Chicken and yellow rice tonight:-) Maybe some black beans...

Only draw back is that I have not been able to find an MSG free yellow rice mix (dye free and of course gluten free though :-)

http://www.occasionalomnivore.com/2009/08/16/msg-free-chicken-and-yellow-rice/

does this work for you? :)

Question---if the "yellow" is coming from saffron--can you just use saffron threads and skip all the additives/MSG in any "mixes" you would purchase? I can't do MSG either and avoid all packaged things for this very reason.

Mom and grandma agree that it'd be okay (only would be a problem that long is if it was a dairy product).

Canada? Funny girl. Yep it does that here. :(

It was very nice here today, warm but a bit cloudy.

I made L2T's pasta with her ricotta filling for dinner today. First try was too dry and they split when I tried to fold them. Tried again and it was great. We put a Florentine sauce on them with some artichokes. So good and everyone loved them.

I am going to play around with the recipe using different flours.

Now, you know I meant no disrespect about the Canada question. I know it can swing wildly--just like in NYS. xxoo

The other day I converted my gnocchi recipe to gluten free and had it with a pesto I made with almonds. I was so happy it turned out I was clapping. :P

Hey thanks! I will try this. The yellow is coming from saffron (and tumeric), this has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid. Even with the prepackaged stuff my wife does really well, but given the opportunity to cook fresh I will take do it.

I love saffron, too. Then, you probably would like:

Risotto with saffron

and veal marsala

That's what we're having tonight.

Namaste brand gluten free chocolate cake mix~the food of the Gods!!!! NOM NOM NOM NOM.....Best and only cake mix I will ever use. I've tried many many cake mixes that were horrible. I use to think Betty Crocker's gluten-free cake mix was good, until I tried Namaste!! I made my own gluten-free chocolate butter cream frosting. Both cake and frosting were gluten-free and dairy free.

where do you purchase such food of the gods?!! i, too, have only tried the betty crocker - and thought: surely i can find a recipe that won't cost $5 a box and make it myself... i am braver at mixing flour(s) now :)

i was thinking of trying butternut squash gnocchi (accidentally grew butternut squash lolz) as i have a ton of them (they grew in the compost bin hahahaa they survived the lawnmower :D)

here's a few nights dinners i made:

bratwurst reubens w/homemade sauerkraut (pot cheese & pickles) too hot to really cook that night :)

oooooh! oooooh! i accidentally made 'panko' breadcrumbs!!!! i usually dry out gluten-free bread ends in the oven - low temp - till its pretty well dried out and then i put it in the "bullet" <chopper thingy> well, this time i was impatient and only thawed the bread out - it was still pretty moist - put it in the chopper and it was wanting to stick together and clump so i shook it and i'll be darned if it didn't resemble panko. so, i spread it out on foil and baked it for about 5 min and they turned out GREAT!! that night we made: panko & herb crusted cod with butternut fritters and maple dijon mustard (with rice)

and all that talk of ragout...

venison ragout over spiral pasta w/steamed broccoli i'll be eating that again tonight yummmmmmz

chicken cheese empenadas (sp) w/refried beans & pico de gallo

chicken w/mushroom gravy, mashed taters, roasted brussels sprouts w/shallots & red wine vinegar

now i have a ton of sauerkraut left in the fridger :) i'm thinking pork & crockpot... i still have some pierogies in the freezer.... hmmmm....

I'm not making anything except another apple/huckleberry crisp. The one I made last night is already gone. My kids fought over it like wild animals....LOL

Last night I made sweet and sour pork with rice for dinner. My husband came home and said he didn't feel well and wanted comfort food. He wanted my fried chicken strips (dubbed crack chicken by everyone I know because it's so addictive and good), mashed potatoes, mixed veggies, and apple/huckleberry crisp. So, I made 2 meals last night and the family can eat leftovers!! I did make a second crisp though, it's in the oven.......

My Venice Bakery crusts finally arrived!!! Okay okay, so I didn't actually order them until last weekend. They shipped Monday and arrived today so it wasn't that awful a wait but I thought I just may die wanting pizza.

So, we only got the sample pack of three 5 inch crusts to try them until we were sure we wanted to order more. For the first time in 10 months I had pizza that had crust with the an amazing pizza crust texture. The taste was also great. We simply made them into pepperoni pizzas since they were so tiny but we plan on ordering more right away.

We are having a french leek pie in the new crust I bought from Whole Foods, with a green mixed salad, and baked apples stuffed with dates and brown sugar.

    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
    • While you could very well be vitamin/mineral deficient, you could also have issues with your thyroid.  Autoimmune thyroid is common with .......autoimmune celiac disease.  Your doctor should order a full thyroid panel, including thyroid antibodies.   Your blood sugar should also be checked (autoimmune diabetes).  I am not saying you have these issues, but these AI issues are common with celiac disease.  In fact, you can develop or have more than one AI issue.   If I feel a very strong need to nap, I know my thyroid is off and my doctor should be notified.  A simple blood test usually verifies that an adjustment to my thyroid replacement is needed.   That said, you are in the healing stages of celiac disease.   Eat healthy and include plenty of fats to keep you satiated.  Try to avoid processed foods.  Make sure that gluten-free diet is varied and full of veggies.  Get plenty of rest.  Just listen to your body.  Soon you will feel much better.  
    • Hi and welcome Can you tell us a little about your diet? What are you eating on a typical day? You may find that some simple switches in food choices can deliver more energy and fewer spikes and crashes. This is something that receives too little attention, particularly from the medical community. It can come as a huge shock to the system and as the implications become apparent its easy to feel overwhelmed. This certainly happened to me and many others here so first do know that you're not alone. You are currently grieving believe it or not and you will be going through the stages of grief.  Second, although it may not feel it now, it WILL get better and you will adjust and adapt as you get used to the diet and start focusing on what you can still do rather than what you can't.  In the meantime, this is a good place to vent and share those feelings as they are perfectly natural and understandable and whilst not always helpful,  they are a part of you and a part of the healing process. Go easy on yourself, this is very early days. You are young, which is good news, it means you will heal sooner and you will adapt quicker and there's lots of good things on the way for you as your body gets a rest from the gluten that's been holding you back.  All the best!
