I love crock pot pot roast.  No easier way to do it.  I did a similar theme last night and made pulled pork in the crock pot.  Just add a pork ribeye roast, a cup of your favorite bbq sauce, and cook for 6 hours on low, then shred and enjoy.

We seem to be cooking on a similar theme - I has beef stew in the crockpot! Soooooo yummy and easy. I got home and the dog and cat greeted me and then ran to the crockpot! Poor things..... Had to smell it cooking all afternoon.

Have a sour stomach today, so for dinner I just cooked up some chicken breasts, rice, and green beans.  Hope it sits and my tummy behaves!

Hub grilled some chicken a couple of days ago - so we used it to make a nice salad with a spicy peanut dressing!  Tonight we will use it for nachos.  Tomorrow night, we are making pizza!

Something got me yesterday.  I hardly ate so it was either the baked potato with their "buttery spread and sour cream", the Baked Lay's Potato Chips or the Greek Yogurt.  I glanced at labels but I didn't see anything.  I was flying and when I got into the airport everything but the news stands were closed.  UGGG.

last night was 'oysters bienville'

http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Oysters-Bienville-242928

wierd little combination of ingredients, but turned out yummy :)  also, found a REAL BUTCHER SHOP about 30 minutes away.  (i'm  sure they didn't think they were lost, lolz, but i finded them anyway)  and they have fish on friday and saturday, so got us some flounder and breaded & fried them using the hodgeson mills seasoned coating mix - came out yummy :)  mashed cauliflower and jankaroni and cheese (annie's) the husband didn't make a face at the macaroni, so i guess it was ok  ^_^ 

 

also, got some *real* kielbasa, smoked bratwursts, giant pork chops <wednesday i'm stuffing them)  a LONDON BROIL <ok, good ones are actually hard to find down here, so husband aka /Red Meat Man was very happy with that)  fresh chop meat, etc...  i was a little leery about the sausages, but the nice gentleman told me his son is ncgi and he eats them with no problems.  the hot dogs, he said, not so much  <_<   all their stuff is organic and locally sourced (in oak ridge, tennessee, where the nuclear bomb was invented, so i may end up glowing haha)  oh, and not overpriced compared to chain grocery stores.  

 

so much for trying to clean out the freezer for hunting season.... :o  :lol:

I'm on a bagel kick, so I've tried making a couple of batches of bagels, as well as buying some Udi's for comparison sake. My family likes the homemade better.

 

I just got a new rice cooker that has more features than my old one, so I'm enjoying playing with that.

last night our youngest rolled us a whole mess of sushi :)  spicy crab, smoked salmon <philadelphia type roll) shrimp tempura = yummmz!  she is the sushi chef at her grocery store, so she was all showing off her skills.  they had the nori (seaweed) wrapper, and she used rice spring roll wrappers and fresh spinach for mine.  i have not had sushi in four years and it's one of my favorite things, so it was a super awesome treat!!!

Here's a blog post for a homemade gluten free instant noodle soup. It uses miso. http://glutenfreeonashoestring.com/gluten-free-instant-noodle-cups/

 

Our lunch menu today was steamed brussel sprouts, white basmati rice, and vegan crab cakes. For dessert, the kids had fruit and cottage cheese and I had fruit and soy yogurt.

I hardly ever show up here but I had to tell you folks, the sauerbraten came out great! I cut the elk roast into chunks, about 3X3 inches. Seared it in a little sesame oil. Then I put it in my crock pot with a pint of vegetable broth, about a half cup of wine vinegar, a stick of butter, and two of the small packages of Pamela's ginger snaps. I put the cooker on low and cooked it for about three hours. Then I put it in the fridge. The next morning I cooked it on low for about two hours. Then back in the fridge. Two hours that evening, back to the fridge. Two hours the next morning, and I finished it off by cooking it for 5 hours last night. Even so, because I cooked it on low it is medium rare.

 

It wasn't as tender as it would be if I had used beef. Wth beef, it just falls apart into strings like pulled pork. With the elk it stayed in chunks but they were easy to cut and chew. The gravy is thick and rich and tasty. No need to thicken it at all. The ginger snaps did that. I just poured it over some of that Schar bread and ate it up. (I'll probably make some rice for tomorrow.)

 

The roast was about five or six pounds. I put a bunch of it in the freezer but kept out enough to eat for the rest of the week. YUM!

I just realized I said wine vinegar. I said that because I was thinking about the recipe I got which called for red wine, but since wine really hurts my stomach, I used RICE vinegar. 

 

Now that my diet has expanded and I actually get one day off a week, I might be showing up here more often. I guess with a little guidance even the helpless can learn to cook! :lol:

I totally understand not wanting gluten in the house!

 

It's such a relief to be going back to a gluten free house after my kid's gluten challenge was done. I got glutened multiple times and my stress level skyrocketed. My kids just don't understand the concept of not touching my gluten free food after they've touched gluten.

there's hope for you yet, barty!   :P  and my recipe totally uses red wine, so the red wine vinegar didn't sound odd at all  :D  mine is my mom's recipe and calls for the meat to marinade for, like, 5 days or something.  but i can cook everything the day before (except the pancakes) and just warm it to make the gravy.  w00t!   ;)

ikwym!  i have 5 or 6 (grandkids and neice/nephew) ages 5-12 that i watch after school, and they know they have to "wash their little handzies" but i'm still always watching out.  believe it or not, they are better than some adults ("EMBRACE the CONCEPT!!!")  i taught a fun health class and i gave stickers to a group of kids to explain about germs/hand washing.  the idea was to put a sticker everywhere they touched while playing a game of musical chairs.  when it was over, there were stickers everywhere, (representing germs).   :o   i have thought of explaining the gluten thing to *some* people (cough, cough, my brother in law, who i love dearly, but he is quick quick quick!  i'm like, sean!  stop!  you can't put that!....dah....... don't use that!...... dah...  <_<  he's all like 'why not' while he continues lolz)  my sister needs to make him practice at home hahaha  ^_^

Yes, it's tough with kids. My 2 year old is always trying to grab at my face and mouth and also we're a fairly affectionate family, so there was the issue of kissing sweet little gluteny faces. LOL!

 

So glad to be done with my daughter's gluten challenge!

I got some Betty Crocker pizza dough mix so I'm going to try that tonight.  I've been craving pizza but other than the frozen stuff, I don't have anywhere to get real pizza near me.

Pizza sounds so good. Really good pizza...New York style. Yum...nowhere to get good gluten free pizza around here either. Sigh.

For dinner...Pork Milanese, tossed salad, roasted acorn squash.

The Betty Crocker mix is no where near as sticky as the Glutino stuff I tried before!!  It's still a little sticky but responded better to oiled hands :D.  It's par-baking right now so we will see how it tastes in a while.

 

Ok--it was ok.  Just not like regular pizza crust. It was a bit dry and flaky but it is what it is with gluten-free flours I guess.

I have been slacking off not posting what I make here, I got a bad migraine from my last IVIG that is still not totally over 10 days later.    Lets see, recently I have been testing pies for thanksgiving.  Think I have the pie crust figured out, using the KAF recipe: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe (with lemon juice and no clearjel), and testing an apple pie right now... it is cooling and I am dying wanting to eat it!  Earlier this week I made lasagna and accidentally bought too many ingredients so I had a lot of leftovers, tired of lasagna now, ha.  Also made beef stew since it is getting colder.  Today we ate at a Mexican restaurant that understand gluten-free, it was so nice and I had no idea they could feed me this whole time.  I had gluten-free chips and salsa!  Dedicated fryers steal my heart.  I will probably make grilled chicken tomorrow and some veggies, to balance off all the fat I will be eating today.

    • Yeah , i will look into getting tested - like you say there is no harm in it . What I found very interesting is the part where you say "Later I got pains in the stomach, usually a dull ache although I could get a fierce stabbing pain there too. When I went gluten free those pains stopped. as did my chronic sciatic backache which Ive subsequently realised was probably due to inflamed tissues pressing on nerves." - I also started to get chronic sciatic nerve pain on the right side over a similar time period and am wondering if its the same kind of thing. If I could solve both those things it would be life changing for me
    • Hi ,  i was thinking that an intolerance and allergy were about the same thing really but sorry if im wrong. I know celiac is an autoimmune disease but was thinking that is different again, more serious and was erring on the side of my possible issue not being that but more of the intolerance type. Clearly im just guessing though and dont know about this stuff , hence the posting for advice, The problem with trying to get tested is that in bolivia there are very limited tests and doctors are unreliable so you have to rely on yourself to certain degree. I have heard of a test here and was planning on looking into that but it made sense to try to get some opinions and advice online first so Im in a better position to understand if any tests here are actually reliable enough. I dont think there is an issue with travel parasites etc as I have already taken the medications thats would kill them like a course of albendazol and praziquantel and that was after a 2 week anti parasite cleanse. That did feel like it got rid of anything and the only issue I have been left with is this pain as described.
    • Karen's point about parasites etc is a good one. They can cause a lot of symptoms similar to celiac /ncgs as you probably know.  At 11 I had my appendix removed following pain in the lower right side of my torso. On waking up the surgeon told me that it was actually ok, when I asked what caused the pain I think they said it was probably glandular - they didn't know. Later I got pains in the stomach, usually a dull ache although I could get a fierce stabbing pain there too. When I went gluten free those pains stopped. as did my chronic sciatic backache which Ive subsequently realised was probably due to inflammed tissues pressing on nerves. I would ask the Bolivian doctors if they can get any celiac blood testing done. The standard ttg may not be beyond their labs. can't hurt to ask? Give your diet my guess is you've had a lot of gluten for a long time. If its an issue for you expect a bumpy ride when removing it.  Best of luck!  
    • You can supplement if you want to.  IF you are low on iron or vitamin D - then some vitamins might be helpful.   The treatment for Celiac disease is a strict gluten free diet.  Some people need to cut out lactose for a few months, too.  The villi that are damaged in Celiac are the part that helps you digest lactose.  So, until they are healed, it might help to skip milk , cream, etc.     http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/are-there-vitamins-created-specifically-for-nutrient-deficiencies-in-celiac-patients-2/  
    • First - there is no such thing as a "gluten allergy".  Celiac is an autoimmune disease.  Just so you understand. It could be Celiac or a different gluten intolerance.  I am guessing you aren't going to get tested for Celiac disease.  IF it were me, I would be more concerned that maybe there is still some sort of infection or parasite from the places you have been.  I think I would try to get a good work-up for that first.
