Have you discovered San-J soy sauces? They are gluten-free and they have Teyaki and spicy peanut. You can find them at lots of places like Target and groceries.

Don't know if you have a PF Chang's or a Pei Wei where you live? They are the same company and do a really goo job with gluten-free. Pei Wei is a bit limited but I love the Spicy Shrimp.

Looks like we are having:

Corn bread crust Mexican chicken pizza, jalapeños stuffed with green onions, cream cheese and apple and wrapped in bacon, cantelope and chocolate PB cream cheese candy balls.

Everything turned out delicious!

Ok. This is dumb. You get the idea!

I got the idea. Of course, once you start mixing military time with time zones I'm beyond confused so I probably missed dinner. I suppose that is for the best though since if I skip out of town on my husband's birthday he may never forgive me. :lol:

 

I'm still waiting for a text so he can tell me if I'm making some sort of chicken stir fry or if he's ordering pizza. If he does, I picked up some frozen pizzas and Costco this week for a really good price that I'll try. Pizza is his favorite food ever so it'll probably be the pizza. We have plans to celebrate on Wednesday with a trip up to the city.

I love me some roasted veggies. Nothing makes them quite so perfectly yummy as roasting. :wub:

 

Just got a text, looks like its pizza for dinner. I am not surprised. I already cooked the rice, which is good because it fries better the next day so it'll be better this way. I guess I need to go preheat the oven so I can cook my pizza. His will either be Pizza Hut or this really awesome local joint that also makes something called garlic knots that are (or well used to be...) to die for. Whatever. Pizza and Grey's Anatomy coming right up. :D

I've been thinking about making a cake. I don't really need a cake, but it sure sounds like a good idea. :D

 

Tonight we're having a peppercorn pork loin with stir fried rice and some sort of veggie. I suppose since my husband has some sort of almost religious conviction against veggies and doesn't like stir fried rice that I may just make him garlic potatoes.

Ski finally checkin in-- been MIA literally :(

 

Thanks everyone for the love :wub: ....trying really hard to get over this latest flare from hell and know better than to hope docs will ever figure out why this keeps happening to me -- thankful that I had a good 10 months without major flare -- so here's hoping I'm at the end of this sucky-ness!

 

Have cooked nothing for weeks...hubs has taken care of the men while we tried to find food I could tolerate.  For now I'm sticking with green smoothies, tea, soup and small amounts of meat/vegies....boring, but seems to be helping as I have some brain power back.  

 

I've been following the thread at times, but honestly my brain didn't process much of it.

 

Addie - sorry you were in pain!!!  Glad you are feeling better

 

Colleen - Great to see you...I'm jealous of popcorn for dinner...used to do that every so often back in the day and I miss POPCORN ;)

 

Irish -- can't believe your move moved along while I was froggy -- can't wait to talk more.

 

Marylyn - think I read you were tested and don't have diabetes -- great :)

 

Can't remember much else that I missed...so on to tomorrow -- hopefully another good day!

I made them all with the Pb so I doubled the Pb. I made them with the melon baller but I let the bottom be flat so they don't roll around. Next time I would make the balls and put them on a tray and freeze before adding the melted chocolate. They are soft at fridge temp so it was hard to dip them. I ended up just putting a spoonful of the melted choc on top and pushing it down the sides.
