So as an update, I’m eating eggs, meat, and dairy again. I’m still not eating gluten, soy, nuts. I had my last throat dilation for (hopefully!) a year or more. I had my last dilation Monday. I got home and realized the pain was worse than I thought. My Gi put me on Percocet and some antibiotics. That night, around 8 pm, the stomach flu I had apparently caught came on. The next morning, I pulled a neck muscle. I was sitting up in bed and heard a “pop” and realized I couldn’t move my neck more than a couple inches. Needless to say, Tuesday was one of the worst days, ever. I had a heating pad on my neck, a throw up bucket to my side, and I was totally drugged out with pain killers, Tylenol, and anti nausea medicine (which apparently did nothing). The good news is, by thanksgiving I was feeling much better. Anyway, I’m appreciating my health a lot today! I bleached the toilet (as pretty as Gatorade purple and painkiller pink were, it smelled terrible) put the Christmas tree up, and made all of the gluten free/soy free things I’ve been meaning to make. Ranch and Italian seasoning dry mix, and cream of chicken condensed soup.

And look at this handy graphic, you don’t even need to read the “recipe”. Just mix these things together!
Italian Seasoning Mix
I got this recipe from http://cincyshopper.com/copycat-good-seasons-italian-mix-recipe-2/
I tripled this recipe. I also didn’t have enough oregano so I used the “Italian seasoning” spice (it’s just oregano and thyme) and I did not add extra thyme. 2 tbs=1 pouch of the good seasonings stuff.
Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
This one blew me away with how easy it was! (Recipe is from http://life-in-the-lofthouse.com/homemade-condensed-cream-of-chicken-soup/)
1 1/2 cup milk
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
3/4 flour (I used gf flour blend)
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 black pepper
1 tsp salt
Directions- add chicken broth and 1/2 cup milk to sauce pan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium low. Meanwhile, mix flour and seasonings in separate bowl. Add the rest of milk and whisk to get rid of lumps. Add to sauce pan and simmer til it thicken. For me, with the flour I used, it literally simmered maybe 1 minute before it reached the right consistency. But the recipe says it could take up to 10 minutes. This makes the equivalent of 2 10.5 oz cans.
