  1. Is your picture of Smith Lake. We have a lake house on Smith Lake and a view like that. I love it there.

  2. Take a cooler and some lunch meat, shredded lettuce, head of lettuce and make lettuce wraps. If you have a microwave freeze things to take with you. If you access to a grill take aluminum foil and grill a steak and some veggies and some paper plates, gluten-free cereal and some bowels, crackers. Have fun
  3. I had Mellow Mushrooms Pizza last week in Birmingham, AL and it was great.
  4. My daughter was 10 when she was diagnosed. At first when we went to the grocery store she would throw fits an cry because the first thing she saw was the bakery. So I stopped taking her for a while. I talked to her at home about what we had to do. Eventually she started going back with me. She would read the labels for me because the font is so small that I could not always read it. She is approaching her 4th year gluten free and she still gets depressed sometimes. She has come a long way. We did 5 weeks of overnight girl scout camps and she was great. It does take time but it does get easier. I always let her buy what she wants at the grocery store and even have a candy stash for those harder days. We send her favorite candy to school so she is never left out. She has learned to do all the baking and can make a great pizza. I think most Celiac have some bad days that will be there forever Whole foods has some gluten free ice cream cones that are real good for the hot summer months. We hardly buy any specialty items except flour and we buy it on line in a twenty five pound bag to save money. Hang in there and I hope it gets easier for ya.
  5. Frustrated About Incorrect, Out Of Date Posts

    Just also wanted to thank you Scott for this site. When my daughter was diagnosed at 10 (3 years ago) I had never heard of Gluten Free or Celiac Diease. Her Doctor told me about this forum and I have learned soooo much here.
  6. We just had the Asian Fried rice where you just add chicken tonight for dinner and it was great, family said it is just as good as P.F. Changs. The best part was I found it at Walmart for a $1.50 a box. Made two boxes and a couple of cut up chicken breast for $3.00 had a $6.00 dinner that fed 3 people with left overs. Thanks Betty Crocker

  12. I just wanted to say welcome. My daughter was 10 when we found out and had the same symptons as your daughter. She is now 13 and does not have any problems now. I hope she gets better.

  14. Just wanted to say hello and welcome to the forum. Keep on the gluten-free diet and maybe you will start feeling better.
  15. Potluck Supper

    Hey loopy1, if you have a gluten free kitchen it is not much harder to cook gluten-free for Thanksgiving. The receipes are not much different just have to change some of the ingredients. Good luck and have a Happy Thanksgiving.
