Beef stew with dumplings.

Wow, I have missed so much being away from here for a few days. Communes, ER's and breasts!

Re: communes, can I come? I'll bring my sewing machine and make MuuMuu's.

Sora, you MUST come! It would not be the same without you. We'll just have to come up with some interesting "chores" for you, too! Actually, you love cooking also - you can cook with those of us who love to do it.

Sora, I can't stand it! That is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO funny! :lol: :lol: :lol: How did you know where to look for me? Wait til I tell my husband you found me. I am as white as that; in fact, I blend in with the snow quite well. Snow can be great camouflage. And I do have glasses and brown hair. That bikini only comes out in winter. You should see what I wear when it's actually hot out! OK, you got me. Call me Slackinator. Just watching the cabana boys I mean my husband shoveling the driveway.

I am nearly peeing my pants, too.

All of those empty lounge chairs are for commune members only for watching the cabana boys. (See L2T's big smile?)

Looks like she doesn't need a MuuMuu either so maybe I can help with the cooking.

Yes! The chairs are waiting to be filled. Just wondering when you all are coming!

If you look closely at the picture you'll see that the biggest and saggiest parts of my thighs are very well camouflaged by the snow. Same with my tummy. Plus Sora sure knows how to photoshop!

As you can tell, I'm not GottaSki responding here ( :lol: ) but what the heck...try this jerky recipe. Dead easy and even more deadly tasting.

http://www.food.com/...eef-jerky-42272

Mine's still in the dehydrator, but I can tell you that L2T's recipe will taste far superior -- there wasn't much I could marinate mine in -- so I'm hopeful it is edible...will post instructions after I try and get verified by one of the male jerky experts in my midst.

And yes I was walking in the rain -- I love weather -- guess it's cuz we rarely have it here!

Crockpot ended up with Chili Verde in it -- tacos for dinner -- me a bit of pork pulled out before the chili went in -- guess that means I'm having pulled pork ;)

Mmmm! How do you make the honey butter chicken? Sounds good.

I'm making oven "fried" chicken tenders and homemade Mac and cheese.

It was pretty tasty, I actually let my 6 year old decide how to make the honey butter and she made me proud:)

We used chicken thighs and partially cooked them. Meanwhile my daughter took half a stick of butter, melted it and stirred in approximately a tsp of honey, brushed it onto the chicken and finished cooking it. When it was done the skin was crispy and slightly carmelized.

yum....that sounds De-lish, Alex! Another example of a daughter showing her mom "she knows her stuff" :)

and just like Bac-on!!...you cannot go wrong with butter (IMHO)

and I am a huge fan of Irish Kerrygold.

I made carrot puree and had it with steak.

Actually an edible form of carrots, because I hate the taste but have to eat 'em anyways.

Had a big lunch out, so homemade chicken noodle soup. Butterscotch pie for dessert :)

Butterscotch pie.....oh wow!!....(drooling...) I LOVE butterscotch.

We are having "encores".. of the bison stuffed peppers tonight. But getting no complaints, so that's good. :D

We also had a big lunch--something called a "Breakfast Scramble"

It involves eggs, cheese, sauteed peppers, onions, mushrooms, home fries, and......wait for it........bacon!

My friend who owns the gluten-free cafe created it...and I replicate it (as best I can) and the hubs...loves it.

I think it is just a way to use anything in the fridge. I made it into a frittata,

    • Mine didn't count past 100 - so I was over 100.  When the numbers are that high, it means you have Celiac.  Slightly elevated numbers can sometimes be caused by other things.  Welcome to the club!
    • I recently took a blood test and went over the results with my GI doctor who will be performing and endoscopy and colonoscopy on me soon. I can't remember exactly what she said, but I believe she was talking about my IGA-TTG levels. She said the normal range was under 10 but mine was 639. I think she was talking about IGA-TTG but I'm not sure. For people who have done this test what were your high levels?  Thanks! Female, 16
    • I can not help you with the Candida  issues (except to advise reducing sugar from your diet and talk to your doctor about antifungals).  I can tell you that my folate and B vitamin levels were off the chart.  No, I did not have cancer, which is what you will find if you google).  Yes, I have autoimmune  issues and maybe I have the MRTHR gene (never tested....why bother?).  Instead, I gave up all supplements even those found in processed foods.   My lab reports are all normal after a year.    I am not deficient in anything at this time.   Vitamins and supplements are a good thing, but they are not for everyone.  There is no “one-size-fits all”.   Consider changing your diet to include just whole, unprocessed foods like the ones your Great-Grandparents ate.  Eat a varied diet full of vegetables, fruit, nusts, seeds, meats, fish and grains.  See if things improve.  Work in the Candida diet into this Whole Foods diet, but find out why you think you have a Candida issue.  This should be diagnosed by a medical doctor.  Systemic Candida is rare and is usually found in people with immune-related illnesses.   If you suspect celiac disease, get tested.  It is a simple blood test.  Learn more: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/        
    • It could be celiac disease related or not.  The fact is her antibodies are still elevated.  They have come down dramatically (great job!) and she has had some  intestinal healing, but she is not completely healed.  She probably needs more time.  She is under a lot of stress which is known to affect menstrual cycles even excluding celiac disease.   She has been malnourished (think concentration camps...extreme, but you get it)  and still is based on her eating habits you described.    She  is a student who is away from home and has to deal with celiac disease every single moment on her own.    Every bite of food must be checked.  That can be exhausting!  It will get better, but it takes time.  It can take a long time to heal.   The fact that it occurred when she stopped gluten is probably a coincidence.  It probably added even more stress.  Can you imagine a life-long dietary change?  Ever dieted?  How long did the diet last?   Give it more time for her antibodies to come down.  She is still being attacked. They are not in the normal range.    Most take a year or longer to heal.  Ask anyone here.  Read through forum comments.   How about baking her some chocolate chip gluten-free cookies and shipping them to her?  Or mail a fruit basket.  You both will feel a bit better.   Hugs!!!!
    • Done and wish you luck. I moved to a full on keto/paleo diet after also. This might be why it does not come back, once you get rid of it probiotics help keep it in check as they eat the yeast.
