Topics I've Started

Heating Pads

07 July 2014 - 12:06 PM

I was talking to Adelaide through email a while back, comparing aches and pains. We both agreed we didn't like electric heating pads, especially at bedtime. Well, it turns out that she's been making the kind filled with buckwheat that you put in the microwave. She sent me a couple and they are WONDERFUL!


Even in this heat, or should I say especially in this heat because of the fan blowing on me, I need to keep the back of my neck warm because of my cervical ribs (a birth defect). I can lie in bed with all that nice cool air blowing on me but still apply heat to my neck now. I'm cool, my neck is warm, and even though there's no one there to see it but the cat, they are pretty. Addie knows how much I love elephants so the square one (the other is long and narrow - I can use it for my jaw) is covered with flannel that has elephants on it. 


 I had always heard about these things but until I found out my friend actually makes them I never tried one. Now I know why people love them!


So anyway, I wanted to give a public thanks to Addie, for making my stiff and sore old bones feel better!

Ice Cream Maker?

05 July 2014 - 10:35 AM

So a friend is bringing me some home made vanilla ice cream. She is using organic milk so there is no corn contamination from vitamin D fortification. But she just mentioned that she has used a recipe in the past that had flour in it. So my question is, can an ice cream maker that has had flour in it ever be cleaned well enough to prevent CC? I won't turn the ice cream down and hurt her feelings, but if it isn't safe I'll be giving it away later. (She's bringing it to my shop where I have no freezer so I'll be running home with it as soon as she brings it, while a friend watches the shop for a few minutes.)


But if it IS safe it'll be a great treat.

Wow. Just Wow.

So I saw an article about gluten-free in what used to be my local newspaper. In the article there is a recipe printed, and it has WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR!!!!


I can't believe the stupidity!!!

We have a usually overpriced Shopko here in town, but I get my Planter's cashews there because they are the only ones who carry the BIG can. This morning I happened to look in their vitamin section and was blown away! They have their own brand of supplements. They make two lines, one called Shopko Naturals.


"Contains no sugar, salt, dairy, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, preservatives, artificial colors or flavors."


I've been paying $20 plus for vitamins at the health food store. These are $7.99!!! I grabbed some B12's and some biotins this morning but I'll be going back tonight for some D3, plus I'll see what else they have.


I have also heard that grapeseed exract (NOT grapeFRUIT seed extract) is a very good anti-inflammatory supplement. I need that because I can't take asperin or NASAIDs. The only one at the health food store has corn. I hope Shopko has one.


Anybody have any experience with grapeseed extract?

Don't Know If This Will Be Good

I heard the ad for today's "Fresh Air with Terry Gross" in NPR this morning and they are having people from America's Test Kitchen on to talk about the best gluten-free recipes. In my area it will be on at six PM. It looks from the comments that it has already aired in some areas and that they talked about the "fad" of gluten-free. But maybe there will be some good tips on cooking. I didn't read the whole article here yet, but they did say King Arthur was the best flour they have found so far (and that's the one I use :) )
