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

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... :)

    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...

    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
