The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat
3 3

9,867 posts in this topic

Yes, IH! I just typed that in sort of tongue-in-cheek. At our house we do not exactly plan our conversations! :lol:

Anyway, more on the gluten-free compound location. What are your considerations? Mine are as follows:

- warm climate (such as Croatia)

- beautiful scenery (such as Croatia)

- wondrous food and ingredients (such as Croatia)

- surrounded by sea (for example, Croatia)

- amazing ancient art, culture, language and architecture (did I mention Croatia?)

- welcoming people - bet you can't guess where I'm thinking of!

Was lookng at the real estate ads in Colorado. Perhaps 2 communes? That way we have somewhere to vacation?

Not too sure who "we" is/are,

I like the idea of loosening up the topic. Good thought! And a thought for some future threads. :)

I got this thread talking about settlements & communes and who would do the snow plowing. I asked a few (sorry not all) people who participate in the thread if they minded that the topic went astray (as I don't post often in it). They said they liked it that way & thought changing the title to reflect the "chat" aspect was a good idea. Then they all thought I could change the title but I had to ask The Oracle to make the magic. :D

I agree. Like Bacon.

A worthy topic in most any thread! :lol:

Noooo! Bacon is nourishing for the soul. Surely that counts?

I reckon I could load the dishwasher. Not unload though. Hate that job.

How do I love bacon? Let me count the ways...

1. As is, crispy with just a little flexibility around the edges. About 26 pieces, please.

2. In bacon jam on baguettes. Heck, straight from the jar.

3. With eggs about a billion ways including souffle, omelettes, scrambled...

4. Along with mire poix in things such as soups, stews, braised dishes. For example, I am making a mean black bean with chiles en adobo and lime today. And bacon.

5. In potato salad and crumbled onto other salads.

6. Warm bacon dressing.

7. Spaghetti Carbonara.

There. That's a start. Now it's YOUR turn! :)

Anyone else keep bacon fat around for baking and cooking? When making bread I use it to grease pans. Especially good with cornbread.

Don't you just adore GPS? What was the "bacon on a stick" like? Anything else with it?

Forgot to mention that if you brush slices of bacon lightly with maple syrup and bake it becomes like bacon candy in a GOOD way.

I think a little bacon would perk that rice dish right up!

I do adore the GPS. :) My MIL taught me to make it, probably 35 years ago.

The BOaS was a slab, about 4x10 inches, fried and literally eaten like a huge lollipop. There was a very light amount of a slightly sweet BBQ-like sauce on it. They also offered fried potato chunks. After questioning the cook, I found out that the potatoes are the only thing that gets cooked in the oil so I got to have them. With sour cream. B)

Not the healthiest lunch I've ever had, but mighty tasty :D

I candy bacon with brown sugar. Just coat thickly with brown sugar and bake on a cooling rack set on a baking sheet. I've actually never had it last long enough to put away. :ph34r:

I keep the fat and use it for cornbread too! And fried potatoes and potato soup and.....

#8 Quiche with double smoked bacon

For dinner tonight it will be something with ground pork but I don't know what yet.

You could write a bacon cookbook.

I admit to having a can in the freezer, like my Mom does.

I also admit to making our eggs in the bacon grease like my Mom does.

Mom is 86 and healthy as a horse, works out at a gym 3X a week and walks 2 miles without huffing and puffing,

therefore I conclude bacon is good for us.

Didn't you tell me your daughter brought home BACON flavored candy canes? :lol:

Dinner tonight is stuffed peppers, but I feel compelled to drape bacon over the top for some reason........

    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.   
    • Hello we got her biopsy results back and they are normal.  The doc is calling her non celiac gluten intolerant and lactose intolerant.  Now we will just wait to see if the gluten-free diet helps her.  She does have elevated IgG to casein and wheat  I know there is controversy on whether that test is helpful or not but either way we are hoping she gets well going gluten-free    
    • My family was out camping earlier this month to our favorite lake.  They have a restaurant there we have going to for years.  Since I recently went gluten free, I was very nervous about trying out their menu.  Usually, restaurants have a select few items you can choose from that are considered "gluten-free" (i.e. Olive Garden).  However, this restaurant even had French Fries that were in a separate fryer than the rest of fry population.  I considered it a huge treat when they not only went out of their way to make sure you could get sandwiches gluten-free, but also had French fries and a dessert available.  The best part of it was I didn't get sick afterwards.  Yahoo!  Thank goodness it's 3 hours away.
    • too many of us are treated this way, unfortunately   ^^^^^  and many of us have been in the same (no quality of life!  always sick! )  situation and yes, it can be life threatening if left untreated.  so glad you're feeling better   no thanks to the almighty doctor  i have a celiac diagnosis and my g.p. (who i go to - or used to go to - for my check ups, see how my blood pressure is, vitamin levels, etc.  normal maintenance, you know) tried to give me viberzi!!  for my ibs-d !!  what???  i have celiac.  i was furious!!  (i'm still pretty upset)   o, the good news was that he gave me a coupon for the first month.  after that, it's THIRTY DOLLARS A MONTH.   not to mention all the lovely side effects (one of them was diarrhea!!)   no, thanks, buddy....   anyways, rant over lolz - welcome to the forum!
    • Those numbers are all perfect meaning they show you likely don't have celiac.  Those tests are very accurate IF you are eating a normal diet of gluten.  You must be eating gluten for weeks prior to this testing.  So if you have not been then yes these results are not accurate.
