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.

Colleen

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. :(

It is nasty cold and gray here and sneeting (that's sleet and snow) and just plain ick...gawd, where's the freakin SUN?????

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!

    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)

    • I had a biopsy done (2 samples, 1 on a lesion and 1 next to lesions), and also more bloodwork done. All came back negative. However, I only had been eating gluten for 2 weeks prior, and it took a week of gluten for lesions to reappear. I also used a topical steroid off and on (1x a week approximately) for a month or so before testing. The dermatologist told me to stay off gluten though, and said she wants to do more allergy testing (her next open testing appt is in 6 months!!). I know I'm not the DR, but I dont think it's allergies...without a doubt, my skin begins clearing about 2 weeks post gluten-free diet...this is without changing anything else in my lifestyle. And when i had to go back on gluten before my biopsy, it took about a week, but did reappear. Now, about 2 weeks post biopsy and gluten-free, it had begun clearing until i worked outside all day in heat, humidity,  sweat etc and it has definitely irritated all the places that were healing (not new breakouts, just aggravating what was going away!). All that being said, i have a friend who is an MD( who's hobby is to attend conferences on skin conditions!), and she has told me that without a doubt, I have celiac/DH.  I think I just feel like I need test results and paperwork to show for it...especially to show family members who are unsupportive (gross understatement!) of the extreme changes I've had to make!
    • Sorry ! I have never cruised before.  Just wanting to follow your topic.  Good luck! Have a great,  safe vacation.  
    • Hi there, I hope you're all having a good day! I'll be heading on a week-long Carnival cruise shortly and had a few questions: -What is the tipping protocol? I've prepaid gratuities, but feel like the food request will warrant something extra. Should I tip the headwaiter? Hostess? Regular waiter? Chef? Those cooking at, say, the sandwich or pasta bars? If so, how much is appropriate, and should I tip at the beginning of the cruise, the end, or split it up? -It looks like the main dining room will be closed during lunch hours on most days. Any recommendations on safe bets for midday meals? I'll be on the Carnival Sunshine, for what that's worth. Thank you so much for any information you can share!
