Your meal sounds just a touch healthier than mine. But thankfully tomorrow is a new day filled with greens and vinaigrettes! :P Don't you just love mandolines? Mine gets good workouts, too.


Yep - my regular slice mandoline works great for the dehydrated pears I love to snack on.

IH - I can't do doubles on cell, but wanted to tell you the "helper" at my local cookware shop showed me a special glove that one can use to prevent accidents - tho hubs slicing is a better solution.

But, I like weird traditions--don't you? :D

Still snowing like mad, but yes, this week it stayed on. Good thing; the generator is broken.

And Encore Fred ........well, he .was even better than last night.

(hope that is not taken out of context.............that could sound a tad risque.)


Yes, yes it could. This is what happens when you put a bunch of us girls together! :lol:

And yes, weird traditions are by far the best. If they make other people look at you kind of funny and question your sanity, you are definitely doing it right!

The Hubs is in charge of certain jobs around here: car repairs, plumbing, electrical work, running the rototiller, running the weed whacker and edge trimmer, running the electrical hedge shears, digging big holes, handling very sharp objects,using the mandoline, running the vacuum, and grocery shopping. Whenever I have tried to do any of those, I have hurt myself. Therefore, these jobs have been taken away from me. :unsure:

The first year we were married, I convinced the hubs that it was an old Armenian tradition to open one gift on Christmas Eve EVE. He did not buy it at first. So, I called my Dad and asked him to explain it to him. My Dad played along and gave this elaborate explanation making up a fake saint and the story of the bestowing of gifts to the poor villagers, blah blah blah ........and thus, the CEE tradition was passed down. Whether he actually fell for it or not is moot. We do it anyway. He finds it is best to just go along.

Dinner tonight:

I have to rethink our traditional "Friday is pizza night" plan. I had too much Fred the past two days
and too much potato gratin and frankly, I'm kind of "cheesed out." After losing dairy/cheese for a year and happily getting it back again, I never thought I hear myself say those words. But, there it is.

We have friends for dinner, roast chicken and veg. Seen off the last of the turkey encores today. My Mum loves turkey soup so we helped her freezer...

Contemplating whole30 next week. I am seeing a dietitian soon, bet they''ll hate it. I need to lose plenty, am feeling quite a lot better and think some elimination tests would be good. I need to try dairy free properly, hence I am trying to fit 30 days worth of cheese in by Monday. I love stilton and believe it is a reasonable ingredient for any meal.

- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!
- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol
- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

oh boy, a cheese splurge! enjoy!
Stilton is delicious and I could see you putting it in just about anything, except maybe a smoothie. :unsure:
I'm back on the Whole 30 come Jan. 1. It's a bit radical, but it helps to "reset" and determine what foods may be giving you grief.
If you want, we can "buddy up" via PMs and if one of us cracks, well, we can be supportive---or say screw it, eat a bunch of cheese and crackers and drink wine and be miserable failures together. :DSound like a plan?

January has 31 days, so the 2 nd might be correct?

I will be posting about cheese laden dinners every day in January ( whether we are eating them or not!). Posted Image

Do you just boil strips of zucchini like a pasta noodle? My SIL might like this. Maybe she should offer that in her " healthy" restaurant . She is diabetic and has to watch the carbs. She makes pizza with a cauliflower/ cheese crust.

She liked it and her teen son liked it. It isn't low cal because its still full of cheese in her recipe. I'm looking thru my recipes for a moz stick one I have misplaced. If I see that, I'll post it so you can see if its the same.

I would like that. I sometimes add some frozen zuc to stuff for me. I can "hide" it in a few recipes. In the crockpot, if you cut it small, it cooks to mush.
