Doh.....was all set to hop back in my lil pool to float but thot I'd check what's for dinner and now I am drooling over oysters being served 3000 miles away and swatting my poor kindle!!! Actually thought a bug got under the glass Cuz I'm outside and feeling a bit of the ebbys all day thanks one tick that bit my buddy and bedbugs discovered in the apt next to sis today while I was on a MoveOut preinspection....creepy crawlys go away!

So this morning started off shitty when happy hubs woke up with a severe case of the grumps -- so I rode his/my bike a bit longer as I knew his primary bike is in the shop -- gave him time to understand he woke in a bad mood....all good now.

Last night we had spaghetti with some yummy crockpot sauce I let simmer all day --- it had herbs from my patio that I have not killed yet - in fact they are thriving!

Tonight is bbq chicken with baked beans - the simple bushes/maple syrup/red onion topped with bacon ones and corn for the guys...zucchini for me.

Almost talked myself outran the crab cakes....as I was being grumpy as I cannot do crab....buy picked up the ingrediants today...hope mine turn out close to that picture -- should make the three dads over here tomorrow happy :)

Edited....damn kindle turned shitty to shifty.

 

Hahaha I hate those automatic spell corrections. It just makes you swear more when they auto-correct your swearing!

Great news, I  can almost use my right hand again. Turns out the rapidly spreading horrid pain I developed on Thursday started spreading to my arm, neck, then my foot and up my leg. Then, my right lower back/near buttock was burny..so, I use a hand mirror to look backwards at myself in the mirror--not easy checking your self out back there...and I've got a good sized tick bite Bullseye rash going.

 

Aha..... that explains the creeping paralysis and throbbing digits....country living whoohoo!

Have to take the dreaded antibiotics for 14 days (no choice) and so my appetite is off. Plus, I feel kind of weird. 

 

cockroach-smiley-emoticon.gif

 

damn bugs

 

SKI..crab cakes look drooly good

Addy enjoy your toes and the food fair

MW look what you started

Arlene....please pass the oysters. 

 

Dinner is probably going to be whatever the hubs can whip up easily. I marinated the chicken for him at least.

Going to rest now. ANTIBees make me feel like yuck. 

Oh, horrors!  Ticks are loathesome.  I found one on me, too, but it didn't eat me.  Feel better soon, K?  That little bug thinger is too cute for a tick!  Just where on earth do you people find these awesome emoticons? 

 

Dinner was tediously uncreative.  Still out in the country housesitting so I made do with my Bolognese with which I made meat nachos.  Will go into town again tomorrow to do some more cookin'.

It does indeed. I am thick in the head too from the tick  bite infection and the meds, so...We're a pair !

 

thick as thieves, as it were. :)

 

Dinner tonight will be whatever combo I can make from the grilled chicken and peppers last night (feta, olives, toms,arugula  maybe??) and roll it in a warmed tortilla wrap.

 

That's the best I  can do. ta da

I have managed today to hobble around enough to water my garden and get a second load of laundry into the washer so far. I discovered that much to my surprise and although pineapple should be safe from a tyramine standpoint, that last night it made me pretty instantly half blind. And I thought I was testing my histamine limits! Joy. <_<

 

I think for dinner we'll do burgers on arepas if I can talk myself into arepas tonight. Some corn or green beans or maybe cornbread if I don't do arepas. I don't know but I'm sure I'll think of something that resembles a vegetable. Other than that a significant amount of R&R and enough anti-histamine tea to drown an elephant is on my menu today. And maybe a home mani so my fingers don't feel so naked when I look at my toes. ^_^

Mr Mindwarp made roast chicken today with sweet potatoes for me, even though it's father's day.

I am just nearly getting over migraine, and am awash with forms and math tests (not my forte) so excuse me if I am a bit incoherent.

The boys are handling the steak, corn and salad -- I will attempt those beautiful crab cakes.

 

Also in the bag -- I made soft triple choc brownies -- then whipped vanilla ice cream with some extra vanilla to top the brownie...sitting in the freeze...planning on whipping some cream then drizzle carmel sauce == but thinking a sauce out of kalua would be awesome -- depends on how grumpy I am in an hour after an attitude adjusting float ;)

 

just looked up recipe for coffee syrup....brownie/ice cream pie WITH coffee syrup - yep -- that should improve everyone's mood around here!

I should just come live with you. You always have chocolate and I always have somewhere to pack in the chocolate.

 

I decided on corn spoon bread with our burgers. I left out the green onions because my husband doesn't like them. Turns out he doesn't like corn spoon bread at all! <_<

8000 posts? Who knew I could possibly talk that much? (watch it, you wiseacres!!.)

Victoria sponge cake and chili chocolate cake sounds heavenly.

A piece of each please! Chocolate issues be damned!

 

The sun is out (you know, that bright round thing in the sky?) but I cannot partake of it too much because of this stupid medicine :ph34r: Directions say I'm supposed to hide from it. (curses, you little tick!) so I may try the gym again. My bones and muscles are really sore. Wish I had a hot tub. Wish I had a hot tub.

Wish I had a hot tub. (chanting here in hopes the genie hears me)

 

Anyhoo, another set of gawkers coming to look at the house tonight.

 

I've got bison chili going in the crock. That should smell inviting. I made cookies last time and it smelled like cinnamon.

Maybe these peeps like spicey? I've got St. Joe in the ground upside down, according to those who know this magic house selling stuff.

 

Hey, I'll try anything once. The things I like, I do them twice, thrice, etc.Happy Monday. Check ya later, peeps.

Party? Cake? I'm on my way!

 

Or we can party at my house. There is a hot tub in the back yard. One I can not use because when I get out my blood pressure take a nose dive off a cliff and I pass out. <_<

 

I have no idea what I'm going to make for dinner. I was going to make a roast but didn't think to get it out of the freezer until yesterday so I guess that is tomorrow's dinner because I'm sure it is still solid enough to murder with. I'll think of something I'm sure.

that's a bona fide sin down here!  i have a really good recipe (but i think everybody likes it because it's more like dessert lolz)  it's like custard on the inside with a crunchyish outside.

 -- so the hubs can come too -- if he carries all your shit :)

reminds me of that joke - attributes of women:  kind, considerate, sympathetic, helpful, blah blah blah

attributes of men:  can carry heavy shit  :)

 

8000 posts? Who knew I could possibly talk that much? ahem...no comment...not me....

POTENTIAL BUYERS!  i'm sure she meant to say POTENTIAL BUYERS!!!   :huh:

    • 3 months gluten-free still feeling cramps
      Glad to help!   Never stop advocating for your health.  Be patient (that's the really hard part), but it is possible to feel well and recover from celiac disease.  Of course, you'll always have to avoid gluten as if it were rat poisoning, but there are worst things to worry about!    It is nice to have a resource like Celiac.com.  It is anonymous, so you don't have to be embarrassed about asking what you may think are dumb questions.   Hang in there!  
    • Ghirardelli Chocolate Chips
      Well, that is just wheat. Their bars/squares might be wheat free, as well, but the culprit there is barley.    Also I just got this reply: For legal reasons the information that has been provided is the only information we are authorized to provide you with.  To reiterate, our products are not certified as being gluten free. FDA requires products to be tested to confirm that gluten level is below 20ppm. Currently, Ghirardelli products have not been tested to this requirement and therefore, we do not make any gluten free claims for our products. Sincerely,  Ghirardelli Consumer Services
    • Ghirardelli Chocolate Chips
      They seem to be good about saying things may contain wheat when their products are made on shared equipment, for example their ground chocolate which I no longer use.   This is the reply I got a year ago (March 2015) when asking about their 60% cacao chips. "Dear Consumer, There is no wheat in our 60% chips and no wheat in our chips facility, as such, no wheat is run on the same line as any of our chips. Sincerely, Consumer Affairs Response Team"  
    • 3 months gluten-free still feeling cramps
      Thank you so much for the info, I did replace all my cooking wares and I did just recently stop dairy (about 3 weeks ago). I guess I have to keep it going, thank you once again, this give me more courage to continue my quest in feeling better.
    • Ghirardelli Chocolate Chips
      Hey guys,  I emailed Ghirardelli to ask about their updated allergen information because I had heard that people stopped recommending most of their products. I was specifically asking about their chocolate chips because my understanding is that they are free of gluten and not made on the same lines as that one bar/square that contains barley. This is what I received back:
      "Thank you for contacting Ghirardelli Chocolate Company.  We appreciate your interest in finding out about the ingredients in our products and your interest in a gluten free product.

      At this time we do not offer any "gluten free" products, but appreciate your interest in seeing whether Ghirardelli offers one.  Our products are not certified as being gluten free. FDA requires products to be tested to confirm that gluten level is below 20ppm. Currently, Ghirardelli products have not been tested to this requirement and therefore, we do not make any gluten free claims for our products. Please reference the ingredient information, on our packaging for any Ghirardelli product that you are interested in, to determine if it is suitable for you.

      Please know you are a valued consumer and we do appreciate your interest in our products.

      Sincerely,

      Consumer Affairs Response Team"   I asked them to please clarify - are your products testing over 20ppm? Or you don't test them at all? I also asked about the lines that the chocolate chips are made on because the ingredients do not indicated any problems. The customer service rep sent me the exact same message back with one of the lines underlined. I emailed again, and they don't seem to want to disclose any more information.   Has anyone else had any luck talking with them lately? Insights on the chocolate chips?
