Bacon! I actually only ate bacon for dinner tonight. Sometimes it's great to be an adult.

Pepperoni with melted cheese and gluten-free pretzels.

and wine. But they were turkey pepperoni, so not quite the abandon of bacon. :P

We had a couple errands to run after work so I quickly made spaghetti with green pepper and sausage. Sauteed the pepper and sausage in a little olive oil, threw in a jar of sauce, and let it simmer while the pasta was cooking.

I "almost" made this...but had purchased Italian sausage with peppers and onions at the deli in a local grocery store. One of the few things I know is safe that I pick up occasionally. Well, after diddling around replacing a string of lights on my Christmas tree, I finally ate at 8:30 with no pasta in sight and no desire to mess up my kitchen either. I actually added some pizza sauce to the sausage, which worked great. It was good but I really would have liked some pasta, too. The glass of wine I had was good, too! tongue.gif

I fasted today until sunset and then I went out and got a frosty from Wendys. It was the only thing that sounded good to me! Besides I will spend the next couple days eating lots. Tommorrow for breakfast/brunch I plan to make (turkey) bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches on Udi's bagels. Then I will spend the day making dairy free pumpkin custard pies and a gluten free cake for Christmas day. Steaks on the grill for a late lunch/early dinner (to keep the kitchen freed up for baking).

Christmas morning I'm making this breakfast casserole(using leftover turkey bacon and leaving out the ham). Then I have to get the lamb in the crockpotand put together my salad.

Both recipes look good. I was going to try a similar crockpot lamb (except with shanks) recipe but yours sounds better! :) Thanks for sharing.

That breakfast casserole sounds like it's to die for! For me I bet it would work well using Jimmy Dean's Sausage Crumbles and Simply Potatoes hash browns (I haven't had those potatoes for a long while but if I recall correctly, I think they're gluten-free...I'd had to read the label).

I decided last night to use some Al Fresco chicken sausage in place of ham. Also I AM using Simply Potatoes and they ARE gluten free. It doesn't say so on the label, but I double checked their website and it says they are gluten free. I have regular old potatoes I could shred, but I decided I want an easy breakfast. The casserole looks like it will come together fast.

Glad to hear Simply Potatoes are gluten-free! I thought they were but I don't think I've bought any since I've gone gluten-free. Who wants to shred potatoes when you can just get them out of a bag! wink.gif

I made gluten-free coffee cake for tomorrow and I will be making a sausage casserole to go with. Everyone is on their own for lunch. Probably sandwiches. For dinner, lemon chicken, plain white rice and green beans. Candy and cookies leftover from Christmas Eve if they want dessert.

Lemon chicken sounds so good. Do you have an easy recipe?

I baked two different recipes of gluten-free Gingerbread and taking those with sugar-free cool whip to my in-laws this afternoon.

What am I cooking tonight? Not a thing :)

I'm outta here to make a vat of mushroom-wine sauce (gluten-free, of course) to go with the London Broil my son is going to grill. Yes, he's been thoroughly briefed on CC. Guess I can pretty easily throw together a tossed salad, too. Dinner will be simple. Not sure what else we'll have but my DIL did buy some baby red potatoes and her father always makes a vat of the yummiest fruits.

This is the recipe but I haven't tried it yet so I don't know if it is good.

I will use sweet rice flour and omit the mint.

Today we had a Christmas brunch. I made pumpkin muffins from a recipe that I found here. http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/63096-pumpkin-muffins/page__p__572914__hl__muffins__fromsearch__1&#entry572914

We also had a wonderful butternut squash soup, mushroom, onion and bacon sorta frittatta, wild rice salad and some cantaloupe. It was delicious!

This came out very good! I did add a bit of Herbamare seasoning to the chicken after it was breaded because I felt like it wasn't enough seasoning. And when I make it again, I will have an extra lemon or two for topping. I had three lemons. They were small and not overly juicy. I used two of them for juicing. I had only enough slices to put one on each piece. I think it would be better if they were covered.

I'm cooking this hot and sour soup recipe to use up all my Christmas dinner turkey leftovers, along with some other things I had sitting around (half a package of tofu, an onion, some dried mushrooms, 3/4 carton of chicken broth, the end of a bottle of soy sauce, etc).

    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.
