I am pretending to be a functioning adult right now...good lawd, where's my brain at? Did you see my brain? (I'm talking to the cat....)

I can't blame gluten for my problems IH but I am totally feeling your pain. (((hugs))) I'm resenting being a girl today and frankly there is just no way in hell I'm cooking. I threw some buffalo chicken dip together into my baby crock pot and frankly if hubby doesn't like it he can figure out his own dinner. I've never made it before but I know I'll love it. I'm just masochistic enough today to torture myself some more with something spicy, I already feel like hell... I may as well pile it on by taking off the roof of my mouth and throwing in some heartburn.

((hugs)) I have to say, I do not miss the "reason why we may resent being a girl."

And as always, I love you madly-- for making me laugh. :D

If this chicken dish works out, you need to share this recipe too! Your crock pot pulled pork in root beer??---still has everybody talking!

Feel better, hon...and tell hubs to stay out of your way.... :ph34r:

ooh man, I am thinking MIL better not wander into the kitchen right now....

I love that you write like you speak, conversationally. It's cute.

But the resenting feeling like a girl bit sure isn't cute. I, too, am dealing with the same resentment and am cranky about it. Downright cantankerous. This morning I warned my husband NOT to bug me. At all. Not today or tomorrow. At least. You just never know what I might do! :angry:

Anyway, your post made me laugh out loud. :P

OK - where is this recipe for pulled pork in root beer? Inquiring minds need to know!

Haha, I always warn my husband. If he wants to stay happily married we need to spend a day or two a month not speaking to each other.

Anyway, the pulled pork isn't really a recipe, it's more of a guideline. You need whatever pork roast makes you happy, I tend to buy whatever is cheapest, and some root beer and some BBQ sauce. The root beer is important. You need a whole 2 liter bottle and it absolutely must not be diet. I buy something made and bottled at a local place which probably has enough sugar to put an elephant into a diabetic coma. This is the sort of thing you're looking for. Cover the pork with root beer in a crock pot and cook until you remember you were making dinner, usually 6-12 hours. Shred, and throw out the nasty root beer. I throw it back in the pot with BBQ sauce and heat until toasty warm. I usually use Sweet Baby Ray's because it's easy and I know it's safe but sometimes I get adventurous and try something new. It is best enjoyed with additional root beer.

omg I know! In my Grammy's house it was the normal practice to have a bowl of cereal before bed. This took care of all of the hungrys, thirstys, etc and got people off without a hitch. I may have only spent a night a week there but to this day I always snack before bed and it is commonly cereal. If I go to bed without a snack I'll wake up with my stomach gnawing on my spine in retribution. :lol:

Sweet! ;)

In my Grammy's house, it was ice cream. A beautiful memory! I slept in a big brass bed there and looked out a small window at the night sky and see the moon and my Auntie (who lived with my Grams) would tell me..."see the moon, honey? well, every time you look up and see it---just know I love you."

cool, huh?

Dinner tonight, and appropriately, in her honor ...Armenian Pizza. It's called Lamejun and it's something I have worked on so I can enjoy it once more.

meat pie, made with ground lamb, peppers, tomatoes, garlic, etc.

Bannock is Indian Fry Bread. You slice them in half and put anything "taco" on them.

I posted a recipe for Bannock about a week ago.

I never heard of that called bannock tacos before. My girlfriend always called it Navajo tacos but I suppose maybe being Navajo gave her a bias? :lol: I wish I had taken her up on her offer of learning to make the bread sometime before she moved away, I still kick myself over that one.

My caring husband shared his cold with me this weekend so he got to be in charge of supper more or less. We had chicken tacos. I can't believe that I'm finally at a point where I practically, almost trust someone else with my food. Although I sort of supervised a little from inside my pounding head.

Around here they call them Indian Tacos or Bannock Tacos and they sell them at all the Pow Wows.

I posted a recipe for the fried version but there is a baked version, just do a search.
