Now, see THIS type of description is what provokes that drooling, honey.

oh, do not be scared. Karen can always shoot him.

The ribs sound outrageous. I LOVE lamb. Enjoy!

Dinner tonight (coincidentally)

Lamb patties

Sauteed Chard

Roasted baby potatoes

note to self :: put ground lamb on shopping list

Lamb ( and rice) saved me when I could eat nothing ( and I do mean NOTHING) else and is still my most favorite safe meal .

Holycraponacracker.....Your arsenal is getting bigger and bigger, K---you scary dame.

My baby cousin who was about 1 1/2 at the time spit out bacon and wouldn't try it again. I promptly took the opportunity to point out to my husband that it is his blood relation, not mine. Seriously, who spits bacon out?

Now, that's just a shame. Poor kid. :(Makes me cry to think he'll never know the joy of Ba-con!

My mother won't eat cheese for the same reason. Can you imagine 85 years without cheese???? I tell her "you can't be my real mom!".

I recall the days when you had to eat such a limited diet, Chill. I am so glad you are feeling so much better!

Lamb is my all-time favorite meat--I could eat it every day. Lamb shish kebab and rice pilaf...my Armenian Gramma's specialty and I loved

when I went to stay with her. Lamejun--Armenian pizza made with ground lamb and spices. Also, ground lamb rolled into meatballs with broth--crazy good with pita bread (well, those days of soft pita bread are gone, sigh ) . She had an old fashioned hand cranked meat grinder and I thought it was so cool when she made "meat strings" come out of that thing. :D

OK - some C and S involved tonight.

Leftover lamb ribs with a wondrous smoky rub and sweet and spicy barbecue sauce

Risotto Milanese

White-Wine Braised Celery

Guess what? I just made a roasted red pepper, escabeche, roasted tomato, et. al. chunky sauce with no specific plans in mind - it will be good on anything.

:lol: I know, my head is hung low in shame. I am failing miserably at S and C today. I am not feeling stellar at all (novocaine kicks me arse and causes heart palps, etc.) ah well....we will have sherried portabellas on that beef...does that count?

Ask them to give you the anesthetic that does not contain epinephrine -- I always do, because I get bad palps from it too.

Yes as to the sauce, but it would have to be "Sauteed baby portabella mushrooms in a sherry reduction sauce" for an A grade :D

you're right...I blew that one. :lol:

I did ask for that no epineprine anesthetic two visits ago (because you and several others gave me that great advice--thank you! :wub: ) but he must have forgotten this time and he shot me up --3 needles---and well, I knew within minutes he had messed up....this was a few days ago and the heart palps lasted 2 days!!-- and now, well, let's just say it messes with my entire system and I have a wonky tum, etc.

I'll try to do better tomorrow. man, I hate getting a C-..... :unsure:

A C- while feeling poorly is far better than an A+ while feeling fine :)

And I add my avoid the epi chant.

Long couple days here -

Dinner was chicken tenders - tacos for men -- broccoli, spag squash and carrot sauce added to mine.

Thanks, Mom.

And next time, I'll make sure he gives me the right stuff.

Hope all's well in sunny Cal..... and you're still very vertical.

Tonight is the hub's birthday dinner, but he has yet to tell me what he wants.

He is usually very cheery, but Grumblepants is not taking this birthday with grace for some reason.

I told him, "Oh hush up. It's beats the alternative."

I want to give him diver scallops and risotto (with an appropriate C and S, of course) and flourless chocolate cake with ganache.

But if'n he doesn't get more "perky", he's getting a ham and cheese sammy.

Last night we had indoor grilled chicken on salad with a spicy peanut dressing I made.

Tonight - pasta with a "sauce" of popped tomatoes & arugula/spinach

All well and vertical here after a minor hiccup this week - and it is pouring rain - I cant wait to get outside when the sun arrives - my lungs LOVE exercising in the rain - I know I'm a freak of nature. Or for nature and weather more precisely.

Happy Birthday to Mr. IrishHeart - just keep smiling - it will make him wonder what you are thinking about - I vote for the scallops - yum :)

Sis coming over tonight - she eats very few vegies so time to get creative ;)

We had chicken last night too. I was going to do the tenders like I usually do, oven fried with potato and cheese "breading". Last minute, decided to saute them with onions, make a pan gravy, and serve with smashed spuds and acorn squash.

I don't generally do perky, but for scallops and risotto there is little I wouldn't do. :ph34r:

Yes, do enjoy your dinner tonight and happy birthday to the grump. :P

Me? I seem to have this problem where I stay up way too late and when my alarm goes off I'm swear that tonight I'll go to bed at a reasonable time. Then before I know what happened the clock says 2 am again. How does this keep happening?!? I may just have a nap for supper.

Speaking of risotto and perkiness, tonight we are having encore risotto from last night (porcini and red wine and fresh thyme risotto) with steamed broccoli. Sometimes a big ol' bowl of risotto is enough!

Irish, how are you feeling today??

I am as perky as ever, thanks! I rebounded and my legs are getting better.

Mr. IH is cheery too. His momentary grumpiness has passed. No poopyheads tolerated (i was already previously married to one of those :lol: ).

The wonderful family who owns the gluten-free cafe brought him a carrot cake and sang to him after lunch today :)

How sweet, right?!

Risotto --encore or otherwise--is always yummy

And that's what he is getting with his filet (yes, he wanted that again)

No lobstah tails to be found. :( So, we make do.

Who cares right? I do not have to make dessert now, so I can have champagne, starting.......um, .....NOW....whoohoo..

    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy. 
    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I'm sure going to have a long talk with my doctor.  Then I'll find a new one that will support me and make sure that my daughter and I both have the proper testing done yearly.  
    • also:  glutendude - i don't get it.  shouldn't it be glutenfreedude?  lolz i eat out few and far between.  most of the times i've been glutened it's been eating out.  this weekend i'm getting my bacon cheeseburger on at red robin  i always get my 'good' waitress - lucky, i guess, paula takes good care of me   and i will eat at bonefish but they have a limited 'safe' menu.  look for places that have the 'GiG'  training they know their stuff.  mellow mushroom, melting pot, california pizza kitchen, pf changs are all supposed to be trained that way.  they know to avoid cc and change their gloves, etc.
