I'm in the same boat you are...I don't have a clue!!! :(

I ended up doing boneless skinless chicken on the stove-top seasoned with Paprika, onion powder, garlic powers, chili powder, tumeric, Kosher salt and pepper...sort of my own version of seasoning salt or a rotisserie type blend. Then I made some cooked baby carrots with brown sugar and a touch of honey. And for a starch I microwaved a bag of Green Giant corn. Boring...but we ate it and I have some leftover's for tommorrow's lunch (always my goal).

That actually sounds good to me...now that I have eaten, LOL! However I only have frozen Ahi Tuna steaks and rice cakes. I don't suppose they would make good sandwiches. :ph34r:

Well, I did it! Shrimp scampi, brown rice (had a serving in the freezer) and fresh asparagus. Not bad for a spur-of-the-moment miracle. :lol:

I really need to do better planning to get out of a boring rut.

ETA: And a piece of chocolate chip cake later this evening.

That would work for me!!! At least it would be a lot better than the sandwich I had last night on my inconsistent quality Udi's bread.

It's a bundt cake from the Cake Mix Doctor Bakes Gluten-Free and calls for a 15-oz box of gluten-free yellow cake mix (I used BC), . Can you have that or does it have soy in it?

The new ones do have soy but I have one in my pantry from before they added soy to the ingredients list. Been looking for a use for it so that recipe would be perfect.

I'll have to type it out (probably tomorrow). In the meantime, she has 3 gluten-free recipes on her website you might like to check out. http://www.cakemixdo...ts/gluten-free/ I think I'm going to be pretty pleased with her gluten-free cookbook.

I have no idea! Argh, I'm in a rut and I need ideas...I currently have ground chicken, boneless skniless chicken breast, Tuna steaks and ground beef and none of it sounds good to me right now....Maybe a veggie stirfry instead? I have fresh summer squash, carrots, cereley, onion, garlic, frozen peppers, frozen peas, frozen brocoli... I'm so tired of rice though. I have baby red poatoes but I don't want to heat up the hosue with oven roasting them...will have to make them in the slow cooker tommorrow I guess. I have some dried yellow split peas to use up...Any ideas anyone? what is everyone else having tonight?

How about meatballs with your ground meat? You can spice them up several ways! Eat with the veggies grilled?? Can you eat quinoa? that would go good with a stir fry. Glutenfreegoddess has several tastey recipes for quinoa. I often pound my chicken breast thin and stuff them with herbs and veggies I like. I lay the chicken out put the herbs and veggies on and roll them up to cook. How about some chicken and split pea soup in your slow cooker? I know you don't want to heat things up, but you also have a shepherbs pie going on. I'm kinda stuck eating the same thing as well. One more, potato hash with the ground meats!

Thanks for the ideas! I can't eat quinoa but everything else is doable--well except the grilled veggies--I live in an apt and we are not allowed grills. I think I am going to make some Dahl in the slow cooker tommorrow. I found this recipe to try: http://stuffimakemyhusband.blogspot.com/2008/06/slow-cooker-split-pea-dal.html

Thanks for the other ideas though, it has been a while since I did a shepherd's pie and I might just do meat and veggie kebabs in the oven if it is cooler later this week.

Tonight I had a bunless burger, sweet potato fries and the leftover asparagus from last night.

Sometimes I wish "people food" came in 30 lb. bags! :lol:

Do you just add water? Or does it require seasoning? :blink:

Sorry, I had to disable my PM. I was having some trouble using it. Don't worry about sharing the recipe. I will see if I can get that book from my local library.

It does! 30 lb bags of rice :) It takes forever to use up though. And you're right it needs LOTS of seasoning! :P

LOL, Sylvia! I've wished you could just take a food pill, never thought of a 30 lb. bag of human food!

Bearing that in mind, I wasn't in the mood to cook tonight. This is wierd, but it worked. Grilled chicken breasts with Indian Tandori rub, white rice, and the left over navy bean soup I cooked this weekend. Had the soup over the rice, which sounds gross, but it was one of those meals that you aren't optimistic about and end up saying, "wow this is an A-minus!" Not a D, not even a C for comfort food.

I'm having the left over sliced grilled chicken tomorrow for lunch over romaine lettuce with sliced cucumbers, dried cherries, shredded carrot and lemon viniagrette. I'm out of sunflower seeds or they'd be in there. Love that sweet, salty, tart combo.

Wishing you all good adventures in cooking...

Right, it would take forever...especially when I live alone! And not a very balanced meal. Sometimes I think my dog eats better than I do! :lol: It was one of those nights after working in the yard and too tired to cook.

Last night a food pill would have worked very well! Sometimes I have weird strange unusual meals but hey, whatever works! :P I think tonight I may do a stir-fry...a clean-out-the-fridge stir-fry. Or a big salad. At least I'm thinking about it and it's only 7 a.m.

Yeah, cooking should be an adventure...and sometimes it is! But not last night.

I roasted a turkey last night so tonight will be leftover turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and salad.

I think I will make myself a homemade corn tortilla and put some turkey, cheese, guacamole, sour cream and mango salsa on it. I had that for lunch today and it was good enough to repeat for dinner.

I did considerably better tonight...guess it helps to read this thread at 7 a.m. I made a clean-out-the-fridge stir-fry (marinated chicken breast strips, celery, onion, mushrooms and broccoli in a sauce of San-J Tamari, ginger, garlic, cornstarch and sesame oil) and rice.

Will have pineapple a bit later.

    • Here is a partial list of what I no longer suffer from as a result of not eating wheat. Some like the sleep apnea and gerd and back pain and addiction to alcohol were almost immediate. The foot pain is improved to just numbness sometimes. My long term depression went away when I added vitamin D 10,000 iu a day for a year, but the improvement started almost immediately. Muscle tone and energy improved when I added iodine. one sheet sushi seaweed a day. My Fibromyalgia is controlled with 15 mg oral Prednisone a day. I remember as a kid waking up and having to pick the dried mucuos off the roof of my mouth. That is gone and for the first time in my life I am a nose breather. Drink lots of water to help with the mucous if it is thick. Some mornings mine is like rubber cement. I need to quit smoking now.  You can improve have faith, but healing takes time. Stay the course. A Romaine lettuce salad everyday helped the gut pain. Gerd shortness of breath sleep apnea back pain snoring prostrate hypertrophy contact lens protein buildup night vision improved cataracts reduced head hair growth foot pain sleeping no more than 2 hours at a stretch slow healing no energy. Pretty much bed ridden. 
    • Celiac Disease is damage to the nooks and crannies in our intestines leading to malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies with all the various symptoms that make it so hard to diagnose. Then you add years of the antacids, antibiotics, Tylenol, opioids, alcohol, etc., each with their own particular side effects and damage. Now you've got a toxic environment that kills off the beneficial bacteria increasing malnutrition. Theoretically you can eat anything except gluten. But wheat is so ubiquitous in our diet and economy there are unlimited opportunities for cross contamination. So read the label. Use common sense. If there isn't a label it doesn't have wheat so you can eat. Big Food likes to add wheat to everything because it is addictive and helps them ensure you can't eat just one. Why on earth else would Campbells Tomato Soup have wheat listed as an ingredient? Meantime your body is in distress from malnutrition so you need to be sure to replenish D3, and Iodine for starters and treat and support any other symptoms while you heal. Good nutrition without wheat is the only way to stop progression. And just like chewing paint chips made with lead is bad, so is food with wheat.   well said, doesn't need a label.
    • We use pure cherry juice with our snow cone machine. Makes for a nice dessert after dinner.
    • Hi Kurasz, How's it going?  Any change for the amazingly better?  Or slightly better?  
      If not, hang in there, and keep praying! :)
    • Garden of Life brand Dr. Formulated Organic Fiber. It's certified gluten free. Also free of psyllium husk, dairy and soy. Also found that just simply increasing fiber intake works wonders. Perhaps try skipping a protein for at least one meal and fill up on veggies and fruits.
