Thanks Irish! :) The zucchini that I got given to me were enormous and the pancake recipe came nowhere near using them up! I will check those out.

 

I used to work in South Florida--I did a 9 month missionary project down in the Florida Keys. While I was there I stayed on Grassy Key, about 6 miles from the town of Marathon.

By zoodles, do you mean zucchini noodles? I do have a spiralizer that makes zucchini pasta. :)

Yummy zoodles....I eat them with all kinds of sauce or butter and garlic....good stuff! Recently replaced my large countertop spirilizer with a handlehld little one that works great with less clean up...shaped like two cones with their tips joined...I think I may have linked to it before...will check when back on laptop.

Glad you had a great time Addie, but if I head to salt lake anytime soon it'll be to snowbird and alta, perhaps a day at brightstar (oldest son's first day on skis was there at three years old...we have loads of fun memories in Utah). Hubs and I used to stay in a tiny hotel in Heber city for 10-12 days for 22 bucks a night with a kitchenette...even before celiac...we always wanted a kitchen when we traveled to save money...and then drove to all the resorts from Park City to Snowbird...skipped deer park their lift tickets were much more expensive....man I miss those trips! Once the Olympics were there the prices never came back down :(

People have been talking about how they want the summer Olympics here. I see some of those slideshows of the abandoned, awful places after the Olympics are over and how everything falls apart and nothing ever gets used again. That just didn't happen here so people are pretty eager to do the summer thing. Even though I wasn't here when Utah hosted the winter Olympics, I really hate the idea. The spillover of tourists and traffic will come all the way down to me I'm sure, and my husband uses the freeway to travel to work every day. I could skip the whole thing. Of course, I skip the whole snow thing too. :P

 

Besides all the normal geek stuff I did that I was (and still am) super excited about, I did some new things too. There is a local (to Utah) dance theater group called Odyssey Dance Theatre that does a show called Thriller every Halloween that I always mean to go to but forget to get tickets until they sell out. They did a shortened version of the show there on two days, which was incredible. It's part dance, part theater, and all awesome. The Salt Lake Pops Orchestra did an hour long show to end the night Friday night. It was entirely popular geek movie and TV show music. So besides just being a geek I got some culture too. ^_^

 

Tonight I'll make battered fish and probably tater tots. No matter how crappy I'm still feeling, cleaning up after three days has to be on my to-do list and so does sewing so I'll be working for at least part of my day and don't want to put to much effort into supper. I'm also just counting down til I get incredibly sick with what my husband is finally getting over. He loves to share. <_<

Lentil soup (with kale and rainbow quinoa in it for a little variation) and hopefully either homemade bread or pull apart dinner rolls, whichever I get around to making this afternoon.

Hubs took me out for lunch today.  Went to the Roosters place.  I talked to the Kitchen Mgr., as usual, and they use sauces and seasoning on the grill.  He offered to clean a section of grill for me to make my chicken.  So thankful to this Manager.  He went beyond what I expected  :D   Had a wonderful Chicken Cesar Salad.   Yummmmm

i make zucchini lasagne that is delicious and easy - just make like you would 'normally' make lasagne except sub zucchini sliced thin lengthwise for noodles.  it takes longer to cook, depending on how soft you like your 'noodles'  :)

I'm dining out of my go bag. Mom was transferred from hospital to rehab and caught a nasty bug along the way...so I'm sticking with her for now until her lungs clear.

So almonds, Justin's chocolate almond butter, astronaut veggie/fruit squeezes along with tons of coffee ;)

PS...I think Sandie dog has a future as a therapy dog...she has been making folks here in the rehab/skilled nursing facility happy all day.....even had a nice fellow become animated and tell us a great old doggie joke...will share later.

That was nice of him, but honestly, I liked him  as Puddy.

Waffle iron hash browns is a brilliant idea....I think I'll throw some shredded sweet potato in my iron when I get home today.

Thanks Ruth :)

I threw a whole chicken with a bunch of fresh rosemary and a bit of broth in KFG before I left to check on mom this morning. I should be home to move it from frig to counter, but if not the guys can do it between school and work so we will all have an easy hot dinner.

Don't forget to tell those you love that you do...today.

Love you guys ;)

I've tried them with sweet potatoes and somehow they don't come out the same. But russet potatoes work well!

I shred up russet potatoes and toss them with olive oil and salt and them cook until brown and crispy in my waffle iron.

I posted this a couple of weeks ago.  Its different things to cook in a waffle iron.  I think they used tator tots for convience.

I know I saw one with tator tots but this is the basic idea of using your own potatoes

I think I might pick up a steak tonight.  I saw they have an Outback Steakhouse near me and it seems like they are very gluten friendly and have good procedures in place!  If not, I can pick one up at the grocery store and broil it---just not the same as grilled steak though.

I like your kitty Kat, K. (and you think I don't notice). Also like your quote--good one. ;)

 

Don't forget to tell those you love that you do...today.

 

 

I :wub:  you. I am thinking about you and your Mom and sending hugs.

 

 

 

Okee dokee, this evening is shaping up to be pizza night. (what? you say! but it is not Friday night!) I know. I know.

 

but my friend with the G F bakery sent me some nice fresh flour mix and it makes terrific pizza shells and rolls.

 

Baking later and well, if the dough  is right there, rising and all, I figure.....

I've been to Outback a few times over the last couple years and never had a problem. Of course, every location has the potential to be very different but hopefully you'll have a good experience. :)

 

I think tonight I'm going to finally get to that orange sauce I picked up last week at the Asian market. I'll make orange chicken tonight. Yay!!! There really is nothing quite like homemade, "breaded" nuggets of meat deep fried to perfection. We'll have some sort of rice and veggie with it of course. I think I still have half a bag of peas and carrots in the freezer and could make a nice fried rice for myself. mmmmmmm......

I prefer a gluten free friendly place myself.     :D   

 

Outback is a gluten free friendly place.  I think they were trained by GIG?  Not sure.  You could check the GIG site.  Part of what makes them safer is that the steaks, baked potatoes, green beans, etc don't normally have gluten in them for any diner.

Dad came to see mom so I ran home for real food and to take care of other details of life.

Wanted fresh food so ended up grating two yams...out of sweet potato :(

Then I squeezed the hell out of them in a tea towel...used butter in the iron then threw the grated yam and garlic salt on top...worked great!

Just sitting down to a yamwaffle cheeseburger...thanks ladies!

    • This could be related to nutrient deficiencies such as multip B-vitamins, magnesium, primarily with some others to consider like vitamin D E and iron. But my concern with be diabetes also, it is a fact that diabetes and celiac go hand in hand often. AND if you eat gluten free processed food often you are eating a ton more starch, carbs, and sugars then you need to which could make this worse. I would really suggest seeing a doctor about this as it seems to be a really serious issue. Discoloration is a blood flow issue normally.....this could lead to complications and loss/amputation of you your extremities. Again my main concern would be diabetes, if you want to help keep track of this get a glucose monitor from walmart and check you blood glucose before and a at the 30, 60, 90, 120min mark after a meal for a week monitor the results and see about taking them to a doctor. If your seeing large spikes and drops between and after meals this could be a sign of something. (again observational data not a doctor here  but info to help). You can try supplementing B-vitamin complexes and magnesium also help but PLEASE talk to a doctor on this issue. Change to a whole foods only diet for awhile and see about cutting out processed foods, sugars, and going easy on the carbs.
    • Celiac disease is a bit like a chameleon in symptoms with over 500 known combinations (someone else said this number). It being a autoimmune disease it would not be unheard of it effecting the lymph nodes and in fact early on my first signs of a CC was tightening and swelling of the ones in my neck. I have not noticed this with my past few encounters in the past 2 years. But as I said it is a chameleon in symptoms. You will need to be eating gluten daily for about 12 weeks for the celiac blood panel which is the standard for testing with this disease. And keep eating it for 2 weeks prior to a follow endoscope and biopsy to check for intestinal damage. You can read up more in the link http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
    • Hi there, I was recently diagnosed with Celiac after having dramatic weight loss, extreme fatigue, digestive issues, and a variety of other things. The blood test and biopsy both came back positive so I have been following a strict gluten free diet.  I have been experiencing muscle spasms, frequent face redness all over, and as of lately my toes and fingers have been turning different colours. The most concerning would be my toes as they will go purple. Each toe looks like it has a bruise on it. Is this symptomatic of celiac? I followed up with my family doctor but his only suggestion was to see a dietician, and out I went.  My antibody came back positive, and the titre was high and speckled. Is this related to the celiac? Not much has been explained to me, and I am just trying to understand further! If anyone has any advice, or comments I would be glad to read them!    Thank you  
    • You should get the lymph nodes checked. You need to be eating a regular gluten containing diet to get the best & most accurate results for celiac disease.
