We met up with family at a local BBQ place right after our wake up time so BBQ for breakfast, so I boxed most of my food, can't eat heavy food that early.  Made myself mac and cheese later because my hubby ate mac and cheese there, I was so jealous, lol.  He abstained from bread, though, for me  :wub:   I am tired of heavy food... was going to make breakfast for dinner but I think I am going to do a meal I had planned for later this week, and cook up some of the gnocchi I made and froze, with some haricots verts on the side.

Took my Dad & sis to Bonefish last night!  Salmon with mango salsa, garlic whipped potatoes, asparagus.  And we got there early enough for a half price glass of wine!

I julienned some potatoes and made some awesome hash browns for breakfast yesterday and then fried a turkey egg and plopped it on top. It was so good that I did it again for dinner. Happy dance for me because I successfully ate turkey eggs with NO reaction! YAY!

Can I have her permanently in my signature? I love her!! Yes that is definitely me after eating those eggs! :) My eggs were given to me by a coworker that is raising some turkeys for Thanksgiving. He found out about my chicken egg intolerance and kindly offered up his turkey eggs. He said he will continue to collect them for me if they worked out.. I emailed him this morning with my success story!!  Duck eggs are usually bought from an asian market. I will be trying those next since I may eventually run out of options come November...

and now I want a turkey egg too!

 

Hubs has improved today - so I was extremely happy and dancing a bit myself...right up and until I logged onto the computer and found out Tony Gwynn (Mr. Padre #19) had passed unexpectently -- he has been battling mouth cancer -- damn that chew the guys love -- but was thought to be on the mend as he just signed a contract extension to return to coaching the Aztecs...this city is in mourning and likely will be for a while until a proper city wide celebration takes place.  I owe Tony -- he was my boys first hero and what a wonderful hero he made -- a true humble gentle soul that would do anything for anyone in need.  Man...now the tears are pooling again.

 

Ok...dinner was to be turkey meat loaf...hmmm that should work with carrots and yellow squash to complete the Padre Throwback menu -- Brown, Orange and Gold -- thinking we will be eating those colors again tomorrow night as the youngest returns from his cross country adventure just in time for dinner -- gonna be hard for him hearing the news while in Ohio -- luckily I gave the grands padre hats so he can have them wear them today to feel closer to home.

 

Off to doc with hubs to ask for a few more tests and hopefully get him all the way back to his strong mountain climbing bike riding self :)

I canned sweet cherry jam and maraschino cherries today. And I wanted it DONE and pushed and managed to make my left ankle look like an elephant ankle and get myself some "shoot me in the face" pain. <_< But it's done! :D And on a trip to the store for more lids because I ran out I noticed that next to the closest grocery store in an empty spot a GELATO RESTAURANT just opened up!!! Oh yeah, I know where I'm headed next time I want a treat. B)

 

Easy peasy dinner tonight. Burgers, tots and corn on the cob. I wish I could say that we were having sundaes for dessert but we have no ice cream in the house! I don't even know how that happened! :lol:

I stopped by target today and picked up a few things... got one of the annies gluten-free snack packs http://www.annies.com/products/snack-meal-kits/gluten-free-snack-kit, some talenti gelato in the butter pecan flavor, some of those wow cookies (http://www.wowbaking.com/product/chocolate-chip-cookies/ )people on here have mentioned (they are gooooooood, I ate half the pack, lol)  and last but not least....

 

So delicious GLUTEN FREE COOKIE DOUGH ICE CREAM.  OH MY GOD.  SINCE WHEN DID THIS EXIST?!!!   (http://sodeliciousdairyfree.com/products/coconut-milk-frozen-desserts/cookie-dough)  Sadly my stomach is angry with me at all the fatty food I ate this weekend so I can't try it just yet.  I haven't tried any of that brand's stuff as I am okay with dairy, but cookie dough used to be my favorite!  

 

I don't know what I am going to eat for dinner, had some soup for lunch and it just made me feel bad.  May just make something very plain like annies mac and cheese with some green beans on the side.

oh dear..I'd be the size of a baby grand piano if that happened here.

 

I got this wonderful cilantro plant at the farmer's market, so I am thinking about making

 

Lime cilantro rice and

 

chicken and  mushroom quesadillas  (sans salsa for me)

 

Just a mini rant here:  why? why can't tomatoes and I get along?

 

this guy >>> tomato-smiley-emoticon-emoji.png should take example from this guy>>>...eggs-2-smiley-emoticon-emoji.pngwho managed to stop being a jerk and make friends with me after all these years. 

 

ok, I am done.  ^_^

Don't be done...that was fun :P

So wasn't able to make the meatloaf yesterday and hubs tummy was feeling better so he had Mexican take out.

Works out well as the traveling man flies in just before dinner time ... So our Mr. Padre dinner will happen tonight with a yummy cake of course...thinking very vanilla...the wandering sons favorite...well after super dooper chocolate...but sent that traveling with him.

oh you know me, I like to keep my ranting to a bare minimum...I mean, what's the point, really?  It won't make that tomato any more friendly.

Bitchy tomato.

That's funny. Tomatoes and I have decided to be friends. Sometimes. Other things still aren't friendly with me though.

 

Tonight was supposed to be a pork loin in the rotisserie but... the power went out yesterday and we got some dry ice to throw in the fridge and freezer and magically the power came back on after it got brought home. Still, my husband threw a block in the fridge and I don't think my roast thawed. <_< Tomatoes do sound yummy, maybe I'll talk myself into clothes and go shopping and have spaghetti. I was sort of planning a jammie day, but I can adjust if maybe there's a side trip to the gelato place. B)

NO kids today :)  so i got a ton of stuff that i have been procrastinating DONE.  got foodies for the kiddies for vbs, paid my property taxes (late, oops lolz i hate parting with that $$, but they get all 'pay your taxes' and i'm all like 'FINE!!!'  hrrmph...) paid some more other bills, post office, etc, etc.  i am about to eat (leftover pork loin w/sauerkraut and little potato & scallion pannycakes) then wait 20 min and go soak my head in the pool.  on a hot day like today, i usually go down and float in the river, but my friend's a-hole son and his (ugh a married couple who i think is sleeping with both of them eeew) friends have decided to drag a fifth wheel camper down to the property next to ours and they have, like, 6-8 kids <brats)  we had stuff we left down there (floats, torches, etc) and had to take it all to the house because they were destroying things.  

 

anyways, i hope they enjoy their tall grass - we used to mow the whole thing.  this year?  not so much.   :ph34r:  ;)

I hate when jerks spoil good things. <_< Maybe the lack of mowed grass will chase them off.

 

We went to the store and picked up stuff for spaghetti. I stopped in the store that makes their own sausages and got some regular mild Italian sausage and some sun-dried tomato basil chicken sausage to try. It's in the mid-50s and raining. Not gelato weather. :( I can try again soon though.

I used to eat gelato when it was snowing and 20 degrees and  I bet Love2travel ate it at -27. LOL

Gelato is not weather-determined. ^_^

 

Wow! From the sound of your last few posts, looks like your tyramine and histamine issues are resolved if you can eat sausages, aged cheeses

and tomatoes once more.

 

So happy for you!!! whoohoo!

I don't get my widespread pain anymore like I used to with foods. I can still set off more CRPS pain with too much of any one thing at a time, but I've found that my tolerance is way up. :D I still haven't done things like added bananas, soy... lots of things. The sausages I get are just fresh meat ground up, seasoned and stuffed in a casing. I'm not sure that counts as sausage since it's uncured and no weirdness in it, but it sure is delicious! I've learned a lot about being careful about what goes in me, and I'm still pretty vigilant and don't eat weird things.

 

And I'm all for gelato in any weather usually. Except when I'm in a tshirt and jumper and running around in the rain and cold and would have to eat it in a restaurant. I just thought since we can't afford to enjoy treats like that often, it would be better enjoyed in the evening after a hot day. :) Besides, I bought ice cream so I can make sundaes. B)

February 2006, in the middle of a streak of 10 degrees or less, it "spiked " to  35 one Sunday  and J and I got in the always good in snow and ice  Subie and drove 20 minutes to the ice cream parlor to have sundaes. We had to get out. You can get cabin fever up north after a while. ^_^  The woman who owned it decided to open her seasonal shop early for some strange reason (maybe she had cabin fever too) and she had put out an email announcing a Sunday night Sundae special..... here we are, just the two of us, eating hot fudge sundaes, next to a blazing fireplace.

I was sad when that ice cream place shut down. It was all hand -churned. yum!

 

In a weird irony, the next year, that place became the first home of "Sherry Lynn's Gluten Free"...a sign that prompted me to ask J..."what's gluten and why do we need to be free from it?"" J said "it's what makes the french baguettes we make rise. it's in the flour"....oh, I said and never thought another thing about...... until I had to.

 

 

Tonight is looking like mediterranean pork burgers with gremolata and watermelon, cuke and feta salad. (but no gelato. I had that Sunday night. the sea salt caramel one...dang, that stuff is good)

Are they allowed to live in a 5th wheel there?  Might be able to call the county or city on them.  I am surprised they "work".

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
