Someone is having a good night!

 

 

I still feel weird saying this as justification for doing things. I act like I'm 5 as much as I act my age so I'm not sure I should be allowed to say it. I also play more video games than most teenagers.

 

So, I stopped at Wal-Mart for the cheese I need for dinner, which is dangerous because I should never be allowed in that store alone. For some reason I meandered down the baking aisle, it still draws me like a moth to a flame. And they had a zoo animal Jello Jiggler mold with a giraffe! There are other animals and stuff but w/e. GIRAFFE! So naturally I bought one. Like I said, I shouldn't be allowed in that store alone. I have absolutely no self control. My husband is going to tell me I didn't need it. But obviously he doesn't know what he's talking about. Now I can eat giraffe shaped jello instead of blob shaped jello. Totally worth $3.

I'm a video game player as well  B) 

 

Beef soup with mushrooms and carrots and whatever else i think of to add to it.

I was wondering about that the other day at the store. Do they sell any puddings without food coloring in them? :wacko:

It'll be fine... it's giraffe shaped.

I make all of my pudding from scratch. Like with cornstarch and flavoring and etc... etc....

 

I could probably do that with jello if I weren't so lazy by buying unflavored gelatin and just adding whatever flavor I want and not adding color, or using natural colors. And you can only get the mold by buying it with the 2 packs of jello it comes with.

I suspect you have good news, then?  ;) I say "slainte" as I raise my glass...Gaelic for "to your good health". xx

My good news is ... regarding my cancer check up ... "no definitive progression of metastatic activity"  which means the cancer has not gone any further than the initial lymph nodes at this time.  :D  :D

My casserole was delicious. My husband wouldn't touch it. I suppose I committed some sort of super serious culinary sin though. I thought I had a jar of Classico in the house, turns out I didn't so I used my $8 jar of Dave's Gourmet.... in a casserole. Also, Delallo pasta is pretty good. It was my first time having it (because it was free, which is the best kind of pasta really) and I rather liked it even though I usually don't like spaghetti at all.

 

I'll go to my room now.

I think I'm going to have leftovers. I'll be too busy making bagels to do things like cook! My husband can eat whatever he finds for dinner. There is a perfectly good casserole he could be eating if he weren't so picky.

 

I'm working the next 3 days, whole days. I'm putting the remainder of my casserole into single serve containers and freezing it. I'll have 3 leftover bagels after the one I eat tonight to have for breakfast for 3 days. Plus I have a month's supply of snacks that I picked up on Saturday so all I have to do is pick and choose what to throw in my bag every morning. The hardest part? Staving off boredom for all 3 of those days... there are only so many amusing games on kongregate that I can play before I'll go stark raving mad.

http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/104639-homemade-bagel-recipe/

 

Someone started this nonsense earlier today. All I needed was one person saying it was an awesome recipe and I was off and running. BTW I'm just licking the last of the cream cheese off my fingers from my first one and all I can say is holy craponacracker! I didn't manage to make them pretty, but they are beyond divine. Someone please order me a goodyear sized mumu. The only thing that would have made it more perfect was lox.

 

My next step is to modify the recipe just a little to turn it into pumpkin spice bagels. That is next week's project. I'm trying to guess how many tries that's gonna take.

That would be interesting to try. My husband wants me to make blueberry ones. I think blueberry cinnamon. Like I said, I'm gonna get so fat. I may just eat a bagel a day for the rest of my life.

now, now, now....if yer gonna use that, you need to put @IrishHeart. copyright laws, and all. just sayin. :D

 

Ok, now who's the wisacre who posted a delicious bagel recipe? I can't believe we are being challenged this way.

Never got those muumuus and I have to walk on a beach for the love of mike and I can't be blobbing around like a giant giraffe-sized jello jiggler. Thighs aflapping and whatnot...

 

So....Shadow? did you try the puddin??

 

I have decided (because it's fall weather down here)

(see, that's hilarious because it's 86 and I spent the morning on the beach watching young men surfing.....)

 

to make a brisket. Not just any brisket, but something called Atlanta Brisket and it has  coca-cola in the recipe.

It should fall away from the carving knife like butter, they claim. I'll be the judge of that.

Nope not yet, I don't have the stuff to make it.

Sometimes people steal other people's sayings because saying the things in their head would be crass, crude and explicit. I can either have an anger management problem or a swearing problem, I choose to have a swearing problem.  :P In the future though I'll try to remember my ™. As penance I'll have an oatmeal butterscotch cookie for dessert with my lunch, putting oatmeal in a cookie makes it health food instead of a treat right?

 

Also, I never thought of the whole hanging out watching guys surf all day thing. Hmm.... maybe Florida really does have its merits! And you are way easily amused this morning, which is amusing. 

 

I left for work without giving a single thought to my dinner. My husband isn't working today though so maybe I should make him cook for me! I need someone I can live with and be their kitchen grunt. I can do things like chop and get things out of the oven, just so I don't have to be the person with ideas.

This another reason why you could easily live with me. :lol:  I am an "idea person". I love to come up with creative ideas for food--and drinks--and, I do not even mind washing dishes.

But, if you will help chop and dice and lift crap our of the oven for me (because you know my shoulders are bad) well, we'd be a match made in heaven.

 

Yes, take 2 cookies, repent and we're good. 

 

As for the watching the surfers thinger, it's my morning ritual and...if you do not want to come all this way, there's always California....why do think SKI is always going down to the ocean?? She doesn't surf anymore B) therefore......

low or no humidity in fall, winter, spring. Honest, If my hair is not kinky-curling, it's not humid. It's not kinking.

And I'm not sticking around for the very hot sticky stuff. That's when I am going North. ;)

    • Ouch I am sorry . I know how painful bone,  joint, muscle pain can last weeks for me . Hopefully you'll be able to clear it quickly if otherwise you have been healthy this season. As others suggested some TLC , vitamins, mineral to assist may help. I find accupuncture helpful too or massage. As for a gluten-free pizza I can no longer have them due to additional intolerances to milk. I in past days found sabatassos gluten free pizza carried at my local Costco pretty yummy if you can find it.
    • Maybe it was not the chili.  Maybe you are sick with the flu?  Sometimes, we jump to the conclusion that celiac disease is the cause of our current symptoms.  I know I have done this.   Hormel is NOT considered good, but it is gluten free and safe.  I give it to my kid on top of gluten-free pasta or corn chips in her thermos.   Add plenty of cheese and it is pretty good.  Though I admit, I used to think the burritos and strips I purchased at the beach shack as a kid were SO good!  😆 Even bad cooks can make a simple chili.  Follow any recipe, but sub out the spices for Carroll Shelby’s Chili mix which is even certified gluten-free.   My recipe is 2 or 3 pounds of cooked ground beef, 32 oz can of beans (I usually make my own beans), a can of diced tomatoes, and Hatch’s green chili’s.  I suppose you could add some cocoa to change it up.  Do not hold me to this recipe regarding the ratios of ingredients as I do not follow one as my batch size changes, etc.  I cut back on the spices when I see my family sweat!  😆    
    • This is really a general post about alkalinity and being in the news these days. Alkalinity is totally trendy, but I encourage people to educate themselves about this and not rely on trends. I don’t mean to suggest that I know everything there is to know about this, but, for example this site (http://www.foodenzymeinstitute.com/articles/digestion-in-the-stomach.aspx?list=bydate) states: [Certain enzymes are] only active within the pH range of 3.0 to 5.0 and require the acid to maintain that pH. Pepsin is very specific in its action and is simply incapable of digesting food enzymes, which are very large molecules and are more than just protein. This sites (https://www.livestrong.com/article/459954-the-acid-base-balance-in-the-digestive-system/) states Antacids increase the pH in the stomach, which might make the enzymes in the stomach less effective. I think the focus on alkalinity and acidity in our foods currently en vogue is a huge distraction and a big waste of time. To me, it represents the two steps backwards in the notion of progress. I’ll end with Dr Andrew Weil — https://www.drweil.com/health-wellness/balanced-living/healthy-living/why-alkaline-water/ “Don’t waste your money. Alkaline water is being aggressively marketed for its purported health benefits. It is touted as the solution for everything from helping the body better absorb nutrients to reducing the risk of high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and heart disease, as well as boosting energy, helping you lose weight and slowing the aging process. It is also said to be “more hydrating” than any other type of water. Alkaline water is supposed to achieve all this by correcting the body’s pH, its acid-base balance. In fact, the human body needs absolutely no help in keeping its pH constant. “ /rant
    • After my hiatus hernia was diagnosed they advised me to eat small meals spread out across the day, maybe that may help?
    • Ah I've googled it, as you guessed I was thinking of chilli con carne, this is something different!  Sorry I can't be of help.                      ps, no offence, am sure it's lovely but I did find this hilarious: https://deadspin.com/the-great-american-menu-foods-of-the-states-ranked-an-1349137024
