I can't imagine not liking pork chops! But then I am a carnivore. :D Have you ever brined pork chops before? It takes water, salt and maybe a touch of maple syrup and it makes all the difference (just google for recipes - they are dead easy). I like to throw in a vanilla bean and juniper berries into my brines but you do not have to.

Do you have ketchup, brown sugar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce? If so, you can make an easy sauce using those things as well as a bit of onion powder you mention (fresh onions are better, though). What all do you have in your fridge??

Have you ever made risotto? Another easy thing that is restaurant quality. Have you heard of Hasselback potatoes? They are also very simple but look and taste impressive. I posted a recipe for them on here somewhere. Then all you need to do is heat up some frozen peas and season well.

This is like a puzzle? I would choose...salt, pepper, onion powder and paprika....dust the combined ingredients and fry in the olive oil.

(Olive oil really needs to be fresh - old is nasty :blink:)

Side: Baked potato, rice or any fresh veggie.

Oh, Oh, Oh......we always dip our pork in apple sauce.

Last time I had pork I just fried it up with a little salt and pepper, but I <3 pigs. I fried a sliced apple until lightly golden and turned it into an apple in caramel sauce. Hasselback potatoes are awesome. They are super easy but look fancy and always impress. You might earn yourself a footrub even if he doesn't like the piggie.

I would say all of the above. And butter. But I'm an overachiever. And maybe lay off the pork chop sales from now on...

Holy crap what an awesome idea!!!! Those look so cool!

I bet the hasselback potatoes (minus the bread crumbs) would be really good with sweet potatoes.....

They are good. I just switch some of the ingredients up.

Actually, I almost never user bread crumbs for Hasselbacks. I insert garlic and bay leaves in between slices and cover with cheese and scallions. They are so good!

Do you have a grill or barbecue? Grilled pork chops are so wonderful. Especially after brining!! :D Another idea is roasting seasoned chops (in a cast iron skillet - if you do not have one, it is a must for so much) in the oven with grapes and onions (chopped). They all roast together and become caramelized and sticky. So good with apricots, too.

    • gluten free and celiac worsens
      Vitamin deficiencies may delay healing. Ask your doctor to test for deficiencies!  Many Celiacs have poor absorption for an extended period of time and their vitamin stores get depleted.  Some vitamins can't be stored and must be absorbed every day. Yet with poor absorption, eating enough to make up for a deficiency is very difficult.   Vitamin deficiencies can cause other health problems.  CyclingLady had anemia  due to a vitamin B12 deficiency.  I had a niacin deficiency that caused pellagra.  A deficiency of vitamin D causes depression.  Vitamin A deficiency causes nightblindness.   Check with your doctor!  
    • Coping with gas!?
      Activated charcoal capsules might help.  Try avoiding dairy products and cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower) because they cause a lot of gas to be produced during digestion.  Charcoal chemically absorbs some of the gas.   Hope you feel better soon.
    • Coping with gas!?
      Hi everyone,  I hope you're all having a better Tuesday than me :P. So after nearly 2 years of knowing that I am most likely Celiac, I have narrowed down my reactions to gluten into three categories. 1. When I realize I accidently ate a significant amount of gluten. Symptoms are pretty immediate and almost identical to the stomach flu- vomiting, terrible stomach pain, body aches, lower back and knee pain, headache and stiffness, diarrhea. This will usually last about 24 hours before I can start trying to eat food again. 2. When I realize I ate a small amount of gluten (i.e. a hidden ingredient in something). The most prominent symptom here is a burning pain in my lower abdomen.  3. When I know I must have eaten something off but cannot identify it. This is usually a more mild version of 1 and 2. Mostly nausea, tiredness, stomach discomfort, and a ridiculous amount of terrible smelling gas.  Today is a number 3 day. It has felt like my stomach has been constantly churning all day. I keep on feeling like I'm finally going to poop but then it's just gas. Just like the rest of my symptoms, I have absolutely no idea what to do for this! Are there any products you guys could recommend for settling my stomach and relieving the gas? Also, if you have any suggestions for #1 and 2 I would so gladly appreciate it! Doctors have been thoroughly unhelpful with symptom relief. "Just don't eat gluten" is their suggestion. If only they knew how it feels to get glutened... Thanks guys! Kristen 
    • Gluten ataxia?
      I have Celiac Disease and Diabetes.  Sounds to me like you're experiencing a low blood sugar episode.  Did anyone test your blood glucose level during your hospital visit?   When I get low, I get the drunk-wonky vision, too.  After going gluten-free, I found I had to eat more often to avoid those crashes.  I sometimes wake to a crash just like you did.  Have honey or other sweet next to bedside just in case.  If you get too low you will pass out. Low cost blood glucose meters are available at drug stores.  I suggest you get one just to rule low blood sugar out.    Many blessings
    • Celiac - Not yet diagnosed but feel like I'm dying.
      Hi Dylan I just wanted to join SLLRunner in welcoming you to the forum and yes, do ask to be tested for Celiac and Chrons. My nutritionalist told me that celiac disease is a great mimicker of many illnesses which I think must make a doctor's job all the harder when it comes to diagnosis.  For many of us it took us  a long time to get a diagnosis - for about eight years before my own diagnosis I had ulcers,  odd migraines and hallucinations on waking, anxiety, elevated blood protein but no obvious cause for it, anemia, numb hands and arms in the mornings, and eventually the abdominal pain and severe diarrhea. It was all scary stuff but  it was only when I got the last two symptoms, for six weeks, that I was tested for celiac disease (for the protocol here in the UK is that if you have a new gastric symptom for more than six weeks you should have further investigations).  I still wonder if I hadn't had that gastric pain and diarrhea whether my doctors would have even thought it was celiac related? After all you have been through it is not surprising that you are feeling depressed.  A lot of people feel very depressed and anxious before their diagnosis.  You are doing the right thing seeing a new doctor, and hopefully you are just around the corner from getting some long awaited answers.   Keep us posted.  You will find  some great advice here and support during your journey.  All the very best.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
