I'm going to make some oven baked sweet potato fries. Meijer finally brought back the bags of Earthbound Farms organic sweet potatoes. We enjoy them so much, my husband likes to eat a baked one with no butter or anything, because they're so sweet!

I adapted it from Stephanie O'Dea's--changed a few of the amounts to make more.. 

 

4 cups of beef broth ( I use the 32 oz. carton of Kitchen  Basics)

4 tablespoons butter
3 large yellow onions, peeled and sliced in rings
1/2 tablespoon white granulated sugar
1/4 cup sherry
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 

 

 

 

--heat your crockpot to high and plop your butter in to start melting
--slice the yellow onions into rings & break up the onion slices with your fingers, and rub them around in the melted butter
--add the beef broth, sugar, salt, and sherry
--cook on high for 6-8 hours or low for 10-12. It takes a while for the onions to get translucent and pliable
 

I make a baguette, then melt cheese on it for dunking, instead of messing with crocks under the broiler. I'm lazy.

Gonna make a pork tenderloin tonight. The cook it in its own bag type, no real cleanup and we'll have a bit of meat leftover for a few nights. We picked up some of those microwave "ramen" noodle meals for me for the next few nights so I'll have warm food before falling into bed. It'll be good to have meat to add to it. I am going to go fall off the planet into geek heaven for three days. I'll see you all on Sunday.

she says you can sub white wine. My inner Julia has never believed that is true....Long before I made this crockpot recipe, I always used sherry in my french onion soup. ....definitely sherry.

If your con is becoming larger...check and see if there are several panels you want in the same room...sometimes it pays to stay in that room for whatever is sandwiched between them...ours gives out bathroom break passes too...so make sure you get those if they are passing them out ;)

The kids are making a fruit salad. We're going to serve the fruit salad with some coconut whipped cream. The rest of the meal is sweet potato fries, baked tofu, and leftover rice.

I got this pan and it is great for lasagna.  The sides are taller than a regular pan.

Well, strike one for my first night at the hotel.  NO refrigerator or microwave in the room.  The guy at the desk offered to store my food in the fridge in the employee area so that is good.  The hotel is next door to a grocery store so I walk over to find something for dinner.  I finally found some cut salami that was gluten-free so I added that to the cheese and crackers I brought for snacks.  I was hoping to get something hot at the deli but the girl gave me the deer in the headlights look and said "gluten, that's sugar right"..so I passed.  The only restaurant in town besides Kentucky Fried Chicken is called Bread, Brew and something....nothing gluten-free there.  One more night here...

I am stumped by this because I just traveled over 1300 miles in 2 weeks and I found food at every grocery store even in a tiny town in Southern Georgia.. I also made sure I got hotel rooms with a fridge and a micro. It's just better for us if those things are available. Or at least find one with a micro in the lobby.

You have to assemble a to-go kit with a knife, some utensils, zip locks, paper plates, paper towels, bowls I picked up at Walmart's for a buck--that sort of thing. I have a small bottle of dishwashing soap too.

Not picking on you here, hon--not at all!

but seriously....  advance planning is essential and every supermarket has food you can eat. Almost all packaged deli meat  is gluten free. It is RARE for gluten to be in deli meat (mortadella is about the one that any company has ever told me will contain it)

You can eat ,Cheese, yogurt, fruit, cut up veggies, peanut butter. Bring crunchmaster crackers, kind bars, chex G F cereal, nuts etc....buy a small bottle of milk. Did you bring ANYTHING with you? I also have canned soup and a can opener in my car when I travel.  

it's not good to be hungry when you are trying to recover.

    • I use almond, and coconut a lot now my bakery used to use oat and almond blends. We never used rice, or starches as our goal was to keep it low glycemic. Now days we are transitioning to cut out oats. I started having....ok I omitted and gave in after being in denial a similar reaction to oats (10% of celiacs do if I recall) over a year ago. Anyway as for flour blends premade avoiding rice and grains try simple mills at https://www.simplemills.com/collections/all I have composed a huge list of various gluten-free goods here, even recently updated with grain free, and pizza section https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • Hello Everyone, New here and have joined because I couldn't find an answer to my question online. I was diagnosed after a long spell with anemia in 2015 and have been on the diet (and improving!) ever since. But I wonder whether how much rice I'm eating is very healthy. I have always liked to bake and it took awhile to find a flour mix I like (Cup 4 Cup - worth its weight in gold...), but a lot of gluten-free food subs in rice (white rice, brown rice, rice flour) plus I eat actual rice as a side dish. Is this too much? Keep in mind, I also eat salads like it's my job and love making vegetable soups too. Any advice on gluten-free foods (specifically flours) that don't fall back on rice as a substitute? I should add that I can't really get excited about quinoa, despite my best efforts. Thanks in advance.  
    • I would say get retested, to be sure, do a gluten challenge with her where she eats gluten for 12 weeks, not much just a half slice of bread a day or a wheat cracker for the blood test and 2 weeks for the biopsy. You mentioned bumps, and dry patches...this might be DH from celiacs and if it is you can go to a dermatologist and they can test it. In some people with DH reactions to gluten, their intestines do not show much damage as most of the antibodies are directed elsewhere. In this case you would have your symptoms. Now Celiac is a autoimmune disease that commonly has other auto immune diseases associated with it. NOW if your daughter has the gene for it she could have another automimmune disease I am not very familiar with and someone else might be able to help you more on suggestions for testing. Now in my personal opinion it sounds like she was still getting into gluten when you said she was off of it. NOTE gluten is a tricky bugger, it is a protein smaller then a germ that can stick in cracks and scratches on all your utensils, food prep area, knifes, etc. As a flour it can hang in the air for hours and even be inhaled effecting some of us. It is present in a lot of things we do not consider, like makeup, playdough, shampoos, seasonings, sauces, even some dry wall spackles.  Now if she is in a shared house hold with other kids and not everyone is on this diet she has likely been getting into gluten somewhere, like touching glutened surfaces the other kids touched after eating gluten foods then putting her hand in her mouth or on safe foods. Or just randomly eating gluten foods, note symptoms can last weeks and wane from how it is effecting you. It does not take much to trigger symptoms you might have to be more careful and move her to a whole foods only diet, and have a separate prep area, utensils, cooking zone for her if you wish to keep fixing separate meals for her vs the gluten family.     I would suggest just changing the entire family over, anyway perhaps start with a separate fold out table, use freezer paper to line the prep area, a microwave, mini toaster oven, and some microwave cook ware like steamers, steam bags, etc. and using gloves to fix her meals. She will need her own condiment jars (crumbs in hte jars) and area for safe snacks. I would suggest getting her only gluten-free CERTIFIED FOODS for now. You can find some whole food healthy snacks at mygerbs.com, and a few other places. I will provide a link to gluten-free food list. PERHAPS you can change the entire family over....now days it is more like changing brands as everything you used to eat is available in a gluten-free brand. ALSO have a lot of dairy free options there. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • Hi wondering if someone could help. my daughter has mildly raised TTG  levels and the gliadine levels, she has one Coeliacs gene, but her biopsy came back negative.   We have kept her off gluten (and low dairy) for nearly a year to see if her symptoms improved.  They haven't.  But I don't know if they are related to gluten specifically.  Just wondering if anyone has other suggestions that may be going on with her.  Her symptoms are: - Short stature, she's nearly 9 and my 6 year old boy is nearly bigger than her - bumps on back of her arms - urine leaking and occasional soiled pants, which could be from constipation she has at time's - sticking out stomach - dry patchy rashes on her face - joint pain sporadically - vomits every 6 weeks, but hasn't had gluten and seems to be no food connection - reoccurring thrush She had gluten last night at a party and was fine today. I'm a bit lost and not sure where else to turn.  Thanks for any help.
    • We have gone gluten free, our whole house, as of a month ago. It was pretty seamless since I had been gluten-free for 5 months last year. I have found many good recipes, and my picky husband and one of my boys who is also a picky eater, even prefer many gluten-free recipes to the regular ones.  My husband did see my point about the size of the gluten protein means nothing. Its a gluten protein period, that's what you are avoiding. It doesn't matter if its hiding in the scratch of your baking sheet and you can't see it. You can't see the wind, but it's still there. I hear you on the anemia. I've been anemic for several years, I just thought it as because I was getting a little older. Has your anemia gone away or do you still have problems with it?
