EpiPen Failures Cited in Seven Deaths This Year, FDA Files Show
Itís not just about the price anymore. Complaints about the lifesaving device have doubled since 2016.
By Anna Edney
November 2, 2017, 3:00 AM CDT Updated on November 2, 2017, 10:03 AM CDT
Paulette saw it happen at the playground from several feet away, the panic-inducing moment in 2014 when her 3-year-old son Charlie, who has a life-threatening allergy to milk, grabbed a playmateís sippy cup and took a gulp.

Thankfully, Paulette had the anaphylaxis-stopping EpiPen and was able to quickly use the auto-injector on her son. But when she pulled the needle from his thigh, it was sticking out of the device at an angle instead of being under an orange cover, leaving her unsure whether the lifesaving medicine had been administered.

Not wanting to take a chance, Paulette (who requested anonymity to protect her sonís identity) called 911, and Charlie was rushed to a hospital where he remained for several hours until doctors were sure he was all right.

ďHe was OK, but it was nerve-racking to say the least, not knowing if the EpiPen had worked or not,Ē she said.

Not everyone has been as lucky as Charlie.

Creamy Thai Coconut Chicken Soup Recipe; From Susan Hayes

Serves 6 | Prep Time: 5 Minutes | Cook Time: 10 Minutes

 

Ingredients:

 1 tablespoons oil
1 Med onion, quartered
2 lbs skinless and boneless chicken breast or chicken thighs, cut into cubes (I often use a combo of both for different textures.)
1-2 package (depending on how strong you like your curry) (about 2-4 tablespoons) Thai red curry paste. (I like my curry to have a bit of heat, so I use medium heat.)
2 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1 can sliced bamboo shoots
4 cups chicken broth
2 tablespoons fish sauce or salt to taste
1 can coconut milk
2 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
Cilantro leaves (I havenít bothered doing this most of the time.)

1-2 stalks of lemongrass

 

Instant Pot Method:

Turn on the Saute mode on your Instant Pot. Add the onion and saute until translucent. Add the chicken and saute until the surface of the chicken turns white.

Add the curry paste, red bell peppers, and bamboo. Saute for another minute, then add the chicken broth, fish sauce, and lemongrass.

Cover the pot, seal, and select manual pressure for 10 minutes.

When itís finished cooking, you can use the quick release, but be aware of how full your pot is so you donít end up clogging your vent with soup. You can always let it release normally. Once the valve drops, remove the lid with care.

Now you can add the coconut milk and lime juice to the soup. Remove the lemongrass stalks, stir well. Top with cilantro leaves and serve.

 

Slow Cooker method:

Saute the onion and chicken per above.

Add everything but the coconut milk and lime juice into the slow cooker and cook for 4-6 hours. Add in the last two ingredients once itís done cooking.

Stovetop method

Saute the onion and chicken per above. Add to soup pot, combine other ingredients (again, hold back the lime and coconut until the very end) Bring to a boil, then let simmer for 15-20 minutes.

    1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts or chicken tenders OR 3 cups diced cooked turkey/chicken (leftovers work so great for this)

Here is the recipe for the Microwave Fudge:

          Quick and Easy Microwave Fudge

1  lb.   10x confectioner's sugar
1/2  cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4  cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup butter  (1 stick)
2  tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup pecan halves  or other chopped nuts (optional)

Line a 8 x 8 x 2 in. baking pan or dish with foil
Sift together the 10x sugar and cocoa into a 2 qt. baking dish.  Add the evaporated milk and butter.   DO NOT  STIR TOGETHER
Place in the microwave.  Microwave for about 2 1/2 min. or until the butter is just about melted.
Add vanilla and stir until all the ingredients are well blended.
Pour fudge into the foil-lined pan and smooth over the top. Place in the freezer for about 10 min. to set. 
Cut into 64  (1 in.) pieces.  Place a pecan half on top of each piece or sprinkle with the nuts.
(It is very important to sift the sugar and cocoa together and mix it together so it isn't lumpy.
            MERRY CHRISTMAS !

I don't know about anyone else, but these sound perfectly horrid to me!

Here's the recipe:

2 oz. Raspberry liqueur
1 oz. Gin or Vodka
1 oz. Lemon lime soda or 7Up
1 oz. Cranberry Juice
Gummy Bears
Toothpick
Limes, Candy Canes etc. or other garnish as desired

Combine the liquids in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Cover and shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with gummy bears and if desired add a few more bears to your glass for a liquor infused tasty sensation. Add mini candy canes and lime as desired.

CHEERS!

Jean, I'd love the roast beef; I'm too "scotch" to buy a roast but I love them.

I'm not so sure about Patricia's Christmas drink.  I know I'd leave out the gummy bears and i'm not sure about other ingredients.

Both of you have late afternoon times and I have 11:14 AM and the sun just rose!

I saw that recipe on a Christmas blog and thought I would definitely pass!   :buck2:

I would buy a roast if I could get several meals out of it. I purchase some petite steaks, set of three, cut each of those into three pieces and it gives me nine meals for 16 dollars.

Patricia, I would have help eating a roast because Tom would be here too.  Maybe even Annie.  What I really want is a chuck roast and cook some potatoes with the roast, along with onions and carrots.  My kind of meal.   The prices are too steep for me which is why I haven't had Tom get one.  He did get a roast some time ago, not a chuck roast, and it was quite dry.  We seem to specialize in chicken, sometimes pork chops.  Tom doesn't like fish so I don't ask him to get that but when I eat out, I often get fish.

Patricia - That drink sounds disgusting! *GAG*  What a strange mixture of ingredients?  None seem to go together.  All too cloyingly sweet, except for the hard liquor.  I'd much rather take the gin or vodka and make a Martini. :)

Marilyne, that's what I thought and why I had to post it. I am more of a rum and coke or VO and water type of girl altho I've read books in which a character drinks Lemon Drops which is evidently a type of vodka drink? That sounds interesting.

MaryAnn, I'm not a fan of canned carrots or other canned vegetables, but like you, I really like roasted onions, carrots, and potatoes. It's a comfort food for me.

We tended to have regular meals in our family as both parents worked. For example, Saturday was spaghetti or meatloaf or a similar tomato-based food where mom could use up the leftovers. Wednesday was always a type of stroganoff and Sunday was always a roast along with roasted vegetables. Now, it wasn't always beef, but it was always good!

Patricia, when we were a family, we had a roast on Sunday with various vegetables and mashed potatoes, probably pie as dessert.  This was even after my mother died.  When Norm married and lived away from our home, Dad and I kind of kept up that schedule and we'd work off the roast all week.  When I was alone, I ate some frozen dinners but now I have a couple in the freezer "just in case" but I'd rather have a meat sandwich instead of a full meal.  I do think my appetite is smaller than it used to be.

Your mention of certain meals on certain days, it reminded me of a cousin in Indianapolis (not Joan, Jim's wife, but Joan's brother and his wife) who had certain things on certain nights.  My aunt lived with one cousin for a month and the other cousin for a month and when she was with the one cousin and his wife, she knew what she'd be having on any given night.  Every Monday was the same, every Tuesday and so on. 

Another memory with that same cousin - he was a great sports fan and when I'd visit, he'd have two TVs going plus a radio to hear all of the sports in the area.  They always said Grace before a meal.  This one time I was there for supper and the TVs and radio were going as we sat down to eat.  My cousin started Grace and something happened in one of the games and you could hear his voice getting lower and slower until he stopped and was listening to what was going on in the game.  He did not finish Grace because we all got to laughing. 

Watching the Weather Channel tonight, nothing about the CA fires, but everything about the snow in the SE and South.  We do have some snow and Tom is driving tonight but the weather is not that bad here.

Thanks for the information on Epipens.  I am very allergic to bee and wasp stings and keep an Epipen handy.  The one I have now is 2 years old and I should return it to my Kroger Pharmacy and trade it in.  If I see bees or wasps on my flowers when I'm outside, I go inside.  Unfortunately the Senator from West Virginia's (my home state) daughter has become an executive with Epi-pen and prices have sky rocketed.  My insurance pays for mine, but all public schools (at least here in Alabama) must have one or two on hand because of children's allergies.  I think it's criminal for this company to jack the price up, especially for schools.  (And my exterminator who comes to spray outside and in from March through October is especially on the lookout for any bee or wasp nest). 

Sorry to get on my soap box, but I am very upset about this!

It is that way across the board and recently passed laws making it illegal to try and block some of these larger companies from doing whatever they wish. There has also been fairly recent legislation towards criminalizing whistleblowers!

I cut off part of my roast today and made some vegetable beef soup.  It has turned so chilly that the soup really hit the spot and plenty left for a cold day tomorrow.
