That does look pretty nasty. And what about the fried green beans? Do you suppose people actually eat that stuff? :blink:

Hi Leah: I saw you are posting, I am eating the green m&m's! :D:D:D Throw in an orange now and then

No, cheese fries with bacon and downing in real ranch dressing sounds good in a "but it would probably kill me" sort of way...

Deep fried mac and cheese just goes against all that is holy :P

Hmm.. deep fried mac and cheese looks exactly like something I would want to eat :lol:

And that leads me to why I'm thankful to be a celiac... No matter how much I want to put junk like that in my body, it's not an option...

I don't think I would want to go to dinner with people who would be ordering Fridays new appetizers though. That would be rough...

I have a great excuse not to eat the TGI Friday's fried mac and cheese.

GROSS!

:P

How the heck do you fry mac n' cheese?!!! Or better yet, why? LOL!!

I do however miss the mac n' cheese from Chat n' Chew. It's this place in NYC that I used to go with my friends all the time. It has total comfort food, and it was just out place we would go when we just wanted a laid back girls night. Actually it is where I told my best girlfriends I was engaged and asked them to be my bridesmaids! I have dreams about their mac n' cheese. :(

Kris, you can still have cheese fries, just make them yourself at home. If you're in the US, you can use Ore-Ida fast food fries, Kraft shredded cheddar cheese, Hormel black label bacon, chopped green onions, and Kraft brand ranch dressing on the side. You can also add chili, I know there are a few safe canned brands. It may not be as simple as going out and ordering it, but this way you can season it as you like and it will taste better.

Nikki - macaroni and cheese is known as a classic American comfort food....can be very good and creamy and then there's this horrible boxed stuff - ugh - with no real cheese on that one, just a powdered facsimile that emulsifies with water added......ewwww....but the REAL mac and cheese - yummy - - -

DEEP FRIED - - how sick is that? Can you imagine the fat grams and the calories.....people eat this without thinking about it at all and then......GASTRIC BYPASS :o

I'm STILL not glad I'm a Celiac though. :angry:

Still not glad I am a celiac either!!!! :(:( What I miss is being able to grab something to eat on the go, or maybe it's the donuts that don't sink, or the bread that tastes light and fluffy, might be the milky way candy bars I never craved before but do now, guess it could be the cookie dough ice cream, don't know different moods different foods :ph34r:

Ya I've seen those commercials for their new appetizers. That kind of stuff is exactly what is wrong with how people eat in this country! Macaroni and cheese isn't that great for you in the first place, then they go throw it in deep fryer.... :blink: why? Why don't we just go back to the kitchen and grab a cup of oil out of the deep fryer and drink it! Blah! I'm with penguin even if I could eat it, I wouldn't yuck....

Yea, imagine the people eating the fried green beans thinking they're killing two birds with one stone -- a veggie and a grain!! :lol:

They deepfry so much now ... I think my kids told me they were deep-frying Twinkies at the fair!

I'd just like a McGriddle, I miss our traditional Saturday morning breakfast, and in the casein dept. I think I'd do about anything (except get sick!) for a triple grande organic latte from Starbucks.

On the bright side, we're making new traditions -- hubby cooked brunch today! And I'm eating healthier and not pushing myself to the limit all the time. Sometimes it takes losing your health to realize that you really don't need to do it all.

Well, Elvis's favorite snack, according to longtime lore, was deep-fried peanut-butter sandwiches. :huh: Now, sickening as that initially sounds, I think I would have to try one of those given the chance!

haven't we all learned if you can eat it, someone somewhere can deep fry it. like milky ways, or snickers, or onions, or pig skin, etc.

Yuck!! Deep fried mac & cheese and green beans? :(

Although, we used to go to brunch at this place on the other side of town that had a dish called "Pasta Salvi" which was basically fettucini alfredo that was deep fried into these squares and then topped with some marinara sauce....it was heavenly. I ate it before I knew what it was (on a brunch buffet), but once I went there, I couldn't not eat it..LOL (at least until I went gluten-free ;) )

I tried to post to this thread yesterday, but my computer went bonkers... just had to share this tidbit:

Looking to emulate the success of Chicken McNuggets and fried mozzarella sticks, the group is hoping to inject some red meat into the American snack food diet with cheeseburger fries. The fries, which look like a squat version of standard French fries, are made of a meat-and-cheese compound that tastes ? as the name suggests ? like a cheeseburger.

Breaded, then deep-fried and served with ketchup or barbecue sauce, cheeseburger fries have found their way onto menus in several states including Nebraska, Minnesota and Texas since June. There is also a version being made available to public school cafeterias.

"The challenge is getting people to think of other ways to eat beef," said Betty Hogan, director of new product development for the [National Cattlemen's Beef Association].

Regular cheeseburgers aren't fatty enough!!???

Also there's somebody at the Texas State Fair that makes "Fried Coke"...

    • Popcorn, wine, as well as coffee are my favorite things.  Have you identified what is left to enjoy?  
    • I think you need to take a little time to learn about DH and celiac disease.  Celiac and DH are technically autoimmune disorders.  This is about DH: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/dermatitis-herpetiformis/ Learning about celiac disease (overview): https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/what-is-celiac-disease/ Testing for celiac disease via blood test: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/diagnosing-celiac-disease/screening/ I think the full panel is around $400 and the basic budget screening which is pretty darn good (TTG IgA) is under $100.   If you are paying for your medical care (even under insurance) you have the RIGHT to copies of everything.  So, when your doctor orders a lab test, ask for a copy of the order, so YOU know what he is ordering.  Then you can google to see if he/she is ordering the right things.  Get a copy of the results.  Get a copy of the costs/receipt if you are paying out of pocket.  Put your requests in writing.   I think some labs and doctors use the term for gluten allergy incorrectly.  1.  There is a wheat allergy (IgE) that is like a peanut allergy which can cause anaphylactic reactions (throat swelling, breathing issues, drop in blood pressure).  There are some blood tests that are about 50% accurate, along with skin scratch tests (also not super accurate.   2.  There is celiac disease (autoimmune that when exposed to gluten attacks the intestinal track, skin or brain) triggered by gluten (I gave you the blood tests: TTG, DGP EMA).  3) Non-celiac Gluten sensitivity or Intolerance which is like celiac in terms of symptoms, but no antibodies are generated and intestinal damage does not occur.  This diagnosis is reached when you have failed the first two as there are n tests for it.   Read through the DH section of this forum for symptoms and tips.   I hope this helps.   Finally, if you really suspect DH, you  can always go gluten free.  Keep in mind that you need to be strict and you need to adhere to the diet for at least six months to a year.  
    • I mean I might get a prescription refill, or a new vitamin pill for example, and take it for awhile, with absolutely no symptoms.  As we know, no symptoms does not mean no damage being done.   I will feel fine for weeks, but then I start feeling awful, like a bad flu coming on.  I never did get the intestinal symptoms others get.  This for me is the hardest part of having Celiac's, figuring out what did it.  Last month I ended up with pneumonia because I thought the achey symptoms I was having was from gluten, maybe from cross contamination even though my kitchen is off limits to gluten, maybe from some new prescription, maybe from some new tea I was trying, maybe from new vitamins (marked gluten free but not certified, those have gotten me before), so I stopped taking all of that but didn't feel better and kept getting worse.   It took me awhile to figure out I actually had a flu and by that time it went to my lungs and had to go to urgent care. 
    • If you get accidentally glutened, how do you keep doing it for several weeks? Or do you mean you get glutened once and several weeks later you react? 
    • I think, at least from my personal experience, that these tests are accurate if you were diagnosed including blood work that was positive.  All of the tests on my panel were positive by large numbers at diagnosis and over the next year, they went to very low normal for the ranges given.  My GI symptoms were gone by then and the lingering neuro ones took longer to heal but they did. I would assume in a highly symptomatic Celiac, that resolution of symptoms, normalization of the blood work and weight gain would indicate healing.  Whether I am 100% healed or not doesn't matter as my health is far better today than it was in my youth.  I have not developed any more AI diseases than the 4 I already have and I call that a big win. I think doctors do not take into account enough symptom resolution, weight gain for the skinny Celiac's or weight loss for those on the opposite end of the spectrum, as important markers for healing.  I am not even sure if it is totally necessary for a person to heal 100% as there is overlap in the small intestine and nutrients are absorbed not in just one place, making it a brilliant design, when you think of it.  If your health has improved dramatically on the gluten-free diet, along with the other things mentioned, then consider yourself healed well enough that you've regained your health back.  Repeat endoscopy's are really for those still having problems.
