Maybe the brain fog just lifted this morning?

 

" You're out of the woods

  You're out of the dark 

 You're out of the night. 

 Step into the sun,

step into the light ...."

 

:)

 

 

Nuttin' like that fog lifting for good.

I'm going into the light....

 

Oh,  I will need to strap some parasols onto my chair as I am terrified of the sun.  And, no offense Irish, I would like California since the humidity is lower, just saying...

I do not do humidity. Like... ever. There is simply no excuse for water in the air. Utah is beautiful year round. Plus we have skiing. Lots of people say we have the best snow on earth, better than CO anyway, all they get is our leftovers. :lol: I don't do snow either, but I can keep the cocoa hot for the snow bunnies all winter long.

 

Plus we have Moab and Arches National Park. Tons of forests and canyons and that sort of thing too. And cities for us civilized folk. The kind with In N Out.

 Nonsense!  it gives curl to your hair and makes your skin all dewey.

Wrong!  It gives kinks to your hair and frizzy ends and makes your feets swell :ph34r:

I must be "different". :ph34r: my "half-Mediterranean" roots and all?? Neither my Dad nor I felt this way in the humidity.

 

NOTE: We are coming NORTH in July and August to see the ponies at Saratoga and visit family & friends

in Mass, NH and Cape Cod.

BINGO! I think that some of us are just different. I couldn't stand the weather last time I visited PA and it was only in the 80s most days. It was all I could to to drag myself from bed to the shower to a chair to sweat in all day.

 

I hated the humidity growing up, and I hate it more now. To be fair though, my hair lost all its curl when I came to Utah. :( Straight as a board now, and totally tragic.

 

But hey, if it doesn't make you hate life I say enjoy it!

I want to thank everyone who responded to my post i really appreciate all your feedback. I don't know anyone else with celiacs. Alot of the time i feel like people think i am exaggerating about how i don't want any food with gluten around me. Trying to explain that a simple crumb can make me sick. When food gets brought into the house like pizza by my teenage boys makes me cringe. It's just nice to have people that understand and know more about the disease than i do. I can tell you all are going to be invaluable to me and i thank you.:)

    • It looks insanely good. First time I've wished I was back in London for ages Omg I have to leave the thread I've not eaten yet and now I crave steak  
    • It has always been odd to me that the US, the land of innovation in the world, cannot make great gluten free bread. Of course, no one cares about that except Celiac nation.  I am not saying there isn't good gluten-free bread here because there is.  In the 12 years since my diagnosis, it has come a long way.  However, every time I visit the UK, I am amazed at how much better the bread is.  It more closely matches the flavor and, most importantly, the texture of gluten bread. In fact, there were a few times when I ordered something with bread in a restaurant, and I panicked after taking a bite, thinking they had gotten the wrong bread. No, they didn't...it was just that good!  For those near to London, I implore you to visit here:  http://www.beyondbread.co.uk/  You see those French baguettes?  I had a panini sandwich made from one of those and it was almost a religious experience.    They have won awards for their bread and I can believe it.  I tried to get them to come to the US and open another bakery but I don't think that's going to happen. They have 2 locations......Fitzrovia and Islington.  The Fitzrovia location is very near to the Goodge St. station. Now, hop on the Tube and go there! The meat IS good here, JMG.  We just have so many cows. Cattle country. Now they have created dry aged steaks, which are pricey but they are like the crack of meat. Once you taste how tender they are, you have trouble going back to regular, non-aged meats. They are so tender, they cut like butter. As far as the antibiotics in meat, you can easily buy unadulterated meat here. It's the cheaper, mass produced meats that do that. I know my food and the one thing I love about Europe is the food. In many ways on certain items, the quality is unsurpassed!
    • I was thinking of trying it like 1tbsp maple syrup and upping the egg whites by 10-20g Should make a giant 9"pancake basically with maple flavoring. Not tried it yet but it should work. I was thinking making that version for giant pancake (to thin to pour into smaller ones) that you cook low and slow and can perhaps even use for a breakfast pizza crust with a fruit topping and a creamcheese like spread or just as a pancake, or cut it into sticks for dipping. Should freeze well for toaster reheating later.
    • I'm sorry that I can't lay my hands on it now but I did read a peer reviewed study on morbidity rates amongst non gluten-free compliant celiac patients that said that 1 slip up per month was linked to quite a scary increase in risk of serious complications up to and including cancer. That's not to say that will happen, just that there are potentially serious consequences for celiacs that don't conform to the diet.
