If you go to the store to buy fresh mint it is $3-4 for a teensy bit, I figure I have easily $100 worth of mint in my yard right now. And it is probably 500 kinds of illegal to sell it. <_< We have a market here that sells things like that, but there is all sorts of licensing and crap. At least once I have it as extract and oil it will be far easier to use. Heck, I can even use the oil to just make the house smell good. ^_^

Got a text yesterday afternoon asking me to sub today. Sure, what could possibly go wrong working on a Monday right? Well it turns out I hadn't left my house all weekend, not since Friday, so I didn't know what was waiting for me out front when I left my house. I was all set to head off to work this morning and hopped in my Jeep only to realize there was something poured all over the driver's side of my windshield.  <_< Looked like soap, stoopid teenagers. I flipped on my wipers and figure I may run out of fluid but this will only take a few minutes and it'll clean right up right? Nope. It was soap poured over motor oil poured over polyurethane. You have got to be f'n kidding me right?  :angry: The worst? Even though I know who did it, the cops said that unless the stupid bitch outright admits to it there isn't a damn thing they can do about it.  :angry:  :angry:  :angry:

 

So, instead of showing up to work at 7:30 like I'm supposed to. I was leaving my house at 7:35. I can not even say in words how hard it is to get that crap off of a windshield. Plus I really wish I had an outlet for my anger right now. Instead of being able to headshot a few guys in Fallout and watch them pop cleanly off so I can feel better I am smiling and helping students and being polite, which while this positively angry makes me just a little dead inside. 

 

So... dinner? Psh... l-e-f-t-o-v-e-r-s. I'll make some gravy, pour it over some warmed up roast and veggies. Maybe I'll cook up some squash or something as a late night snack. I've got a couple of teensy little yellow beauties to eat.

that is BULLSH!T - i'd be bustin' some heads.   :angry:  :angry:  :angry:  :angry:

 

most people around here are afraid of us.  that's the way we like it.  (plus my hubs 'boyfriend' <"your boyfriend is texting you"< is the mayor lolz)  and we are armed.  and we both have our carry permit.

 

that sucks, addy  :(  i hope your day improves, sweetie.

I obviously need to make people more afraid of me. There is no law in Utah preventing people from openly carrying so maybe I should just start that. That'll make people a bit scared. Nothing is legally stopping me from shopping at Wal-Mart with a shotgun or a handgun as long as it is openly carried and secure and unchambered. Or you know... concealed with a permit. But that doesn't scare people. Clearly I need to cultivate my scary person attitude/persona. And make friends with our mayor.  :lol: Local primaries are in two weeks, then I can find out who I need to buddy up to.  B)

I doubt I'm ever all there so I can hardly fault anyone else for not being altogether there.  :D At least you're getting there. Hopefully all those mens are taking good care of you. What would we do without our mens?  :wub:

I haven't entirely decided yet on dinner. I'm thinking though that it'll be something easy to eat, today was the next to last of my dental work. WOOHOOOOOO!!!!! All I have left is to choose between a bridge and an implant and I'm waiting until next year because I'm at my insurance limit this year.

 

For sure I am thinking cheesebread. Soft, easy to chew, but not chew free so I feel like an invalid. Maybe I'll toss together a last minute meatloaf or something. I feel half starved to death because all I had for lunch was a Chobani. Too close to dinner to truly eat, and not enough self-restraint to simply snack. I need to just keep telling myself that being a little hungry once in a while is not going to hurt me. Or my butt.

 

I already have plans for tomorrow though. BLTs! I'm going to roast my little yellow cherry tomatoes, pop their skins off, mush them, chill them and use that as a spread instead of just plain tomatoes sliced. I have some of that Hormel uncured bacon in the fridge I need to use up. And lettuce of course. Ranch instead of mayo because... well why not! And all on toast. Sounds positively like perfection to me. But tomorrow, when I am more comfortable chewing. :D

French..... *snicker* you're gonna get yourself beat with a stick!

 

Rehab is for people who want to quit their habits. I am never going to kabana boy rehab. No how. No way. I also will not be held at all responsible for anyone's craziness. Heck, I don't barely let anyone hold me responsible for my own. :D

tonight I'm cooking pork apple salad with quinoa.  I've just used  a bit of salt and pepper and cut up the pork into squares, then I'm going to cook that with a bit of olive oil, some pecans, broccoli, green pepper, (wish I had green beens etc) then I'll let all that cool down and mix it in with a cut up apple, spinach and some other lettuce and maybe some broccoli slaw. I wish I had some balsamic vinegar because that would be really good reduced.

I'm not supposed to eat chicken skin, but fortunately my husband doesn't like it. So if it was all gone before he was home he would never know! Well... except the whole migraine and being half blind thing, but it is possible that it would be almost worth it! Just tell him you made skinless chicken. Think he'll buy it?

So I am still on extremely limited Meat, Z- or Sweet Potato Spirals with Veggie meals which is boring and have not helped the men cook their food in over a week...

 

but I did make a twist on my old Chocolate Mousse Recipe -- trying to limit even Choc for a bit -- Hubby walked in and asked what I was making but I had no idea...it is now called "Snickerdoodle Mousse" -- will need some adjustment, but it wasn't bad...didn't set in the frig so the remainder will be "Snickerdoodle Ice Cream" tonight.

 

Coconut Oil

Coconut Milk

Agave

Vanilla

Cinnamon - went light as I couldn't remember...but fairly sure this is a Histamine

 

Next batch will likely be simply Vanilla Mousse.

Huh...how does the Chicken Skin react with you?  Since I've given up so many other things - stealing Crunchy Chicken Skins has before meat hits the table has become a guilty pleasure for me.

    • thank you for the info, its very helpful to hear from someone else who has it and knows a lot about it. When you say I may be eliminating one problem vs 3, what would you think the other problems could be? It's frustrating because I even buy Uldis gluten-free bagels and what not and I still find myself reacting sometimes to that, I don't use butter but just gluten-free peanut butter, but like I said I don't know for sure if its from that or maybe something else. I have read on this site about a couple others that have had issues with uldis breads so could be that. but like you said I guess it can also just take awhile to get better. I read the other day that a lot of throwing up can put stress on your small intestine which can maybe cause your body to react to dairy, do you know anything about that or if that's true?
    • Thanks for the reply!  Yeah, I really should have gotten testing done before the elimination diet.  I had asked my previous doctor, but she didn't want to do it.  I was transitioning to a new insurance and couldn't get a doctor's appointment for awhile, so I thought I would just do the elimination diet.  After all, it might not have been gluten.  (<--that was my thought process...) Hindsight is 20/20.  I felt pretty good during those 3 weeks gluten free, and was not expecting how bad it would be when I added it back in.  Anyway, I found a new doctor and I think she would totally be willing to test me again 9 weeks out. I think she would also be willing to order the endoscopy if I brought her research and really pushed for it. Now that I know how good feeling good feels... I just can't see staying on gluten for another 9 weeks.  I honestly don't know how I would survive.  Even if it's not Celiac, and it's ONLY the wheat allergy... it's making my life absolutely miserable. Thanks again for the reply!  I think I'll go in Friday for the blood test and take it from there.
    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much!
