Tonight its not very exciting lol. Leftover chicken and bag of frozen veggies. I usually am very experimental and weird with what I cook: I will eat anything as long as its healthy and gluten-free.

Dinner doesn't have to be exciting. Our salads are just converted from the sandwiches my husband used to love and got addicted to during his short stint at Blimpie. I'm not even cooking chicken, we're going to use the leftover Costco chicken. I suppose I still have to cook though if I want my mac & cheese. OMG though... I got stuck in this stupid thing that is taking forever and haven't been able to get away to eat yet.

Last week I had a few overripe bananas from my basket so I decided to make banana bread. (This was after my trial and discovering I can in fact eat bananas. YAY!!!) My first try was tasty, but didn't turn out as.... bread. My second attempt I used the minimum amount of bananas called for, added a little xanthum gum. I was going to look up how much to use for the amount of flour but then was in the kitchen and ready to add it and just went with 1/2 tsp. I also threw in a little cinnamon for good measure. It came out perfect! Isn't really a dinner thing, but it has been our dessert for two nights. This is the recipe I used, I only make half at a time though. http://www.musingsofahousewife.com/2011/11/best-ever-gluten-free-banana-bread.html

I'll be busy tonight when my husband gets home from work. So I'll have a salad ready for him and a burger ready for him to grill and he'll be all set. I suppose if he wants something more he can nuke a "baked" potato and put some bacon and ranch on it or something. I'll have the same thing, just much later after I get off the phone. And we'll follow up with a late snack/dessert of more banana bread. :D

Something soft and squishy as I had a LONG dental appointment today.  :(  So, I had Eggs Benedict and fresh blackberries.  Tomorrow will be a vastly different story.   :)

That sounds like a perfectly splendid dinner after a day at the dentist.

Dinner is salmon tonight, cooked yesterday.

I managed to get myself a great whack on the head Wednesday, quick er trip. Not too bad, cut and big bruise, and some shock. So I had a sweet tea, bit of chocolate. That started up the sugar addiction thing. I had a bit more chocolate, 2 small merrangues (sp!!) and now I am wiped out and have D. Taken immodium, so who knows what happens next.

Looks like no desserts here for a good while.

Very excited about certain people looking at new constructions....

OUCH!! I hate those noggin whacks. Are you okay?? Did you look like this when it happened? :wacko: Poor babe.

I have hit my head more times than I should admit. Open cabinets doors left open, misjudging the height/depth of something, that sort of thing.

I blame gluten head. It has not happened in a while (I said that and then, spit for good luck as surely it will happen now)

Hope you feel better soon.xx

 

We're having good old burgers tonight. Fresh corn. (yes, corn is A-OKAY for me! ) and that's it.

Too many carbs, not enough weight loss going on. I know, it's vacation, but I have been very, very naughty. :lol: waddle, waddle....

Awww, you're poor noggin! Hope you feel better soon. Last time I did that I had been horsing around with my husband in bed, like good old fashioned horseplay like 8 year olds indulge in. Then WHAM! my head and the headboard had a meeting and I saw stars and blacked out for a second. Try explaining that to the ER staff and getting them to believe it wasn't something naughty.  :P Hopefully you at least had a good story for the ER staff!

 

No one will give second thought to a muumuu in Florida. Bring on the desserts! Also, make friends with ducks and people will take less notice of your waddle. 

 

I forgot I was working this afternoon and didn't make dinner plans so I have no idea what we're eating. My husband wasn't scheduled today but got a text last night asking him to go in today, which is generally awesome for the money. Not so awesome for pawning dinner off on him. There is some pepperoni in the fridge, maybe pizzadillas? And I have a little cauliflower left that I could turn into buffalo cauliflower. It would almost be like having a vegetable. I'm still too scared for broccoli  I'm just going to carve it up and freeze it tonight. Everything dark green scares me since spinach is what set me off.  :ph34r: Maybe I should just feed it to my bunny.

Thanks Addie!!!  Irish waddling with ducks in a muumuu....I may need to waddle on down there and join in the fun.  Corn!!! Wahoo IH - me too :)  I ate popcorn this morning with butter - OMGoodness - I have missed popped corn!  So far so good.

 

So yesterday was good and bad but very long.  Mom is finally settled back home after 38 days in the hospital -- I know she is glad...but heck I am too - have been wearing a groove in the road between my house and the hospital lately.  Was pooped when I finally got home after getting them all situated -- hubby made a lovely meal and then stepped in it -- the DA - turned down VIP seats at the California Speedway for Sunday  :o  :blink:  :wacko: I took a sip o' zin and says -- ah honey - why would you turn down those tixs?  He says -- been there done that -- ok we did indeed live infield for 5 or 6 seasons when the speedway first opened -- highlight was our second to last season -- we cut the sample PIT/GARAGE passes off the fencing surrounding the garage area -- threw them over our regular infield credentials and sat on the pit wall for the entire race -- it was Jimmy Johnson's very first win as a cup driver -- in victory lane -- hubby shouts out to Jimmy as he's doing the hat dance (pics with hat of each sponsor) "Hey Jimmy - how about one for your fans!" and Jimmy tossed the hat straight to hubs -- awesome day.   Sorry for rambling back story -- so last night he says been there - done that and I was  :blink: -- we have never been in the VIP lounge for a race -- if you haven't guessed by now I had more fun talking with drivers, crew chiefs and pit crews than he did -- how can you turn down a free luxury box -- I love my honey and he is the best -- but today he is firmly planted in the DA catagory  :wacko: - tomorrow he'll be back in the wonderful hubby box  :wub:

 

Oh dinner -- chicken tacos for them  -- chicken and vegies for me.

 

PS...Feel better CMw -- my man and one son seem to feel their way around the world with their heads -- theirs are very hard -- mine not so much - I hit it and it hurts!!!  kick your heals up and watch something funny 'til your head feels good once again.

What kind of..... well I'd call my husband a DA too..... does that?!?!  :blink: I'm practically speechless, and that takes a real feat of monumental dumassery. (Its a word.)

Thanks everyone :)

entirely my own fault, trying to do a job too quickly. When moving shelves, I advise moving the stuff off the top shelf first.

This had me laughing. I recently cleaned and rearranged three sets of four shelves and had a near miss due to thinking I could move a shelf down a notch with stuff on it. :ph34r: I'm laughing with you, I swear! (You're laughing right?)

Laughing now :)

Cringing with embarassment at the ER....

Wait, I missed the corn reintroduction woohoo!!

I was going to try it today, but after my sugar and Imodium exploits this week I think I will go for a bit of recovery time first.

Sorry to hear about pork IW :(

An exciting weekend of clearing mould caused by condensation ahead here...

...now, that does sound exciting!  mould clearing...wow....wish I lived closer so I could come and help!

(just teasing --as I know laughter heals boo-boos) ;) Up watching the sunrise and your post made me giggle.xx

 

Going for some type of fish tonight (shellfish for the hubs) --we'll see what's fresh at the ironically named New England Fish Market nearby

and the asparagus looks inviting at the produce stand (probably be roasted)

 

That sweet corn was awesome. Hope it does not bite me on the behind.

It's coming to you, too MW...hang in there!!

 

Have a good weekend, all!

Being a nondrinker, I suppose I must learn to sail and be our designated.... um... sailor? driver? something like that. At least I'll earn my keep.

 

You can make burgers out of gators? OMG! We'll all have matching purses in no time!

Booze Cruise is just a nick name -- all ages and beverage types allowed/required? to join in the relaxing sunset cruises.  

 

PS...I don't think anyone is going to wrestle the wheelhouse away from my honey - except during the fishy trips...but those are in the wee hours of the morning while we are resting up for other fun activities.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
