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

 

 

 

 

 

I like that little Kitty,too.

 

Babysat the baby nephew yesterday.  He is about 10 months.  He has 3 dogs at his house.  My cat is fascinating to him.  She was very good with him.  Maybe had a baby in a past house.  She lets him touch her but stands or sits just at the end of his reach.  It sounded like he kept saying "cat".

 

Some of these TV stations weather reporting is nuts.  They interrupt programs to report on bad weather 100+ miles away that isn't coming to the area.  Very annoying.

Well, I tried it with sweet potatoes and they fell apart again! They just don't hold together for me like when I use Russet potatoes. I tossed grated sweet potatoes with melted earth balance butter and salt. Hmmm.....Maybe time to google to see what I did wrong.

I like to sub in sweet potatoes for regular potatoes in things, and I find that the key to having them stay intact is to get the outsides crisped up before the inside is cooked... then you still have something for the cooked moosh to kind of hold on to.  So I will roast them in the oven and make sure to get that crisp on the outside real good... I am not sure what you could do with the waffle iron thing, though.  

 

Tonight I am making spaghetti with meat sauce and broccoli, and some chebe rolls I froze.  Cheezy bread is always a good choice.

I would say add a little egg and a smidge of flour.  But you don't do egg.

 

Has anyone tried the waffle iron using mashed potatoes - sweet or white?  My Irish Grandma used to take leftover mashed potatoes add a bit of egg and flour and fry like a pancake.  We called the Irish latkes.  The recipe book guy did left-over mac and cheese in them.  Let me see if he did anything to the mac and cheese.

Actually I eat eggs, lots of them. :) So egg would be a perfectly good option.

They added egg to make the mac and cheese stick and bread crumbs.   

 

But if you eat eggs - then try some eggs and a spoonful or two of gluten-free flour.   I have used any all-purpose for the Irish latkes or rice flour.

 

I thought you were vegan?  Just a dairy intolerant vegetarian?

No, I'm not vegan. Just a vegetarian who doesn't tolerate dairy well.

 

I love eggs and have resisted any effort from my vegan friends to convince me to give them up. :)

My point exactly. I generally try to be polite and avoid stirring up drama, but when my vegan friends preach about the evils of eggs, I feel very tempted to say, "Try cooking gluten free AND vegan for 6 months and then get back to me on that."  :P

 

I know that being gluten free and vegan is possible, but it's certainly not anything that I feel like taking on.  :ph34r:

Don't think you did anything wrong.

K provided a link that said melt butter on the iron and some other stuff. I went with that and the fact that you said sweet potato didn't work and squeezed as much moisture out of my grated yams as possible. Oh...and turned the heat down to lowest setting as I wanted them to cook, not burn.

We do potato pancakes with left over mashies...going to try it in the waffle iron next weekend.

Ever since coming to Croatia in May, we have sort of fallen from the low-carb lifestyle a bit and I can really feel it.  Strangely, we have not gained any weight but I crave carbs as I used to...when I was doing my best, I had no cravings whatsoever.  And now, the more carbs I have, the more I want.  I really need to stop this cycle.  :huh:  Carbs bloat me.  So, no more potatoes for me or awhile.  But guess what I made?  Pizza!!!  High carb, delicious, unctuous, incredible pizza.  Again.  And a chocolate chestnut torte with a lovely cream cheese frosting (this was actually very low carb, to sort of justify the pizza ;)). 

 

Low carbs.  Tomorrow.  ^_^

My latest gluten free achievement was a chocolate molten lava cake served on a dab of Mrs. Richardson's caramel.  YUM!

My splurge today was a Justin's peanut butter cup from the health food store. Yum!

 

Today was a blur of activity and appointments with my 8 year old daughter's doctor's appointment (got the celiac panel ordered, yay!) and my husband getting his 3 unit bridge done, so I'm going easy for supper. Vegan seafood with tartar sauce. :)

Love it!

That would have been welcomed at California ... Especially the Labor Day race used to be hot as hell...I paid 25 bucks one season for the water truck to fill a kiddy pool...everyone laughed at me until they ended pulling their camp chairs to the edge to dangle their feet in my pool! Made the water too dirty for the toddler racetrack neighbor...but fun for all the other kids :)

My very generous husband shared his bug with me.  <_< Supper got cancelled last night and again tonight. I've been eating soup when I can manage to eat anything and told him he's on his own. Hopefully by Friday night I'll get my orange chicken. That's my plan anyway. Until then it's soup, soup and more soup.

    • Learn more about testing for celiac disease here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You do have to be on a gluten diet for ANY of the celiac tests (blood and biopsy) to work.  While the endoscopy (with biopsies) can reveal villi damage, many other things besides celiac disease can cause villi damage too: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So, both the blood test and endoscopy are usually ordered.  There are some exceptions, but those are not common.  
    • Exactly what are your allergy symptoms?  Were they IgG or IgE?  Allergy testing as a whole is not super accurate -- especially the IgG.  Were you on any H1 or H2 antihistamines for the last five days  when you were tested?   As far as celiac testing, four days without consuming gluten probably would not impact testing.  
    • I've been seeing my dr for a few weeks now about my stomach issues. We've ruled out the gallbladder and h-pylori and today I had the celiac blood tests done. From the reading I've done the past two days, it seems to me that it's highly likely that I have it. I've had digestive issues for years, but they've gotten progressively worse over the past 6 months or so. Pain and nausea when eating, bloat, eternal constipation, dh rash, at it's worse, tight cramp-like pain in a fist under my sternum, radiating through my back and around my right side keeping me up at night. Also heartburn/reflux and trouble swallowing, etc. 

      Anyway, about 2 months ago, I needed a change. I didn't go to the dr immediately because it seemed pointless. (I've mentioned stomach ache when eating to drs before and been blown off.) So, I started the Whole30 elimination diet (takes out soy, grains, dairy, peanuts, and leaves you basically eating meat & veggies). Figured it would show me what I needed to take out of my diet and hopefully feel better. It worked- I felt great! And it seems that grains and gluten are my biggest offenders. But, now I've been off gluten prior to celiac testing. It's been 7 weeks. After 4 weeks I tested steal cut oats, that I later found out were probably glutened. And then nothing until yesterday. Yesterday I had 2 pieces of bread and a muffin and today I had two pieces of bread and then the blood test. Is this going to be enough to show up on the tests? My dr said that it would probably show up, since I had some yesterday and today and was currently having symptoms. But, google seems to say that I should be glutened for 2 wks straight before testing. Has anyone tested positive after just a little gluten? If it's negative should I insist on doing it again after weeks back on gluten? I feel awful, but do want clear answers. Obviously, gluten's not going to be a part of my life any more either way. 
    • So just to clarify  had not consumed any gluten for about 4 days before testing. I was assured by my allergist that it wouldn't affect the test. But what was alarming was that she retested my food allergies (my most recent reaction was two weeks ago) and every food allergy I have came back negative. I don't understand how that is possible. These food allergies developed when I was 20 and I am almost 24 now.
    • Thanks! You too! I have learned from this experience to take charge of my own health. It's nice at least that we can try the gluten-free treatment without a firm diagnosis or a doctor confirming the disease. I've also felt some of the gluten withdrawal symptoms, and my stomach pain ebbs and flows, but I'm determined to stick with the gluten-free diet to see what a difference it makes. Gemini, thank you! This was really validating and useful for me to hear. I've felt so confused through this process and just want some answers. If the biopsy results do come back negative, I'm going to follow your advice and do the gluten-free diet with repeat blood testing after a while. If they come back positive, well, then I'll have my answer. I'm supposed to get them back next week.
