I'm glad I'm such a source of amusement. :P

 

I have no idea what is for supper, but it's date day. We're going to the $1 theater today to see Divergent and getting gelato. Plus we're running a few errands down to Provo and I think we may stop and treasure hunt at the thrift shops, dollar stores and pawn shops. Gonna be an awesome day. B)

Oh god you people make me want cheesy food now! LOL!  Addy, I, too, love bargain shopping.  When it comes to non-necessities and clothes, I basically refuse to pay full price.

 

I have been in the interview process for a job where I train at the office for 2 months then work from home taking calls for a major company.  I checked my application status online and it says I will be getting an offer in a few days!  It will be 20 hours a week, perfect hours for me, and I can work more hours when I don't have to deal with a commute or physical limitations.  I don't want to tell friends and family until it is official but I can spill the beans to y'all :D  I haven't been able to work for over a year and a half, this is so exciting for me.  Will be a little rough working 5 hr days 5 days a week with a hefty commute at first, but afterwards it'll pay off.  I can work with no pants on!  (JK I always wear pants in the house because I don't want cat hair on my hiney)

 

Tonight I am going to roast a giant pork tenderloin from the stockpile I got for 25% off, with carrots and potatoes on the side.  It'll give us some leftovers for lunches.

Gratz!!! I love working for myself. I set my own hours and "show up" (which means walking to another room) to work most days in jammies. Things I wouldn't get the mail in. So liberating. Enjoy! :D

 

Great deals today. I picked up a few baskets to make liners for. Found 3 new stuffed giraffes to add to my giraffe sanctuary in the bedroom. Got two new cast iron pans to do. And at Big Lots I found Wise brand potato chips. They're made in the town I grew up in and aren't usually distributed this far west, or much of anywhere really. SO EXCITED!!! Gonna make some dip and stay up all night tonight watching tv with my husband and binging. :ph34r: Now it's off for gelato then a movie. ^_^

Right?  I no longer get to work in my business attire, but am jealous of your jeans and smartass t's  -- the rest of the forum we try to mind our potty mouths, but in the dinner thread you will find a few words more colorful than ass ;)

 

Country Ribs

Rice

Roasted Asparagus with almonds slices -- have recently discovered that the sliced almonds are lovely sprinkled over the rice too :)

I have a pork roast thawing that may be ready today. If it isn't we'll have chili. If it is, I'll make fried garlic green beans, ancho chili tater wedges and of coarse... rotisserie the roast. I like a garlic rosemary rub. I went put today and got some fabric for basket liners for $1 a yard! Yay!!! And I'm gonna go pick up a DDR dance pad for $5. I've been looking for one for months, I have the game and xbox but no pad. I'm super excited.

Down side to binge watching tv. We finished both seasons of Orange is the New Black in a week. Now what are we gonna watch? I'll have to find something new or maybe we'll rewatch all of MLP.

Was happy when I finished the new season of OITNB until I realized I now have to wait even longer until the next season....doh!

Btw...where does one find three giraffes in one day...I am on the lookout for one myself for my little backyard project.

We find stuffed giraffes with the stuffed animals at the thrift shops. We have Savers and DI here. Back home we had Salvation Army. Those types of stores. I also picked up 3 baskets to make liners for at $1 a piece. I have a real thing for baskets. I'm super excited. I may have to start using them for my giraffes because my baby cradle (the one my dad made for me for my first Christmas, still have it :wub:) is full to overflowing and there are giraffes all over the place. There isn't room for all of them. It's a regular giraffe disaster area in the bedroom. They're on every surface, even spilled onto the floor because I'm out of room. Baskets will help. :ph34r:

My new bedroom seems to have bees multiplying ;)

Was never a big fan of them, but since they've been dying off they are my new favorite cause!

I got those awesome new kitchen knives from my husband for Christmas. Since then I've used them probably every day and everything has gone well, even though they're probably sharp enough to cut to the bone in a blink. Well... until tonight. :ph34r: I knew it would eventually happen. I was cutting our roast for dinner, using a knife that's long and skinny and with a narrow point. I slid it in behind the fork to hold the roast down so I could move the fork and sort of, um, slid it right into my finger. Probably a whole 1/4 inch in. That sucker BLED! But I washed up, put a bandaid on tight enough to make it stop and got on with getting my dinner.

 

Happy thoughts though. We ran back out to the store to grab another DDR pad so we can play together. (For $5 why not?) We were on our way into the store discussing what to watch now and he says "I guess we could maybe watch Dr. Who." I grabbed his arm, looked straight at him and said "I've never been more in love with you than I am right now." He was less amused than me. :lol: At least we have something to watch. And dinner was delicious and I didn't even bleed all over it. :D

Oh No Addy!!!!  *Gives you a bandaid*  Stop being like me and demonstrating the un-safety of kitchen knives!  LOL!  At least you don't need stitches.  I keep disposable gloves in my house for when I cut myself and still need to cook.  I also handle raw poultry with them. 

 

Tonight for dinner is gonna be leftovers!  The most gourmet dinner of them all!

This is probably why my husband won't let me have my mandoline. He says crap about how they're not safe blah blah blah. I'm like they're fine, as long as you follow the instructions and use them properly. I'll probalby promptly slice the end of a finger off when I finally get one.  :lol:

 

Tonight will be leftover pork roast. We didn't get our potatoes last night because I wasn't thinking and am reseasoning a cast iron pan and the oven was being used for that. So, tonight we'll have our wedges. Last night we settled for fries for him and sweet potato hash browns for me. Very yummy!  ^_^

After the first time I had a gluten-free pizza from Costco they didn't have any more for a couple months, but I kept checking every time we went. Finally one afternoon we went around the corner and I saw them immediately halfway up the aisle. I yelled "ohmygawd pizza!!!" and sprinted to them and grabbed one out of the freezer. People were looking at me funny. I still don't care. :D

Get out of my head, that is what I am having, too!!!  Also if you 100% always use the hand guard, a mandoline is safer than trying to slice things with precision and a knife.  Use that argument to get the hubs to cave!

I, too, will squeal with joy, jump up and down, do the happy gasp thing.  I don't care, I am happy!  LOL  I also loudly grumble with disdain if the grocery stockers have stuck the gluteny version of a gluten-free product in its spot on the shelf!

Noooooooooo!  When she put it in quotes, she was implying it is fake rye.  But I totally understand the confusion there :wacko: .  Kind of like, I like the Rudis Multigrain bread, and I still call it wheat bread.  Because that is what it mimicks.  There are a few companies who make gluten-free mock-rye bread, I have had Schar's, it is great for deli style sammiches!

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
