In Topic: The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Today, 02:43 PM

Last night we had an amazing dinner. Wegmans gluten free pasta with the following ingredients

onions

garlic

thyme

mushroom

green zuchini squash

skinned and seeded tomatoes

When the veggies and pasta was done, I added the pasta to the skillet with the veggies and added a pat of butter like a 1/2 cup of the pasta water and some parm.. IT WAS SO DELICIOUS.

 

Is it bad that the I purposely didn't remind the bf to take his lunch this morning? because now its my lunch!

 

I make a similar meal to that every week and eat it for my lunches while my veggie hating husband is at work, LOL!

 

 

 

That slush idea sounds yummy.  I have always been a fan of the OJ/Vodka slush things, I think they have a name but I forget, LOL.  My aunt always makes them.  I have a kitchenaid ice cream maker attachment and it is basically the same setup with the frozen bowl, just no hand crank.

 

For lunch yesterday I cooked a spaghetti squash, and on top of the "nooodles" it makes, just did up a jarred garlic marinara with some mushrooms.  It is so good, I can't believe I have never made that combination before!  Going into my lunch rotation for sure.  Tonight for dinner will be chicken quesadillas with Udis tortilllas (my store just got them so trying for the first time) and http://johnsoulesfoods.com/ their chicken fajita meat. Need something easy since I am recovering from IVIG yesterday.

I couldn't agree with you more.  If I am going to someone's house I will tell them to just pick me up a good looking Amys dinner that says gluten-free on it and it really simplifies things. They are readily available at most chain grocery stores.  I used to take them to work, and we only had fridges to keep our lunches in, and they all heated up and tasted great when thawed to a refrigerated temperature.  That was before my diagnosis, and after when I discovered my favorite frozen dinners were still okay to eat, I was stoked!

Celiac has turned me into an awesome cook!  I can make all kinds of things for myself now that I used to just go buy.  It also makes me really pay attention to what I put in my mouth, and has pushed me to eat healthier overall.


In Topic: Gluten Free At Fast Food Place?

Yesterday, 01:54 PM

I went to a Jimmy John's sub place the other day. They do much like Chipotle does and prevent CC. You have to order an Unwich and I think the ham sub. I think the beef has gluten in it or is CC'd during processing or something like that.

My husband's work moved to a new location, and there is a Jimmy Johns nearby.  Tried it out and I never thought a lettuce wrap sandwich could be so satisfying, I was pleased.  They move with lightning speed there so I had to make them pause to hear my spiel!  LOL


In Topic: How Do You Mealplan For The Week?

That way we don't waste the corn tortillas, even though they were only $1.39

.........

We also will do a pulled chicken bbq in the crock pot and have it over a potato with a side of sauteed zuchinni (cheap this week, usually make a slaw with this dish)

I do that with tortillas, too.  They do freeze, but in the original flimsy bag packaging, they don't last more than a few weeks.  I freeze small quantities of everything since I cook for two!  Also, may I have that chicken recipe? :D  I do shredded bbq pork in the crock pot.  Just throw in a pork roast, and some bbq sauce, low for 8 hours and enjoy.  I am hungry now.
