The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Party? Cake? I'm on my way!

 

Or we can party at my house. There is a hot tub in the back yard. One I can not use because when I get out my blood pressure take a nose dive off a cliff and I pass out. <_<

 

I have no idea what I'm going to make for dinner. I was going to make a roast but didn't think to get it out of the freezer until yesterday so I guess that is tomorrow's dinner because I'm sure it is still solid enough to murder with. I'll think of something I'm sure.

A frozen roast would make a killer blunt object! Sounds nice and tidy to me. Agatha Christie would approve.

w8in that is great news!!! Well, you know what I mean.

 

Luckily, you turned up again while we are celebrating - this cake might be just the thing for you :P

 

The thread newbie 101 in Coping with is a great place to start.

 

So - Mr Mindwarp's Victoria Sponge Cake receipe is:

200g unsalted butter

200g caster sugar

200g gluten-free self raising flour

4 medium to large eggs

1 level teaspoon baking powder

 

We use Dove's Farm SR flour, which has a blend of rice fl, potato fl. tapioca fl, maize fl, buckwheat fl.xantham gum, baking powder.

 

Put all ingredients in a bowl and hit hard with a fork (or your favourite device for such activities) until smooth.

 

Put into 2 tins, smeared with butter and very light dusting of the SR flour to avoid sticking.

 

Bake for 20 minutes at gas mk 5 , 375f, 190c (reduce for fan oven).

 

Put jam (we like raspberry) and buttercream icing in the middle (or cream and fruit like Ski's one).

 

He says you can sub some sugar for chocolate powder for a chocolate cake, and the sponge works for fairy cakes (not sure what you call those. Like cupcakes but smaller).

 

Enjoy

You seriously look like you're about to gnaw someone's arm off on your way to the cake. I think that I may just get around to that red velvet tonight or tomorrow. So I just finished off a dozen cupcakes and have chocolate chip cookies in the jar? I have stretchy pants. :D

Tonight is a shrimp stir fry with Jasmine rice.  Some sour squirty candy thingers on the side.  (They SUCK. So not worth the calories.  :angry: )  I will be home Wednesday night and will resume proper cooking!  None of this dang candy crap.  >(///)<

I craved something sour on my way back to the acreage so bought some fruity quishy sour candies that contain liquidy stuff inside. Not only are they NOT the least bit sour, but the liquidy stuff is not as promised.

And then you could cook it and that would get rid of the evidence.

We've already plotted kidnapping of our cabana boys, why not add plotting murder on a public forum to our list of nefarious plans?

I read a story once where the woman clunked her hubs over the head with a leg of lamb, killing him instantly.

She cooked it up and served it to the investigating officers who promptly ate the evidence.

I found that disturbingly clever (and once thought about using that plan years ago.....but decided I should just get a divorce instead.)

 

anyhoo :)

 

The basil is flourishing (not sure why with all this dang rain) so I am thinking Pasta Puttanesca tonight..

 

Seriously, more than 12 inches in the last 3 weeks???  for the love of mike, STOP already!!!

 

YO SKI

Sylvia told me via email that the LEMONIES were a big hit with her friends. Those are going to be served to my next dinner guests along with

Mr. MINDWARP's Victoria sponge and strawberries with whipped cream.

The local farm has ridiculously good strawberries right now, which I eat with reckless abandon.

 

Thanks for all the good suggestions, peeps. x

    • Hello!  When I find myself up at odd hours, I put on this celiac disease Mozart for Meditation... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000VFQ58U/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1516086445&sr=8-1&pi=SX350_PI_PJPrime-Sash-Extra-Large-2017,TopLeft,0,0_AC_SX118_SY170_QL70&keywords=mozart+for+meditation+celiac disease And I get out my dot to dot book, like one of these for adults.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/s/ref=is_s_ss_i_0_5?k=dot+to+dot+books+for+adults&sprefix=dot+t&crid=2B42N4PRIT56H Sometimes I knit mindless objects such as hats, washcloths or socks.  Knitting has a soothing rhythm to it and is easy to learn... Or I read a book about knitting and life... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1603420622/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087016&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=McPhee+knitting&dpPl=1&dpID=51fHYy2xXsL&ref=plSrch Or a knitting mystery.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001LRLJUG/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087587&sr=8-6&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=knitting+mysteries&dpPl=1&dpID=51z43F8UuuL&ref=plSrch Knitting is really easy to learn.  I find it soothing to work with natural fibers, organic cotton for washcloths or luscious alpaca for socks...  But I find it inadvisable to shop online in the wee hours...  😸 I've got way too much yarn now...hee hee hee...  besides, the light from electronic devices keeps your brain awake longer.... Hope this helps.... Knitty Kitty  
    • My only symptom was slight nausea. Lasted 6 months before it started to only happen if I ate too much food in a sitting. I would eat simple, bland foods and eat 6 small meals instead of three big ones.
    • I've lost some of my sense of taste due most likely to zinc deficiency from not eating beef for a couple of years. Zinc supplement doesn't seem to help, but eating .5 to 1 lb of beef per day definitely does help. I noticed a positive change within days of eating beef. I don't know if your diet includes beef, but if it doesn't there's a reason for you.   Zinc and Geographic Tongue
    • I was in your same boat when I was diagnosed. Terribly fearful of cancer and all the damage I unknowingly had done. I don’t cheat, but I’m not as good as I need to be at restaurants (I only order off gluten-free menus but I don’t talk to managers like I should, etc) and I eat out once a week with never having symptoms. My main symptom is absolute, complete brain fog. I am truly not the person I used to be. I’ve always had anxiety, so that wasn’t any worse, but I hate to say this about myself but i got “dumb”. It was my first week in nursing school when I was diagnosed. What a great time, huh? I had to stay at school until midnight-2am 4 nights a week just to try to focus and control this brain fog. I used to be smart, quick witted, and very present in the moment. I know life changes, but my life is busy yet very peaceful and I struggle with this daily. I can’t comprehend medical concepts quickly like before and it’s very depressing. I also have a pretty good diet but have weighed 165 (I’m 5’4”) for three years with doing cardio, training for marathons,  etc..nothing gets this weight off (have had thyroid issues since age 7). Anyways. You are not alone. My doctor diagnosed me 5 years ago and told me to stay gluten free and I never saw him again! No follow-ups... I had no clue I had to! Anyways, I have an appointment upcoming as well.  Best of luck to you ❤️
