I'm sure someone will use the recipe if you post it. It does sound yummy.

 

Last night: chicken and wild rice soup (from a can)

Tonight: cilantro lime chicken soup (from a can)

 

Why? Because what I thought was worse than usual allergies because my husband was hanging out with his cat turned out to be a cold.... that actually turned out to be the flu. And I work like 12 days a year and this is the only time ever I've had to work 3 in a row and magically I choose now to get sick. World's. Best. Timing. I'm being super careful, not breathing on students, using enough hand sanitizer to choke a donkey. They're adult students, not kids, so no one panic.

I still want nothing but soup and frankly don't have money to throw at cans of soup every day. Not that I have a choice, but I don't want to cook either. I'm going to just pick up some already cut up veggies, throw them in a pot with some chicken and stock and boil some rice a bag. Bam! Dinner for the weekend. I'm frankly too sick to give a crap what my husband eats. He's a grown up, he'll figure something out. Or starve. Whichever. Either way, I'll be asleep all weekend so it won't affect me one way or the other.

me too - minus the veggies - i put stewed tomatoes over mine :)  comfort food for me!  after tonight's plan was tacos w/the grand kids but the meat was bad!  it had an expiration of 10/31.....  WHAT?  ground beef!  i bought iton monday, never checked the date until the package started expanding.  how can 'fresh' meat keep until 10/31 :o

 

anyways, hubs and kids had chinese take-out and i had leftover mac & chz.  i love the stuff.  if i was stuck on a desert island, i hope i was shipwrecked on a macaroni boat with a cow and a chicken and a giant tomato...........  i'll be all like:  "look, cow and chicken, another piece of the macaroni boat has washed ashore, but don't tell giant tomato!"

 

pentameter.  whameter....  i have been the voice of persuasion and reason ("because i said so") to 4 grandkids all day, babysitting.  going to sleep with the sick one - immune system, you're up.  let's see what ya got  <_<

Mac and cheese with stewed tomatoes is awesome!!! They used to serve that at the school I went to and I loved it so much. I was the only person who would do double lunch tickets that day, most people just had milk or milk and fruit.

 

Good luck with the not getting sick thing. Didn't work out for me, so you can have my leftover luck that clearly I didn't use.

Know what's the most insulting? Based on when I started feeling sick, I'm 99% confident I picked it up at the Expo. <_< I am 100% sure there were irresponsible people there who didn't belong there. Someone in line early had a lady join them with her daughter who wasted no time in proudly stating she had pink eye. My immediate thought was "what the holy hell is she doing here?!?!" :blink:

 

Note to self: get flu shot before next year's expo. I guess the bright side is I'm getting this whole being sick thing out of the way early this year. :mellow:

I have posted the Cowboy Steak soup recipe.  I thought it might be nice to make a place we could post soup and chili recipes.  Newbies might like it too.  I put the brand name of the things I used that might have gluten - like broth.  Thought that might make it easier.  I made my recipe with a bit more description that I might usually give.  I know we get people who haven't cooked much so I didn't want to scare them.

The soup my hub wants when he is sick - Noodles cooked in chicken broth.  Youngest son likes some rice in chicken broth.  Sometimes I will sneak a few shredded carrots in while the rice or noodles are cooking.

There are 2 things my dad can cook and wants to cook for himself -  One involves hot dogs and thinly sliced potatoes in a casserole.  the other is a box of mac and cheese, cooked hamburger and a can of stewed tomatoes.

Great idea for the soups and chili thread. I'll cut and paste a few there.

and kudos on posting a pic. Cupcakes look de-lish!!

 

The Atlanta brisket I made (I saw it on Cook's country) was really good and the meat was fork tender.I served it with smashed potatoes and steamed English peas.

Thursday, it made a delicious brisket sammy on the rolls I had made earlier in the week with a horseradish cream sauce and a cup of the escarole and white bean soup I had made Tuesday (in other words, it was "encore night") :D

Friday was homemade pizza.

Tonight could be lobster or some hogfish (which is a delicate, mild white fish that is just awesome) but the hubs is not into fish, so he'll get scallops. We'll see what the fish market is doing today. Probably pair that with some caribbean rice and Karen's favorite--haricots verts.

 

P>S> I have never been a fan of mac and cheese with tomatoes. No offense, all those who love it.

We all have our taste preferences.

My mom hates cheese (I know,I often wonder if I am adopted) and my dad loved the mac and cheese with toms) so we never even got mac and cheese that much as  kids. We had to go mooch at someone else's house for it.

My MIL made it with tomatoes. I found it ....blech.

tonight i think will be:  tacos, take TWO lolz - i have ground venison in the freezer.  i guess they can keep their never- expiring cow meat *shudder* 

 

unless i get another Great Idea for Dinner.  omgosh, i am having the worst craving for stromboli  :( 

 

i got glutened last weekend (eating out, "untrained" people staying with us, who knows from what) but it feels different - not so many digestive issues as balance/co-ordination, muscle ache, fatigue.  wierdddd.....  my headache went away almost immediately.   oh, and cranky as all get-out:  you should hear what i'm not saying out loud (shut up, shut up, shut up!)  -_-

Oh, she could make it right apparently---my hubs and my Dad loved it. I just do not like toms in my mac and cheese.

 

at least your MIL acknowledges your talented cooking skills.  :) my first MIL LOVED me and my cooking. I was an angel in her eyes.

MIL #2? er, nothing about me was right.  <_< may she rest in peace.

if it makes you feel better, that's what happens if I get hit. Not the same as when first  DXed when I'd be sidelined for weeks.

The muscle pain ramps up to 10 and I get burning nerve and skin pain, a bunch of sores on my face and scalp, I feel off balance and awkward (more awkward than usual lol) , the  fatigue is unbeleivable and I want to punch people in the face. People I do not even know. I have to watch a bunch of comedies and stay inside.That's just not right.!... :ph34r: lol

yeah, that gluten head--she is a beeyutch!!

I don't really like the tomato and mac and cheese thing - right or wrong.

 

 

I haven't seen my current "MIL" in about 5 years.  Hub has seen her two or thee times so we know she is still around.  :ph34r:

Want mine? I see her 2 or 3 times a week. <_< I'm sure even my husband would be willing to give her away right now. :lol:

 

I'm a horrible person when I'm glutened too. I can't even go to Wal-Mart because if one person looks at me funny I'll start thinking things like "I swear to God if you so much as open your mouth in my direction I'll stab you in the eye with a spork from the deli." And so I stay home and don't even talk to my husband without the disclaimer that I may say something I don't mean.

 

Mmmmm.... stromboli. I think the only thing I'm willing to try to get down this sore throat is honeyed tea and more soup. A stromboli does sound like a fun challenge though.

A failed or malfunctioning computer doesn't mean everything is lost. It is possible if you take it to a tech they can retrieve your hard drive information. A blue screen is rarely (if ever) related to your hard drive, so your information is probably all intact. If you have truly valuable information on there, you can probably go to a tech and tell them what you want and see if they can retrieve it for you.

 

Now if isn't something you already do, you need to get yourself a three-ring binder and start printing out recipes so this never happens again. :P

    • Feeneyja, This will be a little long but I will  try to be brief as possible. See this discussion thread that talks about how Pellagra is often diagnosed as other disease's today because doctor's rarely recognize it today in a clinical setting. Pellagra's is described as the 3 D's if you don't count the 4th D of death if it goes long enough and is not diagnosed in a timely manner. Dementia (Neurological) Digestive (GI problems), Dermatitis issues (Ezcema, Psorsias, Acne etc.) According to mdguidelines website http://www.mdguidelines.com/pellagra indicates that quoting “The diagnosis of pellagra is straightforward when the classic rash is present but may be elusive if there are only gastrointestinal and/or neurological manifestations.” And why I believe in many cases Pellagra goes undiagnosed today.  Because doctor's have forgotten how it presents. A longer researcher article about the neurological presentations of pellagra mention the many ways a Niacin deficiency can present itself. Here is the link https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ and I will quote some of the neurological/dementia related symptom's of an undiagnosed pellagra patient. "Mental symptoms were wider than dementia, in that depression, fatigue, psychomotor retardation, mania, obsessions, and a whole range of psychoses with auditory and visual hallucinations were well described, along with personality change and sociopathic and drug and alcohol addictive behaviours. Panic disorders were seen as was a general inability to deal with physical or mental stress. Poor brain development such as hydrocephalus or cerebral palsy was also common. Acute delirium or even coma occurred, with some patients having myoclonus and other extrapyramidal signs reminiscent of the spongiform encephalopathies. The dementias of pellagra included features akin to Lewy body, Alzheimer’s, frontotemporal, vascular, and prion diseases. Parkinsonism was also common and a festinant gait was first described in pellagrins. Tremors of various descriptions, including asymmetric rest tremors, were noted and some patients had typical paralysis agitans. Pellagrins had a characteristic expressionless facies, so some signs of parkinsonism were present in most cases. Many features of pellagra closely resemble the nonmotor aspects of PD. The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." It is me again. You can see the neurological symptom's of Pellagra are severe and wide ranging. Taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can alleviate many of these symptom's if your daughter has subclinical pellagra and the doctor's don't know to look for it. I had deep depression for many, many years and I shudder to think now that only a Vitamin could of helped me 30+ years ago and the doctor's didn't know to look for it. Shoot it isn't just Niacin.  All B-Vitamin's help your stress levels.  IF you have stress B-Vitamins can help your stress levels. I take Folic Acid for Blood pressure problems and it keeps my BP with in a normal range. A article on celac.com discussed this topic in detail a few months ago. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html I hope it is helpful.  Good luck on your continued journey. If you have never heard of Pellagra you are not alone. Dr. Heaney discusses why this is so in his online article Pellagra and the 4 D's. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ If you don't have time to read the whole hindawi article I also suggest this shorter but informative blog about why a Niacin deficiency can cause dementia related conditions. https://pellagradisease.wordpress.com/ Then decide for yourself and your daughter's sake to decide whether to take Niacinamide or not to see if it helps the D's symptom's she is experiencing (Digestive, Dementia etc.) The International Journal of Celiac Disease makes note of this in their research that Pellagra could be contributing to symptom's being diagnosed as Celiac disease today instead of a possible (co-morbid) Pellagra that causes the same symptom's. When they discuss how Pellagra and Celiac disease are related (Co-Morbid) in a Celiac diagnosis are surprised to find that in 58% of Celiac's -- can also be diagnosed with Pellagra. See this link http://pubs.sciepub.com/ijcd/3/1/6/ Quoting 3. Pellagra and celiac disease "The two diseases can be connected in two aspects. 58% of pellagra patients were shown to have malabsorption and many had intestinal pathology on biopsies [36, 37]. Alternatively, Pellagra was described in celiac disease [38]. The skin manifestations in pellagra might have some additional etiologies, since multiple nutrient deficiencies are at the origin of the cutaneous manifestations in celiac disease. The following nutritional deficiencies inducing skin rashes, were describe in celiac disease: Zinc, Iron, Vitamin A, E, B12, niacin, folate, selenium and essential fatty acids [39, 40]." If one is being diagnosed incorrectly the other co-morbid conditions can continue to cause Celiac like symptom's. But if the majority of those who have been diagnosed as Celiac could be helped by taking Niacinamide I see no you reason you shouldn't try it. Or at least research it some more. Again good luck on your continued journey. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. Posterboy by the grace of God,

    • Color me confused.  I went to Costco yesterday and there were 2 products there that had GLUTEN FREE plastered on the box but then in the ingredients was a: May contain wheat. How is this possible?  How can they still put gluten-free on the box?  We should be able to trust gluten-free labeling no?? And second question:  How many of you would still buy that item?  I REALLY wanted to buy the Island Way Sorbet for my daughter as it is her FAVE.  But I didn't want to take the risk.  Maybe when she is healthier?  I mean it is SORBET?! LOL So frustrating!
    • JMG I have never laughed so hard! This was the best epic comment I've read! Thankyou so much!  Your all teaching me so much! Love the 'my glass to go' idea!! I will be adopting this... can't believe the mucky glasses we must be drinking from! Shocking!  Im still baffled how so many people don't understand cross contamination i.e. The crumbs on the work surface to cut the lime for your tasty beverage!  Your all amazing Thankyou x
    • Yes!  I never really had GI symptoms, but I did have palpitations and restless leg syndrome from anemia.  These went away within the first month. But myalgia and joint aches aren't better after 1 year.  Waiting to get my antibodies re-tested and see if they're negative.....
