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

    • Here is another point.  My hubby went gluten-free per the poor advice of his GP and my allergist.  It worked.  A tough first year, but he got well.  Thirteen years later, I got diagnosed with celiac disease.  I was shocked!  😱.   Does he have celiac disease?  We will never know because we can not afford to have him do a challenge.  He refuses and I can not blame him.  He knows he will be very sick!   The point?  I am so lucky that we both can not have gluten.  I never worry about him making me sick or vice versa. We made the house completely gluten free for  1) our health and 2) the fact that our kid started helping in the kitchen. Kids make mistakes and I personally need a safe haven.  She wants gluten?  I buy prepackaged stuff and she takes it to school.  All parties and events at my house are gluten free.  Lots of work, but we stay healthy.  She does not have celiac disease.  When she is preparing for a celiac test,  I send her on the porch to eat cookies or bread or whatever floats her boat.  We travel in a gluten-free RV.  I have five sizes of ice chests.  We just have to be prepared for any event.   How can we live this way?   We love feeling good.
    • Freize is right, you need to think about your environment.   Based on that a study I posted for you, you will note that the patients who were diagnosed with refractory celiac disease and THOUGHT they were diet compliant found that they WERE NOT diet compliant.  How is this possible?   This is way out there, but unless you are growing all your own food, you don't really know if it is gluten free.  In the US, we do have laws to help protect our food supplies (no perfect, but a start).    I can not speak for India.  For example, what about your soy?  It can be contaminated by the farmer as it is often rotated with wheat.  Here is an article by Jane Anderson who has celiac disease.  She is very strict as she has DH (celiac rash), but she cites Trisha Thompson who tests foods for gluton contamination, The gluten-free WatchDog (like Consumer reports).  She found that soy which is naturally gluten free, but can be cross contaminated by wheat: https://www.verywell.com/is-soy-gluten-free-562371 so, start thinking about your food supply. As far as a negative TTG IGA or TTG IGG?  I test negative to both.  Only the DGP IGA has ever been elevated in my blood tests (even repeats), yet I had a Marsh Stage IIIIB on my biopsy.  Have you had a DGP IGG?  (I do not see this in your posting).   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ These additonal celiac tests might help you feel confident that you have celiac disease and not something else that is damaging your villi.  But remember, some  folks have celiac disease even with negative blood.  I am not IGA deficient, so this is an area I have not researched.  Not to mention that some celiac researchers do not think that the celiac  antibodies tests are good for diet compliancy.   I wish I had better answers for you.  Try a grain free, whole foods diet of meats, fish, eggs, and vegetables for a while.  All food prepared by you. Who cooks your food now?  Is your home gluten free?  Cross contamination at home?  Kissing a loved one.  We had a doctor with celiac disease who was getting glutened by her little children who were consuming gluten!  
    • I won't say I will never eat out but I can't see me eating out for the foreseeable future. Even then, I will most likely only eat at a dedicated gluten free place. I am extremely sensitive to the tiniest amount of gluten and it's just not worth the risk to me. Eating out is playing Russian Roulette as far as I'm concerned and I'm not ready to play that game yet.
    • You are right. The weirdest part is that I feel fine, however, I am sure cross-contamination is doing damage even when we don't think it is.
