The accent was what you questioned? not if he wears a beret? (because what does the English speaking Easter bunny SAY, Coll? Do tell us. lmao 

 

Hey, my cat plays scrabble and wins...anything is possible, right? 

 

The visual that came to mind was the "Try-Out" Commercial for the role as the Cadbury Bunny.  Picture that big Lion roaring with a french accent.  :D  C'est La Vie

Thanks Colleen!

 

I do the tealight in the cake all the time...so freaking simple and makes the cake look fantastic...first time ever was for my Bunco Pals Christmas Party...let me see if I can find.

 

here it is:  https://scontent-a-sjc.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash2/t1.0-9/380824_10150616657148574_1450736359_n.jpg

 

and this is why nobody ever complains about eating completely gluten-free in my home ;)

 

ps...had mom make a wish on last night's candle even tho not her birthday -- told her i made it for her so the wishes counted regardless of the date :)

Tonight will be pork tenderloin and (to steal from Lisa) stuff. I was going to make it tomorrow but through some sort of super weird magical thawing voodoo it is ready to be cooked today. I'm not sure how. But I'll take it!

 

It's okay that some of your family doesn't like Peeps. I eat enough every year for at least 5 or 6 people. :ph34r:

For Easter we grilled steak, had a sort of garlic mashed potato and salad.  Chocolate pudding pie on a pre-made graham cracker crust!  MI-Del makes gluten-free pie crusts.  I saw graham cracker and chocolate cookie.  I make the chocolate cookie one but the pre-made costs the same as the bag of cookies to make it and it sticks together better.  And of course, convenience.  It tasted good, too.  Hub said no one would know.

I'm finally feeling much more like a human today. Getting some things done around the house that I let go all weekend. (Like my husband's laundry. :ph34r:) But still taking it easy and letting it happen at whatever pace it gets done at. It's laundry, if it doesn't get done it'll still be dirty and waiting tomorrow. No big deal.

 

Dinner will be leftover pork. I think I'll make puffs tonight because I didn't last night and they sound fun today. And veggie something of course, there's a freezer full of choices, I just have to pick something. I keep wanting more carrots but pretty soon I'm either going to turn into a carrot or run out. :lol:

 

I love the convenience of pre-made graham cracker or cookie crusts. I always hated making those things. <_< I'm all for homemade stuff but those are just the worst to make.

le jambon has given me swollen eyelids and a headache (and I am too tired to parlez that en francaise. )

 

Stoopid jambon.  :huh:  :lol:  That bone will make a yummy pea soup for J tomorrow. 

 

Mother has returned to Boston and as sad as I am to see her depart, it will be good to have spices, herbs, onions, garlic back in the repertoire.

 

I think she adopted me from Julia Child. (what? it coulda happened. )

 

Dinner tonight is take out from PF Changs because THIS girl is tres fatigue.

I've got a jambon up for grabs...we dislike split pea soup very much...cracks me up...Mom had made Split Pea every year after Easter so I always gave her the bone and a pea soup mix I got up at a Country Store in Julian -- as she became -- shall we say more honest as her health has declined I found out she hates pea soup as much as me...but Dad and Sis love it so she never let on.  I asked Dad if he wanted the ham bone so he could make his own soup...he declined :P

 

Enjoy your night out Irish!

 

Son took me to see the movie 'Bears' -- I was so excited I almost had a temper tantrum when he was trying to oversleep today.  Told him he did not want to see what 48 year old's temper tantrum looks like -- lol -- he was up and ready in minutes ;)

 

Dinner is enchiladas again cuz I made too much sauce last time -- oops.  Will put different veggies with left over chicken breast meat from last night.

 

Happy Earth Day Dinner Peeps :wub:

Last night I made some brown rice with shredded carrots and a packet of chicken bouillon.  Then I added the 2 partial packs of frozen corn in the freezer, 1 can of black beans, 1 can of pintos, a jar of salsa a little water to rinse out the salsa jar & covered with a little cheese.  Hub wasn't thrilled with it but then he started eating it,  and loved it!  Ate all left-overs I was counting on!   :D

We are jambom-intolerant, toots! <_<  argh

 

(although UNCURED ham --or any uncured meats. like bacon, etc.--does not bother me...Ergo, it's the crap they put in it)

 

I love to use "ergo" .  :D

Wow, that looks really good!!  I have gotten into sneaking veggies into things and feeding them to my husband but I think if I gave him a green soup he would make me sleep on the couch... haha.  I would dig in to it, though.  

 

Last night I made pizza, yum yum yum.  Used the premade crusts I ordered, not bad.

That soup looks fabulous! I'll have to give it a go soon. Next soup on my list though is French onion soup. I can't wait. This weekend maybe.

 

I stretched myself a tad too thin today cutting fabric for heating pads and lining. Got killer muscle cramps in my legs and could barely walk back down the stairs. Lucky me, I have some handy heating pads! :lol: Farmers market starts in 6 Saturdays so I need to be in high gear, just maybe not quite that high.

 

I think after my mishap I'll just throw burgers on the indoor grill and do oven fries. Ore-Ida has these new "simply" potatoes that don't have weird ingredients and I picked up a bag. I don't remember what kind but I'm sure they'll come out tasting like an actual potato since they have a short list of ingredients that can actually be pronounced by most humans. I figured I can at least give them a try and I'm glad today to have them in the freezer.

Addy, Those Ore Ida simply sea salt fries--awesome in a pinch! enjoy :)

Mom and Aunt Jane both got their heat packs and their necks love them. 

I have been using two non stop. lol

 

I am not feeling well at all, so J made me a pancake. He's very good at those. 

 

He got us a brand new BBQ today. We need so many other things (gutters, overhead fans, etc.) but he said "we need a grill".

 

okay, lol Can't argue with that. It has a pizza stone included. So, how could I say no? 

 

I have missed grilled burgers, so yaay! :)

Sometimes, it is best to just let them take over for the day.  :) I watched a boatload of movies and TV shows today and I suspect

all will be better tomorrow.

 

PS to Arlene....hang in there dollface. You're gonna be hungry tomorrow afternoon.  I'd start with a big honkin bowl of gelato.  ;)

Dinner tonight.. may not happen.  Because I just baked a Betty Crockers gluten-free devils food cake mix and I have a tub of icing waiting to go in when it is cool enough.  Hmmm, I guess I will whip up a little bit of real food but I am definitely leaving room for cake!  (By the way for those who wonder why I post my dinners so late- I cook for when hubby gets home from work which can be pretty late)

 

This weekend I am getting a free gluten-free meal at one of my favorite local places, they had a Facebook contest where you comment on a picture and holy guacamole I actually won this time!  So a free entree to the place we were already planning to go to on our Saturday date, can't beat that!

    • Hello I'm happy to join, any help is greatly appreciated as it can be difficult by times for sure. Unfortunately, I have been told my doctor has definitely not been doing anything correctly and very backwards about Alot of things. I live in canada, and there are celiac support groups I have found but I am about 2 hours away from any. I live in a pretty rural area. Although,  I have still received some help from them , they prefer a diagnosis before helping out to much. My doctor has me on a waiting list to see a gastrointestinal specialist but whenever I called her office to inquire about an appointment time I was told there was a very long wait and that I was considered to be a non emergency. So I am waiting to get an appointment. I have seen a dermatoligist for some of my rashes and she said it was dermatitis and gave me different creams for them.  It is frustrating because I don't know how to go about getting a actual diagnosis besides this biopsy. I was told to request a different specialist, but supposedly there is a waiting period for most in our area. 
    • Thanks for all of the replies. I've just found out I'm not getting to see a dietician because of not having a definite diagnosis which is another blow. I've had loads of bloods done but they just say they're all normal. I did have low vitamin D and high parathyroid but it's sorted itself out after a course of high dose vitamin D and they're not checking it again for a year. No chance of getting referred to endocrinology, gastro won't do it and neither will my gp. I've tried giving up coffee and all fizzy juice and it hasn't made a difference. I'm exhausted and scared and still have no clue what to do next. My gp has zero experience dealing with this type of thing - last time I was there she said it could be because I've restricted my diet too much and I should eat more gluten-free replacement products - everything I've read online says this is the worst thing to do! I'm asking for a copy of the last blood results this week so I can go through them myself but other than that I'm pretty stuck. 
    • I really am iffy on talking about this side of my gluten issues, I think I am about to ruin my reputation on this forum coming about as some extreme crazy guy saying this but I wanted to get this off my chest and perhaps see if anyone else might share a similar trauma. I get emotional recalling it, this side of my reactions, as it is most ingrained and very traumatizing experience, and I am not proud of it as the mentality I have now disgust me but I am going to come out about it. One of the scariest things in this world is when your own mind turns against you, when you can not think about what you want to think about, when you can not do what you know you should be able to do. When I got glutened really bad these where things I felt with my own mind would start looping, and thoughts would not come together. I would loose comprehension, feel like I know I should be able to think about something but my mind was not working. The same thing looped over and over and over like a broken record, This led to anger, anxiety, depression, panic, top it off with loss of feeling in my hands and feet, and the pains in the gut......it was a nightmare. I would go as far as beating my head against walls and punching them out of frustration as to why my own body and mind where not working, I just wanted it to end the pain to stop. I still have scars on my fist from punching into a nail in a stud once and kept going.....I scared everyone and myself distanced my self from loved ones. And started running a bucket list accepting that I was going to die soon. Hell to this day parts of the brain damage seem to be permanent as I can no longer do computer programing or some forms of math, they just no longer make any sense or connect. Then we learned what was causing it, and once the symptoms started to fade, I would get very angry if someone in the shared house did something stupid and got me sick again. The fear of going back to that caused violent and drastic actions to get away from what was making me sick. The sheer fear of my own mind turning on me led me to drastic actions to prevent it, throwing everything away I thought could make me sick, making sure no one else used that kitchen, used freezer paper and gloves when fixing my foods and working in there. I really destroyed and burned all bridges I had then and alienated myself from others. In the end it motivated me to learn how to cook, to get and renovate my own apartment in a building downtown, and start a business to pay for my new diet, by selling safe food to others with this issues locally at farmer markets. But it changed me on a very deep level, that traumatic experience to this day I have a issue looking at others and dealing with other humans who eat that stuff.......the stuff that breaks my mind and body so horrifically. If I have to compare it to something its like watching aliens drinking antifreeze and eating poison.....it causes a subconscious level of disgust and slight envy. I really can not even look at the stuff without recall what it does and feeling a twitch. I know I am the alien here, but it feels vise versa, and I look down on the normal people as odd creatures.  I go to the store and find myself overly avoiding contamination, keeping stuff in my own bags, asking the cashier to scan and bag it as I pass it not letting it touch that flour I see on the belt. I am hyper sensitive to the stuff I know and that fear semi dominates my mind as crazy as it sounds.  I am recovering and am forcing myself to try to mingle with other humans overlooking that one thing, but that deep rooted trauma still flares up as a protective measure especially around foods.  I could talk on and on about the other side effects but this one is the hardest to talk about it, and I feel others might be able to relate to it.    
    • Time.  You need time to heal.  Yeah, I am like a broken record!  😄 So...Lycra is your best friend for now (that and old baggy sweats!).  Hang in there!  Hugs!     
    • So far dairy seems to be OK, as are eggs. I like canned chickpeas so will carry on with those. Beans I had ruled out at one point with the doctor's recommendation to go with the low FODMAPs diet but will reintroduce those now I know it probably wasn't that causing the problems.
