Baked haddock (maybe with a lemon-herb sauce), red potatoes and fresh green beans. I also have a nice ripe freshly-picked tomato that's just begging to be eaten.

We had turnip greens in the traditional southern fashion. That's all that mattered to me, but I made fried polenta (to dip in the liquour of the greens) because I have not been able to find a gluten-free corn bread recipe that I trust.

We had chicken too, but for me, it was all about the greens and polenta. DP said "Wow, that's really good cornbread!" (He's a Yankee, but a good Yankee.)

I'll make desert pretty soon. Gluten free icecream cone dipped in microwaved allergen free chocolate chips mixed with a little cream, then filled with vanilla ice cream and drizzled with any leftover chocolate.

That's good with fresh or canned fruit too. Guess I'll stop writing about it & go do it.

Making "bread" for tonight, trying a new recipe out. I'll share it if it doesn't suck. Picked up some pork chops last night at the store, I'll probably bake them then use up all the juice to make some nice gravy to sop up with that bread. Diet you say? No, I didn't mention I was on one of those. I don't know what you're talking about. :ph34r:

Oh, I love sole. It is such a blank canvas.

I love sole and snapper. Apparently when I was a kid I loved Flounder too and whenever we went out for dinner I would have that while the other kids were having their spaghetti or burgers.

Another heat wave here so I may not even eat tonight, maybe just fruit.

Well, it's too darn hot here to cook, so I'll pick up Sora on my way to Love2's house.

Like Adalaide, I made bread today..."mock" rye bread today-- 2 loaves---but really, it's 88 out there....what was I thinking?

****added in "mock" so I don't scare the beejeepers out of anyone! :lol: thinking, has she lost her mind???

She probably meant "mock rye". I think I've seen some recipes for it but they are made from gluten-free ingredients and somehow emulate a rye flavor.

Oh, yes a "rye" bread recipe would be great!! I do miss my reuben's!!

Tonight I made stuffed bell peppers with onions and garlic sauteed first in the skillet with virgin olive oil and then browned the ground round, added diced tomatoes and steamed rice, spooned into the prepped fresh peppers (got them at the Farmer's Market just today) and then a small dinner salad tossed with chopped olives and vinagarette.

Tomorrow, well, I just boiled some eggs, so, thinking a spinach salad to start with the eggs and vinagarette...have that gluten free bisquick mix and fresh strawberries, so dessert...mmmmm should be a very nice short cake!

I am not a huge rye bread fan, but I love my Reubens, too.

Hubs and my friend, Elaine LOVE it, so I make it for them. I did not add the "rye flavoring" (it is expensive to ship it from authentic foods, but I may try it next time) BUT I did use the caraway--generously IN the mix and sprinkled on top of the loaves with an egg-white wash.

It lasts well in the fridge. It is awesome toasted with cream cheese, smoked salmon, capers and red onion.

Even I thought it tasted like "rye" bread. And yes, it makes a decent reuben! :)

Yeast. <_< Oh well I didn't want rye bread anyway. (I'll tell myself this until I believe it.)

My bread last night didn't turn out as bread. I wanted a half recipe, so I soaked the appropriate amount of grains. I then got home from my movie, forgot and added the full amount of everything else. Oops. I'll try again tonight with a smaller dose of idiocy!

Tonight is grilled New York strips, quinoa salad, taters and bread. (Hopefully.) I think I still have a bowl of pudding I made on Monday too so we'll probably polish that off for dessert.

Yes - we have snow in Canada for 6-7 months. And not just a wee bit, either. So, whomever is willing to shovel, I'll do the cooking! Maybe you can get some decent seat sales. :P

I love snow...really. My favorite time of year is winter. It does wonders for the hot flashes. I also love gourmet cooking and eating. I would be willing to shovel for some of the menus you have posted here! :D I also would love to visit that part of Canada.

I am making Italian sausage with peppers and onions and probably rice and a plate of fresh veggies cut up.

Last night after a rain the temp went down and my son and I made Poutine (bad girl) and hotdogs and peaches for dessert.

At first I was like what the heck is Poutine. Then I was like :blink: That looks so good! I actually have a local creamery where I can buy fresh curds. Which I'm not supposed to eat, but lets be honest here. French fries. Fresh curds. Gravy. Um, put me on the sign up list! (see, this is why I'm still fat)

I have heard that authentic Poutine has to be made with chicken gravy. I do like it better than beef myself.

My bread tonight turned out as bread! Yay, I didn't royally screw it up this time. This is the recipe I used, although I only made half since I hardly have the space or pans to cook a whole recipe of it. I don't think I could eat that much either. It isn't amazing, but it's good. Once I had it slathered in gravy though? Was just like I remember, bread covered in gravy. Yum!

I am going to try this, it looks good and sounds so easy. Thanks.

Crazy in a heat wave(100 today)but I made a huge pot of Beef stew.

Hopefully we can eat off that for a day or so. They are predicting 106 degrees by Sunday.

Mmmmm.... beef stew. Sounds yummy! The weather doesn't quite sound as awesome as your dinner.

We found a box of gluten free mac & cheese (kraft style) on clearance so we had that with some burgers for dinner tonight. It wasn't amazing but when it's been months and you just want a quickie dinner, it's a nice change of pace. I suppose we may occasionally indulge.

    • Almost 2 years into my diagnosis after losing about 35-40 pounds I have now added about 60 with clean gluten free eating. I also changed jobs which for me has been much more of a physical change, thus needing more calories I have finally been able to put back some pounds. It is possible, for me the clean diet which helped restore my guts let me finally start absorbing the nutrients I was lacking. 
    • Hi Niza, Try to eat lots of protein.  Meats, peanut butter, avocadoes, things like that.  Try to avoid processed (pre-made) foods like frozen pizza, cereals, pot pies, cookies etc.   There gluten-free versions of many of these foods, but they are best saved for later on like 6 months after going gluten-free. If you are just starting out gluten-free, eat a simple diet of mostly foods you make yourself at home.  Also, try not eat eating any dairy (milk, cheese etc) for a couple months.  Oats are also a thing to avoid eating for a couple months.  You may not have any problem with dairy or oats, but some people do. Welcome to the forum Niza!
    • I am. I went undiagnosed for years and years and I honestly thought I was dying. I had been trying to gain weight even before my diagnosis and could barely gain a thing. I am so relieved to actually have an answer as to WHY! I was just diagnosed last weekend so I still have a lot of internal healing to do after years of villus atrophy. I have been drastically underweight for some time now, although I am slowly gaining. I am currently eating around 2,500 calories a day and not doing any strenuous exercise. I am only 74 lb (at 5'2") and I started out at 67 back in the beginning of December. I eat as much as some of my guy friends eat in order to "bulk" when they are lifting heavy at the gym and yet I still seem to gain at a slower rate. Just goes to show how messed up your intestines can become after years of abuse. 
    • Hey Deb, In theory (based on some studies), your small instestine should heal pretty fast (within weeks), but often there is collateral damage that can take longer (like your bone pain).  For me, personally, a gluten exposure can set me back three to six months.  My antibodies can last over a year.  And worse, I now developed autoimmune gastritis and hives.  Yikes!   I had  some hip and rib cage pain when I was first diagnosed.  Two months later I fractured some vertebrae.  I had been undiagnosed for so long, that I developed osteoporosis.  I assume that once on a gluten free diet, your pain should diminish based on a strict adherence to the diet and  your previous experience.   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I know-pretty dumb. I'm usually very careful. I didn't check into it. Thanks for reply. DebLee
