Thanks, Ski xxo

As it so happens, I am also making Bacon Jam today!!

I have had that recipe printed off for months and now, it is time.

I am using the slow cooker. Why? because I am lazy.

Later, we will be having

Beef Filets

Roasted sweet potatoes

and some other veggie as yet to be determined.

I still have to bake bread, too--we're out.

How did your bacon jam turn out? Which recipe did you use? I have several but have yet to try every single one.

It smells heavenly -- still bubbling in the crock.

Got a beautiful fresh Christmas tree this morning - fresh pine and bacon jam wafting together is quite nice :)

Several? More to try :)

I used the one a few pages back -- think it was Tuesday or Wednesday.

bacon, onion, garlic, coffee, vinegar, brown sugar and maple syrup

Yes - mine's still bubbling at nearly four hours...think I'll go for a walk before it needs to be finished and jarred.

L2T is right again -- shoulda made a triple batch -- only went for a double today -- might add a touch of bourbon next time too!

All my guys are beyond happy with me this evening with just a taste - tomorrow they'll have some with breakfast and be eternally grateful to you :)

I made bread yesterday, too so we slathered some on --very tasty!!

and yes, I was very disappointed the recipe only yielded 2 cups.( It says yields 3. cups--nope )

Next time, double or triple batch...and bourbon!

I'm gonna need a bigger slow cooker.....

That pizza crust is just delicious, Sylvia!

Tonight, we're having chicken thighs--not sure how I will prepare them yet, but I made Risotto Milanese last night (instead of sweet potatoes) and that encore should be tasty. And some sauteed baby spinach.

The bacon jam, spread on buttered Bette Hagman's 4 flour bread(makes crazy- good toast)--just wickedly good this morning.

Glad I got you to try that recipe!!! And I got my son-in-law in Denver making it, too, for my celiac daughter! I may just abandon any urge to try any more new pizza crust recipes. And it's just amazing how well my new pizza pan works (I'm falling in love with USA Pans). :)

I love love love my USA bread pan and the pizza pan, too! Good recipes + good pans = good food.

That's the extent of my math capabilities. The End.

As we have been carnivores as of late tonight is Caesar Salad night. I am making delicious croutons from bagels (I like larger chunks with lots of nooks and crannies) and making the dressing from scratch as I always do.

Today I am making homemade chorizo sausage to freeze. I am also making a batch of sweet and spicy mustard. Oh, yes. And roasted poblano and corn soup. This gives me such pleasure and joy. :)

    • Hi, I am 20yrs old and have had this weird stomach pains on and off for 2 years. They started by just having pains on my left side when I sucked in or pressed on my tummy. In the last 3 months they have gotten really bad, with a lot of bloating and used to occur almost every time just before bed I would get bloated, and feel constipated like I just needed a hole in my stomach to release the pressure. I have had tests for lactose and gluten, and they both came back negative. I was not having any gluten at the time of the test which I have read can affect the results. I had little help from my doctor so I went gluten free which was working really well and I would only have pain once every two weeks. The last three nights were awful, I was in so much pain I struggled to walk, and again they would go away in the morning. I looked like I was pregnant and relief was only through passing wind (sorry for the detail!). I was wondering if anyone has had similar experience, or could point me in a direction to help me. The weird thing is that I did have gluten one day and that didn't seem to affect me at all. Then I will have something like vegemite (I'm from Australia) and this is the only thing that I can think off that would set me off (it contains wheat). So I don't really know what do to or where to go, these stomach pains have been heightened since I had a horrible gastro for a week, and went to hospital. Could it be possible that my gut lining has been damaged? I have become really stuck on what I should do next, as tonight my stomach is fine, I actually feel hungry (previously I have felt super full as a result of being bloated), so I have no idea what triggered that horrible episodes before I went to bed for the last few nights. Any thoughts or suggestions would be amazing, thank heaps
    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
