#908234 Cooking Class

Posted by notme! on 07 March 2014 - 09:37 AM

if she breathes in flour dust, she will probably ingest it from it getting into her mouth.   then there is the finger licking (everybody does it)  and what not.  and then she wouldn't be able to eat what she's made :(  if it was my kid, i would teach her to cook at home.  let her take auto shop :)  also very useful to learn about :)  even if she never works on cars, the local mechanic won't be able to bamboozle her!  :D

Funny man, that R. <_<   :D

 

J knows better than to do that and risk irritating me in front of guests.........because if I am mad, he 's not getting any  :lol:

 

food. I mean food. ( Now I have to go into the corner.)

 

and she yells at me........... :ph34r:

Daytona under rain delay...and tornado warning???  IH...did you blow away today? edited...just checked the radar...looks like the storm is well north of Irish's new pad :)

my bff was there - the last time she went to a race, we went to talladega and there were tornado warnings all day the saturday before the race!!  i texted her and told her to leave the track yesterday.  so she did and it quit raining LOLZ

 

we made the most awesome battered and fried shrimp the other night!!  i tweaked a batter recipe and it turned out really good  :)  with purple potatoes and asparagus (roasted evoo, s&p)  *NOTE - do not forget that you ate purple potatoes.,  it is Very Alarming!!*

 

yesterday, we made Daytona Sandwich (french bread dough shaped like the track)  it's really roasted chicken, fresh spinach, roasted red peppers, and pesto/mayo.  we started out making it to amuse the kids, but the kids are now pushing 30 and still demand it.  i made my own gluten-free version <shaped like a drag strip haha udi's french baguette)  and i made homemade pimento cheese :)

#906748 Rice Is Making Us Sick!

Posted by notme! on 21 February 2014 - 08:56 AM

we use success jasmine rice and it is labeled 'gluten free' - honestly haven't tried too many different brands.  i use 'della' brand for when  make risotto.  you may want to use a food journal if you aren't sure what's bothering you.  i have an additional sensitivity to soy but i never would have figured it out without keeping track of *everything* i was eating, even if it was just a bite of this or that.  soy was the common irritant.  i can still eat it, just a little at a time or it will cause a reaction that mimics my gluten reaction.  it goes away quicker, but when i didn't know what was causing it i was all like:  WHAT did i eat that had gluten in it???  corn is also a big culprit.....

 

soy is actually harder to avoid, i have found, than gluten!   and many people who have a corn intolerance say the same about avoiding corn/corn products.   good luck!

#906559 The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Posted by notme! on 19 February 2014 - 01:01 PM

No idea at the moment. I love noodle dishes though.

here is my 'go-to' tempura batter recipe:

 

1/4 c. rice flour

1/4 c. tapioca flour

1/4 c. corn starch

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp garlic powder <as much as you like

dash of sesame oil

plus enough water or club soda to make a thick batter. 

 

fry @ 365 degrees - works with shrimp, chicken, fish, etc

 

we tried it with beer, but it made it stick to the pan.  when it is done frying, it will still look pretty light.  we have found that they turn a little more golden/browner after removed from the fryer  :)  plus when you take them out, sprinkle with kosher salt.

yes, w8n4, if you shred your own cheese, you will know what's in it (just cheese, hopefully!)  i have a shredder - my hubs!  haha!  ;)

 

i make an awesome pimento cheese spread - i have frozen red peppers from the garden, i put onion in it, usually cheddar, mayo, sour cream - everybody loves it (but hubs because he has to shred the cheese lolz)  <nah, he likes it, too :)

#903391 Is It Possible To Get Gluten From The Dishwasher?

Posted by notme! on 21 January 2014 - 09:44 AM

From my understanding, the alcohol does denature the bonds in the peptides.  I do not remember where I learned that, so I cannot state any source, sorry.

you may not make unsupported claims on this forum, sorry, whether it is your understanding or not.  stick to facts.

#900212 How Do You Deal With The "haters"?

Posted by notme! on 19 December 2013 - 03:15 PM

I would love to say to a hater, "you know, I was like you once. I loved bread, beer and cake. Then one day, 'bam!' I had celiac disease. It could happen to you. Think about that."

i like that, too :)

 

here's the thing - it's hard not to talk about, in normal life.  if you're eating out, you *have* to discuss it at length, because you have to make sure you can eat safely.  if you're bringing your own, somebody is going to ask you why you're brown bagging it at a cocktail party.  kid's penis?  not so much (no offense - not something that is really any of my business and i probably would only know/ask if i was babysitting him and had to change his diaper)  but eating?  that's 3x per day every day.  a whole lot of discussion.  at thanxgiving family gathering, i swore my head was going to explode if one more person said "gluten" or "gluten free"  :o   i find myself constantly talking about it, whether i want to or not. 

 

on the up side, though, my pastor's wife asked me to teach a gluten free cooking class, because there are some people she knows whose grandkids have been diagnosed.  which i will be happy to do and hope it helps somebody.  i guess if i didn't talk about it so much, i wouldn't be able to help them.  so.  there's that.  -_-

#898060 Dealing With The Emotional Aspects Of Ai Disease

Posted by notme! on 03 December 2013 - 09:13 AM

(throws self on floor)  i would LOVE a gingerbread cookie!  one that i didn't have to fingerprint or hover over for fear of ("O MY GOSH don't use that spoon!!) someone contaminating it  :(  it's been a rough week (ok, month) for me.  i have had house guests pretty steadily for about 2 months (with little breaks in between) and for about a month of that time i have been down from 2 gluten hits.  talk about these people i love coming hundreds of miles to visit me and all i want to do is sleep.  and the meals?  forget about it:  stress, stress, stress stress stress.  why do they make the person who can't eat normal things in charge of the meals??  i was like:  eat what you want, i'll eat whatever.  i don't care if it's a turkey damn sandwich for every meal; anything is better than 14 people staring at you waiting for a response.  i am so upset by this whole run of visits, i'm seriously considering going away next year by myself.  i honestly felt like such a burden - we have had this thanksgiving tradition (at our house) for 17 years and i am ready to break it.  kkkkkkkkkkk.  deep breath........

 

then some sweet soul posts this:

 

Also... I found this little poster on being mentally strong I want to share

 

 

 

Be Mentally Strong 

 

1.) Don't waste time feeling sorry for yourself

2.) Dont give away your power

3.) Dont shy away from change

4.) Dont waste energy on things I cant control

5.) Dont worry about pleasing everyone

6.) Dont fear taking calculated risks

7.) Dont dwell on the past 

8.) Dont make the same mistakes over and over

9.) Dont resent other people's successes

10.) Dont give up after first failure

11.) Dont fear alone time

12.) Dont feel that the world owes you anything

13.) Dont expect immediate results

 

and it's just what i needed.  and that cookie  :)  thanx, guys, you're all awesome :)

#897700 Did Anyone See The New Study Published About Gluten In Orthodontic Materials?

Posted by notme! on 30 November 2013 - 05:57 PM

 

 

From Medscape:

"Approximately 95% of celiac disease patients express HLA-DQ2, and the remaining patients are usually HLA-DQ8 positive. However, the HLA-DQ2 allele is common and is carried by approximately 30% of Caucasian individuals. Thus, HLA-DQ2 or HLA-DQ8 is necessary for disease development but is not sufficient for disease development; its estimated risk effect is only 36-53%."

http://emedicine.med...790189-overview

36-53 percent of the 30 percent of people who carry the gene develop the disease.  that is different than what you are purporting.
