Was planning on burgers (I ended up buying beef today) but hubby had to work late and wasn't in the mood to grill. I didn't feel like cooking so I made some Tinkyada spaghetti and meat sauce with the beef.

Today I cooked stuffed peppers (turkey meat, veggies, brown rice, in a tomato-basil-and garlic sauce) with apple cider roasted vegetables on the side. It was delicious, and more important free of all eight allergens for my brother.

We're having grilled hog snapper thai style with basatmi rice and lemon drop martinis. Maybe a salad, maybe not. (Had salad for lunch, as usual.) So we're off to Thailand tonight. :D

I pulled a single serving of chili out of my freezer for dinner. So does that mean I took a trip to Mexico? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sylvia, Sylvia, Sylvia. Just what ARE we going to do with you? :lol::lol: Hey - maybe you should quickly squeeze a lime over your chili and you're set. That sort of counts for your minimum!! :lol:

I'm hopeless! That's what happens when you live alone...who needs a table? I put shredded cheddar cheese on it...does that count? And the chili is homemade! I'll try not to spill it on my keyboard. :P

You're too funny. When my husband is away our kitchen table stands alone. :P

Is the cheese at least Mexican? If so, which region in Mexico? Was the chili powder homemade or did you..GASP...buy it?? :lol::lol: I'll let you get back to Mexico in peace... B)

Well, it's lunch as well as supper, but I'm proud of myself. I COOKED something and it came out really good! I roasted a large chicken breast (with both skin and bones), and when it was done I took the meat off the bones (after I stood at the counter and ate some of the cripay skin :) ). Then I added water to the drippings and cooked my brown rice in that water/drippings mixture. I added some parsley, and some rosemary. Now, I love the taste of rosemary, but I don't like chewing on those "twigs", so I put it in a tea ball and hung it over the side of the pan. It gave the rice a great flavor.

So then I mixed the shredded chicken with the rice and added some finely chopped broccoli. Not only does it taste good, but it's kind of pretty to look at too. That's the way I had it for lunch, but I've got a question: I have some gluten-free sour cream that I added some garlic to that I've been using as a vegetable dip. Would it be good if I added a touch of that to the mix? I'm thinking the sour cream part might be OK, but I don't know if the garlic will go good with the rosemary. What do you experienced cooks think?

Not sure what we're having tonight but tomorrow night it's my little girl's birthday so her choice is lentil rissoles with mashed potato, roast sweet potato, pumpkin and carrot and steame broccoli and zucchini so that's for tomorrow night. I think maybe a salad or something tonight, not sure yet.

Salmon Artichoke Patties (retro with a post-millenium twist)

Summer Smashed Red Potatoes

Peas (freezer, sadly, the garden was too wet to pick from)

Chocolate

First serious cooked meal in almost a week-- I've been furiously working on final edits on my cooking for one cookbook. It's almost there, but find it sort of ironic that I've been living on peanut butter and carrot sticks while finishing a cookbook on healthy eating for one.

I wish I knew...I had planned on having taco chicken, coat chicken with taco season and pan fry it then after it's mostly cook add salsa and let it soak up some flavor. We used to serve it with sour cream, but I'm not sure we will do that when we have it.

Grilled mini olive burgers, (no buns) cottage cheese and fresh black cherries. That probably sounds disgusting, but it was really god.

I think you sould go with your insticts. If you want to be cautious, just mix a bit of the chicken with the sour cream/garlic and taste it after if sits for a few hours or overnight.

If you want to stretch the chicken a bit farther, chop up grapes, celery, apples, toss in some nuts, and have that on a bed of lettuce or in a lettuce wrap. You could throw in some curry powder if you want to change it up a bit. My thinking is that rosemary is good with potatoes and sour cream is good with potatoes, so rosemary garlic sour cream is probably the bomb. I think that will be good with cold chicken.

P.S. Rosemary and grainy gluten-free mustard are really tasty as a sauce or marinade. Just add agave, honey or brown sugar. Unbelievably good, and who'd have thought?

Don't forget Germany (bratwurst). That was kind of a mishmash when you think about it (but a tasty mishmash). :P

    • Hi, you can try reporting your own post.  That should alert the site admin of your request.  I don't think they can delete your posts, but changing your user name may be possible.
    • Hi Pablito, Welcome to the forum! You are right, you should keep eating gluten  until the tests are all done.  The skin problems you describe ma be a condition only celiacs get.  The condition is called dermatitis herpetiformis (DH for short),  DH causes an itchy rash that is usually symetrical on the body.  You get the rash on both arms or legs etc.  It makes little blisters on the skin.  They are caused by IgA antibodies in the skin.  There i a test for DH where they take a small skin sample (biopsy) from the skin next to a blister and check it for IgA antibodies.   If they find DH, then you have celiac disease.  The 2 conditions are never separate.  there is a section of this forum dedicated to dermatitis herpetiformis with lots more information. The usual diagnostic process is to do a celiac antibodies blood test first, and then an endoscopy to test for damage to the gut lining.  But with DH, it is better to get the skin biopsy done instead of the endoscopy. Celiac disease is passed on in genes, so your children should be tested also if you are diagnosed.
    • Research Celiac Ataxia for potential diagnosis. Look at Milk and dairy for potential head and sinus related issues.  I stopped dairy and I can breathe now! Saturated fat may also be a problem, but it's mostly dairy!
    • It is best not to try and do this on your own. Talk to your allergist. Not all will deal with food intolerances but if yours doesn't find one who will.  Mine had me fill out a very detailed diet questionaire and tested for true allergies before he gave me my starting point. I will admit I wasn't real happy with my starting point since none of my usual foods were on it. He said that I was most likely to react to foods I ate the most so most of the 5 I either rarely ate or didn't really like. The prescribed starting point he formulated was designed to make sure I had adaquate nutrition and enough calories.   It took about 2 weeks before a lot of my tummy issues resolved and I was then able to start adding foods in one at a time for a week before moving on to the next.  He said food intolerance reactions can take up to a week to show up so I had to be sure it was a full week between food additions. I did have to call three offices before I found a doctor who could do the formulation of the diet but this guy truely saved my life. Out of all the doctors I had seen, including specialists in big hospitals, he was the one responsible for finally realizing I was celiac. He of course referred me back to my clueless GI doctor who confirmed the diagnosis by almost killing me with a gluten challenge. I should note that some of my intolerance (not gluten of course) did resolve after I had healed. Even dairy which I hadn't been able to have for years! I hope you can get some answers and are able to heal soon.
    • I'm 43 years old. I'm married and have two teen daughters. After all these years it was one of my daughters who tonight said to me: "you probably have Celiac disease" after hearing my wife and I talking about all the pimples I always get on my arms. I never heard of the disease but I have heard about a lot of people having gluten allergies and didn't know they were the same thing. So I started looking it up on the internet. Turns out I have had all the symptoms all my life and no one has ever said anything about it possibly being Celiac disease. When I was a kid my doctor gave me prescriptions to antibacterial soaps to use for the arm pimples. Hibitane I think was one of them. And I've always had swollen looking ankles as long as I can remember. All my life people have noticed it. As a kid and teen I played lot's of sports and have broken my ankles and sprained them so my mom and I brushed it off at that and so did my family doctor when I was young.  But I always thought it was weird that the swelling continued all these years.  I have had a bloated feeling stomach all my life too and chronic diarrhea. My stomach is always hard and swollen feeling. Not ever knowing what that stuff was related too so I have never mentioned the bloat or diarrhea to a doctor. Just kind of embarrassing I guess. As my wife and I were reading about Celiac Disease on the internet together tonight she pointed out to me that that's probably why these symptoms almost all went away when I did a very low carb diet for about a year straight to lose weight a couple years ago. I had solid bowel movements, no bloat, ankle swelling went down but I thought the improvements were from weight loss and just eating healthier . But perhaps in reality it probably had a lot more to do with not eating all the wheat products/gluten products. So tomorrow I will be seeing my doctor to talk to him about it and to ask for the blood tests. I have read that I should continue eating gluten though until my testing is done. So that is crappy but I guess it's better to know for sure. Something else I think I should point out too is that I get headaches quite a bit after having big meals. Now I am thinking that may have something to do with the gluten too. I have read that some people with Celiac also get headaches with the other symptoms. It's great to see there is a forum like this to help people out with these issues. If I test positive for Celiac I will for sure be following this forum closely for advice and diet/nutrition help.
