The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

My husband was at the Colt's game last night and I had a birthday dinner to go to, so I made a spur of the moment soup in my crockpot:

Beef Stew Soup

1 Container Swanson's Beef Broth or Stock

2-3 lbs. stew beef

3 large Irish potatoes, diced

6-8 carrots, cut in thirds

Salt, pepper, bayleaf

1 small onion, diced

4 bulbs of garlic, 2 diced, 2 cooked whole

I cooked the soup on high for four hours, while I was out, in my crockpot and then cooked it on low for another hour until tender.

We had it for lunch today with a dollop of sour cream. Very filling and delicious.

Sure! It's really easy, I don't really follow a recipe but I can tell you how to make it:

1 can (or about two cups) chicken broth

1-2 eggs

1 green onion, chopped

gluten-free Soy sauce (optional, I used Coconut Secrets instead, but I have left out the soy in the past)

Heat broth to a slow rolling boil. Beat eggs in a bowl with a wisk or fork. When broth is boiling stir in a circular motion and slowing pour egg into boiling broth while stiring. Fast stiring and slow pouring will lead to thin egg ribbons, slow stiring or fast pouring will lead to thick egg pieces. Add chopped green onion and remove from heat. Serve hot. Add gluten-free soy sauce to flavor if desired. If using homemade broth you may need to add extra salt. My DH likes to add hot sauce to his to make it spicy. You could also add chopped veggies of any kind like carrots if you want, just don't boil too long after you add the eggs or they get overcooked. If done right, the eggs are thin, light and almost like noodles. I often make this when I'm sick because it's an easy chicken soup.

Just found blue cod on sale at the supermarket, so fresh, so delish. only $5.00 - all we had with it was lemon (for DH), asparagus, and baked yam. It was wonderful. Could eat that every night if it wasn't normally so damnably expensive. They must be expecting a big shipment in on Friday :o Mebee I'll go back??

Bacon...YUM! Sounds good to me. laugh.gif For two days I've been running around like a crazy woman with appointments and errands. And it's been unusually cold with 30 mph winds. Came home feeling like a popsicle! After getting off to a good start earlier in the week with a chicken stir-fry/rice and pot roast, last night I actually had peanut butter on a Lundberg brown rice cake and two pieces of banana bread. Nary a veggie in sight. tongue.gif Good thing I live alone and don't have to worry about feeding a family...they just wouldn't get it and I needn't be concerned with setting a good example!!!

I haven't tried popcorn (my absolute favorite snack food) for about six months...the last time I had it, I liked it but it didn't like me. ph34r.gif But I'd only been gluten-free for a couple of months then. I used to occasionally have a bowl of cereal for dinner...not often but hey, it was food and it was real. biggrin.gif

When I got home yesterday, I was absolutely starved so did have a ham sandwich on Udi's bread about 3 p.m. so that took the edge off my ravenous hunger.

Took me a couple years to be able to eat popcorn again--so there's hope :D

Package of ground turkey breast, cooked on stovetop, added 2 cans of tomatoes, let heat through thoroughly. It was actually pretty healthy until I melted the big chunk of cheese into my bowl of it. :P

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
