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!

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
       
    • Thank you. This is really helpful. I will call around next week.  I just want to heal! 
    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
    • Spicely Organics has both cassia and true (Ceylon) Cinnamon and are certifed gluten free along with the rest of their spices, as to tea Republic of Tea has most of their products tested and certified gluten-free also. You can visit their sites or try Amazon.
