I think it's the teeth.

Yes! That's what it is. He looks almost too pleased with himself. When I got up at 5:35 this morning I did not feel that enthused. <_<

Tonight's dinner is Guatemalan Red Chicken Pepián. It is an involved recipe, covering two large pages of small print in my cookbook but it looks sublime and I love that sort of thing. As you know, I make nearly all my own condiments and things from scratch. This recipe involves making a wondrous Pepián blend which includes hard-to-get spices, green pumpkinseeds, sesame seeds, etc. and making annatto oil. Then you roast dried chiles, reconstitute, blend, fry with the spice blend. Oh, yes. While this is going on you poach the chicken so it is nice and tender. I am using peppercorns, juniper berries, a touch of demerara sugar and so on in my poaching liquid. Then you finish the sauce and ladle over the chicken, sort of akin to a mole sauce. As it the flavour is so intense I'll serve it with bay leaf-infused rice. Unsure of the side at the moment. Something light. Now this is my kind of cooking. ^_^

That Bravo guy is truly disturbing. Didn't I see him the other day on TV being interviewed from prison?

Trustfall chicken. Yeah, its a real thing. So I got turned on to the website cookingcomically.com via a friend's facebook post. I happened to pick up a whole chicken at the store and just used it instead of legs. For the record, dissecting a whole chicken is not my idea of a good time at 7 in the morning.

That's me right now. zzzzz

NYC was fab. I'm exhausted.... and it was totally worth it to go and revive our anniversary tradition.

I walked for miles, SKI--and I am none the worse for wear. Rockettes, Santa, tons of people--what's not to like? I went in St. Patrick's and said some prayers of thanks that we "came out the other side" of these past crazy 5 years. There's a devotional to St. Anthony--he is the go-to guy for help with lost causes, I am told by my friend who knows these things. So, we had a chat about helping all of us heal and get well entirely and have no more pain. Worth a shot, right?

Dinner at Craft

Wellfleet oysters, arugula salad, duck with huckleberry sauce, potatoes gratin, sauteed chard and pumpkin creme brulee.

...and some ridiculously good booze.

When they brought the menu over, at the top, it said Happy Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. IH

How did they know?

and yes, in retrospect, that overly-enthusiastic clapping guy is a bit much. :unsure:

Sorry, guys... :lol:

Karen, shoot him please.

IH so glad you had a good time,

Nice to have you back x

Thanks so much, MW--I am feeling very grateful for the chance to do "normal things" again. Healing happens.Hang tough. xx

Irish told me to do it!

Actually, it makes you a little frightening, girlfriend.

Now, "leave the gun and take the cannoli."

if you know what movie that's from, you get a free pound of bacon.

Has anyone ever seen this BACON BLOG called THE BACON SHOW?.

Posts a bacon recipe every single day. How cool is this?

Thanks, Ski xxo

As it so happens, I am also making Bacon Jam today!!

I have had that recipe printed off for months and now, it is time.

I am using the slow cooker. Why? because I am lazy.

Later, we will be having

Beef Filets

Roasted sweet potatoes

and some other veggie as yet to be determined.

I still have to bake bread, too--we're out.

    • Poster boy,  I found this article.  I don't know if it's the source of the Patient Celiac's information, but it may have the information you're looking for. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3956379/ There's some evidence that vitamin D deficiency contributes to high blood pressure.   https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/health-conditions/hypertension/ Vitamin D does so many things!  Getting my vitamin D up made me feel so much better!  I supplement every day to ensure I keep my level up about 80.  I don't do dairy and I don't get enough sun, so supplementing is the way to go for me.  And I have been able to get off my high blood pressure medications, but correcting a lot of different things (vitamin and mineral deficiencies) made that possible.  Make sure you check with your doctor before stopping any medications like high blood pressure medications. Hope this helps! Kitty 😸 
    • Did your folate (B9) levels get tested?  Folate deficiency can cause low white blood cells and anemia.  Folate is needed to work with B 12 to make both red and white blood cells.  Here's a couple of articles. http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Anaemia-vitamin-B12-and-folate-deficiency/Pages/Introduction.aspx https://patient.info/doctor/macrocytosis-and-macrocytic-anaemia http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/vitamin-deficiency-anemia/home/ovc-20265306 Hope this helps.        
    • kareng, the thought occurred to me but she noted it might be two weeks before she might could answer back and I thought the forum might have an answer where the research was quicker. I will do that if someone doesn't already know where it is. I didn't put 2+2 together about olmesartan and losartan being the same class of medicine I guess . ... I actually changed to that form from a diuretic because I thought I might be loosing too many electrolytes like Magnesium. who knew I could be making my GI problems worse in the process. posterboy,  
    • Jherm21, I just posted a similar question in another forum topic that might answer some of your questions. I realized now this might be the better thread for the topic but since I was seeking the research on the BP medicine Losartan I posted it there instead. In short NSAIDs as well as some other medicines have been associated with GI issues. Here is a good overview of  the NSAIDs question form the DailyMail. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2610158/Is-ibuprofen-making-sick-Research-suggests-cause-coeliac-disease.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,
    • I suggested a urinalysis to see if you had proteinuria, which is something that can happen with certain rheumatoid conditions. But you say you’ve had two ANAs - assuming those came back normal? I really like the suggestion of a food diary and going low carb, especially as raised glucose consumption can lead to a positive methane breath test. You may have a food allergy and/or are producing a lot of mucus in reaction to something, which can make breathing more difficult esp if you have a deviated septum. I have now jacked my b12 way up and feel better, and I’m also consuming more iron-rich foods. Both of which in general help me feel less run down. You mentioned having very low BP in the middle of the night - have you measured it? What was it, if so?
      I wish I could be of more help. Plumbago
