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.

If you make it with Italian sausage and a pizza cheese blend it's really good too. You can even add a little diced pepperoni or cut some up to add to it when you do that. I recommend adding a bit of Italian seasoning when you do this too. Don't ask how much, I just eyeball things around here.

I saw someone else say this recently so I'm not the only one but I call those nights "chopped" nights. Check the fridge and throw whatever is in there in supper. It was actually watching lots of that show that made me more adventurous in the kitchen. I'm never afraid to try new things now and I'm not afraid to fail anymore. What's the worst case scenario? Ordering a pizza if it truly sucks? Oh the horror! :lol:

It is good to keep a frozen pizza on hand when you are being adventurous in the kitchen... LOL

 

I have been so busy, I ate frozen pizza twice this week.  Not a slimming diet, for sure... LOL

Last night we tried the "Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie" only I used Mamwich with the hamburger meat, it was "Ok".   I will admit i was not sure if the top would come out more bread like or quiche like so I knew this was a risk.     I wouldn't make it again with Mamwhich but will be trying it from the original recipte soom.

 

I also made the Cinnamon Crumb Cake from the King Arthur baking mix box it was awesome!

That Manwich might be too wet.  You might like to make it the "real" way but add some taco spices to the meat.  Add taco sauce after its cooked.   Hub liked our regular one with taco sauce as left-overs.  It is a pretty mild flavor as written in the recipe.

 

Last night we had some grilled chicken tenders that I  marinated in lime juice, garlic and ginger.  Can't marinate more than 15 minutes on these little pieces or it will only taste like lime.  Then had some Lundberg mixed rice and green beans. A nice Chardonny.  A little vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce.

I made a few recipes this weekend to try and get out of the food rut I've been in. I made a recipe from Against the Grain cook book this weekend. It was the slow cooker beef chili recipe. I thought it tasted good however the sauce reminded me of a mole sauce. So with a few tweaks and change to turkey breast I am going to turn it into one next time!

 

I also tried my hand at Arepas this weekend. I think I over cooked them because when I sliced them through when I thought they should be done the knife had some doughy residue on it. But I think that is what is supposed to happen?! Can someone advise? They were edible but not as I remember having at Pica Pica (in Napa). I saved them however to eat with my chili and they work well as like a corn bread disc. LOL

 

I made the ATG slow cooker orange sesame chicken... I over cooked it and burned the sauce. My crock pot only has 4 settings (2 low heat, 2 high heat). I think I need to invest in a new one. Anyone have recommendations? I usually only cook for 2 people but do entertain for Thanksgiving.

I would love crock pot recommendations as well. Mine has only low or high. We use it so much when the kids are in sports and I'd love a good one with a keep warm setting.

Tonight we are having baked chicken parmesan, green beans and garlic bread.

Karen - it didn't get mushy or anything, which did surprise me, but because the manwich is wet the egg mixture didn't "flow" between everything it really sat on top more like a sheppard's pie.   And of course it cooked more souffle like which was only "ok" on a manwich.   We will be sure to try it closer to the original recipe next time, I am sure we will like it better.

I made a Thai red curry tonight from the cook book Artisanal Gluten Free. I would recommend to add green peas, snap peas, carrots and fresh basil (fresh basil as a MUST - add at the end of the recipe).  I had a favorite dish at a Thai restaurant in Davis and have CRAVED it for a year now. I can now say my home recipe is 99.9% similar and my taste buds cannot decipher the difference. I am so HAPPY!!! :D  :D  :D

Curry is really good! I made a red curry last night with coconut milk and Thai Kitchen red curry paste. (and some honey and a little soy sauce) For veggies, I used onions, bok choy, and tomatoes. For protein, I put in baked tofu. I served it with plain white basmati rice. My MIL was visiting and stayed over for dinner and it was a hit with her and the kids.  :)

Broiled zuchini?  Sounds good - what do you put on it?

I cut one in half the long way, lightly spritz with olive oil and add some Parmesan cheese.  I bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or so and then finish under the broiler to brown the cheese.  It's very good and juicy when done.  I love zucchini!! You could add some spices, pepper, garlic, etc. if you wanted too. I've done a variety of things but this is my go to way to prepare it.

Tonight I was inspired by something I picked up at the grocery store meat counter... going to make steak fingers (fried strips of tenderized breaded cube steak for those unfamiliar) with some mini potatoes and something like peas on the side.  Gonna make some white gravy, too, to dip them in or it just wouldn't be right.  Yummm

Come to texas and I will feed you!  LOL... for something I made on a whim, turned out real good.  Hubs thinks its hilarious when I eat gravy by itself, but I very rarely make it.

It would be fun to visit some other Celiac's households... But Texas is kinda far for a quick trip! ;)

 

Today we are having beef tacos. I baked some lemon poppy seed muffins for my boyfriend to take with him to work for breakfast. He will still buy the glutenous muffins from the grocery store and just bag them immediately and store them separate from our other food. But he didn't feel up to making a trip to the store and I felt like baking so it was a win/win. I glazed them, too. Turned out pretty good.

last night we had a mexican (chuck it together lolz) casserole - i am digging the tortillaland fresh corn tortillas.  they say to just 'dry fry' them, but frying them in oil is soooo much better.  so, tortillas for the 'crust', refried beans, chicken, salsa, cheese, ta daaaa!  and we had lettuce, sour cream & avocado :) on the side.

    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
