The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Recommended Posts

Some leftover Chinese take-away from yesterday: chop suey with beef and white rice. Very mysterious: everytime I can't cook there's fast food on the table. You'd almost think my BF doesn't like to cook :P

I'm quite happy with our local chinese restaurant: they know exactly what's gluten-free. When I asked about gluten-free dishes they gave me the menu and underlined everything I could eat. The waitress also said I couldn't have their curry soup, because it contained coconut. I was surprised and said that coconut is gluten-free. She then told me that their dried coconut has flour in it to prevent it from sticking. Now that's someone who's well-informed :D I've given them a very good recommendation in the Dutch gluten-free restaurant database.

How great to have a trustworthy place near you! We have some very good places, too, but they are all a three-hour drive away. Still worth it, though, for a treat.

There definitely is nothing wrong with Breakfast Suppers!! :D

You are about 90 degrees warmer than us right now. But we are having an exceptionally mild winter - normally it would be about -32F but we are lucky.

Ummmm...not so much to pluck. Hey - besides popsicles I could drizzle some maple syrup over some snow! Man, I always seem to be thinking of food.

PIZZA! With homemade crust from recipe I found in an allergy free baking book (gluten, dairy, soy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla, nutmeg, nuts free recipe). I put the (yeast) dough in 2 10x15inch jelly roll pans. After that rises, we'll top each pizza with our favorite toppings. Mine will include tomato paste (Muir Glen), shrimp, sliced zucchini, green pepper, mushrooms and yellow pear tomatoes (still ripening in my basement after they were picked from my garden last fall), and Daiya shredded mozzerella cheese. My husband will use the tomato paste, shrimp, cheese, pineapple and Applegate Farms turkey bacon. This is my first attempt at the pizza dough recipe from this book. So I'll post later about how that turned out. Oh, and we'll drink Martinelli's apple cranberry sparkling cider with dinner (neither of us consume alcohol).


Gluten, dairy, soy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg free. Enterolab diagnosed gluten/casein intolerant 7/04; soy intolerant 8/07. ELISA test diagnosed egg/cane sugar IgG allergies 8/06; vanilla/nutmeg 8/06. 2006-10 diagnosed by DNA Microbial stool tests and successfully treated: Klebsiella, Enterobacter Cloaecae, Cryptosporidia, Candida, C-diff, Achromobacter, H. Pylori and Dientamoeba Fragilis. 6/10 Heidelberg capsule test diagnosed hypochloridia. Vitamin D deficiency, hypothyroiditis, hypochloridia and low white blood cells caused vulnerability to infections. I now take Betaine HCl, probiotics, Vitamin D and T3 thyroid supplement to maintain immunity.

My husband loved the thin crust. I stretched the dough intended for a 13x18 pan into those 2 10x15 jelly roll pans. I should have calculated that before I stretched it so thin. LOL Oh well. Next time I use that recipe I'll make smaller pizzas with thicker crust. Nevertheless, I loved the taste of the crust and it was sturdy enough to hold all my toppings. Most of all I loved that thick layer of Daiya mozzarella cheese on top. Hurray for dairy/soy free cheese!!!!!

Glad it turned out so well for you, burdee. What flours/starches are in the recipe? When I was first diagnosed, I avoided pizza as I was never able to find Daiya cheese around here. Luckily I am now able to use regular mozzarella without issue.

Last night I did make two smaller crusts and stuck one prebaked in the freezer when I want a quick pizza in a week or two.

Black eyed peas and some collard greens. Southern tradition, done simple. I'm the only one that really likes them. Probably will finish up the olive cheese ball and gluten-free sausage balls from last night too!

Encore (I do not say leftovers :lol: ) from last night's New Year's Eve dinner I made:

Garlic-studded filet mignon roast, mushroom/port wine sauce, potato gratin dauphinoise, caesar salad, champagne and flourless chocolate cake with a ridiculously rich ganache.

I am such a piggy. :lol:

Smoked St. Louis style ribs, black eyed peas and rice. I threw some roasted garlic, poblano and red peppers in with the black eyed peas along with cumin and mustard seed, tumeric and fresh thyme and they were the best! Happy New Year! :D

IrishHeart, Mushroom, I want to eat at YOUR houses!

Last night I had a ham and swiss sandwich on Rudi's toasted multigrain bread with a little mayo. First time I have had a "real" sandwich in ages.

Had a reaction to wheat, oats, rye, and barley in a lab test done by a homeopathic doctor in 1997. Have been mostly gluten-free since then. Also highly allergic to MSG.

C'mon over! :)

Seriously, I don't want to give you the impression we eat like that every day, hon. :)

That was a New Year's Eve Special. :) For nearly 4 years I could not eat anything without getting ill or experiencing severe GI tract burning--even in my mouth. I have not been able to cook/bake like that for so long. No strength in my arms and legs and I lost 90 lbs. No ability to multi-task and have more than one burner on the stove going. It was crazy for a while there! And I need to get some muscle back, so I indulged--- with my doctor's blessing. In fact, I indulged Heavily. :lol: It was awesome!!!! :)

This holiday, I was determined to celebrate getting my life back.

Often, a ham & cheese sammy on homemade bread is lunch here, too.

Best wishes, IH
