Steak, sweet potato (just as well I am not doing a rotation diet too, but note to self...) spring greens, carrots, sprouts, coconut oil.

Is it just me, or does tthe coconut oil have a salty aftertaste?

Not that I notice, hon.It just tastes "coconutty". Is it spoiled? Although that's hard to do--it has a long shelf life.

Tonight we are having:

Lamb Chops that we were going to have last night then my pain went haywire. :angry: So, we are having the lamb that I marinated in a whole schwack of lovely things (including orange juice, juniper berries, gin, fresh thyme and rosemary, garlic) that will have a Dijon sauce brushed on it and then covered in a yummy breadcrumb mixture and broiled.

Along with the lamb will be lentils braised in red wine, et. al. and spicy Japanese daikon and cucumber salad.

well, let's see.....I get the emoticons by googling words like " bacon emoticons" and dancing boy here popped up

and I get my uh ...thingers..... elsewhere ;) he he he

I use "thingers" often at home. I mean the WORD "thingers". That didn't come out right methinks. "Thingers" can mean so many things in so many situations. It is quite...er...interchangeable. ^_^

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!

When I food shop I am in the zone. Sometimes I get tears in my eyes when I see the amazing produce and exotic ingredients that I have only read/dreamed of. Can you imagine you and I taking over NYC? I have not been there but would fly there just for the food. You and I could do some serious damage.

"Higgledy piggledy" and "gobsmacked" are amongst my favourite British words. Here goes...

Higgledy piggledy. Higgledy piggledy. Higgledy piggledy. Higgledy piggledy. Higgledy piggledy.

Onion, garlic, ground beef and fresh tomato chopped. Add Thai fish sauce. You make the egg part in a wok, coating the wok by rolling the wok over the heat to cook the egg until it is very thin, add your meat mixture, fold the egg over to make a square packet and eat with Sirachai sauce. Delicious!

Well, I am gobsmacked at this display of shenanigans from you, young lady. :lol: I can't stop laughing.

The first time I heard a man in Ireland say "shut yer gob" to someone, I nearly fell off the bar stool laughing.

That sounds incredible. I have not made Thai omelettes but you have inspired me to do so. I just told my husband about it and we're going to make some this weekend. Sriracha sauce....mmmmmmmmmm...

(

You said " roommate". Is this a " just helping pay the rent" roommate? Or a sleep in the same bed roommate? Because a sleep in the same bed roommate might be sleeping in his car.

He's the roommate formerly known as boyfriend, significant other for 12 years. Aak! Common law...Aak!

Last night I told him he is just "other" now.

Today he told me I can just call him SUD for Suck Up Danny.

Here's the part that makes me realize that he'll never, ever get it.

He explained that since he knows I can have hamburger, he thought salmon burger would be okay. I questioned him like Perry Mason: "Did you ask the guys at the fish counter if it was gluten-free?" "Did you read the label?" "Do you realize I bought you peepers so you can read the labels?" His answer was "no" on all accounts except the 3rd.

I concluded with that and asked him to please use the scratched non-stick pan I threw away 2 plus years ago for cooking it. (He retrieved it.) Naaaa....he used our grill.

Anyway, back to original topic, I served very spicy Indian Chicken tonight with lots of veggies. SUD doesn't care for spicy food, Indian food or veggies. I cooked the veggies in the sauce. I made his head sweat. I gluten-free curried him!

Over dinner, I inquired if the chicken was better than the salmon burgers or loaf. He said it was. (Maybe a SUD statement.) I asked if it had ever dawned on him that groceriy stores usually use fish or meat they're ready to throw out for loaves and burgers.\\

Maybe I'll stop tormenting him tomorrow.

I am skilled in the art of a$$-kick. Lemme know where and when. ;)

C'mon down. Whoop up on him! Give him a little lesson in Gluten anger.

There's a gluten-free Expo in S. Florida in Feb... 2/17/13, c'mon down. We'll have a whoop up, then go to the festival.

WTF somebody lives in Florida and they come home with, first, salmon,and secondly, glutenoid salmon ? :blink: That takes some special kind of talent. Then they put this stuff on the grill as if heat can make the problemo go adios. Is 2013 the Year of Magical Thinking ? You'd better tell him not to show up next with imitation crab <_< :angry:

I bucked up and grocery shopped today. It can't be blamed on him. He had spaggeti out of a can until he went to college, and doesn't know the difference between an avacado and an artichoke. The rest of his life he survived on BBQ,

I blame it on his evil mother. She never included him in cooking and hated cooking, always went for the quick way out. He grew up on canned spaggeti. No wonder he's not right.

I got me one of those! I swear he practically breaks out in a sweat if a vegetable that isn't either lettuce or a fresh, uncooked carrot gets within about 10 feet of his face. He was mostly living on frozen pizzas before he met me. I have vastly expanded his horizons and am slowly working on him. I swear though... omg... he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 9 and suddenly his mom would do anything to get him to eat. That meant catering to his every last food whim. It makes me crazy to think about, so mostly I don't.

I love this thread -- hubby and I call it the "Hen Party" -- my dear MIL had a "Bridge" group for over 40 years that never played bridge -- took me about a decade to figure that out ;)

    • 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!
