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.

YES! *makes arm in the air pumping motion*  I will post it on my blog later.

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,)

  Strange dinners at the Starry Night Stronghold (That's what I call wherever we are living,)

 

haha!  our house is 'Die Fledermaus Haus'  :)  or 'The House of Fifty Mustards' 

 

last night we had cod in parchment with orange, ginger & mushrooms (the recipe wanted s$#&akes, but evidently, if you are expecting snow in east tennessee, everybody needs s$#&akes???  lolz)  steamed sticky rice and romaine salad.  tonight is repeat, haha :D

 

i breaded & fried chicken breast cutlets the other night and they came out so moist & delicious.  i  mixed some mayo and a little milk with the egg, dipped chicken, dredge in breadcrumbs seasoned with italian seasoning and parmesan reggiano .  yummy yumz.  they were good as a standalone 'meat' but would also be good in a sandwich or chicken parm :)  as it were, we ate them with mashed 'taters & sauteed zucchini

    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
    • The University of Chicago recommends re-testing 3 to six months after going gluten free and then annually.  Most GIs wisely wait because although you can theoretically heal that fast, it takes TIME to master the gluten free diet.  It can take up to a year or longer for antibodies to come down.  As someone who has more than one autoimmune issue like myself (and only a DGP IgA that has ever been elevated), I think that impacts healing  and how quickly antibodies come down.   My recent endoscopy (5 years post diagnosis) revealed a healed small intestine, yet my DGP IgA was still at 80 (which was over 200 last April when I was somehow exposed to gluten).   Hang in there!  Wait six more months to get retested.  Look for other signs of healing (like anemia resolving, improve gut issues).  
    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
