I'm going to try this navy bean soup recipe in the crockpot tomorrow. It looks really good. Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce is gluten-free so no issues with ingredients.

Just checking that you know you have to soak your beans first.

I'm also not sure 3 hours is long enough if you are cooking them with tomatoes.

Oh yes, but thanks for checking. They are soaking tonight and I'm going to prep all the veggies and ham and toss it in a bowl in the fridge. I agree that 3 hours is nowhere near long enough in a crockpot for dried beans. I'll rinse the beans tomorrow and put everything but the tomatoes in the crockpot on low all day. It should hardly take any time in the morning. I never add acid to beans until they're done so I was going to add the tomatoes when I get home from work depending on how the soup tastes. It should have a really nice flavor because I was lucky enough to find some salt pork at the grocery store.

Was going to do taco salads tonight. Actually daughter did have that but I did not.

I had a problem on Sunday. Had ordered pizzas from Garlic Jim's. Had thought I had ordered extra red sauce on the gluten-free one but accidentally ordered Ranch sauce which I can't have because I have a severe egg allergy.

Daughter liked the pizza. Ate it on Sunday and then again last night. I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on Sunday and bought myself a small Digiorno pizza which I carefully baked on a piece of foil.

The pizza was awful. I guess I have just gotten used to the gluten-free crust or something. But then about 2 to 3 hours later, I got very sick. It was as if I had eaten egg. I had checked the box three times and there was no egg in there. I don't know if it could have been cross contamination or what. I did touch the foil and waxed paper that daughter's pizza was in but I washed my hands well after.

I don't know what it was. I suppose it could have just been a fluke. But I was fearful to eat anything other than chicken and plain white rice. I saved some of that for daughter to eat tomorrow and hopefully I'll have my taco salad.

Juliebove, you could have had a reaction to the MSG (monosodium glutamate) in the ranch dressing. That's why I never eat it.

Well, I don't teach on Fridays, so I have more time to cook.

So, tonight, I'm going to cut into cubes several chicken breasts, fry 'em up in light olive oil until done and then add to a spaghetti sauce into which I always add some thyme and greek oregano from my garden ( I freeze in small packets), yum. Then, I will add garlic and other herbs from the cupboard that strike my fancy at the moment.

All of this I will spoon over quinoa ancient harvest spirally noodles in a bowl and my husband will spoon over nasty white wheat flour noodles, lol.

Then, we will add grated mozzarella cheeze over the top while hot. Hope it turns out. Sounded good while I was out in the snow swinging by the grocery.

Last night I had a can of chicken.

Some days are less exciting than others.

LOL! I KNOW what u mean. One night this week, I was so tired I had a nice medley of Nestle's chocolate chips (hope they were gluten-free), peanuts, and raisins...ate and went to bed. I'm talking around 7:30pm.

Lentil Pie-a'la my daughter

1c lentils

4c water

2 cans crushed or diced tomatoes

2 smaller pkgs of frozen green beans

salt, pepper, Italian seasoning

--throw it all in a big pot, bring to a boil

while it's boiling, make a pkg of natural mashed potatoes (Costco has good ones)

when most of the liquid is gone from the lentil mixture and lentils are soft (~20 minutes), spoon potatoes on top, spread out a bit, sprinkle with cheddar cheese

When the cheese is melted, eat it, it's yummy!

Does sound yummy. I've been trying to think of new things to make and freeze, and I'm thinking baked potatoes, scoop out inside, fill with above lentil mix, top with cheese, wrap and freeze.

Also planning to fill some with scrambled eggs and cheese.

Maybe the scooped out innards get mixed with an egg or two, spread in a pan and baked (with cheese, of course).

Irish Latkes! Mix a little egg and a spoonful of gluten-free flour, some onion, etc. with the cooked potato. Make into little pancakes and cook in oil. Top with cheese at the end. Yummmmmmmmmmmmmm!

Curry rice with steak, as follows: long grain brown rice cooked in chicken stock with turmeric and curry powder, chopped shallot + minced garlic + frozen peas + frozen chopped green pepper steamed in chicken stock on the rice cooker, chopped hard-boiled egg whites, cubed steak leftovers (marinated in soy sauce, roasted red pepper flakes, garlic, and shallots), with extra frozen chopped green pepper added once the whole meal was combined. It had to travel to a family gathering and I microwaved about 3 minutes on HIGH once I got there, stirring twice during cooking.

Same boring food on my low oxalate gluten-free whole foods short list. baked fish, peas, mushrooms cabbage : ( I have to add it makes me feel better, but I feel I have no taste! Any help???

I don't know what a low oxalate diet is so if any of my suggestions are wrong....do what my teens do & ignore me.

Use to add flavor to current foods: Lemon juice (Or other citrus) , cilantro, basil, garlic, Peanut butter, Italian dressing, wine, bacon, butter, coconut..

We are having typical Kiwi fare - roast rolled forequarter of lamb (actually, I do it Italian style - potroast with white wine and rosemary and garlic, very un-Kiwi), with roast veg - sweet potato, parsnip, onion, squash and probably will do some chard from the garden if I get back out there.

I have lived in Texas for 15 years and have never heard of Frito pie. I come from Canada and this isn't something we have up there. So when I heard about this a few days ago we decided to try it with gluten-free Fritos and gluten-free Wolf no bean chili. My husband had shredded cheese over, but I had my plain. OMG where has this been all my life??? It was delicous.

Everyone I have told about this, they just break into laughter - apparently it is a Texas staple.

Other than heartburn (which I understand is par for the course) I had no problems. It was yummy.

We are having Irish Daveyboy's Beef Curry over rice. The recipe was posted here a few days ago. Told my hub it was " David from Ireland's " recipe & he got excited about it cause every recipe we have tried has been great.
