Huh...how does the Chicken Skin react with you?  Since I've given up so many other things - stealing Crunchy Chicken Skins has before meat hits the table has become a guilty pleasure for me.

 

Its some stupid tyramine crap with my pseudotumor nonsense. :rolleyes: I can usually get away with an itty bitty bit of skin, but as much as is on a whole leg and I'm done. I am so a pick the skin off a chicken kind of person too. I could pretty much go to Costco, buy a chicken, eat the skin and not feel the least bit guilty. And I don't mean the skin from my part of the chicken, I mean the whole chicken.

 

And yes, cinnamon is a stupid histamine thing... but my attitude with that has turned into come the hell on! How the hell is a little cinnamon here and there really hurting me? (I'm not looking for a real answer. :P) I went there with food, I'm not going there with flavor. <_<

I hear you...and I have been having small amounts of histamine over the past months...occasionally more than a small amount of wine...but after last week I am tiptoeing around my food this week ;)

Most awesome....SnickerDoodle Mousse for me again tomorrow...hoping to get it to firm up in the frig....the choc version tastes creamier without freezing....of course that means more coconut oil...but not getting much fat elsewhere so I am not feeling guilty...nope.

My BLT got put off until tomorrow's lunch. We were at the store and found pork um... they're basically like hamburger things. Whatever, they were yummy with some sort of maple seasoning thinger I have in the pantry and some squash and onions.

 

My tomatoes did get roasted though so I'm all set to come home tomorrow from my IV nonsense, pop my bacon in the oven and get all set to have a toasty BLT and put myself to bed for the afternoon. Sounds positively delightful. :)

My stupid iron infusions. I was so excited about them when it meant I wouldn't be sick every day for however long, and I am still thrilled that I have this option over the pills don't get me wrong... it's just... ugh. I hate the headache for a whole day nonsense.

 

You made me want a Frosty now. There isn't anything in them I can't have. Shouldn't maybe, but can't no. :D It is far easier to find the ambition to buy one when you're already leaving the house.

 

I'm leaving the house to do things. Would someone please come take the scissors away from this woman before she hurts herself. :lol:

well, we know it's best if I do not have them in my hands.... :lol:

 

Terrible migraine last night and today, shoulder pain, just ugly...why does this happen? whothehellknows!

Going to see the PT/MT and see if she can work her magic and get me out of spasm. errg.

 

So tonight's dinner will be as simple as it gets,

 

Bison patties with garlic mayo maybe

sweet potato fries

corn on the cob (told you guys--I'm eating it every other day until it goes out of season!)

J's tomatoes have blight (stoopid rain) and he is totally bumming about it  (my herbs are okay) so we got a few from the nearby farm.

 

Just luscious. I can only have a few bites at a time.

 

um, what's a Frosty? a thick ice cream shake thinger?  I am sure I will like---if you two like it so much.

here is a recipe from the interwebs - i found others on there if you're a fan of cool whip (i am not) that might be easier and isn't cool whip non-dairy?  my kids dip their french fries in them.  this recipe is not very dairy friendly, i'm afraid  :(  but i'll bet y'all are clever enough to sub in non-offending ingredients  :)

 

Homemade Chocolate Frosty
Makes 1 quart

2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup (4 ounces) chocolate syrup
1 (7 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Whisk together the milk, chocolate syrup, and condensed milk, and refrigerate until chilled, at least one hour. In a separate mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream and vanilla until soft peaks just begin to form. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Pour the chocolate milk mixture into the bowl of the ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturers instructions (about 15 - 20 minutes in my Cuisinart). Once the ice cream is thick, turn the maker off, remove the paddle, and fold in the chilled whipped cream until it is completely incorporated.

Serve immediately, or transfer to a covered, freezer-safe container and freeze. (If freezing, let ice cream soften a few minutes before serving; you want it to be the consistency of a milkshake.)

I think it will have to be some kind of chicken thinger. Not much brain power today...

I am off to Google snickerdoodle in the name of international cultural understanding :)


- 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.

Snickerdoodle = cinnamon sugar cookie

So to make my limited diet sound more fun to me....I come up with silly names.

Doing a lot of mind tricks to make my food more interesting while I hang with the ubber safe foods.....ive had spiraled sweet potatoes for three days straight....but one day white...one day orange....and last night was bright purple fried in coconut oil then tossed in tiny brussel sprouts and cubed chicken...was pretty and tasty ... and also became my breakfast today.

Irish.... :(

Feel better soon and so sorry about Hub's Tomatoes - big bummer.

I don't have an ice cream maker... so going to Wendy's is just far easier for me. And yes, dipping fries in a Frosty is positively awesome! Utah is one of the first states to be getting complete remodels on all of our Wendy's (to my understanding) and they are all getting those fancy touch screen Coke soda fountains with over 100 flavor combos. We mosey in a few times a year now just to get sodas we can't get anywhere else. And yes, they're like a milkshake only way way awesomer.

 

Sorry about the blight and the shoulder. :(

I told my husband we're having gnocchi tonight. All he knows is that I needed potatoes to make it, he really has no idea what it is. All he said was "I'm not sure if I'll like it or not." My bet is on not, but whatever. That just means more for me!

 

I trimmed one of the mint bushes this morning, had the sense this time to bring it in the house to do it. After everything I cut is dry and into a jar and marinating in vodka I'll move on to the next one. Two more mint plants to go, although I think I'll use the pineapple mint to make some fruit salads with. Or, at least as much of it as is reasonable. :lol:

oooh, ooh....i want gnocchi too....waaa waaaa those should slide right down.

 

Hubs has gone to Saratoga to see the horses without me (yes, he felt bad leaving me, but not enough to stay home) 

 

We'll be having pizza when he gets home, I think. Maybe.

 

I am eating root beer popsicles right now :)

omg my husband does this too! He'll be all I feel bad that you can't X. Then he'll just do it without me, so he obviously didn't feel that bad! :lol:

 

I had mango chile popsicles to feel better. Its amazing how you turn into a kid again when you're sick. :) I had pizza last night. We went to the farmers market that is in a large shopping center which also happens to be home to my favorite pizza place. He wanted pizza so he got me pizza so he wouldn't have to feel guilty. I was not complaining. :D

 

I may have also gotten a fat artichoke, some purple cauliflower, fresh peaches and blackberries and I don't remember what else. But none of that was as noteworthy as pizza.

Popsicles freeze up my throat so it hurts less. I ate about 12 yesterday. I haven;t had one in years. LOL

And in fairness to my hubs, he went and got more popsicles in the morning and he put up with me being sick for many years, so of course he should go and have fun. He was appropriately sad for me. :D

His main concern is always what trouble Lucy will get into while he is gone for a few hours.

I watched movies all afternoon and was BORED stiff. I walked around outside and felt as if I had walked a mile.

Man, I hate being sidelined like this. 

 

Tonight is looking like simple again. Still feel kinda punky, but better, so yaaay!!.

 

I think BLT's on toast with an ear of corn (or two) works.

We picked our first corn out of the garden. So that is for supper with something else. I'm thinking meatloaf maybe. And onion rings. We'll have our blackberries with some ice cream for dessert.

He said "This is really really good" So I was happy!! :) Mine was really good to! I just didn't eat mine till he was done. I make his lunch for the next day while he eats.

I ended up making a cauliflower gratin with my purple cauliflower last night instead of onion rings. Tonight will be the rest of that with the rest of the meatloaf and more corn. I always knew I missed having silver corn, but didn't realize just how much until I had it again last night. Its something you can't just go pick up at the store or market, so you grow it yourself or you don't have any. We grew mostly silver queen and butter & sugar on the farm, and I've always kind of resented having to buy yellow corn because it just plain old isn't as good.
