Crock pot sesame orange chicken, rice and sugar snap peas for tonight.

Really need to start getting things ready for Thanksgiving...we're going to my mom's but I'm bringing a lot of the stuff.

I usually eat a small breakfast, a big lunch and then a small supper. I cooked that turkey and will be having that for lunch today. And yesterday, one day only, the store had russet potatoes on sale - a five pound bag for FORTY-EIGHT CENTS, limit 2 per customer, so I'll be having a baked potato with my turkey.

 

But for breakfast (and supper later) I have grilled cheese. I got the Schar multi-grain bread by mistake. (I had wanted to get the white to make stuffing with.) And I got the big block of American cheese. I'll tell you, that Schar multi-grain makes the best darned grilled cheese I may have ever had.

Bart...I just love your enthusiasm for the foods that you've gotten back! It gives me hope that someday I will be able to eat more things too. Thanks for sharing it!

Thanks! I learned patience and self-control while I was so restricted so in the long run it was good for me. And now I just want to celebrate.

 

It'll happen for you too. And when it does you'd better watch your figure! :lol: I thought giving up ice cream would make me lose weight but with all the ymmy things I've gotten back I fear I'm eating more now than I ever did! :ph34r:

So, I got a box of glutino corn bread stuffing. Could I substitute the butter it asks for with olive oil?

Lets see.  Haven't posted in a while, so some catch-up

 

We made some great pizzas on pizza crusts from a local bakery - cheese & feta; pepperoni, jalapeno & pineapple; red onions and bacon; and a BBQ chicken - Gates BBQ sauce for the sauce, grilled chicken, red onions, cheddar & moz.

 

Turkey sandwiches on millet rolls, left-over scalloped potatoes & carrot sticks & chocolate and apple cinnamon cupcakes.

No. They are from a gluten-free bakery close to my house.

Last night I made Spaghetti with Broccoli.  Today will be beef stir fry with brown rice.  

 

I put in a huge order for canyon bakehouse bread... if you order $50+ it is free shipping with code "canyonfreeship".  The email I got says it is good through Friday.  So excited to have a good stockup of bread!  I will probably eat it all too quickly... lol.

Cold here, too!  I put some beans on the crock pot, black beans with bacon and I will probably fry up some sweet potatoes to go with it.

I made white pork chili from Danielle Walker's book Meals Made Simple, and a Schar's baguette.  Both were really good!

COD!! The healthfood store had wild caught Alaskan cod for a good price. I'll be broiling it with butter and bread crumbs. I'll probably have a baked potato and some broccoli with it. And I WILL be sharing with the cat. (She loves cod almost as much as I do.)

Went to Jimmy John's last night.  I checked and double checked with them to make sure everything was gluten-free--or what I could have was gluten-free.  They called their manager to "verify" too....sicker than a dog today.  Did some more research, their roast beef is NOT gluten-free....I will be stopping by to make sure they don't do that to someone else.  I am on the road traveling and it was pretty much my only option.  I have some food with me but I did plan to eat out last night so I did not bring "dinner" food.....ugggggg.

We had beef stew last night, too!  With some experimental "pop-over" rolls.  The rolls were very "eggy"- not really what we wanted but OK.

 

Sunday night we had the best green chili pork stew!  Cooked the pork for 4 hours in the oven, then made the stew!  It was fabulous!  We are having more tonight!

Anyone have any ideas for a gluten-free substitute for Guinness Beer?  I have an Irish Stew recipe that we like to make in the winter but it needs Guinness or a dark beer.

Guinness is something I still miss. I don't know of any gluten-free beer that is even close.

I think the overall flavor would be fine even if it's not drinkable as a solo delight :D.  Probably can't duplicate it gluten-free though since it's such a gluten heavy drink.

Sadly just had gluten free chicken strips and oreida fries for dinner tonight. We ran out of Thanksgiving leftovers and have yet to venture into the grocery stores to replenish.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
