I'm so curious to hear your thoughs on this, Sora. It tastes as though it has about 390 layers of depth to it, yet it is simple to make. One of those things that seems as though you've slaved over it all day (and no need to tell anyone you didn't!).

Oh yeah, I can't wait!

I'm thinking IH should head west in that beautiful disguise and fantastic ride - she can pick me up and together we will cruise the SoCal beach communities for gentle men with all the afore mentioned attributes - anyone else up for a road trip???

I'm in but can we wait until I make those short ribs? I'll bring them along.

Then we can throw the bones to the dogs. :P

Most definitely. In fact, if you like them, perhaps you and I could make them for the rest of the group while they go man hunting. I'd rather cook. And the bones can go to the dogs only after I've finished with gnawing on them. I'm such a bone gnawer. My husband knows that all his ribs and such come to me before they get tossed. ^_^

I would be glad to help cook for the gang but they have to promise to bring back a young Harrison Ford. Please. ;)

Um...we've not warmed up to -10 since the middle of October except for one day recently. It is usually about -22 but next week is to be -30 and colder. We'll likely go through the usual -30 to -40 for ages. Not looking forward to it one little bit. :angry:

Travel, where in the heck are you Russia? LOL. I thought -14 was cold. -30 makes my bones hurt just thinking about it. Heck I guess when it's into minuses, it all feels the same.

Stay warm!!!

    • How the gluten-free diet can cause new heartburn / GERD: sodium acid pyrophosphate
      I never really had much heartburn before my diagnosis of Celiac and consequent dietary changes. But since then, I have discovered Udis, Van's, Canyon Bakehouse, and many other gluten-free brands. About a year ago I began eating 2 waffles every day, 7 days a week with my breakfast. The waffles I was eating were Nature's Path and Van's, both which use very high amounts of sodium acid pyrophosphate. The waffles are mostly air and carbs. Within a few weeks I began to develop recurrent, very painful heartburn that would popup constantly. My tolerance for acidic foods declined--whereas previously it would take much more acidic foods to cause heartburn, now any amount, no matter how small, would cause heartburn. And it kept getting worse with each month to the point that I began to worry about my health. I developed GERD that wouldn't go away for 24 hours after eating an offending food. The offending foods list kept growing bigger and bigger to the point that almost anything would cause heartburn and some degree of GERD. So I eliminated almost all foods containing sodium acid pyrophosphate and the heartburn and GERD stopped. I can eat tomato-based foods again with either no discomfort or 5% of the discomfort I used to experience, and I can eat foods on the offending food list again with no heartburn at all. Despite searching the internet for hours for an answer to what was causing my heartburn and GERD, I found nothing definitive and had to figure it out on my own. Did you know there is absolutely nothing at all anywhere on the internet connecting sodium acid pyrophosphate with hearburn? To my knowledge this will be the first ever post on the topic on the entire internet. Either that, or both Google and DuckDuckGo are suppressing the information. Also, did you know that sodium acid pyrophosphate is an ingredient found in almost all aluminum-free baking powder? That's what I get for trying to eliminate aluminum! I am making the switch to single-action aluminum-free baking powder soon--single-action doesn't have this ingredient, but it's less convenient to use unfortunately. I'm interested to hear if it causes anyone else heartburn as well. I'm glad to be heartburn-free and comfortable for the first time in a year.
    • Do this, scientists! (experiment to confirm/deny the existence of "leaky gut")
      Leaky gut is a condition that we have little knowledge of.  The symptoms this condition could cause are not agreed upon. Some health practitioners say it could cause "wide range of long term conditions [1], like chronic fatigue syndrome and Multiple Sclerosis. The possible cause list NHS gives is much more accurate: inflammatory bowel diseases – such as Crohn's disease infections of the intestines – such as salmonella, norovirus andgiardiasis  coeliac disease  chemotherapy medicines chronic kidney disease   radiotherapy to the abdomen (tummy) immunosuppressants (medicines that weaken the immune system) HIV/AIDS  cystic fibrosis   type 1 diabetes sepsis complicated surgery As you can see, the list includes a lot gastrointestinal conditions. Gut becomes "leaky", letting too big particles into blood system, and possibly these particles act as poison (because they are not  supposed to be in the blood, thus the possible bad effects). Now, to confirm this disease, I was amazed that this test hadn't been done before:
      Feed the supposed "leaky gut" patients (e.g. celiacs with damaged bowel) with IV fluids. Because these fluids go directly into the blood stream, and the particles are "elemental" (glucose, vitamins, amino acids... all supposed to be in the blood stream anyway), they shouldn't cause any symptoms. If they notice improvement, the problem is in the digestive system (I'm also including stomach). If not, such condition as "leaky gut" doesn't exist. Rather the problem is how the body reacts to the "elemental" particles. E.g the most common explanation would be diabetes (the IV fluids just caused elevated glucose levels), that also should be tested. Also the "candida theory", because its proponents say the candida is in the WHOLE body, including the blood stream. To eliminate this, patients should take anticandida meds, then again go on IV fluids, and if they NOW get better, it was candida. If not candida, and not diabetes, nor allergies, we have a new condition we aren't even aware of (body reacting to elementary particles with no obvious reason). However, if the patients DO get better, the problem IS in the gut. Now, it could be celiac disease, and the improvement could have been due to eliminating gluten from the diet (because IV doesn't contain gluten). The question remains that did the bowel actually leak any particles? (not just gluten causing autoimmune reactions and malnutrition, and explaining all the  300 symptoms).  Or the patients just get better due to NOW acquiring all the necessary nutrients.  To eliminate these possibilities, they should feed the patients with gluten-free food (or even better, with elemental diet, because it could also be lack of digestive enzymes or something else). If they get worse, the problem is STILL in the gut, and thus the "leaky gut" exists. If not, "leaky gut" is probably a non-existent condition.
    • So Hershey's Miniatures Aren't Gluten Free?
      I am really ill just now - 20 minutes after eating 2 Hersheys Milk Chocolate Miniatures - checked on the Hersheys site and the milk choc. minis are NOT included on their list of gluten-free products -and no, I am not sensitive to dairy, so that's not it.  NO MORE for me... it is not the "end to a perfect day" but it isn't fun.
    • Candida test
      I noticed after I posted this that there are some topics about this posted before.  There is a search function above.  But, if anyone has anything new to post that would be appreciated.
    • Negative tests, possible celiac?
      I had a celiac blood test around may 2015. I'm 20, male. AGA  -        35       range 0-20 TTG IgA -     5      range 0-20 I believe total IgA was normal. I have been gluten free, avoiding gluten best I could for about  2 weeks before this. On june 2015, did a biopsy, results said no signs of villous atrophy, doctor convinced I don't have it. Been gluten free for about a month before this, doctor only said to eat a 'normal' diet beforehand. I know that this could yield false negative results, but I don't think the amount of time is enough to hide the damage?   Had symptoms since I was 4-5 years old, very skinny , pale, constipation, diarrhea, inconsistent nausea (from eating wheat products, soy sauce), migraines, stomachaches, night terrors, sleepwalking. Symptoms were most evident till around 10 years of age. During my teens, the symptoms seemingly start to fade, rarely nauseated, random bouts of diarrhea 1-2 times a month or so.   Been gluten free for up to 8 months now, decided to start eating gluten again just to see how I would feel/ for retesting. Almost on day 2, no noticeable symptoms.  Ate gluten heavy for a month, a year before, breads, pasta 2-3 times a day, lost over 3-4 kg, started feeling overly lethargic during the day/after eating gluten. Sharp stomach pains and mild diarrhea once or twice.   I'm quite certain it's celiac, but if its not, and after reading about how non celiac gluten sensitivity might not exist,i don't really know what to think anymore. Any opinions/ similar experiences would be appreciated.
