Walk in, ask if anyone needs gluten-free menu before they ask how many are in our party.  They have 2 kitchens, one for gluten-free.  The waitress brought out my daughter's food first, the gluten stuff, said she would be right back with mine after she WASHED HER HANDS, brought mine out, different colored plate with a toothpick thing in that said Gluten Free on it.  They had a Parmesan bread, gluten-free, that was really good too!!  She said if her boss saw her bringing out regular food and gluten-free food together they are fired on the spot--same if she didn't wash her hands between serving.  The food was fantastic too!!  The sister of the owner is Celiac and she added the second kitchen when her sister was diagnosed.  I asked if there were plans to franchise in the future :D

This sounds awesome. We have a small pizza chain in northern Utah that has double kitchens. And their pizza is freakin awesome! B) I gotta get there soon, they have a summer specialty pizza called a bacon-berry pie that I've got to try. Strawberry-balsamic sauce, chicken, bacon, mozz, red onions and feta then topped with fresh strawberries and cilantro after they bake it. I think I need to keep napkins at my desk, I almost drooled on myself thinking about it. ^_^

 

Our weather this week is awesome. In the 70s yesterday and today and rain all week. :D I'm skipping any real cooking tonight and making one of those cook it in the bag you buy it in pork tenderloins. I super love the easy clean up. I think I have enough purple beans ready to pick them and have those with it. Maybe a salad or something if I go to the store, I do need to return a book to the library today which is right across the street.

2nd recipe.  I think the right amount of fresh spinach is 2 layers- just enough to overlap but not more than 2 leaves thick.  the top layer no spinach.

Probably the same.  Anything with lasagna noodles only needs about 4 hours.  Maybe mine says 7 - not sure. I have  a good lasagna one, too.  I use half burger and half Ital turkey sausage.  My food always cooks faster than the 365 Cookbook says.

 

This is the one I use, except cook for 4 hours:

 

http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2008/10/crockpot-buffalo-chicken-lasagna-recipe.html

 

This is the lasagna I used with Tinyada noodles.  I cooked the Ital sausage in a pan and added the marinara.  Cooked the hamburger in the microwave and drained.  Then added it to the sausage & marinar.   Didn't worry about 20 minutes simmering.  Used 3 layers of noodles.  Left-overs are fab!

The lasagna is very pizza like. No crispy crust, but the same flavors - cheese, marinara, sausage, etc.

Yesterday I found the How Can It Be Gluten Free cookbook on the porch. I'm SO excited! I can't wait to try making bread. But I have that chicken in the freezer for fried chicken too. I'm thinking I need to try that recipe really soon. And cookies and cakes and pie. I feel like I gained 10 pounds browsing the book.

I recommend the carrot cake recipe in that book.

Ps...forgot to add a step.

I always sear meat before throwing in the crock...really high temp in fry pan for just a few seconds on both sides for chops, all sides for roasts.

Crock 'lasagna' up mañana ... Have you used reg noodles in the crock...was thinking of using Sam mills mini lasagna noodles layered instead of lasagna noodle...they should get done in three hours too I'd guess.

I have only used lasagna noodles this way. Haven't seen mini lasagna noodles. I have made minestrone in the crockpot. Then I add the noodles the last half hour.

lolz - in my mind, you are hopping on a scooter and shimmying-shaking to the store :D

 

the other night i made:

 

parmesan cheese sauce with shredded carrot, zucchini & garlic and i put it over ravioli <if there was ever celiac jail, they would be traded like cigarettes)  no meat, therefore unacceptable to the hubs so i made it when he wasn't home.  it turned out really good.  grating parmesan from a wedge vs pre-grated - i'm becoming a fan of grating it  :)  i like the flavor better.  i can still freeze it, too.

 

last night we made:

 

nonni's shrimp with french bread & spinach salad <lolz *now* i find out it's actual recipe name is 'cajun shrimp' haha - nonni is italian.  i mean she is a jersey guido, through & through.  just cracks me up :D

They are more like wide egg noodles with a curly edge...we use them in everything that we used to use wide noodles for....going to give it a try.

Thanks :)

My husband is bringing home steak for dinner. I do have plans for "soon" though. One of the local stores just started carrying a frozen gluten free orange chicken without any super weird ingredients. I'm pretty excited. I think tomorrow or Saturday I'm going to stop in and pick it up instead of daydreaming about it. It'll probably turn into one of those things we don't buy much because I make really awesome orange chicken already. I just want to try it because it exists.

 

I'm also super excited because my tomato plants finally started having tomatoes on them. Yay! Soon I'll be able to have my purple tomato, purple basil caprese salad. ^_^

I can't remember the last time we had nachos for supper. It's a brilliant idea that will get me in front of the TV and my beloved Doctor sooner. I should try it Saturday night when I know I won't feel up to cooking.

    • Yes the first has wheat gluten in the ingredients, the second via the wheat flour. Here in the UK manufacturers HAVE to highlight gluten sources. Check the ingredients and if WHEAT, BARLEY, or RYE are mentioned *usually highlighted, italicised or underlined, then you will know there's gluten. Most of iceland's processed foods will probably be gluten filled to be honest. Any breadcrumbed or battered foods for instance.  Ps, you and me both have another disease, the british one of apologising  You don't need to, you're very welcome here and all of your questions are valid and understandable. It's going to get better  
    • Hi, I am deeply sorry for posting on here again. As I am scheduled for an Endoscopy on the 9th May, I wanted to make sure that my gluten intake is being kept the same. I was wondering if the ingredients to these products contain gluten even though dextrose is in one of them? http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-32-breaded-chicken-nuggets-448g/p/52275   Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage. http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-10-breaded-chicken-burgers-550g/p/52276 Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage. Thank you for all your help so far,
    • JMG got it down pretty much, the painful and gluten effects from eating it should clear up in a month, damage symptoms you might notice some differences as early as 2-4months but most do not noticed major improvements til about 6 months to a year. I have been gluten-free for over 3 years all my villi have healed according to the doctor on my last scope. It is very important to not cheat and avoid any kind of CC as it can set you back weeks or months. I would suggest a whole foods only diet for the first month or two, no dairy, simple stews, soups, etc. make for easy to digest and simple meals. Check out the 101 thread for some good information. PS a new combo crockpot, steamer, rice cooker combo and liners for a crock pot will be a life saver for making simple meals and easy clean ups. Quick cook microwave ware will also be handy making sure you have gluten-free cooked meals if you can not get new cookware immediately. I normally suggest cleaning out the entire house, scrubbing down knobs, handles, on the drawers, sink, fridge, cubbards etc.  throw out condiment jars, checking ingredients on everything in the house including your hygiene and makeup. Putting in drawer organizers for new utensils, throwing out scratched glass, teflon, plastic, and steel cookware. Throwing out any Tupperware, and cutting boards, some utensils that can not be cleaned well. Some times you can save cast iron and stainless steel cook ware if you can run it in your ovens cleaning cycle over 600F. Gluten is a protein like blood if you can not clean a item where a CSI team will not find it give it up, it is not a germ that can be killed with disinfectant.  I use freezer paper for clean prep surfaces, also makes clean up a breeze, I tend to use gloves alot also when fixing foods,
    • Hi Allie and welcome First off, I know 3 years was a long wait, but at 17 you've figured out celiac way before many people do. That should make a big impact on minimising its effects and helping you with the diet, so, bizarrely enough, congratulations!   A lot of good advice has been brought together in this thread:  Don't worry that your symptoms are bad now. As you follow the diet your body will begin healing itself and you're still very young so hopefully this will go really smoothly. Think in terms of the next 6 months rather than weeks however, recovery will likely take a little time. Eat as healthily as you can, lots of whole foods and try to avoid the gluten free processed substitutes as your digestive system needs all the help it can get at this moment.  You may want to avoid dairy as well for now and think about reintroducing it later. This site has been really helpful to me and others. I hope you find it just as useful. Best of luck!   ps, your increased reaction to gluten during the challenge phase was perfectly normal. Many find that reintroducing it much worse than the initial affects and take some time to get over the challenge. That's why you'll see lots of posts here urging folks to 'stay on gluten' till their testing is complete!   PPS( )  Inasmuch as your post can convey emotion, your's seemed positive  Stay that way! At times the diet can be a bit isolating and some friends and family may struggle to understand. I'm sure it will be difficult at times making good choices and staying vigilant when everyone around you doesn't have to think twice. Stick with it, your health is paramount and it will be worthwhile. In time your good friends will get it and those that don't aren't worth worrying about. There are great foods you can eat and if not, learn to cook them yourself  
    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
