We had a lovely piece of lamb today, totally melt in the mouth. Looking forward to encores, if it lasts that long :).

Look forward to trying the spring roll wraps if I get rice back soon...

Just finished rolling up a large pan of enchiladas as I am off to class :D

A lot has changed since I was last a student:

  • e-textbook downloaded to laptop, kindle and cell -- my book bag is very light :wub:
  • rate my professor was fun to look at -- bunch of kids complaining about having to take notes in class -- this dinosaur takes great notes and should be fine!

Yep - lamb encores, with mushroom and tomato, cooked in garlic and coconut milk.

My tastebuds have gone really weird since this elimination diet. I had tuna with stir fried brussell sprouts and anchovies for lunch. Worse than when I was pregnant I think (and before you ask, nooooooo)

I was thinking a different thing on rate my professor, ooops.....

Now, if I had eaten the shrooms, the tomatoes, the tuna and anchovies with you, I would have burst into histamine flames. :blink:

(as much as I love those things, I cannot have them. bummer!)

Dinner tonight was a little egg salad for hubs and absolutely nothing for me. Why, you ask?

Because lunch was roast beef w/ au jus,sweet potatoes and carrots at the gluten-free Cafe near us.... and we simply have no room left.

Very full. Might explode.... :lol:

Gym day 4 and I upped my time on the treadmill, and increased the weight and reps on all 8 machines.

.It must be SkiLisa's inspirational pink and white bike streamers/pompoms she sent me. They're a big hit at the gym.

Here's Ski now!

there's one thing that remains the same...the student who takes great notes always did well in my classes. Dinosaurs like us always do just fine! My oldest student was 78. She was awesome and made me strawberry jam at the end of the semester.

Enjoy the class and have fun! You keep amazing us all with your miraculous rebound and I say "yaaaay, Lisa!"

I managed, on my first attempt, to make a very passable guacamole. I'm so thrilled it doesn't suck. I'm not sure why I spent years doing things like only eating it at Mexican restaurants. It is so easy too, insert avocado and assorted other crap in blender, blend.

So I decided after trying some lentil flour and being okay with it that I would being instituting a meatless Monday. I do not believe that my husband will necessarily survive until the end of Feb intact. :lol: I made a lentil and rice casserole, meh, coulda been better but I can fix that next time. He made all sorts of fun faces trying it and settled on french fries for supper. I also had a super thick crust of Udi's in the freezer that I got out, spread with an insanely thick layer of my guacamole then broiled it with some fresh raw cheddar the dairy store got today. My husband wouldn't even try that. I don't know about him, I think maybe he belongs to some super secret anti-delicious, anti-healthy religion. <_<

I have tried this in the past. This usually ends with a trip for fast food microwaving a frozen pizza. You know, the staples of single men by which they have learned to get by before being civilized by women. I thought he was a lost cause, but then twice this month I have gotten a baked potato into him. I have also won a few small toddler like battles with corn.

Me: how much corn do you want?

Very petulant husband: none! *pout*

Me: then I'll only give you two spoonfuls.

Tonight I am taking a night off from real cooking. Just going to throw some garlic flavored Brazilian cheeseballs in the oven and have penne with the sauce in the freezer. I'm in mourning over my Tuesday night show series finale a week ago. Maybe when I finally go rummage through my closet and get out of the jammies I should wear black today.

By chance was it Private Practice? I was not happy that they ended it with so many more stories to tell.

Yes, and I completely agree!!! My husband has been picking on me for years about how it is hardly more than television appropriate pornography. I can't get him to see past nekkidness to the actually moving and very socially relevant stories. Maybe I'll put the DVD box set on my Santa wishlist.

We're getting snow too. Still coming down and I'm heading out of the house in half an hour. BRRRR!!!! Half a foot on Sunday/Monday and a few more inches today.

My husband never really sat down to watch Private Practice with me, but he says the same thing about Grey's. Actually there aren't a whole lot of shows we can even watch together. I love my Grey's and Supernatural, loved Private Practice and Emily Owens (only 2 episodes of that left though) and I really love Star Trek.

On topic, I think dinner tonight is ginger beef and broccoli.

Well, I am mourning the loss of the very cool show "Fringe" last Friday, but at least the powers that be had the decency to reward the loyal fans of 5 years with a satisfactory ending.

Sorry, guys. :(

Time for something different to break the monotony.

Veal piccata

sauteed chard and baby carrots

We recently had freezing rain. It is such a rare occurrence here in Utah and reminded me of all of the sleet and sneet from back home. I do not miss it. By all means, keep your sneet. Sounds like something straight out of Dr. Seuss book! Although I imagine he would have made it pink, we got the short end of the stick here in the real world.

Oh, and the few inches of snow today? There was half a foot on my Jeep again and it is still comin!!!

Australia tossed it our way because it was burning their little island up. We were fool enough to snag it as it went by, and now it is burning our little island up (literally, for both countries, although Queensland is under water and snorkelling :wacko: ) We are supposed to hit 40 degrees Celsius today. Think I might stay indoors :rolleyes:

Pink sneet indeed!--that would be grand!

Thing 1 and 2 could lend a hand.

To wash it all away from sight.

But feets of snow upon the jeep

requires more--it is too deep!

We need canana boyz with might.

Shovel here and shovel there...

behold! the driveway now is clear!

and Addy chuckled with delight.

I must be going mad you see

to write such frivolousity....

methinks it's time to say goodnight!

    • Feeneyja, This will be a little long but I will  try to be brief as possible. See this discussion thread that talks about how Pellagra is often diagnosed as other disease's today because doctor's rarely recognize it today in a clinical setting. Pellagra's is described as the 3 D's if you don't count the 4th D of death if it goes long enough and is not diagnosed in a timely manner. Dementia (Neurological) Digestive (GI problems), Dermatitis issues (Ezcema, Psorsias, Acne etc.) According to mdguidelines website http://www.mdguidelines.com/pellagra indicates that quoting “The diagnosis of pellagra is straightforward when the classic rash is present but may be elusive if there are only gastrointestinal and/or neurological manifestations.” And why I believe in many cases Pellagra goes undiagnosed today.  Because doctor's have forgotten how it presents. A longer researcher article about the neurological presentations of pellagra mention the many ways a Niacin deficiency can present itself. Here is the link https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ and I will quote some of the neurological/dementia related symptom's of an undiagnosed pellagra patient. "Mental symptoms were wider than dementia, in that depression, fatigue, psychomotor retardation, mania, obsessions, and a whole range of psychoses with auditory and visual hallucinations were well described, along with personality change and sociopathic and drug and alcohol addictive behaviours. Panic disorders were seen as was a general inability to deal with physical or mental stress. Poor brain development such as hydrocephalus or cerebral palsy was also common. Acute delirium or even coma occurred, with some patients having myoclonus and other extrapyramidal signs reminiscent of the spongiform encephalopathies. The dementias of pellagra included features akin to Lewy body, Alzheimer’s, frontotemporal, vascular, and prion diseases. Parkinsonism was also common and a festinant gait was first described in pellagrins. Tremors of various descriptions, including asymmetric rest tremors, were noted and some patients had typical paralysis agitans. Pellagrins had a characteristic expressionless facies, so some signs of parkinsonism were present in most cases. Many features of pellagra closely resemble the nonmotor aspects of PD. The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." It is me again. You can see the neurological symptom's of Pellagra are severe and wide ranging. Taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can alleviate many of these symptom's if your daughter has subclinical pellagra and the doctor's don't know to look for it. I had deep depression for many, many years and I shudder to think now that only a Vitamin could of helped me 30+ years ago and the doctor's didn't know to look for it. Shoot it isn't just Niacin.  All B-Vitamin's help your stress levels.  IF you have stress B-Vitamins can help your stress levels. I take Folic Acid for Blood pressure problems and it keeps my BP with in a normal range. A article on celac.com discussed this topic in detail a few months ago. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html I hope it is helpful.  Good luck on your continued journey. If you have never heard of Pellagra you are not alone. Dr. Heaney discusses why this is so in his online article Pellagra and the 4 D's. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ If you don't have time to read the whole hindawi article I also suggest this shorter but informative blog about why a Niacin deficiency can cause dementia related conditions. https://pellagradisease.wordpress.com/ Then decide for yourself and your daughter's sake to decide whether to take Niacinamide or not to see if it helps the D's symptom's she is experiencing (Digestive, Dementia etc.) The International Journal of Celiac Disease makes note of this in their research that Pellagra could be contributing to symptom's being diagnosed as Celiac disease today instead of a possible (co-morbid) Pellagra that causes the same symptom's. When they discuss how Pellagra and Celiac disease are related (Co-Morbid) in a Celiac diagnosis are surprised to find that in 58% of Celiac's -- can also be diagnosed with Pellagra. See this link http://pubs.sciepub.com/ijcd/3/1/6/ Quoting 3. Pellagra and celiac disease "The two diseases can be connected in two aspects. 58% of pellagra patients were shown to have malabsorption and many had intestinal pathology on biopsies [36, 37]. Alternatively, Pellagra was described in celiac disease [38]. The skin manifestations in pellagra might have some additional etiologies, since multiple nutrient deficiencies are at the origin of the cutaneous manifestations in celiac disease. The following nutritional deficiencies inducing skin rashes, were describe in celiac disease: Zinc, Iron, Vitamin A, E, B12, niacin, folate, selenium and essential fatty acids [39, 40]." If one is being diagnosed incorrectly the other co-morbid conditions can continue to cause Celiac like symptom's. But if the majority of those who have been diagnosed as Celiac could be helped by taking Niacinamide I see no you reason you shouldn't try it. Or at least research it some more. Again good luck on your continued journey. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. Posterboy by the grace of God,

    • Color me confused.  I went to Costco yesterday and there were 2 products there that had GLUTEN FREE plastered on the box but then in the ingredients was a: May contain wheat. How is this possible?  How can they still put gluten-free on the box?  We should be able to trust gluten-free labeling no?? And second question:  How many of you would still buy that item?  I REALLY wanted to buy the Island Way Sorbet for my daughter as it is her FAVE.  But I didn't want to take the risk.  Maybe when she is healthier?  I mean it is SORBET?! LOL So frustrating!
    • JMG I have never laughed so hard! This was the best epic comment I've read! Thankyou so much!  Your all teaching me so much! Love the 'my glass to go' idea!! I will be adopting this... can't believe the mucky glasses we must be drinking from! Shocking!  Im still baffled how so many people don't understand cross contamination i.e. The crumbs on the work surface to cut the lime for your tasty beverage!  Your all amazing Thankyou x
    • Yes!  I never really had GI symptoms, but I did have palpitations and restless leg syndrome from anemia.  These went away within the first month. But myalgia and joint aches aren't better after 1 year.  Waiting to get my antibodies re-tested and see if they're negative.....
