Those piggies will be on my short list! Thank you :D

You can get Chebe's at the gluten-free Mall btw. It's the easiest, most versatile, least problematic gluten-free mix (or scratch recipe) I've found with minimal ingredients/additives. And you don't need special equipment to make it, unless you count parchment paper and a fork as special equiipment.

If you use one of those baking sheets with holes in them, the bottom browns nicely, so if you flip what you've baked over to serve, it looks good too.

Really wasn't feeling the whole cooking thing. :ph34r:

I stuffed poblano peppers with a mixture of crab meat, Udi's crumbs, diced green onion, 1 1/2 seeded plum tomatos, serrano pepper, dijon mustard, mayo, an egg, s&p and queso fresco (mexican cheese). Baked for 45 minutes at 375. I ended up with extra stuffing so made baked crab cakes out of them. They were very rich and delicious, I loved them. DP wasn't as impressed. (He doesn't like spicy things.) I told him he needs to suck it up like I do for his grilled pork all of the time. He told me he'd probably like all of the stuffing in a twice baked potato and I'm thinking he's a genius. (I'll probabaly omit the tomatos though, they were just a use it or lose it addition.)

D.H. Birthday today, didn't want to go out and be CC (only 4 wks gluten-free). Veal Marsala w/ mushrooms, mushroom risotto and shallot green beans. Best part was I brought Ice Cream (in lieu of cake) he went to our favorite Thai and brought me Pumpkin Mouse. He even asked to see the ingredients ( it is pre packaged and they just steam bath it so the ingredients label were still on it). What a great day.

Thanks, and I hope you get your appetite back...especially with the holidays coming up. I don't have much of an appetite myself most of the time, so I understand. It seems like I'm ravenously hungry or don't want to eat at all. :blink:

for dinner tonight-

2 slices gluten-free sliced honey ham (can't remember what brand), cheese & fried egg on a toasted & buttered peice of Rudi's multigrain bread.

you're welcome!

your appetite sounds like mine.... some times I'm hungry, most of the time (at least lately) not so much. It's weird for me because I've always been a fairly big eater. So this is definately an adjustment. But at least it's keeping me from re-gaining too much weight!!

Yeah, I'm hoping I have somewhat of an appetite on Thanksgiving/ Christmas/ New Year's, as I'm sure you do, too!I'd like to be able to fill my plate like I used to (which wasn't super- piled up, just full), and eat all of it, and then some pie later :).

kinda glad to know I'm not the only one...

For lunch today: peanut butter and jelly lettuce wraps

First time I tried this--wow, it was darn good! I think I even like it better this way than with bread

A nice hunk of grilled Pacific salmon, sliced radishes, chopped Wickles Pickles and cottage cheese for me, and DP had the Salmon with roasted new potatoes.

I made a batch of Hungarian Kale Soup this weekend http://www.yankeemagazine.com/recipes/search/onerecipe.php?number=18637. Substituted 1/2 lb. chorizo for the brazillian sausage and added 1 diced (skinny) pork chop with bone, added shredded cabbage, chopped celery and carrots. Eliminated the pasta. Yum! I froze about 10 servings of it for lunches. I'm a soup lover and this may be my new favorite soup. :D

Saurkraut and grilled pork with Chebe's sandwich buns and thinly sliced monteray jack cheese. OMG it was delicious.

I've been having a serious craving for cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower lately, so I probably have a vitamin deficit. I wonder which one. K?

And the TURDUCKEN has been "created"!

I love that our food changes with the seasons. No matter how cold it gets, I'll be grateful for an opportunity to eat a creamy soup and brussel sprouts.

Leftovers and more leftovers....might be a long week.

Oh, and the cornbread stuffing was a big hit with son-in-law who usually asks if "it's real or fake". :P

LOL Lisa! :D I love that question from the SI-L.

We had little sweet peppers (yellow, orange and red) stuffed with cheese and drizzled with olive oil, grilled until charred on all sides and the cheese melted, along with little grilled bunless sirloin burgers and potato salad.

Dessert was dark chocolate nuggets dipped in leftover whipped cream from Thanksgiving.

I made Rutabega soup today too with some frozen left over smoked pork. My neighbor from Wisonsin turned me on to Rutabega soup. That's good stuff. :)

    • So far I've had no problems with gluten-free Cherrios and I've been eating them since they started producing the gluten-free line. Generally I will have some reaction to gluten if there is contamination in the product I'm eating. But I'm sure someone has gotten a bad batch or is simply very sensitive to trace amounts of gluten. It's up to each individual to decide whether you want to chance trying them. The article mentioned by squirmingitch sheds light on the problem with anything listed as gluten-free. Contamination can occur at any point in the harvest or processing, and testing may miss it. I also eat Chex, Nature's Path cereals and have tried other brands w/o any problems. I do miss gluten-free Rice Krispies, they made for a nice addition to meat loaf, shame they discontinued the item.
    • Here is another point.  My hubby went gluten-free per the poor advice of his GP and my allergist.  It worked.  A tough first year, but he got well.  Thirteen years later, I got diagnosed with celiac disease.  I was shocked!  😱.   Does he have celiac disease?  We will never know because we can not afford to have him do a challenge.  He refuses and I can not blame him.  He knows he will be very sick!   The point?  I am so lucky that we both can not have gluten.  I never worry about him making me sick or vice versa. We made the house completely gluten free for  1) our health and 2) the fact that our kid started helping in the kitchen. Kids make mistakes and I personally need a safe haven.  She wants gluten?  I buy prepackaged stuff and she takes it to school.  All parties and events at my house are gluten free.  Lots of work, but we stay healthy.  She does not have celiac disease.  When she is preparing for a celiac test,  I send her on the porch to eat cookies or bread or whatever floats her boat.  We travel in a gluten-free RV.  I have five sizes of ice chests.  We just have to be prepared for any event.   How can we live this way?   We love feeling good.
    • Freize is right, you need to think about your environment.   Based on that a study I posted for you, you will note that the patients who were diagnosed with refractory celiac disease and THOUGHT they were diet compliant found that they WERE NOT diet compliant.  How is this possible?   This is way out there, but unless you are growing all your own food, you don't really know if it is gluten free.  In the US, we do have laws to help protect our food supplies (no perfect, but a start).    I can not speak for India.  For example, what about your soy?  It can be contaminated by the farmer as it is often rotated with wheat.  Here is an article by Jane Anderson who has celiac disease.  She is very strict as she has DH (celiac rash), but she cites Trisha Thompson who tests foods for gluton contamination, The gluten-free WatchDog (like Consumer reports).  She found that soy which is naturally gluten free, but can be cross contaminated by wheat: https://www.verywell.com/is-soy-gluten-free-562371 so, start thinking about your food supply. As far as a negative TTG IGA or TTG IGG?  I test negative to both.  Only the DGP IGA has ever been elevated in my blood tests (even repeats), yet I had a Marsh Stage IIIIB on my biopsy.  Have you had a DGP IGG?  (I do not see this in your posting).   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ These additonal celiac tests might help you feel confident that you have celiac disease and not something else that is damaging your villi.  But remember, some  folks have celiac disease even with negative blood.  I am not IGA deficient, so this is an area I have not researched.  Not to mention that some celiac researchers do not think that the celiac  antibodies tests are good for diet compliancy.   I wish I had better answers for you.  Try a grain free, whole foods diet of meats, fish, eggs, and vegetables for a while.  All food prepared by you. Who cooks your food now?  Is your home gluten free?  Cross contamination at home?  Kissing a loved one.  We had a doctor with celiac disease who was getting glutened by her little children who were consuming gluten!  
    • I won't say I will never eat out but I can't see me eating out for the foreseeable future. Even then, I will most likely only eat at a dedicated gluten free place. I am extremely sensitive to the tiniest amount of gluten and it's just not worth the risk to me. Eating out is playing Russian Roulette as far as I'm concerned and I'm not ready to play that game yet.
