:ph34r: I have no issues with the pizza crust thus far! I shall know more when i eat some of the leftovers.

 

This success is kind of making me want to go try out the soy sauce that i bought a few months back (and never opened or used).

 

In all seriousness though, i think i got a little acid reflux from the cheese, but outside of that it was fine.

Yeah!  That crust does have  a lot of ingredients so there is a lot of stuff to react to.

true enough, but with previous experience with cheese, that is usually the culprit.

Spaghetti with meatballs tonight. It's something I used to enjoy a lot more often when I could just buy meatballs, but the only ones available all have soy in them. So, due to laziness I don't get my meatballs very often.

 

My husband is playing a video game and was killing a mammoth. I told him we could have fusilli instead of the usual pasta if he wanted and apparently he was totally not paying attention to me at all because he immediately said something along the lines of "just die already!" I was like omg fine... see if I ever suggest differently shaped pasta again. :lol: Dangerous thing in this house, changing routines. :ph34r:

hahaha! thanks for that giggle, Addy! :lol:

 

I made quinoa and black bean stuffed peppers and I have to say, they were awesome.

 

I made a triple batch. My very sweet neighbors (and temporary landlords) have gone G F and my physical therapist and her hubs are also G F

so I figured they all work hard and maybe I could share.

uh.... yes. But I'm surprised that based on the fact that he was yelling at a mammoth you knew what he was playing. He's all "the mammoths are tough" as if this is a fact that everyone knows. Except me of course since I never played Skyrim.

 

And gratz on the pizza. Always good news when things go smoothly. :)

tonight's dinner is:  i don't care :lol: i am dressing up in a victorian costume and being a tour guide on the haunted halloween walking tour.  of COURSE it's the coldest it's been yet and going to be in the 30-40's (and of course, the weather is going to warm up after the weekend....)  good thing i'm wearing a dress that i can probably fit snowpants underneath without anything showing.  when i signed up for this, it was 80 degrees lolz - oh, well, ima teach some old ladies to *run* :P

 

wednesday - made the garlic balsamic chicken (o my gosh, thanky for that!  so awesome) over noodles and with sliced fresh tomatoes (from my garden that doesn't have the good sense and decency to die already - sheesh)  that chicken is so good it impressed my mil and i had to give her the recipe <_<

 

last night was italian sausage with marinara over raviolis and salad. 

 

i made killer meatloaf (like inside out bacon/mushroom/swiss burgers) with mashed potatoes, carrots one night.  my appetite just came back a little and today i am trying all the dinners i missed lolz

 

i will eat *something* when i get done with photos and the tour tonight - but keeping the intake to a minimum.  my house is slap in the middle of the tour route, i suppose i could make them all wait on the porch while i stop to use the rest room LOLOLZ (* NOT!!!*)

I am so glad you are feeling better and this sounds like a BLAST! I wish I could go out and play with you tonight. :)

 

I am excited because we found a Whole Paycheck right near a new place for lunch

This guy does a great job and makes the most ridiculously yummy salads, lettuce cups.wraps, handmade chocolates and ice cream (yes, that vegan/non dairy/gluten free/organic kind of place where you wonder, but will it taste good? ...the answer is a resounding YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!) 

 

And we snagged the last Against the Grain pizza in WF...must be pizza night in everyone's gluten free household.

Found a few new pastas to try and some cookies I do not need, but mostly, I was thrilled there was a Sur La Table next door.

This girl is missing her kitchen stuff (buried in that PODS container) and I felt I really needed a crepe pan to make tortillas and

quesadillas properly. I would rather spend my time browsing in there than any shoe or clothing store in the world.

I know LOVE2TRAVEL would agree with me.  ^_^ 

 

ADDY

they had giraffe cookie cutters...do you want one?

 

We had a fun afternoon. oh, and it dipped down to 69 last night..! .brrr.  :lol:

I... see I have an admission to make. And I know this makes me a horrible person. It is entirely possible that in nearly two years I sort of, maybe, kind of haven't bought a new rolling pin. :ph34r: Other methods of rolling things out make me crazy and so I know I need one, but I keep needing other stuff more than pie or cookies I can cut out. I'm so embarrassed, I'm going to go hide in a corner now. And I'm going to make sure that it's on my list of things I get for Christmas.

That's nothing to be ashamed of. How often does anyone use a rolling pin? the holidays....so, you're just in time.

 

So, do you want a giraffe cookie cutter? huh huh, do ya??

Who doesn't want a giraffe cookie cutter!?! Also, I probably used my old rolling pin at least 2-3 times a month and that's being pretty conservative. When I said I was a pretty serious baker, I wasn't kidding. And pies and cookies were at the top of my list. I wonder sometimes how it is I married someone who doesn't really care for pie. Maybe he's just not right in the head. :lol:

I was a serious baker and I did not use my rolling pin 2-3 times a month.  I used it 2-3 times a year. TOPS.

So, maybe our definitions of "serious baker" do not mesh.

:D

 

 

and I think your sweetie is very right in the head, IMHO. He'll be thrilled to know I said this, I am sure.

There's more to enjoy in the dessert world than pie.

in fact, pie....ranks lowest on my dessert appreciation list.

waa???GASP!!!!

 

I was made an apple pie for my "birthday cake "since I was 1. Why? well., I was born on Thanksgiving and yes, I  like it..

My sister's Bday is 3 days before, so she got the freakin cake.

But if you make apple pies for Thanksgiving and combine it with my Bday, well....see my point?

 

If I had been more assertive as a child, I would have said..."HEY! hello?? I want chocolate cake with butter cream frosting!!"  

 

now, you know the truth about IH's horrid childhood.  :lol:

I may have ended up resenting pie a little if that happened to me. As it is, my daughter and I both sort of resent Christmas wrapping paper. Having a birthday in December (her) or right after Christmas (me) is not an excuse not to have a dollar to spend on cheap wrapping paper at the dollar store. Snowman wrapping paper doesn't double as winter birthday paper. <_<

 

The horrors of childhood right? Scarred for life, no getting out of it. I think if that's the worst that happened to us we'll be okay. :lol:

 

If I want those cookies I'll have to order them online. Or drive either to Reno or Wichita. Not exactly a Sunday afternoon drive for cookies. I feel like those packages look familiar but I have no idea where I would have seen them before. I love things with ingredients lists like those. when it reads like something I may make myself only without all the effort I get interested.

Plus, her name is Ginny. Ginny Bakes. I mean, c'mon! ;)

Hubs' Bday is Dec. 13. His day was kept separate, he recalls and not combined with Christmas.

His parents made sure of that. He was an only child, so that could be part of it.  

My cousin's Bday was Dec. 25. She said she did not mind it as she thought all the fuss was about her.lol

I think the only thing cooler would be a July 4th bday. Fireworks for your birthday? yeah baby!

 

Anyway, tonight's looking like:

 

Something made with that new crepe pan........ :D

Was it the crockpot balsamic chicken?

My mostly " adult" sons love that store! They have coffee and cookie samples. They love all odd little gadgets, especially any that aid in the opening or ingesting of carbonated, hop based beverages. It's also an easy place to get mom Xmas gifts as they have lots of red, the official color of gluten free cooking.

Last night we all went to Outback. We are visiting Kid 1 at college. He gobbled his steak, salad and fries ( he doesn't like salad) and most of my gluten-free brownie and ice cream dessert. I think he doesn't eat enough even though they have a good chef who feeds him bacon everyday.

Any chef who provides daily bacon is a good chef.

Maybe his appetite was up because he was happy to see his Mom?. :wub:

 

Oh yes, there are lots of RED things at Sur La Table. I got some big ole red silicone oven mitts yesterday.

(picture things that may be used to handle industrial waste lol)

 

I have a problem with burning myself while taking things out of the oven....and these should stop that. (scorched fingers crossed)

Have fun with your boy-o.

    • Did you take any vitamin D supplements when that tested low? Was anything done to correct the other deficiencies you had?  Do you take a multivitamin now?  I think correcting any vitamin and mineral deficiencies should be the first line of defense.   It's the simplest way of ruling out more sinister conditions.  Vitamin deficiency diseases can be mistaken for other diseases.  For example,  a deficiency in niacin (pellagra) can be mistaken for Celiac Disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Cycling Lady broke vertebra in her neck throwing up.  She had anemia, a result of iron and B12 deficiencies.   I understand how you can just blow off the importance having adequate vitamin and mineral levels.  I did.  My doctor did, too. But when a friend suggested vitamin D deficiency might be causing my severe depression,  I begged my doctor to check my vitamin D level.  He ranted he couldn't make any money prescribing vitamins.  He finally agreed, but only because my insurance would pay for it and he could prescribe synthetic D2.  My level was six.  That's severely deficient.  He didn't bother with checking for other deficiencies.  I broke a leg, osteoporosis due to calcium deficiency.  That's lame.  I developed pellagra.  That's "slightly dead."  Then there was the BeriBeri episode with bouts of tachycardia. That's "almost dead." And from complications of vitamin A deficiency, I'm legally blind.  All within three years.  Yeah, sure, vitamins aren't so important.  Just ignore them, they'll go away.  Please rethink putting nutritional deficiencies on the back burner. Hope this helps. 😸
    • Former lifeguard and competitive swimmer here. There could be some potential issues, but I think it's pretty unlikely. Here's why I think that: 1. The water volume in a standard 25m pool is enormous (hundreds of thousands of liters). Assuming there are people swimming in the pool, any hot spots are likely to get dissipated pretty fast, so you'd have to swallow a lot of water to get a serious gluten hit. 2. By law (at least in Canada), the water inflow and outflow rates must be such that the volume of water that makes up the pool must be replaced every 24 hours in public pools. There are always some dust bunnies, bandaids and whatnot trapped in the corners at the bottom of the pool, but the main volume you're interacting with gets replaced regularly, so no build-up. Public pools are also vacuumed on a regular basis. For cleaning agents, typically on bleach and baking soda are used in my experience. Private pools are another story and there no guarantees. 3. Most public pools prohibit food on deck due to public health regulations and/or wanting to avoid cleaning up messes. This limits potential sources of gluten to personal care products on other people's skin. Considering the volume of a pool, I'm having trouble imagining this resulting in a significant exposure, but I have also swam in packed outdoor pools that taste like sunblock, so who knows. I would definitely worry if people were eating hot dogs or shotgunning beers in the pool though (definitely a thing at backyard pool parties). 4. Pool chlorine can be either tablet based, liquid based or gas based depending on the pool. Either way, it is bleach-based (sometimes literal bleach gets dumped in smaller volume bodies like hot tubs when the chlorine is off). The pool I worked at, which was newer used liquid injection, and I would imagine this is true of most newer facilities (gas is undesirable as it can leak and kill people because it is odourless - some older pools still have this set-up though). Tablets are more common in backyard pools, and it's possible that these might contain gluten in some form (I have no idea and have never checked).  For reference, the concentration of chlorine in a swimming pool should be between 0.5-5 ppm, depending on the pool temperature and your region (lower for colder pools, higher for hot tubs).  So, I guess my opinion would be that a public pool is most likely pretty safe from a gluten perspective. Chlorine (or rather, the volatile gases resulting from the reaction of chlorine with biological waste in the pool) is an irritant though - occupational asthma rates in lifeguards and swimmers is quite high. Some people are more sensitive to this than others. My dad cannot swim anymore because he becomes ill for a week with severe upper respiratory symptoms (open water swimming is ok). I get similar, but less severe symptoms (part of the reason I don't swim anymore, sadly). Not sure what symptoms you experienced, but something to consider. http://www.ncceh.ca/documents/practice-scenario/pool-chlorination-and-closure-guidelines
    • I look back at photos from a few years ago now and can see the inflammation in my face. I spent decades with my body fighting constantly without my really being aware. Freaked me out when I realised! Few things to think about: If up to 1% of pop are celiac, at much as 6% could be NCGS - further reading here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117969-non-celiac-gluten-sensitivity-a-resource/ NCGS can present in the same varied ways as celiac - Not just or even primarily gastro related. I get back pain, chest pain, skin problems, eyesight problems, anxiety, depression, balance issues, nerve tremors and twitches etc. etc Try to treat these next months as a special case. Dial your diet back and eat really basic and simple. I lived on omelettes filled with veggies, huge green salads with olive oil and cider vinegar as dressing and a very simple evening meal with maybe some meat and rice. I ate as little processed foods as I possibly could. So try and avoid sauces, anything in a box really.  Your aiming to help your body heal and to reduce the amount of ingredients going in to the basic safest foods. Eat clean and healthy and avoid any possible gluten source. Spend a bit of time learning about hidden sources of gluten too. This thread will help:  https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/   Final point. You may like me eventually have to live life without gluten and without the comfort of a diagnosis that says precisely why. This is not always easy, but what you learn about your body in the next 3 months of this trial could help you to do this. Keep the diary, note your reactions and hopefully when you see the Rheum in 3 months you'll have conducted your own science experiment and have the data you need to make a good decision. Best of luck Matt  
    • 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)      
    • Hey, I am learning also...make sure you are taking a good multi-vitamin...gluten-free of course.  I have had a few "charlie horse" pains in my thighs and am taking an extra B12 tablet...If you have an ALDI grocery store nearby they have lots of gluten-free items snacks and frozen.  Vitamins will help...you are not getting enough nutrients with what you are eating.
