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 ;)

:lol: Cute about the "bridge" group. I should refer to this thread as "bridge" when talking about it to my husband so I don't have to say ten other words. ^_^ Lazy? A resounding yes.

This is the first forum I have joined that is really and truly fun. The other few forums I participate on are about travel and food and quite serious and passionate.

Sorry - I worded my thoughts incorrectly. The others I am on can become heated because they are so intensely passionate about food ingredients and such ilk. Passionate to the point of anger. This is calmer, less intense and more relaxed (generally speaking). Believe me, I am passionate about fun! And food, too. ^_^ It is great to be passionate in what you do and do not believe in but sometimes the manner in which it comes across can be hurtful as I've seen on boards. Man, I am not explaining myself very well tonight. Sigh...

Seriously, if we lived near each other we would have wicked good fun.....and this is of course, also my favorite thread.

Hubs knows when I have been reading it because I am laughing so hard

At night, I mumble in my sleep sometimes.....bacon, cabana boys, juniper berries, croatia, cheese, private compound.......

I think so! I am passionate about fun. I am passionate about everything I like.

I think she meant it in another way, though.

Like "angry".

Love2 and Ski and I were typing at the same time!! LOL

You explain yourself quite well -- completely understand -- hard on forums sometimes as it is hard to get the tone of the conversation when you can't see the person's mannerisms and animated gestures (I don't mean the rude ones)

Me, too. I am extremely passionate about what I like as well as adamantly passionate about what I do not like at times, too!

We know what you mean, sweetie-- :)you mean "aggressive" in the approach to the point of not listening to another?.

....yeah, we do not like that much on here either....and that's why this thread is the best.!!

Thanks. It is so true that mannerisms, tone and even personality at times do not get across as you would like. And usually in the evenings I am in so much pain that my synapses have shorted out. :(

Yes! Exactly. Aggressive. Again, I could have summed it up in one word. Ah, well...

unfortunately we all understand this too -- all the more reason to giggle whenever possible :)

ps...any roosters reading along are welcome to join in the fun -- I happen to have three wonderful male chefs in my house -- of course they are all afraid of sticking their toe in a "Hen Party" -- all welcome to this delicious and fun thread!!!

So true. So, since I'm really hurting, I need to laugh more at this moment. My husband is downstairs and once he comes up I know he'll make me laugh. He is so very good at it. But until then, do or say something funny. Go on! Not wanting to take Tylenol #4 with codeine.

Think of the reactions of those " foodies" to some of the dinners we have posted on here. Like the gluten-free pretzels and wine or a bowl of Chex cereal

Something funny..... my topical allergies to hay are flaring up a bit... the other day I carefully wiped out all the dog crates, then pro-actively powdered each dog with diatomaceous earth, because I don't want to hit them with chemicals during the time of year that it's cold enough the fleas die if they go outside. We then took all the sheets off the bed and the comforters and washed them, and hung them out on the line (freakish sunny days here in early January, usually this is rain every day). Also washed the cat's blanket that she sleeps on the bed, and wiped down the bed rails. Then remade the bed and topped it with a fresh, white and pink handmade quilt we'd won a long time ago in a raffle. Not really my style, but it was clean. Put out a clean blankie towel for the cat on top. Who is very territorial about The Bed. This cat barely allows us to use it. :rolleyes:

Then we went somewhere, for only 2 hours, and the 2 larger dogs, who are Not Allowed in the bedroom, and who were not crated, snuck in there, and not only jumped UP ON THE BED, they nested on the white quilt, and they must have been under the Christmas tree first :blink: because now the quilt is covered in fuzzy black dog hair, dirt, hay wisps, diatomaceous earth dust, and pine needles. There is probably drool on it, too.

These dogs HAVE their OWN giant dog bed already in the living room ! :angry: Where is the damned guard cat ? Sleeping in the other bedroom, the slacker!

I've got one of those dog's sister along with a sister of your cat! Same house -- different address!

Our horrid, vicious, but very pretty little dog (he calls her Lindsey Lo) peed in my roommate's bed on NY Eve when the fire works went off! I came very close to peeing my pants laughing about it, because he turned into Elmer Fudd. So Karen, if you're watchin, I don't sleep with him.

He can't figure out what is gluten and what isn't, he likes Spaghettios, your dog doesn't like him, and he can't even warm your bed.....why do you keep him? We need to get you a new "room mate". Maybe one of the cabana boys?

:lol: Certainly you know by now--after all these years--that cats live in "opposite world". Whatever we want or expect them to do, they do the opposite. Chances are, she conspired with those 2 dogs to pull a prank on the humans. And she nearly peed herself laughing about it, no doubt. I often ask Bella ,our kooky kitty why she does the things she does, but she refuses to talk, that little brat. When we had our lab and 3 cats in the house years ago, I swear those cats bullied that big old sweet dog, one of them shoving her aside on her dog bed, taking up most of the space. Gracie would look at us like "why, oh why did you bring these wretched things into the house???

(snort) Lindsey Lo (and you are taking waaay too much joy in this peeing episode, M (and I don't blame you one bit) :lol:

As usual, Karen sums it up nicely and asks the brilliant question no one else would ask --but was secretly thinking. :lol:

Wear a better disguise this time. L. Not the ski goggles, silly--yer just callin attention to yerself. You'll blow our recruiting operation sky high.

If we have to come bail you out for stalking charges, our little nest egg we started for the construction of the compound will be shot to hell.

You need sunglasses and a scarf or a floppy hat. Blend in. Look like you're part of the scenery. Don't call attention to yerself. I used to work for a detective agency.

Here is me when I did a stake out a few years ago.

Irish, that's amazing, we could be sisters!!

I vote for more fireworks :).

Mr Mindwarp cooked a steak in avocado oil, and it was amazingly tender. He said it is because the avocado oil cooks at a higher temperature. I did my lamb at lunch with it and it was great too. We had the steak from the same pack done in olive oil last night,and it was fine but nowhere near as tender. Is this a known feature?

As we haven't had them for about two weeks, I thought it was about time to begin tormenting you! Here. Let me describe them...

Between the slices I will be placing sliced garlic, bay leaves, fresh thyme leaves and season with salt and freshly-ground black pepper. Then I will slowly drizzle wonderfully zippy green olive oil directly from olive trees that are about four miles from our Croatia house. Then roast until the slices become lightly browned and crisp around the edges; however, the interiors will remain buttery tender. And to finish, I will sprinkle with fleur de sel. Does that help? :P Just doing my best to practice kindness today. :lol:

    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥
