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.

    • Hi Steph and welcome I'm yet another Brit, funny how the alcohol threads flush us out I don't drink now but after a big night I used to get truly savage all day hangovers, much worse than those of my friends. They could include splitting headaches, vomiting, nausea, a 'fuzziness' in my head, sweats etc.  After I put the pieces together and went gluten free I had a 'big night' on cider only and the next day was a revelation. What I'd thought was a 'normal' hangover was, for me at least, anything but. With gluten out of the equation hangovers were a breeze! The difference was mind blowing and just one more example of how gluten had been messing with me over the years. So when I read your post my first thought was that there was some trace gluten contamination going on. However: Obviously you've been at the diet for some considerable time now and know the score. I know Coeliac UK are firmly of the opinion that all spirits are safe but some (note some this a contentious one :D) members here will tell you they react to gluten based grain spirits for instance which distillation should render safe.  Then there's the dangers of shared lines if you're drinking say Strongbow in a pub as alluded to above. Lastly it its wine, there's the often cited but maybe apocryphal these days 'flour to seal the casks' possibility. Finally there's bar snacks, maybe a brand of nuts etc that you snack on that may have changed their production process? I'm sure you've thought of these already, but it may be useful if you post your alcoholic drink choices / bar snack of choice up here maybe someone will have some input?.   The second thing which leapt out was: Would you class yourself as super sensitive to cross contamination etc? Firstly that would make the cross contamination theory more compelling. You could test that out by having a drink at home under controlled circumstances to see whether the same issue arises? That could also answer the quantity question. Does one safe drink trigger it, two, three etc? Finally, and this is one that I find difficult, knowing you have the gluten issue may lead you to assume it's that when it could be something else. I tend to attribute EVERYTHING in the world to gluten these days due to it being able to affect me in so many different ways. Crisis in Korea? Gluten. Russian tanks massing on the Ukrainian border? Check their wheat intake. Global warming? etc. So it may make sense to pursue some other ideas at the same time. Try:  http://goaskalice.columbia.edu/answered-questions/suddenly-drinking-alcohol-makes-me-sick http://www.steadyhealth.com/topics/very-abnormal-hangovers-thinking-it-could-be-allergy-to-alcohol Cheers Sorry, best of luck!

    • Similarly, I've been vegetarian for 25+ years.  A 2015 Nature study connecting emulsifiers with microbiome changes has me wondering about the processed foods that I ate in the past, and I wonder about the wisdom of eating as much seitan as I did.  I mostly prefer my post-diagnosis diet since it forces me to consider every ingredient and to cook from scratch more.
    • LOL, that might put it into perspective if I explain it that way. 
    • I am very interested in this too. My daughter tested negative for celiac, but has terrible primarily neurological symptoms. Because she tested positive for SIBO at the time and was having some GI symptoms, I was told it was just a Fodmap issue.  I knew better and we have been gluten free for 2 years.  Fast forward to this February. She had a SIBO recurrence that I treated at home with diet and herbal antibiotics because I couldn't get the insurance referral. She was doing great. Then stupid me brought in gluten containing chick feed for the new baby chicks we got.   Feed dust everywhere. Total mess.  Really, no GI symptoms (she was SIBO free by then)...but the neurological symptoms! my daughter couldn't walk for three days. Burning down one leg, nerve pain in the foot. Also heaviness of limbs, headache and fatigue. Better after three days. But unfortunately she had a TINY gluten exposure at that three day mark and had another severe reaction: loss of balance, loss of feeling in her back and arms, couldn't see for a few seconds, and three days of hand numbness, fatigue, concentration problems.  Well, I actually contacted Dr. Hadjivassilou by email and he confirmed that the symptoms are consistent with gluten ataxia but any testing would require a gluten challenge. Even with these exposures, antibodies would not be high enough.  His suggestion was maintain vigilance gluten free.  I just saw my daughter's GI at U of C and she really only recognizes celiac disease and neurological complications of that. But my impression is that gluten ataxia is another branch in the autoimmune side of things (with celiac and DH being the other two).   At this point, I know a diagnosis is important. But I don't know how to get there. We homeschool right now so I can give her time to heal when she is accidentally glutened, I can keep my home safe for her (ugh, that I didn't think of the chicken feed!)  But at some point, she is going to be in college, needing to take exams, and totally incapacitated because of an exposure.  And doctors state side that are worth seeing?  Who is looking at gluten ataxia in the US?
    • Caro..............monitoring only the TSH to gauge thyroid function is what endo's do who don' t do a good job of managing thyroid disease.  They should do the full panel and check the actual thyroid hormone numbers.........T3 and T4. The importance of the TSH comes second to hormone levels. In order to track how severely the thyroid is under attack, you need to track antibody levels.......not the TSH. I did not stay with endocrinologists because I found they did not do a very good job and found much greater help and results with a functional medicine MD.  You should not have a goiter if your thyroid is functioning well and your TSH is "normal".  Maybe they should do a full panel? Going gluten free can have a profound affect for the better on thyroid function and that is something that is becoming more and more accepted today.  Ask most people with Celiac and thyroid disease and they will tell you that. My thyroid never functioned well or was under control under after I discovered I had Celiac and went gluten free.  It was the only way I got my antibody numbers back down close to normal and they were around 1200 when it was diagnosed with Celiac.  I was diagnosed with Hashi's long before the Celiac diagnosis.  I am not sure Vitamin D has anything to do with thyroid antibodies but who knows?  Maybe it does have an affect for the better. It is really hard to get Vitmain D levels up, depending on where you live. Mine are going up, slowly, even after 12 years gluten-free but I live in the Northeast in the US and we don't have sun levels like they do in the South.  I take 5,000 IU daily and that is a safe level to take, believe it or not.  I get no sun on my job so the large dose it is! Having Celiac Disease should not stop you from being able to travel, especially S. America. I travel, although I do agree that some countries might be very difficult to be gluten free in. You can be a foodie and travel with Celiac so no worries on that front. You may not be able to sample from someone else's plate, unless they are eating gluten-free too but I have had awesome experiences with food when traveling so you can too!
