Tonight I am cooking for family to celebrate my dad's birthday and I will be making a steak on the grill, yellow rice, asparagus tomato and basil salad with a lemon mustard dressing and possibly cucumber mango salad (the salads were found on Elana's Pantry website so I am hoping they turn out ok).

That sounds wonderful!

I'm making stir-fried beef and broccoli and mashed poatoes. They don't go together at all but I'm trying to use up the food that is left in my freezer and pantry in preparation for a move.

Meatloaf made with smashed Rice Chex, baked sweet potatoes, and green beans with garlic and mushrooms.

I'll be making stuffed peppers for tomorrow night's supper at the same time since I'll have the oven going.

I'll just have to heat them up, saute some summer squash and make a salad. ; )

Do you have a recipe for your watermelon granita?

Sure! Note that I double the amount of lime juice (I love tart flavours) OR use some grapefruit juice and also add a few fresh mint or basil leaves to the simple syrup while it is cooking).

I just love granitas. They are so terribly easy to make! Strawberry is one of my favourites.

I thought it might be fun if we had a thread where we shared what we're cooking up for dinner:) I am not an experienced cook so coming up with gluten free menus for me and my boyfriend feels like a challenge. It's also weird since I only started eating meat since my diagnosis, so I have 0 experience preparing meat.

Tonight I'm going to try that Tinkyada spiral pasta with some gluten-free pasta sauce and gluten-free meatballs I got from TJ's.

Meatloaf, baked potato with home made salsa, and a vegetable to be named at dinnertime.

Change of plans. We WERE going to have something fabulous but it is too hot to sear/roast duck breast. So, we're grilling burgers to go with toasted Udi's buns. We'll have homemade mustard, ketchup, garlic aioli and nectarine caramelized onion jam I made last year to go with them. Mustard coleslaw. Watermelon granita again!

If you don't mind me asking, how do you make your homemade mustard? I found a recipe that uses ground mustard seeds, apple cider vinegar, light brown sugar and honey, but it just does not have the right flavor although it is not bad.

I make quite a large variety of flavours - will look some up and post. The one you describe is pretty typical but can be quite sharp. Did you allow it to sit for the flavours to mellow a bit? Do you like grainy mustards or smooth?

I let it sit for about 3 hours, the recipe had said just an hour. I like both types of mustard, but I prefer grainy.

I prefer grainy, too. Many recipes actually recommend sitting in the pantry for a couple of months to mellow prior to putting it in the fridge but some don't.

This is one of my favourites - I keep it nice and chunky.

Last night we had goat curry. (Not curried goat, if you know what I mean.)

Tonight we had grilled chicken marinated in pesto and roasted potatos. And sweet cheeries dipped in chocolate sauce. That was too good to be true!

(Found the recipe on Allrecipes.) It was even good on watermelon.

Yea. Had a little chocolate fest down here today. The goat got me going.

Is your pesto recipe dairy free? If so, I'd love to have it.

Traditional pesto contains extra virgin olive oil, a touch of coarse salt, garlic, basil, pinenuts and Parmesan BUT you can make it without the cheese. I make many versions including sundried tomato, kale, arugula, mint, sage, rosemary...you can also substitute other nuts such as toasted walnuts for the pine nuts. I've taught an entire cooking class on pesto alone! :)

I use a mini food processor. For this batch, I used about 1 1/2 cups fresh basil, 2 cloves garlic, 1/4 cup pistachios,(can use any nuts, or no nuts), approximately 1/8 cup good olive oil, sea salt. You don't need pepper because the basil is so peppery. Grind it until it is pesto consistency. I also like this made with parsley half and half or all out parsley. Love it with macadamia nuts too (cut back on the olive oil) or tree nuts if you can tolerate them.

You kind of miss the cheese because it isn't as rich, but it is still very flavorful and great on grilled foods or used as a rub/marinade. :)

It is really easy to grow basil! I abuse my poor plants and they keep producing.

Thanks! I have a nice basil plant but we are starting to get some weird spots on all of our herbs and I have no clue what to do about it.

Thank you so much. They sound delicious and I think I will be trying the first one when it comes time to make mustard later this week.

Tonight we are having sandwiches, but without the bread. I am grilling chicken breasts on the George Foreman and after cooking will slice them in half and fill them with homemade pesto, turkey bacon and tomatoes.

I'm making chicken scampi and a salad tonight. I got some Tinkyada pasta- I'm excited to try it and I hope it tastes good as it seems to be pretty readily available and it comes in a ton of shapes.

What kind of wierd spots? What do they look like?

I know it's hot everywhere now, I live in the deep south and a lot of people don't grow herbs in the summer because they don't thrive. But I find if I harvest them regularly and water daily they do well. I don't fertilize or spray them, but do feed them diluted coffee and very ocassionally coffee grounds.

The only spots I've had were from slugs. Sprinkling sea salt around the base of the plant can help if it's slugs.

    • I would suggest a certified gluten free soy sauce, just to be safe.  Test that and if you react, you'll be able to rule out a gluten reaction from La Choy.  
    • I second cycling lady here, you should not go gluten free unless your doctor confirms you have celiac disease via the blood test and a biopsy. You need to be eating gluten for the testing to be accurate so a 30 day trial based on the gene is a REALLY bad idea, getting back on gluten for the testing is a nightmare once out of your system. Also going gluten free, what are you eating? If your eating just a bunch of gluten-free foods that are processed like the pre made breads, foods etc. your on the wrong path. Those are normally non enriched and more like junk food/comfort food. You need to eat a whole foods diet, of various greens, meats, nuts, seeds, (fruit if you can have it and sweet potatoes). etc. Doing this will boost your healing and you and introduce some of those processed foods later on sometimes. If you have celiac disease then your intestines are probably damaged and you will need to supplement some nutrients, we all have common ones like magnesium, iron, b-vitamins, folate, potassium, D etc. and you should talk to a good doctor about what your missing. The whole out of it things sounds like b-vitamins to me. Another point is going gluten free, you have to be careful for CC if your a celiac, after removing gluten re exposure to gluten makes your symptoms MUCH worse, and the tend to change and evolve in addition. Be sure to check the Newbie 101, your pretty much have to replace most of your cookware, condiments, etc. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/  
    • Do you still consume gluten and/or dairy? If so, I highly recommend that you eliminate both entirely. That includes anything with the ingredients; whey powder, casein, "lactose free" can be misleading as well. I also recommend taking a good probiotic regularly.  http://mentalhealthdaily.com/2016/03/01/10-best-probiotics-for-depression-anxiety-gut-brain-axis-modification/  I use Garden of Life brand for Mood. I buy it in the refrigerated section at Whole Foods. I also recommend double doses of B vitamin for a stint. However, you should have a full work up done by a neurologist, if you haven't already. Assuming everything comes  back negative then I highly recommend trying these few things.  I hope you can find answers and start feeling healthy again.
    • I suggest researching Mast Cell Activation Syndrome or EOE.   http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/eosinophilic-esophagitis/basics/definition/con-20035681  Also, Benadryl crosses the blood brain barrier and there have been long-term complications.  Talk to your doctor about using  another antihistamine.  If your reactions have been anaphylactic, you should have an epi pen.  I hope you feel better soon!  
    • Welcome!   Yikes, first I would suggest that you consider a new doctor.  Your doctor gave you some pretty bad advice biased on your posting.   The celiac gene is common.  Some 30% or more of the population carries the genes that could develop into celiac disease.  Are you sure it was not an antibodies test?  Telling you to go gluten free for a 30 day trial is another huge error.  Often they takes months to years for a celiac to recover.  A celiac is diagosed by blood tests and small intestinal biopsies obtained via an endoscopy.  There are times when an endoscopy is skipped because if financial reasons, too ill or long wait times.   Learn more at the University of Chicago's celiac website which is very informative and well-recognized.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
