Soooo... had a great time with the neighbors on Sat. Night. They came for drinks and apps at 4:30  and stayed until 9. Now, those are MY kind of peeps....... lots of laughs.  She's a doll. She brought me a basil plant.

And they both "get celiac" and what gluten free means --we only discussed it briefly. He said "well, there's gluten free food everywhere, but it does not mean it's going to be okay for you to eat, right? it's all  in the prep."  I could have kissed him right then and there. lol

 

I can't tell you how much I LOVE these mediterranean pork burgers. had them last night--again--because they are so moist and flavorful.

I skipped the gremolata and added feta into the burger mix. YUM!

 

make them, peeps! trust me. Grill 'em up, serve them with corn on the cob and potato salad...or last night, I made sweet potato fries with garlic aioli

and for dessert...well, we had.sea salt caramel gelato....Karen and I are on the same page! ;)

made tacos last night.  tonight i may have fried children if the Bicker Brothers don't knock it off   <_<

 

come on, first day of schoooool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   :blink:

Got a couple of sponges and a couple of bathrooms? See where I'm going here? Even if they are 3 and 4, they can have a little water and a sponge and a towel and " clean". Because, if they have time to fight, they must need something to do. Or pick up sticks in the yard, dust the baseboards, etc.

Now, You know what my boys spent their childhoods doing? Lol

my mother used to say "knock it off..! go outside and play!.don't make me come in there or I'll give you something to occupy those hands...." and we all scattered before she even got in the room.

When my girls were little I'd send them to their room. Together. I told them they could come out when they could get along. Usually they were happily playing together in under 5 minutes and forgot they wanted to come out, at least for a little while. :D

 

I'm not sure what's for supper yet. Maybe alfredo. I got a pork tenderloin out yesterday but I don't think it'll be ready to cook until tomorrow.

 

i hear ya, irish - *i* ruled with an iron fist - and they're good when their mother isn't here......

 

Aren't all kids?

We had tofu stir fry with rice noodles for supper. For sauces, we had a couple of San-J selections (Thai peanut and Mongolian Beef Sauces) and Tree of Life wheat free tamari sauce. 

 

I pretty much used whatever seasonal vegetables that I had on hand. It's a great way to use up summer squash and zucchini.

I canned a couple dozen jars of pasta sauce a few weeks back...making these hot nights easy.

Diced up some baked boneless chicken breast to toss in a jar of sauce this morning.

Men will boil some pasta and toss a salad...I'm going with zu-noodles as my farm share basket has some pretty summer squashes.

I forgot I had some hamburger in the fridge. My husband is going to make his own dinner tonight and I think I'll make some spaghetti and meatballs. I slept way too much today and I can't wait to go get tested tomorrow for anemia so I can just get my stupid infusions and get on with my life!

 

I saw some research this evening that showed that if they injected serum antibodies from CRPS patients into mice, the mice got CRPS. This is awesome because it is more evidence that it's an AI condition. Which means they can hopefully research more effective treatments. Yay! :D

That is incredibly interesting to hear!  It is really nice when they make breakthroughs like that, helps to direct research.

Irish!  Hey Irish!  screaming-out-loud-smiley-emoticon.gif

 

 

 

Wanting to ask you and keep forgetting - when you are making crostinis, what are you using for the toast part?

 

 

 

 

 

Does anyone like my unicorn?

Use your inside voice, young lady! ^_^ 

 

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your unicorn, honey...forgot to say that earlier!!

 

I use Against the Grain baguettes. They are in the freezer section. Bring to room temp, slice on a bit of a diagonal to give you a decent hors d'oeurve

size. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, then brush the slices with  EVOO, sprinkle with garlic powder, put under broiler for 1-2 minutes...watch them, so they don't burn. I only do one side and it works great. 

 

Once they cool off, you're good to go.

Just curious.  I have used the Schar and even the Glutino bagel chips.  After having garlic cheese bread at Beau Jos made on Udis baguette - I might try those, too.  We have had the Against the Grain, too.

 

We like to split the loaf, get that flavored cream cheese like Rondel or Alouette, spread it on, wrap in foil and heat it up.  Cutting is a bit messy but sooooo yummy.

 

 

I change my signature every once in a while and always wonder if anyone reads it.   :blink:

And then there is this one of the Celiac unicorn finding out that rainbows over the wheat harvest during a high wind (and really, there is always a high  wind over a wheat field) are not gluten free.

You're so twisted. :P I was looking at your little chubby headed unicorn last night and thinking about how adorable he is. Makes me smile. :D I much prefer the happy purple unicorn to the vomiting rainbows one. My husband is gonna kill me for this... but after Easter when all the baskets were half off they had one with a little chubby alicorn in it. (An alicorn is a unicorn with wings for anyone who didn't know.) Anyway, my husband thought it was adorable so he got it. For himself. It's on his desk with his Blizzard (the game company) stuffed animals.
