Can This Food Be Saved?

10 posts in this topic

I just cooked stir fry with fresh chicken and one of those frozen stir-fry mixes. As I was serving it, I found what looked like pasta. WTF? Sure enough, I looked more closely at the bag and yep, freaking pasta in the stir fry! Who wants pasta in their stir fry???

Can it be saved? We all react to CC. Can I wash the other veggies and chicken off? Or should I just give it away?

I think it would be best to give it away :)

Throw it or give it away. I once fell for that. Saw an ad on TV for some frozen product and actually went to the store to look for it. Luckily the pasta was big and obvious. And then I thought... What in the world was I thinking? Same thing when I woke up in the middle of the night and thought I could buy pies for my daughter's birthday at school. Somehow I was thinking fruit. Totally forgot about the crust. Doh!

I'll give it away. I'll be seeing most of my family this weekend. Surely someone will want a delicious stir-fry!

The kids and I wound up eating beans and rice, which was delicious. I cooked another chicken breast for lunch tomorrow and hubby ate it while I was putting the kids to bed. grr.

Stinks too b/c I re-contaminated my wok and one of my wooden spoons. :(

And that, gentle reader, is why it takes me so long to buy groceries. We have to read the labels, even of the picture looks good.

Celiac 101--always read the label ;)

Reading labels is something I usually do religiously, but this was probably something I bought while attempting to shop with the kids on a Saturday afternoon. Either that or I was in a gluten fog from passing the bakery too slowly.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it. ;)

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
