. I think if we averaged out the tree decorating I have at least 4 of you covered. And you don't have to clean up glitter for weeks :)

Nope, just pine needles until July :lol:

I just did something dumb. I wanted to edit my post and hit "Reply" instead. Oops-a-daisy! :blink:

been there done that. ....Replying to yourself is part of the "gluten free lifestyle"

Any hash browns to go with that?

one order of hash browns......coming up!

hahaha!!!

and there it is.....better late than never. Hi Notme!

okayl I have mastered the quadruple reply (thanks, guys for the tutorial) and now, it is time for bed. G'nite...and sweet dreams, all.

oh, and the tree? is still naked (for the love of mike, things got crazy today) and so,

we had eggs, bacon and grilled baguettes for supper.

Wow, the bacon t shirt is PERFECT for if the cabana boys get cold.

Lamb of some sort for dinner.


- 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.

We tried to get into French Laundry when we were in Napa in 2003. No chance--booked solid.

I want to go to CHEZ LOVE2TRAVEL so bad.

You really are too kind. No, really! ^_^

We got in and had a fab meal - what a luxury to have the table for the evening, wander in the herb garden, peek in the back door of the kitchen.

But it would be even more of a luxury to eat a CHEZ LOVE2TRAVEL meal :) (in Croatia :lol: )

Yes! You are all invited. The weather there is slightly warmer than it is here (right now -21C plus windchill which is -30C).

Oh, Shroom!!!! that sounds wonderful! I did have glorious meals in Napa, so I was not complaining, honest, but we did so wish to try it.Maybe next time we are in California. (SkiLisa , get ready)

And, I felt that way at LeBernadin and Aureole and Daniel and The Mark in NYC... we got to peek in the kitchen, go into the tasting room, view the wines and have a server float a new napkin onto my lap every single time I "moved"

Yes, we all need to experience LOVE2TRAVEL CROATIA --great name for a restaurant, eh?

(cuz if'n we all go to Alberta, we have to shovel ----and the cabana boys will be chilly )

You certainly will have to shovel. The snow is fairly...uh...deep. The poor boys - I'm trying my best to keep them warm with lovely vittles but they are growing restless. :ph34r:

Why, oh why did I not do a multi-quote rather than respond to about 983,671 posts individually? :huh:

Dinner tonight:

Bison meatloaf with appropriate C and S (still thinking that one through)

Smashed potatoes

sauteed swiss chard

no "encore" Tiramisu left....I gave it to Elaine, the wonderufl PT/MT who takes care of me.

She said indignantly/jokingly "Hey, this piece is awfully small...." :lol: I blamed the hubs....

sounds yummy

I am sure they are warm...LOVE2TRAVEL keeps them fed and toasty, no doubt. They are not shoveling, apparently as she says the snow is up to her arse, so....no one can go anywhere .....she's got them doing SOMETHING....

We took out chicken thighs to do something with tonight, most likely baked with something on the side. That could be a problem though for my one rack oven, I want to make more thumbprint cookies since they are my absolute favorite (the ones I'm making this year just have flour, butter and cream cheese for the dough and are really tasty!!!)

So far I made chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, flourless peanut butter, brownies, thumbprints with raspberry jam, no bake and monster cookies. My freezer is FULL of cookies! This weekend I have to get the fudge done that I give for gifts and the Christmas molded jello (Santas and snowflakes and I think candy canes were part of the mold).

Those cookies sound lovely. I haven't made any because of my...er...lack of willpower in that department. But I will be making Brazilian truffles and Fruit Pâtes - unsure of the flavour. Probably raspberry or apricot.
