I literally dump:

 

Sliced pineapple...my slicer makes thick slices which we like in this cake.

Sprinkle good amount of Brown Sugar over pineapple

Sprinkle one package yellow cake mix -- I've used all different brands..they all work

Drizzle one stick melted butter over the works

Bake for 20-30 minutes at 350 -- time depends on what size pan you use -- again, I've used all sizes/shapes of pans.

 

Works well with granny smith apples too -- just add cinnamon on top -- yummy.

 

I use all brands of gluten-free Cream of soups -- I get which ever is least expensive...today I'm using Healthy Valley Organic because I ordered a case from amazon at a good price.

So happy for you that you're on your bike again! :D

 

I'm off to PT and stopping on the way home at the library and post office. I got a thing yesterday saying they had something for me to pick up but that 39 cent is due for postage. I've never heard of the company it's from and I'm quite confused. I definitely want to know what it is before I go giving them my money, even if it isn't any real amount. I'm confused that a company just mailed me something and expects me to pay for the postage. :huh:

I made this pineapple upside downer following Ski's suggestions for a family dinner party. Hubs and his Aunt Annie (you all know about her--the manhattan-loving gal? lol)  LOVE pineapple upside down cake and I confess, I had never eaten it in my entire life.

 

I had a box of KA G F yellow cake mi in my pantry  and did what Ski says here and it was a huge hit! I served it with vanilla bean ice cream. It "tasted like more" as we say in this house. ^_^

They make these "dump" cakes at Boy Scouts/  They call them cobbler.  They are also good with a can of pie fillings - apple (with spice cake) , peach, blueberry, cherry - with chocolate cake mix.  They cook them in a dutch oven in the fire (coals on top of lid).

 

Two nights ago we had pasta with cheese baked on top.  Last night we had cheeseburger pie with assorted fruit and carrot sticks.  Not sure what we are doing tonight.

Apparently mysterious people are mailing me cookie cutters. I called the company on the way out of the house to PT and they're all psh... we don't know nothin bout nothin but we sell stuff on etsy and amazon and all over the interwebs so maybe you bought something and didn't know it was from us. Whatever. I got to the post office and they showed me a package, I felt it and was like, omg, almost definitely a cookie cutter. I was totally right! Now to notify the company to get their heads out of their butts in regards to shipping. And to figure out who sent it... as if that's gonna be hard. I'm lookin at you Irish. :P

Giraffe! Just one, but that's all you need to make cookies with. There is only one appropriate shape to make cut out cookies into. At least in this house. :lol:

Or my mother maybe? Or my dad, which would be weird but I suppose he might do it. I just doubted my kids cause they already sent me crap for mother's day and there is no reason for them to send me crap now. I could see my husband doing it maybe, although he's not awesome at keeping secrets. Time to start gently harassing people.

One time when my friend who is also named Laura was pregnant, I sent her a giant package of hickory farms stuff because she craved sausage all the time.  I wrote in the little message box "Dear Laura, please enjoy eating my sausage, love, Laura."  And they didn't put it on there because they thought it was dirty... haha.  So, she asked on facebook "Ummm whoever sent me a box of sausages, thank you!  They are delicious!" which set off a firestorm of hilarity.  

 

Addy, I picked up some of the glutino faux oreos ("fauxreos" as I call them) and they are so good!  Why did I buy them?!  My hiney will grow from this.  I also have had a lot of joint pain and such this week, bad lupus days really, so I haven't been back to water aerobics.  Hopefully next week I will be able to. 

 

Yesterday I had leftover chicken tacos for a late lunch so I just ate a PB&J for dinner.  I went and got the hubby some wing stop to eat, he really likes their wings.  Today will be spaghetti with meat sauce and broccoli on the side.

Whew, back from my Amish store shopping spree and exhausted! We hit 4 different Amish stores throughout southern Michigan and northern Indiana. Some of my great finds were Schar bread for 49 cents a bag (got 8 bags of it for 49 cents and the 9th bag free from their free box) and Lundberg rice for $1 per bag. (I got 6 bags of it, yay! That stuff usually costs me between $5-6 per bag) 

 

I also got several bags of corn pasta for 69 cents per bag and lots of other goodies. Resting now and putting away all of the food!

 

I'll probably make veggie wraps for supper again, they are so good with the fresh microgreens from my FarmBox. (weekly subscription to an organic farm, similar to CSA)

Fauxreos! Hahaha I love it! If I had better self control I would keep them in the house all the time. My sleeping pills say on the bottle to take with food and I take them half an hour before bed. Well cookies and milk are a perfect bedtime snack, but I just can't seem to control myself with those cookies. Fortunately, my husband is doing a good job of helping me with the ones we made this week. They make good lunchbox snacks too.

My mystery sender remains a mystery. <_<

 

Tonight we're going to just have burgers and corn on the cob and whatever other veggie I dig up for myself. With it having truly turned summer I'm rather enjoying things that are simple, delicious and take very little effort. Like lunch... apples and gouda. I was gifted a small block of gouda which I don't think I've had before. It is divine. Duh... it's cheese!

At my bridal shower (the first marriage to Barney Rubble back in the stone age) someone gave me an unmarked box, no card and I opened it and it was a "dirty words game". Hilarious!

 

You know the kind I mean..letters that were magnetized so you could spell risque stuff out on the fridge?  The person I thought gave it to me has denied it for 31  years. No one has ever claimed responsibility. (I would have--it was a cool gift and I would taken the accolades! lol)

It's still a mystery. 

 

I guess you'll just have to enjoy the fact that someone was sweet enough to think of you!

Back from a day where I brought my own food to two different potlucks. 

 

We went to a lasagna lunch at our neighbors house and I brought my own penne pasta, salad, and treats. Supper was a potluck at the church and I didn't feel like any more heavy food in the heat so we had Canyon Bakehouse raisin bread with peanut butter, honey, and sour cherry jam, as well as a big fruit salad. The only thing that we ate from the potluck was some watermelon that we set aside beforehand.

 

I got a chance to talk to a gal today about gluten free food. Actually she brought up the subject. She knew I was gluten free and she had some questions about it. At one point her allergist recommended that she go off gluten for awhile, so she did. When she went back on, her headaches and eye pains came back with a vengeance. I explained to her about celiac and why she should get tested before going gluten-free again.

 

Now to plan for my FIL's birthday party tomorrow. I'm bringing a peanut butter pie, a watermelon cake, and stuff to grill like veggies and vegetarian "chicken" strips. (I use the Beyond Meat brand which is certified gluten-free) My sweet MIL said that we can have a whole separate grill for the gluten-free stuff and cover it with foil too. I'm so blessed, I think that I must have won the inlaw lottery.  :D

Yep.....and a good friend whom made me laugh out loud several times -- always fun when the hubs looks sideways to see why I'm giggling!

 

Lovely menu -- I may have to copy a few of those evenings.

 

It is Sunday once again so Dad comes to dinner...this week the Crock Pot Creme Brulee made it into KFG first thing this morning -- even before my first cup of caffiene!!!!

 

Dinner is Turkey Soup -- odd choice for warm weather, but am out of broth so I figured two birds - one stone :)

 

Off to walk before the sun breaks through the morning cloud cover.

Today I had done a lot of cleaning so my husband suggested going to BJs Brewhouse for dinner... don't have to ask me twice!  I didn't realize I was so hungry until I ate a whole gluten-free pizza and a gluten-free pizzokie :D  Gosh I love those things.  Good thing it is a little bit of a drive to get there or I would have to eat them more often and I would be fat!

 

Tomorrow I am going to make a big batch of rotini with meat and mushroom sauce to eat throughout the week for lunches.  Then I have a bunch of zuchinni and other veggies to cook up as well.

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
