Recipes & Cooking / Re: What's for Dinner?
« Last post by SilverLining on Today at 06:57:53 PM »
Since Iím alone for dinner, I decided to make Hawaiian Pizza. Did up a dough, and I guess due to the stormy weather it REALLY raised. I ended up with three pizza (the size of a medium cookie sheet). I considered making one with meat for DS and one with veggie for his friend because they will be getting here later. But that was a lot of work and I just didnít want to.

Since Iíll have some granddaughters here tomorrow it will be snack for them.

Oh, that opens up many questions, doesn't it... I can think of several: have they been using shortened expiry dates on purpose?  Were the expiration dates shortened by mistake (I doubt it)?  Are they doing this just to make people feel more comfortable about carrying expired medications?  This seems far too coincidental for it to be a safety review of sorts... Why the sudden change?  Is the shortage making them lower their standards of what is considered okay?  They offer little answers, other than studies prove viability... well, yes, but why aren't all autoinjectors affected by the change?  And, will this change continue into the future?

It seems fishy to me. 

And yet, we still only have one auto injector brand to choose from here in Canada, or should I say, used to be available... Most island pharmacies are out, and many on the mainland are too.  They're handing out two EpiPen Jr. devices to adults who absolutely need a new prescription, providing them with one full dose, that's it. 

Mine don't expire until next year, but I'm starting to worry about these shortages and what they could mean for those of us with no alternative other than phials and syringes -- and that isn't a safe option for many reasons.

Traveling & Restaurants / Celebrity Cruise Line
« Last post by spacecanada on Today at 04:00:03 PM »
Soooo.... I was given notice today that I might be going on a cruise on Friday.  Yes, three days from now.  I won't know for sure until tomorrow or Thursday.  (Don't even talk to me about stress; I'm in full panic mode.)  I've called ahead and they seem to have all the right answers regarding food allergies and medical centre capabilities and equipment. (Unless you're a child - I wouldn't advise taking a child with food allergies on Celebrity cruises - their youth counsellors are not first aid or Epi trained.)

Has anyone here ever sailed Celebrity with food allergies?  I'm looking for first-hand experiences if there are any.

Welcome MamaDee - I'm also in a suburb of Atlanta (Marietta) and have a daughter with allergies to sunflower (as well as soy and tree nuts) plus two kids with other allergies.  The irony is not lost on me that she is allergic to the alternative product so many use for peanut and tree nut allergies or that many of the allergy safe alternatives such as Enjoy Life are unsafe for her.

I highly recommend Seidu or Rezvani who seem to be the two allergists in our area that understand food allergies.

Last night we had spinach enchiladas. When DH makes enchiladas, he makes his own salsa verse. I use bottled. DH cooked, so we had a really yummy salsa verde on the enchiladas. 2.5 WW points each!

And we used the Kuners black beans (not refried) with jalapeŮos. OMG they are simply amazing.

Anyone notice any correlation between acne and allergies? I do not mean the occasional blemish but chronic deep acne flare-ups.

How about any correlation between acne and reflux/heartburn?

Heartburn is food related, not stress related
