  1. My mother sent me a newspaper clipping of a whole bunch of things you can do with corn tortillas. This morning I made one of those recipes. You warm the tortillas (3, because there are 3 of use) in the microwave until soft (40 seconds). Then you gently fold them into a muffin tine mold so that...
  2. I'm cheep cheep when it comes to quick and easy dinners for kids. My son LOVES this and he isn't gluten-free. I take the chub spiced sausage and cook in a saucepan. I then add sloppy joe mix to it and serve it over rice with a salad and milk. The kids really really enjoy this. The spiced sausage...
  3. A yogurt company is trying to market yogurt as being a substitute for mayonaise. I got to thinking...whoa! Hold on to your hats! There is this yellow cake recipe that uses a cup of mayo in it. The only reason I don't make it very often is because mayo is kinda expensive if you use a cup at a time...

    More Mexican Food!

    Last night my son and I went over to my ex-aunt-in-law's house (how's that for a tenuous connection!) and we had fish tacos out on the patio with a fire in the fire pit. There are some things that are pretty cool about Arizona in February! I've been offered the job of English director and my...

    Yogurt

    The homemade yogurt came out great. Every one loves it. I added nutrisweet so that it wasn't so bitter. I also added gelatin so that it would be firm. My son, 1.5, just smacked his lips in joy! What a cutie! The divorce isn't going amicably. My soon to be x is crazy. He called the police...
  6. Okay, so 85% of the time I like leftovers and easy-to-make dinners because of the whole working single parent thing. Tonight I out did myself with nachos. There's that Mexican food again. Yeah for Mexican food! So, I figure a bag of tortilla chips on a tray sprinkled with cheese under the broiler...
  7. DH had the kids on Friday night so I went over to a friend's house for Mexican food and drinks. The woman preparing the food was so funny. She knew I was allergic to wheat and everytime she used the corntilla (made-up word) fork on the flour tortillas she'd swear at herself and throw the fork into...

    Pot Roast...

    The office had pizza for lunch today and what did I have? Pot roast....grumble mumble. I gave the rest of the leftovers to the cat.
  9. Good evening all, Today was a good day. We had professional development meetings all day and the boss took us out to lunch. It was at a sports bar. Lots of burgers, sanwiches, deep fried everything, etc. I had nachos. They were really good. They had real cheese on them and fresh salsa on...

    Dinner For 01/12

    I invited over my co-worker for dinner. She's a ball. I late 50s-something widower from New York via East Germany. I made Spanish tortilla with eggs and potatos, then served a green salad and mint tea. Just a simple dish but everyone seems to like it! Spanish tortilla: Slice 4 fist sized...
  11. As I sit in the office kitchen eating my lunch that I brought from home, again, I often reflect on how much money being a celiac is saving me. Everyone eats out, well most people do, and I always carry in. Sure, I could order salads and what not, but boy...salad sure does get boring. I also don...

    Dinner Tonight

    Tonight we had a wonderful dinner: Roast chicken with lemon pepper, celery salt, thyme, and rosemary, cooked at 350* for 1 hour White rice (not as nutritious as brown, but the brown rice is too hard on my 1 year old's tummy) Sauteed veggies, yellow squash and zucchini with onion and oranges for...

    Overview

    This is a blog about my life and how I cope with Celiac. What I eat, things that I run into, reactions from other people, and reactions from me. The good. The bad. The ugly. I have been Dx'd for about 1.5 years. During that time my life was not only turned upside down from my diagnosis,...
