Gracie wandered the woods in NY and never had a single flea. None of the cats either.....until the last year we were there.Started seeing fleas

on our feet as we walked on the carpet. Dang! so, what happened?

 

 

We had used Frontline for years, then Advantage. Then, the flea infestation.
 
Our vet encouraged us to switch up treatments. She felt they could lose effectiveness, 
 
We have to use Revolution now---Florida comes with a different set of rules for pets apparently---

and heartworm is a bigger issue here.Just a suggestion.

 

Dinner last night was ice cream. And a cookie. 

 

I am hoping for more sustenance today, but it depends on how well i can swallow....Soup may be the answer. 

 

note to self: don't sip from the same water bottle as the hubs when he says "I think my allergies are kicking up"

 

That wasn't your " allergies',  dude.  <_< ah well....this, too shall pass.  ^_^

Went to the grocery store for milk and they had Nut Thins on sale so I got those, $2.50/box :D.  Now that most of the new labels are on the shelves, It sure was quicker picking out foods today.  I didn't get much but everything I picked up said Gluten Free right on the label.

Made chicken breasts marinaded in Walden Farms Bacon Ranch dressing--gluten-free and NO calories :D.  and then breaded with some bread crumbs I made from the ends of my Udi bread.  Nummy.

 

Hubs made cupcakes from a King Arthur (I think) box mix.  They are a little dry but not bad.  I got some Cream Cheese frosting to put on them.

I was rather under the weather for a few days. The weather overnight Friday night was stormy and when I got up Saturday I wasn't even sure if it would clear enough for me to go to the market since I don't use a canopy. But it cleared up enough for me to see blue sky over the lake to the west so I headed down. The weather turned out perfect too! Except that it was so cool and perfect it didn't occur to me not to stand in the sun like a moron all day, so I got burnt and ended up sick from it too. Derp. It's easy to forget that sunburn can happen just as fast in cool weather just as it cools off. Lesson learned.

 

But I'm feeling much better, so tonight was taco night. Tomorrow is fish n chips night. I think I'll make some rolls or biscuits or something tomorrow too. And chocolate chip cookies. I'm enjoying this new ATK cookbook way too much. ^_^

Tonight we are having:

Zucchini ribbons with roasted garlic and tomatoes

Sweet and spicy meatballs

Fresh Balkans feta with lashings of Istria olive oil, olives, tomatoes and capers

Now am off to pick figs and wild blackberries!

I told these guys I heard from you a few times and that you were transitioning well to your new home, but it's not the same as having you here  "back at the dinner table" with us  :D

xxoo 

 

Still feeling lousy, Going to make soup in the slow cooker....right after this short nap.

LOVE2  :D   So happy to see you again.  I love googleing what you food is  :lol:  :lol:  I do hope you have a guest house for all of us to come and visit?  Or at least a big tent !!  I would love to see a bit of Croatia, can you email some pics?  It sounds like you are feeling better out of that bitter cold, Hooray for that!

 

For Dinner?  I gave up food.  I only drink coffee now so I might be able to use the facilities..... :ph34r:

They're right, it is good to have you back! Seeing what you're having is always an inspiration to try new and interesting things.

 

A few ears of red corn were ready out in the garden so we'll be adding those to dinner tonight. First picked of the year. It has such an amazing flavor that isn't like any other corn we've ever had (which is why we planted this kind) and we can't wait for it to be time to eat tonight and it's still barely past noon! ^_^

I've never heard of red corn..sounds really good!!

 

I have ribs out for dinner.  Hubs will be home really late so I may do two batches of them so they are fresh when he gets home.

Red corn sounds cool...can't remember where I heard someone was making "Christmas Enchiladas" with red corn tortillas...oh ya, it was on the funnypages from a grade school friend.

Tonight is Baked fish and veggie foil packets with a new dressing I picked up on sale 'Mango Chipoltle'.

Mango slices on the side.

Needed to leave the house today, so went to the store for a watermelon as a consolation prize. It'll be a perfect dessert for the night. The weather is delightful. Cloudy, cool, breezy. Couldn't be better. B)

Not sure what I'm going to make tonight.  Hubs has been working really late all week so I might just skip making anything tonight and just eat whatever :D

Chicken Stir fry.  Wanted to try the San-J Thai peanut sauce but the grocery didn't have it.  Will have to try to make something myself. I never write down how much of what I put in and then - if its yummy - I can't remember what I did the last time!  Probably just melt a little PB and mix with soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, a few pepper flakes, maybe a splash of rice vinegar....

 

Kids are both at college now.  I am trying to use up stuff I have.  Went to the grocery and didn't get any chocolate milk or gatorade or crackers....  Sort of odd.   :unsure:

Kinda odd is right.  Last I went shopping I put his Peach Snapple in the cart, then almost cried.  Skipped the frozen food section all together.  Interesting thing is we talk on the phone more often then we ever talked when he was here.  Don't know if I'll ever get over him being on his own.

 

Hubs put a roast in the KFG, it smells good already  :D

Thank you!  It is nice to be back.  We have now had the internet up and running for a consecutive week!  Yay!!  :D

 

Colleen, of course... if you would like Croatia pictures, I would be happy to email you some, if I am able to choose from the 873,601,274 we have! 

 

Hopefully you are all healthy and back to your normal selves.  :)

 

Tonight is:

 

Roasted chicken breasts with slow-roasted tomato, red pepper and onion sauce.  Chicken pounded thinly to cook evenly and to prevent from drying out.

Herb-roasted cauliflower

Cucumber coleslaw

Fresh blackberry tart which I am about to make.  :)

 

Yes, I am still in the honeymoon phase here :wub: but it is so marvelous to have access to such amazing fresh foods here!  I love foraging for berries.  I would like to for all sorts of mushrooms, too, but will hold off until I can go with someone who knows what they are doing.  And white truffle season begins in about a month...sigh...my weakness!  ^_^  Well, one of my weaknesses!  :lol:

Something has been setting off my stomach the past couple days.  I don't know if it's gluten or just maybe a bug of some kind??  I haven't eaten out, house is gluten-free so no idea what it could be.  Only thing I can think of is maybe Rice Chex and maybe I just can't do rice for a while??  I've had rice chex with peaches the past couple days, Udi bread with peanut butter (that was new and not exposed to gluten stuff), Ore Ida hash browns--says gluten-free on the bag, BBQ ribs--BBQ sauce says gluten-free but I do a rub of a BBQ spice mix that is gluten-free and brown sugar.  Is brown sugar not gluten-free????

Yes.  Brown sugar is gluten-free.  Unless its left-over from gluten baking and might have had measuring cups traveling from the flour into the sugar?

 

There are a lot of ingredients in all those foods -Chex, Udi's, BBQ sauce, etc.  Hard to figure out what might be an issue.  Maybe try less processed foods for a few days?  I don't know what it is about gluten-free breads, gums maybe?  But I can't eat them everyday or my system gets "off".  Ore Ida potato products I could eat everyday......  and I have the thighs to prove it!   :lol:

Brown sugar I just opened to make the ribs and since opening is in a brand new storage container so that should be ok.  I forgot coffee and coffee creamer, N-joy brand fake creamer but it says gluten-free online so who knows.  The coffee is "Donut House" , not flavored, Keruig stuff.  It's also hard to know if it's a response right away to what I'm eating--so the rice chex or peaches, or from last night, ribs and potatoes.  I LOVE Ore-Ida french fries and hash browns :D.  Did you know they sell chopped frozen onions too :D.

I use that Keruig coffee! I have been using the frozen onions for .........my whole life!

Anyway..... I am back to - cut out the processed, multi- ingredient stuff for a couple of weeks and see if you feel better. Then add them in one at a time.

Awesome!!

Just picks up a few pounds of thick and along with a few pounds of regular sliced....whatever shall I do?

Hey where is our bacon dancing dude?

Dinner is fresh yellowtail...I can't eat it even seared of late so made some interesting dipping sauce for my sashimi slices. Hubs is eating light with me and then off to ride around the city in an unruly mob...just kidding...I just don't enjoy ridding in groups...too nerve racking. Just slightly bummed the monthly critical mass ride fell on a Friday night that I feel human and the younger men are all busy....oh well will plan a date night again later.

Oh hey...I do have a date...my new puppy I found while on a bunny hunt ;)

Happy Friday Dinner Peeps (will insert lover boy later when on PC)

    • I am wanting to make a mac and cheese recipe that calls for cheddar cheese soup.  Anyone know a substitute for this?  Campbell's has gluten :-(
    • Hey!  I also recently started a gluten free diet because of non Celiac's gluten sensitivity, and as a college student who can't really eat in the dining hall or participate in late night pizza runs, I totally understand where you're coming from. First things first: you probably aren't as much of a burden on people as you think you are. They most likely understand that this is a big transition period for you and will take time. If you are really worried about it,  just talk to them, explain your concern and try to come up with a plan. I have found that if I don't make a big deal about being gluten free, neither will anyone else. The first time or two matter of factly explain that you cannot eat gluten for medical reasons, after that, if someone offers you something you can't eat, I have found it to be best to just respond with a simple "no thanks!" As far as making sure you don't starve, nut based granola bars (such as kind bars) are your best friend. I always try to have one or two handy, especially on trips! ( I like to have savory ones, like Thai chili flavored, that way it feel more like eating real food than sweet flavored ones!) That way, if there is really nothing you can eat, you always have something. I also scoured celiac and gluten free blogs my first few weeks and figured out what fast food places have Celiac's and NCGS friendly options (Chick-fil-A is a good one, I usually get their fries and request that they fry them in their designated gluten free frier, and a side salad, Wendy's is also good, you can get any of their baked potatoes, chili, or side salad with no croutons, there are a lot of other places too, but there are my favorites) I have found that a lot of times there are things that we can eat places, but because Celiac's and especially NCGS is something that has just started to get more attention, most people, even those working at restaurants just aren't familiar with it, and most restaurants do not have a designated gluten free menu. Your smart phone and Google are also great, I am all the time in a  restaurant googling "does (restaurant's dish) have  gluten?" Usually we can eat salads, and burgers and such without buns, but it is always a good idea to just tell your waiter or the person taking your order something to the effect of " hey! I am unable to eat gluten for medical reasons, which means I can't have things made with wheat, rye , or barley, or anything that touches things made with it, I was hoping to have (dish), Which isn't made with any of these things, but was wondering if you could use clean utensils and preparing area, that way I don't get sick! Thank you!" Usually people are more than happy to help, they just don't understand your situation. As far as you feeling like less of an outcast, this transition period has been a great time for me to realize the importance of hanging out with people and enjoying their company, even if you can't fully participate. No one really cares if they are all eating pizza and you are eating a sandwich you brought on gluten free bread. People are going to express concern because they care about you and don't want you to be hungry or feel left out. Whenever someone says something like " oh will you be able to eat anything here?" Or "oh I'm sorry I'm eating (delicious gluten thing)" just not making a big deal out of it and saying something like "oh I'm good anywhere!" (Because you are with your granola bar! Also you can almost always eat salad) Or "no, you enjoy what you like!" Will make you and them feel better. For a while you will feel a little left out, and that is okay, but I have found that I am so much happier when I go on that pizza run with my friends and a granola bar, even if at first you have to fake it till you make it! Good luck! I know it isn't easy, but it does get better!💙💙
    • Anyone who has ever tried to get an official diagnosis for celiac disease has likely experienced one very unpleasant reality: Having to eat wheat for a couple of weeks to make sure the antibody tests are accurate. Currently celiac diagnosis requires gluten consumption. This can be hard for people who have already given up gluten. View the full article
    • Perhaps automated word pull as JMG suggested. It is irrelevant, but I must comment :  Oddly was entertaining for me today (on a rough day) to read this drivel that included celiac bashing . The celiac dis didn't even hurt, for it was from someone who could not formulate a coherent rational  thought  and shared that publicly. At first I wondered what substance the author was on, then I read further to discover more of this odd piece. The author is all over the place. The piece is also laced with a poorly excuted, back handed attempt to express judgement , anger, and veiled hate in a masked arrogant self subscribed Christian label.  Sure the author  makes a point of shaming the offenders who dropped off the offensive clothes. If the author were perhaps more coherent and a better writer the piece could be borderline offensive or effectively shameful. Alas it is neither.  I however felt sorry  not for the donation facility , the homeless , or the readers, but felt sorry for the author . The author clearly has a lot of self hate, anger, low self esteem, poorly hidden beneath a false facade of uppityness, narcissism, arrogance, while identifying /self labeling as a Christian.  I very rarely get to read a piece where I can play/exercise my brain as lay person couch psychologist . This piece lends itself to that perfectly. I went to the link and read the comments below the article from the real people who express how best to give to those in need, where, and how appropriately. So all was not lost. The right people commented kindly, respectfully, logically, in a helpful guiding way and without hate or shame. So regardless of how admin got this article here - most of us should skip this for the rest of us  bored enough or seeking an odd entertainment piece that does not relate to celiac , let's hope the author gets the help they need as a disgusting gluten-free sandwich has more to offer to society. 😉 Lol  
    • Hi Gemma, Welcome to the very select, exclusive, super secret club of NCGS (or I if you like), where you get all the fun of living the gluten free diet with the added scepticism of half the medical establishment and most of the general public   If you're interested in learning more, there's some good resources collected here:  Feel free to add or just post there if you like.  It's great that the diet is working for you. The emotional side is difficult no doubt. It does get easier, trust me, for you and those around you also. You get better at planning, at coping, at working around it etc. The availability of safe foods and wider knowledge continues to improve year on year.  I've barely been back to Germany, one of my favourite countries, since going gluten-free but take some comfort in the fact that its always harder in a different country with a language barrier as well, but even so there's hope: https://foursquare.com/top-places/berlin/best-places-glutenfree-food https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurants-g187323-zfz10992-Berlin.html You maybe need to accept there's a level of preplanning needed now that wasn't there before and if you do that you can still be spontaneous in other ways? Expect some setbacks, at times its ok to cry. Or, er happen to get something in your eye if you're a strapping bloke who should know better  Keep a good supply of nice safe snacks and treats at close hand. In your car/bag/pocket. Eat well before you go out. Have your freezer well stocked with nice safe food and your fridge too. Get to know what easy safe options are available, Are you in the UK? Join Coeliac.org and they'll send you the brilliant guide which will unlock so many safe, cheap foods, also available as an app. And post here, lots of good people with advice and support. Best of luck, Matt
