I made Chili yesterday.  Shopped at a new grocery store that was mostly "organic" foods.  Chili was horrible!!  I have to go back to my not organic stuff :D.  The seasonings I bought were bland and just awful.  Good thing I made a small batch.  I doctored it up some after I tasted it so it's ok but just not the same.

 

Making roast beef and mashed potatoes today.

Well my apple pie turned out very well, I used mcintosh apples and this filling with the KAF gluten-free pie crust :http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/apple-pie-recipe.  Turned out excellent.  This week on the menu is breakfast for dinner, chicken stir fry with veggies, chicken broccoli alfredo, grilled chicken with roasted potatoes and green beans, and tomorrow will be an easy pizza night.  I love those freschetta pizzas.  Thursday I am going to do a pot roast in the slow cooker so we will have plenty of leftovers after that.  

 

Karen, the spices in that stew look really interesting, I bet it was good.  Gonna bookmark to try myself, I like cumin.

I was home for a few days and I don't know what my hubs did while I was gone but I spent more time in the bathroom than not.  I'm on the road again and my system has settled down.  When I'm back home I think I have to start all over and clean the kitchen and such again.  I am NOT happy.  I know he brought out our old toaster and I had to clean that up but I can't figure out why it was an ongoing problem after that.  Maybe some of the food I got at the Organic place was subject to CC and not labeled as such??  Frustrating!!

 

I did find a restaurant here that has good gluten-free practices and had some mac and cheese last night.  It was really good and gluten-free :D.

Putting a roast beef in the crock pot for later today.  I just put it in with carrots and then I make mashed potatoes and gravy when we eat it.  Leftovers make great BBQ shredded beef.

My pasta bake was a mix of different kinds. I made it with soybean pasta, chickpea rotini, and corn lasagna cuts.

Sure!  I use this recipe, with double the amount of dumplings, some extra broth and extra veggies. http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/gluten-free-chicken-and-dumplings/dac34321-1834-4357-b5ee-2e273fabab53

It is basically drop biscuits, but has the same great taste so it is good to me.

Now that I have my stove working again I am going to make one of my famous bacon egg and cheese sandwiches. Schar bread untoasted, smeared with LOTS of butter. An over easy egg with melted extra sharp white cheddar. Two (unless I splurge and have three) strips of bacon cooked very crisp and crumbled on top of the melted cheese. Then I'll turn the sandwich upside down so I can peek at where the yolk is. I'll eat around the edges and be VERY careful when I get near the yolk. When I do get to the yolk I'll tip it up and take a tiny bite so the yolk doesn't explode. Rather gravity will assist it into my mouth.

 

You have to build these carefully. If you don't crumble the bacon, a bite might put pressure on the yolk and break it prematurely. And of course if you don't put the bacon on top of the melted cheese it'll fall out. If you toast the bread it'll be too hard and break the yolk. Lots of experimenting went into this complex recipe. :lol:  :lol:

 

But seriously, I am having so much fun with food now that I can eat so many "new" things.

I hope some of the newbies who are afraid they will never eat anything good again are reading this thread. What wonderful sounding meals! I confess, I do come here for inspiration when I am out of ideas. Y'all haven't let me down yet!

Steaks (and salmon for my meat allergic kid), roasted brussel sprouts with cranberries and baked potatoes. I found the brussel sprout recipe on Pinterest so I haven't tried it yet.

We had Thanksgiving yesterday at our house.  We had smoked turkey, crockpot scalloped potatoes, cheesy corn, corn bread, spinach with bacon, gingered carrots, cranberry - all gluten-free.  Then my sis brought gluteny pies for everyone.  this is OK because we clear the other food away and it is one less thing for me to make.  I decided I wanted Boozy Pudding - so that is what I made for me.

Ah yes, Thanksgiving prep time!  I should have tried to get an invite to Karens house... lol. Making easy stuff in the lead up to Thursday at my house this year... today I am eating an Aldi gluten-free frozen lasagna. Tomorrow starts prep, Wednesday is pie day and other make ahead stuff, and Thursday is the day we stuff ourselves. I am making turkey breast roasts instead of a whole turkey.  That and ham, green beans sauteed with mushrooms and shallots, sweet potato casserole, dressing/stuffing, chebe cheese rolls, gravy, and apple and pecan pie.  All gluten-free because I don't want to feed people gluten in my house.  Yum Yum!!!!

    • You are right, the tests could be invalid.   All the celiac tests require you to be on a gluten-containing diet.  It is up to you to decide if you want to go gluten free.  You can do it.  Believe me, I know.  Hubby is not officially diagnosed.  He went gluten-free 15 years ago, based on the rather poor advice from my allergist and his GP.  It worked though.  But he would be the first to tell you that I have had way more support in terms of family and medical.    We think he has it.  Both of our families are riddled with autoimmine disorders.  I am the first to be diagnosed.   My Aunt went gluten free per the advice of her Chiropractor.  Her other doctors never suspected celiac disease.  The diet obviously worked for her.  Her daughter (my cousin) is a nurse.  She had an endoscopy but they did not check for celiac disease.  She chose to go gluten-free too since it worked for her mom.  Both will not do a gluten challenge.  However, my diagnosis has helped them get proper medical treatment.  My Aunt is very active in a celiac support group.    Now everyone in my family knows about celiac disease.  My own niece was just diagnosed with Crohn's, but her GI did test and will continue to test her for celiac disease.  You can develop additional autoimmune disorders at any time.   So far, a few other members have been tested.  No one else had had a celiac disease diagnosis yet.  Time will tell.  If I can save someone from the misery of struggling to get a diagnosis, then I can feel good.   Now, an official diagnosis will help you adhere to the diet .  You can get follow-up care.  Get checked for other things like SIBO, H. Pylori and cancer.  But ultimately, it is up to you.   Whatever you decided to do, please consider a family health history chart.  You might someday help a grandchild.   The stool tests?  In all my research, leading celiac experts do not recommend them.  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/  
    • The procedure is a breeze. You will go in, be sedated and go to sleep for a short nap and then it's over. Some people will have a bit of a sore throat but not everyone does. For me the hardest part of the endo was not being able to drink coffee when I got up. You seem to have been back on gluten for long enough to have the test but as CLady said there is a good chance your blood work may be negative. In your case you may want to continue eating gluten after the biopsy at least until you get your blood results. If they are negative consider going a bit longer and getting them redone.
    • I think the gene tests are accurate.  Not sure if thier interpretation of them is.   If you actually think have Celiac, you need to know that.  You  need to know how careful you must be.  You need a diagnosis to get gluten-free food in hospitals or nursing homes (if you can find one that does gluten-free food).  Because thsese "stool tests" are not medically accepted, it is unlikely that a real medical facility will consider you to have Celiac.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Why would your doctor order an endoscopy and check for celiac disease, but not order a celiac panel?  Had you been gluten free already?  
    • Thanks cyclinglady ... just wondering, do most of the people on this forum believe the Enterolab stool / gene testing to be non-trustworthy? Or are you just recommending a diagnosis from my MD so that she is also treating me with full belief/knowledge of my condition? I've been gluten free now for 2 weeks - by the time I get in to my doctor, she orders the bloodwork and I get to a lab it could be another 2 weeks before the bloodwork is done. From what I understand, just a month of gluten free eating could skew the results of the blood test. Supposedly, the stool tests are much more accurate. I hate to go backwards and start eating gluten again just so I can have a blood test done that may or may not substantiate the results of the stool / gene testing. I'm so confused ...
