I'm not cooking tonight. I made a Teff wrap for daughter with a little margarine, lettuce and turkey. She is also having baby carrots and apple slices.

Not sure what I'll have. Maybe a can of chili.

Last night I made chicken and black bean tacos. I used to make them as burritos, but haven't found a suitable flour tortilla substitute yet and I don't like corn tortillas. So I just fill taco shells now and it's still delicious! I've always loved to cook and I'm not letting this gluten-free thing get me down. Luckily, almost all of my favorites can still be made by either changing or omitting a couple things. Obviously my fav breaded recipes are out, but I'll find new favorites! Also found a great recipe for pecan crusted chicken with a mustard sauce. BF said it was REALLY good!!

Made roast beef/gravy, mashed potatoes and mixed veggies earlier this week. Made the gravy with cornstarch and it was perfect.

Just let me know when your flight arrives and I'll pick you up at the airport three hours from here. Dress warm - we still have at least three feet of snow and it is -20C. :P

We don't usually get snow in June (but the odd time we do) and July and August would work for me... :P

Northern Alberta (several hours north of Edmonton) - unsure of the altitude. We've had snow on the ground continually since the beginning of November. Yuck.

One of the many reasons why we bought a house in Croatia! B)

I dunno, I think I would head for the Bahamas myself :) That's practically the Arctic Circle in my book.

It's funny but I don't do well in heat at all, either. It makes me wilt!

Precisely! :lol: We do get up to 100F in the summer but not for long periods of time. My ideal temperature is about 60-70F at the most. Love it. :) Croatia will be nice - extremely mild short winters (in our area they get snow the odd time but rarely - two hours from Venice) and we'll just return to Canada in the summers to visit to avoid prolonged periods of heat. B)

We should be moving to Scotland - that is my favourite weather place anywhere. I LOVE rain and cool temps!

Tamatari Jhinga over brown rice! :D

Received a new cook book as a gift, and I highly recommend it: "New Indian Home Cooking". It's by a registered dietician, and great, if you like Indian Foods. (It's not gluten-free, but many recipes are, or easily adaptable.)

To translate, we had shrimp with a spicy/sweet tomato & onion sauce. It was good and cooked up quickly. (Except the rice, but I wasn't doing much while that was cooking, and I made a boat load to refrigerate and freeze for later.)

I love Indian foods!

I haven't decided yet (still have time) but one of the dishes is going to be baked fennel with parmesan. Maybe some Italian sausages and pasta with zucchini.

    • Start taking to them now about the seriousness of him staying gluten free. You have to get them past that point of thinking you are being irrational. Send them articles talking about what it's like to be glutened. You've got to make this normal and you have the time now to do it. Be firm.  I've had too many dinners in the past with my husbands family that doesn't care or care to even understand about my issues where they actually told me things were made without flour, but I reacted. Badly. They still don't care but now I just don't believe them, lol. But with a child hopefully they do care and do want to understand. You have to make them realize he is going to SUFFER if he gets glutened. And you don't want your son to hear little snide comments either. You've done a good job normalizing it for him in your environment. Hopefully you will be able to prepare them now so you aren't walking into a war zone then.    
    • You can keep down the clutter by bringing a set of Nordicware microwave cook ware, r roll of butcher/freezer paper (makes gluten-free safe prep area on top of counters, tables, and a nice eating mat) spatula, plastic utensils, and perhaps a small griddle. I normally just do stuff that way and bring at home made muffins, cookies, etc to make myself feel good. I tend to stick to whole food omelettes and the premade stuff I bring to keep it simple and easy. PS the nordic ware has steamer dishes, rice cookers and microwave grill plates so you can cook salmon, rice, steamed veggies chicken all in a microwave.  I did a huge post a few years ago about me hosting my families thanksgiving. I even had instructions on how to make the turkey, and dressing.
    • Good to hear you tapered with your doctors assistance. Many drugs are very dangerous to stop suddenly and not just in terms of the withdrawl.  I tapered off all meds also at diagnosis and have only had to add back in my 'as needed' Alprazolam. I take that for something not celiac related though. Things can be up and down for a bit when we go gluten free. Hang in there.
    • My 13yo son was diagnosed by biopsy in August of this year.    We have not had to travel since he has been diagnosed.   I am concerned with holiday travel coming up.   My husband wants to visit his parents this year for our kids Christmas break but, I'm concerned about my son getting "glutened" while we stay at my in-laws.    I already know that they will think I'm being irrational if I insist on bringing a toaster and cookware for my son's meal prep.   They won't understand about him not being able to use the communal butter dish or serving utensils.   Fortunately, my sister-in-law says that there are gluten-free options at their small grocery store.   But, I'm worried about what to do, say and generally how to handle this.   I don't want to ruin my family's vacation.   I want to show my son that his life doesn't have to stop because he has Celiac.    I want him to still be able to travel and visit his friends and family! Any good advice out there as to how to handle this with my in-laws and how best to ensure my son doesn't get glutened without offending anyone?
