I have no idea what all this robotics is, but I think my son would love it.

Good luck to all of you with kids involved :)

Good Morning Dinner Peeps!

 

Yes, I am back and feeling great this morning -- this week really was tough -- still have no idea what caused the anaphylactic crisis -- part of me suspects a combo of environmental and food -- was the freshly baked chicken to blame? tossed the left overs just in case.  Was the extremely high pollen count last Sunday or the heat in my kitchen while baking to blame?  maybe.  The 20 minutes I spent in the direct sun without hat while planting some herbs?  Or perhaps the mass number of gluten eaters attending son's "house show" the day before contaminated our home a bit?  don't know -- fed the masses fresh popcorn and other gluten-free treats, but one never knows...house has been scrubbed from top to bottom including all door knobs - just in case.

 

Feel like celebrating today -- so something sinful for desert for my men -- youngest comes home today from visiting my oldest and her kids for the past four days -- miss him a lot and will be glad to see his smiling face :D

Glad to see you are feeling better. :) One of the worst things in the world for me is not knowing something, so I'd be pretty close to criminally insane by now if I were in your place.

 

Got some beautiful lettuce this morning. I popped a chicken breast in some balsamic vinaigrette to do something like get delicious. I'll throw that on my indoor grill and make some apple walnut salads for dinner. I have one fuji left from last week that will be perfect for salads.

 

I'm also going to throw together an apple crisp with my green apples and something resembling macintosh maybe. Not sure really, but they're little and red and I'm sure they'll be fine with the tarts. Since that isn't enough to fit my Grammy's rule of 3 types of apples I'll probably throw in a pear for good measure. There are some rules of life you don't break, and Grammy's rules (especially baking rules) are on the top of that list.

I don't know what is wrong tonight. I'm not contaminated or anything, but I am having the worst stomach pains. I had a little earlier, but it went away and I thought nothing more of it. Then tonight when I dragged my husband out for shopping it came back. With a vengeance no less.

 

So, the apple crisp is on hold until tomorrow. Hoping this passes by morning and my stomach gets a hold of itself and knocks this crap off. I can handle all the intestinal nonsense in the world, but stomach pain? I'm such a baby. :ph34r:

 

ETA: For the record, I'll just use the recipe out of my Betty Crocker cook book and use a different flour. I am fine with oats and I wouldn't call it an apple crisp without them.

Hubs cooked dinner last night. He made a mushroom gravy with shallots to smother the swedish meatballs and we were both at a loss as to the sweetness of the gravy.  I accused him of using powdered sugar by mistake to thicken it but he claimed not.  I had recently introduced him to the cannned condensed milk I keep in the pantry for run-out-of-milk emergencies (along with the boxes which had all been used up :rolleyes: ) and was unaware he had used that since we had milk in the fridge.  However today, I opened the refrigerator and there was an opened can of SWEETENED condensed milk :lol: -- sweet gravy explained!!  It was not overly sweet wine or overly ripe shallots or any of a hundred other explanations proffered :P :lol:  It was an interesting touch to a savoury meal.

And you always know for sure who your best friend is. :)

Nothing says love like someone holding your hair back while you hurl.

 

Dinner tonight:

 

Corned beef and cabbage, potatoes, carrots and turnips

 

(it's not just for St. Paddy's in our house) and while it simmers, we'll continue our house cleaning.

 

Got through the 5 weeks of mail. they held for us. Very interesting the volume of trash we get.

 

85% catalogs,fliers and coupons--went right into the recycle bin.

10% statements or receipts (which I already get on email and told them to stop wasting paper)

One thank you note (yer velcome!)

One invitation to a bridal shower (Missed it and what a shame--not--I loathe those things)

One new baby pic (awww adorable! My Godchild has a kid now. Crap, I'm old)

One envelope with funnies and an article on a celiac  vaccine they are working on from my Mom (she's old school--no computer and we saw that article 3 weeks ago)

and one "save the date" for a wedding in DEC.(really, who plans that far ahead?) 

We just eloped.

 

Mail isn't fun anymore. The last fun thing I got in the mail were my pink bike streamers from SKI. :wub:

Well, just got back from a shopping trip. Managed to get to a bathroom for 1st round of D, in the car for 1st V. Very focused yoga breathing for 40 min journey home ( last time I had to do that was in a small airplane on a windy day, over the grand canyon. Mr Mindwarp was not so lucky that time). Finished the job at home. Rest now, narrowing possible culprits later :( :)

Poor babe! Nothing like trying to keep things in check while in public. Sorry. Get some rest.

If it makes you feel any better to have a buddy in distress, I have not felt well for 4 days.

Many potty trips and on Thursday, I had to find one QUICKLY in a grocery store. That hasn't happened to me in a year.

Not a glutening, no way. no how. Methinks I overdid the "fun foods" and the wine.

Or I've got some type of gastroenteritis.

meh, we could speculate endlessly, I guess.

I've doubled the probiotics and I am back on the short food list.

 

What the heck is going on with all the dinner chat peeps? :blink:

I'm not going to spend all my time speculating on what happened to my stomach. I will simply curse it until it knocks off this stupid crap. I feel "better" this morning, but that is simply relative. I think I feel better enough to be making apple crisp though. Those apples aren't going to use themselves up.

 

Everybody needs to feel better.

 

Dinner tonight will be easy. My husband was dying for some kielbasa I can't have cause of the MSG, I told him just to get it and I would make it for him. I will have mac & cheese and a burger and asparagus. Hah! I win.

 

Oh, and on the old front, my daughter will be graduating from high school in a month. A month! How did 18 years just happen that fast? I'm pretty sure they took a hell of a lot longer when I was in school. One more to kid to keep on the college path for a year and then they're both all grown up.

Left over mac and cheese with asparagus...

 

I omitted the butter last night, reduced the amount of milk, a touch of corn starch, and kept the amount of cheese the same. It came out cheesier than before. That's a keeper.

Our youngest turns 18 this month and graduates HS in june and - NO - it can't possibly be true - me thinks our calenndar is broke ;)

Hoping my sister makes it to Sunday dinner so we are having nothiing green - well I am as id starve without that color of food.

Pork Chops and baked apples or maybe dessert should be something like apple crisp - great idea. Macaroni and Cheese - oh and for that yooungest kid - he gets his own mini honey baked ham as he was traveling when we had Easter 2.0 last week.

 

Edited to add:

 

Apple Crisp in the oven which got me two rather nice hugs from my sons -- thanks Addie :) -- also happens to sneak something green into Sissy ;)

 

Also think we'll switch to scalloped potato as that never got made last Sunday.
