Caught a bug that was going around. I've still sort of got it. :blink: I wouldn't wish it on anyone. It'll be a week tommorow that i've had it. Though, i have been feeling better, my stomach is taking its sweet time.

Good thing you have experience with such matters - hope you are full strength very soon - you'll need it with the overload of units this semester - take care :)

Sorry to hear about yogurt -- just wanted to add -- make sure you try other dairy -- yogurt can be hard on the healing digestive tract for other reasons than dairy. I can't eat it because of my issue with high histamine/histamine inducing foods -- my damaged small intestine can't make the two enzymes necessary to regulate histamine....here are a couple links - just so your familiar with this random group of potential problem foods:

Hey, Lisa!! Looked like Dorner offed himself!

Unfortunately he took a couple more Big Bear police with him - asshat. Sad story from start to end, but glad it is done -- tired of them shutting down the roads to my sanctuary ;)

Thanks Ski

I have several of those symptoms, eczema, menstrual stuff, rhinitis headaches, and known reactions to red wine, beer, alcohol, chocolate cheese and yogurt, paprika included. And the list of things not to eat more or less describes my current food intake.

I am going to try taking the diet back to whole30 for a couple of weeks, then decide what to add or remove next.

I feel the need for an enormous spreadsheet (and maybe a week off...)

Dinner still far from my mind, might manage breakfast by 2pm :)

Yep...I had to use Excel to create a chart to track everything back when I was trialing...I'll send it to you...it's not complete because I just learned about the histamine issue this past Fall -- interestingly many of my one-off items were on the histamine no-no list.

I am very out of practice, but did used to do such things for a living (and suspect a least mild discalclia :) )

For Goodness Sake....

If anyone is seeing the nonsense that our friendly news vultures are putting out regarding the blaze that ended Dorner....Angeles Oaks which is where the cabin that burned is located is NO WHERE near the town/of Big Bear or major population. It is about 45 minutes down a mountain road -- a few cabins - maybe two campgrounds and a diner are the entirety of where this cabin was located. He likely hiked out a bit...stole a car or two down the mountain and ended in Angeles Oaks. I am not defending Dorner's actions -- just the misinformation running rampant.

Our family continues to mourn the officers killed and pray for those wounded along with their fellow officers and families.

burned-down house.....

You know, I have asked myself that same question many times. How does a body get burned so badly that you can't identify it but you can read the ID? Something seems fishy in Denmark.

I am also quite in the habit of taking the national news with a grain of salt. There was a news story several months ago about a dude in Salt Lake City who was trapped in some tunnels below the city for a few days with a compound fracture of his leg and when no one came to rescue him and he had no food and water he eventually had to get himself out. It was all blah blah blah, he's such a hero and a trooper for saving himself. The local news talked about how it is illegal to be down there, he fell off the side of a walkway and frankly is a moron for spending like three days without food and water before crawling out since he obviously could. <_< So with the difference in stories like that I just sort of shrug and always assume there is more that I don't know.

In good news, I was at the store this week and found strawberries for $1 a box and got so excited I bought 3 boxes. After I got home I realized I had no idea what I wanted them for since in the past the only reason I buy them is for shortcake and I usually either made shortcake or just bought an angel food cake. Well, I can't exactly just go buy an angel food cake and for all of my baking experience I have never made one before. :blink: So, queue google. I eventually picked out a recipe I liked and only made half just in case it sucked. (That is the way it is meant to be done right?) I popped the cake out of the oven and waited an interminable hour, I thought I might die... and finally unpanned it and cut a very small piece. It was like heaven! I just used the recipe from the King Arthur website and my pastry flour blend from my Christmas cookies from the Dec issues of Living Without.

In bad news, I don't think there will be any cake left for dessert tonight so I'm going to have to make another. :lol: What? Pancakes and fruit are a breakfast food so why not cake and strawberries? It already started as half a cake, then I was so in love I kept cutting little pieces and well to be perfectly honest, I'm not sure how it got mostly gone. :ph34r:

Tonight I'm making our traditional Valentine's Day pizza for the girls (hopefully Gluten Free Pantry crust will come through and it will be a heart shape like I used to be able to make.) I'll be making about 4 different pizzas since we are having dinner with the neighbors. One will be pepperoni (shaped like a heart), a cheese, a meat and broccoli (my favorite) and then we will have mini heart shaped brownies for dessert.

Whatever Mr Mindwarp appears with from the kitchen. I think it involves salmon and samphire.

And he brought home flowers :)

Well, there wasn't enough angel food cake left for it to make dessert tonight. :ph34r: So, I have a daffodil angel food cake cooling and waiting to come out of the pan now. I just popped a bowl of lemon curd into the fridge. I'll also get a blueberry glaze together in a bit. I'm just taking a few minutes to rest my leg before getting going again while I wait for my cast iron pan to get hot. Next step is to get the lard melting to make fried chicken. I'll have a baked potato but I'm sure that he'll want french fries. If I have time I may even get around to some fried green beans.

This is as good as it gets for V day for us. It just seems silly to me to celebrate beyond a meal with mildly more than usual effort since our anniversary is this month every few years.

Left my electronics shut down last night...

Dinner was:

Steak - everyone's favorite

Baked Mac and Cheese - one son's favorite

Cauliflower "Fried Rice" - my favorite when hubby makes for me -- which he did and added halved baby brussel sprouts -- YUM!

Strawberry Cake with Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting for extended family.

I licked my finger when making the frosting -- no adverse reactions to report :D

Oh...tonight I'm stealing Alex's idea -- was going to make pizza for the other son yesterday as a Valintine, but ran out of time -- hadn't thought of making heartshaped ones, so toight we'll have heartshaped personal pizzas for everyone - except me ;)

Tonight will be easy. I am dying for some mac and cheese so I think I'll throw some together this afternoon. Besides that I always make enough fried chicken to have some the next night because of how labor intensive it is to make. And cake, there is still plenty of cake. Know the song I want a hippopotamus for Christmas? I've got that stuck in my head now only I think I'm going to BE a hippopotamus for Christmas if I don't stop baking. :lol:

Anyone know what "sweet rice flour" is? I have a recipe for lime bars that uses white rice flour and sweet rice flour (about 1/4 of the total flour) for the crust. WF didn't have any. I think I'll try it with just white rice flour and see what happens.

Synonymous terms: sweet rice flour; sticky rice flour; glutinous rice flour; i.e., any rice flour that isn't called white or brown :D

They didn't have any flour named those. Think it will work with just the rice flour?

I've used regular white rice flour in similar circumstance -- worked fine.

We had fish, fries, hush puppies and slaw. OH MY GOSH was it good, I was in HEAVEN! We ordered the hush puppy mix from from a Grist mill from back home and it makes the BEST hush puppies we've ever had! I just recently realized we could order it online. We did add finely chop onion to the batter. HAVE MERCY. They were VERY light and fluffy and naturally gluten free because they don't process any wheat in there! We also ordered grits, cornbread mix and rice. It is the best we've ever had. I would share a photo but it won't let me post it unless I have an URL.

In case anyone is interested,

Salmon, rice, stir fry peppers, zucchini, mushrooms.

And an evening of singing and unexpectedly catching up with a load of old friends, some of whom I haven't seen for over 15 years. It was great :)

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
