"Who do you follow?" threads [split from Manhattan]

So, you think the "team" shouldn't comment on a thread that is mostly about whether of not the thread should exist? To me, it would seem odd if they weren't commenting.

Top Chef and Top Chef masters on Hulu Plus

Just started re-watching the first season. Wow! I completely forgot how terrible Katie lee Joel was. Almost unwatchable.

What's for Low-Carb Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner? #4

Look on epicurious for Perfect Pan roasted Chicken Thighs. It's more of a technique than a recipe. They come out amazing. I usually just add some garlic and thyme to the pan, but you can season them however you want.

What's up with the spelling and grammar police?

I normally agree with what you're saying. The grammar and spelling police drive me crazy. However, you did mention in your post that you never know how to spell that word. It kind of opened it up for discussion.

General Mills - "No Sue"

But it's not hidden. Once you pick the brand you're looking for there is a link on the side of the page. It took ten seconds to find.

Again, my point isn't that hamburger helper is a quality product. Just that when inaccurate information is given, even the very valid points tend to get ignored.

General Mills - "No Sue"

While I agree that Hamburger Helper is gross, the link you provided states that MSG is illegal in many countries and questions why there's no beef in the listed ingredients. I have trouble taking anything else they have to say seriously.

Prediabetic to Diabetic- what to do?

Thanks!! I need to get some control solution, and possibly be more diligent with the hand washing.

Prediabetic to Diabetic- what to do?

Thanks for the encouragement (you too MCF).

I had relatively high readings after lunch and dinner yesterday. Then, today was the first day that my morning fasting level was at pre-diabetic levels since starting metformin and stopping carbs. So I was definitely feeling discouraged.

Prediabetic to Diabetic- what to do?

Just wanted to say thanks for all of your posts. I was diagnosed with prediabetes a few weeks ago and reading these threads has been a huge help.

I've almost completely cut out carbs and sugars, except fruit which doesn't seem to majorly impact my glucose. For the most part my levels have been great.

I've been feeling down the last couple days as my readings have been high and can't quite figure out why. But I came back here and to phlaunt.com, read some success stories and feel a little more hopeful.

Brooklyn Pilsner eruptions rumble on...

I don't drink the pilsner very often, but drink the lager all the time and have never seen it.

Providence,RI - Lunch and Dinner recommendations for 'chowmeet' between two serious foodies from Toronto and Singapore

I strongly second the recommendation for North. I've only been once, but it was probably my favorite meal in the past year.

I tried it on my iPad, and while slightly less bouncy it still bounces quite a bit.

On my iphone I no longer have the "my" button or search or the link to my profile. Well, they're there, I just can't see them. If I click blindly at the top of the screen I can get to my board list.

Catering to relatives who don't want "exotic" food

Mom: Son, for your birthday you can pick any restaurant you want.
Son: Great, I pick Thai
Mom: No, grandma and grandpa won't eat that.
Son: OK, Indian?
Mom: No, grandma and grandpa won't eat that.
Son: OK, Japanese?
Mom: No, grandma and grandpa won't eat that.
Son: Chinese?
Mom: let me rephrase, you can pick any place that has a color and a crustacean in its name.
Son: ummmmm...red lobster?
Mom: great choice birthday boy!!
