I think I have an addiction. We had a late lunch with burgers, and I smothered mine in fried shrooms, onions and peppers with some cheese so I didn't even think about supper til late. By the time I was hungry all I wanted was mac & cheese. This is the danger in buying a 5 pound brick of cheese at Costco. I wasn't super hungry so all I had was the mac & cheese. :ph34r:

Depends... what type of cheese?

Tillamook medium cheddar. My husband prefers a milder cheddar and I am all about the sharpest I can get my hands on so we compromise. I usually add a little something else, but was feeling too lazy to shred my mozz tonight. (Yes, even though I have the KitchenAid attachment.)

I love that brand. I prefer medium, but sharp is a bit much for me. Mild is okay.

Tillamook is sooooo good!! And buying it in huge bricks at Costco is still half the price of the cheap cheese at any other store. I know it is just cheese and some people would talk about how it shouldn't matter, the kind of thing parents saving money lie to kids about, but it really matters what brand you buy.

So it was confirmed as a peanut allergy and the doctor said it is a strong one.

 

We did suspect he had a peanut allergy because when he was about a yr and half, he had a minor reaction on a plane and we thought it might be the peanuts they served and that we ate them and then touched him or he touched the food trays.

 

Then about a year ago he was at a play date and the parents of his friend called and said he ate some Ritz crackers with peanut butter filling and that we should pick him up. He was fine that evening and I started to relax about it.

 

And then he has this strong reaction to a protein bar and the scratch test shows a definite positive to peanuts.

 

I don't get it and feel stupid. I can't believe we actually relaxed about peanuts given what we now know.

 

Scary stuff -- I had read and heard that each anaphylactic episode can be worse than the last -- very scary no matter our age, but must be terrifying for a little one.  My BP was thru the roof from the epi - it did go back to my normal BP within a few hours -- but the whole episode does knock the stuffing out of you.

 

Mindwarp is right -- we had practiced in our family too -- I had got a bit lax with carrying two pens -- no more -- I no longer switch between purse and backpacks...the two pens are in my bright orange backpack (or in my riding jersey if I'm on my bike) - everyone in my family knows where they are and my new MedAlert bracelet is simply going to say EPI PENS in pocket OR orange backpack -- just in case I cant talk and need to have a stranger's help. -- practice made our first emergency go much more smoothly -- sure hope there is never another!

I'm not gluten intolerant, but my wife is. I joined this blog because I do all the cooking at home and need to be educated so I don't hurt my family.
I'm always looking for recipe ideas and ways to cook and eat healthy. And while I'm not on a tight budget, I have been finding gluten free grocery shopping quite expensive, so all ideas are welcome!

Clever girl. Bribery works. ;) I'm bribing mine too, Right now, he's cleaning out the basement as I have just made his fav

Giant Oatmeal Granola Cookies.They are a powerhouse of goodness.  I should really post that recipe on here. I pilfered liberally from various recipes out there and changed a few things in it, so I figure it makes it mine. Sort of. 

 

Last night, we had Split Pea and Ham soup ( but I cannot take the credit for it. My friend Sherry Lynn made it at her gluten-free cafe and bakery and it was Deeeee-lishus! as my dear old Dad used to say.

 

Tonight, I'm thinking chicken surprise (cuz I'll be surprised if I work up the enthusiasm to cook it)

 

Back at the gym this week and resuming my efforts to get my muscles in better shape.

I had to refrain from being a tad irked when I hear these young thin chickies at the gym declare "oh, I went gluten-free during the last week to try it and I lost weight and I feel great!"  <_<  good for you.

 

Someday, I figure I'll say "I went gluten-free during the last decade and I feel great"

I found this hysterical. :lol: :lol: My husband may think I'm crazy because I'm always off in my corner laughing.

 

I managed today to roll myself out of bed, get dressed and ready and get dinner in a crock pot all before 1 so I can take off to the doctor. I even managed to apply a blow dryer to my head so I don't look like a mangy animal when I leave the house.

 

Dinner tonight will just be some carrots and onions and celery I threw in the crock pot with a pork roast. Apparently I found out my best friend got tickets to a concert for her birthday next week which is a surprise and she doesn't know  yet, but I'll have to work for her on Thursday. So I'll take a little of that roast and veggies and some of my mac & cheese and freeze them so I don't have to figure out a work lunch at the last minute. I hate figuring out work lunches, and hate taking salads when it isn't summer.

:angry: those little girls always piss me off -- but I :D and carry on -- here is a hint -- watch out for Lisa with a big-assed smile -- it means something devious is in the works! 

 

Normal :) -- that is generally me and "usually" sincere.

 

One of my kids had a "vegetarian" over last weekend -- I have nothing about vegies or folks that choose to eat only vegies -- but understand what you are trying to accomplish -- this little bitchy one bugs the $#!t out of me on a regular basis - so I make meat that smells mouthwatering on purpose and watch all the other teens at the table make "I'm in heaven sounds" while she eats the lovely colorful salad I always provide - oh ya --- I am evil :lol:

 

Someday, I figure I'll say "I went gluten-free during the last decade and I feel great"

 

Darn tootin' you will and it will not take a decade -- but sure does feel like it some days :wub:

Tonight I'm throwing a meatloaf in the oven just to be simple.

 

I went to the grocery store for the first time in over a year today and didn't have a panic attack!!! :)

 

Tonight I am going to try to go with my husband to take my daughter to dance, fingers crossed...it's a bit further and haven't been there in over 2 years.

 I've been known to get the quizzical look when I guffaw out loud. Karen's one-liners on emails, for example often prompt those.

By the time I explain it,  he's not interested anymore.  I think our humor on here is more of a "you had to be there" kinda thing.

:D

SkiLIsa and I share a common issue of histamine intolerance.

Strawberries are a main culprit as are tomatoes and they can "bug my insides" too.

Maybe that's all it is? Hope so! I know you enjoy your venison (poor Bambi. :(:lol:
