So, all of my bloodwork came back normal. I figured that would happen. Anyway, what that means is one of a few options 1) I still have Celiac's, but the antibodies hadn't built up in my system enough to show up on the test due to being gluten-fr... Read more
Wow, I made the greatest tasting meal for dinner tonight. I was literally licking the plate afterward. I made a Cuban style pork and beans dish loosely based on this meal from recipezaar. www.recipezaar.com/Gator beks-Cuban-Pork-Black-... Read more
Our DVR is having issues. Maybe it doesn't like 24, or Lost, or other things, but it seems to randomly decide not to work. Unfortunately, this means that we miss watching things when are meant to watch them. Not cool. It makes my husband kind of... Read more
My weekly meal plan, for my own purposes and anyone interested. I've finally solved my lunch/dinner dilemma, which I've never discussed before. Essentially, Bill eats a 500 calorie dinner, and I would prefer 300 cals because I have to eat more t... Read more
My doctor's appointment went as I expected. I spent about 3 min. talking to the doctor about thing I already know, and went and got blood drawn, and will get the results next week. I'm incredibly glad the wheat thing is over, because last night ... Read more
I know, it has been a while.
So, first thing's first, why has it been a while 1) I am sometimes a busy person and 2) I'm doing a gluten challenge. So, my whole wheat thing is getting exciting, because I finished my double blind study which ... Read more
I was MIA yesterday, but I've eaten a lot of great food lately, so I have a few recipes to share.

Wow, it is time for a serious update. Last week was a little bit nuts, I was out 3/5 nights, which made dinner and exercise more difficult, but still accomplished. I was at the dinner and a movie party with a quinoa dish in a white wine sauce th... Read more
I'm working on that leisurely breakfast, or at least I haven't done breakfast to the sounds of the Today Show all week. It is an interesting experience.
This week has been nuts, but I've mostly been sticking with my exercise and eating plan... Read more
i did not get a chance to blog yesterday, and won't get a chance tonight, so you all get a mid-day blog, yay! You could also call it a procrastination blog.
I made my own Greek-style yogurt! It looked a little scary at first with all the wh... Read more
First of all, life update: I didn't end up having a movie night on Friday ... it's next Friday. Yeah, I know, I do things like that, but we managed, got to come back and watch all our tv shows which we wouldn't have had time for, so I'm cool. Sa... Read more

I'm going to get an early start on my blog because I am on Day 2 of the double-blind study, and who knows what will happen later. Part of me hopes nothing, part of me something. I am trying really hard not to think about it at all, which is of c... Read more
I have a new love in my life: fennel seeds. These babies are the secret to italian cooking, and the reason sausages taste like sausages. I can't believe it took me this long to discover fennel.
I used the fennel in my Americanized goulash ... Read more
Tonight I started a double-blind study on myself. I know that's impossible, my husband helped. We sorted out two sets of bags of either rice or wheat flour so that neither one of us knows which one I'm eating until we compare both keys. It's kin... Read more
