The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Dinner tonight.. may not happen.  Because I just baked a Betty Crockers gluten-free devils food cake mix and I have a tub of icing waiting to go in when it is cool enough.  Hmmm, I guess I will whip up a little bit of real food but I am definitely leaving room for cake!  (By the way for those who wonder why I post my dinners so late- I cook for when hubby gets home from work which can be pretty late)

 

This weekend I am getting a free gluten-free meal at one of my favorite local places, they had a Facebook contest where you comment on a picture and holy guacamole I actually won this time!  So a free entree to the place we were already planning to go to on our Saturday date, can't beat that!

 

nope...can't beat that.....

 

and, um -- cake for dinner is nothing new around here.

That looks really good! Did you love it?

 

I did...I tweaked it a bit -- can't do spinach...well I'm hoping to get it back in moderation soon (actually bought some yesterday) but wasn't ready for a trial so...I subbed with Kale.

 

I think it will be even better with Spinach.

 

Cake -- I said cake -- today's model is chocolate : )

Zippity Do Da!!!

 

Ate half an Udi's Bagel early this morning and all seems ok :)

 

Until recently I couldn't tolerate any grains -- have been able to eat one slice of canyon bakehouse these past weeks, but failed with udi's last time I tried.

 

Today may be a very good day after all :)

 

edited to add:  the ingredients are the same as Udi's White so may have more bread options again!!!

Yay for being able to eat bread again! Do you buy Canyon Bakehouse locally or order online? My store just discontinued carrying it, so I might have to go the online route.

 

My kids and I are having chickpea and quinoa stew, cooked kale, and apple slices for lunch. I need to find more exciting "naturally gluten-free" recipes to try on occasion. Our diet is very healthy but sometimes I get bored.

Yay for bread and bagels! I have a really awesome bagel recipe that I need to dig out now that you mentioned them. I think they sound like a nice weekend treat.

 

This is my husband's first day off since the middle of last week so today we're having our Easter dinner. It just didn't feel right to have it at 10:30 at night when he gets home. So we'll have ham, stuffing, and whatever veggies I decide to make. I'm pretty excited, I love stuffing. :wub:

Happy Easter Addie and Hubs!!!

 

Ruth...I buy locally...we have it several places, but recently found a market that sells it for 4.59 compared to 5.99 everywhere else -- used to pay 6.89 for it when it first came out -- the men didn't get it much then.

yeah, that "stuff " is always good on the side.  :lol: I like the looks of that recipe, ski! Yaay for bagel-tolerating. whoohoo!

 

I decided against split pea soup and decided in favor of black bean soup.  

The great thing is, J does not care either way.

He's very easy to cook for--except when it comes to fish. He does not do fish. (shellfish, yes. fish, no.) I would eat fish every day if I could.

not a lamb guy either....and he chokes down spinach. (spinach salad yes, spinach cooked...er, not his thing.)

 

I , on the other hand, eat everything I can--well, everything that likes me back. lol

I am still waiting for a piece of cake please. ^_^

I am going to attempt to bake some doughuts/donuts (sp?) either tonight or tomorrow. I have to run out and buy some pans because I can't wait for the one I ordered from Amazon to get here Saturday. Does anyone have any tried and true favorite recipes?

I use abelskiever batter...tastes kinda like a buttermilk old fashioned:

I sub Pamela's Baking Mix for the All Purpose Flour called for in the recipe. 

 

Let us know how they turn out...never thought about a donut pan....sounds fun  :)

 

I know someone has a good donut recipe, but can't remember who -- Addie maybe?

check this out....Ski, you can take your bath and have your glass of Zin in there.  ^_^

Great Idea...hmmm is 6am too early to start on wine?  Perhaps I'll move the magical bath to bedtime -- some say epsom salt is better at night.

 

PS...the pork roast in the crock smells amazing -- sides turned out to be simple rice and honey carrots.

I make killer, amazing, to die for donuts. But they aren't a recipe. They're a mix. I tried them at an expo, and none of the gluten eaters there could tell they were gluten free other than knowing they were at a gluten free expo. http://www.glutenfreeheaven.com/~glutenfr/product_info.php?cPath=22&products_id=46

This is one of my favorite baked doughnut recipes. I make it gluten-free by substituting gluten-free flour mix for all the flour and I also make it dairy free. I made up several dozen of them and took them to a fall festival and people really gobbled them up! One kid commented that they tasted better than the regular fried doughnuts.

That looks like a great recipe. I'm going to give it a shot as mini muffins.

They have changed the packaging lately.  The Seven Grain no longer has the "San Juan" part of the name.  Some stores might get more once the old packaging is gone.  I get it at many different groceries in the freezer section.  Whole Foods and those kinds of places usually have it. I have even seen it at Target.  It is based in the Denver area, so it may be more available closer to Denver?

I think you might need to switch to a nice white wine to go with those donuts at 6 a.m. Or champagne and OJ?

 

M isn't a big pork fan except occasional bacon or grilled pork chops.  He might like the roast?  Hmmm....  Its cooked in my favorite kitchen appliance.   :lol:

Addy -

 

I went to a local Celiac Support group thing.  This lady had made the flat bread with that flour mix you got at Costco.  It is dense and dry - not in a bad way.  Like a pita.  Great with hummus.  Freeze well.  They make lots of things like pizza with it.  Cut them in pieces and you could serve them with hummus and other dips to GEs  (Gluten EAters),

Gracie is helping me type.  She isn't thrilled with bread recipes but did like the pork in the crockpot recipe.  She says she will try to get the cook to make her some.  Meow.

 

 

 

edit- There is a quinoa salad that those flat breads are really good with on the blog, too.

(Bella helps me type too. If I ever say anything stoopit, it's her, not me.)

 

That flatbread idea is great. I got a small bag of ADDY's flour (yes, it's called that now) so I may give it a whirl.

 

I'm going to try that pork recipe myself this weekend. It's your fault I now own two slow cookers. I actually say "Karen made me buy this bigger one " .

 

Tonight is PIzza night as you all know. Not sure what kind yet.

Now, if you will excuse me, I am going golfing. (the mini kind....I got a hole- in -one last time and have to defend my championship status) 

 

^_^  B)  Happy Friday and a shout out to Arleneeee. Are you okay, sweets??  big hugs, Drink water. Lots and lots of water. pee out the anesthesia. It always makes us wonky, so take it easy todayxx.

Roast was AWESOME and everybody loved it -- was nice new flavor -- funny it kinda smelt like I was serving good hot dogs with the works during the first hours of cooking -- J came home and started salivating around 2pm and the smell got much better/richer.  I have to print the recipe...I didn't look at it after I loaded the pot, so not sure if it suggests making gravy out of the juices -- I just added a Tbsp of Tapioca Flour right before we served -- corn starch would work too.

I've got two crocks now too -- the big one I've always used, but added the travel sized one -- I blamed K when the hubs looked cross-eyed at me filling up the appliance graveyard ;)

 

Hugs Arleneeeee---glad it went well!

    • Also I should add that in the 12 weeks, my vitamin d plummeted and now am deficient. Would you guys accept a celiac diagnosis (I am pretty confident that I have it- I was sad before the challenge that I couldn’t eat gluten anymore. Now after the challenge i am EXCITED to never eat it again as I feel like such crap now) or can a positive diamodated Gliadin  IgG indicate anything else? Or is it specific to celiac? I am happy to get a diagnosis,  but want to make sure it’s the right one. I wish I trusted my doc more (example- 3 days ago they called and said congrats, no celiac, u can eat gluten!! The doc signed off on it. But I looked at my results and pointed out that the deamidated IgG levels were not reported yet. The doc said whoops my bad. The next day they came back positive and I got another call & they said, nevermind, no gluten, you’re positive! They are idiots). 
    • Looking for advice and also to help those undergoing testing. I went to my general practitioner back in August with nausea, bloating, diarrhea, migraines, sluggishness, and a feeling of general unwellness. I was eating a gluten diet at the time. My doc ordered the dual antigen screen- it came back positive for celiac. He set up an appointment for me with a specialist. I called the specialist and they could get me in 8 weeks later. I asked the specialist if I went gluten free is this would affect any testing. They said “no” that I was in a gluten diet for so long I would be fine. However, 8 weeks later, the blood test showed no celiac- my results were normal after 8 weeks on a gluten free diet. I felt great, for me the turnaround was almost immediate- in a week or 2 I felt amazing. But that didn’t help with getting accurate results (mostly wanted to rule out another autoimmune disorder). I then went on gluten for 7 weeks (I ate a lot of gluten- like at least a bagel a day and much more on some days- I wasn’t messing around, I wanted an accurate diagnosis)and repeated the blood test at 7 weeks. It came back a very weak positive for deamidated gliadin abs iGg. I then underwent a endoscopy because the doc said that number, although positive, was not high enough to go off of. The endoscopy came back normal- however, the doc noted that higher levels of antibodies were found but not in the “abnormal range.” So, they were present, just not in crazy levels. I then kept eating gluten- I should note my doctors SUCK (could do a whole other post just on this- I have been my own doctor pretty much). I just took another blood test at 3 months eating gluten. My levels are now SUPER high for deamidated Gliadin abs IgG. The doc is confident I have celiac. Question is- my doc is so bad, I wanted to check here to make sure that it indicates celiac. I also wanted to help others as I know there’s lots of conflicting information on how long to do a gluten Challenge. For me, it took 3 months. My gut tells me I am early stage celiac- I don’t have full blown damage yet, but if I keep eating it I am sure it will do some damage. Just wanted to highlight this as if your case isn’t super bad yet, you may have to eat gluten longer- everyone is different. Any advice on my results would be awesome!
    • Hi Matt,  Thanks for taking the time to reply!  I completely agree haha.  Thanks for the links - I'll give them a read over!  I think it was a mixture of the first time travelling with being gluten-free and the added bonus of the language barrier, it made me dread meal times when usually food is the first thing I think about when travelling to new places! Again, I think the planning element was also a factor, not being able to walk past a nice bakery without walking in - why do most Berlin train stations have bakeries in everyone?!?! THE SMELL!!!  Haha, good excuse! Could have used that in the hotel restaurant (arrived late the first night) and the only avail dish was a dry chicken Caesar salad (literally 3 thin slices of chicken, 5 cherry tomatoes and a plate of lettuce).  I am I'll give the website a look over too - thank you! My app's with my consultant are every 6 months, basically was just sent away with no info/advice given and feeling the struggle now that reality has set in that this is for good!  Hope you are well! 
    • Gluten is a protein smaller then blood,bleach does not kill it as it is not a germ. I would replace scratched pans. baking dishes, tubaware, wooden utensils, colanders, etc. Throw out crumby condiment jars and any non gluten-free spices and condiments. Cast Iron can be saved and some metal utensils by putting in your oven self clean cycle, 500F will destroy the protein. I always tell people easy ways to get started on new cookware, nordicware microwave cook ware, omelette makers, steamers, rice cookers, grilling plates (do not forgot the splatter cover), This way you can have a cheap and easy meals, a new crockpot and use crockpot liners is great for soups, I suggested a combo rice cooker/crockpot/steamer as a great investment. OH if you want a nice clean safe prep area/counter/eating place mat, look up freezer paper/butcher paper. I did a post on where to get it in bulk awhile back. But laying it out is perfects, and makes clean up a breeze. Foil sheets in baking dishes works great for a extra precaution but if you have any with baked on stuff or scratched look at getting new ones. PS took me over  months to start feeling much better. Sometimes the improvement is minor and you have to think back to the worst you had. It does improve but normally big changes are after a year.

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.
