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!

    • Coping with gas!?
      Hi everyone,  I hope you're all having a better Tuesday than me :P. So after nearly 2 years of knowing that I am most likely Celiac, I have narrowed down my reactions to gluten into three categories. 1. When I realize I accidently ate a significant amount of gluten. Symptoms are pretty immediate and almost identical to the stomach flu- vomiting, terrible stomach pain, body aches, lower back and knee pain, headache and stiffness, diarrhea. This will usually last about 24 hours before I can start trying to eat food again. 2. When I realize I ate a small amount of gluten (i.e. a hidden ingredient in something). The most prominent symptom here is a burning pain in my lower abdomen.  3. When I know I must have eaten something off but cannot identify it. This is usually a more mild version of 1 and 2. Mostly nausea, tiredness, stomach discomfort, and a ridiculous amount of terrible smelling gas.  Today is a number 3 day. It has felt like my stomach has been constantly churning all day. I keep on feeling like I'm finally going to poop but then it's just gas. Just like the rest of my symptoms, I have absolutely no idea what to do for this! Are there any products you guys could recommend for settling my stomach and relieving the gas? Also, if you have any suggestions for #1 and 2 I would so gladly appreciate it! Doctors have been thoroughly unhelpful with symptom relief. "Just don't eat gluten" is their suggestion. If only they knew how it feels to get glutened... Thanks guys! Kristen 
    • Gluten ataxia?
      I have Celiac Disease and Diabetes.  Sounds to me like you're experiencing a low blood sugar episode.  Did anyone test your blood glucose level during your hospital visit?   When I get low, I get the drunk-wonky vision, too.  After going gluten-free, I found I had to eat more often to avoid those crashes.  I sometimes wake to a crash just like you did.  Have honey or other sweet next to bedside just in case.  If you get too low you will pass out. Low cost blood glucose meters are available at drug stores.  I suggest you get one just to rule low blood sugar out.    Many blessings
    • Celiac - Not yet diagnosed but feel like I'm dying.
      Hi Dylan I just wanted to join SLLRunner in welcoming you to the forum and yes, do ask to be tested for Celiac and Chrons. My nutritionalist told me that celiac disease is a great mimicker of many illnesses which I think must make a doctor's job all the harder when it comes to diagnosis.  For many of us it took us  a long time to get a diagnosis - for about eight years before my own diagnosis I had ulcers,  odd migraines and hallucinations on waking, anxiety, elevated blood protein but no obvious cause for it, anemia, numb hands and arms in the mornings, and eventually the abdominal pain and severe diarrhea. It was all scary stuff but  it was only when I got the last two symptoms, for six weeks, that I was tested for celiac disease (for the protocol here in the UK is that if you have a new gastric symptom for more than six weeks you should have further investigations).  I still wonder if I hadn't had that gastric pain and diarrhea whether my doctors would have even thought it was celiac related? After all you have been through it is not surprising that you are feeling depressed.  A lot of people feel very depressed and anxious before their diagnosis.  You are doing the right thing seeing a new doctor, and hopefully you are just around the corner from getting some long awaited answers.   Keep us posted.  You will find  some great advice here and support during your journey.  All the very best.

      This forum post came up when I Google searched Kirkland Dish Soap. I called them today and they said there is no gluten in the dish soap. Janis 
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      In light of the studies that found some probiotics that are labeled gluten-free yet tested over 20ppm I wouldn't touch them. Now those would be the powder or pill forms. Yogurt is not affected by that. Since you don't have a problem with dairy then I would say eat some yogurt every day. I like Chobani Greek because it has more kinds of cultures. Remember now that powder or pill forms of probiotics do not come under the gluten-free labeling law. The same for OTC & prescription meds. You need to check every single one of those. There are a few online sites where you can check things like that or ask here but as far as prescription meds -- call the manufacturer EVERY TIME. I also wanted to tell you in case you didn't already know that since celiac is genetic and can present at ANY age then all your first degree relatives need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms and immediately if symptoms present between the 2 year periods. As far as the digestive enzymes go, I tried Digest Gold for a short time & it really didn't seem to do anything for me however I will say I had a lot of issues going on at the time so I might not know if they helped or not. I decided to quit them in order to take that out of the equation so I could try to pin down what was causing me distress. The fewer things in the mix you know. I have heard people report the same as your consultant said. Some say they helped & some say they didn't. Remember Jammy, you're just in the beginning stages. I KNOW you want to heal & heal FAST. Been there, done that! It's like this: you didn't get sick overnight & you're not going to heal overnight. Patience is the watchword here. It's hard I know! You just want to get on with your life. We can all relate.  Again, I'm going to say to eat foods easy on your gut. WELL cooked foods. No raw carrots, coconut, nuts & stuff like that. Easier on your gut would be nut butters.... peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter etc.... It's sort of like being a baby ---  soft, easy to digest foods. Bone broth is a great healer for you gut & extremely nutritious as well as being easy on the digestion. Here's just one recipe: http://wellnessmama.com/5888/how-to-make-bone-broth/

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
