If you go to the store to buy fresh mint it is $3-4 for a teensy bit, I figure I have easily $100 worth of mint in my yard right now. And it is probably 500 kinds of illegal to sell it. <_< We have a market here that sells things like that, but there is all sorts of licensing and crap. At least once I have it as extract and oil it will be far easier to use. Heck, I can even use the oil to just make the house smell good. ^_^

Got a text yesterday afternoon asking me to sub today. Sure, what could possibly go wrong working on a Monday right? Well it turns out I hadn't left my house all weekend, not since Friday, so I didn't know what was waiting for me out front when I left my house. I was all set to head off to work this morning and hopped in my Jeep only to realize there was something poured all over the driver's side of my windshield.  <_< Looked like soap, stoopid teenagers. I flipped on my wipers and figure I may run out of fluid but this will only take a few minutes and it'll clean right up right? Nope. It was soap poured over motor oil poured over polyurethane. You have got to be f'n kidding me right?  :angry: The worst? Even though I know who did it, the cops said that unless the stupid b%$@# outright admits to it there isn't a damn thing they can do about it.  :angry:  :angry:  :angry:

 

So, instead of showing up to work at 7:30 like I'm supposed to. I was leaving my house at 7:35. I can not even say in words how hard it is to get that crap off of a windshield. Plus I really wish I had an outlet for my anger right now. Instead of being able to headshot a few guys in Fallout and watch them pop cleanly off so I can feel better I am smiling and helping students and being polite, which while this positively angry makes me just a little dead inside. 

 

So... dinner? Psh... l-e-f-t-o-v-e-r-s. I'll make some gravy, pour it over some warmed up roast and veggies. Maybe I'll cook up some squash or something as a late night snack. I've got a couple of teensy little yellow beauties to eat.

that is BULLSH!T - i'd be bustin' some heads.   :angry:  :angry:  :angry:  :angry:

 

most people around here are afraid of us.  that's the way we like it.  (plus my hubs 'boyfriend' <"your boyfriend is texting you"< is the mayor lolz)  and we are armed.  and we both have our carry permit.

 

that sucks, addy  :(  i hope your day improves, sweetie.

I obviously need to make people more afraid of me. There is no law in Utah preventing people from openly carrying so maybe I should just start that. That'll make people a bit scared. Nothing is legally stopping me from shopping at Wal-Mart with a shotgun or a handgun as long as it is openly carried and secure and unchambered. Or you know... concealed with a permit. But that doesn't scare people. Clearly I need to cultivate my scary person attitude/persona. And make friends with our mayor.  :lol: Local primaries are in two weeks, then I can find out who I need to buddy up to.  B)

I doubt I'm ever all there so I can hardly fault anyone else for not being altogether there.  :D At least you're getting there. Hopefully all those mens are taking good care of you. What would we do without our mens?  :wub:

I haven't entirely decided yet on dinner. I'm thinking though that it'll be something easy to eat, today was the next to last of my dental work. WOOHOOOOOO!!!!! All I have left is to choose between a bridge and an implant and I'm waiting until next year because I'm at my insurance limit this year.

 

For sure I am thinking cheesebread. Soft, easy to chew, but not chew free so I feel like an invalid. Maybe I'll toss together a last minute meatloaf or something. I feel half starved to death because all I had for lunch was a Chobani. Too close to dinner to truly eat, and not enough self-restraint to simply snack. I need to just keep telling myself that being a little hungry once in a while is not going to hurt me. Or my butt.

 

I already have plans for tomorrow though. BLTs! I'm going to roast my little yellow cherry tomatoes, pop their skins off, mush them, chill them and use that as a spread instead of just plain tomatoes sliced. I have some of that Hormel uncured bacon in the fridge I need to use up. And lettuce of course. Ranch instead of mayo because... well why not! And all on toast. Sounds positively like perfection to me. But tomorrow, when I am more comfortable chewing. :D

French..... *snicker* you're gonna get yourself beat with a stick!

 

Rehab is for people who want to quit their habits. I am never going to kabana boy rehab. No how. No way. I also will not be held at all responsible for anyone's craziness. Heck, I don't barely let anyone hold me responsible for my own. :D

tonight I'm cooking pork apple salad with quinoa.  I've just used  a bit of salt and pepper and cut up the pork into squares, then I'm going to cook that with a bit of olive oil, some pecans, broccoli, green pepper, (wish I had green beens etc) then I'll let all that cool down and mix it in with a cut up apple, spinach and some other lettuce and maybe some broccoli slaw. I wish I had some balsamic vinegar because that would be really good reduced.

I'm not supposed to eat chicken skin, but fortunately my husband doesn't like it. So if it was all gone before he was home he would never know! Well... except the whole migraine and being half blind thing, but it is possible that it would be almost worth it! Just tell him you made skinless chicken. Think he'll buy it?

So I am still on extremely limited Meat, Z- or Sweet Potato Spirals with Veggie meals which is boring and have not helped the men cook their food in over a week...

 

but I did make a twist on my old Chocolate Mousse Recipe -- trying to limit even Choc for a bit -- Hubby walked in and asked what I was making but I had no idea...it is now called "Snickerdoodle Mousse" -- will need some adjustment, but it wasn't bad...didn't set in the frig so the remainder will be "Snickerdoodle Ice Cream" tonight.

 

Coconut Oil

Coconut Milk

Agave

Vanilla

Cinnamon - went light as I couldn't remember...but fairly sure this is a Histamine

 

Next batch will likely be simply Vanilla Mousse.

Huh...how does the Chicken Skin react with you?  Since I've given up so many other things - stealing Crunchy Chicken Skins has before meat hits the table has become a guilty pleasure for me.

    • Where are you? Nuts are gluten free by nature, some companies might use contaminated seasonings, or make them in a facility that processes trail mix or something with gluten in it. This is where your concern lies, A nut only company should be safe, unseasoned nuts are your best bet, and yest if you can get them in the shell then wash them off really well before shelling and eating them your pretty darn safe with them. Raw walnuts in shell are safe, they normally do not add anything them to them, in case they might have gotten dusted with something just rinse them off before shelling them, I really love taking the walnuts afterward and putting them in a pan on low heat til they start to brown and lightly roast, they are great this way. I also used to take raw walnuts and candy them. Might post that recipe since I can no longer eat them and do not sell them anymore. I have a bit of a issue getting nuts myself by I am allergic to peanuts (not really a nut but a legume). SO for me it is really tricky finding peanut and gluten free nuts lol. I found 3 companies I order from, 1 for organic almonds, 1 for my own almonds, and one that sales walnuts and pistachios only. Most people here just order from Nuts.com but they might not ship to you at a good price. Tried amazon?
    • There aren't any gluten free nut brand in my country. Are nuts with shells like peanuts,walnuts sold in stores without package gluten free? Do they add anything else to them? 
    • Supplementation with Natural Vitality Stress & Energy, will help a lot it is a sublingual B-vitamin pretty much. I use it with the Neurological support from the same company and Natural Vitality Calm Magnesium. These along with a diet in foods that help with mood like snacking on cocoa nibs, hemp seeds, etc. Takes the edge off of everything and I do not worry but just roll with life. Here are some helpful links https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/ A set of microwave cookware from nordicware will make the transition and cooking some foods super simple and cheap, steam trays, rice cooker, grill plates, omelette makes etc, also great for trips. Butcher paper/Freezer paper can make a nice safe cook and eating surface and makes clean up a breeze. Crockpot meals with a crockpot liner makes really easy soups, risotto, stews, pot roast, etc and the liner can make cleanup super simple just pull it out and toss it.    Eggs dishes like omelettes using the microwave cooker, scrambled egg dishes, are super simple and one of my go to meals I also so simple stir fry meals a lot. Saute in order of harder and seasoning veggies and meats first and finish off with a sauce/deglazing mix 10-20min meal. I have posted recipes for meals in the recipes sections. MY flat bread recipe seems to bit hit recently being cheap easy and very versatile in how you can make it.
    • Hey everyone... newbie here. I have a few questions but first my history: Dx with Hashimoto's in 2003. Had SEVERE adverse reaction to T4 no idea why but then switched to T3. But T4 opened a can of worms. Immediately after starting T4 had digestive issues. Aften a few years tried gluten free. No help but stayed on gluten-free diet. 2013 gave in to blt cravings and had wheat sandwiches everyday for a week. Woke up one morning with muscles so swollen or inflammed couldn't  get out of bed. No more gluten. Also had blood in stool. 2014 finally dx with pancreas insuffiency. Digestion improved and blood stopped but at same time also dx with colitis (i strongly doubt this dx and don't  take colitis drugs). A year later added cheese back into my diet. Bleeding came back. No more dairy now, blood gone. Now i might have gastritis and sibo. Endoscopy planned for October. 23andMe testing also shows a single mutation for celiac. If i just stay Gluten-free Casein-free does it really matter is i get a dx for celiac? Celiac disease and gluten intolerance... same thing? Is blood in stool common with celiac disease? Is colitis often a wrong dx for celiac disease. Can a biopsy dx celiac when already Gluten-free Casein-free?  Which end of the small intestines used for biopsy? Meaning, when doc looks at my stomach can he do small intestine biopsy or do i need a colonoscopy instead?
    • My 7-year-old has been complaining of constant itchiness and a skin crawling sensation for the past five months, but has no external rash or symptoms.   It seems to get worse at night, although that may be because it's more difficult to distract herself at bedtime.   We've tried switching shampoos and detergents, tepid baking soda baths followed by gluten-free lotion, re-reading the labels on anything that comes in contact with her skin, having her re-tested for more food sensitivities, and even checking the house for mold and cleaning all the air ducts.   Nothing has helped. Her pediatrician referred us to an allergist who had us try several different histamine blockers, but not even Benadryl brings relief, so it doesn't appear to be a histamine issue.  Blood tests show that her kidneys, liver and thyroid are all functioning normally.   Right now I'm trying having her go nitrate-free since that isn't included in food sensitivity tests, but so far no improvement.   Now they want to refer her to a dermatologist, but the appointment is a month away and she is MISERABLE.  I have no idea how to help her.
