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

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
