Bacon! I actually only ate bacon for dinner tonight. Sometimes it's great to be an adult.

Pepperoni with melted cheese and gluten-free pretzels.

and wine. But they were turkey pepperoni, so not quite the abandon of bacon. :P

We had a couple errands to run after work so I quickly made spaghetti with green pepper and sausage. Sauteed the pepper and sausage in a little olive oil, threw in a jar of sauce, and let it simmer while the pasta was cooking.

I "almost" made this...but had purchased Italian sausage with peppers and onions at the deli in a local grocery store. One of the few things I know is safe that I pick up occasionally. Well, after diddling around replacing a string of lights on my Christmas tree, I finally ate at 8:30 with no pasta in sight and no desire to mess up my kitchen either. I actually added some pizza sauce to the sausage, which worked great. It was good but I really would have liked some pasta, too. The glass of wine I had was good, too! tongue.gif

I fasted today until sunset and then I went out and got a frosty from Wendys. It was the only thing that sounded good to me! Besides I will spend the next couple days eating lots. Tommorrow for breakfast/brunch I plan to make (turkey) bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches on Udi's bagels. Then I will spend the day making dairy free pumpkin custard pies and a gluten free cake for Christmas day. Steaks on the grill for a late lunch/early dinner (to keep the kitchen freed up for baking).

Christmas morning I'm making this breakfast casserole(using leftover turkey bacon and leaving out the ham). Then I have to get the lamb in the crockpotand put together my salad.

Both recipes look good. I was going to try a similar crockpot lamb (except with shanks) recipe but yours sounds better! :) Thanks for sharing.

That breakfast casserole sounds like it's to die for! For me I bet it would work well using Jimmy Dean's Sausage Crumbles and Simply Potatoes hash browns (I haven't had those potatoes for a long while but if I recall correctly, I think they're gluten-free...I'd had to read the label).

I decided last night to use some Al Fresco chicken sausage in place of ham. Also I AM using Simply Potatoes and they ARE gluten free. It doesn't say so on the label, but I double checked their website and it says they are gluten free. I have regular old potatoes I could shred, but I decided I want an easy breakfast. The casserole looks like it will come together fast.

Glad to hear Simply Potatoes are gluten-free! I thought they were but I don't think I've bought any since I've gone gluten-free. Who wants to shred potatoes when you can just get them out of a bag! wink.gif

I made gluten-free coffee cake for tomorrow and I will be making a sausage casserole to go with. Everyone is on their own for lunch. Probably sandwiches. For dinner, lemon chicken, plain white rice and green beans. Candy and cookies leftover from Christmas Eve if they want dessert.

Lemon chicken sounds so good. Do you have an easy recipe?

I baked two different recipes of gluten-free Gingerbread and taking those with sugar-free cool whip to my in-laws this afternoon.

What am I cooking tonight? Not a thing :)

I'm outta here to make a vat of mushroom-wine sauce (gluten-free, of course) to go with the London Broil my son is going to grill. Yes, he's been thoroughly briefed on CC. Guess I can pretty easily throw together a tossed salad, too. Dinner will be simple. Not sure what else we'll have but my DIL did buy some baby red potatoes and her father always makes a vat of the yummiest fruits.

This is the recipe but I haven't tried it yet so I don't know if it is good.

I will use sweet rice flour and omit the mint.

Today we had a Christmas brunch. I made pumpkin muffins from a recipe that I found here. http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/63096-pumpkin-muffins/page__p__572914__hl__muffins__fromsearch__1&#entry572914

We also had a wonderful butternut squash soup, mushroom, onion and bacon sorta frittatta, wild rice salad and some cantaloupe. It was delicious!

This came out very good! I did add a bit of Herbamare seasoning to the chicken after it was breaded because I felt like it wasn't enough seasoning. And when I make it again, I will have an extra lemon or two for topping. I had three lemons. They were small and not overly juicy. I used two of them for juicing. I had only enough slices to put one on each piece. I think it would be better if they were covered.

I'm cooking this hot and sour soup recipe to use up all my Christmas dinner turkey leftovers, along with some other things I had sitting around (half a package of tofu, an onion, some dried mushrooms, 3/4 carton of chicken broth, the end of a bottle of soy sauce, etc).

    • well, we're in sort of similar positions but can l ask what made you go gluten-free 3 years ago?   You've kept the diet for quite some time so where the health problems serious? at the time was seeking testing not an option? For myself, l absolutely tried everything to gain weight after losing January 2017. By April/May l started wondering how on earth l could be eating : regular meals, Boost shakes, fast food and sodas and candy all day, pretty much daily and still be losing. Some of these meals at home were pasta packed which, at the time l really thought goulash and cans of chef Boyardeee would help me gain     And years of headaches, brain fog that l didnt know what to attribute to but never suspected celiac until the weight loss, and legs and feet that hurt constantly (l didnt really know this could be due to gluten but it relived after being gluten free).   l am only about 2 months in, l did take a really basic TTG ia test after getting a response that my GI would test ''at some point'' and not being clear when that was, and very tired of being 97 pounds and scared of losing more!   so l now also have to wait to be tested more extensively, but l have gained some weight  and gave noticed some changes.    Did you have any improvements after going gluten free? If the test l did take had just been a clear ''no'', l dont  know how motivated l would have been to do this. It wasn't a clear yes, either, but designed like a drug or pregnancy test so the weak red line  does signify at least some sensitivity.   Typically the longer you wait, if in fact you are sensitive or even have celiac disease, the harder the challenge may be so l can understand the anxiety. l am planning for about 6 months. l could not handle going back on a gluten containing diet with my current job as well, and especially not during holiday retail season!   l would start very slowly. Is your new job going to be stressful? You might want to get a feel for the environment first and how you're going to deal with it on days when you might be feeling like utter crap >.> A headache that feels like a band around the back of my head and eye pressure was something l dealt with on my bad days before being gluten-free. It's not easy to function and when l did, l wasnt a nice person or very efficient.   You can start slowly, and please font be too concerned about fitting all of your challenge into six weeks, IMO. l wouldnt think of it as just a short term binge. Yes, you want to get it over with, but if you really fall apart and dont think you can even consume gluten daily, maybe try to do what you are able to do and if the time period gets stretched to 8 weeks or maybe more don't panic.   it should be difficult at first and even a shock to your system, but  even though you will likely not feel well the entire time you're challenging to retest, maybe by a few weeks in the symptoms will be slightly less severe and you can find ways to ease them. Any meds that you have taken like nsaids, a steroid, even Flonase helped me but l really dislike the side effects.   If the process in general with doctors and asking about this also gives you anxiety l would really recommend the walkinlabs recommended here. After 6-8 weeks, order (around 300 so plan for it financially). That will be your answer, make sure you have truly waited enough time to be properly tested and order the most extensive tests.    It's not something you want to have to repeat but l know l am not looking forward to it either! You will have your answer though, which, even if negative will be satisfying.
    • I can not add anything else, but I hope you feel better fast!    
    • Welcome!  I am so sorry that you are dealing with this.  With all your testing was active celiac disease ruled out?  Did they check for UC or Crohn's?  Flies?  I am on the West Coast.  The wind is usually too steady for any insect to hang around at the beach, but I recall getting attacked by them while visiting Mt.  Vernon.   Thank you for taking the time to share with us.  I am sure you can help someone else with PG.  You might enjoy hanging around with a group of people who have celiac disease like you!  😊 I wish you well!  
    • Peppermint tea can help with a gassy stomach.  Some people take activated charcoal tablets.  There's also aspirin and wine to consider.  Pepto can help (it has aspirin in it), and may soothe the the gut irritation.  But it is not a long lasting affect, take it every couple hours.  
    • Technically all distilled hard liquors should be gluten free, note should be Flavored ones, issues with back contamination, etc. lead many of us to play it safe and stay away from gluten grain based liquors and flavored ones, Some of us will tell you they never had issues with them others like me are to paranoid to even try a drink made from gluten grains. it is really Russian roulette, with these and you welcome to play with your life. NOW of those you mentioned I can tell you the Captain Morgan is safe. Rums are made from sugar cane molasses, of those I Captain Morgan and bacardi have responded to emails that the plain rums they have are gluten free, I myself use admiral nelson often no issues in cooking.  Taquilla is made from agave and considered normally gluten free. Some vodkas are made from corn, grapes, potatoes still, check the source from the maker, these are normally gluten free. Hard ciders like Austins are also gluten free.
