At the end of the last year I decided to start a blog and face the unknown of computers - doing this made me learn a lot, mostly by trial and error. There has been a great sense of accomplishment that went along with a larger amount of frustration. In the end, it was all worth it, and continues to be a joy in my life. Also, at the end of last year, the girls and I found out that we have food allergies. The girls are allergic to dairy, gluten and eggs, and I am allergic to gluten and egg. Needless to say, I was crushed - all my days of not having to plan out meals were over. I can cook, but I don't like to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, but as of late I am learning to experiment with different dishes. Today I was colouring with my friend Sandra and tried some gluten/dairy free waffles that were really great! The true test was when I got home and the girls tried them and shouted 'Yummy!' Finally, the words I have been longing to hear since this new diet has started. One thing at a time I have been replacing favourites of ours, and although the process has been slow, I have really felt a sense of accomplishment knowing that my efforts result in nutritious meals that my family can enjoy.
First I became a blogger, and now an experimental cook. I wonder what else may be coming my way!
Hope you all are doing well; check in with me tomorrow for one of my new creations!
