WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO EAT!!!!! JEEZ! I don't think I could do that if I wanted to. I'm a total carnivore and cheese hound.

I am a total carnivore too...love my meat...I think just reducing the overall load is what counts, so I'll do it in the other areas mostly.

Just popping in really quick, will have to come back and read to catch up....

An important tip about steaming the tortillas, do not let the water boil up into the steamer basket! That would be very bad, you will end up with a pile of mushy gooey ground corn. You want the water below the bottom of the steamer basket and as it boils let the steam come up through the little holes. Hopefully that makes sense?

Susan, they aren't very expensive (I don't think). I have a metal one, not sure what material, and it adjusts to fit different pan sizes. like an unfolding flower looking thing, hard to describe, bt it comes in handy. I steam vegetables with it, and tamales, and now the corn tortillas.

Rinne, beautiful picture!!!

I must confess I have not followed the thread about Megan, I haven't had much time to stray from here. I will have to read what is going on. She will definitely be in my thoughts and prayers as well.

Karen, looks like you are the trouble maker in Rachelville :lol: We have all thought about you and your "D", I wish somebody could find you a solution.

Be back later!

Rinne,

It's so good to finally see you. :P

Jeny,

I don't know about your situation with the different computers.

Karen,

Did you see the post about gliadin foods that someone posted earlier.

What's the thing with altoids? Aren't they a breath freshener? I've noticed on other threads that you are the altoids lady.

Susan,

How are you doing today. What does TMI mean anyway?

Rachel,

Have fun today.

Cissie,

Hope you feel better real soon.

Julie,

I'll keep that in mind....steaming corn tortillas.

Donna,

You've been doing lots of research lately. Did the plums settle well with you?

Patti,

Sounds like you are feeling good too.

Cecile,

For when you get a chance to get on here. Hope you're feeling good today.

Robbin,

Are you there? I forget whether you posted earlier today or not. Are you feeling better today?

Vincent, Ryan, Picard,

I trust all is well with our "fellow" residents.

All the other gals I missed, hello.

Debbie,

Can we add you to the list of jobs for Rachelville?

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

Yes, it was a little slow at work today, so when there's no work I can play. Well, I think the warning from Penguin was kind of applicable (reminding me of the prune affect, lol)...but that was okay because I'd had C for a couple of days. :lol:

wait....R-ville is perfect, so we don't need counselors, right?? Karen's job can be the Altoids Sales Rep and Dispenser of Good Times.....but she won't have to sell them, just give them out freely, you know, at the parades and all, and the dances at the Town Square.....good times!

We have something in common--My baby sister is 8 years younger than I am. I always took care of her when we were kids, I took her everywhere with me! We have always been very close. I have another sister who is 4 years younger. We also fought a lot when we were kids, and only now, in the last 2 years or so are we finally getting to be close.

Patti, yes it is great to have sisters, I feel very fortunate to have them. :)

Andrea, what an adorable picture of your children, the littlest one looks like he might be a little mischievious. :)

Cissie, I hope you are feeling better.

Thank you for the compliments, it's nice to be seen. :)

Oh and I don't get the Altoids thing either, does this mean I have to go to Google to find out? You mean I have to leave Rachelville? :lol:

December 2008, while seeing improvement on the gluten free diet, I did not recover and so in December of 2008 began the SCD and now have hope for recovery.
