Ski, my sweet...You know I don't lie....this french onion soup is fantastic. YUM indeed. :)

 

lol.....J says: Tell the girls....it's "deliciouso".

That's his best compliment....well, that and licking the spoon and the bowl and giving my some hugs and lovins.  ^_^

and happily cleaning up....

Thanks for the great idea and J's wholehearted approval. My hubs and I made a deal when we met...whomever cooks doesn't clean...on nights we both cooked, we both cleaned up....until the boys were big enough to take over...same deal if they cook the rest of us clean up...when they were little and were bickering during KP...we went to an every other night routine...now that they are out with work, school or friends many nights the system is a bit clunky.

You're funny! I shouldn't complain. He helps me cook frequently so it isn't like I'm alone in the kitchen doing all the work. And if I nag hard enough ask nicely I can get him to put the dry dishes away. :lol:

I'm cooking a chicken tonight. In all my 32 years of life, I have never cooked a chicken before. But my kitty cat is part of the family and I want him to have homemade food too sometimes. So I'm taking the plunge and hoping that the chicken turns out okay. And considering that the cat is the only one who's going to eat it (and I've never seen him salt and herb a wild animal before eating it) he probably shouldn't be too hard to please. :P

 

Initially, I was going to buy the cat an organic chicken until I saw the price tag of $20. So I bought him a free range chicken for $5. Hopefully he enjoys it.

I used to prepare plain roast chicken so that the dog (who had IBS) could eat with us.

so funny....my Dad's rule was "whomever cooks does not clean" LOL

He was often the first parent home from work, so he started dinner. We all helped, set the table, cut the veggies, etc.

We kids usually cleared, put away the "encores" lol and washed and put away the dishes. No machine dishwasher back then.

We all had chores. And my SIL is grateful to have a hubs like my brother who  cleans, grocery shops, runs the laundry through and makes awesome sauce and meatballs. I think he's probably the best "wife" of us all.  ^_^

I did bake it. It seems to have gotten done, as the juices ran clear. The cat didn't eat very much though. Do you think that it was the texture? Should I grind it up some? The cat was hanging out at the door purring as it was cooking and hubby theorized that he could smell it cooking.

yes, bake that chicken. easy peasy.

 

Edited: you posted as I did, Ruth...Okay, saw you had baked it....do not worry about the "texture"....he will eat it. They don't eat much at one time.

and go get a haircut today. I'm still debating how much I'll get cut off. I might go crazy and go all the way up to my shoulders, I'm feeling adventurous. :blink:

If you donated enough, I hope you managed to get it donated to a charity that makes wigs for cancer patients. (Sorry, but that topic hits rather close to home right now)

Those look nice. I might try them. I just don't really need to eat them....

How about you try making them, and I will eat them for you?

Or maybe dinner was too good and he was too full from such a good dinner to move. (Kinda like women like to say "I shouldn't be able to get up and make a sandwich after we 'do it'."<-------and no I'm not saying I expect a sandwich.)

I did get it cut all the way up to my shoulders. It was quite a bit off, but not nearly enough to donate. Only about 4 or 5 inches. You have to have 10 inches cut off to donate it. I'd be bald if I cut that much off. :ph34r: Shoulder length is extremely short for me, and as short as I'm willing to ever go. It's layered and super adorable, I love it. I'm not having any of the cut lots off regrets like I sometimes do.

 

Well, other than finishing the jerky in the dehydrator and cutting up the cheese and separating it and the crackers and pepperoni out into baggies we're ready. Oh, and I still have to do my mani tomorrow but I didn't want to have a chance to chip it so I was waiting til the last minute. I was disappointed today when I stopped in the Asian market down in Provo and they didn't sell the pad Thai sauce I like, but they had an orange sauce in the same brand. The owner of the store recommended a different brand of pad Thai but when I explained that the reason I bought the one I did was because it was gluten-free she said she'd start carrying it again. :D I was worried I'd have to start making my own. :lol:

It's a running thing with the people in their 20's...post "doing it"....man: "make me a sandwich"....woman: "if you would 'do it' right, I wouldn't be able to move to make you a sandwich."....I guess I just showed my age there

Sorry if this sounds gross...but if your kitty is a hunter, she may like her chicken baked on the rare side ;)

For breakfast this morning, we're having oven roasted veggies and Beyond Meat chicken free strips with rice. My kids don't always eat regular breakfast foods like oatmeal very well so sometimes it's easier just to fix something else that they enjoy more. And hey, if my kids want veggies for breakfast, all the more power to them. LOL!

 

We had a late night last night finishing an Ebay sale, so we're sleeping in a bit before starting homeschool this morning.

    • Thank you so much. 8-12 weeks! Oh my goodness, I don't think I can do that. I think going gluten-free made my body's defenses go down or something. I felt bad before, but reintroducing it was completely awful! I still feel queezy a few days later. Let's pray it just comes back positive. lol
    • Thanks for the feedback!  Gemini you're very right - surgery was a totally weird recommendation.  My current doctor treated me without hormones because my TSH levels are normal. The doctor found that my Vitamin D levels were severely low and put me on a high dose. They climbed just out of the deficient range. I am very active and frequently outdoors,  and they still only climb out of deficient If i'm on intensive VIitamin D supplementation.  -  In addition, She also suggested I  a modified lower carb diet (I'm at a healthy weight, there was no reduction in calories, just an increase in protein and fat and a reduction in carbs,  a low reduction, slightly above the recommendations for a diabetic), which the doctor recommended for PCOS.  Both of these coincided correlated with a slight reduction in the anti-thyroid antibodies and a slight reduction in nodule size. My TSH levels have remained stable, so it was incorrect to say function, really just a reduction in the level of attack (but the thyroid levels are still high).  The doctor that recommended surgery did so because "you're about to start college and you won't have time for monitoring,  it will eventually fail. If we remove it now, you can just go on Synthroid and you'll never have to deal with the levels being out of whack."  Yeah.... I was 18 then.... I'm now 27, but my Mom just went "NOPE!" and got a second opinion.  This person was fine, but all he did was monitor to make sure the TSH levels stayed ok.  They did, I just have a goiter and several nodules.  The most recent endo. I've seen, who put me on intensive Vitamin D therapy and worked with me on the diet,  felt like she was thorough (again minus completely dismissing the first celiac results. I think the D supplementation and diet were associated with a decrease (but obviously didn't and really couldn't reverse the outcome of the disease) in antibodies and nodule size because my TSH levels have yet to get out of whack. I also wonder if with fewer carbs, I ate less (thought still too much If I'm celiac) gluten, and  that could have been more a factor in the correlation.  Gemini- I'm glad that you have found a good treatment that keeps your levels where they need to be!  I also really appreciate the welcome. Update:  I have a referral to a GI specialist! I don't want to have Celiac... I love to travel, and I'm very social. I live in the US but my family is from Uruguay, South America, so I carry this Latin Cultural thing about loving to share food and seeing it as such a huge part of hospitality and community.  I know that food in social settings gets hard to navigate...But I feel a sense of relief to think that I might have an answer to other health questions and that there is a way that I can stop or at least slow damage.   
    • These can be sourced from various ingredients one being wheat. Please check with the manufacture of your products to figure out if they contain gluten or how they are made....and yes gluten in your makeup, and especially lotion, shower gel, etc is a huge issues. Consider this, gluten contamination can happen from gluten protein residue. How often would you touch your arms, hair, etc or use your hands and touch your food, plate, fork, spoon before putting it in your mouth? Do you bite your nails, sometimes pick up a mint or gum? Hate to say it this way but if you use gluten containing stuff like that shit will happen with cross contamination. Consider changing over to a dedicated gluten-free version of hygiene products and save your self the drama. I use EO products, The Seaweed Co, Savvy Naturals, Hugo Naturals, and Vaseline products products without issues personally.       
    • I had an enlarged thyroid, but no nodules. Dr felt it and ultrasound confirmed. I had so many symptoms of hypothyroid- weight gain, fatigue, hoarse voice-couldn't yell or sing or swallow (still can't swallow, but mostly at the bottom end. Used to not be able to get it past my neck, either) brain fog so that I couldn't form a complete sentence or respond with any timeliness, cold all the time, etc. Dr was in his 70's and old school. He didn't do any further blood tests or anything. Just said to take iodine. So, I started taking iodine. By the next year, different dr, all my thyroid tests came back normal, it wasn't enlarged anymore and most of my symptoms were very much improved. Read "Iodine: Why you need it and can't live without it" Kinda boring and repetitive, but good info. Iodine Crisis by Lynne Farrow is also really good. (She talks more about breast cancer than thyroid. But, the iodine information & history is great.)

    • Ok can anyone please shed light on this subject! I been reading conflicting information. Do I really need to be concerned about products that contain these two ingredients in them like my face products and my body lotions and shower gels?  If I'm not ingesting them can they really hurt me?  Only been diagnosed for three weeks with celiac and I'm trying so hard to follow the guidelines but this seems to be a gray area.  I also check on the list of unsafe ingredients and I don't see them listed there so whats the scoop?  Safe or unsafe please help!!!!
