Maybe this will help you folks get some sleep

I've tried that counting sheep thing, but they start coming faster and faster and I get all tense trying to keep up. To keep them at a reasonable speed I have to institute military-like strictness, and who can fall asleep whilst keeping sheep in strict formation?

#841309 Leftover Turkey Suggestions

Posted by on 06 December 2012 - 08:09 AM

Turkey salad sandwiches
Chop and put into spaghetti
Turkey soup, add to chicken soup, add to black bean soup
Mix up with taco seasoning for tacos
Turkey lasagna

I'm not a huge fan of turkey so I tend to use the leftovers in a way that doesn't make them taste like turkey.

#833471 Has Anyone Used Quail Eggs For A Substitute For Eggs?

Posted by on 30 October 2012 - 01:56 PM

Duck eggs are apparently awesome for baking. Some people find the tase too strong for direct eating, others don't.

And they're a lot bigger than quail eggs. ;)

#832915 Frankenstorm!

Posted by on 28 October 2012 - 10:30 AM

So I was listening to NPR, and they were discussing the coming storm. Made comments about candles and batteries being sold out in stores. Now, I could see needing batteries, because you use those, and maybe you're running low, but candles? People live in a storm zone with frequent chance of power outage and they don't have a box of candles in the closet or garage? I rarely lose power and I have at least one candle in every room, plus a small stash, well, a large stash, for emergencies. And I'm not a candle person, I just don't like walking around in the dark.

No candles in a storm zone? That just strikes me as.....excessively lame....

HEY! A NOOOOOBIE! Haven't seen one around these parts in ages...... . Yes, Warp, drinking helps whilst posting here, but is not necessary....well, not absolutely necessary.... .....

If you read along long enough you'll be convinced you have been drinking.

Well...I have learned alot from these historic postings! I have learned that we either need to drink more or post more when drinking!

I think you meant to say "and".

#826007 Defending My Choices

Posted by on 28 September 2012 - 09:59 AM

She laughed and looked at the guy working there and said "She thinks she can't have gluten. But she's self-diagnosed" and started laughing!

You look at the ice cream guy with a pained expression and say "Sorry about my friend. She won't believe that she's an @$$h*le until her psychiatrist tells her she is." Then order the gluten-free cone.

#825954 How Do You Decide?

Posted by on 28 September 2012 - 05:31 AM

...You eat anything you want, unless youhave a problem with it, then you stop eating it.

You can't base your food choices on someone else's reactions - we're all too different.

#824879 Psychosomatic

Posted by on 22 September 2012 - 07:58 AM

I agree. In that situation I tend to use the words 'it seems unlikely, but trust your reaction.'

A word about psychosomatic - How many people have had the experience, or know someone that has, of drinking one particular alcohol to excess in our youth, and never being able to drink that particular alcohol again? Or fruit juice? Or that last food you ate before developing some heinous stomach illness that took you out for days? Those reactions are psychosomatic. You taught your body that something is poison, and your brain is going to make d***ed sure you don't ingest that poison again. There is nothing wrong with it. It's a well developed defense mechanism that has kept the human race alive for centuries.

#823989 Glutened By Vapors

Posted by on 17 September 2012 - 01:26 PM

I don't think the semantics are relevant here. You got sick. You identified the situation that made you sick. I'm guessing you will avoid such situations in the future. :)

In the end, it doesn't matter what anyone else says, or does. You are responsible for your health, and you seem willing to take that responsibility seriously. You're doing the right thing. :)

#821558 Wine Barrels Sealed With Flour Paste

Posted by on 04 September 2012 - 02:42 PM

I will repeat myself. We need to be able to come here and report something made us sick, safely, without being blown off. I have lost count of the number of people who have reported a gluten reaction to wine, and they deserve better than to have the 'experts' on this board tell them they are imagining it.

Everyone reading can see both sides of the issue. Everyone reading can see that wine is not a problem for most Celiacs, and decide for themselves.

Bottom line, if it bothers you - don't drink it. If you are super sensitive, or early in the gluten-free process, you might want to avoid drinking in general, or at least some of the wines others have had issue with. You can test specifics for yourself, when you're up for it.

#821241 Cat Advice

Posted by on 03 September 2012 - 06:30 AM

Some cats don't purr, but kneading is what they did as babies to get milk from Mom, so it's a happy, comforting behavior to them.

Oh I agree, you should help them out with that right away! :lol:

Oh yes. Anything less just wouldn't be neighborly.

And I happened to read on line today that pears should be picked green and allowed to ripen indoors, otherwise they get grainy, and the inside rots before the outside is ripe. The poor man has 3 pear trees right next to his apple trees. His yard will be a disaster if I don't act.
