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:

Shroom, what's with the foam down there? saw it on the news....

We have freezing rain on the way here, must be coming from Irish. :P

Wish I could pack some up and send it east - we are unusually cold for here - but lots of sun too - even had a daytime fire today - I love this weather :)

Have a good friend down in Brisbane that is stuck in her home with her two toddlers as her sitter can't make it thru the floodwaters. She has two grants to write this week - no fun.

We had foam like that last year after storms. It was hilarious, but very odd.

IH, maybe you could get some bright lights and cocktails or something. Or maybe this is the perfect time to start practicing speaking dolphin to get ready?

Oh, more lamb encores with tomatoes and stuff.

I have never seen foam like that. I have seen foam on the beach, but that is some pretty wild stuff.

And yes, MW I am practicing my dolphin.....and all the lights are on. I could probably guide a jetliner in at this point. Maybe be mistaken for a lighthouse...... :lol: (ever see the Brenda Blythen movie w/Craig Ferguson "Saving Grace"...the lights they have on in the greenhouses? well, maybe not quite that bright, but close .)

hmmm - negative temp - then add wind chill -- even this queen of layers is OUT!

Tonight was yummy!

Men had another batch of ladas - steak this time with asparagus tossed with cilantro dressing.

I had....

spoon full of coconut oil

chopped skinless chicken thigh - previously baked - just heated in the oil

spaghetti squash noodles - also previously cooked

ground salt and pepper

couple handfuls of TJs broccoli slaw...I like it better than another brand I buy

last minute handful of cilantro so my dinner smelled like theirs - YUM!

Oh hon, I love you madly, but .....absolutely not. No one--and I mean no one--- should live where it is MINUS anything.

Cilantro makes almost everything yummy. I love the stuff. I grow it all summer. Girl, you make everything sound good--even on a restricted diet. :)

And coconut oil loves you, MW. :) If I could get there in time, you know I would love that. Me,+ beach = megahappiness. Me + beach + meeting you! = uber delightful!

I wish I could visit all the crazy fun people I have met on here. I would even go to where it is MINUS! ;)

I have met Gemini and Peter and MeggieLynn in person so far. Talked to a few on the phone and on skype. All very fun peeps.

Maybe a "world tour" someday down the road. Now, that is an awesome bucket list.

Dinner tonight:

Beef Short ribs in the slow cooker (never made them in there before--I was a slow convert to slow cooking)

I'm headed for the gym and those will be falling off the bone and luscious when we get home.

Looks like you have no takers! You might get someone to take you on as a house guest for a while... you know, if you offer to do the cooking. :lol:

And to think it only took 4 short years to come to my happy place ;)

I've often said I'd eat cardboard if it meant I could obtain good health -- thankfully what I get to eat is much more tasty :D

ps...still waving virtual pom poms that you are back in the gym -- nice work -- enjoy those wonderfully tender short ribs -- yum!

Who's up for offering me a temporary home until this winter is over in April? I'll cook! Supposed to get even colder tonight. At these temps it is dangerous to even walk half a block to get the mail! Blech.

Am willing to fly but I dislike heat and humidity. Somewhere above freezing would be awesome! Takers?????

We have a little studio with an ensuite and a fridge - alas no room-sized pantry to store all the sauces and condiments. We could, I suppose, move the cars out of the garage, since it is so nice and ~~~~warm~~~~ here. :) Yep, folks, we are actually having a summer with a big high pressure system parked over the top of us :D This is the first one I remember in a long time....... they say, the best since 1957!!

You are welcome here -- although between the dog, the cat and the revolving door of teenagers -- oh forgot about heavy metal band practice on Saturdays -- you may prefer to keep freezing those buns!

Do not throw this kind of invite out to this crazy bunch....I just asked the hubs if he could do without me for a month as I looked at plane fares....

Lucky for you, he said "Not really".

I gotsa a spare room with a potty in it! And a mini-fridge! :D Also, super-awesome kitchen

with a truly excessive amount of cabinet space (funny what having your house burn down

will get you.....) I live in CT, much nicer here! Hasn't gone into the negatives once yet this year!

IT is an electric stove though, as I am afraid of fire.... wonder why?....

Going CRAZY tonight!

Hubby is making meatloaf -- ONE meatloaf -- I'm going to have our regular gluten-free loaf.

Trial by fire of -- small amount of egg along with a few udi's crumbs -- Benedryl at the ready, but hopeful.

Mashed Japanese Sweet Potato for me - regular smashed spuds for them.

Brussel sprouts for me - Peas for them.

Edited to add:

Most delicous meatloaf I have ever tasted - sadly I will not be doing it again for awhile -- next time we'll try with just egg yolk -- suspect the egg white was the cause of my abdominal bloat and discomfort last night -- wasn't horrible, but it is the worst my stomach has been in months.

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam,  I second everything that Cyclinglady has told you, but just to let you know that I be me intolerant to dairy before my diagnosis for coeliac disease. The 2npositive tests, were they both blood tests or one blood test and one endoscopy? If you are waiting to see them in the Endocsopy department, I think they will want to do one if you haven't had one already and in order to do this and get the correct result, you must eat gluten for at least 6 weeks before you can have the test done, because it is the gluten that causes the auto-immune result.  I too have a thyroid disorder, which was diagnosed long before I had been diagnosed with coeliacs disease. Also a couple of years after diagnosis I became intolerant to soya and xanthan gum and E464 (hydroxypropl methyl cellulose) which is quite often found in gluten free baking produce, including bread. A food diary is a good start, which has also been suggested, but don't jump the gun if you haven't had an endoscopy with biopsies yet. It is still possible to carry on with gluten free and dairy free diet if you are vegetarian, but it makes it a little harder and don't forget dairy free milk is usually fortified with vitamins and minerals.
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      You might have a corn intolerance or reacting to something else like gums or preservatives.   Just something to consider.  
    • Blood results - odd
      The OP's hemoglobin levels are below range indicating anemia.  Her ferrtin levels (iron storage) is very low.  Like you, my body processes iron just fine.  It was absorbing it that was my issue due to celiac disease.   This explains it better. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/anemia/symptoms-causes/dxc-20183157 Excellent recommendation regarding the Vitamin D.  Other vitamins and minerals should be checked too.  What was odd, and perhaps you can clarify since you are in GB, can you not purchase iron supplements in a drugstore like Boots?    
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Fat.  Seriously.  It is what keeps you satiated and does NOT raise blood sugar.  I have been on a Low Carb, High Fat diet for 2-1/2 years.  I eat to my "meter".  I did a lot of testing the first month to see which foods raise my blood glucose levels (no surprise, everyone is different).  Buy a cheap meter and strips at Walmart and test it yourself.   I eat protein in normal amounts (too much and the blood can convert it to glucose), veggies, nuts, dairy, and some fruit.  I do cheat on this diet, but NEVER on the gluten-free diet.  My blood sugar has been close to normal ever since.   Butter melted on my veggies.  Heavy cream.  Avocados, olive oil, meat drippings, bacon.    Yum!   Finally, the American Diabetic Association is recommending this diet for some people.  Why not for all?  They thinks it is too hard to maintain it (they should try maintaining a gluten-free diet!) and to be honest, there is not a one size fits all for diabetics just like celiac disease (we all have our various tolerances beside the need to be gluten-free).   My GP disapproved at first.  Now, he says to keep doing what I am doing.  My cholesterol levels are terrific!  (Normal compared to being super low before I was diagnosed).   I started this LCHF diet because I know that I want to avoid medications for diabetes (insulin excluded).    My gut just can not take it.   I have been weaning my family off all the excess sugar that is so prominent in the Standard American..British..you name it .... diet.  I felt best when I went on this diet after being gluten-free for a year.   So, do your research.  Do what is best for you -- not for the herd!    
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hi cristiana, The paleo diet and the ketogenic diet would probably be helpful to read up on.  Snack on protein, not sugar and carbs.  You should have protein with every meal.  Protein reduces the meal total glycemic index and lengthens the time before you feel hungry again.   Sugar and carbs shorten the time to feeling hungry again. Or you could just ignore the whole thing and eat lots of sugary foods and carbs like my brother does.  And go half blind and have joint pain and nerve pain.  Those sugary snacks are a poor trade for your health.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
