I've used regular white rice flour in similar circumstance -- worked fine.

If you have an Oriental grocery in your area, they'll carry sweet rice.

We had grilled salmon tonight with chopped rosemary/mustard/brown sugar basting, & mashed parmesan potatoes with a salad. We're always a day late, last night's dinner was pretty awful.

After grocery shopping the homemade mac and cheese turned into mac and cheese from a box. :( At least I have daffodil cake with lemon curd with which to drown my sorrows.

I found some sweet rice flour. I was trying to avoid going to the Asian store as it was out of the way.

Last night we had chicken tacos. I used iceberg lettuce for my shell. Tonight we are having some experimental appetizers. I am having people over next Friday and haven't decided what to make yet.

A little late for Valentines Day but I just saw this:

Aren't you old enough to have learned not to do this sort of thing? You just.... don't say things like this, it is practically like hexing yourself.

Eat this and feel better. sendchickensoupplz.gif?1

Tonight is easy dinner for me to make but sooooo good. Ham and eggs, and if I'm feeling spunky maybe even some pancakes. Or a German pancake, but that seems silly with eggs. Maybe arepas since they taste so similar to English muffins. But like I said, a bread-like object depends on how spunky I feel later.

Well, he was until he got it ,too. :unsure: Nothing says true love like two people simultaneously hacking themselves silly all night long

I wish you could come too, hon... but I'd rather you came when I am well so we can play together in the kitchen!!.

Okay, well, I managed to work up the "oomph" to throw in a roasted chicken. It got a quickie butter, thyme, lemon, garlic treatment of some sort.

and maybe some potatoes and carrots. That took all the energy I had stored up.

whew. I'm toast.

Honestly, guys.........I'd rather be glutened than be "sick". This "regular people sick" thing sucks.

Thanks for asking, sweetie. Yes, a little bit ! Hubs --er, not so much. Poor guy.

I was just about to start throwing together a chicken noodle soup.

We do not really have appetites. :unsure:

I do not feel so wiped out today, so that must be a good sign!

So a while ago Addy posted about making cheese bread without buying a mix, using

the recipe from the following link

 

http://www.ourbestbites.com/2011/02/quick-brazilian-cheese-rolls-pao-de-queijo-2/

 

 

Well, it's awesome. Piece of advice? Don't accidentally double the amount of oil called

for in the recipe......

Thanks for that link, JN.  I missed the gluten-free Expo here because I am recovering from cellultis.

 

We had grilled pork tenderloin, steamed pea pods, roasted potatoes and homemade applesauce.  (An apple a day...wishing...)

So - it is cold many places - flu bugs flying willy nilly and a good cheesebread recipe - hold the double oil!

Road trip needed! Life has gotten in the way of me snapping pics of candidates but I have spied them everywhere I walk and run! Yes these joints haven't handled the impact of running in over 20 years!

Dinner was almonds and dried pears in the movie theater - two men picked up mex on the way home - other had safe encores.

IH - hang in there and dream of the vacation ahead - hmmm - where is that countdown?

Glad you liked them! I tried them tonight with a little butter added and they didn't rise as well but the flavor was awesome with the garlic and basil. Great replacement for garlic bread.

We had fish, fries, hush puppies and slaw. OH MY GOSH was it good, I was in HEAVEN! We ordered the hush puppy mix from from a Grist mill from back home and it makes the BEST hush puppies we've ever had! I just recently realized we could order it online. We did add finely chop onion to the batter. HAVE MERCY. They were VERY light and fluffy and naturally gluten free because they don't process any wheat in there! We also ordered grits, cornbread mix and rice. It is the best we've ever had. I would share a photo but it won't let me post it unless I have an URL.

In case anyone is interested,

http://palmettofarms.com/

we are having exactly that tonight, except no hushpuppies :(  but i have sweet onions to make onion rings :)

 

i got glutened by a cupcake for my birthday - haven't got the heart to tell my daughter that the award-winning gluten-free cupcake must have only won because it must have been judged on 'flavor' and not for being celiac friendly  :(  annnnnnd i spent 3 days blaming everything else i ate/stress/blah blah blah on what is UNMISTAKABLY gluten - nothing wipes me out like that - after 2 plus years, i still second guess.......  a harsh reminder!  so, went into "safe mode" and finally got 'reset'  

 

hey - everybody is eating strawberries!  so, they are ok??  i thought they packed them in wheat straw ?/  is there a way to tell ugh i sure miss my strawberries

You can eat strawberries. I saw them growing in California. They don't use straw. They use plastic. Even if they used straw it probably wouldn't be from wheat as they would have to haul it in from a long distance if it were wheat. Not very cost effective.

Dinner tonight was pork chops, carrots boiled in chicken broth, baked beans, rice & gravy. Yum! Everyone ate the gluten-free gravy with no complaints! Love having my whole family gluten-free so my daughter doesn't have to worry about what to eat at home. She gets enough to worry about everywhere else!

    • Weak positives can be attributed to a gluten free diet.  All celiac testing (blood and intestinal biopsies) require you to be on a gluten free diet (8 to 12 weeks blood, 2 to 4 for biopsies).   The genetic test (you can be on a gluten diet) will reveal if you have the chance of developing celiac disease.  Some 30% of the population carries the celiac genes.  Then...they are a few celiacs that actually have different genes.   If you have been eating gluten prior to the blood tests for three months, your test results should be valid.  The next step would be to obtain an endoscopy to confirm villi blunting.  If that is not possible, you might just go back to eating gluten free to see if your symptoms resolve again.  Never  eat gluten again.   Gluten free need not be expensive.  Eat meats, fish, veggies, nuts, beans,  and fruit.  Rice is allowed and is usually inexpensive.   I wish you well.  
    • Another variable that should be considered......old age and reduced eyesight!  We do not have a dishwasher, so we hand wash.  It appears that I am not washing as well at night.  This might be fine for a good gut bionome (referencing a study in Sweden, I think), but bad from a cross contamination perspective with gluten.   http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2015/02/23/387553285/kids-allergies-and-a-possible-downside-to-squeaky-clean-dishes Bottom line?  Wear your reading glasses and improve your lighting!  You may consider transitioning to a 100% gluten-free household as reduced vision and dementia kick in.  😊
    • Welcome!   Here is a link to our Newbie 101 thread that you might find useful.   I can only comment on those foods that I have in my home or have purchased. 1.  Nutella is and it states it in the label. 2.  Skippy PB is gluten-free (not stated, but ingrediants are). 3.  Soy sauce.  It should state it on the label as gluten free or do not eat it.   Most soy sauce is NOT gluten free as it contains wheat.   4.  Maple syrup is gluten-free if it is pure (only one ingrediant).  Otherwise read the ingredients. 5.  Fresh minced meat should be gluten-free if you prepared and cross contamination did not occur in your kitchen (e.g. Pot, cutting board, etc.).  Not sure if this is a canned product. Bottom line is that you have to read labels carefully.  In the beginning it is best to eat fresh foo you prepared.  The. Add in processed food as you learn to read labels and determine if you have other intolerances to foods other than gluten (very common for celiacs or NCGI).  
    • In the beginning, you might find ANY gluten free bread abhorrent.  So, you might wait a few months to give yourself time to forget what wheat bread tasted like. 
    • In my brief research, I did not find any public papers indicating villi blunting for Losartan specifically.   There was research and a law suit on olmesartan (other celiac.com members have pointed out).  Dr. Hart may have been making clinical observations or has access to medical research that is not public (or free).  He is/was located at the University of Chicago.   Are you still having GI symptoms despite the gluten free diet and your supplements?   If not, this BP drug may not be affecting you.  I understand your concern, so you might talk with your doctor or pharmacist about an alternative drug or re-visit the need to take this drug.  Make sure they know all the supplements you are taking in addition to other prescription drugs.   Talk also with your GI about your suspected or continued malabsorption issues.   Have you had follow-up biopsies?   I understand your concern.  I hope you find a solution that satisfies you and your doctor.
