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.

    • Turkey, vacuum pack it, you can use it later for soups, stews, sandwiches, omelettes etc. Will keep for months in the freezer

      Dressing,
      You can use it in various ways my fun thing to do with it is moisten it back up a bit and load it into a waffle maker these can then be frozen or eaten when ever, dressing and sausage flavored waffles are AWESOME.
      Other leftovers can be put in a icecube tray and froze these cubes can be kept in a bag in the freezer, they are perfect for just putting a few in a bowl and zapping in the microwave later for quick meal, I love stir frying them in with eggs.

      Gravy, Gravy can be frozen in icecube trays, and kept in bags, you can then put these over bread, mash, etc and melt them over them later in the microwave or use in a soup like a stock to add flavor.

      Most Desserts can be frozen but around here I have hardly ever had any last the next week.

      Mashed potatoes, again these can be loaded into icecube trays frozen and kept in bags for quick reheat and use meals. Goes great in soups later to thicken them up. Green beans, after thanksgiving....you might want a new flavor thankfully the green beans can be incorporated into another cuisines using spices, in a soup or stir fried Asian style in coconut secret teriyaki sauces.
      Casserole dishes honestly freeze quite well in may cases, I have not had many survive the next week but often you can top them other other cuisine spices or sauces and fry them up in a skillet or reheat in a bowl for something different.  
    • Appreciate the thorough responses.    The stomach issues have been dreadful the past few weeks and brought hurrendous awakenings.the worst I have slept in a long time. I have had a few gluten foods in all honest. Maybe a mcdonalds twice in 2 months. Which isnt ideal. But I dont seem to feel anything afterwards (terrible excuse I know)  My biggest worries were my memory and cognitive behaviour! I was in London Bridge station and forgot where I was heading for 15 minutes. My memory is terrible, as is the concentration. So its a bit of a battle at the minute and I am flunking in my new job. I feel like as you said, neurologically I have deteriorated. Wit and brain function out the window. Considering I was a pretty switched on person. Balance and diziness at points. (all this on a gluten free diet after 4 months triggered me too my mcdonalds binge) ha ha.  I think the memory was the worst.    As you said about the brit medical side being useless. I think you are correct. I understand its the NHS and free etc. But this is just not considered a worry. Ive considered pulling myself into A and E this past few weeks because of the pain and I know this is the only way anyone will give me a thorough look over. I was also sent for a bone scan ( no reasoning as to why) But from research it seems to be for searching the nutrients in the bone?    Neurological side has been really i think what has been the toughest. My job requires an awful lot of high concentration and memory. Which when I fail at, causes stress, and then I am caught in the vicious cycle! Thanks for the help guys. Nice to meet some fellow people who can relate. I just feel like celiacs seem to know more then the doctors, which shows primitive practice in order to solve it. Once again, I would never know the NHS or doctors. I understand free health care is health care. But how low on the list this is, is a worry.    
    • I get vomiting with large amounts of gluten, and motion control loss, followed by either Diarrhea or constipation for a week was back in June 2016 when I decided to eat at a new place, I was on my floor unable to move vomiting so hard there was blood in it.
      NOW trace amounts I have gotten sense then and confirmed via Nima Gluten sensor then following lab testing have show that for me I get constipation, gas, bloat, and nerve issues with fog and peripherally neuropathy. The vomiting was missing from stuff confirmed at 6ppm, but obvious other nerve and fog issues were apparent (I kept dropping stuff and walking into things, mind kept on wondering and having those what was I doing moments, topped with backed up to hell with painful gas)
      Everyone is a little different and symptoms seem to change and evolve with time and type/form of exposure. I used to get a angry Mr, Hyde rage mode, and weeks of constipation and I used to not have the motor loss issues just brain fog and looping thoughts. It changes

      The cause is mostly due to your antibodies going up and your immune system attacking your own body, where it attacks, how, and to what degree greatly varies and after a exposure it can take weeks to wind down off the response and for the antibodies to go down. Just giving a basic idea here.

      Once you get exposed all you can do is treat the symptoms and wait it out, up supplementation of b vitamins, magnesium etc. Take pepto, or Imodium depending on what you have, teas and bone broths and try to eat easy to digest foods for the next week, Mushed up, blended, purreed, stewed/steamed super soft foods.
    • Hi everyone,  Once again I am here looking for your help. I was diagnosed with Celiac less than a year ago. It took quite a while to find out because I didn't experience any particular symptoms after eating gluten. I was always tired, had memory problems and was frequently ill; sometimes I had gastrointestinal issues, but they came and went.  Last night I went out for dinner, to a Thai place I trust(ed). Later, I could hardly sleep, I had horrible nightmares, those where you can hardly tell apart when you are awake or not. I expected to have high fever but nothing!  Today all my body aches, I am very tired and was nauseated all day. A little bit gasy and bloated as well.. Was I glutened?? Did I already clean my body enough that I now start to react in this fashion? If so, why does that happen?  There is also gastroenteritis going around, that would be the alternative explanation. I thought I excaped it. I also didn't vomit or have diahrrea like the rest.  What do you think?
    • With a positive EMA and a positive tTg, that is a slam dunk for Celiac Disease.  If you read about testing results, the odds are 99% that you have it. You also had very high numbers on your testing so that adds to the diagnosis.  At this point, the biopsy, if you have it done, is to check for the amount of damage, and is not needed for a diagnosis. I declined the biopsy as I was very sick at diagnosis.  The doctor who ran my blood panel said there was no doubt I had it due to the high numbers on my blood work.  I have been gluten-free for 12 years and every single doctor I have ever seen since then, who whined about me not having the biopsy, shut up about it once they saw my initial blood work.  The difference in my health since going gluten free was nothing short of amazing. I am sure you will have the same results, once you go gluten free.
