Gado Gado (sort of the Indonesian version of potato salad)

Rujak Manis (fruit with spicy coconut sugar sauce with ground peanuts)

Acar (sort of pickled vegetables)

Bawang Goreng (seasoned crispy shallots)

Should be good (and fairly busy!).

Tonight was oven roasted Pork roast with minced garlic on corn tortillas with a HUGE dollop of sour cream.

I have REALLY been lacking on the veggies lately so I guess next weekend I best plan on making a BIG pot of vegetable beef soup ( really the only way I like veggies :ph34r: )

It was my partner's birthday. He wanted twice baked potatos and Porterhouse steak with salad. (No cake, the taters are better than dessert, he said.)

It's a pia to make twice baked potatos. Bake 4 very large Idado potatos at 400 degrees for an hour. Meanwhile, fry and crumble 8 pieces of bacon. (I prefer Applewood smoked.) Chop 6-8 green onions (green & white parts). When the baked potatos are done, scoop out the potatoe from the skins, leaving a 1/8" or so layer of tater on the skin.

Mix 1 cup sour cream, 1 cup cheddar cheese, 1/3 cup milk (I used half & half), and s&P to taste. Throw in the crumbled bacon and chopped green onions, mix with a hand mixer and restuff your skins. Top them with a scant handful of shredded cheddar cheese and cook them for 15 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven. (Or wrap them in foil and stick them on the grill off of the fire.)

I guess if it makes him happy, I'd rather make twice baked potatos than a birthday cake, and it took about the same time/effort that it would to produce a gluten-free BD cake. Plus the twice baked potatoes freeze well, so the leftovers are better!

I couldn't do dairy for quite awhile, I seem to be on a dairy fest now, and OMG those taters were good.

Even though they're kind of pricy, I think we can have them as a dinner by themselves, and the recipe made 8 single servings that freeze well.

I love that twice-baked potatoes are so versatile! I also like to add in roasted garlic pulp, creme fraiche, diced pancetta, mushroom duxelles, garlic scapes, aged gruyere or gorgonzola, garlic chives, caramelized shallots or onion garlic jam, good olive oil and maybe some fried capers. The toppings are endless, aren't they? They are so easy to make and underrated. Filled "jacket" potatoes are common in the UK - they have fillings such as brown beans, tuna, etc.

Glad you enjoyed them so much!

Thank you for the suggestions, Love! I never thought of a tuna melt in a potato jacket, used to love them on toast! OMG, new lunch ideas! Happy days!

I'm trying not to go overboat on dairy, because I've read old posts about being intolerant/tolerant/intolerant. I definitely love being in the middle. Thanks again.

Oh, you're more than welcome! My mind is so filled with food ideas at any given time it's almost pathetic.

I was just told yesterday by my dietitian to cut out dairy for two weeks (I've been having tummy issues now after being gluten-free for six months). So, that is why we pigged out on cheese last night!

Tuna melts (or even just tuna salad) on baked potatoes are really very good. Same with chicken salad, chili, stew...

We had leftovers with "make a random salad from the contents of the fridge and pantry" night. LOL. My husband's salad consisted of: Iceberg lettuce, bell peppers, onions, shredded carrots and peanuts. Mine had romaine, cucumber, shredded carrot, raisins, almonds and plantain chips. Both of us used homemade Italian dressing. I had leftover fish and husband had leftover chicken. Now my fridge is cleaned out of leftovers/going bad produce and I can make something new tomorrow. :D

ETA: Tommorrow I plan to make cabbage rolls in the slow cooker and mashed potatoes.

I love those clean-out-the-fridge meals! Tonight I'm going to make a clean-out-the-fridge stir-fry. Since I'm thinking about it before 8 a.m., it will happen. :)

I wish I knew...my husband is making me dinner and there are 2 steaks marinating in the fridge in 2 different marinades. I smelled citrus fruits but he kicked me out of the kitchen before I could see what he was doing with it.

Tommorrow I plan to make cabbage rolls in the slow cooker and mashed potatoes.

I had to change my plans. My head of cabbage had a spots that looked like rot or mold or something going all the way through. Not single leaf was good. I already had my stuffing mixed up when I discovered it so I had to improvise. I had some shredded cabbage for coleslaw in the fridge and used that in layers with the filling in the slow cooker and then topped with tomato juice. So it's an unstuffed cabbage roll casserole instead of cabbage rolls. :)

I had scallops las night while hub had shrimp - what to have with it? There was STILL some rice salad left, so I sliced up some mushrooms and sauteed them, dumped the rice in and had fried rice and swiss chard. :)

That happened to me once. I was solely catering a dinner event and making a slaw and all the cabbages had that stuff running through them!

Improvising forces one to be more creative - I actually quite enjoy it (unless I am catering! :lol: ).

Sounds as though it turned out well for you anyway!

I have made a fabulous recipe that I was proud of. Rice, sweet potates, peppers, onions, and black beans. mmmmm. It takes alot of pans, but worth it! You just peel and dice the sweet potates, season them and cook them in a 400 degree oven, cook your black beans, rinsed and in some clear water on the stove top, cook the peppers and onions in a pan, with some olive oil, rice in the rice cooker. Once all is complete mix it all together, and voila!

    • Anyone done commercial testing?
      Thanks @LauraTX, @squirmingitch had recommended them before, and finally I've just joined up. I'll see about collaborating with them. 
    • Glutening symptoms five days to a week after consumption?
      Me too Missy.   Four days.  It has made sorting this out very difficult to say the least.
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      First ~ Re-introducing gluten after so many years is an "old" thing.  I am 6 years diagnosed and I was originally told that  same thing by my Dr.  At the time my doctor was not  terribly familiar with Celiac and started doing research right along with me.  After she did more research on the (then) current studies she changed that to a "never eat gluten again!"  What happens, with some people (note I say "some"), is that once your gut does heal you enter into what can be called the "honeymoon" period.  Your gut is healed and you can consume gluten without feeling physically sick.  But...  and this is the biggy should you be one of those who can tolerate it.....  eventually you will get sick again.  And all during the time you were happily munching on gluten and not feeling physically sick the damage to your insides was still going on.  So... only you can answer if it is worth it or not.  I say no!! Second ~ I am 6 years gluten free.  I can count the number of times I have consumed gluten, each time was a total accident.   So, to your question on consistency, I would say it has been six years. And third ~ As for perfecting the diet, well, that can have several answers.  Yes, like most everyone, I struggled greatly in the beginning to learn what gluten was and where it hides.  My feeling of perfection came after about 3 years when I discovered the Paleo diet and went pretty strict Paleo.  That is when it became a very simple thing and my health improved dramaticly.  Personally, I would grab a Paleo book, see how simple g.f. can be.  Read about the effects wheat can have on everyone (not just those with celiac) and I think you will have an easier time of it.  Good luck to you.  !!  
    • Suspect Celiac, no medical access, options?
      Hi everyone, I'm new here!  So, I'll just give the short version first, and we can go from there.   I'm a 46 year old man who has had mysterious health issues my whole life, but only recently began to suspect dietary causes.  I am now quite sure that most of my issues for the last 40 years have been related to wheat, and now I am reacting to at least one form of Corn as well, as best I can tell on my own here.   I'm part of the US demographic that has fallen between the cracks in the medical system, and I have never felt like I had the luxury of medical help.  This is something I intend to work through in the coming months, as it's obvious to me I need some help here.  That said, I've read enough to know I would like to initiate the testing procedure.   Has anyone had any experience with using a walk-in clinic or the like to take the samples and handle the transfer to the labs to get the testing done?  I am imagining I could just walk in and get blood taken and instruct them which labs and what tests and be done with it, but.....?  I dunno, maybe it won't work that way.  At any rate, it's going to be a long, difficult process for me to figure out regular health care, and in the meantime, I'd like to figure out what's killing me here!    Any advice is welcome!
    • Gluten challenge. Random reactions of gluten sensitivity (brain fog)
      hi all, I have brain fog and I suspect that is due to gluten sensitivity.  When I became aware of those symptoms in the past, I did an elimination diet, and gluten introduction  seemed to correlate with the perceived brain fog Then, I was off gluten for a year, but because it is self-diagnosed it is not always easy to explain it and remain 100% gluten free when, for example, travelling or invited to someone's house for dinner. So, I thought I wanted to get to the bottom of this and check for celiac decease first. I have been doing a gluten challenge for the last 4 weeks, and my symptoms are very strange. Sometimes, I eat a slice of cake or a croissant and I can be tired and foggy for the whole day.  Strangely,  there are other times where i can eat bread or a full pizza and have no symptoms at all. Beer is strange, sometimes it affects me, sometimes it does not at all... I am not sensitive to Pasta so far... I am very confused. I thought that maybe it was because the consumed gluten quantity but there does not seem to be any correlation at all. Sometimes, I think that it has to be something else (not the gluten) that is causing those reactions. I cannot understand the random reaction to gluten.  Does anybody have a similar experience or an insight or what could be going on? Thanks!!!
