In fact, I had homemade red curry with pork last night that turned out reasonably well. And you can make it as hot or as mild as you want. Just an alternative for a tasty meal at home. More and more, stores are carrying dairy- and gluten-free foods. Even HERE...though I suspect it's due to the large number of cancer patients/survivors around here, along with the high incidence of Autism Spectrum and FASD kids.

I had a friend from Tailand when I was in grad school out in Boulder, Co. and while studying for the pre-dissertation exams we would sometimes eat at his place. I like hot food; it focuses the mind. But that stuff was beyond all reason. Talk about peeling the shingles off the roof!! And laying on your side propped on a pillow while you eat takes some getting used to even when you aren't in excruciating pain from those demonic little peppers. Those things burn going in, coming out, and every inch of the way in between.

And I don't know if this has been brought up at all, but there are a couple companies making enzymes you can take to help digest small amounts of gluten. You couldn't take one and eat a normal sandwich, or anything like that, but they'll help if you accidentally eat a little bit of something at a restaurant.

Rico, I can't get rid of my pet tapeworm! It seems to have the metabolism of a humming bird.

Mr. Lummox, I've got Tabasco peppers and sweet bannana peppers. I didn't plant bell peppers this year, for some reason that I can't remember right now. The first kind of rice bread I tried, and some of the gluten free cereals, really suck, but most of what available and safe is pretty good.

The last few days I have been gaining some stamina. For the last couple of months I"ve been just out of it. Going to the barn to feed would give me the head spins and I'd be seeing spots for hours. The spots were kind of cool, but I can do without the spinning. Even just a bit of energy coming back is worth the strange diet.

It mentions a 4 ingredient peanut butter cookie, here's the recipe:

1 cup peanut butter (JIF or Skippy work best, and you can use crunchy if you want bits of peanut in your cookies)
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
*Optional* a couple handfuls of chocolate chips

Mix them together and scoop the batter on to a cookie sheet in typical cookie sizes. Bake them at 350 degrees for 12 minutes, take them out of the oven and let them cool on the sheet for a while (they fall apart if you take them off warm). They are pretty good.

As far as restaurants go, it doesn't hurt to call early in the day and ask if you can talk to the cook. A lot of the larger restaurant chains have information on their websites, and some even have menus that are specifically gluten free or at least mention common allergens.

Bard's Tale is the beer my dad drinks.

I know it'll be hard after all these years, but you may have to drop the tapeworm off at the shelter.
