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

lol...this sounds like me...basically every creature.

What is everyone's favorite animal?  Play along please -- it is for a fun project in my backyard.  All welcome...

 

Cats!!!!!!

 

I am a crazy cat lady. But I just have one because my husband wisely says no to new additions.  LOL.  I like dogs and all animals, too, but he is not a dog person so I have fallen even more in love with this silly kitty.  But don't bring cute bunnies around me, I am deathly allergic!  LOL (Monty Python jokes abound)

 

My enchiladas turned out really good last night, used this recipe: http://www.101cookingfortwo.com/easy-sour-cream-chicken-enchiladas/ using white corn tortillas and brown rice flour.  Wanted to spice it up a little so I put a few tblsp of Stubbs green chile sauce in with the chicken.  Used 1 lb cooked chicken and a can of black beans for a complete meal.  Yum Yum!  Made half and froze half for later since it makes a lot.

 

Tonight, I will probably throw together a stir fry.  I bought the SanJ szechuan sauce and it is just too hot for me, so I am using a mild one on mine and using up the hot one on my husbands stuff, LOL.

I totally agree about the San-J Szechuan sauce! I found some for 79 cents a bottle at the discount store and my husband is having to use most of it up!

My husband is a cat person. I'm allergic, break out in hives if they touch me. Hate the things. <_< I like dogs though! ^_^ My bff is allergic to bunnies too. I didn't find out until after I got one and she can't hang out at my house anymore. :( The Monty Python bunny was added to WoW as a boss you could fight, it took 20 people (or more), had an ability called Huge Sharp Teeth that could pretty much instantly kill people and after you killed it it dropped a pet bunny that only one person could get, that was all bloody on it's face and front paws. It. Was. Awesome. Also, you can get a stuffed Monty Python bunny. http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/778d/ :D

 

My plan for tonight was chicken. I'm sticking with it and making dinner for my husband but I got sicker and sicker yesterday as the day went on. I couldn't eat last night. I may try making a little applesauce this afternoon and see how that works and if it does, try a little chicken but I'm not getting my hopes up.

I am going to make some roasted tomatillos (with fingers crossed that salsa verde is kinder to me than red tomatoes)

and then, make chicken enchiladas.

 

but first, I am headed for a tool around town on my new bike --with the awesome new fiber optic handlebar streamers that I received yesterday (omg, thank you, dear Ski! they rock!! ) and then, head to the  pool for some backwards walking. Don't laugh--great for strengthening gluts, hammies and quads. :)

 

Caio, dinner peeps! Bon appetit! xx  

 

And remember, drink more wine---it's good for you and thank the heavens, it's  gluten free!!!!!

Last night I made a turkey breast in the crockpot!  That is the way to cook them.  It was falling off the bones good!  I got the biggest one the store had - 7.5 pounds.  It just barely fit in the pot.  Put a 1/4 cup or so of water, a stick of butter in the "cavity" and sprinkled freeze dried poultry seasoning on it.  

 

I thought I would have lots of left-overs but hub ate a pound by himself.  Then M came home from working and ate a pound.  I think I have enough to make a turkey pot pie tonight (unless M has to stay late at work) and a few sandwiches.  I had hoped to have sandwiches for M to take to work this week.

Yum...hubs has been asking for Turkey here...may have to spring for full price -- lol -- I usually buy them during the holidays and freeze -- especially the non-caged dudes the day after Turkey Day....failed in that mission this year and everyone is craving Turkey!!!!  Guess they'll appreciated my hording of the inexpensive bird in the future ;)

 

Off to blow sunshine into Mom's apartment and take care of Dad's paperwork...after a short mental health attitude adjusting walk down at the bay :)

 

Dinner tonight is turkey if I find a nice breast, chicken if I dont!

The funny thing is, neither of them was that excited about the thought of turkey.  Until they smelled it!

That sounds totally delicious.  Bone in, I assume?  I noticed one on markdown sale at the store a few weeks ago and this old lady ran up and sniped it from me!  I was like hey... that was my cheap meat :o     LOL

Yess!!!!  I seriously have dreams that go this way.  LOL

 

Tonight will be grilled pork chops, mini corn cobs, a dollop of leftover beans, and some peas or something to fill up the plate.

Always hold cheap meat or put it in your cart while making considerations. The snipes are everywhere. :ph34r:

Not planning dinner really. I made a small pot of chicken soup last night that I may decide to have a bit of later. Maybe not. We'll see.

 

But, I went to the store a bit ago for some Gatorade and stopped in the new gelato place just to chat and see what's safe. The owner has a bunch of allergies and was super helpful, put me in touch with his daughter who will get back to me. So excited. And my husband who thought he wasn't a fan of gelato after Talenti sprung for a watermelon flavored one and is now super in love with the stuff. :D

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
