Good news is I made some homemade mustard.

Bad news is all they had were a few yellow mustard seeds and a bunch of black

Good news is I was able to make enough to last me 4 yrs.

Bad news is it is very pungent.

Good news is tastes okay with honey.

Bad news is the honey won't get the yellow stains off the counter top :o

Good news is I learned baking soda is how to make it light and creamy

Bad news is the baking soda couldn't cover up too much vinegar.

Good news is cooking the jars in a big pot did just fine to seal

Good news is that I know to never use black seed again

And there you are more good news than bad news so I win!

Ain't that the truth. Maybe I should make some pancakes every time I get sad like the ihop commercial and just slather it in honey. I feel better just thinking about it.

Hey! I discovered my happy place

Thx beachbirdie.

At some point in my life I knew I had to change my thinking. I was 245lbs. And always miserable, hungry and depressed. I heard someone mention that in order to be happy in life, we needed to be less like a thermometer and more like a thermostat. A thermometer is a direct reading of the environment we are in but a thermostat senses the environment and changes it to favorable conditions. That is pretty much the best we can do.

I have grown up a lot since seventeen, the first time I was actually hospitalized. Eventually, I learned that a positive attitude turns life in your favor. I finally realized that I should Choose to be happy despite what my life is like. What is the point of having a negative mentality, just to torture yourself even more?

Without hope I would never had stumbled upon this forum and gotten myself set back on a path to self-embetterment. Everyone on here is very selfless and helpful. It is a good environment for hope. :)

Well feel free to learn from my mistakes. When you make catsup make sure if you use balsamic vinegar, that you read the FRONT label to make sure it is balsamic vinegar and not balsamic vinaigrette. Woopsy I grabbed the wrong bottle. Oh and do not shop when you are hungry or cook something newfrom scratch when you do not have an abundance of time. One more thing, if it says it takes "T" amount of time it is really T x 2 if you have not made it before.

Just thought I would mention it in case you get your butt in gear. Haha I was using voice keyboard and it exed out the last 3 letters in the word b***. Really? Get with the times doggonit. And to think they are supposed to be cutting edge. HA! Sharp as a cotton ball.

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
