Last night hubs made crockpot whole chicken legs with garlic, onions, sultanas (O..K., yellow raisins), ginger, dried apricots. cranberries, chicken stock and a 'mystery' ingredient which I failed to detect. I know it wasn't citrus, because it couldn't be :o but maybe a dash of some spirits? Darned good, anyway.

Wouldn't that be something? Maybe they'll have to come to our house for peka one day...

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.

I have tried the epidurals and they have not helped unfortunately. I think it is partially because my pain is so widespread - my shoulders all the way down my calves. There are so many trigger points that it's not even funny. The pain is so bad I must get up to walk around at night because lying down can be dreadful. I'm glad that they help you, though. They are supposed to have quite a high success rate.

Coconut flour is wonderful. I use it regularly in so many ways. Be sure to try it and post your results! :) I really, really hope that your DH goes away once and for all.

We are having leftover roast lamb shoulder from last night. It is so succulent and tender like butter. And the shoulder is one of the toughest cuts. I am making a caper lemon sauce for it. We will have it with roasted carrot and potato puree and white wine braised Brussels sprouts.

As we STILL have lamb leftover I am making Shepherd's Pie which traditionally is made with lamb. I will mince it up and make a lovely old cheddar potato "crust".

Winter greens (frisee, mustard, kale) with a simple classic red wine vinaigrette and shaved Parmesan.

It's always good to reward yourself for using up leftovers. :D

I like your thought process! Hmmm...what will I reward myself with tomorrow when I leftovers? I've always loved leftovers but now even more so that we are entitled to rewards. :P

Lucia, you will be proud of me! Vegetarian.

Singapore Carrot Cake with Steamed Daikon Cake - I am making my own kecap manis.

Carrot cakes do not contain carrots nor are they cakes as in sweet cakes. They are dense daikon cakes you make then steam then sit overnight then fry. Then you make the other portion of the recipe which contains a host of other ingredients including eggs and veg but not carrots.

We had grilled Italian sausage, rice, and swiss chard sauted in garlic and olive oil. It kills me how you think you'll have way to much of the greens, and it ends up being a little bit. Conversation over dinner. Me: "I notice you don't seem to like the Chard." Him. "No, I don't like it."

Me: "Try to think of it like a condiment. Him: "OK". Him: "I don't give a shred about the Chard, even when I try to think about it like a condiment."

(No chocolate for him tonight, he could have played along.) B)

Had some dental work done that's going to keep me on a liquid diet for a day or two. I have some boxed soup or another in my pantry but was feeling good enough (ty painkillers) to make creamy carrot soup which is absolutely divine. It doesn't look appealing, sort of looks like a bowl full of orange vomit but it's so very good. I think I may make more tomorrow but add ginger to it instead of onions.

Everything sounds wonderful. Does the Braised Lamb Shanks use any tomato products?

Dinner tonight is cooking in the crockpot. It's a chicken stew using boneless chicken thighs, mushrooms, red potatoes, sweet potato, onions, carrots, celery, chicken stock seasoned with fresh rosemary, salt&pepper.

I am proud :) I looked up a recipe online for Singapore Carrot Cake, and it looks totally doable.

I'm having quinoa with roasted vegetables (sweet potatoes, green pepper, tomato, eggplant, onion) - easy and good for an early Sunday supper. Also, it's vegan, no lactose. Note that quinoa has protein so it's actually quite a filling meal.

It IS doable and very interesting to make, not to mention wonderfully delicious.

Supper sounds great at your house! I am unfortunately in too much pain to cook this evening which saddens me. My husband will have to throw something quick together. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. :)
