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.

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.

    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
    • So ok, I get the pain/bloating thing, but it still feels so crazy. But my god, I look 6 months preggers after dinner and 4 months the rest of the time. How long will this last?! I have not gained any weight but have to hide me belly now. I can hardly breath! Omg, that does take me back to pregnancy.  I had "acute marked focal duodenditis" a few weeks ago and an elevated DGP. the pain sometimes makes me seriously think I must be bleeding somewhere. It is actually worse then 3 weeks ago. Although many of the other glutening symptoms are finally vanishing. Even my mid and lower back is tender to touch. Sometimes it burns, aches or like someone is stabbing me in my side. My ribs hurt and everything is tender.  I am on protonix and fish oil. I have a prn for xanax which helps the pain (off market use for muscle relaxant).    I am fair skinned and notice a red under-the-skin discolored rash that comes and goes on my upper stomach. Sometimes it travels down one side. Not itchy. Almost like I can actually see the inflammation under my skin.  1) when will I stop looking knocked up?  2) Any other fair-skinned folks notice a purpleish-red rash on your bellies? It mostly goes away and comes back, which I tske to be a good sign.
