well, tonight was supposed to be: white turkey chili (cooked turkey in the freezer, also i make (sort, soak & cook) batches of white beans from dried beans and freeze them. something in the canned beans doesn't like me.)

but, the whole house (except me - haha) has a stomach bug and doesn't want anything to eat....

but, hey: i made homemade raviolis the other night!!! my kid got me a pasta machine for Christmas and we broke it in. they turned out AWESOME <a little ugly, thinking of getting a ravioli mold lolz) delicious and delicate pasta. i used the bette hagman recipe for the dough. the stuff is bulletproof. 3 cheese filling. yummmmmzzzzzz.. i am thinking potstickers and pierogies in my near future.... yeh!

Fried chicken strips (sweet rice flour)

Mashed potatoes

Fruit salad

I guess The Kid liked them, he ate all but 3 pieces and told me I should make them more often!

Btw you need 2x the seasoning using rice flour v. Wheat.

Yes, I did fried chicken tenderloins last night dipped in egg and herbed breadcrumbs, to which I added lots of salt, pepper and some parmesan cheese and dried garlic, and it was just about right (and I am not a "hotted up food" kind of person.) Also made a pasta salad with garlic, feta, kalamata olive, red onion, parmesan and herbs, with some Armenian cucumber spears on the side.

It makes me laugh when I look at this thread. Most 'ordinary" folk would not realize that this was a gluten free thread :lol:

Yum! I love steak...if only I could eat it every day.

We are having leftovers. Fortunately, leftovers are just BBQ pulled pork that was cooked in a slowcooker all day. I use the McCormick's pulled pork seasoning pack, then add a bit more brown sugar to put it on the sweet side. Then we're going to have honey-roasted baby carrots and a Caesar salad.

For dessert - purple cows. (Vanilla ice cream with Faygo grape pop)

We had much of the same tonight except I added steamed broccoli to the mix. The blueberry ketchup is amazing! It is almost like a savoury jam that would go so well with wild duck or venison, too.

Okay...I've been thinkin' this for a while now... you and your hubby must weigh five thousand pounds by now. :angry::unsure::P;) ...or do you secretly eat Rice Check for dinner. :P

:lol::lol::lol:

Funny! Sometimes I do have Chex for breakfast! We eat whatever we want but in moderation - that is the key. We eat on smaller plates and I cook things in a very healthy way whenever possible. We eat a lot of raw fruit and vegetables and an incredibly varied diet. I could easily cook three meals a day for an entire year (actually, longer) without doubling up on one single dish even once. But we love variety! :D And I think that is important. We never get stuck with boring meals except maybe the odd breakfast.

We both do need to lose about 20 lb admittedly and are working towards it. We both exercise daily and try to make wise choices throughout the day. That does not always happen as I am a professional recipe tester and make some pretty delectable things frequently in addition to what I cook for us.

I also took Nutrition in university so our meals are usually balanced (at least throughout the day).

We are in for a major treat Friday night - will post later. :)

Sunshine burgers (barbeque flavor), okinawa yams (purple) and brussel sprouts. The last 2 dishes were topped with Earth Balance dairy/soy free buttery spread. Actually the whole thing was a 'leftovers' frozen dinner from a few weeks ago. I'm running out of those leftovers frozen dinners. So I'll need to cook again soon.

We actually ended up having a discussion about how gluten-free flours had a better flavor than wheat flour and he commented that what we were eating now was so much better than before gluten-free.

Got brave enough to make some mac & cheese to go with my grilled chicken. If I didn't make it myself I wouldn't have guessed it was gluten free. Maybe this isn't so bad after all. :D

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
