:) Omg, I had to get in on this one-I have a friend who swears fried mac and cheese is the greatest food on the planet. She makes the creamy homemade good kind, though. Any leftovers the next day she fries in a pan with butter. Can you say arteriosclerosis?!! Deep fried must mean they make it thick with cheese and make it into a ball? I would think it would look pretty gross... :blink: Plus, wouldn't the grease in the cheese melt and then with the grease on the outside just make it one huge greaseball-y glob? :o

I have seen deep fried tweenkies too, but the strangest thing I ever heard of was batter-dipped deep fried dill pickles. I am ashamed to admit I think I would like the pickles, lol. I think they would maybe taste like fried green tomatoes.

btw-Susan --Yay! Great to see you!!!

Robbin--I've not seen the stuff personally, I'm told that it is bite-sized "nuggets" of deep fried mac and cheese. All I can think is they must scoop it into the hot fat and fry it up like that :blink:

Leah--Deep fried Coke--really? :lol:

Susie -- how are you?????? Lynnie

Before being diagnosed, we had all that deep-fried garbage at our State Fair. Deep fried snickers bars, twinkies, etc. Never tried them, because it just sounded WRONG!!!!! Also thought that it had to be a Kentucky redneck thing . . . . !!!!! :lol: Didn't know that it would be anywhere else . . . We have a restaurant that sells deep-fried pickle chips . . . called "frickled pickles"

Need to go . . . . moment of silence is getting ready to begin

I had these pre-gluten-free. They're not great, but they're not as bad as they sound. I never was a breaded and fried lover, if I had been, I'd have loved them.

Would I lie to you?

Sad but true.

Now, I do have to admit, I love fried jalapenos! They're not exactly healthy either.

After seeing how he makes it, I probably would have tried it--once upon a time. Sounds like something that would taste good for the first couple of bites, then get sickish.

One of my favorite appitizers used to be Olive Garden deep fried zucchini slices--they dust them with grated cheese--so good!

Then how on earth do you deep fry it? :blink::huh::D:D

Pauliina

Anything that can be battered can be deep fried :rolleyes:

In the UK you can get snickers and mars bar in batter deep fried

Yum-NOT :o:o

Oh I feel queasy :unsure:

It's a southern delicacy down here too - blech! :P

State fair food is evil.

"The challenge is getting people to think of other ways to eat beef," said Betty Hogan, director of new product development for the [National Cattlemen's Beef Association].

Regular cheeseburgers aren't fatty enough!!???

Also there's somebody at the Texas State Fair that makes "Fried Coke"...

I think I saw those things on unwrapped and said "EWW"

And then I saw them in my sister's freezer. What on Earth is wrong with people? :huh:

Oh, and when I got to college (I moved from NY to AR), I ate at the dining halls. I joked to everyone nothern that they fry everything but the coke!

Apparently fried twinkies are quite the thing at A&M. Gross.

And I loooooove fried pickles, sadly. It was the only thing I'd eat at AQ Chicken House!

Hmm...I should try frying some one day. :)

:lol::lol::lol: so true...

Hi everybody! Been keeping a low profile here....

Fried pickles.....I REALLY don't get that one at all. Deep fried anything.....so disgusting. I was in the waiting room of the hospital the other day, and there was a family from Holland there, six people, here for three weeks, we chatted a while and they were shocked at the lack of physical activity here.....said something about the option of staying in their rented RV in a church parking lot, less than a mile away. They were astounded that the social worker gave them a phone number for someone to come pick them up.....they said, doesn't anybody WALK here? (nope, no one does, but it's a very spread-out town.) And they commented very delicately on the obesity they've seen in this country.....they were appalled.

I'm pretty sure they don't deep-fry everything in Europe as we do here.....it is truly evil! :blink:

Leah - fried coke batter......EWWWWWWWW - - positively vomitous!

It would be even more noticeable for someone from Holland. :D Since this is such a flat country, and very densely built, meaning in towns distances are very manageable, everybody bikes to places. People might drive to work, or take a train (also very common) but then they might bike to the shops or to the train station or just for fun in the weekend. Or indeed just walk... it's a national pastime apparently (I'm not Dutch!) to take a train to some remote place and then follow a route description you can buy at a tourist office around a nice countryside route either back to the same station or to another one.

I had a couple of visitors from the US once, they were amazed at the masses and masses of bikes that are parked outside of Amsterdam central station. Instead of a car park building, there's a three story structure to park your bike... :blink::D Here in Utrecht their planning to rebuild the station and one of the important planning decisions to make is for how many bikes can they provide space for. :D

Ok, so it's not my native country, but I think this is something the Dutch well deserve to be proud of. :)

Got to thinking about it, though . . . . State fair food? Funnel Cakes -- they're really BAD for you, but boy are they delicious! :lol:

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
