Since it's summer here, I made rice paper "summer" rolls: slaw of cabbage and carrots with commercial feta/garlic dressing; sushi rice, spears of cucumber, avocado, goat feta cheese,

julienne of carrots, green onions, snow pea sprouts for hubs and watercress for me, along with shrimp. Yum. Super healthy! I used the feta dressing for dipping sauce, hubs made a wasabi/tamari???!!! combination :lol:

Last night I had veggie-beef soup made from that leftover beef roast and juices that I had stuck in the freezer a couple of weeks ago. I actually made the soup the day before and as with many soups, this was even better the second day.

Since I never use a recipe for it, it doesn't turn out the same way twice. I added chopped onion and celery, a can of V-8, a box of Progresso beef broth, a can of petite diced tomatoes, some shredded cabbage and a bag of frozen mixed veggies, basil and parsley (that's the things I remember). Glad I managed to stash some single serving containers in the freezer for future quick meals when I positively don't feel like cooking.

Oh, and I also had a gluten-free Betty Crocker cupcake about 9 p.m....

Tonight is an easy gluten-free dinner. Steak and lettuceless salad. No thinking needed. Just eating.

Last night for dinner I made fluffy pancakes. Our local health food store had a Gluten Fest this last weekend. I love to be able to sample gluten-free foods before buying. One company was making pancakes. Those fluffy light ones that I have not been able to find in years. Their mix, Light-As-Air Pancakes is very good. My DH was in heaven to have a great pancake dinner. I believe it was by Fahlstrom Farms.

Ya'll are making me jealous! Yumm!

Tonight we had grilled pork steaks that I marinated in orange juice & s&p with brown rice, stamed swiss chard and roasted mushrooms and a little bit of fresh pineapple. And one small piece of dark chocolate for dessert. Not bad. B)

Taco Rice--I'm a taco lover and this is better than tacos any day. There are lots of recipes on the internet. I just make it the same way I do for tacos. I do add whole beans to the meat.

Started on this journey w/ my 9 yr old son after a bout w/ the flu in the fall of 2009.

2 neg celiac blood tests, mine was also neg. No endo done. Son had x-ray, showing severe constipation. Son has latex allergy. KP for both of us.

Long family history of bowel problems, auto-immune and all sorts of cancers. My G-mother informed me that she was put on a gluten free diet after she had my mom (1950's), of course she stopped when she felt better. She has had problems ever since I can remember.

So here we are! I do have my son's Dr to thank for even bringing up celiac! Thank You Dr.B!

My adult daughter also has been helped by eating gluten-free.

Tonight I made a stir-fry with chicken breast, shrimp, onions, snow peas, mushrooms, yellow squash and probably a couple of other things I've forgotten. And Jasmine rice. Now I'm having a Reese's peanut butter cup. :D

Tonight, I had gluten free pasta with frozen vegetable mix of broccoli, green beans, carrots, kidney beans, white beans, black beans, added some garlic and onion and topped with parmesan. mmmmm my go to meal when I don't feel like cooking anything big.

I was in CA last week and for my son's birthday I made him a chocolate cake (regular not gluten free) and I also made a gluten free version of the same old family recipe using Bob's Red Mill all purpose baking flour and a tsp of xanthum gum per cup of flour. They all liked my gluten free version better and some of the guests couldn't tell the difference!! My youngest son that lives with me said that going forward I can make the gluten free one all the time!!! I'm making it for a party I'm going to next Sunday and only the hostess knows it's gluten free (wink). I'm also making a pasta salad that I made in CA as well. Tinkyada spiral noodles, grape tomatoes, mozzarella pearls, chopped onion, chopped garlic, olive oil, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and some chopped fresh parsley and basil. Let this combo sit for a while and the flavor is amazing. (I almost didn't get any at the party last week and I was the only gluten free one there lol)

Another thing I did today - I had purchased some Glutino sesame bagels and wasn't crazy about the taste or texture as a bagel so I cut them up in little chips and drizzled with olive oil, onion powder, garlic powder, and a little salt and baked them until they were dried out and crunchy. OMG they taste like the rye chips in Gardetto's... LOL I have a whole bag of the chips from 3 bagels.

Happy Cooking

I have some leftover taco meat in the freezer I need to use, how do you make this?

Make your items you make for tacos, use no shell or tortillas, put hot cooked rice in a bowl, top with cheese and then layer on taco meat and any topping you desire.

I pulled a serving of my veggie-beef soup out of the freezer for dinner. And because it's a pretty light meal, I'm going to indulge in a Udi's Double Chocolate Muffin later this evening (nuked briefly to melt those chocolate chips). They are to die for...albeit a bit on the expensive side but I figure I'm worth it. :D

I'm intrigued with the fish pie...would love details...

Tonight we had fish filets, marinated in fresh herbs, lemon juice and olive oil and minced green onion/serranno pepper, wrapped in parchment paper and grilled, along with grilled new potatoes and summer squash. I just add chopped onion or chopped green onion to the taters and drizzle olive oil over them, add sea salt and freshly ground pepper, wrap them in foil and dh takes it from there on the grill.

I live with a grill master. If I marinate something or cover it in aluminum foil, he'll grill it, despite the weather. Yay!

Sylvia, thanks for reminding me. Because the grill master isn't gluten-free, sometimes he's a pain, but worth keeping.

I didn't eat much tonight. I accidently had some soy today. That twists me up.

I made this tonight and must tell you it is sooooo good!!! It just so happened that I had leftover rice in the fridge so I didn't even have to cook it. I used shredded cheddar cheese and a medium-hot salsa on top. YUMMY! And another emergency meal (plus some to stash in the the freezer)

I also made a simple flourless chocolate cake today with a chocolate ganache glaze. Actually I made it for a get-together with friends tomorrow...but I'm going to sneak a piece tonight. I imagine it will be very rich as an 8" single layer cake makes 12 servings. :P
