ummmmm -- perhaps it is just me -- but that sounds like a pretty good deal :D

;) tom sawyer and painting the fence...

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.

oh boy, a cheese splurge! enjoy!

Stilton is delicious and I could see you putting it in just about anything, except maybe a smoothie. :unsure:

I'm back on the Whole 30 come Jan. 1. It's a bit radical, but it helps to "reset" and determine what foods may be giving you grief.

If you want, we can "buddy up" via PMs and if one of us cracks, well, we can be supportive---or say screw it, eat a bunch of cheese and crackers and drink wine and be miserable failures together. :D Sound like a plan?

Cool, cheese buddies it is. Oh no, maybe I missed the point... Sounds great, though I think I am starting 2nd . Maybe the whole 29. Can you tell I am not good with rules?

had to tell you all....

I rode my bike this morning for the first time in 9 months, 2 days and 1 hour -- rode with the sun rising and the moon setting -- 2013 is going to be an awesome year :)

Oh...we are having salmon and zu-noodles for dinner ;)

January has 31 days, so the 2 nd might be correct?

I will be posting about cheese laden dinners every day in January ( whether we are eating them or not!). smiley-evilgrin0011.gif

Do you just boil strips of zucchini like a pasta noodle? My SIL might like this. Maybe she should offer that in her " healthy" restaurant . She is diabetic and has to watch the carbs. She makes pizza with a cauliflower/ cheese crust.

She liked it and her teen son liked it. It isn't low cal because its still full of cheese in her recipe. I'm looking thru my recipes for a moz stick one I have misplaced. If I see that, I'll post it so you can see if its the same.

I would like that. I sometimes add some frozen zuc to stuff for me. I can "hide" it in a few recipes. In the crockpot, if you cut it small, it cooks to mush.

okay, I see you are starting with the right attitude, there MW, already looking for ways to cheat (my kind of girl) ....But, it would still be 30, since there are 31 days in Jan. Can you tell I am very good at rationalizing cheating?

I am standing up and applauding you right now, Ski . I am over the moon happy for you because I know full well what this means to you.

And next summer, when I ride mine, you will cheer me too. Get some of those streamers that dangle from the hand grips

I zink that pozzibly the zu-noodles are making you zippy!

I do that too. It's pretty good, but really doesn't taste like potatoes to me. I can't fake myself into that one.

I think I'll make lasagna casserole tonight. 1 bowl, 5 min prep, done. Not in the mood to cook tonight :rolleyes:

Carne Adovado that had been marinating in my fridge for 1 1/2 days and will now cook for 12 hours. Probably some hot water cornbread and rice with tomatoes cooked in it. Or maybe corn spoonbread? Haven't decided yet whether I want to fry (HW cornbread) or bake (spponbread).

Having looked at pictures of both, and having quite an unhealthy affinity for fried foods, I vote frying. The pictures look divine! I didn't know such a thing exists, now I want some.

My plan was burgers on arepas. I'm sort of rethinking that now.

Sounds like total party food to me. After Karen's we'll hit your place.

I was making

Veal marsala and Risotto Milanese and sauteed chard, but now, I am not so sure.

I want what you're all having. :D

Last night, I made "everything but the kitchen sink nachos"

(you know, refried beans, jalapenos, guac, olives, chicken, salsa, sour cream, etc ...anything I found in the fridge....goes on top)

Have to get in all my cheese consumption before Jan.2. :)

I have family coming in from out of state and we are all getting together tonight. They had the idea for a big mexican dinner. I'm making black bean and corn salsa, Crossing fingers. chicken enchiladas with a cheese, sour cream sauce with green chiles. I cannot have tomoato, so I'm getting creative.

And you could have some tomato salsa to pass for those who like it! But it sounds yummy to me.

Not sure how strictly you are not eating tomatoes, I like Pacific Spicy Black Bean Soup ( not spicy really) for enchilada sauce. It does have some tomato paste in it.

Margaritas coming up!

I love that J used bacon on the nachos. cool idea! . I put bacon in some chicken quesadillas recently.yum.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE black beans. Did I ever share the black bean and turkey chili recipe on here? very good stuff.

CKip, I had to give up tomatoes --and all citrus ---for a year (that really sucked) and I found them hard to work around, and I hope you get them back someday.

I have Two suggestions for you:

(1) http://givemesomefoo...oes_we_don.html

and

(2)

Mango Pineapple Salsa

1 mango, diced small

1/2 pineapple, diced small

1/2 red onion, diced small

1/2 jalapeno pepper, minced

small bunch fresh chopped cilantro

juice of 1 lime

Mix together.

Good with corn chips, on grilled chicken or fish, too.

Have a wonderful family gathering!

    • Squirmingitch, I forgot to mention best of luck to you during the storm! I hope you are safe and that your home isn't impacted too badly! I'm on the coast in SC so we will see some storms from it but nothing near as bad as what you will have. Take care and good luck.
    • SquirmingItch, I really appreciate you gathering info for me! To answer your questions, yes, I'm on Dapsone now and have been on it for about 4.5 weeks. I have been gluten free for the same amount of time. I started on 50 mg of Dapsone which didn't seem to help much. I spoke to my doctor about it and after about a week she raised it to 100 mg. Since then I did notice a huge improvement in both my rash and itch. I no longer have any active rashes and my itching isn't completely gone but it's very minimal. I have been getting weekly blood tests done and will soon be moving to monthly.  My DH skin biopsy was done before the gluten free diet and Dapsone. My results for the skin biopsy came back as inconclusive, but even with those results, my doctor was convinced I had DH. I specifically asked her about the fact that she took the biopsy directly from the lesion rather than next to it and if that affects the result. Her explanation was that if it's a fresh enough lesion that isn't scratched, there should be IgA antibodies present. But she said that an inconclusive result isn't surprising because the IgA antibodies come and go from the skin so quickly that it can be very difficult to get a positive result, even in someone who is positive.  That's when she decided to run the celiac blood panel on me. And even though those results came back positive for the deamidated gliadin and negative for tTg, she still is very convinced that I have DH. I am happy that my doctor seems to be certain, but I would just feel better if the results were more definitive. The one other thing I am waiting on is I have been asked to attend grand rounds at the local academic hospital in 2 weeks. I guess grand rounds is where all of the academic dermatologists and dermatopathologists get together to review certain complicated cases. They will meet with me, review all of my pictures, biopsies and blood tests. My situation has been so complicated so they asked me to come. I am hoping maybe then I will get some more answers. 
    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
