With the kid’s dad visiting, I have been working on an afghan for Miles’ birthday. I am hoping to get it done by the 15th. I decided to do a granny square in red, black and purple. And if I have enough time, I will make two matching pillows to go with it. Hopefully I will be done by his birthday. I’ll try to get some good photos of it if I can find my camera, and I’ll post them on here. Hopefully he doesn’t read the blog before his birthday.
I’ve also been playing with my Allrecipes membership creating menus. With their dad here, I’ve mostly left them to their own devises and have been hanging at my friend’s house. I was trying to create a meal plan with all our dietary needs in mind, but I gave up. I ended up just making multi-main dish meals.
It’s too impossible to try to find a low-sodium, low-carb, heart friendly, allergen-free (milk-free, peanut-free, corn-free, wheat-free, fish-free, beef-free, etc.) low-fat, low-protein, high-fiber, low-sugar, low-cholesterol meal plan and still have something other than Broccoli on the menu.
I finally said… well, it was a few cuss words followed by “it” and decided everyone can keep making their own meals. Miles makes awesome smoothies, Mendek makes awesome chicken and their dad makes some pretty cool salads. They aren’t going to starve.
But, hey! If you are bored, feel free to try and come up with a meal plan! You’ll have to email me for the allergen list. If you are new to this blog, I’ll warn you… I have 47, Miles 33 and Mendek 26. But if you are up to the challenge… good luck!
