OMG I have this great image of you loading the cart, sunglasses on ,...music from a spy movie....lobster tails hanging out of every trench coat pocket, sticking out of your shirt where you have shoved them down there face first.......and speedily checking them out at the self-check register before the frozen food dept. manager realizes his magnificent blunder........and running to the parking lot..

 

yes, BECAUSE I'M SO NON-CHALANT LOLOLZ!!!  (i felt like lucy ricardo - quick, honey, create a diversion!!)   :lol:

 

my hubs is convinced that the 'fish boy' has a thing for me - remember the $2.99 lobsters?  ;) same guy...

non-chalant and graceful, I am sure!! 

Addy...we've got another Lucy Ricardo here! :D

 

yes, I remember fish boy. I have "meat counter guy" myself.

He actually looks past others and asks me what I would like today? (even when I am not first in line)...he told me 15 years ago that he likes me best because the first time I came in,  I asked "May I have...." instead of

"GIMME a".. and he was so grateful someone asked him politely for once. Made me sad he felt so mistreated.

 

I was stunned back then by that comment and I still am today. Why wouldn't anyone say "may I have..."??

Thanks Everyone!

 

Just for kicks my silly body decided to flare two evenings in a row....no more experimenting for me for a while -- lol...I mean no more experimenting with foods.....  :P (need a little blushing dude).

 

Anyhoo....another rain check for dinner date...thinking it may be tomorrow afternoon if my evenings keep us guessing.

 

I'm a "Lucy" too -- must be another one of those unpublished Silly Symptoms ;)

 

Dinner tonight is....hmmm...wtf is dinner tonight....oh I know:

 

Baked Chicken

Sweet Potato Fries -- three colors :)

Carrots

 

and the good old Chocolate Mousse for dessert

 

thinking a trip to the Farmer's Market to make things a bit more colorful for the next few days will help.

 

Happy Friday to all!!!  That looked much cheerier than I am...will work on it!

((hugs)) and sorry you had to postpone for now, Ski but I know you will come out of this and be back riding your bike very soon, honey!!

 

Dinner on Fridays is always golf day, so that means pizza, but not today .....as I too, have had a few bumps lately  so

I am KISSing myself  (keeping it simple stupid) so I can also feel as good as I was feeling pre-glutening, pre-tick bite, pre -inflammation.

 

Looks like: 

baked chicken

sweet potato fries

carrots

 

Oddly,that is what I have in my fridge/pantry, too!.

 

:D

Here's one for you....I go outside to rescue a chipmunk who has caught himself up in the netting around the blueberry bushes

that is there to keep the birds away.  He has gotten the netting wrapped around his neck and his legs--like he is hogtied.

And he is squealing like mad.

 

I go back inside, grab scissors & run  (I know, I know ) and get him partly undone, but it is a terrible mess of tangled webbing and it's choking the poor thing. Okay. I can do this.

 

I have to cut the ones that are wrapped around his neck somehow. Not easy. there are several plus his feet are bound...and he's wriggling like mad.

 

I work as quickly as I can, but he keeps doubling his body over into a ball. Just as I almost get the feet done, the little shit bites me

on the left index finger!

Breaks the skin, too . He hobbles towards the back --the forest area...me, chasing like a dope because I want to help this little thing.

 

I grab him again...NOW I put the stupid glove on (duh!) and I get the legs almost undone...it was an epic struggle to get this thing to hold still, but I can't get the one around his neck cut before he bolts into the woods.

 

.....where I am forbidden to go because I just got the tick bite and the rash.

 

I could never catch him anyway..he's gone in a flash. I start to cry because I am sure he will not live with that around his neck. I almost had it... damn.

 

Hubs is headed for the golf course and his phone is off ( an hour away) so I relay a message to his pal to have him call me.

I am an hour away from the urgent care center and my doc is on vacation....so, I wash and clean the wound (this is not my first time cleaning a wound, lets just say)...Okay, think....tetanus booster was 2004. good --under 10 years --- but I'm probably gonna need another one....good news is, the urgent care doc calls me back to say "no worries, tomorrow is soon enough". Oh boy, that shot will freeze up my deltoid muscle for a few days. arrgh.

 

 

The fun never ends in Lucy Ricardo land. <_<

I am laughing my ass off....sure wish you hadn't got bit....but you running with scissors after this poor little dude is a visual I will not soon forget!

 

Thank you for sharing!!! 

 

Sure hope the shot doesn't lock you up too much -- darn that wild life is keeping you hopping - literally -- just imagine how quiet your life will be in Florida -- you may need to be thinking about joining the Marine Rescue Unit -- only partially kidding...you'd be great at it :D

Look on the bright side, at least chipmunks aren't a rabies risk. So, it could be worse I guess.

 

And yes, the visual of you running across your yard with scissors is quite hilarious. I needed a laugh today. :lol: (Not just because it is a bad day, but because I'm at the end of a book I've read before and I know what happens and I'm about to lose a very dear friend... it doesn't become any less heart wrenching no matter how many times I read it. I'll cry like a baby and I'm putting it off as if that will save him.)

 

My husband brought home some cheddar bacon bratwurst last night that he wants tonight. So, that is for him. I have no idea what I'm having. With the kind of day I'm having I may just grill a burger and some lettuce. Just... one of those. <_<:angry::wacko: I shoulda stayed in bed.

wish I had a video of me trying to wrestle that chipmunk and saying "come on little dude, I am trying to help you... fah cryin out loud!

my Bostonian comes out when I am all agitated.

 

of course, I wish I had video of me rescuing the chiipmunk my Maeve (previous cat) had in her mouth in OUR LIVING ROOM (that chipmunk's eyes were the size of saucers)LOL  ..or the many birds that flew inside or the bat I caught in the fly swatter and brought outside while 2 men stood there quaking in their boots...or when I yelled at the bear on my front porch who had my bird feeder in his paws (but first, I got the camera and snapped his pic!)...or the neighbor's herd of cows who came to graze on my lawn...or the neighbor's horses we drove home by whipping the dog's leashes in the air like a cowboy...all the way up the road..or the time I held up a snake to show my Mom and she almost fainted....lots of adventures here in paradise. Gonna miss it.

 

But, they have a sea turtle rescue and a marine wildlife center down there that needs volunteers ..... :)

When my oldest daughter was 6 she chased me around my mother's yard with a snake. I was probably shrieking like a little girl, all I actually remember was the panic. I ran in the house and my mother forbid her to bring the snake in the house. What is up with little girls and snakes? EWWW!!!!

Too hot to cook inside.  I almost wish there was still some snow left to roll around in!

Since there isn't, we are grilling:

 

Juiper-Brined Pork Tenderloin with Spicy Apple Glaze and Apple Chips

Baked then Mashed Mango Whisky Sweet Potatoes

Apple Cider Vinegar et. al. Slaw

Blueberries (aren't grilling those tiny suckers!)

We had chicken parm and steamed green beans with almonds.

I love chicken parn, I don't know if I want to make my own breadcrumbs or what. Feel free to give me any suggestions if you have anybody

Too hot to do any cooking in or outside, I might make a chicken, pizza with some bacon. Or do a beef taco with refriened beans.

I am four months into living gluten free. When the doctor first told me I have celiac he said it takes time for the small intestine to heal. Can anybody elaborate on this?

Thanks guys! You all are amazing

Oh yes, W8! We are very cute!

Hub said he would be home and grill. Asked 17 yr old....." I don't care. It s all good". 20 yr old " burgers!". So we had burgers - we mix the very lean hamburger with BBQ sauce. Then really good corn on the cob - peel, butter and wrap in foil & grill. Ore Ida crinkle fries in the oven! Forgot I was going to put carrot sticks on everyone's plate!

HOLY KRAP!  lolz you are killin' me!  (ya know, those chipmunk things are at the bottom of the food chain.  hawks and owls are high-fiving....)  what a funny story, irish - but don't be too heartbroken - there's probably 30 more waiting for their shot at the blueberry bush ;)

breadcrumbs are easy (but not cheap loolz - i must be celebrating hubs' b-day too much tonight with crappy redbridge lolz i keep chickening out of the wine spritzer idea!

i use the bread ends from udi's or rudi's or even bread i didn't like because of the texture or whatever, i will save and just dry out in the oven a little, then zip them around in the mini-choppa.  if i want panko-ish breadcrumbs, i don't dry out the bread very much, get them to the choppa!  <see what i did there, a little arnie humor yuk yuk  ^_^ )  they will chop a little bigger because they're still a little moist then i put them back in the oven on a sheet pan for a few minutes till they're dried.  i am the queen of improvise lolz if i can't make it, i can fake it   ;)

 

ps - i have also bought gluten-free breadcrumbs but they were 'wierd' - like one kind was all ground up seeds and whatnot, one kind was very obviously 'corny', etc, but depending on what you're making, some of these might work for different recipes.  i like plain jane from gluten-free bread - then i can add whatever i want (italian seasoning, garlic, whatever) depending on what i'm shooting for :)

don't ya love that?  what do y'all want for dinner????????  no matter how many warm bodies were in the house, the answer was always:

 

FOOD.

 

what kind of food???????????

 

THE KIND YOU EAT.

 

at least you got a pretty good idea lolz - maybe i should ask your 20 what he wants then make it here hahahahaaa!!   :)

 

edited to add:  did you ever grill the corn right in the husks?  we trim them (pull off dry outer husks, cut off top silk)  soak them (sometimes) in water or salt water, (sometimes not) and put them right on the grill.  so sweet, delicious and juicy you don't need any butter or salt.  just peel and eat  :)

Irish, you'll have plenty of critters in Florida, but you won't need to rescue chipmunks!!  (You can grow blueberries though!)

 

I made red beans and rice with lots of veggies in the pressure cooker.  Served that over rice with grilled bratwurst and salad.

    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
