Wish Me Luck - I'm Going In
For Tim's job next week, they have Goody Day and I am the pizzelle maker. Which brings me to today, when I test if I can handle melted butter or not. Health-wise, much has improved over the last year. Even when sprinkled with setbacks, overgrowth, infections and other buggers, on the whole -- many great leaps forward.
For instance, I no longer have chronic spinal issues. After years of being bent like a pretzel (born that way), I now rarely hurt. I haven't had a problem walking in forever (knock on a skeleton's skull), and I can eat more than two bites of food each meal. Which is a bonus because with all the cooking and baking, it's a relief to eat my foods again.
But I digress. And I just heard Frankenberry's alarm go off. Gonna whisk up a batch of fresh palacsintas (Hungarian pancakes), for breakfast and then get crackin' on a small test batch of pizzelles to see if I pass the melted butter test.
Wish me luck, I'm going in.

Good luck Ivy!! I'm glad to hear you've been feeling better. I can only wish that your health keeps improving and that you can eat all the goodies your heart desires :-) Bake away!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks. Your bread looked wonderful. Will you be able to eat Shoppe-bought after that?Delete
I love hearing about you doing well. Good stuff. And I also love your expression "knock on a skeleton's skull". I've got to start using that one. It'll make some people laugh, I'm sure.ReplyDelete
Oh, and good luck!
Thanks, Martha. How'd your day go? Did you get anything yummy to eat?Delete
Got my fingers crossed for you! And my toes too although it makes it difficult to walk.ReplyDelete
Hahaha, you always crack me up.Delete
I hope the melted butter keeps its fangs out of your body. I haven't even thought about baking for the holidays yet. Next week. Maybe.ReplyDelete
Yeah, but you're a cupcake when it comes to baking :-)Delete
Onwards and upwards Whisk, glad to hear things are getting better!ReplyDelete
Good luck! :)ReplyDelete
Good luck, Ivy! Glad to hear you're doing better! Here's to good melted butter vibes!ReplyDelete
Thank you for those good melted butter vibes.Delete
Pizzelles, palacsintas, you are raining down some pizzazzy p-words today! Glad to hear of your improvements health wise, I hope the positives keep coming!ReplyDelete
Toss in puppy pizzelles that were made with peanut butter.Delete
I'm still playing catch-up on blogs and will be over to read about your adventures. Looking forward to catching up on what you've been doing.
Man, sucks not to be able to eat what you make.
Trust me when I say, there are far worse things, than not being able to eat my own foods.Delete
I would love to taste your pizzelles and Hungarian pancakes!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Saucy. Do you make pizzelles?Delete
I wasn't hungry before I read this post but now I am!ReplyDelete
Hey Birdie. Great to see you.Delete
If you can get really better without eating certain foods, then that's fine. You are one of the most positive persons ever.ReplyDelete
Looking forward to the butter result, very much hope it is good.
Happy to report, the melted butter did not cause a skin rash and more importantly, it didn't close my throat. Hot dog, I won.Delete
I hope it went well.ReplyDelete
It did, thanks, William.Delete
good luck Ivy! Would wearing gloves help? My hairdresser developed an allergy to hair dyes so he wears gloves unless his assistant can help out.ReplyDelete
Hi Christine. For sure wearing gloves helps when I am dealing with chemicals, corn or gasoline.Delete
But for the melted butter, it's airborne issue as it has in the past, closed my throat and brought on rashes.
Happy to report, none of that happened yesterday.
Sorry to hear about your hairdresser. Really, I'm surprised she can even work there. Hopefully it doesn't start to bother her breathing. I can tell you, that is NO FUN!
Glad to hear your positive outlook and that things are getting better! Awesome news. Good luck with the trials!ReplyDelete
Like you, I just keep pushing onward. How goes your healing? Have you been able to get any cooking or baking done?Delete
Good luck !ReplyDelete
I too have been missing and now trying to play catch up.
I saw that you were MIA as well. Hope all is better now. Great pictures with the restaurant and the lights.Delete
I really hope it worked out for you! I have a friend who gets a rash if she eats butter/dairy products, but that must be very tough to potentially get a rash just from baking with it!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Bethany. Sorry to hear about your friend. Has she had it long?Delete
For me, the melted butter in the air would close my throat and cause skin rash. Even melted cheese. But now I can be around both, though I won't eat either.
I hope it went well for you, Ivy! Sending you a hug. And I laughed about Frankenberry's alarm clock. LOL! :)ReplyDelete
Please vote in my poll!
I'm still playing catch-up on blogs and haven't seen your poll but I will for sure vote.Delete
PS: It went wonderfully. Thanks.
I'm glad it went well. I never heard of having problems with melted butter before and melted cheese would be even worse.ReplyDelete
It's similar to those who cannot breathe around corn or gasoline (which is me as well). Same with cheese. Though now I can handle the cheese and butter, but still not the corn or gasoline.Delete
All in due time.
Such good news compared to last year. We all have to learn to be thankful for all the things we take for granted. Glad you're doing better!ReplyDelete
You know it, what a difference a year makes, eh?Delete
I caught up on your blog today. You really are the queen of writing great piece with super low word count.
I want to make your cherry hand pies...gonna do it for Christmas Eve when all the kids and their kids are here...a ham, cranberry relish, rolls and etc and cherry hand pies...:)ReplyDelete
It's just pie crust with fresh cherries and a little cornstarch (though some call it cornflour) and sugar mixed with the cherries. Hope you post a picture when you're done.Delete
Much luck. Maybe I should try your methods of getting well.ReplyDelete
I should do a post about it one of these days. It might not work for everyone, but man, it's good not to be on constant pain. I still hurt though, time to time, but by we're no longer on the chronic condition list.Delete
I wish you less pain in the coming year. Sounds like you're on the right track though, feelinb better than a year ago.
Ivy ... I've not known you, and your great blog that long, but reading through your post here I am just so pleased to hear about the improvement you've had, so well done.ReplyDelete
I really feel as if the words should be stronger than well done because you have persevered so much by the sound of it so I'll put it in capital letters WELL DONE.
Seriously I do so enjoy my visits to your blog and seeing what you've been up to.
May you have a brilliant weekend and take good care of yourself.
All the best Jan
Wow, this is a nice comment. Thank you for taking the time to write it.Delete
I admire how much you care for your honey bunny and make him all kinds of safe foods to eat. There's nothing like that kind of lovin'. You are one good cookie, make that, one good low-carb cookie.
PS I've said the weekend because it is quite late in the UK on a Friday night as I type this ...ReplyDelete
Late here now, too. About to close the lid on our coffin and catch some zzzzzz's.Delete
