My sweet Tyler and I taking silly face selfie photos, while we waited at the puppy ER. He was very concerned about his sweet puppy, and is the best one to empathize with him and his allergies!!!
For the time being, we'll be moving to a "Top 8" free diet, until further testing is done. For those of you on normal diets...
On to this week's yummy recipes!!!
This past week has been one filled with allergic reactions. One to a food that is a new allergy to us in boy #3, and the other to something in our sweet dog Cody.
On Wednesday, after eating a few bites of eggs from our breakfast tacos, Tyler broke out into a rash all over his face and elbox/hand...the same places he breaks out when he has milk.
On Friday night after dinner, Cody's lips and face began to rapidly swell, earning him a trip to the puppy ER and being rushed right in as we thought his throat was going to close. I used to think that "pet insurance" was silly...but now rethinking that. :)
In addition, baby Cuatro has fluid behind his eardrums (4th time!), earning him a ticket to the ENT for a Tubes and Adenoidectomy consultation. We are now fully stocked on baby, kid and adult benadryl, and are anxiously awaiting appointments with all these specialists in the coming weeks...the joys of being a food allergy

One of the easiest ways to keep your kitchen stocked with ready-to-eat meals is by doubling recipes and freezing one of them. It takes almost no extra time to make a doubled recipe and then with just a little storage prep, you've got another meal in your freezer ready to go!
One of my favorite recipes to freeze is meatloaf. Take a look at my tips to Easily Freeze Meatloaf and several of my tried and true meatloaf recipes!

I have a little problem. I can not make a meal for my family that costs more than $5. My mind is filled with prices on my favorite ingredients, and frugal recipes that can be made for less than 5 bucks. It’s unnatural, really. But, my pocketbook thanks me!
