Creamy risotto with apples, pears, walnuts and gorgonzola! I've been testing out Udi's pizza crusts for a flatbread option... I brush them with extra virgin olive oil and garlic and roast them in the oven. They make pretty decent dippers.

Last night we had lovely grilled pork chops. Lundberg mixed rice, homemade apple sauce, salad and some really soft sugar cookies I rolled in cinnamon.  They are still nice and soft and moist today!

We have a request for stew when our oldest comes to visit for Christmas!  Almost done with the Christmas baking.  I want to do some turtles using Rolo candy and gluten-free pretzels.  I'm debating about making mini cheesecakes too.  I'm running out of time so we will see.  I have to get some real food bought and prepped too.  We have one family get together this weekend and hubs volunteered to bring a lot of food....that I have to prepare....plus figure out what I can bring for me to eat since there won't be any gluten-free options.

I made some gluten-free cinnamon rolls last night--they are baking in the oven right now.  They better be good because they were a pain in the rear to make :D.  Prime rib is on the menu for Christmas Dinner today.  That has been dry aging in the fridge for a couple days now.

My sister made beef wellington for Christmas, so they took off a chunk of the whole beef filet before cooking and saved it for me.  Cooked that on my countertop grill, and she made mac n cheese with a jarred alfredo and cheddar cheese, so I brought some of my gluten-free pasta over and we got some made up in a separate baking dish for me.  She put her floury gluten hands all over the stove, so I didn't eat the green beans that were being made, but I told her to not worry, because with a double portion of steak and a double portion of mac n cheese,  I am completely happy!  Then when I got home I ate a piece of the cake I made for my own personal dessert. :)

What a great Christmas I had! While my friend cooked a turkey that I COULD eat, I decided to bring a Christmas treat for myself - baked cod. I did some white rice with broccoli and crumbled up bacon in it (yum), and I also made deviled eggs. Instead of mayo and celery I made them with sour cream and bacon. They were really really good. I also brought some of the Udi's double chocolate muffins which I cut up into bite sized pieces. They were like brownies. AND...the peanut butter blossoms were delicious! I made them with the flourless recipe - 1 cup peanut butter, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, 1/4 teaspoon of salt. The recipe called for baking them for 7 minutes at 350 but they didn't look done so I went for 12 minutes. I think they could have cooked even longer because even after cooling they remained so soft they almost fell apart. But oh, they tasted so good. I have been off sugar but decided to cheat because it was Christmas. I ate three of them plus one "brownie".

 

And yes, this morning I had some of the arthritis pain, but it'll probably be gone again after a couple more days of no sugar. It was worth it.

yep, i do that as well :)  just don't over-do them or you will need dental work!  lolz  :)  also, those crusts are a good sub for pita bread (no pocket but you can heat them a little and fold them) when i make gyros.  you have to get inventive.   my favorite word in the kitchen is:  VOILA!  (second favorite:  presto!)  you get the idea   ^_^

 

last night was bruschetta crusted cod, roasted baby taters (evoo & rosemary) and roasted asparagus.  

 

tonight is 'oops forgot to take anything out of the freezer'  maybe i'll make mac & cheese if i get real ambitious.  i am craving *CRAVING* bbq ribs.  i'm going to try a recipe that you do in the oven, i think.  don't feel like fooling with the smoker in the winter time  <_<

I am in luck this week!  Visiting son and his dad are doing the cooking to give me a break.  Son is making his famous chili today (minus the added can of beer), and they have a turkey that's been brining. Tomorrow, brother in-law is coming with the nephews, and he's not happy about the chili.  He thought we should have the prime rib we had last year.  Sorry, but we ate the prime rib yesterday, and we aren't sharing the leftovers!   :rolleyes:

Egg salad made with sour cream instead of mayo and bacon instead of celery. Cheesey rice and broccoli. I heat the rice and broccoli, then mix the egg salad into it. Looks funny but tastes good. :)

I have been eating easy things lately, I am in a lupus flareup and it is totally kicking my butt.  Luckily my husband is very helpful doing anything physical, last weekend I wanted to make biscuits so he made up the dough for me as it is hard on my hands.  Gonna make pigs in a blanket with those little sausages and that biscuit dough this coming weekend.  (Recipe here)

 

Last night I made grilled chicken with veggies on the side, and earlier I was eating a lot of freezer meals I had made up for when I feel bad.  I freeze cooked taco meat, beef stew, random pasta type things because I know it will help me when I have my difficult health days.  Tonight I have some ham to use up, so I am just going to heat that up and have carrots and corn on the side, random things from the fridge and freezer.  Earlier this week, I tried out the Walmart brand gluten-free hamburger helper stuff, the cheesy macaroni and beef one, and it was really good.  When I first got married my husband asked me to make hamburger helper and I was shocked because I was never a fan, but I would make it sometimes and it is definitely something he likes.  The under $2 price was nice, too.  I will probably keep some in the pantry regularly and tell him to cook it when I am not feeling well.  I am slowly teaching him the ways of the kitchen so he can do my bidding  ^_^

    • I am very interested in this too. My daughter tested negative for celiac, but has terrible primarily neurological symptoms. Because she tested positive for SIBO at the time and was having some GI symptoms, I was told it was just a Fodmap issue.  I knew better and we have been gluten free for 2 years.  Fast forward to this February. She had a SIBO recurrence that I treated at home with diet and herbal antibiotics because I couldn't get the insurance referral. She was doing great. Then stupid me brought in gluten containing chick feed for the new baby chicks we got.   Feed dust everywhere. Total mess.  Really, no GI symptoms (she was SIBO free by then)...but the neurological symptoms! my daughter couldn't walk for three days. Burning down one leg, nerve pain in the foot. Also heaviness of limbs, headache and fatigue. Better after three days. But unfortunately she had a TINY gluten exposure at that three day mark and had another severe reaction: loss of balance, loss of feeling in her back and arms, couldn't see for a few seconds, and three days of hand numbness, fatigue, concentration problems.  Well, I actually contacted Dr. Hadjivassilou by email and he confirmed that the symptoms are consistent with gluten ataxia but any testing would require a gluten challenge. Even with these exposures, antibodies would not be high enough.  His suggestion was maintain vigilance gluten free.  I just saw my daughter's GI at U of C and she really only recognizes celiac disease and neurological complications of that. But my impression is that gluten ataxia is another branch in the autoimmune side of things (with celiac and DH being the other two).   At this point, I know a diagnosis is important. But I don't know how to get there. We homeschool right now so I can give her time to heal when she is accidentally glutened, I can keep my home safe for her (ugh, that I didn't think of the chicken feed!)  But at some point, she is going to be in college, needing to take exams, and totally incapacitated because of an exposure.  And doctors state side that are worth seeing?  Who is looking at gluten ataxia in the US?
    • Caro..............monitoring only the TSH to gauge thyroid function is what endo's do who don' t do a good job of managing thyroid disease.  They should do the full panel and check the actual thyroid hormone numbers.........T3 and T4. The importance of the TSH comes second to hormone levels. In order to track how severely the thyroid is under attack, you need to track antibody levels.......not the TSH. I did not stay with endocrinologists because I found they did not do a very good job and found much greater help and results with a functional medicine MD.  You should not have a goiter if your thyroid is functioning well and your TSH is "normal".  Maybe they should do a full panel? Going gluten free can have a profound affect for the better on thyroid function and that is something that is becoming more and more accepted today.  Ask most people with Celiac and thyroid disease and they will tell you that. My thyroid never functioned well or was under control under after I discovered I had Celiac and went gluten free.  It was the only way I got my antibody numbers back down close to normal and they were around 1200 when it was diagnosed with Celiac.  I was diagnosed with Hashi's long before the Celiac diagnosis.  I am not sure Vitamin D has anything to do with thyroid antibodies but who knows?  Maybe it does have an affect for the better. It is really hard to get Vitmain D levels up, depending on where you live. Mine are going up, slowly, even after 12 years gluten-free but I live in the Northeast in the US and we don't have sun levels like they do in the South.  I take 5,000 IU daily and that is a safe level to take, believe it or not.  I get no sun on my job so the large dose it is! Having Celiac Disease should not stop you from being able to travel, especially S. America. I travel, although I do agree that some countries might be very difficult to be gluten free in. You can be a foodie and travel with Celiac so no worries on that front. You may not be able to sample from someone else's plate, unless they are eating gluten-free too but I have had awesome experiences with food when traveling so you can too!
    • I don't know what you drank or where.... so here are a few thoughts. - sure, a dive bar might have dirty glasses and serve a cocktail in a beer glass?  But a nice reminder place, with a dishwasher, should be fine.  If it's a sketchy place, Stick to wine, then it's served in wine glasses that aren't used for beer or bottled ciders in the bottle.   - ciders on tap might, just a slight chance, have an issue.  Because of beer on tap, mixed up lines, etc. - you may have a problem with alcohol - you may have issues with The  high sugar content of the drink.  I know I have similar issues if I drink serveral ciders of extra sugary brands - are you positive it was a gluten-free drink?  Not this " redds Apple" pretending to be a cider - it's beer with apple flavor.  Or one of those " gluten removed " beers?  
    • Hi Stephanie, I'm also from the UK, I've found this site more helpful than anything we have!  As already mentioned above, in my experience it could depend on what and where you were drinking. Gluten free food and drink isn't always (not usually) 100% gluten free as you may know, maybe you have become more sensitive to even a trace of gluten that is probably in gluten free food/drink. Is it possible you have a problem with corn, particularly high fructose corn syrup that is in a lot of alcoholic drinks? This was a big problem for me and the only alcoholic drinks I can tolerate are William Chase vodka and gin. I contacted the company last year and all their drinks are 100% gluten and corn free, made the old fashioned way with no additives, so maybe try their products if you like the occasional drink and see how you get on. If you drink out, not many pubs sell their products but I know Wetherspoons do and smaller wine bars may too. l was never a spirit drinker but I must say their products are absolutely lovely! Very easy on a compromised gut too considering it's alcohol. I second the suggestion on seeing a natural health practitioner. I've recently started seeing a medical herbalist, as I've got nowhere with my now many food intolerances since going gluten free last year and I've noticed a difference in my health already. 
    • Sorry for the very late reply and thanks for the replies, I didn't get a notification of any. In case anyone else comes across this and has been wondering the same as I was, I did try a vegetable broth and I did react to it in the same way as if I'd eaten the vegetables.  As for the candida, I've been using coconut oil and am seeing a medical herbalist for this and leaky gut. It's only been a few weeks but I've noticed an improvement all round.
