The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

I'm not sure my husband quite understands what his day tomorrow means yet. He got a Saturday off, which I decided meant he's going with me and I get to enjoy the market while he mans the stand. I also told him he can find out what my day is like by going with me to set up, and I don't think he has fully grasped that this means leaving the house at 6:30.

 

I'll be nice to him tonight. Steaks, stovetop mac & cheese, summer squash and fries. There is still plenty of ice cream in the freezer for dessert. :)

Irish, sorry for the confusion. I was using recipes for low carb baked goods because they usually are flour less, but have a ton of eggs. Which I can't eat :( I care nothing for low carb. I love all the carbs! I just need to shift gears and use traditional recipes, and give in to buying or making gluten free flour because I can't pull off a recipe with 6 eggs using a replacer. Traditional recipes use 1-2 eggs, which is do-able with a replacer.

In other news, feeling fabulous since figuring out eggs were making me feel like hell. Did a bit too much last weekend and slept 13 hrs that night. But I woke up feeling good!

Has anyone tried this new schar bread from the freezer. I had it with sloppy Turkey Joe's tonight. Amazing! And they have a $2 coupon online.


Beef and pork free due to intolerance since 2005, Gluten free since March 2014, Coffee free due to a developed intolerance June 2014, Egg free due to a developed intolerance August 2014
Misdiagnosed since 2000 with chronic fatigue syndrome, major depression and anxiety disorder.
Requested doc test for Celiac disease in April 2014.
Blood test positive for  Celiac disease May 2014.

Celiac Dx confirmed via small intestine biopsy 6/26/14
Fatigue,.depression, anxiety, daily headaches, and a laundry list of other symptoms have diminished slowly since I stopped eating gluten.

Who knows how much longer I would have suffered if I continued to rely on doctors to think of testing me for celiac disease.

Bought a half dozen readers last evening...and found my Sunglasses after I bought a spare  :huh: 

 

Was able to find the Kentucky Kernel breading in the pantry and had breaded chops.  Making that strawberry concoction today....maybe blueberry.  Steaks for Dinner with Spinach Salad.

Hubs just improvised some "cookies".  He mixed rice chex, chocolate chex with some peanut butter and corn syrup and rolled them into balls.  It's really good.  Kind of like a special K bar but softer and no frosting, but the chocolate chex gives you the chocolate frosting taste!

ah, yes, this diet gives me a legit excuse to play with my food.  which i love   :)

 

sometimes, i mix yogurt, almond butter, chex mix, honey, and pecans (plus sometimes chocolate chips) and eat it as a snack - it's really UGLY but delicious.  plus, good for gaining weight  ^_^

As you know full well, I am easily amused too. Let me know what happens with the KFG experiment . KaBAM!  ^_^

 

On the road tomorrow...2 week road trip ---a 3000 mile round trip (geesh, I could have just driven to San Diego) . I will be eating everything that was not eaten last night for dinner and getting my stuff together. Koolatron will be full, Have a box of  G F treats for us, my cousin and Mom (also gluten-free) and I will be seeing my friend with the G F bakery, so lord knows, I won't starve. Staying 2 nights with that G F cousin, so that should be good. 

 

I'll be dining out several times. (many of them are Bonefish Grills), so please keep all your collective fingers crossed. Thanks!

 

Stay well, peeps. I'll see you all later. 

 

Bye Colleen.! talk to you soon! :lol:

Have a great time on vacation!! :)

 

What have I eaten lately?  Last night was chicken enchiladas that I had froze on an earlier date.  Day before I made myself gnocchi with sauteed mushrooms and zuchinni- so gooood!  Earlier this week we tried out the trader joes brown rice tortillas and made quesadillas.  They taste good but they hurt my jaw chewing them.  Tonight I have some leftover grilled chicken I am going to throw into a stir fry.  

 

Start my job this week, have to get over the hurdle of crazy schedule stuff and then it will be back to my normal in about 2 months.  I will probably grill up a bunch of chicken and make myself a salad with that in it to take every day.

Congratulations on the new job!

What do you do?

And absolutely throw cooked diced chicken in the freeze. Helps throw great lunches together.

Do you think if I just freeze portions of cut up chicken and toss them on top of the salad frozen, they will thaw okay by lunch time?  Would be the night before.  I needed a physically non-demanding job am going to be taking calls for a big company.  Train there 2 months and then work from home, it'll be 20 hours a week, create your own schedule as long as you meet a certain number of hours, etc.  And the times they want are when my husband is at work so perfect on that end.  The best part is due to the flexibility, I won't have to disclose any of my illnesses.  I have heard they treat their employees well and such-they were very picky in the application/interview process, so I am hoping for the best!

This week has been a lot of fruits, foster farms corn dogs, and sandwiches. Yes, sandwiches on nice moist no toasting needed gluten free bread! I was at Kroger last week and the lady that stocks the health food section told me about Pure Knead bread...certified gluten free, no toasting, and moist! It almost tastes like "normal" folk bread, and it's made in good old Decatur, GA!! Needless to say, I'm picking up a case of it at Kroger tomorrow, shod last me a week or so!

Absolutely! I have one freezer door shelf filled with baked or BBQ'd chicken in all forms. And I have thrown frozen diced chicken on a rough salad (by rough I mean chopped veggies over a bit of lettice). Make sure to bring dressing separate. I like tiny bottles that I freeze so it adds a bit of chill factor to salads.
