That's the way our bathroom window was in Bavaria :blink: How'd that ice get on the inside??? of double windows?? Of course, we had three months when the temp never rose about 0 (F), and most of the time it was -30. Fountains were all frozen in mid air, trees had icicles all winter, and the lens on our camera froze :rolleyes: when we went out to take pics of the Main River (you know, that one that carries the barges that carry the heating oil) frozen solid.

I LOVE Bavaria! Talk about a stunning region. It is so weird how the ice is on the inside of our windows that are double, too. But it gets in every single tiny little crack and really takes hold. Sometimes our windows have thick ice on the bottom and are very frosty (akin to scraping off a vehicle frosty) the rest of the way up. Sometimes we literally cannot see out of them it gets so cold. That is when it hits about -40. Our eyelashes freeze instantly. Everything here is frozen solid from the end of October (this year we had snow two weeks earlier) until mid April. Nothing above 0 over five dreadfully long months. And not just a little below 0 but a lot. :( Good news is, no slugs or flies or mosquitoes for awhile! :P

More ribs like last night. They were such a hit I am making another batch. Soooo sticky, tender (fell off the bones), juicy and luscious. But instead of oven fries we will have navy beans simply dressed with green EVOO (sorry - I hate that acronym but it comes in handy) and sprinkled with one of our 20+ finishing salts on crostini, fresh greens with a light orange white balsamic vinaigrette and dessert - crepes with lemon and butter glaze.

Somebody mentioned Aebleskivers -- think it was Addie -- my sis and guys will be having them for dessert with blueberry topping and powdered sugar -- yum -- I will smell them ;)

Dinner is shirmp, boneless chicken breasts, roasted potatoes, broccoli salad (sis doesn't eat anything green so a small side of frozen corn for her)

Dinner was lamb steak, spinach, carrots, broccoli, french beans. No cheese.

Doing well on whole30, have more energy and focus, but that means I am catching up on jobs. I am also going to bed as early as I can.

Talk of snow here this weekend. Might even get below 0. We know nothing of snow here and the whole country grinds to a halt with 6 inches snow. It is pathetic really, but happens every year :)

Last night we had Albondigas Soup. Very tasty. We used this recipe: http://www.rachaelrayshow.com/food/recipes/tex-mex-albondigas/

We put a little cheddar on top. We also had the recipe on here for the cheese bread thingys. So yummy. I made them with a really dry extra sharp cheddar and parm and sprinkles a pinch of the cheddar on top.

Tonight is more experiments: A chicken wing in the oven recipe, a smoked moz fondue and an apple crisp

Someone mentioned them to me, cause I said I was too lazy to make donuts. Now I need to go buy a pan!

pssst! (whispering)...you will notice they are all eating cheese right in front of us at the table..... :huh:

Every day. Someone has to eat your share, you aren't eating it. :P

I am surviving the cheese ok so far. I wnt to the movies with my Mum this week, and she not only had an ice cream lolly thing ( not sure what you call that) but decided to discuss how nice it was, and how she nearly had Hagen daz but they only had cookies and.cream and that's not her favourite. I think I managed to grunt. Just as well I wasn't on a sugar high...

Lisa, you are finally living in the right place for a heat-averse person! Saw this in OUR paper:

"The National Weather Service is forecasting morning frost on San Diego beaches." :)

I am loving it -- many others are whining -- not me -- I am out walking miles and miles with a big smile on my face :D

and it is really cold -- we live in a little valley about three miles from the ocean as the bird flies -- sucks in the cold air at night -- this morning I had ICE, not just normal itsy bitsy frost on my windshield -- thankfully one of the kids stayed up to 1am last night and threw nice big logs in the wood burning stove before he went to bed -- was nice and toasty for this early bird.

Nice pans end up in the thrift stores -- I got a beautiful peacock blue enamel coated cast iron one for $2!!!

Here's the recipe I use -- I just change out the flour for either gluten-free all purpose or pamela's bread mix -- pamela's is a tiny bit better -- but not worth purchasing if you have some other all purpose on hand.....

I've got a pair of wood knitting needles I use to turn them -- when the oil is the right temp -- they spin on their own -- very cool :D

blowing-kiss-thank-you-smiley-emoticon.gif for being so magnanimous. Such a team player.

You know me, always a team player. Such a burden, all this cheese. Tonight, pizza. I couldn't stand all the talk of it last night!

I'll check out the thrift shops. I am more of a Griswold girl though, and will probably end up trolling ebay until I find a nice old antique. I still haven't gotten myself a new birthday cast iron pan. :D I don't have anything against the enamel ones exactly, but I just prefer straight up, plain cast iron.

Despite my frustration (! #%$#@! ) with having to go without high histamine foods (and if you saw the exclusionary list of foods, you'd wanna jump off a cliff)

and no grains and no cheese, and NO BOOZE

I am thinking that having this painiful burning skin and bones crisis was perhaps a good thing.

It just hammered it home that even after 2 years, I may not be "there yet" but at least I am sure now what I am dealing with, I guess

(and smoochies to SKILISA for being so helpful and for commiserating). :wub:

Okay, some thinking ...and coconut aminos are allowing me to make the following for dinner tonight:

Beef, peppers, onions and broccoli stir fry.

over

rice

noodles

dammit <_<

er, spaghetti squash

There's always a Plan B ;) C, D , E

Ain't celiac fun? whoohooooo!

Hah! I felt the same way about my tyramine list when the doctor handed it to me. Good thing I live in the valley and don't have the energy to get to a cliff. :lol:

Seriously, the list is a mile long list of HEALTHY FOOD! I was like what.... the..... hell..... :blink: '

And yes, it is a hoot. At least we have something to keep us on our toes into old age. :P

I knew I could count on you for the "unicorns and rainbows shooting out of our butts" silver lining thinger.

I can't have any shrooms right now (only you ;)) and I did use garlic and it turned out just fab. Hubs is a big beef and broc lover and gave me the "oh you can make this anytime, babe" line--which means "it's good"

me too...no peppers -- waiting on amazon for my coconut aminos cuz I'm a cheap sob :o

Go Go IH!!!

Thanks, toots!
