Crock Pots are won-der-ful -- have no idea how we would have made it thru little league years without that thing -- and then Karen suggested getting the small one for traveling -- brilliant :)

"C" is for cookie

that's good enough for me

 

"Cookie Monster" is also my favorite sesame street character -- well aside from "Oscar"

My crockpot thinger comes in handy the odd time but not for true braising. It does free up another burner! When I use my thinger I feel as though I am cheating.

The macarons do look sorta good, do they not?

I don't mind painting, I highly dislike removing old 70's wallpaper though. The paper comes off, but the glue underneath... <_<

Mac and cheese for me. B)

Hi Shadow!

How are you - never heard after your fall.

Mac and Cheese works - seems to be a theme this week ;)

Another one having mac n cheese tonight. My 3 year old hasn't wanted to eat much of anything for the past 3 days and she asked for bunny mac n cheese (Annies) and buffalo chicken so I'm hoping that she will eat at least something.

When I was little, I didn't like much of anything (or would eat the same thing over and over again)

I ate PB and strawberry J sammies for lunch for 3 years straight, or so my Mom claims. 

 

Actually, Grover is my favorite muppet (Oscar is runner-up) 

 

Hey hey hey... Knock it off with all the mac of cheese chatter , please. Some of us can't have aged cheese right now. 

 

crying-girl.gif

 

yeah, yeah I know

 

"Go to Lowe's, buy some wood, build a bridge and get over it". Heard that one from Addy this week for the first time ( which is amazing considering I am old and thought I'd heard it all) and it made me "coffee snort " (as Ski says)

 

Armenian pizza tonight (what the heck is that? you ask) well, it's a savory pizza made with ground lamb, peppers,onions, tom paste  and herbs and I sub in the herbed Chebe dough for the flat bread my Gramma used to make. Works out fine.

 

And because we have had a sucky week, we deserve a treat so, vanilla and coffee ice cream for dessert. It's Sunday, after all!

Hey, that is what I looked like all weekend! I also need to take my own advice. I am currently (don't kill me) waiting for a huge dish of mac & cheese to come out of the oven. After I polish off the whole thing in about 2 days, I will follow that advice or at least attempt to. *sigh* Can I just say that life without cheese sucks? Someone may need to drag me to Lowe's kicking and screaming. :lol:

 

I also love Grover. I actually have a copy of The Monster at the End of the Book on my shelf. And no, I am not too old to read it just for fun by myself. :P

Addy, for temporary relief of the canker sores you're dealing with right now,

you might try some zinc lozenges. On the rare occasion I get one I hold the

zinc lozenge in my mouth right over the canker sore, two-three times a day.

Usually clears up in less than 48 hours. I've also found that 'normal people'

toothpaste sets off canker sores for me, so now I use Dr Bronner's minty

soap, one drop at a time from a dropper, to brush my teeth. Sounds weird,

but if it keeps me from getting those HORRENDOUS canker sores I'll keep

it up!!!

I forgot to mention, the zinc drop thing (I use the Zand brand) also totally

numbs the canker sore. It doesn't hurt to have the lozenge on it, it makes

it feel better almost right away and leaves it numb for a good half hour.

Zand makes an elderberry zinc lozenge, they're like little hard candies,

only good stuff in them, gluten free, and they're mighty tasty too!

Elderberry? Now you have my attention! My husband was at work all day and I am, quite frankly, high as a kite on lortab, so there was no going to the store for anything. No matter how medically relevant. I'm lucky I can walk to the kitchen. I will attempt to find some in the morning though when the drug store opens. Zinc has an interaction warning with my antibiotic though, so I have to limit its use probably. At least it is only a 3 day antibiotic. When it rains it pours I guess.

Do I need to remind you that you should take PRObiotics after this round of antibiotics, young lassie ? No, I didn't think so; you're no dummy.

 I can loan you an umbrella, Calamity Jane  (that was my nickname, but I am giving it to you) ;)

 

 

Dinner tonight will be burgers and sweet potato fries and if anyone wants to help us throw stuff into a dumpster,

c'mon over!

 

 

 

 

Look everyone! there goes SkiLisa taking some things to her Mom.

Hey! I haven't put anything in my eye for like... 3 days! Or done anything else stupid.

 

Tonight I am roasting my tomatoes to make sauce for pizza tomorrow. Since I can eat whatever I want whenever I want tomorrow. I also have roasted anaheim peppers and I'll roast some mushrooms. My husband doesn't eat tomatoes and I needed to use them up. Plus I have one last pizza crust in my freezer to use. Come hell or high water, I'll find a way to manage solid food tomorrow.

 

Dinner tonight for me is honeydew. I'm just not more ambitious than that.

 

Painting could have gotten me, cleaning up not so much. :P

ok...done laughing and this is quite close to how i feel lately -- the men are calling me the bag lady --- because i'm constantly dragging gear in and out of the house -- none of it containing the all important item in this house --- FOOD  :P

 

Mondays are very long == so I am sitting in my comfy chair whilst hubby makes noise in the kitchen -- dinner will either be meatloaf or ribs -- think i heard breadcrumbs being made in the blender so my guess is meatloaf :)

Hi Dee Ho Good Neighbors....

 

Today was pretty darn good -- visited Mom early and did her PT with her until we can line up the professionals -- walked out her new front door to check out the neighbors gardens and then when home to begin procrastination of study -- second Biology Midterm -- how can you have two Midterms????  Should be Test #1, Test #2 and Final IMO....while procrastinating I accomplished quite a bit of cleaning and straightening of my patio -- cousin and her daughter arrive tomorrow for a few days and will be very nice to eat dinner out there.

 

Also added soil ammendment to my shopping bag heirloom tomatoes -- sadly my big plan for my vegie garden has taken a back burner to taking care of folks -- but I did purchase three heirloom seedlings a few weeks back and they now have oodles of little tiny tomatoes -- threw them in the shopping bag upside down growing method to get them planted quickly.  They are hanging happily in the sun on the patio.

 

Dinner tonight is pork country ribs with mac and cheese -- yep non-vegie sister thinks she can make it over today --- it will be wonderful to have her.

 

What is everyone having for dinner this evening???

holy crap!  am I sore. :blink: We started filling the dumpster today with our old beat up furniture and dusty old stuff that was in the
garage (3rd bay is devoted to all things CRAP  ). I tossed so many things that we're never going to use
(and it is not even worthy of the Salvation Army--that stuff has been put aside) 

There was so much wood the hubs had stockpiled for god knows what (building a freakin ark, dude?)
and all his junk in the garage and basement--I mean billions of nuts, bolts, all his bottles for making beer, etc. Tools out the ying yang.

OMG my husband is a certified hoarder.  I could not stop laughing at it all. He says he feels silly now to have saved some of it.

,,,cuz, everyone needs a coffee mug from every city you've been in for work and pleasure, right? er, NO!
Still have 1/3 of the thing left to fill and it will take another day or so. ugh.
I just keep saying "Soon, it will be over and it's one step closer to being where I want to be".

 

Dinner (and he's lucky I could do anything after all that) was:

 

Baked chicken

baked potato

corn.

 

simple. If I can lift my arm now to eat it, I'll be all set. :D

mondays and tuesdays i can usually count on eating alone so i get to 'play with my food' - last night was (rice) flour wrap with turkey, cheddar with peach salsa.  it was yums, so it will move on to round 2 where husband will be the guinea pig taster.  (round 4 is church lunch.  they can all have the cheap 'regular' tortillas :)

 

i have a 'flat-iron steak' marinating in some asian bbq marinade.  i got it pre-made, on sale and it has smoke flavoring in it - says GLUTENFREE all over the packaging and checked ingredients, but...............  i think my recipe is better :D  we'll see what the guinea pig says.  probly make some noodles - oh, and (lisa?) weren't you on a squash ribbon kick?  oh.  my.  BOB i did some zucchini with a vegetable peeler, and some red onion, too, and tossed them in a honey-mustard vinegarette oh, so good!!!  we woofed that stuff down!!!

    • Long ignored and dismissed as unscientific and crude, are intestinal worms destined to be the future of autoimmune disease treatments? Hookworms. Intestinal parasites. They sound gross. The thought of having one's gut infected with a parasitic worm generally makes people's skin crawl. Indeed, intestinal worms, like hookworm, have a bad reputation among health experts, and have been the subject of fierce public health campaigns seeking their eradication. However, researchers have also documented the gut healing abilities of parasites like hookworm. View the full article
    • well, we're in sort of similar positions but can l ask what made you go gluten-free 3 years ago?   You've kept the diet for quite some time so where the health problems serious? at the time was seeking testing not an option? For myself, l absolutely tried everything to gain weight after losing January 2017. By April/May l started wondering how on earth l could be eating : regular meals, Boost shakes, fast food and sodas and candy all day, pretty much daily and still be losing. Some of these meals at home were pasta packed which, at the time l really thought goulash and cans of chef Boyardeee would help me gain     And years of headaches, brain fog that l didnt know what to attribute to but never suspected celiac until the weight loss, and legs and feet that hurt constantly (l didnt really know this could be due to gluten but it relived after being gluten free).   l am only about 2 months in, l did take a really basic TTG ia test after getting a response that my GI would test ''at some point'' and not being clear when that was, and very tired of being 97 pounds and scared of losing more!   so l now also have to wait to be tested more extensively, but l have gained some weight  and gave noticed some changes.    Did you have any improvements after going gluten free? If the test l did take had just been a clear ''no'', l dont  know how motivated l would have been to do this. It wasn't a clear yes, either, but designed like a drug or pregnancy test so the weak red line  does signify at least some sensitivity.   Typically the longer you wait, if in fact you are sensitive or even have celiac disease, the harder the challenge may be so l can understand the anxiety. l am planning for about 6 months. l could not handle going back on a gluten containing diet with my current job as well, and especially not during holiday retail season!   l would start very slowly. Is your new job going to be stressful? You might want to get a feel for the environment first and how you're going to deal with it on days when you might be feeling like utter crap >.> A headache that feels like a band around the back of my head and eye pressure was something l dealt with on my bad days before being gluten-free. It's not easy to function and when l did, l wasnt a nice person or very efficient.   You can start slowly, and please font be too concerned about fitting all of your challenge into six weeks, IMO. l wouldnt think of it as just a short term binge. Yes, you want to get it over with, but if you really fall apart and dont think you can even consume gluten daily, maybe try to do what you are able to do and if the time period gets stretched to 8 weeks or maybe more don't panic.   it should be difficult at first and even a shock to your system, but  even though you will likely not feel well the entire time you're challenging to retest, maybe by a few weeks in the symptoms will be slightly less severe and you can find ways to ease them. Any meds that you have taken like nsaids, a steroid, even Flonase helped me but l really dislike the side effects.   If the process in general with doctors and asking about this also gives you anxiety l would really recommend the walkinlabs recommended here. After 6-8 weeks, order (around 300 so plan for it financially). That will be your answer, make sure you have truly waited enough time to be properly tested and order the most extensive tests.    It's not something you want to have to repeat but l know l am not looking forward to it either! You will have your answer though, which, even if negative will be satisfying.
    • I can not add anything else, but I hope you feel better fast!    
    • Welcome!  I am so sorry that you are dealing with this.  With all your testing was active celiac disease ruled out?  Did they check for UC or Crohn's?  Flies?  I am on the West Coast.  The wind is usually too steady for any insect to hang around at the beach, but I recall getting attacked by them while visiting Mt.  Vernon.   Thank you for taking the time to share with us.  I am sure you can help someone else with PG.  You might enjoy hanging around with a group of people who have celiac disease like you!  😊 I wish you well!
