Today I had a frozen Udi's pizza.  They are on sale at Target for $5 (not sure how long) and if you use their cartwheel app, you get 5% off.  Their app works like a scannable coupon on your phone, no gimmicks like some of those other coupon apps you see on the crazy couponer blogs.  They basically have 5%off most Udis items right now, and my Target at least has a lot of their new frozen items now.  Their big lasagna with meat sauce is really good.  Totally worth the $9.99 since lasagna can cost a lot to make.

 

They also have 20% off Canyon Bakehouse bread with the cartwheel app until Feb 14th, for my fellow fans of that brand.  Good time to stock up, have them get you frozen ones from the back.

 

Last night was taco night.  I have been a little sick so trying to make easy stuff.  My husband ate at schlotzkys today with his coworkers, they all ordered personal pizzas and were wondering why they cost so much.  Turns out they were all charged $2 to have gluten-free crust, which they definitely didn't request.  My husband said he politely corrected his coworkers when they went "oh well I guess we ate healthy then"... LOL he makes me so proud :)  He said it was good so I wonder which one they are using, didn't see on the website.  Highly doubt that place can make it safely gluten-free.

This week, we had a yummy beef, Ital sausage, potato and bell pepper dish.  I put too much broth in it so it was more like stew.  Very yummy.  Added a bit of red wine and some pepper flakes.

 

Tonight nachos and refried bean dip.

I have just enjoyed salmon risotto...made real easy! I cooked the salmon (for two people) in a wok with a little olive oil, I then  added some garlic, salt and pepper, a handful of frozen peas and a little water, I put the lid on and let it cook slowly for 10 minutes, I drained the water, and added some dry pre cooked rice I had in the fridge..I served it with a squirt of lemon juice and it was so good, but more importantly  quick!

Right??  I would LOVE to host you! haha It would be great to host people that were able to feel 100% safe about eating at my home simply because my kitchen is gluten free on top of a tasty gluten-free meal.  I keep that recipe blog here because I hope that newly Dx'ed people will be able to have a look/see and feel a bit better because a person CAN MAKE ANY GASTRONOMIC DELIGHT they wish witIh a few gluten-free (or grain free or dairy free..whatever) tweaks.  Dinner parties though.. appetizers, fancy drinks, a main course, and a dessert PLUS haha I like the decorating and choosing music and planning games.  Yep I like the whole shebang.  I like friends coming early to help wiht the prep too because even that is fun. and THEMES??? gahhh  I love it! :D mouahahha  aww... I need some friends. :(

 

 

Tonight I have passed the local pizzeria menu out and told everyone to choose their pizza.  I will make it to specification for them in my own kitchen.  I bought pizza boxes from the pizza place when I picked up the menu. haha :D  When the SO gets home from work tonight we will have family movie night too. Its finally MY TURN to choose.  I think we are going to watch The Messenger.

Ah this evening I will be making a Stuffed Pepper Soup.  Before I get started on it, I will be making copy cat Campbells Tomato Soup , and THEN we will get busy! I just finished a Salted Caramel Fudge that is chilling in the fridge. I even did dishes today as the others were complaining that I "only" cook.  Someone needs to have a talk with them! LOL

They definitely need to do the dishes considering the gourmet masterpieces you are feeding them... ROFL!!! 

 

Yesterday was a very fatigued lupus day, but I made it through the grocery store with my husband, and we made nachos when we got home with some meat I had frozen that was already cooked.  Then for dinner I was so tired I could barely stand, so my husband made me one of my favorite sick meals- green beans and mac n cheese.  I thought it was so sweet, I need to get him working for me in the kitchen more, lol

 

What am I cooking tonight?  Hm, I guess I will do pancakes or something.  I have been slacking off and napping instead of meal planning.

I will do the dishes if you cook for me! And I won't whine about it....not even once. :)

Edit- forgot to add what I am having - grilled chicken, oranges, red peppers, walnuts on spinach salad.

Mycasmom...Yum again! The fudge sounds so good. Chocolate is my favorite food group so I'm partial to that.

Laura...I'm sorry to hear of the lupus struggle but it so sweet to hear how your hubby loves you. One of my cousins has lupus and it is such a hard disease.

I made spaghetti and meatballs tonight with garlic bread and green beans. Very enjoyable comfort food.

I ran out of dish soap with a sink full of dishes, so I went by walmart late this evening, not a place I usually go, so I decided to see if they have the new Pillsbury Funfetti gluten-free cake mix.  They had that and the cookie mix.

http://www.pillsburybaking.com/products/gluten-free/funfetti-cake-mix

 

I was pretty ecstatic to find this, as the original funfetti was a favorite as a kid.  I made the mix, the batter had to be spread, not poured.  But overalll turned out very good!

 

The pillsbury funfetti frosting is not labeled gluten-free like their regular frostings, so I used a duncan hines one- vanilla with sprinkles.  The ingredients on the Pillsbury looked okay with a quick glance, but there is probably a reason it isn't labeled as such, so I went with the sure thing. So, check walmart if you want to try it, but at mine it wasn't in the baking aisle, it was on one of their big displays in the middle of the main aisle where valentines baking stuff was.

I made some pulled pork in the crockpot so the last 2 days we have and sandwiches with Gates BBQ sauce on it and a vinegar (not evil mayo) based coleslaw.  Add a tart apple, like granny smith, to the coleslaw!  So good!

 

Tonight we are having chicken mole enchiladas with a rice with some veggies in it 0 carrot, peas, corn, peppers.

 

Tomorrow night we are making pizza I have a nice Italian seasoned crust and I am thinking ricotta, pancetta, red onions, with marinara and some moz, too.  A chocolate flourless cake with raspberry sauce and maybe a bit of vanilla ice cream or gelato

Oh that sounds YUMMY.  Pizza is the perfect food!  I did up some more Fried stuffed Gnocchi and Arribiatta for Valentines day. The fam REALLY devoured it. I like it too. :D

 

tonight though?  I am thinking we will go simple. Some fresh made butter (easier to make than you think and delish!) and I am going to give a large hunk of artisan style gluten-free bread with a salty crust a try and pull it out of the oven with some slices of apples and fresh cheeses. Some hot tea to go with.  Strange dinners at the Starry Night Stronghold (That's what I call wherever we are living,)

    • Hi duliano, Was he tested for celiac disease?  If he is positive for celiac disease, you'll need to spend some time learning about it.  Celiac disease tends to run in families, so you and your spouse should also be tested if it is celiac. There is another condition called NCGS which some people have.  Those people also get sick from eating wheat, rye, and barley, but they don't have the gut damage that celiac's get. Recovery from celiac disease damage can take 18 months or more.  It is not a fast process for most of us.  The antibodies that cause the damage slowly reduce in number over time.  Possibly weeks to months.  Even a small crumb of wheat, rye or barley can cause the antibodies to flare up again.  Then the damage starts again and it's back to recovery. It sounds like you are giving him a good diet.  Meat, veggies, nuts, and eggs are good for the first 6 months.  After that people find they can sometimes add dairy milk back into their diet.  You need to avoid cross contamination from shared foods like mayo or peanut butter or even a  shared toaster.   Think of gluten like a tiny germ that you can't see but it can be there.  It's really helpful to not have any gluten in the house, if that is possible.  Also you have to watch out for other people giving him treats that have gluten. Welcome to the forum duliano!
    • My RA blood test was negative and my dsDNA was negative too.  I think that the dsDNA is the lupus test.  I think.  I haven't been referred to a rheumatologist.   
    • Some people will always test negative on the blood test, odd and rare but it happens. You also have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the antibodies to show up for it in the test for at least 12 weeks. You can follow up with a endoscope and biopsy, if your having gut issues this might be a great idea to rule out other issues. I might also suggest a colonoscopy to rule out Ulcerative Colitis or other digestive issues there. Other thoughts you could have SIBO or NCGS. NCGS  can not be diagnosed...heck I was writing up a bit of a summary page for someone else about it might as well make use of the partially filled out notepad here.  Forgive any typos or misinformation still working it out for various sources. " 1. Acne, Flushed Skin, or Rashes
      Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity can manifest itself as a chronic skin condition such as a rash, acne, or red/flushedcheeks, but these conditions could also be hormonal. On the other hand Celiac disease also has Dermatitis herpetiformic or DH, which is characterized by rashes and chronically itchy, elbows, knees, buttons, and back. 2. Distended Stomach or Bloating
      A distended or bloated stomach applies especially after gluten consumption and is a fairly clear sign of gluten sensitivity. A distended stomach is also characteristic of malnutrition as well of celiac disease. 3. Diarrhea, Gas, or Constipation
      These three  symptoms can simultaneously occur after eating gluten and may be a sign of intolerance because,especially the former, is a way for the body to expel harmful allergens or other substances. Often, diarrhea(frequent loose or liquid stools) occurs with gas, resulting in a “feeling of a full or tight abdomen” as put by the NFCA. Constipation, essentially the antithesis of diarrhea, is also a symptom of non-celiac gluten sensitivity and is characterized by infrequent, hard, painful bowel movements from lack of physical activity or poor diet,namely a diet high in refined carbs rich in gluten. This can be made worse if one has a magnesium deficiency, does not get though hard fiber, or drink enough water. All of which can be made worse by the feeling of bloat/gas making one feel too full to need to drink or eat high fiber foods. 4. Brain Fog or Migraines
      Brain fog is a major characteristic of non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Chronic or debilitating migraines goes hand in hand with the idea of brain fog and results in depression or irritability. These again can be made worse by deficiencies, like B-vitamins. 5. Joint Pain or Numbness in Extremities
      Tingling, pain, or numbness in the joints or extremities is abnormal and should be a clear sign of a health problem like gluten intolerance or celiac disease. Colloquially, this tingling is described as “pins and needles” or a limbbeing “asleep.” If this happens frequently for no apparent reason, it could be a sign of gluten intolerance. Again these can help be alleviated and be made worse by deficiencies in Magnesium, B-vitamins
      Total elimination of the gluten protein for an extended period of time, say two weeks or a month, is the only true way to identify if these symptoms are linked to gluten intolerance, and even then, it would not be certain. If the protein is eliminated and any of the above symptoms dissipate, then it should be noted that gluten intolerance may be an issue, but be sure to consult a professional for solid proof."  
    • I have a friend who reacts to raw oranges, apples, and bananas. Funny thing is they are fine with cooked foods using them and pasturized orange juice. Some odd food allergy that gets broken down with heat. SIDE NOTE. I just reintroduced iceberg lettuce, and romaine after not having any in 4 months......I HAVE A NEW INTOLERANCE. even just plain iceberg organic, pieces from the core without chemicals make me horrible sick and vomiting....they used to be fine....WTF?! Oh well spinach is fine and the canned stuff is cheaper and more nutrient dense....but really WTF?! Yeah I tried 2 brands and even the organic one.
    • I had to research today from last night's reaction. Never thought oj would be  a problem. I see from past posts some have had concerns about orange juice . I've joined the club. Myself and DS are reacting to something in pure premium. Just wanted to share info I found in case one day someone else has this experience. While I can't say it is gluten cc we also are corn and milk free, just know we are having a reaction and we just opened a new pure premium that we both drank from. It is possible I'm sensitive to chemicals the flavors / scent added after processing possible culprit. Sad as oj has the vitamin c good for immune system. Which is disheartening if DS is as sensitive as mom didn't appear to be until now. I'm not sure but felt the need to put this out there for those concerned with labeling and who are sensitive. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/07/29/100-percent-orange-juice-artificial_n_913395.html http://gizmodo.com/5825909/orange-juice-is-artificially-flavored-to-taste-like-oranges     Edit: one more link http://www.foodrenegade.com/secret-ingredient-your-orange-juice/ Maybe today is a coffee day?
