I love this thread -- hubby and I call it the "Hen Party" -- my dear MIL had a "Bridge" group for over 40 years that never played bridge -- took me about a decade to figure that out ;)

:lol: Cute about the "bridge" group. I should refer to this thread as "bridge" when talking about it to my husband so I don't have to say ten other words. ^_^ Lazy? A resounding yes.

This is the first forum I have joined that is really and truly fun. The other few forums I participate on are about travel and food and quite serious and passionate.

You can't be passionate about fun?? :blink::huh:

Sorry - I worded my thoughts incorrectly. The others I am on can become heated because they are so intensely passionate about food ingredients and such ilk. Passionate to the point of anger. This is calmer, less intense and more relaxed (generally speaking). Believe me, I am passionate about fun! And food, too. ^_^ It is great to be passionate in what you do and do not believe in but sometimes the manner in which it comes across can be hurtful as I've seen on boards. Man, I am not explaining myself very well tonight. Sigh...

Seriously, if we lived near each other we would have wicked good fun.....and this is of course, also my favorite thread.

At night, I mumble in my sleep sometimes.....bacon, cabana boys, juniper berries, croatia, cheese, private compound.......

I think so! I am passionate about fun. I am passionate about everything I like.

I think she meant it in another way, though.

Like "angry".

You explain yourself quite well -- completely understand -- hard on forums sometimes as it is hard to get the tone of the conversation when you can't see the person's mannerisms and animated gestures (I don't mean the rude ones)

....yeah, we do not like that much on here either....and that's why this thread is the best.!!

Thanks. It is so true that mannerisms, tone and even personality at times do not get across as you would like. And usually in the evenings I am in so much pain that my synapses have shorted out. :(

unfortunately we all understand this too -- all the more reason to giggle whenever possible :)

ps...any roosters reading along are welcome to join in the fun -- I happen to have three wonderful male chefs in my house -- of course they are all afraid of sticking their toe in a "Hen Party" -- all welcome to this delicious and fun thread!!!

oh yes, laughing is a pain-reducer indeed. Takes the mind off it for a bit.

So true. So, since I'm really hurting, I need to laugh more at this moment. My husband is downstairs and once he comes up I know he'll make me laugh. He is so very good at it. But until then, do or say something funny. Go on! Not wanting to take Tylenol #4 with codeine.

Think of the reactions of those " foodies" to some of the dinners we have posted on here. Like the gluten-free pretzels and wine or a bowl of Chex cereal

Something funny..... my topical allergies to hay are flaring up a bit... the other day I carefully wiped out all the dog crates, then pro-actively powdered each dog with diatomaceous earth, because I don't want to hit them with chemicals during the time of year that it's cold enough the fleas die if they go outside. We then took all the sheets off the bed and the comforters and washed them, and hung them out on the line (freakish sunny days here in early January, usually this is rain every day). Also washed the cat's blanket that she sleeps on the bed, and wiped down the bed rails. Then remade the bed and topped it with a fresh, white and pink handmade quilt we'd won a long time ago in a raffle. Not really my style, but it was clean. Put out a clean blankie towel for the cat on top. Who is very territorial about The Bed. This cat barely allows us to use it. :rolleyes:

Then we went somewhere, for only 2 hours, and the 2 larger dogs, who are Not Allowed in the bedroom, and who were not crated, snuck in there, and not only jumped UP ON THE BED, they nested on the white quilt, and they must have been under the Christmas tree first :blink: because now the quilt is covered in fuzzy black dog hair, dirt, hay wisps, diatomaceous earth dust, and pine needles. There is probably drool on it, too.

These dogs HAVE their OWN giant dog bed already in the living room ! :angry: Where is the damned guard cat ? Sleeping in the other bedroom, the slacker!

Our horrid, vicious, but very pretty little dog (he calls her Lindsey Lo) peed in my roommate's bed on NY Eve when the fire works went off! I came very close to peeing my pants laughing about it, because he turned into Elmer Fudd. So Karen, if you're watchin, I don't sleep with him.

As of 2/12, tolerating dairy, corn, legumes and some soy, but I limit soy to tamari sauce or modest soy additives. Won't ever try quinoa again!

He can't figure out what is gluten and what isn't, he likes Spaghettios, your dog doesn't like him, and he can't even warm your bed.....why do you keep him? We need to get you a new "room mate". Maybe one of the cabana boys?

:lol: Certainly you know by now--after all these years--that cats live in "opposite world". Whatever we want or expect them to do, they do the opposite. Chances are, she conspired with those 2 dogs to pull a prank on the humans. And she nearly peed herself laughing about it, no doubt. I often ask Bella ,our kooky kitty why she does the things she does, but she refuses to talk, that little brat. When we had our lab and 3 cats in the house years ago, I swear those cats bullied that big old sweet dog, one of them shoving her aside on her dog bed, taking up most of the space. Gracie would look at us like "why, oh why did you bring these wretched things into the house???

He can't figure out what is gluten and what isn't, he likes Spaghettios, your dog doesn't like him, and he can't even warm your bed.....why do you keep him?

As usual, Karen sums it up nicely and asks the brilliant question no one else would ask --but was secretly thinking. :lol:

Irish, that's amazing, we could be sisters!!

I vote for more fireworks :).

Mr Mindwarp cooked a steak in avocado oil, and it was amazingly tender. He said it is because the avocado oil cooks at a higher temperature. I did my lamb at lunch with it and it was great too. We had the steak from the same pack done in olive oil last night,and it was fine but nowhere near as tender. Is this a known feature?


- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!

- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol

- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.

- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.

- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)

- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

As we haven't had them for about two weeks, I thought it was about time to begin tormenting you! Here. Let me describe them...

Between the slices I will be placing sliced garlic, bay leaves, fresh thyme leaves and season with salt and freshly-ground black pepper. Then I will slowly drizzle wonderfully zippy green olive oil directly from olive trees that are about four miles from our Croatia house. Then roast until the slices become lightly browned and crisp around the edges; however, the interiors will remain buttery tender. And to finish, I will sprinkle with fleur de sel. Does that help? :P Just doing my best to practice kindness today. :lol:
