Salmon & Spinach Desperado Quiche

I guess first I’ll share my crazy kitchen adventure that I was afraid wouldn’t turn out.  Then the update!  I had made a smoked salmon salad for myself the other day.  Leftovers were still in the fridge, and I didn’t want it as salad, but I didn’t want to throw out that wild salmon either!  It’s a desperado quiche.

  • salmon salad:  1/2 can boneless wild Alaskan salmon naturally smoked; a few spoonfuls mayonnaise (from NT); 1/2 lemon’s juice; couple sprinkles finely ground mustard powder
  • 2 free range eggs
  • 1/2 cup chopped frozen and then crushed apart while frozen (think: in the kitchen with a frozen blob of chopped spinach in a bag and me hitting the counter with it like a maniac)
  • small casserole dish, oiled with ghee
  • oven 350.  Mix that stuff together with a fork in a mixing bowl, pour it into the casserole dish and put it in the oven for an hour or so.

Truth and dare: I don’t measure anything, and I don’t count time either.  I just keep my nose near the kitchen.  And if I dont…it all goes up in smoke.  Just the way it works, folks.

Now for the update!

I’ve been home now for a week and a half.  The Ga trip really helped me out and I do feel a lot better from the edema crisis, but I still have to take care.  As soon as I got home I came down with what I thought was a virus or who-knows-what.  ears and throat sore.  well that got worse…full blown agonizing ear infection.  Guess what?  I needed abx.  Haha, it’s crazy.  I tried the home remedies I thought I would tolerate and I still was just getting worse…delayed a bit by the garlic and onion oil drops and stuff.  Anyway those abx helped very quickly and I’m glad to have it down to cotton ears and tinnitus and the worst symptoms.  The abx have made me sleepy…I didn’t expect that, and I’m taking so many probiotics and good fermented foods its not funny.  No herxing from the heavy duty doses of probiotics so…. 🙂 yeah.

I think I’m pretty well geared up for this supermoon.  Today has been my best day in QUITE a while, not that I feel great.  I got out and took a walk, laid in the grass for a while, and went out to eat with mom and then went to the store….also enjoyed chatting with some friends, online shopping customizations (I’m taking the yoga mat plunge), and just general relaxing!  I even took another nap today. 🙂  AND….fiddled around in the kitchen.  All wearing my orange shirt for St Patrick’s day.

Want to say many thanks to all my supportive friends! ♥ Your prayers and gifts are appreciated deeply…. God is good.

Chemicals….

That’s the conclusion in short.  Way too many chemicals bothering my system.  Recieved a glutathione and lipostabil IV today, and had about 40 minutes of mHBOT.  Infections…though showing are not primary at all.  For the labs that have come in, I am only low in potassium according to blood serum levels.  I’m waiting for results on some of them.

On a new supplement regimen to get feeling better.  Updating spreadsheet in a minute and then napping.

It’s time for me to recognize my own human dignity in Christ…  Ok that sounds strange.  It’s not.  I’m so tired I can’t get the comb through my hair, and my hair is super curly.  This means TROUBLE.  I’m going to cut my hair – because I’m sick.  I will make it for pleasure too, but I have loved my long hair.  It’s the fact that I can’t keep my hair from being a wreck that bugs me, not so much having to change my “style.” (pretty hippie and unkempt to begin with)  There’s something deeper…my life and even worldview impacting, but I do not wish to say it here.

Sleepy…my brain isn’t working that great.  Math is still terrible.  I had something like a panic attack while at the clinic today – thats been basically regular thing since the edema.  It’s embarassing to have it at the doctor’s office.  Yeah…my self worth keeps taking hits.   We humans are so strange, we can think ourselves worth far too much in some ways, and worth far too less in others…and at the same time.  Freaky.

Still in true financial straights.  my 3 supplements alone cost a little over $100.  Then the stop for my bottle of NAC cost me $23 more.  I am so stressed about money still.  If you want to help me cover my medical bills, you can send via Paypal:  knittingbag@yahoo.com .
