Beautiful pic, Lisa!

I am about over this cold snap..... going to a birthday party tonight so we will probably eat a late lunch and leave it at that.

That pic makes my teeth chatter! You guys all look so happy though, yay!!! :D

Apparently the hubs was so thrilled with the fried chicken that he declared we were having it again. :blink: I'm gonna be so fat I won't be able to wear my yoga pants and I'll have to drag my fat arse onto my elliptical nekkid. :ph34r:

It has warmed up to -15 (minus 15) so my walk was unusually lovely. So much nicer than -32 and colder....brrrrrr....

Chicken stir here, nice bit of bok choy plus the usual suspects.

We are mostly doing wet and windy here, nearly got blown away by the beach yesterday. I think I love the windswept beach as much as the sunny one ( just in shorter doses).


- 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.

My cure for the winter vegetable blahs is always a roast up of root vegetbles - sweet potatoes, potatoes, parsnips, onions, shallots, and a zucchini if you can find it and some tomatoes tossed in at the end.

I love things like this. I also have a nice stash of squash I haven't quite used up yet. Vegetables that don't feel all in your face but are more comfort food and wintery and palatable when all you want is meat meat and more meat.

Tonight I'm just making a quick beef and broccoli since we had lunch at about 3.

Speaking of lunch, just have to say that I have the best mom. We went over to visit and weren't going to stay long, but mom decided to make my daughter a loaf of bread so she can try grilled cheese. So we were spending a little more time with them and then my gram wants sandwiches so my mom goes out to the store and buys my girls Schar white bread and Schar chocolate dipped cookies and made them ham, turkey, salami and provolone sandwiches with pickles and dill pickle chips for lunch.

Ditto! I loves me some root veggies (with a little wine and brussel sprouts thrown in but please hold the tomatoes for me)

so my mom goes out to the store and buys my girls Schar white bread and Schar chocolate dipped cookies and made them ham, turkey, salami and provolone sandwiches with pickles and dill pickle chips for lunch.

What a sweet Mom/Gramma! :wub: Those Schar choc- dipped cookies are pretty tasty. I had them once and thought, okay, maybe it is best if they are not around all the time as I do not need to be waddling..

Steak with Quick Onion Confit

Broccoli

with Mac & Cheese for the guys -- loving using sharp cheddar cheese spread for quick mac and cheese -- they are loving it more ;)

Walked 6 miles in the rain this morning with my dog -- she hates rain and water but was a trooper -- mile 4 she said she was done -- a little pep talk and she sprung back to it -- gotta love their spirit.

Then movie theater hopping date with my 17 year old -- Les Mis plus Silver Linings -- and I still am not tired. Is this how non celiacs feel their whole life?

Last night - grilled steaks ( marinated a bit in Teryaki) and some red potatoes with olive oil in foil packets. Green beans. Got some odd red potatoes. The select the ones you want we're picked over so I grabbed a bigger bag. They cooked up really soft and were yellow colored on the inside. M said they are like buttery potatoes. Today I looked at the bag and they are called Butter red potatoes and meant for mashing. We liked them.

Tonight we are having lasagna. I might add a layer of spinach so we don't have to have salad, too?

I like to put what I am fixing on here because I think this talk of conflicts and pots de creme might scare regular folks away! :)

Even if they fall apart, the fillings will still be tasty.

If its a tomato based sauce, blend it up into really small pieces and stir it in. You can pass it off as parsley if asked :P I believe you can also do this with broccoli too.

Mac and cheese i think. I forgot to lay something out and yeah... ^_^

Yo Ski!

While watching the Travel Channel today, I saw a place called Hash House A Go Go in SD.

He's big on bacon and even serves a BLT Mary (a bloody Mary BLT) That would be fun, except his place looks like gluten hell--all those waffles

and such.

Dinner tonight:

Pork tenderloin with onions

Applesauce

Roasted root veggies

Also:

I made some of Bette Hagman's English Muffins for the hubs yesterday. Toasted them up with his eggs today--and he was just so happy!

:)

Be sure to tell him "hold the bread" on yours ( apparently, he serves it with bread and thick tomato slices) One lady was making YUM YUM sounds

on camera, so it must be good.
