Oh... My...Gawd.... Patrick Stewart just surprise showed up and will be there tomorrow night. I'm trying to be all, that's cool. But I'm more like GAH OMG OMG OMG!!!! It's Friday morning and I'm so excited by this that I can already hardly breathe.

 

I think tonight I may throw together a meatloaf and all the stuff for with it. Also, with the strawberries in my pancakes last night (I probably had all of a tablespoon of them all finely chopped, so barely any) I feel fine today.

 

I need to go find something to distract me, because I can't sit still. Too excited.

My husband wants quesadillas for dinner. I guess that's dinner instead of meatloaf. Chicken cheddar bacon ranch quesadillas. With yellow cake and strawberries for dessert. I think I'll make pancakes again so I can have them as a travel breakfast for the morning. There is just no way I can get up, dressed and out the door with a packed bag and eat before I go. But, we're traveling by train so I'll just eat on the train. It's my first time on the train since they built it. :) I'm just trying to balance bringing enough with not bringing too much. I'll have zero options other than what I bring with me, so over packing is probably better than under packing.

Have a blast Addie!  Don't forget the camera if your phone doesn't have one...lots of fun peeps to see.  Last Summer the kid saw Robin propose to Poison Ivy surrounded by the rest of the DC gang!  Fun stuff.

 

Dinner tonight is meatloaf for the men...prepared by hubs.  Had one of my silly Idiopathic Anaphylaxis episodes yesterday afternoon -- have learned a few tricks with the repeat trips to ER since this fun started -- so thankfully I was able to manage without epi-pen, but had two sets of eyes on me that weren't so sure I was managing it -- my poor guys -- I'm a lucky wife/mom.

 

Anyhoo, today I refrained from eating anything until I was certain I wasn't going to react again (and to take care of Mom's PT).  Just had a wonderful paleo pizza with chopped garlic, onion, basil and fresh cheese as toppers...this girl is full and ready to kick the sore foot up with a touch of ice.

 

Oh...Addie...sharpie pens for autographs!!!!!

 

Happy Friday :)

Tonight was pizza pitas using local oven gluten-free pita bread.  They are based here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and sell in some close stores.  I just wanted pizza so bad!

Last night was dinner at Bonefish Grill (thanks, Mom!!)  Chilean sea bass, mango salsa, jasmine rice, asparagus

Mom liked her talapia, but not the rice or the "too hard" haricot verts. (she's tough to please, oy! ) but she inhaled the choc brownie/ice cream thinger like a Hoover upright.

 

Tonight may be burgers and fries. The sun came out finally (imagine the kvetching I have heard because it was overcast in the 'sunshine state")

and so, we are off to the pool. Want to go to the beach, Ma?You know, I live here right near the beach!

No. It will mess up my hair.

 

uh huh. I knew that before I asked (but there is the same breeze by the pool......)

:lol:

Yum...Seabass...need to send hubs to our local fishmonger after I read Irish's post.

 

Tonight will be on the cheap -- got eight teens battling out at D&D so:

 

Baked Garlic Chicken Thighs and Drumsticks

Mashed Potatoes

Frozen Peas

 

Felt like I won the lotto this morning -- ran up the street to a market that I buy meat from when it's on special -- just to grab a big assed ham and ran into a 2.99 per loaf of Udi sale -- white chocolate chips - to make white choc covered pretzels - were on sale too, as were two of my favorite bottles of Zin --- lol, I don't think I've met a bottle of Zin I don't like ;)

 

Happy Easter Eve Dinner Peeps :wub:

holy smokes! 2.99  a loaf...hope you bought 20 of those!  that IS a good dealio.

 

I grabbed a small-ass ham myself and think potatoes gratin and glazed carrots and green beans may be on the menu tomorrow. I prefer lamb but I was out-voted. Ham it is. (blech) lol. I'll jazz that thing up with cloves, honey mustard, pineapple, maybe a hat.  ^_^

 

I've got some dough for hot cross buns in the fridge doing its thing. I'll make those for breakies.  And quite possibly we will have apple crisp and vanilla bean ice cream for dessert.

 

Should be a 2 lb. weight gain kinda day. lol

 

Happy Easter to all who celebrate it! hugs, G xx

I made it home in one piece. I am exhausted. I am in indescribable pain. And I am so insanely happy that I could bounce off the walls. I sat in the same room with Patrick Stewart. (I was so thrilled when he walked in the room that I almost cried because it was really real.) And... so many other awesome people. It was the most incredible experience. I can't wait to repeat it this fall. And, with the headcount Salt Lake Comic Con Fan X just became the 3rd largest Con in the country. Wooo!!!! (It's first time out.) Go Utah nerds!

 

Happy Easter!

Addie....So glad you had a blast at your first Con -- take it easy today -- all that excitement is tough on the system ;)

 

Happy Easter Everyone!

 

Just put the beginning of a triple layer lemon cake in the oven -- going to fill with lemon curd and top with lemon cream cheese frosting along with....wait for it....Lemonade Peeps!  I had never purchased a peep in my life until all the peer pressure got to me this year :P.  The D&D gang tried the sour watermelon peeps yesterday...uh...I think my dislike of the little dudes must have trickled down through the genes.  Oh well, will make a cute Easter Cake for my Mom whom loves lemon sweet treats (as do I).

 

Going to try a simple recipe on the big ass ham that I found on the net last night -- baste often with a combo of pear juice/orange juice and then last hour half honey/half brown sugar glaze.

 

Edited to add:  sides will be scalloped taters, bacon brussels and bbq'd pineapple slices

Now you know how I felt when I saw Alessio Fasano. :)

 

Well, guys, my hot cross buns are almost ready for frosting  (and by that I mean, the kind in the oven, not in my pants). 

 

They smell fabulous.

 

HOPPY Easter

I heart you guys.

Thursday will be my husband's next day off work. Since he gets home super late, that's when we'll have Easter dinner. We're flexible like that. Tonight I think I'm going to make that meatloaf I wanted on Friday. Maybe some puffs and definitely some veggies. And there is still a little cake left to finish up for dessert.

Today was pretty low key since it is just the two of us and I am not going to buy a small ham, make a big dinner, and eat on it all week, haha.  I had a frozen chicken broccoli rice casserole to bake for lunch, and when it was baking our power went out in a rain storm.  After about 45 minutes I was going to pull it out of the oven and toss it, then go hunt for food somewhere.  But lo and behold it had cooked to perfection in the carryover heat! :o   So we sat there in the dark and ate our cheesy casserole -haha!  And then the power came back eventually on so now we can entertain ourselves.

 

We also went by a drug store yesterday to get me a couple cadbury creme eggs.  I wish they sold them year round, but since they don't I like to get a small supply to snack on for a few more weeks.

That is such a great looking cake. I'm sure it was as delicious as it looks!

 

My husband had quesadillas again because he doesn't do meatloaf. He's so weird. :P

    • How the gluten-free diet can cause new heartburn / GERD: sodium acid pyrophosphate
      I never really had much heartburn before my diagnosis of Celiac and consequent dietary changes. But since then, I have discovered Udis, Van's, Canyon Bakehouse, and many other gluten-free brands. About a year ago I began eating 2 waffles every day, 7 days a week with my breakfast. The waffles I was eating were Nature's Path and Van's, both which use very high amounts of sodium acid pyrophosphate. The waffles are mostly air and carbs. Within a few weeks I began to develop recurrent, very painful heartburn that would popup constantly. My tolerance for acidic foods declined--whereas previously it would take much more acidic foods to cause heartburn, now any amount, no matter how small, would cause heartburn. And it kept getting worse with each month to the point that I began to worry about my health. I developed GERD that wouldn't go away for 24 hours after eating an offending food. The offending foods list kept growing bigger and bigger to the point that almost anything would cause heartburn and some degree of GERD. So I eliminated almost all foods containing sodium acid pyrophosphate and the heartburn and GERD stopped. I can eat tomato-based foods again with either no discomfort or 5% of the discomfort I used to experience, and I can eat foods on the offending food list again with no heartburn at all. Despite searching the internet for hours for an answer to what was causing my heartburn and GERD, I found nothing definitive and had to figure it out on my own. Did you know there is absolutely nothing at all anywhere on the internet connecting sodium acid pyrophosphate with hearburn? To my knowledge this will be the first ever post on the topic on the entire internet. Either that, or both Google and DuckDuckGo are suppressing the information. Also, did you know that sodium acid pyrophosphate is an ingredient found in almost all aluminum-free baking powder? That's what I get for trying to eliminate aluminum! I am making the switch to single-action aluminum-free baking powder soon--single-action doesn't have this ingredient, but it's less convenient to use unfortunately. I'm interested to hear if it causes anyone else heartburn as well. I'm glad to be heartburn-free and comfortable for the first time in a year.
    • Do this, scientists! (experiment to confirm/deny the existence of "leaky gut")
      Leaky gut is a condition that we have little knowledge of.  The symptoms this condition could cause are not agreed upon. Some health practitioners say it could cause "wide range of long term conditions [1], like chronic fatigue syndrome and Multiple Sclerosis. The possible cause list NHS gives is much more accurate: inflammatory bowel diseases – such as Crohn's disease infections of the intestines – such as salmonella, norovirus andgiardiasis  coeliac disease  chemotherapy medicines chronic kidney disease   radiotherapy to the abdomen (tummy) immunosuppressants (medicines that weaken the immune system) HIV/AIDS  cystic fibrosis   type 1 diabetes sepsis complicated surgery As you can see, the list includes a lot gastrointestinal conditions. Gut becomes "leaky", letting too big particles into blood system, and possibly these particles act as poison (because they are not  supposed to be in the blood, thus the possible bad effects). Now, to confirm this disease, I was amazed that this test hadn't been done before:
      Feed the supposed "leaky gut" patients (e.g. celiacs with damaged bowel) with IV fluids. Because these fluids go directly into the blood stream, and the particles are "elemental" (glucose, vitamins, amino acids... all supposed to be in the blood stream anyway), they shouldn't cause any symptoms. If they notice improvement, the problem is in the digestive system (I'm also including stomach). If not, such condition as "leaky gut" doesn't exist. Rather the problem is how the body reacts to the "elemental" particles. E.g the most common explanation would be diabetes (the IV fluids just caused elevated glucose levels), that also should be tested. Also the "candida theory", because its proponents say the candida is in the WHOLE body, including the blood stream. To eliminate this, patients should take anticandida meds, then again go on IV fluids, and if they NOW get better, it was candida. If not candida, and not diabetes, nor allergies, we have a new condition we aren't even aware of (body reacting to elementary particles with no obvious reason). However, if the patients DO get better, the problem IS in the gut. Now, it could be celiac disease, and the improvement could have been due to eliminating gluten from the diet (because IV doesn't contain gluten). The question remains that did the bowel actually leak any particles? (not just gluten causing autoimmune reactions and malnutrition, and explaining all the  300 symptoms).  Or the patients just get better due to NOW acquiring all the necessary nutrients.  To eliminate these possibilities, they should feed the patients with gluten-free food (or even better, with elemental diet, because it could also be lack of digestive enzymes or something else). If they get worse, the problem is STILL in the gut, and thus the "leaky gut" exists. If not, "leaky gut" is probably a non-existent condition.
    • So Hershey's Miniatures Aren't Gluten Free?
      I am really ill just now - 20 minutes after eating 2 Hersheys Milk Chocolate Miniatures - checked on the Hersheys site and the milk choc. minis are NOT included on their list of gluten-free products -and no, I am not sensitive to dairy, so that's not it.  NO MORE for me... it is not the "end to a perfect day" but it isn't fun.
    • Candida test
      I noticed after I posted this that there are some topics about this posted before.  There is a search function above.  But, if anyone has anything new to post that would be appreciated.
    • Negative tests, possible celiac?
      I had a celiac blood test around may 2015. I'm 20, male. AGA  -        35       range 0-20 TTG IgA -     5      range 0-20 I believe total IgA was normal. I have been gluten free, avoiding gluten best I could for about  2 weeks before this. On june 2015, did a biopsy, results said no signs of villous atrophy, doctor convinced I don't have it. Been gluten free for about a month before this, doctor only said to eat a 'normal' diet beforehand. I know that this could yield false negative results, but I don't think the amount of time is enough to hide the damage?   Had symptoms since I was 4-5 years old, very skinny , pale, constipation, diarrhea, inconsistent nausea (from eating wheat products, soy sauce), migraines, stomachaches, night terrors, sleepwalking. Symptoms were most evident till around 10 years of age. During my teens, the symptoms seemingly start to fade, rarely nauseated, random bouts of diarrhea 1-2 times a month or so.   Been gluten free for up to 8 months now, decided to start eating gluten again just to see how I would feel/ for retesting. Almost on day 2, no noticeable symptoms.  Ate gluten heavy for a month, a year before, breads, pasta 2-3 times a day, lost over 3-4 kg, started feeling overly lethargic during the day/after eating gluten. Sharp stomach pains and mild diarrhea once or twice.   I'm quite certain it's celiac, but if its not, and after reading about how non celiac gluten sensitivity might not exist,i don't really know what to think anymore. Any opinions/ similar experiences would be appreciated.
