Me too, but it makes me sick if I eat it solo. Usually I have peanut butter or cheese at the same time.

I'd really be trying to raid your recipes if I didn't have so many other food intolerances/allergies.

We're having grilled fish again tonight. I marinated it in pineapple juice, fish sauce and pepper. That's with salad and sweet potatos for me, roasted white taters for him. Got to go eat now...

We're trying to use up everything in the fridge so tonight I had chicken marinaded in Asian chili sauce and cucumbers with roasted red pepper hummus. Hubby had leftover bison taco meat, carmelized onions and bell peppers in a bowl over rice with a broken up tortilla. I cooked up the rest of my boneless skinless chicken breasts in three ways--lemon pepper chicken, rotisserie and in the Asian chili sauce. Now I have enough cooked food to last us until Friday and I can pack all the pots and pans and even all my spices up for the move.

Tonight for dinner we had grilled sirloin burgers. I sauteed some sliced onions and portabella mushrooms in olive oil with s&p to top the burgers. We had roasted potatoes too. When we sat down to dinner, I asked my non gluten-free sig other if he'd like some bread. He said "yes!". I said "Too bad!" and cracked up laughing and you know how it goes, when one of you starts laughing the other one does too. We laughed and laughed. "It's better that a wish burger, where you WISH you had some meat!" (Wonder what the Blues Brother would have sang about gluten-free?)

Then he said, "You know, I've had to become better at grilling with this diet of yours. I used to be able to slap a slice of cheese on a burger, or drown it in bbq sauce if I cooked it too long. We'd stick it on buns and you'd never know." "Now that you want things cooked naked, I really have to pay attention."

So tonight we got into naked cooking without buns. It was all good. And I'm finally getting my sense of humor back. Yay!

Plain boiled white rice for me, some lovely homemade vichyssoise soup I made the other day for my husband. I have been quite ill lately so am keeping it bland and simple until whatever this is passes.

Add a little home made chicken broth to that. It adds a tad bit more to flavor and you know what they say about chicken soup, maybe that will do the same?

I normally do that when i'm not feeling well.

Not cooking tonight. Eating at Maggiano's Italian restaurant and ordering off their gluten free menu to celebrate my HQ credentias being restored to me for passing the NTE years ago. YEH!

I am so freaking excited to start cooking dinner tonight!

Butter chicken

Jasmine Rice

Aloo Gobi (Cauliflower and potato curry) with the cauliflower and potatoes from my own garden!

Pakoras with tamarind and mango chutneys

All homemade! I love cooking Indian food but only find the time once a month or so. I've never made pakoras before but I bought a deep fryer so I can have all my favourite deep fried foods at home where I'm safe.

Busy mom to 3 great kids (4, 8 and 18)

Gluten free since April 6, 2011 ~ Also sensitive to coconut, coffee and food dyes

Joint pain, mouth sores, back and neck pain, migraines, stomach pain, chronic fatigue, ADD and depression are all gone.

Tonight's dinner was not very exciting. We had some frozen stuffed baked potatoes. They were really lacking in flavor! Also some bacon that needs to be used up and salad. The salad was the best part. That's kind of sad.

Thanks! I've had a somewhat rough two weeks - severe D, vomiting, cramps, pain. Surprisingly enough I have not lost a single pound. My pain threshhold is high but I am not liking this. ER doctor questioned me about travels. However, with celiac disease, I have no idea whether this is my first glutening or what? I have not eaten out for ages and our home is strictly gluten-free. Perhaps it is a sign of another intolerance but I have no clue what because I get ill no matter what I eat. We had fab food last night because I was feeling better but am ill again now. Just cannot link this with anything I am eating at all. I am seeing my GP Wednesday.
