You deserved to celebrate today!

 

I have a cheese problem. (Like as in I'm an addict besides it not agreeing with me.) I do find though that I do much better with fried queso fresco than any other cheese, maybe that would suit you when you feel a little better Lisa? I just slice it up and fry it in a teensy bit of oil until it's crispy on the outside. I don't know if there is anything you regularly make (or can make) sandwiches out of, but it's excellent on warm arepas if you do corn or are into that sort of thing. It's also perfectly good to just pick up and eat all crunchy and amazing.

 

Thanks Addie...prolly should have tried cheese like that....actually we did use cream cheese about a month ago in squash soup without too much stomach upset so i'll wait awhile and try a safer young cheese...still can't do bread...this was glutino and failed corn tortillas a few months back when i tried...hard cuz i pay for every trial...yesterday was not a trial..i simply couldn't take it and made a grilled cheese with muenster cheese slices...I know better, but oh well i paid for playing...

 

this morning we are using a different sort of patience....comic con registration day...feels like we should be standing on one foot while rubbing our tummies and patting our heads...you need a code from last year's pass, member id, pw and secret code and yet we are still waiting to get to the front of the electronic line....

I've been trolling the Salt Lake comic con facebook page all week. They're giving away a boatload of passes (entire weekend passes!) every week. So I will do anything I have to to get them free. I missed it last year, and this week has been... hell. I can't miss it this year. And omg Brent Spiner is gonna be there.

I prefer geek to nerd. :P I'll go with a day pass if I can't get the free weekend pass. I'm not PAYING for that crap, the price is insane! :blink: I'll just go for the day Data is there because I have a serious geek girl crush. Have since I was a teenager. Almost as bad as my Patrick Stewart crush.

Tsk, tsk.  You girls and your crushes!  Not that I don't have a few one or two myself.  ^_^

 

Roast chicken tonight with a lovely chipotle lime garlic rub.  Cheesy cauliflower bake and roasted asparagus drizzled with delicious Croatian olive oil and sprinkled with pine nuts.  Oh.  And individual flourless chocolate cakes with peanuts and peanut butter filling and lashings of chocolate ganache.  As we are low carbing it, I am using 99% cacao which is pretty...bitter but the peanut butter balances it out.  When it comes out of the oven, I sprinkle with smoked Maldon sea salt for crunch.  Surprisingly, salt makes bitter chocolate sweeter.  It is just so...so...scrumptious.  :P

We'll have breakfast for supper tonight. I haven't decided if we'll have biscuits or pancakes yet. I do know we'll have eggs, hash browns and bacon flavored sausages. I'll probably even indulge in an extra sausage or two because I'm already going to be rebounding from dental work and narcotics and surprisingly I don't feel like hell yet anywhere but my face. I just want something soft and easy to eat and at least the sausages are only half bad for me. :ph34r: I'm just at my snapping point this week.

 

And ugh... I woke up this morning looked at the news and cried like a baby. I can't believe Shirley Temple is dead. This is probably incredibly stupid, but her first movie I ever saw was Heidi and I think I saw every movie she ever made while she was little. They have a serious impact on shaping what kind of person I became. I know no one lives forever, but I was just heartbroken at the news. A piece of me will always be that piece that was shaped by the little girl I was named after who grew up on the Alps. My mom even used to curl my hair like hers. (when she could get me to sit still long enough) ^_^

Sunday night we had chicken enchiladas with a sauce I made from a recipe that was on here somewhere, corn spoon "bread" (more like a souffle) and Spanish Rice.  I made the enchiladas in layers because its hard to get them to stay in circles.

 

 Last night we had chili.

 

 Tonight it is Encores as we have a lot of stuff left.  The enchiladas are better the next day!

Almost the same here...filets, roasted asparagus, some baby potatoes for the hubs and possibly a sip of bubbly and one little eensy bite of chocolate?  I am staring at 2 dozen glorious roses here...he is a total romantic, this one....I think I'll keep him.

 

We are eating off stacked boxes..No table and chairs yet, but who cares? lol

 

Cheers, all.

We weren't really celebrating anyway, we aren't much of V-day people. Just leftover chicken getting used up as quesadillas and some red velvet cupcakes. But this morning heaven got two little angels and Valentine's Day will never be the same for anyone in my family again. My cousin's wife and other daughter are still in the hospital so any prayers that can be offered are much appreciated.

Thanks. The world keeps turning I guess, and the money I spent Tuesday to pay for my Bountiful Baskets produce turned into pick-up day today. I can't say I understood when I paid $16 extra dollars for 25 pounds of rainbow carrots that I knew exactly how big a bag of carrots that would be. Now I have this huge bag of carrots on my counter that I have to deal with.

 

On the bright side, dinner will be roasted carrots. And pork tenderloin, but mostly carrots. My husband will eat his raw because that's the only way he eats carrots, although I think I'll be able to talk him into at least tasting my roasted ones before turning his nose up. There were some lovely pears that would make a nice dessert if I can talk myself into one instead of a cupcake.

Today is one week in the new house and I have decided to break out all the "stuff" I  found as I opened boxes all day.

It's like Christmas here LOL

 

Plus, we have a fantastic veggie/fruit stand right here, so I made

 

A Pizza Bianco

 

Chebe crust with an olive oil/garlic baste

4 cheeses (fresh ricotta, shaved parm, shaved gorgonzola, fresh MOZZ)

Plus, sauteed broccoli, asparagus, portabellas and shallots.

 

Holy cow, was it good. :)

I made a quick chicken 'stir fry' with 1 chicken breast, a bag of stir fry frozen veggies plus added some extra carrots and peas. I used a light balsamic vinaigrette for the sauce with 1/2 tsp of guar gum to thicken it. Yum!

Addy - I saw about the wreck on FB. I felt so bad for that daddy.

I also saw your bounty of colorful carrots. My guys don't mind cooked carrots in stew or soup. I bet they would like them roasted. you could roast them and freeze for a quick side dish.

Last night for VD, we had cheese and Schar baguette, grapes and brownies with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.

Tonight - we had a nice Robotics practice match this afternoon. So we didn't get home until 6. We got some gluten buns for the guys and some Ruffles chips for me. Then we got some smoked briscuit and turkey from a local place. The GE's ( gluten eaters) got fries and onion rings.

I made a Grand Marnier Souffle with Creme Anglaise for dessert last night. First time I've made it since going gluten free. I just substituted cornstarch for flour and it came out fine.

This sounds more than fine....sounds delicious :)

 

So I have been craving a dreamlike substance really bad so I just made something similar to Addie's Brazillian Cheese Balls....sans cheese with lots of garlic...they weren't half bad....a bit more chewy than when I made the cheese balls in the past...yet a real treat for me....prob shouldn't have posted so soon after eating...was just fun to add something other than squash and sweet potato ;)

 

Hoping I get to encores...left batter in the frig for the night as I these would not be good reheated.

 

Lol..."dreamlike" is my spell check's version of "breadlike"..that's what I get for making up words!

    • If you hear an ice cream truck playing morbid music, grab your money and run!  They sell roasted sweet potatoes from a truck.  Live on those.   They are delicious. Eat them as you would eat a candy bar.  It's just sweet potato.  Maybe 300-500 yen for a big one.  They are sold by weight.  served hot and ready.  I have purchased enough for a few days at a time and eaten them cold after refrigeration and loved them as well.  300 Yen per potato so plan accordingly incase  you hear that truck.
    • I have been to amusement parks & stadiums that don't really have gluten-free except ice cream, chips, that sort of stuff.  And, when called or emailed in advance, I am given a note to bring my own food.& eat outside with my family.  But that is different than a restaurant that is not allowed to have outside food in. From what I have seen, this family didn't handle the whole situation well.  If they had brought a small discrete lunch in, waited until the others had their food, then pull it out and not made a big fuss, they probably would have been fine.  I have also been told that this tavern does do a safe gluten-free meal.... 
    • So sorry it is difficult.  There is soy and fish flavoring in everything!   I too have neurological damage from 40 years of gluten.  I can feel your pain.  Do you want me to look for a base contact for you?   I still have a connection at my Okinawa church which is near Camp Foster.
    • I find it amusing I brought this up to point out that discrimination is not something that should happen to those of us with this disease and if handled well we can compromise by bringing our own food where allowed and calling and contacting places prior to going explaining and setting things up. In this way we do not end up feeling out of place and can try to live a more normal life with social interactions and gatherings if all is handled well. I am unsure if this goal was met or blown out of the water . One point I think this applies also and has for me so far it seems, is theme parks. Places like Six Flags where your stuck in their grounds, and they can not guarantee food safety. I found that with my celiac diagnoses I can talk to them and be allowed to bring my own food into the park. This not only allows me to head out and eat but also saves me a ton of money >.< as expensive as gluten-free food is theme park food is like another 3x that. They just put a medical sticker on my cooler and I store it in a locker in the park and go back to it for snacks and food. Odd thing from years past.....I have a life time member ship to Six Flags, But I can not go unless someone else is with me for when I get anemic, or sick so I go once a year if even that (not gone this year or last year). My other option is to book a hotel near by or sleep in my car. (I get deathly tired at night and pass out around 9pm). There is also the lines I have to buy a flash pass to skip the lines, or I have panic attacks being unable to move for hours waiting for a ride.  
    • I lived in Okinawa for 4 years prior to diagnosis.  My son however tried to go gluten free during that time.  His school had no idea what I was trying to say and could do nothing for him.  Everyone eats school lunch. Period.  It was difficult.  If I went back I would eat the percooked hard boiled eggs from Lawson's or your nearest convenient store.  You may feel more comfortable rinsing them before eating them.  I would also eat the plain rice onigri.  If you know the contents of the mayo you could eat mayo/fish onigri. Stay away from the ones that use soy sauce.  Maybe look at tins of fish while you are there to see if they contain soy sauce. The other idea is to connect you with someone on a base.  They have great American grocery stores with lots of options and American doctors and hospital.  They deal with American insurance companies.  I looked into that for my father in law who came to visit while terminal.  He had postal insurance and was 100% covered in Okinawa on base.  Do you have military connections there?   Camp Foster or Kadena grocery stores are the big ones with the best selection.  The others may be too small for your needs.
