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.

Tonight we had some rice crackers and celery with hummus, tapenade, some brie cheese and some red wine.

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.

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:

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?

Hubs threw together some quickie chicken and bean nachos. Worked for me.

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. :)

    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Thanks so much, gluten-free,  in my hypchondriacal panic I saw that website!  It is good to have an endorsement from a celiac.   I remember seeing quite a few reassuring stories in it along the lines that you describe. Funny isn't as because I now feel far less inclined to eat large amounts of carbohydrate now I have cut back a bit.  I think I was totally hooked on sugar.  
    • Celiac.com: Gluten-free not always the way to go
      When people with Celiac Disease eat gluten, their body mounts an immune response that attacks the small intestine and leads to damage to the villi, ... View the full article
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      It is overwhelming at first but step by step you will begin to find food you like - new naturally gluten free 'clean' food you have never tried before, or gluten free substitutes that taste  almost as good or just as good as the food you miss.   Someone told me one just get used to gluten free bread in the end.  But there are some on the market that are so convincing now they have even fooled my gluten eating family.   (On the subject of bread, one useful tip someone gave me early on is if one toasts gluten free bread it tastes much better.  Others may disagree but I think it does - but you will need your own gluten free toaster.... )   I am also finding that as time goes on there seems to be more and more on offer for us in the shops.  The annoying thing here in the UK is one supermarket does superb ready meals for example, another does great gluten free bread, and another sells delicious gluten free Worcestershire Sauce, but it is hard to find one that sells everything you need under one roof at times.   I don't know if it is like that where you live but if it is like this you will get wise to it and end up getting used to stocking up when the opportunity presents itself. Eating out is often challenging but after not eating out for a while when I was healing I have now found a few restaurants, and a couple are chains, that I can trust.     Lastly, it is always good to have some gluten free snacks - fruits, nuts, bars etc, at the ready when the hunger pangs strike and there is nothing there for you.  I still forget and today went to a museum with my son and had to watch him in the cafe eat his cheese and ham toastie and all I had was a cup of tea!   
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Yes, I meant mercury not lead, thank you for the correction. That's what happens when I stay on the computer until late at night.  The symptoms I have now resemble my gluten reaction and I know it's almost impossible that I would be getting glutened. I remember someone here mentioning that he/she had amalgam fillings removed and it helped, but that was few years back. That's why I posted it here. 
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      akohlman--I am exactly 1 month from being diagnosed and still going through cleaning out of all the gluten foods from my life. I have really bad Dermatitis Herpetiformis but other wise I had no reason to think I had something like Celiac Disease. That being said, I TOTALLY understand. For me... its hard to be sick and not feel sick if that makes sense.....   I'm going to make the changes. I'm going to live a gluten-free life but like you... I STILL am devastated. I'm overweight... so obviously I don't have a healthy relationship with food, LOL, so I'm DYING at the idea of never eating Pizza Hut, Chili's Pasta, Red Lobster Pasta, McDonalds, etc. I don't care what anyone says.... that is a HUGE adjustment for me and I'm still reeling from the "loss".   That being sad.... I have 3 children and a husband depending on me and I'll do all I can to lengthen my lifespan so.... Here is to new journeys.   YOU ARE NOT ALONE in your sadness!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
