Didn't I tell you my hubs shared his bug with me a few weeks ago? It's inevitable...we live with them. LOL

But when I made soup, at least I gave him a bowl of it too.  -_-

 

My trip to the produce stand yielded a treasure trove of things: pluots, tomatillos, eggplant, patty pan squash, cabbage and although it is too soon to bring one home just yet: pumpkins! 

 

Making grilled Meditteranean pork burgers tonight (damn, those are tasty things!) with a side of roasted patty pan squash.

 

Friday will be Green gazpacho with chili cumin shrimp 

 

Saturday will be Stuffed Cabbage rolls (Galumpkis as my Polish friends call them) in the KFG

 

Sunday Eggplant parmesan

 

Have a  good weekend everyone and.... let us never forget 9/11

 

P/S It's been a real joy talking & sharing with you guys. ;)  be good! Caio xxoo G

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Pluots/plumcots.  I have always loved plums, but since the plumcots have been widely available, for a pretty long season in my area, I am eating them all the time.  Perfect combination of both fruits.

 

Last night I made tacos with beans... tonight I am probably just going to whip up some grilled chicken and whatever veggies I have on hand.  I treated myself with chik fil a and fries for lunch so need to be good for dinner!

Tonight I had a big juicy beef burger on an Udi's bun with some crunchy tator tots. Such a naughty yet satisfying meal.  :D

Good for you! A lady needs the iron from the beef! ( that's how I rationalize it ). Lol

We had some smoked meat in the freezer and we made sandwiches with lots of BBQ sauce and some Ore Ida oven fries.

It was heaven. I wish I had the energy for more spontaneous meals like this but usually default to grilled chicken, rice and veggies. I need to invest in a weekend day organize crock pot freezer meals.

Sounds like I'm not the only one who likes to splurge on Ore Ida stuff. ;)

 

I took the kids out to Fazoli's for spaghetti and breadsticks to get their gluten quotient in for the day and I pretty much had to live on peaches, peanut butter, and apple slices until my shopping trip was finished. As my daughter put it, "Mama, the only thing that you can eat here is their apple juice."  :lol:

 

So when I got home, I splurged and cooked up some Ore Ida tater tots in the waffle iron. I also heated up some Beyond Meat chicken free strips, lightly cooked broccoli, and leftover basmati rice. Mmm! So tasty and filling.

 

I got a couple of chocolate splurges today. I got some Santa Cruz organic chocolate syrup (https://www.google.com/search?q=organic+gluten+free+chocolate+syrup&es_sm=93&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=cGISVLzSL4_5yQTx7IGoDg&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAg&biw=1920&bih=951#tbm=isch&q=santa+cruz+organic+gluten+free+chocolate+syrup&facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=z5by1MQfBO38sM%253A%3BTTtNzgDj0wTSEM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn6.bigcommerce.com%252Fs-cw1rp75%252Fproducts%252F2138%252Fimages%252F1834%252FSanta%2525252520Cruz%2525252520Organic%2525252520Chocolate%2525252520Syrup__63609.1405998728.386.513.jpg%253Fc%253D2%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.wholeandnatural.com%252Fsanta-cruz-organic-chocolate-syrup-15-5-oz%252F%3B150%3B300) and also bought a 4 pound bag of chocolate chips from GFS. There was no gluten ingredients and the only facility warning on there was for peanuts and treenuts or something like that.

 

I'm going to make some banana ice cream and serve it with the chocolate syrup. Yum!

I'm feeling slightly better. I'm managing to get out of bed a little at least, but I think I'm sticking to soup still for the day. Unfortunately this means making myself semi-presentable and dragging myself to the store or waiting til my husband comes home tonight to go for me but I'd rather just get my own. I've just been buying soup because I guess I'm lazy, and my husband doesn't like any of the type of soup I like so that's why I wasn't sharing. :P (Remember, he may be a grown man but acts like a toddler who thinks they're allergic to everything called a vegetable. :lol:)

 

Awesome news today though. His department manager transferred out of his department to try other things, the more departments you have experience in, the more likely you are to get higher in the management ranks at Walmart. He interviewed for the department she ended up getting, but we're perfectly happy for him to have been turned down for that. He got the department he's been working in since he started!  ^_^ We're both thrilled and excited. The only daunting thing is that both previous managers for his department worked from 6 to whenever. Oh God.... he'll have to leave for work at 5:30 in the morning. That's the less than exciting part, we're going to have to turn our schedules upside down and neither of us have ever been morning people. :unsure:

It's just me and the kids right now. Hubby is usually home on Fridays (works a 4 day work week) but he's off helping friends move.

 

The kids and I are having sauteed chicken free strips with veggies (cabbage, carrots, and broccoli) and rainbow quinoa. I tried out a new type of soy sauce and I really like it! It is San-J Tamari Lite. https://www.google.com/search?q=San-J+Tamari+Lite&es_sm=93&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=cEETVKPwMNe1yASu8YGgAQ&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAg&biw=1920&bih=951#facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=Zn9Hd5tZ_8lEmM%253A%3B5Xw66qoQeOkMbM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.san-j.com%252Fimages%252Fproducts%252Fmedium%252F28.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.san-j.com%252Fproduct_info.asp%253Fid%253D28%3B250%3B200

I'm making rotisserie chicken tonight.  I'll either make some Ore Ida hash browns or some baby yukon gold roasted potatoes.  I have always liked Ore Ida potatoes.  They are always in our freezer in some form or another. :D

I have a wicked craving for chile con carne so am making a big old pot of it.  Right now.  It will pair perfectly with bay-infused Jasmine rice and homemade garlic cheese biscuits.  This is our high-carb cheat night.  :P  Will probably make some sort of cucumber salad.

We used to live in a townhouse and the woman next to us was from India.  For whatever reason she liked to cook in the middle of the night and waking up at 3 am to overpowering Curry just is not a good thing...I can't even walk into an Indian restaurant any more.

last night we had chicken stew (sort of chicken n dumplins)  boneless chicken thighs, (bacon LOLZ), onion, celery, carrot, fresh herbs (i put them into a tea ball, that way the flavor goes in and i don't have all wilty herbs in the finished product) and gnocchi instead of the dumplins.  

 

i has a cold :(  so, that was pretty close to chicken soup.........

Beef veggie soup with a buttered Udi's dinner roll, with Christmas music in the background while my girls and I decorate for the fall. Yep, a good day indeed.

I made these! Very nice. A bit like the top of a muffin - slightly crunchy out side and muffiny inside. Next time I think I will replace the chips with chopped walnuts or pecans. I put a speck of vanilla in the glaze. I didn't put them in the fridge before baking.

Simple green salad with fresh Balkans feta cheese and local capers.  I am making a sort of Mediterranean vinaigrette.  This afternoon I made Parmesan and garlic biscuits which will go nicely with the salad.

Udi's dinner roll was yucky to say the least. Anyone have a favorite roll recipe? I see plenty recipes on Pinterest, but am not too saavy on gluten-free baking (mixing flours). I'm also tired of wasting money on prepackaged mixes or frozen items that aren't good. Any idea on where to start? I'm dying for a hot, soft roll... Drool...

The recipe for dinner rolls in the ATK book is easy and they are absolutely mouthwatering. I can not recommend enough getting that book, it isn't the only recipe in it that you'll be glad you have.

I am more of a stalker on this website and don't contribute much, but you guys are killing me with all the great foods you make.  I am going to have to be more adventerous!  

 

Last night we had Chili and I made Creme Brulee' in the Crockpot the day before and just melted the sugar last night before consuming...it was awesome!!!

Last night we had "Impossible Cheeseburger Pie" and a spinach and apple salad with pecans and a little lemony salad dressing I made.  You could add things like taco seasonings and serve with salsa but ...for some reason, we always like it just like it is.

    • So I think my daughter is reacting to Dairy?  I only really removed it 100% from her diet for a few weeks and then SLOWLY let her have some because of how difficult it was to find substitutes she liked and she was still reeling with the emotions of being restricted from so many foods.  The smell amts of dairy we allowed had no adverse effect on her (so we thought) and her improvements were still so profound and immense we felt confident that dairy was not an issue. Cue the Cheerios.  We allowed her "oats" again and Cheerios require milk and within a week BOOM all her symptoms were back - difficulty swallowing, hearing issues, dh rash on her scalp, tired, confused. Naturally I accused the oats of being the devil! So that was a week ago that I figured out that oats were evil and have easily eliminated them as Cheerios were the only source. Well here I am and she is NOT getting better.  In fact...she is now having extreme SPD symptoms again.  Things are too loud.  Smells are too strong. Her clothes feel weird, her bedding feels weird.  This all overlapped with the onset of a pretty bad head cold so I tried to be patient.  But a full week later...I think it's the dairy? I have an apt with a Naturopath to test for food sensitivities and I am wondering about having the Dr test her scalp rash? Any thoughts?  Do we assume it's dairy or could a cold on top of an oat cross contamination still be causing problems?
    • Next time just take a box of rat poisoning and extract ONE granule.  Toss it into his food (while he is watching) and give it a good stir.  Hand the food over and see if he is willing to eat it.
    • Gertrude.....just a few comments after reading your posts..........no other disease but Celiac disease will cause a positive on the EMA test.  I have never heard of a false positive on that either.  It is a test that is done by hand and not by a machine because of the way it has to be done, so having a false positive is almost impossible.  Your doctor should have known that.  Many people trip just 1 or 2 tests on the panel and they have Celiac Disease.  With autoimmune testing, you can test 2 different people with Celiac Disease and they can have wildly different test results.  Couple those with a positive gene test and the likelihood of it being Celiac is almost 100%.  The fact that the doc didn't find villus atrophy just means the damage is not extensive enough for them to find.......yet.  I am sure they would prefer you to keep eating gluten until that happens but you do not want to do that.  So.........after you have been gluten-free for awhile, have them run the Celiac panel again to see if your EMA goes to normal, which it should if you eat very gluten free. With positive gene results, positives on your Celiac antibody testing, and positive dietary response, that is a diagnosis!
    • That's great, Gertrude! I'm glad your doctors sound more competent than mine. And that you're starting to feel better.  I haven't had any abdominal or joint pain in the last few days, and I feel like I have more energy for sure. I've been feeling a little off/dizzy but that might be from gluten withdrawal.  Good luck with everything! 
    • By the way, I got my biopsy pathology report and the doctor took 2 biopsies, not the recommended 4-6. It says no "significant villous blunting not seen." I don't know if I should laugh or cry---so frustrating.
