#921021 The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Posted by Adalaide on 20 June 2014 - 06:39 PM

You have worked hard and I am so proud of you--and very happy for you too!!  :)


Credit where it's due, I had lots of encouragement from you! Probably self-serving encouragement since you were my first customer. :P I've had lots of help, mostly from my super awesome husband. He's been incredible. The best part of all this for me, honestly, is that I don't feel useless any more. I'm actually doing something productive that will eventually be profitable and make us some money. I wasn't raised to be okay with not working and earning my way. In my head, logically, I understood that I have limitations and a very serious disease. That never stopped it from grating on my nerves.

:wub: I got your hearts for you!


We're doing leftovers. I worked my butt off yesterday and today to finish up some pads. This evening I finalized a deal with a local store and my heating pads are in a retail store now! :D :D :D :D :D So, once the farmers market season is over and the cold weather kicks in, I'll still be making money. Yay!!


I have no leftover sides so I think I'm going to bake myself a sweet potato and let my husband have french fries. Or he may come home with crowns. There is a long standing feud in this house over crowns vs tots. He's obviously wrong, but won't admit it. <_< :lol:

When I do my own rub for a pork loin or tenderloin I usually do rosemary, fresh chopped garlic, salt (a lot) and fresh ground pepper. It gets a beautiful crispy crust in the rotisserie but I'm sure would also be delicious just roasted or in a crockpot.

#919920 Gluten Free Pretzels Always Make Me Sick

Posted by Adalaide on 11 June 2014 - 02:32 PM

I agree, try plain soy and see if it's a problem. Or try pretzels without soy flour. I only eat Snyder's which have soy lecithin but not soy flour. I enjoy them as much as, if not more than I did gluten pretzels, and my gluten eating husband agrees that they're every bit as good. I have to hide them from him. :ph34r:

what shape are these cookie cutters????


Giraffe! Just one, but that's all you need to make cookies with. There is only one appropriate shape to make cut out cookies into. At least in this house. :lol:

So happy for you that you're on your bike again! :D


I'm off to PT and stopping on the way home at the library and post office. I got a thing yesterday saying they had something for me to pick up but that 39 cent is due for postage. I've never heard of the company it's from and I'm quite confused. I definitely want to know what it is before I go giving them my money, even if it isn't any real amount. I'm confused that a company just mailed me something and expects me to pay for the postage. :huh:

A cousin found an old pic and I just wanted to share because I'm so amused. I'm the 5 year old in pigtails on my mom's lap hiding. My brother is totally the dorky one on the bench on the left. I can't believe someone is digging up pics this ancient. I'm sure my mom and her hair want to forget the early 80's! :lol:

My husband seems to like Old El Paso. I used to... until I discovered Nueva Cocina which is so very sadly out of business. (still makes me want to cry) Fortunately I have a huge stash of packets I found on clearance that will probably last me through the summer. :D I did try La Frontera twice, they're pretty decent. Probably what I'll go to when I run out. Most things have MSG in them which is a huge no-no for me, and why I originally gave up the Old El Paso. Even though I can tolerate a little now, I have no intentions of going back to what I consider second rate at this point, no matter the price. (My husband can kiss my butt too if he thinks I'll settle for something just because it costs less. I'd rather starve.)


I'm indulging tonight after a long but rewarding day. I finished weeding today before it got hot out. Just as I was finishing I noticed a small (maybe 1/2 inch) garden slug on the top of my bare foot that I hadn't noticed right away because of how the weeds were brushing my feet. I screamed like a little girl. I calmed my nerves with some Glutino cookies. B) I've been sewing off and on as much as I can handle then had to run out for some lavender. The owner of the herb shop I go to was in and said she'd be willing to sell my heating pads. :D :D :D More work, but it feels good to be useful again. Anyway, the rewarding part. Going to try again to make "hamburger helper" and see how it turns out. I keep getting it a little better every time. I had a very unhealthy addiction to cheeseburger macaroni and keep trying to get something reasonably decent. I know it'll be more cheese than I should eat, but I accidentally opened my bookmark to the recipe I started from and that just set off the craving. I used up all my responsible adult for the day working, cheese called and I'm answering.

#916302 Anyone Have A Bunny Rabbit?

Posted by Adalaide on 16 May 2014 - 07:04 PM

It isn't something to be taken lightly, just like getting a dog or cat. They can be complicated pets at times, and you need to be ready to handle them. They need room to exercise properly and a house, if they will be indoors needs to be appropriately bunny-proofed for when they are allowed out for free time. Your daughter would also have to accept that they frequently are not cuddle pets. They are insanely rewarding, beyond words, but one of those rewards will almost certainly not be cuddling with it. If she's old enough for a dog or cat, and you're ready for the vet bills and care associated with one then go for it. I recommend a lop, downy eared bunnies are the best. (Totally an unbiased opinion. :P)

#914878 A Little Bit Confused...

Posted by Adalaide on 03 May 2014 - 12:51 AM

Yes, it is genetic. Everyone who has it has the genes for it but not everyone who has the genes for it has celiac. Having the genes simply means you may get celiac. You could could have many relatives in your ancestry (or alive) who have the genes and never developed the disease. There is also no way to know how many in your ancestry may have died of celiac.


ETA: it is also possible to be something called a silent celiac. This means that you actively have celiac and the damage is being done to your body but you have no classic symptoms. Again, there would be no way to know if anyone in your family fit this either.

It is scientifically impossible for gluten to be in distilled anything. Enjoy!

You want my snow? Take it! Someone must have taken it because it cleared up beautifully and will be near 50 today. I think I'll get out in the late afternoon to pot my mint if I'm feeling up to it. I started my day with the kitchen half done already but the stove hood and oven racks staring at me when I walked in this morning. Ugh! At least it's just the racks though, the oven cleans itself. :D My husband got bumped to Wed off instead of tomorrow so I guess that is gonna be my move in day for my kitchen. I'm so excited.


Tonight we'll have leftover fajitas. They were so good! I haven't had them in... I don't even know how long. Maybe years. I've gotta have them more often.
