That sounds really good, Anna!

 

Last night our burgers had filled us up too much so I am making the homemade gnocchi today instead.  Going to serve it with broccoli and a simple tomato and cheese sauce.

My gnocchi turned out great.  I made a royal mess in the kitchen, though.  Had a poofy spill of xanthan gum, and like an idiot I applied water to the dust to help clean it off.  Oh boy....

Whew....kids and kidlets off.  Daughter and grands flew to their new home in Ohio yesterday.  My youngest man just headed out with his brother-in-law for a 2400 mile adventure from California to Ohio :)

 

I see I have some catching up to do:

 

Fudge freezes -- when I make -- I wrap half of the double batch in foil then put in a ziploc -- freezes great and so much easier than making it twice ;)

 

Yet another week I want to move in with Irish -- yum!

 

Arlene -- so sorry to hear this sad news -- losses of those so young is a very tough thing on any community - hugs.  But loving the fancy cucumber sauce idea...I'm all about the sauces lately.

 

I think dinner is something very similar to Anna's post -- I can eat all of that :D

 

also need to check out the gnocchi idea for the men -- once the youngest gets back -- welcome home dinner next week -- yep, missing him already!

Tonight we're having breakfast for dinner. Pancakes and bacon. I'm sulking and want comfort food. Yesterday I had what should have been my first stellate ganglion block, unfortunately it failed which means that my CRPS is too advanced for them to ever be successful so it will also be my last. So now I'm exploring other options, none of which are appealing. Of course, there isn't anything appealing about having a needle shoved in your neck past your jugular vain either. They sedated me for that crap, no way in hell I was letting someone do that to me completely aware. :ph34r:

I haven't decided yet- But I wanted to try and make some gluten free bread rolls tonight. I made some last night with no yeast and they came out a little too flat. Delicious, but flat. I forgot what fresh baked bread smelled and tasted like.

The cherry tree needed picking, I think that by the time they were ready half went to the birds. <_< We still got way more than any two, or even four people could possibly eat. My husband thought he wanted to make maraschino cherries until I told him that they take booze. :lol: I'm going to price it tomorrow, but we don't want to experiment with something we may not like by spending more than we want to. We're also going to just go for the sugary, "gross" version also. And maybe I'll even manage a pie. The birds were kind enough to leave all the pits from what they were eating, so I'm saving all the pits to try a heating pad for myself from them. I've heard that cherry pit heating pads are epic, but for the work they take it isn't something I'll likely ever do for others. :ph34r:

I love cherries!  They freeze really well, too.  They add really good sweetness to smoothies by just adding a few.

 

Today we had grilled chicken, green beans, and potatoes.  (Those bacon au gratin steakhouse potatoes from a box.... one of the few box things I can/will make, lol!)

 

I prepared a pot roast for the crock pot so all I have to do is turn it on tomorrow when I go to IVIG, and then well eat off that the next few days.  I also made banana nut muffins today that turned out pretty good.  No better way to use up brown bananas.

Hubs birthday ... Unfortunately he is one sick pup for the past five days...doc sent him to ER yesterday to rule out meningitis ... They ruled out bacterial, but think viral is likely....thankfully viral is the type you want IF you ever have to get either.

Birthday dinner and cake will be postponed...hopefully he'll be able to enjoy by Father's Day.

I've been eating simply chicken and veggies for past several days to make sure I avoid as many reactions as possible to take care of my sweetie.

Off for a short walk....have a great day folks!

Laura, I noticed you mentioned IVIG. I am new to this Celiac forum so there is much I do not know about this disease. I hope I am not being too personal but is the IVIG ever used for Celiac or is this another disorder. I also have ITP and my hematologist has suggested that IVIG may be in my future. Would love to hear your experience with it.

Thanks Patti J

No real recipe....just throw big bunch of cilantro OR basil in the blender with a couple cloves of garlic or some scallions with some salt and sugar (sometimes I use sugar, sometimes agave) to taste....makes all those same foods taste different ;)

Used to use olive oil in it....sometimes still do, sometimes I just thin with a little water or cream.

Clear as chocolate mousse???

I have put a beef chuck roast in the crockpot with onions and a bit of BBQ sauce.  It sat all night with a "rub" on it.  Hoping to shred it and add more BBQ sauce for sandwiches.  Making a non-mayo coleslaw, too.

I have a pork loin to roast tonight and some chicken breasts to grill. I'm getting a little tired of my normal routine. Anyone have a good spice rub for the pork? Aherm.. I see Karen you have a rub mentioned in your post???

The rub was just salt, pepper, smoked paprika & garlic powder.  Haven't eaten it yet, so we will see.    For pork, we like to marinate in Worcestershire sauce, garlic and black pepper.

When I do my own rub for a pork loin or tenderloin I usually do rosemary, fresh chopped garlic, salt (a lot) and fresh ground pepper. It gets a beautiful crispy crust in the rotisserie but I'm sure would also be delicious just roasted or in a crockpot.

Hi Patti!  IVIG is not used for Celiac.  I have common variable immunodeficiency with low IgG and IgA and reduced vaccine response.  So I get a 40 gram IVIG infusion every 4 weeks.  I also have lupus.  

IVIG can be utilized in a lot of different conditions other than hypogammaglobulinemia (low immunoglobulins) and usually those uses are rare, but there is a lot of new research.  Cost is a big hurdle, as one infusion usually is around 15 thousand dollars (us).  Other than that you just sit there and get an infusion, most people get moderate headache afterwards but that can be reduced with benadryl, tylenol, and drinking as much water as you can.  Hopefully if you need IVIG infusions for your ITP it will be a temporary thing.

 

If they decide to start you on IVIG send me a private message if you'd like, I wouldn't mind a good chat :)

Tonight we're having steak fajitas and homemade horchata. One of my very favorite things.

 

A neighbor had some herbs taking over her garden so wanted some friendly souls to come take away some of them. As soon as I have a little shade I'll be out transplanting some chives, cilantro and parsley. I just keep adding to my garden completely by accident. B) For now I'm getting a break from those damned cherries. I don't think I ever realized what a pain in the butt they are to get cleaned and pitted so I can get on with actually DOING something with them. <_<

Thank you both for your rub/marinade ideas! I tried a rub that was a little too peppery (as in chili peppery) last time. It was good but it struck me as imbalanced.

    Celiac.com 04/23/2018 - A team of researchers recently set out to learn whether celiac disease patients commonly suffer cognitive impairment at the time they are diagnosed, and to compare their cognitive performance with non-celiac subjects with similar chronic symptoms and to a group of healthy control subjects.
    The research team included G Longarini, P Richly, MP Temprano, AF Costa, H Vázquez, ML Moreno, S Niveloni, P López, E Smecuol, R Mazure, A González, E Mauriño, and JC Bai. They are variously associated with the Small Bowel Section, Department of Medicine, Dr. C. Bonorino Udaondo Gastroenterology Hospital; Neurocience Cognitive and Traslational Institute (INECO), Favaloro Fundation, CONICET, Buenos Aires; the Brain Health Center (CESAL), Quilmes, Argentina; the Research Council, MSAL, CABA; and with the Research Institute, School of Medicine, Universidad del Salvador.
    The team enrolled fifty adults with symptoms and indications of celiac disease in a prospective cohort without regard to the final diagnosis.  At baseline, all individuals underwent cognitive functional and psychological evaluation. The team then compared celiac disease patients with subjects without celiac disease, and with healthy controls matched by sex, age, and education.
    Celiac disease patients had similar cognitive performance and anxiety, but no significant differences in depression scores compared with disease controls.
    A total of thirty-three subjects were diagnosed with celiac disease. Compared with the 26 healthy control subjects, the 17 celiac disease subjects, and the 17 disease control subjects, who mostly had irritable bowel syndrome, showed impaired cognitive performance (P=0.02 and P=0.04, respectively), functional impairment (P<0.01), and higher depression (P<0.01). 
    From their data, the team noted that any abnormal cognitive functions they saw in adults with newly diagnosed celiac disease did not seem not to be a result of the disease itself. 
    Their results indicate that cognitive dysfunction in celiac patients could be related to long-term symptoms from chronic disease, in general.

    Celiac.com 04/21/2018 - Dear Friends and Readers,
    I have been writing articles for Scott Adams since the 2002 Summer Issue of the Scott-Free Press. The Scott-Free Press evolved into the Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. I felt honored when Scott asked me ten years ago to contribute to his quarterly journal and it's been a privilege to write articles for his publication ever since.
    Due to personal health reasons and restrictions, I find that I need to retire. My husband and I can no longer travel the country speaking at conferences and to support groups (which we dearly loved to do) nor can I commit to writing more books, articles, or menus. Consequently, I will no longer be contributing articles to the Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. 
    My following books will still be available at Amazon.com:
    Gluten-free Cooking for Dummies Student's Vegetarian Cookbook for Dummies Wheat-free Gluten-free Dessert Cookbook Wheat-free Gluten-free Reduced Calorie Cookbook Wheat-free Gluten-free Cookbook for Kids and Busy Adults (revised version) My first book was published in 1996. My journey since then has been incredible. I have met so many in the celiac community and I feel blessed to be able to call you friends. Many of you have told me that I helped to change your life – let me assure you that your kind words, your phone calls, your thoughtful notes, and your feedback throughout the years have had a vital impact on my life, too. Thank you for all of your support through these years.

    Celiac.com 04/20/2018 - A digital media company and a label data company are teaming up to help major manufacturers target, reach and convert their desired shoppers based on dietary needs, such as gluten-free diet. The deal could bring synergy in emerging markets such as the gluten-free and allergen-free markets, which represent major growth sectors in the global food industry. 
    Under the deal, personalized digital media company Catalina will be joining forces with Label Insight. Catalina uses consumer purchases data to target shoppers on a personal base, while Label Insight works with major companies like Kellogg, Betty Crocker, and Pepsi to provide insight on food label data to government, retailers, manufacturers and app developers.
    "Brands with very specific product benefits, gluten-free for example, require precise targeting to efficiently reach and convert their desired shoppers,” says Todd Morris, President of Catalina's Go-to-Market organization, adding that “Catalina offers the only purchase-based targeting solution with this capability.” 
    Label Insight’s clients include food and beverage giants such as Unilever, Ben & Jerry's, Lipton and Hellman’s. Label Insight technology has helped the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) build the sector’s very first scientifically accurate database of food ingredients, health attributes and claims.
    Morris says the joint partnership will allow Catalina to “enhance our dataset and further increase our ability to target shoppers who are currently buying - or have shown intent to buy - in these emerging categories,” including gluten-free, allergen-free, and other free-from foods.
    The deal will likely make for easier, more precise targeting of goods to consumers, and thus provide benefits for manufacturers and retailers looking to better serve their retail food customers, especially in specialty areas like gluten-free and allergen-free foods.

    Celiac.com 04/19/2018 - Previous genome and linkage studies indicate the existence of a new disease triggering mechanism that involves amino acid metabolism and nutrient sensing signaling pathways. In an effort to determine if amino acids might play a role in the development of celiac disease, a team of researchers recently set out to investigate if plasma amino acid levels differed among children with celiac disease compared with a control group.
     
    The research team included Åsa Torinsson Naluai, Ladan Saadat Vafa, Audur H. Gudjonsdottir, Henrik Arnell, Lars Browaldh, and Daniel Agardh. They are variously affiliated with the Institute of Biomedicine, Department of Microbiology & Immunology, Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden; the Institute of Clinical Sciences, Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden; the Department of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, Karolinska University Hospital and Division of Pediatrics, CLINTEC, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden; the Department of Clinical Science and Education, Karolinska Institute, Sodersjukhuset, Stockholm, Sweden; the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden; the Diabetes & Celiac Disease Unit, Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University, Malmö, Sweden; and with the Nathan S Kline Institute in the U.S.A.
    First, the team used liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS) to analyze amino acid levels in fasting plasma samples from 141 children with celiac disease and 129 non-celiac disease controls. They then crafted a general linear model using age and experimental effects as covariates to compare amino acid levels between children with celiac disease and non-celiac control subjects.
    Compared with the control group, seven out of twenty-three children with celiac disease showed elevated levels of the the following amino acids: tryptophan; taurine; glutamic acid; proline; ornithine; alanine; and methionine.
    The significance of the individual amino acids do not survive multiple correction, however, multivariate analyses of the amino acid profile showed significantly altered amino acid levels in children with celiac disease overall and after correction for age, sex and experimental effects.
    This study shows that amino acids can influence inflammation and may play a role in the development of celiac disease.

    Celiac.com 04/18/2018 - To the relief of many bewildered passengers and crew, no more comfort turkeys, geese, possums or other questionable pets will be flying on Delta or United without meeting the airlines' strict new requirements for service animals.
    If you’ve flown anywhere lately, you may have seen them. People flying with their designated “emotional support” animals. We’re not talking genuine service animals, like seeing eye dogs, or hearing ear dogs, or even the Belgian Malinois that alerts its owner when there is gluten in food that may trigger her celiac disease.
    Now, to be honest, some of those animals in question do perform a genuine service for those who need emotional support dogs, like veterans with PTSD.
    However, many of these animals are not service animals at all. Many of these animals perform no actual service to their owners, and are nothing more than thinly disguised pets. Many lack proper training, and some have caused serious problems for the airlines and for other passengers.
    Now the major airlines are taking note and introducing stringent requirements for service animals.
    Delta was the first to strike. As reported by the New York Times on January 19: “Effective March 1, Delta, the second largest US airline by passenger traffic, said it will require passengers seeking to fly with pets to present additional documents outlining the passenger’s need for the animal and proof of its training and vaccinations, 48 hours prior to the flight.… This comes in response to what the carrier said was a 150 percent increase in service and support animals — pets, often dogs, that accompany people with disabilities — carried onboard since 2015.… Delta said that it flies some 700 service animals a day. Among them, customers have attempted to fly with comfort turkeys, gliding possums, snakes, spiders, and other unusual pets.”
    Fresh from an unsavory incident with an “emotional support” peacock incident, United Airlines has followed Delta’s lead and set stricter rules for emotional support animals. United’s rules also took effect March 1, 2018.
    So, to the relief of many bewildered passengers and crew, no more comfort turkeys, geese, possums or other questionable pets will be flying on Delta or United without meeting the airlines' strict new requirements for service and emotional support animals.
