What does your jerky tastes like?

I have never made it in my life. Willing to try anything, am I!


Your post brings back preparations for a backpacking trip when we were staying at my parents' house. I made beef jerky and granola and (I think) gained new respect from my mom :lol: She tasted the granola and with an astonished expression said "This tastes good" and made it for herself ever after. Recipes are long since gone, but I should still be making my own granola except I can't have most of the ingredients any more.

I can relate to being thrilled by a mom's kudos on our cooking. :D
Mine was here for Thanksgiving.
Her amazing apple pie was legendary and always my Birthday cake ---and I actually cried at the prospect of never having that flaky deliciousness ever again when I was Dxed. She went gluten-free after my diagnosis, so no more pie was made.
Fast forward to last week...
I finally perfected the pie crust (thank you ,fattening Lard !! and The Bronskis' recipe)

and when she said "OmyGahd, this is better than mine..."

I almost fainted. I said "I'm sorry, what did you say, Ma?"....just to hear it again....and

I thought, well, I could die right now knowing my Mom had given me the ultimate compliment.

That is so awesome!!

I have a similarly cool compliment I got. I grew up in my grammy's kitchen. (More or less. It's where all my best memories are.) Every Saturday morning we would bake together all morning then feed lunch to whatever men were around. Sometimes just my grandpa, sometimes it seems hordes of them were there helping out at the sawmill, cutting firewood, out at the shop or whatever. Well one afternoon my grandpa said after he polished off his apple pie that after all these years, that was the best pie she ever made him. With the grace I have never seen anyone but her master (Grace is her middle name after all) she told him thank you, but your granddaughter made that pie. :D I knew then that I had "made it" so to speak.

Now I just need to finish mastering that gluten free. B)

Hahaha, my mother now calls me for cooking advice. That is not how I had imagined our role
reversal would start! :D

(men- warning! girl talk follows!)

Love2, I have to go next week for further testing on an abnormal Pap that came back. I am also
ordering myself not to freak out! Hard, isn't it? I'm only 28, but there is so very much cancer in
my family that they are going to want to start testing my breasts soon, so will likely have to find
someone who does breast thermography, which is a heat imaging scan. It's a rapidly advancing
imaging technology. I'm much too young for a mammogram to have any kind of accurate results.
I also have a fibrocystic breast, so that would mess up a mammogram too.

Funny how we just can't stay on topic, eh? :D :D

Oh, so sorry about cancer running in your family. My dad died of cancer, too.

Just saw a show on TV about thermography and it is now being outlawed in areas in Canada because it gives so many false positives and false negatives. Brand new research as of a few days ago. Not to scare you or anything but I would personally think twice about it. Many clinics have been instructed they must immediately halt the procedure. Interesting. But if you have no cysts or other stuff mammograms are not painful - my first one was a breeze. The digital mammograms are incredibly accurate. The tech told me that they are so sensitive they pick up tiny hairs that are invisible to the naked eye.

My sister had an abnormal pap and had to go for further testing and it was nothing. It is far better that they seem to be thorough and not take any chances.

I know what you mean about staying on topic. Where else can you discuss bowel movements, breast massage, migraines and food on the same threads? :lol:

My Mom has always called me for cooking advice. I was the cook in the family since I was very young. Friends and people I don't even know call me several times a week re food-related questions. Love it!

Tonight we are traveling to India:

Authentic Chicken Curry (with homemade Madras and mango chutney) with Toasted Almonds
Curried Potatoes with Mustard Seeds
Cardamom-Scented Roasted Carrots

And, this is not Indian, but we are having fresh-out-of-the-oven Country Batard bread. It is nice and light and airy.

I'd love to see that show. Generally, thermography is never intended as a replacement for mammograms,
it is intended to be supplemental, or helpful in cases where a woman is too young for accurate mammograms,
like myself. It would likely be used in conjunction with ultrasound for someone like me, until I reach an age
where mammograms would be effective. Hopefully, by that point smushing of the boobies will be a thing of
the past, given all the damage mine have already endured.... :ph34r: I am curious as to why there is an outcry
against thermography in Canada but have not seen anything about it in the states as of yet. Off I go to read!

It was on the news and a documentary - will do some digging to see if I can find the info to post. It was very interesting and the first I had heard of the strong opposition to it. Sometimes you have to wonder whom to believe?

ETA: Here is one short article - will do some more looking.

One more...this is the main one.

Beans and steak.

Dried bananas from a different brand dissapointed me and now I'm bloated and gassy. At least I don't have D, nor cramping,.. Well, maybe beans aren't a good idea, but it's what I can eat...

And this is why we thought it would be okay to call it Dinner and a Chat :lol:

Seriously, girls....as someone who has had abnormal paps many times, a surgical breast biopsy and a mass removed... and who now undergoes mammos (the new digital mammos and ultra sound) sometimes as often as every 6 months, I can honestly say DO NOT PANIC or lose any sleep--just go, have the test and be grateful they have tests to detect these anomolies so early. Most times, it's NOTHING.


Honestly, i don't think the men venture into this thread very much :lol: I could be wrong.


Nope, I think you're right! :lol:
