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! :)

    • With a positive EMA and a positive tTg, that is a slam dunk for Celiac Disease.  If you read about testing results, the odds are 99% that you have it. You also had very high numbers on your testing so that adds to the diagnosis.  At this point, the biopsy, if you have it done, is to check for the amount of damage, and is not needed for a diagnosis. I declined the biopsy as I was very sick at diagnosis.  The doctor who ran my blood panel said there was no doubt I had it due to the high numbers on my blood work.  I have been gluten-free for 12 years and every single doctor I have ever seen since then, who whined about me not having the biopsy, shut up about it once they saw my initial blood work.  The difference in my health since going gluten free was nothing short of amazing. I am sure you will have the same results, once you go gluten free.
    • Bit of progress end product still contains gluten....just less of it.....I would still play it safer and just eat non wheat containing foods, and stick to my grain free diet. I honestly think they are going about this wrong, instead of altering the genes of the food that we react to....why not fix us....I money wise it seems like a bad idea for them and much more risky but they could try RNA editing where we would have to come in for constant treatments. But then again snowball chance in hell of having the that pass clinical trials.

      Second point, if you remove the gluten proteins that make the bread sticky and gummy texture...you remove the aspect that makes gluten a binder in bread and why wheat is used in the first place.....might as well just make wheat flavored artificial extract.
      Like buy the new gluten free wheat flour,,,,add a gum to to make it bind up and form up....same principle just that flavor is different. Seems round about.
    • You need to get copies of your medical records & especially of the celiac blood tests. Are you sure the correct tests were done? This is why you need to get those records. Here is the current FULL celiac serum panel: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA 
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG If you didn't get all those tests then you didn't get the full panel. Sometimes your insurance won't allow but a couple of them for screening purposes & you have to get a GI to order the entire panel. It's not unusual for people to test negative to the screening. A number of people on here only test positive to the DGP tests. 10% of celiacs are sero negative. Call the GI every single morning & ask if there has been a cancellation so you can get seen sooner. You sure have a shipload of symptoms that fit celiac! Add your grandma's celiac diagnosis & it's more than likely you are celiac too. Yes, keep eating gluten -- I know you don't want too - HUGS --- until all testing is done & then DO give a strict gluten free diet a try for at least 6 months.
    • Many theories have been fielded about autism. Some research careers have been made by investigating autism, while other careers have been seriously damaged when that research threatened some sacred cows of allopathic medicine. Yet despite all of this active research exploring the world of autism, we continue to experience exponential increases in rates at which autism is diagnosed. And debate continues unabated regarding the causes and appropriate treatments. Part of this increasing trend is, doubtless, because we have gotten better at recognizing the various manifestations of this debilitating condition. However, the evidence indicates that there is a dramatic increase in the absolute incidence of autism. View the full article
    • Don't go gluten free until you find out if they want you to get an endoscopy which they should schedule. Eat gluten every single day until the endoscopy is done.
