i remember you, dani - so sorry, sweetie i believe my grandfather died of untreated celiac, he had intestinal cancer that spread everywhere before they even knew he had it. he always had 'bathroom issues' - he was 82. my mother, who never smoked a day in her life, hardly drank, etc, died of lung cancer. i never questioned or made the connection because i was diagnosed with celiac years after she was gone. but maybe if i had known she might have had it checked. (it certainly would have made her feel better that i finally found out what was wrong with me all the years she worried like crazy about me..)
saying a prayer for you and your family. (((((hugs))))))
'ibs' is what they told me i had when they didn't know what was wrong with me. also 'you must have colitis' - which neither was true. i have other food sensitivities that i figured out using a food journal. every person is different. maybe try that? i kept track of EVERYTHING i ate, every ingredient, and used a scale from 1-7 with 4 being 'eh' lolz - that way i can be picky - i'll have this but skip the peppers, etc. i also have a reaction to soy that mimics a gluten reaction.
we grew radishes one year - i'm not a fan, but i thought maybe if i did something different with them instead of just eating them raw. what do you do with them when you have a big harvest?
the napa cabbage did not wilt and die, but regrew multiple shoots and is now trying to re-bolt. jerks.
wow, they have a sh-ton of mint varieties! i was looking for: spearmint lolz had to sort through probably 12 different 'flavors' to find it! i can't remember what variety i had a few years ago, but it took over! oregano did, too, it will grow underneath the weed barrier and pop up anywhere it can! maybe it's our climate? too close to kentucky, they are trying to be 'juleps' lolz
Ok...there is a way to mess up the easy upside down cake.....
use round cake pans that have a bottom that is removable -- doh! at least my kitchen smells like carmel this morning -- not going to be fun to clean out the oven -- will have to wait until later -- off to cram a bit more and play taxi driver.
Happy Monday All
