9,867 posts in this topic

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.

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

back to my chair

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! <_<

Happy Father's Day to any men lurking about this eve!!!

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:

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • 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.
