I've been getting more and more adventurous lately and I think I almost enjoy cooking.

Awesome! Love to hear it. It opens up a whole new world, doesn't it?

I will be having leftovers from last night. Now I am planning a WOW dinner for Friday night as it is my birthday and I would rather cook than eat out. Not that there are any safe places for me to eat at within a 3-hour radius, anyway, but still. The protein will be rack of lamb. We just got half a local free range spring lamb done up for us so we have lots of yumminess to look forward to!

Hi Lucia, I live in south Florida. This is the first year I've tried growing papayas, so I'm pretty excited.

Marilyn - Congratulations on your success with the papaya trees!

We're having:

-chickpeas cooked Indian truckstop style (according to Madhur Jaffrey, and I know exactly what she means too having traveled around India! Mmmm...)

-braised gingery swiss chard

-brown rice

-mango pickle

Truly vegan tonight. No meat, dairy, nuts, eggs, soy and, of course, no gluten.

I was inspired by the discussion about all the different kinds of rice on another thread to make Thai sticky rice.

-Thai sticky rice

-wilted spinach with peanut sauce

-slivered green cabbage, red pepper, mango, banana & scallion salad with a chili garlic dressing

Vegan!

I would be happy to. I will be home late afternoon (to cook my birthday dinner!) but will post it tomorrow. It is really very good. Have you had the rice cakes before? They are about 1/4" thick, maybe a touch thicker, and round like cutting off a log. They are one of my favourite new things. They are very chewy as they are thick but so interesting.

Happy Birthday Love2travel!

Enjoy your day. You share birthday with my uncle. He turns 58. today.

Last time I cooked was over the last weekend. On Saturday I made stuffed cabbage, stuffed pepper, vegetarian stuffed pepper, and 4 types of potato noodles (from raw potatoes): gluten-free with farmer cheese, gluten-free with cabbage, regular with cheese and regular with cabbage. I forgot one meal: gluten pasta with farmer cheese for my son. On Sunday I made fried chicken dipped in egg batter, mashed potatoes and peaches. I also baked a very delicious cake. But I got sick on Tuesday with stomach flu, so didn't get to enjoy much from it. Today I feel finally better, but it's that time of month again. :(

Today I had just bowl of plain white rice for breakfast, 1/2 banana and slice of plain Udi's bread for lunch. I need to cook something today, but I have no idea what. It must be quick and easy on stomach.

Thank you, Simona. Make sure to save a piece of your uncle's birthday cake for me!

Oh, so sad you were sick and now...uh...that. I get so sick then, too, with such bad cramps and stuff.

You probably don't want to hear this but tomorrow I am making a delicious birthday cake for myself - three layers of moist white cake with a toasted coconut buttercream filling. I am going to use coconut milk as the liquid in the cake as well.

Hope you feel better very quickly!

love2travel, I'm so sorry I missed your birthday yesterday. But happy birthday wishes anyway even if they are a day late. You still have that cake right? Sounds so yummy! Please send me a big, huge chunk --- yes, chunk, not a slice.laugh.gif

I can't help but wonder why your screen name is love2travel when it seems you love nothing more than to cook! Half the time I read your menus & I have NO earthly idea what some of these things are. One day I will learn. When my dh goes away & I can have iodine instead of reading recipes & having to nix them time after time because of iodine content in the ingredients. One day......

Oh, how sweet you are! Truly. Thank you - it was a lovely day with a great dinner. It so happens that we do have a big chunk of cake left with your name on it! How shall I send it? Collect? Fax? :lol:

Cooking is one of my several passions but it is tiptop of the list. I do love to travel as well - in six itty bitty weeks we leave for our house in Croatia. Maybe my screen name should be love2travel&cook&eat&read! :P

Oh, I hope you can have iodine very soon. That would be very hard. Is your DH constant? I had it once a few years ago pre diagnosis and I just assumed it was a horrible rash from my new massage therapist's oils. Ummm...no. <_< It was all over my thighs and went away in about three months. I have been very fortunate not to have had it ever since and am very grateful.

My chronic pain is so bad most days that I cook my heart out to help keep me sane and to take my mind off it. It's just quite nice that my husband and I get to reap the rewards! :)

I prepared an entree I found on Pinterest.

A salmon steak topped with crushed pistachios, brown sugar, lemon juice and dill weed.

Bake at 400 degrees for a few minutes. I served it over rice and a side of fresh asparagus.

Very yummy and super duper easy!

Well, you can just shove that chunk o' cake straight through the computer screen!laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif

Have fun in Croatia. There are worse things than cooking, traveling, eating & reading.cool.gif

My dh lays down very well when I limit the iodine but I keep slipping up on that. And the dh is miserable & everywhere when I misstep on the iodine. For instance, I had just healed all up & then I decided to get some coconut oil for it's beneficial factors as well as a butter substitute. And I got some See's gluten-free chocolates. I'm positive there is no cc going on. I began to break out all over & went looking for the cause. After some research I found coconuts are high in iodine & chocolate is too. So I've done myself in again. And I have some coconut flour sitting here waiting for me to try ---- not NOW. It may go bad before I can try it. These things were not listed on the thyca diet. I found them elsewhere along with summer squash which I love but that's out now too.

I have DDD also. Have you tried the epidurals? They help me immensely.

And from what I read on here I have hopes that with time on the gluten-free diet you will find much relief from your pains (all of them). So many tell of their pains getting so much better. I hope it will be the case for you also.

Oh, yum! Yours certainly was healthier than mine. ;)

By the way, is there any way to join Pinterest without going through FB? I do not have an account nor do I want one but Pinterest looks, well, interesting! :)
