Didn't you tell me your daughter brought home BACON flavored candy canes? :lol:

Dinner tonight is stuffed peppers, but I feel compelled to drape bacon over the top for some reason........

Yes she did and Milo stole them. Bad kitty. <_<

It's breakfast sausage and eggs for dinner. Next best thing to bacon.

Sorry, sweets :( ((hugs))

DH is awesome for taking care of your dinner!!

KUDOS for still retaining your sense of humor while glutened. Not easy, is it? :(

And celiac--it ain't for sissies.

Hope you feel well soon---and enjoy your next serving of bacon.

My men are having breakfast for dinner - waffles, eggs and hmmm...what is that lovely smell wafting from my kitchen???

For me - my first attempt at apple breadlike substance without using eggs -- and for the first time ever in all my years of cooking I used too much salt :huh: -- maybe the eggs absorbed any previous oversalting :P -- along with encore chicken and broccoli soup.

I'm all for two silly compounds -- ok who is heat intolerant or cold intolerant -- thinking I may get left alone with the cabana boy to shovel snow when hubby heads out to catch his beloved fishies in southern waters B)

Hope you are feeling better very soon MW - that gluten stuff is a PITA ;)

I decided at the store last night to try KA waffle mix instead of buying more Bisquick. I was thrilled with how good my waffles turned out. My husband will not put gravy on waffles, I suppose it is because he grew up in CA and not back east where chicken and waffles is a "thing." What a sad and empty childhood he must have had, poor thing. :( My turkey and waffles were delicious and he had waffles and bacon.

OMG!!! I think that's too much striped hog even for me. After all the talk about bacon this morning, I decided not to have a bacon, lettuce and avocado sammie for lunch - I'd already overdone my bacon quota for the day, and now look what you've done!

:lol::lol::lol:

Happy Thanksgiving to all Psillies (with or without bacon)

How do people live without chicken and waffles?! (or turkey and waffles as a after turkey substitute) I can't be the only person who grew up eating this at least once a month and usually more often.

All native Californians in this house - turkey enchiladas and turkey tacos are post Thanksgiving day musts. Once in awhile a turkey pot pie slips into the mix in between Mexican fare - oh and turkey sandwiches with cranberry :)

Turkey and waffles will likely be called up to the permanent Turkey Day roster after this year!

Addy, where exactly "back east" is chicken and waffles a "thing".?

I grew up In Boston and I never ate that once.

Do you mean someplace a bit farther south, southeast perhaps? :)

I am sure it is tasty??!!!.

That is the ultimate. Actually, this is a very smart way to roast a turkey - it won't taste bacon-y but the bacon just provides fat for basting. I have done this but not in such a fancy pattern. :P Great way to do meatloaf and dry things such as quail, Cornish game hens...

What is this gravy sacrilege? I missed this first time around. GRAVY!!??? OMG, get me outta here.

I went to brunch with a friend, the same friend who said she liked eating with me because I would eat anything, and I let her choose the place.

I sat there looking at the menu for 5 minutes, 10 minutes,...12 -- and then I said to her, "Lee, can we go eat someplace else? I cannot eat here!" (Pre gluten-free days natch.) And she says, what's wrong?? and I says, everything's got gravy on it!!!! :lol: :lol: And no, she wasn't southern, but she was from Arizona.

Different strokes....

I grew up in Northeastern PA. I've heard the chicken and waffles is more of a southern thing maybe but we were close enough to the Mason-Dixon line to adopt a few of their traditions without giving up being yanks. Mostly though I grew up with the Pennsylvania Dutch cooking traditions which involves baking baking and more baking of poison.

The chicken and waffle thing is definitely southeast, but none for me EVER. It just looks so not paired well together, but keep in mind the joke in my house is I'm not southern (born and raised in the south) and sometimes I'm not American. All because I don't eat southern foods (grits, sweet tea, etc) and I didn't watch movies or a lot of tv growing up. :)

Supper tonight was hash browns with chili, cheese and jalape&ntilde;o on top. Will be awhile before have this again, post meal blood sugar was 155 :(. I knew I shouldn't have checked it.

    • Certainly seems likely if those levels dropped due to gluten removal. I am just curious, when you had the scope eventually, were you eating it?  Are you feeling any better? 
    • 1. Double checked your antibodies? 2. Those of us with celiac have issues with some nutrients for various reasons, being either we can not absorb enough of them from our foods due to damage to intestines or the new gluten-free foods you changed to are non fortified and do not contain the nutrients you which is especially true if you eat a bunch of processed gluten-free foods. A combination of both of these can lead to extreme fatigues. I found taking Magnesium, and B-Vtitamin supplementation helps (Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with Neurological support same company, Liquid version is easy to absorb and no pills). Look into KAL Nutritional Yeast also, I use it to make condiment cheese sauces, toppings, blend it with egg whites. it contains many nutrients we are lacking and is a great supplement/food to have in your diet. 3, Look into what cycling lady mentioned, this could also be a issues. 4. Had your blood sugar checked?
    • I'm going to play Captain NCGS to Posterboy's Professor Pellagra (No doubt the Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes will soon be bidding for our services) and say that regardless of the blood test results, this: is exhibit one. You have a reaction to the gluten free diet. That doesn't necessarily eliminate fodmaps or issues with other components of wheat, but it's at least suggestive and the main reason I think you need to get back on it and give it a longer go. In fact, as I hinted at in the previous post, I'd be doing my 'goodbye gluten' top 10 croissant and bagel bucket list because I don't think you should go back to it simply based on exhibit one. It's messing with you in a way that it shouldn't. I had sciatic back pain for 20 years which I attributed to a disk injury. It was left sided and when bad travelled down my left leg following the sciatic nerve. I had all the scans, treatments, exercises etc. Nothing really worked and it was at times intensely debilitating.  Drum roll... Gluten free diet cured it. My new theory is that gluten related inflammation was localised in that area and it caused the pressure on the nerve. Now why there and not elsewhere? No idea, but it could be inflammation causing your pain? I went for several diabetes tests because I would suddenly become very weak, hungry and I would feel unwell. Weak, hot, light headed, on the verge of passing out. The tests were normal but I knew that I seemingly had a blood sugar issue. Another win for the gluten-free diet.  It sorted the tremors in my hand (begone thoughts of early onset parkinsons or ms) and the nerve twitching under my eye and etc etc. well you get the point. I've said above I sometimes wonder if I'm undiagnosed celiac but there are certain aspects of NCGS which seem to fit me and maybe you too. My digestion stomach etc is much better now but I wouldn't have said before all this that it was particularly bad. I read this http://www.bmj.com/content/345/bmj.e7982 and I have a similar experience that neuro symptoms were more apparent than digestive in the 'classic celiac' model. (more of that sort of thing here though I already sent you the Umberto Volta I think. I would be fascinated if you, your brother and myself were to do the gluten challenge and then take this test: http://www.medicaldaily.com/non-celiac-gluten-insensitivity-blood-test-392850 what the result would be. But you know what, unless the scientists put out a call for more volunteers I won't be doing it. In the search for answers, validation, certainty, it's easy to forget the real goal, feeling better. After several years on the gluten-free diet I feel better. I'm no longer thinking that the next bout of chest pain will be my last minutes on earth. I no longer worry about going blind because half my vision has gone grey, I'm not trembling, I don't have cardiac arrythmia, I don't have rheumatic pain, I don't have crippling back ache like I'm 40 years older, I don't get  faint, dizzy and heart pounding when I stand up,  I don't have brain fog, anxiety, depression (well sometimes!), painful stomach cramps, weird white tongue, rashes on my torso, horrible greasy skin on face, horrible dry peeling scalp, sores on my scalp and neck, white spots on my fingernails, I'm not sweating so much I have to douse myself in antiperspirant, I don't have all this and more and I don't have a letter from a doctor saying I have celiac and I don't give a **** about it. I don't have gluten and as the Godfather of soul would say...  I feel good  Feel good IT. You've done as much as anyone could to find an answer. Maybe there's one around the corner or maybe there'll be one in 5 or 10 years when the likes of Marios Hadjivassiliou, Umberto Volta or Alessio Fassano have completed their research. Or maybe not or never. It's in the 'nice to have' than the essential's for me now. Do the diet, note your symptoms, stay connected with your doctor so that if there is anything that sticks around suggestive of other things you're on top of it, but feel good and focus on that and enjoying life.  All the best!    
    • I think he's right. It's a hard burden at times at any age but there will be particular challenges for your daughter as kids don't want to stick out or have to be continually monitoring things like their food. Check out this advert from a UK retailer. Beware it's so sugary it could probably give a diabetic person a sugar crash! Maybe you could do similar? Just get or make a selection of kid friendly foods but don't say anything about it to your daughter, just everyone go in and start filling their plates.  If she asks you if you've done anything for her you just tell her that she can eat everything on the table. At least this would show both that choice is still available to her and that because everyone is eating the same thing that she won't feel like she's being singled out?
