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.

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?

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. :)

    • You're welcome! Yes, I too, hate waiting for lab results. Ugh!
    • I understand this is not a doctor's office and that I need proper testing done to rule out Celiac disease, however, I am stuck waiting until November to even see a GI doctor. So I need some suggestions soon on which test to go for first and what to do as I wait. Also do note, I am 28 years old.

      Right now, the most suspecting culprits to my symptoms have been Gallbadder, Celiac disease, and IBS. I have also been recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes and I am obese.  My Ultrasound and CT scan have all come up as normal and no signs of gallstones. However, I was in extreme pain as my upper abdomen was examined during the ultra sound. My white blood cell count also seems to be high at 12,000 but all blood work came back normal for liver and everything else.

      Symptoms included are: diarrhea
      yellow-stools (Sometimes foul smelling but always sink)
      light gnawing pain in area a few inches above belly button
      burning in chest
      sometimes pain below upper right rib cage.
      Tenderness all around the upper abdomen, but more so on the right and center.
      burping frequently after meals
      Gassy
      bloating in abdomen The pains used to come and go for the past few years as something very mild, but then the yellow stools happen at least four months ago and at a constant rate. Everyday it is either yellow or orange.  Sometimes the stools are lose and other times they are not. Two months in, I was finally diagnosed with pre-diabetes and have been having a strict low calorie and non fatty diet.

      So far the upper right pain has subsided but the pain above my belly button would continue. The gassy and bloated feeling would come and go as well. I get severe heart burn after almost every meal. But I felt it especially after eating whole wheat sandwiches or whole wheat pasta. I however don't feel it when I eat a Nature Valley granola bar, or pack of peanut butter crackers. I also had a chicken and vegetable stir fry with soy sauce cooked in that also had little effect on me. A bowl of cereal also made the heart burn act up pretty bad. I sometimes feel numb or light headed after various meals. Especially larger ones. In fact, it seems the more I eat, the worse I feel. But the less in the stomach, the more the pain above my belly button starts to act up.

      It is usually in the morning and afternoon I feel the most with gas and bloating. Especially after any large meals from the previous day. Despite the diet and work outs I have had, nothing has changed the stools. However, taking fish oil pills has greatly reduced the pain in my upper abdomen as well as the pain  in the the area above my belly button. My question now is, is there a very likely chance of this being celiac disease? Should I go on a gluten free diet to test since I Have to wait so long? Also, which test should I ask the doctor for first, as it will take a GREAT deal of time to pay off each one. Colonoscopy, HIDA scan, or endoscopy. 

      Again, I understand this isn't a site to get compete medical advice or to know exactly what my illness is, but I am trying to narrow down the possibility or what is most likely. If this has a chance of being celiac disease, I would rather know sooner than later.
    • Thank you very much for all the info Squirmingitch. The doctor told me as we were talking he was going to order some tests with urine so I don't know why he didn't mark that. Maybe he forgot as we were talking? Duly noted about the bladder Cancer to watch out for too. Doctor said it will take about a week to get the lab results back usually from this lab. The wait will seem like forever I'm sure. Yes I will press to have the other tests done too if this one comes back negative.
    • http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Was your hubs tested for total IgA to see if he's IgA deficient? Read this thread: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/83660
    • Yes, bone density problems are all part of the celiac "umbrella" so to speak and yes, osteoporosis tends to happen more rapidly and at earlier ages than normal when malabsorption is happening. At age 43, it's not normal to have osteoporosis as you describe so that's another part of the jigsaw puzzle. Time to receive blood test results back from the doc are entirely dependent on the particular lab they were sent to. Yep, it's time for you to start keeping a very close check on the PSA in light of your father having had prostrate cancer. I would think you should get a PSA every year. I really would have liked to see him do a urinalysis. With the prostrate cancer your father had, it would seem a close watch should be kept on you for bladder cancer as well. The first symptom of that is blood in the urine but it's generally microscopic before you're ever able to actually see it. That happens to be the 8th most common cancer in men & it's moving up in the rankings. I know this because my hubs had it. The good news is that it's also one of the easiest and most successfully treated provided it's caught early. Certainly starting @ age 50, men should see a urologist every year. BTW, in the last year before I found out I was celiac, I turned up with microscopic blood in my urine. I got it checked out thoroughly since I know about bladder cancer & all tests, ultrasounds, cystoscopy, CT scan etc... turned out fine. The docs were stumped & finally said, "apparently that's just what your body does". Guess what? That's not "just" what MY body does. Once I went gluten-free, I have had no more microscopic blood in my urine. Interesting eh? Before now I didn't realize you are in Canada. The doc didn't do the full celiac panel but I understand the initial screening protocols in Canada only order the TTG but if that comes back negative be sure & press for the full panel as cyclinglady said. We have several here who tested like cyclinglady so it's not a rare thing, it's just not the norm. I'm glad he's doing the B-12 & Ferritin -- those can be big clues.
