We got gypped outta the Super Moon -- we have a thick marine layer at night that clears about 10am each morning -- commonly referred to as "June Gloom" -- so I set my alarm for 430am hoping the view would improve whilst I slept -- no luck...just one bright marine layer :(

 

Not sure what is for dinner....something easy -- maybe spaghetti and meatballs.  Oh and vanilla cake (made spares yesterday) with strawberry frosting (left over from sis's bday)  -- so I guess that makes it Encore Cake ;)

How was the graduation?  Congratulations!  :)   Did you have a restful day today?

 

Reminder:  Make the peach dessert thinger I mentioned up thread.  You really, really should.  :P

Welcome Myself!!!

 

I've never had the NP Raspberry -- I don't like my beer fruity -- except for an occasional lime in a Pacifico pre-celiac dx.  Oh my...someone needs to produce a gluten-free Mexican Beer!!!

 

Thanks for the welcome....

 

Yeah I agree.  I was kind of left with few options so I tried.  It was better than what I had expected but it didn't blow me away either.  The fruit flavoring was subtle though.

And today it's a hangover.  :blink:

 

I drank too much.  Alcohol always seems like a good idea to me at the time until the next day and I'm hurting.

Thanks....I knew I'd forget...I did buy beautiful peaches on Friday....this must be why.

Graduation was awesome! Beautiful day with plenty of family and friends to help celibrate.

I am indeed resting a bit today....cuddling with the kidlets now....they are watching one episode of curious George .... then we read more books and a round of CandyLand....then perhaps one last splash session before we send them home!

We just heated up last night's leftovers tonight but I had a sudden urge to have cornbread. So I threw together some hot water cornbread really fast last minute and we both love it. Finally something he'll eat that isn't an animal!

Hubby wants chicken alfredo. It has been a long time since I've made it since it is something that I'm sure won't agree with me at this point. I'm not brave enough to go there, so I'm going to make myself some pasta with meatballs (homemade! :blink:) and some of that leftover Dave's butternut sauce I froze. I really wish there were meatballs I could buy, but I had to decide not to agree with soy. <_<

 

I'm going to keep telling myself I don't want chicken alfredo. I may eventually convince myself that its true.

haloumi....drooool  yum and lamb is my favorite thing and if you lived closer, I'd be barging through the door right now, just to smell your kitchen.

You may want chicken alfredo (hell, I want chicken alfredo!!) but you are not going to have it because you are avoiding aged cheese right now for a good cause. (I am helping, not nagging! :) :) )

I knew someone who once said " Yeah my grandkids are adorable, especially as they blow kisses and wave goodbye from the back window as they pull out of the driveway..."

 

You have had a Very, very, very busy few weeks, my friend....take the rest of the day off. :)

 

 

Grabbed a chicken on the way home (sounds like I did that with my bare hands)

and it's going in the counter top rotisserie with a nice olive oil baste of various herbs and

possibly some "couscous" made with brown rice and herbs....

because I need to take a serious break from the foods I ate all weekend with my guests.

Had too many HH foods and sweets .(I should not brag,  but my cream cheese buttercream frosting is just ridiculously good---you could

slather that stuff on dirt and it would taste good)

 

......all of which makes me tired and draggy, so I made myself go to the gym this morning as my reward!.

 

All I can say is.........OINK.

:D

Oink...oink...I'm there too -- but did get my beloved 'silver shadow' back on the road this morning -- been riding hubs hybrid for awhile now as my shoulders and wrists were not happy with my race bike -- and....wait for it...my problematic left shoulder is happy -- well not happy, but not in pain which with my fuzzy math today is the same thing ;)

 

No resting today....need to take care of things that got shuffled aside this past week during playtime and graduation celebration....somehow my busy day is much less work than the little ones.....fun for a visit -- and they show their uncles how much work being a parent of small children is....great birth control for young adults :D

My husband knows that I love him dearly to do things like make him some of my favorite foods that I don't dare touch. :wub: Not that I'll exactly be suffering with my dinner. :D

 

And I meant to freeze some of my cupcakes but they never made it to the freezer so I need to polish them off today. OINK myself!

Yay for your bike back! And I encouraged my daughters both to babysit children of varying ages, preferably multiple children at once. I told them I wanted them to earn money. I lied. I knew it would be awesome birth control. Evil moms strike again! :lol:

Don't know how others make them...but I do it kinda like meatloaf -- ground beef, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, oregano, egg and bread crumbs...then roll into 1" balls and fry OR tonight I'm doing humongous meat balls...3" balls that I bake most of the way thru then finish them off in the fry pan just before serving.

Meatballs

 

Similar to Ski's....., except I use a combo of ground beef, ground pork & ground veal (ask the butcher at the store for "meatloaf mix" )

In addition to what she puts in hers,

I  add some grated parmesan and parsley  to my meatballs and I bake them on a tray for 20 minutes in the oven at 350.

Then, I add them to my sauce.

People use recipes for meatballs? :blink:

 

I always use beef, sometimes I add pork or veal or sausage or ground whatever to it too. As long as its meat. Add eggs, add breadcrumbs, add whatever seasonings in whatever amounts seem like a good idea at the time... I used to use copious amounts of parmesan but I suppose I can't do that anymore. I do have a teensy bit of ricotta in the fridge though and I suppose I'll probably add that. Garlic, always enough fresh garlic to keep an army of vampires at bay for a month.

 

Sometimes I roll fatties by hand, tonight I am using my teensy cookie scooper to make little meatballs. I'll just bake them til they look perfect. I'm making extras so I don't have to do this too terribly often.

    • 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.
    • LOL, that might put it into perspective if I explain it that way. 
    • I am very interested in this too. My daughter tested negative for celiac, but has terrible primarily neurological symptoms. Because she tested positive for SIBO at the time and was having some GI symptoms, I was told it was just a Fodmap issue.  I knew better and we have been gluten free for 2 years.  Fast forward to this February. She had a SIBO recurrence that I treated at home with diet and herbal antibiotics because I couldn't get the insurance referral. She was doing great. Then stupid me brought in gluten containing chick feed for the new baby chicks we got.   Feed dust everywhere. Total mess.  Really, no GI symptoms (she was SIBO free by then)...but the neurological symptoms! my daughter couldn't walk for three days. Burning down one leg, nerve pain in the foot. Also heaviness of limbs, headache and fatigue. Better after three days. But unfortunately she had a TINY gluten exposure at that three day mark and had another severe reaction: loss of balance, loss of feeling in her back and arms, couldn't see for a few seconds, and three days of hand numbness, fatigue, concentration problems.  Well, I actually contacted Dr. Hadjivassilou by email and he confirmed that the symptoms are consistent with gluten ataxia but any testing would require a gluten challenge. Even with these exposures, antibodies would not be high enough.  His suggestion was maintain vigilance gluten free.  I just saw my daughter's GI at U of C and she really only recognizes celiac disease and neurological complications of that. But my impression is that gluten ataxia is another branch in the autoimmune side of things (with celiac and DH being the other two).   At this point, I know a diagnosis is important. But I don't know how to get there. We homeschool right now so I can give her time to heal when she is accidentally glutened, I can keep my home safe for her (ugh, that I didn't think of the chicken feed!)  But at some point, she is going to be in college, needing to take exams, and totally incapacitated because of an exposure.  And doctors state side that are worth seeing?  Who is looking at gluten ataxia in the US?
    • Caro..............monitoring only the TSH to gauge thyroid function is what endo's do who don' t do a good job of managing thyroid disease.  They should do the full panel and check the actual thyroid hormone numbers.........T3 and T4. The importance of the TSH comes second to hormone levels. In order to track how severely the thyroid is under attack, you need to track antibody levels.......not the TSH. I did not stay with endocrinologists because I found they did not do a very good job and found much greater help and results with a functional medicine MD.  You should not have a goiter if your thyroid is functioning well and your TSH is "normal".  Maybe they should do a full panel? Going gluten free can have a profound affect for the better on thyroid function and that is something that is becoming more and more accepted today.  Ask most people with Celiac and thyroid disease and they will tell you that. My thyroid never functioned well or was under control under after I discovered I had Celiac and went gluten free.  It was the only way I got my antibody numbers back down close to normal and they were around 1200 when it was diagnosed with Celiac.  I was diagnosed with Hashi's long before the Celiac diagnosis.  I am not sure Vitamin D has anything to do with thyroid antibodies but who knows?  Maybe it does have an affect for the better. It is really hard to get Vitmain D levels up, depending on where you live. Mine are going up, slowly, even after 12 years gluten-free but I live in the Northeast in the US and we don't have sun levels like they do in the South.  I take 5,000 IU daily and that is a safe level to take, believe it or not.  I get no sun on my job so the large dose it is! Having Celiac Disease should not stop you from being able to travel, especially S. America. I travel, although I do agree that some countries might be very difficult to be gluten free in. You can be a foodie and travel with Celiac so no worries on that front. You may not be able to sample from someone else's plate, unless they are eating gluten-free too but I have had awesome experiences with food when traveling so you can too!
    • I don't know what you drank or where.... so here are a few thoughts. - sure, a dive bar might have dirty glasses and serve a cocktail in a beer glass?  But a nice reminder place, with a dishwasher, should be fine.  If it's a sketchy place, Stick to wine, then it's served in wine glasses that aren't used for beer or bottled ciders in the bottle.   - ciders on tap might, just a slight chance, have an issue.  Because of beer on tap, mixed up lines, etc. - you may have a problem with alcohol - you may have issues with The  high sugar content of the drink.  I know I have similar issues if I drink serveral ciders of extra sugary brands - are you positive it was a gluten-free drink?  Not this " redds Apple" pretending to be a cider - it's beer with apple flavor.  Or one of those " gluten removed " beers?
