Thanks Irish! :) The zucchini that I got given to me were enormous and the pancake recipe came nowhere near using them up! I will check those out.

 

I used to work in South Florida--I did a 9 month missionary project down in the Florida Keys. While I was there I stayed on Grassy Key, about 6 miles from the town of Marathon.

Yummy zoodles....I eat them with all kinds of sauce or butter and garlic....good stuff! Recently replaced my large countertop spirilizer with a handlehld little one that works great with less clean up...shaped like two cones with their tips joined...I think I may have linked to it before...will check when back on laptop.

Glad you had a great time Addie, but if I head to salt lake anytime soon it'll be to snowbird and alta, perhaps a day at brightstar (oldest son's first day on skis was there at three years old...we have loads of fun memories in Utah). Hubs and I used to stay in a tiny hotel in Heber city for 10-12 days for 22 bucks a night with a kitchenette...even before celiac...we always wanted a kitchen when we traveled to save money...and then drove to all the resorts from Park City to Snowbird...skipped deer park their lift tickets were much more expensive....man I miss those trips! Once the Olympics were there the prices never came back down :(

People have been talking about how they want the summer Olympics here. I see some of those slideshows of the abandoned, awful places after the Olympics are over and how everything falls apart and nothing ever gets used again. That just didn't happen here so people are pretty eager to do the summer thing. Even though I wasn't here when Utah hosted the winter Olympics, I really hate the idea. The spillover of tourists and traffic will come all the way down to me I'm sure, and my husband uses the freeway to travel to work every day. I could skip the whole thing. Of course, I skip the whole snow thing too. :P

 

Besides all the normal geek stuff I did that I was (and still am) super excited about, I did some new things too. There is a local (to Utah) dance theater group called Odyssey Dance Theatre that does a show called Thriller every Halloween that I always mean to go to but forget to get tickets until they sell out. They did a shortened version of the show there on two days, which was incredible. It's part dance, part theater, and all awesome. The Salt Lake Pops Orchestra did an hour long show to end the night Friday night. It was entirely popular geek movie and TV show music. So besides just being a geek I got some culture too. ^_^

 

Tonight I'll make battered fish and probably tater tots. No matter how crappy I'm still feeling, cleaning up after three days has to be on my to-do list and so does sewing so I'll be working for at least part of my day and don't want to put to much effort into supper. I'm also just counting down til I get incredibly sick with what my husband is finally getting over. He loves to share. <_<

Lentil soup (with kale and rainbow quinoa in it for a little variation) and hopefully either homemade bread or pull apart dinner rolls, whichever I get around to making this afternoon.

Hubs took me out for lunch today.  Went to the Roosters place.  I talked to the Kitchen Mgr., as usual, and they use sauces and seasoning on the grill.  He offered to clean a section of grill for me to make my chicken.  So thankful to this Manager.  He went beyond what I expected  :D   Had a wonderful Chicken Cesar Salad.   Yummmmm

i make zucchini lasagne that is delicious and easy - just make like you would 'normally' make lasagne except sub zucchini sliced thin lengthwise for noodles.  it takes longer to cook, depending on how soft you like your 'noodles'  :)

I'm dining out of my go bag. Mom was transferred from hospital to rehab and caught a nasty bug along the way...so I'm sticking with her for now until her lungs clear.

So almonds, Justin's chocolate almond butter, astronaut veggie/fruit squeezes along with tons of coffee ;)

PS...I think Sandie dog has a future as a therapy dog...she has been making folks here in the rehab/skilled nursing facility happy all day.....even had a nice fellow become animated and tell us a great old doggie joke...will share later.

That was nice of him, but honestly, I liked him  as Puddy.

 

I didn't like Seinfeld. :ph34r: I have seen lots of it though and he was always awesome. The last episode was epic. "Alright." Bahahahaha!

Waffle iron hash browns is a brilliant idea....I think I'll throw some shredded sweet potato in my iron when I get home today.

Thanks Ruth :)

I threw a whole chicken with a bunch of fresh rosemary and a bit of broth in KFG before I left to check on mom this morning. I should be home to move it from frig to counter, but if not the guys can do it between school and work so we will all have an easy hot dinner.

Don't forget to tell those you love that you do...today.

Love you guys ;)

I've tried them with sweet potatoes and somehow they don't come out the same. But russet potatoes work well!

I shred up russet potatoes and toss them with olive oil and salt and them cook until brown and crispy in my waffle iron.

I know I saw one with tator tots but this is the basic idea of using your own potatoes

I think I might pick up a steak tonight.  I saw they have an Outback Steakhouse near me and it seems like they are very gluten friendly and have good procedures in place!  If not, I can pick one up at the grocery store and broil it---just not the same as grilled steak though.

I like your kitty Kat, K. (and you think I don't notice). Also like your quote--good one. ;)

 

Don't forget to tell those you love that you do...today.

 

 

I :wub:  you. I am thinking about you and your Mom and sending hugs.

 

 

 

Okee dokee, this evening is shaping up to be pizza night. (what? you say! but it is not Friday night!) I know. I know.

 

but my friend with the G F bakery sent me some nice fresh flour mix and it makes terrific pizza shells and rolls.

 

Baking later and well, if the dough  is right there, rising and all, I figure.....

I've been to Outback a few times over the last couple years and never had a problem. Of course, every location has the potential to be very different but hopefully you'll have a good experience. :)

 

I think tonight I'm going to finally get to that orange sauce I picked up last week at the Asian market. I'll make orange chicken tonight. Yay!!! There really is nothing quite like homemade, "breaded" nuggets of meat deep fried to perfection. We'll have some sort of rice and veggie with it of course. I think I still have half a bag of peas and carrots in the freezer and could make a nice fried rice for myself. mmmmmmm......

I prefer a gluten free friendly place myself.     :D   

 

Outback is a gluten free friendly place.  I think they were trained by GIG?  Not sure.  You could check the GIG site.  Part of what makes them safer is that the steaks, baked potatoes, green beans, etc don't normally have gluten in them for any diner.

Dad came to see mom so I ran home for real food and to take care of other details of life.

Wanted fresh food so ended up grating two yams...out of sweet potato :(

Then I squeezed the hell out of them in a tea towel...used butter in the iron then threw the grated yam and garlic salt on top...worked great!

Just sitting down to a yamwaffle cheeseburger...thanks ladies!

    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
    • While you could very well be vitamin/mineral deficient, you could also have issues with your thyroid.  Autoimmune thyroid is common with .......autoimmune celiac disease.  Your doctor should order a full thyroid panel, including thyroid antibodies.   Your blood sugar should also be checked (autoimmune diabetes).  I am not saying you have these issues, but these AI issues are common with celiac disease.  In fact, you can develop or have more than one AI issue.   If I feel a very strong need to nap, I know my thyroid is off and my doctor should be notified.  A simple blood test usually verifies that an adjustment to my thyroid replacement is needed.   That said, you are in the healing stages of celiac disease.   Eat healthy and include plenty of fats to keep you satiated.  Try to avoid processed foods.  Make sure that gluten-free diet is varied and full of veggies.  Get plenty of rest.  Just listen to your body.  Soon you will feel much better.  
    • Hi and welcome Can you tell us a little about your diet? What are you eating on a typical day? You may find that some simple switches in food choices can deliver more energy and fewer spikes and crashes. This is something that receives too little attention, particularly from the medical community. It can come as a huge shock to the system and as the implications become apparent its easy to feel overwhelmed. This certainly happened to me and many others here so first do know that you're not alone. You are currently grieving believe it or not and you will be going through the stages of grief.  Second, although it may not feel it now, it WILL get better and you will adjust and adapt as you get used to the diet and start focusing on what you can still do rather than what you can't.  In the meantime, this is a good place to vent and share those feelings as they are perfectly natural and understandable and whilst not always helpful,  they are a part of you and a part of the healing process. Go easy on yourself, this is very early days. You are young, which is good news, it means you will heal sooner and you will adapt quicker and there's lots of good things on the way for you as your body gets a rest from the gluten that's been holding you back.  All the best! Matt
    • Hope it proves of use  The Umberto Volta interview is particularly interesting and the case study from England also...
    • Following a gallbladder surgery, I could not get my digestive system back to normal.  After several months of constant diarrhea, I went to see the gastro dr. and told her my problems. I also mentioned that I had a sister, brother and nephew with Celiacs.  She said, "I'm almost sure that's the problem".  I, like you, did not want to go back to eating gluten so I did the gene test but it was not positive.  I learned it is not always an exact test.  It came back with Crohns which so far I have no symptoms.  The Endoscopy  indicated Hpylori, CDiff, and one other bacteria.  After I took all the meds to clear my body of these bacterias, I was still having  some symptons of diarrhea and found that I thought I was clear of all gluten but I had a long way to go. Throwing away a wooden cutting board my dad had given me, lipstick, lipgloss, makeup, handcream, plastics in the kitchen, pans that had a scratch, any item in the pantry that had any of the items with starch that may have gluten and the list goes on and on.  I'm still reading labels but I definately can tell a difference as I have eliminated more items that I had no idea were harmful.  This website has been a life-saver for me.  Thank You so much for your wealth of information.   Linda Fortson
