Tonight's dinner:

I've got a Turkey breast on the rotisserie

spaghetti squash

maybe some peas for a change?

I am so proud of you, MW. ;) You never wavered once in your resolve. (you know I had to mix it up a bit when I had to delete the high histamine foods, but you supported me too!) and so, I am very excited for you that you have reached your goal.

You must need a new belt by now (you can only poke so many new holes in it)!

Good on you, girl!! whoohooo!

Do let me know how that cheese tastes!! (I still can't have that ) but I may have a bite of two of vanilla ice cream

I'm using left over chicken that I Roasted yesterday and making chicken fettuccine Alfredo. Another of my favorite. Meals. And I got these garlic and herb bagel crisp things for the side. Then mixed fresh fruit for desert.

Yummers.

Leftover soup. Today is a long school day, so no time to cook. It'll probably be better second day anyway.

Mmm I like 2nd day soups and stews.

Not sure about dinner yet, but nearly had chaos at kids teatime. We had their friends round, and I checked if there was ice cream in the freezer, did a big ' who wants ice creeeeeam?' only then to discover that it was in fact a very nice frozen stew in an old tub. Whoops. Yogurt is good, but not quite the same. Luckily they were all having fun and I got away with it...

Whew...that could have been cause for a kiddie uprising!! I'd have bawled my eyes out if you offered it, then said "sorry, none left".

:mellow: of course, I have put my yogurt in the freezer for a while and had "frozen yogurt"...sort of....

I have no idea what is for supper. At this point I am thinking a single serve bag of lime & salt popcorn and a huge glass of milk. Yesterday was the third day in a row of getting a half foot of snow off my Jeep, then sitting in an uncomfortable chair for something like 7 hours. I am just too beat for food. I guess the good news is that today we have some blue skies with a few puffy white clouds and it is super warm, it was already 35 when I went out for milk at 10 this morning.

Somewhere, deep down inside of me, there is excitement for you two. Maybe after a nap I'll find it. :lol:

Ok...perfect solution for L2T...my best bud is currently residing on a sailboat in the gulf of mexico....here is her latest blog -- oh and today's temp is 80 no humidity.

http://rockysoceanad...a.html?spref=fb

edited to add -- four cabin sailboat with a darn nice kitchen ;)

I'm typing this from the aircraft - I'm almost there! Shucks...it was all a dream. <_< Today was the same as yesterday at -34C and windchill making it -45C. Unless you have not been in -30 temps you have not experienced cold.

Love the sounds of 80F and no humidity and "...darn nice kitchen". Does it have a KA stand mixer? A Vitamix? :lol:

Last night I did dessert for first time in a long time (we don't need it). But our plums are ripe and they are those big meaty red ones, yummy thingers they are. So I did a plum crumble with cinnamon and O.M.G. I can't decide if it is best plain, with Greek yogurt, or with ice cream. :D

I certainly have. When i lived in MT it wasn't that uncommon to get it a few times a winter. I also experienced it a year and a half ago when i was still in the dorms at my school. Long story short, heat went out, then came back on a few hours later, then i heard a pop... ignored it... heard it again. I went to investigate and the sprinkler above my door in the hallway had water leaking out of it. Water flooded into my bath (on the other side of the wall from the hallway) and into the little hallway in my room. Got to clean that mess up myself because there was a bigger break in another one of the dorm buildings (several inches of water). The other "floodies" and i were set up in a hotel room for about 5 days while they cleaned up (and in my case, patched up the cealing in the bathroom and aired it out). Luckily, nothing of mine was damaged and my school decided to cancel all classes that day.

and did i mention i was the only one in my building that got flooded? Uhuh some luck huh? :lol:

This is why we moved to another state finally, so we could just visit cold, and then come home an hour and a half later to where it may frost but seldom snows. :)

It wasn't just the cold, it was the cold, the freezing rain ice storms in November-December that coated everything with a half inch of ice so you had to open every latch and gate with a propane torch, (and you just weren't going anywhere without 4whldr, I warmed my engine up once by building a charcoal fire underneath it to get the engine to start) the tornado warnings, the hail large enough to trash one's car, and the summer humidity with 95º F temps, and the alternate flooding and drought. The crazy neighbors were just the icing on the cake. I was talking about this the other day with the neighbors here, and they asked why does anyone live there, I said the land was pretty. We have really high summer temps here that would probably blow them away if they couldn't adapt, if the fire season and typical rainy winters didn't. I think a nice day is about 95º F in the summer, 80ºF feels chilly, because the temperature drops so dramatically at dusk. We seldom have "spring," it seems to transition immediately from when is winter going to be over, to time to irrigate because it's really hot. March can be a lot colder than January.

I still don't know what is for dinner. It is either leftover home made Indian Butter Chicken and rice, or scrambled eggs and homefries. All I know is that we had better eat some of that fresh pineapple for dessert. :P

Congrats, Shroom! ---you prompted a full -on laptop drool this morning. :D (we don't need it either in this house, but it is good to indulge, yes?)

Yeah we got about 2 or 3 inches. Enough to make me go slipping and sliding.

Soup again, the last of it. So heavenly. I'll have to pick up some more shell pasta for it now. It worked wonders! I cooked the pasta in the broth and it was heavenly (ancient harvest). I wouldn't do that with rice pasta though, i'd cook it seperate.

At least it is good for something besides annoying me! I'm hoping that Phil has some good news for us tomorrow morning and tells us that this winter crap is done with.

I've been inching up on my iodine, thinking that my DH outbreak was mostly due to a CC incident. Well last night my husband told me that popcorn isn't a proper dinner and I finally snapped and am testing. I broke down and flat out ate fish. I had a couple "breaded" filets in the freezer and I finally decided to find out if I can eat fish without dire results. Now... I wait.

Tonight, roasted chicken. And um... some sort of vegetable or something like that. Probably potatoes because roasted chickens mean gravy.

    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
