Menu Planning 2017 (4)

We had a great week last week. We enjoyed the sunshine almost every day. We took one day and went to the Omaha Zoo. It was a lot of fun. If you’ve not gone to the Omaha Zoo, I highly recommend it. Assuming of course, you live near Omaha or are driving nearby. This week …

Menu Planning 2017 (3)

Wow this week went fast! We kept ourselves pretty busy this week with a trip to our local zoo, the botanical center to see the corpse flower, music lessons, and cleaning out some of our clothes. It was incredibly, hot this week so I did not really follow my menu plan last week. Hitting 100 …

Lunchables: More than a lunch

Traveling and Eating Out

We’ve spent some time traveling this spring. We have road tripped from Iowa to Ohio and have made a couple of quick weekend trips. Traveling with multiple food allergies was always troublesome. However, the decrease in number of allergies has made eating out so much easier! It was amazing when we did the longer road …

The Hiatus is over….almost

Hello my friends! Wow…Its been awhile since I’ve been around. Sadly its not because my little guy’s allergies have miraculously healed. Rather, I started (and now finished) graduate school. It took me about 2 years to finish. It was a bit more time consuming than I had ever imagined. I have now finished my last …
