I'm cooking extra tonight because I go back to work tomorrow! Turkey meatloaf, greenbeans, sweet potato for the kids and baked lemon basil chicken for lunch. My son is grilling pork chops to have on hand as well.

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!

It did turn out fine! Not very pretty to look at on the plate, but tasted the same as cabbage rolls anyway. I'm pretty good at improvising. My other ideas if I had not had the shredded cabbage:

1. add another egg and shape the filling into a meatloaf

2. try filling rice paper wrappers with the stuffing and baking like enchiladas

3. baking some potatoes, hollowing them out and putting the stuffing in those to cook

I'm making gluten free (of course) pizza, new pizza crust recipe. Still can't find a good recipe.

Have you tried the crust from the CIA Baking book? I posted it on here. You actually roll out the dough rather than spread it! One of the very few that I have seen. One of the best I have tried thus far. I posted both a soft dough crust and a crisp dough crust a few weeks ago...

Tonight is spaghetti night at my daughter's request. I just use my old favorite sauce recipe with TJ brown rice spaghetti. It's such a delicious simple meal, but we haven't had it in forever because it's just been way too hot to have sauce simmering on my stovetop for several hours. But my daughter has been begging so I'm finally doing it despite it being 109 today.

Last night my husband ended up marinating one steak in fresh squeezed oranges and the other in lemon and lime juice overnight and then cooking it on the George Foreman. He also attempted to make risotto since it one of my favorites, not bad for the first time even though not super creamy since he used regular long grain white rice. But it was served by candlelight so that made everything taste better.

Tonight we are going to try and make general tso's chicken so it's a Chinese food night tonight.

That's so sweet of your husband! I think we will have Chinese tonight too. I had no ideas until I saw this thread, thanks for sharing. I am going to make Kung Pao chicken.

- Boiled Dilled Baby Garden Potatoes

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...

I wondered if you were having issues with dairy before but didn't have the heart to suggest it, I know you love it so. I'm surprised the dietician only suggested two weeks though. (I believe I've read that you should avoid it for three months before reintroducing, but I could be wrong.)

I haven't tried soy again, don't really have any desire. I like coconut aminoes and thai fish sauce with citrus in any recipe when I want to go to China, Japan or Thailand. :)

Three months seems like a long time, but it isn't, and OMG, it is a pleasure to be able to have it again. Waiting longer may increase the pleasure?

Marilyn, you're too kind! I initially completely cut out dairy when I was first diagnosed for nearly three months then reintroduced it and was fine for ages. Then about a month ago started having serious IBS-like symptoms (that I did not get from gluten at all) so my dietitian wants me to start eliminating things. She feels I am consuming too much raw fruit, too, perhaps. Thankfully she is VERY celiac aware and full of knowledge. Darn it - I was hoping I would not get to this point. But I know without qustion that vinegar hurts. My doctor believes I may have an ulcer as a result of being on NSAIDs. So, now we're starting the elimination process... :angry:

I only got as far as the meat and dessert for tonight. We are having ham for dinner, probably some kind of potato on the side with peach blueberry crumble for dessert.

How were the lemon bars? I've been meaning to look for a recipe for those. it's something my grandmother always made around Chistmas when she was still alive and I've been missing them. I'll have to give that recipe a try.

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
