Recipes & Cooking / Low Sodium ideas
« Last post by hedgehog on February 23, 2018, 01:12:04 PM »
I am having friends for dinner Sunday.  One has a history of CHF, so is supposed to be a low sodium diet (he doesn't follow his doctor's orders, but I refuse to serve him something that can kill him).  I have done a few low sodium dinners when he has been over, and want to do something different from the few I have already done.  So I am looking for inspiration.  Any good ideas?  There will be about 7 of us.
Main Discussion Board / Re: Make up

I picked up some make up. I feel like a preteen, lol

I decided to try Marcelle. I like how well they list everything on their website. So, I double checked the colours I wanted. Went to the store....and those colours just weren’t what jumped out at me. So..I bought different colours. They were on sale. Buying two, (1 eyeshadow and 1 blush) I got 3000 PC points too.

So, I have two different eyeshadow shades testing on my wrist. We’ll see how this goes.

I did check return policy. I’m willing to take the loss on the first one, but if I react I want to be able to return the unopened one. Sales rep said if I have a reaction bring back both with the receipt.

Fish/Shellfish Allergy / Re: canned mollusk and king crab legs allergy
« Last post by Dawn on February 20, 2018, 09:57:37 AM »
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.
