Oh my goodness - this manhunt is sad - I know exactly where he burned his vehicle - with minimal gear - he could have hiked out - to two or three major interstates - I'm hoping he decided to disappear - otherwise I've got a few friends on s&r in harms way --- my bet is he is gone into the wind.

Quick! someone talk me out of making a vanilla cheesecake.

Don't do it... it is all an evil plot by the cows to make you have hips like theirs.

Okay, my heart isn't in it. Have cheesecake! Glad to see you're still with us so far.

Friday night is pizza night. Bacon smells good in the oven -- as soon as it's ready everyone will fix their own pizza how they like it. I better get in there and chop some veggies!We are using the Pamela's gluten-free bread mix - pizza crust recipe on the back. I'll edit it with a photo when they're out!

Yum!

PIZZA!! Not because it sounded particularly awesome but because I feel particularly lazy. Hubs went and picked up a take and bake from his favorite local shop where they are as cheap or cheaper than a not terrible frozen store pizza. Usually we share a pizza, but I wanted one to myself so I can have leftover all weekend. He can keep his gluteny hands off my dinner!

ETA: I should add that pizza is lazy food because I don't make crust. I have a few Venice crusts left. :D

EVERYBODY FEEL BETTER ASAP! i think it's the winter, seriouslyy, husband is on the couch with a heating pad on his back :( it comes and goes, but mostly he has trouble with it in the cold weather. my poor hero. and it's a relatively nice day here in east tennessee - was hoping to get outside and start a fire by the river - but since he follows me everywhere i guess i'm stuck in the punkin shell....

might as well cook.

grilled bbq chicken legs (NOT smoked, just marinated in sauce)

baked beans

some sort of pasta with cheese sauce

Korean Rice Cakes with Shrimp and Peas (am not making the rice cakes from scratch - while I usually love labour-intensive recipes, I just don't have it in me today d/t pain). To me this is the ultimate comfort food. Husband is away, it is snowing (as usual) and I'm hurting all over. But things could always be worse. ;)

This might just be one of the nicest things I've ever heard about a couple loving each other.

Oh sweets! I know this kind of hurting all over and I wish I could make it stop for you.

I am sending you so much love and supportive gentle hugs. Stay warm. Heat your muscles. Rest.

Wishing your pain away and Hubs safe return. You are amazing - even in pain your creations are nothing short of miraculous.

Hoping your pain becomes less each day :)

;) have a blast!

So, back to basics!

Dinner tonight:

Pork medallions in carmelized onions

Applesauce

and the "encore" of the butternut squash, goat cheese and hazelnut gratin.

I exercised major restraint and did NOT make the cheesecake.

not sure where this is coming from, except maybe the resurrected gym rat I had inside me? :lol:

I broke out my sled--yes, it is a flexible flyer from (ahem) 1967--still in tip-top shape and I am going to use it tomorrow.!! why not??

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • 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!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
