Last night we went to the big Jazz in the Woods. No food allowed in except for medical reasons. But, as long as people weren't taking in big coolers, no one even checked. I took some nuts, some peppered salami, cheddar, grapes, cantelope, Glutino vanilla covered pretzels. Got som wine, some kettle corn and some more wine there.

Going back tonight. taking a smoked turkey sandwich, Fritos, maybe some fruit. Not sure yet.

That sounds really good!  What brand of salami do you eat?  I'd like to get some for summer picnics on the boat.  The brands that I've looked at in the store, so far, are gluten free.  AND, is all kettle corn gluten-free?  The stuff you buy at fairs and festivals?  Can it be trusted?  I love kettle corn!!

Kettle corn should theoretically be gluten free. It's just (usually) oil, sugar and corn and when I see places that make it at markets, carnivals and fairs it's the only thing they do. Just ask what the ingredients are then enjoy! :)

What Addie said about kettle corn .

I eat several brands of salami - boars head & Columbus are 2 that I can think of.

Food not too appealing today, so I am having a Wendy's vanilla frosty! Putting a chuck roast in the crock pot for tomorrow. I am allergic to cooking on Sunday. Actually, between church and having to travel an hour each way, and then another meeting in town at 4:00, I don't have the time. Our church has food after service but with this new eating deal, that will be out the window! It is taking me a while to adjust, throw the summer time on top of it, when who feels like eating heavy meals and I may have this down by Thanksgiving. LOL

our church has dinners/luncheons and at first, i skipped them.  for, like, a year.  it was just too painful/tempting  :(  now, i just make a big dish of something gluten-free and serve myself first (actually, i take some out before and take it in a separate container to bring with me)  don't be tempted to go ahead and eat:  i play the 'can't eat that' game with myself at these type of functions.  by the time everyone is served, just about every dish is off limits for some reason or another  <_<  even if it started out gluten-free, it doesn't take long for somebody to stick a spoon into it that was just in a pasta dish, lolz   :o   

 

i have no clue what to make for dinner.............................. :huh:

Pork tenderloin on the grill, some baked spaghetti squash, maybe some garlic and EVOO sauteed zucchini noodles.

 

Not very hungry for some reason, but oddly, I want kettle corn now.... ^_^

Is Kettle Corn another name for Pop Corn?  Am I missing out on something?

 

Probably a bug and bacteria laden salad tonight.  The washing machine is busy  :P

kettle corn is just sweetened popcorn.

or this lady recommends

 

"Take a trip to the county fair with a bowl of old-fashioned Kettle Corn. Your family will never want plain popcorn again! If you use white sugar, it will taste like popcorn balls and if you use brown sugar, it will taste like caramel corn."

We are having quesadillas tonight and some sort of chicken tomorrow. I'm not into cooking today.

 

I am having the best day ever though. I woke up to find Final Fantasy 3 on sale, it's a new release for computers and I was so excited I almost threw my wallet at my computer. :lol: I meant to play a little and get a nap. I played 2 hours without realized how much time went by. :ph34r: I think I'll go get a brownie, cup of milk and get that nap I was after.

We are grilling pizza - too hot to warm up the house. I am making some pesto to go on it with some fresh moz, maybe a smidge of pasta sauce.

Last night we had Thai curry with tofu, veggies, and rice noodles. For dessert we had fresh cherries and So Delicious Coconut Milk Ice cream. (the no sugar added variety)

 

It was so good!

 

The only trouble was that the curry was a hot meal for a hot day. I need to come up with cooler meal ideas.

So hard to choose.......

Dogs and cats, of course. I love sea turtles.... But then there are sea otters.... The wrens in the nest on my screened in porch.... And what about dolphins? Orcas? Those are great! Bunnies.... Pterodactyls. - love to see them flying with their funny long legs hanging behind.

Oh wait! Red pandas! Love those little guys. Tried to get my hair dresser to dye my hair that color more than once.

Guinea pigs! Love them! Love the wild versions, like capybaras and rock cavies! Golden lion tamarins ... Oh heck.... All those little monkeys are fun!

I just can't choose! I hope that was helpful! Lol

favorite wild animals... lemurs and wolves

 

Favorite domesticated animal.... dog, rabbit, cat

 

happen to also have 3 guinea pigs.  they just have a hard time being picked up.  You have to wait a very long time for them to climb onto your hand.

Irish is easy, she likes bunnies! And I know Bartfull isn't here to speak for herself but she likes elephants. Both perfectly decent animals for people who aren't into giraffes. :P

I meant to say lemurs, too! Love those guys! I really like giraffes, but Addy had that covered.

I just scooped my piggies up and set them right on a towel and then carried them. They don't like getting picked up but they really hate the feeling of legs dangling and flying , thinking a hawk has them!

Ohhhhh.... Piggies.... Pot bellied piggies, baby piggies......

Am I helping you narrow these animals down, Skilisa?

oh you betcha.....I do love my bunnies! but I am afraid my list would sound much like K's....I am a huge animal lover and it would be difficult to choose

any "favorites"...I love horses very much, dolphins, manatees, sea turtles...and of course, dogs, cats, birds of all species, but I favor finches and hummingbirds--the more exotic the better ... and peacocks!

 

I think the jaguar is stunningly beautiful. And how could you not love pandas? I should stop now. lol

 

so, Ski,  does this backyard project involve an ark? 

 

I am going out to Bonefish for dinner and having that awesome sea bass or salmon with mango salsa and whatever else strikes my fancy. i worked hard around the house this weekend and I just did grueling PT, so I figure, I earned it. :)

    • I do est out occasionally - but not indiscriminately.  I am careful to choose places that under stand gluten free.  And places that the food is naturally gluten-free, helps, too.  Celiacs can't just eat something that should be gluten-free and hope it is.  We have to use some common sense and ask questions.  
    • You are right that the next step is an endoscopy, which still is the "gold standard" in diagnosing celiac disease.   However, for various reasons the endoscopy is not done because financial contraints  or long wait times (up to a year!), or too ill to proceed.   You have two positives.  You only need one positive to move forward.    The TTg tests  do not need to be positive for a diagnosis (which requires a positive on an antibodies test which you had and an endoscopy).  My TTg tests were negative and I only had a positive on the DGP IGA, yet biopsies revealed a Marsh Stage IIIB (moderate to severe damage. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Unless your PCP is a celiac expert (unlikely), I would insist on a GI consult.   Please find one who is celiac-savvy.   keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete (biopsies done).  You never know if lab results are going to get lost.  Besides any celiac testing requires the patient to be on a gluten diet.  In the meantime, keep on researching.  Only YOU can be your best health advocate!  
    • I'm having some issues, that I didn't really even know I was having until the blood work showed them. Retracing my steps, I eat very strictly gluten free at home. I eat too much dairy (which is not only a problem for many celiacs, it is also not an anti-inflammatory). The husband and I have eaten out a lot over the last three years of my diagnosis. I guess I have not been overly cautious as I should have been, which I'm guessing could be my problems (although I am seeing the GI doctor tomorrow). So, I'm wondering if anyone here no longer eats out ever? Were you eating out and realized you were still doing yourself damage? 
    • I have been gluten free for three years and I had never *noticed* any neck swelling... but recently at a routine appointment they noticed my neck was swollen. Thyroid ultrasound and thyroid blood work was good. I went to my primary care doctor and she did some blood work. Slight elevation in platelets, elevated C reactive protein, somewhat anemic. Going to GI doctor tomorrow to get some more input into this. Tracing my steps, I bet I cross-contaminate myself way too often as the husband and I eat out too much. I guess we will see....
    • Hello!  How long have you been gluten free? A lot of celiac patients gain weight when starting gluten free diets, for various reasons. Surprisingly, many times their diet becomes more unhealthy calorie-wise than it ever was! I am living proof of this. I have several "kick start" diets I recommend to all my gluten-free friends. If you tell me more about yourself and what kinds of foods you like, maybe I can help?
