How about while we are on vacation soon? Then when we get back you will be settled nicely and can have a lovely meal waiting for us. :)

Not exactly what I had in mind. :lol:

Most dental work, had an extraction yesterday. (FUN!!!) I picked up some of that Bob's Red Mill hot cereal which is pretty good doctored up. I've been adding baby food bananas and caramel sauce. Instead of some prepackaged junk though tonight I'm getting all adventurous and making my own caramel sauce. I wonder how many pounds of sugar it'll take to get it right. :D

Just take it slow and add whiskey or bourbon.

Or skip the caramel and go straight to the whiskey or bourbon...

I just cooked sticky rice topped it with my own sweet and sour chicken. I took a rotisserie chicken and pulled the meat off the bone, put it all in a pan, a can of pineapple, and a can of water chestnuts, Topped it off with gluten free sweet and sour sauce. Heated it until it simmers.

We had pizza with smoked duck, onion and greek olives. It should have been good, but we smoked the duck with orange sauce and it made for a really wierd taste combo.

Dear Wigglebutts (dog) was extraordinarily pleased because once we started picking the duck off, the pizza tasted good, and she LOVES duck.

So we had Friday pizza night with an ecstatic Wigglebutt. (Not her real name, but should have been.) At the end of the day, I can't ask for more than that. It was worth weird pizza. She felt like a slum dog millionare according to DP. (Wigglebutts is a rescue.) :D I'm still not sure who rescued who. She really helps the happiness factor. I would have been distraught that my pizza was a failure before I got Wigglebutts. Now we're all going to bed happy.

Chopped off a piece of right (dominant) thumb yesterday on my mandoline so am not cooking. DANG IT! Amazing how much we take our thumbs for granted. Makes things tricky (like this typing which is taking ages).

I hope that heals up quick for you. My husband is paranoid about my mandolin and is convinced I'm going to eventually cut something off with it. Sounds to me like a perfectly good reason to eat out for a few days. B)

I'm surprised I haven't done it before! Anyway, there are no safe places to eat out. We tried one last night but the employees had no clue about celiac, gluten, allergies, etc. so we just returned home. Then we go on vacation Wednesday! :D

Our small town literally has only fast-food places. That is it. We drive 3 hours to the city when we want to eat out at great high-end places. Thankfully I love to cook so it is rarely an issue. :)

I have three 9 year old boys in my house. We are eating whatever I find in the freezer since I can't get rid of the two that aren't mine. Hubs is on the golf course in 100 degree heat so there's no relief (or trip to the store) in sight.

I just fed them the last of the retried beans and corn tortillas. They'll be chewing on my ankle next.

I've got to get a new plan for boys that are rapidly getting bigger than me.

Lol! I got a kick out of your post, prickly. My mom always fed us pancakes. My brothers would eat over 10 of them. One is 6'6", the other is 6'2. We're in our 50's now, but that brought back some good memories. We all loved split pea soup with ham or sausage too. She made huge pots of pea soup. That's a love or hate thing though.

DP smoked a chicken today, just the way I like it. No sauce. Just mesquite chips and coal.

We had that with Greek salad and Glutino parmesan garlic bagel chips. WalMart is carrying them! Stonyfield Chocolate ice cream for desert.

Yesterday he smoked spare ribs I'd marinated overnight in papaya, cinnamon and brown sugar, then gave him a mop sauce of organic apple cider vinegar, minced jalopeno pepper, parprika and water, reduced. I had roasted root vegetable salad, he had supermarket potato salad. The ribs were fabulous! :)

Grilled a trout and some corn on the cob tonight. For some really stupid reason I can't fathom I touched the foil and have a rather large and painful blister right on the end of my right index finger. <_<

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • 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".
