Unexplained allergy-type reactions have prevented me cooking or eating several dinners this week -- very frustrating that the only thing that works for me is Benedryl and then it's off to snoozle-land for me.  Good thing my men cook too so I've had dinner for breakfast/lunch the past couple of days.

 

Tonight I am doing fairly well -- small reaction when I was out and about but seems to be ok with just inhaler -- so tonight will be tri-tip with garlic pasta and broccoli -- oh and left over pineapple mixed up cake from the other night.

Zippity Doo Daa!

 

I aced my Bio final even though I was falling asleep at my desk due to Benedryl to counteract the allergic-type reactions I've had this past week!!!  and I am such a PITA that the professor emailed me to tell me as he knew I'd be tracking him down to find out :D

 

Teaching the son to make chili got post-poned so we are about to do it right now for dinner tonight :)

Wooooohooooski!!!!!!!!

Isn't it great to be back?

Having my own little celebration here. Just got out my map and thread, and I walked 10 and a half miles today. As well as half a day volunteering. And watching The Great Gatsby. (I loved it. And I think I have an idea for a new cabana boy).

Hope you had seconds of that cake. You are just awesome.

wow! whoohoo for you too! 10.5 miles! kudos, lady! You're pretty awesome yourself. :wub:

 

welllll.........since we're reporting our "feats" today :D --I lifted 7,500 lbs. today (that's 10 strength-training machines, 75 lbs. X 10 reps) (SKI, check my math!) 

 

and biked 1.5 miles in 15 mins. and walked 1 mile  in under 20 mins..

Not bad for someone who could not even walk a block or tie her own shoes not long ago.

 

 

The GG is one of my top 10 all- time fave American novels and I hope I will enjoy it too. I usually like all the movies you like, so I expect I will.

Waaahooo right back -- what a fantastic day for you Mindwarp -- where about did your walk take you -- what did you see -- was the sun out there???

Confirmed 7500 pounds -- jeez Irish -- thought you were a bit tired from all the hauling!  and you walked and rode too -- these lungs of mine better be happy tomorrow so I can catch you two.

 

The cake turned into triple chocolate cake with peppermint buttercream frosting...the men hate it when I do that ;)

 

PS...the new GG is well -- pretty swell....saw it in 3D with youngest son and sister ... so it felt like we were partying right along with elite sponges that were entertained by JD.  I was re-reading the novel before the movie -- still have a bit to go...been juggling several books lately -- nice to have a brain that can follow more than one thread these days!

A bunch of fun women(and the occasional adventurous male) discussing pompoms, wine, final exams, NASCAR, robotics, their children, their boyfriends, their cabana boys, their asshat neighbors, wine, book and movie reviews, their crazy ass mothers-in-law, wine, cake disasters, lessons in Croatian, why arugula is both delicious and fun to say, the many ways to use bacon, the many ways to use cheese, adventures in kitchen mishaps,  (did I mention wine?), the weather, skiing, the news--good and bad, how crock pots saved the world, humidity and how it makes your hair curl and your hands swell, the absurdity of Canadian snow, why tomatoes are not fun a food group to lose, and all the endless encouragement for any victory, from the very small to the ginormous?

 

...oh, wait, you probably meant the ways our brains and bodies rebound off poison! yeah, baby, that's the coolest stuff!!!  :lol:

 

Dinner tonight:

A chicken on the counter-top rotisserie, steamed asparagus, taters for the hubs. It's too hot to spark up the oven and I just cleaned it and I want it spiffy and shiny.

 

Why, you ask?  our first potential buyer comes today. Called before the house was even officially on the market .

Why, you ask? I told you........... the asshat neighbors would gossip and the word would spread.....

okay, looks like I am talking to myself for 2 days here... :lol: hello? echo echo echo....

 

So, MW! I saw Gatsby today. (it's been pouring rain for 3 damn days,and since the hubs had no golf game, we thought

lunch and a movie made sense)

 

It was very true to the novel and wildly creative. Loved it!

 

Dinner is veggie pizza. It's Friday and I am lazy. :) 

 

I have been trialing fresh toms....so far, so good. whoohooo!

I have no idea yet what is for dinner. My husband is working tonight at the grocery store closest to home and I told him to surprise me. :ph34r:

 

Wednesday I woke up sick as a dog. Just nauseous and icky. I felt mildly better yesterday, until I had horrid pain in my lower right side which sent us to the ER. At this point I was like score, I get to have my appendix out... nope. Turns out that they have no freakin clue what the hell is wrong with me. They sent me home drugged up and it still hurts today, just not the curl up in a ball in bed and cry kind of hurt. They did a CT and found absolutely nothing that could cause this. So frustrating!

 

At least I'm a little less nauseous again today so eating won't be difficult to manage at all unless that comes back. (Which is good because the only manufacturer I could get in contact with today for generic zofran told me it is made of wheat and the name brand is like $75 with my insurance. Um.... I'd rather vomit.)

Yay!!! Pizza and movie date...sounds like a purr-fect Friday :)

 

Addie...feel better...glad you are less queezy!!!

 

We had surprise visit from my daughter and the grands....and the parents let us keep the kids all day...they haven't had a date day in over a year....we have had a blast....my men are wonderful uncles and now all are at the park while I prepare bathtime -- then I will hug them, my daughter and her hubby and send them on their merry way.... :D

 

oh dinner for the pipsqueaks was chicken, pears, asparagus and grilled cheese.  uncles are having street tacos that one made...hubby has money in his pocket for a rare gluten treat once he switches the cars back later.  hmmm...i think i will have wine.

Lately I have been eating this recipe a lot, because it is easy to make: in a pot you put some canned chickpeas, tomato sauce with sour cream mixed in, along with some spices (garlic powder, pepper, herbs, cumin etc.)

Then you just heat it up for a few minutes. I usually eat it with rice and kale.

Welcome DJS!

 

Nice to see a new face in this thread this morning -- come back often -- we mix chit-chat with what we are having for dinner.

 

Tonight the youngest is having an all nighter -- can't call them sleepovers when they are seniors in HS ;) 

 

Lots and lots of ribs, mac and cheese, broccoli and some sort of cake!

We had a lovely sunny but chilly day yesterday, and wednt with assorted family to the zoo. It quite a small one, with a lovely playpark. We all had a great time.

Lunch and tea were brown rice, boiled eggs, olives, salad leaves, tomatoes.

Addy, hope you are feeling better.

The more I think about Gatsby, the more I like it. Spectacular.

Grands sound fun ski :)

I would see Gatbsy again! shall we go next week? I love the roaring 20's

The closest I came was playing Flo the Flapper in a production of Good News. LOL 

 

Mw, Your day sounds lovely!!, 

 

It's been raining for days and days and if we still had all the wood we disposed of, we could build an ark. :blink:

People are coming to look at the house today and told the agent to make them take their shoes off. I am tired of wiping the floor

of assorted footprints..... and pawprints.(but that's our Bella's fault LOL)

 

Dinner will be bison chili because it's easy and can cook while I have to leave the house for this "showing".

People walking through my home feels "creepy"--especially when it's the jerkface neighbor's family coming to gawk.

I am not pleased, but the hubs says "who cares? their money is green....". I do not share this logical wisdom.

Movie Date!!!

 

We all go at the same time wherever we are....hmmm across the pond could make this complex...but would be cheaper for me as I would get the before noon discount!!!  Ok...maybe we shoot for the same day -- what's the next "girlie" movie coming out?  I'll check....or we could do a book club --- maybe start with some oldies, but goodies and give everyone plenty of time to read!

 

Last night turned to steak night for eight men and two ladies...I bonked feeding 7 eighteen year olds all day -- so I bought a huge top sirloin roast that hubby carved into steaks -- bibity bobity steak for 9 on a shoestring.

 

Tonight will be ribs...they are soaking in pineapple juice as I type...slow roast then finish on the BBQ.

Cauliflower Fried Rice

Asparagus

Lemon "Brownies" -- stupid name for something similar to lemon squares....

 

Happy Sunday Everyone :)

Any one make some good baked beans. The kind you put bacon or ham in? I think I can buy some from a local BBQ restaurant but I haven't checked the gluten-free status from them today.

    • 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.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
