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.

How did your bacon jam turn out?

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. :)

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
