Topics I've Started

North Syracuse Area

31 August 2012 - 06:43 AM

Hi gang,
It's been a while since I've been on here! Hope you all are doing well.

My girlfriend and I (both of us are gluten-free) are travelling to a wedding next month in Cicero, NY - North Syracuse area. Most of our meals will be taken care of, but we're still going to need dinner one night, and maybe some other stuff along the way. Any suggestions as to where we may be able to go for a good meal?

Thanks guys!

Need To Vent Because Mom Is Not Helping

26 December 2011 - 07:40 PM

Sorry gang, I need to vent a bit here...

My mom seems to only understand what gluten free means if I walk her through every single step. She wanted to make a meatloaf the other week, which she did fine with - no CC issues at all!

She's sometimes really good, sometimes really not good. Over the last 4 weeks, she wanted to send cake home with me after Thanksgiving dinner, asked me if I wanted a piece of pie, and offered me a cheese sandwich today, none of it gluten-free. Today I made a mistake and just went off. I felt bad and apologized to her. Mind you, I gave her Living Gluten Free for Dummies to read 5 MONTHS AGO! She still hasn't read it. That was part of why I got so upset today. On top of this being my first gluten-free Christmas, it's been a few mentally and emotionally tough days.

Please tell me she is going to catch on that when she keeps offering me food I can't eat, it's like poking me over and over in the shoulder. And that I'm going to learn how to deal with it better. Gaaaah!

Meatloaf Help

15 December 2011 - 03:26 PM

Hey gang,
My mom was so excited to make a meatloaf for me earlier this week. It is her signature dinner fiod! Until she started to actually make it ... apparantely she used half a bag of glutino bread crumbs, and was still having problems shaping the meatloaf. It tasted just fine, but definitely fell apart fairly easily. Any tips on how to hold a gluten free meatloaf together?

Thanks guys! And everyone have a safe and happy Christmas!

Generic Omeprazple

23 September 2011 - 03:24 PM

So I've been taking a generic Omeprazole for the last couple of weeks, and have had two reactions from CC in that time. I've gone through everything I've eaten and taken, called manufacturers of meds...and the only conclusion I can come to is something, either CC or a binding agent, in the Omeprazole. I usually get it through a mail order pharmacy (won't do THAT anymore), and it was a different brand when I got it refilled - Dr. Reddy's. When I called Dr Reddy's, they told me that there were no gluten ingredients, but that they receive the ingredients from other sources and could not confirm the ingredients were truly gluten free. The way she described it was that all they do is "put it [the drug] together." Well, that's comforting...

Has anyone else had problems with this brand?
