Jamaican curry goat. I took some liberties and added chopped carrots, fresh okra and taters. I think the bone marrow is good for us. If not, it still tastes really good. :D

Taco salads with refried beans and rice on the side.

How do you make your taco salads? I would love to make them but don't know how to do it dairy free. I have used McCormick taco seasoning in the past but now I am dairy free and can't use that anymore. What do you use for the shells/chips? Do you just omit the cheese?

Yes I omit the cheese and do lots of other toppings instead. I use corn chips or shells or corn tortillas baked in the oven. You can make little cups out of Mission corn tortillas by coning them in muffin tins or you can make corn shell shreds by cutting into strips, spraying with oil and baking until crispy. I mostly just start with a bed of lettuce, add taco seasoned beef OR Chili and other toppings: Shredded carrots, avocado or guacamole, salsa or tomatoes, olives, beans, rice, red bell peppers, etc. Put chips or broken shells around the edge to use to scoop up meat and toppings. There's no right or wrong way to do it.

I season my meat by eye--I just kind of know how much of each spice to put on and taste to make sure it's right. I've been doing it for years so I can't tell you how much I use of each spice but here is a basic recipe that is pretty similar to what I do: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/taco-seasoning-i/detail.aspx

Found some gorgeous leeks in the store so we are having Vichyssoise (but I am serving it warm, not cold). Maybe drizzle with some pumpkinseed oil and sprinkle with spicy pepitas.

Warm challah bread (as per Simona's recipe).

Strawberries with balsamic glaze.

Last night we had poblano peppers stuffed with smoked chicken, sauted mushrooms, green onions, Rotel, and Fresco cheese with baked winter squash.

Tonight we had marinated grilled pork steaks with homemade BBQ sauce, romaine salad and roasted sweet potatoes. A plus for last night, B plus tonight. (But the pork steaks were on sale 2 for 1 and dp found 2 for $2.00.) I love it when we cook at home for less than it costs to go to Mickey D's! :D

Another bad pain day for me so did not get much done in the kitchen. :( Having the rest of the vichyssoise soup, falafel chips and hummus. Well, at least I made something today!

Tomorrow the plan is to have seared duck breast with sour cherry gastrique.

Ribs. DP had salad and ribs. I am so off salads for awhile. But I prepped something to stuff poblano peppers tomorrow. (Sauted scallions, mushrooms, left over Rotel & some left over cooked winter squash with shredded smoked chicken. (He used the new smoker again yesterday.) Tomorrow I'll prep the peppers, stuff them after I add shredded and crumbled cheese. Sometimes the weird stuff you make with leftovers ends up being insanely good. We shall see... if not, it'll be a lesson learned...

The latin food market only charged me $1 for four nice sized pablano peppers!

We have no latin market here but our store FINALLY got in poblanos for the first time ever! We usually must buy them in the city three hours away. Only $1 for four? That is four times cheaper than I paid. But I was so excited to see them I just had to do it. We are doing Mexican Thursday and cannot wait.

A bit on the rich side but the past few days have been far less so. :D

I don't know why poblanos are so cheap at that market. Red peppers are $1 each there, so I pick the prettiest, biggest one. That is used for dipping strips in hummus (a doctor friend told me that's one of the best raw veggies you can eat, full of antioxidants). The poblano peppers are sooooooo good roasted or stuffed. Our dinner turned out great tonight and was just enough food. (Four left over, so I have some for lunch or dinner sides. I sliced two of them in half and cut vee shapes in the other two for stuffing. The Latin market is open air, so there may be flies or lizzards on them when I purchase them. (Trying to make you feel better about the price...)

Enjoy your Mexican night. We're probably having Tiny burgers tomorrow.

I worked in a cafe in my teens. "Tiny" weighed in at about 330 lbs. and loved a burger with ham, olives, cheese and toasted bun. We had 1/3 lb. burgers there. And big buns. (I had big buns then too.)

I like petite grilled sirloin burgers with Tiny's toppings in a lettuce wrap. So waa laa teeny gluten-free Tiny burgers. Lettuce and olives constitute a vegetable, right? :D We love carmelized onions on them too!

Tonight was baked french fries, baby shrimp, and lovely homemade cocktail sauce. For dessert, polished off a pack of M&Ms.

    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      only the first one is a celiac test.  and you need the rest of them run.  What country are you in?
    • Second Panel has come back...advice?
      If you follow the gluten-free diet correctly, without being paranoid about it either......your DGP will drop because you won't be eating the food that makes it rise.  I think having a gluten-free house is a great idea because it allows you to relax in your own home. As for reading labels all the time, I have a few comments on that one.  In the beginning, and depending on just how much processed foods you plan on eating, it is a good idea to get into the habit of reading labels.  You learn how to do that correctly from experience.  However, in 11 years gluten free, I have never once seen any processed food I have bought that changed their ingredients. I'm sure it can happen but I've never seen it. Usually, with higher end brands, they never do that because if the product is a success, they don't mess with it.  I can't speak for generic or store brands because I do not buy them. I do not eat a lot of processed foods either. If you are buying a product specifically geared towards the Celiac population and is certified gluten-free, you do not have to check the label unless you have other food intolerance's. Glutino and the other companies which market a gluten-free line of products will not change their ingredients and put something in there we cannot have. Whole Foods Market Gluten Free Bakery line....same thing.  They are all dedicated facilities that make food for Celiac's and are not a worry. I am from New England and buy B & M baked beans, which are gluten free. They are a New England company and haven't changed their recipe for years and years...in fact, maybe never.  Those beans are an institution around here and they will not change their ingredients that have been popular for a very long time.....they have been around since my great-grandmother's time. I buy the basic ones without the added flavorings like onion, etc. I can't speak for every flavor they produce because I eat only the basic beans. But I no longer check the label....don't have to. The company specifically told me they don't mess with success and would not change ingredients. Supplements are something you need to read labels on every time but food items are a little different and you will become very good at understanding the whole thing the longer you do it. It becomes second nature. I am very happy you are on your way to a much healthier life! 
    • Nation's First Free Food Pantry for People with Food Allergies or Celiac Disease
      Kansas is wheat country, and like the rest of America, Kansans are generally not gluten-free. That means the food in their charity food pantries are not usually gluten-free. View the full article
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      This is a link that will explain sreun panels for infants under 2 years of age. http://www.thepatientceliac.com/2013/04/18/update-on-celiac-disease-screening-in-infants-and-toddlers/ The author of that is a doctor, has celiac herself, and is a member of celiac.com. Here is a link that tells you about her: http://www.thepatientceliac.com/about-me/   This link will also give you information: http://www.beyondceliac.org/living-with-celiac-disease/info-for-parents/testing/ Quoting from it in part: Celiac Disease Testing in Children Under 3 Blood tests are not always accurate in very young children. If your child is less than 3 years old, you may be advised to see a gastroenterologist instead of relying on blood tests results.
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      That was not a full celiac blood panel that was done. Plus, as I understand it, at that age the DGP is more likely to be high rather than the others. Here is the full celiac blood panel: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
