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........

Yes she did and Milo stole them. Bad kitty. <_<

It's breakfast sausage and eggs for dinner. Next best thing to bacon.

Sorry, sweets :( ((hugs))

DH is awesome for taking care of your dinner!!

KUDOS for still retaining your sense of humor while glutened. Not easy, is it? :(

And celiac--it ain't for sissies.

Hope you feel well soon---and enjoy your next serving of bacon.

My men are having breakfast for dinner - waffles, eggs and hmmm...what is that lovely smell wafting from my kitchen???

For me - my first attempt at apple breadlike substance without using eggs -- and for the first time ever in all my years of cooking I used too much salt :huh: -- maybe the eggs absorbed any previous oversalting :P -- along with encore chicken and broccoli soup.

I'm all for two silly compounds -- ok who is heat intolerant or cold intolerant -- thinking I may get left alone with the cabana boy to shovel snow when hubby heads out to catch his beloved fishies in southern waters B)

Hope you are feeling better very soon MW - that gluten stuff is a PITA ;)

I decided at the store last night to try KA waffle mix instead of buying more Bisquick. I was thrilled with how good my waffles turned out. My husband will not put gravy on waffles, I suppose it is because he grew up in CA and not back east where chicken and waffles is a "thing." What a sad and empty childhood he must have had, poor thing. :( My turkey and waffles were delicious and he had waffles and bacon.

OMG!!! I think that's too much striped hog even for me. After all the talk about bacon this morning, I decided not to have a bacon, lettuce and avocado sammie for lunch - I'd already overdone my bacon quota for the day, and now look what you've done!

:lol::lol::lol:

Happy Thanksgiving to all Psillies (with or without bacon)

How do people live without chicken and waffles?! (or turkey and waffles as a after turkey substitute) I can't be the only person who grew up eating this at least once a month and usually more often.

All native Californians in this house - turkey enchiladas and turkey tacos are post Thanksgiving day musts. Once in awhile a turkey pot pie slips into the mix in between Mexican fare - oh and turkey sandwiches with cranberry :)

Turkey and waffles will likely be called up to the permanent Turkey Day roster after this year!

Addy, where exactly "back east" is chicken and waffles a "thing".?

I grew up In Boston and I never ate that once.

Do you mean someplace a bit farther south, southeast perhaps? :)

I am sure it is tasty??!!!.

That is the ultimate. Actually, this is a very smart way to roast a turkey - it won't taste bacon-y but the bacon just provides fat for basting. I have done this but not in such a fancy pattern. :P Great way to do meatloaf and dry things such as quail, Cornish game hens...

What is this gravy sacrilege? I missed this first time around. GRAVY!!??? OMG, get me outta here.

I went to brunch with a friend, the same friend who said she liked eating with me because I would eat anything, and I let her choose the place.

I sat there looking at the menu for 5 minutes, 10 minutes,...12 -- and then I said to her, "Lee, can we go eat someplace else? I cannot eat here!" (Pre gluten-free days natch.) And she says, what's wrong?? and I says, everything's got gravy on it!!!! :lol: :lol: And no, she wasn't southern, but she was from Arizona.

Different strokes....

I grew up in Northeastern PA. I've heard the chicken and waffles is more of a southern thing maybe but we were close enough to the Mason-Dixon line to adopt a few of their traditions without giving up being yanks. Mostly though I grew up with the Pennsylvania Dutch cooking traditions which involves baking baking and more baking of poison.

I am thankful today that my health is finally improving once again & that I will be able to cook for the invasion tomorrow!

Happy Thanksgiving Friends :)

The chicken and waffle thing is definitely southeast, but none for me EVER. It just looks so not paired well together, but keep in mind the joke in my house is I'm not southern (born and raised in the south) and sometimes I'm not American. All because I don't eat southern foods (grits, sweet tea, etc) and I didn't watch movies or a lot of tv growing up. :)

Supper tonight was hash browns with chili, cheese and jalape&ntilde;o on top. Will be awhile before have this again, post meal blood sugar was 155 :(. I knew I shouldn't have checked it.

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
