Allergen Friendly Meal Plans | Homemade Dutch Apple PieHappy Mother’s Day! My treat for today – I get to take it easy.  We celebrated my son’s fourth birthday yesterday with some fun cow spotted treats (head over to my facebook page to see more photos!). Now birthday season is over and I can get back to normal cooking/baking.

All of our usual activities are winding down. This is our last week of Kindermusik and my mom’s group. Both are a lot of fun…but we are all ready for a break. It will be a bit bittersweet as my oldest will be done with Kindermusik forever.  She started when she was seventeen months old. Now at the age of seven she is graduating.

We also have an ortho appointment, grocery shopping and dance. I might be bringing a meal to friend as well.

We are starting to get some produce from our garden! So far we’ve been enjoying asparagus. Now we have a bunch of rhubarb.  So that will be on my baking list. I haven’t decided exactly what I’m making. Maybe crisp or pie.Abram Birthday

After so much baking last week I’m giving myself the day off today.  The only thing I’m doing in the kitchen is cooking meals. As for the rest of the week, I need to make some chocolates and possibly something else for our last mom’s group meeting. I need to use rhubarb in a dessert. I’m also planning to make noodles, tortillas, strawberry rhubarb muffins and gluten free hamburger buns (experimenting!). I will need to make a batch of sourdough bread as well.

Slowly but surely we are making progress with my little one. Yesterday there were no major nursing issues!  I’m learning how to feed her and what to eat to help the reflux. Hopefully we can keep this up and allow her to heal. She will also be tested for allergies in two weeks. Then we will know for sure what to avoid and if there are some things I can add back in.Mother's Day

Last week was a bit hard on me after cutting out coconut oil. My fat (and calorie!) intake was significantly reduced with that change.  But I have some lard on the way! Hopefully it will be here Monday or Tuesday and I can get back to eating normal amounts and start baking for myself again. I felt like I was hungry all week. I couldn’t make a pie for Mother’s Day since I don’t have any lard or tallow right now. But I’ll make something later this week I can enjoy. At least I got to have the blueberry muffins and pancakes I made for my son’s birthday.

I was also sick Thursday – Saturday. So my energy was very low. Hopefully this week I can get caught up on rest and house work.

Last week I posted a recipe for gluten free noodles. I’ve got a couple new recipes coming this week. Be sure to check back!
