Edy's has Pumpkin Ice Cream (limited edition) which is really quite good! I served it to company with ginger snaps. I personally prefer ice cream in the winter with a good movie. B)

Did they make the cinnamon this year? So good with apple pie or just cooked apples!

Yum..must explore. Ooooh, wouldn't that be good on pumpkin pie??? :P(<licking lips.) I'm bringing a Smithfield Honey Ham, cornbread stuffing and a crustless pumpkin pie to my daughter's in-laws.

i ate too much :blink:

First, somehow, my microwave burnt the broccoli O.O so it had to be pitched (replaced with not totally cooked carrots)

Then i somehow oversalt my plate. So i toss the mac and cheese back into the pot stir it in (this is why i don't season whilst cooking most of the time) and put more on my plate. Was good, but every so often i got a bite of salty :blink:

can't win for loose can i?

Thai Mung Bean Noodles with Vegetables and Spicy Chile Sauce

Topic of conversation: Food, no doubt, as usual! :) Hopefully I can skirt the Christmas-with-the-inlaws-issue without argument. :P

Oh, for pete's sake, Addy! I told you a thousand times, it's not leftovers, it's "encores" :lol:

Cats do not care what we think..I have worried myself sick over Bella when she wanders....and she always comes home.

and finally....make pumpkin muffins, or bread or pie....shakes are not that great in winter...

They are okay in the summer, but in winter, nah.....they are fleeting and cold...It's like reading a sexy novel, with the window open in December.....goosebumps, shivering and no satisfaction.

I may have said leftovers just to be annoying. :P I also am obsessed with milkshakes, year round. I just can't help myself.

Hey, just have lots of champagne and you won't give a hoot about the cheesecake!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sadly, I do not partake. But the rules don't forbid me from cooking with it! You drink my share, I'll stick with pictures of cake I can post on my facebook to make everyone jealous. My family I'm sure is missing me and my baking from 2000 miles away. They have no idea how awesome being gluten free is, but I make sure to rub it in every time I cook up something yummy. :D

Let's see, you admit to being obsessed with ponies and milkshakes. Nothing wrong with either of those. Enjoy, toots! ;)

Dinner tonight:

Burgers and sweet potato fries.

Mom's coming for the week....she is tough to cook for. Think: Plain. Think: no spices, herbs, onions, etc. Think: 3 ingredient dinner.

(and BTW, that was SkiLisa's rule...like most younger sisters, she's keeping mum and letting me take the blame for it. I was pretty sure that was not my rule....But it's good to know I have not completely lost what's left of my mind) :wacko::D

To go with my husband's insane work schedule last week and this week, a busted car! Okay, maybe not busted but acting funny so I had to drive him to work today because he hates driving my Jeep. (Fine by me, I hate feeling trapped at home.) So anyway, instead of breaking out the waffle iron for turkey and waffles I think I'm just going to be 100% lazy tonight. Leftov...... Encores again. :P We'll do turkey and waffles tomorrow when I have more get up go.

Sweetie, we requested the change of topic title so no one felt "pressured" if they went slightly off topic talking about their day or their reason for choosing their dinner.

It does not mean (literally) that we expect to know what everyone is talking about during dinner. Some of our members eat alone, after all and some members just relax and do not talk much during dinner..

We meant the title to be interpreted as a " what's for dinner...and feel free to chat" thing.

we mean it like this....we post our dinner plans and we chat..we post our dinner plans and we chat (about everything from muu muus to an ideal gluten free compound)

Okay everyone? we just want it to be a safe place to talk about food. Good and healthy and nourishing food. :)

hope this makes sense.

Yes, IH! I just typed that in sort of tongue-in-cheek. At our house we do not exactly plan our conversations! :lol:

Anyway, more on the gluten-free compound location. What are your considerations? Mine are as follows:

- warm climate (such as Croatia)

- beautiful scenery (such as Croatia)

- wondrous food and ingredients (such as Croatia)

- surrounded by sea (for example, Croatia)

- amazing ancient art, culture, language and architecture (did I mention Croatia?)

- welcoming people - bet you can't guess where I'm thinking of!

Not too sure who "we" is/are, but WE had pork tenderloin, slathered with grain mustard with roasted potatoes and carrots. Great on a cold and windy day.

I like the idea of loosening up the topic. Good thought! And a thought for some future threads. :)

I used the word "We" to refer to the people who requested the change --and there were several of us---so people felt comfy talking about anything they like---- along with their dinner plans. Like muu muus or gluten free compounds.

We--are those who do not worry that much about staying on topic because sometimes a little chit chat is FUN. Hope this clarifies my use of the word we. :).

I agree.

Like Ba-con!! (I am not sure why bacon gets a bad rap from the medical community-- so many of us seem to think it is nourishing and healthy and so good.

I know that you know what I meant. ;) and it sounds like maybe you're inviting us all to just build right next to your place. Karen,maybe we have our "secondary site"!

    • This easy to make bean dip makes a great addisiton to any good munching session. Goes gret with salsa and gluten-free beer. View the full article
    • 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.
