The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'll try to, but I'm not good at behaving myself. Long history of not doing so.

P.S. We had pizza tonight.

I think Kathryn Hepburn said "If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun."

But I'm bad at quotes.

And I think the only reason I thought of that is that it's on the box of the gluten-free pizza I like.

Yes! and on the opposite side of the box is one of my favorite all-time quotes :) :

"When the gods want to punish us, they answer our prayers."--Oscar Wilde

and I always add: I prayed for patience. I got Celiac.

I prayed for patience. Now I babysit my 14 month old cousin. <_< I love my kids more than life, but honestly other than the two of them I don't really like kids.

Made some hashed browns and bacon, breakfast for dinner seemed like an easy and fun way to jump into cooking for myself.

Lobstah! From BAH-Stun! ;) good stuff! I've got a great online friend from there and we go back and forth about our different accents all the time.

I asked my oldest sister (I'm the youngest of five) if she appreciated the fact that I took ALL of the bad genes in my gene pool She has a masters in Nursing. She laughed, then said she was sorry. I have very good eyesite out of it, though, I'm still 20/20 at 52 years old. The eye doc said I have a perfect genetic line up. Glad something worked.

My second sister feels the same way about kids that aren't her's or her grandkids. btw Adalaide. She say's they're not even cute! (I didn't have any kids but I can usually find sonething cute about a little kid.)

We had ground sirloin with chopped portabella mushrooms and some cheese, grilled. He had potato chips, I had sweet potato. I made a salad of arugula and hearts or romaine with nothing else but dressing. (He wouldn't notice anyway, or would think it was icky.)

Glad you like ATG Pizza Irish. :rolleyes:

It's a good quickie dinner with a salad when I "take the day off" from cooking(Friday night) and hubs is gone golfing all afternoon.

It was good ole Maine Lobstah as I'm a Mainer, but a transplant. Kids are natives though!

Tonight will be breakfast for dinner. Blueberry pancakes and bacon. Need to ask my daughter what she wants the next two nights before she goes away for 5 weeks to a summer ballet program.

Our lamb shoulder will be reincarnated as a meat pie with a gluten free pastry crust.

I think kids are perfectly adorable. When they're not my responsibility and stay a safe enough distance from me that I'm not expected to interact with them. Frankly though the whole rows and rows in front of me of toddlers eating pretzels and touching EVERYTHING at church kind of freaks me out. I won't touch anything there for fear that some kid put their pretzel residue all over it.

Tonight I'm working, tomorrow night too. So, I am leaving my husband in charge of having ribs ready for me when I get home and I'll just throw some spinach and dressing next to it and call it supper. Lets all cross our fingers and hope I get something edible!

Had a pretty bad chemical reaction today while out so simple scrambled eggs, bacon and fried potatoes.

:( sorry, hon--hope you feel better soon.

We had grilled chicken.

I marinated it in pomegranate vinaigrette.

Some grilled asparagus and cole slaw with pineapple chunks and cranberries on the side.

Watching my bikini figure.

I'm having a pitcher of strawberry daquiris. Since I just went dairy free, I can't find anything to eat except a head of lettuce :lol:

Call it celebrating summer and have an extra daiquiri!

I know you are just joking, but you can eat very well dairy and gluten free. Jules Shepherd makes a living out of it. I did it for 10 months.

But as a long as you're pouring, c'mon girl, hand me a daiquiri. :)

Sorry to say, not joking, there's one glass full left in the pitcher, it's all yours :D Udi's has this monocalcium phosphate, is that a kind of dairy thing, if it's not I'll go for Udi's and skippy. Thanks for the link, already bookmarked it.

And I'm going to the grocery store tomorrow so I'll be good to go :D

Sweetie, if something has dairy it it, it has to be labeled: CONTAINS MILK. That's the beauty and blessing of food labeling laws.

Okay, now--you can't find yourself left with just a pitcher of yummy drinks and a head of lettuce. Time to get some supplies. Did you read the NEWBIE 101 thread I put together? I humbly submit, it may just help you get started.

Last I knew, you felt lousy after the crouton "incident"....you need some nourishment!! :)

Thanks IH, granted, I need to do better in the eating dept. I sometimes think that because I'm not absorbing so much, why eat? Now I'm off, hanging my head, heading back to the NEWBIE link. Maybe ill remember some of it this time around. :lol:

That's what printers are for. Print that puppy off.

Make a shopping list. EAT! :lol:

No head hanging necessary, kiddo.

You are absorbing SOMETHING from the minute you go gluten-free.

And as much as I like daiquiris, too....BOOZE is not the best idea

in a gut that is still raw. You need nourishment, kiddo.

EAT!! Said with all the love in the world. :)

I am lovin' my new indoor grill. I made steak kabobs with a Ribeye that was on sale. It took 3 minutes for MR, 5 for Medium. DP usually gets GERD from steak, so I've avoided it for quite awhile. You know that funny thing about absence makin' the heart grow fonder? Those kabobs were the best
