Congratulations Dave!!! But you still need to behave B)

I just finished unpacking :D ....I'm settled. I just need to go get my books tomorrow and then I'm officially ready for anything. I went out last night with various people (not getting into trouble of course), but I decided that tonight I need to get my internet working, get my class list, and finish unpacking. I succeeded in everything except getting my class list....I was THREE minutes too late!!!!!

Hi Meredith!

How's it going down under?

Hi :D All is well in OZ

Hi Mango!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Any news on those almond meal muffins??? Hope you are doing fabulous

Hello hello :):) Well, about the muffins, I just moved into a house that happens to be about a block away from the place that sells them :o:D I swear I did not plan this on purpose :ph34r:, but I'm not complaining either. I'll keep you all updated on the muffin news as I continue recipe investigations :P

So...I started this new job that I really like, but I find it funny (yes I'm easily amused) that they often send me out to buy massive quantities of milk and biscuits. The first time I had to buy the milk I was a bit scared I was going to get the wrong thing b/c I've never really purchased milk before. :unsure: It was a totally foreign thing to me LOL Today I had to buy nine packages of chocolate biscuits. I don't know what my job title is (purchaser of the office gluten and casein?) I'm working for an accounting firm. I don't know what they do with all this stuff :huh: but I get paid well so I don't really question anything. The happy thing about the biscuit mission is I discovered an organic gluten-free cafe on my way to the store :). How ironic. Ooh I gotta run (they're probably about to send me to buy bread or something). Catch ya all later

I hope it didn't mess up your schedule too much. :( I always hated having to rearrange everything.

Glad to hear that everything is going well and that you got a new job! That's great that you got a house. Should be much easier for you as far as cc issues. We will continue to await your muffin investigation. :D

Just make the moat with gluten instead of water! :lol:

Not at all ;)

;) No problem at all...I didn't realize it had it on the site....

Thanks for asking.... I passed the test. :D

I actually am not sure if it is on the website. I think I just didn't know where to begin to explain it. Oh, congrats also!

Incredible Edible Gluten-free Food for Kids Banana Bread by Sheri L. Sanderson

Ingredients:

1/2 cup brown rice flour

1/2 cup rice flour

1/2 cup tapioca starch

1/4 cup potato starch

2/3 cup sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp xanthan gum

1/4 tsp salt

1/3 cup shortening

2 tbsp milk

2 eggs

1 c mashed bananas (2-3 med.)

1/3 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Method:

In a large bowl. combine brown rice flour, rice flour, tapioca flour, potato starch flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture is crumbly.

In another bowl, combine the milk and eggs, beating slightly.

Add half of the milk mixture. With an electric mixer, beat to combine. Add half the mashed banana and beat to combine. Repeat with remaining milk mixture and banana, beating between additions.

Beat the batter on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add nuts, if desired, and combine.

Pour into a greased loaf pan or three greased mini-loaf pans. Bake at 375 for 55-6- min. for a large loaf or 40-50 min. for mini-loaves or until toothpick inserted near the center of the loaf comes out clean.

Cool for 10 min. on wire rack. Remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack before slicing.

Slice and store in an air-tight container or zip style bag in the refrigerator for a week to ten days.

~Linda's notes: I usually put in at least 1/2 of a personal size plain, unflavoured yogurt for protein and moistness. If I don't have yogurt I'll put in plain, unsweetened applesauce. I've never made a bad batch of these, and I bake this recipe every 3-4 weeks.

~I use small loaf pans. Four small loaves attached together in one pan. Each loaf is about 3"wide x 6"long x 2"deep. (I bake for 45 min.)

Good girl Morgan! The social scene has a way of sucking you in, it's great that you have your priorities set. If you balance the two you will do fine. I had a hard time myself doing that :ph34r:

How fabulous you live near the bakery of the oh so yummy almond meal muffins, now that is good thinking :lol: Hopefully you can get a recipe out of it for us.

I'm so glad you like your new job, sounds like an improvement from the last one :lol: They must like their milk and biscuits.

Let us know if and when you try out that gluten-free cafe.

That they did :lol:

Sorry you aren't feeling well Carla, hope you get better soon :) Do you think it was the bite of the ice cream bar?

Hi Susan W, good to see you :)

Hi Tavi, how are you doing? We had quite a few tumbleweeds blow through the ville the last couple days, really quiet around here, so you will be busy :lol: how is that "to do" list coming along? Cross anything off yet?

Thanks for the recipe Linda, looks interesting.

Good morning Andrea :):)

AMEN!!!

I found that everything BUT classes were useful. Then again, I worked very hard at my job in college, which got me the job I'm in now!

There's no way to tell. It was bad before. It started a couple months ago ... I got off casein and it got worse. I've been tired and foggy ever since. Then it started to get a little better, and I got sick, Morgan got it, too, so I know it was a bug. Then I was still feeling bad in NC at my grandmothers and came home and still felt bad. I attributed it to probable glutening there (Chloe and Morgan both got d while we were there). So, I don't know if the ice cream bar will add to it or not. I don't really know if it's glutening, or something else. I've felt really bad to the point that I can't do much for quite some time now. Either one thing is running into the next, or I'm going through major detoxing. I'm eating very clean now and never away from home, so hopefully it will clear up soon, or I'll have to start figuring out what's happening.

AMEN!!!

Hmmm, my job is being a wife and mom, and considering I came out of college with a husband, I guess my "job" there got me my "job" now!! :lol:

Yeah, I basically came out of college with an $80,000 MRS degree <_<

And I'm good at planning stuff. And my degree (Poli Sci) made me cynical and able to BS anything. Yup, that was worthwhile :rolleyes:

Well, if I hadn't gone to that college, I wouldn't have met my husband, so I guess it was worth it :)

It was apparently also worthwhile for DH, since I ask him if it was every month when he writes that student loan check :P

Thanks for the recipe Linda, looks interesting.

Interesting? <_< That's what people used to say about my dog instead of coming right out and saying they thought he was ugly. Of course he was beautiful. DingoGirl might have appreciated him - he was 1/2 blue heeler.

Sorry Julie. I guess I was expecting something like "I hate bananas" or "looks yummy". I have a problem with "interesting". I don't mean to be a smarta$$. (But it's better than being a dumba$$ :P )

Carla, I hope you're better before the Commodores tonight.

I guess you and Chelsea both got your MRS degree in college. :P

It's so frustrating trying to figure out what is making us still so sick. I am just recently off casein, over a month now. I'm not feeling any ill effects yet, but I did hear detoxing from dairy can be rough. Some of these flus and viruses going around can also be pretty potent and linger, so it could be that also. Take good care of yourself and hope it turns around for you very soon :)

Hi Chelse, how is gluten-free life going for you?

Hi Chelse, how is gluten-free life going for you?

Hi Julie :)

So far, not so good. I feel like hammered sh--! Wednesday night my stomach started to hurt a little (my "aura" for knowing the pyloric spams were coming) so I took a phenergan and hoped for the best. I spent all but 4 hours asleep yesterday, because I had to take 3 more doses of phenergan to get it to stop. I don't know that it's ever been that bad, I was ridiculously weak. Today I started out ok and then about an hour after I got to work my stomach started hurting again and I'm REALLY nauseous. And sleepy. Making it very difficult to actually work. I'm hoping to get stuff done so I can go home and go to bed :(

I wish I knew what caused the spasms, nobody has been able to figure it out. The anti-spasmodics don't even TOUCH them. So frustrating. I just have to live with having these flares I guess.

Hi Julie,

I'm in and out of here, just keeping up. I've been working on updateing the checkbook :ph34r: . I've got to order some more things for Talitha for school (and fun stuff for Micah) and still make the phonics group cards. I have flash cards but these are different. My handwriting is not good, to say the least. I might have to figure out how I can do it on the computer. Still got projects to do and school is in a week and a half. Mitch has fantastic handwriting so if I can't do the cards on the computer I'll have him do them. Why do I suspect my handwriting might get a little better going through school again? :P:lol:

Seth already erased this once for me and he's starting to fuss. The little boy was up last night for 2+ hours. He woke up around 11:30 and didn't go back to sleep til around 1:45 or so. I was not a happy camper and now he won't be today. He's saying mum....he wants his mommy. I'm off.

Sounds like a lot of folks are going through a rough spell right now. Karen had a post about joint pain too... I hope you all get some answers soon & find your way out of the pain. I really feel for you...

Well, I got an MRS degree, but I also got a BS in Business from IU ... I do balance our checkbook ... :) I also have a couple rental properties that we own and I do the work for ... if I ever feel better I'm going to buy a couple more and also do fixer uppers ... so my business degree will finally go to work! There's a house down the street from us I'd like to buy, but I don't have the energy to go look at it. It would be a buy-fix up- resell house. It's a one-story cape-cod, so could easily be converted to a 3 brm-2ba instead of 2 brm-1ba. I'd have to do the math, get estimates, etc., which I just can't do right now ....

Oh Chelse, I'm so sorry. I imagine your intestinal tract took a severe beating with all of the gluten for so long, so things have to be pretty stirred up. I don't really know much about the spasms (sounds a little bit like Rachel's alien baby), I would think it was from an irritant of some kind? It has to be very frustrating for you. Hopefully as you continue with the gluten-free diet you will heal and see some improvement. Hang in there!

Hi Leah, how are you doing?

Interesting is a word I use when something "interests" me.
