where do u get the quinoa flat bread?

I make my own, almost everyday.

Quinoa Flat Bread

1 cup Quinoa flour ( you can switch it up with other flours)

1/2 teaspoon Xanthan gum

pinch of salt

3/4 cup water

Mix it up, it will be like thick porridge.

Use parchment paper on a cookie sheet and with wet fingers pat and spread dough into flat breads (1/4 inch).

I usually make four for burgers.

Top with salt or herbs and bake at 400 for about 15 to 20 minutes.

For burgers I add about a tablespoon baking soda and pat them about 1/2 inch thick and bake at 350 for about 20 to 30 minutes. When I take them out of the oven I cover them so they are not too crispy. Then I use a serrated tomato knife to slice them open.

It's been snowing like crazy since yesterday and I was out shoveling so wanted something to warm me up.

Oven Mac and Cheese and Broccoli

And I may make peanut butter cookies for later.

Hamburgers in lettuce "buns" and homemade oven fries. Bing cherries for dessert.

This was such a great idea I decided to have burgers tonight. It never dawned on me to just wrap it in lettuce. I paired it with some tater tots. I imagine when I'm craving my sugar fix later I'll have some of my canned peaches from last fall. (I have no fear of cc because I am insane about kitchen cleanliness, especially when canning.)

Since it's so cold out we decided to make chicken noodle soup. It's also one of our simple, don't have to stand in the kitchen meals.

I took the chicken and browned it in olive oil on the stove, then cut it up and added it to a pot with salt, pepper, garlic, onion and enough water to make the amount of broth we want. Let that simmer for about 20 min. until it tasted like chicken broth instead of water then added some chopped baby carrots and kept simmering it. Meanwhile made some pad thai rice noodles. When it was time to serve put the noodles in the bowl and then added the soup.

It really hit the spot tonight.

Soup does sound pretty good. I made stock from my leftover Thanksgiving turkey so all I have to do is pop that in a pot and add veggies and noodles. It's a great way to simplify winter soup.

That does look good! Can you get just the noodles? I always see kits to make a meal without the meat with the seasoning packet in it. Is that what you mean? Or do you buy just the rice noodles? I've never seen JUST THE NOODLES. Will have to look for that.

Yes you can get just the noodles. Mine were Annie Chun's brand.

I have seen rice noodles in the grocery store but if you have an Asian store near you, they will be downright cheap.

On our most recent visit to an Asian store we got eight different kinds of noodles including cellophane, green bean, sweet potato, mung bean, green pea - they are so inexpensive and lovely and, best of all, gluten free.

That makes our 16* F look like a heat wave.

Tonight was lamb gravy over rice, a total comfort meal with lots of carbs and calories :D

Yep! The MINUS 37 does not include windchill which can make it feel far worse. The coldest temperature we had was -51F and with windchill -65F. Not so good.

I know - sometimes we think we are quite insane. We cannot wait to move to Croatia! The Mediterranean climate is certainly a far cry from this frigid barren giant ice cube!

In northern Alberta. The funny thing is, nothing shuts down - everyone is expected to continue going to work, school, whatever. Our vehicle tires become square and thump when driving until they warm up; skin can freeze in 90 seconds. It can be downright dangerous! Blech. :angry:

    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".  
    • Thanks cyclinglady & manasota! I appreciate it. I came to give an update...... I'm still 99% itch free. I get a "place" like a bug bite once in a while that itches and I just use the prescription steroid cream on it & that takes care of the itch. My rash is healing up rapidly everywhere. Almost clear skin now! Yaaaaayyyyyyyyyy! Now for a rundown of the "treatment". For 20 days I took a 100mg doxycycline twice a day. Then we upped it to two 100mg doxy twice per day. I took those for 5 days & made rapid progress and the itching stopped. The doxy was getting my tummy though. It was getting really rough despite my eating yogurt. So on day 6 and day 7, I took two 100mg doxy in the am but in the pm I just took 1 of them. On day 7, I was nauseous for hours on end. So since I was still doing well without itching and the rash was healing everywhere, I decided to cut back some more. On days 8, 9, & 10 I have only taken two 100mg doxy in the am and none at night. I'm doing good and my tummy is much, much happier! No more nausea!  I'll update as things go along.
    • Many things can damage the small intestine besides celiac disease: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ Happily, I can share that I became a Great-Aunt this week for the first time  to a charming little boy. Sadly, my lovely 19 year old niece was diagnosed yesterday with Crohn's.  She had so many symptoms of celiac disease, I was sure she had it.  Actually, I was hoping that she'd have it, because Crohn's can be much worse.  At least there is a "cure" or known trigger for it -- gluten!   Anyway, your daughter might be suffering from something other than celiac disease.  It is possible.  It could be a food intolerance (e.g. milk).  My niece has suffered for years with periodic episodes of abdominal pain, vomiting, etc.  She doesn't have all the "classic" Crohn's Disease symptoms either, yet a recent pill cam revealed a lot!  Her endoscopy was normal.  Celiac panel normal.  Gallbladder scan normal (non-functioning gallbladder is a family curse).  My heart goes out to her, but at least we know what we are dealing with.  Will she ever get celiac disease?  It could happen. Keep advocating, Mom.  That's what I kept telling my SIL.  I also provided my SIL  a family health history tree that each GI was happy to receive.  Unfortunately, no one has had Crohn's in the family.  But, at least it allowed him to test my nieces gallbladder and for celiac disease (a full panel,  mind you).   It would not hurt to get a second opinion.  
    • That uncle bens 10minute brown rice with the gluten free table on the box, i been going through hell these last few days, this shit is Not gluten free its contaminated
