Sora, I love short ribs. The following are amongst my favourites:

Didn't that bacon article say something about bacon being good for sugar withdrawal?

So happy you are getting excited about Thai chicken! I have never, ever used curry powder in Thai dishes but instead make all my pastes from scratch with kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, chiles, etc. Curry powder to Thai chicken is as authentic as Spam is to bacon. Who needs curry powder? I LAUGH in the face of curry powder. :lol:

I know what you mean. Both are equally good, actually, and completely different from one another. Let us know what you decide! Short ribs should be its own food group, as bacon should be. :)

I am thinking #1. If I am risking a migraine then I might as well go for wine and chocolate!

Definitely not around here but when my husband takes me to the nearest city (three hours away) every two months on culinary escapes (as we call these trips) we find the lime leaves (fresh and frozen) at an Asian market. We stay in a tiny boutique hotel that is so charming. It only has about 12 rooms I think and each time you get a different one. They are all plush but very different from one another as the building is old (for our standards) and all higgledy piggledy. It is a treat, that is for sure. So, we book the sweet hotel, make dinner reservations at amazing restaurants and go food shopping. We hit the Asian market, the Latino shop, the huge Italian Centre, large indoor Farmer's Market, and gluten-free shop. We usually come home with an enormous haul but this is what we love to do. This is our entertainment. Anyway, we are going next weekend and I cannot wait. Though I'm in lots of pain we are going. As you know, I always lie down in the Jeep en route, but nothing will keep me away from those stores.

How do you like that for a short concise answer? :lol:

You are sure to love it. It will grow on you and then you will become addicted like me. Heck - once we had something similar only with blue cheese added! FANTASTIC. So, if cheese causes migraines as it used to me, go all out...

L2T and Irish (Irish knows) in one of my past lives ;) I lived in Thailand and it was an all day process to make our curries. Shopping for ingredients, sitting on the floor and pounding the spices and cooking it. Then eating it, the best part.

I can actually smell it right now. Must make curry soon.

This looks soooooooooooo darned good. Sometimes you've just got to have a great burger. And I know yours will be no ordinary burger.

I did not know that! Or if I did I had forgotten. :( Obviously you know your Thai curries like no other! Anyway, there is something so gratifying and therapeutic about making curries from scratch, isn't there? I made one last week. I don't know which I like better - red or green. I'd have to say both.

We always had red when there but now days I prefer green. We used to make red with those giant lovely Thai scampi and fresh pineapple chunks. So delicious, try it if you can get some scampi on your shopping trip.

MMMMMM! On our culinary trips we take along our coolers, of course, so will be on the lookout for scampi (which will not be the freshest as the nearest sea is about 2,500 miles away). But the combination with pineapple sounds wonderful.

Menu change -- the recipe I had called for lime zest -- my curiosity has spiked for some ingredients L2T has posted -- so a field trip to the asian market is now on my to do in the morning list.

Tonight will be enchiladas with cream/green sauce -- need to make an extra cassorole for a neighbor and this will do nicely.

zu-noodles and cilantro "pesto" for me

Sinful Choc Cake for men and neighbor.

Choc "Mousse" for me :)

I loved it ! Compared to some of my long answers on the board, it was just a telegraph. :D

I felt as if I were right there with you shopping. Sounds like fun.

and by the way, only you can use the term " higgledy piggledy" and get away with it.

:huh:( now, if I had said that, Adalaide and/or Karen would have been all over it like a cheap suit.)

Your expeditions are much like our trips to NYC..I like to hit .the wine shops in particular..then, pack up the car and haul it all back home.

Gotta keep our kitchens and pantries stocked!

and for added inspiration, this guy (whom I think resembles Johnny Depp a bit) would like

to apply for a position as a cabana boy....

eew, no! and let me tell you why:

our son goes out with us to shows (most times at bars) so last saturday night, we are out seeing a local band reunion and (YES they stock redbridge for me!!) some woman, younger than me, but not tooo much younger, is dancing beside me and making motions at harry (son, 26 - yeah, he's a hottie, lolz) who is standing in front of me close to the stage. i made a face at her and she hollers in my ear: don't you just want to put him in your pocket and save him for later? i said: NO! at that point harry turned around and tells her: that's my mom......

now. the guy who plays 'brady black' on "days" - he looks like he can wield a shovel while fixing a mai-tai...... ;) oh, hell, he doesn't hafta do anything. except get naked :D1047132-T800600.jpg

    • Anyone who has ever tried to get an official diagnosis for celiac disease has likely experienced one very unpleasant reality: Having to eat wheat for a couple of weeks to make sure the antibody tests are accurate. Currently celiac diagnosis requires gluten consumption. This can be hard for people who have already given up gluten. View the full article
    • Perhaps automated word pull as JMG suggested. It is irrelevant, but I must comment :  Oddly was entertaining for me today (on a rough day) to read this drivel that included celiac bashing . The celiac dis didn't even hurt, for it was from someone who could not formulate a coherent rational  thought  and shared that publicly. At first I wondered what substance the author was on, then I read further to discover more of this odd piece. The author is all over the place. The piece is also laced with a poorly excuted, back handed attempt to express judgement , anger, and veiled hate in a masked arrogant self subscribed Christian label.  Sure the author  makes a point of shaming the offenders who dropped off the offensive clothes. If the author were perhaps more coherent and a better writer the piece could be borderline offensive or effectively shameful. Alas it is neither.  I however felt sorry  not for the donation facility , the homeless , or the readers, but felt sorry for the author . The author clearly has a lot of self hate, anger, low self esteem, poorly hidden beneath a false facade of uppityness, narcissism, arrogance, while identifying /self labeling as a Christian.  I very rarely get to read a piece where I can play/exercise my brain as lay person couch psychologist . This piece lends itself to that perfectly. I went to the link and read the comments below the article from the real people who express how best to give to those in need, where, and how appropriately. So all was not lost. The right people commented kindly, respectfully, logically, in a helpful guiding way and without hate or shame. So regardless of how admin got this article here - most of us should skip this for the rest of us  bored enough or seeking an odd entertainment piece that does not relate to celiac , let's hope the author gets the help they need as a disgusting gluten-free sandwich has more to offer to society. 😉 Lol  
    • Hi Gemma, Welcome to the very select, exclusive, super secret club of NCGS (or I if you like), where you get all the fun of living the gluten free diet with the added scepticism of half the medical establishment and most of the general public   If you're interested in learning more, there's some good resources collected here:  Feel free to add or just post there if you like.  It's great that the diet is working for you. The emotional side is difficult no doubt. It does get easier, trust me, for you and those around you also. You get better at planning, at coping, at working around it etc. The availability of safe foods and wider knowledge continues to improve year on year.  I've barely been back to Germany, one of my favourite countries, since going gluten-free but take some comfort in the fact that its always harder in a different country with a language barrier as well, but even so there's hope: https://foursquare.com/top-places/berlin/best-places-glutenfree-food https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurants-g187323-zfz10992-Berlin.html You maybe need to accept there's a level of preplanning needed now that wasn't there before and if you do that you can still be spontaneous in other ways? Expect some setbacks, at times its ok to cry. Or, er happen to get something in your eye if you're a strapping bloke who should know better  Keep a good supply of nice safe snacks and treats at close hand. In your car/bag/pocket. Eat well before you go out. Have your freezer well stocked with nice safe food and your fridge too. Get to know what easy safe options are available, Are you in the UK? Join Coeliac.org and they'll send you the brilliant guide which will unlock so many safe, cheap foods, also available as an app. And post here, lots of good people with advice and support. Best of luck, Matt  
    • Hi All,  Recently (Nov 2017) I was diagnosed with NCGI by my consultant at hospital, this diagnosis has been after years of testing, colonoscopies, endoscopies and a 2 stone weight loss - it took the weight loss for me to finally be taken seriously by dr's. (I was tested for celiac around a year ago, all clear). I'm looking for advice to help me cope with this diagnosis, albeit I am thrilled that I potentially do not have anything life threatening (still undergoing tests, hosp visits etc.) but on the whole, I'm feeling hopeful that gluten may be the root cause to all my ailments and symptoms.  From diagnosis, I have cut out gluten completely, and apart from the odd slip up or cross contamination incident I have noticed a drastic improvement in my life quality and my time spent inside my bathroom walls has dramatically reduced. (TMI?)  The problem I am currently having is that I feel completely isolated from everyone in my life, I feel that me having to follow this strict diet is putting a burden on loved ones, especially when it comes to travel & eating out. (Was over in Berlin over the weekend, spent a good 5 hours over the weekend crying at being a burden to my BF restricting where we can eat, and also the fact that the majority of places we tried to dine, bar one or two, did not cater to the diet).  I thought I was coping with the diagnosis well, however the crying spell and fed up feeling with it proved I'm not. Does anyone have any good tips they followed and can recommend when they were newly diagnosed?    Xxx
    • Sorghum flour gives me massive cramps and diarrhea within 5 hours. I avoid it like the plague now.  FYI: Krusteaz gluten-free cornbread also has it as an ingredient, just found out the hard way.
