I just can't keep up with this thread.  It's like, in the old days, using the telephone on a party line.  

 

I missed Cinco De Mayo, didn't know it was coming up.  I need plenty of warning for Holidays if I'm gonna hit the right day!

 

And one more thing, when exactly is Mothers Day.  I know its coming from all the commercials on TV.

 

Oh, I made brownings last night.  Hips be damned!

Mother's Day is this coming Sunday -- shall I send a memo to your kids ;)

 

It's hard to miss Cinco de Mayo this close to the border -- the college crowd and older folks start partying about the 2nd or 3rd and stop on about the 7th!  I actually warned my new drivers of major holidays and using extra caution for drunk drivers and yep, include the 5th of May week in that category here.

 

Make some nachos and I'll send a margie over to ya!

I'm afraid to ask.  What's a Margie?   And it was a nice thought about the memo but if they actually got me anything for Mothers Day I would have to give them the money for it...lol

I think that is an affectionate name for a Margarita.

 

They could wash & wax your car or something.

Oh heck ya!.  Add me to the "Margie of the Month" club  :D I like em shaken with salt....

 

I could possible get my Son to wash and wax but since I told my daughter in a very nice way to "move her assets out of my house", she might be a hard sell.  I'll look for something on Facebook from her. :lol:

I love chores as gifts -- hubs deep cleans the kitchen floor for me this week every year -- my birthday follows right after Mother's Day so it gets lost in the Mother's Day celebration for my Mom every year -- my crappy old kitchen floor gets shiny next weekend -- it really is one of my favorite gifts -- sometimes I ask for it for Christmas too :)

I was thinkin.....if you use triple sec, you would not need "orange cake mix" as I would think that would be "orangey" enough. There's always orange extract??. 

 

and for the love of mike, you chicks are killin me with the cakes....I'll just have the Rita as we call them 'round here. Hand made, no mixes, the old fashioned way.

Thanks to the Mex cartels and crap weather. The fruit stand peeps (who get some of their produce from there) are none too thrilled.

I've been getting 4 for a buck until last week. One is  now .79 and J had to squeeze that sucker with pliers to get anything out of it. :blink:

I usually frown upon Garage Tools in the Kitchen.  I take a box of garage tools out of the house every week or so.  It's interesting too because nothing in the house is getting fixed but there's tools everywhere....huh.

My favorite is hearing them bounce around in the washer or dryer.  How many wrenches & bolts and washers can you fit into 1 pair of jeans?  1 pocket has the phone & one the wallet - so... doing the math and extrapolating from my extensive research (getting them out of the wash/dryer )- the answer is 1 wrench, 3 allen wrenches,  3 standard sized bolts, 3 pennies, 1 nickel, 1 quarter, 6 washers, 2 zip ties and 1 pair of safety googles.  Thank goodness the boys don't have any of those painters pant style with the extra pockets!

Only tools inside this house are mine and they are not allowed to migrate to the shop!

 

Cobbler's kids had no shoes.....Contractor's wife does all minor repairs (otherwise I have to hear either A: why blankity blank is not needed or B: get right to it - contractorease for one day in the future if I remember the conversation)

 

Luckily when things are leaking flooding or floating away he does spring into action dragging the boys in tow :wub:

Have to reply to myself because all joking aside, my man is wonderful about taking care of business.

 

Multi-talented, he does electrical, plumbing, woodworking, fixes cars (HUGE motor head! he had a '68 corvette when we met and he let me drive it!!) and he does fix everything. He taught me how to lay hardwood floors, plus our beautiful slate floors back in NY --around the woodstove, etc, etc,

we made that house pretty special.

 

OOH and he can get a cork out of a wine or champagne bottle in a few seconds flat. whoohoo!! (and we say whoohoo! every time it pops) 

 

I was just joshing. I always give him credit for being the handiest guy I know. 

Even if I find golf tees, nails, and other assorted things in his pockets.(do not ask)...and in the washing machine.  :lol: I have only one little boy but he's a handful LOL

Got groceries today, picked up a brownie mix since I was craving them (HEB store brand, new item, not that good to boot.  Should have gone with KAF.), and after I made it and pulled the pan out and set it on top of the stove, I reached to the top shelf of the upper cabinet to get my cooling rack down.  Burnt myself on my tummy!   So I blame you all for my fat hiney and my burnt belly, lol.  It hurts really bad even though it is a minor burn, I guess it is the location.  I burn myself often enough that I keep burn spray in my kitchen pantry, LOL.

 

Tonight will be grilled chicken with carrots and corn on the cob.  It is pretty much Mexican food season year round here in Texas so no special celebration tonight, haha.  And Cinco De Mayo is everyone's favorite drinking holiday, stay off the roads late at night.  We had tacos yesterday so I suppose that counts for an early celebration :)

    • Hi!  Um, please forgive my quirky sense of humor..... Celiac Disease is genetic... All first degree relatives of people diagnosed with Celiac Disease should be tested for the disease, too.  Gall bladder problems are often associated with Celiac Disease.  Your diagnosis might save your whole family from further medical problems as they age and the disease progresses... You need to set a good example if relatives are similarly diagnosed.... and then everybody will have to eat gluten free at family gatherings....  
    • That's what I thought!  My father has gluten sensitivity and I almost regret telling the doctor that because I feel that made her jump to conclusions because of that.  He never had the biopsy either.  I feel like doctors think it's just easier to say it's celiac when they show a gluten sensitivity to avoid additional testing, even if that diagnosis doesn't make any sense at all.  My doctor didn't even offer the biopsy, and said the blood work was enough.  Should I seek a third opinion?  I mean, I've been gluten free for 9 months...
    • It will prolong your life....celiac is a autoimmune disease that  causes your own immune system to attack you. The longer your eating gluten the worse it gets, I mean all kinds of other autoimmune disease, food allergies, food intolances. One day you could lose the ablity to eat carbs, or sugars, or become randomly allergic to tomatoes or corn all cause you decided not to be on road to healing I am not kidding here. I am allergic to corn, can not process meats, have another autoimmune disease that makes it so I can not eat dairy or CARBS/SUGARS.   I wish I could go back in time and go on a gluten-free diet a decade ago. Worse that could happen you could develop cancer or other complications and yes we have had this happen to a member before on our forums. Think of it like this your just changing brand here I will give you some links to some gluten-free foods, and how to order them, You can even order alot of them online this should help simplify it for you. I suggest thrive, amazon, or one of hte other links from there, Many you can order from the manufacture. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • I know this is not funny for you guys, but I had to laugh about how all of those family members simply ignored your well meant advice. That is definitely head in the sand syndrome. I have tried for a long time to find the connection between autoimmune diseases and my health. With this celiac diagnosis I have finally found it. All of the puzzle pieces are in place for sure and it is going to be my mission to do the best possible in order to get healthy again.   What a sneaky disease this is and to think that none of my family members never were diagnosed, despite the fact that both have been in doctor's care all of their lives. It really goes to show that most medical doctors simply seem to completely disconnect nutrition with health.   I am scared to give that advice to people when I see them suffering from specific diseases. But there are people that I would like to help if I can. Scared to make those suggestions, because so many times negative reactions follow and all I meant to do was to help that person.
    • There are definitely things you can do to make it easier on yourself. But all of my ideas seem to cost money and involve cooking. But I'll give it a shot anyway in case you haven't already thought of it. I would buy a small chest freezer and put gluten-free foods in it. Canyon bakehouse sells their fantastic bread and bagels right on their website. You can just buy a case of it. Then if you ever get in the mood for a sandwich or bagel the bread's right there frozen in your chest freezer. If you get invited to somebody's house for dinner find out what their cooking and make your own similar version of it. So for Easter I would make ham, potatoes and broccoli and bring that with me. So when everybody else is eating a fantastic Easter dinner I'm also eating a fantastic Easter dinner. I have other food issues and before celiac I was invited to a friend's wedding. I wasn't going to be able to eat the food they were serving so I made similar food at home. They were serving lamb, ham, vegetables, potatoes. So I brought ham, corn and potatoes with me and heated it up when everybody was going to the buffet to get their food. So when everybody else was pigging out on this great wedding dinner I was also pigging out on a great dinner. And nobody would have noticed if they didn't try. Sometimes you just get in the mood to have a frozen dinner and just don't feel like cooking something. There's two ways you can go about this. I happen to be addicted to Udi's chicken Florentine and think that their broccoli kale lasagna is very good as well. So I'd stock up on that in that chest freezer. glutenfreemall.com has tons of stuff. On Sunday you can make a weeks worth of food and freeze a lot of it in individual portions. After a few weeks you will have several different meals in the chest freezer that you made at home. You can eat those on weeknights when you're too busy to cook. In my family Friday night was always eat out fast food night. McDonald's, Burger King, pizza, fried chicken. So for pizza my plan is to purchase Etalia New York style pizza crusts. Purchase some Escalon six in one crushed tomatoes and freeze in individual portions. Buy some Grande 50/50 mozzarella cheese and freeze in individual portions as well. If on Friday night if I am in the mood for pizza I'll just grab a crust, a portion of sauce and a portion of cheese from the chest freezer and make myself pizza in under 15 minutes. When I get invited to a barbecue I bring loaded potato skins or batter fried chicken wings. Everybody loves them as do I. I by Pamela's gluten-free flour from Amazon six at a time. So I always have some available. For the record, at the moment I am an extremely strict diet and cannot do any of the above. But will go back to that method in a few months.
