Empanadas, empanadas, empanadas!

Wow, they were delicious! My husband ate 5, I had 3 and my son 10 (his were smaller). I used a dough from my recipe "Gluten free apple empanadas". I didn't put sugar in it. I made meat filling (beef, onion, garlic, cumin, oregano, 3 mashed potatoes, red paprika, and salt) and for my son, a vegetarian version (1 small can of vegetarian beans- mashed, 3 mashed potatoes, cumin, oregano, 3 Tbsp. peas from can and 2 Tbsp. of shredded Monterey jack cheese).

Tonight was homemade chick salad with tomato aspic and deviled eggs on a bed of lettuce. It was so suitable for a hot day in May.

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).

Oooh, I did that on my middle finger!!!! The dude at urgent care wanted to put a stitch through my nail. I advised him to use glue if he wanted to live.

Hubs threw out the mandolin and I refuse to buy another one.

Hope you feel better soon. Yes, it is awkward. I was so happy when mine healed to a certain point.

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! :)

marilyn: me and you could totally hang :D i think we smoked a chicken the same day lolz!!

hubby has been frustrated because he was afraid the Big Smoker Grill would make me sick and he bought a smaller bullet one to use - which he hates - ("i can't get the temperature to stay right! rawrrrr!!") so a few weeks ago, he reseasoned the cast iron grates on it and we smoked a pork shoulder. i did not get sick!!! yay!!! so we have been smoking *everything* :D our neighbors are drooly :D might do a salmon this weekend!

DP loves nothing better than smoking, watching sports and drinking beer. We live in the deep south so he gets a bit warped in the summer, the sunshine adds too much heat to the smoker! I really need to buy an umbrellla stand and a SUVP umbrella or some shade cloth for him. That whole chicken was on sale for a little over $6. I had it every day for lunch this week. (Greek salad, rice mac & cheese and smoked chicken, chef salad, smoked chicken on bagel chips and fruit salad. There's still enough left for pizza tomorrow (with pesto) and I'll probably be able to teach the dog a few more tricks with it. (Because it's smoked, I'm okay with using it more than 3-4 days.) He smokes whatever pork is on sale, and what's left over is always good for soup or etc. And yes, our neighbors are torturted too. I buy him some gluten-free beer occasionally for his grill adventures. I used to have to watch him like a halk, it was just nature for him to pour beer on the hunk of meat. He's been a Dennis the Menace, but he's finally got it down.

Way to go on reaseasoning the smoker. He actually bought a new one, but it was an end of season sale at a big hardware chain and got it for $40.

We're smoking duck this weekend. A Kentucky ducky Derby weekend, he says. I got him some Mexican beer to, because it's Cinco de Mayo. Duck is a little more involved, but it is out of this work and Duck Soup is over the top!

Tonight we are making a quinoa salad with kale, tomatoes, probably some garlic and topping it with cooked shrimp. We're also trying out a gluten free salad dressing that claims to go with everything from Kraft. If the dressing fails the taste test we'll use gluten free champagne dressing.

I had a healthy-in-my-own-eyes supper :P

A Glutino English muffin toasted under the grill, with a gluten-free turkey sausage-thing, a tomato, and vegetables on the side. Then I had a Kinnikinnick Banana muffin, chocolate-coated almonds, dark chocolate Cadbury bar...hmm, what else, OH! Chocolate homemade flourless cookies with quinoa.

It was my only meal, so I had to fill myself with SOMETHING :D

Breakfast was a measly (small) bowl of cereal. Yuck.

Tonight we are having quinoa salad with kale, spinach, tomatoes, a basil paste I picked up from safeway, probably some garlic too!

We'll top it off with some shrimp and a new gluten free dressing that's supposed to be good on anything. If the taste test fails we'll use the gluten free champagne dressing.

Think this recipe calls for some Chardonnay :rolleyes:

I thought the flourless chocolate cake tasted like a chewy brownie...

Excellant!

    • Hey there! Welcome to the club you never wanted to be a part of. Boy, you are certainly throwing yourself one heck of a bang up pity party aren't you? PLEASE do not take that as a put down! I don't think there is a single solitary one of us who hasn't thrown ourselves at least 1 pity party. I know I've thrown at least 3. Oh, & crying meltdowns in the grocery store? Every one has been there, done that one too. It's all part of the process just like cyclinglady said. Ravenwoodglass is right on too about how it can mess with your head. Boy! Can it ever mess with your head! You really have been given excellent info. by all who have answered. I want to touch on something that hasn't been addressed yet but you mentioned it and that is kissing. You might call me an old lady as I'm just shy of 60 but I'm also a child of the 60's so remember that when you read what I'm going to tell you. BTW, I'm married to the same person, my only marriage, for 43 years. Anyone who cuts & runs because they have to brush their teeth before kissing you is not worth 2 minutes of your time and you are well rid of them! Be thankful that you have this "screening tool" because it will save you a lot of wasted time. If they won't even give you a chance when they hear about the precautions you have to take then they aren't worth a damn! Imagine someone like that standing by your side when times get tough. You can't can you? That's because they won't and you want a true partner who will support you and hang in there through the challenges we face in life & believe me, you will both face many life challenges.  Cooking. You don't have to be a gourmet. Cook simple. You know how to boil & scramble & fry eggs right? Only takes a couple minutes. Veggies? Aw heck, nuke 'em OR throw them on a baking pan spritz them with olive oil & spices of your choice & stick them in the oven. Smoothies are easy. Fresh fruit is well, fresh fruit - easy - peel it & eat it or just pop it in your mouth. Sweet potatoes can be nuked too & are wonderful for you. Salads are easy. Nut butters are a great source of protein. Karen had some great examples in her post too. Her "attitude adjustment" tips are great as well.  
    • Hi I'm still being tested. Got some blood drawn recently. My rheumatologist suspects celiac. I've been sick for a while with all sorts of symptoms. I've started a gluten free diet as my doctor told me try for 1-2 months to see if it helps. I've already had the blood drawn while I was eating gluten. My question is. Is it normal to have painful digestion and fishers when just recently quitong gluten? I've been gluten free only a mere two days. I know it takes time. But seems a bit worse? Is that normal?
    • I was only asking because when ferritin is low that you can experience hair loss/fatigue etc. even if your other iron levels are in range. This just happened to me so I thought I would share just in case it helps you. Ferritin should be above 50 to be optimal, not just "in range."  I've been on iron supplements and much better now. This may not be your problem at all, but I would have them check your ferritin levels. Low iron or anemia is common with celiac. The ferritin test is measuring how much iron is stored in your body. FYi: Iron binding capacity is really telling you how much protein your liver is making in order to carry that iron around. Usually, iron binding capacity will be higher in the range when iron is low. Edit: Also my blood pressure was low when my ferritin level got very low.
    • Hello I'm happy to join, any help is greatly appreciated as it can be difficult by times for sure. Unfortunately, I have been told my doctor has definitely not been doing anything correctly and very backwards about Alot of things. I live in canada, and there are celiac support groups I have found but I am about 2 hours away from any. I live in a pretty rural area. Although,  I have still received some help from them , they prefer a diagnosis before helping out to much. My doctor has me on a waiting list to see a gastrointestinal specialist but whenever I called her office to inquire about an appointment time I was told there was a very long wait and that I was considered to be a non emergency. So I am waiting to get an appointment. I have seen a dermatoligist for some of my rashes and she said it was dermatitis and gave me different creams for them.  It is frustrating because I don't know how to go about getting a actual diagnosis besides this biopsy. I was told to request a different specialist, but supposedly there is a waiting period for most in our area. 
    • Thanks for all of the replies. I've just found out I'm not getting to see a dietician because of not having a definite diagnosis which is another blow. I've had loads of bloods done but they just say they're all normal. I did have low vitamin D and high parathyroid but it's sorted itself out after a course of high dose vitamin D and they're not checking it again for a year. No chance of getting referred to endocrinology, gastro won't do it and neither will my gp. I've tried giving up coffee and all fizzy juice and it hasn't made a difference. I'm exhausted and scared and still have no clue what to do next. My gp has zero experience dealing with this type of thing - last time I was there she said it could be because I've restricted my diet too much and I should eat more gluten-free replacement products - everything I've read online says this is the worst thing to do! I'm asking for a copy of the last blood results this week so I can go through them myself but other than that I'm pretty stuck.
