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

    • Blood sugar, hunger, celiac
      Thanks for your reply. I'm not sure how much fat I'm having, I will check. That could be contributing. Yup I do know about the link between Type 1 and celiac. But when it was first discovered my blood sugar was high, my insulin was tested and it was high...actually it was double the normal amount. C-peptide was tested too and I don't remember exactly but I think it was slightly high? If I had Type 1 or LADA, wouldn't my insulin be lower? It is strange though how I have none of the risk factors for insulin resistance and/or type 2... And in fact I had been on a super healthy whole food, "anti-candida" diet for several years before my blood sugar suddenly went really wacko!

    • Chipolte New Marinade
      I don't think any of their food was " certified" gluten-free?  
    • "Pre-Celiac" & scared
      Is there anyone else "pre-celiac" and asymptomatic like me who has had long-term success without losing their mind and still enjoying eating out without feeling like you have to stay in a plastic bubble?  This site has been helpful to me these past months.   I don't have it "Yet" and I am scared.  Sorry this is long but I wanted to be thorough: Two years ago I started experiencing GERD (heart burn, pain under my left rib cage, and regurgitation).  After trying probiotics, kambucha, kefir, apple cider vinegar, aloe juice, eliminating chocolate, citrus, tomatoes, spices, cinnamon, mint, alcohol, not eating 3 hours before bed, I was no better. I got an endoscopy/colonoscopy.  The dr found gastritis and esophagitis.  No hernia, infection or ulcer.  He started me on PPI.  I got 99% relief.  After 6 months I decided to go off PPI.  After suffering for 3 months, I went back to dr and back on PPIs for a year.  Because I am young, 39, and the PPIs have side effects, he discussed surgery with me. I went to a specialist. All the tests showed my esophagus was normal but my lower esophageal sphincter was not closing properly.  I was a good candidate and decided on the MUSE, (Endoscopically stapling the esophagus to prevent reflux) When the specialist did his endoscopy (1 year after previous one and before I was on PPIs regularly)  he saw villi damage that looked like textbook Celiac.  HUH?  I don't have ANY symptoms.  No cramps, vomiting, diarrhea, bloating, gas, discomfort, NOTHING.  He took biopsies and the results were "non-specific" perhaps "clinically latent celiac sprue" or a number of other things. So I took blood tests.  The celiac gene test was "susceptible" and I had "high" antibodies, but not positive.  Dr said go gluten-free to prevent  celiac. Did the PPIs cause the villi damage because I couldn't absorb the wheat properly and triggered celiac in me?  It sounds reasonable.   I wonder if now that I have had the MUSE and may be able to stop PPIs, will I be able to digest gluten better? Very interesting.  I plan to call a celiac specialist where I live to discuss this with him. I have not eaten gluten intentionally for 2.5 months now.  It did not help my GERD before the surgery.  Dr said they were unrelated anyway.  I am concerned about CC, breathing in, and accidental ingestion, but since I have no symptoms, I can never tell.  So I take glutenease when I eat out and glutamine powder to try to repair the damage.  How careful should I be since I don't have it "yet"? Amy's gluten-free frozen foods are great, and I read every label at Trader Joe's, eat off the gluten-free menu, corn tortillas @ Mexican, no soy sauce or imitation crab @ sushi, steamed veggies @ Chinese, & gluten-free pasta @ Italian. Member Lisa wrote, "Even though you eat as gluten free as possible, you probably consume close to that amount of gluten due to cross contamination in processed gluten free food and other exposures. ...Eating 100% gluten free is a total improbability. "
      Most people with Celiac can handle 20ppm.  So is that equivalent to breathing in flour?  Having a half a teaspoon of soy sauce by accident in Asian food?  I can live without bread and cookies, but gluten is IN  so many things. Some on this site with Celiac have separate toasters, don't eat out, and don't walk into bakeries while there are others that eat out and eat fries made in shared oil at BK.  Even I haven't done that.  Isn't it dangerous? Thank you for you help!!
    • Pins And Needles
      You sure did nail it! I was too worried it was MS or Lupus or Celiac to be able to really give that option a chance. If anything my guess was low b12. The only obvious things in my diet are Vitamin water and protein bars. If you look at food it's in practically everything in pretty high doses. Going gluten-free uncovered this or made it start. MTHFR gene maybe? Magnesium too low? I haven't taken my multi & am looking up everything I'm eating. Still having the twitches but not near as much in my calves and feet. My arch pain is gone & energy is up a bit. Still twitching though and had some arm and shoulder pain overnight. I read it can be 6 months or longer for nerves to heal.
