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.

    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
