The kids have a snow day...they are so excited to go sledding! I'm making chili in the crock pot and corn bread to go with for dinner to warm everyone up.

Just finished a marinara sauce for French bread pizzas dinner. I still need to bake the bread. I will make cheese ones for the 2 younger kids, the works for hubby and my oldest and a caprese...light on the mozzarella for me. I've just started dabbling in a bit of dairy. I'll make a big tossed salad to go along with.

These were a huge hit with all! I was asked to make them again and one of my boys asked if he could have the recipe when he's grown up and has his own house. Lol!

Tonight I'm making chicken enchiladas and cilantro lime rice.

swedish venison pot roast in the crock pot (kfg :) ! )  mashed taters, carrots.  

 

made chocolate chip cookies from the atk cookbook yesterday - used domato (donato?) flour and didn't realize it already had xanthan gum in it, so they are super chewy <pretty tasty, actually)  i like them a little flatter, but they're still good.  

 

a word of advice:  those cookie dough fundraisers (this particular company is 'classic cookie') are now offering gluten free chocolate chip dough.  don't bother unless you like crunchy dirt  ^_^  also, manufactured in a facility that processes peanuts, treenut and wheat products (but they don't tell you that until you get the container - it has a disclaimer sticker on the lid...   <_<  )

Good info on the cookie dough.  At least Celiac gives me a reason to turn down all those overpriced fundraisers I am asked to buy from, LOL.

I am eating a chunky monkey cupcake from my favorite gluten-free bakery.  Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Banana. Pretty good!  They also had eclairs, first one I have had since DX.

OOo I made the house some lasagna last night.

 

Switched out regular pasta with the Tinkyada lasagna noodles. oh my!!!

 

I followed some online suggestions instead of the box directions. I only boiled the noodles for about 2 minutes then too then out and lined them on the counter. I ran then through my olive oiled fingers so they wouldnt stick to each other or anything.  I used two boxes, and had 3/4 of a box left over (which I broke up and used to make and freeze a cheaters lasagna pot). It takes 4 noodles across and one on the end for each layer. There are 16 in each box.

I use those noodles for lasagna and I don't bother cooking them at all.  They work great that way and saves some time and mess.

Sure...here's a link to the recipe:

http://www.skinnytaste.com/2009/04/baked-chicken-parmesan.html

I did make my own marinara, although I've used jarred as well. I make the bread crumbs too. I also use more butter and mozzarella than listed. Lol! I guess is just a guideline more than a recipe at this point. For noodles last night I used Ronzoni. Everyone loved it!

My homemade sauce is pretty thick/dry -so I add a little extra water. Jarred sauce is usually wet enough to cook the noodles.

Yeah I normally keep mine sauce super dry too because I usually use it for spiralized noodles but I added some water to this for the noodles to absorb. :D

    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue 
    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep. 
    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.)
