That chicken looks so idiot proof even I could do it!

 

I'm all for idiot- proof anything these days. ;) lots of idiocy circulatin....

I am starting to cook whatever I grab first out of the freezer these days since I have to empty it out in 3 weeks

and I am up to my arse in packing tape and boxes. I am just taking a break to check in and say

"Let's all send our SkiLisa healing wishes, okay? she's not feeling well

and she could use our collective healing vibes and hugs!" YO, SKI... :wub: get well, babes!miss ya.

 

Tonight's surprise package was......veggie lasagne with the date 6/28 on it. Works for me.

Thanks for posting the chicken recipe. Sounds great. And thanks for telling me to use the damn crock pot in the first place.

if only I had an almond horn to go with....can ya shoot one up here, willya? thanks, toots!

I got steak for dinner Sunday night.  they didn't look very big in the meat counter, so I got 3.  They were huge!  WE are having the leftover on steak salad tonight!  Yum!  Or Hub might use the left-over chicken.  It already tastes a bit like salad dressing so he wants it on a salad.

It said 4 on high.  I think 4 on low would have been better.  Or 2 on high.  Without the bones, they don't take long to cook.

I was actually thinking about her when I was layin in bed last night unable to fall asleep. She hasn't been pokin her nose in and I was wondering what's up.

 

I write years on what I put in the freezer for a reason. Sometimes things end up in the bottom and eventually one day I'll end up all the way down there again and be like when the hell did this end up in here? I need a good way to keep track of whether things are 3 months old or a year and 3 months old... or maybe even older. :ph34r:

 

I think we're doing chicken balls with orange sauce again. We had a ton of leftover sauce because I didn't have the sense to make half a batch. (Or it could have something to do with forgetting I'm making half and measuring one of the ingredients in for as much as the recipe says, but I would never cop to that.) So we'll have that tonight and polish off the sauce because it would be dreadful to let it go to waste.

Okay... I'm not crazy and I didn't call them that for the lolz. (Although it is pretty funny.) And no, the chicken can not have his balls back.

They look and taste exactly like Chinese takeout when they're done. I'm already kinda trying not to drool on myself thinking about dinner. Mmmmmm......... chicken balls. :P

Actually-1 .  and some left-over meat.  probably only need about 3/4 lb of burger.  They were really good.  They need the egg wash as it gives them a nice crisp crust.

Tonight was a really good salad, sliced smoked chicken, and home made oven fried FF and sweet potato fries.  Thanks to Karen G, I didn't struggle slicing the sweet potato this time.  Thanks, K.G.

Well, I modified it.  I nuked the sweet tater for 2 minutes.

 

I'm not sure which is worse, hard chopping or hot fingers, lol.

 

I find out Tuesday or Wed if I have diabetes on top of gluten intolerance and Lupus, so I had to have my taters tonight.  I think I probably have it, bubbles in my urine, blah blah blah.

 

Keep 'em  fingers crossed for me.  I reckon I'll go make myself a large vodka with fresh mango and tonic, too.  I can be in denial until the actual verdict, lol.

 

xxx,

Thanks Karen & Notme,

 

I got a good laugh today when I called my 87 year old aunt to wish her a happy Labor Day. 

 

She was getting ready to mow her 3/4 acre lawn by the way.

 

When I mentioned I might have diabetes, she said "Oh No!  That's a pia, you'll have to watch what you eat!" 

 

I told her I was pretty used to that, and could cope with being a pokeahauntus too

Just made some onigiri to go with dinner tonight. I'm also going to be making a veggie stir-fry.

 

It was going to be lunch, but i had to eat something and the rice was taking a while (rinse it, soak it, cook it, steam it). My veggies are already prepared as well. So all i'll have to do is toss them in the pan and cook them.

 

Also, I am quite happy to have found good sushi rice. I have been wanting to make onigiri for a while. No filling in these this time, but i thought it would be more fun than to have just a plain bowl of rice.

......  So I'm yakking with my mum tonight and she was making pasta for dinner (because in Boston, it is still "Prince Spaghetti day" on Wednesday and a tradition that has carried on in my home for 30+ years, regardless of a celiac DX).

And, I actually went to the same HS as Anthony who appeared in those commercials. (If you know what I am talking about....I got news for ya....pssst! YER OLD!)

so, she told me she found a new gluten-free pasta by Ronzoni ....and  asks me:

"so, IrishHeart (wise ass that she is).... Is it from a dedicated facility?"

Quick check on google...yes Ma, it's cool. Mangia!

She says.,...ok, love you, gotta go!.....My Ma eats at 5:30, no matter if she is talking to her fave child.
LOL

I looked it up and see this review:

http://www.glutenfreebaking.com/public/review_Ronzoni_GlutenFree_Penne_Rigate.cfm#.UiegmT_9WcY

Might go git me some tomorrow......

 

meanwhile, testing the very limits of a histamine intolerance, I am having bruschetta tonight.

yes, the last of the tomato and basil plants (now, cue the sad music....) and the end of the veggie garden in our home of 26 years.....sniffle sniffle

Making shredded chicken sammies.

 

This is a regional favorite and by regional, I mean Ohio.  

 

1. Crock Pot

2. 2 cans of cream of chicken soup

3. Around 50-70 oz. Oz. canned chick's.

4. Some bread crumbs or crackers

 

Optional, onions or whatever floats yer boat.  Spoon on buns or slop on taters like I do :)

 

Cook for at least 2 hours.  Consistency like sloppy Joes.

 

Enjoy the taste of the Midwest.

Hey Colleen

Great to have you about :)


- 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.

It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer. ~Albert Einstein hidsmile2t.gif

good :) we missed you!  

 

tonight - i had the worst craving for caramel apples, i usually have apples but no caramel so i made caramel sauce and dipped them.  i ate A TON.  i ruined my appetite!!  

 

so, it's beer brats for the hubs w/onions & mushrooms if he wants (i have them cooking now) (i might try them later) and frying up some pickled red cabbage.  

 

caramel apples and redbridge - sounds like i have all the food groups covered......  probably need some chocolate.... (and salt!  oh, no!  gotta check my calendar!!)  :blink:  :lol:

I've been housesitting where the WiFi is sporadic so have missed posting recently.  Am also getting ready for our big Croatia/Italy trip in three weeks for the month of October.  Came into town to do more cooking to take back with me.  I made a big batch of Bolognese - very authentic with white wine, milk, etc.

 

Tonight is:

 

- Greek baby back ribs

- lemon rice soup

- roast lemon baby potatoes

- Greek salad
