The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat
3 3

9,867 posts in this topic

I spent most of my day at the library with Clifford, Curious George and listening to a band singing math songs to classic rock songs (ex. Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith was Calculators) and then we took the girls for ice cream (soft serve blueberry...yum!!!). Anyway that meant a quick dinner of hot dogs on Udis buns with roasted garlic and sea salt chips and coleslaw (cabbage, carrots and apple with a honey mustard vinegarette).

Alex, that sounds like a perfect day to me!!!

I'm an "old school". dinosaur.  I  still like "holding" books while I read them and I like libraries. too  and I hope they do not become extinct in our techno world.

 

Dinner tonight will be roast pork with onions and garlic and baked sweet potatoes and maybe baby peas.

 

Taking the day off from physical labor. I'm pooped. :wacko:

Good Morning All!

Wonderful day yesterday except I flipped a kayak so my mobile is resting in the oven with hydrogen peroxide on its little connections - likely dead but hought id give it until tomorrow to spring back.

Cakes were awesome - cake makes everybody happy :)

Ive got several slices of each left - stop on by for a piece along with a cup of Jo!

Celiac results in celibacy --

Health reverses the process :D

Edit to add I kindle sucks - it changed ive words in my post - will hop back by when I get back to my laptop.

Libraries are awesome! Nothing can compare to the smell of one and while I have an ereader, which got me through some of the roughest times when I was so sick I could barely stand to hold even it, nothing can compare to an actual book. Of course, you can't get the classics for free on paper which was my primary reason for my ereader. I've read so many free books that I have far exceeded the cost of the thing, so although I rarely touch it these days I don't feel bad at all.

 

I'm feeling exceedingly lazy today. I may just tell my husband to eat whatever he wants and finish off my chicken pot pie. He has a stash of pizzas and there is that spare meatloaf if he feels like that would make him happy.

chili is chili-ing, perfect day for it as it has been raining for 2 days.  yesterday i made bette hagman's vinegar pie crust for the first time trying pie crust of any kind.  it's in the friger and it looks normal :)  i'm not sure whether i want to fool with it in front of the hubs - plastic wrap is not my friend.  but i may need someone to cut it off me should i become dangerously entangled.....  hmmmmm....

 

i has pie crust.  i am mad with power.  pie crust power, that is  ;)

I am not the only with saran wrap issues, I see. :lol:

 

Bette Hagman rocks! First woman of gluten-free baking. 

 

If you do not like her version for any reason, I HIGHLY recommend Peter and Kelli Bronski's pie dough recipe.

Flaky, light and rolls out like the real thing. Tastes awesome. 

 

When my Mom, the champion flaky pie crust maker of the family (besides my Gramma, her mother)

said to me last Thanksgiving  "omg, this is just like my mother's!" to me,

well, it was the proudest G F baking moment of my albeit short-thus-far G F baking career.

 

Let me know if you want to try it and I'll  type it out for you.

 

Enjoy that chili (I loves me some chili!)

:lol: skip the crust and just put a topping on it (like a crumble) and that would be good enough for me.

 

At any rate, i don't think the cabbage in that soup would go good with cake :lol:

I pulled my frozen meatloaf out today. Just not feeling like cooking. I'll think up some veggies for it and have an easy dinner. We've got some errands to run this afternoon and I'm paying a dear price for my indulgences last week. Plus, not feeling super has led to a wee pile of dishes over the weekend that I need to tackle today. :ph34r: I must have misplaced my magic wand.

I started a pot roast and veggies crock pot thinger (I love LOVE2TRAVEL's word) this morning before I went to the gym.

 

(yes, I went to the gym the day after major yard work, and after a week of heavy lifting and really, what the heck is going on here? Me, doing physical labor and not wanting to kill myself from the pain??!  Healing the gut, collagen supplements, change in diet, MT, PT..... and magic wands at work, I guess. whoohoo) 

 

and I have to say, I just returned and the house smells like YUM!!! :) Slow cookers are wonderful thingers. Karen was right!

 

If you find your magic wand, Addy would you kindly wave it over the rest of the garden for me. Make the leaves disappear?

I'd like to know who put that giant pin oak over my garden beds. I'd like to kick his butt.  Oh wait, I'm the doofus who put the garden beds

too close to the tree 16 years ago. duh.

My best friend who used to be my roommate has always complained that I made her fat while we were living together. How? My insomnia. How does my insomnia make other people fat? Well, things like tonight happen. When you are tired and can't sleep you get bored. When you are bored, you get hungry. When you grew up baking and are bored and hungry, you migrate to the kitchen.

 

I didn't actually bake tonight, but suddenly decided I couldn't live another moment without tapioca pudding. Not the kind that comes in a Jello pudding box, and not the kind that comes in a red box. The kind that comes from pearls that you stir for half a lifetime. I have to say that there is nothing in the world quite like a bowl of warm tapioca pudding late at night. I know what I'm having with my dinner tomorrow... if it lasts that long.

Dinner tonight is going to be escarole and white bean soup. 

 

Right after I finish cleaning the garden beds out. I'm on a mission....

Chicken stir fry, rice and veg.

I have been starving all day, I ate too many cashews.

My garden is a mess. If only we could do all the stuff we do when selling a house to the one we live in now. Mind you, me have visitors booked for 3 days next month, so have to get the spare room sorted by then...

I'm a brutal task-master and have no qualms barking orders and tossing out things. (hard to believe, given how delightful and sedate I am, isn't it?) Shall I come over?

yes, the end of the month we have family coming in - one spare room is 'ready' - we have alot to do.  plus, i can't get everybody to commit what exact day they are coming, so all my plans on who to put in which house/room are all up in the air.  on the up side, these plans will probably change one hundred times from now til then!

the tossing out things part!!  between me (sentimental) and hubs ("that might be good for something - we might *need* it")  we have a bunch of crap that, honestly, i would never go looking for or miss if it was gone.  it's the tossing out part we get stuck on!

Not I, not me. (I love doing that, did you notice?) LOL

I keep sentimental stuff too, but the stuff you have not used in five years? Never going to use it. Let it go.

Will soon be on a plane to Croatia. Dinner tonight will just be a snack as I have several billion excited butterflies in my tummy. Cannot wait for the wondrous seafood and fish from the Mediterranean! We will be frequenting the markets for fresh produce to cook in our charming outdoor kitchen, which is a far cry from our solid block of ice we call northern Canada. Snowing at the moment. Again! REDRUM, REDRUM, REDRUM. THINGER, THINGER, THINGER. Don't worry about me...bwah ha ha ha....

I had a blast using a paper shredder for 3 days. That thing is awesome!

The things "someone" had kept "JIC"...oy. Everyone needs receipts from 1984 right? :mellow:

I should talk, I had student grade sheets, letters, evals, etc. from just as far back. I kept some of them because they meant something to me

at the time. One read- through on a rainy afternoon and I had a good cry and a few laughs, put aside a chosen few (most importantly, the notebook of hand-written letters from the very first class I taught back in the stone age) and the rest, I shredded and chucked.

No regrets.

    • I doubt it. I would think that would be a questions for the company that make them.    But if smoking makes you feel bad....and you are able to quit for several weeks at a time....why go back to it?
    • Hi. I've noticed that after a break of smoking (2-3 weeks) I feel bad, when I begin to smoke again.  Maybe they contain some additives with gluten??
    • Thank you everyone! Good to know I am not alone with this. I am asking for a referral to a new cardio. Hopefully it will all go away the longer I am gluten-free. It started up in February/March after a gluten challenge and mostly vanished until July when I had a lot of shortness of breath. It absolutely was CRAZY just a few days after the glutening. I was gasping for breath and the beats were all over the place just walking through a parking garage and I was only mildy anemic at the time.   But it seems to "quiver" and do funny things for a bit still. I sort of theorized maybe it was inflammation in the heart because after this last glutening, my head felt like it was in a vice and my eyes would sting or get stabbing pain hurt (that is finally going away thankfully...knock on wood).  The head/eye pressure I learned also happens to my sibling who has celiac and his naturopath told him that sometimes the brain gets inflamed. Hopefully I can meet the new cardio soon and feel confident that he is taking me seriously. It is sort of difficult to feel confident in the opinion of a doctor that your ticker is ok when they are not really listening and end up making you cry. LOL. A friend of mine in the mental health field recently listened to my story of doc after doc and test after test and said that it was akin to the folk story of blind men describing an elephant. A group of blind men all feel one part of an elephant (tusk, tail, ear, tail) and then compare notes only to find they all disagree.  In some  versions they argue intensely. In other versions they have to collaborate and listen to each other in order to "describe" an elephant.    
    • Good afternoon! I am new to this board and fairly new to researching Celiac Disease, although I had a general idea what it was. My health has become a huge mystery to me, and it's one that I am desperate to solve. The biggest issue right now is horrible, life affecting fatigue. I have been dealing with it for several years now- as many as 5 to 6. It has gotten progressively worse, and nothing at all helps. Sleep apnea has been ruled out. Intestinal issues are something I have dealt with for almost two decades. I'm 45, but I've already had two colonoscopies as well as two endoscopies. My first endoscopy was as a child for persistent, severe stomach pain. My last colonoscopy and endoscopy was two years ago. The only thing that has come from those is an Irritable Bowel type condition and GERD, which is pretty bad. My bowel movements have always been crazy. They can be very normal and healthy to completely crazy. I've had periods of persistent diarrhea to occasional constipation, which is a fairly new thing within the last year. Last week, I went from having diarrhea that morning to hard, round balls of stool by that evening. My most common stools here lately, though, are not quite diarrhea, but more fluffy, large piles. Gas is an ongoing, daily issue for me. I have copious amounts of gas every day no matter what I eat or drink. Most of the gas in non-odorous but it can be very loud. I am currently on a total of 60 mg of Ritalin per day just to function. I often add energy pills, purchased from places such as GNC, because the Ritalin isn't working. Yesterday, I took both doses of Ritalin and two energy pills, and I passed out on the couch after work. I work from 7:30am to 3:30pm, and my work day is nothing too crazy. I try to keep very consistent sleep hours and could easily sleep to 1:00pm or longer if I don't have to get up for something. I sometimes have short periods of energy in the mornings, but that is usually over by noon. The quality of my life is greatly affected. I don't want to go anywhere or do anything because I am way too tired. I'm trying to keep up with my exercising, but that is also a struggle.  I have a history of clinical depression for practically all my adulthood, but it has been very well managed for the last four years. The fatigue is currently causing a great deal of depression, but it is very different from the clinical depression that I use to deal with. When I don't feel sleepy and tired, I don't feel depressed. When the fatigue sets in, I feel very irritable and sad. I realize that the stimulants can cause irritability, but I don't feel irritable or sad when I'm not feeling fatigued.  I've only recently began to explore that the fatigue and the intestinal issues could be related. I have always accepted that I have a sensitive, cooky digestive track. The increasing, unrelenting fatigue is what has lead me to exploring the possibility that everything could be related. I did have blood work last November. My doctor did not test for anything Celiac Disease specific, but she did do a Vitamin D, ferritin level and overall metabolic panel. All of that is normal. My thyroid level is also normal, and I do take thyroid hormone because I had half of my thyroid removed 11 years ago due to what turned out to be a benign thyroid tumor.  I just saw my doctor two weeks ago, and she increased the dosage of my Ritalin. That has not helped at all. She has never mentioned Celiac Disease to me before. I made an appointment for this Friday afternoon to talk about it, but I keep wondering if I'm even heading in a direction that makes sense. I decided to post here for some guidance. I'm sorry this has been so long. I'm not really into cutting something totally out of my diet just to see what happens. I also feel like that if I have something that is poisoning my system, I need a real clinical diagnosis of that. I feel like maybe I'm grasping at straws now and imagining a correlation that isn't there. I am not looking for a quick fix, but right now I have no idea what needs to be fixed. I am open to any information and/or suggestions. Thanks so much!   Jennifer
