Another avid bookaholic!  I cannot be without books surrounding me.  My eReader is awesome, too, but I still prefer the feel and smell of paper books.  Anyway, each year I probably read about 300 books.  Panic hits if there is not a book in the vehicle or my purse.  I too love classics such as Crime and Punishment.  My favourite authors are Daphne Du Maurier, Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins.  Absolutely brilliant.  And all British.  I adore the descriptions of the lovely English countryside, castles, period clothing, food...

 

Speaking of food...as it is chilly today (I LOVE it!) tonight we are having:

 

Chicken and Dumplings

Roasted Mushrooms with Sherry and Thyme

Peaches and Cream Layer Cake with Pastry Cream Filling and Buttercream

My favorite author by far is Mercedes Lackey, not classics, but certainly worn books in my house! There is nothing like tales of magic and adventure to get me so wrapped up I forget the world around me.

 

I was just thinking about mushrooms last night. I think they are one of the next things on my list to test out and see how I do with them. Life just isn't right without them.

 

Oh, and by the way... for all I am obsessed with baking, and eating everything I bake, I'm another 8 pounds lighter than I was last time I saw the doctor. Guess those cupcakes, cookies, cakes, muffins and cobblers aren't hurting me one bit. :D

"A room without books is like a body without a soul. "

 

I refuse to give up my book for a Nook. I am a dinosaur. I like holding it, smelling it and turning the pages. :)

I have so many books, I have started donating them and giving them away (gasp!) because they will cost me a fortune to ship to Florida. I can't believe I am letting some of them go..... ah well, they are going to "good homes". LOL Next, we are going through the 1000+ CDs..those are going to a rehab hospital where they need music for recovering patients. 

 

I see you are making the Bronski's peaches and cream cake...please let me know how it tastes. I love their recipes.

Their pie crust saved Thanksgiving for me. Tastes like my Gramma's.

 

Friday dinner:  4 cheese pizza. and antipasta

 

Saturday dinner--having friends over:

Shrimp cocktail

Garlic crostitinii 3 ways: herbed hummus, tapenade and roasted red peppers in balsamic and goat cheese

Pork tenderloin and some savory sauce of some nature. (I'll think about it when I take my walk in a minute)

Potatoes gratin with rosemary

Ratatouille 

Carrot cake with coconut and pineapple and cream cheese buttercream frosting (my teeth hurt just thinking about it)

 

Sunday dinner--having Aunt Ann over (the one who loves manhattans and will eat anything I put in front of her--LOVE this woman!)

She has requested  our 

Burgers on the grille  with bacon and blue cheese

Baked beans

Cole slaw

 

and she will enjoy some of that carrot cake, too.

 

Was going to make SKI's lemonies, but I have decided to save those for next time.

Books - need.

 

Addie's lighter scale read - yay.

 

Mushrooms are poking up everywhere - wonder why.

 

Vegies are not necessary every meal - fresh is always better.

 

Grumpy, but house much cleaner than when the day began - tired - thankful.

 

My baby graduates tomorrow - celebrate.

Congrats on that baby graduating GottaSki, Reason for no veggies is because I was cleaning the house also!! My daughter is coming to town with my grandson who is 3 months old. I have only seen him 3 times!! I am so excited!!! They are vegetarian, they feed them selves!! Gotta love the ones who bring their own food and cook their own meals!! I'll do the dishes for that!! :)

I think that's called something different than brain fog! :lol: Sounds like a delightful evening.

 

That peach cake does look positively amazing... but my husband doesn't like peaches so I'd have to eat the whole thing myself. I think I'll stick to peach cupcakes or muffins which I can freeze. Now the churros on the website, my husband would totally help eat those. (As if I need one more thing to deep fry!)

- 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.

WOOOO!!!! For sure a reason to celebrate!

 

I just threw a tri-tip in the oven tonight and some baked taters. I'd love to be able to do more than the lightest of housework 5 minutes at a time and hobble around the kitchen. Whatever is up I don't imagine can keep up much longer though. I'm at least getting out at twilight every night to the garden to water and enjoy some fresh air and the last bit of daylight. It is my favorite time of day. ^_^

I'm having gluten-free beer tonight.  Liquid dinner.  I bought two different kinds.  Redbridge & New Planet Raspberry Ale.  This is my first time ever trying or even hearing of the NP Ale.  From what I just read online it's not bad however it apparently doesn't taste much like beer.  I guess it has more of a fruity flavor.
