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.

The ultimate! Happy Turkey Day!

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.

    • I had 23andme testing which showed I have genes DQ2.5 and DQ8. When I learned this I decided to stop eating gluten to PREVENT getting celiac, but didn't worry about cross-contamination. A year later I got sick, and eventually had an endoscopy which showed Marsh 1. My blood tests were negative, as one would expect for anyone eating gluten-free. My gastroenterologist told me I could either decide to live like a celiac, or do the full 12-week gluten challenge. I cleaned up my kitchen and started being very careful with eating away from home, and my symptoms went away.
    • The beginning of your story sounds very much like mine. I stopped eating gluten regularly when I adopted a mostly paleo diet years ago (bonus: my lifelong canker sores disappeared!). When I got 23andme testing done and learned I have both high-risk celiac genes, I stopped eating gluten altogether, thinking I couldn't trigger celiac if I didn't have gluten exposure. But, since I didn't have a celiac diagnosis or symptoms, I wasn't careful about cross-contamination.  Then I got sick. My symptoms were vague: bloating, food sitting like a rock in my stomach after eating, exercise intolerance, weight loss, chest tightness. I had a bunch of tests, tried omeprazole, and eventually had an endoscopy. Because I hadn't eaten gluten in a year, I didn't expect any results suggesting celiac, but sure enough, my biopsies came back as Marsh 1: inconclusive, but all the other reasons to cause this result had already been ruled out or were very unlikely. I then had bloodwork for celiac, which was negative, as expected for anyone on a gluten-free diet. At this point I was sent to a gastroenterologist, who said she could not definitively diagnose me with celiac, and that my options were either to assume I have celiac and live like a celiac, or to do the full 12-week gluten challenge and then repeat all the testing. i didn't want to take the risk of triggering another autoimmune disease by doing the gluten challenge, so I cleaned up my kitchen, replaced my cutting boards, cast iron pans, and anything plastic or silicone, and confined gluten to one corner of the counter. I started being the annoying person at restaurants and potlucks asking a thousand questions. And my symptoms went away. i still don't know whether I have celiac. I struggle with the restrictions it places on my life outside of my home (travel, social life). Periodically I wonder whether I shoukd just do the gluten challenge so I know. But I'm afraid of the possible risks. Your allergist did you a great disservice my telling you to go on a gluten-free diet without testing you for celiac. But that ship has sailed. At this point I would say your choices are the same as mine: either do a complete 12-week gluten challenge and then retest, or decide to live as if you had a firm celiac diagnosis. It can be a tough decision. Good luck and I hope you figure it out and get better very soon!  
    • We do not have gluten in my home other then the bread he  Uses to make school lunch sandwiches.  however I am divorced so he spends a good part of the week at his dad's as well where he can eat whatever he wants. My son is a terrible eater and has been very picky since he was 2 years old, he's now 6.  Up until recently he literally would only eat 5 things. He once vomited all over my kitchen after I insisted that he try watermelon.   In the last several months he's been expanding what it is that he will eat however. Unfortunately still no fruits or vegetables, I have to sneak those In via juice.  it is actually one of the reasons that  I am not in a hurry to get him tested. I have to return to Boston to see my specialist next summer and we are going to take my son with us then for testing.  so it buys me time to expand his food list just in case we have to take half of it away.  my brother's children however, because he's a farmer, have always eaten a lot of Whole foods.  his house is totally gluten free but his mother-in-law will take his daughter out for treats occasionally. She does not seem to suffer any adverse reactions. My nephew on the other hand was always constipated and bloated when he was on gluten.  The kids will literally just walk out into the garden and grab a cucumber and start eating it basically.  I'm not even exaggerating. I am envious that his kids will do that and I wish that I had  tried harder with my son when he was younger instead of always defaulting to what he would eat.  I know my nephew will verbalize a memory of not liking some of the changes that were made initially at their house, like with the gluten-free bread. But then he will say he likes it now. So I think kids do definitely adjust  their preferences.  unless of course you're my son, and then the neighbors are wondering whether or not they should call Child Protective Services because  There is an awful lot of screaming next door at dinner time.
