Good Eats



[size=4][font="Book Antiqua"]They took second helpings! The [color="#800080"]Japanese Rice Coconut Pudding [/color]turned out fine. It looked and tasted like oatmeal with cinnamon in it. I guess, since oatmeal isn't something we get to eat, it was a happy coincidence. Although I did read about some type of oat that has a low enough level of gluten....
I have been dealing with somewhat of a dilemma. The detective calls himself [color="#2E8B57"][b]finicky[/b][/color]. He doesn't have the affinity for fresh fruit and veggies like I do (lots of men are that way, aren't they? They won't do salad unless it's drowning in Ranch dressing?). However, you've got to be "finicky" if you don't like watermelon! I cooked him a steak once and I felt like he barely could eat it. Which, I have to admit, being new to red meat, probably wasn't my forte.... However, when I worked in a steak house the cooks always rolled their eyes at people who ordered their meat well done (like detective and most men I date)...giving them the worst cut of meat since they obviously didn't have an awareness about it. I like med. rare.
So, as you see, it's not really worth it to cook for him. He ate [color="#8B0000"]steak tacos [/color]the other day, but his reaction is a far cry from most of the bachelors I cook for who are so grateful for anything homemade and even beg for me to reheat leftovers. Even when I made [color="#8B0000"]Spanish rice [/color]yesterday, I was thinking, "He wouldn't eat this. It has bacon in it."
So, he eats out a lot. And, as we know, eating out is a danger zone for "us" people. Hence the dilemma.
He always lets me pick the restaurants and I've only been glutened twice (still about once a month) but the other night he picked the place: [color="#2E8B57"]Wood Grill[/color]. They cook EVERYTHING over [color="#A0522D"]mesquite [/color]grill. The mgr. came out and recommended a steak (no prime rib for me, boo hoo) and they would boil corn for me instead of roasting it. Add a baked potato and croutonless salad, and it was fine. The steak wasn't the best. Maybe I'm just sick of steak. That's all I can ever have. I felt like the server wanted me to explain why I can't have mesquite. I wasn't sure why. I guess I'll look it up. I think that happens quite often. People are so cynical and they want me to explain celiac, and whenever I actually do, it seems like they are sorry they asked. Like the story isn't dramatic enough, like "my eyes will roll back in my head and I foam at the mouth, so I really need to shun gluten because it scares my students" would be so much more entertaining.
OOh! I have the TV on and I just heard [color="#00FF00"]Martha Stewart [/color]compliment the guest she has on for not using flour or thickeners in his [color="#FF8C00"]lemon curd[/color]. He said it deadens the dish. Cool! Maybe I'll have to try lemon curd! Put it in my C.Specialties graham crust.
I was SO Disappointed the other day when I went to pick up the package waiting for me and it was an envelope! I had been literally salivating for the [color="#FF00FF"]Celiac Specialties [/color]order I'd placed for the cinnamon rolls, pumpernickel bread, donuts, etc. that I plan on bringing on my weeklong trip to visit family. ugh. Maybe it'll come today.[/font]...[/size]

People with celiac disease can eat oats. I and every other person with celiac disease that I know eat oats regularly with no ill effects. Here are two articles from this site:


[color="#556B2F"]"The article is based on a study conducted in Finland by a group of doctors who did very rigorous testing on adult celiacs and concluded that oats can, and should be included on the celiac diet (The lead doctor for the study is also a celiac)."[/color]


I'm curious, too, why can't you eat mesquite grilled food?
