I sauteed onions and mushrooms in olive oil, added some diced turkey breast and some turkey stock(leftovers from TG)thickened the juice with corn starch and then added some fresh spinach at the end. Served over brown rice spaghetti with a dash of grated parmesan cheese. Yum!! The pasta was good too not too mushy like I've heard it can be.(my first try with the pasta) It actually was wonderful. Lundgren's brand gluten free brown rice spaghetti.

I had a seafood salad for dinner - I eat this pretty much ever night.

Muscles sauteed in gluten-free soy sauce, ginger, sugar, lemon juice, olive oil, coconut milk, mint leaves, thrown on top of a fresh salad with carrots, broccoli, lettuce, cucumber, and a tablespoon of 1 parts homemade mayonnaise 1 parts plain yogurt as dressing. So good!

Also had a homemade ayraan to drink (salty yogurt drink)

Well the Tinkyada pasta was a hit! It tasted really good and my bf said it tasted just like regular pasta. Yay! Gluten-Free chicken meatballs from TJ's was good also. I improv'd a dessert as well - chopped up two green apples, put them in 2 ramekins, topped with cinnamon, b.sugar, and a pad of butter. Put them in my toaster oven at 350 while the pasta was cooking and left them going while we ate, then took them out when we wanted them. Nice lazy dessert :P

I made turkey soupfrom all the left over Thanksgiving turkey and biscuits from gluten free bisquick. The soup I have made before--it was super yum and perfect for a cold day. The biscuits I made for the first time. They were the best gluten-free biscuits I have made but I probably won't make them again. They had an eggy taste (I've never put egg in regular biscuits before) and the texture was a little gritty from the rice flour. I'll keep looking for the perfect gluten-free biscuit recipe.

We were out all day too. Early lunch at Olive Garden for SIL's birthday. They all had cake and ice cream. Daughter had some gluten-free cookies and ice cream. I tried a bit of a cookie. Tasted oddly burnt to me. I can't remember the brand but I think I read here that they are sold at Starbucks. I've just never seen them at Starbucks.

After that we went to Target where the three of us (husband is home) shared part of a bag of popcorn (there is still some left) and an order of nachos. So we didn't want a big dinner.

Daughter and I got salad bar from the grocery store and then I made toasted cheese sandwiches, wrapping them in Release foil so I didn't get our gluten on her sandwich. I made them by making toast in the toaster, slathering both sides of the bread with melted butter, putting American cheese in the sandwich and then baking for 10 minutes which was just enough time to melt the cheese.

My adventures in meat continue with a pot roast recipe that looks easy enough that I can do it: http://simplyrecipes...ipes/pot_roast/

I'm making it in a crockpot - I didn't have any red wine so instead I used 1/4c beef stock 1/4c sherry and I added 1 tsp cinnamon as one commenter suggested (I love cinnamon!). This is my first pot roast ever so we'll see how it turns out! I also plan to add carrots and new potatoes in the last hour.

HAWAIIAN HAYSTACKS. Man I love my crockpot. Makes working and being your stereotypical housewife so much easier.

Recipe? Heck yes, I will post it...

Cut the chicken up into small cubes and toss into the crockpot.Chop up half an onion and toss that in. (The yellow onion that is out on the top shelf.)There are some cream of chx soup mixes in the cupboard. Take two of those (they are in little box like things) and put them in the crockpot.Add the rest of the open soy milk carton and the rest of the open rice milk carton to the soup and chicken mix. Add about an eighth of a cup of arrowroot starch.Spice with Salt, Pepper, Poultry Seasoning (not too shabby on the poultry seasoning)Turn crockpot on high, and then when you leave this afternoon turn it on low.(Don't forget to stir now and then... Especially after you put the arrowroot in)

Sorry I copied the recipe from my email when I sent it to my husband so its got more notes that I don't care to take out. (For the record you do not have to use soy milk, I personally prefer rice milk, but I had just a little bit left in the carton so I said use that too. Sorry I don't have exact measurements... I rarely do)

Started on this journey w/ my 9 yr old son after a bout w/ the flu in the fall of 2009.
2 neg celiac blood tests, mine was also neg. No endo done. Son had x-ray, showing severe constipation. Son has latex allergy. KP for both of us.
Long family history of bowel problems, auto-immune and all sorts of cancers. My G-mother informed me that she was put on a gluten free diet after she had my mom (1950's), of course she stopped when she felt better. She has had problems ever since I can remember.
So here we are! I do have my son's Dr to thank for even bringing up celiac! Thank You Dr.B!
My adult daughter also has been helped by eating gluten-free.
