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........

    • That's great to hear you are feeling better Nightsky.  I really think when our GI systems are in distress already that it doesn't take much to set off symptoms.  Once I eliminated the other foods that cause me symptoms that helped a lot too.  And added some extra vitamin D to my diet and selenium. Many of us have developed reactions to other foods besides gluten and need to avoid them to keep symptoms at bay.  For me nightshades, carrots, soy, dairy, and celery all cause symptoms.  It took me awhile to figure out all those food culprits, but it made a big difference getting them out of my diet. But we are all individuals, and our bodies react individually.  So you may or may not have additional food intolerances develop. Celiac is one of those life journey things and we learn as we go.  Just keep the bottle of aspirin handy!
    • I know that Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce  in the US is gluten free, I also know that in Canada it is NOT. This is a very reliable site: http://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/vinegar/ But it is in the US. I'm agast that the Irish Celiac Society says malt vinegar is gluten free.  I wouldn't use it. No sense taking any chance at all.
    • You should never have cut out gluten until you had the biopsy done. It's much worse to have to go back on after you've been off gluten for a while. There's no way I could ever do the gluten challenge after being off gluten for even a month because my reactions got so dramatically worse.  Stress definately can trigger celiac- before I was diagnosed - it got the worst after surgery and after a stressful time planning my daughters wedding. 
    • Hi not diagnosed celiac, Welcome to the forum! Your doctor should be sent to remedial celiac disease training.  Since that probably won't happen, I suggest you find a new doctor.  He doesn't know what he's doing when it comes to diagnosing celiac disease. You should not have gone gluten-free before completing all celiac disease testing.  The testing for celiac disease depends on the immune reaction being active.  Removing gluten before testing removes the antigen that causes the immune system to react, and lowers the chances of getting a correct test result dramatically.  The University of Chicago celiac disease center recommends: ******************************************** http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ Prior to blood testing we recommend 12 weeks of eating gluten. Prior to an endoscopic biopsy we recommend 2 weeks of eating gluten. In the case of a severe reaction to gluten, a medical professional may opt to shorten the 12-week challenge and move immediately to an endoscopic biopsy. May, 2013 ******************************************** So you will need to go back to eating gluten before your endoscopy.  That may cause worse symptoms than before when you were eating gluten.  So it would have been better to do all testing before going gluten-free. Can you search for a celiac disease support group in your area?  They exist in many parts of the USA and world.  They can be a good place to get a knowledgeable doctor recommendation.  There is also a doctors subsection of this forum where you can search to see if any doctors in your area were recommended.
    • Hi All, I'm new to this and very confused! I have Lea & Perrins WC sauce, it lists it's first ingredient as Malt Vinegar.  I have the Coeliac Society of Ireland Food List 2015 here, and it says "All Vinegars are Gluten Free including Malt Vinegar." Doesn't that mean that L&P Worcestershire sauce is safe?   Their website states " Lea & Perrins® Worcestershire Sauce is cholesterol free, fat free, preservative free, gluten free and has 80% less sodium than soy sauce. " I'm cooking for my coeliac niece, can't afford to make a mistake!
