Thank you so much Irish!

 

I did it! Plus I will be doing it again tomorrow since both girls have dance and hubby won't be home. Then it will be home to cook all the food for my neighbor's first birthday party and encores from tonight for dinner.

ALEX!! This is me upon reading these words (it's crazy, but this emoticon looks exactly like me!!)

oh honey, I know how much this means to you and I am so very, very happy for you... whoohoo!!!! You can do this tonight!

Haven't been on in a while -- accidental glutening (evil creamed corn!) & return of horrible dh rash have had me feeling pretty like a bad parent. Hopefully we are on the rebound. Tonight was chicken parmesan with just a little dab of sauce. Crusted the chicken with Glutino garlic & parmesan bagel chip crumbs -- each box has a huge amount of crumbs in the bottom and they make a good 'crust'. It was delish!

Welcome Back to you and I think I forgot to welcome my Nascar Pal back!!!  Glad to see you both :)

 

LFitts -- don't be too hard on yourself -- I think we have all come up lacking a bit when gluten jumps in our path.  Dinner sounded yummy - glad you are feeling better.

 

Life got in the way of the upside down peach cake today -- so men will have left over choco-mint buttercream frosting on vanilla ice cream -- I'll get the cake in the oven tomorrow -- dessert 5 days straight should get things done around here :P

I simply cannot express how happy I am for you, hon!! I know what it means to take back your life and feel better..

Hooray for healing! Big hugs to you.   

 

It's Friday, so chances are pizza is in store for the hubs after his golf outing. I may have encores of last night's "chicken surprise" which 

turned out to be chicken satay with thai peanut sauce and rice noodles.( And Addy, that really surprised me as I had no idea until 5:30 pm what the Sam Hill I was doing with those breasts)  

 

In the early days of this recovery, there was no such thing as culinary spontaneity any more (and that killed me)  but I could not think straight enough (or stand up long enough)  to be so bold. Plus, I could only eat about 5 foods at the time. 

 

Man, it's so good to get so many things back. Even if it's not perfect, life is good.  :)  

Have a great weekend, peeps!

hmmm...I've lost my little cheeleader -- will go look for her and edit her it -- this is fantastic news Alex! 

 

Here she is -- and I realized when I went looking for her by searching this thread for "cheerleader" -- I originally borrowed her from Irish -- so technically this is Irish

Well, I guess it is fitting for that to be Irish. Probably playing with her bike streamers. It is good to see more people around here, liven the place up a bit on our down days. :D

 

I have no idea what I am cooking today, I am up earlier than normal because in my brilliance last night I forgot to take my flonase and I woke up stuffy, sore throat and coughing. Tis the season. <_<

So, I know I was just here, but I found this cause someone posted it on facebook. I was thinking this looked good for supper. I may have paraphrased some of the directions, and I also clearly remember that a "box" of macaroni comes in either 8 or 16 ounces and have figured out that works out to 2 or 4 cups of my pasta uncooked. Not sure what size box they want but I can work with this and see what happens. Worst case scenario I have to cook more and waste 15 minutes. I'm having a hard time though convincing my husband that since the recipe said Beef Macaroni, it is clearly not a casserole. Otherwise it would have been called Beef Macaroni Casserole of course.

 

1 box elbow macaroni
1 big can pureed tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
1 small can tomato paste
4 cups low fat cheese (2 cheddar/2 mozz, but w/e)
1 pound meat
spices to taste

Brown meat
Boil pasta
Heat sauces and paste with spices
Mix everything but cheese
Mix half cheese, stir well

put in large pan
sprinkle rest of cheese
bake 375 for 30-40

I've got soup for you both -- it was great and I ate it WITH rice pasta in it -- usually I pull mine outta the pot before I add the pasta group -- and usually I use corn based pasta for soups as it holds up better -- but gotta say it was really great having a serving with pasta -- and had no reactions what so ever -- now just have to take my own advice and not overdo the rice -- man that is tough.

 

Anyway - dropped some off for Mom this morning and will be dropping some off for Dad around noon PST -- head on over for a bowl ;)

hope you all feel better soon!!!  i am making ham & potato soup for sunday's youth luncheon at church, so i will save you some out :)

 

i have no idea what's for dinner - i am in Jersey Girl Heaven stuffing my face with a taylor ham, egg & cheese (WITH S,P,K!!)  - it's on scharr bread, (authentically, it should be on a hard roll) and sliced myself up some orange slices.  going out to shoot pool tonight, so dinner will probably be redbridge hahaha - and i know what everybody thinks of redbridge but here's my favorite part of redbridge beer:  I CAN *GET* IT!  :D  my actual favorite tastiest beer of all time i will never get to drink again:  'knoxville blonde'  brewed in (guess where) a microbrewery.......

 

oh, and i forgot to say:  last week i actually went to:

1.  the mall

2.  out to eat 

3. a. a show

    b. at a bar

 

all on the same night and i didn't feel like i was hit by a bus the next day.  this just keeps getting better and better.  six months ago i would have been not only exhausted and maybe skip the rest of the evening, but probably laid up in the bed the next day.  (except for strawberries.  i am sworn off them!  i have to notice if the smuckers seedless strawberry jam gives me trouble...)

 

anyhoo:  W00T!  :)

Hmm, sounds just like my Mom's "goulash" recipe. Plain, no cheese though...

I've questioned things similar to this with my kids. One of them doesn't like mint at all, no kind of mint, not mint teas, not mint chocolate brownies, nothing minty. I asked her if she was maybe switched at birth. :lol: The response of course was "mooooooooooooom!!!!" The other one who found out she is lactose intolerant thought she would die until she discovered cheese doesn't make her lay in bed feeling like she is actually dying. We're a family of cheese-aholics.
