#677758 The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Posted by aeraen on 23 February 2011 - 11:40 AM

It WAS going to be a simple soup and salad night for my family, but then I found that recipe for Brazillian cheese bread in another thread here, and I have to add it to our menu. They look soooo delicious, and I have everything we need right in our house.

#677699 Tricked Into The Blood Test And I Need Resources!

Posted by aeraen on 23 February 2011 - 09:39 AM

Does it bother anyone that she was tested for something that she clearly told the doctor she did not want to be tested for? That the doctor followed her husband's request, in her absence, against her will? :angry:

Sounds like a clear violation of professional ethics to me and that alone, aside from the doctor's evident lack of understanding of celiac disease, would be reason enough for me to find another doctor.

#677657 Taco Seasoning?

Posted by aeraen on 23 February 2011 - 07:21 AM

Our family has always enjoyed our tacos on soft (flour) shells. When I went gluten free, I began frying up a couple of corn tortillas flat, and making tostadas instead... same fillings, just a different conveyance to the mouth ;) . Teenage son decided to try one and liked it better, so we simply stopped buying flour tortillas and make tostadas instead of soft-shell tacos. One more step towards gluten free dominatino in my household. :D

Side benefit, the freshly fried corn tortillas are a far tastier snack than store bought chips, so we fry some extras up in the hot oil after dinner. They don't last as long, of course, but are delicious for a snack the next day.

Oh, and back to the original post... we make our own taco seasoning, too. I love the idea of using ground masa to give it a little body. I will try that next time I mix some up.

#675186 Almost Cried At Work!

It is interesting the different reactions the same situation.

I am one of those who does not get upset at all... in fact, I encourage people to completely forget about it. It makes me uncomfortable when people focus on what I can not eat.

I have had more people try to accomodate my dietary limitations, and leave me in a quandry for it. They will make "Rice Krispie treats" not realizing that Rice Krispies have malt, and I can't eat them. Or the myriad other foods that sound perfectly fine, but are really not gluten free. Of course, when someone goes out of their way to make something that they thought was safe, they are either disappointed, or worse, angry, that you have to turn it down. That often leaves them hurt or grumbling that you simply can't be pleased (and, maybe, even assuming that you are "making it all up for attention.")

If I were in a wheelchair, I would not be angry that people in my office are walking around me. I look at my gluten-intolerance as an inconvenience, not a major disability, and can not begrudge my co-workers their pleasure in a piece of cake in my presence.
