Edy's has Pumpkin Ice Cream (limited edition) which is really quite good! I served it to company with ginger snaps. I personally prefer ice cream in the winter with a good movie. B)

Did they make the cinnamon this year? So good with apple pie or just cooked apples!

Yum..must explore. Ooooh, wouldn't that be good on pumpkin pie??? :P(<licking lips.) I'm bringing a Smithfield Honey Ham, cornbread stuffing and a crustless pumpkin pie to my daughter's in-laws.

i ate too much :blink:

First, somehow, my microwave burnt the broccoli O.O so it had to be pitched (replaced with not totally cooked carrots)

Then i somehow oversalt my plate. So i toss the mac and cheese back into the pot stir it in (this is why i don't season whilst cooking most of the time) and put more on my plate. Was good, but every so often i got a bite of salty :blink:

can't win for loose can i?

Oh, for pete's sake, Addy! I told you a thousand times, it's not leftovers, it's "encores" :lol:

Cats do not care what we think..I have worried myself sick over Bella when she wanders....and she always comes home.

and finally....make pumpkin muffins, or bread or pie....shakes are not that great in winter...

They are okay in the summer, but in winter, nah.....they are fleeting and cold...It's like reading a sexy novel, with the window open in December.....goosebumps, shivering and no satisfaction.

I may have said leftovers just to be annoying. :P I also am obsessed with milkshakes, year round. I just can't help myself.

Hey, just have lots of champagne and you won't give a hoot about the cheesecake!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sadly, I do not partake. But the rules don't forbid me from cooking with it! You drink my share, I'll stick with pictures of cake I can post on my facebook to make everyone jealous. My family I'm sure is missing me and my baking from 2000 miles away. They have no idea how awesome being gluten free is, but I make sure to rub it in every time I cook up something yummy. :D

Let's see, you admit to being obsessed with ponies and milkshakes. Nothing wrong with either of those. Enjoy, toots! ;)

Dinner tonight:

Burgers and sweet potato fries.

Mom's coming for the week....she is tough to cook for. Think: Plain. Think: no spices, herbs, onions, etc. Think: 3 ingredient dinner.

(and BTW, that was SkiLisa's rule...like most younger sisters, she's keeping mum and letting me take the blame for it. I was pretty sure that was not my rule....But it's good to know I have not completely lost what's left of my mind) :wacko::D

To go with my husband's insane work schedule last week and this week, a busted car! Okay, maybe not busted but acting funny so I had to drive him to work today because he hates driving my Jeep. (Fine by me, I hate feeling trapped at home.) So anyway, instead of breaking out the waffle iron for turkey and waffles I think I'm just going to be 100% lazy tonight. Leftov...... Encores again. :P We'll do turkey and waffles tomorrow when I have more get up go.

Sweetie, we requested the change of topic title so no one felt "pressured" if they went slightly off topic talking about their day or their reason for choosing their dinner.

It does not mean (literally) that we expect to know what everyone is talking about during dinner. Some of our members eat alone, after all and some members just relax and do not talk much during dinner..

We meant the title to be interpreted as a " what's for dinner...and feel free to chat" thing.

we mean it like this....we post our dinner plans and we chat..we post our dinner plans and we chat (about everything from muu muus to an ideal gluten free compound)

Okay everyone? we just want it to be a safe place to talk about food. Good and healthy and nourishing food. :)

hope this makes sense.

Yes, IH! I just typed that in sort of tongue-in-cheek. At our house we do not exactly plan our conversations! :lol:

Anyway, more on the gluten-free compound location. What are your considerations? Mine are as follows:

- warm climate (such as Croatia)

- beautiful scenery (such as Croatia)

- wondrous food and ingredients (such as Croatia)

- surrounded by sea (for example, Croatia)

- amazing ancient art, culture, language and architecture (did I mention Croatia?)

- welcoming people - bet you can't guess where I'm thinking of!

Not too sure who "we" is/are, but WE had pork tenderloin, slathered with grain mustard with roasted potatoes and carrots. Great on a cold and windy day.

I like the idea of loosening up the topic. Good thought! And a thought for some future threads. :)

I used the word "We" to refer to the people who requested the change --and there were several of us---so people felt comfy talking about anything they like---- along with their dinner plans. Like muu muus or gluten free compounds.

We--are those who do not worry that much about staying on topic because sometimes a little chit chat is FUN. Hope this clarifies my use of the word we. :).

I agree.

Like Ba-con!! (I am not sure why bacon gets a bad rap from the medical community-- so many of us seem to think it is nourishing and healthy and so good.

    • Hi Galaxy, This does not mean that you don't have celiac.  You need a full panel done.  I only test positive on the DGP IgA test.  You still need tTG IgG, DGP IgA, DGP IgG and EMA.  Ask your Dr to order the rest?  Do keep eating gluten until all testing is complete and definitely keep advocating for yourself!  You deserve to feel good!! ((((((Hugs))))))
    • HI all. Blood, genetic and 3 biopsies diagnosed Celiac 2007. Spent 10 years on elimination diet of 9 foods to have stable colon and CRP. Never had bad Celiac numbers and my weight dropped 90 lbs from inflamation under control. Great cholesterol. Last two years have been adding foods. Last summer developed sharp pain in right flank, severe. After ultrasounds and MRI no diagnosis. Three back to back bladder infections and high CRP, Westergreen and Cholesterol later I went back to elimination diet for 30 days. Hard with food and starvation fear. Blood perfect again. Just wanted to share that obviously some food I added took me down hard. I am militant gluten-free and my Celiac blood work was normal throughout. Pain is gone. Anyone else experience this. Did you find out what it was and what test or Lab? Thanks to all who share here.
    • http://www.popsci.com/peppers-marijuana-gut Found this and found it interesting,  I will admit I love making edibles and it always seemed to help with my gut lol. "Your gut is something of an immunological mystery. Unlike the rest of the body, which tends to treat foreign invaders with a singular purpose—seek and destroy—the stomach cannot afford to be so indiscriminate. It exists to help fuel the body, and that means routinely welcoming foreign bodies in the form food. “If we injected ourselves with the food that we eat, we would have a massive immune response,” said Pramod Srivastava, an immunologist at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. When our gut’s immune system starts acting more like that of the rest of the body, the gut gets inflamed and starts attacking its own cells. The end result is illness. Diseases like celiac (an autoimmune reaction to gluten) and ulcerative colitis (one of two types of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, the other being Crohns) occur when the gut’s immune system starts treating food, and our own body, like an interloper. These conditions often leaves sufferers in tremendous pain and at an increased risk of both malnutrition and colon cancer. But if researchers could figure out how to calm down that immunological response, it might be possible to create a treatment. Srivastava’s recent study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggests we may be one step closer to finding a cure. He found that anandamide, a chemical that the body makes naturally and that is very similar to chemicals found in marijuana, helps calm down the immune system—at least in the guts of mice. If his studies hold up in humans, he says it could eventually lead to a cure for ulcerative colitis. To understand how Srivastava came to this conclusion it helps to look at his earlier work. Srivastava found that when he exposed immune cells to hot temperatures that the cells became highly activated—in other words, the immune cells went to work. Previous studies have shown that elevated body temperatures (better known as fevers) can help immune cells work better. But what Srivastava wanted to know was why. How exactly did the cells know that it was getting hot in there? “It was known that there were certain calcium cells that open up in the nerves when they are exposed to high temperature,” said Srivastava. “So, if the hand encounters a hot stove, those calcium cells open, calcium falls into the nerve and that nerve impulse goes to the brain, and we know that it is warm or hot.” It turns out that the same calcium channel is also how immune cells knew that their Petri dishes were getting warm. If physically hot temperatures activate the immune cells, Srivastava wondered, would capsaicin—the chemical that makes chili peppers feel hot—do the same? The answer was yes. Immune cells exposed to chili pepper in a Petri dish behaved just like cells exposed to higher temperatures. But our cells aren’t exposed to capsaicin directly when we bite into a spicy dish. So Srivastava fed the chemical to mice with type 1 Diabetes (which, like IBD, stems from autoimmune inflammation) to mimic our actual exposure. Since the Petri dish experiments showed that heat and capsaicin tended to make immune cells more active, the mice fed capsaicin should have developed more diabetes than the control group. But the opposite happened. Srivastava found that capsaicin didn’t ramp up the immune cells in their guts—it chilled them out. The mice fed capsaicin actually stopped being diabetic. It turns out something else happens when a mouse chows down on capsaicin. A special kind of immune cell, CX3CR1, also gets activated. And that immune cell tends to suppress immune responses in the gut. Since the body can’t really depend on a steady diet of chili peppers to keep us healthy, Srivastava went looking to see what else binds to the same calcium channel as capsaicin. He discovered that anandamide does. Anandamide was discovered in the 1980s when researchers were trying to make sense of why our body, especially the brain, has cannabinoid receptors. Cannabinoids, found in marijuana, are part of a class of chemicals that can alter neurotransmission in the brain. Nature didn't develop those sensors just so humans could get stoned: anandamide is similar to the cannabinoids found in marijuana, but our body actually produces it. “The person who discovered anandamide had an interest in Indian languages,” said Srivastava. “And in India, the word ‘ananda’ means bliss.” Nobody knows whether anandamide actually induces a sense of bliss, but mice fed anandamide experienced the same healing effects—stretching from the esophagus down through the stomach—as mice fed capsaicin. Srivastava also discovered that when he gave mice capsaicin, it seemed to stimulate their bodies' production of anandamide. In both cases, it was ultimately the anandamide that was healing the gut, which suggests that other cannabinoids like marijuana might have a similar effect. As with all studies, there are some limitations. Srivastava’s work was done in mice, not people. But it does fall in line with anecdotes from IBD sufferers who have found that marijuana relieves some of their symptoms, and other studies that have found that people who eat chili peppers live longer. Because anandamide is a cannabinoid, it’s pretty heavily regulated—you can’t just give it to humans. As a result, Srivastava hopes to work with public health authorities in Colorado—the land of medical (and recreational) marijuana—to see if legalization has led to any improvement in colitis patients who consume edibles. If it has, that could help Srivastava make the case for a study that repeats his experiment in human patients. In the meantime? Well, if you live in Colorado and want to try something new for your IBD, you're sure in luck. But most patients should probably hold off on trying to mimic the study results at home: many IBD patients report negative reactions to spicy foods, likely because they increase stomach acid and often contain nightshade plants. So guzzling hot sauce might not be a safe way to boost your body's anandamide production."
    • Even when glutened, I have YET to have a positive TTG (IgA or IgG).  Before you give up on a celiac diagnosis, get the GI to order the rest of the panel.  Make sure it is firmly ruled out.    This happened to my 20 year old niece.  celiac disease was completely ruled out (blood and endo), and colonoscopy clear.  Finally, a pill camera found Crohn's at the end of her small intestine out of reach of both scopes.  Note that she could still develop celiac disease one day.  Not saying you have Crohn's, but be persistent and continue to advocate for your health!       Keep eating gluten!  
    • Ok does anyone know if meaningful beauty is gluten free and what  the source of the tocopherol found in some of there products is from( hoping not wheat germ oil)  I'm new to this and I'm so confused when it comes to if it's safe to use facial and beauty products containing this ingredient or any gluten ingredients for that matter.  I figured I would be safe as long as I'm not accidentally ingesting it!  Thanks
