We had steaks on our new grill, baked potatoes and steamed broccoli. Simple and yummy! I've missed grilled food!

Tonight we are having pizza potatoes. It's my daughter's 5th birthday and she wanted pepperoni pizza for dinner so she decided that we would have a meat "pizza" and put pepperoni and turkey bacon with tomatoes on a baked potato "crust". And I think I may try to make a microwave brownie for her birthday dessert, if it doesn't work she still gets her cake on Saturday though.

Just saw this comment, so sorry for the late reply. Thanks! The move was a little stressful but it is all over now. Most things are unpacked, a few things are still finding homes. My only snag right now is my dishwasher isn't working. The repair person already came once. At first it didn't work at all--no water was comign out, only steam. After the repair guy left, it ran fine for two washes. on the third wash water started pouring out the front of it and nearly flooded the kitchen! Repair guy is supposed to come back tommorrow morning and if they can't fix it we may get a new one (this was newly installed when we moved in).

Anyway, the grill has seen a lot of action the past few days due to my dishwasher being broken. Since I'm hand washing all the dishes I want as few pans to wash as possible. I love to cook, but I hate dishes!

So the past couple days on the grill we have had steak, Ahi Tuna steaks with mixed veggies steamed in foil packets, and chicken kabobs. Tommorrow I'm doing either bison or turkey burgers if the dishwasher's still broken, and I might even get paper plates and use plastic ware, LOL!

Glad to hear you are all moved in - hope you get into your routine soon. Too bad about your dishwasher. I am not exactly fond of doing dishes, either, but have so many specialty cooking things that cannot go into it. The only times we use it is when we have guests over. I cook so much that I must wash dishes a few times a day (i.e. cannot fit my 17 lb mortar and pestle in there nor will I put my AllClad in there - same with my good knives).

Nice to have you back! :)

Hey gluten-free Manna,

Just wanted to make sure you know about the Cargil Ground Turkey recall. If not, here's a link. http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-fi-0804-turkey-recall-20110804,0,1439391.story

Good luck with the dishwasher.

We grill year round here. I prep and do the sides, my partner does the grilling.

We had grilled ground sirloin onion burgers on UDIs buns with sweet potatos and salad and sweet cheeries dipped in chocolate sauce.

Anyway, please make sure your ground turkey isn't from the bad lot. I skimmed the article, but I'm allergic to turkey so didn't pay close attention, just thought of it when I saw you were considering it for tomorrow.

Thanks for the warning! I haven't bought my meat yet. I was planning on getting it tommorrow morning. I don't know if the recalled brands are in my stores or not but I guess I will go with bison or chicken just to be safe. I'm sure we'll grill year round too now that we have a place we are allowed to grill (before we were in an apt that wouldn't even let us store a grill on the premises).

You're welcome. Those of us in "The Club" have to watch out for each other. Glad you aren't living in captivity anymore! :D

    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
