I'm cooking extra tonight because I go back to work tomorrow! Turkey meatloaf, greenbeans, sweet potato for the kids and baked lemon basil chicken for lunch. My son is grilling pork chops to have on hand as well.

That happened to me once. I was solely catering a dinner event and making a slaw and all the cabbages had that stuff running through them!

Improvising forces one to be more creative - I actually quite enjoy it (unless I am catering! :lol: ).

Sounds as though it turned out well for you anyway!

It did turn out fine! Not very pretty to look at on the plate, but tasted the same as cabbage rolls anyway. I'm pretty good at improvising. My other ideas if I had not had the shredded cabbage:

1. add another egg and shape the filling into a meatloaf

2. try filling rice paper wrappers with the stuffing and baking like enchiladas

3. baking some potatoes, hollowing them out and putting the stuffing in those to cook

I'm making gluten free (of course) pizza, new pizza crust recipe. Still can't find a good recipe.

Have you tried the crust from the CIA Baking book? I posted it on here. You actually roll out the dough rather than spread it! One of the very few that I have seen. One of the best I have tried thus far. I posted both a soft dough crust and a crisp dough crust a few weeks ago...

Tonight is spaghetti night at my daughter's request. I just use my old favorite sauce recipe with TJ brown rice spaghetti. It's such a delicious simple meal, but we haven't had it in forever because it's just been way too hot to have sauce simmering on my stovetop for several hours. But my daughter has been begging so I'm finally doing it despite it being 109 today.

Last night my husband ended up marinating one steak in fresh squeezed oranges and the other in lemon and lime juice overnight and then cooking it on the George Foreman. He also attempted to make risotto since it one of my favorites, not bad for the first time even though not super creamy since he used regular long grain white rice. But it was served by candlelight so that made everything taste better.

Tonight we are going to try and make general tso's chicken so it's a Chinese food night tonight.

That's so sweet of your husband! I think we will have Chinese tonight too. I had no ideas until I saw this thread, thanks for sharing. I am going to make Kung Pao chicken.

- Boiled Dilled Baby Garden Potatoes

- Rosemary Orange Braised Baby Garden Carrots (OK, this one is obviously not Finnish!)

- Quick Salt and Sugar Pickles

Oh, you're more than welcome! My mind is so filled with food ideas at any given time it's almost pathetic.

I was just told yesterday by my dietitian to cut out dairy for two weeks (I've been having tummy issues now after being gluten-free for six months). So, that is why we pigged out on cheese last night!

Tuna melts (or even just tuna salad) on baked potatoes are really very good. Same with chicken salad, chili, stew...

I wondered if you were having issues with dairy before but didn't have the heart to suggest it, I know you love it so. I'm surprised the dietician only suggested two weeks though. (I believe I've read that you should avoid it for three months before reintroducing, but I could be wrong.)

I haven't tried soy again, don't really have any desire. I like coconut aminoes and thai fish sauce with citrus in any recipe when I want to go to China, Japan or Thailand. :)

Three months seems like a long time, but it isn't, and OMG, it is a pleasure to be able to have it again. Waiting longer may increase the pleasure?

Marilyn, you're too kind! I initially completely cut out dairy when I was first diagnosed for nearly three months then reintroduced it and was fine for ages. Then about a month ago started having serious IBS-like symptoms (that I did not get from gluten at all) so my dietitian wants me to start eliminating things. She feels I am consuming too much raw fruit, too, perhaps. Thankfully she is VERY celiac aware and full of knowledge. Darn it - I was hoping I would not get to this point. But I know without qustion that vinegar hurts. My doctor believes I may have an ulcer as a result of being on NSAIDs. So, now we're starting the elimination process... :angry:

I only got as far as the meat and dessert for tonight. We are having ham for dinner, probably some kind of potato on the side with peach blueberry crumble for dessert.

How were the lemon bars? I've been meaning to look for a recipe for those. it's something my grandmother always made around Chistmas when she was still alive and I've been missing them. I'll have to give that recipe a try.

    • Reality check in the past few weeks, looks like I got glutened at what should be a "safe" restaurant for gluten-free and gone right back to the beginning again recovery-wise Now too scared to eat anywhere and turning down social opportunities because of the food issues, what a miserable way to live this is.
    • Your issues is probably with the carbs then. there is a alternative. best pricing is miracle noodle. For Konjac rice substitute. Konjac flour works with some people others it does not. https://miraclenoodle.com/collections/miracle-noodle-rice-products There is a trick to cooking it but they make no carb noodles, and rice. I use the rice to make all kinds of rice like dishes like my mothers mexican fried rice etc. It does have a tad off texture and flavor but comes close. If your looking for no carb breads Julians Bakery makes some pretty decent breads but you HAVE to toast them to use them. I just found them a month ago....First time eating a bread in 2 year, and first time in as long as I can recall eating one that did not make me feel bloated and fat. No carbs, no sugars, no yeast, no dairy, no soy, and very low sodium...... Been eating french toast, vegan cheesy bread, bread with almond butter and sugar free jam I have honestly been in food heaven since I found it. BTW some celiacs can not tolerate any grains very rare but it happens.    OH and on what I have is really bad Ulcerative Colitis, so I have a bunch of other trigger foods that cause inflammation, bleeding, distention, constipation, gas, bloating etc. Carbs/sugars is a huge one for me fructose, glucose, sucrose.
    • They rotate growing rice and oats in the same crop. I unfortunately am intolerant to oats.  I have Dysbiosis according to a stool test, which is why I am quite sensitive to gluten among other foods.  May I ask what AI you have that makes you sensitive to carbs? I have been in and out of the doctor since November 2016 with chronic pain.  Trying to figure out what is going on with my gut, it's terrifying. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice from Thailand the other day which was recommended in 2009 by someone on here and a few hours later had the worst low blood sugar attack I'd ever had in my life. I am severely underweight due to the pain and I think this happened because I ate a bit too much (I LOVE rice) upon my first introduction back into my diet.  Even so I reacted just as I do when I ingest gluten (intense anxiety/hard to breathe/fast heart beat/constipation/intense pain under my ribs) So I don't think Dynasty is a safe brand, not for me at least. I only react this way to gluten. My other food sensitivities, the symptoms pop up around 24 hours later and are completely different. 
    • Thanks so much for the information. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice which was a recommendation from a sensitive individual on here. The post I believe was from 2009 so there's plenty of time for practices to have changed. I only ask this here again for updated information as I tried the Dynasty brand and got sick. I do not have Celiac disease (according to an Endoscopy) however, I have been gluten-free for 2 years and only ate a cookie or a donut maybe a few times a month for a year and a half before I was tested. I actually like going without gluten as I get less low blood sugar attacks and rarely ever get migraines. Not to mention, before I had the Endoscopy I was fasting for 2 days with no food or drink while I received other tests while I was in the hospital. I also got a colonoscopy at the same time so I had to clear my system out completely. My doctor believes I have a non-Celiac gluten sensitivity due to my symptoms after ingesting gluten. I was diagnosed with Dysbiosis so it could be my body lacks the correct bacteria to break down gluten. I have several other food intolerances including dairy and oats which many facilities process along with rice.
