DEC Trolls

This is the month for Trolls. They're hungry this time of year---please send
all trolls to Kate's Kitchen so she can make us a pot of Troll Stew. She's
pretty good at it.
You're welcome to bring side dishes.
Got the first post today saying we were KNITTERS. Even *I* know the diff
between using 2 needles compared to one with an eye and one with a hook.and
I'm not 'splaining what diff crafts I'm talking about.
TROLL STEW FOR DINNER...bring your scissors and rotary cutters.

I'm experimenting with a Troll & Cranberry festive meat loaf, and a veggie nut roast version... Both will also be GLUTEN FREE!
GLUTEN FREE TROLL anyone?
Oh, and gluten free TROLL CHOCOLATE COOKIES to hang on the tree next month.
Right now I need to finish a hat and cloak before Thursday evening, and find a large hat box...

DBIL and his wife, both coming for Christmas (along with 2 DDs and their current friends) is allergic to gluten, egg whites, and also lactose intolerant. Got a really good troll recipe for him? Roberta in D, at least he can eat The Goose

Working on it... The lactose thing might be the fly in the ointment as my cookie recipe has butter in. I'll experiment.

we eat ricebran oil spread in this house now. ds is a vegan so he eats the dairy free "light" version. both taste enough like butter and i used to eat light margarine, ewwwwww. great for baking too. so if you can find "Light Rice Bran Oil Spread" give it a try, you might like it. its cholesterol free for those with cholesterol worrys. it cost more but we dont mind if it tastes good and does the job. cheers, jeanne

Whatcha need? I'm allergic to gluten, eggs, and milk (among others) -- I'll be happy to share any recipes or substitution hints with you. How about Troll House Cookies?

Super! Main dishes are not the real problem -meat is OK, all veggies, and everybody eats potatoes or rice. My chief worries are desserts (it's Christmas!) and breakfast. We do not cook breakfast. Most Germans are used to eating bread, rolls, and such with cheese, cold cuts, jam or whatever. Boiled eggs and yoghurt on the side, but those we can do without. Finding special ingredients here that are what you might be used to in the US could be an issue! SIL has already said not to worry, she will bring a supply of fake bread, but I would feel really happy to come up with something breakfasty that they could eat. Roberta in D

I'll take a look for desert and breakfast in my recipes and report back. Availability of gluten-free flours would be the only issue. (A quick gsearch for "gluten free flour Germany" didn't come up with sources, but DID come up with a lot of interesting recipes for gluten-free German chocolate cake!). Here in the US we have a readily available baking mix that is my go-to GF flour, but I'm sure you won't have access to that particular one. Next time you're at the grocery store, would you take a quick look for any GF flours? Or can your SIL tell you what's available? We can work from there. :)

Kathy: I am totally clueless about gluten free diets. Would it be okay to include bread made with 'flour' that is actually pulverized oatmeal in a gf diet? I have cook booklet from Quaker Oats that has such recipes. PAT in VA/USA

There is a little bit of controversy on whether or not oats cause reactions in people with gluten problems. Most of the research, and my own personal experience, says oats aren't safe for a GF diet.

Kathy, after months of seeing your siggie, I *have* to ask: What is a fabric tramp??!!
Inquiring minds want to know ... or am I the only one who doesn't get it (wouldn't be surprised)??!!
Hugs!! Connie :)

You're just the only one who hasn't heard the story but had the guts to ask! :)
It all started several years ago, when a group of us foolishly were trying to use more fabric than we purchased. Given that my fabric was overflowing the space I had, it seemed like a good idea at the time. (I've since come to the realization that it just means I need to make more room for fabric. *grin*).
We were reporting our progress, and when it came to be my turn I said that I had been oh, so very good, except for a couple of wild out-of-town flings where I just couldn't control myself. One of the others (I think it was Merry) said that made me a fabric tramp, and the name stuck. :)

You might want to start cooking it, to get enough variety.
Polenta, hash browns, fried potatoes, whatever. I quite often have gluten- and dairy-free breakfasts with rice as the basic starch (it suits me to eat a lot of low-GI carbohydrate at the start of the day). There is no gluten, eggs or dairy in bacon, fish or continental European sausages.
Mixtures of dried fruit and seeds, soaked in hot water the night before.
Gluten-free muesli (overpriced but it's quick).
Citrus fruit.
Cheese (most lactose-intolerant people are okay with real unprocessed cheese, ask).

Oh! I love it!! Too funny!!
FWIW, "Queen of the Fabric Tramps" sounds so decadent and worldly ... very fashionable!! :) In that sense, the name fits you! :)
Hugs!! Connie :)
