I made sublime chipotle and cascabel orange carnitas with corn tortillas. I have a thing for pork! Alas...tummy troubles prevented me from enjoying them tonight but at least my husband did...perhaps tomorrow.

Grilled indian spiced minced lamb kabobs with saffron rice and lettuce tonight. There is no egg or binder in the recipe I used, so they didn't end up being kabobs (slid right off the stick and ended up being burgers or logs).

Last night: Vietnamese shrimp with rice noodles, shredded carrots and lettuce with two dressings (both Vietnamese).

We're traveling the world without all the airfare and hassle, it's all good.

where do you find saffron at? I've never been able to find it (but then again, I've only ever looked in the spice section of regular grocery stores). Someone gave me some once, so I know what it looks like, and I know I liked it when I used it. :)

Badia spices are available where I live. They usually have a separate section in the supermarket, sometimes in the Latin section, sometimes in the spice section. I paid about $5.00 for a little plastic snap shut container that has lasted over a year. I think Badia usually has their display arranged alphabetically.

Admittedly it was awesome. As a perfectionist, I am very critical of my own cooking and am often not quite satisfied. However, this was pretty darned good.

So, who hires the lawyer - you or I?? :lol:

Good job! You can make extra rice an freeze it in a baggie with your name on it. Then pop it out when you need some. I have found it stays good in the freezer for 3 months. Sometimes I cook little bits of carrot with the rice for a little added nutrition.

I don't know if you have these stores where you live, but in IL we have what's called Fresh Pick Market stores. They are a grocery store, but have mainly fruit and veggies and not much "shelf" foods. As a result they have a lot of ethic foods in the line of spices and stuff. Just an idea...hope you find it!

Ensure it is not safflower you are getting - it looks similar to saffron but is a very poor imitation (i.e. it would definitely turn a person off if s/he thought it was saffron). The good saffron from Iran and Spain is very expensive (about $40-$50 for about 1 tbsp) but as mentioned the grocery store stuff is cheaper (but sufficient and sort of similar to the real thing!). Great in Risotto Milanese and paella! :)

To get the most flavour from your saffron make sure to steep it in some hot or warm liquid rather than just throwing it into a dish. The threads are from a specific species of crocus that only blooms a short time each year and are hand picked (each crocus only has a few) - that is why the authentic thing is so darned expensive.

Good luck finding some - I hope you do!

Thanks for the tip!!! I have a rice steamer that cooks my rice in the microwave in 6 minutes to perfection but I will keep that in mind for trips bc as sad as it is I can't take all my cooking goodies with me

We had left-over home-made chili. We just introduced white beans and tomatoes after about 6 months with no nightshades or legumes, so it has been pretty exciting! :)

    • Tell me about it, when you can not eat meats, and a bunch of other things, it becomes really quite annoying getting the optimal fat/protein ratios. The amount of nuts, seeds, and vegan protein powders I go through is crazy. Diet cost me over $600 a month for a single male at 125-128lbs and 5' 11"
    • Hi Ennis_TX I just looked around that site and already saw several things I want to try. I really want to try hemp seeds. I'm gonna try ordering a few things on there. I really need something to snack on and add to salads and stuff. Thanks so much.
    • I'm a gluten-free vegetarian. That being said I was taking prednisone for 2 months (unrelated to my celiac) and got a diet a friend was doing and tried it to lose the 10 lbs I gained from the steroid.  I ate eggs for breakfast, hard boiled or an omelet. I had a salad with Beyond Meat Chicken (fake) for lunch and soup I made with some veggies and tofu for dinner.  My brain fog was quite a bit less and I had crazy amounts of energy. Being a vegetarian I just can't eat that way all the time.  Susan
    • https://www.mygerbs.com/   Has a bunch of seeds, dried fruit, etc. that are gluten-free and free of all major allergens. I love the deep nutty crunch of the hemp seeds, and the pumpkin seeds. I eat them shell on whole, plenty of fiber, they also sell shelled versions of them and even sunflower, chia, and flax.
    • Welcome to the board. It is too bad your 'doctor' didn't test you for celiac before telling you to go gluten free.  Since he was neglectful in that respect chances are he didn't tell you all you need to do to keep yourself safe IF you have celiac.  Since you have children and celiac is hereditary you should consider going back to eating gluten and getting tested.  Chances are good that you are not as gluten free as you think you may be and that would be what causes you to still have periodic issues.  That is especially the case if you have other folks in your home that are still eating gluten.  It was very irresponsible of your doctor to simply tell you to go gluten free without testing and giving you the full info after diagnosis to keep you safe.  He virtually guarenteed that you will still have periodic issues so he could charge you for an 'allergy' test . As other posters mentioned the results of that allergy testing are very strange and IMHO should be ignored for now.  Please consider going back on gluten, a couple slices of bread a day should be enough, and get tested by a real MD in a couple months. Meanwhile do read the Newbie 101 thread so that you will know what you need to do to keep yourself safe if those tests come back positive. Also be very cautious with any herbals or supplements that 'doctor' may have prescribed.
