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.

Grilling chicken wings and zucchini tonight with salad.

Prepping food for camping this weekend at the beach. Tomorrow afternoon, I will be reading and drinking a glass of wine with my old faithful lab lying next to me in the sand! Can not wait!

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.

    • 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.
    • I feel the same way! Newly diagnosed (gluten-free since July 1) and never had major GI symptoms mostly neurological issues and other very random stuff. So no red flags to tell me, "You just glutened yourself!" Or at least I haven't identified them yet. I'm not sure if I'm feeling better or not yet. I do have more energy but lots of anxiety and random symptoms that might be celiac related... but who knows. I'm just not sure if this is what "feeling better" is yet. I can't imagine what that is like... or will be like. And I keep reading about people "getting sick" when they are glutened but that is so vague. For me, I'm not sure I'll know if I've actually been glutened or not. I feel like I'm extremely careful but I'm not sure if I'm being over the top, or if I'm doing it right, or not enough and need to do more. I'd just like to get to a nice gluten-free baseline and note what that is like so that I can compare how I used to feel and how I might feel if glutened so that I'll know! Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread and provide no answers. I can just relate, that's all.
