Happy anniversary ski :). Tough journey, but way better than the $#!% that came before I am guessing...

Mr Mindwarp is cooking up surprise in the kitchen and I RAN on the beach with my son this afternoon.

Second successful white potato at lunch today, and I had a few blueberries last 3 days.

Some days rock :)

Four years. Yay! It is impossible to imagine the moment it happens that down the road we'll be celebrating hearing it. Yet here we all are, happy as freshly slopped pigs.

 

Tonight I have a little ham I yanked outta the freezer to cook up. I'll make some roasted red potatoes with it and maybe some corn. Gravy is definitely on the list.

 

And hey, it was Bun's idea to crepe them. I just always made them as mini-muffin-y type things. Either way, they're mmmmm-azing.

My neighbor found Mrs Leepers cheeseburger mac at Walmart and picked it up for us along with a whole bag of gluten-free stuff so we made that for dinner tonight and it wasn't too bad. I had read somewhere that it was kinda salty but I don't always taste salt in my food anyway so I didn't notice any of that. Plus my little ones asked for thirds which doesn't always happen.

I also thought that the Mrs. Leeper's cheeseburger mac was okay. It wasn't awesome, and I only ended up buying it once because my husband didn't particularly like it. I can't have it right now because of the yeast, but maybe again sometime. It is pretty salty, but I have a thing for salt and other than that the flavor isn't bad. As a quick and easy meal it would be nice to be able to keep on hand to have once in a while.

Last night we had - Dali chicken, Pepper steak, Schezuan Beef, fried rice, & egg drop soup.  It was M's 17th Birthday and we went to Pf Changs!  They even brought him a little gluten-free flourless choclate cake with a candle.

 

Not sure what we are eating tonight.  Too much snow left to grill outside.  :angry:

 

 

You ladies with the beans - Take it easy there!  Hate to see you overindulge!  You got a designated driver?  :D

 

Always.  :D

 

 

Legumetastic news there ski!

I had roast chicken, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, mangetout and ...my 1st white potato this year! That was 2 hours ago, so we''ll see if I am a zombie tomorrow. It was baked and crispy and soft and fluffy.

Gaining things back really makes you appreciate the simple things.

 

Total appreciation for every single sunrise!  ;)

 

Lentils sound yummy! I haven't had any in a while, I think I'll make a lentil loaf this week. Glad that you can have them. And now you have a weapon of war too. :lol: Thanks for the idea.

 

It isn't just getting back foods, but celiac in general makes you appreciate the little things. Every little food. Every little activity. Every last win and victory we have. Every day there is a reason to celebrate. :D

 

Every little activity, indeed,  like swimming with dolphins this morning. They gave me kisses, Addy..They jumped through a hoop for me. They let me stroke their bellies. They danced and "sang" for me--as I was in the circle and the dolphins chittered and people sang Happy Birthday to me. (they said it was just like having a reBirthday, so why not?) I did not argue.

Yup, I did it and I cried and I laughed and squealed like a little girl.

Total victory. Mega-- joy. If I can figure out how to post a pic, I will. I'm exhausted, but it was totally worth it.

oh baby, they rock like mad!!! whoohoo!!!!!!!!! :lol:

 

I am pilfering wifi from a Starbucks in Key Largo, so when I get to the place next week with wifi, I'll write some more.

Suffice to say, this is so awesome.

Bunny Yay!

I can't eat them yet, but my sons will be extremely happy to try them...so thanks to you and Addie - I've been making crepes as substitute flour tortillas - they are alright but am excited too hear of another option!

And yes this flipping disease does make us appreciate everything - painless steps are my favorite which is close to a tie with finding out I might finally get a few foods back after four years of continually losing foods!

Lentils may have made me a bit tired as most legumes do, but I did have a very restful sleep - early here so I'm going to dream up a nice Sunday dinner for my family - Dad joining us twice a week since Mom's in the hospital - thinking Santa Maria Style TriTip - possibly with quesadillas and a bluberry cheesecake :)

 

Edited to add....Today is the fourth anniversary of the day I first learned the words Celiac Disease and Tissue Transglutaminase IgA....wow what a ride it has been -- off to walk six miles in celebration :D

 

 

Happy Anniversary, my friend........you are so inspirational and I'm  ecstatic we are "getting back" instead of continually "taking out".

Rock on, sister--enjoy that walk!! xx

:D I am so happy for you! There are little victories, that bring us smiles every day. Then there are these, the things that are so joyous that they bring us tears and laughter and memories of a lifetime. I'm actually so happy for you I cried a little. :ph34r: Enjoy your time and I'm sure we'll all be happy to hear more about your awesome vacation when you have a spare minute for us.

 

Tonight I'm getting around to those lentils. Lentil loaf and Alton Brown's stovetop mac. Neither of which I've ever made before but hey, it is so hard to go wrong with an Alton Brown recipe. Absolute, worst case scenario... everything goes horribly wrong and I end up eating quesadillas and tiramisu ice cream. I had planned on making tapioca pudding today but then when I was at Wal-mart they were doing a 50% off all clearance and I couldn't help shopping for new workout pants and shirts that I've been meaning to buy. Too tired now to do pudding, I guess tomorrow.

I have baby romaine with lime vinaigrette and buffalo sirloin. Probably with some kefir for dessert, and a small piece of very dark chocolate.

Happy Re-Birthday to YOU :D

Swimming and playing with new friends - I can't think of a better celebration - except them singing to you too! So happy for you dear friend - you deserve this and many more wonderful moments to come - You DID IT! Can't wait to see photo :)

Passed a little milestone of my own today - first midterm in a couple decades and I - wait for it - nailed it - seems once you remove the celi's fog there is a functioning brain in there after all ;)

The little legume trial has been shelved for a bit - lots of meat and a few new squash to try this week - am loving my new produce market - I may walk this time as I don't need to buy as much today - about 3 miles RT which is fine for a bag - not such a great idea when I fill four or five bags!

Well i just tossed the coffee cake together... and noticed once i put the batter in there was little black specks in the batter. Hmmm... I'm 100% positive its not bugs or whathave you (as the mix had been sealed, and swollen due to altitude). I'm thinking it had to do with the rice flour? Kinda like how there is still some of the hull on white rice some times.

 

Thoughts?

I find that some of the rice flour mixes have little dark brown specks in them. My hub calls them bugs but its just the rice flour.

Thats what i thought. I picked one out and it was so small that there would be no way it could be a bug and kinda brownish. Also in different shapes lol.

I'm sooooooo full. :wacko:

 

Yeah, the coffee cake was a success. Tweaked the topping a bit by cutting the flour amount in half and adding a bit more butter... Now it tastes more like those crunchy toppings.

 

Yeah i was bad and had seconds on it. I regret nothing.

 

I did have a nice beef and cabbage soup before i got into it so i did have a good dinner.

a couple of Redbridge and some Schar shortbread cookies. They go better with wine but I didn't want to open any.

    • My son is 5 and his symptoms are all behavioral and neurological. If he eats a few pretzels he will develop something called a stereotypy where his fingers become sort of stuck in distorted positions for days. If he eats gluten he also experiences auditory and visual hallucinations, insomnia, loss of balance and fine motor, periods of confusion (doesn't know where he is), dialated pupils, chronic post nasal drip, keratosis pilaris covering torso, extreme behavioral issues, constipation and bloating. We've been to 3 neurologists, 2 allergists, an endocrinologist, psychological, psychiatrist, dermatologist,  infectious disease specialist and soon will see a gastroenterologist. He's tested negative for celiac and doesn't have the gene which would indicate gluten as an issue for him. Despite these facts, we entirely removed gluten and dairy from his diet and he is a normal happy playful child again, living the life he should be living.  He's had a few instances of dietary mishaps at school which were difficult to recover from. We implemented the AIP diet which for us included no grains (no corn, rice or quinoa), no dairy, no legumes (especially soy), no eggs and limited nightshades. Basically, we have been eating only vegetables, fruits, meats and nuts. Nothing processed. It works. Now we are at the point of adding things back into his diet and it's going well. We've determined that he's sensitive to a particular baking mix brand called Simple Mills. So there are only two possibilities to this a) Simple Mills brand isn't as gluten free as it needs to be or b)my son is actually sensitive to baking soda.  I also think he might be dealing with intestinal permeability or "leaky gut". I've been reading about a protein called zonulin and I question whether that could be a potential biomarker in our case. Prayers for your daughter. If you think it's a dietary trigger then you are right and I encourage you to never give up. You will find an answer if you keep looking. I promise.  
    • Well.... it can be... the plastic lid on the lovely chicken salad you brought for lunch sticks, you pull too hard and it, and half your salad going flying all over the company computer?  
    • @cyclinglady I heard that there were problems with Armour Thyroid when it came to gluten a few years ago. I thought it was no longer safe? @MegamaniacI had forgot to put that in my original post that I have a lot of issues with anxiety as well. I've never actually been officially diagnosed with a type of depression/anxiety/etc, but I've had problems with that ever since I was pretty young (I think before puberty). I'm sorry to hear about your medical field experience. I've actively sought out doctors (and got lucky having a great primary dr) over the past few years since very few seem to know much about it. The fact that a doctor would laugh at a patient for anything is pretty infuriating. Sorry to hear that. I went to a gastro that barely listened to a word I was saying and only offered a short term "solution" so I never went back to him.
    • He left a voicemail (which I was really thankful for bc it is SO hard to get ahold of someone) and said the celiac panel came back positive and told me to start a gluten free diet and asked me to call him. He said he was going to set me up with a nutritionist. I will definitely check out the newbie page. I am in the navy and I'm pretty sure I get kicked out for this. The first grocery trip was pretty difficult for me. I almost cried thinking about how different my life will be. Thanks for the support everyone ! 
    • No I don't know what that is.  The school's been understanding but I just can't have her hurting the other kids were attacking the principal so I've decided to keep her home until she starts acting normal again.   She has not been officially diagnosed with celiacs we have an appointment soon.  She is allergic to gluten wheat and milk.  It seems like the gluten or the wheat affect her mood greatly.
