Reckon he has just found out he is going to join us while love2 is cooking. All those muumuus should wipe the smile of his face if you think he is a bit annoying :)

Yes! That's what it is. He looks almost too pleased with himself. When I got up at 5:35 this morning I did not feel that enthused. <_<

Tonight's dinner is Guatemalan Red Chicken Pepián. It is an involved recipe, covering two large pages of small print in my cookbook but it looks sublime and I love that sort of thing. As you know, I make nearly all my own condiments and things from scratch. This recipe involves making a wondrous Pepián blend which includes hard-to-get spices, green pumpkinseeds, sesame seeds, etc. and making annatto oil. Then you roast dried chiles, reconstitute, blend, fry with the spice blend. Oh, yes. While this is going on you poach the chicken so it is nice and tender. I am using peppercorns, juniper berries, a touch of demerara sugar and so on in my poaching liquid. Then you finish the sauce and ladle over the chicken, sort of akin to a mole sauce. As it the flavour is so intense I'll serve it with bay leaf-infused rice. Unsure of the side at the moment. Something light. Now this is my kind of cooking. ^_^

That Bravo guy is truly disturbing. Didn't I see him the other day on TV being interviewed from prison?

Trustfall chicken. Yeah, its a real thing. So I got turned on to the website cookingcomically.com via a friend's facebook post. I happened to pick up a whole chicken at the store and just used it instead of legs. For the record, dissecting a whole chicken is not my idea of a good time at 7 in the morning.

That's me right now. zzzzz

NYC was fab. I'm exhausted.... and it was totally worth it to go and revive our anniversary tradition.

I walked for miles, SKI--and I am none the worse for wear. Rockettes, Santa, tons of people--what's not to like? I went in St. Patrick's and said some prayers of thanks that we "came out the other side" of these past crazy 5 years. There's a devotional to St. Anthony--he is the go-to guy for help with lost causes, I am told by my friend who knows these things. So, we had a chat about helping all of us heal and get well entirely and have no more pain. Worth a shot, right?

Dinner at Craft

Wellfleet oysters, arugula salad, duck with huckleberry sauce, potatoes gratin, sauteed chard and pumpkin creme brulee.

...and some ridiculously good booze.

When they brought the menu over, at the top, it said Happy Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. IH

How did they know?

and yes, in retrospect, that overly-enthusiastic clapping guy is a bit much. :unsure:

Sorry, guys... :lol:

Karen, shoot him please.

Actually, it makes you a little frightening, girlfriend.

Now, "leave the gun and take the cannoli."

if you know what movie that's from, you get a free pound of bacon.

Has anyone ever seen this BACON BLOG called THE BACON SHOW?.

Posts a bacon recipe every single day. How cool is this?

Thanks, Ski xxo

As it so happens, I am also making Bacon Jam today!!

I have had that recipe printed off for months and now, it is time.

I am using the slow cooker. Why? because I am lazy.

Later, we will be having

Beef Filets

Roasted sweet potatoes

and some other veggie as yet to be determined.

I still have to bake bread, too--we're out.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
