Well, I'd love to give some shout-outs to some readers of my blog.. Hey California Lianna Thanks for the comment. You are one lucky lady to have such a fun sister, like Lynn, I just love her!!

Hello to Carol in Florida!! You look like a very hip lady. Glad to be in the same celiac club as you. Thanks for the comment. I am sure we would be friends if we lived closer...

Now I need to tell everyone thank you for reading my blog. It is so fun to hear from everyone. All the comments are very appreciated. Love to all.

So, I made a very yummy soup last night. I will give you the recipe for it because that is what I do...

Mashed potato soup

1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1 Celery Stalk
1 Carrot, grated course
2 Cups chicken broth
pinch of rosemary- crumbled
2 1/2 cups mashed potatoes
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
2 Tablespoons snipped parsley leaves
Salt and Pepper to taste

1.In a large pot cook the onion, celery, and carrot in butter over medium- low heat, stirring until the veggetables are tender.

2.Stir in the broth and rosemary, bring to boil. Wisk in the potatoes, a little at a time, bring the soup to boil again, stirring add the vinegar, parsley and salt and pepper to taste.
Makes 4 servings.


Speaking of beautiful things,
my hand is not! I have the winter spot on my hand. Can Anyone tell me what this is? Is it just exema? I have a really hard time getting rid of it, but it is only there in the winter... never the summer. It's itchy and scaly and looks a bit like a burn before it heals. I think it is the dry cold in Idaho that makes it this way. It could also be a reaction to gluten or something. Let me know your thoughts.

Hey, Glutten free girl...found your blog through a common friend. My daughter gets exema and your "winter spot" sounds just like it. Try Aquaphor or cetephil or some other type of really good moisturizer that may last through at least one hand washing. If it doesn't heal you might have to ask a dr about a perscription. Good luck! It's nasty stuff!

Hi! I found your blog through Janet's blog. :)

I know this is an older entry, but I was also going to say eczema. Aquaphor works great. You can also get prescribed steroid creams if necessary.

Nice to "see" you again.
