I've tested and found that as long as I only indulge a little I won't get a rash, so I went ahead and made a pizza with fresh mozzarella. The crust is the perfect in between of crispy and chewy and I ate almost half a pizza. :ph34r: I'm going to have to get the dust off my elliptical tomorrow or go buy some new spanx.

spanx :lol: um, I am not sure spanx are gonna help me one bit. If I put them manage to shoe horn them on, I fear I would just look redunkulous.

All seriousness?

I am so so happy for you that got this little bit o'eating heaven back again. yaay! xx

I am intolerant of spanx - part of my heat weirdness.

I did however have one piece of candied bacon on Christmas morn - thanks for the idea Addie - my men were extremely appreciative as well :D

I wish I had remembered candied bacon! I used just a few slices in my cornbread pudding and had a bunch leftover and just cooked some for my husband. Normal, regular, frying in a pan. Obviously I'm a terrible wife, feeding my man ordinary bacon on Christmas. :lol: I'm glad your men were happy. Mine seemed happy just to have a hot breakfast, that doesn't happen often around here.

By the way, you and your man look good vertical, and in your non-spanx.

Thanks Shroom- that is my 19 year old - my genetic twin unfortunately - has had to remove a bit more than gluten - on Leap Day 2012 - just before the last flare that took me out in March. G R E A T to be up and planning even partial days back in the snow :D

Question for the Bacon Jam aficionados - Is it best hot, straight from the crockpot? Or cooled? Or do you re- heat it?

Heated - either straight from the crock or re-heat for subsequent servings

Enjoy!

Encore George. What exactly is Encore George? Well, every year we name our ham (or turkey for Thanksgiving) and this year we named him George. Before bed I'll have my stock finished and the rest of George will be canned to be parsed out through the remainder of the year.

Also, I think I just made my husband feel bad. I'm all about lemon or lime, not so much on orange. But, I made the cookies orange just for him. And I just offered him one of the two left that I didn't freeze and he didn't want it. I asked if he didn't like them and he looked all guilty and grabbed one and started eating it because he knows I made them just for him. Poor guy, I didn't mean to make him feel bad. I like them just fine and will be more than happy to eat them up myself! He just needs to buy me new pants. :lol:

I've been busy with going hither and yon and having company the past couple of days. Now everyone is gone and I am home alone while hubby travelled three hours to watch a hockey game. Peace and quiet. So, I made myself pork cracklings (almost as good as or equivalent to BACON) and:

Thai Green Chicken Curry (tons of lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves...)

Kaffir Lime-Infused Jasmine Rice

Spicy Cucumber Salad

And leftover coconut cream cake with coconut buttercream and toasted hazelnuts on top.

Pretty much had a good old-fashioned pig out session. Not that I needed to, but sometimes a girl's just got to do what a girl's got to do! :P

You can spread it on cold --works just fine. I used it on buttered toast that way. I served it room temp for spreading on crackers so it was not too thin , but I did heat it briefly in the micro in a small ramekin for spreading on burgers.

Hi, Irish! Missed ya. ;)

You know what else is good? Sprinkle thick bread with a good melting cheese such as Provolone (Cheddar not as good), top with bacon jam and slices of pear and broil. Oh, MAN! I can't stand it.

actually, funny you should mention this.... but I DID work with a detective agency/lawyer back in the 80's. (summer work when school was out) and I did some very interesting investigative work....ah, good times...but I digress. I missed you, too and I hope you had a wonderful Christmas weekend.

So, dinner tonight?

Encore Fred

He is the lasagne I made last night.

Yes, we name our lasagnes every year........ ;)

Your meal sounds just a touch healthier than mine. But thankfully tomorrow is a new day filled with greens and vinaigrettes! :P Don't you just love mandolines? Mine gets good workouts, too.

Some people have such weird traditions. :P

I'm assuming you still have electricity tonight to cook Fred the Lasagne? Hopefully it stays that way for you!

Don't you just love mandolines? .

Sadly, I am not allowed to use the mandoline as I am accident prone, but hubs can work it and I am so glad--- as it helped me make the best potato gratin EVER on Christmas Eve. I always made it just fine, I thought, but this recipe? is crazy good.!

I added a good dash of nutmeg (because I like it in most creamy, cheesy or egg dishes.)

Still snowing like mad, but yes, this week it stayed on. Good thing; the generator is broken.

And Encore Fred ........well, he .was even better than last night.

(hope that is not taken out of context.............that could sound a tad risque.)

Yep - my regular slice mandoline works great for the dehydrated pears I love to snack on.

IH - I can't do doubles on cell, but wanted to tell you the "helper" at my local cookware shop showed me a special glove that one can use to prevent accidents - tho hubs slicing is a better solution.

Yes, yes it could. This is what happens when you put a bunch of us girls together! :lol:

And yes, weird traditions are by far the best. If they make other people look at you kind of funny and question your sanity, you are definitely doing it right!

The Hubs is in charge of certain jobs around here: car repairs, plumbing, electrical work, running the rototiller, running the weed whacker and edge trimmer, running the electrical hedge shears, digging big holes, handling very sharp objects,using the mandoline, running the vacuum, and grocery shopping. Whenever I have tried to do any of those, I have hurt myself. Therefore, these jobs have been taken away from me. :unsure:

The first year we were married, I convinced the hubs that it was an old Armenian tradition to open one gift on Christmas Eve EVE. He did not buy it at first. So, I called my Dad and asked him to explain it to him. My Dad played along and gave this elaborate explanation making up a fake saint and the story of the bestowing of gifts to the poor villagers, blah blah blah ........and thus, the CEE tradition was passed down. Whether he actually fell for it or not is moot. We do it anyway. He finds it is best to just go along.

Dinner tonight:

I have to rethink our traditional "Friday is pizza night" plan. I had too much Fred the past two days

and too much potato gratin and frankly, I'm kind of "cheesed out." After losing dairy/cheese for a year and happily getting it back again, I never thought I hear myself say those words. But, there it is.

We have friends for dinner, roast chicken and veg. Seen off the last of the turkey encores today. My Mum loves turkey soup so we helped her freezer...

Contemplating whole30 next week. I am seeing a dietitian soon, bet they''ll hate it. I need to lose plenty, am feeling quite a lot better and think some elimination tests would be good. I need to try dairy free properly, hence I am trying to fit 30 days worth of cheese in by Monday. I love stilton and believe it is a reasonable ingredient for any meal.

    • As a GI specialty nurse who also has celiac I can tell you that it can not be diagnosed by CT and rarely unless you have severe disease can it be diagnosed by colonoscopy.  Those that have had it diagnosed by colonoscopy have such because their MDs were above to get into the small bowel from the bottom and take biopsys.  Celiac damage is not seen in the large intestine.  Also many people do not have diarrhea, many have constipation or a 50/50 mix between the two.  Celiac has 300 connected symptoms and sometimes no symptoms at all.  It's called the " great pretender" because of this.
    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
