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!!!

    • Second Panel has come back...advice?
      Update!  I went to my follow up with my gastro. He's hesitant to diagnose celiac without an endo, but said he will redo the blood work after I'm several months gluten free. My DGP IGA should drop after being gluten free, right? This could confirm the suspicion? I know the TTG levels drop, but want to be sure the DGP also drops on the diet.  Thanks! I've already replaced all kitchen equipment and pantry/fridge items. Early on I didn't realize the potential for cross contamination in restaurants. Now I do, so eating out has been put on halt for a bit. 
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      Yes.  You have to be 100% gluten abstinent when you have Celiac Disorder.  It gets easier to be gluten abstinent, not because you get used to it but because of the negative effects that ingesting gluten causes when you accidentally eat something with gluten.  Nothing tastes good enough to go through a glutening.  As your system heals it will become less tolerant of your occasional lapses into gluten consumption--accidental or otherwise. You have to take this seriously.  You get used to it and there are some wonderful gluten-free options out there.  But you can't go back to gluten and stay healthy.  It just doesn't work that way. Good luck.
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      I  think you need to watch where you get your medical info!    Of course you can't introduce gluten back in. And  of course you have to be strictly gluten-free and not intentionally eat gluten.   "The gluten-free diet is a lifetime requirement. Eating any gluten, no matter how small an amount, can damage your intestine. This is true for anyone with the disease, including people who do not have noticeable symptoms. It can take weeks for antibody levels (indicating intestinal damage) to normalize after a person with celiac disease has consumed gluten. Depending on a person’s age at diagnosis, some problems, such as delayed growth and tooth discoloration, may not improve. The gluten-free diet requires a completely new approach to eating. You have to be extremely careful about what you buy for lunch at school or work, eat at cocktail parties, or grab from the refrigerator for a midnight snack. Eating out and traveling can be challenging as you learn to scrutinize menus for foods with gluten, question the waiter or chef about possible hidden sources of gluten, and search for safe options at airports or on the road. However, with practice, identifying potential sources of gluten becomes second nature and you’ll learn to recognize which foods are safe and which are off limits." http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/living-with-celiac/guide/treatment    
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      FlowerQueen is correct.  Once diagnosed with celiac disease, you should never consume gluten again without the risk of becoming very ill (osteoporosis, liver damage, lymphoma, etc.).   I think everyone has trouble in the beginning sticking to a gluten free diet.  That's because gluten is in so many processed foods.  It takes time to learn to read labels, make a safe kitchen, learn to eat out, get your family to support you.  I would advise reading out Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum.  It contains valuable tips for becoming gluten free.  Also, check out the University of Chicago's celiac website to learn about celiac disease.  Knowledge is power!   Everyone has different degrees of damage, but I would say that learning the diet and healing can take months to a year or longer.  The good news is that this is an autoimmune disorder that is treatable -- avoid gluten at all costs!   Take care and welcome to the forum!   
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      Not sure what you mean by perfecting your diet? Do you mean accidentally eating gluten?   As to re-introducing gluten again, if you have celiac disease, please DO NOT ever re-introduce gluten again. It's an auto-immune disease, not a food intolerance. It will damage your gut again if you do.  Hope this helps.
