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 Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much! 
    • Hi Calla, I think the safe answer is 12 weeks on gluten for a blood test.  I am pretty sure they say 2 weeks on gluten for the gut endoscopy.  But usually people/doctors don't want to  do an endoscopy before a positive blood test, so catch 22 there. There's a chance you still have active antibodies in your blood after 3 weeks off gluten.  But nobody can tell you for sure.  If you can get you doctor to test you now and in 9 more weeks if you are negative now, that might work.  If the doctor is willing to do 2 tests, that would be great. The best thing would have been to do all celiac disease testing before going gluten-free.  But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. The University of Chicago celiac center has an FAQ that answers some of your questions. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/i-dont-have-the-money-to-get-tested-for-celiac-disease-but-a-gluten-free-diet-makes-me-feel-better-is-it-okay-to-start-the-diet-without-being-diagnosed/ Welcome to the forum!
