Sora, I love short ribs. The following are amongst my favourites:

So happy you are getting excited about Thai chicken! I have never, ever used curry powder in Thai dishes but instead make all my pastes from scratch with kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, chiles, etc. Curry powder to Thai chicken is as authentic as Spam is to bacon. Who needs curry powder? I LAUGH in the face of curry powder. :lol:

I know what you mean. Both are equally good, actually, and completely different from one another. Let us know what you decide! Short ribs should be its own food group, as bacon should be. :)

Definitely not around here but when my husband takes me to the nearest city (three hours away) every two months on culinary escapes (as we call these trips) we find the lime leaves (fresh and frozen) at an Asian market. We stay in a tiny boutique hotel that is so charming. It only has about 12 rooms I think and each time you get a different one. They are all plush but very different from one another as the building is old (for our standards) and all higgledy piggledy. It is a treat, that is for sure. So, we book the sweet hotel, make dinner reservations at amazing restaurants and go food shopping. We hit the Asian market, the Latino shop, the huge Italian Centre, large indoor Farmer's Market, and gluten-free shop. We usually come home with an enormous haul but this is what we love to do. This is our entertainment. Anyway, we are going next weekend and I cannot wait. Though I'm in lots of pain we are going. As you know, I always lie down in the Jeep en route, but nothing will keep me away from those stores.

How do you like that for a short concise answer? :lol:

You are sure to love it. It will grow on you and then you will become addicted like me. Heck - once we had something similar only with blue cheese added! FANTASTIC. So, if cheese causes migraines as it used to me, go all out...

L2T and Irish (Irish knows) in one of my past lives ;) I lived in Thailand and it was an all day process to make our curries. Shopping for ingredients, sitting on the floor and pounding the spices and cooking it. Then eating it, the best part.

I can actually smell it right now. Must make curry soon.

This looks soooooooooooo darned good. Sometimes you've just got to have a great burger. And I know yours will be no ordinary burger.

I did not know that! Or if I did I had forgotten. :( Obviously you know your Thai curries like no other! Anyway, there is something so gratifying and therapeutic about making curries from scratch, isn't there? I made one last week. I don't know which I like better - red or green. I'd have to say both.

We always had red when there but now days I prefer green. We used to make red with those giant lovely Thai scampi and fresh pineapple chunks. So delicious, try it if you can get some scampi on your shopping trip.

MMMMMM! On our culinary trips we take along our coolers, of course, so will be on the lookout for scampi (which will not be the freshest as the nearest sea is about 2,500 miles away). But the combination with pineapple sounds wonderful.

Menu change -- the recipe I had called for lime zest -- my curiosity has spiked for some ingredients L2T has posted -- so a field trip to the asian market is now on my to do in the morning list.

Tonight will be enchiladas with cream/green sauce -- need to make an extra cassorole for a neighbor and this will do nicely.

zu-noodles and cilantro "pesto" for me

Sinful Choc Cake for men and neighbor.

Choc "Mousse" for me :)

I loved it ! Compared to some of my long answers on the board, it was just a telegraph. :D

I felt as if I were right there with you shopping. Sounds like fun.

and by the way, only you can use the term " higgledy piggledy" and get away with it.

:huh:( now, if I had said that, Adalaide and/or Karen would have been all over it like a cheap suit.)

Your expeditions are much like our trips to NYC..I like to hit .the wine shops in particular..then, pack up the car and haul it all back home.

Gotta keep our kitchens and pantries stocked!

and for added inspiration, this guy (whom I think resembles Johnny Depp a bit) would like

to apply for a position as a cabana boy....

eew, no! and let me tell you why:

our son goes out with us to shows (most times at bars) so last saturday night, we are out seeing a local band reunion and (YES they stock redbridge for me!!) some woman, younger than me, but not tooo much younger, is dancing beside me and making motions at harry (son, 26 - yeah, he's a hottie, lolz) who is standing in front of me close to the stage. i made a face at her and she hollers in my ear: don't you just want to put him in your pocket and save him for later? i said: NO! at that point harry turned around and tells her: that's my mom......

now. the guy who plays 'brady black' on "days" - he looks like he can wield a shovel while fixing a mai-tai...... ;) oh, hell, he doesn't hafta do anything. except get naked :D1047132-T800600.jpg

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep. 
    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.) 
    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms.
