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.

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.

    • Hi, I am 20yrs old and have had this weird stomach pains on and off for 2 years. They started by just having pains on my left side when I sucked in or pressed on my tummy. In the last 3 months they have gotten really bad, with a lot of bloating and used to occur almost every time just before bed I would get bloated, and feel constipated like I just needed a hole in my stomach to release the pressure. I have had tests for lactose and gluten, and they both came back negative. I was not having any gluten at the time of the test which I have read can affect the results. I had little help from my doctor so I went gluten free which was working really well and I would only have pain once every two weeks. The last three nights were awful, I was in so much pain I struggled to walk, and again they would go away in the morning. I looked like I was pregnant and relief was only through passing wind (sorry for the detail!). I was wondering if anyone has had similar experience, or could point me in a direction to help me. The weird thing is that I did have gluten one day and that didn't seem to affect me at all. Then I will have something like vegemite (I'm from Australia) and this is the only thing that I can think off that would set me off (it contains wheat). So I don't really know what do to or where to go, these stomach pains have been heightened since I had a horrible gastro for a week, and went to hospital. Could it be possible that my gut lining has been damaged? I have become really stuck on what I should do next, as tonight my stomach is fine, I actually feel hungry (previously I have felt super full as a result of being bloated), so I have no idea what triggered that horrible episodes before I went to bed for the last few nights. Any thoughts or suggestions would be amazing, thank heaps
    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
