We had Experimental Dinner. Rules of Exp. Dinner:

I make some recipes I have been wanting to try. They may have nothing to do with each other and make a strange meal. If you don't like it you don't have to eat it but you have to try everything. Constructive comments are encouraged.

Tonight's was a success! Everyone liked everything just the way it was. The ony suggestion was to use the chicken marinade on a pork chop.

We had:

Baked cheese & broccoli patties

Tasty Trashy Taters ( tater tot, cheddar, hot sauce, rolled in a piece of bacon, coated in brown sugar & baked)

Clinton Kelly's supreme pizza dippers using the new Pillsbury pizza dough

Daphne Oz's sweet and spicy wings

Michael Simons chocolate Carmel peanut bars

Ski Lisa recipe for Lemonies ( made extra glaze, poked holes in the " cake" and then poured it on. We LOVE lemon))

4 of these recipes came from the TV show The Chew! I have had great luck with them.

 

This sounds like a blast...how fun would it be to potluck with this thread!!!

 

We had Lemonies tonight with vanilla ice cream...anyway you slice them...lemonies are firmly planted in the rotation :)

 

Hey....just notice my response of gratitude to L2T isn't there....freaking kindle is all i have next to the pool and sadly...between this sad little machine and me being drippy...things run a muck!

Last night we had the steak....and saved the beautiful huge shrimp I purchased for tonight....someone posted a really easy way to do shrimp which involves a stick of butter -- sounds great -- that is what is for dinner with pasta of some sort and brussel sprouts -- kinda similar to Addie's -- except with BACON :)

I scrapped the corn idea when I got to the kitchen. I remembered I have brussel sprouts in the fridge. Fresh and beautiful and just dying to be eaten. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with them so I started poking around in there and remembered I have an eensy bit of loose sausage from the other day. I fried about a tablespoon of that, threw in some olive oil and put in my sprouts, cut in half. And just left them. When they were all golden I tossed some diced onion on them and enough salt to choke a camel, threw a lid on and turned them off but left them on the burner til dinner was ready.

 

I swear... omg... they are the best thing I ever cooked in my life. I almost died of happiness eating them. And they took like seriously 20 minutes to make if I count the time I was deciding what to do with them!

i make them with prosciutto, shallots and a little bit of balsamic vinegar - sometimes we go *crazy* and add a little dijon - depends on what else we're making - mmmmm!  mmmmmmmm!  loves me some sprouts :)  i used to just cook them whole (boil the crap out of them lolz) because my mother didn't like them so she never made them.  my ex-m.i.l. served them to me once and i was like WHAT are THESE ??  

 

i have ever sliced them and quick-fried them in butter s&p and they are yummz that way too.  i have seen them in salads, shredded, as well.  i bet a good dijon vinegarette and bacon bits, viola, side salad.  now i need brussel sprouts........   <_<

I'm not allowed to have bacon in the house. Because I apparently have about as much self control as a toddler would if a cookie jar tipped over in front of them. I wanted to make them with bacon but figured that sausage would have to be a suitable substitute and just cooked it until it was itsy bitsy crispy crumbles. HAH! I showed it!

I made the candy bar part of these last night!  They are soooo good! And easy to make.

 

Not sure about popcorn gelato tho.  :wacko: 

 

I would totally make popcorn gelato. It sounds interesting and I'm up for just about anything once. I had other people doing too much in the kitchen yesterday to have enough space or feel comfortable, I have it all to myself today though so I'm getting to my chocolate chip mint today. :D

Little tiny chunks of cheese.  I put my comments on the bacon thread with the "recipe"

 

the Pillsbury dough was just in the regular grocery with all the other refrigerated Pillsbury doughs.  I would have missed it but I was thinking about getting the boys a can of rolls.  The pizza dough is mainly tapioca so its chewy.  Worked well for the little balls.  All the additives make it easy to roll out and not sticky.  My older son suggested that they might make a nice donut type thing. Maybe apple pie filling cut small and cinnamon sugar on the outside.  Or cook the little balls with sugar on the outside and then "inject" jam or icing.

 

It has a very short expiration date. So use it quickly.

the tapioca-y-ness of the chebe pizza crust is why i didn't like it so i hope the pillsbury is not so much.  (filled with jam - yum - i love it that y'all play with your food, too :D  )

 

i was trying to stay off the bacon thread......  because i didn't want to o.d. - oh, well, at least i'll die with a big greasy smile on my face!!  ;)

The pie crust doesn't have tapioca. I am going to try it for something, probably not pie.

Apparently I have given myself a very serious problem. I am now addicted to brussel sprouts, they're for dinner again. I threw together some scalloped taters. My husband wants his bratz which I can't possibly eat so I'll just have a burger.

As time gluten-free increases...this can happen - sucks but does reinforce the need to become a really good label reader.

Needed to go to Home Depot to pick up some things. Got up super early to avoid the heat. Got home at 9:30 and it is already 80. There isn't really anything the low humidity can do for us with these temps, it is just too damn hot! Since this is an outdoor project that involves painting something, I suppose it'll have to wait until about sunset so I can go out and not melt.

 

I think we may have chicken for supper. Maybe... idk, its too hot to think. Maybe we'll just eat my ice cream we're freezing today. :D

In my experience most spaghetti sauces are gluten free. I always bought Classico because it doesn't taste like chemical crap. If you want to try something "exotic" Dave's has a nice butternut sauce, but it is rather expensive.

    • I will say what everyone else says and get tested again with the endoscope and biopsy to confirm, you will need to be on gluten for 12 weeks for blood test 2 weeks for endoscope at least a slice of bead a day.  The thing about celiac is many symptoms can be quite minor, hell even before I had my MAJOR symptoms show I had some of the other issues show up in my every day life and I just thought it was normal.  Regardless if you keep eating gluten with celiac disease it will slowly eat away at your body internally til it does become a problem. Celiac is a autoimmune disease that reacts to the gluten proteins, and has misdirected attacks on your own body internally by mistake trying to kill the gluten. Now the damage can lead to all kinds of other auto immune diseases, random allergies, food intolerance, and even cancer.   I suggest if you do have it, stay on the gluten-free diet, your just basically changing brands there are many gluten-free food versions of everything now days. Be thankful you got this early, I developed issues with dairy, corn, peanuts, and a whole list of others along with another autoimmune disease Ulcerative Colitis that makes it so I can not eat sugars or carbs or my intestines swell.  Getting on a gluten-free diet before your damage progresses will not only keep you healthier for longer, and let you live a pretty normal life but also save you from this pain and very limited diet if the damage progresses too much. As to your fatigue, you changed over to gluten-free diet, you stopped eating a bunch of the Fortified foods, and depending on the route you took of either whole foods ore more processed foods. You could be eating to many empty carbs, starches, and not enough nutrients. OR if you took the whole foods approach you be lacking in your daily calorie intake or not the right ratio of nutrients. You might have to supplement a few of them.
    • REALLY odd call out here, I am attending a anime convention called A-Fest in Dallas come August, I need someone to split the room with it who is gluten-free. I take extra precautions, I COOK all the food, bring only CERTIFIED foods into the room, The room will be Gluten Free, Corn Free, Dairy Free, Peanut Free. I am trying to find someone to split the room cost with, that would be safe to be around I CAN NOT AFFORD to get sick at one of these things, it is one of my few joys left in life and get very paranoid around them. So I need someone who is also gluten-free to make sure the room stays safe (YES I have done with with a non celiac with the rules down and well stuff happens so not chancing it). Room split is food coverage comes to $400 if it is just two people.  4 day convention, I will arrange a meal plan around your diet as long as it is free of my allergens. I will also provide various snacks, baked goods, and even stuff to take home with you.   https://animefest.org/ ^Convention info.
    • Hi Jennifer, This thread might have some information that would help you.   Your doctors are pretty lame IMHO.  Perhaps you can find a celiac group in your area that has local meetings for support.  They might also suggest a different doctor who knows how to treat celiac patients.  
    • All the above posts are full of good advice. What I'd like to add is, if you have coeliac disease and continue to eat gluten, you run the risk of other autoimmune diseases in the future as well as osteoporosis, malnutrition and even cancer, so even if you had no symptoms at the beginning, and may also not have any symptoms if you eat gluten (not all coeliacs do), the damage is still being done to your gut and the rest of your body, so please be aware of this.
    • You could possibly try calling the places in Texas and Chicago to see if they can refer you somewhere that does accept your insurance. Oh good luck to you!
