Yes, everyone's pinkies are shorter than the other fingers,  but if you look at the picture, see how they come up halfway of the middle segment.?

I guess most people's (the ones I have examined anyway--lol)  come up to the first segment.

 

Now, I am probably going to start staring at people's fingers and getting asked "what the hell are YOU looking at?"  :lol:

 

I checked my boys this morning...we all have below the line or shorter -- thinking I may be checking everyone I meet for a bit --- especially the over 70 never been sick a day in their life crowd!

I'm making chicken tacos with some of the gluten-free taco sauce I picked up at Sprouts Farmers Market Saturday.  I've only had my Celiac diagnosis for a week, so I'm still working out the gluten-free cooking and such.  I love cooking, though, so I don't think it will be too hard.  I've got some gluten-free brown rice tortillas, and I'll try the taco meat in a burrito style.

 

I think I'll be coming here frequently to get some gluten-free recipe ideas.

 

Welcome Debra!

 

Always great to have another join this thread :)

Rerun here.  Grilled Deitz and Watson Bratwurst, spuds and salad. 

 

I made hummus with roasted red peppers and chick peas tonight.  I soaked and cooked the beans myself, my Irish griller toasted the red peppers. no cans involved.   I feel like I deserve a cape or crown or something.

Pizza with potato, fontina and white truffle oil. It is so simple, but tastes so ridiculously good.

 

I'll be traveling to see my Mom, family and a few friends in New England for several days.

Thank God the peeps I will be staying with are all G F :D Having lunch with my friend and fellow c.comer, Gemini on Sunday.

 

My first solo trip since 2007 (when things went horribly

wrong) and I am very excited .The hubs has a well-stocked fridge and can handle himself just fine.

He will not miss me too much as Saratoga Race course opens this week and the golf course calls his name often.

 

Stay well, everyone!!. I am going to the land where there is no wifi (mom stubbornly refuses to become attached to a laptop)

so, I'll see you when I get home. Be good.

xx

It is Comic-Con Week around here -- my 18 year old graphic novelist's 13th Con!  I'll be going for one day -- I've missed the past three years do to my silly body -- might need to borrow Mr. Freeze's suit to make it thru the heat of The Hall -- been along time since the boys and I had the run of the place with no lines or crowds!!

 

Dinner last night was steak and cauliflower fried rice as the other son delayed starting the crock pot chili so they got to share my dinner -- so chili and cornbread tonight.

 

Tomorrow is Mom's Birthday Party here -- thinking I'm going to change my super strawberry cake to a peach version....should be interesting....the strawberry cakes started on her 80th two years ago -- with an adorable "Betty Boop" salt/pepper set as cake decor as she was born the same year as Betty was introduced and Mom looks strikingly like Betty ;)  Hmmmm what to decorate the peach colored cake with is the question.

Wish we were neighbors so I could bring you some mangoes to put on top of that cake, but I'm thinking Mom will love to stick to the tradition of Betty Boop, no matter the flavor of the cake.

Going with a Princess theme for Mom...she loves following the Royals....so I see a sparkly crown along with a "Princess Jacqueline of Cambridge" theme...thinking I'll get a little smile with a bit of eye twinkle from her -- been a very tough year...I am looking forward to that twinkly smile.

 

Dad's sponsoring top quality steak :)

Lots of veggies and a beautiful salad -- Mom's favs.

 

Saw a nice recipe for figs and brie in tortillas on FB....I'll try to make those for starters if time permits.

 

Drive Safe Irish!!!

I'm posting early today, because I have a feeling my day is going to get crazy.  My husband is going to grill some steaks, and I'm going to do baked potatoes, using my spin on this recipe-http://www.food.com/recipe/sliced-baked-potatoes-58121, along with some steamed spinach.

Thai griled beef lettuce wraps. The marinade is brilliant - lots of tamarind, lime, etc. I made Nuoc Cham and will serve with julienned carrots and vermicelli.

The other day I made Caribbean spicy shrimp with pasta. Am loving coking from so many cultures and ethnic groups.

Peach Cake turned out great...

 

BRM Vanilla Cake mix

4 Eggs

1/2 cup Oil

4 peaches -- pureed

 

Mix well then I stirred in by hand another two peaches - chopped.

 

Butter/Cream Cheese Frosting -- next time I'll be adding peach puree to the frosting...I ran out of ripe peaches...so total peaches needed would be 8

 

added three drops yellow and one drop red food color to both the cake and frosting to brighten the peach color...but not necessary if you are avoiding food dyes

 

Tonight is either roast chicken or chicken enchiladas...not sure which yet.

Scallion sounds right, 6 to 8 inches, skinny and green with a small white bulb, great in stir fry.

Gamon steak, peas, egg, new potatoes, mushrooms.

At home tonight, but last few days have been dinner on the beach and late nights for kids. Trying for an early night, but it is mighty warm here now....

That peach cake sounds wonderful. I checked and I can totally do BRM vanilla cake mix. There are really good natural alternatives to food dyes if someone really cares what color the cake comes out. I'm sure it would be perfectly delicious no matter what color it is though. :)

 

I've got a sick husband today so I'm not sure what I'm doing for dinner. I may just be worrying about me which will probably turn into a burger and a veggie. I probably sound like a broken record with that, but hey... it's quick and easy beef. Which means quick and easy iron. Maybe if I find my inner spunk I'll work up to a meatloaf. Either way, I will be on the phone with the doctor before I'm supposed to take my afternoon iron pill and with any luck since my infusions are approved I'll not have to take it. Which means I'll be able to enjoy my dinner! :D

    • Rectal bleeding and abdominal pain
      I had a lot of bad abdominal pain for at least 6 months.  A few of the ER nurses told me to watch soy.  I think they were on the right track because I ended up having a few other food intolerances besides gluten causing the pain.  Food intolerances are tough to figure out.  Could be anything, but there aren't tests to figure it out if it is a food intolerance aside from eliminating it for a while. That being said, it sounds like you are on the right track going to a GI doctor.
      I wonder if they checked your gallbladder? I'm assuming they would have done appendix with it being in that location.
    • Nothing left to eat
      Buckwheat cereal is what I go to a lot.  Oats may or may not be ok with you.  If you go to a gluten free store there are lots of gluten free cereal options.  Instead of cow's milk there is almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk, hemp milk, soy milk.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I agree Katie, the gluten challenge isn't worthwhile for some people.  Regardless of your test results, I think you know the answer is not to eat gluten anymore.  I hope you recover quickly from the damage.

      I am glad you are feeling so much better!  Your posting will encourage others.  Thank you!
    • Last posted 2013 - Improving health
      When I first started this journey, roughly 11 yrs ago with symptoms, I had no clue. Eventually, having no luck with doctors (hypochondriac or psychosomatic), I googled my symptoms over and over looking for something... ANYTHING... that would give me a clue. Among other issues, my insides would not move, I was turning gray, felt like death, and had a persistent cough. I can't remember who but someone had posted on the forum and I found some of my symptoms. Eureka, I immediately began a gluten-free diet to see if it made any difference. Of course that was a journey, not realizing what products contained gluten. Long story shorter – first I went gluten-free, symptoms began to reappear, then it was soy (first organic was okay, then not), symptoms reappeared, took out corn, symptoms reappeared, then it was all grains. So the last couple of years I have been grain-free plus no sulphates. Actually, truth be told, my Celiac pharmacist gave me the recipe for health. I asked her if she liked a certain product. She answered, “I don't know, I have never tried it.” I asked her what she did use. She replied, “Nothing out of a box, a bag, or a bottle.” And that has pretty much been my life for the last couple of years. There is the odd product I try but it always has an after effect and I have to way the consequences against the enjoyment of it. I am one of those who react to 1 crumb in the butter, flour dust in the air, sulphates in anything, sometimes things that don't even seem like they would be a problem, like avocados and blueberries when I am contaminated. January 2016 I began this recitation. It is now May 5th, 2016 - Here I am 4 months later and I feel like screaming to anyone who will listen, “Things are improving!! My gut is healing!!” So what happened?? Someone suggested digestive enzymes. My insides were so compromised that I couldn't eat much besides fruit, veggies, and meat; all plain, all without being touched by people other than me. I could barely stand salt at times when I was compromised. Haven't been to a restaurant in years since I am not in a city that would have one to cater or understand this much of a problem. I started digestive enzymes but I read the label wrong and started with 5 first thing in the morning. Whatever... I began to notice improvements in what I could eat. Not anything different but just that I could eat without feeling ill or having my gut shut down. I stayed on those for a month and a half.. then I picked up a parasite from someone living in a very unclean apartment and visiting there and helping to clean. Well, that was a huge battle. I had to eat to discourage parasites. But in the process my insides began to heal dramatically. I was eating blackberries, drinking garlic keefir (which I couldn't have done 5 mths ago and gave me the first clue my insides had improved substantially), drinking oil of oregano or peppermint oil drops in a glasses of water, eating cabbage and green roughage. Drinking water with apple cider vinegar in it and Aloe Vera juice. After a couple of weeks my insides were a whole different story. I had a feeling of wellness that I hadn't had for years! I FELT like trying to eat something different. So I decided to try Gluten-free Rice Chex. Haven't had them in years.... and I am so happy! I can eat them!! (Not to say they are healthy, cause they are processed crap) but I didn't get sick and that was the amazing part. So now I am beginning to try a few things that would have set me back previously, I have made my own crème brulee because I have always been able to eat eggs. But the sugar was causing problems, but now it's okay. The issue I have now is that I want to try things too fast so I am having to exercise restraint. So here is it – parasites are very common, everyone has them however whether they cause problems depends on your immune system. Does it not makes sense that they would cause leaky gut? An over abundance in the gut would destroy gut tissue and take nutrients from a person and possibly put holes in the gut leading to food reactions? Digestive enzymes help to destroy the protective coating around parasites. Foods that discourage them or kill them are blackberries, garlic, cabbage, oil of oregano, peppermint oil, aloe vera juice, Braggs apple cider vinegar and more (google to find). I found medication didn't do anything so I turned to all the other. So this is how it is today. I don't suggest it is the answer to anyone else's problems but when I found this site, hidden in the posts was the beginning of the answers for me.  I may still be gluten, soy, corn intolerant but I am feeling so good now and I just thought I would tell someone.  I just wanted to share. Thanks for reading.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
