You know I can't do soy sauce or soy flour, but that small amount of soy lecithin does not bother me and I thought the Gratify brand was very good.

Snyders's too. (J prefers those) 

 

 

Dinner tonight is looking like our old pal Chebe Pizza .....and a movie. Storms are rolling in....

Pretzels with white choc chips keep calling my name!

Dinner tonight is meatloaf and mashies along with something green.

Picked up a few supplies for a mini celebration...vodka, lemoncello and superfine sugar for the rims of martini glasses...no whining tonight :)

Happy Friday Dinner Peeps!

Long few days, mom transferred from hospital to rehab...tomorrow is a new day.

Men in kitchen and at the Q...dropped a bag of steak and beer on the island on my way to yhe igloo...lol that sentance has a lot of shorthand...a little overtired but not froggy ;)

Annie's Mac and cheese is good in a pinch...I can't eat it but the men have...Sam mills makes a box for less money that is a tad better I'm told.

Oh...the men all have a friend over even hubs so I think I'll drink for awhile until the heat and humidity subside then toddle out of the cool room to forage steak, etc.

Both the puppies are in here with me :D

I hope your mom gets feeling better. It's always difficult to see the people we love not feeling their best. :(

 

I had an incredible three days. My husband got sick by the end of Thursday night so he only went with me one day, but we had a great time together and he got an awesome souvenir. I got to see an organizer have Bruce Campbell help him propose to his girlfriend, John Barrowman (gayest, most incredible hour of my life), Eve Myles, at one point in a random best of Dr. Who panel both doctors who were attending just walked in on us. OMG! And I got to actually not only meet Patrick Warburton but he did a short video for me to send to my husband since he wasn't able to attend, and he hugged me. Finished off my weekend with an incredible Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog singalong which is always an amazing experience to get 900 people in a room doing that. I'm exhausted, in shoot myself pain, and still on such I high that it could be hours before I'm able to collapse into sleep. I think I'll hold over until the April event just fine. And.... by head count according the the fire marshal (we're waiting for official notice) we're the #1 comic con in the country after this event. BOOM! Utah geeks rule, I love my state!

 

Dinner? I think I still have one microwave meal left but I need to settle down before I can eat. I'm just way too hyper for food now, but in a few hours I'll get hungry.

My KFG (Crock Pot) is my go to for cooking anything decent  :lol: Hubs is a wiz with all the pots and pans and such.  He gets seriously excited when I attempt something new in the Crock because he knows I have one more meal that I can actually make for both of us  :D Of course, I swapped the soup for gluten-free.  It really did turn out great and made a large amount.  

 

Here is the recipe I used:

 

Easy Crock Pot Potato Soup

Ingredients: 
1 30oz. bag of frozen diced hash browns
1 32 oz box of chicken broth
1 can of cream of chicken soup (10 oz)
1 pkg. cream cheese (8 oz, not fat free)
3 oz bacon bits 
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese 
salt and pepper to taste 

Directions:
Put the potatoes in the crockpot. Add in the chicken broth, cream of chicken soup and half of the bacon bits. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. 
Cook on low for 8 hours or until potatoes are tender. 
An hour before serving, cut the cream cheese into small cubes. Place the cubes in the crock pot. Mix a few times throughout the hour before serving. 
Once the cream cheese is completely mixed in, it's ready to serve. 
Top with cheddar cheese and some additional bacon bits.

Irish, for some reason I am unable to reply to specific posts...strange.  No idea why but noticed it happening perhaps a week or two ago. 

 

But you simply MUST come, it is not optional.  Clothes are.  It is Europe, after all.  Speaking of which, do I have stories to tell!  But not on a food thread.  :lol:  Now all we have to do is finalize a date.  ^_^

I always love your email updates, so I look forward to new stories.  ^_^

 

I have to renew my passport and save up some cash. Building  a house has wiped me out. lol

Next year is looking like a distinct possibility. I know you'd take good care of any of us if we actually showed up....

and you'll love us even more if we bring supplies.  :D

Got so excited thinking about traveling (I have such wanderlust! ^_^ ) I forgot to say what's for dinner tonight....

 

Vietnamese chicken salad rolls with sweet Thai chili sauce.<<  I could put that stuff on dirt and eat it probably.

 

btw, I can't believe football season has begun.....it's 88 and sunny and it still feels like summer.

Making Chicken Fajitas tonight.  Finally REAL food!!  I had some sausage for lunch that was very good.  I can't remember the brand, A______??  I tossed the wrapper already.  

Question about brats, hotdogs, etc.--are they generally gluten-free or not?  I haven't seen any listed as gluten-free and many have caramel color (which is not gluten-free??).

I had to run to the store to pick up some cold medicine and OJ for my husband. I grabbed some fish and a bagged salad for myself while I was there for an easy dinner tonight. I'm probably not going to do anything today, just sit and relax and recuperate. Then it's back to working tomorrow, lots to sew to make up for what I sold last week.

lmao...was thinking that same thing myself... ^_^  the "frisk" part should be enjoyable  anyway.

we may need "notes" from our doctors saying  "this person is carrying G F flours" or maybe a letter from our 

lawyers....or a US senator...or emigration officials....or....

Just a quick pop- in. I want to go too! I think weight would limit the amount of flour we could bring. I would keep all the receipts, too. Might help explain it?

Last night we had some chili in the freezer and a bunch of partial bags of Ore- Ida fries, and some partial bags of shredded cheese. Guess what we had? :).

We are cleaning out all the food. When the boys were home, we would need about 2/3 of a bag of fries. The partial bags would get pushed to the back.

Tonight we are having burgers and cantaloupe and potato chips and toasted marshmallows for dessert!

Tomorrow we are having some pasta with marinara, a little arugula, pesto and Italian sausage added to it.

To catch up, some of our meals lately - brats & fruit , ate at Waldo pizza, ate at PF Chang's, salads with stuff from the farmers market.

    • Why not give up supplements for a while?  Not everyone is deficient in vitamins and minerals -- or at least dangerously so.  Ask your doctor to check.   I take no supplements.  My doctor runs a vitamin panel at my yearly check-up.   I do make sure my diet is healthy and varied -- like eating veggies even at breakfast!   People who are gluten free and eat junk food will probably need supplements.   Look to your diet, lotions, shampoo....anything you can swallow to see if you are getting gluten into your diet.  That is most likely the cause of your recent symptoms.  At least rule out that you are having a celiac flare-up.  
    • So to repeat, you will have to do a gluten challenge which is 12 weeks of eating 1 slice of bread per day for the blood tests or 2 weeks of gluten eating for an endoscopy.
    • I'm celiac for less than 3 months.   I'm starting to get concern about getting all the necessary vitamins being gluten free.   Recently my joint pain has increased, pulsating pain in my head, and sore areas in legs and neck have started recently.  Or course, anxiety too. I'm currently taking a Centrum Men's Multivitamin.  Here's what in it: Vitamin A 3,500 IU (29 % as Beta - Carotene)  70%
      Vitamin C 90mg  150%
      Vitamin D 1,000 IU  250%
      Vitamin E 45IU  150%
      Vitamin K 60mcg  75%
      Thiamin 1.2mg  80%
      Riboflavin 1.3mg  76%
      Niacin 16mg  80%
      Vitamin B6 2mg  100%
      Folic Acid 200 mcg  50%
      Vitamin B 126mcg  100%
      Biotin 40mcg  13%
      Pantothenic Acid 15mg  150%
      Calcium 210mg  21%
      Iron 8 mg  44%
      Phosphorus 20 mg  2%
      Iodine 150mcg  100%
      Magnesium 100 mg  25%
      Zinc 11mg  73%
      Selenium 100mcg  143%
      Copper 0.9mg  45%
      Manganese 2.3mg 115%
      Chromium 35mcg  29%
      Molybdenum 50mcg  67%
      Chloride 72 mg  2% Potassium 80 mg  2%   I really can't believe after being diagnoses that my doctor didn't get me a list of recommend supplements to include the vitamin deficiencies by not having gluten in my diet.   Everyone has to do it on their own. I don't really want to avoid taking a bunch of pills in the morning if I can.   But I'm concerned I'm not getting enough Magnesium and Iron.   Other too? Any recommendations of supplements to increase what I'm currently taking.   Or just on supplement that includes everything I need? Thx.            
    • As far as the grey hair goes, I understand how you feel as I started going seriously grey in my mid 20's also.  As cyclinglady stated, there is nothing you can do about that except color you hair or live with the grey hair.  I chose to color it. Grey hair is generally either a genetic thing or it can be the result of vitamin deficiencies or illness.  It also can't be reversed, which would be heavenly, I agree! You definitely need a full  thyroid panel done because you cannot diagnose Hashi's on antibodies alone.  I have Hashi's so know the drill.  No doctor should tell people to just go gluten free without some level of testing for Celiac.  Those with Hashi's can benefit greatly from going gluten free but that is because those that it helps noticeably also probably do have full blown Celiac.....without Celiac or non-Celiac gluten sensitivity, the gluten-free diet won't help. The supplement you mentioned is just that....a supplement.  If you do have true Hashi's, you'll need more than that to help keep thyroid function normal for you.  I think you need to see another doctor because your doc is missing the boat here.  You really should have a full thyroid panel done and a full Celiac panel.  It is important to diagnosis (or not) these 2 conditions early so you won't have more problems down the road.  Can you request more blood work?
    • Lotions used topically are not a concern at all unless they contain gluten and you ingest them into your mouth.  Gluten has to get into your GI tract, (which begins in your mouth) for damage to occur.  Ditto for hair care products.  As most salons have you bend your head back into a sink to wash, the odds of any shampoo or conditioner getting into your mouth are slim to none. If you shower and let the soap and water run down your face, then make your home shampoo/products gluten free.
