I literally dump:

 

Sliced pineapple...my slicer makes thick slices which we like in this cake.

Sprinkle good amount of Brown Sugar over pineapple

Sprinkle one package yellow cake mix -- I've used all different brands..they all work

Drizzle one stick melted butter over the works

Bake for 20-30 minutes at 350 -- time depends on what size pan you use -- again, I've used all sizes/shapes of pans.

 

Works well with granny smith apples too -- just add cinnamon on top -- yummy.

 

I use all brands of gluten-free Cream of soups -- I get which ever is least expensive...today I'm using Healthy Valley Organic because I ordered a case from amazon at a good price.

So happy for you that you're on your bike again! :D

 

I'm off to PT and stopping on the way home at the library and post office. I got a thing yesterday saying they had something for me to pick up but that 39 cent is due for postage. I've never heard of the company it's from and I'm quite confused. I definitely want to know what it is before I go giving them my money, even if it isn't any real amount. I'm confused that a company just mailed me something and expects me to pay for the postage. :huh:

I made this pineapple upside downer following Ski's suggestions for a family dinner party. Hubs and his Aunt Annie (you all know about her--the manhattan-loving gal? lol)  LOVE pineapple upside down cake and I confess, I had never eaten it in my entire life.

 

I had a box of KA G F yellow cake mi in my pantry  and did what Ski says here and it was a huge hit! I served it with vanilla bean ice cream. It "tasted like more" as we say in this house. ^_^

They make these "dump" cakes at Boy Scouts/  They call them cobbler.  They are also good with a can of pie fillings - apple (with spice cake) , peach, blueberry, cherry - with chocolate cake mix.  They cook them in a dutch oven in the fire (coals on top of lid).

 

Two nights ago we had pasta with cheese baked on top.  Last night we had cheeseburger pie with assorted fruit and carrot sticks.  Not sure what we are doing tonight.

Apparently mysterious people are mailing me cookie cutters. I called the company on the way out of the house to PT and they're all psh... we don't know nothin bout nothin but we sell stuff on etsy and amazon and all over the interwebs so maybe you bought something and didn't know it was from us. Whatever. I got to the post office and they showed me a package, I felt it and was like, omg, almost definitely a cookie cutter. I was totally right! Now to notify the company to get their heads out of their butts in regards to shipping. And to figure out who sent it... as if that's gonna be hard. I'm lookin at you Irish. :P

Giraffe! Just one, but that's all you need to make cookies with. There is only one appropriate shape to make cut out cookies into. At least in this house. :lol:

Or my mother maybe? Or my dad, which would be weird but I suppose he might do it. I just doubted my kids cause they already sent me crap for mother's day and there is no reason for them to send me crap now. I could see my husband doing it maybe, although he's not awesome at keeping secrets. Time to start gently harassing people.

One time when my friend who is also named Laura was pregnant, I sent her a giant package of hickory farms stuff because she craved sausage all the time.  I wrote in the little message box "Dear Laura, please enjoy eating my sausage, love, Laura."  And they didn't put it on there because they thought it was dirty... haha.  So, she asked on facebook "Ummm whoever sent me a box of sausages, thank you!  They are delicious!" which set off a firestorm of hilarity.  

 

Addy, I picked up some of the glutino faux oreos ("fauxreos" as I call them) and they are so good!  Why did I buy them?!  My hiney will grow from this.  I also have had a lot of joint pain and such this week, bad lupus days really, so I haven't been back to water aerobics.  Hopefully next week I will be able to. 

 

Yesterday I had leftover chicken tacos for a late lunch so I just ate a PB&J for dinner.  I went and got the hubby some wing stop to eat, he really likes their wings.  Today will be spaghetti with meat sauce and broccoli on the side.

Whew, back from my Amish store shopping spree and exhausted! We hit 4 different Amish stores throughout southern Michigan and northern Indiana. Some of my great finds were Schar bread for 49 cents a bag (got 8 bags of it for 49 cents and the 9th bag free from their free box) and Lundberg rice for $1 per bag. (I got 6 bags of it, yay! That stuff usually costs me between $5-6 per bag) 

 

I also got several bags of corn pasta for 69 cents per bag and lots of other goodies. Resting now and putting away all of the food!

 

I'll probably make veggie wraps for supper again, they are so good with the fresh microgreens from my FarmBox. (weekly subscription to an organic farm, similar to CSA)

Fauxreos! Hahaha I love it! If I had better self control I would keep them in the house all the time. My sleeping pills say on the bottle to take with food and I take them half an hour before bed. Well cookies and milk are a perfect bedtime snack, but I just can't seem to control myself with those cookies. Fortunately, my husband is doing a good job of helping me with the ones we made this week. They make good lunchbox snacks too.

My mystery sender remains a mystery. <_<

 

Tonight we're going to just have burgers and corn on the cob and whatever other veggie I dig up for myself. With it having truly turned summer I'm rather enjoying things that are simple, delicious and take very little effort. Like lunch... apples and gouda. I was gifted a small block of gouda which I don't think I've had before. It is divine. Duh... it's cheese!

At my bridal shower (the first marriage to Barney Rubble back in the stone age) someone gave me an unmarked box, no card and I opened it and it was a "dirty words game". Hilarious!

 

You know the kind I mean..letters that were magnetized so you could spell risque stuff out on the fridge?  The person I thought gave it to me has denied it for 31  years. No one has ever claimed responsibility. (I would have--it was a cool gift and I would taken the accolades! lol)

It's still a mystery. 

 

I guess you'll just have to enjoy the fact that someone was sweet enough to think of you!

Back from a day where I brought my own food to two different potlucks. 

 

We went to a lasagna lunch at our neighbors house and I brought my own penne pasta, salad, and treats. Supper was a potluck at the church and I didn't feel like any more heavy food in the heat so we had Canyon Bakehouse raisin bread with peanut butter, honey, and sour cherry jam, as well as a big fruit salad. The only thing that we ate from the potluck was some watermelon that we set aside beforehand.

 

I got a chance to talk to a gal today about gluten free food. Actually she brought up the subject. She knew I was gluten free and she had some questions about it. At one point her allergist recommended that she go off gluten for awhile, so she did. When she went back on, her headaches and eye pains came back with a vengeance. I explained to her about celiac and why she should get tested before going gluten-free again.

 

Now to plan for my FIL's birthday party tomorrow. I'm bringing a peanut butter pie, a watermelon cake, and stuff to grill like veggies and vegetarian "chicken" strips. (I use the Beyond Meat brand which is certified gluten-free) My sweet MIL said that we can have a whole separate grill for the gluten-free stuff and cover it with foil too. I'm so blessed, I think that I must have won the inlaw lottery.  :D

Yep.....and a good friend whom made me laugh out loud several times -- always fun when the hubs looks sideways to see why I'm giggling!

 

Lovely menu -- I may have to copy a few of those evenings.

 

It is Sunday once again so Dad comes to dinner...this week the Crock Pot Creme Brulee made it into KFG first thing this morning -- even before my first cup of caffiene!!!!

 

Dinner is Turkey Soup -- odd choice for warm weather, but am out of broth so I figured two birds - one stone :)

 

Off to walk before the sun breaks through the morning cloud cover.

Today I had done a lot of cleaning so my husband suggested going to BJs Brewhouse for dinner... don't have to ask me twice!  I didn't realize I was so hungry until I ate a whole gluten-free pizza and a gluten-free pizzokie :D  Gosh I love those things.  Good thing it is a little bit of a drive to get there or I would have to eat them more often and I would be fat!

 

Tomorrow I am going to make a big batch of rotini with meat and mushroom sauce to eat throughout the week for lunches.  Then I have a bunch of zuchinni and other veggies to cook up as well.

    • Ennis_TX, thank you for your response! I will take heed of all your nutritional pieces of advice, one by one. And yes, I am aware that a gluten marathon is on the horizon soon.   Before doing the test, however, I shall try to fortify my diet with the nutrients you mentioned, and report back in a week or two.   I think adding some iron supplement is wise too.    
    • Yeah I thought that rant might make me look like a queer after reading it a bit later.....I am straight btw I just have very long and fine hair...that yeah it blows everywhere and gets in my mouth sometimes, and always pushing it with my hands or having to tie it up.  I blew up because it sometimes feels like I am talking to a bunch jocks with buzz cuts when it comes to hair....like people that do not understand no matter what you do....it is going to end up in your mouth and you have to keep messing it and working with it when the stuff runs like 4-6" past your shoulders.
      >.< thing is some times with the way your hair is.....you do not rinse it all out...some conditioners I have used in the past used to b ones you would not rinse all the way out....it sort of does become a issue that is very easily avoided. There are many more options for gluten free shampoos now days and many companies have taken the allergy/gluten concern to heart and removed them/used alternatives to boost sales to a larger demographic. Point is while yes I did blow up about it...and honestly in many cases the "hydrolyzed wheat protein" thing is a hit and miss on if it really contained gluten, but better safe then sorry is my bet and with tons of options....why chance it?


       
    • B-vitamins...most gluten and processed foods are enriched...your basically eating a multivitamin every time you have a slice of bread etc. Look for a full spectrum B-vitamin supplement, others can be magnesium, iron, vitamin d, folate, etc. You mention plenty of greens and fruit so ruling out vitamin A,C,K, and a few others. Hmm did you drop off your carbs too much? If your carb dependent you need more complex carbs from like sweet potatoes, rice etc. And what about fat and protein? I am a keto dieter, my body burns fat instead of carbs for energy so I can say it is quite important to have plenty of fats and protein in your diet. Try snacking on nuts/seeds between meals or making up a protein shake with almond butter in it between meals (again going but what you said you eat vs what you might be missing)

      I use Liquid Health for my spectrum B vitamins and vitamin D. Might look into them, being in liquid form you can just add it to a beverage. Might see about magnesium also, huge issue with many with this disease.

      On other after thought, your probably already very aware of...but you mention your not "diagnosed yet" you will have to do a gluten challenge of eating gluten for a extended amount of time daily prior to getting tested. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
    • Thanks guys! I have an endoscopy/colonoscopy  feb 5th, so we will see. I have had digestive issues for the past like 10 years. GERD, migraines, lactose intolerant, dizziness on and off starting last year. My test just always show chronic inflammation, I thought they tested for celiac last time but it was only H. pylori samples. As much as I don’t want to have celiac I’m hoping this could be the root of my problem! My doctor said I should probably go gluten free after the test regardless of the results. You guys have been so helpful!! 
    • Well was trying it in smoothies, and puddings...but yeah  I can see it especially with the jelling effects causing some issues...will try again later. I changed over to pumpkin seeds higher in zinc today for my rotation.

      PS I am allergic to corn..and any kind of sugar messes with me. SO most meds are off limits. I went with Immunity Tea from Republic of tea, Ester-C Capsules, Thayers slippery elm lazenges sugar free, and a zinc Supplement for my remedy. Oh and sugar free meds normally contain that asu what ever stuff......makes me go off the deep end mentally.
