This week’s real food meal plan and agenda focus on playing catch up (for real this time I hope!) and stocking the pantry.
Looks like we’re starting another week with mom and one of the kids not able to make it to church. My little one is still sick. I am praying she is on the upswing. Else we may have to call the doctor tomorrow.
I am very thankful that I am back to feeling like myself. Two weeks of being sick was more than enough for me. I have a lot to catch up on!! Though I woke up with a sore throat. So I may be on the front of end of the cold my little one has.
Food introductions have kind of stalled. My son has had a rough week with his eczema and meltdowns. So I’m not sure if it’s the rice or just dry winter skin and blood sugar issues. I’ll have to do more experimenting this week.
My little one hasn’t been eating much, so I can’t really assess how she’s doing.
I think it’s time to take a break from gluten/sourdough again. I sure will miss my sourdough bread!! I’m so thankful we at least have rice to add back in now for a safe starch.
In the kitchen.
I’m finding it hard to keep up with making enough safe food for everyone that also fits into our rotation diet. I’m going to try my best to get a lot done in the kitchen this week. My projects include:
On the menu.
