    Glutened-Little Vent

    Glad that you're feeling a little better. I hate it when the wife gets fouled up. I feel sorry for her and upset that there is nothing I can do for her.
  2. Go with the Boars Head brand.
  3. It's going to be a big help with her being used to you already having dietary restrictions. The big thing that she is going to have to get used to is what utensils she uses while preparing foods. That seems to be one of my biggest downfalls, grabbing the wrong dang spoon .
  4. Yup, it's true. And be sure to label the items gluten-free to avoid cross contamination in the future.
  5. Co-existing isn't that hard but can be frustrating. You will make mistakes and you'll get mad at yourself, I know, I do it all the time. For the most part, the gluten-free foods don't taste that much different or any at all. I'm with ya on the bread. We keep my bread and hers but trust me, they are no where near each other. We have seperate cooking utensils and they are kept that way. I have pans that I use for cooking things for myself and we have the things for cooking gluten-free. There is no reason you can't prepare gluten foods for yourself..........JUST BE SURE TO CLEAN UP.

    Traveling For The Holidays.

    It's a good thing that I pack light. I put my foot down on trying to get the stove in the trunk.

    Shared Kitchen "review And Renew"

    Y'all should have my wife in your kitchens. She don't let anybody forget. Love you honey .
  10. The way foods get thrown around at Mc Ds, I can see a serious CC problem there . We tried Red Robin a couple of weeks ago and that was a big jump and I think that they'd be a little better trained or informed than the high school freshman a Mc Ds.
  11. The wifey still uses her mixer and hasn't had a problem. We did give up the bread maker but mainly because it was non-stick and we weren't willing to risk it.

    Red Robin... Yuuummmmm!

    The hostess seemed a bit bewildered on the gluten free subject but I will say that our server seemed to be on top of the subject. I am so happy that the wifey has found another place that she's comfy with.

    Don't eat the dog food.
  14. Somebody picked a whole mess of jalapenos so it looks like it's time to make some jam and pickle some.

    Question On Caffeine And Alcohol

    A 4 pack is a great idea cuz you ain't gettin a $13.50 6 pack.
  16. You're not a masochist. I had my tonsils out and went home and had pork chops for dinner. Bring the good stuff. She gets to chase those poor roosters around to get their....................
  17. I don't know? $30 for cardboard? Ever try to eat that crap, tastes nasty . I think we'll just stick with cooking fresh foods. Protiens, rice and vegies go great together. Just kidding. If it's not available locally, get it where you can. Ooops, that didn't sound right.
  18. Thanks again, Ken. He says that he's cutting the tops off now and not having any problems.
  19. Gonna take more than that to get me upset but I don't want/need anyone giving any newbies or oldies any bad advice that could set them back and make them miserable.
  20. I think with friends like that, who needs any damn enemies. And anyone that would suggest that is an idiot and has no idea what this is all about.
  21. At the risk of being warned or even banned, I'm going to say that this has to be about one of the dumbest things that I've heard. Just because it's the wheat husk, it doesn't have any gluten?! That's like saying an orange rind doesn't have any vitamin C. All I can say is that if it works for you, go for it but I wouldn't be recommending it to a Celiac sufferer.
  22. Thanks Ken. He says that they were full when they came out but the brine level shrunk over night. He also claims that the seals were good. I suggested that he poke the tops to let air escape.
  23. I had someone question about okra (nasty stuff). He pickled some and says that as the jars cooled, the brine reduced. Claims it was 2" low over night. I suggesred repacking and processing using more brine. He was curious if this was common and how to avoid it. Any ideas?

    Gluten-Free Beer

    Anheuser-Busch makes a sorghom beer called Redbridge that my wife didn't think was to bad. Then she tried the Bards and likes that even better. Click on the Bards ad on this forum and see if they sell any locally. We've been working with a local store to stock it for her.
  25. Mr Bojangles has lost his baggy pants.
