Bought some soy hotdogs today without reading the label, and now have a tummy ache. Third ingredient was wheat gluten. Do they put gluten in everything? emoticon

Working long hours...researching new gluten-free recipes and have been without a morning headache for the past month now...woohoo!...my uncle&aunt were in a rollover accident today but am happy to report no life threatening injuries were sustained...am having my 2 year old great nephew for New Year's weekend...he's just a sweetheart and such good company...I cook super healthy meals for him and he just scoops it right up...brown rice and all, lol...I give him soymilk which he calls 'Gia milk' (Gia is how he pronounces GA for 'Great Auntie')...Looking forward to the New Year and getting closer to my healthy living goals...Hugs, y'all

Just a quick Hi. With 10 people in my home and the youngest dd just leaving I just haven't had time to be on the computer. My oldest will be leaving tomorrow with her family so it will be super quiet. Glad I have a lot of cleaning to do to keep me busy as I will feel depressed for several days. Next week I will need to get back on track. I am so off on everything.

Have a Happy New Year.
Donna

I am excited about the new year. Have met some personal goals like walking treadmill 5 miles a day, stayed off gluten for over 4 months, and lost 8 pounds and inches around the waist with cholesterol down over 30 points. emoticon emoticon emoticon

We have 2 full refrigerator freezers and they get stuffed! I am trying to be better organized in all areas of our lives and that includes how I use them. I tend to over buy when there are sales, love to make freezer jam, gluten free stuff takes up some room and I love those leftovers too!! Just cleaned out my refrigerators and hope to be better organized with this in 2012! Barb

Good afternoon, presently enjoy watching Christmas movies while doing a little sparking.
BEANYGIRL I looked at your link and it looks like there are a lot of good recipes to try in the future. I have booked marked it. Thanks

Christmas is in one week. I have been so busy the past week I didn't know if I was coming or going. I need to get some pre-cooking done before our company starts showing up Wed. At times like this I wish I had a bigger freezer. At times I think I could really use a 3rd one. What is bad is a lot of my deep freezer stores so much of my GF products.

Hope everyone is staying warm. We are expecting snow tomorrow. I don't like snow so hope it gets here after I do my errands.

Donna

You're welcome!...I've been itching to watch 'Sleepless in Seattle' for the 400th time but can't find the DVD...I think my cats hid it...They don't like it when I sing along with Meg Ryan "horses, horses, horses"...I love that movie...My mother is having small fits about what to cook for Christmas dinner since I am now gluten-free...I told her, no worries I'll bring my own main dish...I was the only vegetarian in my family for eons so I am used to doing that anyway!...I'm sure ready for the weekend...how about you?

Mark, will you be waking up to take Stephanie or staying awake and go to sleep after you get back. I was going to work for a bakery when I was about 20 and decided going into work at 2 AM was not my thing. Also my mom didn't think it was a good idea.

I had a great trip to OK to see my DD and got most of my Christmas shopping done. Now just need to tie up a few stocking items and call it quits.

Have a great day.
Donna

Good morning Gluten-Freebies...Hehehe...Sounds like something Captain Kirk would say, although I must admit, Spock is my favourite...I was perusing the chat threads and noticed a common theme is how much it cost to be GF...Yikes!...I found a super site that offers some good ideas for saving money and has some great recipes that didn't require me to grow a new head just to figure out how to get it into the oven and onto my table...here is a link below...Hugs y'all...Beany

Donna, Have a great trip

What a week. Started out, Last Saturday evening I had to take Jenny to the emergency room because her heart was acting up again. They found nothing wrong with her after hours of being tested. Got home in time to make it to church services on Sunday morning and then slept the rest the day.

Stephanie started working at the newspaper. She has to be there at 1 AM and since she does not have a drivers licence I have to take her to work every night.

It was also shopping week so when I was awake we were out buying groceries and Christmas presents for everyone.

I think we can only hope that as more people use GF products that companies can lower their prices. I think they are just trying to make us much as they can and on a whole could care less. I am talking about major companies, not the bakeries and small companies who have to buy the big companies product to make their cookies and etc.

I will be away for a few days. Headed to Ok to see my DD and family and get my Christmas shopping done.

Stay warm.
Donna

I went ahead and ate too- feel better now and went to start the DVD all over again- but it started where I left off - so used it as an excuse to just finish the last mile- did feel good.. I also just DMSO'd my shoulders neck back and knees for arthritis.. Ha set now..

Mark, do you have outages very often? We lived in a small town and it seems like any time we had an ice storm or heavy winds it would go out.

Full morning. Got Christmas cards, now just need to work on them

Off to take a nap shortly.

Mark, glad you are feeling better. Things are back to normal from having Thanksgiving family here. Eating like I should and getting my exercises in. Now just need to keep it up.

Christmas tree is up. Still need to get the nativity scene up. I meant to do that a few days ago and it just occurred to me this evening it is still packed away.

This is mostly just a hi and see what is going on.

Good night, Donna

We actually started it at the church where I attended. The goal of the garden is to provide food for those in need. Our favorite places to Donate the food to is the Women's Shelter. They are so grateful for what ever we give them. But those that work in the garden are welcome to take home what ever produce they want.

I have finally started feeling better. The resting has been helping my back. I was finally able to start going to the Community Garden again and we have been having groups of kids coming in for Community Service. I am not able to do any of the work so I assign them chores and they work their two hours and are off to do what they want to do. One family was so impressed with what we were doing that they decided that they would have the whole family join us which was a wonderful thing to see. I was able to teach the children how to prepare the beds and plant the vegetable seed and transplant. They were all so excited.

I have been a member of this team a long time due to gluten-intolerance but have not posted. Seemed to have found out by experience some exciting things to make my life a lot easier. As long as I stay off the gluten my fibromylgia does not bother me, and I am partly getting my singing voice back, so have come to the conclusion that gluten inflames my entire body and not just the intestines. Have found some wonderful foods at Trader Joe's that are gluten free and taste good. Happy Thanksgiving to all. emoticon

God grant me the serenity to accept things I cannot change, the courage to change things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

I am sorry that I have not been on much, once again. I have been in a lot of pain. The one area of my spine that is not fused from the Ankylosing Spondylitis is inflamed and my Rheumatologist says that it is showing some degeneration. He prescribed pain medication for me so I can sleep at night which has been helping with my pain. But all I want to do is sleep during the day now. Sorry that I am such an absenty leader.

Hi Guys. Seems like all I did was sleep the last couple of days. It was fun to give out candy to all the goblins, ghoulies and princesses last night.

Mark it is so good to see you post. Glad you are feeling better. Things have been quiet as you can see.

I am off to the dentist in a few hours. Dread this appointment.

My DD and 2 year old grandson have been here the past week and just left. The house is way to quiet but I am so ready for some peace and quiet.

Have a good day.

Hi Everyone, Hopefully I can stay active now. Feeling much better finally after my accident. The doctor told me I need to be more careful because next time I take a fall I could break something. I did not realize that with my Ankylosing Spondylitis that the spine, event though completely calcified, Is very fragile and I could cause it to break off pieces of the Calcium (fracture of the spine0 which would cause a lot more problems then I all ready have.

I also spent most of last week in the doctors offices with our middle daughter. Jenny has severe migraines and heart problems. On Friday we even had to have her taken to the emergency room because her heart starting beating really fast and then she passed out and stopped breathing. She Friday night in the hospital under observation. The Cardioloigist that was on call said he wants to take over her case. That is wonderful. So she now has a new cardiologist who will hopefully take better care of her.

I got a recipe - maybe from here for all purpose flours that I can have
then added almond flour and only put 4 cups instead of 6 cups and added xanth ?? gum.. I would have to go find it for spelling...

no wheat, no soy, no sorghum ? , again would have to go get the paper to see- no remembering..LOL no gluten, no dairy, no soy , no pork, ......

made a batch of Quinoa this morning for the week- alternate with brown rice- trying to make Sweet potato chips now - made eggplant hummus yesterday - .... sure is a lot of making food....

Spiritseeker- The carrot bread sounds interesting...I love carrot cake and make carrot apple muffins as well. What kind of flours can you have? I am often tweeking recipes as well but try to write down what I did to remember how to make it the next time...Lately have been using mixtures of Sorghum, Brown Rice, Millet, Almond, with added starches (potato,corn or Tapioca). Seems like some taste better than others depending on what I am making) I love sweet rice flour for pie crust and thickening stuff as well. Smiles Barb

I made a carrot bread that I hope I can re produce !! it came out like a souffle .. the others I made were dry as dirt - would choke- had to wash it down... this is excellent - hard to explain - just hope I can throw it together again.. it was just guessing with all the new flours...
I can't have soy- or coconut...and others on this plan..
thanks for the info on the book

How is everyone doing with the gluten free eating for fall. I found a new cookbook..."Blackbird Bakery Gluten Free" by Karen Morgan and have been trying out some new recipes. I most recently made her apple pumpkin muffins and have been letting myself have one a day to meet my need for a fall treat! Yum! Have a great Friday! Smiles Barb
