I love lemon pepper seasoning for fish, in my tuna , on pork chops etc I make my own sort of herbs de Provence with my window box herbs and some dried lavendar that I have growing out back. I just hang clippings upside down till dried, pulse them, stems and all in a food processor and use them on literally everything. Couldn't live without dried dill in my tuna. And I always add lots of dried sage, some fresh ground black pepper and some ground red pepper to my store bought turkey breakfast sausage before pattying it up to freeze it.View Thread
OOOOOOH I KNOW this one! My ex father in law used to get gout so bad that my then husband had to go live with his parents when his dad got a flareup in order to carry him in and out of the bed room, bathroom etc. He got it very bad and was put on some meds that helped a little, then was told to eat differently. Foods that are high in acids, tomatoes, peppers, oranges, orange juice..... all very likely to bring on an attack Pickled foods like olives, pickled beets, pickled eggs and even pigs feet, stuff like this brings on gout. vinegar in the pickling acting as the acid. These were foods that he ate in abundance. He loved his tomatoes. But as soon as he stopped eating high acid foods he no longer had to take the meds and never again had a gout attack. hope this helps KView Thread

First off, if you don't have one yourself, find a friend that has an icecream maker. There is NOTHING that says country more than fresh homemade vanilla bean icecream and some very chunky, sweet berry toppings or homemade hot fudge sauce. Then , obviously, on to the grill girl! Corn on the cob, stripped down basked in butter and ital seasonings then rewrapped in their husks and soaked in water till cooking time, veggie kabobs or just thickly sliced veggies to roast on the fire, BBQ chicken or pulled pork for sandwiches or out of hand eating, Caveman pops (roast turkey drumsticks) are always good too and can be precooked then reheated on the fire at the party--check out www.thepioneerwoman.com for her Caveman Pop recipe, it's really good. ;Dont forget LOTS and LOTS of very sweet iced tea and lemonade, and some qt jars to serve it into. Then, later after sundown, a campfire with s'mores. Always a good country type choice. AH! and.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY!View Thread

Hi sherm, have you tried differnt types of teas? Is your tea herbal or white, or regular black tea? It could be that you have irratable bowel sydrome that is affected by the tea you are drinking. The big thing is to make sure its the TEA that's causing the problem. Just eliminate it from your daily diet for a couple of weeks, but stay with all the other stuff you normally eat/drink. If you still get gassy, then eliminate something else. One item at a time till you figure out what that trigger is, then begin putting the stuff back into your diet , starting with the tea and going back up the list, waiting at least a week inbetween items. If you still want tea, switch to either a peppermint or spearmint flavored herbal tea. Both of those herbs help to calm an upset tummy and may help with our bloating and gas.View Thread
yes, but you wont know how many calories are in the sauce, and how good the ingredients are..... lol, Plus, homemade is always better. I have a good recipe for a pizza dough, but it has some flat beer in it so it's not to everybodys taste, but I have never had a better pizza dough than this one. So, on that note, I may also have pizza tonight, lol View Thread
