Gracie wandered the woods in NY and never had a single flea. None of the cats either.....until the last year we were there.Started seeing fleas

on our feet as we walked on the carpet. Dang! so, what happened?

 

 

We had used Frontline for years, then Advantage. Then, the flea infestation.
 
Our vet encouraged us to switch up treatments. She felt they could lose effectiveness, 
 
We have to use Revolution now---Florida comes with a different set of rules for pets apparently---

and heartworm is a bigger issue here.Just a suggestion.

 

Dinner last night was ice cream. And a cookie. 

 

I am hoping for more sustenance today, but it depends on how well i can swallow....Soup may be the answer. 

 

note to self: don't sip from the same water bottle as the hubs when he says "I think my allergies are kicking up"

 

That wasn't your " allergies',  dude.  <_< ah well....this, too shall pass.  ^_^

Went to the grocery store for milk and they had Nut Thins on sale so I got those, $2.50/box :D.  Now that most of the new labels are on the shelves, It sure was quicker picking out foods today.  I didn't get much but everything I picked up said Gluten Free right on the label.

Made chicken breasts marinaded in Walden Farms Bacon Ranch dressing--gluten-free and NO calories :D.  and then breaded with some bread crumbs I made from the ends of my Udi bread.  Nummy.

 

Hubs made cupcakes from a King Arthur (I think) box mix.  They are a little dry but not bad.  I got some Cream Cheese frosting to put on them.

I was rather under the weather for a few days. The weather overnight Friday night was stormy and when I got up Saturday I wasn't even sure if it would clear enough for me to go to the market since I don't use a canopy. But it cleared up enough for me to see blue sky over the lake to the west so I headed down. The weather turned out perfect too! Except that it was so cool and perfect it didn't occur to me not to stand in the sun like a moron all day, so I got burnt and ended up sick from it too. Derp. It's easy to forget that sunburn can happen just as fast in cool weather just as it cools off. Lesson learned.

 

But I'm feeling much better, so tonight was taco night. Tomorrow is fish n chips night. I think I'll make some rolls or biscuits or something tomorrow too. And chocolate chip cookies. I'm enjoying this new ATK cookbook way too much. ^_^

I told these guys I heard from you a few times and that you were transitioning well to your new home, but it's not the same as having you here  "back at the dinner table" with us  :D

xxoo 

 

Still feeling lousy, Going to make soup in the slow cooker....right after this short nap.

They're right, it is good to have you back! Seeing what you're having is always an inspiration to try new and interesting things.

 

A few ears of red corn were ready out in the garden so we'll be adding those to dinner tonight. First picked of the year. It has such an amazing flavor that isn't like any other corn we've ever had (which is why we planted this kind) and we can't wait for it to be time to eat tonight and it's still barely past noon! ^_^

I've never heard of red corn..sounds really good!!

 

I have ribs out for dinner.  Hubs will be home really late so I may do two batches of them so they are fresh when he gets home.

Red corn sounds cool...can't remember where I heard someone was making "Christmas Enchiladas" with red corn tortillas...oh ya, it was on the funnypages from a grade school friend.

Tonight is Baked fish and veggie foil packets with a new dressing I picked up on sale 'Mango Chipoltle'.

Mango slices on the side.

Needed to leave the house today, so went to the store for a watermelon as a consolation prize. It'll be a perfect dessert for the night. The weather is delightful. Cloudy, cool, breezy. Couldn't be better. B)

Not sure what I'm going to make tonight.  Hubs has been working really late all week so I might just skip making anything tonight and just eat whatever :D

Chicken Stir fry.  Wanted to try the San-J Thai peanut sauce but the grocery didn't have it.  Will have to try to make something myself. I never write down how much of what I put in and then - if its yummy - I can't remember what I did the last time!  Probably just melt a little PB and mix with soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, a few pepper flakes, maybe a splash of rice vinegar....

 

Kids are both at college now.  I am trying to use up stuff I have.  Went to the grocery and didn't get any chocolate milk or gatorade or crackers....  Sort of odd.   :unsure:

Kinda odd is right.  Last I went shopping I put his Peach Snapple in the cart, then almost cried.  Skipped the frozen food section all together.  Interesting thing is we talk on the phone more often then we ever talked when he was here.  Don't know if I'll ever get over him being on his own.

 

Hubs put a roast in the KFG, it smells good already  :D

Thank you!  It is nice to be back.  We have now had the internet up and running for a consecutive week!  Yay!!  :D

 

Colleen, of course... if you would like Croatia pictures, I would be happy to email you some, if I am able to choose from the 873,601,274 we have! 

 

Hopefully you are all healthy and back to your normal selves.  :)

 

Tonight is:

 

Roasted chicken breasts with slow-roasted tomato, red pepper and onion sauce.  Chicken pounded thinly to cook evenly and to prevent from drying out.

Herb-roasted cauliflower

Cucumber coleslaw

Fresh blackberry tart which I am about to make.  :)

 

Yes, I am still in the honeymoon phase here :wub: but it is so marvelous to have access to such amazing fresh foods here!  I love foraging for berries.  I would like to for all sorts of mushrooms, too, but will hold off until I can go with someone who knows what they are doing.  And white truffle season begins in about a month...sigh...my weakness!  ^_^  Well, one of my weaknesses!  :lol:

Something has been setting off my stomach the past couple days.  I don't know if it's gluten or just maybe a bug of some kind??  I haven't eaten out, house is gluten-free so no idea what it could be.  Only thing I can think of is maybe Rice Chex and maybe I just can't do rice for a while??  I've had rice chex with peaches the past couple days, Udi bread with peanut butter (that was new and not exposed to gluten stuff), Ore Ida hash browns--says gluten-free on the bag, BBQ ribs--BBQ sauce says gluten-free but I do a rub of a BBQ spice mix that is gluten-free and brown sugar.  Is brown sugar not gluten-free????

Yes.  Brown sugar is gluten-free.  Unless its left-over from gluten baking and might have had measuring cups traveling from the flour into the sugar?

 

There are a lot of ingredients in all those foods -Chex, Udi's, BBQ sauce, etc.  Hard to figure out what might be an issue.  Maybe try less processed foods for a few days?  I don't know what it is about gluten-free breads, gums maybe?  But I can't eat them everyday or my system gets "off".  Ore Ida potato products I could eat everyday......  and I have the thighs to prove it!   :lol:

Brown sugar I just opened to make the ribs and since opening is in a brand new storage container so that should be ok.  I forgot coffee and coffee creamer, N-joy brand fake creamer but it says gluten-free online so who knows.  The coffee is "Donut House" , not flavored, Keruig stuff.  It's also hard to know if it's a response right away to what I'm eating--so the rice chex or peaches, or from last night, ribs and potatoes.  I LOVE Ore-Ida french fries and hash browns :D.  Did you know they sell chopped frozen onions too :D.

I use that Keruig coffee! I have been using the frozen onions for .........my whole life!

Anyway..... I am back to - cut out the processed, multi- ingredient stuff for a couple of weeks and see if you feel better. Then add them in one at a time.

Awesome!!

Just picks up a few pounds of thick and along with a few pounds of regular sliced....whatever shall I do?

Hey where is our bacon dancing dude?

Dinner is fresh yellowtail...I can't eat it even seared of late so made some interesting dipping sauce for my sashimi slices. Hubs is eating light with me and then off to ride around the city in an unruly mob...just kidding...I just don't enjoy ridding in groups...too nerve racking. Just slightly bummed the monthly critical mass ride fell on a Friday night that I feel human and the younger men are all busy....oh well will plan a date night again later.

Oh hey...I do have a date...my new puppy I found while on a bunny hunt ;)

Happy Friday Dinner Peeps (will insert lover boy later when on PC)

    • You're welcome! Yes, I too, hate waiting for lab results. Ugh!
    • I understand this is not a doctor's office and that I need proper testing done to rule out Celiac disease, however, I am stuck waiting until November to even see a GI doctor. So I need some suggestions soon on which test to go for first and what to do as I wait. Also do note, I am 28 years old.

      Right now, the most suspecting culprits to my symptoms have been Gallbadder, Celiac disease, and IBS. I have also been recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes and I am obese.  My Ultrasound and CT scan have all come up as normal and no signs of gallstones. However, I was in extreme pain as my upper abdomen was examined during the ultra sound. My white blood cell count also seems to be high at 12,000 but all blood work came back normal for liver and everything else.

      Symptoms included are: diarrhea
      yellow-stools (Sometimes foul smelling but always sink)
      light gnawing pain in area a few inches above belly button
      burning in chest
      sometimes pain below upper right rib cage.
      Tenderness all around the upper abdomen, but more so on the right and center.
      burping frequently after meals
      Gassy
      bloating in abdomen The pains used to come and go for the past few years as something very mild, but then the yellow stools happen at least four months ago and at a constant rate. Everyday it is either yellow or orange.  Sometimes the stools are lose and other times they are not. Two months in, I was finally diagnosed with pre-diabetes and have been having a strict low calorie and non fatty diet.

      So far the upper right pain has subsided but the pain above my belly button would continue. The gassy and bloated feeling would come and go as well. I get severe heart burn after almost every meal. But I felt it especially after eating whole wheat sandwiches or whole wheat pasta. I however don't feel it when I eat a Nature Valley granola bar, or pack of peanut butter crackers. I also had a chicken and vegetable stir fry with soy sauce cooked in that also had little effect on me. A bowl of cereal also made the heart burn act up pretty bad. I sometimes feel numb or light headed after various meals. Especially larger ones. In fact, it seems the more I eat, the worse I feel. But the less in the stomach, the more the pain above my belly button starts to act up.

      It is usually in the morning and afternoon I feel the most with gas and bloating. Especially after any large meals from the previous day. Despite the diet and work outs I have had, nothing has changed the stools. However, taking fish oil pills has greatly reduced the pain in my upper abdomen as well as the pain  in the the area above my belly button. My question now is, is there a very likely chance of this being celiac disease? Should I go on a gluten free diet to test since I Have to wait so long? Also, which test should I ask the doctor for first, as it will take a GREAT deal of time to pay off each one. Colonoscopy, HIDA scan, or endoscopy. 

      Again, I understand this isn't a site to get compete medical advice or to know exactly what my illness is, but I am trying to narrow down the possibility or what is most likely. If this has a chance of being celiac disease, I would rather know sooner than later.
    • Thank you very much for all the info Squirmingitch. The doctor told me as we were talking he was going to order some tests with urine so I don't know why he didn't mark that. Maybe he forgot as we were talking? Duly noted about the bladder Cancer to watch out for too. Doctor said it will take about a week to get the lab results back usually from this lab. The wait will seem like forever I'm sure. Yes I will press to have the other tests done too if this one comes back negative.
    • http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Was your hubs tested for total IgA to see if he's IgA deficient? Read this thread: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/83660
    • Yes, bone density problems are all part of the celiac "umbrella" so to speak and yes, osteoporosis tends to happen more rapidly and at earlier ages than normal when malabsorption is happening. At age 43, it's not normal to have osteoporosis as you describe so that's another part of the jigsaw puzzle. Time to receive blood test results back from the doc are entirely dependent on the particular lab they were sent to. Yep, it's time for you to start keeping a very close check on the PSA in light of your father having had prostrate cancer. I would think you should get a PSA every year. I really would have liked to see him do a urinalysis. With the prostrate cancer your father had, it would seem a close watch should be kept on you for bladder cancer as well. The first symptom of that is blood in the urine but it's generally microscopic before you're ever able to actually see it. That happens to be the 8th most common cancer in men & it's moving up in the rankings. I know this because my hubs had it. The good news is that it's also one of the easiest and most successfully treated provided it's caught early. Certainly starting @ age 50, men should see a urologist every year. BTW, in the last year before I found out I was celiac, I turned up with microscopic blood in my urine. I got it checked out thoroughly since I know about bladder cancer & all tests, ultrasounds, cystoscopy, CT scan etc... turned out fine. The docs were stumped & finally said, "apparently that's just what your body does". Guess what? That's not "just" what MY body does. Once I went gluten-free, I have had no more microscopic blood in my urine. Interesting eh? Before now I didn't realize you are in Canada. The doc didn't do the full celiac panel but I understand the initial screening protocols in Canada only order the TTG but if that comes back negative be sure & press for the full panel as cyclinglady said. We have several here who tested like cyclinglady so it's not a rare thing, it's just not the norm. I'm glad he's doing the B-12 & Ferritin -- those can be big clues.
