Steak, sweet potato (just as well I am not doing a rotation diet too, but note to self...) spring greens, carrots, sprouts, coconut oil.

Is it just me, or does tthe coconut oil have a salty aftertaste?

Not that I notice, hon.It just tastes "coconutty". Is it spoiled? Although that's hard to do--it has a long shelf life.

Tonight we are having:

Lamb Chops that we were going to have last night then my pain went haywire. :angry: So, we are having the lamb that I marinated in a whole schwack of lovely things (including orange juice, juniper berries, gin, fresh thyme and rosemary, garlic) that will have a Dijon sauce brushed on it and then covered in a yummy breadcrumb mixture and broiled.

Along with the lamb will be lentils braised in red wine, et. al. and spicy Japanese daikon and cucumber salad.

well, let's see.....I get the emoticons by googling words like " bacon emoticons" and dancing boy here popped up

and I get my uh ...thingers..... elsewhere ;) he he he

I use "thingers" often at home. I mean the WORD "thingers". That didn't come out right methinks. "Thingers" can mean so many things in so many situations. It is quite...er...interchangeable. ^_^

I loved it ! Compared to some of my long answers on the board, it was just a telegraph. :D

I felt as if I were right there with you shopping. Sounds like fun.

and by the way, only you can use the term " higgledy piggledy" and get away with it.

:huh:( now, if I had said that, Adalaide and/or Karen would have been all over it like a cheap suit.)

Your expeditions are much like our trips to NYC..I like to hit .the wine shops in particular..then, pack up the car and haul it all back home.

Gotta keep our kitchens and pantries stocked!

When I food shop I am in the zone. Sometimes I get tears in my eyes when I see the amazing produce and exotic ingredients that I have only read/dreamed of. Can you imagine you and I taking over NYC? I have not been there but would fly there just for the food. You and I could do some serious damage.

"Higgledy piggledy" and "gobsmacked" are amongst my favourite British words. Here goes...

Higgledy piggledy. Higgledy piggledy. Higgledy piggledy. Higgledy piggledy. Higgledy piggledy.

Onion, garlic, ground beef and fresh tomato chopped. Add Thai fish sauce. You make the egg part in a wok, coating the wok by rolling the wok over the heat to cook the egg until it is very thin, add your meat mixture, fold the egg over to make a square packet and eat with Sirachai sauce. Delicious!

Well, I am gobsmacked at this display of shenanigans from you, young lady. :lol: I can't stop laughing.

The first time I heard a man in Ireland say "shut yer gob" to someone, I nearly fell off the bar stool laughing.

That sounds incredible. I have not made Thai omelettes but you have inspired me to do so. I just told my husband about it and we're going to make some this weekend. Sriracha sauce....mmmmmmmmmm...

(

You said " roommate". Is this a " just helping pay the rent" roommate? Or a sleep in the same bed roommate? Because a sleep in the same bed roommate might be sleeping in his car.

He's the roommate formerly known as boyfriend, significant other for 12 years. Aak! Common law...Aak!

Last night I told him he is just "other" now.

Today he told me I can just call him SUD for Suck Up Danny.

Here's the part that makes me realize that he'll never, ever get it.

He explained that since he knows I can have hamburger, he thought salmon burger would be okay. I questioned him like Perry Mason: "Did you ask the guys at the fish counter if it was gluten-free?" "Did you read the label?" "Do you realize I bought you peepers so you can read the labels?" His answer was "no" on all accounts except the 3rd.

I concluded with that and asked him to please use the scratched non-stick pan I threw away 2 plus years ago for cooking it. (He retrieved it.) Naaaa....he used our grill.

Anyway, back to original topic, I served very spicy Indian Chicken tonight with lots of veggies. SUD doesn't care for spicy food, Indian food or veggies. I cooked the veggies in the sauce. I made his head sweat. I gluten-free curried him!

Over dinner, I inquired if the chicken was better than the salmon burgers or loaf. He said it was. (Maybe a SUD statement.) I asked if it had ever dawned on him that groceriy stores usually use fish or meat they're ready to throw out for loaves and burgers.\\

Maybe I'll stop tormenting him tomorrow.

I am skilled in the art of a$$-kick. Lemme know where and when. ;)

C'mon down. Whoop up on him! Give him a little lesson in Gluten anger.

There's a gluten-free Expo in S. Florida in Feb... 2/17/13, c'mon down. We'll have a whoop up, then go to the festival.

WTF somebody lives in Florida and they come home with, first, salmon,and secondly, glutenoid salmon ? :blink: That takes some special kind of talent. Then they put this stuff on the grill as if heat can make the problemo go adios. Is 2013 the Year of Magical Thinking ? You'd better tell him not to show up next with imitation crab <_< :angry:

I bucked up and grocery shopped today. It can't be blamed on him. He had spaggeti out of a can until he went to college, and doesn't know the difference between an avacado and an artichoke. The rest of his life he survived on BBQ,

I blame it on his evil mother. She never included him in cooking and hated cooking, always went for the quick way out. He grew up on canned spaggeti. No wonder he's not right.

I wonder what he did with all the grease. Thanks for sharing.

I got me one of those! I swear he practically breaks out in a sweat if a vegetable that isn't either lettuce or a fresh, uncooked carrot gets within about 10 feet of his face. He was mostly living on frozen pizzas before he met me. I have vastly expanded his horizons and am slowly working on him. I swear though... omg... he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 9 and suddenly his mom would do anything to get him to eat. That meant catering to his every last food whim. It makes me crazy to think about, so mostly I don't.

I love this thread -- hubby and I call it the "Hen Party" -- my dear MIL had a "Bridge" group for over 40 years that never played bridge -- took me about a decade to figure that out ;)

    • So sorry it is difficult.  There is soy and fish flavoring in everything!   I too have neurological damage from 40 years of gluten.  I can feel your pain.  Do you want me to look for a base contact for you?   I still have a connection at my Okinawa church which is near Camp Foster.
    • I find it amusing I brought this up to point out that discrimination is not something that should happen to those of us with this disease and if handled well we can compromise by bringing our own food where allowed and calling and contacting places prior to going explaining and setting things up. In this way we do not end up feeling out of place and can try to live a more normal life with social interactions and gatherings if all is handled well. I am unsure if this goal was met or blown out of the water . One point I think this applies also and has for me so far it seems, is theme parks. Places like Six Flags where your stuck in their grounds, and they can not guarantee food safety. I found that with my celiac diagnoses I can talk to them and be allowed to bring my own food into the park. This not only allows me to head out and eat but also saves me a ton of money >.< as expensive as gluten-free food is theme park food is like another 3x that. They just put a medical sticker on my cooler and I store it in a locker in the park and go back to it for snacks and food. Odd thing from years past.....I have a life time member ship to Six Flags, But I can not go unless someone else is with me for when I get anemic, or sick so I go once a year if even that (not gone this year or last year). My other option is to book a hotel near by or sleep in my car. (I get deathly tired at night and pass out around 9pm). There is also the lines I have to buy a flash pass to skip the lines, or I have panic attacks being unable to move for hours waiting for a ride.  
    • I lived in Okinawa for 4 years prior to diagnosis.  My son however tried to go gluten free during that time.  His school had no idea what I was trying to say and could do nothing for him.  Everyone eats school lunch. Period.  It was difficult.  If I went back I would eat the percooked hard boiled eggs from Lawson's or your nearest convenient store.  You may feel more comfortable rinsing them before eating them.  I would also eat the plain rice onigri.  If you know the contents of the mayo you could eat mayo/fish onigri. Stay away from the ones that use soy sauce.  Maybe look at tins of fish while you are there to see if they contain soy sauce. The other idea is to connect you with someone on a base.  They have great American grocery stores with lots of options and American doctors and hospital.  They deal with American insurance companies.  I looked into that for my father in law who came to visit while terminal.  He had postal insurance and was 100% covered in Okinawa on base.  Do you have military connections there?   Camp Foster or Kadena grocery stores are the big ones with the best selection.  The others may be too small for your needs.
    • Sounded like it's against the law in that state to bring in outside food to any restaurant. A simple phone call to the tavern would have told them that. Prior planning is exactly what was needed here. We don't have the right to break laws, and outside of school and jail, (with the correct paperwork),  we don't have the right to have gluten-free food everywhere we go. I'm shaking my head at the parents and how they dropped the ball here.
