The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I spent most of my day at the library with Clifford, Curious George and listening to a band singing math songs to classic rock songs (ex. Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith was Calculators) and then we took the girls for ice cream (soft serve blueberry...yum!!!). Anyway that meant a quick dinner of hot dogs on Udis buns with roasted garlic and sea salt chips and coleslaw (cabbage, carrots and apple with a honey mustard vinegarette).

Alex, that sounds like a perfect day to me!!!

I'm an "old school". dinosaur.  I  still like "holding" books while I read them and I like libraries. too  and I hope they do not become extinct in our techno world.

 

Dinner tonight will be roast pork with onions and garlic and baked sweet potatoes and maybe baby peas.

 

Taking the day off from physical labor. I'm pooped. :wacko:

Good Morning All!

Wonderful day yesterday except I flipped a kayak so my mobile is resting in the oven with hydrogen peroxide on its little connections - likely dead but hought id give it until tomorrow to spring back.

Cakes were awesome - cake makes everybody happy :)

Ive got several slices of each left - stop on by for a piece along with a cup of Jo!

Celiac results in celibacy --

Health reverses the process :D

Edit to add I kindle sucks - it changed ive words in my post - will hop back by when I get back to my laptop.

Libraries are awesome! Nothing can compare to the smell of one and while I have an ereader, which got me through some of the roughest times when I was so sick I could barely stand to hold even it, nothing can compare to an actual book. Of course, you can't get the classics for free on paper which was my primary reason for my ereader. I've read so many free books that I have far exceeded the cost of the thing, so although I rarely touch it these days I don't feel bad at all.

 

I'm feeling exceedingly lazy today. I may just tell my husband to eat whatever he wants and finish off my chicken pot pie. He has a stash of pizzas and there is that spare meatloaf if he feels like that would make him happy.

I'm going to make a cake... :ph34r:

I have plenty of soup left over so all i have to do is warm that up.

Re-heated soup turns into cake? What kind of soup is that! :)

I am not the only with saran wrap issues, I see. :lol:

 

Bette Hagman rocks! First woman of gluten-free baking. 

 

If you do not like her version for any reason, I HIGHLY recommend Peter and Kelli Bronski's pie dough recipe.

Flaky, light and rolls out like the real thing. Tastes awesome. 

 

When my Mom, the champion flaky pie crust maker of the family (besides my Gramma, her mother)

said to me last Thanksgiving  "omg, this is just like my mother's!" to me,

well, it was the proudest G F baking moment of my albeit short-thus-far G F baking career.

 

Let me know if you want to try it and I'll  type it out for you.

 

Enjoy that chili (I loves me some chili!)

:lol: skip the crust and just put a topping on it (like a crumble) and that would be good enough for me.

 

At any rate, i don't think the cabbage in that soup would go good with cake :lol:

I pulled my frozen meatloaf out today. Just not feeling like cooking. I'll think up some veggies for it and have an easy dinner. We've got some errands to run this afternoon and I'm paying a dear price for my indulgences last week. Plus, not feeling super has led to a wee pile of dishes over the weekend that I need to tackle today. :ph34r: I must have misplaced my magic wand.

I started a pot roast and veggies crock pot thinger (I love LOVE2TRAVEL's word) this morning before I went to the gym.

 

(yes, I went to the gym the day after major yard work, and after a week of heavy lifting and really, what the heck is going on here? Me, doing physical labor and not wanting to kill myself from the pain??!  Healing the gut, collagen supplements, change in diet, MT, PT..... and magic wands at work, I guess. whoohoo) 

 

and I have to say, I just returned and the house smells like YUM!!! :) Slow cookers are wonderful thingers. Karen was right!

 

If you find your magic wand, Addy would you kindly wave it over the rest of the garden for me. Make the leaves disappear?

I'd like to know who put that giant pin oak over my garden beds. I'd like to kick his butt.  Oh wait, I'm the doofus who put the garden beds

too close to the tree 16 years ago. duh.

My best friend who used to be my roommate has always complained that I made her fat while we were living together. How? My insomnia. How does my insomnia make other people fat? Well, things like tonight happen. When you are tired and can't sleep you get bored. When you are bored, you get hungry. When you grew up baking and are bored and hungry, you migrate to the kitchen.

 

I didn't actually bake tonight, but suddenly decided I couldn't live another moment without tapioca pudding. Not the kind that comes in a Jello pudding box, and not the kind that comes in a red box. The kind that comes from pearls that you stir for half a lifetime. I have to say that there is nothing in the world quite like a bowl of warm tapioca pudding late at night. I know what I'm having with my dinner tomorrow... if it lasts that long.

I love homemade tapioca pudding with fresh whipped cream....total yumsters.  Enjoy! 

 

Dinner tonight is going to be escarole and white bean soup. 

 

Right after I finish cleaning the garden beds out. I'm on a mission....

Chicken stir fry, rice and veg.

I have been starving all day, I ate too many cashews.

My garden is a mess. If only we could do all the stuff we do when selling a house to the one we live in now. Mind you, me have visitors booked for 3 days next month, so have to get the spare room sorted by then...


- 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.

I'm a brutal task-master and have no qualms barking orders and tossing out things. (hard to believe, given how delightful and sedate I am, isn't it?) Shall I come over?

yes, the end of the month we have family coming in - one spare room is 'ready' - we have alot to do.  plus, i can't get everybody to commit what exact day they are coming, so all my plans on who to put in which house/room are all up in the air.  on the up side, these plans will probably change one hundred times from now til then!

the tossing out things part!!  between me (sentimental) and hubs ("that might be good for something - we might *need* it")  we have a bunch of crap that, honestly, i would never go looking for or miss if it was gone.  it's the tossing out part we get stuck on!

Not I, not me. (I love doing that, did you notice?) LOL

I keep sentimental stuff too, but the stuff you have not used in five years? Never going to use it. Let it go.

Will soon be on a plane to Croatia. Dinner tonight will just be a snack as I have several billion excited butterflies in my tummy. Cannot wait for the wondrous seafood and fish from the Mediterranean! We will be frequenting the markets for fresh produce to cook in our charming outdoor kitchen, which is a far cry from our solid block of ice we call northern Canada. Snowing at the moment. Again! REDRUM, REDRUM, REDRUM. THINGER, THINGER, THINGER. Don't worry about me...bwah ha ha ha....

I had a blast using a paper shredder for 3 days. That thing is awesome!

The things "someone" had kept "JIC"...oy. Everyone needs receipts from 1984 right? :mellow:

I should talk, I had student grade sheets, letters, evals, etc. from just as far back. I kept some of them because they meant something to me

at the time. One read- through on a rainy afternoon and I had a good cry and a few laughs, put aside a chosen few (most importantly, the notebook of hand-written letters from the very first class I taught back in the stone age) and the rest, I shredded and chucked.

No regrets.
