My adventures in meat continue with a pot roast recipe that looks easy enough that I can do it: http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/pot_roast/

I'm making it in a crockpot - I didn't have any red wine so instead I used 1/4c beef stock 1/4c sherry and I added 1 tsp cinnamon as one commenter suggested (I love cinnamon!). This is my first pot roast ever so we'll see how it turns out! I also plan to add carrots and new potatoes in the last hour.

HAWAIIAN HAYSTACKS. Man I love my crockpot. Makes working and being your stereotypical housewife so much easier.

Recipe? Heck yes, I will post it...

Cut the chicken up into small cubes and toss into the crockpot.Chop up half an onion and toss that in. (The yellow onion that is out on the top shelf.)There are some cream of chx soup mixes in the cupboard. Take two of those (they are in little box like things) and put them in the crockpot.Add the rest of the open soy milk carton and the rest of the open rice milk carton to the soup and chicken mix. Add about an eighth of a cup of arrowroot starch.Spice with Salt, Pepper, Poultry Seasoning (not too shabby on the poultry seasoning)Turn crockpot on high, and then when you leave this afternoon turn it on low.(Don't forget to stir now and then... Especially after you put the arrowroot in)

Sorry I copied the recipe from my email when I sent it to my husband so its got more notes that I don't care to take out. (For the record you do not have to use soy milk, I personally prefer rice milk, but I had just a little bit left in the carton so I said use that too. Sorry I don't have exact measurements... I rarely do)

Hormel flavored pork loin with oven roasted potatoes and broccoli was last night's dinner. Tonight I am being lazy and having frozen gluten-free pizza.

The Betty Crocker liveglutenfreely website is a great resource for recipes. I have used a number of them with great success.

I had a big bowl of leftover cranberry salad and a prepared falafel wrap from the grocery store. The wrap wasn't gluten-free but I don't need gluten-free. The store does make prepared falafel patties and I do get those sometimes. They are gluten-free. I also get some lettuce and tomato slices from their prepared food bar. We make sandwiches out of them. I put a patty between two tomato slices and daughter uses the lettuce on the outside because she dislikes tomato.

Daughter had some things from the salad bar and again a toasted cheese sandwich.

Tomorrow night? Have to take daughter to the dance studio for a private lesson. Have to leave early and pack her a dinner. I will come home to eat. For her I will chop up a prepared Hormel chicken breast in gravy, make some instant mashed potatoes and also send in some baby carrots and apple slices if I still have some. If I don't, then some applesauce.

Not sure what I will have. I have a can of chili, some frozen hamburger patties, Ian's chicken nuggets, refried beans and corn tortillas. Also have some shredded lettuce and of course the baby carrots. Will be one something from that list.

I got called in to work a temp job today so it will be a super easy "hamburger goulash". I chopped an onion, put it in the crock pot with a pound of ground beef and a can of Progresso cream of mushroom soup and some additonal mushrooms. I will serve with Sam's Mill corn bow ties or microwaved baked potatoes and a yet to be named green vegetable. Have not decided yet........

Oven roasted pot roast with carrots, onions, potatoes. I put lipton onion soup in the water, and made gravy with potato starch. I made a brussel sprouts casserole with dried cranberries and almond slivers.

Be careful with the Lipton's onion soup. They have changed the recipe and the last box I looked at had barley.

Tonight it's chili in the crock pot: hamburger, onions, green pepper, kidney beans, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper. I'll add some cheese on top.

Green salad with homemade salad dressing: lemon juice, shallots, mint, mustard, salt, olive oil.

That's me on my gluten free/specific carb diet. 6 months on the SCD diet, 6 to go! I can't wait to have chocolate. Whoever posted the brownie in a mug recipe... omg, I hate you. :-) But I copied it into a document so I can make it on May 23, 2011.

Homemade veggie-beef soup pulled from my stash in the freezer. I also made banana bread and have already eaten 3 slices. Argh! ph34r.gif I had planned to have that later tonight. Guess "later" will be a couple of clementines.

I have a question. I have some leftover pot roast, a box of opened beef stock I don't think I'll use within a week, and some leftover tinkyada noodles. Can I made a soup out of this stuff? Or should I freeze it?

Yes or Yes.

One thing I like to do with left over stock is freeze it in measured amounts that you use for a recipe. If you make something that calls for 1/4 cup, freeze it in 1/4 cup sizes.

Leftover pot roast makes the best soup! I would also add some veggies such as onions carrots and celery at a minimum. Maybe also green beans, corn and peas. Heat it through and then add the noodles since they are already cooked.

I have a beef chuck roast in my freezer and plan to use part of it for veggie-beef soup. It makes great soup! I'll have some of it as a roast (browned and then put in my crockpot) and then use a portion of the meat for soup by adding celery, onion, tomatoes and a bag of mixed frozen veggies. If need be, I'll add a box of Progresso beef broth. Most anything goes. I live alone so no way could I just eat it as a roast. Last time I made soup like this I used a package of beef stew meat. Couldn't live with my crockpots!

In years past I used to make beef stroganoff out of leftover roast and serve it over rice or noodles (avoiding dairy right now so that's out).

Hmm I'll have to try those soup suggestions. Thanks guys :)

Tonight I am using my crockpot again, I love that thing! I'm cooking a whole chicken in there (though I bought it already in pieces). I'm following this recipe http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/baked-slow-cooker-chicken/Detail.aspx but I added in some potatos and carrots at the bottom.. just realized now I forgot onions, oops.. then I added butter to the top, freshly squeezed juice of an orange and I also tossed in what was left of the orange itself, a drizzle of honey, extra paprika. I have no idea if it will taste good or not.

    • cyclinglady, I think Joseph is hoping to exclude celiac disease.   I feel for him, as I also had a hard time accepting my daughter's celiac.      I had this gene test done hoping our GI doctor made a terrible mistake.   But now I have triple prove that my daughter really does have it! I agree with you and others, that if biopsy confirmed celiac disease, you do have celiac disease. (But on occasion, doctors can be wrong, right?) However, I have a distant relative (not related by blood) who thought she had celiac diease for 10 years (no biopsy done), lived a strict gluten free life style, but still suffered from health issues, ended up in the mayo clinic, and found out that she did not have celiac.    She did not have the celiac gene.
    • Our doctor ordered the Prometheus Celiac Plus test for us.   It is some sort of in depth celiac blood test.   This test report showed  which celiac gene my daughter has.   I think you can ask your GI for a celiac blood test with EMA.   When I asked for the EMA test, we got this Celiac plus results back.   I believe Prometheus is the name of the lab. Our insurance paid for this test.   If your insurance won't pay for it, I know there is a lab in Colorado that offer this test for a few hundred bucks.   You have to google for it.   I forgot their name.
    • Why?  Some 35% of the population carries the genes that could develop into celiac disease.  But only a few actually develop it.  It is used to exclude celiac disease and not to diagnose it.  There are some outlier genes too that have been discovered recently, so the gene test is not perfect.   My daughter has tested negative on the antibodies test.  She will have to get retested in the future. But we will not get the gene test.  It may impact her ability to get life insurance or maybe even health!  Just something to consider.  
    • It will turn around, but it probably is going to take more time.  Yes, adhering to the gluten-free diet is critical,  but what doctors fail to tell you is that is can take time for antibodies to decrease.  For some it is a few weeks and for others months to years.   It sounds like you are doing everything right.  Remember, her gut is damaged and eating anything can hurt to digest.  You might consider taking her off dairy for a few weeks until you see improvement.  Then add back in starting with products with the least amount of lactose (e.g. yogurt). Many celiacs are temporarily lactose intolerant.  It might help with the nausea.   When I accidentally get exposed to gluten, I stick with soups and stews, even cooked fruit, like applesauce because it hurts to eat!   Are you sure the medication she is taking is gluten free?  Did you call and confirm with the manufacturer?  Did she have nausea befor she was diagnised?  The side effect of this medication is nausea.  Did the GI prescribe?   Hang in there!  
    • My 10 year old daughter has been on the gluten-free diet for 6 weeks, and she's feeling worse than before the diagnosis. She has very little appetite, has frequent nausea in the evening, and has lost a pound or two that she really can't afford to lose. Our whole household is gluten free except for a few prepackaged items kept in a different room, so I think there's very little chance of cross-contact. She has been put on cyproheptadine to increase appetite and is trying valiantly to eat more, but she's just not hungry and it's very stressful for her, and all of us. She's eating peanut butter, pediasure, avocado, cheese, meat, and all the other calorie-dense foods we can think of.  No oats, not too much processed food. Can anyone give us suggestions or hope that this will turn around?
