Start saving, girl! I will, too!

yo!....LOVE 2!! how long before it snows again, sweetie??

Dinner tonight was:

the "encore" of stuffed peppers (I never say leftovers)

hubs said "delicious-o" and "you can make this again anytime, babe"...

Is he the best "audience" or what?

We have leftovers in my house too. I roasted 2 scallions and 3 chopped mushrooms in olive oil. I cooked NOTTA pasta- rice linguine. 3 minutes before the pasta was done I added 1 cup broccoli, 1 cup spinach and 1/2 cup frozen peas. I took everything out and mixed up with scallions and mushrooms. I added more cold olive oil and sprinkled generously with salt. Now I'm cooking 2 leftover- grilled and sliced chicken breasts in spaghetti sauce. It will cover my son - vegetarian (he can eat it with parmesan cheese) and my husband - meat eater (I will put meat sauce on top of pasta for him). Dinner served!!:) :)

If you start now, you can pick up Sylvia, and then, me in NY and we could be there in a few hours (I KNOW where she is....) ;)

....grabbing bag and keys now..... B)

If you make the effort to come, the least I can do is make dessert with those cherries. Maybe Cherries Jubilee or Cherry Clafoutis would work. See you in two hours! :D

drool :rolleyes:

Oh, what a chore, to HAVE to use up fresh sheep's cheese :rolleyes:

Gawd yes! I could live on the stuff! :D

I have a question for you guys.

I have not ate red meat since 2009. I would like to add it in somehow to give me more dinner options, especially since it seems to be the goldmine when it comes to nutrients.

Any suggestions as to how I should do that? I'd love a taco salad right now made out of something other than turkey meat. Thanks!

I was off of red meat for a long time before I reincorporated it into my diet. (my sensitivities left me with not much else in the line of protein)

I second the idea of ground beef in your recipe instead of ground turkey but start with a lower fat content to start. I found that starting with leaner cuts of red meats helped me digest it easier. Laura's Ground Beef is really good and found at a lot of regular grocery stores.

We had elk tacos...very good and fast. Elk is very lean, I never have to drain or blot and ours never tastes wild like deer does.

Too hot here for heavy food, so......Caesar salad with spiced shrimp, with homemade croutons. Oh, and cheese/garlic biscuits.

And I would love to find Sheep's Cheese. I will keep a look out when we venture to the big city. B)

Tomorrow, dinner out.

Oh, yum. Elk is incredibly delicious, isn't it? As my dad was a big-game hunter, I was practically raised on elk and moose.

I can shovel.

She awakes!!

Holymotherofpearl, Bunz....where you been girl? I surely missed ya! :wub:

and the "shovel" is in reference to?

shoveling ice? snow? elk poo? .....BS??

Dinner tonight:

I made "Pulled pork".

It's all you guys' fault--you made me open the box with the slow cooker in it.

Side note: I have never made this BBQ delight EVER.

But I am expanding my horizons.

(okay, now this pulled pork thing ....is something I have always found to be slightly funny and almost "dirty sounding"...and in any event, I put it on a squishy roll, served Potato salad with dill and cole slaw on the side and hubs loved it :lol: )

Oh my gosh, I love making pulled pork. It is so delightfully yummy! I have a local pizza shop that brews their own root beer in the basement. I use that root beer to cook the pork in and it is just divine. Aren't you glad you opened that box?

This is the last week that I increased my dose of topamax so I'm still adjusting and super tired, which was fine by me. I slept all afternoon with an ice pack on my face, it was wonderful even if it meant I didn't make any plans for supper. We grilled some burgers and deep fried some fries. We've actually be using the deep fryer quite a bit since hubs went gluten free. I'm indulging him while he adjusts. I might even suck up the cost and suggest we actually buy a gluten free pizza next week. :ph34r:

You guys said we couldn't go to Sylvia's unless we shoveled! I assume that mens snow. :)

You can do 'pulled pork' with chicken, too! I ruined some chicken one day, got way too frikkin dry. So I shredded it and put it in a pot with barbecue sauce, worked great!

Sorry I disappeareded, been CRAZY busy!

NO, LOVE2Travel said SYLVIA had to shovel if we went all went up to HER house for dinner---in Canada ----in the winter. Geesh, that was a few months ago--are you on some sort of "tape-delay", honey? I know, you are delirious from the heat.

Glad you're back!xxoo

Yes - we have snow in Canada for 6-7 months. And not just a wee bit, either. So, whomever is willing to shovel, I'll do the cooking! Maybe you can get some decent seat sales. :P

    • Please check the date on post, you just responded and tried talking to a person from 7 years ago. On consideration to the subject Poatoes are a huge flare factor for my UC and cause my blood sugar to sky rocket...I am not even diabetic but for some reason potatoes (hash browns) that I tried a few months ago with some eggs shot it up over 400. not even a control test with table sugar managed that.
    • Have you tried eliminating high glycemic foods? Fruits, added sugars, starchy grains, potatoes. etc? Also adding in slow digesting fibers and fats can prevent insulin spikes, MCT oil is also known to help and protein. Many find consuming nuts and seeds higher in fiber early on in the meal or before a meal can slow down insulin responses and prevent spikes. I always tend to eat a hand full of whole shell pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, cocoa nibs, etc. while fixing my food, this gets me starting to feel fuller sooner, and seems to help in over all down the road. I know I had some references somewhere to these. I know I read somewhere about the antioxidants in in whole shell seeds like pumpkin and hemp also helped the body regulate insulin levels.
    • Dear AWOL Cast Iron Stomach, Your husband is right bread is bad for you. Of course it's more than bread and gluten, until now it was amateur hour trying to self diagnose and tame this "lion". However they let you down. You slipped through the cracks over and over again it is not your fault your not the Dr. You made mistakes and errors acting like a celiac , not knowing for sure you were, and not feeling like you could fully claim to be or reach out for support . Now you know your husband was closer than any Dr. up until now to determine your illness. Now something is in your record, now hopefully you will be dismissed less,respected more, maybe they will realize its an actual condition going on- not all in your head. Will they? Who knows! Do you care? This is now official, now explained, you not only have to give up gluten, but milk, and corn. In fact give up 98% of processed anything. The cluster of lifetime symptoms were not  "just you", "in your head", "you are not a difficult patient", "when the Dr or nurse looks at you like a nut job you don't have to feel the dismissiveness and condescension. It's an illness and nothing to be shameful of  what is shameful is they and their colleagues missed you failed you. In fact being missed for 4 decades is unjust to you. You were missed time and time again from age 5 to 43, decade after decade after decade, symptom after symptom. It's not that you didn't try from the 5 year old begging to go to the Dr, to the 20 going to the hospital again for another bout of gastroenteritis hoping to get an IV, to the thirty year old saying something is wrong why is this happening, to the forty something a restaurant fed me gluten when I asked for gluten-free, I have been gluten free for 3 1/2 years ,  I have more symptoms and pain than before . I felt so good for those gluten-free years- please help me-make it stop. So many things explained it makes you experience a range of emotions. Grateful: Relief and gratefulness someone finally agreed to send you to someone to test you. She saw past the other diagnosis' and the albatross IBS diagnosis. All the ages and stages of symptoms are explained they all fit. Everyone of them! Someone else also has had them. You are not alone. Read the forum-you fit like a glove. Anger: Anger for the way you have been treated by the medical community, family, some ex boyfriends, friends and coworkers. Anger for the length of time you endured this. Hurt: Hurt for the times people said unkind things to you when you were symptomatic or flaring . you are experiencing symptoms that change your body people are rude to congratulate you on a "pregnancy" you didn't announce or ask why you are not slim when you hardly eat. you are not over emotional -  you are suffering from neuro symptoms, you are not making this up for attention Sad & Guilty: Can I work again? Do I want to work again? What kind of work can I do now? Can I find a job and work PT from home? You didn't envision this your husband having to be sole bread winner now what? I am overwhelmed thinking about this-stop? You now have closure and know how and why you lost your first pregnancy. You now know why you were high risk, complications,  with your children in Pregnancy & Delivery that they couldn't be explained back then It explains why in pregnancy you lost weight and why your morning sickness was extreme and seemed to last longer than anyone you knew,  that your Puppp rash was likely misdiagnosed DH It is not your fault none of it. Please forgive yourself for what you did not know. Your children forgive you. Believe them when they say its not your fault. You can cry, but you can no longer blame yourself. You are a good mother just one with an illness your children will learn to accept. Withdrawn: Why are you withdrawing from your husband? Should you ask him if he wants a divorce? Should you push him away? You didn't know before marriage what was happening you knew something autoimmune was brewing shortly after, but nothing showed on tests. Was this unfair to do to him? Doesn't he deserve someone better? Someone well? Now you can't retire and travel the world as society retirement cliché dictates. Can you afford this illness ? How will this financially impact your spouse, your family?. Why did you do this to this poor man? You are so selfish, you wanted marriage and kids, but was this fair to them? Don't your kids deserve a healthier mom? How will this impact them? Oh my gosh are they going to get this too? Will they grow to resent you? Your illness and diet has taken over their lives! Oh gosh no one say hi to me-please. I hate people and I am too sick to pretend and be fake friendly today. I don't want to tell you I am ill. I don't want to talk about this. I have to absorb this. I hate you people for being healthy. Don't tell me I don't look well. I will snap, I don't want to snap, I am irritable ,and don't feel well. Just keep giving off the unapproachable vibe keep them away.  Am I strong enough to do this? Acceptance: Calm down the inflammation, lack of nutrients, and GI damage is messing with your head. Your husband said for better for worse. Your kids have no choice you are their mother and you are a good mom -you have always been, always will be even on your worst day. If they get this they will be ok. You are strong enough to do this you are just ill and most importantly you must remain here in case they get this so you can guide them and be there for them. Got it? Go on the forum you are not alone it will be ok. You will get this lion back in the cage and manage it. It will be ok. If you can't travel in retirement one day you will find other hobbies or things to occupy your time. He's not going to leave you over this. If he does it will be ok. You'll manage-you always do. You have an answer, you knew it was coming, keep reading, learning, seeking support, and one day it will all work out. You will process all this and will be at peace-until then keep going and above all AVOID GLUTEN!    
    • I know for certain gastritis  is one of the main reasons I had the scope. That and my EOE symptoms . If it wasn’t for those I would have never been diagnosed 
    • Sometimes when those chilly winds begin to blow, and the temperatures fall, the days get visibly shorter, what we need and what we want is comfort food. Well, look no further than this simple, easy twist on scalloped potatoes. A little ham and a bit of cheese work wonders to turn that old favorite into a meal all its own. View the full article
