In Topic: The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

22 November 2014 - 01:05 PM

Now that I have my stove working again I am going to make one of my famous bacon egg and cheese sandwiches. Schar bread untoasted, smeared with LOTS of butter. An over easy egg with melted extra sharp white cheddar. Two (unless I splurge and have three) strips of bacon cooked very crisp and crumbled on top of the melted cheese. Then I'll turn the sandwich upside down so I can peek at where the yolk is. I'll eat around the edges and be VERY careful when I get near the yolk. When I do get to the yolk I'll tip it up and take a tiny bite so the yolk doesn't explode. Rather gravity will assist it into my mouth.


You have to build these carefully. If you don't crumble the bacon, a bite might put pressure on the yolk and break it prematurely. And of course if you don't put the bacon on top of the melted cheese it'll fall out. If you toast the bread it'll be too hard and break the yolk. Lots of experimenting went into this complex recipe. :lol:  :lol:


But seriously, I am having so much fun with food now that I can eat so many "new" things.

yup - thank you for bolstering my point.  you don't understand it either, but you are a big fan?


the bottom line is:  if you lie on your application, you are in violation of the LAW.  if the insurance program was actually not discriminating, your application would consist of 2 questions:  your age and if you are male or female.  any further questions are SUPPOSEDLY not applicable.  yet illegal if you are not forthcoming.........  <WHAT???


obviously, obama doesn't personally offer health insurance.  i'm sure he's not on an ACA policy even if he did...  


apologies to the original poster.  celiac isn't going to cost your insurance company any $$ because the only treatment (so far) is the gluten free diet.  but it might cost you more, because, just like banks, insurance companies are going to charge whatever they can get away with.

You are confusing subsidies with ratings and how they charge premiums.  They are not the same thing.

you just said:  money, money, and paying money.   you can call it something different, it is costing more $$....


my kid bought into the *dream* of getting affordable health insurance.  he was confident that he could get health insurance if he switched jobs.  he can't afford it - month 3 it was insurance or rent, because all of his necessary care wasn't covered, so his out of pocket was too expensive.

Sorry, but they can not rate him, period, end of story.  It is illegal and if they are you need to report them to the state insurance commissioner.  His diabetes supplies should be covered under any plan that is not grandfathered....not sure where he is trying to get insurance...



In Topic: Do You Risk Eating Meat That Says "shared Equipment"?

15 November 2014 - 01:45 PM

so, you would eat it if it didn't say 'processed in a shared facility' ......  ?


Do you know that for sure?  Have you been to the plant?  Can you confirm that the machines do not process gluten in some way?  The package says produced on a "shared line"--yes, it might be a CYA, but do you have evidence that it is not?...not to mention the "broth" that many "plain" chicken is packaged with that is NOT gluten-free, which might be the culprit vs "breading".

have YOU been to the plant??  what is the machine shared with?  other meat?  all broth doesn't contain gluten.  if it does, it has to be labeled.
