Nice, Easy Breakfast

My mother sent me a newspaper clipping of a whole bunch of things you can do with corn tortillas. This morning I made one of those recipes. You warm the tortillas (3, because there are 3 of use) in the microwave until soft (40 seconds). Then you gently fold them into a muffin tine mold so that they are flauted. Then you crack an egg into each one. Then you sprinkle on salt and pepper and...

Awesome Cheep Cheep Dinner

I'm cheep cheep when it comes to quick and easy dinners for kids. My son LOVES this and he isn't gluten-free. I take the chub spiced sausage and cook in a saucepan. I then add sloppy joe mix to it and serve it over rice with a salad and milk. The kids really really enjoy this. The spiced sausage gives it a richer flavor than just straight ground beef.   I still haven't tried the yellow ...

gluten-free Yellow Cake Idea

A yogurt company is trying to market yogurt as being a substitute for mayonaise. I got to thinking...whoa! Hold on to your hats! There is this yellow cake recipe that uses a cup of mayo in it. The only reason I don't make it very often is because mayo is kinda expensive if you use a cup at a time. So, perhaps I could try substituting my homemade yogurt into the recipe instead of the mayo? ...

More Mexican Food!

Last night my son and I went over to my ex-aunt-in-law's house (how's that for a tenuous connection!) and we had fish tacos out on the patio with a fire in the fire pit. There are some things that are pretty cool about Arizona in February!   I've been offered the job of English director and my second job as a tutor with a local tutoring company. That's really exciting. I told them that I'...

Yogurt

The homemade yogurt came out great. Every one loves it. I added nutrisweet so that it wasn't so bitter. I also added gelatin so that it would be firm. My son, 1.5, just smacked his lips in joy! What a cutie! The divorce isn't going amicably. My soon to be x is crazy. He called the police (there are not cusody orders) because he say's I'm crazy and angry. Well, I'm certainly angry, but...

Cheap gluten-free Dinner For Single Parents

Okay, so 85% of the time I like leftovers and easy-to-make dinners because of the whole working single parent thing. Tonight I out did myself with nachos. There's that Mexican food again. Yeah for Mexican food! So, I figure a bag of tortilla chips on a tray sprinkled with cheese under the broiler for 3 minutes is pretty easy. Then I dress it up with a can of microwaved refried beans and diced...

Rancho Preparado Marinade

DH had the kids on Friday night so I went over to a friend's house for Mexican food and drinks. The woman preparing the food was so funny. She knew I was allergic to wheat and everytime she used the corntilla (made-up word) fork on the flour tortillas she'd swear at herself and throw the fork into the sink. She went through at least 10 forks!   They went to the Ranch Market to pick up the ...

Pot Roast Forever... And Ever... And Ever...

Good evening all,   Today was a good day. We had professional development meetings all day and the boss took us out to lunch. It was at a sports bar. Lots of burgers, sanwiches, deep fried everything, etc. I had nachos. They were really good. They had real cheese on them and fresh salsa on the side. I couldn't ask for anything better. I was aprehensive about going out at first, but hey,...

Dinner For 01/12

I invited over my co-worker for dinner. She's a ball. I late 50s-something widower from New York via East Germany. I made Spanish tortilla with eggs and potatos, then served a green salad and mint tea. Just a simple dish but everyone seems to like it!   Spanish tortilla:   Slice 4 fist sized potatos into 1/4 inch pieces and fry in canola oil until tender   Beat 6 eggs with a fork until we...

My Budget Diet For Jan. 9th

As I sit in the office kitchen eating my lunch that I brought from home, again, I often reflect on how much money being a celiac is saving me. Everyone eats out, well most people do, and I always carry in. Sure, I could order salads and what not, but boy...salad sure does get boring. I also don't buy a bunch of specialty foods. Sometimes I'll get a cake mix, cookies, or some Trader Joes rice...

Dinner Tonight

Tonight we had a wonderful dinner: Roast chicken with lemon pepper, celery salt, thyme, and rosemary, cooked at 350* for 1 hour White rice (not as nutritious as brown, but the brown rice is too hard on my 1 year old's tummy) Sauteed veggies, yellow squash and zucchini with onion and oranges for dessert.   My co-worker at the office keeps trying to offer me cookies and pastries. I came ...

Overview

This is a blog about my life and how I cope with Celiac. What I eat, things that I run into, reactions from other people, and reactions from me. The good. The bad. The ugly.   I have been Dx'd for about 1.5 years. During that time my life was not only turned upside down from my diagnosis, but my daughter was also Dx'd with Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes (both diseases are strongly linked, as ...
