Do you have a pink cow yet? They apparently give strawberry milk, which is so much more interesting than the chocolate milk you get from the brown cows. :o

I hope it is true that calories consumed on Thanksgiving don't count. A busy afternoon baking saw us make brownies, French bread and pumpkin pie. Then we ate roast beef with Yorkshire pudding and are resting before tackling the pie.

It is Thanksgiving. Calories and sugar don't count today, right?

Bacon, fried eggs and waffles with real maple syrup in the morning, with lots of coffee.

Potato chips with sour cream and onion dip mid afternoon, while taking a break from baking.

Roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, gluten-free gravy and rice two hours ago.

Pumpkin pie with whipped cream coming up in minutes.

Boys and girls take warning, if you go near the lake

Keep your eyes wide open, and look for sneaky snake

Now maybe you wont see him, maybe you wont hear

But hell sneak up behind you, and drink all your root beer

And then sneaky snake goes dancin, wigglin and a-hissin

Sneaky snake goes dancin, gigglin and a-kissin

I dont like old sneaky snake; he laughs too much you see

When he goes wigglin through the grass, it tickles his underneath

Well, sneaky snake drinks root beer, and he just makes me sick

When he is not dancin, he looks just like a stick

Now, he doesnt have any arms or legs, you cannot see his ears

And while we are not lookin, hes stealin all of our beer

And then sneaky snake goes dancin, wigglin and a-hissin

Sneaky snake goes dancin, gigglin and a-kissin

I dont like old sneaky snake; he laughs too much you see

When he goes wigglin through the grass, it tickles his underneath

Would that be related to the brilliant irony of Tom T. Hall? Love it!

I did buy a box of grits, but have not tried them yet. Any info would be sorely appreciate.

Sleezenah

First, don't use Quaker.....CC issues.

Cook them longer than directions say.......they should be thick, not soupy like most restaurants serve them. IT'S NOT CREAM O' WHEAT, PEOPLE!!!!!

Oh, and add a couple slices of cheese near the end of cooking.......Yummmmmm!!!!!!! ^_^

Hi, Esamarie!!!! Jump right in.......the water's great! ;)

Hey, Bev........you gonna do any scuba diving????? I gots me own gear!..hint, hint

Sorry to say, I have not been fond of Thanksgiving, lately, as I have been stuck with all the cooking. (Remember how I hate cooking? :angry: )Me in-laws, for the past few years, have conveniently taken a vacation at this time, and the rest of the family scatters to the other side of their families.

Been missing Soozle, too. I don't think she liked Patteigh's and my diet tips :unsure: Hmmmm.........Souczie cutting sugar cold turkey...........scary thought :wacko: I don't think Fresno's ready for that :ph34r:

'Mornin', Peeeeeps!

Leeeesargh, I just LOVE yer li'l penguin. Every time you post, I watch him, mesmerized......adorable.. .. ....

Must put up the heeelarryus pic that DH took yesterday just before he went for a run on the trails a short car ride from our place. The Ripper was going with him on his bike, so Will opened his car trunk and left it open whilst he went to get Jack's bike to throw in. The dogs were out by the car, waiting for the running adventure to begin.

When Will came out of the garage, there was Charles, sitting in the trunk. Waiting.

:lol:

Yep, I see them, too! POTATO sheeps, ONION deeps, PUMPKIN peyes, (assumed OLIVESES)! Sounds like a Phoin Thankgiving Day, to me!

Love the mental pic. of Charles waiting oh, so patiently in the trunk!!! How cute!!!

I'm not so crazy about T'day anymore either. When my fam. was all younger we'd all get together at Mom and Dad's. When you count all of us, siblings, our chilluns, you could count on about 30 of us. Got to the point where Mom just could not deal with it all anymore....so everybody splintered into their own little family groups. Not a lot of phun with just Telehubby and me. Last year we invited a couple for dinner that we really didn't know, and it was all cut short because of work schedules. Some of us work on all of the holidays.....so they all seem to be the same as any other day. Guess I'm old enough it doesn't matter so much anymore.

OK, I'm done whiiiiniing in selph pittay!

Gorgeous day outside!!! Makes for a pretty good day inside, too! :D

Yep. . ..he is a magnificent runner. Elsie runs quite awkwardly, but much better than when we got her. She spent so much time in a TOO-SMALL CRATE in which she could NOT lie down properly, or stand fully, that her skeleton and posture have been forever affected.

:angry::angry::angry::angry::angry::angry::angry:

Catching up on a few pages, y'all are making me hungry! I have to wait another month for Thanksgiving and we're going to my inlaws--I'm wondering if maybe they'll let me do the cooking......I'll stop there ;)

PB is good with everything as is bacon with anything. 2 of my favorite foods-The bacon is a little difficult since I went vegetarian <_<

Nothing too psillie for me here. We are going to the beach this weekend with 13 of my craziest family members, there should be plenty of psilly there fo-sho!

I thought I read that Soozle was sick as well. Nik-olette, hope you're feeling better too!!

Poor little Elsie! Who could do that to a dog?

I used to love Thanxgivin, but not so much lately. We go to my MIL at 12:00, and then my daughter's at 5:00. Which means I'll have to make a gluten-free turkey dinner a couple of days before to take to both places and I'll be so sick of all that I'll barph! Oh, well, I guess it's the peeps, not the food.

Maybe I'll take potatoe chips, onion dip, and a two-olive martini!

Am at a lost. Am way too Patrishion for my "hood", but don't now how to be properly Hillbilly. How bout a beat up old carseat on my front porch? Or, is that TOO obvious? Come on, help me out here.

Where IS Soozle?

Not good enough. You need an old ratty sofa on yer front porch.......and maybe an old coonhound. And in the front yard you need an old rusted out Ford pickup truck....no tires......sittin on cinder blocks.

Patteigh!!!! Ya still got that port-a-potty???? :P

    • I am going to Mass General in Boston to rule out celiac. I picked it because one of the docs is a lead researcher and it is a 5.5 hour drive. Plus they did a virtual visit with me which was great.  Admittedly, my first actual visit was short and it felt like a long haul for a quick 20 minutes. I spent about $250 on hotel, gas, food and tolls. I stayed right outside of Boston and booked the MGH rate. I am looking at other options if I go again.  I was gluten free at the time so there was not a lot to do at the appointment. My insurance also would not pick up $125 of the visit for some reason.  I cannot give you an overall about time, money etc. as I am still waiting to hear if we are doing another endoscopy. I am hoping they rule it in or out as it has been unofficially diagnosed by two local docs and it is starting to get very frustrating for me as others say it is not celiac and I still feel badly. I do really like the nurse who calls me. She is very receptive.  I can keep you posted! I also looked at Columbia as I live in NY but they did not accept my insurance and Boston is actually just as easy of a drive for me. 
    • We did some upgrade work today, please report any issues.
    • Hi Kathleen, There is a standard called the Marsh Scale that is used to rate the various levels of damage to the gut.  While the lighter damage levels might not show up to the naked eye, the worst damage levels are obviously visible.  The worst levels result in what the call "scalloping" referring to the appearance of the gut lining. Isn't this great, you are learning new stuff already! Welcome to the forum Kathleen!
    • Do not worry.  Didn't you say you talked to a nurse?  She might not even know the procedure for obtaining biopsies for celiac disease.  She might just be thinking endoscopy.  She might even be new to the practice.  Who knows?  Print off the U of Chicago's info and call or email tomorrow with your questions.  If you do not get an answer, then talk to the GI when you see him on Friday. But you need the biopsies.  Villi damage is too small to see!  There are some other signs....but biopsies are key.  
    • I take Jarrow Probiotics and eat coconut yogurt daily. For vitamins I use Liquid health, they have them in liquid form you just measure into a glass of tea or juice and drink it.....BIG deal for me since I already take 4-9pills with each meal.
