Just got my 1st crockpot!!

So, fingers crossed pork (loin!) with leeks onions carrots with sage and tarragon. Put a few bits of potato, hoping it will thicken a bit.

More excited than is reasonable :)

mmm, that sounds good (as does most of the stuff you all post here!). Would you mind sharing the recipe?

This was in reply to the comment yesterday about cheeseburger chowder. I tried to quote that post, I don't know why it didn't show up that way)

Hi Wheeleez! Um, I don't actually measure anything, so here goes.

For huge pot o' chowder:

2 lbs ground beef

1 5 lb bag potatos (I used two to make homefries first, so up to you)

2 onions

bunch scallions

Brown ground beef in big soup pot, season the crap out of it, add chopped taters, onions, scallions, and enough water to come one inch below food. Boil until potatoes are tender, add:

1/2 & 1/2 (about a pint)

pile of cheese.

You're done!

It's always better the second day. Would also be good with broccoli... hmmm....

I found trout on sale today at the store. I have missed fish these past few weeks so I am very excited. I'll probably just fry it up on the stove. I think maybe some sort of potato with it and some fried green beans too.

My peppermint cocoa pebble treats are awesome! I don't think they'll survive long.

Have you tried any of the venison yet? If so, is it very gamey? Sometimes I find it deplorably gamey but other times it can be very good. I love good venison and one of my favourite ways to do it is to make a blackberry (or cherry or other slightly tart berry) gastrique. A loan recipe that is very good is Roasted Venison with Blackberry Sage Sauce...very appropriate for your cut.

http://leitesculinar...sage-sauce.html

Please let us know what the flavour is like. I am very curious!

welcome back, love2! this is the last of the venison in the freezer he got last year, so i know it is tasty :) i grew up in northern nj and whenever i ate venison from up there, yes, it was pretty gamey - people would soak it in milk overnight to get the gamey taste out. i was not a fan!! but down here in east tennessee, he hunts up in the mountains and for some reason there isn't a gamey taste to the meat. almost zero fat and mostly anything you can do with beef, i use deer for. he gets ground meat i use it for sauce for spaghetti, chili, burgers <although i usually add some other kind of meat to burgers to hold them together. also roasts: perfect for sauerbraten or pot roast, etc i will also cut it into cubes and make stew or slice it & marinate it for grilling on skewers. that blackberry recipe looks delicious but i think i will save it for when we have all those blackberries coming in next summer! :D making mushroom's suggested recipe tomorrow night (still eating leftovers tonight lolz) to feed the hubs and then he goes back in the woods - between trucking and hunting, if he ever leaves me i probably won't notice!!!! ;)

Glad you found a recipe you like. My dad was a big game hunter so I was raised on elk and moose. My husband used to hunt when he had time. Sometimes I would go along with him to camp (we have a camper). I would stay in the camper and read and cook and have steaming hot chocolate ready for him when he got "home" from hunting, often with snow on the ground as there is right now.

I love a good elk burger.

At any rate, I had a cheese wrap with a big bowl of broccoli.

I am making crispy baked fish (cod) and chips with a light batter and crispy coating. Oh, and onion rings, too. Crudites with Green Goddess dressing.

Dessert? Today I made pecan cinnamon buns you ROLL out. Delicious. You can actually peel the layers apart.

Turkey day today! I'll make cornbread pudding (from the new Living Without holiday issue), mashed taters, gravy, and pumpkin pie shakes. I'm far too lazy to make a real pie on top of actual cooking.

When I start my gluten-free compound/settlement Lovie has to come cook for us! Probably give her the main house cause it will have the best kitchen.

Can't say what I'm having. :ph34r: Irish told me I can't say left-overs or a meal with less than 3 ingredients. :P

Steak with fried onions. Juice. And a carob coconut bar. My dad just came back from a trip and brought me those fabulous treats, as well as my always favorite soy chocolate aaaaand 2,5 kilos of almonds. Which makes me happy because I starved last week since I didn't have any almonds to make butter and neither could bake goodies with flaxseed flour (since I have to rotate the flours I bake with and the almonds were an hour away by car).

So I am a happy girl with my carob coconut bars and 2,5 kilos of almonds. I have almonds for the rest of my life.

Temptress! You kill me. :lol:

I love good fish and chips - the real thing, not the fake insipid purchased icky commercial stuff. Oh, and did I neglect to mention my homemade tartar sauce with lots of capers? Oh, man. I almost can't stand it.

The pecan rolls are good but need a couple of tweaks. At least they unroll like they should... :rolleyes:

And you know you would always be welcome here (as long as you and Sylvia shovel for us! :lol: )

You told me a real meal has more than 3 ingredients. :)

And we would have a tractor or truck with a plow so you could " shovel"

    • Good grief!  :o. I'm so sorry, I wish there was something I could do or say to help you.  I agree with the NP, your primary needs to be requesting copies of your records from the other doctors, as well as the records and lab reports from your hospital stay.  They are supposed to work together as a team, not just individually out in left field.
    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep.
