How about while we are on vacation soon? Then when we get back you will be settled nicely and can have a lovely meal waiting for us. :)

Not exactly what I had in mind. :lol:

Most dental work, had an extraction yesterday. (FUN!!!) I picked up some of that Bob's Red Mill hot cereal which is pretty good doctored up. I've been adding baby food bananas and caramel sauce. Instead of some prepackaged junk though tonight I'm getting all adventurous and making my own caramel sauce. I wonder how many pounds of sugar it'll take to get it right. :D

Just take it slow and add whiskey or bourbon.

Or skip the caramel and go straight to the whiskey or bourbon...

I just cooked sticky rice topped it with my own sweet and sour chicken. I took a rotisserie chicken and pulled the meat off the bone, put it all in a pan, a can of pineapple, and a can of water chestnuts, Topped it off with gluten free sweet and sour sauce. Heated it until it simmers.

We had pizza with smoked duck, onion and greek olives. It should have been good, but we smoked the duck with orange sauce and it made for a really wierd taste combo.

Dear Wigglebutts (dog) was extraordinarily pleased because once we started picking the duck off, the pizza tasted good, and she LOVES duck.

So we had Friday pizza night with an ecstatic Wigglebutt. (Not her real name, but should have been.) At the end of the day, I can't ask for more than that. It was worth weird pizza. She felt like a slum dog millionare according to DP. (Wigglebutts is a rescue.) :D I'm still not sure who rescued who. She really helps the happiness factor. I would have been distraught that my pizza was a failure before I got Wigglebutts. Now we're all going to bed happy.

Chopped off a piece of right (dominant) thumb yesterday on my mandoline so am not cooking. DANG IT! Amazing how much we take our thumbs for granted. Makes things tricky (like this typing which is taking ages).

I hope that heals up quick for you. My husband is paranoid about my mandolin and is convinced I'm going to eventually cut something off with it. Sounds to me like a perfectly good reason to eat out for a few days. B)

I'm surprised I haven't done it before! Anyway, there are no safe places to eat out. We tried one last night but the employees had no clue about celiac, gluten, allergies, etc. so we just returned home. Then we go on vacation Wednesday! :D

Our small town literally has only fast-food places. That is it. We drive 3 hours to the city when we want to eat out at great high-end places. Thankfully I love to cook so it is rarely an issue. :)

I have three 9 year old boys in my house. We are eating whatever I find in the freezer since I can't get rid of the two that aren't mine. Hubs is on the golf course in 100 degree heat so there's no relief (or trip to the store) in sight.

I just fed them the last of the retried beans and corn tortillas. They'll be chewing on my ankle next.

I've got to get a new plan for boys that are rapidly getting bigger than me.

Lol! I got a kick out of your post, prickly. My mom always fed us pancakes. My brothers would eat over 10 of them. One is 6'6", the other is 6'2. We're in our 50's now, but that brought back some good memories. We all loved split pea soup with ham or sausage too. She made huge pots of pea soup. That's a love or hate thing though.

DP smoked a chicken today, just the way I like it. No sauce. Just mesquite chips and coal.

We had that with Greek salad and Glutino parmesan garlic bagel chips. WalMart is carrying them! Stonyfield Chocolate ice cream for desert.

Yesterday he smoked spare ribs I'd marinated overnight in papaya, cinnamon and brown sugar, then gave him a mop sauce of organic apple cider vinegar, minced jalopeno pepper, parprika and water, reduced. I had roasted root vegetable salad, he had supermarket potato salad. The ribs were fabulous! :)

Grilled a trout and some corn on the cob tonight. For some really stupid reason I can't fathom I touched the foil and have a rather large and painful blister right on the end of my right index finger. <_<

    • Yeah I've wondered a bit if I'm not getting all the other B vitamins from food alone and if they'd do me well. Magnesium content in the keto vitals isn't a lot. I try to get some more through food but I doubt it's optimal. I might have to look into that stuff. Interesting about the meats. Unfortunately I need the fat, especially if I'm gonna continue trying this keto thing for awhile, give it a chance to work. I did know about the difference in omega content, but since starting this diet I've been supplementing with fish oil to offset the omega 6's. Hope you'll be able to eat meat again soon, even if in small amounts. So much this. Every day I want to get up and do anything, and can't and it sucks. I want to climb the walls, get away from myself... Ugh, this takes too long, and I'm too impatient. Yeah, looks like I have to cook everything. I figured I'd at least be able to eat raw baby spinach. I need SOMETHING I can just grab and eat, but it gives me the same slightly itchy mouth that fruit gives me. I've been allergic to fruit forever... Don't have this problem with my steamed broccoli and cauliflower. I already cook everything else I eat. (and it's all organic, real food) So annoying to have to spend half my day cooking, not that I have anything else I can do. But what do I do when (or if) I get healthy again and am like, out somewhere? Damn I miss potato chips. I'll tweak a few things here and there and keep trying.
    • I see banana pudding in your future! ENJOY! I'm glad you came back to report what happened with the cookies.
    • Hey Josh! Corn is hard to digest even when one has a perfect gut. Imagine a damaged gut trying to cope with corn. Ditch the corn for a while. As far as soy goes, many of us, especially in the first 6 months to a year, have problems with soy. Some have problems with soy for years & years & others are able to have soy after their guts heal up. Some never have problems with soy at all. We are all individuals & react differently to different things.  I've never heard anyone having problems with sunflower or safflower oil in the 6 years I've been on this site. As far as lactose goes, again, I'm going to say we are all individuals...... I never had a problem with lactose, some do, some cut it out for a period of time & then later find it presents no problem for them and some can not tolerate it at all and some don't have any problem. A food log is a great tool for you to use to figure out what might be a problem.
    • Ok just to set the record straight, I tried one more cookie and then another and now half the package is gone so clearly these cookies are not to blame for the reaction I had that day. Still don't know what got me but it wasn't these!
    • Welcome, Josh! You have two choices: 1) go back on gluten and get tested.  This will help confirm if you have celiac disease or not.  Some 10% of celiacs are seronegative.  You should confirm if you had the complete celiac panel.  I personally am only positive on the DGP IgA, even on follow-up Testing.  Okay, if you have NCGI, the treatment is the same.  But with a celiac disease diagnosis, that puts you at risk for other autoimmune disorders or cancer (though rare).    You could have both IBD (Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis) and celiac disease or maybe Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.  Knowing this, your doctors can be on the alert for future problems.  It can also help you adhere to a LIFELONG gluten free diet because you will have NO DOUBT.  The endoscopy also provides an initial baseline.  2) stay gluten free for life.  Learn all that you can about cross contamination, avoid eating out (it is like Russian Roulette).  Eat fewer processed foods.  Learn to read labels.  Keep a food and symptom diary to identify other food intolerances.  Read our Newbie 101 advice pinned at the top of the “Coping”section of the forum.  Healing can take months to YEARS.   I have a formal diagnosis (four years ago) and my only known symptom was anemia.  No GI issues.   My hubby went gluten-free 16 years ago per the poor advice of two medical doctors.  We both know odds are that he has celiac disease, but we can not afford for him to be sick for a three month gluten challenge.    He will tell you that I get way more support from medical, family and friends.  We were easily able to get our daughter tested because of my diagnosis.  Easy for me to get a bone scan confirming osteoporosis, etc.   Only you can decide what is best in your case.  I wish you well.
