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.

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.

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.

    • When you're looking for answers the negative endoscopy may seem like bad news in a funny way, it did for me when the doctor told me, but really as CL said it's good.  Keep working with your doctors.  From what you've said before gluten could still be the problem.  Now you've eliminated celiac you can try removing it from your diet, but it's important that you do it safely. You don't want to cause a problem while trying to fix one. Most people get a lot of B vitamins in particular from gluten foods. So if you make a change to your diet do it with your mom, ideally involve your doctor or a dietician and keep a diary of your symptoms too, sometimes called a food journal. You may still have found your answer, don't panic and don't lose heart. Best of luck Matt 
    • BoliviaB, DH rash can occur in Celiac's who reindtroduce wheat/gluten after a break from gluten. However I want to go/see that the parasite route has also been exhausted. The fever's (for most Celiac's anyway) are not typically but low grade inflammation is. I had annual bronchitis issues and ear aches that went away after stopping gluten. You did not say if your were a native Bolivian or not but if you are you  probably know about Chagas disease carried by the Kissing Bug. A blood test will confirm that the Chagas parasite's were killed with your AB's round. Though many AB's rounds can be as long as 2 months . . . not just two weeks for complete control. I wonder if you have Chagas (possibly) and it is causing you colon problems.  GI problems can be a sign of advanced Chagas complications. If you are having your blood drawn again it should be (re)checked. In the US (since it is not endemic) as it is in Bolivia people typically find out if they have it (Chagas) by giving blood. Chagas is considered a Neglected Tropical Disease (NTD) in the US but in Bolivia it should be ruled out as a possible cause of your fever(s) and GI problems. https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/chagas/disease.html quoting "a dilated esophagus or colon, leading to difficulties with eating or passing stool" can be a sign of chagas. if you hadn't mentioned parasites in your regimen I might not of mentioned it.  And in the UK if they didn't know your country of origin or your home country they might not of think to ask about it since it is a Neglected Tropical Disease and therefore had no reason to suspect Chagas to test your blood for it. I was only aware of it because it has begun to show up in Texas and CNN run an article about it a couple of years ago. http://www.cnn.com/2015/11/24/health/kissing-bugs-chagas-disease/index.html  If you have an outdoor dog --- dog's can also contract Chagase disease from the bite of the Kissing Bug much like in the US dog's can get heart worm from a mosquito bite. The CDC (the US health agency) says most people are assymptomatic but GI problems can be a severe sign of undiagnosed Chagas in about 30% of the population. quoting again "In people who have suppressed immune systems (for example, due to AIDS or chemotherapy), Chagas disease can reactivate with parasites found in the circulating blood. This occurrence can potentially cause severe disease." . . (NCGS and/or undiagnosed Celiac Disease (my words) could certaintly complicate someone's response to the Chagas parasite). This might be higher in Bolivia. . . and probably is since Chagas is endemic to Bolivia. The good news a blood test can help you find out if undidangosed Celiac or undiagnosed Chagas is causing your problems or if it is a complicated mix of the two. **** this is not medical advice but it explains your fevers' better than Celiac (usuallY) but the rash defiantly could be a DH reaction to gluten. 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, ETA: Here is the FAQ link from the CDC on Blood Screening for Chagas disease in the US.  https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/chagas/gen_info/screening.html Again I hope this helpful.    
    • Thank you for posting. Your honesty and openness is refreshing. My son is five years old and experiences the same as you, to include hallucinations, insomnia and stereotypies to name a few. His symptoms are all neuro psychological. Have you looked into trying a mild blood pressure med to control the accidental glutening? We were prescribed clonodine. It's not something to take all the time, just if you need to take the anxiety and insomnia levels down. I have only given it to my son during one episode and the first time I gave it to him he said, "finally!" and then fell asleep. He had been suffering from insomnia, anxiety, intrusive and dark thoughts for days. He needed the sleep. (Side note:  a lot of meds are made with lactose so you should always ask for dairy free and of course gluten free when filling a prescription). So my son responds very negatively to the following foods which are considered by some to be cross reactive to gluten.  Rye Barley Spelt Wheat Oats  Buckwheat Sorghum Millet Amaranth Quinoa Corn Rice Potato Hemp Teff Soy Milk (Alpha-Casein, Beta-Casein, Casomorphin, Butyrophilin, Whey Protein and whole milk) Chocolate Yeast Coffee (instant, latte, espresso, imported) Sesame Tapioca (a.k.a. cassava or yucca) Eggs   Our best bet has been to only eat fresh fruits, vegetables, grass fed meat and gluten free nuts. I highly recommend trying an AIP diet.  After a glutening I may give him one or two methylated B12 supplements. Have read studies involving the use of B9 in psychiatric disorders, but haven't tried it. Let me know if you want to chat or have any questions. I've been dealing with this for about two years now. We can probably learn from each other.    P.s. Just discovered recently that he reacts the same way to coconut as he would to gluten. Eliminated and now we're normal again. If you start feeling like you can't climb out of it then look very closely at your diet. Food logs are easier to make if you're eating very limited whole foods. You can slowly add things back. 
    • I am 33 and just diagnosed with celiac in July 2017. I am gluten free but still suffering from costocondritis and stomach acid issues. I am also dealing with some neurological things like pins and needles in my left shoulder blade that come and go. No deficiancies right now that we know of othwr than vitamin D which I have a prescription for. My symptoms were not bothersome until right after my first child and then everything fell apart. 
    • That is good news!  No celiac disease!   I would follow your doctor’s advice.  Consider adding in more veggies and fruit into your diet.  You can trial a gluten-free diet now that testing is over.  That might help.   Did they rule anything else out?  I would encourage you to obtain all your lab results and medical records.  It is a very good thing to maintain!
