Wow! Nice to be missed. When I am out at the acreage, I bring about 20,906,452 books and read my face off. Just me, Snowflake the cat and Cooper the dog, a stunning log house, trillions of birds and gazillions of trees. Oh, and 452,009,785,478 mosquitoes happily buzzing around my face and prancing around my eyeballs.

I knew you went into the countryside, but I was not sure how husg you'd be gone this time....how's Bingley doing? missing Momma?

 

I love Bolognese...mmmmm

Bingley *is* missing his Mommy but my tender-hearted husband is working from home to bond and take care of him. Or, as my husband says, "gotch and socks with my boy". Guys. Are. Weird. Bingley loves to wrestle. I just don't do it right!

They really are adorable. I am blessed, but so are they to have me! Insert cute laughing emoticon here...

Actually, I missed a mosquito when I was counting. I was too busy drooling over my Bolognese to count properly. At least several drowned in my saliva. That helped a bit.

Does it really even get warm enough for mosquitoes there? :P

 

I just wandered in the door from working all afternoon, evening and night. Screw chicken whatever for dinner. I'm eating that pig because I have about as much energy as a half dead slug and cooking is not on my list of crap to do. Beyond that, I am mentally exhausted. Ugh!

Good Morning Addie!!!

 

Hoping a good night sleep restored you -- that sounded peppy -- lol -- I am not -- long week and this gal is not used to doing so much in the evening -- was in bed by 7pm last night and today is starting creaky -- but will get better -- a little birdie told me more of the dinner crowd is hurting pretty badly today -- let's all get better -- after all it is....

 

Happy Friday!?!?!??  maybe  -- there now I steal more than smileys -- got that 'little' whispering trick from MW :)

Eight am phone calls from clients in panic to wake me up? Yeah, sure, why the hell not? Vet at 11 for sick cat. Dentist at 12:30 for pain. I should have been to the dentist on Wednesday but I blocked off most of the week for this huge project due.

 

Tomorrow is the GIG gluten free fair in Utah, and lucky me it is in my city. I don't think I would have the stamina at this point to bother with it if it were more than half an hour away. I'm supposed to meet up with my best friend at some point tomorrow afternoon after that. Then there is the city carnival to go to tomorrow night too. I wanted to go tonight but my husband is working until 9 and won't get home until they're packing it in for the night.

 

Today I am feeding my husband leftover ham again. I may very well end up with a burger, fries and shake. :ph34r:

Not sure what is for dinner...but know what one item will be on Sunday -- my Dad loves crabcakes -- found this on my FunnyPage this morning -- someone copied and pasted so not sure to whom to give credit....

 

"FOR ALL YOU CRAB CAKE LOVERS!! HERE YA GO!! YES!
MARYLAND CRAB CAKES:

INGREDIENTS:
1 large egg
2½ tablespoons mayonnaise (I like Hellman’s Real)
1½ teaspoons Dijon mustard (I like Maille brand)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup finely diced celery (you’ll need one stalk)
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
1 pound lump crab meat*
½ cup panko (I like the Whole Foods 365 brand for this recipe)
Canola oil

DIRECTIONS:
1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

2. Combine the egg, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire, Old Bay, salt, celery, and parsley in a large bowl and mix well. Add the crab meat (be sure to check the meat for any hard and sharp cartilage) and panko; gently fold mixture together until just combined, being careful not to shred the crab meat. Shape into 6 crab cakes (about ½ cup each) and place on prepared baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

3. Preheat a large nonstick pan to medium heat and coat with canola oil. When oil is hot, place crab cakes in pan and cook until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes per side. Be careful as oil may splatter. Serve immediately with tartar sauce or a squeeze of lemon.

Quick Tartar Sauce

Ingredients:
1 cup mayonnaise
1½ tablespoons sweet pickle relish
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon minced red onion
1-2 tablespoons lemon juice, to taste
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:
Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

Those look positively awesome! Crab cakes were always one of my favorite things too. I can almost imagine myself making those.

I had to make a difficult decision this afternoon. I could frivolously spend money on either In N Out or I could blow it on a pedi. Guess who is making her own burgers with killer awesome pink toenails? :D

So, today is Summerfest. This means that there is a huge carnival on Center Street in the middle of the city making driving a horrible nightmare. Lucky me I only live 8 blocks away. Woohoo! So, off to that this afternoon sometime for tornado fries and who knows what else that I shouldn't be eating/drinking.

 

Then a late evening dinner at Wallaby's I think. Hubs got a gift card for there from the gluten free fair today. I drive past there pretty often but always think gee, I wish I had stopped in back when it mattered... but whats the point now? I can't go out to a BBQ joint gluten free. So we get home and I look them up to see a 95% gluten free menu! I called and can't have the sauce cause of MSG and soy but so what? I'm still dying to go! I'll have the meat with the dry rub which I'm sure is still amazingly delicious.

 

I've worn myself to a thread this week. I'm nursing the beginning edge of a summer cold, and possibly an ear infection to go with it. (joy <_< ) I got my period yesterday, cause I'm sure everyone cares.  I'm sure that the histamines in the samples I tried this morning are near to hitting me soon, plus I'm going to be out in the sun this afternoon. And yet, I just am on top of the world.

 

Oh, and btw... it isn't just pink toenails. I have fancy nail art too. B)

Great news, I  can almost use my right hand again. Turns out the rapidly spreading horrid pain I developed on Thursday started spreading to my arm, neck, then my foot and up my leg. Then, my right lower back/near buttock was burny..so, I use a hand mirror to look backwards at myself in the mirror--not easy checking your self out back there...and I've got a good sized tick bite Bullseye rash going.

 

Aha..... that explains the creeping paralysis and throbbing digits....country living whoohoo!

Have to take the dreaded antibiotics for 14 days (no choice) and so my appetite is off. Plus, I feel kind of weird.

SKI..crab cakes look drooly good

Addy enjoy your toes and the food fair

MW look what you started

Arlene....please pass the oysters. 

 

Dinner is probably going to be whatever the hubs can whip up easily. I marinated the chicken for him at least.

Going to rest now. ANTIBees make me feel like yuck.

I should just come live with you. Ruebens sound amazing. Okay, so I shouldn't eat fermented things but... omg sauerkraut!!! (I also spelled that right without spellchecker so hah!) I'll take a pass on the oysters and wasabi though.

Doh.....was all set to hop back in my lil pool to float but thot I'd check what's for dinner and now I am drooling over oysters being served 3000 miles away and swatting my poor kindle!!! Actually thought a bug got under the glass Cuz I'm outside and feeling a bit of the ebbys all day thanks one tick that bit my buddy and bedbugs discovered in the apt next to sis today while I was on a MoveOut preinspection....creepy crawlys go away!

So this morning started off shitty when happy hubs woke up with a severe case of the grumps -- so I rode his/my bike a bit longer as I knew his primary bike is in the shop -- gave him time to understand he woke in a bad mood....all good now.

Last night we had spaghetti with some yummy crockpot sauce I let simmer all day --- it had herbs from my patio that I have not killed yet - in fact they are thriving!

Tonight is bbq chicken with baked beans - the simple bushes/maple syrup/red onion topped with bacon ones and corn for the guys...zucchini for me.

Almost talked myself outran the crab cakes....as I was being grumpy as I cannot do crab....buy picked up the ingrediants today...hope mine turn out close to that picture -- should make the three dads over here tomorrow happy :)

Edited....damn kindle turned shitty to shifty.

    • Vegetarian here too, celiac really makes it tough as all the Quorn meat replacement products bar the odd one or two are out Then there's all the scare sites saying only paleo type diets will repair your insides but guess what they're all heavily meat / fish based. @Ennis_TX has some good ideas for meals
    • Wow guys just read all the replies Thankyou all so much!!! There are so many things you've all said that has triggered a light bulb in my little head!  The glasses may not be clean!!  I will put this to a test. One night I'll stick to bottles of cider (double checked are gluten-free)  another I'll try the Gin or William chase vodka if I can find it! And see the effects. if I loose many days due to these not working I'll see a practitioner and see what the deal is!  Before I was diagnosed at Coeliac... I went to a herbalist who did a test and said corn is funny on my body!!! But then 18months later (when I became incontinant and lost a lot of weight) my bloods came back positive (after begging the docs and telling them it wasn't IBS)  i don't tend to snack at bars on food but I must admit I never thought it could be the way it's served!!  The humour and information has made me feel so much better  thanks all  xxx
    • Hey Matt  thanks for your reply fellow Brit! I this is very interesting... I am very sensitive to cross contamination... e.g. A sieve wasn't washed properly when I lived at my mums so when I had drained my gluten-free pasta .. I hadn't even eaten the dish before I started to pass out and go dizzy and hot .. calling for my bf and mum ( they had a great team going when I would have an episode) it's horrendous!  The fatigue is something I imagine every coeliac suffers with! I have to nap a lot.  Ok so the booze I drink most of is -processo -amaretto -vodka, wine, cider (very rarely)  when I drink at home I'm fine!!!  I wonder if it's cross contamination from the bar or the level of alcohol?!  I also had a jäger bomb shot on Friday (looked it up and a lot of people say it's gluten-free)  it's a hard live but someone's got to do it!!  Thanks for the reply!  When you get poorly from gluten (and the other evil candidates) are you so bad you can't function and feel your body is about to snap?  Kind regards  steph 
    • Hi Steph and welcome I'm yet another Brit, funny how the alcohol threads flush us out I don't drink now but after a big night I used to get truly savage all day hangovers, much worse than those of my friends. They could include splitting headaches, vomiting, nausea, a 'fuzziness' in my head, sweats etc.  After I put the pieces together and went gluten free I had a 'big night' on cider only and the next day was a revelation. What I'd thought was a 'normal' hangover was, for me at least, anything but. With gluten out of the equation hangovers were a breeze! The difference was mind blowing and just one more example of how gluten had been messing with me over the years. So when I read your post my first thought was that there was some trace gluten contamination going on. However: Obviously you've been at the diet for some considerable time now and know the score. I know Coeliac UK are firmly of the opinion that all spirits are safe but some (note some this a contentious one :D) members here will tell you they react to gluten based grain spirits for instance which distillation should render safe.  Then there's the dangers of shared lines if you're drinking say Strongbow in a pub as alluded to above. Lastly it its wine, there's the often cited but maybe apocryphal these days 'flour to seal the casks' possibility. Finally there's bar snacks, maybe a brand of nuts etc that you snack on that may have changed their production process? I'm sure you've thought of these already, but it may be useful if you post your alcoholic drink choices / bar snack of choice up here maybe someone will have some input?.   The second thing which leapt out was: Would you class yourself as super sensitive to cross contamination etc? Firstly that would make the cross contamination theory more compelling. You could test that out by having a drink at home under controlled circumstances to see whether the same issue arises? That could also answer the quantity question. Does one safe drink trigger it, two, three etc? Finally, and this is one that I find difficult, knowing you have the gluten issue may lead you to assume it's that when it could be something else. I tend to attribute EVERYTHING in the world to gluten these days due to it being able to affect me in so many different ways. Crisis in Korea? Gluten. Russian tanks massing on the Ukrainian border? Check their wheat intake. Global warming? etc. So it may make sense to pursue some other ideas at the same time.

    • Similarly, I've been vegetarian for 25+ years.  A 2015 Nature study connecting emulsifiers with microbiome changes has me wondering about the processed foods that I ate in the past, and I wonder about the wisdom of eating as much seitan as I did.  I mostly prefer my post-diagnosis diet since it forces me to consider every ingredient and to cook from scratch more.
