In Topic: Lunches To Bring To Work

15 October 2014 - 01:01 PM

I make sandwiches on toast... turkey or tuna or whatever... and put it in my flexible lunch bag with a bottle of frozen water. I have 2 bottles of water that go from my lunch bag back into the freezer... I don't drink the many times refrozen water. Last weekend I made individual chicken pot pies and froze them after cooking/cooling. They heat up well in the microwave. I often take leftovers and nuke them. Salads always work. As it gets colder, I'll take leftover chili or soups. I have some big crockery mugs w/ lids so I don't have to reheat in plastic.


In Topic: Gluten Free Ebola - South Park Episode

15 October 2014 - 12:52 PM

I'll have to look for it! I'm one of the sick twists who's LOVED the show. I took my 3 kids to see the movie years ago and there was ONE other couple in the movie and when they got done with the first song... the couple walked out and we had the entire theater to ourselves.

 

This is awful... but I was on the PTA thingy in the kid's elementary school and they were arguing about something and I was thinking about one of the Christmas episodes on South Park and how everyone was arguing that you can't do/say this or do/say that and someone asked, "Okay... is there anything else we need to get rid of??"  The teacher who always had Mr. Hand (and is now a woman?? I've not watched it in a while) said, "Yes... can we please get rid of the Mexicans?" So, believe it or not, one of the PTA members said, "Is there anything else?" And before I knew it was coming out of my mouth I said (in the Mr. Hand teacher's voice), "Yeah... can we get rid of the Mexicans?" There was complete silence for a few seconds and I wanted to fall thru the floor as I realized not everyone watches South Park. "SOUTH PARK... it's a joke," I stammered.


In Topic: Thanksgiving Dressing/stuffing

09 October 2014 - 05:46 PM

I post every year... "if this is my 13th year of being gluten-free... this will be my 13th new stuffing/dressing recipe!"

 

I grew up with Pepperidge Farm stuffing mix. I used to make like a quadruple recipe and bake whatever didn't fit into the turkey in loaf pans so we could slice off a hunk and eat it with turkey and gravy.

 

Now... my 3 daughters and I are gluten free. I've tried traditional recipes w/ bread and quite a few corn bread recipes. NONE have been remotely passable after good old Pepperidge Farm. Thanksgiving has become my least favorite "food" holiday.

 

THIS year I'll use the Gluten Free on a Shoestring recipe my daughter made for us recently. It was really good. Now... if I can only find something resembling French bread in North Nowhere Arkansas... I may ask my daughter to send me some baguettes from Philadelphia... they'll be stale and perfect when they arrive... right???


In Topic: To Biopsy Or Not?

09 October 2014 - 05:34 PM

I visited a gastroenterologist at age 49 with symptoms of unrelenting diarrhea. He did blood tests and scheduled a colonoscopy because I was so close to the 50 year old screening age. After the colposcopy, he told me he had good news and bad news. I opted for the good news. He told me he could stop my diarrhea... the bad news? I couldn't eat wheat, rye, or barley ever again. He did not recommend endoscopic biopsy as my blood levels were so high. I did end up having an endoscopy and biopsies a few years later (heartburn issues) but my doc said it really wasn't necessary at the time of diagnosis.


In Topic: Do The Bread Cravings Ever Go Away?

09 October 2014 - 05:29 PM

I wasn't diagnosed until age 49. I'd spent years making beautiful loaves of rustic country and beautiful challah bread. Does the craving go away? It does NOT. Will I ever eat those fragrant wonderful loaves again? Nope. It is what it is...
