The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Wednesday when I was trolling around I noticed no one had posted for THREE WHOLE DAYS!!!. I was like, this would never have been allowed to happen if love2travel was home. We're all happy to have you back!

Tonight I used up all my energy making butter, so just leftover pork and apple cole slaw.

Well, I suppose that's half a lie about how I used up all my energy. I went shopping for new jeans that fit. I need to figure out how to appropriately fit whole milk into my diet now though since I can't buy 2% raw milk before I just blow right back up like a hippo.

I have gone "primal" now--- to try and alleviate inflammation, so I made:

Roasted pork loin

Garlicky sweet potato fries

Spinach salad

i heard that 2% is better for ya because your body digests it better than nonfat. Don't know if its true or not. I drink 2%.

at any rate, leftovers for me.

I think the opposite might be true. But if you need calories, whole milk is even better., Its still only 4% fat.

We are having Minksys pizza tonight. I'm having "Nature's Choice" -Artichoke hearts, zucchini, green peppers, mushrooms and onions, topped with sliced tomatoes and slivered almonds.

Seasonal for us.... and fresh from the Sound - Baked Rock Fish (Stripped Bass) covered with bacon with roasted potatoes, carrotts, onions and celery.

Everything is better with bacon! :D

Do not tell my son - who has a t shirt ' If bacon grew on trees, I would be a vegetarian" that you can get a side of bacon at dinner, too!

I have never met anyone who did not like bacon. Really.

Bacon is yummy.

Milk is complicated for me right now because of iodine. I found an organic farm that sells whole raw milk I can safely have. The issue is I'm jumping from 2% to full fat milk so it's a calorie increase so I'm worried about my new jeans staying a good fit! I'll figure it out. Supper was super yummy.

MMMMM!!!!!! Bacon!! I can't wait to start having bacon again. I need to find an organic pig farm now that makes bacon that's safe for me.

:lol:

We loved the time Red had to stop eating bacon on "That 70s Show "and Eric kept eating it in front of him and taunting him with it..."mm,,,ba-con"--emphasis on the second syllable, as if he were French.

Thanks to all this bacon chatter, tonight's dinner:

Maple mustard chicken thighs with carmelized onion and BACON.

Baked acorn squash

we'll skip the side of bacon with dinner (as we are also having bacon in the crustless quiche cups for lunch).

Oink.

Roast chicken and all the veg. I'm wondering now about adding bacon on top ;)


- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!

- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol

- 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.

Those sherried mushrooms are just ridiculously good aren't they?

(I just pictured Shroomie with a glass of sherry in her hand...but I digress. Must be ba-con head)

So happy to see you "home" and sharing your drool -worthy menu once more..

I had... Pizza!!111!!1Onety-one.

Ok, the crust looked and tasted like a giant round cracker, because it didn't grow and became fluffy like actual pizza, though it tasted well enough and it wasn't bad to eat. It just didn't feel like pizza. But it's gluten free and dairy-free, not to mention the healthiest thing I could find, so it's definitely a treat I will keep in my pantry.


Lactose free: 8/6/2006

Gluten and dairy free: 5/2/2012

Grain free: 11/12/2012

I am able to eat somre processed foods again (chocolate, lollipops, soysauce).
