Fish/Shellfish Allergy / Re: canned mollusk and king crab legs allergy

I have the same problem with Alaskan king, Dungeness and Snow crab. I have been able to eat Maryland Blue crab all my life with no reaction at all. I have a violent gastric reaction if I eat the others. I have even burst a blood vessel in my eye from the forceful regurgitation I went through as my body tried to rid itself of every ounce of crab I ingested. I was told by an allergist that I am possibly allergice to whatever is used to process the crab. There may be  some sort of additive or perservative that is added to the dead crab for freshness. Since these products are not cooked live there may be some sort of protein that the dead crab emits. All I know is that I can still eat Maryland blue crab because it is cooked live. So I'm technically not allergice to crab.

Basil coconut chicken curry.  In the slow cooker, because sick and lazy.  Also, with pepper roulette, because the peppers were mostly out of stock and all jumbled at the store last night.  I am pretty sure I got jalapenos, but I could be wrong.

We eat so much rice when my brother is here to visit.

Hezz - those are good, I did something very similar for DS's first birthday party.  I used Hawaiian rolls (don't remember what brand) and used dried minced onion instead of the onion powder.

This is a so good a place to stick this as any.  DD has the HS swim team banquet on Thursday and we need to bring a main dish, but didn't want to do a pasta dish so I'm thinking I will do a large tray of these.

A take on feijoada (a Brazilian pork and bean stew) in the slow cooker.  My brother likes to try lots of different international stuff, and was interested.

Kind of the perfect recipe for someone who is both sick and can't sleep very well.  It needs to cook for a long time, so I cooked the bacon and browned all the pork early this morning when I got up, and now I can rest until it is time to remove the bones and shred the meat in like 10 hours.

So sad.  The article says production will be moved to a plant in America, so I presume the brand will still be around.  I hope their allergen information will stay the same.

Here's what's in my pot right now:


I cut the salt and threw in some tomatillos that I roasted in the oven.  I'll let y'all know how it comes out.  The house smells amazing.  If they are as good as they smell, I think I'll whip up some chili lime chicken to have with them during the week.  :thumbsup:
