Tonight I made Tandoori Chicken with roasted curry cauliflower.  Was pretty good.  Now my house will smell like curry for a few days and when I walk inside after being out I will get hungry, lol.

Well, it is the second day of rain sprinkles here in California.   It finally feels like Fall even though I am still wearing shorts and flip flops!B)  I am happy not to be running the air conditioner.   Alas, it will not last. :angry: Temperatures to hit 100 degrees by the weekend. 

I am making chili and salad for tonight's dinner to celebrate the rain and the hint of cool weather!

Chicken wings with Turmeric turned out great. It is super easy to make and super delicious and healthy (I think, depending on how many wings you eat :D). I wanted to try something I have not made before but I did not want to spend much time preparing it. So, I took some chicken wings, put some olive oil, turmeric, and salt and mixed it all and baked it in the oven. I did flip them when I saw that they got nice and crunchy on top, so I wanted to make sure it was like that on both sides.

I grilled chicken wings for lunch today too and served it with a nice green salad.  

The rest of the day was devoted to my FIL's birthday party.  Served Tri-Tip and sausages, baked beans, green salad, jello, and potato salad.  Then best was the lemon pound cake, pumpkin raisin cupcakes, and cheesecake.  No one could tell that they were gluten-free!  I am tired from all that cooking and baking!

Hi Cycling lady, everything sounds absolutely delicious. You should open a bakery! It is impressive how many desserts you had made. I used to bake a lot prior to diagnosis, so I have to get back to it.  I got popsicle molds so I look forward to making some :D.

I have been snacking on cheese imported from England (fancy!) that contains cranberries. Yum!  Beats eating peanut butter off the spoon!  :P  I have never had Chestnuts, but they sound good.

They also make that cheese with blueberries!  Sooooooo yummy.  But hard to find.  Must be a very limited supply as our store is always trying to get it and it's often unavailable.

 

 

tonight we are grilling some steaks and veggie kabobs ( red onion, red pepper, potatoes and pineapple marinated in teriyaki and some of the pineapple juice)

Blueberries in cheese?  I'm going to look for it in our stores (West Coast).  

Tonight is Tri-Tip steak (West Coast cut) with mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus.  Too tired to pull a salad together.  We had an all-day marching band tournament.

Kareng, that sounds absolutely delicious. How do you make coconut rice? 

I roasted lamb chops and cooked white rice. These days I crave red meat. :D

I used this recipe.  I used frozen peas instead of canned.  I used jalapenos for the marinade and salsa and it wasn't hot.  But a great flavor.

The rice is sort of mushy.  its delicious, that's just how it is supposed to be.  It would be good with fruit in it - canned crushed pineapple or raisins and be breakfast.

    • Eeh bah gum, ta JMG!  I find it fascinating that it has almost the same (or is it the same) colour label as Lea and Perrins?  I wonder which came first? Hopefully they have moved from the building in the photo as they are selling so many bottles that they need bigger premises.    Funny though - I thought you'd sent me a picture of a pub when I first saw it.  Bet it was a pub before they took it over!  
    • I would just generally eat healthy. Avoid milk and fructose for a while as they can be difficult to digest before your intestine heals.  Glutamine powder is a protein that is available in grocery stores. Glutamine is the main fuel for the cells that line the intestine, and it may help them grow back faster.  I don't know for sure about alchohol but I would avoid it. Gluten I think is soluble in high concentration alcohol. This may cause a more intense immune response. 
    • http://hypothyroidmom.com/10-nutrient-deficiencies-every-thyroid-patient-should-have-checked/ Here's an article that explains all the nutrients the thyroid needs to function properly and the consequences to the thyroid if there's a deficiency.   Some thyroid problems will correct themselves if existing nutritional deficiencies are corrected.   Check with your doctor to see if any nutritional deficiencies need to be addressed. Hope this helps.  
    • Thanks guys! Ill defintley ask about the full thyroid panel. I did antibodies for those thyroid ones a year ago do i have to get that again.  Thanks Ennis for those recommandations I will resort back to my food diary!
    • To add to the good advice above. I think your husband has to take it on himself to communicate with his parents that this is a serious, medically diagnosed condition that their grandson has to live with for the rest of his life. He needs them to back you up, be supportive etc. On no account should you be cast as the fussy daughter-in-law who has to have her crazy notions indulged - they need to know that their son is 100% on board with this and that the pair of you are united. Just one other point. It's very difficult for most people to conceptualise celiac, they tend to think of it as they would a problem with spicy food say. Something that you should probably avoid but a little bit now and then won't hurt. So without getting scientific, it would be good if your husband could get that key point across. That a little is just about as bad as a lot when the body's immune system is involved.  That there can't be any compromises or cheating. Even the suggestion will be harmful for your son in adjusting. Also that you understand that their house cannot be a gluten-free environment and you don't expect them to change their lives whilst your there - but that you need to take reasonable precautions to keep your son safe.  I think as long as people understand there's reasons for all the precautions etc its easier for them to accept. They may not agree with it or understand it but they can at least understand your thought process.  Finally, get as much of this communicating done in advance so you, your husband and your son can just enjoy himself without constant references to his diet.  Hope it goes well!
