Do you have a pink cow yet? They apparently give strawberry milk, which is so much more interesting than the chocolate milk you get from the brown cows. :o

I hope it is true that calories consumed on Thanksgiving don't count. A busy afternoon baking saw us make brownies, French bread and pumpkin pie. Then we ate roast beef with Yorkshire pudding and are resting before tackling the pie.

It is Thanksgiving. Calories and sugar don't count today, right?

Bacon, fried eggs and waffles with real maple syrup in the morning, with lots of coffee.

Potato chips with sour cream and onion dip mid afternoon, while taking a break from baking.

Roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, gluten-free gravy and rice two hours ago.

Pumpkin pie with whipped cream coming up in minutes.

Boys and girls take warning, if you go near the lake

Keep your eyes wide open, and look for sneaky snake

Now maybe you wont see him, maybe you wont hear

But hell sneak up behind you, and drink all your root beer

And then sneaky snake goes dancin, wigglin and a-hissin

Sneaky snake goes dancin, gigglin and a-kissin

I dont like old sneaky snake; he laughs too much you see

When he goes wigglin through the grass, it tickles his underneath

Well, sneaky snake drinks root beer, and he just makes me sick

When he is not dancin, he looks just like a stick

Now, he doesnt have any arms or legs, you cannot see his ears

And while we are not lookin, hes stealin all of our beer

And then sneaky snake goes dancin, wigglin and a-hissin

Sneaky snake goes dancin, gigglin and a-kissin

I dont like old sneaky snake; he laughs too much you see

When he goes wigglin through the grass, it tickles his underneath

Would that be related to the brilliant irony of Tom T. Hall? Love it!

I did buy a box of grits, but have not tried them yet. Any info would be sorely appreciate.

Sleezenah

First, don't use Quaker.....CC issues.

Cook them longer than directions say.......they should be thick, not soupy like most restaurants serve them. IT'S NOT CREAM O' WHEAT, PEOPLE!!!!!

Oh, and add a couple slices of cheese near the end of cooking.......Yummmmmm!!!!!!! ^_^

Hi, Esamarie!!!! Jump right in.......the water's great! ;)

Hey, Bev........you gonna do any scuba diving????? I gots me own gear!..hint, hint

Sorry to say, I have not been fond of Thanksgiving, lately, as I have been stuck with all the cooking. (Remember how I hate cooking? :angry: )Me in-laws, for the past few years, have conveniently taken a vacation at this time, and the rest of the family scatters to the other side of their families.

Been missing Soozle, too. I don't think she liked Patteigh's and my diet tips :unsure: Hmmmm.........Souczie cutting sugar cold turkey...........scary thought :wacko: I don't think Fresno's ready for that :ph34r:

'Mornin', Peeeeeps!

Leeeesargh, I just LOVE yer li'l penguin. Every time you post, I watch him, mesmerized......adorable.. .. ....

Must put up the heeelarryus pic that DH took yesterday just before he went for a run on the trails a short car ride from our place. The Ripper was going with him on his bike, so Will opened his car trunk and left it open whilst he went to get Jack's bike to throw in. The dogs were out by the car, waiting for the running adventure to begin.

When Will came out of the garage, there was Charles, sitting in the trunk. Waiting.

:lol:

Yep, I see them, too! POTATO sheeps, ONION deeps, PUMPKIN peyes, (assumed OLIVESES)! Sounds like a Phoin Thankgiving Day, to me!

Love the mental pic. of Charles waiting oh, so patiently in the trunk!!! How cute!!!

I'm not so crazy about T'day anymore either. When my fam. was all younger we'd all get together at Mom and Dad's. When you count all of us, siblings, our chilluns, you could count on about 30 of us. Got to the point where Mom just could not deal with it all anymore....so everybody splintered into their own little family groups. Not a lot of phun with just Telehubby and me. Last year we invited a couple for dinner that we really didn't know, and it was all cut short because of work schedules. Some of us work on all of the holidays.....so they all seem to be the same as any other day. Guess I'm old enough it doesn't matter so much anymore.

OK, I'm done whiiiiniing in selph pittay!

Gorgeous day outside!!! Makes for a pretty good day inside, too! :D

Yep. . ..he is a magnificent runner. Elsie runs quite awkwardly, but much better than when we got her. She spent so much time in a TOO-SMALL CRATE in which she could NOT lie down properly, or stand fully, that her skeleton and posture have been forever affected.

Catching up on a few pages, y'all are making me hungry! I have to wait another month for Thanksgiving and we're going to my inlaws--I'm wondering if maybe they'll let me do the cooking......I'll stop there ;)

PB is good with everything as is bacon with anything. 2 of my favorite foods-The bacon is a little difficult since I went vegetarian <_<

Nothing too psillie for me here. We are going to the beach this weekend with 13 of my craziest family members, there should be plenty of psilly there fo-sho!

I thought I read that Soozle was sick as well. Nik-olette, hope you're feeling better too!!

Poor little Elsie! Who could do that to a dog?

I used to love Thanxgivin, but not so much lately. We go to my MIL at 12:00, and then my daughter's at 5:00. Which means I'll have to make a gluten-free turkey dinner a couple of days before to take to both places and I'll be so sick of all that I'll barph! Oh, well, I guess it's the peeps, not the food.

Maybe I'll take potatoe chips, onion dip, and a two-olive martini!

Am at a lost. Am way too Patrishion for my "hood", but don't now how to be properly Hillbilly. How bout a beat up old carseat on my front porch? Or, is that TOO obvious? Come on, help me out here.

Where IS Soozle?

Not good enough. You need an old ratty sofa on yer front porch.......and maybe an old coonhound. And in the front yard you need an old rusted out Ford pickup truck....no tires......sittin on cinder blocks.

Patteigh!!!! Ya still got that port-a-potty???? :P

    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue 
    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep. 
    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.)
