Feeling like I needed something "fancy" to boost my spirits and keep me on track.

Grilled romaine, cold quinoa salad on sliced fresh mozzarella and Costco chicken. (Because a girl only has so much energy.)

I had picked up some instant quinoa that microwaved in it's pouch long ago and it was nasty. I doubt I would have tried it again if they hadn't had a cold salad when I took my husband out for father's day. It was delicious so I decided to give it another go. It doesn't burn nearly so easily as rice. :lol:

yes, ma'am - i was born & raised in new jersey, so, i KNOW what you're talking about - hard to get things to grow in such a short growing season!

....and our season here is far shorter than New Jersey as we are far north of you. At least we have very long summer days! :D

I'm trying for tacos tonight.

Don't know how this will work, I'm used to traditional foods...not tacos. Wish me luck.

Tonight I finished off my quinoa salad with a burger on an arepa. Since Velveeta is one of the few cheeses I can eat now that's what I topped my burger with.

What's your recipe for split pea soup? Do you get dry peas? And do you think turkey bacon would be a sufficient sub for ham? Maybe brined chicken?

Turkey bacon would be ok. The soup that Irish have may call for ham and is provably very, very delicious, but it can be done with bacon. The soup will taste like bacon and who likes bacon will like the soup too. I will cut bacon on tiny slices, and roast it without oil. When the bacon is nice and crispy, I will mix bacon and dripping from it into soup- as the last ingredients because I like to preserve crispiness of bacon.

I never made split pea soup, or sauce with ham (nobody does in my family). I'm using dry peas because peas from can is very sweet. I tried to make the soup once from canned peas, but nobody liked it.

I'm going to throw my Costco chicken carcass on the stove this afternoon and turn it into chicken rice soup for supper. I'm completely off store bought stock and bouillon so for the first time the pressure is on to get the broth just right. (I've done it before but never under pressure.) I'll probably have more grilled lettuce with it instead of a regular salad.

I made my own mayo last night, yay! Making tuna salad today so I'll have a tuna melt on an arepa with fresh mozzarella. I think I'll have grilled tomatoes to go with it. I keep telling my husband to bring me a watermelon to grill but he keeps coming home empty handed and it isn't like I can drive until I have my vision back. :( I'd walk for it but I'm not carrying home a watermelon!

Actually, I believe that EatMeat4Good loves chicken livers, too. :) You've got company. Enjoy!

It is VERY hot here today, and even though I hate it, the AC is on, so I pulled out the counter top rotisserie and herbed up a chicken.

A mixed green salad with goat cheese, dried cranberries, carmelized walnuts and balsamic dressing.

I've been away from home for several days (dog/housesitting) so have not been cooking. Instead, I did all the cooking before coming out. Very simple tonight:

Buffalo Pulled Chicken

Lemon-infused Rice

Broccoli Slaw

Strawberries

Can't wait to do serious cooking at home in a few days! Though I do LOVE it out here in the country... :)

    • JaneWhoLovesRain, what is odder to me than that there is an older disease that Doctor's have forgotten that explains many of the same symptom's and doctor's do not even think about it today since the "War on Pellagra" was declared over a 100 years and why doctor's don't (at least in the West) think about it any more. Dr. Heaney wrote a nice online article about this topic. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ Here is fairly recent article about how Pellagra can present in patients and the title says' it all from the International Journal of Dermatology. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/227807440_Pellagra_Dermatitis_dementia_and_diarrhea Dermatitis, dementia and Diarrhea are the 3 D's (4th D is death) of Pellagra. Typically it is only diagnosed today if you are in a subset of the population like an alcoholic for example or you have a gastric bypass. See this article from the New England Journal of Medicine http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMicm050641 and despite all the signs of Pellagra (skin issues etc.) . . .. Pellagra in it native tongue (Italian) where it was first diagnosed was called "rough/sour skin" who knows that today??????? Very few I would venture to guess. The NEJM can only say they have "Pellagra-like dermatitis" it has been so long since any doctor's seen it they can't (with confidence) diagnose it clinically. But taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can help alleviate your symptom's if indeed the DH of Celiac is the dermatitis of Pellagra being medically misdiagnosed. Here is a an article featured on celiac.com about why/how Pellagra can be confused for Celiac disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Because they haven't seen Pellagra in 75+ years no one recognizes it anymore. ****this is not medical advice. I hope this is helpful. Knitty Kitty and I are the Niacin warriors on this board. See this thread where Knitty Kitty says Niacin helped the itching of DH. If that is so then it might help your DH (if you have it) and your GI problems too if they are caused by co-morbid Pellagra. see my blog post about where I say "I had Celiac Disease and Developed Pellagra" that talks about this in more detail. Again good luck and your continued journey and I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • I should say I am confused about how to interpret---   Does this mean celiac or no celiac?   Thank you all---I greatly appreciate it.
    • KathleenH, I swear by MatteosPizza and they make National Delivery. I have been known to buy them by the dozen. https://www.matteospizza.com/ BellaMonica's is not a bad corn based crust.  By not bad I mean "suprisingly good" that can be bought at most grocery stores. Here is there ZIP locator page to see if they are carried in your local area. http://glutenfreepizza.typepad.com/gluten-free-pizza/where-to-find-bella-monica.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,  
    • Hey all--have Hashimoto's and am being worked up for epigastric discomfort and IBS like symptoms---   My blood work had an IgA within the lower end of normal range, negative TTG, but weakly positive DGP.   My endoscopy showed a "nodular" duodenum with the biopsy stating there was "reactive lymphoid hyperplasia"...   I have a follow-up with the GI in 3 weeks.   Wondering about any help?
    • DH wasn't linked to celiacs until 1967 from my research...
