and serve with salsa but ...for some reason, we always like it just like it is.

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
