Because I have to share my food porn over here if I'm sharing it other places. This is what a perfect donut hole looks like. (It did not survive more than several seconds beyond having its picture taken.)

It's been too hot to do serious cooking so last night I made Thai lettuce wraps with grilled (and brined) shrimp, homemade sambal olek and nuoc cham, shredded carrot, cucumber, vermicelli noodles.  That sort of thing.

 

Tonight we are grilling again.  We are having grilled thick-cut bone-in pork chops with a Greek-inspired wet rub, roasted Greek lemon dill potatoes and Caesar salad with homemade torn croutons and unctuous dressing with anchovies et. al.  Maybe grilled halloumi if my husband picks some up.  Oh, and I nearly forgot - grilled Parmesan, chipotle and lime corn on the cob.  Not fresh from the garden as the corn in these here parts is about 6" tall.

 I live in an area full of immigrants and we have more than half a dozen hispanic markets here and in the next city over... I still had to call 4 before I found one that isn't out of fresh guavas. <_< I actually had the store by my house tell me they could order guavas for me for $7.99 a lb. I told him I'd think about it. Are these people aware that there are all these hispanic markets locally selling the same thing for 1/4 of the price?

 

I stopped for milk while I was out and found fresh local corn so corn on the cob is for supper, with a pork loin. I could still kiss whoever thought up cooking those suckers in their bags. I'll probably make myself some mashed taters because the potatoes in the pantry are looking like they just sat through a week of 100+ degree weather that the A/C didn't quite do enough for. At least they're mostly gone. (Note to self: just because 15 lb. bags of potatoes are cheap, does not mean you need 15 lbs. of potatoes.)

Made it to fireworks -- up on the rooftop...we can see several coast displays...IF the smoke gets blown out to sea -- ah ya -- this is kinda like ol' puxatony phil -- the smoke rarely gets blown out to sea -- yet to be up on the roof while my men are trying not to blow injure themselves with short fused fire crackers is something I have missed these past 4 or 5 years -- was a blast -- especially like the patriotic music in sync to the fireworks...guess i should check if there is a music sync to our nightly display from SeaWorld!

 

Tonight is steak and asparagus and those little cheese bread ball deals that Addie posted awhile back -- strangely I am graving little round dough balls for some reason today ;)

 

Tomorrow we'll have about 30 young adults for burgers &/or vegan chili -- son is hosting yet another house show -- this time ALL acoustic for two reasons 1) to give our poor neighbors a break 2) he knew it was too soon to ask me for another plugged in show -- smart kid!

Thanks for the birthday wishes *feels special* :wub:

 

Tonight we're having creamy vege pasta made with coconut cream, pumpkin, zucchini, tomatoes, mushrooms, capsicum, onion, sweet potato and chives, using San Remo rice pasta spirals.  No idea about tomorrow night.  It's the last night of the Winter school holidays, although it's far from cold here, I'm in a singlet and shorts at the moment and it's mid-winter.  Was thinking of "bangers and mash" with the gfv sausages we bought the other day.

So I went to the kitchen to make start dinner and it seemed dark. Then I looked out the window at the thermometer and noticed that the sky was BLACK! It was still about 90 then. In the space of half an hour the temp dropped 25 degrees and it rained some. (People here probably thought the sky was falling, but I grew up where it rains, this didn't look like it could soak a person in under 3 seconds so it wasn't pouring.) Most impressive was the thunder and lightening. It only lasted about half an hour but the storm passed right over us and it was enough the for a good 10 minutes in the middle of the storm the house kept shaking with every crack. I guess somewhere deep down I have sympathy for people afraid of storms, but I was just loving every second of it. I went out when it was over and enjoyed some time on the back steps smelling the rain and the whipping wind blowing. (It only took 5 minutes for the steps to be dry, love the desert!)

 

I even still managed to get dinner ready on time! I did baked instead of mashed potatoes due to the lack of effort needed. They got crispy just fine with a little appropriate TLC.

I went to the farmer's market today and found beets with their greens still on them. Not a particularly common occurrence around here. I thought I would give the greens to my bunny, but have decided to see if I can tolerate them. I haven't had anything green and leafy besides plain old lettuce in a year and it is making me crazy. I'll probably still give the bunnikins at least half, spoiled princess that she is. I also picked up fresh corn, some green onions, some fresh basil (because I kept talking about planting some but apparently I'm all talk) and some honey sticks for the hubs. There was also a food stand with ice cold San Pelligrino! I indulged, because I really do think it is a crime against humanity that every store in two cities seems to have Perrier (ew!) but not San Pelligrino cold.

 

So tonight for dinner will be recycled pork roast (see, I'm not calling it leftovers!) with roasted beets, sauteed beet greens and corn on the cob. As long as all goes well with the greens, I'll be into my homemade mint chocolate chip ice cream for dessert. (Which is also what is for lunch.)

.....that's because they are encores !  (or I guess, "recycled"  is okay) Leftovers just sounds so "sad" to me.

I admit to liking Pellegrino water and occasionally, I have seen cases of it on sale at BJs. (not sure if you have access to one of those?).

or 12-packs on a ma zon for a reasonable price.

 

I love beet greens (well,  ALL greens, really) and I hope they agree with you now. :)

 

Have not been around much the past few days, but I see you all are eating well. That's good.

 

As  some of you know, a close friend died suddenly on the morning of the 4th and I am still reeling. :unsure:

Take home message: All the things you say you are going to do "some day"--well, do them NOW.

EVERY DAY is a gift.

 

Making a fontina, potato and truffle oil pizza  tonight with a side salad.

I occasionally indulge in a whole case from Costco when they're on sale. My husband thinks I'm spoiled, I tell him I just like the good stuff. :D I generally stick with the bottles, because I have no business drinking the flavored ones with citrus juice in them. I was pushing my luck this morning with a blood orange one, my favorite! It didn't disagree with me though so it looks like those are in my safe citrus limit YAY!

 

Your pizza sounds like heaven. I'm almost drooling on my computer.

 

I make sure every day I do something fun. It doesn't have to be spectacular, like last night it was just simply enjoying 10 minutes out in the rain cooled air. Idk, a meteor could fall out of the sky tonight and land on my bed. I decided at the beginning of this year that I got robbed too much with this stupid disease and I could die tomorrow of some senseless tragedy or plain stupidity. I won't go with regrets, no matter my age. ^_^

 

(((((hugs))))) have some more hugs, you probably need them. :wub:

This sounds like me when I had to give up cheese. I wasn't so pissy about all the other things, but cheese? You have got to be freakin KIDDIN me! I thought nothing of going throw 10-15 pounds of cheddar, 5-10 of mozzarella and 5-10 of assorted other cheeses in a month. For two people! And I was probably eating 3/4 of that, if not more. I never considered my cheese habits to be a problem. :P All I wanted for a month was to stand in the kitchen, stamp my food like a toddler and yell "I want macaroni and cheese!" and pout accordingly.

 

I've discovered now that fresh cheese and I can be bestest buds. I eat fried queso fresco, fresh sliced mozz, ricotta and have discovered a whole new love for goat cheese. I had goat milk once and it was nasty, so I assumed I'd hate the cheese... never been more wrong in my life! You do learn to adapt once you learn what cheese will be your friend.

    • Anyone who has ever tried to get an official diagnosis for celiac disease has likely experienced one very unpleasant reality: Having to eat wheat for a couple of weeks to make sure the antibody tests are accurate. Currently celiac diagnosis requires gluten consumption. This can be hard for people who have already given up gluten. View the full article
    • Perhaps automated word pull as JMG suggested. It is irrelevant, but I must comment :  Oddly was entertaining for me today (on a rough day) to read this drivel that included celiac bashing . The celiac dis didn't even hurt, for it was from someone who could not formulate a coherent rational  thought  and shared that publicly. At first I wondered what substance the author was on, then I read further to discover more of this odd piece. The author is all over the place. The piece is also laced with a poorly excuted, back handed attempt to express judgement , anger, and veiled hate in a masked arrogant self subscribed Christian label.  Sure the author  makes a point of shaming the offenders who dropped off the offensive clothes. If the author were perhaps more coherent and a better writer the piece could be borderline offensive or effectively shameful. Alas it is neither.  I however felt sorry  not for the donation facility , the homeless , or the readers, but felt sorry for the author . The author clearly has a lot of self hate, anger, low self esteem, poorly hidden beneath a false facade of uppityness, narcissism, arrogance, while identifying /self labeling as a Christian.  I very rarely get to read a piece where I can play/exercise my brain as lay person couch psychologist . This piece lends itself to that perfectly. I went to the link and read the comments below the article from the real people who express how best to give to those in need, where, and how appropriately. So all was not lost. The right people commented kindly, respectfully, logically, in a helpful guiding way and without hate or shame. So regardless of how admin got this article here - most of us should skip this for the rest of us  bored enough or seeking an odd entertainment piece that does not relate to celiac , let's hope the author gets the help they need as a disgusting gluten-free sandwich has more to offer to society. 😉 Lol  
    • Hi Gemma, Welcome to the very select, exclusive, super secret club of NCGS (or I if you like), where you get all the fun of living the gluten free diet with the added scepticism of half the medical establishment and most of the general public   If you're interested in learning more, there's some good resources collected here:  Feel free to add or just post there if you like.  It's great that the diet is working for you. The emotional side is difficult no doubt. It does get easier, trust me, for you and those around you also. You get better at planning, at coping, at working around it etc. The availability of safe foods and wider knowledge continues to improve year on year.  I've barely been back to Germany, one of my favourite countries, since going gluten-free but take some comfort in the fact that its always harder in a different country with a language barrier as well, but even so there's hope: https://foursquare.com/top-places/berlin/best-places-glutenfree-food https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurants-g187323-zfz10992-Berlin.html You maybe need to accept there's a level of preplanning needed now that wasn't there before and if you do that you can still be spontaneous in other ways? Expect some setbacks, at times its ok to cry. Or, er happen to get something in your eye if you're a strapping bloke who should know better  Keep a good supply of nice safe snacks and treats at close hand. In your car/bag/pocket. Eat well before you go out. Have your freezer well stocked with nice safe food and your fridge too. Get to know what easy safe options are available, Are you in the UK? Join Coeliac.org and they'll send you the brilliant guide which will unlock so many safe, cheap foods, also available as an app. And post here, lots of good people with advice and support. Best of luck, Matt  
    • Hi All,  Recently (Nov 2017) I was diagnosed with NCGI by my consultant at hospital, this diagnosis has been after years of testing, colonoscopies, endoscopies and a 2 stone weight loss - it took the weight loss for me to finally be taken seriously by dr's. (I was tested for celiac around a year ago, all clear). I'm looking for advice to help me cope with this diagnosis, albeit I am thrilled that I potentially do not have anything life threatening (still undergoing tests, hosp visits etc.) but on the whole, I'm feeling hopeful that gluten may be the root cause to all my ailments and symptoms.  From diagnosis, I have cut out gluten completely, and apart from the odd slip up or cross contamination incident I have noticed a drastic improvement in my life quality and my time spent inside my bathroom walls has dramatically reduced. (TMI?)  The problem I am currently having is that I feel completely isolated from everyone in my life, I feel that me having to follow this strict diet is putting a burden on loved ones, especially when it comes to travel & eating out. (Was over in Berlin over the weekend, spent a good 5 hours over the weekend crying at being a burden to my BF restricting where we can eat, and also the fact that the majority of places we tried to dine, bar one or two, did not cater to the diet).  I thought I was coping with the diagnosis well, however the crying spell and fed up feeling with it proved I'm not. Does anyone have any good tips they followed and can recommend when they were newly diagnosed?    Xxx
    • Sorghum flour gives me massive cramps and diarrhea within 5 hours. I avoid it like the plague now.  FYI: Krusteaz gluten-free cornbread also has it as an ingredient, just found out the hard way.
