Tonight its not very exciting lol. Leftover chicken and bag of frozen veggies. I usually am very experimental and weird with what I cook: I will eat anything as long as its healthy and gluten-free.

Dinner doesn't have to be exciting. Our salads are just converted from the sandwiches my husband used to love and got addicted to during his short stint at Blimpie. I'm not even cooking chicken, we're going to use the leftover Costco chicken. I suppose I still have to cook though if I want my mac & cheese. OMG though... I got stuck in this stupid thing that is taking forever and haven't been able to get away to eat yet.

Last week I had a few overripe bananas from my basket so I decided to make banana bread. (This was after my trial and discovering I can in fact eat bananas. YAY!!!) My first try was tasty, but didn't turn out as.... bread. My second attempt I used the minimum amount of bananas called for, added a little xanthum gum. I was going to look up how much to use for the amount of flour but then was in the kitchen and ready to add it and just went with 1/2 tsp. I also threw in a little cinnamon for good measure. It came out perfect! Isn't really a dinner thing, but it has been our dessert for two nights. This is the recipe I used, I only make half at a time though. http://www.musingsofahousewife.com/2011/11/best-ever-gluten-free-banana-bread.html

I'll be busy tonight when my husband gets home from work. So I'll have a salad ready for him and a burger ready for him to grill and he'll be all set. I suppose if he wants something more he can nuke a "baked" potato and put some bacon and ranch on it or something. I'll have the same thing, just much later after I get off the phone. And we'll follow up with a late snack/dessert of more banana bread. :D

Something soft and squishy as I had a LONG dental appointment today.  :(  So, I had Eggs Benedict and fresh blackberries.  Tomorrow will be a vastly different story.   :)

That sounds like a perfectly splendid dinner after a day at the dentist.

Dinner is salmon tonight, cooked yesterday.

I managed to get myself a great whack on the head Wednesday, quick er trip. Not too bad, cut and big bruise, and some shock. So I had a sweet tea, bit of chocolate. That started up the sugar addiction thing. I had a bit more chocolate, 2 small merrangues (sp!!) and now I am wiped out and have D. Taken immodium, so who knows what happens next.

Looks like no desserts here for a good while.

Very excited about certain people looking at new constructions....

OUCH!! I hate those noggin whacks. Are you okay?? Did you look like this when it happened? :wacko: Poor babe.

I have hit my head more times than I should admit. Open cabinets doors left open, misjudging the height/depth of something, that sort of thing.

I blame gluten head. It has not happened in a while (I said that and then, spit for good luck as surely it will happen now)

Hope you feel better soon.xx

 

We're having good old burgers tonight. Fresh corn. (yes, corn is A-OKAY for me! ) and that's it.

Too many carbs, not enough weight loss going on. I know, it's vacation, but I have been very, very naughty. :lol: waddle, waddle....

Awww, you're poor noggin! Hope you feel better soon. Last time I did that I had been horsing around with my husband in bed, like good old fashioned horseplay like 8 year olds indulge in. Then WHAM! my head and the headboard had a meeting and I saw stars and blacked out for a second. Try explaining that to the ER staff and getting them to believe it wasn't something naughty.  :P Hopefully you at least had a good story for the ER staff!

 

No one will give second thought to a muumuu in Florida. Bring on the desserts! Also, make friends with ducks and people will take less notice of your waddle. 

 

I forgot I was working this afternoon and didn't make dinner plans so I have no idea what we're eating. My husband wasn't scheduled today but got a text last night asking him to go in today, which is generally awesome for the money. Not so awesome for pawning dinner off on him. There is some pepperoni in the fridge, maybe pizzadillas? And I have a little cauliflower left that I could turn into buffalo cauliflower. It would almost be like having a vegetable. I'm still too scared for broccoli  I'm just going to carve it up and freeze it tonight. Everything dark green scares me since spinach is what set me off.  :ph34r: Maybe I should just feed it to my bunny.

:lol:

 

Thanks Addie!!!  Irish waddling with ducks in a muumuu....I may need to waddle on down there and join in the fun.  Corn!!! Wahoo IH - me too :)  I ate popcorn this morning with butter - OMGoodness - I have missed popped corn!  So far so good.

 

So yesterday was good and bad but very long.  Mom is finally settled back home after 38 days in the hospital -- I know she is glad...but heck I am too - have been wearing a groove in the road between my house and the hospital lately.  Was pooped when I finally got home after getting them all situated -- hubby made a lovely meal and then stepped in it -- the DA - turned down VIP seats at the California Speedway for Sunday  :o  :blink:  :wacko: I took a sip o' zin and says -- ah honey - why would you turn down those tixs?  He says -- been there done that -- ok we did indeed live infield for 5 or 6 seasons when the speedway first opened -- highlight was our second to last season -- we cut the sample PIT/GARAGE passes off the fencing surrounding the garage area -- threw them over our regular infield credentials and sat on the pit wall for the entire race -- it was Jimmy Johnson's very first win as a cup driver -- in victory lane -- hubby shouts out to Jimmy as he's doing the hat dance (pics with hat of each sponsor) "Hey Jimmy - how about one for your fans!" and Jimmy tossed the hat straight to hubs -- awesome day.   Sorry for rambling back story -- so last night he says been there - done that and I was  :blink: -- we have never been in the VIP lounge for a race -- if you haven't guessed by now I had more fun talking with drivers, crew chiefs and pit crews than he did -- how can you turn down a free luxury box -- I love my honey and he is the best -- but today he is firmly planted in the DA catagory  :wacko: - tomorrow he'll be back in the wonderful hubby box  :wub:

 

Oh dinner -- chicken tacos for them  -- chicken and vegies for me.

 

PS...Feel better CMw -- my man and one son seem to feel their way around the world with their heads -- theirs are very hard -- mine not so much - I hit it and it hurts!!!  kick your heals up and watch something funny 'til your head feels good once again.

What kind of..... well I'd call my husband a DA too..... does that?!?!  :blink: I'm practically speechless, and that takes a real feat of monumental dumassery. (Its a word.)

Thanks everyone :)

entirely my own fault, trying to do a job too quickly. When moving shelves, I advise moving the stuff off the top shelf first.

 

This had me laughing. I recently cleaned and rearranged three sets of four shelves and had a near miss due to thinking I could move a shelf down a notch with stuff on it. :ph34r: I'm laughing with you, I swear! (You're laughing right?)

Laughing now :)

Cringing with embarassment at the ER....

Wait, I missed the corn reintroduction woohoo!!

I was going to try it today, but after my sugar and Imodium exploits this week I think I will go for a bit of recovery time first.

Sorry to hear about pork IW :(

An exciting weekend of clearing mould caused by condensation ahead here...

...now, that does sound exciting!  mould clearing...wow....wish I lived closer so I could come and help!

(just teasing --as I know laughter heals boo-boos) ;) Up watching the sunrise and your post made me giggle.xx

 

Going for some type of fish tonight (shellfish for the hubs) --we'll see what's fresh at the ironically named New England Fish Market nearby

and the asparagus looks inviting at the produce stand (probably be roasted)

 

That sweet corn was awesome. Hope it does not bite me on the behind.

It's coming to you, too MW...hang in there!!

 

Have a good weekend, all!

Being a nondrinker, I suppose I must learn to sail and be our designated.... um... sailor? driver? something like that. At least I'll earn my keep.

 

You can make burgers out of gators? OMG! We'll all have matching purses in no time!

Booze Cruise is just a nick name -- all ages and beverage types allowed/required? to join in the relaxing sunset cruises.  

 

PS...I don't think anyone is going to wrestle the wheelhouse away from my honey - except during the fishy trips...but those are in the wee hours of the morning while we are resting up for other fun activities.

    • Hate to tell you but McDonalds French fries are NOT gluten free.  The "natural beef flavoring" contains wheat.  Their hasbrowns are also fried in the same fryers thus making them NOT gluten free.  Lots of Miss information by this poster.  
    • .....you do know the Mc Ds uses wheat in the fries? FRENCH FRIES Ingredients: Potatoes, Vegetable Oil (Canola Oil, Corn Oil, Soybean Oil, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Natural Beef Flavor [Wheat and Milk Derivatives]*), Dextrose, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate (Maintain Color), Salt. *Natural beef flavor contains hydrolyzed wheat and hydrolyzed milk as starting ingredients. Contains: WHEAT, MILK. https://www.mcdonalds.com/us/en-us/product/small-french-fries.html

        Being a Hydrolyzed version it might not contain the gluten proteins.....but you said any wheat proteins.
      Side thoughts I would not trust that place, stuff is constantly cross handled and changing gloves between stations does not happen often.
      AVOID fast food restaurants, keep protein pars, prepackaged snacks, etc available in your car and pack meal prep kits.
    • Grew up in a Hispanic half family, and ironically have a bad allergy to corn now....anyway when they get a bit dried out you take 2 large sheet stretch of a paper towel soak, wring it bit then wrap 2-6 tortillas in it put on a plate an zap in the microwave for a bit, this steam cooks them, and if they are dried out a bit from the fridge and falling apart this can make them more pliable. If really dried out wet the tortillas directly.......we never wasted food. PS do not ask for times...I have not eaten them in 5+ years and I break out in a rash from touching corn.
    • Place in a ungreesed non stick pan on med heat and turn after 20 seconds. This is how I cook corn tortillas orig and then reheat as well.
    • It's way too late to help this original poster, but in reading this thread, there's so many things that worry me.... WENDY'S IS THE WORST PLACE TO TRY TO EAT GLUTEN-FREE!!!! They are NOT at all dedicated in ANY way and they are a nightmare to even ask for gluten-free.  I travel A LOT and I can't afford to spend a fortune or tons of time finding gluten-free restaurants that won't make me sick. I eat the Grilled Chicken Sandwich NO SEASONINGS (custom made to order very juicy and delicious - takes 7 minutes to cook and worth the wait) at McDonalds at least twice a week.  I am extremely gluten allergic - extremely sensitive to wheat protein and poisons in our food supply - and allergic to a bunch of other things too (including milk protein - whey, sodium casseinate, and lutein - flax seed, opiates = poppy seeds, and any kinds of grass such as wheat grass, etc).  I order "grilled chicken filet 'a la carte' with no seasonings" and medium french fries. In the mornings, when I can't cook at home, I order 2 round eggs and 1 hash brown.  I NEVER GET SICK AT MCDONALD'S when I order these orders. I search on Celiac.com any time I try to eat out and I rarely end up ordering places because too many people post about getting sick off this or that because so many of us don't know what is making them sick!!!!! People order then think it's got gluten in it when it could be cross- contamination or yeast or milk protein that is making people sick because they aren't aware that with a gluten-allergy undiagnosed for a long time comes a whole long list of these other things we need to watch out for!!!! Sign up for the gluten-free restaurant notification app and use Celiac.com, but ALSO DO YOUR RESEARCH AND GET THE ALLERGY TEST PANEL! If you can afford to pay $500 out of your pocket, get the DNA allergy test.
