It's been a LONG time since we've had country fried steak. We dipped it in buttermilk then used Better batter to flour it and fried in coconut oil. We used to milk and corn starch and a little of the oil we fried the meat in to make gravy. It was SO GOOD! We also had green beans and mashed potatoes. :D


My mouth is watering no my thighs are getting bigger just reading this!

I've been completely out of stamina lately. Even knowing how much more important this week was, being Easter weekend, people being away for vacation, and how short on volunteers they would be, there was no way I could rally through the pain and fatigue this morning. The bright side is, when I went and picked up my stuff there were three beautiful zucchinis in there.

To keep dinner simple and leftover free I made sausage, scrambled eggs and zucchini cakes.

I have a million things to do and the stamina of a dead slug. On the bright side, I have my lemon curd in the fridge. Now I just need an angel food cake to go with it.

You don't need to make angel cake for me! Lemon curd is just fine!


Had chicken tacos tonight! Yum!

Tomorrow night - hub is grilling steaks and chicken, crockpot Au gratin potatoes, salad, carrot sticks ( for the no salad kids and my mom), coconut tres leches cake and a gluteny dessert my sis is making for those who don't like coconut.

Spell check wanted to change leches to leeches. Only my fish want 3 leeches cake!

Hey Guys...been consisting on "astronaut food" for a few days -- oh that is baby food in squeeze packettes I've used as safe food for awhile -- was happy to see them at the SD Celiac fair recently and they are making grown up versions -- sorry tired and rambled.  tonight hubby and son made tons of tri tip and other stuff for everyone left over for house show...i'd been living in the hospital cuz it is a very scary place for Mom....oh...and being there and knowing history wins every time...made some friends, some not so much -- but kept spouting history, symptoms, etc and guess what...one of the docs I thought was another PITA turned out to be chief of staff - I had no idea until i stumbled outta the cafeteria this morning with some caffeine and paused to look at the pics of staff -- you never know when you'll meet someone that really can make a dif....wondered why we finally were being listened to - now I know.

When you get things straightened out there, you get right on making yourself an angel food cake. You deserve it! I do hope you are doing okay, holidays are no time to be spending in a hospital. I use the King Arthur recipe, but with the pastry flour blend from the December Living Without for the Christmas cookies. I use Alton Brown's recipe for lemon curd.

Happy Easter Everyone!!!

 

Mom is settled in a very nice skilled nursing facility in downtown La Jolla -- to start recovering from her incorrect dx and prescribed meds given over the past 9 months.  Long road ahead but I am extremely hopeful this little dynamo will be back walking her 3-4 miles a day in the coming months :)

 

I'm not posting anywhere else in the forum today as the kids and their friends have left our cupboards and fridge absolutely bare while I was hanging in the hospital with Mom...off to several grocery stores and to shuffle yummy treats in and out of the oven the rest of the day.

You've had a LONG week, Lisa. Glad Mom is settled and you can breathe. You "did good", hon!xx

 

Happy Easter, Everyone!

 

Traveling home--a few days to go, but I thought I'd check in and tell you that dining out safely is absolutely possible while traveling.

Kudos to the folks who "invented" Find Me Gluten Free and I will be adding my thoughts on that website when I have a few minutes.

 

Except for one brief episode early on (and that was entirely my own fault for tasting something before double checking--duh!)

I have been able to enjoy all kinds of foods without a "hit". (and good news, a hit does not last as long as they used to--whoohoo!)

Once I know the chef and staff are savvy enough, I relax and enjoy.

 

I have had the following during the last week:

 

Porterhouse steak, asparagus with hollandaise, German fried potatoes, Gran Marnier  creme brulee (still like my CB unadorned)

 

Pork chops with an interesting mix of red beans/rice, jalapeno, black eyed peas, brussel sprouts, and strawberry cupcakes with white icing(and it was vegan, too)

 

A veggie burrito (my first in 2 years!) which had just about everything in it (avocado, sprouts, even sweet potato, black beans, a bit of cheese) and mixed fruit.

 

For Easter dinner, we are going to Matanzas Innlet here in St. Augustine (a shout out of thanks to Wendy, who writes  the "Palm Trees and Gluten Free" blog for emailing me via the Gluten Dude's site and for writing about this place.She's a doll!)

Dining right on the ocean for our last night (for now)  in this sunny paradise.

 

Heading for home tomorrow. Warm hugs to all and "see you" in a few days.xx

I've been out of town (and miss my precious Bingley to distraction!).  But in preparation I did make a wondrous batch of Bolognese sauce that is utterly fantastic.  There are many parts to it but it does include reduced white wine, aromatics, milk, blah blah blah.  That on (purchased! shame on me) buckwheat pasta and KFC copycat coleslaw on the side rounds it out.  Too bad I was not home to make a fabulous Easter dinner!  Oh, well.

Sorry you are not feeling so good :( Hope you get some rest.

Yesterday we had the most amazing pork roast. It is a long time since I had excellent crackling. Crunch and melt mmmm.

Today was chicken and veg stir fry with some fine vermiccelli (sp??) rice noodles. Nice to add a bit of variety to my rice based dishes.

Enjoyed an Easter egg hunt with the kids. There were a few little flurries of snow.

Clocks changed here, so off to bed, who knows what it will do to kids sleep patterns...

Travel safely!

 

Nothing wrong with a non-traditional Easter dinner, I'm sure that it was absolutely fabulous. I'm also sure that your new little man is missing you as much as you are missing him.

 

Today we tackled the task together of attacking our Easter George to get him into jars and canned for future use. We have 14 pint jars and I have a pot of bone broth stewing on the stove that I'll probably transfer to a crock pot later and tackle tomorrow or the next day.

 

We also have a batch of creme brulee ice creme chilling. I had a ton of leftover yolks from the angel food cake and woe is us, burdened now with this ice cream to make. :lol: I may have licked the spatula a little and all I have to say is zomg.

 

I saved out just enough ham to cover tonight's dinner. I'm sure eventually I'll be up to the task of heating that up, making a little gravy to go with it and mashing up a tater for myself. I'm in far too much pain to be hungry, so although I had planned on either some buffalo cauliflower or asparagus and hollandaise I am just going to call ham and taters and gravy my dinner.

Good Morning Dinner Pals...."Bubble Girl" checking in.

 

So...for the past 16 months I have been wondering if I'd ever have to put the stinking epi-pens we carry everywhere since my first anaphylactic reaction to sunflower seeds back in November 2011 to use - hoped I never would, but better safe than sorry.

 

On Easter afternoon I was feeling great - happily cooking and baking up a storm for the family -- when out of no where my abdomen swelled up - huh - wtf I think to myself - had only had fresh vegies and freshly baked chicken thus far that day -- then my breathing started getting bad --- double huh -- hubby dismissed as just another strange reaction as I took my first benedryl -- within 10 mins my throat swelled up and it was official -- the second anaphylactic episode is FAR worse than the first - I gasped epi pen - hubby ran and got it and stabbed me - it was our first time so I wasn't even sure he did it right -- but there was a spot of blood on my white pants so he knew he got me -- throat opened up pretty quickly - so I added second benedryl -- five mins later throat started swelling again so off we went to emergency -- hubby drove very, very fast and stuck me a second time in route.  A couple very long hours later I'd had a total of three doses of epi, four benedryl - two pills plus a couple shots thru the IV - three breathing treatments, a couple bags of fluid and an EKG to make sure the epi wasn't giving me a heart attack - fun times ;)

 

I was not going to post, but thought it important to remind folks -- if they are having "allergic" type reactions - even small ones, but are testing negative to food allergies - talk to their doc about getting an epi-pen -- had we not done this back when I had my first bad allergic reaction to an "intolerance" -- well - let's just say I am very thankful we had them and everyone in the family knows where they are and how to use them.

 

The scariest part was not anything above -- the scariest part is we still have no idea what triggered it.  Allergist is going to run yet another set of blood and patch tests -- hopefully we'll find something this round.

 

When in doubt - carry epi-pens!

Lisa
So glad you are ok, sounds like it all got a bit hairy there. I hope you can track down your trigger.

We are an epipen carrying household too, my son has an anaphylactic reaction to almond. So far we haven't had to use it, but it goes everywhere, no exceptions.

I had a puffy lips and hives on face reaction to parmesan last week, maybe I need to join the club too.

When my son had his 1st reaction we were told any subsequent reactions were likely to be more severe. We have to be alert to use his asthma medication if he has an anaphylactic reaction.

I know you can feel wiped out after, so take it easy

Love Mw x

Thank you Mw :)

 

Since you have eliminated so many foods you may become more sensitive when you add them back -- this is what happened to me -- glad you already have epi pens should reactions worsen -- I hope they don't - but it is good to be prepared!

 

Off to take an exam that I'm not as prepared for as I'd like -- mind a bit fuzzy since Easter -- but is better today -- hoping for the best :)
