Thanks Irish! :) The zucchini that I got given to me were enormous and the pancake recipe came nowhere near using them up! I will check those out.

 

I used to work in South Florida--I did a 9 month missionary project down in the Florida Keys. While I was there I stayed on Grassy Key, about 6 miles from the town of Marathon.

Yummy zoodles....I eat them with all kinds of sauce or butter and garlic....good stuff! Recently replaced my large countertop spirilizer with a handlehld little one that works great with less clean up...shaped like two cones with their tips joined...I think I may have linked to it before...will check when back on laptop.

Glad you had a great time Addie, but if I head to salt lake anytime soon it'll be to snowbird and alta, perhaps a day at brightstar (oldest son's first day on skis was there at three years old...we have loads of fun memories in Utah). Hubs and I used to stay in a tiny hotel in Heber city for 10-12 days for 22 bucks a night with a kitchenette...even before celiac...we always wanted a kitchen when we traveled to save money...and then drove to all the resorts from Park City to Snowbird...skipped deer park their lift tickets were much more expensive....man I miss those trips! Once the Olympics were there the prices never came back down :(

People have been talking about how they want the summer Olympics here. I see some of those slideshows of the abandoned, awful places after the Olympics are over and how everything falls apart and nothing ever gets used again. That just didn't happen here so people are pretty eager to do the summer thing. Even though I wasn't here when Utah hosted the winter Olympics, I really hate the idea. The spillover of tourists and traffic will come all the way down to me I'm sure, and my husband uses the freeway to travel to work every day. I could skip the whole thing. Of course, I skip the whole snow thing too. :P

 

Besides all the normal geek stuff I did that I was (and still am) super excited about, I did some new things too. There is a local (to Utah) dance theater group called Odyssey Dance Theatre that does a show called Thriller every Halloween that I always mean to go to but forget to get tickets until they sell out. They did a shortened version of the show there on two days, which was incredible. It's part dance, part theater, and all awesome. The Salt Lake Pops Orchestra did an hour long show to end the night Friday night. It was entirely popular geek movie and TV show music. So besides just being a geek I got some culture too. ^_^

 

Tonight I'll make battered fish and probably tater tots. No matter how crappy I'm still feeling, cleaning up after three days has to be on my to-do list and so does sewing so I'll be working for at least part of my day and don't want to put to much effort into supper. I'm also just counting down til I get incredibly sick with what my husband is finally getting over. He loves to share. <_<

Lentil soup (with kale and rainbow quinoa in it for a little variation) and hopefully either homemade bread or pull apart dinner rolls, whichever I get around to making this afternoon.

Hubs took me out for lunch today.  Went to the Roosters place.  I talked to the Kitchen Mgr., as usual, and they use sauces and seasoning on the grill.  He offered to clean a section of grill for me to make my chicken.  So thankful to this Manager.  He went beyond what I expected  :D   Had a wonderful Chicken Cesar Salad.   Yummmmm

i make zucchini lasagne that is delicious and easy - just make like you would 'normally' make lasagne except sub zucchini sliced thin lengthwise for noodles.  it takes longer to cook, depending on how soft you like your 'noodles'  :)

I'm dining out of my go bag. Mom was transferred from hospital to rehab and caught a nasty bug along the way...so I'm sticking with her for now until her lungs clear.

So almonds, Justin's chocolate almond butter, astronaut veggie/fruit squeezes along with tons of coffee ;)

PS...I think Sandie dog has a future as a therapy dog...she has been making folks here in the rehab/skilled nursing facility happy all day.....even had a nice fellow become animated and tell us a great old doggie joke...will share later.

That was nice of him, but honestly, I liked him  as Puddy.

 

I didn't like Seinfeld. :ph34r: I have seen lots of it though and he was always awesome. The last episode was epic. "Alright." Bahahahaha!

Waffle iron hash browns is a brilliant idea....I think I'll throw some shredded sweet potato in my iron when I get home today.

Thanks Ruth :)

I threw a whole chicken with a bunch of fresh rosemary and a bit of broth in KFG before I left to check on mom this morning. I should be home to move it from frig to counter, but if not the guys can do it between school and work so we will all have an easy hot dinner.

Don't forget to tell those you love that you do...today.

Love you guys ;)

I've tried them with sweet potatoes and somehow they don't come out the same. But russet potatoes work well!

I shred up russet potatoes and toss them with olive oil and salt and them cook until brown and crispy in my waffle iron.

I posted this a couple of weeks ago.  Its different things to cook in a waffle iron.  I think they used tator tots for convience.

I know I saw one with tator tots but this is the basic idea of using your own potatoes

I think I might pick up a steak tonight.  I saw they have an Outback Steakhouse near me and it seems like they are very gluten friendly and have good procedures in place!  If not, I can pick one up at the grocery store and broil it---just not the same as grilled steak though.

I like your kitty Kat, K. (and you think I don't notice). Also like your quote--good one. ;)

 

Don't forget to tell those you love that you do...today.

 

 

I :wub:  you. I am thinking about you and your Mom and sending hugs.

 

 

 

Okee dokee, this evening is shaping up to be pizza night. (what? you say! but it is not Friday night!) I know. I know.

 

but my friend with the G F bakery sent me some nice fresh flour mix and it makes terrific pizza shells and rolls.

 

Baking later and well, if the dough  is right there, rising and all, I figure.....

I've been to Outback a few times over the last couple years and never had a problem. Of course, every location has the potential to be very different but hopefully you'll have a good experience. :)

 

I think tonight I'm going to finally get to that orange sauce I picked up last week at the Asian market. I'll make orange chicken tonight. Yay!!! There really is nothing quite like homemade, "breaded" nuggets of meat deep fried to perfection. We'll have some sort of rice and veggie with it of course. I think I still have half a bag of peas and carrots in the freezer and could make a nice fried rice for myself. mmmmmmm......

I prefer a gluten free friendly place myself.     :D   

 

Outback is a gluten free friendly place.  I think they were trained by GIG?  Not sure.  You could check the GIG site.  Part of what makes them safer is that the steaks, baked potatoes, green beans, etc don't normally have gluten in them for any diner.

Dad came to see mom so I ran home for real food and to take care of other details of life.

Wanted fresh food so ended up grating two yams...out of sweet potato :(

Then I squeezed the hell out of them in a tea towel...used butter in the iron then threw the grated yam and garlic salt on top...worked great!

Just sitting down to a yamwaffle cheeseburger...thanks ladies!

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
