Last night we went to the big Jazz in the Woods. No food allowed in except for medical reasons. But, as long as people weren't taking in big coolers, no one even checked. I took some nuts, some peppered salami, cheddar, grapes, cantelope, Glutino vanilla covered pretzels. Got som wine, some kettle corn and some more wine there.

Going back tonight. taking a smoked turkey sandwich, Fritos, maybe some fruit. Not sure yet.

That sounds really good!  What brand of salami do you eat?  I'd like to get some for summer picnics on the boat.  The brands that I've looked at in the store, so far, are gluten free.  AND, is all kettle corn gluten-free?  The stuff you buy at fairs and festivals?  Can it be trusted?  I love kettle corn!!

Kettle corn should theoretically be gluten free. It's just (usually) oil, sugar and corn and when I see places that make it at markets, carnivals and fairs it's the only thing they do. Just ask what the ingredients are then enjoy! :)

What Addie said about kettle corn .

I eat several brands of salami - boars head & Columbus are 2 that I can think of.

Food not too appealing today, so I am having a Wendy's vanilla frosty! Putting a chuck roast in the crock pot for tomorrow. I am allergic to cooking on Sunday. Actually, between church and having to travel an hour each way, and then another meeting in town at 4:00, I don't have the time. Our church has food after service but with this new eating deal, that will be out the window! It is taking me a while to adjust, throw the summer time on top of it, when who feels like eating heavy meals and I may have this down by Thanksgiving. LOL

our church has dinners/luncheons and at first, i skipped them.  for, like, a year.  it was just too painful/tempting  :(  now, i just make a big dish of something gluten-free and serve myself first (actually, i take some out before and take it in a separate container to bring with me)  don't be tempted to go ahead and eat:  i play the 'can't eat that' game with myself at these type of functions.  by the time everyone is served, just about every dish is off limits for some reason or another  <_<  even if it started out gluten-free, it doesn't take long for somebody to stick a spoon into it that was just in a pasta dish, lolz   :o   

 

i have no clue what to make for dinner.............................. :huh:

Pork tenderloin on the grill, some baked spaghetti squash, maybe some garlic and EVOO sauteed zucchini noodles.

 

Not very hungry for some reason, but oddly, I want kettle corn now.... ^_^

Is Kettle Corn another name for Pop Corn?  Am I missing out on something?

 

Probably a bug and bacteria laden salad tonight.  The washing machine is busy  :P

kettle corn is just sweetened popcorn.

or this lady recommends

 

"Take a trip to the county fair with a bowl of old-fashioned Kettle Corn. Your family will never want plain popcorn again! If you use white sugar, it will taste like popcorn balls and if you use brown sugar, it will taste like caramel corn."

We are having quesadillas tonight and some sort of chicken tomorrow. I'm not into cooking today.

 

I am having the best day ever though. I woke up to find Final Fantasy 3 on sale, it's a new release for computers and I was so excited I almost threw my wallet at my computer. :lol: I meant to play a little and get a nap. I played 2 hours without realized how much time went by. :ph34r: I think I'll go get a brownie, cup of milk and get that nap I was after.

We are grilling pizza - too hot to warm up the house. I am making some pesto to go on it with some fresh moz, maybe a smidge of pasta sauce.

Last night we had Thai curry with tofu, veggies, and rice noodles. For dessert we had fresh cherries and So Delicious Coconut Milk Ice cream. (the no sugar added variety)

 

It was so good!

 

The only trouble was that the curry was a hot meal for a hot day. I need to come up with cooler meal ideas.

So hard to choose.......

Dogs and cats, of course. I love sea turtles.... But then there are sea otters.... The wrens in the nest on my screened in porch.... And what about dolphins? Orcas? Those are great! Bunnies.... Pterodactyls. - love to see them flying with their funny long legs hanging behind.

Oh wait! Red pandas! Love those little guys. Tried to get my hair dresser to dye my hair that color more than once.

Guinea pigs! Love them! Love the wild versions, like capybaras and rock cavies! Golden lion tamarins ... Oh heck.... All those little monkeys are fun!

I just can't choose! I hope that was helpful! Lol

favorite wild animals... lemurs and wolves

 

Favorite domesticated animal.... dog, rabbit, cat

 

happen to also have 3 guinea pigs.  they just have a hard time being picked up.  You have to wait a very long time for them to climb onto your hand.

Irish is easy, she likes bunnies! And I know Bartfull isn't here to speak for herself but she likes elephants. Both perfectly decent animals for people who aren't into giraffes. :P

I meant to say lemurs, too! Love those guys! I really like giraffes, but Addy had that covered.

I just scooped my piggies up and set them right on a towel and then carried them. They don't like getting picked up but they really hate the feeling of legs dangling and flying , thinking a hawk has them!

Ohhhhh.... Piggies.... Pot bellied piggies, baby piggies......

Am I helping you narrow these animals down, Skilisa?

oh you betcha.....I do love my bunnies! but I am afraid my list would sound much like K's....I am a huge animal lover and it would be difficult to choose

any "favorites"...I love horses very much, dolphins, manatees, sea turtles...and of course, dogs, cats, birds of all species, but I favor finches and hummingbirds--the more exotic the better ... and peacocks!

 

I think the jaguar is stunningly beautiful. And how could you not love pandas? I should stop now. lol

 

so, Ski,  does this backyard project involve an ark? 

 

I am going out to Bonefish for dinner and having that awesome sea bass or salmon with mango salsa and whatever else strikes my fancy. i worked hard around the house this weekend and I just did grueling PT, so I figure, I earned it. :)

    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
    • While you could very well be vitamin/mineral deficient, you could also have issues with your thyroid.  Autoimmune thyroid is common with .......autoimmune celiac disease.  Your doctor should order a full thyroid panel, including thyroid antibodies.   Your blood sugar should also be checked (autoimmune diabetes).  I am not saying you have these issues, but these AI issues are common with celiac disease.  In fact, you can develop or have more than one AI issue.   If I feel a very strong need to nap, I know my thyroid is off and my doctor should be notified.  A simple blood test usually verifies that an adjustment to my thyroid replacement is needed.   That said, you are in the healing stages of celiac disease.   Eat healthy and include plenty of fats to keep you satiated.  Try to avoid processed foods.  Make sure that gluten-free diet is varied and full of veggies.  Get plenty of rest.  Just listen to your body.  Soon you will feel much better.  
    • Hi and welcome Can you tell us a little about your diet? What are you eating on a typical day? You may find that some simple switches in food choices can deliver more energy and fewer spikes and crashes. This is something that receives too little attention, particularly from the medical community. It can come as a huge shock to the system and as the implications become apparent its easy to feel overwhelmed. This certainly happened to me and many others here so first do know that you're not alone. You are currently grieving believe it or not and you will be going through the stages of grief.  Second, although it may not feel it now, it WILL get better and you will adjust and adapt as you get used to the diet and start focusing on what you can still do rather than what you can't.  In the meantime, this is a good place to vent and share those feelings as they are perfectly natural and understandable and whilst not always helpful,  they are a part of you and a part of the healing process. Go easy on yourself, this is very early days. You are young, which is good news, it means you will heal sooner and you will adapt quicker and there's lots of good things on the way for you as your body gets a rest from the gluten that's been holding you back.  All the best!
