Someone is having a good night!

 

 

I still feel weird saying this as justification for doing things. I act like I'm 5 as much as I act my age so I'm not sure I should be allowed to say it. I also play more video games than most teenagers.

 

So, I stopped at Wal-Mart for the cheese I need for dinner, which is dangerous because I should never be allowed in that store alone. For some reason I meandered down the baking aisle, it still draws me like a moth to a flame. And they had a zoo animal Jello Jiggler mold with a giraffe! There are other animals and stuff but w/e. GIRAFFE! So naturally I bought one. Like I said, I shouldn't be allowed in that store alone. I have absolutely no self control. My husband is going to tell me I didn't need it. But obviously he doesn't know what he's talking about. Now I can eat giraffe shaped jello instead of blob shaped jello. Totally worth $3.

I'm a video game player as well  B) 

 

Beef soup with mushrooms and carrots and whatever else i think of to add to it.

I think it is better than being a "GROAN up". :lol:

 

and I think giraffe jello jigglers are fantastic. How can you eat that food dye though? it does not bother you? :unsure: it makes me feel icky.

I was wondering about that the other day at the store. Do they sell any puddings without food coloring in them? :wacko:

It'll be fine... it's giraffe shaped.

 

Stop looking at me like that.

I make all of my pudding from scratch. Like with cornstarch and flavoring and etc... etc....

 

I could probably do that with jello if I weren't so lazy by buying unflavored gelatin and just adding whatever flavor I want and not adding color, or using natural colors. And you can only get the mold by buying it with the 2 packs of jello it comes with.

I suspect you have good news, then?  ;) I say "slainte" as I raise my glass...Gaelic for "to your good health". xx

My good news is ... regarding my cancer check up ... "no definitive progression of metastatic activity"  which means the cancer has not gone any further than the initial lymph nodes at this time.  :D  :D

My casserole was delicious. My husband wouldn't touch it. I suppose I committed some sort of super serious culinary sin though. I thought I had a jar of Classico in the house, turns out I didn't so I used my $8 jar of Dave's Gourmet.... in a casserole. Also, Delallo pasta is pretty good. It was my first time having it (because it was free, which is the best kind of pasta really) and I rather liked it even though I usually don't like spaghetti at all.

 

I'll go to my room now.

I think I'm going to have leftovers. I'll be too busy making bagels to do things like cook! My husband can eat whatever he finds for dinner. There is a perfectly good casserole he could be eating if he weren't so picky.

 

I'm working the next 3 days, whole days. I'm putting the remainder of my casserole into single serve containers and freezing it. I'll have 3 leftover bagels after the one I eat tonight to have for breakfast for 3 days. Plus I have a month's supply of snacks that I picked up on Saturday so all I have to do is pick and choose what to throw in my bag every morning. The hardest part? Staving off boredom for all 3 of those days... there are only so many amusing games on kongregate that I can play before I'll go stark raving mad.

http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/104639-homemade-bagel-recipe/

 

Someone started this nonsense earlier today. All I needed was one person saying it was an awesome recipe and I was off and running. BTW I'm just licking the last of the cream cheese off my fingers from my first one and all I can say is holy craponacracker! I didn't manage to make them pretty, but they are beyond divine. Someone please order me a goodyear sized mumu. The only thing that would have made it more perfect was lox.

 

My next step is to modify the recipe just a little to turn it into pumpkin spice bagels. That is next week's project. I'm trying to guess how many tries that's gonna take.

That would be interesting to try. My husband wants me to make blueberry ones. I think blueberry cinnamon. Like I said, I'm gonna get so fat. I may just eat a bagel a day for the rest of my life.

now, now, now....if yer gonna use that, you need to put @IrishHeart. copyright laws, and all. just sayin. :D

 

Ok, now who's the wisacre who posted a delicious bagel recipe? I can't believe we are being challenged this way.

Never got those muumuus and I have to walk on a beach for the love of mike and I can't be blobbing around like a giant giraffe-sized jello jiggler. Thighs aflapping and whatnot...

 

So....Shadow? did you try the puddin??

 

I have decided (because it's fall weather down here)

(see, that's hilarious because it's 86 and I spent the morning on the beach watching young men surfing.....)

 

to make a brisket. Not just any brisket, but something called Atlanta Brisket and it has  coca-cola in the recipe.

It should fall away from the carving knife like butter, they claim. I'll be the judge of that.

Nope not yet, I don't have the stuff to make it.

 

I get the last of my beef soup tonight.

 

I'm going to make mac and cheese sometime soon.

Sometimes people steal other people's sayings because saying the things in their head would be crass, crude and explicit. I can either have an anger management problem or a swearing problem, I choose to have a swearing problem.  :P In the future though I'll try to remember my ™. As penance I'll have an oatmeal butterscotch cookie for dessert with my lunch, putting oatmeal in a cookie makes it health food instead of a treat right?

 

Also, I never thought of the whole hanging out watching guys surf all day thing. Hmm.... maybe Florida really does have its merits! And you are way easily amused this morning, which is amusing. 

 

I left for work without giving a single thought to my dinner. My husband isn't working today though so maybe I should make him cook for me! I need someone I can live with and be their kitchen grunt. I can do things like chop and get things out of the oven, just so I don't have to be the person with ideas.

This another reason why you could easily live with me. :lol:  I am an "idea person". I love to come up with creative ideas for food--and drinks--and, I do not even mind washing dishes.

But, if you will help chop and dice and lift crap our of the oven for me (because you know my shoulders are bad) well, we'd be a match made in heaven.

 

Yes, take 2 cookies, repent and we're good. 

 

As for the watching the surfers thinger, it's my morning ritual and...if you do not want to come all this way, there's always California....why do think SKI is always going down to the ocean?? She doesn't surf anymore B) therefore......

low or no humidity in fall, winter, spring. Honest, If my hair is not kinky-curling, it's not humid. It's not kinking.

And I'm not sticking around for the very hot sticky stuff. That's when I am going North. ;)

    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
