so far i have had

meal replacement drink

bbq pork chops and 6 sweet potato chips

i have chicken in the oven roasting ill put the potatoes in the roaster about an hr before its done and im not sure about the veggies

i have spinach celery zucchini onion garlic shredded carrots leeks thinking of cooking that up

i can not use the oil that is in the house as it contains soy so ill have to use water

i dont have much seasonings in the house either

this lactose gluten soy diet is quite challenging for me i end up not knowing what to eat and by the time i do eat its almost 2 in the afternoon i have been searching my eyes off trying to find budget friendly taste friendly foods i have found out that i can not tolerate xanthaum gum either

its so frustrating

I have a pot of chili in my crockpot. I'll have some tonight and the rest will be stashed in the freezer in single serving sizes for those times I absolutely do not want to cook.

The roast chicken and potatoes sound really good! Do you have other food restrictions (besides the ones you mention)? Can you pick up some olive oil and some dried herbs (or plant some fresh) to get more variety which will enable you to make spaghetti sauce and things like that? Some of my favorite foods are budget friendly but that's the way I've eaten all my life. And a lot of foods I eat are naturally gluten-free.

Browned ground lamb, peas,cooked rice stir fried in some olive oil. :)

Just planted my herb garden today (our summers are very short here). Each year I plant:

- rosemary (I must bring it in for the winter)

- lots of Genovese basil

- sage

- regular thyme and lemon thyme

- lemon verbena

- a few kinds of mint - if you plant mint, do so in a container - it is prolific and spreads like wild!

- chives and garlic chives

- lavender (as an annual in our climate)

- French tarragon

For a basic herb garden I would recommend at the very least rosemary, thyme, sage, chives.

I'd add some parsley and dill, too (if you like it)

ETA: While not an herb, if you can have tomatoes, I'd plant one of them, too (they even have patio tomatoes if you don't have a lot of space). They are so prolific and nothing at the store can compare.

At this point I'm thinking: a couple shots of single malt.

I plant my favorites! Right now I have a sweet basil growing strong (got plant for $2 at walmart) another basil growing from seeds. From past summers, basil always has grown very well for me. I love it!! I also have dill and lemon thyme growing. I'm hoping to get some chives growing soon. I live in an apartment and grow them in pots along with flowers. BTW, I have them all in direct sunlight.

I'm cooking some lemon and chive chicken. Not sure what I will do with it. I boiled some eggs, cut some fruit....

It's movie night and I usually treat myself to a gluten-free snack I don't normally eat during the week. I found Kettle brand gluten-free BAKED chips! They are actual potato slices and not some potato corn mixture! Lower in fat and not full of grease. Love 'em!I'm able to eat potatos, but not often. I'll mash up an avocado with some lime juice and eat it with the chips during the movie. Might have the chicken in slices with it....

After that??? Perhaps a natural strawberry ice pop I found...a lazy Saturday night since I have Monday off!

Slow roasted lamb shank with some fresh garden peas and spinach. I'll be waiting all night for my lamb shank, but it's going to be soooooo good. ^_^

?? is single malt safe? I though it was made from barley??

It is safe. It's so distilled and aged that there is no gluten left. I've never had any reaction. I also drink the 15 year, if you choose the 8 or 10 you're on your own. :P

Tonight is leftover from the roast turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and corn we had last night.

And I have a gluten free crazy cake ready to go in the oven so hopefully that is good.

<_< OOH. I haven't had single malt in years. Over a decade.

Tonight we ate like peasants, and it was really good. I made potato pancakes and homade chicken soup.

We had salad later, and I made a bomb dressing with chopped fresh herbs, leftover hummus, left-over balsalmic vinagrette, grated cucumber and coarse mustard. I stuck my immersion blender in the bowl and the dressing ended up all over the place, including my face, walls and appliances. I haven't checked the ceiling.

Thank God for profanity. That dressing probably never would have made it if I hadn't been able to really curse.

(The really stupid part is that I'd do it again, because it was the first really delicious creamy salad dressing I've made ever, even pre-gluten-free.)
