Tonight we popped a can of Christmas George (ham) and baked some taters in the microwave and I roasted some asparagus. I even managed gravy for the taters. It took all of 15 minutes to make and was super delicious.

I like Karen's better...

 

so I ate way too many vegies all day...forgot to pack protein when I left house at 645am...returned home starving so I downed some more vegies cuz they were easy to throw in a bowl with pork bone broth I had simmering on stove.

 

dinner for me was steak and chicken.

 

men and sissy had steak and chicken tacos.

 

all happy...thanks hubby :)

 

think there is a touch of choc mousse left...see you manana.

:angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: Still angry this morning :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:

 

Last night was some really yummy parsnip garlic fries my hubby made me -- unfortunately I ate them ice cold because son had a late lab at college so I ran over to pick him up after running errands for my folks and sister.....son got down to the parking lot without his bike :( -- I knew right away - F**K - sorry all -- it was my "Black Beauty" Specialized Hybrid and the only road bike I can ride right now because my shoulders and wrists won't let me ride racing bike.....oh and by the by -- Hubby's jobsite got hit on Sunday night - we lost hundreds in power tools and the site lost thousands in materials -- I HATE THIEVES!!!!  Ok, rant done...for now ;)

 

Dinner tonight will be huge hamburgers on udi's bun and I am going to eat the flipping bun - well maybe.  Another batch of parsnip fries -- they were good cold so I am going for a re-do to get them while they are hot.

 

Large batch of sinful brownies will also be made -- younger son heading out backpacking for a week so I must provide the necessities :D

What the hell kind of person steals a freakin bike? I'm sorry. :angry: And don't be sorry, I'm pretty sure the reactions would be mostly the same most of the way around. Maybe they'll catch the jerk and find your bike.

Taco fixings on a baked potato for dinner tonight followed by a taste of the chocolate velvet cupcakes I made for my daughter tomorrow. She is 6 1/2 and just got invited to her first not family birthday party at a ceramics place!!! We are all very excited for her.

Hi Lisa, I've tried spaghetti squash, it's expensive here (UK), and all i ever got was stringy mush.....so I gave up on that, lol.

I've done courgette and carrot 'ribbons' with a peeler, they're OK......used a mandolin to make jullienne also. The reason why I'm hoping the spiraliser will be better is that it will make 'noodles' that are thicker than I can accomplish with a peeler and longer than those I can make with a mandolin...if that makes sense.

Yep...that makes sense and I'm looking forward to hearing how your new gadget works. Spaghetti squash took awhile for me to master - seems like it would be simple - and is now -I buy large quantities when they go on sale and keep in our storeroom that stays cool like a basement or root cellar.

Ill post how to cook them when I'm back on my laptop.

Well, i decided to retry my alfredo and spinage goodness in two parts. I retried the alfredo sauce, and outside of the mild acid reflux, i am happy to note that my body does just fine with it. That was... 3ish hours ago?

 

Though i might go make a corn tortilla with a little honey butter on it. :ph34r:  Kinda got a low blood sugar thing going on at the moment (jidders).

Awesome giraffe covers, girl!  ;) I am lucky I can sew on a button.

 

SKI

I think I expressed my outrage about the bike thief clearly enough over email, but I'll add one more &^%$! to the tirade.  :angry: asshat thief.

 

MINDWARP

Having some continued success adding foods back in down here, (brown rice and all fruits seem okay) but still unable to tolerate the high histamines ( aged cheese, alcohol, vinegars, cured meats, chocolate) . I can do a bit, but if I do too much in one day, symptoms come back.

Like you, I remain ever hopeful.

 

LOVE2

Loved,  loved,  loved your email about the new guy in your life. Bingley is a perfect name and I am so happy he has adopted you guys! ;) Much happiness with your new fur baby, hon!!

 

Dinner last night was a Greek salad (made by me) accompanied by grilled steaks and some (gluten-free of course) almond macaroons.

But I did not have to cook! yaay!

 

The management of the hotel/cottages does a 'welcoming dinner for the residents. The owner and his wife have a son with Crohn's (but they suspected celiac and he was tested for that, so they "get" it). He assured me the only herbs/spices on the steaks would be McCormick's.  :)

 

A singer/guitarist played for 4 hours while people ate, drank, and chatted. (and sang horrible renditions of "Wasted Away again in Margaritaville)   :lol: ) The guests are from all over the US, Canada and Europe and they started off with a giant "pot luck" appetizer table. They all ate mini hot dogs wrapped in dough, crackers and cheese, packaged cheese spreads and crackers, something that looked like fried dough balls?? Devlied eggs (which the hubs scarfed down) Honestly, I could not possibly have cared less for what they were serving, all that gluteny blech. When urged to eat, I simply said "Thanks, but that stuff will kill me"   Laughter ensued (must be my delivery? or they were drunk ) but some asked why?  I give my 20 second answer and today, I have people asking me more questions.  Celiac awareness takes no vacations.  :D Even the massage therapist grilled me and now, her hubs is getting tested.

 

The night before, we made a Chebe pizza with fresh vegs  --the produce stand nearby is just remarkable--and I enjoyed it immensely. Apparently, mozzarella is okay, but not parmesan--but that's cool with me. I'm happy just to have some "za".

 

My best friend, the chef is making traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage tomorrow  and I'll be bringing the Flourless chocolate cake, as she requested. I can whip that up in the AM.

 

I had Mahi-Mahi with coconut/mango marinade and brown rice couscous and herbs the day before that. 

 

That's all for now. I have limited wifi, so I am sorry this post was so long.

I am working on a b%$@#in tan............... B) be good. xx IH

Loved your post, IH!!!  Love seeing people enjoying life and being happy.  :P

 

Happy Birthday to Me!  Tonight I am making:

 

- Seared bacon wrapped diver scallops that I first dip into a garlic butter mixture then roll in bacon, sear and then serve with a roasted chestnut and wild mushroom cream (dried mushrooms foraged in Croatia we brought home in October)

- Roasted spicy edamame beans

- Standing Rib Roast with a porcini/orange zest et. al. rub - will be roasting to a perfect 130.

- Roast baby potatoes in beef drippings

- I was going to braise pork belly but my back is not allowing it (I slipped on ice yesterday in the park and had a bad fall - landed on my left hip)

- Eton Mess for dessert (made the meringue and raspberry coulis yesterday so just have to whip the cream and layer with all sorts of berries and top with toasted almonds and toasted coconut)

 

The house smells simply sublime!  Can't wait til my husband comes home from work.  ;)

Happy Birthday Love2travel! Hope you have a great day.

 

Tonight we are ordering in from someplace that has a great track record with gluten-free, and they have a huge menu. We are having sandwiches, mozzarella sticks, pierogies and my hubby is getting me a cannoli because that is probably the one thing that I never stopped missing.

Sounds like IH is having a blast. Foodie dream for vacation, it sounds positively divine.

 

I got cauliflower in my basket today and I didn't want to do the same old boring crap with it. So I headed to google and found a fun recipe for spicy buffalo cauliflower. I was a little scared but it is super delicious. I made Frank's buffalo dip to go with it and an easy Christmas George for my husband again.

meanwhile...I got really pissed at the mgr of the specialty liquor store that TOLD me, "yes, we carry Green's Double Dark Gluten Free Beer"  Liar, Liar, pants on fire!!!  Redbridge it is...didn't feel like driving or wasting more gas to go to another store that carries a better selection of gluten-free beer...live, learn and have a glass of wine to chill out  :)

Happy Birthday, LOVE!!2 and my special wish for you this year (as it is for every single day) is for less pain. So sorry you took a spill. Make sure you get that inflammation down with " Ice, ice baby." 

(if any of you recognized that as a song by Vanilla Ice from the 90's---well, you're old. ) :lol:

 

SKI

The Redbridge will do for brining that beef, but J says you're wasting your time drinking it. (but he's an admitted beer snob, so take that for what it's worth)

 

ADDY

I am impressed you still have some Christmas George and anything innovative with cauliflower works for me. Alone, it just tastes like....um, air.

 

ALEX

So happy you can enjoy that cannoli!! and safe take out!! yaay and whoohooo!!!

 

Happy St. Paddy's all!!  As the Irish say:  SLAINTE! (meaning, "to health") and with that, I toast you all! Hugs.

Crazy (and totally wrong) Irish toast I saw recently. Given the proclivity for the Irish to have celiac (so much so that they dub it "celtic disease") I find it bizarrely ironic. (but I have a twisted sense of humor as you know)

 

Knew you guys would find it funny.Cheers!

 

 

"Rye bread will do you good,

Barley bread will do you no harm,

Wheaten bread will sweeten your blood,

Oaten bread will strengthen your arm."

 

 

 

er, nope.  :blink:

Happy Birthday love2

Happy St Patrick's day everyone

IH it sounds like you are having a ball, fantastic.

So, I have confirmed that soy is not my friend. Tried gluten-free soy sauce last week and had bad tum. Tried a handful of fresh soy beans last night. I got got. Rashes on face, sore throat then cramps, bloating and exhaustion this morning. And I think I found the source of post nasal drip and persistent cough.

Lovely sunny day, family at in laws, feeling better this afternoon, so chilling and taking an afternoon off :)

Worry about dinner later...

I've adopted coconut aminos too. They aren't the same, but they work well in sauces and such. I also don't miss soy, I miss soy sauce! It drives me up a wall that soy is this "healthy" thing so it is everything. At least lecithin doesn't bother me. Yet.

 

I have 3 jars of George left. Friday night my husband brought home Easter George from work. (We figure every pig has two ham legs so there isn't a need for a new name yet.) They were selling fast, and so now I have to have a 20 pound ham in my fridge for the next two weeks. <_<

 

I managed to score a pretty small corned beef at the store last night, so that will be tonight's dinner. I got a ton of good veggies yesterday in my basket so it seemed silly to buy a head of cabbage when I have what is probably a week's worth of vegetables already other than potatoes. So, I think roasted potatoes and I'll probably decide at the last minute between asparagus and fried green beans.
