Was planning on burgers (I ended up buying beef today) but hubby had to work late and wasn't in the mood to grill. I didn't feel like cooking so I made some Tinkyada spaghetti and meat sauce with the beef.

Today I cooked stuffed peppers (turkey meat, veggies, brown rice, in a tomato-basil-and garlic sauce) with apple cider roasted vegetables on the side. It was delicious, and more important free of all eight allergens for my brother.

We're having grilled hog snapper thai style with basatmi rice and lemon drop martinis. Maybe a salad, maybe not. (Had salad for lunch, as usual.) So we're off to Thailand tonight. :D

I pulled a single serving of chili out of my freezer for dinner. So does that mean I took a trip to Mexico? :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm hopeless! That's what happens when you live alone...who needs a table? I put shredded cheddar cheese on it...does that count? And the chili is homemade! I'll try not to spill it on my keyboard. :P

You're too funny. When my husband is away our kitchen table stands alone. :P

Well, it's lunch as well as supper, but I'm proud of myself. I COOKED something and it came out really good! I roasted a large chicken breast (with both skin and bones), and when it was done I took the meat off the bones (after I stood at the counter and ate some of the cripay skin :) ). Then I added water to the drippings and cooked my brown rice in that water/drippings mixture. I added some parsley, and some rosemary. Now, I love the taste of rosemary, but I don't like chewing on those "twigs", so I put it in a tea ball and hung it over the side of the pan. It gave the rice a great flavor.

So then I mixed the shredded chicken with the rice and added some finely chopped broccoli. Not only does it taste good, but it's kind of pretty to look at too. That's the way I had it for lunch, but I've got a question: I have some gluten-free sour cream that I added some garlic to that I've been using as a vegetable dip. Would it be good if I added a touch of that to the mix? I'm thinking the sour cream part might be OK, but I don't know if the garlic will go good with the rosemary. What do you experienced cooks think?

Not sure what we're having tonight but tomorrow night it's my little girl's birthday so her choice is lentil rissoles with mashed potato, roast sweet potato, pumpkin and carrot and steame broccoli and zucchini so that's for tomorrow night. I think maybe a salad or something tonight, not sure yet.

Salmon Artichoke Patties (retro with a post-millenium twist)

Summer Smashed Red Potatoes

Peas (freezer, sadly, the garden was too wet to pick from)

Chocolate

First serious cooked meal in almost a week-- I've been furiously working on final edits on my cooking for one cookbook. It's almost there, but find it sort of ironic that I've been living on peanut butter and carrot sticks while finishing a cookbook on healthy eating for one.

I wish I knew...I had planned on having taco chicken, coat chicken with taco season and pan fry it then after it's mostly cook add salsa and let it soak up some flavor. We used to serve it with sour cream, but I'm not sure we will do that when we have it.

What do you experienced cooks think?

I think you sould go with your insticts. If you want to be cautious, just mix a bit of the chicken with the sour cream/garlic and taste it after if sits for a few hours or overnight.

If you want to stretch the chicken a bit farther, chop up grapes, celery, apples, toss in some nuts, and have that on a bed of lettuce or in a lettuce wrap. You could throw in some curry powder if you want to change it up a bit. My thinking is that rosemary is good with potatoes and sour cream is good with potatoes, so rosemary garlic sour cream is probably the bomb. I think that will be good with cold chicken.

P.S. Rosemary and grainy gluten-free mustard are really tasty as a sauce or marinade. Just add agave, honey or brown sugar. Unbelievably good, and who'd have thought?

Don't forget Germany (bratwurst). That was kind of a mishmash when you think about it (but a tasty mishmash). :P

    • You're welcome ritamichelle. Yes, if you are biopsy confirmed then it will be much easier to get your daughter tested. 
    • I agree that In people that have celiac there usually is a trigger. It can be physical or emotional stress as the article states. I wonder though if the people they say 'don't have the genes' are folks that simply have rarer ones. There is research on more genes. I discovered it when I was writing a paper for a class. It was a very long time ago in 'computer age' and my bookmarks died along with the computer I was useing. But it is out there on peer reviewed sites like Lancet, NIH etc. Since celiac was rarely tested for even a couple decades ago there are many folks that may have celiac in their family but it was never known. That was the case in my family. I am confident about that.  I always wondered why my Mom seldom left the house, spent a lot of time in the bathroom, was tired all the time and was always holding her hands the way she did.  Then I became her.  We have so much to learn about celiac. Personally I dislike the term 'NCGS' because it makes folks think at times they don't need to be as strict and it isn't as serious. Too many are told that their biopsies are negative and they then get the NCGS label if they had positive bloods.  I consider celiac to be a spectrum disorder. Not all celiacs have gut impact or at least haven't developed it yet. I had the neuro impact and DH from shortly after I was impaled as a young child. It was many years before any severe GI issues arose.  
    •     http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/08/11/coffee-adulterated https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/how-was-your-morning-coffee-did-it-taste-like-mud-v6rfdmrrr92 http://grist.org/food/coffee-taste-like-dirt-thats-because-it-might-be/ " Using liquid chromatography, which identifies the individual chemical components of a mixture, the Brazilian scientists found wheat, soy bean, brown sugar, barley, corn, and rice commonly interspersed with the grounded coffee they tested. Large amounts of wood and dirt were also prevalent, an issue not only for purists who prefer to drink their coffee black, but for those with potential allergies to the unknown additives. As TIME reports, the scientists are identifying the rogue coffee with increasing accuracy:" http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/health/health-news/is-there-wheat-hidden-in-your-coffee/news-story/a3d53a7c36b76156f08d89eab6a396b3   -----   I have also read other references to coffee upsetting those with celiac.   Personally I have a family history of officially diagnosed celiac even though I have never been diagnosed myself..then again Ive never been properly tested. My drs just keep saying the following symptoms are anxiety and wont refer me to a gastroenterologist for:   Loss of bowel control, pale coloured stools, severe bloating, passing undigested food, ataxia, vertigo, migraine headaches, feeling feverish, repeated ulcers on my tongue and in my mouth, feeling generally ill and sleep issues (mostly falling asleep when I dont want to but rarely insomnia).   Because they insist its anxiety as routine blood tests are normal they wont refer me to a gut dr. They did do a blood test for celiac once on my request but it came back negative. This does not phase me when it comes to my suspicians that gluten is an issue for me because:   1 I was on a gluten free diet at the time, hence why i was well enough to crawl to the gps office. 2 I have a family history of celiac 3 MY symptoms are alleviated by a gluten free, dairy free, oat free, corn free diet..and lately, coffee free it seems. Coffee has indeed become a problem for me recently. 4 I could not tolerate gluten based baby foods as an infant. I was admitted to hospital as a baby for being underweight because I was vomitting all my food up. They put me on gluten free formula and i was fine, stopped being sick and gained weight. I could have grown out of it but considering the symtpoms i get on a gluten based diet, i really doubt it.   -----   When it comes to the coffee, food manufacturers will do most anything to make profits if they think they can get away with it. We live in a world where money is most important and if they do get caught...they can always claim they have no idea how the barley got in there!    
    • If you have had a sleep study and been diagnosed, you have sleep apnea. It's definitely different than waking up to go to the bathroom. Are you using your cpap every night for The entire night. Naps too? SA can actually cause death so it's very Important for you to use it every time you sleep. Do you follow up with your doctor yearly? Sorry to sound like the SA police, but I know someone who died from it. He wasn't using his cpap anymore, thought it was uncomfortable.     What Is Sleep Apnea?   Sleep apnea (AP-ne-ah) is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.
