... I'm not allowed to cook anything whilst i'm sick.

I decided to make pancakes this morning, right? I have to go to the store tommorow and its one of the few things i had left.

I first tested to see if the eggs were still good (2 of the 3 weren't; luckily one was), mixed up the batter, and started to cook them.

The first two turned out well (though the first soaked up the excess oil), so i munched on them whilst the others were cooking. Then my stomach started to bug me (kinda like it does before my GERD acts up). So i decide to drink some milk whilst i was waiting. Yeah... bad idea.

The rest of the pancakes were ruined, my stomach feels like a ticking time bomb (gassy, bloaty mess), and i have class at 8am. TT_TT

I should have just fixed a plain pot of rice, but noooo i wanted to do something more than that.

Dairy didn't bother me at all yesterday -sigh-

I'm not sick, and I threw together a small 2 -buckwheat cake batch yesterday, and they stuck to the pan as if I had used caulk instead of oil. WTF. :ph34r: So for the second one I added extra oil to the pan, tested the temperature, spooned in the batter, and it still stuck to the pan really badly. :huh: Now I'm ticked, because I used the same buckwheat I had used earlier this week, which doesn't do this at all, and I make up a single third one, being really careful to not use as much yogurt in the batter, and lots of oil, and yet.... it also stuck to the pan. But not quite as much. I have concluded that my spouse is not allowed to clean my cast iron, <_< because I cannot figure out just what the **** he did to it. It should have been a sign when the eggs stuck first, but I thought they were just being eggs and adding more oil and lowering the temperature a little would fix it. :angry:

Sounds like you need to reseason it....

I don't let other people near my cast iron. If this helps, this is what I do and it is freakin awesome. http://sherylcanter.com/wordpress/2010/01/a-science-based-technique-for-seasoning-cast-iron/

It works like a charm and my cast iron is now just like having a brand new nonstick pan. I am very careful to remember not to cook anything acidic in my cast iron though, as much as it kills me. It is a two day project, your house will smell funky, not bad but funky, but it is totally worth it. When you are done the pan comes out with a coating as smooth as a baby's butt, and I simply treat mine like a nonstick pan to be sure not to damage it, which is probably a little extreme.

And for the record, I am also not allowed to cook when I am sick. I get all emotional every time something goes wrong in the kitchen when I'm sick and usually end up crying over stupid stuff that doesn't matter and then ruin my food. I'm just a basket case when I'm sick, I mostly lock myself in my bedroom and eat gluten free ramen.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! for this post. I have just "oven cleaned" a pan and was wondering how I was going to reseason it (one that hubs had worked his dubious magic on :blink: ) and this popped up on my screen at exactly the right time :)

I'm still kicking myself. Just after my birthday my MIL was going through some stuff and found an old Griswold cast iron dutch oven that had been her father's and offered it to me. I was like zomg, but contained myself and told her that that sort of thing belongs as a family heirloom and since we won't have any kids of our own (even though I have 2 who aren't her son's kids) that she should maybe offer it to her daughter first. Still kicking myself. I need to learn to shut my fat mouth, not jump for joy like a 2 year old, and just be cool.

    • No anti-sm(lupus)? Yes, anti dsDNA is for SLE(lupus). No ENA panel,anti-RNP, anti-SS-A, anti-SS-B, anti histone, scl-70, etc? I'd ask for a referral, if you feel that there is something going on. I think that would be a logical step because of the positive ANA and lack of investigation. 1:640 is definitely positive. 
    • My MCH is always high too. Have some other oddities but doc always say labs are great as well. I dont think they ever really bother with the MCH. I'm also in testing and showed negative on the same ones you did. My IGA is fine though. As far as the other tests, maybe your girls GI can order or you could try your primary. 
    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
