OMG I have this great image of you loading the cart, sunglasses on ,...music from a spy movie....lobster tails hanging out of every trench coat pocket, sticking out of your shirt where you have shoved them down there face first.......and speedily checking them out at the self-check register before the frozen food dept. manager realizes his magnificent blunder........and running to the parking lot..

 

yes, BECAUSE I'M SO NON-CHALANT LOLOLZ!!!  (i felt like lucy ricardo - quick, honey, create a diversion!!)   :lol:

 

my hubs is convinced that the 'fish boy' has a thing for me - remember the $2.99 lobsters?  ;) same guy...

non-chalant and graceful, I am sure!! 

Addy...we've got another Lucy Ricardo here! :D

 

yes, I remember fish boy. I have "meat counter guy" myself.

He actually looks past others and asks me what I would like today? (even when I am not first in line)...he told me 15 years ago that he likes me best because the first time I came in,  I asked "May I have...." instead of

"GIMME a".. and he was so grateful someone asked him politely for once. Made me sad he felt so mistreated.

 

I was stunned back then by that comment and I still am today. Why wouldn't anyone say "may I have..."??

Thanks Everyone!

 

Just for kicks my silly body decided to flare two evenings in a row....no more experimenting for me for a while -- lol...I mean no more experimenting with foods.....  :P (need a little blushing dude).

 

Anyhoo....another rain check for dinner date...thinking it may be tomorrow afternoon if my evenings keep us guessing.

 

I'm a "Lucy" too -- must be another one of those unpublished Silly Symptoms ;)

 

Dinner tonight is....hmmm...wtf is dinner tonight....oh I know:

 

Baked Chicken

Sweet Potato Fries -- three colors :)

Carrots

 

and the good old Chocolate Mousse for dessert

 

thinking a trip to the Farmer's Market to make things a bit more colorful for the next few days will help.

 

Happy Friday to all!!!  That looked much cheerier than I am...will work on it!

((hugs)) and sorry you had to postpone for now, Ski but I know you will come out of this and be back riding your bike very soon, honey!!

 

Dinner on Fridays is always golf day, so that means pizza, but not today .....as I too, have had a few bumps lately  so

I am KISSing myself  (keeping it simple stupid) so I can also feel as good as I was feeling pre-glutening, pre-tick bite, pre -inflammation.

 

Looks like: 

baked chicken

sweet potato fries

carrots

 

Oddly,that is what I have in my fridge/pantry, too!.

 

:D

Here's one for you....I go outside to rescue a chipmunk who has caught himself up in the netting around the blueberry bushes

that is there to keep the birds away.  He has gotten the netting wrapped around his neck and his legs--like he is hogtied.

And he is squealing like mad.

 

I go back inside, grab scissors & run  (I know, I know ) and get him partly undone, but it is a terrible mess of tangled webbing and it's choking the poor thing. Okay. I can do this.

 

I have to cut the ones that are wrapped around his neck somehow. Not easy. there are several plus his feet are bound...and he's wriggling like mad.

 

I work as quickly as I can, but he keeps doubling his body over into a ball. Just as I almost get the feet done, the little s$#& bites me

on the left index finger!

Breaks the skin, too . He hobbles towards the back --the forest area...me, chasing like a dope because I want to help this little thing.

 

I grab him again...NOW I put the stupid glove on (duh!) and I get the legs almost undone...it was an epic struggle to get this thing to hold still, but I can't get the one around his neck cut before he bolts into the woods.

 

.....where I am forbidden to go because I just got the tick bite and the rash.

 

I could never catch him anyway..he's gone in a flash. I start to cry because I am sure he will not live with that around his neck. I almost had it... damn.

 

Hubs is headed for the golf course and his phone is off ( an hour away) so I relay a message to his pal to have him call me.

I am an hour away from the urgent care center and my doc is on vacation....so, I wash and clean the wound (this is not my first time cleaning a wound, lets just say)...Okay, think....tetanus booster was 2004. good --under 10 years --- but I'm probably gonna need another one....good news is, the urgent care doc calls me back to say "no worries, tomorrow is soon enough". Oh boy, that shot will freeze up my deltoid muscle for a few days. arrgh.

 

 

The fun never ends in Lucy Ricardo land. <_<

I am laughing my ass off....sure wish you hadn't got bit....but you running with scissors after this poor little dude is a visual I will not soon forget!

 

Thank you for sharing!!! 

 

Sure hope the shot doesn't lock you up too much -- darn that wild life is keeping you hopping - literally -- just imagine how quiet your life will be in Florida -- you may need to be thinking about joining the Marine Rescue Unit -- only partially kidding...you'd be great at it :D

Look on the bright side, at least chipmunks aren't a rabies risk. So, it could be worse I guess.

 

And yes, the visual of you running across your yard with scissors is quite hilarious. I needed a laugh today. :lol: (Not just because it is a bad day, but because I'm at the end of a book I've read before and I know what happens and I'm about to lose a very dear friend... it doesn't become any less heart wrenching no matter how many times I read it. I'll cry like a baby and I'm putting it off as if that will save him.)

 

My husband brought home some cheddar bacon bratwurst last night that he wants tonight. So, that is for him. I have no idea what I'm having. With the kind of day I'm having I may just grill a burger and some lettuce. Just... one of those. <_<:angry::wacko: I shoulda stayed in bed.

wish I had a video of me trying to wrestle that chipmunk and saying "come on little dude, I am trying to help you... fah cryin out loud!

my Bostonian comes out when I am all agitated.

 

of course, I wish I had video of me rescuing the chiipmunk my Maeve (previous cat) had in her mouth in OUR LIVING ROOM (that chipmunk's eyes were the size of saucers)LOL  ..or the many birds that flew inside or the bat I caught in the fly swatter and brought outside while 2 men stood there quaking in their boots...or when I yelled at the bear on my front porch who had my bird feeder in his paws (but first, I got the camera and snapped his pic!)...or the neighbor's herd of cows who came to graze on my lawn...or the neighbor's horses we drove home by whipping the dog's leashes in the air like a cowboy...all the way up the road..or the time I held up a snake to show my Mom and she almost fainted....lots of adventures here in paradise. Gonna miss it.

 

But, they have a sea turtle rescue and a marine wildlife center down there that needs volunteers ..... :)

When my oldest daughter was 6 she chased me around my mother's yard with a snake. I was probably shrieking like a little girl, all I actually remember was the panic. I ran in the house and my mother forbid her to bring the snake in the house. What is up with little girls and snakes? EWWW!!!!

Too hot to cook inside.  I almost wish there was still some snow left to roll around in!

Since there isn't, we are grilling:

 

Juiper-Brined Pork Tenderloin with Spicy Apple Glaze and Apple Chips

Baked then Mashed Mango Whisky Sweet Potatoes

Apple Cider Vinegar et. al. Slaw

Blueberries (aren't grilling those tiny suckers!)

We had chicken parm and steamed green beans with almonds.

I love chicken parn, I don't know if I want to make my own breadcrumbs or what. Feel free to give me any suggestions if you have anybody

Too hot to do any cooking in or outside, I might make a chicken, pizza with some bacon. Or do a beef taco with refriened beans.

I am four months into living gluten free. When the doctor first told me I have celiac he said it takes time for the small intestine to heal. Can anybody elaborate on this?

Thanks guys! You all are amazing

Oh yes, W8! We are very cute!

Hub said he would be home and grill. Asked 17 yr old....." I don't care. It s all good". 20 yr old " burgers!". So we had burgers - we mix the very lean hamburger with BBQ sauce. Then really good corn on the cob - peel, butter and wrap in foil & grill. Ore Ida crinkle fries in the oven! Forgot I was going to put carrot sticks on everyone's plate!

HOLY KRAP!  lolz you are killin' me!  (ya know, those chipmunk things are at the bottom of the food chain.  hawks and owls are high-fiving....)  what a funny story, irish - but don't be too heartbroken - there's probably 30 more waiting for their shot at the blueberry bush ;)

breadcrumbs are easy (but not cheap loolz - i must be celebrating hubs' b-day too much tonight with crappy redbridge lolz i keep chickening out of the wine spritzer idea!

i use the bread ends from udi's or rudi's or even bread i didn't like because of the texture or whatever, i will save and just dry out in the oven a little, then zip them around in the mini-choppa.  if i want panko-ish breadcrumbs, i don't dry out the bread very much, get them to the choppa!  <see what i did there, a little arnie humor yuk yuk  ^_^ )  they will chop a little bigger because they're still a little moist then i put them back in the oven on a sheet pan for a few minutes till they're dried.  i am the queen of improvise lolz if i can't make it, i can fake it   ;)

 

ps - i have also bought gluten-free breadcrumbs but they were 'wierd' - like one kind was all ground up seeds and whatnot, one kind was very obviously 'corny', etc, but depending on what you're making, some of these might work for different recipes.  i like plain jane from gluten-free bread - then i can add whatever i want (italian seasoning, garlic, whatever) depending on what i'm shooting for :)

don't ya love that?  what do y'all want for dinner????????  no matter how many warm bodies were in the house, the answer was always:

 

FOOD.

 

what kind of food???????????

 

THE KIND YOU EAT.

 

at least you got a pretty good idea lolz - maybe i should ask your 20 what he wants then make it here hahahahaaa!!   :)

 

edited to add:  did you ever grill the corn right in the husks?  we trim them (pull off dry outer husks, cut off top silk)  soak them (sometimes) in water or salt water, (sometimes not) and put them right on the grill.  so sweet, delicious and juicy you don't need any butter or salt.  just peel and eat  :)

Irish, you'll have plenty of critters in Florida, but you won't need to rescue chipmunks!!  (You can grow blueberries though!)

 

I made red beans and rice with lots of veggies in the pressure cooker.  Served that over rice with grilled bratwurst and salad.

    • I'm a scientist, and I did a little research into the study. Looks valid and it was published in a respected journal.  http://www.gastrojournal.org/article/S0016-5085(17)36352-7/pdf The science looks solid. As someone who didn't have a super clean cut diagnosis before going gluten free, I'd love to see something like this become available. Then again, there's no doubt in my mind that I can't have gluten, so any additional testing would be purely academic. But like I said, I'm a scientist. I can't help myself. 
    • Update: I have tried calling the company several times and have emailed twice. I have yet to talk to a person on the phone and no one has emailed me back.    I did a little research and they were are already involved with a class action lawsuit about being labeled as salt free and one of the first ingredients is sodium chloride.  I am done with this shampoo because this whole company seems a little shady now! 
    • I've actually been glutened by shampoo with hydrolyzed wheat protein, and I wasn't even the one using it. It was my husbands! I swear I don't go around eating my husbands hair.  I am pretty sensitive though, so it's entirely believable that the trace amounts in his hair were getting onto his and my hands and then making its way to my mouth, etc. etc.  It was a slow and steady low grade glutening that eventually built up to something that I was able to recognize as more definitively "a glutening". Once we ditched the shampoo and I recovered, I realized that I'd been feeling it for weeks.  It's going to depend on your level of sensitivity, but even if you don't feel it, it could still be doing damage. Also... I second that. Starch is a carbohydrate, protein is a protein (obviously), there is no simple process that would convert one into the other. Also, as gluten is a protein, converting starch to protein wouldn't be expected to do anything to gluten ANYWAY.  Speaking as a biologist here. I call poppycock. 
    • I just want you to remind you that I just had a repeat endoscopy last week after my diagnosis some five years ago.   Even though my antibodies are still elevated, my intestinal tract has healed.  But why have I been feeling sick?  I have chronic gastritis.  Who would have guessed?   I do not drink (rarely), take any meds other than my thyroid replacement, and do not have H. Pylori.  That leave autoimmune as the most likely culprit.  I also have some other minor issues that I think is related to Hashimoto’s.  So, I am in an autoimmune flare-up, but celiac disease is not the cause of current my woes. My endoscopy results have validated that I have been doing a good job about avoiding gluten.  I can relax a bit now!   I think because the treatment for celiac disease is a burden placed on us, it can become overwhelming.  Sure, we all eventually master the diet and most of us go on to lead plain old normal lives, but if something is off, celiac disease is the first thing that many of us blame.  Actually, we blame ourselves, to be honest.  We have to remember that we are often dealing with other health issues too.   As far as hair, I buy gluten free shampoo.  It is from Costco and it says it right on the label.  Nice and inexpensive.   Do I really need it to be gluten free?  No.  I think the last time I swallowed shampoo, my mother was most likely bathing me and I did not heed her warning to keep my mouth shut (baby shampoo may not sting your eyes but it tastes awful!).   Like you, sometimes I think it helps to have one less thing to think about and that can be priceless.           
    • https://www.twinings.co.uk/hot-chocolate-coffee-other-drinks/hot-chocolate-and-malt-drinks/twinings-swiss-chocolate-drink Have discovered this drink - it's great, labelled gluten free and is also fortified.   I can't drink too much milk as I get bloated, but find it tastes really nice even made mostly with hot water and just a small amount of milk.  Thank you Twinings.
