I made Chili yesterday.  Shopped at a new grocery store that was mostly "organic" foods.  Chili was horrible!!  I have to go back to my not organic stuff :D.  The seasonings I bought were bland and just awful.  Good thing I made a small batch.  I doctored it up some after I tasted it so it's ok but just not the same.

 

Making roast beef and mashed potatoes today.

Well my apple pie turned out very well, I used mcintosh apples and this filling with the KAF gluten-free pie crust :http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/apple-pie-recipe.  Turned out excellent.  This week on the menu is breakfast for dinner, chicken stir fry with veggies, chicken broccoli alfredo, grilled chicken with roasted potatoes and green beans, and tomorrow will be an easy pizza night.  I love those freschetta pizzas.  Thursday I am going to do a pot roast in the slow cooker so we will have plenty of leftovers after that.  

 

Karen, the spices in that stew look really interesting, I bet it was good.  Gonna bookmark to try myself, I like cumin.

I was home for a few days and I don't know what my hubs did while I was gone but I spent more time in the bathroom than not.  I'm on the road again and my system has settled down.  When I'm back home I think I have to start all over and clean the kitchen and such again.  I am NOT happy.  I know he brought out our old toaster and I had to clean that up but I can't figure out why it was an ongoing problem after that.  Maybe some of the food I got at the Organic place was subject to CC and not labeled as such??  Frustrating!!

 

I did find a restaurant here that has good gluten-free practices and had some mac and cheese last night.  It was really good and gluten-free :D.

Putting a roast beef in the crock pot for later today.  I just put it in with carrots and then I make mashed potatoes and gravy when we eat it.  Leftovers make great BBQ shredded beef.

Sure!  I use this recipe, with double the amount of dumplings, some extra broth and extra veggies. http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/gluten-free-chicken-and-dumplings/dac34321-1834-4357-b5ee-2e273fabab53

It is basically drop biscuits, but has the same great taste so it is good to me.

Now that I have my stove working again I am going to make one of my famous bacon egg and cheese sandwiches. Schar bread untoasted, smeared with LOTS of butter. An over easy egg with melted extra sharp white cheddar. Two (unless I splurge and have three) strips of bacon cooked very crisp and crumbled on top of the melted cheese. Then I'll turn the sandwich upside down so I can peek at where the yolk is. I'll eat around the edges and be VERY careful when I get near the yolk. When I do get to the yolk I'll tip it up and take a tiny bite so the yolk doesn't explode. Rather gravity will assist it into my mouth.

 

You have to build these carefully. If you don't crumble the bacon, a bite might put pressure on the yolk and break it prematurely. And of course if you don't put the bacon on top of the melted cheese it'll fall out. If you toast the bread it'll be too hard and break the yolk. Lots of experimenting went into this complex recipe. :lol:  :lol:

 

But seriously, I am having so much fun with food now that I can eat so many "new" things.

I hope some of the newbies who are afraid they will never eat anything good again are reading this thread. What wonderful sounding meals! I confess, I do come here for inspiration when I am out of ideas. Y'all haven't let me down yet!

Steaks (and salmon for my meat allergic kid), roasted brussel sprouts with cranberries and baked potatoes. I found the brussel sprout recipe on Pinterest so I haven't tried it yet.

We had Thanksgiving yesterday at our house.  We had smoked turkey, crockpot scalloped potatoes, cheesy corn, corn bread, spinach with bacon, gingered carrots, cranberry - all gluten-free.  Then my sis brought gluteny pies for everyone.  this is OK because we clear the other food away and it is one less thing for me to make.  I decided I wanted Boozy Pudding - so that is what I made for me.

Ah yes, Thanksgiving prep time!  I should have tried to get an invite to Karens house... lol. Making easy stuff in the lead up to Thursday at my house this year... today I am eating an Aldi gluten-free frozen lasagna. Tomorrow starts prep, Wednesday is pie day and other make ahead stuff, and Thursday is the day we stuff ourselves. I am making turkey breast roasts instead of a whole turkey.  That and ham, green beans sauteed with mushrooms and shallots, sweet potato casserole, dressing/stuffing, chebe cheese rolls, gravy, and apple and pecan pie.  All gluten-free because I don't want to feed people gluten in my house.  Yum Yum!!!!

    • Hi Matt,  Thanks for taking the time to reply!  I completely agree haha.  Thanks for the links - I'll give them a read over!  I think it was a mixture of the first time travelling with being gluten-free and the added bonus of the language barrier, it made me dread meal times when usually food is the first thing I think about when travelling to new places! Again, I think the planning element was also a factor, not being able to walk past a nice bakery without walking in - why do most Berlin train stations have bakeries in everyone?!?! THE SMELL!!!  Haha, good excuse! Could have used that in the hotel restaurant (arrived late the first night) and the only avail dish was a dry chicken Caesar salad (literally 3 thin slices of chicken, 5 cherry tomatoes and a plate of lettuce).  I am I'll give the website a look over too - thank you! My app's with my consultant are every 6 months, basically was just sent away with no info/advice given and feeling the struggle now that reality has set in that this is for good!  Hope you are well! 
    • Gluten is a protein smaller then blood,bleach does not kill it as it is not a germ. I would replace scratched pans. baking dishes, tubaware, wooden utensils, colanders, etc. Throw out crumby condiment jars and any non gluten-free spices and condiments. Cast Iron can be saved and some metal utensils by putting in your oven self clean cycle, 500F will destroy the protein. I always tell people easy ways to get started on new cookware, nordicware microwave cook ware, omelette makers, steamers, rice cookers, grilling plates (do not forgot the splatter cover), This way you can have a cheap and easy meals, a new crockpot and use crockpot liners is great for soups, I suggested a combo rice cooker/crockpot/steamer as a great investment. OH if you want a nice clean safe prep area/counter/eating place mat, look up freezer paper/butcher paper. I did a post on where to get it in bulk awhile back. But laying it out is perfects, and makes clean up a breeze. Foil sheets in baking dishes works great for a extra precaution but if you have any with baked on stuff or scratched look at getting new ones. PS took me over  months to start feeling much better. Sometimes the improvement is minor and you have to think back to the worst you had. It does improve but normally big changes are after a year.

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.  
    • Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten.  Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc.  Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon.  Consider reading through the Newbie 101 thread under the “Coping section”.    You should see some minor improvement soon.  It does take time to heal.  Most  around here will say it takes a year!
