Tonight's dinner:

I've got a Turkey breast on the rotisserie

spaghetti squash

maybe some peas for a change?

I am so proud of you, MW. ;) You never wavered once in your resolve. (you know I had to mix it up a bit when I had to delete the high histamine foods, but you supported me too!) and so, I am very excited for you that you have reached your goal.

You must need a new belt by now (you can only poke so many new holes in it)!

Good on you, girl!! whoohooo!

Do let me know how that cheese tastes!! (I still can't have that ) but I may have a bite of two of vanilla ice cream

I'm using left over chicken that I Roasted yesterday and making chicken fettuccine Alfredo. Another of my favorite. Meals. And I got these garlic and herb bagel crisp things for the side. Then mixed fresh fruit for desert.

Yummers.

Leftover soup. Today is a long school day, so no time to cook. It'll probably be better second day anyway.

Mmm I like 2nd day soups and stews.

Not sure about dinner yet, but nearly had chaos at kids teatime. We had their friends round, and I checked if there was ice cream in the freezer, did a big ' who wants ice creeeeeam?' only then to discover that it was in fact a very nice frozen stew in an old tub. Whoops. Yogurt is good, but not quite the same. Luckily they were all having fun and I got away with it...

Whew...that could have been cause for a kiddie uprising!! I'd have bawled my eyes out if you offered it, then said "sorry, none left".

:mellow: of course, I have put my yogurt in the freezer for a while and had "frozen yogurt"...sort of....

Yeah, it's not pretty when I get all 3 year- old-ish....and, say! buddy 'o mine....technically it's tomorrow when we indulge...so, there's still time!!

Wouldn't your gob drop open if I showed up on your doorstep tomorrow afternoon for teatime. B)

I have no idea what is for supper. At this point I am thinking a single serve bag of lime & salt popcorn and a huge glass of milk. Yesterday was the third day in a row of getting a half foot of snow off my Jeep, then sitting in an uncomfortable chair for something like 7 hours. I am just too beat for food. I guess the good news is that today we have some blue skies with a few puffy white clouds and it is super warm, it was already 35 when I went out for milk at 10 this morning.

Somewhere, deep down inside of me, there is excitement for you two. Maybe after a nap I'll find it. :lol:

Ok...perfect solution for L2T...my best bud is currently residing on a sailboat in the gulf of mexico....here is her latest blog -- oh and today's temp is 80 no humidity.

http://rockysoceanad...a.html?spref=fb

edited to add -- four cabin sailboat with a darn nice kitchen ;)

I'm typing this from the aircraft - I'm almost there! Shucks...it was all a dream. <_< Today was the same as yesterday at -34C and windchill making it -45C. Unless you have not been in -30 temps you have not experienced cold.

Love the sounds of 80F and no humidity and "...darn nice kitchen". Does it have a KA stand mixer? A Vitamix? :lol:

Last night I did dessert for first time in a long time (we don't need it). But our plums are ripe and they are those big meaty red ones, yummy thingers they are. So I did a plum crumble with cinnamon and O.M.G. I can't decide if it is best plain, with Greek yogurt, or with ice cream. :D

I certainly have. When i lived in MT it wasn't that uncommon to get it a few times a winter. I also experienced it a year and a half ago when i was still in the dorms at my school. Long story short, heat went out, then came back on a few hours later, then i heard a pop... ignored it... heard it again. I went to investigate and the sprinkler above my door in the hallway had water leaking out of it. Water flooded into my bath (on the other side of the wall from the hallway) and into the little hallway in my room. Got to clean that mess up myself because there was a bigger break in another one of the dorm buildings (several inches of water). The other "floodies" and i were set up in a hotel room for about 5 days while they cleaned up (and in my case, patched up the cealing in the bathroom and aired it out). Luckily, nothing of mine was damaged and my school decided to cancel all classes that day.

and did i mention i was the only one in my building that got flooded? Uhuh some luck huh? :lol:

This is why we moved to another state finally, so we could just visit cold, and then come home an hour and a half later to where it may frost but seldom snows. :)

It wasn't just the cold, it was the cold, the freezing rain ice storms in November-December that coated everything with a half inch of ice so you had to open every latch and gate with a propane torch, (and you just weren't going anywhere without 4whldr, I warmed my engine up once by building a charcoal fire underneath it to get the engine to start) the tornado warnings, the hail large enough to trash one's car, and the summer humidity with 95º F temps, and the alternate flooding and drought. The crazy neighbors were just the icing on the cake. I was talking about this the other day with the neighbors here, and they asked why does anyone live there, I said the land was pretty. We have really high summer temps here that would probably blow them away if they couldn't adapt, if the fire season and typical rainy winters didn't. I think a nice day is about 95º F in the summer, 80ºF feels chilly, because the temperature drops so dramatically at dusk. We seldom have "spring," it seems to transition immediately from when is winter going to be over, to time to irrigate because it's really hot. March can be a lot colder than January.

I still don't know what is for dinner. It is either leftover home made Indian Butter Chicken and rice, or scrambled eggs and homefries. All I know is that we had better eat some of that fresh pineapple for dessert. :P

My son was at Breckinridge yesterday, enjoying that snow! He doesn't have any classes on Thursdays!

Yeah we got about 2 or 3 inches. Enough to make me go slipping and sliding.

Soup again, the last of it. So heavenly. I'll have to pick up some more shell pasta for it now. It worked wonders! I cooked the pasta in the broth and it was heavenly (ancient harvest). I wouldn't do that with rice pasta though, i'd cook it seperate.

At least it is good for something besides annoying me! I'm hoping that Phil has some good news for us tomorrow morning and tells us that this winter crap is done with.

I've been inching up on my iodine, thinking that my DH outbreak was mostly due to a CC incident. Well last night my husband told me that popcorn isn't a proper dinner and I finally snapped and am testing. I broke down and flat out ate fish. I had a couple "breaded" filets in the freezer and I finally decided to find out if I can eat fish without dire results. Now... I wait.

Tonight, roasted chicken. And um... some sort of vegetable or something like that. Probably potatoes because roasted chickens mean gravy.

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
