Endoscopy # 2

4 Mar

If I would’ve known that being diagnosed with Crohns disease would lead me to a endoscopy and colonoscopy every 3 years, I would’ve walked into the ocean and never looked back. (once is more than enough for a lifetime) It’s not that having the procedure is horrible (at least where I go because they put you to sleep) it’s the cameras. They reuse them and they are interchangeable. So what’s in your throat, goes up your butt.

I thought because I was on medi-cal that this happens. It turns out they do this everywhere! People have even gotten really sick from improperly sanitized scopes. I don’t see why they can’t make this situation better. Diagnostic centers can move you in and out like a herd of cattle. And after you had something shut up your butt or down your throat you’re glad to be herded on out of there. But why can’t someone make cameras that are for one part or the other!?

This time I woke up and was not groggy for that long. I was actually hungry afterwards, and my throat wasn’t sore.  The thing that really makes me mad is that the place is in Monterey Park. That’s where a lot of people Chinese decent live, with the REAL good Chinese food. Why does it have to be filled with gluten, and that damn corn starch! It’s like going to Santa Monica and not go to a Japanese restaurant. At least with their cuisine I can have better luck.

Next week is my colonoscopy, again. But this time I don’t know what to do! Cucumber Gatorade doesn’t exist anymore! That was the only flavor that covered up that gosh awful Miralax taste and texture. And BTW, why the hell do some men bitch about doing a colonoscopy ONCE! I swear some men can be pussy ass bitches (sorry but you know by now my site is not for kids)! My daughter had a colonoscopy at 2! Anyways, can anyone out there tell me what Gatorade flavor they use? I can tell you not to use lemon! It was horribly, ugh.

Rankings and Ratings

4 Mar

I saw this on the web and decided to use it as my rankings. I figured it was a good grasp of what I’m trying to get across to you. (as I know my grammar can be rough like course sandpaper) I will of course go higher or lower if need be, but I think this covers it. I can’t stand it when ratings are out of 4 or 5. Like what the H is that!? It’s too close to tell when the range is that small. I don’t know about you, but I can eat something without liking it, and a lot of times I have to. Average means ok, but it also means you can stomach it. When something is nasty I want you to know it and feel it! Like when you eat something nasty and your stomach tells your head it’s not doing this.

Rice and Chicken

3 Mar

Arroz con Pollo is what it’s really called. Just brown the chicken and then add some onion and garlic if you like chopped up of course. Then add in the rice, add enough water or stock and you’re pretty much done. The seaweed is for the salad but if you wanted to get festive you could add it to the chicken. I usually add frozen peas after I add the water. This is for 5 people and everyone gets a leg,  so make a lot of rice!

Chicken: $2.93
Salad: $1.99
Rice: $1.00
Seaweed: .99

Total (rounded up): $7.00

Glutinous Rice Flour

This one makes me want to explore Asian food a lot more. I’ll say this, it’s a thickener but, you have to know what you’re doing. If you don’t know what Oobleck is look it up! Because, if you use too much of this,  that’s what you get.

I made rice balls with this and they were not like mochi,  kinda gummy chewy, but my daughter liked it, so hey it was a plus! I will get some more and put the experiments into the gluten free test kitchen. I found a recipe that calls for rice balls cooked in coconut milk and one for spring roll wrappers.

Pamela’s Pancake & Waffle Mix

This was a huge hell yes from my husband, who’s not gluten free. So that says a lot. My daughter wanted pancakes for Christmas morning (I know,  I’m behind on my post) and I didn’t want to cook. I got this at Whole Foods, it was the only one that didn’t have xanthan gum in it.

They came out like normal looking pancakes. The batter wasn’t liquidity. When the non-gluten eaters in the family like something that is gluten free, you cherish it!  Because when they don’t! THEY’LL LET YOU  KNOW! (I know some of you out there know exactly what I’m talking about!) I made all the whole bag and it feed 5 people completely. When I’m lazy and they’re on sale,  I will definitely be getting this again!
