A New Dawn

Sunday, August 28, 2011

Today’s is one of that good day’s that sneaks up on you. My head feels like it’s draining whatever cancerous material swimming in my veins. I feel like my energy level is up to, and I can concentrate a bit better. These days use to be rare, but I’m happy God granted me the people and the knowledge to finally get better. It’s been to long, but I think know things will work out in the long run. It’s good to feel like to be on the right track.

Come Here Fishy Fishy Fishy

I love fishing, it’s in my blood. Feeling a little tug on the line and it fighting back sends the adrenaline going. So it’s funny watching River Monster’s. “He’s got the fish!! YES YES YES YES, noooo… It got loose. He’s got another one! It’s on the shore! IT’S HUGE!!!” I love this show. Now it’s time to get my own fishing rod…

Hurricane + Food Allergies = Hopefully No Worries

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

With hurricane season upon us and a lovely tropical storm that didn’t want to go away, it’s time to think about hurricane preparation. You have to think about the usual: batteries, flashlights, portable tv/ dvd blue-ray player, propane stove, ya da ya da ya da… All the great stuff everybody thinks about, including the Red Cross and even ehow!

But what do you do if you have food allergies, or are some type of restrictive diet? Going between food safety, and getting a serious reaction isn’t something anyone wants to go through. It’s much easier to just have an excuse to indulge in junk food, and worry about the pounds (and no reactions) later. Hey, it’s kind of a stressful time. Who knows when the power will come on, the roads will become passable again, or the sweet sound of the ac will come back on again. Even in the crazy heat, memories of eating cheetos, oreos, chips, will bring a smile to my face. Those were the good times, but now they are over.

Being on a gluten free/candida diet does provide its challenges. Then a hurricane comes and throws everything in a bigger loop hole. In all seriousness no one wants to get sick. Ginger Lemon Girl found a great article about being prepared for a hurricane. Who would have thought of dehydrating your own food? It’s safe, and you know exactly what’s in them. Another problem during a hurricane is that I can’t eat many of the canned or prepackaged food (except maybe potato chips). But baking and secondly cooking is something I like to do, so I plan to use what ever know how to make it pain free through a storm.

If a storm may come my way, I have already devised a little list of things to make. Things like crackers, cookies (don’t say a word), bread, and cereal will be on priority list. Buying fresh fruits and vegetables are always a good idea to. I am also blessed that my father magically had a propane stove pop up after our last hurricane, so we can cook some food if needed. Little things such as hot rice will make one’s tummy happy. Other dishes I’m thinking about making ahead of time and freezing are lasagna or macaroni and cheese. Getting a block of dry ice will help keep everything fresher longer, but it’s not high on my priority list. Then there’s plenty of water and whatever type of drink someone wants. In the end, I think we’ll be good for a hurricane.

The first post...

I always wanted to start a blog, but never actually got around to doing it. Last night, I said what the heck, and here I am typing away. So something I need to be doing is to make things nice and pretty and what ever comes to mind, but I can always do that later. For now, it'll be random things I think about or stumble upon, aka anything fun. Time to start on a brave new world!
