That sounds really good, Anna!

 

Last night our burgers had filled us up too much so I am making the homemade gnocchi today instead.  Going to serve it with broccoli and a simple tomato and cheese sauce.

My gnocchi turned out great.  I made a royal mess in the kitchen, though.  Had a poofy spill of xanthan gum, and like an idiot I applied water to the dust to help clean it off.  Oh boy....

Whew....kids and kidlets off.  Daughter and grands flew to their new home in Ohio yesterday.  My youngest man just headed out with his brother-in-law for a 2400 mile adventure from California to Ohio :)

 

I see I have some catching up to do:

 

Fudge freezes -- when I make -- I wrap half of the double batch in foil then put in a ziploc -- freezes great and so much easier than making it twice ;)

 

Yet another week I want to move in with Irish -- yum!

 

Arlene -- so sorry to hear this sad news -- losses of those so young is a very tough thing on any community - hugs.  But loving the fancy cucumber sauce idea...I'm all about the sauces lately.

 

I think dinner is something very similar to Anna's post -- I can eat all of that :D

 

also need to check out the gnocchi idea for the men -- once the youngest gets back -- welcome home dinner next week -- yep, missing him already!

Tonight we're having breakfast for dinner. Pancakes and bacon. I'm sulking and want comfort food. Yesterday I had what should have been my first stellate ganglion block, unfortunately it failed which means that my CRPS is too advanced for them to ever be successful so it will also be my last. So now I'm exploring other options, none of which are appealing. Of course, there isn't anything appealing about having a needle shoved in your neck past your jugular vain either. They sedated me for that crap, no way in hell I was letting someone do that to me completely aware. :ph34r:

I haven't decided yet- But I wanted to try and make some gluten free bread rolls tonight. I made some last night with no yeast and they came out a little too flat. Delicious, but flat. I forgot what fresh baked bread smelled and tasted like.

The cherry tree needed picking, I think that by the time they were ready half went to the birds. <_< We still got way more than any two, or even four people could possibly eat. My husband thought he wanted to make maraschino cherries until I told him that they take booze. :lol: I'm going to price it tomorrow, but we don't want to experiment with something we may not like by spending more than we want to. We're also going to just go for the sugary, "gross" version also. And maybe I'll even manage a pie. The birds were kind enough to leave all the pits from what they were eating, so I'm saving all the pits to try a heating pad for myself from them. I've heard that cherry pit heating pads are epic, but for the work they take it isn't something I'll likely ever do for others. :ph34r:

I love cherries!  They freeze really well, too.  They add really good sweetness to smoothies by just adding a few.

 

Today we had grilled chicken, green beans, and potatoes.  (Those bacon au gratin steakhouse potatoes from a box.... one of the few box things I can/will make, lol!)

 

I prepared a pot roast for the crock pot so all I have to do is turn it on tomorrow when I go to IVIG, and then well eat off that the next few days.  I also made banana nut muffins today that turned out pretty good.  No better way to use up brown bananas.

Hubs birthday ... Unfortunately he is one sick pup for the past five days...doc sent him to ER yesterday to rule out meningitis ... They ruled out bacterial, but think viral is likely....thankfully viral is the type you want IF you ever have to get either.

Birthday dinner and cake will be postponed...hopefully he'll be able to enjoy by Father's Day.

I've been eating simply chicken and veggies for past several days to make sure I avoid as many reactions as possible to take care of my sweetie.

Off for a short walk....have a great day folks!

Laura, I noticed you mentioned IVIG. I am new to this Celiac forum so there is much I do not know about this disease. I hope I am not being too personal but is the IVIG ever used for Celiac or is this another disorder. I also have ITP and my hematologist has suggested that IVIG may be in my future. Would love to hear your experience with it.

Thanks Patti J

Happy 90th Birthday Irish's Pop!

 

I made a wish along with a small toast last night for a birthday angel to make my sick pup better today....hubs is up and eating...asked and answered.

 

Guess I have the first toast ready for this evening.  "Thanks Coach"  :wub:

 

Zoodles with Cilantro Garlic Sauce sound like an excellent idea to go with the wine ;)

No real recipe....just throw big bunch of cilantro OR basil in the blender with a couple cloves of garlic or some scallions with some salt and sugar (sometimes I use sugar, sometimes agave) to taste....makes all those same foods taste different ;)

Used to use olive oil in it....sometimes still do, sometimes I just thin with a little water or cream.

Clear as chocolate mousse???

I have put a beef chuck roast in the crockpot with onions and a bit of BBQ sauce.  It sat all night with a "rub" on it.  Hoping to shred it and add more BBQ sauce for sandwiches.  Making a non-mayo coleslaw, too.

The rub was just salt, pepper, smoked paprika & garlic powder.  Haven't eaten it yet, so we will see.    For pork, we like to marinate in Worcestershire sauce, garlic and black pepper.

When I do my own rub for a pork loin or tenderloin I usually do rosemary, fresh chopped garlic, salt (a lot) and fresh ground pepper. It gets a beautiful crispy crust in the rotisserie but I'm sure would also be delicious just roasted or in a crockpot.

Hi Patti!  IVIG is not used for Celiac.  I have common variable immunodeficiency with low IgG and IgA and reduced vaccine response.  So I get a 40 gram IVIG infusion every 4 weeks.  I also have lupus.  

IVIG can be utilized in a lot of different conditions other than hypogammaglobulinemia (low immunoglobulins) and usually those uses are rare, but there is a lot of new research.  Cost is a big hurdle, as one infusion usually is around 15 thousand dollars (us).  Other than that you just sit there and get an infusion, most people get moderate headache afterwards but that can be reduced with benadryl, tylenol, and drinking as much water as you can.  Hopefully if you need IVIG infusions for your ITP it will be a temporary thing.

 

If they decide to start you on IVIG send me a private message if you'd like, I wouldn't mind a good chat :)

Tonight we're having steak fajitas and homemade horchata. One of my very favorite things.

 

A neighbor had some herbs taking over her garden so wanted some friendly souls to come take away some of them. As soon as I have a little shade I'll be out transplanting some chives, cilantro and parsley. I just keep adding to my garden completely by accident. B) For now I'm getting a break from those damned cherries. I don't think I ever realized what a pain in the butt they are to get cleaned and pitted so I can get on with actually DOING something with them. <_<

Thank you both for your rub/marinade ideas! I tried a rub that was a little too peppery (as in chili peppery) last time. It was good but it struck me as imbalanced.

I use a number of different rubs, bastes and marinades, but if you have not checked out Leite's Culinaria, yet...please do.

 

There are a lot of rubs and spice blends on there and our very own Love2Travel likes that site.

 

She recently sent me an email, BTW everyone and she and her hubs are in their home in Croatia and acclimating to life. She is doing great--so very happy! ( out of that damn cold weather in Alberta, for starters. ) She sends xx and oo

 

And I love this site too and I have his Portuguese cook book...good stuff :)

    • You're welcome ritamichelle. Yes, if you are biopsy confirmed then it will be much easier to get your daughter tested. 
    • I agree that In people that have celiac there usually is a trigger. It can be physical or emotional stress as the article states. I wonder though if the people they say 'don't have the genes' are folks that simply have rarer ones. There is research on more genes. I discovered it when I was writing a paper for a class. It was a very long time ago in 'computer age' and my bookmarks died along with the computer I was useing. But it is out there on peer reviewed sites like Lancet, NIH etc. Since celiac was rarely tested for even a couple decades ago there are many folks that may have celiac in their family but it was never known. That was the case in my family. I am confident about that.  I always wondered why my Mom seldom left the house, spent a lot of time in the bathroom, was tired all the time and was always holding her hands the way she did.  Then I became her.  We have so much to learn about celiac. Personally I dislike the term 'NCGS' because it makes folks think at times they don't need to be as strict and it isn't as serious. Too many are told that their biopsies are negative and they then get the NCGS label if they had positive bloods.  I consider celiac to be a spectrum disorder. Not all celiacs have gut impact or at least haven't developed it yet. I had the neuro impact and DH from shortly after I was impaled as a young child. It was many years before any severe GI issues arose.  
    •     http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/08/11/coffee-adulterated https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/how-was-your-morning-coffee-did-it-taste-like-mud-v6rfdmrrr92 http://grist.org/food/coffee-taste-like-dirt-thats-because-it-might-be/ " Using liquid chromatography, which identifies the individual chemical components of a mixture, the Brazilian scientists found wheat, soy bean, brown sugar, barley, corn, and rice commonly interspersed with the grounded coffee they tested. Large amounts of wood and dirt were also prevalent, an issue not only for purists who prefer to drink their coffee black, but for those with potential allergies to the unknown additives. As TIME reports, the scientists are identifying the rogue coffee with increasing accuracy:" http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/health/health-news/is-there-wheat-hidden-in-your-coffee/news-story/a3d53a7c36b76156f08d89eab6a396b3   -----   I have also read other references to coffee upsetting those with celiac.   Personally I have a family history of officially diagnosed celiac even though I have never been diagnosed myself..then again Ive never been properly tested. My drs just keep saying the following symptoms are anxiety and wont refer me to a gastroenterologist for:   Loss of bowel control, pale coloured stools, severe bloating, passing undigested food, ataxia, vertigo, migraine headaches, feeling feverish, repeated ulcers on my tongue and in my mouth, feeling generally ill and sleep issues (mostly falling asleep when I dont want to but rarely insomnia).   Because they insist its anxiety as routine blood tests are normal they wont refer me to a gut dr. They did do a blood test for celiac once on my request but it came back negative. This does not phase me when it comes to my suspicians that gluten is an issue for me because:   1 I was on a gluten free diet at the time, hence why i was well enough to crawl to the gps office. 2 I have a family history of celiac 3 MY symptoms are alleviated by a gluten free, dairy free, oat free, corn free diet..and lately, coffee free it seems. Coffee has indeed become a problem for me recently. 4 I could not tolerate gluten based baby foods as an infant. I was admitted to hospital as a baby for being underweight because I was vomitting all my food up. They put me on gluten free formula and i was fine, stopped being sick and gained weight. I could have grown out of it but considering the symtpoms i get on a gluten based diet, i really doubt it.   -----   When it comes to the coffee, food manufacturers will do most anything to make profits if they think they can get away with it. We live in a world where money is most important and if they do get caught...they can always claim they have no idea how the barley got in there!    
    • If you have had a sleep study and been diagnosed, you have sleep apnea. It's definitely different than waking up to go to the bathroom. Are you using your cpap every night for The entire night. Naps too? SA can actually cause death so it's very Important for you to use it every time you sleep. Do you follow up with your doctor yearly? Sorry to sound like the SA police, but I know someone who died from it. He wasn't using his cpap anymore, thought it was uncomfortable.     What Is Sleep Apnea?   Sleep apnea (AP-ne-ah) is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.
