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.

Your dinner was a lot healthier than mine! I panicked at the last minute and made some Tinkyada pasta and marinara sauce. Probably could have made a salad to go with it but all I really wanted was the warm pasta.

Sounds yummy...and I'm hungry for pasta. Here I am once again reading this early in the morning. I'm going to take that package of Italian sausage out of the freezer and make spaghetti sauce for tonight. See, I really do need to read this thread early. :D

What a fun thread!

Last night I made baked chicken and rice with green beans for dessert I had homemade vanilla ice cream with sliced strawberries. Tonight I am making taco salads.

Sylvia, which brand of italian sausage do you buy?

I bought Johnsonville Italian Sausage with Sweet Basil, which will be added to a Classico pasta sauce (doctored up with more herbs, etc and put in a crockpot to simmer all day).

Tonight we're having Ahi Tuna Steaks and Baked Sweet Potatoes ("baked" in the slow cooker) and probably something green, Steamed Brocoli? Green beans and almonds? Spinach? I'll decide that at the last minute as usual. :D

Tonight is breakfast for dinner night. So I'll make a fritatta with potatoes, mushrooms, peppers and Jarlsburg cheese, a couple pounds of bacon and some gluten free pancakes.

Sadly nothing is quick for 7 people. Breakfast for dinner seems to actually take longer than most because it takes forever to cook that many pancakes. 2 pounds of bacon, 21 pancakes, 18 eggs, 1/2 a pound of cheese, 1/2 a pound of mushrooms, 3 large potatoes and 2 peppers. Add in a liter of milk and 2 liters of juice as well.

At least there should be enough leftovers for a couple people to have lunch the next day.

Throw everything except the pancakes, juice, and most of the milk in the crock pot the night before and do a slow cooked breakfast casserole. Maybe precook the bacon, but you could bake it and chop it up.

Dang, that would be difficult! I guess it's my emergency meal since I live alone. I like Jestgar's idea of using a crockpot. Or even to bake it in a large casserole...anything to make it easier for you.

Hopefully one of those people to have leftovers for lunch the next day is YOU! :)

Yum! I've done breakfast in the crockpot several times with great success. I think I will make an overnight breakfast casserole this weekend.

I also wanted to mention you can supposedly make "pancakes" in the slow cooker too: http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2008/05/crockpot-pancakes-recipe.html

These don't really look like panckase though but I bet they would feed a hungry bunch just fine. I have not tried it, but I have tried the Trader Joes gluten-free pancake mix and I really like it.

Here's some other good breakfast casseroles:

I bought Johnsonville Italian Sausage with Sweet Basil, which will be added to a Classico pasta sauce (doctored up with more herbs, etc and put in a crockpot to simmer all day).

This sounds delish! I was not aware that Johnsonville sausages were gluten free. I have never tried the Classico sauces. I usually make my own sauce BUT, that would be great to have on hand when I don't feel like making it. It takes a long time to do. Do you eat this over gluten free pasta? I wonder what it would taste like over white rice. I live in the middle of nowhere and the closest place to get gluten free pasta is 90 miles (round trip)

I love crockpot meals! Anyone have any good recipes?

How old are your kids? I cook for seven too (when I cook, that is). I usually figure 2 lbs of meat, at least a dozen eggs and a loaf a bread for toast (of course that was before going gluten free).

I was recently diagnosed and I am having the most difficult time trying to figure out what to cook for everyone (with just me doing gluten free).

Yes, Johnsonville sausages are gluten-free...but I check the label every time I buy them. Who knows if there might be some that aren't. I'm too lazy to make my own sauce but I always end up doctoring them up. I do have it over gluten-free pasta but see no reason rice wouldn't work. Tonight I used Mrs. Leeper's spaghetti (brown rice) for the first time but think I prefer Tinkyada. Do you have a Wal-Mart near you? I've gotten Heartland gluten-free pasta there.

Why don't you try to do a lot of naturally gluten-free meals? I'm eating a lot of the same things I ate before going gluten-free...meat or fish, potatoes or rice, veggies, salads. My chili has always been gluten-free, pork and sauerkraut with mashed potatoes, soups, etc.. You might want to read through this entire thread and look at some of the recipes posted, too. I get in a rut and get lots of ideas that are posted here. I think I need to get on here early every morning so I don't postpone trying to figure out what to have for dinner at zero hour. :P

Dinner tonight was grilled marinated Tilapia with mango salsa & black and small red beans (that's what the bag said) over leftover rice.

I didn't have the foresight to pre-soak the beans, but they took less than 1/2 hour to cook in the pressure cooker.

Because I forgot to pack the chicken for lunch yesterday, I took it today. OMG! Cold grilled chicken tandori over greens is even better than hot! It was yummy with a squirt of lime and some EVO sprinkled over it. It may become my go to summer dinner salad. :D

does anyone have a good chicken soup recipie? I was thinking of boiling a chicken dicing it up tossing that back in the broth (making a big batch to freeze), and adding some rice. Any other ideas for it?

I just start off with leeks, carrot, celery sauteed in some oil with seasoning - then you can cook the chicken in the water you add so that it gets extra flavour. You could try gluten free noodles instead of rice (either elbow or break up some spaghetti), or you can add other veggies like swiss chard or green beans.

You have to share it with 6 other people though. 3 of them have to be teenagers and one of them has to be a man who just got home from a 2 hour workout. I think I got 3 pieces. :blink:

I make this soup with a whole chicken all the time:

http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2008/11/crockpot-turkey-and-wild-rice-soup.html

I've always meant to freeze it but there is never enough left over. My husband and I finish it off in two-three days.

    • Newly diagnosed, who do I tell? I'm not talking friends & family. I am normally private about health matters but I feel it seems I need to tell so many people. Does anyone have a list? Some are obvious like doctor and dentist but one came up for me the other day when my massage therapist asked if I'd had any changes in my health and I said no but halfway through the session realized that, "Duh I should have mentioned Celiac! Clearly the lotion used could be an issue." So who is on your list to tell? Here's who I have so far: Doctor(s) Dentist Restaurant Servers Massage Therapists Hair Stylist Babysitters, Petsitters or Housesitters (anyone who might bring or prepare food in my home)      
    • I feel the same way! Newly diagnosed (gluten-free since July 1) and never had major GI symptoms mostly neurological issues and other very random stuff. So no red flags to tell me, "You just glutened yourself!" Or at least I haven't identified them yet. I'm not sure if I'm feeling better or not yet. I do have more energy but lots of anxiety and random symptoms that might be celiac related... but who knows. I'm just not sure if this is what "feeling better" is yet. I can't imagine what that is like... or will be like. And I keep reading about people "getting sick" when they are glutened but that is so vague. For me, I'm not sure I'll know if I've actually been glutened or not. I feel like I'm extremely careful but I'm not sure if I'm being over the top, or if I'm doing it right, or not enough and need to do more. I'd just like to get to a nice gluten-free baseline and note what that is like so that I can compare how I used to feel and how I might feel if glutened so that I'll know! Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread and provide no answers. I can just relate, that's all.
    • Last check(last fall sometime) my b12 and folate were fine. He did check my iron and it was fine. My potassium is technically normal, but lower than my cardio wants(I'm on q med that depletes it). Last time I had a full and extensive panel run was years and years ago. I recall my copper being high(but no one ever retested it), vit d and a couple others were low. I have tested positive for labs used to evaluate malnutrition, but it's been q couple of years since they've done those. Just going to put it on the back burner for now I guess. Can't afford to lose much more weight, but they tend to get more serious the lower my BMI goes(not on purpose, I'll have periods where I can gain a bit because I'm not vomiting a lot. Past two days I've been throwing up again after I eat.) Maybe my next colonoscopy will finally show something useful.  It's just 3 years this time and I've been arguing about my gut for 18 years now so what's a little More? 
    • Re. gorilla munch - Made with corn, says gluten free on the box, I don't know why it wouldn't be. It's quite yummy. Corn pops and Post golden crisp used to be my favorites, before celiac.
    • I buy the Chex cereals( except wheat). I had recently been buying Puffins from Barbara's bakery but got a very unsatisfactory answer to my question about where they source their oats so I have decided to stop buying them. See below.... "Thank you for your recent email about the oat flour in our Puffins cereal.  We appreciate the time you took to contact our company.

      Approximately 90% of our ingredients are sourced from North America. However obviously there are some crops that do not grow here, and items that are not manufactured here. In those cases, we source from other areas, mainly UK, EU and South America. Regardless of where the supplier is located, we have a very robust Supplier Assurance Program that ensures that we purchase only from approved, high quality suppliers. 

      We thank you again for your comments and hope you continue to enjoy our products.  If, at any time, we can be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us again."
