The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

My dinner plans have been amended thanks to laziness and brilliance. The laziness is mine, the brilliance is not. I will have caprese salad because I don't want to make my own pizza crust, garlic roasted chicken breasts and something vegetable-ish I'm sure. I'm sure the goat cheese will survive until I can get some crusts ordered, they only takes a few days to get here. I suppose plan B will have to be more mint chocolate chip ice cream. Such a burden! :lol:

Oh you know... some random person who I was emailing about my laziness and pizza crust. :P I would never come up with ideas that great on my own, I need people like you to do that for me. :D

My basil plant is going nuts, :D (but the pineapple mint and chocolate mint are even crazier--wow!)

 

so while I was in the  pool, I decided to make this tonight instead:

 

spaghetti in lemon cream and basil

Irish, that sounds sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo sublime. 

 

I sent you an email but how are you doing this morning, my dear girl?

Last night we added a bit of basil too.

 

Salmon grilled with Basil Aioli

Rice with chopped Basil

Steamed Broccoli 

 

Brownies with Coffee Ice Cream and Vanilla Whipped Cream for the family -- Laundry Room/Master Closet flood for me - Yay -- off to the laundry mat to dry everything...Hubs will take care of the dishwasher/plumbing issue after work this evening -- boys get to do dishes from family dinner for 8 peeps last night -- campground style...hmmm guess they could do them in the tub rather than the back yard -- we'll see how I feel by the time I start barking orders at them ;)

I guess its basil season. :)

 

I have no idea what is for dinner, probably frozen burgers and more corn. (Cause I still have some.) I am not having a good day. Hubs doesn't have to go in to work until mid-afternoon so we went to the kitchen to get some brunch. He looks out in the yard and notices a hose in on in the grass... then sees we have INCHES of standing water in our corn. :angry: My MIL's husband apparently decided to just turn the hose on and leave it laying in the grass for no apparent reason for God knows how long to get that much water on our corn which is probably 40 feet from where the hose was. He made some excuse about thinking there was an end on the hose. Whatever. So we go about making our brunch while we talk about what to do and then he goes and starts DIGGING AT THE WATER WITH A BUCKET! More :angry:!!! Corn roots grow out, not down. It's like he's trying to kill it on purpose. So I went out and yelled about that.

 

So we decided to go out and bail like a sinking ship. Hubs used the new deep area that will probably result in at least two definite losses to get full cups of water, I was stuck in another row with a turkey baster sucking at the not as deep water. (Who knew turkey basters are garden tools?)  In our desperation I never noticed I was getting warm, then hot. Suddenly I was too hot. Full on heat reaction, fun times. <_<

 

So dinner... yeah. Assuming I cook at all will probably be frozen burgers and corn. Cause they take no effort. If I had the strength to do more than sit right now I would probably strangle someone. I don't even have enough energy left to sustain being pissed beyond all reason.

Lisa and Adaliade,  (((   ))) hugs to both of you.  I hope everything turns out alright.  

 

For dinner here in the deep, hot, south, we had hummus on cucumber rounds, romaine lettuce with chilled smoked chicken and a lemon juice and oil dressing.  Desert was water melon balls.  Irish sidekick had some redskin potato salad too.  He cannot have a meal without spuds.

So today I'm dealing with the physical fallout of the heat crap. Fun times. Oh well, in for a penny... mac and cheese for supper. I am completely out of craps to give. I know how stupid this is, I just don't care right now. (I'll probably care later... or tomorrow. Oh well. I've vowed not to bitch.) I'll probably just cook a burger or chicken breast or some such with it for myself and find something green. Maybe a brussel sprout or green bean.

 

I made the mistake last week while at the store of noticing Prego now makes a bacon alfredo sauce and then sending a pic to my husband. He came home with a jar last night and decided that would be his dinner tonight. I stopped reading the ingredients at soy something-or-other, but he is welcome to enjoy it.

When it rains it pours right? Yesterday the fridge decided to have a fit and went out for a while. Just enough to make everything need to be thrown out. There were a few things that were frozen that could be saved by either cooking or using in the next few days because they're thawed, but it was a lot of food thrown out. <_< Oh well I guess, I have a better safe than sorry attitude with food safety. Looks like I'll be making strawberry jam tomorrow.

 

We're working on a huge project today, redoing our bunny's condo. Once that is done we'll try to put together our new grill if I can hack that. If we can, we'll grill some burgers outside for dinner. If not, I may just drag him to In N Out for dinner. Or pizza. Or something else easy.

I made a pizza with all sorts of delectable (and unctuous - Irish, that's for you!) toppings and smothered it in cheese.  Mmmmm....

I sent you an email but how are you doing this morning, my dear girl? 

 

It was delicious. I was not ignoring you, sweets....I simply could not get on the site. Some computer glitch and I did not want you to think I was being rude. I did answer you via email, but you may not have seen it yet. And, I seem to have rallied from the bites, their treatments and I was going to say all's well, except the hubs got a tick bite too. Epidemic in upstate NY this year. Even the doctor had one.

Irish men and their potatoes. Got one here too. :D

unctious!! love that word.

 

Dinner last night was pizza here, too. Not sure if it was unctious, :D but it was delicious. Carmelized red onions, bacon, an olive oil baste with garlic, 3 cheeses, fresh diced toms from the farm nearby, basil.  

I confess that I do not make the crust. My friend with the gluten-free bakery does. It's just fabulous.

 

It's usually our Friday night treat but we're having company on Friday, so it got moved to last night. Working on that menu in my head,

 

Tonight, black bean and turkey chili.

 

Do not want to get too excited, but it seems I can have small amounts of aged cheese, toms, & bacon and not have a plethora of symptoms....so, whoohoo!??  :) still a few things that bug me, (soy flour, eggs for example) but meh....I work around them.

Still plenty to eat. Just ask my thighs.

Hi All...not Merry Sunshine here of late -- the flood turned into major plumbing project that we have been putting off for years...today we'll decide if we are going to crack open the foundation -- my vote is no -- temp fixes last several years around here and I'd like to put it off for a bit longer until we can remodel properly -- ie when I have an income once again.  

 

And to heighten the fun I had another severe allergic reaction on Tuesday -- no idea what caused it -- well crazy theories but nothing I can prove....so am now on more prophylactic allergy meds which in and of itself makes me cranky.  

 

So dinner has been food -- dishes still being done in the bathroom -- I'll be back once the kitchen is functional and the frogs have cleared outta my head from whatever got me!!

 

Until then - stay cool and makes something yummy I can drool over when I check in ;)

I'm working today and managed to find a few minutes to get a pork roast in the crock pot before I got out the front door. Two ears of corn left in the house and maybe I'll manage something greenish too. 

 

Electricity is out in the common area here, so even though I brought my lunch, it didn't do me a bit of good without a working microwave. So, punting for lunch meant a quickie trip to In N Out. No complaining here.  :lol: Although I didn't have time to waste waiting around all afternoon for them to grill me onions so I had to do without.  :(

 

I think we're gonna put you in a bubble until you can knock off this being allergic to everything thing. You'd probably just decide to be allergic to yourself though...  :P

You can deposit your frogs here to get rid of them.

We've been discussing some sort of breathable but somehow water cooled underoos. Like the opposite of thermal underwear. It would have to be long pants and sleeves, but that is fine by me because I need to be protected from the sun. Still stinging like hell from a rash on my thigh yesterday. Apparently I never learn.  <_< I saw the line of traffic and was like omg this is gonna be baaaaaaaad. If I had my new backpack earlier in the day, Rainbow Dash could have saved me.

Lol....we have sketches of that type of garment too!  I've been dealing with this heat dealio for a long time -- since I was a kid really -- just got worse each decade.

Well some of us need imaginary internet boards to the head to realize our "dealios" with things. :P Some people might call me stubborn. (My husband might subscribe to this thinking.) I like to think of myself as steadfast, it sounds more virtuous. :D

I could eat a Greek salad every night and not complain. YUMSTERS!!!

 

I wish I could cook my butt off, too.  :lol:

 

Anyone who says "I went on a gluten-free diet to lose weight"...isn't truly one of us.  

 

 

Hey, we could do all of SKI's dishes and work off some butt- age.

Amen to that!!

 

I've had several people ask me about gluten free to lose weight because of the "Wheat Belly" book or a DR told them to go by this book!!! "This sounds like what you do"  UGH!!!!! I told them all okay, sure, I'll help you, I went gluten free and gained 40 pounds! I'm gluten free! Allergy free! Sorry, Its a thorn in my side.

 

On another calm note :) I'm having a simple baked potato and some chicken broth. Not feeling so good lately. I make black beans with jalapeno pepper, green onions, fresh garlic, and cumin. I do okay eating this with rice. Two days ago I added some gluten-free corn chips!! Not a good idea....I keep thinking I can slip corn in there.

Happy Friday Dinner Peeps!

 

Woke ready to say good riddance to one crap week!

 

Have already been cooking large batches -- for me.

 

Basil Almond Pesto

Cilantro Dressing

Carrot Garlic Sauce

 

Until I get clear from whatever has been causing my issues this week I am back to meat/fish with either zuccini curlz, spaghetti squash or sweet potatoes for every meal -- miscellaneous veggies added in for color and variety.

 

Will continue to post what I prepare for the family -- but for me I am set for the next week or more : )

 

Off to ride my bike before the sun gets too high in the sky.

 

Happy Friday :)

    • Thank you so much guys. Reading that last response and those from forum members who seemed to be mind-bogglingly sensitive to gluten at times helps me feel like less of a freak  Perhaps worse than the symptoms themselves was my fear that I'm the only person on earth who has gone through this and that if it continues, I will end up with all of my friends and family washing their hands of me because it would look to them like I'm the only one with this and so I must be crazy. It's really good to hear that the sensitivity can go down too. I've been holding onto this idea through the tough times, reminding myself that I also had really bad hayfever for a few years, and asthma at a different time and they both got better.  It has been a whole month since I had a bad reaction to gluten. It has also been two weeks since I even had a small reaction and I'm feeling SO much better. I'm still going to take every precaution I can but this feels worlds away from how it was. At my most risk averse, I had a day on holiday where I only ate bananas and avocados because I could eat them without them having been touched by human hands, even my own! (This was straight after getting sicker and sicker and hunting down what it was that made me ill. I found the refill bottles of soap in the house where I was staying and read that they had wheat in them - not an airborne reaction I imagine but when I washed my hands to prepare food it was probably contaminating my food. Plus because I didn't speak the language, I couldn't be sure the new soap I bought was gluten free.) Now, I am still avoiding environments with lots of gluten and staying clear of all grains, with the exception of rice which I reintroduced using the food challenge method as directed by my dietician (since I understand that rice is, according to Dr Fasano, the lowest risk of gluten contamination of all the grains) and I am building my weight back up. My husband has been able to see also that the last time he cooked gluten in the house was the last time I got ill. So it is reassuring for him to see that the sacrifice he is making is making such a difference to me. I also took the advice about new cooking utensils - thanks! I have my fingers crossed for me. I want this better health to continue but right now I'm happy to know that there is a break in the clouds and to know that I can feel like me again. Good luck to everyone, sensitive or not, who gets into a bad place with managing their reactions. Hang on in there!        
    • I'm not sure I just had the endoscopy, and I've had a  songram. 
    • Thanks and I'm seeing a doctor in three months may have to make it sooner.    Thanks for all the replies.
    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol
