What Have You Done?

Recommended Posts

Only my family knows this one. So I almost cant believe I am sharing it. :ph34r:

Years ago I had a roommate. It was her house and I rented a room with access to the rest of the house. She and I were two peas in a pod. Both clean freaks. :D The house was kept spotless. One night at around 10 pm, I was in my room and felt a lot of gas coming. But for whatever reason, it wouldnt quite come out. :( All I had on was a long t-shirt cuz I was ready for bed. So in an effort to relieve myself of the horrible gas cramps, I assumed a bent over position facing the wall. When this proved fruitless, I figured I would "help" out by gently spreading my cheeks a bit. <_< Well what happened next :o still makes me laugh so hard I have to pee myself (almost). Now at the time, it wasnt funny at all. I was horrified. That perfect white wall was covered. And it smelled really bad. :blink: My bed covers were ruined too. :angry: And I was dog tired and ready to sleep. It was 10 pm and my roomie was watching T.V. in the living room. So I slink out and nonchalantly get all of the cleaning gear. Bucket, mop, paper towels, Pine-sol. Well, she knew I was a super neat, but this got her attention. And she loved to clean. I remember praying...oh please Jesus...please dont have her want to help me "clean my room"....please oh please......I remember telling her....I wanted to really clean my room good, that I was having issues and looked at it as therapy. So enjoy your show and dont mind me........ :P

Gluten Free Pop Tarts!

1/2 cups of gluten-free all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/2 Softish butter

3 tablespoons of cold water

*Cut the butter into the flour and salt. Add the cold water and form a dough (If too sticky refrigerate the flour for about 30 minutes so its cool enough to roll out with out sticky problems) When ready, roll it out into a square/rectangle. Make sure the surface is floured or it will stick when you try to lift it! Cut the dough into an even number of pop-tart shaped rectangles. Place rectangels on a cookie sheet that is greased or floured (or both).

Now spoon any fruity jam into the center of each rectangle, leaving room on the sides because it will spill over as it bakes if it is too close to the edge. Now top with another rectangle or square and seal the edges with a fork. You may want to poke holes in the top to prevent air bubbles.

Bake at 450 degrees for about 10 minutes. When they come out let them cool a bit ad then spread some icing and sprinkles (if you like, which i think it makes them taste real)

****I would recomend toasting them in a toaster oven, because in regular toasters mine fell apart. *****

So yeah! do this, and add a little imagination!

POP-TARTS!

ENJOY!

Hi there Kim, what a yummy recipe thanks for posting it! How much butter do I use though? And ya those babies are getting frosted

Why is it that the sight of food in a supermarket always induces the urgent need to go. I couldn't begin to count the number of abandoned shopping carts in markets from my mad dashes to the loo! Often when I come back they have vanished or I can't even remember where I left them!

Oh my gosh! I thought I was the only one! I have usually managed to make it out of there...but it takes everything I have to get out and make it home!

This was my mother my ENTIRE childhood. I used to swear that I would never embarass my children like that....yup, another dream squashed. And yet, she refuses to think my celiac is from her side of the family (Type I diabetes in her dad ) or that she could have it. Perhaps it is from both (some type of abdominal cancer from the other grandfather).

One that no-one was around to witness (thank God!), was after a pizza lunch and involved my entire group of co-workers outdoors during the United Way Day of Caring. Afterwards I went home and told everyone that I was sick, which of course I was. That was in 2004 just as I was getting sick but not knowing why.

Not having that kind of stress (except when glutened) is great! Totally worth it.

Allright, I am inappropriately resurrecting this thread because I KNOW there's some more good stories out there! Come on boys and girls, share with the class! What crazy a** **it have you done in the name of gluten?!?

Well it's a really good read! I'm glad you revived it :-)

I gave my bunny a bath (shampooed him three times) when I found out his pellets contained gluten. His fur got really poofy and even a little curly after the bath. Bunnies aren't supposed to be showered, the poor thing!

And a few days ago, at a barbeque, our friends gave my husband a chili spice powder for his meat, and I shouted out with my eyes wide open "WAIT!" before he had a chance to put any on his steak.. they all looked really surprised at my reaction. I told my hubs that he should sprinkle that under the table in case it contained gluten, because the wind might have carried some of the powder onto my steak!

It took me a while to figure out why my 7yo dd kept holding her breath at various times in the grocery store, then it dawned on me--the bread aisle and the baking aisle :P

HAHAHAHAHA :-D She's so cute!

    CB, sorry to hear you're still having problems.  Deficiency of Vitamin B12 can cause diarrhea.  It's a frequently overlooked symptom.  Did you discuss with your doctor what to do about the B12 deficiency? Shots or oral supplements?  ...
    I think you should consider getting tested for celiac disease in order to help rule out gluten ataxia.  Why?  I just had anemia.  No GI issues with gluten.  I never would have guessed that I had celiac disease.  
    My mom has Graves.  I much prefer Hashimoto’s!  I had a few thyroid swings and it is easier to be hypo than hyper.  My Mom has permanent eye damage as a result.  If you have Graves, get treatment which may include surgery.  Her ferritin levels a...
