My new favorite food accessory, spring roll wraps!!!!!

I made fruit ones, mashed taters and vegetables, fried them in butter. Oh, and cinnamon and sugar ones.

Thanks you guys for all the advice for making these.

We had a lovely piece of lamb today, totally melt in the mouth. Looking forward to encores, if it lasts that long :).

Look forward to trying the spring roll wraps if I get rice back soon...

Just finished rolling up a large pan of enchiladas as I am off to class :D

A lot has changed since I was last a student:

  • e-textbook downloaded to laptop, kindle and cell -- my book bag is very light :wub:
  • rate my professor was fun to look at -- bunch of kids complaining about having to take notes in class -- this dinosaur takes great notes and should be fine!

Yep - lamb encores, with mushroom and tomato, cooked in garlic and coconut milk.

My tastebuds have gone really weird since this elimination diet. I had tuna with stir fried brussell sprouts and anchovies for lunch. Worse than when I was pregnant I think (and before you ask, nooooooo)

I was thinking a different thing on rate my professor, ooops.....

Now, if I had eaten the shrooms, the tomatoes, the tuna and anchovies with you, I would have burst into histamine flames. :blink:

(as much as I love those things, I cannot have them. bummer!)

Dinner tonight was a little egg salad for hubs and absolutely nothing for me. Why, you ask?

Because lunch was roast beef w/ au jus,sweet potatoes and carrots at the gluten-free Cafe near us.... and we simply have no room left.

Very full. Might explode.... :lol:

Gym day 4 and I upped my time on the treadmill, and increased the weight and reps on all 8 machines.

.It must be SkiLisa's inspirational pink and white bike streamers/pompoms she sent me. They're a big hit at the gym.

Here's Ski now!

there's one thing that remains the same...the student who takes great notes always did well in my classes. Dinosaurs like us always do just fine! My oldest student was 78. She was awesome and made me strawberry jam at the end of the semester.

Enjoy the class and have fun! You keep amazing us all with your miraculous rebound and I say "yaaaay, Lisa!"

I managed, on my first attempt, to make a very passable guacamole. I'm so thrilled it doesn't suck. I'm not sure why I spent years doing things like only eating it at Mexican restaurants. It is so easy too, insert avocado and assorted other crap in blender, blend.

So I decided after trying some lentil flour and being okay with it that I would being instituting a meatless Monday. I do not believe that my husband will necessarily survive until the end of Feb intact. :lol: I made a lentil and rice casserole, meh, coulda been better but I can fix that next time. He made all sorts of fun faces trying it and settled on french fries for supper. I also had a super thick crust of Udi's in the freezer that I got out, spread with an insanely thick layer of my guacamole then broiled it with some fresh raw cheddar the dairy store got today. My husband wouldn't even try that. I don't know about him, I think maybe he belongs to some super secret anti-delicious, anti-healthy religion. <_<

I have tried this in the past. This usually ends with a trip for fast food microwaving a frozen pizza. You know, the staples of single men by which they have learned to get by before being civilized by women. I thought he was a lost cause, but then twice this month I have gotten a baked potato into him. I have also won a few small toddler like battles with corn.

Me: how much corn do you want?

Very petulant husband: none! *pout*

Me: then I'll only give you two spoonfuls.

Tonight I am taking a night off from real cooking. Just going to throw some garlic flavored Brazilian cheeseballs in the oven and have penne with the sauce in the freezer. I'm in mourning over my Tuesday night show series finale a week ago. Maybe when I finally go rummage through my closet and get out of the jammies I should wear black today.

By chance was it Private Practice? I was not happy that they ended it with so many more stories to tell.

Yes, and I completely agree!!! My husband has been picking on me for years about how it is hardly more than television appropriate pornography. I can't get him to see past nekkidness to the actually moving and very socially relevant stories. Maybe I'll put the DVD box set on my Santa wishlist.

We're getting snow too. Still coming down and I'm heading out of the house in half an hour. BRRRR!!!! Half a foot on Sunday/Monday and a few more inches today.

My husband never really sat down to watch Private Practice with me, but he says the same thing about Grey's. Actually there aren't a whole lot of shows we can even watch together. I love my Grey's and Supernatural, loved Private Practice and Emily Owens (only 2 episodes of that left though) and I really love Star Trek.

On topic, I think dinner tonight is ginger beef and broccoli.

Well, I am mourning the loss of the very cool show "Fringe" last Friday, but at least the powers that be had the decency to reward the loyal fans of 5 years with a satisfactory ending.

Sorry, guys. :(

Time for something different to break the monotony.

Veal piccata

sauteed chard and baby carrots

Risotto milanese for the hubs

We recently had freezing rain. It is such a rare occurrence here in Utah and reminded me of all of the sleet and sneet from back home. I do not miss it. By all means, keep your sneet. Sounds like something straight out of Dr. Seuss book! Although I imagine he would have made it pink, we got the short end of the stick here in the real world.

Oh, and the few inches of snow today? There was half a foot on my Jeep again and it is still comin!!!

Australia tossed it our way because it was burning their little island up. We were fool enough to snag it as it went by, and now it is burning our little island up (literally, for both countries, although Queensland is under water and snorkelling :wacko: ) We are supposed to hit 40 degrees Celsius today. Think I might stay indoors :rolleyes:

Pink sneet indeed!--that would be grand!

Thing 1 and 2 could lend a hand.

To wash it all away from sight.

But feets of snow upon the jeep

requires more--it is too deep!

We need canana boyz with might.

Shovel here and shovel there...

behold! the driveway now is clear!

and Addy chuckled with delight.

I must be going mad you see

to write such frivolousity....

methinks it's time to say goodnight!

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
