"C" is for cookie

that's good enough for me

 

"Cookie Monster" is also my favorite sesame street character -- well aside from "Oscar"

My crockpot thinger comes in handy the odd time but not for true braising. It does free up another burner! When I use my thinger I feel as though I am cheating.

The macarons do look sorta good, do they not?

I don't mind painting, I highly dislike removing old 70's wallpaper though. The paper comes off, but the glue underneath... <_<

 

Mac and cheese for me. B)

Another one having mac n cheese tonight. My 3 year old hasn't wanted to eat much of anything for the past 3 days and she asked for bunny mac n cheese (Annies) and buffalo chicken so I'm hoping that she will eat at least something.

When I was little, I didn't like much of anything (or would eat the same thing over and over again)

I ate PB and strawberry J sammies for lunch for 3 years straight, or so my Mom claims. 

 

Actually, Grover is my favorite muppet (Oscar is runner-up) 

 

Hey hey hey... Knock it off with all the mac of cheese chatter , please. Some of us can't have aged cheese right now.

yeah, yeah I know

 

"Go to Lowe's, buy some wood, build a bridge and get over it". Heard that one from Addy this week for the first time ( which is amazing considering I am old and thought I'd heard it all) and it made me "coffee snort " (as Ski says)

 

Armenian pizza tonight (what the heck is that? you ask) well, it's a savory pizza made with ground lamb, peppers,onions, tom paste  and herbs and I sub in the herbed Chebe dough for the flat bread my Gramma used to make. Works out fine.

 

And because we have had a sucky week, we deserve a treat so, vanilla and coffee ice cream for dessert. It's Sunday, after all!

Hey, that is what I looked like all weekend! I also need to take my own advice. I am currently (don't kill me) waiting for a huge dish of mac & cheese to come out of the oven. After I polish off the whole thing in about 2 days, I will follow that advice or at least attempt to. *sigh* Can I just say that life without cheese sucks? Someone may need to drag me to Lowe's kicking and screaming. :lol:

 

I also love Grover. I actually have a copy of The Monster at the End of the Book on my shelf. And no, I am not too old to read it just for fun by myself. :P

Addy, for temporary relief of the canker sores you're dealing with right now,

you might try some zinc lozenges. On the rare occasion I get one I hold the

zinc lozenge in my mouth right over the canker sore, two-three times a day.

Usually clears up in less than 48 hours. I've also found that 'normal people'

toothpaste sets off canker sores for me, so now I use Dr Bronner's minty

soap, one drop at a time from a dropper, to brush my teeth. Sounds weird,

but if it keeps me from getting those HORRENDOUS canker sores I'll keep

it up!!!

Thanks, Bun! I'm passing this on to my son. He has had some bad ones lately.

I forgot to mention, the zinc drop thing (I use the Zand brand) also totally

numbs the canker sore. It doesn't hurt to have the lozenge on it, it makes

it feel better almost right away and leaves it numb for a good half hour.

Zand makes an elderberry zinc lozenge, they're like little hard candies,

only good stuff in them, gluten free, and they're mighty tasty too!

Elderberry? Now you have my attention! My husband was at work all day and I am, quite frankly, high as a kite on lortab, so there was no going to the store for anything. No matter how medically relevant. I'm lucky I can walk to the kitchen. I will attempt to find some in the morning though when the drug store opens. Zinc has an interaction warning with my antibiotic though, so I have to limit its use probably. At least it is only a 3 day antibiotic. When it rains it pours I guess.

Do I need to remind you that you should take PRObiotics after this round of antibiotics, young lassie ? No, I didn't think so; you're no dummy.

 I can loan you an umbrella, Calamity Jane  (that was my nickname, but I am giving it to you) ;)

 

 

Dinner tonight will be burgers and sweet potato fries and if anyone wants to help us throw stuff into a dumpster,

c'mon over!

 

 

 

 

Look everyone! there goes SkiLisa taking some things to her Mom.

Hey! I haven't put anything in my eye for like... 3 days! Or done anything else stupid.

 

Tonight I am roasting my tomatoes to make sauce for pizza tomorrow. Since I can eat whatever I want whenever I want tomorrow. I also have roasted anaheim peppers and I'll roast some mushrooms. My husband doesn't eat tomatoes and I needed to use them up. Plus I have one last pizza crust in my freezer to use. Come hell or high water, I'll find a way to manage solid food tomorrow.

 

Dinner tonight for me is honeydew. I'm just not more ambitious than that.

 

Painting could have gotten me, cleaning up not so much. :P

Now,  QUICK!  throw salt over your shoulder, spit through your forked fingers and spin around twice and say "UnJinx, UnJInx, boing boing boing"

ok...done laughing and this is quite close to how i feel lately -- the men are calling me the bag lady --- because i'm constantly dragging gear in and out of the house -- none of it containing the all important item in this house --- FOOD  :P

 

Mondays are very long == so I am sitting in my comfy chair whilst hubby makes noise in the kitchen -- dinner will either be meatloaf or ribs -- think i heard breadcrumbs being made in the blender so my guess is meatloaf :)

Hi Dee Ho Good Neighbors....

 

Today was pretty darn good -- visited Mom early and did her PT with her until we can line up the professionals -- walked out her new front door to check out the neighbors gardens and then when home to begin procrastination of study -- second Biology Midterm -- how can you have two Midterms????  Should be Test #1, Test #2 and Final IMO....while procrastinating I accomplished quite a bit of cleaning and straightening of my patio -- cousin and her daughter arrive tomorrow for a few days and will be very nice to eat dinner out there.

 

Also added soil ammendment to my shopping bag heirloom tomatoes -- sadly my big plan for my vegie garden has taken a back burner to taking care of folks -- but I did purchase three heirloom seedlings a few weeks back and they now have oodles of little tiny tomatoes -- threw them in the shopping bag upside down growing method to get them planted quickly.  They are hanging happily in the sun on the patio.

 

Dinner tonight is pork country ribs with mac and cheese -- yep non-vegie sister thinks she can make it over today --- it will be wonderful to have her.

 

What is everyone having for dinner this evening???

holy crap!  am I sore. :blink: We started filling the dumpster today with our old beat up furniture and dusty old stuff that was in the
garage (3rd bay is devoted to all things CRAP  ). I tossed so many things that we're never going to use
(and it is not even worthy of the Salvation Army--that stuff has been put aside) 

There was so much wood the hubs had stockpiled for god knows what (building a freakin ark, dude?)
and all his junk in the garage and basement--I mean billions of nuts, bolts, all his bottles for making beer, etc. Tools out the ying yang.

OMG my husband is a certified hoarder.  I could not stop laughing at it all. He says he feels silly now to have saved some of it.

,,,cuz, everyone needs a coffee mug from every city you've been in for work and pleasure, right? er, NO!
Still have 1/3 of the thing left to fill and it will take another day or so. ugh.
I just keep saying "Soon, it will be over and it's one step closer to being where I want to be".

 

Dinner (and he's lucky I could do anything after all that) was:

 

Baked chicken

baked potato

corn.

 

simple. If I can lift my arm now to eat it, I'll be all set. :D

mondays and tuesdays i can usually count on eating alone so i get to 'play with my food' - last night was (rice) flour wrap with turkey, cheddar with peach salsa.  it was yums, so it will move on to round 2 where husband will be the guinea pig taster.  (round 4 is church lunch.  they can all have the cheap 'regular' tortillas :)

 

i have a 'flat-iron steak' marinating in some asian bbq marinade.  i got it pre-made, on sale and it has smoke flavoring in it - says GLUTENFREE all over the packaging and checked ingredients, but...............  i think my recipe is better :D  we'll see what the guinea pig says.  probly make some noodles - oh, and (lisa?) weren't you on a squash ribbon kick?  oh.  my.  BOB i did some zucchini with a vegetable peeler, and some red onion, too, and tossed them in a honey-mustard vinegarette oh, so good!!!  we woofed that stuff down!!!

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
