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.

    • I know-pretty dumb. I'm usually very careful. I didn't check into it. Thanks for reply. DebLee
    • LexieA, This thread might help you. You say you never have "heartburn/GERD". You can have something called Silent Reflux. It  could also be NERD. some of these links are in this thread but I will post some releavent information in this reply as well. here is a good overview of the difference in this fox news article. http://www.foxnews.com/health/2012/11/13/gerd-or-nerd-new-type-acid-reflux-doesnt-respond-to-drugs.html but if your throwing up it is probably from Bile Relfux. . . . instead of acid reflux. I actually wrote a blog post on celiac.com about these conditions. the NYTimes article called Bile Reflux a "Shadowland" in Medicine and part of the reason for the title of the post. here is the NYtimes article about some of the issues you are describing. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/30/health/30brod.html throwing up is actually a protective reaction. and this normally protect us from poison's or food poisioning etc. but when our biofeedack loop is broken down like having bile in the stomach instead of the small intestine . . . it can be hard to break this cycle. The green portion is probably the bile portion. It is actually very caustic as Plumbago pointed out.  this would/coul scald our insides (lower GI/Small Intestines). Normally stomach acid is neutralized by bile after it leaves the stomach . .. not while in the stomach. I wouldn't never recommend anybody do this on purpose . .. but if you are already puking your food up then simply buy a pH test kit. testing your food/chyme/puke (food outside the body) you will quickly get an idea of how acidic/basic your food chyme (digested food) is. It will almost be a pH of 4.0 or more. the paleo nurse explains this well why strong stomach acid is important to your health. http://thepaleonurse.com/the-truth-about-stomach-acid-why-low-stomach-acid-is-jeopardizing-your-health/ quoting the paleonurse. "In the infinite wisdom of the human body, the stomach was designed to produce the acid that is necessary for proper digestion of food.  When functioning properly, the parietal cells of the stomach secrete hydrochloric acid that bring the stomach pH to a range of approximately 1.5 to 3.0" if it is a higher pH than this you can benefit from taking BetaineHCL to restore your stomach acid to more natural level. . . especially if you are not already taking PPI's since a proton pump inhibitor is lowering stomach acid. .. . by their very ability to cut off almost all stomach acid production. **** this is not medical advice I only know taking powdered stomach acid (BetaineHCL capsules)  helped me. I was not barfing my meals though. . . so your experience my be different. Maybe Ennis_tx will comment because he has some of the same symptom's/issues. But if I was puking I think I would be curios to know what my pH really is? And not Assume? anything at this point. If you test your stomach pH with easy to buy pH strips you will know whether it really is high pH (low stomach acid or a little stomach acid as your describe it) or low pH (really high stomach aid) that is causing the issue's. Once you know for sure you  will know who to go about correcting it. Supplementing with BetaineHCL is fairly harmless . . .unless you have an ulcer. And you will/would probably know it instantly if you take some BetaineHCL and it feels like someone is putting out a cigarette in the middle of your stomach.  It is acid burning your sore/ulcer. thankfully eating protein/food quickly neutralizes/raises stomach acid especially when taken with a glass of water. staying hydrated with a meal also helps improve digestion so be sure to take some water/drink like a tea or juice etc. for example if you want to the BetaineHCL to work properly. Milk has the opposite effect.  If you feel a burning milk can coat the lining of your stomach helping to erase/ease the effect of strong acid. And why people who eat hot **** five alarm peppers aka known as Hot heads keep milk close by if they need to dampen the fire in their stomachs from eating too many peppers. . . . and drinking water can aggravate this practice of eating the hottest peppers you can find. I hope this is helpful. I have rambled on long enough. be sure to read the sickboy user in the medhelp thread of how he helped his GERD/bile reflux. here is medhelp link for easy reference included in the "silent reflux" thread if you haven't read it yet. https://www.medhelp.org/posts/Gastroenterology/UNCONTROLLABLE-BILE-REFLUX-PLEASE-HELP/show/738242?page=1 he was suffering for 5 years and got better so don't lose hope. It can seem very daunting but people on this board do get better. we have used different methods but people do get better. again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me. good luck on your continued journey but it is not a long way back if you know the way. 2 Corinthians (KJV) 1:3,4 3) “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4) who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them (sufferer still suffering)   which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” posterboy by the grace of God,    
    • LOL sorry but really? You trust that, dominos, papa johns, and pizza hut ALL say they can not 100% guarantee their gluten-free pizza are celiac safe. THEY USE the same prep areas, same ingredient bins, same ovens and in many cases the same cutters and spoons used to spread the sauces and cut the pizza. I doubt the employees would even bother changing gloves between pizzas during rush.   Seriously if you want a gluten free pizza....gut a premade one in the freezer section from UDI, Dayia, RealGoodPizza or a crust from cappellos or califlower foods and make your own....Here please save yourself here is a list. BTW Pizza hut uses UDI crust and just tops them with their sauce etc....CCing in most cases and delivering them. Also the REAL good pizza will mail you cases of their pizzas fully made. Califlour foods and capello will mail you empty crust by the case. SO you can order them if  local stores do not carry them.

    • My MRI has been clear. They did a spinal tap back in May which was also good.  MS ruled out many times. All my symptoms match Gluten Ataxia, but I don't know for sure since I don't have a dx. However, I DO have Hashimotos so at least going Gluten Free is necessary for that. I go to my Rheumatologist on Jan. 30th, 2018. Can a Rheumatologist determine Gluten Ataxia? If so how long should I be back on Gluten for testing?  Thanks for the heads up on Free and Clear products. I will look into that.
