Merry Christmas to all!  Yesterday I went to make Christmas cutout cookies, and after the dough was falling apart when rolled, I went back and realized I didn't put in all the gluten-free flour.  So I made the best of it, and cooked the few that came out and some balled up dough.  Got a gingerbread man whose leg fell off and made up some red glaze for his arm stub, and drew a frowny face on it.  Then gave it to my husband, lol.

I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in January 2013. I also have Lupus and Common Variable Immunodeficiency(CVID) for which I am on IVIG.

I'm going to a gluten-free friend's house for Christmas but I'm still going to be bringing my own food. While she has finally gotten stricter with her diet I know she still uses her old toaster, strainers, cutting boards, etc.

 

I'm going to bring some Udi's double chocolate muffins cut into pieces so they are like brownies, a loaf of Udi's bread, and I'm going to try making peanut butter kiss cookies. (That's why i'm bringing the "brownies" - if the cookies don't come out well at least we'll have something for dessert.)


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

My SIL is gluten-free and they have learned how to be careful for me, so I consider myself very lucky that they invited us over for Xmas dinner again.  :)  

 

On Xmas Eve we are again heading up into the mountains for a sleigh ride and hot dog roast. It has been unseasonably warm this December so I am keeping my fingers crossed that they'll have enough snow for the sleigh and we won't have to resort to a bumpy wagon. One year it bounced one of the in-laws right off the back.  LOL  In the evening we head over to the in-laws for drinks and games. I need to have my baking done for then because that side of the family doesn't understand gluten-free baking, and they don't really try... It is fine with me though as I tend not to trust other people's gluten-free cooking and this way no feelings get hurt.  :)

 

As for baking... I haven't started yet. I'll have brownie's, gingerbread cookies, fruitcake, other cookies and some other treats - I'll decide and start on it tomorrow

Small victories...my family and I visited with my aunt and uncle who have at least one of their kids or grand kids with celiac eat Christmas dinner at their house each year, and they have decided to stop making 2 stuffed turkeys--1 gluten-free and 1 not--and just make 1 large gluten-free one because "the gluten-free stuffing they buy is just as good as the regular stuff."

Good stuff, Scott.  :)

 

My kids took a minor gluten hit on New years Eve.  We had a bunch of families over and went sledding at a near by hill.  When we got back I was saying goodnight to a few families so I was slow to get into the house.  By time I came in a girlfriend had opened up a bag of BBQ chips and the kids were getting into it.    :rolleyes:   Their mood was affected but they seem okay.
